PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds adds map changes and red zone shrinkage

Brendan “PlayerUnknown” Greene does not have kind words for people who dislike the red zone in PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds. In his own words, people who die to the red zone are just not good players, and thus deserve to die in the red zone until they get better, because it’s so obvious that it’s arriving. His statements were unambiguously in favor of the red zone working in the way it did at the time he made those statements.

So, naturally, the most recent patch for the game shrinks the size of the red zone and its duration.

The patch also contains three new areas on the map for players to fight over, along with faster grenade spawns and an assortment of bug fixes. There’s also more testing going on for the game’s Codename: Savage, if you’re curious to see how that new map is coming along. All good things for the future of the game.

I DON’T CARE IF YOU DON’T LIKE THE RED ZONE. GIT GUD!

*quietly makes the red zone smaller to appease people*

I think if you’re gonna be an asshole about people complaining, you should at least stick to your guns. Otherwise you were just an asshole for no reason.

No offense but why would people even complain about the red zone. It’s a dynamic element and last I saw wasn’t a major problem – you just have to bunker down in a house is all and then wait it out.

It does suck because it can mean you get unlucky at times and are stuck in an area until it’s over, but still, from what I remember at least it didn’t linger too long and it was manageable enough. It’s not like it pinned you down and choked you even as the walls started closing in or whatever.

Why would you be stuck in an area? I’ve never bothered to let it stop me from moving through it, and I’ve yet to die.

Then I don’t get how it can be such a complaint for people.

The response to get good to players makes him sound like a dick
