    It's a great game, been playing this non stop for the past 2 weeks since i got it! Occasionally get on ghost recon wildlands when i get frustrated with getting killed when i JUST get into the zone after legging it for like 15 mins... LOL

    It's a bit silly but I'm too used to 100fps+ @ 1440P Uptra on all my games, some hit max my display refresh rate. It appears that this will do about 60-70fps average with 50s as lows and 70s high. Would love for this go go up another 20fps if possible.

    Let's hope so but we'll see. I suppose it's still early days and in alpha stage. I certainly hope this isn't one of those games that is forever alpha. But fair enough:

    Mine runs @ 90fps @ 4k, with everything on low except for view distance and textures which are ultra and high, and screen scale @ 90.

    It's not about the pretty, it's about fluid, and removing all the shit so that you can see people moving! ;)

    It's been about both for me :D

    Didn't they patch that, where people turned a setting low so that they can't hide behind bushes?

    Next patch will alter foliage, so that the same amount is displayed regardless of the quality setting. This will mean hiding in grass will become a *lot* more popular...

    Ah fair enough. I just a YT video it looks like recommended settings are Ultra everything while keeping shadows and foliage very low. Gives you a bit of fps boost, makes the game look pretty and washed out, while still being equally competitive against other players.

    Do that @ 4k and then come back to me saying you get an fps boost LOL!

    AA is turned off for me as @ 4k don't need it. Post processing does make it look pretty but can tank about 20fps. Shadows are the same really, so max i would recommend them is @ medium to get the atmosphere, but really.... it's not necessary.

    Foliage is definitely not necessary IMHO, and textures i like on high as it gives you better definition with long range sniping. view distance well, yeah definitely ultra. It may be completely different in 1080p but yeah 4k you can't have anything past medium without massive hits to fps.

    played my first 4 games or so, isnt saving my statistics in game which is annoying, 1 games i was half way through and i timed out which is bs, never have issues with any other games, few games i died off the bat.

    got to 20th one game, just got to 30th but i revealed myself too early. even when im hidden some people can snipe from distances which my weapon doesnt seem to be able to zoom/scope to.

    have tried a few weapons and enjoyed the general experience. think ill be putting in a bit more time into this game i think. certainly buggy but also fun.

    sometimes its a bit slow going but then again everyones probably in the same boat camping and waiting for the bubble to get smaller.

    might have to watch some vids, had bandages yesterday but they couldnt be used :( only played solo and in oceanic server, seems to default to the asian server every game
