Tencent banned more than half a million PUBG Mobile accounts in the first week of October (30 Sep – 6 Oct). To add more to it, the Chinese gaming giant has also issued a ban to more than 9600 devices which are subjected to cheating and hacking in the game. They also removed 7,446 online cheat ads with 27,250,430 followers and views across social media that promote cheating.
PUBG Mobile is one of the most-played mobile BR games in the world and there are millions of active players who plunge into the game each day. Some players will use unfair means to get an edge over other genuine players in the game with the help of hacks and cheats. With such heavy loads of userbase, it is humanly impossible to keep track of each player, especially with hackers in the game. That is why the developers have set up an anti-cheat system which overviews each player and bans them from playing if they are found cheating in the game. Players are also given the chance to report any such malicious activities in the game which will be rectified by the system.
The developers will release weekly reports on the accounts which are banned. Let us look at the latest ban pan report.
