The old saying “fool me once shame on you, fool me twice shame on me” can be applied to many things in life, including video games.

This is especially true for popular streamer Michael ‘Shroud’ Grzesiek when playing PUBG, as he comically made sure to avoid the same mistake that had previously gotten him banned from the game.

Several weeks ago, Shroud thought it would be fun to hop into a hacker’s vehicle in PUBG and fly across the map.

However, the little adventure ended up getting him banned from the game’s servers for participating in the hacker’s illicit activities, although that was eventually uplifted.

Live-streaming the game on July 16, Shroud found himself in an eerily similar situation as a minivan floated across his screen and through the wall of an adjacent building.

Knowing that he had already been disciplined for that very same thing, he was careful to quickly eliminate the hacker and not leave any room for confusion.

The clip itself has an overall amusing and funny vibe; almost everyone watching knew what was going on as Shroud tensed up when seeing the vehicle fly in front of him.

The way he meticulously aimed in at the hacker before killing him, and his slight chuckle afterwards, are clear indicators that Shroud has definitely learned his lesson.

The Indian government has banned PUBG Mobile, one of the most popular mobile games in the country, along with over 100 more apps with links to Chinese publishers.

PUBG Mobile has a touchy history in India specifically. Countless news reports of teens becoming incredibly addicted to the game have filled Indian media for over two year. The game has been blamed for bad exam results, and in some extreme stories, death.

The controversy around PUBG Mobile in India has prompted calls for the government to ban it in the past, by a student association worried about its effect on education.

On September 2, India’s Interior Ministry banned the game, along with 118 other apps, citing concerns around cybersecurity, as tensions with China rise.

PUBG Corporation - PUBG Mobile
PUBG Mobile was one of the most popular games on iOS and Android in India.

They said the apps were “prejudicial to sovereignty and integrity of India, Defence of India, Security of State and Public Order.”

The move follows India’s previous bans of other Chinese social media apps, including TikTok.

In a statement, the Indian government said: “The Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology has received many complaints from various sources including several reports about misuse of some mobile apps available on Android and iOS platforms for stealing and surreptitiously transmitting users’ data in an unauthorized manner to servers which have locations outside of India. There has been a strong chorus in the public space to take strict action against apps that harm India’s sovereignty as well as the privacy of our citizens.”

Other banned apps, via TechCrunch, include Baidu, WeChat Work, Tencent Weiyun, Rise of Kingdoms, APUS Launcher, Tencent Weiyun, VPN for TikTok, Mobile Taobao, Youko, Sina News and CamCard.

PUBG Mobile is notable though, because of how wildly popular it was in the country. In March 2019, police actually arrested ten students who were playing the game because the game had been banned in that specific region.

“Our team caught these youths red-handed. They were taken into custody after they were found playing the PUBG game,” said Police inspector Rohit Raval at the time.
