Latest PUBG Anti-Cheat Patch Doesn’t Go According To Plan, Breaks The Game
If there is one thing that the PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds team has been doing as of late, it’s introducing a bounty of players to the almighty banhammer. As of right now, over 1.5 million people have been banished from the game for not playing within the rules, but the efforts continue on Bluehole’s side of things. Regarding the latest PUBG anti-cheat patch, however, some players have been less than pleased with the outcome.
Gamers began flooding the forums after the arrival of the latest PUBG anti-cheat installment. Many were crying foul as they were getting banned from the game without having done anything wrong. Of course, that is typically the first argument to come from those who actually do cheat, but this case is a bit special. Players who had honestly done nothing to get banned…were getting banned.
However, when Bluehole sent out a patch to patch the patch that had wrongfully banned many, it’s now obvious that that patch requires patching with yet another patch. Unfortunately, they’re not going that route. Instead, the team will keep chugging along with all patches in place, leaving players to fend for themselves. Here was their response:
We released a patch yesterday without going through any maintenance to add some new anti-cheat features.
However, we know that some players are having compatibility issues, causing the game to crash or are unable to launch the game.
We are doing our best to resolve this issue. With the issue that is related to the game not launching, we are checking for any conflict between anti-cheat solutions and other programs.
If you are having a Xenuine related error messages or an issue that is related to the game not starting, please use the following method so that we can further investigate this issue.
Go to Start -> Run -> Enter “msinfo32”-> file -> export -> enter a file name and click save. Please upload this file to the following forum thread, we will then forward all files to our development team for investigation.
We will not be removing our recent patch in order to keep blocking cheats effectively.
For now, if nothing happens after trying to launch the game, please add both tslgame and tslgame_BE to the exception list in your anti-virus software (e.g. Trend Micro Internet Security, Avast).
We will try to keep you updated with new solutions to other issues as well.
We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience.”
Needless to say, things aren’t going quite according to plan for the team at Bluehole right now. Patches aren’t patching, bans are banning a bit too much, and nobody knows when it will all get resolved. Until then, good luck out there on the battleground.
