Oceanic Servers Dead??
I'm from Australia, and most times it's impossible to get a Solo, Duo or Squad game, anyone else having this issue.
I know with the release of other Battle Royales that are hitting goals the PUBG should have ages ago will be taking players away, but I didn't expect it to die haha.
Probably wouldn't be a problem if PUBG implemented Lobbies starting with only 1 player instead of waiting for 40 simultaneous players before opening the Lobby, people get discouraged by 30 minute wait timers.
if you're experiencing framerate issues on Xbox One X, Bluehole is currently working on that issue
From what I've experienced, things have gotten better on the X but Bluehole still has their work cut out for them in terms of optimisation. I'm glad that Bluehole is actually trying to keep up with PUBG on the Xbox platform. If PUBG wants to beat out Black Ops 4, Bluehole has to continue to improve the QOL of PUBG.
It Looks Like the PS4 Community is Finally Going to be Getting Some PUBG Action-No Release Date Yet
Freakin finally, the PS4 community is going to be getting some of that PUBG action. So here's the deal, according to Eurogamer & the Verge, the South Korean Game Rating Board rated PUBG for the PS4. Why would a game rating board rate a game that doesn't exist? As of right now, the link leading to the PS4 version of PUBG is no longer up which gives credence to the idea that this a real thing.
On a side note, I honestly hate the whole concept of timed exclusives because it hurts the gaming community as a whole. If a game is supposed to be a multiplatform game, then it should be released as such. I get the idea of actual exclusives being tied to one platform. It's ridiculous that PS4 community hasn't gotten PUBG yet. PUBG is on every single freakin phone imaginable, but not on the more powerful PS4. Yeah yeah, I know MS has a timed exclusivity deal for the game.
I hope this rumour is true!

Dr DisRespect Needs to Get Good - He Gets Owned & Gets Upset
In other news, Dr DisRespect gets upset again over getting pawned in a game. this time it was PUBG. His complaints were followed by him finishing up playing the Black Ops 4 beta, so I guess he feels that PUBG has to play like Black Ops 4. That's honestly silly because PUBG is PUBG, so get used it. There are two videos of him getting pissed. In one video he got pissed because he was killed while managing his inventory. Common man, when you manage your inventory you risk getting shot. It is what it is lol. His other blow up moment was of him getting killed by on another player as he rounded a corner... Once again it is what it is. Dr DisRespect is being ridiculous...
pubg.sh - Review your gameplay in 2D
So I came across this little gem whilst scrolling though old posts. I’ve used it to have a look at some of my recent game play and try to understand why things weren’t going my way!!!
This page is very simple to use. All you have to do is select your platform, region, input your GT and you’re all set.
Give it a crack and let me know what you think?
Hope I don't get banned 🤣
Long story short, some friends and i got pulled into the biggest gaming lobby we had ever seen.
We do not engage in these cheating like behaviors to win or ruin people's experience in the game. This was a collective effort to not use guns and abide by the rules of the man leading the group.
I think at some point we got over 25 people in the same lobby running around naked and engaging in demolition derby. As more and more people streamed, more people kept coming and misbehaving; using guns armour etc and making this already risky idea much more of a problem and ruining the game for others.
Enjoy my awful video :)
THIS IS NOT OKAY
First "Swatting" and now this. Popular PUBG streamer Dr. Disrespect had his house SHOT AT because somebody wanted to get their 5 seconds of fame on his stream. This is absolutely disgusting and it's things like this that give gamers and streamers a bad reputation. I'm APPALLED. They literally shot at his daughter's window...
I really hope they catch whoever did this. The police need to crack down on the people who are exploiting streamers and hurting people just to get a reaction, and we as gamers have to show that we WILL NOT TOLERATE this type of trash in our community. Sorry if I'm getting worked up, but this shit makes me sick to my stomach.

The latest is the pilot crate, which includes: SIX PILOT ITEMS, INCLUDING GOLDEN AVIATOR GLASSES, B-3 BOMBER JACKET, AND PURPLE ACE PARACHUTE SKIN!

PUBG Drops Below a Million Daily Players
After the ridiculously high highs PUBG set last year, it’s no surprise to see their player numbers dropping off to more reasonable levels. For the first time in over a year, yesterday marked a day where PUBG did not exceed one million daily players. PUBG is still the most popular game on Steam and the predominant ‘realistic’ battle royale game, but with Black Ops 4 and Battlefield 5 right around the corner PUBG’s downswing may be just beginning.

What weapon would you rather run with on SANHOK........ Any why?
For me it’s the QBZ 🙌🏻
Now I’ve played hours and hours using the M4, I’ve stuck every attachment on it and tricked it out to the nines. Now SANHOK has landed on Xbox my head has been turned by the QBZ, it fits right into my playing comfortably and IMO lookS dead smart 🤙🏻
What your opinion on using both the M416 and QBZ95?
Good Guy PUBG Corporation Fixes The Headhunter Event Reward Glitch - Credit is Due
Originally, I wasn't the biggest PUBG fan and the same goes for Fortnite (both games have their pros and cons), but I gotta give PUBG Corporation credit for stepping up and fixing an event glitch. How many of us have completed online events to either get nothing (that's happened to me in Destiny 2 PC) or get the wrong item. At least for me, it happens a lot. For those who don't play PUBG on the Xbox One/X, Xbox had an exclusive event by the name of "Headhunter," which required the Xbox user base to make 4 million headshots in order to get the rewards.
For some reason or another, after the Xbox community reached the 4 millionth headshot many players received either an incorrect locked crate or a Raider crate. i don't know about you, but that would piss me off if that happened to me. Good on PUBG Corp. for getting those who were affected the right rewards and extra prize for the troubles (Punk Glasses). I wish that more game devs did this at the console level. We normally see these kinds of restitution in mobile games. @game devs, learn from PUBG Corp and reward your communities for their loyalty to your games.
PUBG, as a game, has truly come a long way from being an insanely buggy mess (love the funny physics and glitches) to being a game that is getting ready to be ready for Pro-level play (maybe it's already there). Y'all should be proud!
POPULAR What’s more satisfying, The Pan “Dong” or Grenade kill??
Which gives you a more satisfying feeling, the “Dong” of the Pan as you swipe it across someone’s head or that lucky Grenade kill that kills an unexpected enemy??
For me it’s the “Dong” of that pan 🙌🏻 The Chase is on..... I’m coming for you Pan in hand 💪🏻
I had one game where I knew someone was in a house. I decided to take off all my kit, clothes and all, except for one smoke. The smoke entered the top floor though a window, in turn I rushed though the front door, up the stairs......”Dong”!
No one likes to be killed by the naked Pan killer 🤙🏻
What is your best experience of either a Pan kill or Grenade kill??
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

See you guys out on field.
