Very tempted, but not sure how much of a community there will be on PC? Would prefer to play Blackout with KB and mouse.

That's also my biggest problem. Buying it mostly for Blackout (because it has local servers) and really hope enough people play the game. The beta had more than enough people, but that was free.

Well I couldn't even play the PC beta because the servers were constantly full. PS4 had lots of servers though.

If this could attract some of the PUBG crowd I think there would be quite a big community. Tough choice though.

I can't see people leaving pubg for Blackout.
Don't get me wrong the game is fun, and I enjoyed the little bit I got to play, but it is in no way a competitive experience.

I don't feel Blackout is any more or less competitive than any other BR really. None of them are competitive in the way that normal shooters are.

I think the biggest thing stopping people from switching from PUBG to Blackout is the price tag. After playing the Blackout beta, PUBG just feels really slow and clunky.

This is the first Call of Duty I've ever bought, mostly because of the local servers and I feel Blackout is pretty good.

I don't know how to respond without coming across as a complete wanker lol
COD is casual and PUBG isn't, that's the best of way of describing it.

My biggest gripe with the game was how shit the netcode was during the beta. Yes we had local servers but I instantly felt like something was off.
My first sniper shot, I watched the bullet travel through the players head without registering...Local player on a local server...


Then there are other issues, like balance. (Weapon balance/zombie weapons ect)
The broken armor (We just have to take their word that it'll be fixed)
Using meds while moving/underwater...
Time to kill is far too long (Could be due to the armor), but the above problem just makes it worse.
Reviving a downed team mate is insanely fast...So fast that it's almost impossible to get a flank going.

Activision is right up there with EA when it comes to greed and it's just a matter of time before they mess something up with paid for weapons/cosmetics.
Not to mention their love of releasing paid for maps, splitting the player base. Not sure if they'll do this for blackout but who knows.

I think a lot will change with blackout overtime.. If you remember very early days of PUBG things were not balanced at all, infact it barely even worked haha

Balance issues I'm not too much concerned about, as that will be fixed over time. Same with the netcode.

This is just my opinion but the game plays better for me than PUBG because of small things such as looting (which is quite faster in CoD) and vaulting (you can jump and vault over instead of running against the wall and then press vault to vault).

I'm also worried about the greed of Activision, cause P2W is quite a deal breaker for me.

For anyone still looking to buy, you can order from cdkeys for about R600. You can get a 3% discount code on their Facebook page (just use incognito and enter any email address).

What's competitive about pubg? All the bugs competing for your levels of patience?

so no single player campaign and not even a physical disk with an installer on it?
Least they could do is bundle a sentimental flash drive in there or something. Sheesh
