Though we are seeing some huge numbers, not all regions are able to experience FPP games. Here is the official statement of poopieQueen on the FPP Oceania servers
My name is Sammie Kang, Lead Community Manager for PUBG. During the last few weeks, I have been getting message after message from the members of OCE community about FPP. I'm aware that the community wants FPP in OCE servers and I'm deeply sorry that we haven't been able to share any updates or feedback on the topic until now.
I've heard that OCE players are playing FPP on NA or ASIA servers and would like to play on a better environment. I fully understand the frustration.
I've said it on Twitter but the truth is, current player base in OCE is too small for us to add another game mode. We actively monitor data from different servers and game modes on a regular basis. Even if we consider players who are playing on other servers, the number is so small that it could mean (1) increased matchmaking time or (2) a small number of players in every session which can both result in negative player experience. For other regions, the number of active players was much larger which means there will be a number of active sessions filled with enough players throughout the day.
However, we are currently looking into a solution and investigating to see if what could be done. We are still in the middle of the process which is why I have not been able to make any official statement.
OCE community is one of the most passionate communities I've seen so far. I love and respect how everyone has been supportive and enthusiastic about PUBG. We would not want to upset the community but it takes us some time to fully analyze the current situation and see if we can come up with a solution or not.
I'd like to ask for your patience and consideration as our team continues to investigate. I apologize for not addressing the issue earlier. And I'm sorry if this is disappointing but I'm doing my best to find what can be done.
I will provide an update when we have further details about this matter.
