'For Honor' Player Wins Tournament, $10,000 Using Exploit
For Honor's Season Three tournament winner used dishonorable methods to achieve victory this weekend, Kotaku reports. Jakub "SB.Alernakin" Palen reportedly took advantage of a long-standing exploit to secure his win. The bug gives the game's Nobushi heroes a competitive edge by making certain attacks un-blockable. "There are a number of situations where unlocking [tech] during an attack can cause it to become un-parryable by the opponent," developer Ubisoft Montreal said in a recent update. "Across the game, we're currently working to remove this unintended behavior." While awarding Palen his trophy, For Honor creative director Jason VandenBerghe threw a little shade his way. "Good job, buddy. Soon you may have to change your play style." Palen took home $10,000 for the win.
