Popular streamer Shroud has been banned from PUBG because of playing with a hacker.
It was reported yesterday that Shroud and Wadu were playing PUBG with a hacker. The action happened on Twitch for everyone to see. Shroud was fully aware that he was playing with a hacker. Shroud along with the hacker was driving a flying car and also got a kill when the hacker told him where a player was hiding.
This, of course, sparked some angry reactions, both on Reddit and on his Twitch chat. Many users were commenting “Banned” in the chat. And he indeed has been banned.
In a stream, Shroud confessed that he indeed has received a temporary ban. He said: “I was trying to have a good time. Obviously, I knew what the fuck I was doing. It wasn’t a great idea. It seemed like a great idea. But it wasn’t a great idea. I’m sorry to those peeps that are really upset with me, with all the, you know, flying around with the cheater and stuff”. He also informed his viewers that he has received a one month ban form PUBG.
The reaction on Reddit was on both the sides. Some believed that he was an entertainer and he just wanted to have some fun. Shroud also mentioned that he had already met the hacker three times that day and decided to have some fun with him.
Others say that Shroud deserved the ban for flouting the rules of the game and cheating.
And others yet say that he was highlighting the rampant cheating problem in PUBG.
“It really goes to show that PUBG, full offense to you guys, don’t give a shit because that guy should have been banned immediately,” Shroud said in the stream.
Even though BattlEye, PUBG’s anti-cheat, has banned a lot of players, cheating still remains rampant in the game. If this fiasco indeed makes them take stricter actions against cheating, it would be a win-win for everyone.
