PUBG Tried To Implement Fortnite-Like Event Mode But Had To Cancel It

PUBG is trying so, so hard to fix itself but it’s not going as well as people hoped…

The latest issue the game is facing is a problem with its Event Mode, which PUBG has announced as unplayable due to a “critical error.”

Posting on Twitter, the PUBG Help page wrote: “PC Players: Unfortunately, this week’s Event Mode has been cancelled due to a critical error.

“We apologize for any frustration or disappointment this has caused. Event Mode: Platoon will not be returning next week, but will return at a later date.”

The ‘Platoon’ mode in question was designed as a 50 v 50 mode similar to what Fortnite sometimes offers, with teams dividing into five squads of 10 people each, and fans are now losing their patience with PUBG.

The issue with the new mode comes just two days after compensation was offered to players following the game’s last bug.

The game’s three-hour scheduled maintenance didn’t go to plan when the newly-reinstated live servers then went on to uninstall a few times, causing issues with connectivity and matchmatching. Some players also saw a “Network Lag Detected” error.

As an apology gift for the inconvenience, PUBG Corp will be giving out freebies for PC players of the game.

You can claim yourself a Black Beanie With Headphones item, along with 20,000 Battle Points from right now until 5pm PDT on 23rd October, which means you’ve got nearly a week to claim yours.

Speaking on the issues, the official PUBG Help page tweeted: “We sincerely apologize for the negative experience caused by our recent server connectivity and matchmaking related issues.

“As compensation, we will be gifting all PC players the Black Beanie with Headphones item along with 20,000 BP. Log in to PUBG by 5pm PDT on Oct 23 to claim.”

Players aren’t thrilled with the offer of freebies though, with lots of users claiming PUBG is “taking the easy way out,” and branded the free items as “worthless.”
