The For Honor tournament community is tired of the Peacekeeper being overpowered, and Major League Gaming has heard the complaints loud and clear.

According to many who play the game, the Peacekeeper’s light attack in For Honor is being spammed by players, making it a tough character to beat – if not impossible sometimes.

All you have to do is look through For Honor subreddit and you will find many a post dedicated to the class. You can also look at the video above from YourFriendlyKebab, which was posted on the MLG forums.

One MLG forum user, Clint44mag, started a thread a few days ago stating the Peacekeeper should be “banned until a re-balancing patch comes out,” for a variety of reasons.

“The Peacekeeper causes a lack of diversity, is abnormally strong compared to the other characters, and reduces the competitive spirit of For Honor,” wrote Clint44mag.

You can read his entire post through here.

In response, an MLG Online supervisor has decided for online tournaments, the firm will “try running a tournament with Peacekeeper banned,” and send a poll out for feedback. If the community is “largely in favor of banning the hero,” it will do so.

Hopefully, Ubisoft is paying attention, and the Peacekeeper will finally get some much needed balancing.
