    Help with PUBG region

    Perhaps the servers can be programed to display queue status for the regional servers - If you can see how many are waiting for each map in your region, it might cut down on questions. Transparency is good.

    VSS drop rate on Vikendi

    The within 50m number is skewed because of hot drops and killing of unarmed opponents.
  3. Thanks for the clarification, and your explanation does support what we see when playing on the NA servers late in the evening into early AM hours. It also illustrates in effect what I was saying about PUBG ping "scheme " being ineffective in combating lag. rubberbanding, desync, etc. Still more work to be done / steps to be taken...
  4. 120ms ping from the US-East to the EU is really not so bad. But what is unfortunate (and illustrative of how ineffective PUBG ping matching "works" in reality) is Asian players get matched with me on US-East servers: my ping is usually 9ms - 13ms, and I cannot imagine what their ping is, but I'm sure the differential is advantageous to them

    Why did PUBG messed up M16A4?

    OK, still the HK416 is in part derived from the AR15 / M16, and the G36 gas system is derived from the AR18. Let's agree that there is a familial design relationship reaching back to Stoner. But you are correct that the M4 is not a HK416, although the weapons are similar and not "completely different" (a G36 would be "completely different."). The USMC is adopting the HK416 as the M27. BTW, I was countering an earlier post that the M16 was the symbol of the American military, although it should be the M4 since it is has essentially replaced the M16 in current deployments. FYI according to the all-knowing oracle WikiPedia: Heckler & Koch HK416[edit] Main article: Heckler & Koch HK416 The Heckler & Koch HK416 is an assault rifle designed and manufactured by Heckler & Koch. It is based on the M16, and was originally conceived as an improvement based on the Colt M4 carbine family issued to the U.S. military, with the notable inclusion of an HK-proprietary short-stroke gas piston system derived from the Heckler & Koch G36. The HK416 was used by U.S. Navy SEALs to kill Osama bin Laden.[191][192]

    Why did PUBG messed up M16A4?

    Agreed. A real person hit by 2x 5.56 rounds will not be having a good day, regardless of body armor. Requiring 4-5 for a down is ridiculous. 3x hits seems to be the right number at close - medium ranges.

    Why did PUBG messed up M16A4?

    The amusing thing is the Mini-14 is a ranch rifle designed for varmint hunting, while the M4 and M16 are military rifles. And the M4 has a longer barrel than the Mini-14, which in theory would make it a harder hitting weapon: Mini-14, 13" barrel; M4, 14.5" barrel. The M16 *should* be the most accurate / long ranged of the bunch with a 20" barrel.

    Manufactured the US, and equips the US Army - based on the AR15, which the M16 was also based on: - aka an American design. The game M416 = HK416 = M4 (US service designation.)

    And the M4 (HK416) is not?

    Vikendi Secret Cave

    I wouldn't mind if I had to pay a nominal amount for new maps, but if what was said in the YT vid was correct about the Cave crate needing purchase - that unbalances the gameplay. Buying advantage schemes suk.

    Vikendi Secret Cave

    Hold it - you can only get access if you buy the Cave crate? Did I hear that correctly? That is BS.

    Cheating Discussion

    Your first example seems like classic ping differential (for whatever reason.) The second, IDK...

    Cheating Discussion

    I took a break from PUBG over the summer and fall because cheating was out of hand, and the technical issues with the game were not being addressed sufficiently. I'm back, and while I only play FPP, I've noticed far few cheaters than before. However, their "ping-matching" doesn't really work. I have a 10-20ms hop to the NA servers, and rarely have packet loss. I regularly see players in my games that show evidence of a high ping rate. Given that many players don't speak English (particularly after 11PM EST), one could logically conclude that players outside of the NA are being matched with players within NA. Lag, desync and hit reg problems still exist.

    Which makes no sense since a "Mini 14" has a shorter barrel (13") than an M16A4 (20") - shorter barrels generally are less accurate than longer barrelled rifles. The AR15 / M16 design is also is a straight recoil design which means the recoil energy is transmitted rearward with little muzzle climb. It's a PUBG thing.
  15. Would be nice, but beyond the abilities of the coders it seems.
