PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds Bans Thousand Of Players Daily

PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds developer, Bluehole, has banned over 322,000 accounts since the game started in March. The company’s BattlEye anti-cheating technology manages to filter out between 6,000 and 13,000 bans per day, together with the vast majority of suspended accounts originating in China.

The game has seen unprecedented success since it came to Steam’s Early Access platform: it passed the 2 million concurrent players mark few days before, and based on SteamSpy, over 16 million people own it.

Bluehole Studio has repeatedly shown its seriousness in dealing with cheaters and players who are exploiting PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds in other ways. In September, the developer released an update that ended the run of AFK farmers, who were joining matches but do nothing once the game starts.

They were doing that to farm battle points, which can be used to purchase in-game items that can then be sold for real money in the Steam marketplace. While the transactions are legitimate, AFK farmers negatively affected the overall gaming experience.
