Too many customers is a rather rare problem, but this is exactly what "suffers" from PLAYERUNKNOWN'S BATTLEGROUNDS. The popular Battle Royale Shooter seems to set new player records every week and the developers hardly keep up with the online server. In the last few weeks, the focus has been on Bluehole clearly on ensuring stability for all players.
This category also includes the postponement of the leaderboard reset announced today. Actually should be on October 11th The next season of rated games will begin, but the developers are now planning to optimize the backend first. Backend here means improving the server and network structure so that the servers can withstand the onslaught.
PLAYERUNKNOWN'S BATTLEGROUNDS - New season on October 17th
Of course you can still play, just no results are recorded for the leaderboards. The new plan is for the season on October 17th at 4 a.m. European time tomorrow.
Below you will find the message from the PLAYERUNKNOWN'S BATTLEGROUNDS developers on the topic:
We would like to start off with an apology to all users who have been waiting for the leaderboard reset.
We were planning on starting a new season on October 11th at 11AM KST / 4AM CEST / October 10th at 7PM PDT as mentioned in a previous announcement. However, our concurrent users have been increasing rapidly, and we are genuinely concerned that we may not be able to provide you with a comfortable and seamless gaming experience by starting the new season immediately. In order to deliver a more reliable service, we would like to make some back end improvements.
