PUBG Mobile has been taking drastic steps to spot cheaters in the game. Players using third-party applications have been awarded bans, and timely reports have been updated. However, when it happens at a competitive stage, players start questioning the integrity of official tournaments. This time around, PUBG Mobile Esports has banned 7 teams and two individual players for using third-party applications and using different identifications.
The initial statement by PUBG Esports read, “In our regular investigation to fight cheaters and provide fair competition in our official tournaments, players in the following teams were found to be using prohibited third-party software. As this is a clear violation of our code of conduct, the teams have been disqualified from the tournament. The teams will not be replaced, and the PMCO will continue as planned with the remaining teams.”
