A 100,000 strong ban wave hits PUBG
As promised, by Brendan Greene, a swift ban wave hit PLAYERUNKNOWN’S BATTLEGROUNDS last weekend, according to BattlEye. The anti-cheat program now boasts over 700,000 accounts banned, which is now double of that announced last month which was 320,000.
The promise, mentioned above, came in the form of an apology from the creator, Brendan Greene, a few weeks ago when he said sorry about all the cheaters and promised something would be done. Well, something was done and we’re slowly getting rid of the cheaters.
"As we announced before, we are in the process of adopting new tools to detect and verify users with unusual gameplay patterns and today, we will be rolling out additional measures," said PUBG earlier this month. "We will continue to permanently ban those who are using cheats. When unusual gameplay patterns are detected from an account, that account will be temporarily suspended and investigated."
BattlEye are not stopping there as bans will continue to come in the future. A telling factor is that in just a month the number more than doubled in banned accounts and that means they’re ramping up their anti-cheating software to cut these cheaters at the knees and stop them from ruining the game for everyone else.
