The PUBG hack problem is bigger than China

Blaming the recent surge in PUBG hacking on Chinese players is incredibly convenient for everyone not playing out of China. A second glance shows that battle royale cheaters will only get more numerous until Bluehole get their act togeter.

The story is too old to be commented.

The CEO literally said vast majority of the hacking is coming out of China and cheating is viewed differently over there.

“Battleye have already tweeted out that I think around 99 percent of cheats in the game right now are coming out of China,” Greene told Kotaku by phone. [Correction - 12:45 pm, 12/22/17: While Greene says that the majority of cheats are from China, the 99 percent figure he cited was from Battleye, an anti-cheat provider, which we accidentally omitted from this story. We apologize for the error.]

“There’s a massive cheat market not only in China, but around the world,” he said. “But it’s seen as kind of a little bit more acceptable to cheat in games in China. Also geographically, they just have a lot more people than anywhere else in the world.”

Cheating is viewed as more acceptable across the board in China, not just in games. They're even known to crank out foreign-car designs under their own name brands, and not usually because of any legal agreements with the IP owners. If something as out-in-the-open as a car maker can get away with this, you know it's a problem endemic to the whole society.

They literally do as they please. No integrity with copying or stealing. Not too bash them, it's just a weird thing culturally, and it ruins everything for everyone else.

Selfish culture breeds things like this.

Good people don't cheat.....the thing is a lot of chinese gamers don't cheat, but there are so many people over there that even if a smaller % does it, it still = a large amount of players doing it.
