PUBG is officially my most played game on Steam, followed distantly by Red Orchestra 2.. Nekosan and I played a few rounds on the NA Duo First Person server last night and got repeatedly smashed - house to house fighting is amazing in first person though with none of the looking around corners shit.

The downside is that if you get into a firefight in a forest, or while prone in a wheat field, you're cactus because you can't see without exposing yourself - it's made tactical withdrawal's an important move when the situation doesn't suit you.

Will be interesting to see when/if the 1st person servers come to Oceania... Hopefully soonish...
The peaking around corners from 3rd person is bullshit.

We haven't played a game on the OC servers in weeks.. we play on AS instead, they seem to run a hell of a lot better - didn't notice much in the way of lag on the NA servers either but the shooting is slightly different so will need to get used to that.

At the moment first person servers are limited to EU and NA (thank you Mini), and limited to solo/duo - as soon as they add squad I very much doubt I'll ever play in third person mode again.

I played some of this on the weekend with Pade and his bro. We were terrible. That is all for now.

Don't worry, I'm still terrible...
Also happy to have a game with others if I am around, I'm usually on discord of some description.

Also everyone should watch the PUBG OCE tournament currently being run. I'm part of the last placed team (Roll the Dice) in the Hi-Top division running on Wednesdays. (Twitch channel to watch here)

Had the worst luck with my squad the other night, 4 games in a row where we'd land and just not find any weapon sights and would just get ambushed or be outgunned in general

1 game I got knocked down but they didn't finish me off. I crawled my bleeding to death ass straight to them and was standing right next to them the rest of my squad could easily spot them and that was the one time we killed a squad. I bled out before my squad could get me up but they didn't last much longer

The one thing that seems to get me killed more often than not is the inability to find optics, and ending up in gunfights with people with optics.

We just need to stop shooting at things we can't hit brah, only hits count:





We don't disengage nearly as much as we should IMO.

Been doing well lately. Not quite chicken dinner, but top 5 frequently.

I wish they'd fix grenades, they don't land kills anywhere near as often as they should.

yeah I only ever use them to play mind games and try and drive people out of cover, haven't had a grenade kill in forever.

Yep, even when its incredibly close and there is zero cover, they're pretty pointless.

Oi settle down.. show him the cool one where YOU crashed the car while I was AFK and I ganked those guys trying to kill you because they didn't know I was there.

In other news, cheating is getting worse IMO.. tonight got taken out by a guy at 250m with a VSS, fired about 7 shots in a second and every one hit.

I just went through everything and i cant find it.... gay.



Long story short: Disco went to pee and i rolled oue car down a hill onto its roof, moved to cover and got engaged by these 2 guys as he came back so he just waited in the car until they walked past him to take cover from my fire and fooking rolled the two of them in the back. Was spectacular. :lol:

Yeah I'm pretty sure we had some speed hackers last night for a game. We were first to land at this warehouse next to powerplant and there was nothing in there at all then some guy appears out of nowhere and murders us all

Gotta be careful with that, you cant always see chutes so just because you landed alone doesnt mean you are. Best bet is to use your ears because you still hear the furling sound. That said, I've also landed on places with 2 buildings, i go into one and disco the other and suddenly we're engaged by people with gear from....?

I find it interesting that the game allows unrealistic amounts of fire input, apparently you can fire 16 rounds from the m16 in 1 second without cheating (assuming you have crazy finger speed). At that rate it pretty much circumvents recoil.

I'm guessing you could macro that to a keyboard somehow.

Think I'm a jinx now, couple of mates were each playing solo last night each had 2 top 5 finishes during the afternoon/evening, I jumped on and we jump onto discord and squad up, we didn't get get anywhere close to top 10.
