When Bluehole released the latest update for PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds, the new features and additions were pretty much praised across the board. Unfortunately, it came with some unforeseen consequences in the form of terrible server times. These ranged from being timed out while waiting, the inability to connect, and severe lag in gameplay that made for a terrible time for players. Some Twitch streamers even showed off how they had to lead their shots by several feet to hit people relatively close. Last night, PUBG's Twitter feed posted an update:
We've pushed an hotfix to the servers that should fix the issues seen since the update yesterday. Thank you for your patience!

Of course, people quickly took to complaining that the hotfix didn't work for them and that they were still having issues, but for the majority of PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds players, the update seems to have taken effect and fixed many of the issues players were having. Many players are pointing to the inclusion of the microtransaction system as the root cause of the problem, claiming that Bluehole didn't test it properly before launching the game. Whatever the cause may be, it seems to have been repaired, but it will probably make players cautious in the future for more updates.
