    Improvement from unlikely source

    Amazing, as was I completely set in my ways... I had to experience it to believe it. I always thought anything under 20ms is good enough and I wouldn’t be able to tell the difference as a console gamer. I’m absolutely just blown away. I feel like I’ve wasted all these years handicapping myself with high response time. I’m even going back to other games I used to play to see how much better they feel. It’s so crazy to me lol

    Add this

    They had added outlines on items on a previous update. Then people complained about it and it seems it went away. Personally I didn’t mind it I thought it was kinda helpful especially in dark rooms. But I can appreciate the reasons people wanted it taken off as well. I tend to try and open my inventory anytime there is any potential items to pick up. So that I don’t miss anything.
  3. For anyone interested who is struggling to improve their aim, recoil control, gunfight success rate, etc. with a controller. I have always been a tv gamer until this awesome game came to our Xbox a year ago. I was given a 1080p 21 inch dell monitor and I decided to change up my setup since I was beginning to log more hours gaming because of pubg. So I began using a monitor to play with sitting closer to screen etc. I felt pretty good overall but still struggled like a lot of us and blamed it mostly on low framerate and funny sensitivities and junk. Come to find out that monitor had a 7ms response time. I just recently got fed up with it and talked myself into an Asus eyecare brand monitor. Hoping it would relieve eye strain and headaches I get occasionally from long sessions of pubg. I didnt need the 144hz ones because consoles are limited to 60fps so I picked up a 75hz and was intrigued by the 1ms response time feature. Ive always been well aware of input lag and response time during my gaming life but once I made the switch this week to 1ms I wasn’t prepared for how drastic the improvement was right away. I found myself winning more close encounters and gunfights at medium to long range than I ever did before. I thought well maybe it’s the better frames on test server Vikendi on resolution mode. Then switched back to live server and was amazed the improvement was still there. I’m loving the 1ms response time. It’s incredible. I’m still not a great player but I feel I’m able to compete more in aggressive situations. Track targets better single shot or spray. I’m just amazed all around what a difference response time makes. I also plug my elite controller into the Xbox 1 x hoping to eliminate any wireless input lag. Whether that helps or not I’m unsure. Anyone struggling like I was check out your response time. Because I believe it truly makes a difference. The monitor I purchased is a vp247qg. But I’m sure anything with 1ms response will react this same way. Anyways I hope this information might help someone who has been struggling to improve despite putting in massive amounts of playtime like myself.

    External SSD vs HDD

    I haven’t experienced any problems with my 256gb ssd on my x1x. I fresh installed onto new drive, full shut down and restart console, and it’s been outstanding ever since for loading the game quickly. Does wonders with other games too. My only regret is not getting a larger size. There was one single instance where the Xbox didn’t recognize the drive for some reason when I turned it on. I restarted it and unplugged replugged in the ssd and it resumed its successful performance benefiting my impatience for loading screens once again.

    PTS to Live Servers

    I’m sure any day now.... each afternoon I wake up first thing I do is check news and announcements. Just dying to see a new post for update.

    Two weeks later...

    Yeah I’m betting they rushed the test server out to us before Christmas vacation. Now they’re barely beginning to get back to work on it after two week vacation. Otherwise I think it would’ve been updated to live server by now. Hopefully we’ll get an update by the end of the week.

    Vikendi Launch

    I can’t wait to get this update to live. Getting sick of this new map wanna see the new features on the other maps. Can’t go back to live server until then.

    Vikendi - WIll we par with PC?

    Interesting... well you guys have gotten my hopes up...

    Vikendi - WIll we par with PC?

    I feel like we won’t be able to get the replay capabilities of pc. It might require large amounts of storage to store past matches and I don’t think Xbox can do that in conjunction with its normal dvr capabilities. Hopefully I’m wrong though.

    Trying different games

    I tried to stray from PUBG. Bf5 held my interest for a day or two. But I couldn’t stay away. Its funny it’s like PUBG is not just a shooter it’s a mini adventure every game. Always the same formula every match but always different. I just can’t find anything else to enjoy like it. I always enjoyed flight games and ace combat 7 is coming out this month. I loved the entire ace combat series growing up and I hope this one doesn’t disappoint. I’m definitely going to play it but I’m sure I’ll still make room for pubg each gaming day.

    Rubber banding

    I have a wired connection and haven’t had any rubber banding at all in the test server. I have about 80mbps download speed and 6mbps upload.
