PUBG Mobile......
Tue Jul 24, 2018 7:20 pm
  • Holy Crap, I hate video games, and PUBG is a perfect example why.

    Really, I don’t play many games, and I don’t own a game machine.

    But.......


    A bunch of the Fire Fighters at my station play PUBG, and they talked me into loading it up on my tablet.

    End of story, I’m hooked.
    Hopefully it wears off fast, I’m wasting too much time.

    Any of y’all play PUBG mobile?

  • Nope, but I got pretty addicted to the real thing (PC version) for a good half-year or so. Got ranked pretty highly, too; it's a lot of fun.

    I have amazing instincts.

    You are the reason I called my thing a “tablet”.

    Funny huh?

  • [Rant]

    It's crazy to me that PUBG Mobile has improved so much in such little time and PUBG PC/Xbox has barely made any improvement to the core mechanics of the game. Complete failure to improve their networking and general graphical optimizations (rendering, weapon pop-in, frame rate) as well as failing to deliver any quality content. New maps don't get me excited when the gameplay is still plagued by year+ old bugs, terrible server performance and deteriorating frame rates.

    PUBG Mobile has been impressive since it launched. I know it's not being developed by PUBG Corp./Bluehole (which is why it isn't a half year old pile of white crap), but Mobile has had better game modes (wow there's actually a firing range so players can practice with different weapons outside of a game, PC players have only been asking for that since the game was created), better performance and more QOL improvements than PC/Xbox will probably ever see at this point.

    PUBG PC/Xbox will die a slow death over the next year until other BR games/modes have had time to iron out the kinks and offer better, more skill based and consistent gameplay. Oh yeah, and there's Fortnite. Heard that game's doing pretty well.

  • Performance improved remarkably between the tail end of beta and the first month or two of full release, and it's still fine. Stop whining,

  • I think it’s great that you can change settings to match/meet the performance of the particular device you are using.

    I have the latest “tablet” and an “x” so I have zero issues but a couple of the guys I know are using much older devices. They just change settings and have almost flawless, very smooth gameplay.

    I have no clue how it is on PC or console but it’s an awesome game for a mobile device.

    On PC, you can also change settings to suit your performance needs. Maybe you should invest in a PC. If you take all the money you were going to spend on an airplane and build a PC, you could have a pretty kickass machine that might even be able to run Crisis 3 @ 60fps on 1080p

    I’m not a “gamer”, and I have a couple of computers that meet my needs. If either of those things change, I’ll look into something with more power.

    Don’t mess with my airplane dreams.

    I can help you spec out the best bang for your buck for a gaming computer if you decide you want to check out what's arrogantly and accurately referred to as "PC Master Race"; moving to the ultimate gaming platform. :)

    You’ll be the first guy I “hit up”if I ever head that direction.

    Which was back in January? I definitely enjoyed the performance boost then, but it's gotten worse since "full release."

    Take a look on reddit, steam forums, etc. Tons of people have had deteriorating performance and it was so bad that PUBG Corp. had to address it with the community... of which pretty much nothing has happened to improve this problem months later. It's not just whining. It's being fed up with a product/company that have sat on their laurels since hitting the jackpot and doing virtually nothing to improve the gaming experience.

    Or are you one of the folks that was dying for more skins and shitty tournaments?

  • I don't care about the skins or tournaments. A minor drop in performance puts it nothing close to where it was throughout beta. Just sayin'.

    I'm not defending Bluehole, I think they need to up their game; metaphorically and literally. I also enjoy giving you $hit. ;)

  • I downloaded it, played it once. Picked up an Uzi or a Mack 10 or Draco or something like that, and then hid in a shack for a couple minutes till this chick came snooping. Sprayed her in her face, took all her gear, and then stole a motorcycle and drove around till time ran out. Got like 25th or something. Never played it again. Pretty fun though.
