Back in January, Tencent Games added some anti-cheat measures to ensure fair gameplay by banning players accounts or their IDs. The company also started revealing the names of banned players from time to time. It looks like PUBG Mobile is further taking a stand to ensure fair and fun gameplay by imposing a 10-year ban for players found cheating. PUBG Mobile has revealed a list of over 3,500 players that are banned for using hacks and cheats in the game.
In a press note, PUBG Mobile said, “PUBG MOBILE says, “We have always strived to deliver a gaming environment that is fair and enjoyable for each and every player and prevent cheating. We take this issue very seriously; as such, each account in violation has received a 10-year ban. We would like to remind all players about the importance of fair play, and thank you for keeping PUBG MOBILE fair and fun.”
Along with this, the developer has also requested players to report using the built-in Report feature of the game if they suspect any player cheating or using an unauthorized third-party app to gain undue advantage in the game. The studio has also ensured players that they investigate every report thoroughly to ensure fair gameplay.
“We will continue to enforce stringent discipline against cheaters and publish the IDs of confirmed cheaters,” said PUBG Mobile.
