The initial statement by PUBG Esports read, “In our regular investigation to fight cheaters and provide fair competition in our official tournaments, players in the following teams were found to be using prohibited third-party software. As this is a clear violation of our code of conduct, the teams have been disqualified from the tournament. The teams will not be replaced, and the PMCO will continue as planned with the remaining teams.”

Players in PMCO have had a notorious reputation for using third-party applications to gain an advantage at such a stage, a huge prize pool has always been up for grabs, and maintaining that consistency is important. It could also be that many succumb to the pressure they are faced with while representing their country, but resorting to third-party applications only tarnishes the reputation of the country and the players.
