The Man Who Started It All
Great interview with the one and only PlayerUnknown that talks about his conception of PUBG. To think that Brendan just wanted to play a game he would want to play is how it all started. A genre to eclipse all those before it and for what looks like a long time in the future. I wish I had the drive and dedication he has to make something so impactful.
PUBG🥔 Is NOT Good Enough to be an eSport - There I Said It
I know that I'm going to get some serious hate for saying that PUBG is not good enough to be an eSport. I mean is PUBG even deserving of being an eSport given it has terrible in game physics and it looks like a potato on top of looking like a game that is straight from the Unreal store. Hell Fortnite is closer to being an eSport in its current state.
Even with Fortnite's on going rounds of buffing and debuffing, it plays way better. Also it has way more game modes and cool events to engage in (like the Rocket Launch for example or even the Marvel cross-over as another example). Imagine having specific eSports going to mix up pro level tournaments. You can't get these kind of things with PUBG's cheater-filled matches.
Oh I also forgot to mention that the game runs terribly. What kind of game that has so many technical issues being pushed by its user base to become an eSport. Even the developers admit that their game isn't ready to be an eSport. Do people even still play this game? Also PUBG Corporation can jump off a cliff for pursuing a spurious law suite, that were later dropped, against Epic in South Korea for copyright/trademark violations.
Can't believe there's ANOTHER huge update already! Who else is hyped for the addition of the 3x and 6x scopes!? Not to mention the SLR Sniper Rifle, War mode, new emotes, and even a portable closet!

How do you feel about map-exclusive guns?
I like the way that each map has unique vehicles because of the way that vehicles work with the map's environment. Guns on the other hand don't do anything aesthetically, but could be more advantageous on one map than another.
How do you feel about map-exclusive guns?
The next PUBG xbox update brought the new SLR , the sports car on miramar, the gun balance changes that PC got a little while back, The new attachments (lightweight grip, thumb grip, etc.), and the new sights (3x scope and 6x scope), and a ton of other changes.
This update is very good and will bring the game more up to date with the PC version in time for when Sanhok should come out in August.

Landing Faster on Sanhok
Been playing a lots of Sanhok on PUBG and up until yesterday I had no idea how people were landing so fast. I'd jump out early and float at around 195+ km/h and near the tail end get to 230+. This still wasn't enough as I saw some players already on the ground 5 seconds after I had deployed my chute. Then I found this video from WackyJacky
According to this video, you need to "wave dive" to get down faster. He says Sanhok's smaller size changes how early a player should eject too. I laughed at the paper ruler, but I think I might try that...
Are there any other tricks you guys know about the Sanhok map?
PUBG's New Map Sanhok, Event Pass, and QoL Improvements
Sanhok will go live soon, June 22nd to be exact, and with it some much needed quality of life improvements. Also a Batt- umm Event Pass is set to launch in tandem.
I'm really digging the concept of Sanhok's smaller map size. I really enjoyed playing War mode as it helped me get better at shooting and choosing engagements. Sure as hell beats having to try and drop in to School or Military Base to get that practice in.
Feels like this is a good hybrid of War and the Battle Royale mode that started it all. Which leads into one of QoL changes I'm most excited about. Sanhok will be separated and designated as "Mini Royale" and players can now choose if they want to hop into a "Battle Royale" (Erangel and Miramar) or "Mini Royale," (Sanhok).
I guess PUBG Corp learned from the previous fiasco of players deleting the Miramar files in order to avoid playing on the map.
Sanhok will also introduce a new map exclusive gun, the assault rifle QBZ95.
It utilizes 5.56mm ammo and will replace the SCAR-L.
Due to Sanhok's smaller nature, the devs have decided to implement a new adaptive bluezone. Rather than just a fixed time and size, it will spawn the appropriate bluezone by checking the current player count and adjust accordingly. However this ends up playing out I wish this means more aggressive plays and less deaths to the circle.
In an interesting move by PUBG Corp, they've decided to make cosmetics much more accessible. There's a catch though, it'll cost you $10. It's very similar to Fortnite's Battle Pass and the purpose is to incentivise playing more PUBG.
The Event Pass will be a limited-time add on that lasts 4 weeks and adds quests/missions to level up your account. So... play the game, level up, and reap the rewards! Sounds simple enough, and I especially like the part that progress when playing the game without purchasing the Event Pass still counts. If you want to purchase the Event Pass at a later date then you get unlock everything you've earned thus far. The items gained through the Event Pass will not be marketable though, so keep that in mind.
I'm excited about these new changes and looking to fill my tummy with some Chicken Din Dins

Pubg players take note of issue
AKM is the main issui of the AR as it is too power ful 1 shot in head you are dead with level two helmet if level 3 vast 6 shots of AKM persons dead
AKM have to be fixed in my opinion
PUBG mobile is pubg on phone but it has not the full version as. There are no gun skins no 3rd and final map no dp shop no full parachute skins no full guns e.g DLR no full. Boast on the ground.( Could the owner of moot tell my opinion of pubg mobile and try adding it to moblie)
Some say grenade is too weak so they decided too write a article too show why grenades sucks so they want them to increase the rate of damage and something call down time which I think will be a good thing to have.
Best regards there have been things that PEAPLE hate in pubg and to remove or fix the issues with feed back but they say the m24 is not suitable for being in cartels as a you tuber says it is a Kar98k with a mag will if that is truth they would have done it a long time ago for more info leave a like in the deception to have more issues in pubg could be fix or your opinion to the following(leave a comment) below if you do like this like it
Pls moot hope you report this
The spot of the drops.
Shooting Range or Shelter.
Shooting Range - Always has decent loot, and for some reason you can always walk away with about 240 rounds of 5.56 even if you find no 5.56 AR. Decent gunfights sometimes. Not at all a tedious location to loot. No rooms to go in and out of. Everything is in the open. Straight shot right over to Severny, then down to Rohzok.
Shelter - Always interesting. Usually good loot. Found 3 SKSs in a single room on multiple occasions. Close-quarters indoor combat as well as long hallway shootouts. Usually a vehicle will spawn within very short running distance.
