PUBG Survivor Pass currency deprecation and pyjamas make fans livid

PUBG Survivor Pass introduced pyjama party skins and a change to currency earning that meant you will have to pay for subsequent passes. Both of them only served to cause a backlash.

Battle pass system in video games is designed to be inherently grindy and keep the players engaged, without much opportunity to leave for another title. It is for this reason that these passes often feature premium currency as rewards. Enough of it, in fact, to let players purchase the next pass without spending more real-life money.

Some games, however, are double-dipping and forcing players to pay to grind. PUBG joined that club with update 11.2. Needless to say, the players are not happy about the situation at all but the fact that they are being forced to pay more is only fortified by what looks like lacklustre rewards.

Key among them is the pyjama party appearance set, which you can see above. Running around a circle filled with people trying to kill you, one would think you would pick something up that either camouflages the character or doesn't look too ridiculous. 

Well, those who go against those points should have a field day with the pyjamas but that doesn't seem to be the general sentiment of the PUBG community.

They are not thrilled about the rewards or the fact they can't earn enough for the next pass but all of this would be a bit better if not for the undocumented drive-by nerfs.
