  1. Tonight, 3 med kits in first two houses I loot. 🤨
  2. I feel for you. Welcome to PUBG. This is probably one of the more frustrating occurances that happen during the hard reset. If you manage to "complete" the mission during the round, but just happen to run out of time the lobby reset after exiting game forces the reset of missions. PUBG, you need to either automatically claim the mission for people so they get credit for the daily, or you need to code it so that if their is an outstanding completion (during the last game), then don't force the mission reset on exit to lobby so it can be claimed (then after claiming, reset the dailies). This shouldn't be that hard. On the med kits, I've almost found it easier just to try and kill people and loot them. Chances are better of finding one on a dead player than general looting, as no one who finds a med kit passes on it.
  3. Well, can't say anything about any other region, but they definitely moved servers in NA, the consolidated in the east somewhere.
  4. Not too helpful, but I had to upgrade my entire machine to get my crashing issues to go away.
  5. Overall, you're just looking for the lowest latency and the fastest refresh you can buy for your budget. I would go to Newegg and start filtering by type (DDR4, 2x8G), speed (3000, 3200) and price range (??), and look at the best clock numbers. Then buy the best you can afford.
  6. Just wear the women's skirts and call it good, Sexy.
  7. I hear all this complaining about cheaters, but it's literally been months since I can say that I've actually seen one in game. Maybe I just don't stay alive long enough to see them. But I agree this game is in the best shape it's been as far as overall stability, they have made tons of progress. If today's game, where it is now, would have been released at the Christmas buying season 2017, or even 2018, we'd still have a million players per day playing. But for Bluehole, PUBG Corporation, it was a lot too late; priority things were not being addressed until half the player base eroded.
  8. Thought this one was funny. https://pubg.report/streams/44ba00d9-97f5-4217-a9e4-bfc126a24357/1493172283
  9. I usually keep it simple. Brown. Fits most maps.
  10. I'll trade you an 8x for a vert grip.
  11. Yeah, so for me, based on the global reset time, I basically have a 5 hour window of usable time to get daily missions done, and that's if I don't want to eat dinner and give up having any sort of family time. Otherwise that window shrinks to about 2 hours. Would be nice to have regional reset times for larger playtime windows.
  12. They just need the sell the haptic body suit as an add-on to the game. Instant feedback. Crank up the voltage and you can simulate the pain of being shot too. No more wondering.
  13. First guy, I know you have no viewers, but you should at least talk as if you do if you're going to go through the effort to stream. Hone your streaming personality. Also, love that 2nd guy's couch in the background, takes up 1/2 the camera shot. Maybe he hosts live guests?
  14. This one was my first win in a very long time, I went aggro on this guy at the end because of my Choco training. I knew I hit him with the sniper shot while he was moving to the rock and figured he'd heal at the rock. I chose to close the gap as quickly as possible to catch him while he might still be healing. You can see my attempt to jump on the rock and shoot from above (that's usually an unexpected angle, thanks Choco), and also tried to not be predictable by coming back around on the other side of the rock instead of continuing the line of attack (Choco always tries to reposition). Yes, he reloaded and got tagged, but what actually killed him was he anticipated me following up from the same spot and that got him shot in the back. The video no longer exists now, but I killed this guy on a third party play and he whined about being 3rd partied "I hate people who play like that." You know, standard rant stuff. But you and I both know that, given the same circumstance, he would have 3rd partied anyone in the same situation. I think he was partially salty because I killed him with an UMP too. I just laughed at his hypocrisy.
  15. Some people live up to their names around here.
  16. Well, except for the fact that PUBG has no such thing as open qualifiers for Solo or Duo, and seems to be exclusively focused on squad play for esports. Also, BH has not developed a system like Fornite to run Solo/Duo competitions (or squads for that matter) within the game environment itself. Sooo, when PUBG has that, then come back and update us. And you'll have to come up with even better ways to detect cheaters and circumvent the use of ESP/Radar.
  17. I have not clue what's going on behind the scenes but my gut thinks they are trying to statistically fit a certain amount of players into the different levels (think bell curve). They have enough game telemetry to model this, and so points vary from level to level to make it more difficult (or slower) to progress after a certain point (as we've seen demonstrated). They should come up with an unbounded progress system based on placement and kills. I would do some sort of exponential system for placement, where 100th place = 0 points and 1st is like 1000 points, plus 5-10 points for every kill. With enough separation in placement between 1st and 2nd so that 2nd place + kills could never trump a chicken dinner in points. I think something like that sufficiently rewards placement players and still rewards players that are really good at gun play. It needs to be unbounded, as play time should be rewarded as well. The more you play the more points you score. They can just figure a Points Per Game number as a stat to compare low/high game count players.
  18. I have a love/hate relationship with this game. But one of the reasons I love this game is that you can play this game however you want. You really set the standard for yourself with respect to what "good" means. Is it kills? Is it wins? Is it placement? Is it all of the above? The game is flexible enough that people will have fun and enjoy doing any and all of that. The other part of this game that you must remember is that this game is tough, period. You can be 3rd partied at any time and die, you will die because you had to cross an open field, you'll get shot in the back and die from someone you never saw, you will die by campers, sneks, and bush wookies, you'll die by headshot from a sniper at 300m, you'll die to nonsense like jumping out of your vehicle, you'll die because you hot dropped and didn't pick up a gun first, and you'll die because you were out played in positioning and shooting by more experienced players. You'll just die...a lot. In all of that, just try to have fun, otherwise it's not worth it. But you'll improve if you take the time to learn from what you did wrong and others did right in the situation. Figure out why you died, and try not to make that mistake. I watch my death cam, and sometimes go back to the replay because I want to figure out how the guy got into position and had an angle to kill me. Just last night, someone shot me from a window I didn't think could be used (half window, high on a wall), but now I know it can. Also, note to self, stop peeking the same window. Twitch (reflex) skills on PC are hard to develop, especially if coming from a console, but given enough time they do improve. However, PUBG is probably not the best game to hone those reflex skills though. Those skills come through games with a deathmatch or conquest type mode where you can spawn in repeatedly after losing a gunfight to work on quickly moving, targeting and shooting your opponent. So you actually might want to find another shooter besides PUBG to play too. Find the right DPI to use on your mouse too. One very important thing that you need to utilize in this game is sound. Being able to quickly locate people by shot direction or footsteps will save your life and/or give you an advantage in engagements. Several months ago I upgraded my motherboard and could not believe the difference in sound quality from my previous cheap crappy board. Things that I absolutely could not hear before with the old board, like footsteps two buildings over or someone running up the hill behind you on Sanhok, I could now hear. Hearing those sounds makes a difference in how you play and your situational awareness. And the last thing, master your gun of choice's recoil, and at least be familiar with all the others. Many times in engagements you'll end up just spraying, and if you can't control the gun you'll be at a disadvantage to someone who can.
  19. I have the Aorus Ultra Gaming and have been quite happy with it. The Gaming 5 is also a good board from reviews I've read. I also own the Asus Rog Strix B450j-F Gaming, which is a good budget board.
  20. It's certainly quicker and easier to just buy a computer off the shelf. You might find yourself happier if you invest the time to choose and build it. But it first starts with your budget, because everything about a gaming rig is a mix of compromises (unless you have an unlimited budget).
  21. DO NOT BUY a gaming rig from ibuypower, parts, especially PS and MB are underwhelming. You can build exactly what you want for about the same price.
  22. The math would be easy to do on that.. How many games did you play to get those 3 or 4 reports?
  23. Yeah, but it seems like there is always wind noise. It's not like the rain which comes and then goes after awhile.
  24. After looking at steamcharts.com, the easiest player base to count is NA/SA. I believe NA/SA is the trough between EU going offline and Asia coming online. Peak time is between 17:00 and 22:00 and ranges from 125K to 330K pretty consistently. First peak is Full Asia, Second Peak is waning Asia and Full EU.
