Anyone played a good load of both PUBG and Fortnite and can give their opinion on which is better? I've sunk a buttload into Fortnite and although I really enjoy the game, if the continue to nerf the entire game it isn't going to be as much fun as it was when the game came out, because now the skill gap is basically non-existent if you have an SMG. Whilst that isn't fully the problem, my main concern is that the game doesn't feel as rewarding when you get a win or play well in recent times, and I feel with PUBG's updates they seem to be focusing around making the game a more pleasant experience and I'd much rather give that a bash if Fortnite continues to travel downhill forr the rest of this year.(even though I cannot play PUBG because I don't own it xD, I still wouldn't mind an opinion regardless, just so I have some form of a feel)

Both are great games in their own way.
I think for the more hardcore shooter fans, pubg will appeal more and for the light hearted fun players Fortnite will be better.
I personally prefer PUBG of Fortnite. The mechanics and aiming in Fortnite seem so simple and rudimentary to me

FIX PUBG

WHAT IS 'FIX PUBG'?

" FIX THE GAME."

This is a phrase that we’ve been hearing a lot lately. Bugs, performance problems,
and quality-of-life issues have been limiting PUBG's true potential, and you want it fixed.
So we think it's time to do something about it.

FIX PUBG" is a months-long campaign to deliver the changes and improvements that
you've been asking for. We've created a roadmap with specific details about our plans, and
we intend to update it as we go, checking things off as we deliver on our promises.
Check out the full details below.

Funny how they are now working so hard on this to fix it in the next three months when the game has been plagued with these issues since release. Rumor has it Ring Of Elysium will see a global release date in 3 months. Coincidence much? :p

Did anyone else get a 50-60FPS increase on Sanhok? I haven't updated anything that I know of (except the latest PUBG patch). It's not the FPS unlock, as I'm now getting an average of around 100FPS on that map now with a GTX 970.
Game still runs like shit for me. Only around 80FPS MAX with graphic settings maxed on a Galax SOC 1070

PLAYERUNKNOWN'S BATTLEGROUNDS :: PC 1.0 Update #20

Hey everyone,

Last week, we announced FIX PUBG, an initiative to tackle some of the game’s long-standing bugs and quality of life requests. Update 19 addressed a slew of those already and for Update 20, we’re adding a section to the patch notes to specifically cover FIX PUBG issues. These patch notes will show up in their normal sections as well.

As usual, these updates will be implemented to the test server first and will be applied to the live server at a later date. Here’s what’s coming to the test server today:
  • We’re implementing FIX PUBG related improvements and new content
  • Adding a new AR, the Beryl M762, to all maps for wider weapon diversity and strategy.
  • Adding a new Sanhok exclusive vehicle, the scooter!
    • Both the scooter and 2-seater motorbike can be found on Sanhok
  • Also we’re introducing more new functions such as TPP camera position setting and reporting system improvements.
  • Decreased the minimum required players for starting a custom match from 10 to 8
  • Please note there may be additional changes made before this patch comes to live servers
An update on the Tukshai: The Tukshai is an upcoming Sanhok exclusive three-wheeled vehicle which we'd originally planned to release in the month after Sanhok came to live servers. Due to higher priority development tasks and the extra fine tuning required to make driving experience of the three-wheeled Tukshai feel just right, it will now be released in September.

FIX PUBG Update Section

Quality of Life
  • [LOADING SCREEN] Added a key guide to the loading screen tips
  • [UI/UX #01] Targeted interactive objects are now more easily distinguishable by the highlighted outline

  • [KILL FEED DISPLAY #01] You can now adjust your killfeed display options
    • For war mode/observer screen, the amount is fixed to 5 lines
    • You can adjust the normal killfeed results to show 5 to a maximum 10 lines
  • [FIXED-PERSPECTIVE OPTION] Added TPP Aim Camera Position to options.
  • [TEAMMATE REPORTING] You can now report teammates.

  • [ITEM MESH] Fixed an issue where items were difficult to distinguish from the floor in the police station in El Azahar on Miramar.
  • [REPLAY #02] Fixed an issue in replays where a player appears to be in an unarmed state even though the character is armed with a weapon.
  • [REPLAY #03] Fixed the issue where a character sometimes vaults the opposite direction while you’re time-jumping through a replay.
  • [REPLAY #04] Fixed the issue where the bolt-action animation doesn't always occur during replays.

  • [CHARACTER MOVEMENT #04] Fixed the issue where a prone player is shown to be moving very fast while on a sloped area.
  • [SPECTATING] Fixed an issue where when spectating a teammate, a teammate's kill feed will be displayed in white instead of blue.
  • [GETTING STUCK #02] Fixed an issue where characters can sometimes get stuck between a wall and vehicle while exiting the passenger seat when the vehicle is touching a wall.
  • [LOOT EFFECTS] Fixed the issue where the looting sound and visual effects play, even though the item is not looted, if the character moves away while looting.
  • [BLOOD EFFECTS] Fixed an issue where the blood effect sometimes shows up randomly when moving in replay
  • [FUEL GAUGE] Fixed an issue where sometimes the fuel gauge of vehicles wasn't in sync with the visual display on the dashboard
