Developer Krafton for Battlegrounds Mobile India has said that they have banned approximately 50,000 accounts in the week ending January 16. Battlegrounds Mobile India (or BGMI for short) is a mobile game developed specifically for gamers in India. Hackers have become a major issue in the game, negatively impacting the playing experience for everyone.
Earlier Monday, developer Krafton announced in a post titled Sanction Against Cheaters that they had permanently banned 48,847 users from the Indian server of their mobile Battlegrounds game.
Krafton promises that “Battlegrounds Mobile India will endeavor to enforce tough sanctions with the ultimate goal of eradicating the use of illicit apps in order to offer you a pleasant gaming experience,” according to the post.
If a player is found to have gotten BGMI from an unapproved source or to be running unlawful auxiliary software, Krafton will permanently ban them from playing. Game hackers are a major issue for all game devs. The popular battle royale game series created by Krafton is experiencing the same difficulty with its mobile games.
They keep a close eye on the game’s hackers and cheaters. A ban strategy for the account will be implemented if any suspicious activity is discovered. Over 70,000 accounts belonging to Indian players of Battlegrounds Mobile were blocked by Krafton between January 3 and January 9.
In other developments, the popular battle royale game Battlegrounds received significant updates in the month of January for Battlegrounds Mobile India. Since this is publisher Krafton’s first collaboration with Sony Pictures, one of the greatest features of the multiplayer game comes courtesy of Spider-Man: No Way Home.
Different new events are being implemented into the game as part of the update. Each player will be able to use the rating shield once each day while playing in the new mode.
The newest patch for Battlegrounds Mobile, version 1.8, is now available for download on both the Google Play Store and the Apple App Store for users in India.
