Game Update: May 16
Ping restriction updates, bug fixes, and more!
All H1Z1 PC servers will be offline starting at 4PM PT on Wednesday, May 16 for an estimated 2 hour downtime to bring you updates on ping restrictions and more. Read on below for all the details:
In order to maintain a fair and consistent gameplay experience in our competitive modes, connection quality restrictions now apply to all ranked matches. Players with a connection quality that fails to meet ping threshold requirements will be unable to join ranked matches (Solos, Duos, and Fives), even if they are able to connect to that region. For reference, ping requirements are 150ms for North America, South America, and Europe, and 200ms for Asia/Pacific and Australia.
All players can still join Arcade and Hosted Games, as well as Combat Training.
Quality of Life Changes & Bug Fixes
- Pressing the "Escape" key now cancels channeled abilities (e.g. using a first aid kit).
- Report Player functionality is now available on the match end screens.
- Map borders no longer appear incorrectly in some resolutions.
- Exit button now always appears correctly in the UI when spectating a teammate as the game ends.
