PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds has received world-wide reception in the shortest time possible. The battle-royale style game has a lot to offer to its followers. There is one problem that most end up facing, which is the problem of cheating. Numerous PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds players feel that the game’s cheating problem mainly arises from China. What’s more? Even the creator of the game, Brendan Greene agrees with it.
A report by Kotaku quoted Brendan Greene as saying, “Around 99 percent of cheats in the game right now are coming out of China. There’s a massive cheat market not just in China, but around the world. But it’s seen as kind of a little bit more acceptable to cheat in games in China. Also geographically, they just have a lot more people than anywhere else in the world.” The PlayerUnknown’s Battleground has been made available for users through the Early Access program for long. It was only recently launched on PC platforms. The game comes along with many issues that the developers still have to resolve. For starters, there are problems with the server of the game. However, it is only a matter of polish. It can quickly be determined. The cheating problem, on the other hand, is a little more difficult than one can imagine.
PUBG has witnessed a surge regarding cheaters, especially in the recent months. Some even go on to advertise their hacking techniques and methods online or also to ardent players. Experts recommend that players emerging from China could permanently be banned. However, the creator doesn’t precisely agree with that solution. “I don’t think that’s a good idea at all,” he said. “Yes, the majority of cheats come out of China, but that doesn’t mean all Chinese players are cheaters. This idea that just because you’ve got a few bad eggs, you’ve gotta ban a whole country is a bit reactive.”
