Well, most of the PUBG Mobile players reading this would have surely come across widespread unauthorized purchase services available on social media sites like Facebook and majorly on Instagram. Tencent began the year by issuing a fair warning regarding these services.
When PUBG Mobile was garnering the attention of every mobile gamer at a slow and steady pace, a lot of people saw this as a great opportunity to reap the benefits by starting game-related services. A few of those include online tournament hostings, Purchase of in-game currency via a third party seller and unauthorized purchase of skins. The most popular place where we can see this happen is on Instagram where millions of pages render such unauthorized services to players. Tencent has finally addressed by issue by stating that they are not responsible for any disputes and strongly promote the use of verified ways to do these purchases.
In an official release, Tencent wrote that “Purchasing through unauthorized service is in direct violation of the PUBG MOBILE user agreement, and may result in loss of all illegal purchases and/or account ban, depending on severity. Please use verified purchase methods to avoid these issues.“
They even added that unauthorized services are more likely to take undue advantage of players resulting in problems like loss of account, loss of UC after purchase as well as the illegal use of bank cards. Gamers often tend to spend big bucks on in-game purchases to buy their favourite skins, certain other cosmetic items as well as reward boosters but the best way to do it is via the verified options provided by the game’s developers and not third party apps which run unauthorized services.
The message is quite simple, if you run into some transactional issue while using the game’s official and verified purchase option, your problem will surely be addressed and resolved, but the same cannot be guaranteed for any purchase services outside the game.
