PUBG on Region Locking

A tweet from PLAYERUNKNOWN responds to the campaign to get China region-locked in PLAYERUNKNOWN'S BATTLEGROUNDS to address cheating by reminding everyone they are already working on segregating games by ping (thanks PCGamesN), explaining this should have a similar net effect (see what we did there?). They say: "ICYMI on our dev blog in December, we announced we're working to create a system that will provide a fair gameplay experience for all players. These systems take time to build & implement on the servers without major issues, so please bear with us!" Here is the earlier post he references:

As we announced earlier, we are considering limiting maximum ping depending on user network status in order to establish a smooth gameplay environment and enhance server stability. Before applying the measure to all regions, we will need to fully investigate its feasibility and analyze the outcome, so we will be running a limited test. After implementation, players with a high ping difference from average ping range for the region or players connecting over long distance will not be able to connect to a match. As a result, only players in a certain ping range would be able to enjoy the game together in the same server which leads to a more stable and smooth environment. We will keep you updated on our progress as we continue looking into this method and analyzing our results.
