The blue circle of Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds is a mysterious god. We can’t predict its whims, solely hope that it favours us – then we thank it for its benevolence. Inside the circle is life, exterior is demise. Some say the circle offers the sport construction by forcing us nearer collectively, however I don’t suppose the circle cares and even is aware of we’re there. The-closing wall of electrodeath’s whims and motives will quickly change once more, because the builders at the moment are testing modifications to its velocity and actions.
The devs are additionally gabbing about cheats, saying they’re making ready to wipe out one other 100,000 cheaters they’ve discovered – and warning that should you’re fuming pondering you’ve noticed a cheater in a replay, it’d simply be a bug.
First, our god. PUBG Corp have launched a brand new patch on the take a look at server, altering the velocity, relaxation breaks, and injury of the blue zone at occasions. Ol’ Bluey being what drives gamers onwards (nicely, apart from bloodlust and a pack rat mentality), it ought to change the tempo of rounds.
“Over the course of the Early Access period, we received a lot of feedback from you that the pacing and distribution of combat encounters in a match could be more even and less chaotic,” the devs stated in last night’s post. They say they examined just a few concepts internally however couldn’t roll them out as a result of they had been busy with others issues. Well, now these modifications are dwell on the general public take a look at server:
- Slightly decreased the ready time of the blue zones in mid-to-late part of a match
- Slightly decreased the shrinking velocity of the blue zones in mid-to-late part (In this part, blue zones will now transfer at a slower velocity and the journey time of blue zones has barely elevated attributable to this transformation)
- Slightly elevated the injury per second of the final blue zone
So circles will spend much less time standing nonetheless within the mid-to-late recreation however transfer extra slowly, then proper on the finish they’ll actually burn you should you get caught within the blue.
That’s the present plan. They say they’ll tweak this following suggestions and information from the take a look at server, and will probably be testing additional afterwards. If you wish to strive the modifications your self, obtain the separate consumer labelled ‘Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds (Test Server)’ in your Steam library.
I hope this achieves the aim of night out rounds. At the second, half the gamers appear to die within the opening minutes then the sport stalls at 40-ish gamers alive for ages.
As for cheaters, they are saying they’ve “performed a thorough gameplay data review of 10 million players and completed analysis of tens of millions of data logs,” which has turned up a brand new sample determine cheaters. 100,000 folks will probably be completely banned in a single fell swoop. See you in heck, jerks.
However! If you’ve watched a replay and been suspicious of how somebody seems to fireside their gun with none recoil, remember that could be all the way down to a bug quite than a recoil hack. They say:
“We have identified an issue in our deathcam, replay and observing systems which is related to showing other players as if they are using cheats. When you watch the gameplay video of another player in the systems, it looks like there is no recoil even for a player who is not using a cheat. Please note that it is caused by a bug in the systems. We apologize for the inconvenience this has caused in reporting cheaters and the confusion the bug has created for many of you. We are going to fix this bug as soon as possible.”
Or perhaps they may even have been dishonest. As lengthy as this bug stands, it’s all a bit complicated.
