BattlEye Bans a Boatload in PUBG

BattlEye tweets that an eye-opening number of players have been banned from PLAYERUNKNOWN'S BATTLEGROUNDS by their anti-cheating service (thanks MP1ST). People must really like chicken dinner by the number of them willing to flout the rules to get one. Word is:

Update on the number of PUBG bans: 1,500,000.

Want to hear from Bats or Jag or any of you others if things have improved.

Got killed by a hacker in the very next game after reading this.

At this point I have to assume that cheat banning is just a money making racket by the developers. Ban, sell another copy, ban, sell another copy.
And this is the reply from anyone who got killed by a 'cheater' and their decapitated corpse was not delivered to them in less than 5 seconds.

Banning does absolutely NOTHING to deter cheaters. These aren't people whose Steam accounts are threatened, they are Chinese farming points to sell cosmetic items, it's their job. Getting an account banned slows them down for 2 seconds before they're back at it. Developers know this, they aren't stupid. Yet banning for cheating, instead of preventing cheats, is their preferred method of "dealing with the problem." Hard to argue with 1.5 million new sales every ban wave.

You know, they could just reverse all trades these banned accounts did and that would insta ruin these chinese farmers due to charge-backs. But that would cost them money, banning them earns them money.

Seams like a developer supported money laundering racket to me.
