PlayerUnkown's Battlegrounds (PUBG) is in compensation mode. In a bid to rectify past mistakes, the developers, PUBG Corp, have announced they will grant 20,000 Battle Points (BP) to those players whose accounts have been "improperly banned" for tackling cheaters. 

Many players have been banned by PUBG corporation for cheating but some among them —who play the game with integrity — also had to bear the brunt. Over one million accounts were banned in January this year. PC content for the game was also delayed as the developers decided to first focus on removing cheaters from the game.

PUBG corporation announced in an official statement, "As you know, one of our highest priorities is working towards eliminating hackers and cheaters from PUBG. We’ve made great strides in this area recently, but unfortunately, sometimes we get it wrong, which was the case recently when a number of players were improperly banned and were unable to access the game for a period of time. For those players who were affected, we will be granting a small compensation of 20,000 BP to your accounts. Compensation should already be showing up in affected players accounts."

But not everyone is happy with the compensation, and gamers have been very vocal on social media as it has also affected streamers who have been streaming the game live to viewers. Some asked for more BP, while others said the compensation offered is pretty inadequate since they missed valuable game time due to a wrong decision by the developers.
