    If you use Reshade to make it easier to spot players you're as shit as the Chinese cheaters. If you use Reshade to make your game look as shit as old mates up above you deserve to be summarily executed in front of your family and friends.

    On a lighter note, PUBG's recent patches have improved the tickrate stability by a lot. It's at a pretty stable 30hz after the first 5 minutes. Not CSGO or Battlefield level, but it's a big step in the right direction.


    More anticheat coming in the next patch, too.

    Now for a practice area and a soft ping-lock.

    Dunno about summary execution but it probably warrants a spanking or whatever.

    Winning my first duo match with a friend of mine on my newly built theater room. It's a blast playing down here.

    I'm jelly of the above. That said, i wouldn't ever think of playing it on a console. just ew....

    Im still trying to get better at this game (getting there) calling out directions, avoiding tunnel vision etc. drives me nuts when everyone is trying to be quiet b/c hunting or just not knowing if anyone is out there and i accidentally fire off a round..... haha.

    That said, this game is so addicting its crazy. I still get frustrated at not having enough ppl to queue with. queuing with randoms is still 9 times out of 10 three other ppl speaking chinese etc.

    Well, I'm still below average, at least compared to some of you guys around here, but I had a pretty good weekend playing.

    Won 1 game and made final 2 twice in 20 games. My K/D ratio for the new season is actually 1.0... which is very unlike me. I normally hover around .50-.70.

    I'm normally dying now because of tactical mistakes and I actually win the 50/50 matchups about 50% of the time... lol. I've also learned that in close quarters, it's better to stay moving instead of trying to ambush because some players are very good at hunting you if you freeze up.

    I know what I need to work on. I still tend to automatically aim for center mass instead of headshots in close encounters. I'm trying to change that, but it's too ingrained right now.

    I've been playing lot's of duos with my brother and he's been slow to learn the tactics. Too much Call of Duty 4 from the old days. He's not always situationally aware and often exposes himself. He'll also aggressively try to shoot players that he has no shot in killing, while attracting the attention of every sniper in the area.

    Anyway, I still love this game. I don't to get to play a whole lot, so I'm not quite burned out yet. Though I can totally see that happening to anyone who plays a lot.

    Okay so is it worth getting? - im moving away from MMO's after a 12 year lock in WoW, time to go back to shooters. I used to play MOHAA on competitive ladders and played for the UK. So i do tend to go full nerd once i enjoy it.

    Im getting mixed reports from friends about Hacking. Some say its plagued with chinese hackers and just hackers in general. Others have told me theres some cheats but its very rare.

    How does Pubg fair up skill wise with games like MOHAA & CS:GO ?

    CSGO is the pinnacle of FPS games. Rainbow Six Siege is a retake server version of CSGO with some MOBA elements. Overwatch is a FPS MOBA that caters primarily to lesser skilled aimers who favor Blizzard titles. PUBG is a modern graphical take on H1Z1's King of the Kill and or a basic standalone version of Arma's Battle Royale mod.

    I played MOHAA back in 2002-2003 alongside RTCW. The current Call of Duty games have the same flow and map sizes. Battlefield/Battlefront series also has the same mechanics but on larger maps.

    Need to keep in mind that MOHAA was at a different time in gaming. It was when Pc FPS makers started throwing together multiplayer on their titles for high speed internet was common. Most who still follow this FPS formula have introduced character levels to keep players coming back to unlock better gear in multiplayer.

    Hacking varies. I can go days without seeing any, or I can run into three in a night.

    A lot of this depends on rank, play mode, and playstyle. Hackers seem to be likely to aggressively drop hotspots, they're (slightly) more common in tpp, and they're more common at the top 1000. (There's rough mmr: when I hit top .1% last season I started to encounter several top 1000 players per round; they were somewhat more likely to be cheating. Maybe 20%+ of my games at that level, from ~5% before). I think cheating is higher than that, but that's how frequently I see them in replays or deathcam in my games.

    Skill:
    Good players will do much better than bad players, especially over the course of multiple game. So skill makes a big difference, and a fair amount of the rng can be mitigated with skill. But in the end, a 100 man FFA with high lethality and low time-to-react means that skill massages the odds, it doesn't replace them. In a game like CSGO, with lots of rounds (smooths out the stats) and two teams of five, it's much more skill-determinative. In Pubg, skill improves your chances of winning a squad game more than it does a solo game, so you'll see good players with a ~5% winrate in solo against the public hitting 30%+ wins in squads. Squads have lower lethality, fewer possible outcomes, and more ways that skill matters.

    There's also "cleverness" v mechanical skills. Cleverness will take you further in Pubg than in most shooters.

    Skill wise... It's unrelenting. Even small mistakes are fatal. However, I think it makes getting kills that much more satisfying.

    I never played CS:GO much, I just didn't find it all that fun. I think it's because I played so much search & destroy for COD4. I played on a hardcore custom server for years and I didn't play much of the later COD versions.

    However, the pace of the game is very different. You can go long stretches without action, only to get shot in the back... definitely frustrating. But you can also land high traffic areas for lots of gunplay, with a high chance of getting killed early. It's up to you.

    As for as cheating, it's definitely there, but I'm not sure how rampant it is. I heard a bit advice though. Play the FPS mode more than the Third person mode. It seems that the cheaters migrate to the third person mode more, since it's a little easier for the lesser skilled players. I don't know how much truth there is to that, I have noticed cheaters more in third person, but maybe that's because it's easier to guess when someone is cheating in that mode.

    I really enjoy the game, but I can see why it doesn't appeal to some people. Plus, it's only $30.

    So true... I've been taken a few times where I just have to shake my head and say "well played".

    In DUO's, I've caught a few teams trying to flank by leaving one guy visible, but moving in/out of windows to keep the team occupied. Meanwhile, the guy's buddy is sneaking up for the flank kill. But when you know it's coming.... It's

    It's these encounters that make me love the game.

    Of course, I had to learn the lesson by having a team do that exact thing to us and dying

    Yeah. Other games also reward smart plays, but you can be really creative here.

    One of my favorite kills- I'm sad I didn't save it- was in the water. I boated out .5km to a drop and, when I got back into my boat, got shot. Turns out another boat pulled up about 100m away and was waiting for me. Clever girl. So I jumped out. Then I waited. After about a minute, he jumped in the water, I guess to make sure I wasn't sneaking up to hijack his boat. I jumped back into my boat, scoped in on his, and shot him when he jumped back in.
