I know this is still in early access and a lot of us have been burned by these types of deals but I really think this will be here for the long haul. I watch a lot of Youtube and folllow Jackfrags and Aculite mainly with some Stonemountain64 who play a wide variety of games but all play PUBG.
Jackfrags did a recent post about the amount of players thar play in PUBG (just on PC as console is not available at moment) and they have overtaken CS:GO and DOTA 2 players by passing 800K players.

There are two new maps coming, a new vaulting system and constant updates/patches. They seem to listen tom their community and build suggestions in.
If you are a novice (like me) or more experienced, this game is a great leveller. Everyone starts with nothing and regardless of where you parachute in, everyone has to loot buildings to get guns, attachments, helmets, body armour, grenades etc.
There are two modes of play - third person is the default but the First Person Perspective is currently in beta and adds to the tension as the 360 view is removed.
Brief description oof the game
If you don’t know the game then it is a Battle Royale game but stops people camping with the decreasing circle (playzone) and blue wall of health sapping death.
When you land you have a set amount of time to loot, kill (if you get he opportunity), find a vehicle and get to inside the playzone (white circle). If the timer runs down and you are not in the white circle, you will see on the map an outer blue circle starts to close in and will eventually meet up with the white circle. When the blue circle passes you, you start to take damage (sorry can’t find the Youtube that explains this) at a slow rate (at first) so you can still live, med up and get to the white circle all the while trying to stay alive / kill other players. But if you don’t make the white circle you will eventually die where you leave and start a new game (or spectate your friends if playing duo or as a foursome).
After the first circle, a shorter time will elapse and the a small white circle will appear in the playzone that you need to get to within a time limit before the blue circle again tries to kill off any campers/stragglers. I think the circle decreases 4 times and if there are still opponents, it will close completely and blue circle will envelop the players forcing them to confront each other and fight to the death.
The game also has custom servers so you can admin your own server.
It’s a great game to play, very nerve racking on your own but really enjoyable and very tension filled as a duo or squad of 4.
I have only had one chicken dinner win with BlackRaven and Flexxo
I hope you fancy this as this could be really great. StoneMountain has his own server and has organised 50 v 50 so there is potential.
