On Xbox there was at least a 40GB update every month, if not more often, and each update still had incredible bugs. It became unplayable for me, the lag spikes/rubber banding increased as time went on.

I played the mobile one and won 3 times in a row. I was surprised why ppl suck so bad.JmanGTA wrote: ↑ Caveat: in the last patch they added bots to regular games so they've basically destroyed that mode.
To avoid the bots you will have to play in Ranked mode, which is all heavily seasoned players that will tear you apart if you are new.
Basically the player-base is so small now that wait times to fill a game were like 10-20 minutes off-peak hours. Hard-core players stay because the other games are arcadey crap like Blackout and Warzone but the game is
pretty much a dead property.

Apex Legends, COD Warzone, Fornite are all way way better and free to play. I dont understand why anyone would play money to play PUBG. I dont how one of the original battle royals can still be so buggy after all these years.

It was probably right before server maintenance. It's usually every Tuesday evening.

Cod Warzone is a glaucoma simulator, no view distance, "filmic" grain effect makes everything look like undetailed garbage even with the option disabled in video settings. Everything is SUPER TACTICAL see ridiculous image. For the same type of gameplay and smooth mechanics Apex is superior

Exactly this. I think the number of cheaters is overstated, because many deaths at from the hands of a more skilled player, or even a lucky shot, seems implausible. I'd say I've only run into cheating a handful of times, but then again, I don't play it a ton (about 1000 hours in the two and a half years I've had it).turtleh wrote: ↑ I think a lot of hate still stems from the fact that PUBG is the most punishing of the crop, because if it's clunkiness, but the gunplay and victory is still the most rewarding. Warzone is loud, floaty, hitsscan at close range and is not punishing because you get to go to the gulag. Warzone still needs to be played with friends, good luck with scrub console leavers.

I quit playing PUBG maybe 2-3 months ago now and part of me still misses it, but I'm just glad I no longer have to deal with the stupid buggy mechanics. The number of times I would watch a deathcam only to see from their perspective I never fired my gun. This was the main reason I switched to warzone. I'll agree with you, the gunplay in pubg is significantly better and I miss it. But now when I shoot someone, it registers and even if they kill me, from their killcam I can see that I almost had them or missed horribly, but never that I just was standing still while they shot me. I'd love to see pubg make a comeback but even at 50% off I don't see this game being worth it. I can only dream that pubg will be built on something stable like the source2 engine and the netcode will be completely rebuilt to avoid the issues that ruin the game for me currently.SenatorMcCheese wrote: ↑ It was probably right before server maintenance.

I still play PUBG, and honestly, it's not as terrible as people say. Cheating isn't as rampant as it was a year or two ago. Having tried the other BRs (most recently Warzone), there's nothing quite like PUBG in terms of gunplay. I'd say, if you're even remotely interested, playing it for free to try it out isn't a bad idea. I definitely wouldn't pay full price to play it anymore though. Like others said, it's definitely on its way out, but I don't think it's dead yet. In random squads, you can still find a game pretty fast.
The inclusion of bots has driven a lot of hardcore players away, and it's certainly easier to get into, which, depending on your perspective, can be a good or bad thing. Good, because a casual player can actually make it past the first half of a game without dying a quick death, but bad because you don't learn from the repeated deaths.
