the bubble burst and millions jump to fortnite or any BR free to play.

Constant performance issues, bugs, hackers, slow rate of additions/improvements, lack of limited time events, huge map that results in useless running with nothing happening (best part is when after 10 mins of running from the gas a sniper headshots you from half a click away....

All that plus the recent Epic 100million price pool announcement and boom people are leaving PUGB for Fortnite. Its not nuclear physics.

They need to fix performance, pump out more content (a lot faster) and do events. Or not, a ton BR games are coming and some of them are from the big league (Activision's COD and perhaps EA's Battlefield, even RDR2 might have a BR mode from the looks of it).

Adapt or die.

I think the biggest issue is the hackers. No one wants to play a game when it is impossible to win. Pubg is infested with those scumbags

I agree my friend. Instead of wasting resources in a lawsuit they should use them in updating/improving their game.

Who wants to continue playing a buggy, glitchy, cheater filled game?

I can the genre getting over saturated in the next 12 or so months, if that's the case, PUBG will probably just fall out of relevance, especially if those games are done well enough (and most likely will be).

PUBG spent too long making more content. Game is still pretty light on content, despite the addictive and fun nature of the game. But it gets boring playing the same content over and over without much variety.

Other than that, it's just natural attrition as other games come around. Not all games are going to hold all their players indefinitely, even the popular ones, and I think a lot of people who played for a while were also just seeing what all the hype was about, and many probably moved onto Fortnite, and others will move onto the next thing when it comes out. But I think Epic will be better about making new content to keep people invested in it.

Bluehole should be happy they could cash in as much as they did. Maybe now, instead of talking about how others are copying them, they can focus on using that money to make more content to remain competitive.

Epic updates fortnite every week they do a fantastic job, and the building keeps things interesting. But I can also see how building can turn people off.

Tired of dealing with poor design, crappy servers, hackers, bugs galore and running across the map for 25 min only to die because you have to sprint into circle just to get picked off by some guy with a kar98.

This was my complaint from the beginning.. at least in part. I never liked the idea that most of the time you get gunned down by some dude who is camping someplace with a sniper rifle you never even get to see.

At least in Fortnite you almost always at least have some sort of gun battle before you die.

It is a survival game though.

"It is a survival game though."

But the odds are heavily stacked against players coming across the map. There are always some players that feel the game screwed them regardless of the situation. But most people know when something is fair even when they lose. Suddenly it isn't luck, or skill but rather who got there first. Remember, its a survival game not a racing title.

They went over to a game that surpassed PUBG in every way.

Still seeing people on Steam but things are... quieter.
