    Basic questions on current custom games

    I just joined a War mode game, Sanhok, tpp, na. 16 solo players. I joined at #14 of 16. Shortly after we were at 16. Nothing happened. Then a message flashed up saying “session will be deleted in 10 mins" (or was it 5?) Then we were down to 14/16. Now back to 16/16. The game isn’t starting. Is this a bug or something else needs to happen to start the game (like the organizer needs to press a GO button??) "Session will be deleted in 4 mins" Now down to 14/16. Now back to 16/16. Now 15/16. Is this standard custom game problems? Players new to custom games will just leave.. like I’m tempted to do. If so, maybe a tiny adjustment - by PUBG - to the "start game algorithm" - if 90% of players are there just kick on. "Session will be deleted in 1minute" In the meantime we have moved back and forwards between 13/16 to 16/16.. Now, session has been deleted. What was that all about???
  3. Here’s hoping more options come for custom games but in the meantime can anyone please explain a few things: Existing games ————————- 1. I see a list of games under War Mode. I see one that says "Waiting" and there are 12/16 players. I click A and the legend at the top says "Initializing server, please wait" but nothing happens. I assumed I would be added to the game and become 13/16. Any idea what’s going on? 2. I click the next one after refreshing and it says "The game does not exist". Is this a bug? I tried a second time, same message. 3. I click the 3rd one - desert knights - and it adds me to a team, like when the organized Event modes were going on. I’m 13/16. Ok, so that’s good. Then a few more people join and it’s 16/16. But the game doesn’t start. Now it’s 15/16. Now 14/16. I guess people are leaving because the game hasn’t started.. What's going on, ie, why didn’t it start when we hit 16/16? Maybe it started initializing, people then left and by the time we got to the lobby there were only 14 left? Then the game does start. Awesome. Had some fun. 4. I played a "default" which turned out to be smg's with care packages. Was this an event mode? I thought I played them all but must have missed this one.. lots of fun as well. Creating games ————————— 5. Limited options I know. So minimum of 16 players in War mode and 32 in Normal mode. What is the "Default" version of Normal? Is it just like the main game but you get to invite who you want, play with less than 100 players if you want, and choose the weather? Or something else? 6. No ghillie suit Kar98 game option? Or shotgun game? Or crossbow? All past event modes. 7. If you create a game you are basically waiting for enough players to join before it starts, so, if you don’t have many PUBG friends (me) is there a place/forum/group for finding custom game people? Appreciate any insights, thanks!
  4. A few other people reported this on the discussion forum today. Here is my experience: Duo, tpp, NA server. Plane was flying over Vikendi, then stopped, then we couldn’t jump out. We all got tossed out at the end of the map, no parachute option, just arms waving falling animation, and I was network lagged for a minute or so. Then got a shotgun and killed a couple of people. When I tried to reload the shotgun it filled up to zero bullets, then they appeared 20 seconds later. Normal gameplay seemed to resume as everyone came up from their network lag sleep, if they were still alive. Never happened to me before. Was lots of fun and could be an event mode (without the network lag), but it’s probably a bug. XboxOneX, external SSD, hard wired connection, NAT open. But everyone landed in the same spot so it’s a server issue. My duo partner has an old Xbox and no ssd and same thing happened to him. And to all players.

    96 players all jump in one spot

    It would make a fun event mode. Plane drops 100 people at a random place on the edge of the map...

    96 players all jump in one spot

    This just happened to us. Duo, tpp, NA server. Plane was flying over Vikendi, then stopped, then we couldn’t jump out. We all got tossed out at the end of the map and I was network lagged for a minute or so. Then got a shotgun and killed a couple of people. When I tried to reload the shotgun it filled up to zero bullets, then they appeared 20 seconds later. It was a furor. I wasn’t taking it seriously and so didn’t try and get a better gun, but probably could have. Next time.. My buddy lost connection but landed in a bush and when he came back into the game there were only 24 people left. I was spectating him. "Just run squanch" I said as he was reconnected. So he ran, got a snowmobile and went to the other end of the map where the circle was and looted up. As he crossed into the first circle there were 9 people left. He won the game for us.

    Rare ninja sighting in Gatka?

    Thanks for the comments - I've put in a bug report. It’s happened to me in Vikendi before (Castle and maybe Villa) but I’m pretty sure not in Erangel. At least, not that I could tell.
  8. This has never happened to me before. Notes below including the video. I posted the video and questions in the forums to ask for other people's opinions. Conclusion is being shot through walls on 2nd floor in Gatka about 5 mins after the game has started. Running XboxOneX with external SSD, hard wired connection to router, NAT open. This game was playing in my region, OC.  I'm in the 3rd building from the SW corner, on the balcony at the back and I hear someone in the house next door. He is basically working through all the buildings. He comes into the base of my building so I stand just outside the balcony door pointing my gun at the door. He doesn’t appear to have any caution so I’m expecting he’s just going to open the door and step onto my M16. He comes up the stairs, seems to go into the two rooms up there and then... I’m shot dead by his bison. Door is still closed. He comes through the door without appearing to open it and starts looting me.

    Rare ninja sighting in Gatka?

    Even more confusing - don't know how reliable pubg replay is - watching from the side I can't see any gunshots and according to the replay he only has a tire iron. What kind of witchcraft is this?

    Rare ninja sighting in Gatka?

    I just checked pubg replay: https://pubg-replay.com/match/xbox/b27af36b-5e3a-4bf8-9404-2bbc41d2ac5f?highlight=stevecarsonr It's pseudo 3d in pubg replay so you can't really tell elevation, but he definitely comes from the building to the west (left as I'm facing the door) into my building and shoots from in front of me - could be on the ground floor or the roof as far as you can tell from pubg replay - but given that there is a hard cover over the balcony he isn't able (legitimately) to shoot me through the roof. So the sounds match the movement. Therefore, he's a ninja or walls have no meaning for him. Which also basically means he is a ninja.
  11. This one completely threw me. I went back to Gatka next game to try and figure it out. I can't. I'm in the 3rd building from the SW corner, on the balcony at the back and I hear someone in the house next door. He is basically working through all the buildings I’ve already looted. I close external doors but not internal ones so I'm wondering why he doesn’t appear to notice or care. It’s basically close to the start of the game. Maybe he's a newbie. He comes into the base of my building so I stand just outside the balcony door pointing my gun at the door. He doesn’t appear to have any caution so I’m expecting he’s just going to open the door and step onto my M16. He comes up the stairs, seems to go into the two rooms up there and then... I’m shot dead by his bison. Door is still closed. He comes through the door without appearing to open it and starts looting me. Option A - a ninja Option B - he was on the roof and shot me in the head. Maybe the sounds were all wrong. But you can’t get onto the roof from inside the building and there is a hard roof over me on the balcony. If the sounds were completely out maybe he was on the building to my right as I’m facing the door and jumped across onto the roof of my building. After going back to Gatka this seems really unlikely. I can’t do it. The sound would have to be completely wrong. Option C - he sees through walls and doors, shoots and walks through doors. This has never happened to me before in Erangel.

Appreciate any comments, it’s got me really confused. Running XboxOneX with external SSD, hard wired connection to router, NAT open. This game was playing in my region, OC.

    Game Crashes

    After none for months I had one the other day. But I restarted, rejoined my game, found myself against a rock as the zone was about to move past me and went on to get a win, so I can’t complain about it.
  13. Awesome idea. I think a marked "Die and Respawn" zone hopefully with a bunch of meds on the table as you go in.
  14. You were damn fast! I was impressed.
  15. Damn, you just killed me in Paradise with an SKS. Saw your head in the window. I kept trying to sneak a peek. Didn’t even get a shot off and you had killed me.
