i just laid out for you how wait times won't be an issue. what the f*** is your problem?

Yes because you're a prophet and can see into the future.


If region locking China didn't kill LoL, Dota or Overwatch, why would it kill PUBG?

Those games aren't nearly as popular as PUBG right now though.

thanks, you just reaffirmed his point.

its simple numbers, but if you want to go ahead and deny that then that's fine, continue spending your friday worrying about something that won't happen for zero reason other than to not admit you were wrong on a video game message board

I'm not worried, it's just annoying.

If a game requires Chinese players to fill slots, it's a s***ty game.


THIS SO MUCH

Back when we played World of Warcraft with SIX million people for the entire world, it was SERVER LOCKED. What this means is that our PVP and PVE was limited to just a SINGLE server, there was no crossrealm when I started playing. Never did I have an issue getting into pvp. Never did I have an issue finding a raid or party for dungeons. Never did I have any issues with chinese hackers or hackers in general. When crossrealm happened area51 became known for in-game exploits but it was AMERICAN and by the next patch it was fixed. In fact a good game patches their problems instead of coming up with excuses like player base sizes. If a game that was region locked/server locked became one of the best selling subscriptions of all time, PUBG can absolutely do the same considering it's "the best selling" or whatever hype it is.

If I have to play with people in China and Russia then the game is bad or low population. Their ping is about 200-300 more then mine and makes for a laggy game even if my ping is 20-30. Region lock my games please, so I can understand the language my team is playing and play with players with good ping.

It's pulling 3m with Chinese players. Chinese players are not counted on Steam stats for Dota, they have their own client.

Guess western PUBG is struggling to keep up with a 10 year old game lol


This is such a stupid argument. You are comparing a F2P game that is ran on potatoes all over the world to a game that has sold 20+ million copies at 30 bucks a pop.

Yes, they should region lock them. Aside from the hacking problems, the pings are going to be way higher too.

Plus, other games do it, so why does PUBG have to be different?

Who cares it looks good and it's selling a s*** load of copies. It's on its way to becoming the #1 best selling PC game of all time, if it's not there already.


Minecraft and Skyrim say hello.

Why not just improve the cheat detection like Blizzard does.


Didn't Blizzard region-lock a few of their games' Chinese releases?

So the #1 best selling PC game can't afford to region lock China when every other game can. Right.

PUBG is not "every other game". It's the most popular game right now.


Sounds like you're saying that PB would no longer be "the most popular game right now" without the Chinese component.

I mean my interest in the game begins and ends with wondering why people us "PUBG" for an accronym when the name is PLAYERUNKNOWN'S BATTLEGROUNDS with no deviation in capitalization to warrant adding in extra letters, and as such I'm not against the game in any fashion.

I just think it's odd that folks would be so vehemently against the idea of splitting up player populations by moral standards and technical aspects so that people with a given set of values and qualities of internet connection can play with other people with people who have similar values and qualities of internet connection.

Then again I have to also wonder why people keep going on about "Well the game sold this many copies and has this many Chinese players" as if Chinese players:buyers was a 1:1 ratio when all throughout World of Warcraft's population boom era people took pains to note that China's gaming environment skewed the metrics thanks to things like pay-as-you-play gaming. The way most comments read back then read sounded I it makes me wonder whether or not there's more like 50 or more Chinese players for every copy sold and the people buying the copies are just rotating gamers through in-store rented PCs to play the game.

The elephant in the room regarding this "Region Lock China" brigade is that the vast majority of players don't use random-matchmaking in PUBG.

People typically either play Solos, group up with IRL / gaming friends, or use the Official Discord (Probably 50K+ in that server by now) to find people to play with. This leaves a very very small amount of players left that actually DO use random-matchmaking and get paired up with Chinese players.
