PUBG had a wild ride in Season 7, from the Vikendi map rework, over the bots and ranked later on to the announcement of new esports matches. We bundled the update recap with a Dinoland merch giveaway, valid for EU citizens.
PUBG's Season 7 has roughly one month left but it has already brought many changes that shook up both the community and the game. Some were great, like the massive rework of Vikendi but some were not that well-received, such as the addition of bots.
Season 7 kicked off rather successfully for the game as it saw major growth in player count for the first time in four months. The reworked Vikendi came along with the Dinoland overhaul as well as the train lines that provided new ways to outplay the opponents. Players thought the game would finally take off and once again be among the stars, duking it out with Fortnite for the biggest battle royale around.
Then came patch 7.2. It was meant to make PUBG even better when it introduced Ranked mode that would allow players to measure up against their peers and quantify their growth. Despite the bots not being allowed in Ranked , a considerable portion of the player base still wanted to enjoy the regular modes with Red Zones without the bot action.
Update 7.3 , which is meant to go live on June 17, is once again bringing the good news. Esports enthusiast will get Esports tab, vehicles will become more durable and PCS is approaching. The tournament will feature a prize pool of $200,000 and see 16 teams scrapping for the biggest chunk. With it, PUBG Corporation is hoping to reverse some of the player losses since 7.2.
