In order to prevent cheating, South Korean gaming giant Krafton said that it has permanently banned more than 1.4 lakh accounts in less than a week. The company said that it banned 1,42,766 accounts from December 6 to 12 on Battlegrounds Mobile India (BGMI).
Krafton said that the company is taking necessary action to curb cheating through various methods. It noted that the company is going to introduce stronger cheat detection and banning mechanisms.
Earlier in November, the company said that it has temporarily banned a total of 7.06 lakh accounts during the same time period to provide a fair gameplay climate to each and every player.
The information available on the Battlegrounds Mobile India read, “At the end of September, we promised you that fair gameplay has always been and will be our priority…Cheaters have no place in BGMI and in order to provide a fair gameplay environment to our players, we’ve been taking severe measures to remove cheaters from the game.”
Meanwhile, according to the company, December will be the last month that PUBG: Mobile players can transfer their old game data to Battlegrounds Mobile India.
The players will lose all of their previous purchases and achievements to BGMI. Krafton urged the players to link the accounts as soon as possible, in case they have not, it said.
Users can only transfer the data only if PUBG: Mobile players are linked to their Twitter account. The players who use visitor accounts are stuck between a rock and a hard place as this implies their progress from the past game will be lost perpetually and they should start from the very beginning once more.
