The developer of PLAYERUNKNOWN'S BATTLEGROUNDS released a patch that will be banning 100,000 players in one single wave following some very in-depth data analysis. PUBG Corporation said:
We recently discovered a new pattern of cheats in action. This week, we performed a thorough gameplay data review of 10 million players and completed analysis of tens of millions of data logs. Through this exercise, we were able to identify over 100,000 instances of the new pattern related to use of cheat and now we have confirmed that it was clearly an attempt of compromising our game. These players will be permanently banned in a single wave. This is an example of additional measures we will be taking on top of the basic detection systems in place. We will continue to check the data logs like this even if it means the anti-cheat team has to filter through hundreds of billions of data logs manually.
The developer informs players that despite the killcams showing the player shooting with no recoil, most of the kill cams are not cheaters and it is created from a bug in the game. PUBG Corportion is currently ironing the bug out to better support the report button.
As for the Blue Zone adjustments, they follow as stated below.
The changes will be tested over a course of a few days on the TS and will then be released to the public.
- Slightly decreased the waiting time of the blue zones in mid-to-late phase of a match
- Slightly decreased the shrinking speed of the blue zones in mid-to-late phase (In this phase, blue zones will now move at a slower speed and the travel time of blue zones has slightly increased due to this change)
- Slightly increased the damage per second of the last blue zone
