It seems that banning 13,000 cheaters per day just isn’t enough to keep PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds‘ servers clean. After promising to “use all available resources to combat cheaters and foster a safe and fair in-game environment,” it seems like developer Bluehole has figured out at least one creative solution.
According to a form post by a known PUBG cheater, it looks like Bluehole has been matchmaking cheaters with other cheaters. This player and other known (or admitted) cheaters have been reporting longer queue times when matchmaking and joining servers with other cheaters in them. The original forum post was posted to the PUBG subreddit.
We’re wondering if these cheater servers are part of Bluehole’s promise to crackdown on cheating. Either way, it’s better than physically assaulting people in the middle of an internet café.
PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds is available via Steam Early Access on PC, with an Xbox One launch scheduled for December 12th.
