Epic Games, Garena, Supercell, and Bluehole have partnered with Tencent Games to use these tools, and it already helped over 200 top-quality games achieve success through its innovative technological solutions. PUBG Mobile is just one of those games, and Tencent Games did a high-profile case study on it which provided insights into how CROS products helped it become one of the most successful global titles. Details of the study were provided by Michael Brown, the CEO of Vicarious PR:

• PUBG MOBILE supports over 30 million daily active users 24/7 lag free using INO which is a network optimization and transmission support service specially designed for multiplayer real-time mobile fighting games. INO customizes Dual-Channel ions making sure game data can transfer in the multi-link internal network transmission. As a result, INO helps eSport tournaments reduce the average latency by 90%+ and meet 99.9% of eSports industrial requirements.

• G6 technology supports player cross-continental distribution and game matches in PUBG MOBILE with a 24/7 non-stop global data storage function, featuring less than 3 milliseconds result with over 20M data requests per second.

• G6 provides high voice quality service from GVoice. PUBG Mobile global connection ratio is over 99.8% and crash ratio below 5 out of 100,000.

• WeTest reduced 90% of testing time and human labor for PUBG MOBILE. WeTest used AI technologies to test the top 500 mobile devices which covers 90% of the game user base. This allowed the team to quickly deploy a high-quality and smooth multiplayer environment.

• MTP security provides anti-cheating systems for PUBG MOBILE. MTP has the largest number of cheating tools available in a single anti-cheat tool which helped PUBG MOBILE prevent cheat tool mutation and provided easy identification and quarantine for the hundreds of thousands of active cheating tools.
