New anti-cheat system bans 1,754,008 accounts this week
PUBG Mobile’s popularity is growing exponentially day by day, as it was the highest-earning game of 2020 and added more than 232 million new players to its existing userbase.
With so many active players, it is important for the game to be free of cheaters. To tackle such cheaters and maintain fair play, PUBG Mobile developers have some solid anti-cheat systems in place.
A few days back, they also revealed that they had taken action against online PUBG Mobile cheating material and removed over 125,000 cheating videos and posts from social media platforms. They also publish a weekly report informing fans about the action they have taken against cheaters.
PUBG Mobile has published its eighteenth report for cheaters who have been banned in the previous week, i.e., from January 1st to January 7th. The report revealed that over 1,754,008 accounts have been banned from PUBG Mobile for defrauding, with each receiving a permanent suspension.
The first report was posted on August 29th, where 1,273,152 accounts were suspended, and the second one saw 1,838,223 accounts getting the boot.
Last week, PUBG Mobile suspended 2,395,953 accounts for cheating. This week, they have banned 47% fewer defrauders as compared to the previous week.
