    Battlegrounds Mobile India (BGMI) has always been strict with cheaters! And now we have seen the same being demonstrated again, as BGMI has banned 48,847 accounts in the last week. The BGMI ban in India has been slapped on players found to be cheating and downloading the game from unofficial channels or have illegal auxiliary programs on their devices. Not just these, but from January 3 to 9, BGMI had banned thousands of accounts over the same reason. The bans were not temporary, BGMI has announced that these accounts will be permanently removed.

    BGMI made the latest announcement in regard to this and mentioned that 48,847 accounts were permanently banned from January 10 to January 16. Additionally, the BGMI developer Krafton has also shared the entire list of cheaters who have tried to use other tactics to win the game. "Battlegrounds Mobile India will strive to implement strong sanctions with the ultimate goal of eradicating the use of illegal programs in order to provide you a pleasant gaming environment," Krafton said in the statement.

    BGMI recently released a new update for its players that included a number of new features. New ranked and unranked match segregation, a new Livik Aftermath map, weapon upgrades, and more are all included in the 1.8.0 January release. A new measurement has also been introduced as part of the new upgrade to combat cheating in BGMI.

    Anti-cheating measures in new BGMI update

    With the new update, there is a penalty on a player's 'merit' score, which will be deducted for malicious behaviour. Such as, if a player tries to finish a team or indulges in offensive chat, it will result in the loss of merit points. Though deducted merit levels can be recovered based on playtime and contribution, and players that maintain a high merit level will get incentives. Furthermore, the receipt and result of reporting cheats have been improved in order to provide more information to the players. So, beware before you think about cheating or using unofficial tricks to win the game!
