My Love/Hate Relationship With PUBG

Ah, PUBG.

PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds.

Battle Royale.

The video games which can be taking up on-line gaming by storm. PUBG is a kind of, and one of many first. A mod that became a stand alone sport. Nevertheless, there’s the query, is the sport good? Is it playable? Do the customers get pleasure from it? For my private opinion, we’ve got to return to the start.

The Starting

September 12, 2017. The day that I purchased PUBG, though it was nonetheless in early entry. I had seen some mates play, in addition to each streamer ever play it. I figured, why not? It was $30, which is not low-cost, however not horrible. From what I had heard, the developer was very lively in improvement. So I purchased in.

For some time, it was enjoyable. I had a gaggle of mates I’d play squads with and, being my first FPS on PC, I realized easy methods to play with a keyboard and mouse. There have been bugs, in fact, and hackers, but it surely’s an early entry sport, you count on that. Proper? Effectively, proper.

Issues seemed good. Updates had been coming in. Cash was being made. Everybody on the planet was trying ahead to what the sport would change into.

As we speak

Quick ahead to immediately, over a 12 months later.

There are nonetheless issues. A whole lot of issues.

It isn’t like the sport would not get up to date. They push out updates on a regular basis, even now, and shut down the servers twice every week for upkeep. It is simply… a battle of curiosity, possibly?

The builders are actually apprehensive about cash, or so it appears. Additionally, with the ocean of battle royale video games popping out, they’re apprehensive about staying related. The issue is, they are not actually serving to something.

The corporate appears to be extra about skins, maps, and weapons quite than fixing what they have already got. Each efficiency replace helps one thing, however breaks two or three extra issues. For instance, one replace left my buddies and I unable to even be part of a match. Not good.

And so, I am drained. It is enjoyable, however I am drained. You’ll have nights the place every thing is okay and you’ve got enjoyable. Then, you should have nights the place you get shot round corners or lose fights you clearly ought to’ve gained. The replay system remains to be so laggy you could’t even watch a replay and precisely see what occurred.

Truthfully, at the beginning of the night time, it is like a toss up whether or not or not the server has your again. If it would not, you lose a whole lot of firefights. If it does, you win these. It is fairly loopy, however occurs time and time once more.

Even with all the problems, and me getting offended, I nonetheless have over 200 hours within the sport. Why? As a result of it is enjoyable. It is a enjoyable sport, when it really works. The issue is whenever you push for it to be in eSports tournaments, then the whole world sees two gamers survive a grenade that exploded proper at their ft (yeah, that occurred).

It is an argument. As a result of when you submit about it, folks say it is your PC. All I can say is, I’ve performed sufficient to understand it is the sport, and never my PC. If I am unable to play a sport with a GTX 1080, then I do not wish to play that sport.
