Use of illegal programmes to gain some sort of advantage has resulted in Krafton’s Battlegrounds Mobile India banning over 336,000 players on grounds of cheating. The game, which was developed as a replacement for PUBG after a ban by the Indian government, has also crossed 48 million downloads and is the first phase of its 50 Million Downloads Rewards event.
In an official notice to fans, developer Krafton said it has investigated cases between July 30 and August 5, and banned 336,739 accounts for using illegal programmes in Battlegrounds Mobile India. The accounts are known to be permanently banned and they will not be able to come back in the game after a short time period.
The developer said its team had investigated the cases through its security system and community monitoring between July 30 and August 5 and found some players to be using illegal programmes to gain advantage in the game.
“BATTLEGROUNDS MOBILE INDIA will strive to implement strong sanctions with the ultimate goal of eradicating the use of illegal programs in order to provide you a pleasant gaming environment,” the company said.
Meanwhile, the developer also teased an iOS launch once again, but there has been no mention of any date. Replacing PUBG Mobile India, Battlegrounds Mobile was officially released on July 2 and the user base has been steadily growing since.
An announcement was made by the developer on August 5 regarding a 50 Million Download Rewards Event in the anticipation of reaching 50 Million downloads.
