PUBG was recently banned by India on september 2nd 2020 alongside 118 more applications, the boycott was because of security reasons.
PUBG MOBILE is no longer available on the Google Play Store in India. The game would not be installed even from APK, in the event that you didn’t already have the game installed anytime, this is because of google or apple not connecting any new ID with the game.
If you recently had the game installed like a large number of other PUBG players you can presumably still play the game. Despite the fact that a few players are griping that it’s not running on Jio network, some face update issue, and so forth yet with everything taken into account the game is as yet playable. Another game that got banned however is as yet playable is Arena of Valor (AOV).
Why PUBG MOBILE Is still playable in India:
The essential reason being that the PUBG servers for India have not been closed by the developers, they proceeded with the servers to run and furthermore as of late declared that they are in chats with the government. This is indictive of their expectation that the game may get unbanned and they won’t lose a large number of players and a solid esports biological system.
Indian Government can still restrict players from playing PUBG MOBILE:
On the off chance that the Indian government needs to totally forbid the players from playing the game, they can do it by-
· Asking ISPs to filter out known PUBG IP addresses from their routing tables.
· Ask DNS suppliers to quit settling addresses for known PUBG domains.
· Ask Apple and Google to boycott the applications across all devices.
Though, we don’t know when the government will hinder the servers, such boycotts may set aside some effort to force. In the event that the PUBG Corps doesn’t shut down the server access for the Indian region, players will have the high ground of as yet playing the game even after the ban without using a VPN. Presently, there is no data on when PUBG Mobile severs are going off. ISPs step in to follow up on the ban — if ISPs block the application, content can’t be shared as the web traffic moves through their workers. More finished if the government needs they can eliminate applications from your phone.
So the government have not taken any steps to catch up with the ban declaration has given the network some expectation that the game will remain.
The legitimate process to seize DNS domains and IP ranges which closes down the applications’ capacity to work. Essentially, all major ISP’s get a request to infuse BGP routes to blackhole IP Ranges simultaneously ICANN hands DNS Ranges over to the Indian Government. When the game is blocked, players won’t have the option to begin another match, login nor update the game.
The player’s interests over the cash spent on the ID’s microtransactions, for example, in-game skins and Royal Pass and plunder boxes are as yet unaddressed by the PUBG Corp. The organization has part from Tencent has our expectations up that they can work out an arrangement with the government to bring back the game authoritatively.
