More on PUBG Versus Cheaters

An update on Steam for PLAYERUNKNOWN'S BATTLEGROUNDS discusses the continuing war against those who cheat in the battle royale shooter. They say an update will roll out next week with some enhancements to their cheat detection. The comments below the article suggest region banning China will solve most of their problems, but the developers are taking a more nuanced approach, as detailed in this excerpt:
As you drop out of the airplane and the intense journey to become the last survivor begins, the last thing a player wants to see is a cheater. We deeply sympathize with the inconvenience that our players are experiencing due to cheat programs and we are doing our best to fight those who create, distribute and use cheats. Our top goal is to create an environment that facilitates smooth and unhindered enjoyment of all the aspects of PUBG.

To this end, we have established a dedicated team to focus on combating cheat programs and since our launch on early access we have been committed to detecting and preventing such programs. As part of that effort, we have developed a new anti-cheat solution internally. We will be introducing an early version of the solution on our live servers next week (this is the solution that is currently being tested on our test servers). This solution will complement the systems that have been developed and implemented already. Its main focus for now is blocking unauthorized programs but it will be further developed to broaden the scope of its abilities.

This feature will also block different helper programs that alter the graphics or aid in gameplay in some way. What these programs have in common is that they all hook into our game and transform game files. Programs that are not used to gain an unfair advantage can also be blocked if they behave like cheats.

Some programs that do not affect gameplay may be blocked temporarily as we hone the new anti-cheat features. We are checking the programs that are being blocked on the test servers and will allow the use of harmless programs as quickly as possible.

I played tonight for the first time in months and got killed twice by people blatantly using aim cheats.

Yes, they need to fix this shit.
