  • Krafton has disqualified or banned 155 teams from BGIS 2023

  • Most of the teams were banned due to ringing, device violation and hacking.

  • This step was taken after a lot of players and teams complained about hackers in the game.


BGIS The Grind has concluded, and the next phase of the event is underway. Designed as a way to let lesser-known teams grow in experience and skill, BGIS allows 2048 BGMI teams to duke it out and fight their way to the top. However, not all competitors follow the code of conduct and have been found guilty of using unfair means. 


After receiving a lot of complaints from players, Krafton has officially released a statement that 155 teams have been disqualified from BGIS due to various reasons, many of which include hacking. Some teams have also received a permanent ban for hacking, and many were in between matches when the verdict was passed. Here's what happened.

Out of the 155 banned teams, the majority of them broke Section 6.2.4. This section talks about "Ringing." For the unversed, ringing refers to the act of a person (or persons) playing from someone else's device or ID to gain an unfair advantage in the competition.


The other reason mentioned was Section 4.1, which refers to the equipment used by the players. Many teams were caught using iPads and tablets to gain an unfair advantage over the competition, which is completely against the fair play rules. Krafton has also permanently banned a few teams and accounts because they were using third-party applications to gain an advantage over their opponents.



This is not the first time that Krafton has banned a team or players. In BGIS 2023 The Grind, Stalwart Esports was banned for alleged slot sharing and ringing as well. Stalwart Esports was trying to make an entry into Indian Esports but the use of unfair means led to them being banned from the event. They had allegedly signed Dynamic Esports but the deal didn't go through and the Dynamic girls' squad played with their own name tags.
