The banning of gaming app PUBG is still just speculation but gamers are already worried and its loyal fans have taken to social media to express their feelings with rib-tickling memes and some of them are extremely hilarious.
Many gamers have opted for Player's Unknown Battle Ground (PUBG) as a profession and make money by streaming online through YouTube. Now they fear losing out on their one source of income.
Memers are taking digs at the government that all those who were busy playing the game might now start asking for jobs once the game is banned.
While gamers are already looking for Indian alternatives to the game, memers are speculating that Reliance Jio might come up with a more "desi" version.
PUBG, which has 10-15 million daily active users and 30-40 million monthly users in India, was developed by Irishman Brendan Greene and designed and developed by South Korean company Bluehole.
The mobile version of the game has been developed by Chinese company Chinese Tencent, which holds 10% stakes in Bluhole.
India banned 59 Chinese apps, including TikTok last month. As many as 47 more apps were banned last week and the government is looking over another 250 apps for security threats. The move comes as India and China have been in a border standoff along the 4,057-km Line of Actual Control since the last week of April.
Meanwhile, in neighbouring Pakistan, the government has already banned the gaming app and gamers have flooded social media with tweets, using the hashtag #ImranKhanPUBGKholo. The government banned the online multiplayer game stating that it was addictive and poses a threat to the mental well-being of young people.
