With the debut season’s first round concluding, For Honor players are curious to see how the cross-platform faction war unfolds. Unfortunately, the Ubisoft servers experienced an unexpected outage over the weekend. Players across all platforms had issues playing the game on Saturday when they started seeing red NAT messages leaving them unable to play For Honor in any capacity.
The Ubisoft outage, which primarily affected For Honor and Rainbow 6 Siege, began Saturday and lasted about nine hours. During that time, players could boot up the game and see the menus, but starting a match or connecting to a game was impossible. Eventually, NATs were restored to their green status and players were able to connect to matches again.
Today, Ubisoft announced that the developer will be issuing some compensation for the period of unavailability. As noted on the game’s official forums, anyone that played For Honor from February 13 through February 26 will receive three free days of Champion Status beginning on March 3. Additionally, a new event will occur over the weekend as well giving players a chance to earn twice as much Steel. The special community Order will last throughout the weekend, as well.
Champion Status in For Honor is a premium buff that can be purchased with Steel or real money. The status provides 25 percent additional experience, 10 percent more experience for group members, more salvage from dismantling, a higher chance for loot at the end of a match, and exclusive emblems. Players that qualify for the Champion Status will see it active on March 3, and players with active Champion Statuses will have three more days applied to their account.
