I wish they had like an in-game tutorial.

Can anyone break down how I should be playing this? What stuff should I be picking up, and then how should I proceed?

Only thing that works for me is get a decent gun, get to the center of the map, and just wait. It's extremely boring though. I try anything else, and just get wrecked.

Can't remember the last time I got kicked on xbox, been very stable lately on EU. Barely any issues with rendering either, even in the hot spots.

They've already made pretty massive tick rate improvements, especially in early game. But you can't fix one of the major PUBG problems, desync, via tick rate. Bad tick rate can make it worse, but the way PUBG is designed, if a dude has 300ms ping and you have 50, then you'll have moved on your side but he won't have seen you move yet. This is how people get shot while behind cover.

It goes the other way too though - if you have low ping and you round a corner you see your opponent before he sees you.

I think, but can't verify, that a lot of the problem is that the client side verifies hits. That's not bad when both players pings are low, but it's bad when one player has high ping. I think it's the source of (some of) the cheats too.

Frankly, I am not that enthused by the "fix pubg" campaign. Most of the things they propose to fix have been broken for 1 year or more, and everyone knew they were broken already. They didn't bother for the last year, I think this is some last gasp lip service, frankly.

I love the game, I play it almost daily, but it has many many problems.

Ring of Elysium comes to the US this september or october I think, that should be interesting.

I learned to play by playing squad games with people with more experience. That is a really good way if you know any folks. I did not read this whole thread - do the people in this thread play together at all? Is there a 2+2 steam group or anything?

There's a 2p2 steam group but it's not just for pubg. I added a bunch of people off it a long time ago.

Re: Playerunknown Battlegrounds
