  1. All of the above is good advice, but don't overlook the simple things as well. Get a big mouse pad! Seriously, you need me the room to move. I can't believe how long I struggled playing on the average sized mouse pad. Go big, you won't regret it
  2. I don't see team killing as that much of an issue. Its happened to me like twice in the past year.
  3. This pisses me off as well. The OP isn't talking about the "mustering area" he's talking about the actual lobby before you even "ready up". If you're in a squad and you have push to talk enabled you can't do it in the lobby. Once your in the mustering area you can talk to your team, but in the lobby the only way to communicate is to go into setting and change the mic to always on. It's really annoying. Seems like is should be a easy fix, but it's been like this for ages.
  4. The thing is how much of the $10 goes to Wacky Jacky? I would rather just donate him $5 via his twitch stream, than pay $10 for a skin.
  5. I've always loved Miramar, and I'm always that bit more excited when I get to play it. The game is far from dying. In the past few day's I've been squaded up with 3 seperate randoms who have said they've just come back to the game after a break of 6 months or more. And from my perspective the games in a good place at the moment, so let hope those 3 are indicative of a wider trend!
  6. I was just thinking to myself last night how WELL the game is running at the moment. In my opinion the game is as good as it's ever been (cheating situation aside).
  7. There's no way in hell I'm paying $10 for a gun skin. I would maybe pay $5.00 if it was someone like Wacky Jacky's skin, just to support him as I've enjoyed his content for the past couple of years. But they are way over priced at $10.00. My credit card is staying firmly in my wallet.
  8. Just adding my two cents. I played numerous games last night on Erangel and I didn't find there was loot overkill at all. I was playing squads and I think there's probably a good balance of loot now for that version of the game. I appreciate when it comes to solo's it may now be too easy to get kitted up. I'll try some rounds this weekend to get a feel for it. But lets remember, PUBG Corp made this change because so many people were moaning about the poor loot on Erangel. Sometimes they just can't win I guess.
  9. The one gun I love the sound and look of, is the Mk47 Mutant. The problem is I hardly every get the chance to use it as I always find something else more suitable. I want to carry an AR which can go full auto, along with something to sniper with. Whenever I pick up the Mutant for one of those two roles I inevitably find something more suited and I have to drop it.
  10. As an OCE player, I feel your pain. But the reality is a simple lack of player numbers. I suspect PUBG corp does try to help the situation by back filling the OCE severs with Asian players (just a theory of mine as I often get squared up with mainland Chinese on the OC server), but that brings it own "problems". One point where I have to disagree with the OP. A 130ms ping is not kinda shit, it's totally playable. I end up on the NA servers at a 180ms ping a lot of the time and I'll be honest and say I really don't notice much difference in game play then when I'm on the OCE sever at 25ms. I do sometimes get put on servers with a 230ms ping, and that I do notice and I dislike. That seems to be a step too far in terms of playability.
  11. I used to never pick up the Beryl. A week ago I would have agreed with the OP. But I decided to try and complete one of the those weapon skin challenges over Easter and I picked the Beryl as the one to go for. I was running around looking for them specifically. I ran one entire game with a load out of two Beryls! I now really like it. I've managed to master the recoil, sort of, and I now win the close quarter battles where two of us a are spraying each other from <50 meters, when previously I would have died. It is a bit ugly, it doesn't sound as good as some of the other guns, but it is very effective if you preserver with it. From now on I will likely pick it up over the AKM anytime.
  12. A couple of weeks ago the cheating situation was a disaster, no argument here. I was reporting 2-3 players every few hours of game play. That being said, the past week or so has been much better from my perspective. I've reported a total of 2 players in the past four days (and I played a lot over the Easter break). One of those players got banned 2 hours after I reported him. Cheaters will always be there. The game sucks when cheaters are rampant, but during periods when the cheating seems to be mostly under control, like this past week, there's a lot of fun to be had.
  13. The cheating situation is a disaster at the moment. There have been a couple of periods like this over the past two years, when cheating was way out of control. It really does destroy any enjoyment you get from the game, and ultimately it drivers players away. The problem PUBG have is that there are a number of other options (game wise) players have now, if they get really fed up. Back in late 2017 the options were not there, so we suffered through the hackers, but if PUBG let this go on for much longer, players are going to flee.
  14. I fully agree that cheaters are EVERYWHERE at the moment. They come and go in cycles, and at the moment things are BAD. I've been reporting cheaters at the rate of 1 every two hours of game play. And I only report when it's pretty blatant. A couple of months ago I would have been reporting cheaters about once every week or two. No doubt over time it will get better again, as it has done every other time this has happened, but it really kills enjoyment of the game while we suffer through it. On the other issues, I just don't have a problem with any of the changes they introduced in the latest patch. I was somewhat surprised / disappointed with the rate of fire on the UMP when I picked it up for the first time since the update. I used to use it a lot, but now, not so much. I never liked the vector, so I could care less if it now sucks. But there are so many other options gun wise, that I'm not getting all fired up re the changes. As for the new sounds when running, they just are not that noticeable. Seriously, I don't why everyone has lost their minds over it. Maybe it sounds different on different PC's, but for me it's a subtle jingle while I run. I actually think it now sounds more authentic.
