Tencent PMCO bans

Tencent has banned an additional 44 teas from this year’s PMCO on grounds of cheating and hacking to bring transparency to the split

Tencent will be organizing the PUBG Mobile Club Open (PMCO) Spring Split 2021’s finals for different regions in the world. The event will see the top 16 teams from each region competing in the finals, once the group stages are over.

What has been a cause of concern for the organizer in the past is the increasing number of cheating and hacking cases plaguing the event.

Tencent goes hard on PMCO hackers

To address this concern in 2021, Tencent has been more proactive in delving a heavy blow to hackers. As per a company circular, Tencent has announced that it has disqualified 44 teams for allegedly violating the competitive integrity and code of conduct.

As a precursor to its strict measures, the company had already disqualified 13 teams last week from the group stages for varied reasons.

PMCO 2021 cheaters made public

This is the first time in the history of the PMCO that Tencent has gone public with a list of teams disqualified, along with the reason behind the move.

Participants had earlier wished for a similar move as a lack of it created rampant speculation among contestants. They should now be pleased with this transparent module started by Tencent for the PMCO.

Teams which have already qualified for the finals will be replaced by the next highest-ranking team. Below are the 44 teams disqualified from the PMCO Spring Split 2021.:
