The ban wave also hit fifteen other professional PUBG players including Sezk0, Cageman, PlayerJones, Papaya, Hoffmann88, Houlow, and Kraqen. These guys won't be competing anytime soon unless they prove that the new anti-cheat algorithm got it all wrong. PUBG Corp. wanted to improve their anti-cheat system with their FixPUBG campaign which ended last month.
The current ban wave has only affected players on PC, XBOX and PS4. There have been no reports of such a ban wave on PUBG Mobile till now. It is to be noted that sometimes regular players are also banned by accident and we may see some players being unbanned in the coming days.
