A PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds streamer was banned because houses didn’t load

battlegrounds interview

The PUBG community is in uproar (again) because another streamer just got hit with Bluehole’s banhammer. This time, it’s a streamer called Destiny - he was banned because walls didn’t load when he started the game, meaning he was free to see and shoot pretty much everyone on the map.

Destiny didn’t shoot people, though. He headed to Pochinki, the most built-up area in the game, and proceeded to run people over. To them, they were safe inside of houses, but to him it was open season.

The streamer didn’t cause the bug, but he knew he was doing something wrong. I mean, count how many times he says he’s going to get banned in the video:

The reason the community are so angry about the whole thing because it wasn’t Destiny who caused the bug, that’s on the developers. Not only that, but what was he supposed to do? Kill himself? Close the game?

Then there’s the case of Grimmz, another streamer who showed viewers how to shoot underwater - an unintended mechanic. He’s knowingly causing and taking advantage of an exploit, yet he’s had no sanctions. 

No doubt there will be another controversy in the PUBG community soon.

Or... fix your shitty game and stop punishing people for your shortcomings. I mean, this is still a giant QA since it's still in E.A.

"bug abuse" is a simple and common rule for every online game. he was supposed to wait for the walls to spawn or restart the match

Absolutely he should have closed the game. Even if, even IF you don't ban him for using an exploit, they should still ban him for griefing. He knew EXACTLY what he was doing. The ban was well deserved.

"but what was he supposed to do? Kill himself? Close the game?"

Yes, thats exactly what he was supposed to do... Bug abuse is against the ToS/EULA, so is griefing, he did both.

The ban is deserved and justified.
