PUBG Mobile, the highest revenue-generating mobile title of 2020, has its own share of problems with cheaters. As the game is highly popular worldwide, with millions of daily active players, it is hard to keep a tab on every player. To combat cheating, the officials have put a few systems in place to detect wrongdoers.
Cheating also affects the esports aspect of the game, as it is hard to tell who has qualified via cheating and who has done so fairly. To counter this issue, PUBG Mobile has introduced a new anti-cheat system.
Players can report cheating via the in-game report feature or through several social media handles. A team of observers, after reviewing the video proof, will then take the necessary action. Anyone caught cheating will be banned for ten years.
The officials also publish a weekly report informing fans of the action they have taken against such cheaters during a particular week.
PUBG Mobile has published its eleventh report for defaulters who have been banned over the last week, i.e., from 6th November to 12th November.
This week's report revealed that over 1,431,996 accounts were banned from PUBG Mobile for defrauding, with each one receiving a permanent suspension.
The first report was posted on 29th August, in which 2,273,152 accounts were suspended. The second had 1,838,223 suspended accounts, while 1,964,540 accounts were prohibited for cheating last week.
