Point taken, would still like to see who i’m up against, in the off chance that we come up against another ZiiP squad.

I know they will be slow to roll out due to size. I would like more variety to the maps. yes, we only play one map on Arma, but the game mode lends itself to that map more than others. Would still like to go back to the older maps on that. As for knowing the maps, do you need to know them as well as in arma for that game mode? Personally, no. As long as I know a rough layout I think i’m good. Its not like the same things spawn in the same spots in each round in PUBG compared to Arma.

Bunny can be removed by not allowing people to shot while jumping, or making the jumps smaller/lower. Would still allow the faster game play but not go to realistic.

I feel BF1 deals with this quite well, if you are spamming jump quickly while moving forward, it slows your movements down quite rapidly.


#143

because I run this game on 1920x1080 is this the reason I struggle to see people on the game (distance)?


#144

Hi Mic,

You can change your fov in the game. Obviously if you had a bigger screen or more resolution you would be better off. I have noticed that Fl3x and Adrock can see more on the periferal areas as they have ultravides.
I might see how this runs on eyefinity(I doubt it will run as it does not support multiple gfx cards).

Players have until 3:59 pm PT/6:59 pm ET on February 9 to make the claim; in case there’s any doubt, the message emphasizes that “you won’t receive any BP if you click Confirm on the BP reward screen after the BP reward period is over.”

But the responses in the reply thread are focused almost exclusively on something else entirely, and it is, to put it mildly, ugly: 358 pages (and counting) of demands to region lock China. (The thread is also predictably salted with racial slurs, so exercise whatever cautions you feel appropriate before clicking.)


#148

They should regionlock people, but in a bit of a different way. If I’m in EU and my mate is in any other region then the two regions should be usable. Then you do not have squads of people from China or anywhere else playing on a server that is not in their region.


#149

Region locking can be simple. If you want to play with someone outside your region, play on a private/customer server


#150

@mars - saw you on PUBG - hoped you’d join us for a game


#151

Ahh sorry man! Should have sent a message to me, I was on with a mate. I was testing our streaming to twitch so wasn’t doing long games! There’s a chance I’ll be around Sunday evening


#152

good couple of games tonight (with that brief hackery bullshit inbetween).

Game 1 of the evening :smiley:

Came 2nd in Game 3 too :slight_smile:


#153

Boyah. First chicken dinner this evening!


#154

A nice rangefinding video for the 5.56 Assault rifle 4 times scopes.


#155

Nice video and good explanation. Seems quicker to range than the VSS or SVD style scope

I didn’t realise that 200m was below the chevron.


#156

Latest Update from 1.0 Patch 2

Client Optimization:

Reduced lowered performance issue when many players were in the same area

Bug Fixes:

Fixed the issue where character movement was instantly stopped and adjusted
Fixed the issue where character movement seemed unusual during the replay


#157

Second bit of news…

Tencent, PUBG’s Chinese Publisher is crackdown on the cheats

The majority of PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds PC installation base comes from China, so it shouldn’t be much of a surprise that Tencent, the game’s distributor for that region, has started cracking down on cheat software makers there.

Moreover, Tencent has the help of Chinese police to find, ferret out and bust the underground rings behind the bots. So far, the cops have opened at least 30 cases and made more than 120 arrests, reports Bloomberg news.


#158

Lol. Cheating feckers. Throw em in the slammer. Great.


#159

Yay! Adrock with the last 4 kills to win the match!!

Lucky jump and hiding in a barn for the win! Plus 2 create drops on the barn did help


#160

yup, first game of the evening again, more than enough for tonight :smiley:

landed in the center of the area (good call Hammy), checked three modest sets of buildings, hid in a barn that two crates simultaneously dropped on, then went for a jog round a hill and had five really intense minutes at the end.

i need to try and upload the last three minutes.
