PUBG Often Bans Over 100K Cheaters a Week

A post on Reddit by the PUBG Community Manager responds to a discussion of rampant cheating in PLAYERUNKNOWN'S BATTLEGROUNDS by revealing that they "often" ban over 100K accounts a week and that they banned over 116,000 cheaters last week (thanks The Loadout). Here's bit of the lengthy post:
With all of that said, what action are we taking against cheaters? Weíre often ban over 100k accounts per week. For the week of 8th-14th of December we permanently banned exactly 116,531 accounts. Do we hardware ban any accounts? Yes, we employ HWID bans as well. Unfortunately, we canít apply HWID bans in many cases and Iím requesting we explain the reasoning behind this in detail, in the upcoming dev letter. We are always working to add new anti-cheat measures. Anti-cheat is always super sensitive, as you donít want to give the cheaters a heads up on anything which may help their cause but will see what we can do and share as much as we can! My last trip to Korea, I asked if some limitations on HWID bans were related to PC cafes (as this is sometimes suggested by the community) and the answer was no.

Sometimes I see sentiment from players suggesting itís some sort of ploy from our side to not HWID ban accounts, so cheaters rebuy the game and we make more money Ė I can assure you, that is not the case. I understand how some players can jump to that conclusion, but if you think about it Ė itís not logical, and itís not what weíre doing. Let me explain - for every cheater, there is another 99 affected players. We have a long-term plan for PUBG, we now have WELL over 500 staff globally (closer to the 1000 mark than the 500) and we are going to support this game for many, many years. One of the most important aspects of the long-term success of PUBG is happy, long-term players and the number one concern from many of those long-term players is cheaters. We want to retain our core players, cheaters are the enemy of our core players. We want cheaters gone too.

there has been cheating/ hacks in Call of Duty games for over 12 years now - & they still rarely acknowledge it nor do alot about it...

I'd be curious to see/hear the stats on cheater occurrences since moving from STEAM over to Battlenet. ...I wonder if it went down or up ?
