For a game like PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, having an issue with the matchmaking system is really bad. After all, that is the system that literally brings people together so that can do matches in the game. Recently, a bunch of people were being brought into games, and then randomly dropped out without any rhyme or reason. What’s more, the Ping system was acting glitchy, and didn’t allow players to get into matches at all. During their latest update, the team revealed a fix for the PC version of the game.
“The improved system is intended to automatically send players to the region that provides the lowest ping, but unfortunately an error related to ping calculation occurred and the player’s location wasn’t being identified correctly, resulting in them being placed into matches in a region that didn’t provide the optimal gameplay experience,” PUBG Corp. said. Due to the large number of players affected by this issue, the gameplay experience for many players has been impacted negatively and we sincerely apologize for this.”
So, to fix this, they’ve released a small patch for PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds. However, certain things won’t be fixed by this. You’ll have to wait a little bit for everything to be fully fixed:
“Within the last 24 hours we deployed an initial fix to prevent players from connecting to the wrong local region. The team is actively working to resolve the remaining issues in a fix we expect to deploy next week, which also includes a change to prioritize matching players with teammates who speak the same language, to improve the player experience. Once deployed, the system will now properly prioritize putting players into matches on servers in their local region. In the event of excessive queue times due to a small matchmaking pool, the next closest region will be chosen to ensure players aren’t stuck matchmaking indefinitely.”
We’ll update you when the full patch is released.
