We have known that the latest craze in the gaming world is a game called PlayersUnknown Battleground. This game is commonly known as PUBG and it was first available on PC while it came to Android and iOS earlier this year named as PUBG Mobile. Now, this also means that it is one of the most streamed games online as well.
Online game streaming is a huge industry where gamers share their gameplay, live or recorded, on sites such as YouTube, Twitch or others.
Now, PUBG also has a huge community of online streamers and the Top Streamer of PUBG is a person named Michael Grzesiek, popularly recognized as “Shroud” on Twitch which is debatably the best platform for game streamers. However, Micheal Grzesiek reported a very unusual incident that happened with his PUBG account yesterday.
He saw that he was banned from playing the game for a month. On finding the reason, he realized that the ban was due to the fact that he was playing alongside a hacker. Behind the scenes, there have been growing reports of banning by PUBG’s moderators for hacking. This also means that the company has zero tolerance towards any sort of modding or hacking.
However, it was later found out that the ban of Michael Grzesiek as he was seen logging into the game but he is not known to have played the game yesterday. On reaching out to PUBG for the reason why Shroud’s account was banned, the company’s spokesperson said that they do not disclose the reason for someone’s penalties but they suggested that it is due to the violence of PUBG’s Rules of Conduct.
Also, the screenshots of “Shroud” playing with the hacker were floating on the internet which clearly showed that the location of a hidden player was possibly known to Micheal via some sort of cheats passed on by the hacker.
