The PUBG Mobile Club Open (PMCO) Spring Split 2021 is beginning with its finals for different regions in the world. After intense group stages, the top 16 teams from each region will compete in the finals.

The PMCO has been criticized in the past for being rampant with hackers and cheaters. The spring split for this year was no exception. This year, however, Tencent seemed more vigilant in cracking down on these hackers. In a ruling today, the company announced that it has disqualified 44 teams for violating the competitive integrity and code of conduct.

Besides these, 13 teams were also disqualified last week from the group stages for different reasons.

This is the first time in the history of the PMCO that Tencent has publicly disclosed a list of teams that have been disqualified, along with the reason behind this. In past splits, this wasn’t the case which led to a lot of speculation in the community.

This transparency is something that players have been requesting for a long time. It seems that Tencent is finally listening to them.

Here are the 44 teams that have been disqualified from the PMCO Spring Split 2021. The teams which have qualified for the finals will be replaced by the next highest-ranking team.
