"For Honor" is now live for players from all over the world. And with such a diverse multiplayer experience, players might encounter their usual internet troll. One thing to remember is that almost every video game community has rules with regards to behavior that they live by and "For Honor" is no exception. They call it their "Code of Conduct," and if they're just starting a new game or a run-of-the-mill innocent beginner, they may want to check it out.
'For Honor' Code Of Conduct
The Code of Conduct highly demands respect from any Players to other users within the game. Break the Code of Conduct and an investigation will be conducted by Ubisoft staff themselves, who reserves the right to ban, suspend, reset, or delete anyone's account even without prior notice. Non-compliance to instructions from a Ubisoft employee is also a breach of the Code and may lead to suspension or revocation.
It is forbidden to send either a verbal or written message that denotes harassment and bullying to other players. Publishing pornographic or sexually explicit content through the services available within the game is also prohibited. "Any language or content deemed illegal, dangerous, threatening, abusive, obscene, vulgar, defamatory, hateful, racist, sexist, ethically offensive or constituting harassment is forbidden. This includes use of the above on the forums, via the in-game chat, or over VOIP."
Impersonating another player or a Ubisoft employee is also strictly forbidden. Interrupting the flow of the gameplay in the client, forum or other Ubisoft medium, which includes spamming, advertising, or soliciting, is also prohibited. Verbal or written abuse against a Ubisoft staff may result in account suspension or deletion.
Cheating is not tolerated. This includes exploitation of glitches, editing game server codes, and use of third-party programs. Usernames should be appropriate and must not contain "hateful, racist, defamatory, ethnically offensive, obscene, vulgar or sexually explicit nature..."

How To Report Bad Behavior In 'For Honor'
If players encounter any of these inappropriate or contemptuous behaviors or have been the target of such, they should feel free to report the incident. From the game client, select a player in the Social or Scoreboard menus, click on their names and report them. They can report any offensive content made on the chat like racism, sexism, cheating, offensive emblem (e.g. swastika, racist or sexist design, etc), trolling and spamming. Contrary to popular belief, there is honor in telling.
