Security Breach Results In Users Locking Out Of Their Epic Games Accounts

What is PUBG Mobile and why is everyone talking about PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds?

The update introduced the weapon skin system, complete with a new dedicated menu to manage all of them.

There are problems with server region locks, because Battlegrounds has different game modes that are region specific.

In related news, it turns out that despite recent comments made by Brendan "PlayerUnknown" Greene to the contrary, PUBG Corp will soon be trialling region-locked servers.

PUBG Corporation's quest for network stability actually began by implementing a ping-based matchmaking system.

Netanyahu says policy to impede enemies from nuclear weapons
Bergman agrees there are similarities between what happened then and Iran's attempts today to embed its forces in Syria. Concerns over Iran's nuclear and military ambitions have long dominated Netanyahu's rhetoric on the worldwide stage.

The work-in-progress preview had been shown during Greene's March 23 talk at the Game Developers Conference, charting his progression from a developer of community modifications to the creative director at South Korean "PUBG" studio Bluehole Inc. "Through this new approach we are aiming to provide a better gameplay experience as it will improve network issues and help with linguistic barriers". "These servers will be rendered invisible to players residing in other regions".

The function is now being tested on the game's test server for Korean and Japanese players only. If the PUBG team decides that this is the route to take after research and analysis, it'll be rolled out on a global scale. Unsurprisingly you can only get skins in crates, either the Triumph or the Raider crates (the latter being free, and the former being, you guessed it, unlocked with a key you have to buy).

If the test is a success the changes are expected to make their way to live servers later this month.
