In the last patch of PLAYERUNKNOWN'S BATTLEGROUNDS, the developers announced BP rewards to compensate for a bug in the distribution. The fans, on the other hand, have very different problems at heart and challenge you Region lockto get rid of cheaters.
PLAYERUNKNOWN'S BATTLEGROUNDS - Players have had enough of cheaters
As an extremely high proportion of cheaters & hackers China comes, the players request a region lock in order to have better conditions on the western server. After that, Chinese players could only play on Chinese servers. In addition to using hacks, the latency from China to the servers in the EU or USA is also a problem. It's no fun when 20-30 players run around with 400ms or more latency in a match who are "warping" through the area and cannot be caught. So the complaints of the players.
In a first statement in December, Brendan "PLAYERUNKNOWN" Greene said that it would not be a good idea to ban an entire nation for a few cheaters. Even if many of the cheaters are Chinese, not all Chinese are cheaters.
Instead, the developers work like in one Blog about the release of the 1.0 PC version announced on a "ping lock". This would ensure that only players with equivalent pings, i.e. latencies to the server, would meet in matches.
Then a region lock would be more or less superfluous. Of course, the development, testing and implementation of such a system takes a long time and the PLAYERUNKNOWN'S BATTLEGROUNDS team asks for patience.
ICYMI on our dev blog in December, we announced we're working to create a system that will provide a fair gameplay experience for all players. These systems take time to build & implement on the servers without major issues, so please bear with us!https://t.co/oxmuka5OZt pic.twitter.com/yIgjxcEUrD
