    I've stopped playing the game. The hacking got really bad on Oceanic again, they fixed it to a degree but some hackers would simply wait until the top 10 and then wipe them all out with a pistol. It was pretty heartbreaking when it happened and they'd headshot you from 400m away with a pistol not even ironsighting it.

    The issue about it isn't really an issue at all, it's his baby, a pet project that got legs and became huge.

    Players have their own ideas about what they would like, and I hate the red zone myself, but while I get annoyed when I've been carving up the server and then my buggy gets nuked, I also understand that playing in a way that negates the risk of that happening is the angle Brendan likes as a creator, and it is functioning the way he wants it to.

    As the game keeps developing I feel the red zone will be incorporated in a better way.

    Yeah, hacking was way down for the last month or too on NA, but I've started to notice fishy bullshit again.

    Nothing on the level you described, though.

    Its not a unique game mechanic to BR games. H1Z1 uses carpet bombings around supply drops and The Culling has player activated gas clouds at predefined locations. In both these game titles this game mechanic can be avoided 100% of the time. For a audio and visual queue is presented that allows players to reposition. This is not the case with red zones in PUBG. Cover isnt always an option along with not enough time allocated to evacuate the area.

    When was the last time you played?

    Edit: Asking because your description is strangely outdated. The red zone has multiple visual and audio cues before bombs start dropping and the bombs are heavily weighted towards the center.

    Massive new balance update incoming

    Tldr:
    Map selection

    Miramar substantially remade + new car.

    Swimming underwater is much more difficult

    pistols, xbows, smgs are better. Shotguns and lmgs are mostly better.
    ARs are worse and better balanced with eachother.
    The DMRs can use some ar attachments. Sks does less damage, but there's a new rare dmr to supplement it.

    6 new attachments

    Bug fixes

    the fact that PUBG is so brutal is why it is so fun. My best friend got headshot while he was manning the gun on the car and then i got hit with a rocket and we just laughed our asses off because we were like ranked 3 team.

    You make one mistake in PUBG and you are dead.

    They finally dropped that miramar test server on console, and it was great. Test server is done now, but hopefully the actual map comes soon.

    Aside from going down the first night, the test server felt flawless, so it shouldn't take them long to bring us miramar for good.

    I know most of you are pc pub, but does anyone here play it on the box?

    I think @DynamicLoosener might.

    Is there an oasis in the top-center of the map? I'm curious how similar it is to PC.

    Yep, just went there to check it out yesterday. It seemed pretty lucrative and no one was there. How is it on pc?

    Oasis is a recent addition, so it looks like they're giving you the newest PC version to play with. It's pretty popular, but that might be from novelty. I like the area to the north of san Martin. Lots of small, dense compounds speckling the countryside.

    Anyone else enjoying the balance changes? ARs are still useful, but not nearly as dominant. And I don't know what else changed, but midgame isn't empty anymore.

    Love the grenade changes, new grips, the 3x and 6x scopes are fantastic. Map selection is a huge bonus! Feels like hacking is wayyyyyyy down too. The introduction of weekly event modes is huge too! Very much like what League of Legends does! The war mode was so fucking fun, and the shotgun only one was hard as fuck

    Thank god this games developers listen to the feedback and actually know what they’re doing


    H1Z1s method of updating and progressing the game was comically awful in comparison
