he Spectating System is updated with addition of a live review mechanism
India, July 13, 2020 – Today, PUBG MOBILE reveals a new anti-cheat measure to improve competitiveness and crack down on cheaters. This update builds upon the existing Spectate Mode, added a peer review mechanism. The game server will now determine in real-time if a given player is visible in the view of the game host, using that information to decide whether or not to transmit the location data to spectators.
The updated Spectating System Upgrade aims to achieve two key improvements:
The Spectating System consists of three separate roles, including the host, game server and spectator. Previously, cheaters were able to take advantage of Spectate Mode by using two devices to pinpoint in-game enemy players and gain an unfair advantage.
But now, the newly added mechanism can determine that if a player is not visible in the view of the host, it will not transmit the location data of the player to spectators.
This upgrade not only eliminates the possibility of unfair cheating by spectating, but also ensures plug-ins will not be able to modify game data, which strongly guarantees the security and reliability. In addition, this solution does not affect the experience of users who spectate matches normally.
Additionally, it has been announced that PUBG MOBILE has remedied an ongoing cheat that will kill players by one-shot. Below is an official statement from the patch note regarding the fix:
“PUBG MOBILE's official team is dedicated to bringing you a fair gaming environment by punishing players who disturb this environment.
Through player feedback, we have recently discovered a new cheat that one-shot kills players then invert’s their screen momentarily. The official team immediately went into action and tracked players who have used this cheat.
Over 10,000 players have been issued a 10-year ban from the Operations team for harming the gaming environment. Our team will not show restraint to those who undermine the fair gaming environment and use cheats of this type.
PUBG MOBILE Operations Team will continue to work hard to provide the best gaming experience for all players who follow the rules. We ask all players for their support in our continued enforcement. Please respect the rules of the game and play fair.”
This anti-cheat measure follows the “Project: Ban Pan” campaign, which was first revealed at the PUBG MOBILE Club Open 2019 Fall Split Global Finals.
The initiative has introduced the Death Replay function in the last update, which allows players to immediately see how they were killed from the perspective of their opponent to further identify suspicious behavior.
By improving the ability to detect new forms of cheating, PUBG MOBILE is taking more stringent action against cheaters with a 10 year ban and continues to enhance the security of the game in all aspects to create a fair gaming environment.
