Bluehole Mode is the latest test in PUBG Labs and brings a unique and most likely, controversial change to the Blue Zone.
Land, loot, and camp in the circle for the rest of the match no more. Circle squatters that felt safe not to engage the enemy will now be forced to keep it moving as a second Blue Zone is being added to the existing circle.

PUBG Corp explained the decision behind making such a unique game change, "Players didn't know where the next circle would be, so whoever was lucky enough to be in the next circle had a higher chance of winning. As the next circle location was unknown, players could often find themselves fighting with the Blue Zone more than their foes and have to hoof it the entire match. The new "Inner Blue Zone" will be both a camping deterrent and an indicator of where the next circle will be."
It seems like a valuable change to allow for a more fair playing field, giving everyone a chance to start making their way toward the next zone, but the zone can also be a deterrent. It will damage players the same amount as the next zone. I have a feeling PUBG players will end up camping anyway, just near the next zone spot, causing massive fights as everyone fights at the edge of the zone.
