this guy who published his study on reddit had a much better idea. He watched streams and wrote down the names of the players killed by the streamers. He have found that the same names come up again and again. This has one explanation: the streamers run bots or hire players to get into their games and then die to them. The bot commander or the various hired players watch the stream and rush to the location of the streamer, giving him kills and loot. I wouldn’t be surprised if they’d also act as bodyguards or baits to protect the streamer from players around.
Aaaand… the patron saint of the “l33t” in PUBG (especially that dumb Syncaine), Shroud is banned from PUBG for doing exactly this.
Granted, over the time he got more and more careless and obvious, finally talking to his mules on stream, literally telling them what weapons to get him. His mules using flying cars (blatant cheating) probably didn’t help either.
Anyway, that filth is finally off the game and won’t be missed by anyone but the “l33t” idiots who believe that you don’t need brains and can ignore strategy, all you need is good hand-eye coordination.
So we have definitive answer to the rhetoric question of Syncaine “in a game with 50 Gevlons or 50 Shrounds who would win”? The Gevlons of course, because the Shrouds are banned.
