Playerunknown's Battlegrounds has surpassed DOTA 2's concurrent player record

 
PUBG has quickly become one of Steam's most popular releases, becoming Steam's most played game in terms of concurrent player count earlier this month. 
 
Player Unknown's Battlegrounds has now surpassed DOTA 2's peak player count of 1.29 million players, surpassing 1.3 million concurrent players over the past weekend. Steam currently lists this player count as 1,338,091 players, which is almost as high as the peak player counts of both Counter-Strike: Global Offensive and DOTA 2 over the same 24 periods combined (around 1.4 million). 

  
This is a huge achievement for PUBG, especially given the fact that the game is a premium title and is still on Steam's Early Access programs. To say the least, the active player count of PUBG is astonishing. PUBG's player count is expected to continue to increase in the near future, especially as new features are added to the game.

I got banned for stream sniping a couple of days ago on PUBG. Which is kind of funny as i didnt know a streamer was playing. what stream sniping was or have ever even used twitch in my life to watch or stream myself. I have appealed and complained. The funny thing is im not the only one. I know a couple of other people who have been banned for stream sniping by over zealous developers protecting the publicity they get from streamers.Quote

TBH the simple answer to Steam sniping is to encourage Steamers to use a Steam delay.

I remember Starcraft 2 Streamers complaining about "stream sniping" and Blizzard simply saying that it is their own fault for streaming the game.

I honestly don't know what Streamers expect here, they are literally broadcasting their location for the world to see.Quote

You can get banned if the developers get a complaint because a streamer whines to them that you killed them during a stream- yes. I have written my third complaint now. Its total nonsense. I had a look on steam and im not the only one either it seems.Quote
