The MOP Up: PUBG Mobile snaps its fingers and bans millions

by | Aug 13, 2020

The battle royale shooter genre is getting crowded. But as more and more players flock to the genre, companies must do everything they can to make sure the overall quality of the experience is high, and the users continue to return.

After nearly two weeks, we’ve finally got the details on the PUBG Mobile ban.

PUBG Mobile has taken a strong stance against cheating, and it appears to have the community on its side. This week, the game’s developer, Tencent, announced that it has banned the accounts of six million players for cheating. Tencent says that it chose to ban these six million players because they were the most active cheaters, and that – though it has not released data – appears to be true. Cheating in PUBG Mobile is incredibly common, and this week’s announcement is a strong indicator that the game is taking steps to stamp it out.

This could be one of the biggest prohibition hammer blows we’ve ever seen: PUBG Mobile has announced that it has deleted 3,884,690 accounts over the course of the week due to cheats and hacks. Impressive, but it’s not a good sign that there were nearly four million cheaters in the game before it was caught.

ViewAlthough mobile gaming is not a new thing, the phenomenon has recently garnered a lot of attention and become a hot topic in the gaming industry, with the recent surge in the popularity of the battle royale genre.  The reason for this is the rise in the popularity of a battle royale game called “PUBG” (PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds). Millions upon millions of people have played this game, and it’s now the most viewed mobile game in the world.
