PUBG players who had skins stored in trading website 'OPSkins' have reportedly lost a total of $1 million in value, after the website was targeted by Valve to crackdown on CS:GO trading.
PUBG Corp. actually disabled item trading on Steam, to prevent the growth of skin gambling websites which have caused controversy particularly with titles such as CS:GO.
While this prevented the skin trading websites from profiting from PUBG skins, players' items were still secure and so their money had not gone to waste.
However, when Valve recently targeted OPSkins to essentially shutdown CS:GO trading, but also affected some inventories with PUBG items too.
While CS:GO skin traders were given a grace period to withdraw all their items, PUBG players were unable to do so because of the earlier restrictions imposed by PUBG Corp.
Despite requests to have the restriction temporarily disabled to allow players to withdraw their items, PUBG Corp. upheld the rules, meaning the items were permanently lost as part of Valve's crackdown.
Reddit user u/IAmNotOnRedditAtWork explained the timeline and calculated the total loss at $1,018,456.58, the full details can be read below.
