PUBG Player stats are dropping.
In this other thread, @Dracas-0001 pulls out some stats about PUBG. The tl;dr of that post is that PUBG appears to be losing players at a pretty quick rate.
Do you think this is impacting queue times?
On more than one occasion I join a game only to never make it out of the holding area - it gets to about 70-80 players (slowly) then eventually starts to drop again as people leave and re-queue.
There must be a point where the number of active players gets low enough that you spend longer queueing for a full game than you do actually playing. Especially of you are one of the 30-40% that like to hot-drop and get RNG'd out of the game on the first 2 mins.
Will this effect be worse for Maverick's target of 400 player games?
Until we se how SpatialOS works, we can't really be sure about how the game will behave in a 400 player enviorment.
