SteelSeries and PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds Announce Exclusive Partnership

Today, SteelSeries is proud to announce its official partnership with leading battle royale game, PLAYERUNKNOWN'S BATTLEGROUNDS (PUBG). With the announcement of the partnership, SteelSeries is announcing a PUBG QcK+ mousepad, with additional PUBG-branded peripherals and accessories coming later this summer. Today, SteelSeries and PUBG will also kick off the one-year Anniversary Celebration with a global campaign, giving away tons of SteelSeries gear as well as PUBG swag, codes and more.

"This partnership signals the coming of incredible products, meaningful integrations along with creative activities among the PUBG influencer and streamer communities," said SteelSeries CEO, Ehtisham Rabbani. "Together our brands are creating an opportunity for the battle royal community to connect their PUBG obsession with premium gear that is both innovative and designed for competitive esports."
"SteelSeries was the peripherals brand we considered partnering with, because of the tremendous reputation the brand has built over the last two decades," said Shane Rho, Senior Marketing Manager, EMEA of PUBG Corporation. "This partnership provides our community with the ability to show off their PUBG pride while using the best peripherals in the industry."

Today, the first in a series of peripherals will be available, the QcK+ PUBG Edition Mousepad for $19.99 / €24.99. Featuring the leading PUBG character image in bold and vibrant colorings, the QcK+ is a 450x400x4mm oversized mousepad with a nearly frictionless surface and non-slip rubber base. Composed of high-quality cloth, this supersized mousepad is especially ideal for people using a low sensitivity or high resolution.

And here I am, with a main preference for SteelSeries due to their no-nonsense looks.

All that money and they still can't improve their servers. Sad day mates. I enjoy the game, but it is a buggy and laggy mess, even with my fiber optic 2ms internet connection. :/ Not sure why people love it so much, I mean I get it, but its just a bad business model to not invest in better servers when you have the best selling game in a long long time.

You ask why people love it..... but you said previously "you enjoy the game..." :kookoo:


Anyways, to answer your question, they post stuff in the steam community, it seems they are constantly trying to catch up with the demand but obviously, continue to fail at that. :banghead:

I do enjoy the game, it still needs more optimization though. It could be much better if they just hired a slightly bigger team to help them out quicker. That post you linked is from October, and its still a buggy laggy mess... yet they had time to partner with steelseries, make a mobile game, and advertise like crazy... maybe they should have spent some of those enormous profits to increase their team size and optimize the PC version first.

Honestly those are the big red flags that I already spotted early on. This game exploded out of early access and after that they just monetized it above all other things. Its extremely likely this will devolve into nothing more than a cash grab.

I agree, needs more optimization. I mentioned OLD POST before the link... But seems to be relevant as they still have server issues. :mad:

dont know if you have played lately but the last big update that just rolled has GREATLY improved the game, the game has been stability and has much improved in many ways. at least that is the way i felt after the 4-5 matches I played last night.

Thanks, I haven't had a working PC in over two weeks, so I was not aware. Good to know.

I sent my gaming laptop in to get liquid metal and extra copper / high quality thermal pads on it. :D

Good man... I covered all my procs with liquid metal... so worth the "hassle"

Jump on when you have a chance. I think you will find it to be a great progression if you haven't played in a while. New map and other items are coming soon as well, honestly I am sick of the desert map
