I wouldn't say "full" of the Chinese horde, but you still get at least a few a game. I mostly play in NA evenings, it might be worse during the day.

Was AFK when a game started in a squad, so I landed near the end of the flight path in the middle of nowhere. Didnít see any cars within the render range and started running to some compound. I hear a bike driving and hide by a rock, he drives just past the rock and stops. Since I have no weapon I just climb in. Itís a Chinese guy so I start talking to him in my broken Chinese. He was pretty happy that I spoke some Chinese and eventually let me off somewhere but not before telling me how much he loves Americans or something. Twitch recorded it so maybe Iíll post a clip of it when I have time to cut it.

But seriously, we need a region lock.

i can't tell if it's because they turned matchmaking on for real, or all the new players, but i'm finally being matched with people as potato as i am. one firefight last night lasted a full 30 seconds with both of us emptying clips and managing to reload and continue firing while out in the open, all while a third guy took potshots at us and missed nearly all of them. i'm finally home

Maybe It's because the Aussie server is 75% Chinese players with strings of numbers and letters as names

The replay system is very revealing. I thought we got just got outshot in a bad situation and then the replay a guy cruises up and aims directly at my duo partner through red smoke, tracks through tree branches and keeps snapping on to him through the tree trunk as he's trying to aim somewhere else. Not that you can do a useless report at this stage.

Range

Range is what screws me up - is there no good way besides manually measuring on the map to get a distance? (I was even thinking of taking a transparency sheet and trying to make a little thing I could tape on the side of my monitor that I could use to quickly determine range.)

I usually ballpark a range eg 50 meters, 100 meteres, 300 meters. You can just use close/far. Close is just any range that needs immediate attention

matchmaking is almost certainly enabled in some capacity for a while but it gets hosed with a lot which is probably why they've never had a big announcement about it.

I seem to be getting matched against players I feel are a fair level for me so if it's not working then it could just be the format is conductive for fair play?

I honestly think its just the influx of new players getting the game for Christmas. I suck rear end but yesterday I got a game where I had 8 kills and finished #2, people were coming into my field of view without noticing me. I didn't get lucky with weapons so I was using a Uzi, in the middle of nowhere in a field, at this point I already killed 3 guys I think. I was thinking to myself that it sucked that none of these guys had any weapons, at this exact time a guy loaded to the brim literally ran in front of me. A little later, a guy was running towards me BACKWARDS, at first I thought it was a bug or lagged player.

I loved the way my squad did the push to the final zone last night, and I did record it. I obviously hosed up when I should've helped my buddy up, but disregarding that, it was a pretty hectic yet coordinated push to the zone and a chicken dinner. If only the total action bits are your deal, at 12:30 starts the last rush outside from a shack and shooting the remaining dudes.

I cannot understand why anyone would every play TPP when FPP exists. Please, enlighten me.

I don't know why this so hard for you to wrap your head around. Some people prefer the extra aspect of the game of being in 3rd Person, enjoy it being easier to spot enemies, might even like the minigame of being better at peeking corners,etc. Or its just more comfortable to play in 3rd especially with the jankiness of the cars. I use a combo of both, with going into FPP and ADS when I have a decent rifle and know where my bogey is. Otherwise just walking around the game is much more fun in 3rd.

In one of the latest interviews PUBG gave about the hacking they implored people to record a fishy killcam and send it in to them in a post on their forums. Their spokesperson said something like "You have to show us on our forums, how else would we find out about it?" Well, maybe you shouldnt have a pseudo fake report button that does basically nothing?

I can play FPP on Erangel, but on Miramar it's sort of an absolute hell when in vehicles. The viewpoint over terrain bumps around enough that it's a bit sickening (and I don't usually get motion sickness in games at all). It's even more evident when you use the motorcycle or the buggy.

Similarly it's why shooting from vehicles is absolute dogshit. Shotguns are the order of the day there.

I'm proud that I ran into the first person I'm pretty sure was cheating. I'm leaving a house near the end of the game. I open the door, hold off a second, and then step out. About 2 seconds later, I get drilled with a headshot from an AKM.
I hit the replay and it shows a guy about 100m away who is hiding behind a car. He is looking away from the house I'm in, but is spinning his camera about. Then his view shifts, he aims down his scope turns directly at me and nails me. He can't actually see me, since there is grass in the way, but still nails 2 consecutive headshots.

There was one game I had in FPP where a dude with an SKS kept scoping into the sky before locking onto my head. I don't know if it was a rare FPP cheater or just replay weirdness though.

Replays are janky as hell, a lot of my deaths shows the dude looking at and shooting into the ground. It's probably better to focus on general positioning and line of sight to spot cheaters. But @ having to report another million cheaters through their forums.

The only thing a kill cam gives you reliably is distance. Itís so off, the rest doesnít matter. But, at least with distance you can tell if a double headshot was viable or not. You should still be checking things like how damaged your armor or helmet was while crawling to see if every hit was in the same exact place or not.

I just found the DP-28 in game, after originally thinking it was just a crate weapon only.. and holy jesus gently caress that gun is an absolute terror. I managed to destroy someone from upstairs, through stair railing, as well as window bars. It still managed to do enough damage to put him, then his teammate, down, with maybe a little more than half a drum.

And then did the same, managed to knock someone at 50ish yards. Unfortunately that guy's buddy kept his head and managed to get me with a Scar before I could turn it on him.

I'm more worried about bot-level Christmas Noobs than I am cheaters, after this play:
Full team killed solo in 15 seconds, after having the drop on me: https://gfycat.com/DisastrousActiveBushbaby
My favorite parts are how I only took a single shot, had no vest, and kept firing at the last guy while following his body to the ground.


^^^ I totally expected the DP to be garbage, then I found one while dropping Georgopol crates and got a few kills with it, was impressed. Recoil is heavy and the irons aren't great though.

Easiest thing to spot, besides the view lock "snapping" between one enemy and another, especially if they are lazy and leave on 100% headshots. You can look at the trail of bullet holes, if they have a recoil script , it will be perfectly straight in a line, same level as both players heads if they are both on the first floor or the earth.
