Vincent Wang, General Manager of Global Publishing, Tencent Games, affirmed the company's dedication to fight cheating at every level. “Like our players, we've always had a zero-tolerance policy for cheating. To protect the fair and competitive environment of the game, creating a fair and even playing field is always one of our highest priorities,” said Vincent Wang.

According to the company, the amount of reported accounts has decreased by 90% compared to the peak after the new initiative. There are 8000 accounts receiving a 10-year-ban every day.

The next PUBG Mobile will feature 'Death Replay,' an effective way to spot cheaters

To show that Tencent is willing and capable of tackling cheaters in their game, they recently released an entertaining BTS video. The video reveals how the anti-cheating team deals with suspected cheating under new security measures under "Project Ban Pan".

The video follows a real-life situation of a hacker who got his 10-year-ban and how the team tracked down evidence of cheating. It is an entertaining, albeit quite dramatic, retelling of how a crafty hacker almost got away with it. Fortunately, the PUBG Mobile team figured out his ruse. Check out our report on the video here.

Last but not least, one of the most promising features of "Project Ban Pan" will be the Death Replay for the upcoming 0.17.0 update. It will come out on March 3. "Death Replay" allows players to see how the opponent killed them from the opponent's perspective.
