They need to do this at 3 or 4 am to the North American servers for NORTH FREAKING AMERICA. Why do they do this during peak hours? 

 

What is wrong with you?  This is the absolute best time to do it, as the FEWEST NUMBER OF PLAYERS ARE AFFECTED.

 

It's not China's fault that you didn't buy enough copies.

 

Pony up, dude.

BTW, ALL STUDIOS DO THIS

 

All studios post server maintenance times on their website, in-game and on twitter? Kind of funny, pubg shows "Server busy" instead of that. Also kind of awesome to have servers down in primetime less than a week after steam sale. Lot of newer players don't need any server maintenance notice. They know exactly what is going on.

 

It literally takes one person to post this. It literally takes one person 10 minutes to post this, 5 if they don't use spellcheck.

Hmmm it's Thursday morning in Korea.

Hmmm aren't patch days on Thursdays?

Hmmm Didn't they just announce a new patch?

Hmmm I wonder if the patch will be on a thursday after they announce the patch on a Tuesday?

Hmmmmmmmmmmmmm

Actually I disagree.  The client could easily pull some banner from a messaging system and update the main screen when trying to connect.  No connection could cause people to waste time troubleshooting and other things until they google pubg forums and finally figure it out here.  

 

Only a few thousand people have visited these forums so there's a lot who don't know.

For real though. Most people have enough sense to patch during down time, like early in the morning/late at night not between 6-9 in the 4 Timezones the server is spread across. 

 

prime time where you are you mean...….

what i dont understand, if anyone can shed light, is why they cant update different areas at different times to suit each area?

 

The steam platform doesn't support rolling updates. As such, all clients are updated at the same time irrespective of region.
