Over 3 Lakh Battlegrounds Mobile India Accounts Banned in Krafton Crackdown

The Battlegrounds Mobile India creator announced that it had permanently banned over 3,36,736 accounts between July 30 to August 5, for using illegal programs.

Even, as the new PUBG avatar, Battlegrounds Mobile India, quickly moves toward the 50 million download mark, Krafton has launched a crackdown to boot out cheats from the game. The organization has uncovered its first anti-cheating report for Battlegrounds Mobile India, including the number of players that were restricted by the organization. Battleground Mobile is as of now, at the second situation on the Play Store’s top-grossing games list, just behind the other popular battle royale game Garena Free Fire.

As indicated by Krafton’s first anti-cheating report posted on its site, the organization has prohibited more than 3,36,736 accounts. These players were caught cheating Battlegrounds Mobile India between July 30 and August 5. The organization said that it had collected and investigated cases through its security system and community monitoring, before permanently banning the offending accounts. It remains to be seen whether Krafton continues to publish these reports on a regular basis, although it is saying this is likely to continue.

The organization stated that it would implement to carry out “strong sanctions” in the game as a feature of its objective to rid of “illegal programs” being used on the game. “Permanent banning is conducted every day, and we would like to inform you about the number of banned accounts through this notice,” the company stated on the website. The global version of the game, PUBG Mobile, also regularly suspends or deletes accounts found cheating in the game.

Perhaps the biggest challenge of online-based gaming platforms is cheating, where a few players misuse loopholes in the game or using extra programming and scripts to acquire an uncalled-for advantage over other players in the game. We announced in February that Call of Duty: Warzone had banned 60,000 cheaters in a single day. Platforms that feature battle royale games like Battlegrounds Mobile India and Call of Duty Mobile usually have many gamers that try to ‘hack’ the game to be more successful, which can ruin the experience for other players on the game.
