That’s a lot of PUBG BP!
PUBG’s Battle Eye system banned over a million players to date, but the cheating problem still persists. Just recently, PUBG added a new anti-cheat to their servers. Unfortunately, it might have taken its job a little too seriously. Apparently, the long list includes innocent players too.
In light of these false bans, PUBG corp. has decided to unban those players and compensate them with 20,000 BP.
In a Steam Dev post, they said:
“As you know, one of our highest priorities is working towards eliminating hackers and cheaters from PUBG. We’ve made great strides in this area recently, but unfortunately sometimes we get it wrong, which was the case recently when a number of players were improperly banned and were unable to access the game for a period of time.
While we will continually work to improve these cheat detection methods, we ask for your patience on the hopefully few occasions where a false ban happens.
For those players who were affected, we will be granting a small compensation of 20,000 BP to your accounts.”
“We apologize for anyone who missed out on game time due to this error and hope that this compensation helps make up for that lost time.”
PUBG corp. finally concludes by revealing which players were affected.
The criteria for receiving the BP is if the players:
- Logged into the 188.8.131.52 version between June 16, 11am – 1:30pm PDT / June 16, 8pm – 10:30pm CEST / June 17, 3am – 5:30am KST
- Were wrongfully banned due to internal ban detection logic
In other news, PUBG has been put on sale for the first time since its release. The game is 33% off as of now. I would wait for the summer sale to begin if I were to buy it, though its unlikely that the discount on the game will increase.
