A PUBG Player Cheated Using ‘Connection Error’: Gets Banned For 10 Yrs


A PUBG mobile player got banned for ten years for using a sly trick to cheat during his PUBG mobile live stream. The player built an uproar on social media that he got banned for no reason. However, PUBG Corp. and Tencent Games has released a video explaining why he got banned and how the PUBG team works day and night to make competition fair.

PUBG mobile has crossed all boundaries and became one of the most popular games of all time. Several PUBG players are recognized around the world for showing their skills in the battle royale game.

However, when people are playing a popular game like that, the unsettling thirst for fame can throw them down into the ‘cheaters’ pit.

One such player used a sly trick to get away with cheating on PUBG. Interestingly, the player didn’t use any illegal tool to cheat during the game.

Apparently, he was playing the game fair and square, but midway through the game, he logs in on to the game with the second smartphone. This switch to the second device tricked the system into believing that there’s a connection error. In that short window, the player used a cheat to kill his enemies; and without wasting any time, he got back to his original device.

Fortunately, the game developers dived deep into his gameplay and understood the trick of the player. As a result, the player got banned for ten years from playing the game.

PUBG Project Ban Pan To Combat Cheating

To combat situations like these, Tencent Games and PUBG Corp. came up with Project Ban Pan. The primary purpose of this project is to carefully watch gameplays to determine whether a cheating method is being used or not.

According to the studio, currently, 8000 accounts are banned for ten years every single day.

From March 3 onwards, Project Ban Pan will also introduce the Death Replay feature in the game. This feature will allow players to watch how they were killed from the perspective of the opponent.
