  1. Ever since the patch update, foliage density was standardized across all graphical settings. While I agree it should be standardized, the amount of foliage on the map now is ridiculous, its bad for the cpu, and its bad for the gameplay in general. Prior to the patch, I found the game more exciting because I was able to hunt other players with my peripheral vision and it gave the game a real exciting feel to it. However, since the update, I go almost entire games not being able to see anybody because now instead of strategically moving behind trees, in bushed, or behind rocks, people are just camping in the middle of nowhere sitting in the tall grass and waiting. And while it may seem and feel realistic to some people, the game is ultimately a game, and this new grass has eliminated a huge part of the strategy employed in a firefight. Formerly, success in the game was based on well timed, proper movement, and of course, good accuracy. Now, players dont have to plan out their movement as much because they can just lie down wherever they are, ultimately dumbing down the game to an irritating amount of camping. i also find that when i go prone to shoot at other players, the grass clutters up my iron sights or scope to a ridiculous degree. I don't know if that is intentional, but it has ruined my shots on multiple occasions and is incredibly frustrating. Also, prior to the patch, players were punished for poor movement, like say when they chose to foolishly cross an open field, they were gambling. Now, if a player gets shot at, they can dive into the brush no problem. I just don't like how the game is becoming another version of dayz, I liked that it had its own style of realism but didnt encourage camping and and extremely long range fighting. The addition of the grass is going to make sights even more valuable than they already were because the grass disappears from view at a certain distance in the fov, not to mention the ability to pick out targets hiding in the brush in the first place. The grass makes all the lesser sights all but useless because you cant tell if there is a person lying down, or if it is a bush, and believe me they sometimes look the same. I love the changes to the frying pan and my fps improved a bit as well. The 2x scope is awful, it does not shoot where intended and disappears against a white background or in the sky. Also I got killed by two airstrikes in a row today when i was under cover in a house. Phantom reloads are getting insane as well, started this patch for me. Also I do not like the audio changes at all, they were superior last pathc, i cannot hear a thing anymore, no point inn usinng my ears anymore unless they are in my building. Anyone else agree or am i just an idiot?
  2. Do you guys reckon foliage should start at low, not very low? It'll be unfair to those who want to make their graphic settings a bit higher. Also very low to low wouldn't make any difference in performance if any. It'd be good to have a cover in a field where we can hide if we need to. Just a thought. Thanks!
  3. Many of my friends and I were looking forward to the new update for the performance upgrades, which granted in cities is MUCH better, however out in the open when before we were seeing 60+ fps now we are getting 20 and dropping them all the time. The only change I see that could cause this is the increased foliage, it has become incredibly dense. The foliage on low now looks like it did before on high which is very annoying for some of us that don't have the best PC's. Please change the foliage back or just remove the option at all, I realize it's a balancing problem but the game was fun and playable before and just isn't at all right now. I have put nearly 100 hours into the game already and have to stop playing it altogether. TLDR: Could play before the patch by avoiding cities, now can only play in cities because the foliage is causing major frame rate issues.
  4. So since the new update where you've changed the foliage so it's similar over all settings has completely destroyed my frame rate. I don't have an powerful PC so I've been running the game on the lowest settings. Before the update I was get a stable 40 - 50 fps and I was having a great time and since the new update it's dropped down to around 30 fps and it drops constantly. Now I know a lot of people are going to say "Buy a more powerful PC" but honestly I don't really have to cash for that right now. I understand you did the update to balance out the game but you've completely pushed the less powerful PC users out of the game. Increasing the amount of foliage I feel wasn't really a great way to fix this problem, perhaps adding this much and lowering the quality of foliage or something along those lines might help but for now I can't really play the game. I don't know whether or not this issue will ever get resolved but I just can't enjoy the game right now. Thanks for your time. Bakertron.
  5. I read a lot of threads people complaining about the huge difference in graphic settings. Yes they are huge and give different advantages. The foliage is the biggest problem. If you play PUBG with foliage on "Ultra" Settings, you will have a huge disadvantage against players with Foliage set to "Very Low". It feels bad having a good PC which supports the beauty of PUBG on High/Ultra settings, but you are forced to set some settings on very low if you don't wanna have a disadvantage against other players. The game looks beautiful on "High" Settings, the grass and shadows can give you huge cover, more tactical play, it feels more like a great Battle Royale Survival game. Imagine in First Person Hardcore Mode, laying in the grass just hearing sounds around you, trying to get up to spot people, hiding again while proning. Intense! My suggestion would be a seperate queue for people who wanna enjoy this as much as i do with graphics locked to a minimum of "High", all Settings! There's not a big difference between High and Ultra and people on High graphics don't really have an advantage over people on Ultra settings. So if you join such a queue, all other 95 players will play at a minimum of High Graphics too. You will never feel like you have a disadvantage, but you will be able to enjoy the game in it's full beauty, make the environment a much more important and dangerous fact.
