Battlegrounds Mobile India: Hackers
Hackers have been a constant source of trouble not only in Battlegrounds Mobile India, but PUBG: New State as well. However, it seems like a constant uphill battle for Krafton as the number of accounts turning to hacking or cheating does not appear to be decreasing. In fact, last month, the developers announced that they had banned more than two million accounts in just over a month. Fortunately, it appears that Krafton is doing his part and is not giving up when it comes to dealing with cheaters. Krafton noted that he has taken four steps to try to stop the cheating and will duplicate the same. This includes the introduction of stronger cheating detection and prohibition mechanisms. It also notes that while it used to initially grant temporary bans to first-time offenders, it will now issue permanent permits. Also, the developers will now manually check and ban any account that is used to promote illegal programs among the high ranks in real time. Finally, you will be working with YouTube to block channels that promote the use of illegal programs.
