PUBG Mobile Asian Games 2022 Version Won’t Let Players Shoot Each Other

The Hangzhou Asian Games 2022 will be a historic event for the esports community as esports makes its debut as a medal event on the world stage for the first time ever, including games like PUBG Mobile, Arena of Valour and many more. A new report by the Korean publication, Money Today, seems to suggest that the version of the games in the Asian Games will not actually allow players to shoot each other.

As players can expect, shooting other players is a major chunk of what each player does in a battle royale game like PUBG Mobile – how exactly will it work in the Asian Games? According to Money Today, the version of the games will have players compete in skill challenges such as driving and shooting targets as opposed to shooting each other.

This decision was apparently reached after it was divided that it would ‘hard the harmony between countries’.

It was confirmed earlier this year by Krafton that an Asian Games-only version of PUBG Mobile is currently in development but the exact details for it remain sparse. The inclusion of esports in high-profile global sporting events such as the Asian Games and the Olympics has always been a hot topic purely for the optics that it brings.

Comments from representatives of the IOC seem to reflect the notion that video games such as PUBG Mobile, PUBG or any other shooting game are not in line with the core tenets of the Olympics.

It will be interesting to see how the Hangzhou Asian Games 2022 version of PUBG Mobile turns out to be. Development on the game is apparently not finished just yet and it looks like we’re going to have to wait a while before we can confirm whether games will indeed not have P2P shooting in them.

This Feature is Coming to WhatsApp – Silent Exit

Published

If you’re a WhatsApp user and you found yourself added to a group without your knowledge, and you don’t want to annoy the person who added you probably because it’s a family member, well worry not as WhatsApp is working on a feature that will make you secretly leave a group without anyone noticing.

According to the latest report from Wabetainfo, an update is in work that would allow WhatsApp users to leave groups silently. A screenshot of the upcoming feature shows that when you leave a group, other members won’t be informed about your exit. Only you and the WhatsApp group admin will be notified that you’ve left the group.

What this means is that when you exit a group, WhatsApp normally adds a system message in the chat to inform all participants that you exited the group; but with this latest development, only the group admins will be notified that you left a group. Group admins should always be notified about what happens in their groups, so it is needed to show them who exited a group.

The feature is still in development, and it will be rolled out fully once it’s tested in the coming weeks.
