Battlegrounds Mobile India has banned over a lakh of BGMI accounts in a week! Between December 6 and December 12, developer Krafton has reportedly banned around 1,42,000 player accounts. The permanent bans have been done on the account of using cheat measures to gain an unfair advantage in the game. Krafton says more bans will come if players don’t stop cheating.
Battlegrounds Mobile India developer Krafton has consistently banned accounts that relied on cheating measures to gain an unfair advantage in the game. This time though, the developer has released a list of all the banned accounts as well for the world to see. In order to maintain their privacy, the names have been written in a cryptic manner.
Note that this ban is permanent for these accounts and there won’t be a possibility for them to come back to the game.
“BATTLEGROUNDS MOBILE INDIA will strive to implement strong sanctions with the ultimate goal of eradicating the use of illegal programs in order to provide you a pleasant gaming environment,” says Krafton in a blog post.
However, this ban is not as massive as the previous one, which saw a total of 1,57,000 account bans in one go during a week in November. The bans are enforced on players who have downloaded the game from unofficial sources, or using any support app or tool gain unfair gameplay advantage over others.
Prior to the bans, players are always given an opportunity to remove the cheating measures either by manually removing all of them, or by repairing the files from within the game.
In related news, Krafton also announced stopping data transfer from PUBG Mobile to Battlegrounds Mobile India. Players who are yet to try Battlegrounds Mobile India ever since PUBG Mobile got banned in the country are given time until December 31 to make the transfer happen. BGMI has already stopped taking the Facebook login since November 5.
