In games involving online matchmaking, queuing in servers is a major hassle for both, the players and the brand of game hosting it. Recently PubG (Players Unknown Battleground) released their latest update on the PC, for its users. The update, dubbed as PC Update 22, contained new algorithms for matchmaking and also new ways of player ranking.
In the new update, the main focus was on two major things, Ranking and Region assignment. The problem arose with the region assignment and the developers have received multiple complains with players all over. The new algorithm was supposed to reduce waiting times in the lobbies and allow for a greater play time to waiting ratio. This, however, did not pan as it was supposed to. Although many people, like those in Russia and other countries like the Oceanic ones, were grateful for the update that it made wonders for them for the waiting times but other people, especially those in Asia, around China and Korea complained greatly. This is because Chinese players have been known for employing cheating methods and this, for obvious reasons, ruins the whole essence of the matches.
PubG developers have heard these complains and have made a public announcement on all social media platforms claiming that they would address these problems and these would be solved in an upcoming patch that is being worked on at the moment.
