99% of all the cheaters in PUBG come from ONE country..

A crushing majority, 99 percent, of all cheating in Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds comes from China. It tells the game’s creator, Brendan Greene, for Kotaku. However, the PUBG creator does not want to close China.

Around 99 percent of cheats in the game right now are coming out of China. There’s a massive cheat market not just in China, but around the world. But it’s seen as kind of a little bit more acceptable to cheat in games in China. Also geographically, they just have a lot more people than anywhere else in the world.

Greene is confident that the team will solve many of PUBG’s problems that remain. To solve cheating is trickier than other issues, because there will always be new cheating software. Greene makes it clear, however, that he does not support those who want to ban Chinese players from other regions.

I don’t think that’s a good idea at all. Yes, the majority of cheats come out of China, but that doesn’t mean all Chinese players are cheaters. This idea that just because you’ve got a few bad eggs, you’ve gotta ban a whole country is a bit reactive.

Greene highlights the strength of the Chinese PUBG community that “they love the game“. Shutting them out from servers is not the right way to go, according to Greene. Regardless, in any case, new anti-cheating systems should have reduced cheating by about two thirds.

However, the game continues and Greene encourages players to continue reporting cheating.

If you don’t, we can’t do anything about it.
