PUBG will lock your hardware if you are caught using cheats.
Gran Turismo 5 Gameplay Preview E3 2009
PUBG Corporation, the studio responsible for developing the hugely successful PLAYERUNKNOWN’S BATTLEGROUNDS game, is definitely fed up with cheaters in their game. As a result, starting next month, it will introduce a much stricter measure against them and permanently ban their PC hardware from the game.
The PUBG game has probably become one of the best selling games in the history of video games. After all, the game has already sold more than 50 million copies as of mid-June last year and the player base is estimated at 87 million daily users. All this despite the fact that its major competitor, Fortnite Battle Royale, has not stopped growing since the game’s launch months ago.
However, the plague that has plagued PUBG is the cheats that some users use to gain an edge over other competitors. It’s likely that sales of the game have slowed significantly compared to a few months ago as a result. And the thing is, nobody likes to see a cheater win a game thanks to their cheats. It takes all the fun out of the game.
Due to the hardware ban, you cannot play cheaters
Previously, if a user was caught cheating, it was normal for them to be banned. However, this user only had to create a new account at that point and was able to use the cheats they were previously banned from. Now, hardware bans are a much more serious problem for users. Because such a ban can only be lifted if the user modifies the banned components. And there’s no one willing to shell out the money a full PC costs every time it gets locked out of the game.
Many of you are probably wondering how this is possible. It’s actually quite simple as each piece of hardware has an ID and a serial number. If a user is caught cheating, both their ID and serial number will be banned by the PUBG servers, preventing them from using any of these components to play the game again. The fact is, there’s no point in changing one just so you can do it again. You must replace all electronic components of the device.
The measure is scheduled to take effect on November 10, 2018. Perhaps, in this way, players will again feel interest in the game, which for several months was not at the top of Steam’s best-selling games, as if it happened before the summer.
