With the influx of new players that 2018 brought in, PUBG’s anti-cheat measures have been working extra hard to ban unethical players over the course of January. BattlEye, PUBG Corp’s response to the cheating epidemic banned a staggering 1,044,000 players last month. This was announced via its Twitter channel.
While yes, the number does appear pretty large, in comparison to the number of people actually playing the battle royale title it’s not as big as you would’ve thought. And if you head on over to the steam player count ticker, you would see that this ban actually didn’t put a dent in the player count whatsoever.
In other PUBG news, a new test server is out now for the shooter, to read more about what to expect from it, check out our article, here.
