As many know, Player Unknown Battle Grounds has been taking the world by storm, gaining massive popularity from gamers no matter their previous game preference. Mostly, it’s player base originated from cs.go and H1Z1, also shooter games, where H1Z1 has little to no difference from PUBG, being a survival game too.
For many weeks, PUBG has been hovering between second and third place for the most current players in game, but has never reached the top spot. That said, over the weekend, PUBG finally broke this milestone and topped Dota 2 for the first time ever. Since then, PUBG and Dota 2 has constantly been switching the top spot mainly due to the regional difference in the player base of both games.
