PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds is reaching all kinds of milestones as of late. Not usually has it surfaced 15 million sales and 2 million point players on Steam, though it’s also banning cheaters during a lightning-fast pace.
This is according to a handful of new tweets from BattlEye, a third-party anti-cheat customer that handles Battlegrounds‘ ban-hammer. According to BattlEye, over 322,000 players have been criminialized from Battlegrounds for cheating, with a stream rate of between 6,000 and 13,000 bans per day. Most recently, BattlEye criminialized over 20,000 cheaters on Oct 12th alone.
If we couldn’t tell, this is a towering volume of players to be criminialized from one game, let alone in such a brief duration of time and with such regularity. The “vast majority” of players banned, according to BattlEye, are formed in China, that creates clarity deliberation a lengths that Chinese players go to to find adequate servers and a volume of issues that this has caused.
Battlegrounds isn’t a usually diversion that BattlEye monitors. Back in Aug 2016, Rainbow Six Siege started regulating BattlEye to strengthen opposite cheaters and finished adult banning 3,800 within the initial week of application.
Thankfully, when Battlegrounds comes to Xbox One someday in late 2017, these kinds of anti-cheating measures will not be necessary.
PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds is accessible now on PC.
