I just started playing Battlegrounds. I'm actually really enjoying it.

It has been a long time since I was really excited about a game. PUBG is the first game since DayZ mod that got pretty much all my friends playing online games together again.

Horns if you are still curious, it is a very skill dependent game for consistent performances. However, I think one of the reasons it is so popular is that every dog can have his day. If you are sneaky enough and patient enough even if you aren't in the top 10 most skilled players in the game you can make the top 10 reasonably consistently and even win the game.

I can't seem to play with anybody with a consistent ping. I'm pinging great so I get popped ezpz but they glitch across like no ones business. Can never lead them the same amount twice. Makes for a very challenging game. I need to try the EU servers for 'better' ping. That or I need to drop the fiber to get steady results I guess...

Esports ready, son.

Did you see the patch list for september that they posted? maybe they'll have something attempting to address it. I think it's already live on the test server, if you want to see if that's any better.

I've been having better luck in the EU servers. I've learned over the years that ~150 ping is about right. I'm showing a 25 in EU but I can already tell they have a harder time hitting me. Maybe it's at least about fair now.

I'm going to have to start getting boneless skinless dinners. These fried chicken dinners aren't helping my waistline...

I'm curious, do you actively seek out combat? Like do you prefer to drop into populated areas and hunt people down?

I almost always drop as far from other people as possible and play to avoid the most likely populated areas. I feel like it does a good job of keeping me alive to get into the final rounds, but then I'm not well prepared for the eventual gun fights because I haven't had much actual practice...

Maybe I should start playing some rounds where I try to get into combat quick, and just expect to die early?

Depends on my mood. Now that I can hit what I'm aiming at I'm having more fun jumping into more populated areas. I used to stay away from people but found I never had much time to loot and when it came down to a fight I was usually out gunned.

Now I like to jump in one of the towns near the center of the map so I never have to go too far. More times than not I get lucky on the first reduction and get extra time to loot.

After I am forced to start moving I usually try and do as much on foot as I can while keeping on the outer edges. After a few reductions I bail on the edges and try to predict the final smaller areas. It's almost always in a field with little to no cover. If you can get there before everyone else you can spot the movements easy peasy and since you're not moving it is hard for them to see you.

I die A LOT! I've got like 130 hours in now? So I pretty much suck but like the red army posted thats partially why the game is so fun. Even an idiot like me can win.

I'd like to see them play again now that I know more about it. See what their strategies are.

I've played with some friends on-line and even with Team Speak we almost never do well. I'm sure I'm to blame for most of that but that doesn't explain why I win so much more often when I'm solo.

We have to stick together so when I would normally do one thing the group usually does another. They drive too much for my tastes personally. I'm more of a stealthy player. IDK fun times.
