Team FreeStyle to miss PUBG Mobile World League due to game ban in Pakistan

Team FreeStyle to miss PUBG Mobile World League due to game ban in Pakistan

The Pakistani team FreeStyle is not allowed to play PUBG Mobile World League due to the ban imposed on game by PTA.


The message was conveyed to the team manager FS Black on discord which stated the following:

Unfortunately, the team won’t be allowed to play in the PMWL as long as the game is banned in Pakistan. We are very sorry for this, but we cannot go against the government’s laws. The team will still receive weekly attendance prize money even if you are not playing. Let’s hope the government unbans the game as soon as possible.

PUBG Mobile was recently banned in Pakistan on a temporary basis due to health concerns of the younger generation. The decision took a heavy toll on Team FreeStyle who won PMCO Spring Split Pakistan and gained their slot in World League but unfortunately will not be able to play it.

The team leader and manager FS Black expressed his concerns on this issue and they are pursuing this matter to unban the game.

Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) banned the game last week after receiving many complaints. This decision impacted the PUBG Mobile Esports officials to convey their decision to team FreeStyle as they need to abide by the government laws and regulations.

The team is promised their weekly attendance prize money even if they are not playing which is a good news on their side.
