PUBG Mobile was banned in India on 2nd September 2020 and just yesterday the official page of PUBG Mobile India announced that Tencent Games would be terminating all service and access for users in India to PUBG Mobile and PUBG Mobile Lite on October 30th, 2020, in compliance with the interim order of the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology. So PUBGM global server was down in India
The game was made unavailable to users who are even using VPN to play the game. Tencent terminated all services for users in India on their servers for the most part of 30th October saw players logging into the messege “Server is busy, please try again later. Error code: restrict-area” on their screens.
So we assumed that the game is gone for good, and now other games can be monetized as PUBG streams and money scrims cannot take place. But turns out we are wrong.
PUBG Mobile is still playable in India
PUBGM has many different versions, depending on the regions requirements the game has been customized to best fit that region. The main version or the Global version was the one that was banned and removed from the app store. Another popular version which is PUBG Mobile Korean version. There are many videos and posts that are out there explaining how to install these versions and play.
The Global version of PUBG is still playable after the most recent update the error message has disappeared and players are able to connect to their ID and play the game like it isn’t banned. we do not know how this is possible, whether the servers are now reachable because we are being directed to Korean servers or if PUBG Corp have taken over then Tencent servers ??
We may get to know how and why players are still able to continue playing PUBGM
