Playerunknown and his team at bluehole are currently looking into changing how the bluezone works, This is going to be absolutely game changing as the team looks at amending combat in the game with this being the first focus in balancing.
The changes to the blue zone currently in testing confirmed by PUBG are:
- Slightly decreased waiting time of the blue zones in mid-to-late phase of a match
- Slightly decreased shrinking speed of the blue zones in mid-to-late phase (In this phase, blue zones will now move at a slower speed and the travel time of blue zones has slightly increased due to this change)
- Slightly increased damage per second of the last blue zone
The Official post states: “Our development team has plans to enhance the combat experience in a match. The first plan is about rebalancing the blue zone” it goes on to say “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”
“We performed a series of internal tests to find ways to address this issue. However, we were not able to take any action until now as other fundamental systems had to be developed and fixed first. Please note that we are still experimenting with the mechanics and we would like to hear your feedback”
We understand this is currently on the test servers so go give it ago and see what you think! We think this is a great welcomed change to PUBG and especially in making people get in that end circle a lot more quicker!
