    This War Mode is Bad

    Here's an idea, lets make every game perfect for one guy who never seems to think anything is wrong with a game. I never take comments like these serious because fanboys will always pretend nothing is ever wrong just to troll people. War mode sucks, its that simple. 15 minutes of hot dropping in close quarters with a sniper? Dumbest idea ever. And regardless how much you believe you get to pick where you drop you never know who is waiting for you to hit the ground and immediately either knock you and take half your damage before you respond and if you have a sniper with an 8x than I'm happy if you have Shrouds aim because we all don't. What would really make a game better is if assholes didn't always act selfish and at least acknowledge that not everyone can shoot like shroud and thus its a clusterfuck for those who's skills are just slightly less better than everyone else. The irony of those who think there is nothing ever wrong with PUBg is that if it wasn't for the "noobs" they make fun of so much their scores would suck because they would only have players of equal or better skills than them and then they would be crying that servers never have anyone in them to play.
  2. Stop putting circles in the middle of a city like Los Leones while using crate weapons as the main weapons. Sniper guns in a city are useless, specially at close range. Lord have mercy can't you learn anything? This is TDM in a really small circle with the mechanics of PUBg. How idiotic can you be to put a circle in the middle of a huge city while dropping half the players with useless sniper guns with 8x scopes to get killed over and over because there are no good places to land without someone with an automatic weapon waiting for you inside 60 tall buildings. I can't believe you guys always find a way to ruin a potentially good mode. Just do it with all weapons not just crate weapons, that way there are not only more ARs but also SMGs. Hell, even a shotgun would be better than a sniper gun at close range.
  3. I love the new SLR, the map selection feature, the new Mirado on Miramar, the updated buildings in Miramar, the flaregun feature, the jetski, the new lobby concept and more. But it all means nothing if I spend more time waiting in lobbies before I jump on the plane, it takes forever just to join a lobby, I spend so much time just trying to reach an area because rubber banding keeps pushing me back, shooting blanks, having my scope and my barrel aim at different locations because the game doesn't tell me I am pointing my barrel at a window ledge and thus can't hit someone because my bullets are being blocked, invisible rocks that give me 50% damage when I hit them with vehicles and more. I have played all kind of games since as far back as the Atari 5200 and have never dealt with such a consistent and almost ritual like persistence of problems with just one game, one game. Oh and its interesting the audio thing you mentioned. Because they did include changes to the M16 to buff it and it turns out they did nothing to change it. WackyJacky proved it on his latest video. So basically they lied to us.
  4. I wouldn't say this is the best $30 spent. I enjoyed most COD games more than this not because the game itself sucks but because of the problems. I actually believe the best game I have ever played was L4D2 with the exception of the annoyance of players who you can't mute and the fact that they can team up and vote kick you just because they can.
  5. The game is broken again thanks to Bluehole updating the game incorrectly and I'm sick of it.
  6. I never had an issue with Bluehole making changes to the game to accommodate some of the complaints people have about the game. Some are genuine complaints but some are not and that's when Bluehole just breaks the game. I tried really hard to give them the benefit of the doubt, that developing a game and updating the code to fix the bugs in the game and to adjust the graphics and gameplay for a better experience was not an easy task. As a guy with a minor understanding of how coding works I get it. But I have been playing videogames for decades now and never have I seen a game break over and over and such ways that makes you question if you should bother continuing to play it at all anymore. Every single update is plagued with a slew of bugs that were not there before the update including repeat offenders such as matchmaking issues where you spend almost as much time just waiting to join a lobby as you do playing a round or spending more time just moving 5 feet forward thanks to the awesome rubber banding lag that keeps pushing you back to the last spot you were in a few seconds before. Bare in mind I am not even mentioning the bugs from the new features that were supposed to be ironed out during the test phase of the update (isn't that what the test servers are for?) but end up making the game almost unplayable for the first couple of days after the update. Playing PUBg is like trying a new game every time they do an update. It rarely ever plays right the first couple of times you try it out and takes a few days before you are finally able to play the game as it was intended. And then comes the really annoying part, the actual changes to the game. For months people complained Bluehole never listened to players complaints about the game, all the bugs, the issues with the gameplay and more. I want to say I am happy Bluehole is finally listening to us and trying to fix the problems in the game except now they are going overboard with the listening. Now they listen to every complaint and try to adjust the game to satisfy these complaints even when the complaints are stupid, exaggerated and downright the whining of a player who just doesn't have the skills to play the game properly and wants the game to be made easy for them to play. These latest 2 updates have shown just how idiotic it is to listen to every single complaint and attempt to please everyone. Shotguns are now broken in the game. A single shot to the head with no armor at point blank range no longer knocks a player. The single dumbest setting for them to have ever messed with. At that range barely a single pellet would have missed. Yet in previous versions I could be knocked by a shotgun shot at 25 meters with a shot to the body. It's like you can't win. All or nothing. They tweaked the ARs to make them more even. Although it's nice to see that an SMG is now a viable weapon to carry all the way to the final circles even as a replacement to an AR it's quite annoying that using an AR now seems to be more of a disadvantage because they were made harder to shoot. I find myself now losing far too often to SMGs at close range where an AR was usually the victor of most fights. Throw in the damn "I shot first" lag of the servers that amazingly enough only affects the bullets but not the sound and players are literally notified of your position as you shoot them, they get to react and shoot you after you already shot a couple of bullets and somehow beat you and then the replay seems to show you never actually hitting them first or barely giving damage that should have obviously been greater than theirs. Many will argue "you just didn't hit them in the head or chest or something and sadly one's complaint is pointless because the replay, yet another useless feature except for making sick Youtube videos, doesn't show what really happened thus you can't prove you got cheated out of a win in a gunfight that is obvious was yours to take. Though these days people arte such trolls it doesn't matter if you have proof they will still act like 5 year olds and lunge insults just to get a laugh. I'm already in the process of looking for a new game to play because it just sometimes doesn't seem worth to play a game where skills are too often useless if the game is gonna constantly deny you shots because of the broken servers and software. I'm an addict for PUBg, the first time I find a game that actually pulled me away from playing Call Of Duty. But I'm tired of spending so much time dealing with bugs after every update and ridiculous changes just to please the handful of players who want to be able to play on par with pro players by having the game changed to make it easier for them to play. I've never gone out of my way to criticize crybabies who are not complaining about legitimate game problems that affect everyone, not just them, but now I'm frustrated that Bluehole is tweaking the game far too much just to please these handful of unskilled players thus ruining the game for the rest of us. PUBg is turning into a "everyone's a winner" game where the only way to win is to have the server lag in your favor. I don't care if people chastise me for criticizing their favorite game but the truth is the truth. PUBg is not getting better, it's getting worse and unless Bluehole stops trying to please everyone and focuses on making the game more stable, adding interesting and useful features and items and doesn't break it like they do with every update (maybe every new feature should be tested as intensely as the Sanhok map was), maybe the game can stay on top but if they keep doing these stupid changes for the sake of people a handful of crybabies it's only a matter of time before another game outclasses it. Fortnite already gives it a run for its money, ROE is expected to be a hit once it hits the US and Mavericks is the most anticipated BR game right now and if it manages to create a stable game with a great experience while managing 400 players PUBg is definitely gonna bite the dust. And that's not even taking into account COD BO4 coming in Oct which, whether you hate the game or not, already has a huge fanbase and is likely to be just as popular as previous iterations of this particular series, specially after WWII failed to capture the boots on the ground experience. Bluehole, if you really are listening to your fanbase please listen to me. Stop breaking the game after every update. Stop tweaking every weapon just to please a handful of crybabies. I don't care if you add camos to guns, parachutes or even the vehicles we drive (actually that's a great idea), just make sure the game plays more smoothly, with better FPS and less wait time in matchmaking and lobby waits. Please focus on that more.
  7. It's always interesting to see there is at least one person who never has any of the legitimate issues games have. It's as if somehow they are immune to the bugs and shit from the game. But I never take the word of a single person who claims perfection over multiple people claiming to have the same issue. With that said I am not gonna assume every moment the guy from this post was because the devs are not doing their job but it's a known fact that there is a bug where people shoot first, land multiple shots (you can actually see the blood) and still die first and when you see the replay more often then not the other player either never took a hit or only took one, maybe two hits barely losing half their health and yet somehow manage to take you down with only two, maybe three bullets. This is nothing new, there are plenty of videos on Youtube showing this so to ask for proof is kinda ignorant to be honest. I had this happen to me and shared the video on Facebook. Big mistake to do that. Facebook has nothing but trolls who won't believe something even with video proof and instead just take advantage of the post to bash the player by calling them noobs and telling them to git gud, as if this never happened to them. But alas, Facebook, it's expected. In my video you could clearly see I landed 7 shots on the guy before he killed me. Bare in mind I started shooting at him as he got out of a vehicle. But the replay only shows me hitting him twice while he mowed me down like I was grass just standing there shooting in slow motion. You could even see blood splatter of the bullet hits with no damage taken by the enemy. Lag on the servers has always been an issue. You can even see it on live streams from the best players out there with the best hardware and fastest Internet available. I got three network lags today, something I had not seen in months. I never saw issues like this on COD, L4D2, GTA V and the many other games I have, at least not to the extremes of PUBg.

    PUBg has a new weapon?

    Really? LOL, I never knew. I didn't start playing this game that early. I'm more curious now. LOL
  9. OK, so someone complained about being bored in the lobbies while we waited for the round to start and Bluehole's solution was to put an apple in our inventory that we can throw? And this will accomplish what again? Do we get to pick it back up after it's thrown or does it break when it hits something? I can't believe I am looking forward to seeing and trying this new "weapon" in the 4x4 map test server.
  10. Forgive me for not being a perfect driver like you. Maybe you should start a PUBg driving class. Make a few bucks on the side. And no, I am not always full throttle. I'm pretty sure I know how to drive the vehicles, doesn't stop them from doing 180s or flipping. Not that I have to prove it much, plenty of videos online showing people flipping even at low speeds. You people always come out saying "it's never happened to me" or "rarely happens to me". There's always one person that these things never happen to. Those are the ones I ignore cause it's never a realistic response. I tend to do that, it prevents accidents most of the time for me but it's not 100% guaranteed to work. What bothers me is that the vehicle turns 180 completely. It never just drifts and allows you to recover and keep going. Nope, no amount of accelerating, decelerating or turning the steering wheel will stop the vehicle from completing the 180. And I don't have to go full throttle to flip either.
  11. I just wanna understand why is it that 80% of the time whenever I hit a bump, big or small or I turn my wheels a bit too far any vehicle I drive except for the bike does a complete 180. I literally turns the car in the opposite direction every time. Never 90, never 270, always 180. It's as if the game purposely wants to slow you down, that no matter how much you try to control the turn the drift will always win and turn you around. For a game that prides itself in realism there are far too many mechanics of the game that fail miserably at being realistic. Vehicle reaction to road conditions and driver's handling being some of the worst offenders. I'm the first to tell people to stop complaining about peoples play style. Sniping, camping, running and gunning, everyone has their own style. Even though PUBg tends to promote camping a lot I can understand why, it's a survival game after all, camping is a legit strategy in order to potentially win. But in this case making vehicles useless most of the time because of the terrible handling (unrealistic amounts of exaggerated drifting), their sensitivity to the smallest bumps that flip vehicles or cause the frustrating 180 turns or the invisible rocks you constantly hit and take extreme damage from. And don't get me started on how for some reason when the front tires hit a bump the car wants to fly but when the back tires hit the same bump afterwards they also go up but the front doesn't drop like it should, physics be damned. There's a difference between a ramp and a bump. Vehicles in the game should not treat every bump like it's a ramp and just fly off and then do barrel roles because for some reason every vehicle is unbalanced to one side or the other and it just starts turning sideways till it flips. Sometimes I'm better off just running.

    Healing not applied before knocking or dying

    Makes sense except this never happened before till this latest update. I have always seen that last second med apply. In this case the game actually shows you at 75% and then drop to zero a half a second later.
  13. There's a bug in the live server, which was also on the test server, when if a person heals and manages to complete the heal just before the last tick of the bluezone damage it still counts the last tick and drops or kills you even though the heal was at 75% before one drops. On top of that you lose the med kit, first aid or bandage used. I thought I had a video but it didn't record this one time. Another odd thing, a bug I guess, is that there is no parachute on the character when we jump out of the plane and the parachute comes out of our shoulders. Just thought I would mention that.

    Reward Players For Kills

    I only started playing PUBg back in Aug 2017 and was unable to play the game for 3 months thanks to hurricane Maria. It took me months just to get the hang of the game and even longer to get good enough to win my first solo chicken dinner. The game style was completely different from the games I was use to. I was a COD addict thus TDM is nothing like a BR game. The concept of respawning allowed you to take risks knowing if you failed to kill someone and suffered the consequences you simply respawned and tried again. Back then dying mattered little compared to the number of kills you got because you just had to wait to respawn. But if you look at how players played modes like S&D, even pro players knew not to run and gun this mode because the point was to eliminate the enemy team and this was done through strategy, mostly stealthy strategy. Waiting for the enemy team to make a wrong move and kill them before they killed you or planted the bomb. Camping was the main strategy in S&D, even in tournaments and no one complained about that because that was part of the game. Now all of a sudden camping is an unfair strategy in a game where camping is mostly the point of the game because the point is to survive not get the most kills. This should have been obvious to anyone playing a BR game. The problem is players like Shroud have created this fanbase who thinks his style is the only style that should be played except not everyone can play like Shroud. As a matter of fact I have yet to see anyone who can play like he does. I have more than 30 Twitch streamers that I follow, most play PUBg and not one, not even Dr Disrespect or Shroud's own friends Chad and Just9n can come close to his skills. Shroud is like a God. The man can determine a persons location with incredible precision no matter where the player is shooting from almost 90% of the time and can follow the failed attempt of killing him with a quick death either by a single sniper shot to the head or an amazing zero recoil barrage of bullets about 90% of the time as well. He is so confident in his skills that he rarely hides behind any cover (trees, rocks, buildings, etc) and actually spends most of his time just running across open fields taking shots from the open and even finishing off players he couldn't kill right off the bat without healing first. But this seems to be a unique ability for Shroud to be so good almost to the point of having doubts that he can actually be this good and is not cheating. Most other streamers I watch use nades, smokes, flash nades, flash hiders, suppressors and stealth tactics to win games because they know that's how you are supposed to play the game. They may not hide for long periods of time just waiting for other players to show up but they don't exactly run across open fields waiting for someone to take potshots at them or for them to see other players first and trust they have God like aim and never miss. Tactics are part of this game be it stealth or not. COD had one tactic, kill as many as you can by any means because the number of kills is what counted.

    Reward Players For Kills

    This sounds more to me like someone who is mad that they can't win a game just because some players have a different game style as they do. Sounds like my son who constantly complains about people who kill him regardless if they play like him or not. Some people can't accept that they can lose just as easily as everyone else. This desire to be at the level of players like Shroud and Dr Disrespect is what creates these complaints about players who camp. First off let me point out that the last kill of this game doesn't matter either because I have seen enough games where player with anywhere from zero to 20 kills win a game because the last player or players died to the zone because they made a bad position play. The winner didn't get the last kill, the game did so in the end the last player doesn't matter if the zone gets the kill first. Second this is a BR game whether you want to accept it or not. The point is survival, not how many kills you get at the end. People play to get chicken dinners, the number of kills is just icing on the cake. Any tactic used to gain the upper hand in the game is fair play so long as it's not a hack. If you're gonna complain about campers while looting for the all desired lvl 3 helmet and vest and the M4 and K98 with 8x scope then you're a hypocrite cause real players will win a game with any gun and any gear. It's funny to see people cry about the guy they never saw but call others losers for not being able to kill them first thanks to the lvl 3 helmet and not because their skills were better. And third there are rewards for kills, it's called BP. The more kills you get the more BP you earn. It's funny to see people cry about "what a coward hiding behind that bush or rock" while wanting to have the better guns and equipment in the game because they can't trust their own skills to win a game with anything less than an M4, a K98, an M24 or the AWM. They need to be able to survive a shot to the head from the guy/gal who saw them first so they can then shoot them in the face with their lvl 1 or 2 helmet or maybe I should nade them cause I can't get a clear shot without them shooting me first and I don't like being shot at, I want players who won't shoot back so I can kill them easy and then call them noobs and losers for being killed by me. I play to win. Something that doesn't happen often cause I am not a God at the game like Shroud and even he doesn't win every game. I spend a lot of time running rarely coming across players cause that's how midgame is. I don't always hotdrop because it's boring to spend as much time looking for any weapon only to die weaponless as I do in the lobby waiting for the next game to start. It doesn't take skills to kill and unarmed player, its takes more skill to punch your way passed a weapon and move on to survive the first few minutes of the game. I want to play the end game. I want to face off against players who are fully looted and pushed into smaller circles because I want to test my skills surviving the guy I get into a fight with and then survive the guy who heard my gun fight and came looking for the victor. If I get 2 kills I'm happy, if my kills were surprise attacks I'm ok with that, a kill is a kill. If my kills are a face-off I get ecstatic. If I get more than 5 or 6 kills I feel like a God. If I win zero to whatever number of kills I won and that's all that matters. If you can't play the game the way it was designed then maybe you should find a game that better suits you or maybe make your own game the way you want it. Complain about glitches that ruin the game, complain about the lack of new content, complain about how slow the developers are to improve the game in any way. But for the love of God stop complaining about how the game is meant to play simply because some people don't play by your imaginary rules. And even worse, if you gonna bitch about peoples game style don't pretend to be ok with their game style while calling them cowards for not playing like you do. Because let's face it, if a person who doesn't play run and gun like you like to and instead chooses to play a more stealthy strategy is considered a coward then by the same token a player who would rather run and gun than play hide and go seek but forgets that not everyone plays run and gun like them are stupid for assuming there are no campers around. Oh, and if you use sniper guns to get long distance kills, try not to make noise when you see an enemy and don't want them to know where you are whether they are aware of you or not and use suppressors to hide you sound and flash as much as possible you are no different than the player who hides waiting for other players to expose themselves. That's my 2 cents.
