Just a heads up for anyone wanting to boost certain achievements by matching with others easily through server selection. Tuesday January 22nd 2019 they will be automatically picking your region based on location and disabling the option to change servers.

Shouldn't be too much of a problem for American boosters as that's where most of the people boosting right now come from.

For everyone else it only draws it out. Fortunately I'm pretty much near completing PUBG, so at worst this might add 2-3 boost sessions for me.

Shoot things and don't die. Do that and you should be all right.

So when they say region. Does this mean the region that you have the xbox set to in Language and Locale setting or is it based of your IP? If its the former then I wonder if it is still possible to match make with one another if everyone sets the same Location.

If there's not enough people in matchmaking it will automatically switch to a different region, I'm in the EU server but late at night I often get put on NA servers. So I'm guessing even if you have the Oceanic server as your default you'll still only get put on NA servers.

I am lucky to have done this in three weeks before all the uPdates that screwed oceanic servers, raising the mimimum player count for custom matches and now removing region option.

Most boosters were from the US so that doesnt affect much

sure but this game is still a buggy mess. And a few of the achievements are really tough to get by just playing normally

Think it's because no one in Europe is playing FPP, maybe?
