PUBG Under Attack
The once king, PUBG, is under attack by unhappy players recently after the company introduced a paid “event pass.” While other games rise in the ranks, notably Fortnite, do you think this is a good idea for PUBG’s business model?

If you are making money on Twitch, Youtube, or anything else that depends on the popularity or player base of a game, you should definitely be paying attention to developments like this. The longevity of a game’s popularity can have a direct effect on your income!
It seems to me that PUBG noticed the success of their competitor’s (Fortnite) Battle Pass, and they are now trying to cash in on a similar concept. However, their dreams of cashing in seem to be backfiring for the moment. Gamers all over the internet are raging about this move. PUBG’s steam page has been flooded with negative reviews and comments, and it seems the game is bleeding players by the second. Do you think PUBG is strong enough to stand the storm?
Players main gripe with this move probably stems from the fact that Fortnite is a free-to-play title, while PUBG is not. Essentially, PUBG players are having to pay to play the game twice, with many calling the new event pass ‘mandatory.’
