PUBG Mobile matchmaking changes target emulator users

pubg mobile

PUBG Corp has changed PUBG Mobile’s matchmaking to prevent players taking advantage of emulators. The changes were announced in a tweet posted earlier today.

Savage is the PUBG map that Miramar should have been.

PUBG Corp say that “to ensure fair gameplay, players on emulators will only be matched with one another and not with players on mobile devices.” While PUBG mobile seems to be a pretty good mobile port of the game, some players are taking advantage of emulators to allow them to play the game on the PC. That allows them to use mouse and keyboard controls, which is a pretty useful boon when compared to touch controls.

The changes mean that if you’re playing on an emulator, you’ll now only be matched with other emulator users, which sort of robs you of the advantage. It’s still a decent way to circumvent the PC version of PUBG’s price tag, so all is not entirely lost. If you’re playing in squads or duos, if even one of you is using an emulator, you’ll be matched with groups doing the same, while all-mobile teams will now only play one another.

Mouse and keyboard players have been dominating PUBG Mobile since just a few days after launch, which equates to a pretty bad time for those playing the game as God PlayerUnknown intended. Hopefully, these changes will sort that out, but as there's no date in the above tweet, it's not entirely clear when they'll come into play.

Man, some people .. Jesus. I mean I guess I shouldn't be surprised, but damn. People claim to enjoy "competitive gaming", but they're actually afraid to legitimately compete. Fucking wankers.

I just can't afford a gaming setup capable of running the PC PuBG

I use my phone with OTG attachments so I think I still don't come under this category

I dont see why this emulator thing is such a big deal. All current emulators have a low fps at the moment and can easily be defeated by any skilled player on an updated os. Ive played both and using a phone/tablet is so much easier. The only people that are complaining are those who are crap at the mobile controls and dont want to put in the time to get good.

What advantage? I died like 3 times till i figured how to play and you got to stop to press shift alone to run and if you want to pick something you need to exit the shooting mode (i don't know what they call it ) by pressing v and then press v again to enter the shooting mode. And not all people mean and want to take advantage I play it with my boyfriend he has a good mobile phone but the game lags as hell on my htc desire 816 and i can't afford a new mobile one. and after the update of miramor i started to die in the first 2 minutes of almost each match. so i had to use the emulator and i used it for the first time yesterday but it's really sad to not being able to play with my boyfriend anymore :(
