They say that cheaters never prosper and when it comes to PlayerUnkown’s Battleground , do we have news for you . PUBG is one of the most massivley hit battle royale shooters of its time and continues to be a massive success , it’s playing community is a massive one and keeps on growing so there are bound to be some cheaters in the mix , actually no , there are alot of cheaters in the mix .
Anti-cheat provider BattlEye tweeted this in October last year:
Then numbers increased in November :
December was just as shocking . Talk about ending the year with a bang !!!
January doesn’t disappoint . Someone’s definitely sticking to their New Year’s Resolution :
The Definition Of insanity !
The game’s creator Brendan Greene told Kotaku , that by using “statistics and various other things ” his team was developing a new automated system that will catch cheaters right in the act .
Dohyung Lee, Head of Service Management & Anti-Cheat for PUBG wrote in a Steam community post:
…we have developed a new anti-cheat solution internally. We will be introducing an early version of the solution on our live servers next week (this is the solution that is currently being tested on our test servers). This solution will complement the systems that have been developed and implemented already. Its main focus for now is blocking unauthorized programs but it will be further developed to broaden the scope of its abilities.
This feature will also block different helper programs that alter the graphics or aid in gameplay in some way. What these programs have in common is that they all hook into our game and transform game files. Programs that are not used to gain an unfair advantage can also be blocked if they behave like cheats.
Some programs that do not affect gameplay may be blocked temporarily as we hone the new anti-cheat features. We are checking the programs that are being blocked on the test servers and will allow the use of harmless programs as quickly as possible.
The Pubg team has further taken action by deactivating family sharing for the game. Lee adds that “we have decided to deactivate this feature because we have identified a number of vulnerabilities that are being exploited. Please understand that we are introducing this measure to fight abuse and ensure a fair environment.”
