Tencent And Chinese Police Stop Cheaters

Tencent teams up with Chinese police to take down a video game cheating ring. The group was known as “Chicken Drumstick,” and made their money from monthly subscriptions to their cheating services. They made $76 million by offering cheats for games like Overwatch, Fortnite, and Call of Duty Mobile. During the arrest, authorities seized $46 million in assets. Captured properties include several luxury cars.

It is reassuring to see the Chinese government cracking down on cheaters, albeit at Tencent’s request. Players of games like Ark and PUBG have seen many games collapse due to rampant cheating. Stopping cheaters benefits both companies and players. Hopefully, more governments will see this as a real threat.

  1. Okay, heads up. Yes, I know D Va is South Korean. I used this image because Overwatch was one of the affected games.
