Twitch has added new filters to their PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds page, so viewers can now sort streams by how many players remain alive – in other words, to skip to the exciting parts.

If you head over to Twitch’s PUBG page you’ll see there’s a new option for ‘remaining players’. Viewers can select ‘more than 50’, ‘25-50’ or ‘fewer than 25’ – so you can get to the more exciting parts of a match, and skip the long opening gathering phase, if you so wish.

There is also now a filter for ‘team type’, which has the options of ‘duo’, ‘squad’, and ‘solo’, the last of which, we’re assuming, only features spoilers for Solo: A Star Wars Story (although we could be wrong).
As of yet there is no news on whether Twitch will add similar filters to Fortnite, which currently only has a language option. One thing you won’t find on PUBG Twitch streams, however, are those emotes that made fun of Dr Disrespect as those have all been removed.
