PUBG Mobile is by far Krafton’s most successful venture as it generated the highest revenue in the month of July beating the other equally popular games such as Garena Free Fire and Genshin Impact. Ever since its launch, it has seen overwhelming response from gamers across the world.
PUBG Mobile was able to provide a boost to the eSports ecosystem as many countries have been supporting the battle-royal title and conducting tournaments in national as well as international level. These tournaments receive massive popularity, however, often players complain of hackers in the game ruining the legit atmosphere in the game. To tackle this, PUBG Mobile introduced the ban pan systme which publishes weekly reports regarding the accounts that get banned due to miscellaneous reasons.
