PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds gained its popularity at a blinding speed and naturally it became a hacker sponge. The hacker problem has been rampant for months now and lately they are getting themselves new tools such as teleportation.
Things are getting out of hand for PUBG with the most recent hacking issue being a teleportation-wallhack-aimbot combo. Reddit user TheWiseOne213 postedthis latest top of the line product in hacking industry.
It appears Mr or Mrs s66nu couldn't be satisfied with the regular speed hacks, and opted out to seek training from the legendary Saiyan - Son Goku. Now this selfless hero is bringing their newfound Instant Transmission ability to teach its ways to the heathen PUBG community. You can see this modern day messiah in action right now.
This problem is likely the main issue that drove people away from PUBG, and eventually resulted in the game recently shedding players for the first time since its release. As if rampant hackers weren't bad enough, PUBG corp is still refusing to region lock China which results in players having ridiculous lag when playing on North American or European servers, ruining the experience for both - the laggers and the domestic players that can't shoot them due to rubber banding.
Player outrage is growing by the day which became abundantly clear once Steam also started issuing warnings to anyone visiting the PUBG Steam store. It shows the spike of overwhelmingly negative reviews posted by players in recent days, the biggest one being on 25 and 26 January 2018.
Players are calling for China region block. Negative reviews are no longer just random fits of range but rather coherent criticism by players who love the game but can no longer enjoy it due to it's massive issues, and some are even asking why a hacker would do something like this.
Disgruntled players on Steam no longer see this as cheating in the lines of getting an advantage to win and still have a feeling of actually playing the game, this is literally griefing for the sake of ruining someone else's experience even at the cost of ruining their own as well.
Battle Royale is a still highly appealing genre but no other game really fills the niche of realistic art style in the genre and along with invested time and money, this may be one of the reasons why the players are still clinging to the game.
Fortnite has recently seen spikes in player charts and the leading reasons are devs actually supporting gameplay quality and not just its money sinks as well as the likely PUBG downfall that may not yet be obvious but should the company keep disregarding players' criticism, it will become plain as day and more importantly - inevitable.
