PUBG Corp Testing Ping-Based Matchmaking This Week

'PUBG' news: Battle royale game now experiencing a sharp drop in players despite strong sales

Militia crate, which will allow you to show off your combat outfit, is dropped randomly among the four existing crates, and it is free. This new reporting system comes with some restrictions: You can't use a replay file that is more than a week old, and you can't use the same file to report a player multiple times. In addition, the repeat mode has got additional function - if you "sarapirtti" through him suspicious of a user master record will Bud minute demonstration showing the fragment when you view you sent a complaint. You're now much less likely to be stuck with a premium crate you have to pay to open if you'd like to avoid spending real money on the game.

In the meantime, a new update is arriving on PC test servers ahead of a full launch.

In an announcement today, PUBG Corp revealed that a development roadmap, which community manager Sammie Kang promised in a tweet last week, will be revealed next month. This new content will include a new map coming in March, but no further details have been mentioned. Major features are now in the works, including a new map.

Trump denies he ever denied Russian meddling (but it's undeniable)

Congress rejuvenates, 'Arvinder Singh Lovely' makes a comeback
Former Youth Congress chief, Amit Malik, who joined the BJP with Lovely, may also come back, the senior leader said. Dikshit, who had expressed pain at Lovely's moving to BJP previous year , welcomed his return.

Among many features, one of the major that is being focused on by the developers is the Ping-based Matchmaking system. However, the latest news on that front did mention that most cheaters that have been banned are from China. "We will continue to put our best effort to improve and maintain the fair play environment, optimize the game and provide you with new content".

Unfortunately this inclusion had to be delayed so the team could focus on cheat-prevention, but it's good to know that Bluehole Inc. are addressing this massive issue. This should split the match pool for the game rather than outright restricting connections based exclusively on ping.

The Steam update, while mostly apologising for the silence, has also released some patch notes revealing that Ping would now be a priority when matchmaking. Preparations are underway to test this method in some regions, with first trials planned to start this week.
