In areas with larger participant counts, together with Europe and North America, FPP, or first-person perspective servers have been added at the start of August. But whereas gamers on the OCE servers continued to request the mode, which exists alongside the usual third-person sport mode, their appeals gave the impression to be falling on deaf ears.
That is, till immediately, when a submit on the OCE PUBG Discord sever by the sport’s lead neighborhood supervisor, Sammie Kang, mentioned that whereas the workforce have been “currently looking into a solution,” there weren’t sufficient gamers to allow them to add FPP.
Kang says “I’ve said it on Twitter but the truth is, current player base in OCE is too small for us to add another game mode.” This isn’t a choice the workforce have made evenly, as Kang says that “we actively monitor data from different servers and game modes on a regular basis.”
The fear stays, nevertheless, that including a second sport mode would break up the participant base. That would both drive the matchmaking occasions up, or decrease the variety of gamers in every sport. Kang says that each of these outcomes might “result in negative player experience,” which is clearly one thing she’s eager to keep away from.
