  1. It's been dying for a year, plenty of people still flogging this dead horse though...

    Why would they make the game run badly/look shitty on the Xbox One X? What corporate strategy does that form part of? If you can give a good answer then maybe you are onto something... "Let's make the game perform badly and look like shit, then we will make millions!"

    They said the X uses the higher resolution textures and so does the PS4 Pro... The Xbox one X is running at 4K resolution, not 1440p, how does the fact that higher resolution textures are used on a machine with less memory translate to the game being deliberately held back on the One? More likely they just bundle the same assets with the PS4 Pro console version that they do with the X. We also know that it's more than just texture detail, higher resolution textures are one thing, but shadow quality, ambient occlusion, anti-aliasing, post processing effects etc etc can be subtly different but be very taxing on the GPU. The X is more powerful than the PS4 Pro, but the game isn't going to look much different. You have been listening to the foil hat wearers again.

    What? Where do they say this at all? They say nothing of the sort.. and this is two people speculating too..

    Ok we reached some sort of agreement haha ...a rare thing on a forum!
  6. Yeah, didn't even notice him until he made a sound, that's the downside of being aggressive, you get killed by a random dude sitting in a bush with a QBU once in while, but usually those guys aren't that good and die soon after.

    You are arguing about semantics, no-one else is. A SCAR is an assault rifle. We aren't saying a SCAR is an AR, we are saying a SCAR is an assault rifle. It's simpler to type AR than assault rifle, the same way it's simpler to type BRB, AFK etc. No-one here is arguing that a SCAR is an ArmaLite rifle. We are just calling assault rifles ARs because it's a game forum and not a technical/gun enthusiast forum.
  8. I always roam looking for people, always push gunfire. Actually just came second with 13 kills to a guy that had 1 kill. I was his second kill. He ran from the fight because I lit him and just managed to get this blind nade throw from being a rock that landed right in my face, I'd even moved from my original position by about 30 feet... Sometimes you lose to rng I don't really have a plan other than figure out where people are and push them. I try not to run across an open field for too long though so there is some positional thought... this hilarious encounter was from that game: https://xboxdvr.com/gamer/charlehpock/video/65393154

    Again, direct translation is "assault rifle". The two words together in German are concatenated, just because they are two separate words in German doesn't mean they retain their meaning when concatenated, it's one of the quirks of the German language. I'm using the terminology that's easiest to manage on a phone and one that works in the context of PUBG. I don't care if gun nuts use certain terminology. Are you saying the SCAR isn't an ArmaLite rifle or that the SCAR isn't an assault rifle? I can agree that it's not the former, but it is the latter. Arguing whether a SCAR is an AR because AR in your domain doesn't mean assault rifle is a little pedantic. ATM machine is redundant since the M in ATM stands for "machine", that doesn't mean it's wholly incorrect to say ATM machine and that you should correct everyone when they use it..

    You can be pedantic about the translation, language isn't so simple when it comes to translation. It means assault rifle. (Just because the words don't directly translate, German is funny like that, they concatenate two words and the final word means something different and is only a notion of the original two words)
  11. Charlieboy

    It does translate directly. "Storm-gun". Considering storm troopers were what the Germans called "assault troops" storm-gun is the weapons counterpart. Language is funny like that, storm doesn't mean thunder and lightning in this context, it means to rush forwards and overwhelm. We are talking about SMGs and ARs on a forum and some of us are using phones so typing assault rifle every time is going to get tiresome. I'm not disputing that you use the term AR for ArmaLite rifles, just arguing that by the words definition the SCAR add AKM are assault rifles.
  12. Charlieboy

    SMG needs regulated

    Wait, how is the SCAR/AKM not an assault rifle? Assault rifle came from the Germans when the Stg44 was manufactured during the war, the name literally translating from SturmGewehr. AR didn't stand for anything other than assault rifle until ArmaLite was founded in 1954 ten years after WWII...

    UMP is easy to use, therefore noobs like it because it gives them a chance before they develop recoil control skills. Recoil control isn't something you get immediately, it depends on attachments, which gun, your sens etc etc. I'd rather have the ability to long range people and be limited by my skills than be limited by the gun.
  14. Charlieboy

    What? It was the same distance... Just had a 2x on the M4... And the game stats show the UMP muzzle velocity is 400m/s with the M4 being 880m/s, I don't need a video to prove that, everyone knows it... The M4 bullets are more than twice fast as any 9mm. The VSS shoots at 330m/s being subsonic (hence the lack of sound when firing it)

    Definitely, winning is boring unless you killed 10+ people to get there
  16. Charlieboy

    You tell me

    I don't think he was 150m away, look on the map, the circle is cutting off the top of the square OP is on, so it can only have been up to around 100m. Three hits at that range where one is a headshot is a kill with the UMP. The worst thing about the UMP is that upper limb shots still do 27 damage under 100m. Likely though it was 3 to the centre mass with a headshot at the end. Just a whole boat load of shitty desync though, he was probably firing at you 10 seconds before you died. Using a red dot at that range is probably not the best idea though, 2/3/4 would have been good.

    Nice, but you know what I'm gonna say.... FPP! Want to squad up?

    Shooting people in water

    Yeah I seen this one, got the whole series on DVD somewhere. Love that PUBG Corp made it this way, it's so good when you are swimming and you know you are toast if anyone spots you. Makes getting in the water very risky. Won a squad game the other day when I was AFK and came back to my Xbox to find I was on military island and my team was in Pochinki. Got to the bridge and saw a crate land in the water, swam to it and got an AUG and then as I was swimming the rest of the way across a guy turned up to the crate in a boat... I swam backwards with my eyeball firmly on him - he drove to the same shore I was swimming to and ran into a house. I managed to get to shore, but it was terrifying that if he'd spotted me I'd have to swim for my life! Was this game https://pubg-replay.com/match/xbox/77ff9408-ca63-448d-b039-bee89584bd6d?highlight=CharlehPock

    the straw....

    It broke the camel's back
  20. I think you have some of those tinted nostalgia glasses on: Let's not pretend the X was working great out the box. It was almost as bad as the OG Xbox on launch apart from the fact that level streaming was actually better. This is just tinfoil hat stuff. I wish I could find a video that showed the mid-combat frame drops on the X - the ones that are still happening to this day... Here's one that shows launch day performance, as you can see, the OG only maintains a few FPS more than the OG in most situations: Things are much better these days.

    the straw....

    The mobile game is a good 5 minute distraction but it's filled with people playing on iPads, people playing with M+K and people hacking (especially at the later XP levels). There are also bots... lots of bots in every game.

    Stop going inside buildings...simple. There's no reason to apart from cover and you can take cover on the outside of a building. Here's what happens to people in buildings https://xboxdvr.com/gamer/charlehpock/video/65066945 Being inside a building does not make you safe, and it also means you lose all visibility/awareness of your surroundings. The only thing buildings are good for is temporary cover while you med or cover when you know where people are and have a better position. These two nutters decided buildings would be a good idea and both ran into them to hide. They died. Here's what I see when you pull up in your car outside a building and camp inside for a bit: https://xboxdvr.com/gamer/charlehpock/video/63767691

    We tested with vector when the old "weapons on the table at the spawn island" on Erangel existed. Definitely hitting at shallow depths. AWM is useless through water

    Horrendous

    Wow.... So much for level streaming optimisations! I remember when this used to happen before I got an SSD in a buggy/uaz. Then they added the Mirado, a car that does 140+ km/h, completely outpacing the streaming on slower drives...

    This thread again. Are people serious? UMP is the noobs weapon of choice because of its ease of use. That ease of use comes with a price... The gun fires slow, does moderate damage and has a tiny effective range. Yes it has low recoil especially with a lightweight but that's about where it begins and ends. ARs are just objectively much better at almost every task. There are two things you need to do to beat a UMP every single time: * Move * Recoil control your AR If you do those two things, the number of UMP guys killing you will be close to zero. The UMP is only effective up close and even then a vector is a better choice in most situations because it actually has a DPS advantage over the rifles. If you think the UMP is OP then you probably need to practice more with the rifles and practice better movement. You only need to shoot a UMP at a guy that's moving/weaving 100m away to see that it's pretty useless at range due to having such low muzzle velocity. Look how long it takes for the rounds to hit https://xboxdvr.com/gamer/charlehpock/video/65106780 Vs the M4 with more than double the velocity https://xboxdvr.com/gamer/charlehpock/video/65106785 The fact is, if you lead the UMP right you can hit people, but you've got to be lucky if someone is changing direction/weaving since chance means they will avoid your slow 9mm shots.
