PLAYERUNKNOWN'S BATTLEGROUNDS Cheaters Banned

A tweet from PLAYERUNKNOWN reveals that the banhammer is being wielded vigorously in PLAYERUNKNOWN'S BATTLEGROUNDS, as they are culling cheaters in the battle royale left and right (thanks MP1ST). Word is:

.@TheBattlEye has now banned over 150,000 cheaters from @PUBATTLEGROUNDS, with more than 8,000 banned in the last 24 hours alone! GG WP

Meanwhile, in a completely unrelated news item, PUBG hit the #1 top selling game of the week with 8,000 sales in a day!

Cue the whiners about how they can't prove people are cheating and that they're banning all these innocent lambs. At one time, League of Legends would do a name and shame of people trotting out all the "I'm innocent!" lies. They would post logs and make the person look like utter trash. I realize that is a ton of extra overhead, but damn it was entertaining.

I'm sure Blizzard could write automation to publicly post the evidence of cheating for each account.

What's the over/under on how many people were banned because they were out of town and their brother got in to their account?

Let your brother play on your account unsupervised, and you deserve whatever you get.

Good, but 8000 of 1m... seems bit low (yes, I mean for daily bans ;p) probably meaning they can't detect half of the cheats.

Exactly 135,983 were out of town, not sure how to calculate the o/u.
