Krafton bans 66,233 accounts from BGMI

Krafton is committed to the idea of ​​fair gaming and has taken similar steps in the past to reduce instances of cheating. For that, the BGMI publisher has issued permanent bans on 22,013 accounts from March 21 to March 27. Before that, the company banned 7,057 accounts from March 14 to March 20. BGMI bans have become a necessary tool for the company to practice fair play in the game.

However, the biggest expedition against cheaters was undertaken in January by Krafton. Between the period of January 24 and February 6, the company permanently banned a total of 171,188 from Battlegrounds Mobile India. So far, the company has banned a total of 5,69,420 accounts.

These BGMI bans are issued as a result of reports received by other players or as a result of the game developers noticing malicious behavior on the part of the player. Often, some players installed third-party programs to acquire unfair skills, such as infinite ammunition, camouflage, speed and others. This would lead to frustration for the players as they would have difficulty beating them. The bans are a welcome move by Krafton as many players have complained about the hackers and cheaters before.
