BGMI is still Chinese game ?? Sending Data to Chinese Servers? Check Now


Krafton finally opened the early access for its PUBG Mobile alternative Battlegrounds Mobile India (BGMI) in India for all Android users recently. 

Now, it has been found that BGMI is allegedly sending data of Indian Android players to various Chinese servers, including one owned by Tencent.

Now, for the unaware, the Indian government banned the uber-popular title PUBG Mobile in India last year due to security reasons. 

Following the ban, Krafton, the parent company of PUBG Mobile, started teasing an alternative version that did not have any involvement by a Chinese company late last year. 

The developers then finally released Battlegrounds Mobile India, and here’s how you can install it right now if you haven’t already.

However, as per a recent report from IGN India, the data of Indian players is being sent to Chinese servers located in Beijing. 

The game also has ties with the Tencent-owned Proxima Beta located in Hong Kong (this could possibly be to enable PUBG Mobile account transfer to Battlegrounds Mobile India), as well as Microsoft Azure servers in the US, Mumbai, and Moscow.

IGN discovered the game’s links to China by installing a data packet sniffer app on an Android device before playing a match of BGMI. 

The data sniffer app was set to log all the servers that the game communicates with during a match.

 Following this, the publication did a whois search, which is a search engine for tracking the origin of an IP address, for the logged servers.

BGMI players spot Chinese text and PUBG Mobile references in-game: report 

Battlegrounds Mobile India is now available in India. Krafton had rolled out the early access of the PUBG Mobile remake a couple of weeks back and in this time frame, 

we have witnessed a series of bugs reported by beta testers. In the latest development, it has been reported that community players have spotted Chinese text in-game as well as references to the now-banned PUBG Mobile. 

According to a report from MySmartPrice, several players have witnessed Chinese text appearing in some of the in-game dialogue boxes. Meanwhile, some players have reported that the game is still referring to PUBG Mobile instead of Battlegrounds Mobile India in some places.
