There are also bug fixes and general updates for the game which should hopefully mean that there are less problems with the game. Although there is no mention of improvements to rubber banding or lag issues. Hopefully these issues will be addressed in future updates.

If you look into the comments section of the update information on steam you will see hundreds of comments that simply look like this.

This of course is because Chinese players are the most prolific hackers and cheaters. This was even proven a few weeks ago when PUBG had a worldwide hacking ban. Over 75% of the players banned were from China. This has lead to many people wanting the Chinese players only to play on their own server rather than being able to play on any server they want.
