Bluehole Issues Huge Ban Wave with New Tools
Played PUBG lately? You’ve probably seen speedhacks or aimbots… or both! But the Battlegrounds are actually a little fairer lately. Bluehole Studios has expressed a serious commitment to catching and banning cheaters, and they’re proving it true. A news post (in Korean) on the site inven.co.kr showed that off in the tally: 80,120 accounts got the banhammer just a one week period! That’s a staggering number, and Bluehole committed to an ongoing campaign in a post on the game’s Steam News page. The game should also benefit from the use of software to detect “unusual” patterns. In the post’s own language: “When unusual gameplay patterns are detected from an account, that account will be temporarily suspended and investigated.” With a multi-pronged approach, the Battlegrounds team is now equipped to keep the game cheat-free!
PUBG is growing explosively, largely due to its appeal in China. Want to know what’s next for the game? The vaulting & climbing feature test is delayed, but only because the servers will be up for an extended time!
