    Nickname Change

    Hey! That would suggest that the nickname is already taken. You'll have to improvise a bit in order to find one that is not taken.

    Event Mode: Crash Carnage

    Road rage is the theme of this week’s event mode where fuel and fire are king. In Crash Carnage, no firearms spawn so you’ll need to focus on melee weapons, throwables, and of course your driving skills to carry your duo to that final circle. Circles move considerably faster in this event, so loot quick, grab a vehicle, and crash your way to road warrior glory. EVENT SCHEDULE STARTS: Oct 4, 7pm PDT / Oct 5, 4am CEST / Oct 5, 11am KST ENDS: Oct 7, 7pm PDT / Oct 8, 4am CEST / Oct 8, 11am KST AVAILABLE QUEUES 2-man duo team on Erangel (All Regions) NA/EU/AS: TPP & FPP KR/JP/SEA/OC/SA: TPP RULES Teams of duos will fight in Erangel.

    Dev Letter: Rank System Beta

    Hey everyone, In today’s Dev Letter, we’re talking about a brand new way to track your progress and show off your skill in PUBG. A Rank System has been a highly requested feature for some time now and we’re excited to finally be kicking off the first beta season. With it, we hope players will be able to better see their own growth, while being able to see where they stand among the millions of PUBG players out there, no matter which way they choose to enjoy the game. And best of all, once beta is over and we start real seasons, we’re planning some great end-of-season rewards surrounding this system. For now, let’s talk about the system itself. Rank Seasons The PUBG Rank System gives players another way to show off their skills as a survivor. You’ll begin each new season by playing 10 placement matches to determine your initial rank. From there, each game you play will adjust your Rank Point total, which determines your overall Rank. For the beta, we’re targeting about a 2 month season as a test window and will take a look at how that feels once it’s complete. Earning Rank Points Rank Points are accumulated by simply playing and performing well in games. Kills and overall placement both contribute to these points with a higher amount awarded based on how well you do. The rank tier you’re in and number of players in your game are also taken into consideration to calculate your final RP earned for that game. RP can be lost as well, so consistency is the key to achieving the next Rank. While the overall calculation for how RP is earned has many different factors, here are some rough examples of the amount of RP a Diamond player can expect to earn in matches: A Diamond player who wins a game with 8 kills would earn around 30 RP A Diamond player who wins a game with 1 kill would earn around 20 RP A Diamond player who ends a game in 100th place with 0 kills would lose around 20 RP Rank Tiers There are 8 different tiers for Ranks in PUBG, which progress as such: Each of the 8 Ranks represents a range of total RP earned throughout the current season. At the start of a new season, RP will be soft reset and you will enter placement matches once again to determine your new starting rank, which takes into account your final standing from the previous season. Ranks will be gained and lost as you cross their point thresholds, with no additional qualifying matches required to move to the next rank. These tiers are also separated by queue type, meaning that you will have a different Rank in Solo, Duo, and Squad queues which are also separated by FPP and TPP. We want everyone who loves PUBG to be able to experience the new Rank System without being forced into a specific way to play, so the choice is yours whether you focus on one or all of the different queues! The chart below represents the different RP values required to achieve a certain Rank: And for even more prestige, each queue will have a Top 100 leaderboard, showcasing the best of the best players in each game mode. This leaderboard is global, so showing up on here means you’ve clawed your way through some of the best players PUBG has to offer. Good luck! Matchmaking Updates With the introduction of Ranks, we also want to clarify how matchmaking is handled. There is still a separate MMR that is calculated based on your overall performance in games. This overall MMR will determine who enters matches with you and does not take into account your Rank or Rank Point total. Due to the sheer amount of players needed for each game, the matchmaking pool needs to be a little more open than simply adhering to Rank like a game with only 10 people per match could, while also helping with overall queue times. However, as you achieve higher ranks, many of the same performance factors are going into how many RP you’re earning, so in many cases high ranks will be matched with each other regardless. We’ve also updated how regions work in general, so that the server closest to you will automatically be preferred when the matching pool in that region is sufficient. If that matching pool doesn’t have sufficient players, the next closest server will be chosen. We’re excited to kick off the first PUBG ranked season beta with Update 22, and hope our players enjoy the added prestige that comes with your shiny new Rank medal. We’re looking forward to your feedback on the system, so hop in game, knock out those placements, and show the world what you’re made of!
  7. Hey @levisW do you know what actions has your teammate done before he was able to jump teleport like that? Was he able to do that from the beginning of the match or suddenly after he has done something during the match?

    Flare gun doesnt work

    Hi! Can you send us a video of the issue? Have you made sure to check for the available drops remaining icon displayed on the screen? If it says 0 remaining drops, you will not receive an airdrop, that means that the maximum amount of airdrops in that circle phase has already been used by other players.

    is this pc good for the price?

    Hi! I couldn't help but notice the "PC VALUE RIGHT NOW IS 1400£ " in the description. Buying the same parts on the pc partpicker UK website would cost you 1045£ which means that you would be paying 350£ more, for nothing? If you were to change the GPU for a Asus ROG Strix GTX 1080, the price would be 1291£, which is still a 100£ less than your prebuild and offers a tremendous difference in GPU power. There are usually many PC/Hardware repair shops around in cities that offer assembly service and should not cost over 100£. My advice would be to buy the parts individually and bring them to a PC repair shop or ask a friend/colleague who knows how to build a PC to build your PC. This route will always cost you less and will provide you with better hardware than the prebuild route. PC partpicker list for reference: https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/list/7hQ49J
