With the imminent release of the Battle Royale title for the Xbox One on November 7, Bluehole studio’s PUBG bans over 320K players since its launch on PC.
PUBG Bans over 320K players since launch:
Addressing one of the biggest problems in competitive FPS games, PUBG continues to ban cheaters left and right. Since release, over 320 thousand players have been banned for life, as told by the anti-cheat engine BattlEye. Here’s what their tweet said:
“Over 322,000 cheaters have been banned from PUBG so far, more than twice as many as posted by
@PLAYERUNKNOWN just a month ago.”
In the course of the next few hours, they posted another tweet, listing the location of the majority of cheaters. You wouldn’t be surprised, but here’s the tweet anyway:
“We’re currently banning at a rate of 6K-13K players per day, nearly 20K within the last 24 hours alone. The vast majority is from China.”
Let’s just hope that BattlEye continues to ban players, because cheating ruins all the fun, especially if you get sniped by an sks from over 50 meters. (That actually happened to me, and I rage-quitted). What do you think Bluehole should do to prevent cheating and establish a more secure playground? Sound off in the comments below!
What is PUBG?
PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds (or simply PUBG) is a massively-multiplayer PvP Battle Royale game developed by Bluehole Studios. It pits you against 100 players in a deliberate attempt to survive and be the last man standing. You are dropped from a plane on a huge map, and must hunt for resources and weaponry while killing other players to live. It has been critically acclaimed by critics and players alike, and recently passed 2 million concurrent players on steam. That is the highest peak a multiplayer game ever reached!
