    Being better than pubg isn't a milestone. Literally the only thing that gave pubg any life was novelty and timing.

    Making a clone with slight improvements still doesn't put it in the "game worth playing" category. Especially not without local servers.

    Well I managed to enjoy it in any case, I am not sure what I am doing but I gave it a go.

    Did I mention it is free?

    Better than PUBG. Proceeds to say he has never played PUBG.

    Good one.

    actually does look better than pubg lol. ide give it a go. at least it doesnt look as trash as radical heights

    I must say whoever wrote that article on downloading / setting it up in english deserves a medal. Its pretty rare to read a guide on this kind of shit and have it be laid out so plainly and easily. Kudos to that guy.

    After having watch the vids, i'm not a big fan of how rounded and flat all the details of the environment are, it all just seems too soft.
    1 thing I do really love is the dynamic weather, I think that is a really cool feature to implement.

    This looks utterly shithouse.

    Like claiming War Z (or Infestation or whatever they renamed to) was better than DayZ mod..

    You assumed I was referring to myself but I was referring to the video by JackFrags which I linked. Do you have a chip on your shoulder? Please read the comments section of the video where posters have played PUBG and said it is better.

    I didn't have a problem playing on the Thai servers. But YMMV with your connection which may be not as good as mine.

    Oh. Sorry. You're legitimately just simple. My mistake.

    Your title suggests YOU believe it to be better than PUBG. Then you state you haven't played PUBG.

    I don't think PUBG is great.

    Jackfrags is 100% taking the piss with a comment like that.

    Are you also seriously suggesting using Youtube comments as a reliable source?

    So why you play it so much and do so well? :p

    This game deserves a lawsuit, not original at all.. and actual stolen sounds if not more.

    PUBG was the first (excluding BR mod for ARMA that PUBG maker was part of) Battle Royale game of its kind, its an epic idea and apart from poor optimisation/tick rate/anti-cheat is a great game. There is a reason its popular as hell and its not just because of the novelty of it.. nothing has got my heart racing like those final circles in years.. (all I can think of was tense CS 1.6 clan wars)

    I will keep eye on it.. id enjoy FPP if its optimised well and fun. Just give me frostbite BR.

    Don't kid yourself, after the first 1 hour of getting serious the graphics sliders will just be moved to the 'I just want to see the enemies all the time' positions anyway.

    just played my first game ever on it and won solo, most of the people playing are probably just as new to it as me though and i think we started with56 or something, someone also mentioned that their is probably BOTS with shitty AI in the game too, but wait till the pubg korean pro hackers discover this game.

    the graphics and environments look way nicer in this than in pubg, i had to drop down to medium settings half way through the match though as the frames were not spectacular on high but still ran smoother than pubg.

    The rain and night / day modes are nice too
    The map is nicer, the new pubg map is fucking disgusting
    I like that you take no fall damage coming out of buildings but the drop sound needs to be louder for people to hear it
    Map is a bit small but will probably get bigger if enough people play it
    Loot tables seem about as trash as pubg, maybe a little bit better.


    Heres a little video, quality is bad but gives you an idea of what the games like, at least what its like slightly medicated.
