Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds has been experiencing lots of server connection issues these days. Developers at Bluehole weigh in on the PUBG Server connection issues and how they will fix them.
Developers Address PUBG Server Connection Issues, Sends Apologies
Players have recently been complaining about connection issues while playing Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds. The PUBG development team addressed this issue last October 3 on their website, which you can read here. Since Battlegrounds is an early access game, it has its own share of problems. Primarily, Battlegrounds has a lot of optimization issues, to the point that even computers with the latest hardware are unable to render it in the best quality possible. Not only that, the PUBG server status has been shaky these days (to say the least).
Personally, I encountered a bunch of problems playing Battlegrounds. If you’ve read A Noob Plays PUBG, my own humble series, I won’t go a day without playing a match with virtually unrendered buildings. Sometimes, the game disconnects me, or hangs before the game begins.
We can be sure, however, that the Development team is ironing this out. The game is still immensely popular among people, and I’m sure the Devs won’t fail to disappoint them. For now, they have addressed the connection, login, and server crash issues facing the players.
Summary of the Update
- The Development team first apologizes for the PUBG server status.
- One of the main causes for the PUBG server connection issues is the number of concurrent players. The devs have been upgrading the service architecture due to the rise of concurrent player numbers. When too many people played the game, the server experienced a lot of problems. It was originally designed for 1 million concurrent users, but as the game became popular, the server started to break down.
- The team admits that it has been difficult to manage the servers when concurrent users reach their peak times. They plan to prepare their servers in advance to handle a much larger number of concurrent players. The PUBG server connection issues come from the servers having a hard time handling too many concurrent players.
- The team will address the increasaed number of server crashes in Asia. Asia peaked in terms of concurrent players, and to address this problem, another cloud service was added. Devs did not test it sufficiently, and the servers overloaded. However, they are currently investigating the matter to fix it in the future. This is another reason why the PUBG server connection issues persisted.
- They have also been continuously working on optimization and doing their best in order to make gradual improvements on the PUBG server status.
