‘Repair PUBG’ marketing campaign ends with a whimper and a promise of extra fixes
Just a few months again, PUBG Corp introduced a bug repair marketing campaign referred to as “Repair PUBG.” The purpose was to establish issues with the as soon as fashionable PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds and repair them in a well timed method. If you happen to’ve performed PUBG just lately, you will know first hand that the marketing campaign hasn’t carried out effectively. There are nonetheless points with desync and stability and whereas the sport is in a significantly better place than final yr, it’s nonetheless a far cry from what you’d name a completed product.
Oddly sufficient, the “Repair PUBG” marketing campaign is wrapping up now due to “a number of new stability points that arose other than FIX PUBG.'” You possibly can’t make these things up. An initiative to enhance a sport has resulted in model new points for the sport. Simply let that data sink in.
Nonetheless, not every little thing is horrible. PUBG Corp has outlined numerous the tweaks which have come to PUBG since August and the outcomes do present enchancment. Common framerates are larger than months in the past, server response time has been lowered and matchmaking has been hastened, getting gamers into video games faster.
Sadly, anti-cheat strategies aren’t actually touched upon. The Steam group publish largely reiterates that hackers have been arrested and that preventing this battle goes to be unending. Extra data shall be coming sooner or later, however cheaters, griefers and hackers are nonetheless PUBG’s greatest downside and it sucks to not have any concrete data on what is going on.
The publish ends with a promise from PUBG’s government producer Taeseok Jang: “Construct stability and high quality are actually our most essential worth, and upon that base, we are going to construct new Battle Royale gameplay and new content material…Whereas we can’t say how lengthy this may take, we promise you that we are going to give our greatest efforts to succeed in this stage as shortly as potential.” For lots of gamers, that is not going to be sufficient. I truthfully cannot blame them.
