    Honestly, the amount of decent games that compete with it now that are just so much more optimized, make it less attractive. It still is the top game going by steams stats but the new up and comer games are really stealing its player base. ROE (Ring of Elysium) is gaining huge popularity right now, should maybe check that out instead.

    Connections error and wait time are insane :/ hopefully they patch something soon haha. The few games we had were awesome - def. noticeable drop in dodgy players. Just sucks wiring so long for a game

    I'd given up on the game until this patch was announced.

    Massive improvement. Not encountering any wait times and getting steady low ping servers which make the gameplay so much more enjoyable again.

    OC servers worked again for about a week, now they're munted again.

    It'd be nice if a game with similar "realism" was developed by a competent team to fill the gap

    There's that new callerdoody BR game. Not sure I want to associate myself with callerdoody though.

    PUBG Seemingly Coming to PS4 in December
    Suicide Squad's Joker and Harley Quinn to Join PUBG

    It seems like a whole lot of "too little, too late" here. Do a tie-in promotion with a movie released YEARS AGO? Port to the highest population platform outside of PC ages after all hype for the game has died?

    They did micro-transactions for the game whilst still in Early Access, a move which surely soured their reputation in the eyes of some potential customers - they wanted easy money now rather than playing the long game. They were doing these cheap monetisation tactics when their game was still very much not finished too. Prioritising monetisation methods over making your core product better is not a good look.

    They chased the Chinese dollar, again for easy money in the short term. When doing negatively impacted the experience for their existing playerbase they brushed off the criticism, literally calling their detractors racists.

    They took money from Microsoft for the console exclusivity rights, again prioritising easy money now over long term benefits. They launched onto Xbox in a highly shit state and it remained that way for months.

    How do they salvage this trainwreck? For starters I'd launch F2P onto PS4, but you know that they won't.

    Yeah it will be dead in the water if its not F2P, especially considering H1Z1 (which I think i better) is F2P and has a decent player base on PS4

    Just reinstalled this last night. Seems pretty dead in AUS and NZ now.

    I had a few games yesterday as well. No OCE servers anymore even on TPP. The new map is awesome though they did a really good job. Seems to be in a pretty good spot now though i didn't come across any of the issues from a few months ago.

    Definitely still getting OC games. It's just usually at peak Aus playing time generally. With holidays it seems to be even earlier too which is nice. TPP only sadly, otherwise there's a few custom servers that are OC running FPP that always seem to be populated.
    Love the new map.

    Yeah there's only TPP solo and squad servers that are OC, everything else is North America. I rather play FPP since there's less cheaters who play that.

    Have they made any big changes other than the map?

    Just weapons, maps and vehicles. That's it. Not enough to impress me after not playing it in over 8+ months. Will probably uninstall it again.

    My friends play PUBG and they say the problem exists. They were waiting nearly for 5-10 minutes a week ago and there was no waiting at all last spring.
    Should I advise them to play another game in this genre?

    I would have preferred no new maps, just keep one and improve it or change it like Fortnite has. Erangel is still the best.

    My interest in the game started waning as soon as Miramar came out. The more things they've added have just led to more problems. Reminds me of how good Rust was in legacy, then they just added, and added, and added useless crap.

    Fully agree. Bug fixes and stopping hackers should've been the top priorities and new maps/esports/loot crates a distant second.

    Yeah it seems as if they were near sighted with the cash cow, where as they could have made a killing over a longer period if they had dealt with the hackers and bugs. When PUBG was recently released, it was massive in the gaming media. Now it's Fortnite which every kid and their dog knows about.

    Is that still the case? A mate who still plays says his deaths are legit. I reinstalled it and the test server to try the new map. Test server would crash on start up so I went back to solely playing BFV.

    That's what all the Americans on Reddit are still saying, to avoid TPP and only play FPP.

    Yeah having multiple maps is part of the reason the game is unplayable in NZ. Not the only reason though. When does BFV have royale?

    An update a month or two ago when they implemented map selection and the feedback timer on estimated time broke the queue system for OC. For a while, despite cancelling and re-queuing multiple times it wouldn't find you a game in OC, even at peak times. That problem has since been fixed, but it caused many players to give up on OC queues.

    OC players now by default play on SEA, even though its laggier. Though at peak times you can still find TP squad games in OC. Though the queuing system still is bugged, where some queues seem to be 'stale' and never fill, so you have to cancel and requeue until you find one that works.. Xvideos Youporn Xhamster

    Good way to send the game down the toilet just when they are finally sorting out the framerate and other general glitches
    I think pubg died when they ping locked China out of OC.
