Cheating during online gaming is always unethical. Battlegrounds Mobile India has announced strict measures against illegal programs, cheats, cheaters and is still making efforts to keep the peace and has banned a large number of illegal accounts that engage in cheating and being a nuisance to others. According to Krafton, it has banned 25 lakh BGMI accounts over a 40 day period.
The company’s move is intended to eliminate cheating and cheaters from Battlegrounds Mobile India. Krafton in its announcement said, “Staying true to its zero-tolerance policy towards cheaters, KRAFTON Inc., the South Korean video gaming giant, has removed 25 Lakh accounts in just over a month to eradicate cheating on Battlegrounds Mobile India”.
It should be noted that since its last announcement between October 1 and November 10, Krafton has banned 25,19,692 accounts permanently and 7,06,319 accounts temporarily. To combat cheating, the South Korean developer has also listed out the steps taken to remove cheaters from Battlegrounds Mobile India who were using unfair means to beat out other players, therefore, undermining the overall experience.
Here are the steps taken by Krafton to remove cheaters from Battlegrounds Mobile India:
- More powerful cheat detection and banning mechanism, which allowed the system to follow cheaters in real-time and ban users who used unlawful methods.
- Permabans, which replaced all interim bans with permanent bans, leaving no possibility for a second chance.
- Manual verification and banning of accounts that use or promote illegal programs among high-rankers. The team is monitoring such accounts in real-time and banning them permanently if any illegal program is traced.
- Real-time monitoring of YouTube for any channels that promote illegal programs and blocking the channels immediately and if any cases are found.
So if gamers are using cheat tools or any other unfair means in BGMI they will be banned at some point if not immediately. The developer also advises players not to give access to their accounts. Aside from the obvious ramifications of losing access to social media, it may be used to test cheating tools and their account will be banned.
Krafton is also monitoring YouTube in real-time for any channels that promote illegal programs and if any are discovered, their channels will be blocked immediately as the company is working with YouTube.
