PUBG Passes 3M CCUs

The remarkable success story of PLAYERUNKNOWN'S BATTLEGROUNDS continues to add new chapters (thanks DSOGaming). The Steam Game and Player Statistics page now shows the battle royale shooter has annihilated its own record for concurrent users on Steam. About a month ago the game had just shy of 2.8 million users playing at once, and now the record stands at 3,106,358. Winner, winner, chicken dinner.

How many of these players would immediately disappear if they couldn’t sell items outside of their country?

I’m quite sure the game isn’t $30 in China. So farmers buy cheap accounts, selling loot to Americans. As long as they get more for that sold loot than the account cost them, they don’t care if it gets banned. If they couldn’t sell outside of China, would the cheating drop? Playercount most certainly would. How much of Bluehole’s income is from transaction fees on those item sales?

It’s a system that benefits the developer, and as long as they keep saying “look at all the bans!”, players will believe that the company takes the cheating seriously. But from all accounts, it seems the cheating benefits the developer...why would they take a HARD look at how to stop it?

This is not unique to PUBG, which is why CS:GO is almost always in the top seller list.
