On the 24th of December, Krafton introduced a new device ban feature in BGMI for fair gameplay. If the system catches user cheating, this feature will ban the user’s mobile device. Earlier, Krafton used only to ban the account.
Since the release of BGMI, Krafton has been struggling with an increasing number of cheaters in the game. However, this new feature seems a great step towards reducing the number of cheaters.
Krafton’s Notice on Device Ban Feature in BGMI
Krafton has been struggling with the problem of cheaters since the game’s release. Hence, in the past few months, Krafton tried numerous new anti-cheat methods to decrease the number of hackers. Some were effective, but eventually, cheaters tackled the anti-cheat. Hence, Krafton had to come with a very powerful punishment to reduce the number of hackers.
Krafton released the new Device Ban Feature on the 24th of December. The content of the application states, “If the use of illegal programs is detected with a mobile device by the newly applied security logic, the device will be permanently banned from using BGMI.”
This statement clears that once the anti-cheat system catches a cheater, the system will ban the device permanently. This new feature is a strong move as cheaters won’t get to play the game on the same device.
Furthermore, the content of the Instagram post reads, “Up until now sanctions were given only to the accounts, but now the mobile devices will be banned as well, making fair gameplay far more effective. We will continuously strive to eradicate any unfair gameplay, especially the use of illegal programs to provide our fans the utmost pleasant gaming experience.”
Krafton is working on eradicating cheaters
Krafton is continuously working to eradicate the unfair gameplay in BGMI. It has a strict policy against cheaters, so the system cannot unban the device before the given period.
Kraton tried numerous ways to eradicate cheaters in the past. However, most of them worked for some time, but the cheaters managed to overtake it later. However, the Device Ban Feature seems something promising. If the device gets banned, there is no way to play the game on it. Hence, we speculate that this new punishment will drastically reduce the number of hackers.
