PUBG studio promises changes to ban system after 'stream sniping' uproar (Updated) from Victor Mark's blog

A player was banned for a week after a popular streamer accused him of cheating. Update: PUBG creative director Brendan Greene has issued a statement on Twitter saying that he has seen the game data related to the stream sniping accusation, and that the ban was in fact justified. He also said that the fact the accusers were streamers did not have a bearing on the decision. "No-one gets special treatment, and if the data doesn't back up a claim, no ban is handed out. The community team is committed to ensuring everyone, no matter who they are, has a level playing field when in the game. " The full statement is below. Original story: Last week, one Playerunknown's Battleground player was temporarily banned from the game for team-killing a team-killer. Rules are rules, the admins declared, and thus his plea of self-defense fell on deaf ears. But a more recent and dubious ban, in which a player was given a seven-day timeout following accusations associated with "stream sniping, " has prompted the actual developer Bluehole to acknowledge that the current system of bans and appeals isn't up to the job. As related in this Reddit thread, the trouble started when a player by the name of Lotoe came upon, and killed, an enemy named Shroud, a "popular streamer", along with his partner Summit who a few minutes prior had been dealing with a stream sniper-someone who determines an enemy player's location by watching their flow. Because of the timing, the two streamers immediately accused Lotoe of steady stream sniping too, and his viewers began filing complaints. The banhammer swung quickly right after. (A video of the kill can be seen in this Twitch clip, but be aware that it's filled with the sort of talk that keeps me away from most online shooters. ) The suspend has not gone over well with the PUBG community, primarily because there's zero evidence that any actual offense took place. And in reality the general consensus is that proving it happened is actually virtually impossible. "This stream sniping rule is just nonsense. There is no way you can prove anyone is stream sniping unless they give you hard evidence themselves.Buy pubg skins It's all just word of mouth, " a redditor by the name of twoski wrote.
