All Virtual Private Network (VPN) and Voice over IP (VoIP) services are being considered as grey traffic and are re-routed through the new Web Monitoring System (WMS) implemented by Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA).

Unfortunately, online games fall under that category and PTA is simply blocking source IP that is carrying such traffic leading to high packet loss in online games for the gaming community in Pakistan.

This poor implementation of the Web Monitoring System (WMS) has brought online gaming and eSports to a halt in Pakistan as most popular titles have been rendered unplayable including PlayerUnknown’s Battleground (PUBG), Fortnite, DOTA, Call of Duty, Valorant and several others.

Pakistani gamers have taken to Twitter with hashtag #BanPTA and #BoycottPTA complaining about the issue on the social media platform while sharing screenshots of their high packet loss in online games.

The Pakistani gaming community thinks that the Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) might be doing this intentionally since this is one loop hole after they have been unable to ban online games.

Waqar Zaka took the issue on his Youtube channel and Twitter supporting Esports in Pakistan, Zaka invites PTA officials to come and discuss about packet loss issue at 10 pm tonight.

  1. PTA dont want pakistani gaming Community to go further success thats why they are doing that kind of shit things grow up PTA grow up you are not 6 years old kids atleast dont do that with pakistan gaming community our gaming community has so much potential

  2. The government doesn’t want to deal with the actual issues in the country. They just want to create more. Typical symptoms of a failing system, or maybe I should say a failed system.
