Well, the latest patch from PUBG was released, 17.1, and in it are a smattering of bug fixes and a few small optimizations. We don’t really care about what they added or changed because we’re not a PUBG blog, but I do want to point out a very special note at the bottom of the update directed at fans:
Our goal is to always work to give you a better battle royale experience. To do that, we know that we have to ship more performance improvements and additional bug fixes. We agree with the criticisms of the game that many of you have made recently, including comments that our efforts need to be more effective and that the game still needs more improvement. We greatly appreciate this feedback and we know that all of it comes from a place of support and love for PUBG.
Right now we’re developing new plans to resolve various problems facing PUBG, prioritizing server performance, client-side performance, anti-cheat, and bugs.
…Look, I’ll be the first to admit, one of the biggest flaws PUBG has to wrestle with is the whole matter of performance, considering they still run choppy while Fortnite runs smooth as a buttered baby, but is that really their biggest problem right now? Not their crappy money-making schemes? Or their general lack of content? Or the fact that the whole game just feels like a ripoff at this point?
Well, customers were certainly less than impressed, judging by the comments below the note. I’m not sure if there’s anything that will save PUBG from the tailspin it’s found itself in, but I’m also not sure we’re close to a definitive death blow yet.
But yeah, enjoy the bugfixes, I guess.
