    Erangel Changes

    Is there proof they scrapped the idea? Im dreading this change. It’s the sole reason I can’t play Vikendi without being a building clearer going house by House with shotgun and smg.

    Survivor pass level

    I’m level 7. I regret buying the pass. It hasn’t been anywhere near as enjoyable as the sanhok pass was.

    Lightening has struck!

    That’s what I’m saying! Sure the game isn’t perfect but I’m not even good enough to care. I’m simply loving this game for what it is every time I get to play it. When i get a win 1 out of every 200 games or so it makes my entire week! Every update gets better and better for me personally. Glad I’m nowhere near a pro level where every little issue kills my playing experience.

    Kill 10 players with a crossbow

    Crossbow is amazing I tried it one day just for fun got two kills I was ecstatic. Try it strictly with a 3x scope. Thank me later...

    Vikendi promotes camping

    Yeah I’d be happy if half the compounds were removed. But i think this is just what they wanted for this map. Its halfway tolerable in fpp at least. In tpp it’s a nightmare. Sometimes when I play Vikendi too much and get a little bored I begin to simply take a smg and shotgun and just become a building clearer and it passes the time pretty well until I get any different map.

    Mini map auto zoom

    Xbox one x fpp solo during parachuting I’ve found that the mini map doesn’t scale with a wider view as it used to. Normally it zooms itself in once you slow down but at faster speeds it had been zooming out slightly. Now it seems to just stay at one zoom level regardless of freefall speed. Maybe that’s the trade off since we can now hold the map button to enlarge it anyway?
  7. I don’t think it’s feasable to get to select the map we want I think it should be completely random so that queue times are low and no map dies. Mainly in regards to fpp. The tpp people seem to have it all anytime day or night. That being said, selecting 1 out of 4 maps to be excluded from your personal queue seems reasonable to me. Kinda like a best case scenario I think. Dont get me wrong, in a perfect world I’d love to have the option to choose which map we want to play any given time we feel like it. But i don’t see that being possible with the player base on Xbox. Especially on fpp. Tpp playerbase can probably handle it though. Maybe give true map selection when the servers are fairly full during peak hours. And during non peak hours revert back to random. I dont know... but I understand the struggle wanting to play the map you love while not killing the other map that others might love. Tough call...
  8. I use a lot more map waypoint markers to mark my path. Then just use compass follow my mark. It’s not ideal but it gets me by good enough I think.

    Day 1 Results

    I’m playing horrific! Don’t even think I’ve seen a top ten. But love the update! So smooth I haven’t experienced any issues here in NA. Quick join is beautiful gets me a solo fpp game in a random map nearly instantaneous. New parachuting is very cool. Love the calming woosh of air when you leave the plane really relaxing way to start the game. Hopefully I’ll get used to the smoothness soon and begin performing better. Feels like a brand new game I’m very happy with the update.

    Wow the competition is rough

    Yes framerate is up gameplay is smoother everyone’s aiming and ability to acquire their targets is much better.

    Am I playing in NA?

    I think it tries to get you the fastest game possible. It searches your own region first and if it doesn’t find anything it starts branching out to other regions. Personally im ecstatic to get into fpp games immediately. Regardless of whether I want to play the map it gave me or the region it put me in.
  12. Found it in store right now just as others stated
  13. Oh excellent I’ll take the 10$ then if they have it. I’ve got no use for the uniform or g coins. I love my camo padded jacket. However even though I’m happy to add it into my map rotation, I don’t feel like I’ll be playing Vikendi as much as I did sanhok when it came out. So I’ll have to soul search a bit before I hit the purchase button on the 10$ pass.
  14. I disagree with the tracer rounds. But the weapon wheel sounds harmless enough I could get behind that idea to replace the useless emote wheel which only seems to glitch and pop up unintentionally during high pressure situations of fast button pressing for me.
  15. I would pay 10$ like the sanhok pass because I feel that’s somewhat reasonable and I’ll enjoy leveling up and collecting the little stuff to see how far I can go. I was fortunate enough to receive a camo padded jacket six months ago and that’s all I really ever wanted cosmetically. But 25$ for the pass is a bit out of my price range. I’d have to skip this one if that’s the lowest price pass.

    Turtle Beach Elite Pro TAC

    Also I use a 24 inch monitor and sit close to it so having the headset and controller connected wired works easily. If I was on a tv it might be an issue using all wired connections

    Turtle Beach Elite Pro TAC

    Interesting. Well I don’t necessarily regret getting the whole elite pro 1 package. But I guess i wish I could’ve tried the Astro package and their tac and stuff. But I had to make a choice at the time and I chose the turtle beach mainly for the superhuman hearing and footstep focus strictly for pubg. Anything else I use the main sound setting and am satisfied with it except for a little lack of bass. Anyway if there’s anything I can help you with pictures of the setup or other questions I’ll be happy to help just let me know and I’ll do what I can to help you make your decision.

    Turtle Beach Elite Pro TAC

    I got talked into the whole elite pro package a year ago when searching for a headset. I’m not really satisfied with it sound quality wise. But it is very comfortable and the tac is so easy and fun to use being able to route my phone into the back of it for music or phone calls directly mixed into the headset audio. I dont chat often as I’m mostly a solo player but the mixing options are very cool to get the right amount of voice and game audio. However yes I have to have a wire from the tac to my controller. Then of course the long wire to the headset. I don’t really have a problem with wires even though I’m drowning in them haha. I always liked the little extra sound quality I got from a wired connection rather than wireless. But nowadays the wireless might be just as good quality but I don’t feel like giving it a chance. From what I heard there is a new elite pro 2 on the market that might be wireless. I don’t know much about it as I’m using the old elite pro.
  19. 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.

    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.

    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.
