That's a good idea to land at high traffic areas just for practice. So far I've just been landing at small groups of buildings that are somewhat near to cities, but far enough away that there's no traffic. I've been making it to the top 30 every time and top 10 a few times, and by then I'm playing with the experienced guys.

I got down to final 4 last night. **** gets intense. I haven't been on pins and needles in a game like that.

Are we friends on steam? add me if not. steam id- hi_im_sean

We can just do practice rounds if you want. git good.

I made a bad habit, really from now knowing any better, for the first 3 or 4 months by doing exactly what you do. Small compounds outside the hot zones, play loot master 5000 for 20 minutes, get into the top 10-20 and fire 2 bullets and die. I play squads mostly, with much more experienced players, and I wasn't learning anything. I should have been playing solos or duos and dropping into hot zones from the start. Id be way ahead right now if I did. Ive improved a ton in the last few weeks. Got a 50 yard choked pump shotgun headshot last night lol. bet that guy was pissed. Could have also just been RNG being nice to me though.

edit- yea pins and needles. this is why this game is so addicting. It gets my adrenaline going, for real, i get shaky lol. But getting a win after that last intense few minutes is glorious.

Still able to glitch jump out of unbroken windows for months and wants a sandbox mode. Lmao.

If they just start with making the game feel less clunky that would be a huge start.

Well, that's with the assumption that they actually finish development. I know, I know. For ***** sake they are pushing vaulting in the test server, but you can still jump through windows.

I mean. It's fun, but if I want to have an enjoyable experience I'll play a game made by professional developers. It is what it is, an indie game made by some regular guys.

It's my fault for thinking they would reinvest some of their millions back into the game.

Waiting for the clunky feel to go away, hoping the vaulting clears some of this up.

Been playing Doom II multiplayer as of late, some Toxikk too.

Finally got a real gaming rig up and running. Ryzen 5, 16GB 3200Hz, and a GTX 1070. It's a little nicer playing PUBg at ultra settings on 1080p at 80 fps, rather than 20 fps on 720p ultra low settings. Just need a headset and some more practice and I'll start figuring out the whole team thing.

Not bad. Did you build it or buy it?

Also for a headset, the HyperX Cloud Core's from Gamestop are reasonably priced ($60-$70) and sound great. I run them thru an old Creative X-Fi sound card (ebay $30-$50) and it's amazing the advantage you can get from high quality audio. My chicken dinner ratio went up considerably after I started using this setup. Being able to more accurately hear what's coming, especially around corners helps a ton.

I built it, first time doing anything inside a case other than pushing in more RAM, definitely a good learning experience! Here's the build list: https://pcpartpicker.com/list/HDv6TH

I'll check those out. I watched a few videos on detecting gun fire, but it didn't help at all with monitor speakers. I think some nice headphones would definitely help.

Good deal man. PCpartpicker is the way to go. What did you end up spending on the GPU? The last few I bought were used, damn things are so expensive new... Ended up with a 1080Ti for about $500 out of pocket, took some trading and cash but I'm glad I made it happen.

And for headphones vs speakers, I go headphones hands down. I mean having both is ideal for different purposes, but for PUBG it seems like having headphones helps a ton. Not just for gunfire direction, but hearing footsteps or even enemy reloading. It's really fun to pinpoint where someone is hiding when they think they have the upper hand, then they end up with a grenade in their lap.

I got it for $320, Gigabyte Gaming G1 1070. It's got about a year and a half left on warranty. At first I was thinking of going with a new 1060 or RX580, but I think it was worth going used for the 1070.

Oh ok I see now, $320 you manually put that in. $455 new. I have the gigabyte Aorus 1080Ti, been working great so far. Don't forget to download the software for it, you can control fan operation and overclock it too.

Yep! Got both the CPU and GPU overclocked already. I was a little nervous about cooling with OC, but everything was running in the 60C range.

I guess I need to look into this. Those plugged into onboard mobo sound should suffice no?

FWIW im running ~60fps on 1080 res, with anti-aliasing on ultra, and most everything else on high, with a $130 1050ti and a 5 year old i5.


Anyone else home all day today and going to play?

Wish I was home playin!!!

Anyway, the onboard sound just seems bleh to me. I just sold this yesterday : https://www.ebay.com/itm/23256963545...84.m1559.l2649 . Even that made a huge difference in sound quality, it was night and day. I got my brother this: https://www.ebay.com/itm/Creative-La...72.m2749.l2649 for Christmas, he's got a decent pair of Sennheiser headphones but no sound card. Even tho it's an older card, they still give a huge increase in audio quality. I don't think I'll ever go back to onboard audio again lol.

Onboard audio with a desktop DAC or tube amp is the way I go... Some of these good expensive motherboards have some pretty serious onboard sound.

Never really thought about that rout for gaming, and I've never really had a high end mobo-mostly mid grade. My other brother composes music and has a desktop DAC, music sounds amazing but I think it's kinda overkill for games, especially for that kinda money.

Yeah I bought my "audio" setup for listening to music. I think it's transferred to gaming nicely.
My headphones don't have a mic, so I just use a stand mic.

Edit*

When you get headphones and mic download discord. We've all got channels you can join when / if you play with us. It's a lot better and easier than the ingame chat.
