Scout responds to giving second chances to cheaters

Scout has been at the forefront when talking about players who are cheating and gaining unfair advantages. He had also talked about teams who were cheating in the BGMI India Series (BGIS) 2023 event and was one of the first few to raise his voice against the issue.

In a recent , Scout talked about some of the fans bearing sympathy for cheaters when instead strict action should be taken upon such miscreants. He said, “When strict action is taken on cheaters some fans do come in my chat and say that a certain player should get a second chance. There were people who were saying that Saggy [a player disqualified for cheating] should get second chances. I do not understand what is the need to give second chances to such players. If he has gotten clean and doesn’t cheat anymore, it is good for him but a crime is a crime.”

Krafton had taken steps in the past during the Battlegrounds Mobile India Series (BGIS) 2023, where it disqualified many teams for breaking rules and regulations and fans are hoping for a similar action to be taken after the conclusion of the Battlegrounds Mobile India Pro Series (BMPS) 2023.
