Why is PUBG Sanhok Map not a suitable map for competition?
It’s true to say that PUBG Sanhok map is a unique map that can make battles more intense. However, there are still some reasons for making PUBG Sanhok not suitable for battle. Sanhok’s area is the main reason for this, because the clashes will happen earlier than Erangel and Miramar maps, so the combat tactics for the teams will become tougher or even impossible to carry out. Many teams can be wiped out in the early phases of the combat easily. A number of players said that Sanhok would be probably more suitable for Solo and Duo battles rather than Squad.
In fact, there have been a few professional battles on PUBG Sanhok map, and things were not pretty good. Aside from players being forced to compete against each other early, the vehicles are also a problem when they don’t have much effect because the battle usually takes place in close range. The sound of vehicles will draw the attention of enemies or will make it hard for the players to go into the circle if there are many impediments standing in their way.
A recent match on Sanhok map showed that this PUBG map was not suitable for Squad battles when 10 players were completely strangled at the cliff area while one team gained victory after 15 minutes of hiding in a storehouse.
According to Ibiza – a skilled gamer of Team Liquid, PUBG Sanhok map may be better suited to 10 teams per game or the format of the tournament need to have some changes. While Sanhok map of PUBG may be more interesting than other maps like Erangel and Miramar, the skilled players and some experts don’t think so.
With a long period of time making a decision on placing Sanhok into professional combat, the PUBG development team will soon have appropriate adjustments to make Sanhok much better and more suitable for competition.
