Why you should leave pubg in the dust


  • Founders

    Pubg has made multiple mistakes in it's history of roughly over one year of open public playabillity. I have gathered info from then on to show you that this game is on the way meet the Culling and where it belongs.
    (The Culling is a dead battle royal game https://steamcharts.com/app/437220)

    In a Q&A way back in October of 2017, Brendan Greene had stated that pubg is a service, not a game. Therefore if Bluehole announces a change to the game but does not uphold it, the game will become fraudulent. Article Here

    Since Bluehole announces in March of 2018 that there is a limb penetration system coming soon to the game and want to test it on their test servers. Yet, four and a half months later, there is no limb penetration system in the game. Picture here

    It is difficult to find more of these instances in the game, because pubg has decided to take down their roadmaps of 2017 & 2018, I have notified them to open them back up for the public to see again.

    While I'm waiting to hear back from Bluehole about their roadmaps, I've looked at their concurrent player marks on the steam charts and what an astonishing sight. Since the peak in January of this year, pubg has dropped 50% of it's player base in 6 months, and it's still falling at the same levels. At this rate, pubg will lose the #1 spot on steam to dota at the end of this year. It might even go faster due to the new br's coming out such as Battlefield V, the new COD br, and Mavericks all coming out within the year as well.https://steamcharts.com/app/578080

    Lastly, pubg is too focused on making sure that everyone is happy with their game. They keep posting that they want to hear feedback from test servers and new updates, but have they seen the player base feedback? It's the opposite of helpful to anyone. Bluehole will need to make a stance and realize that the community is not always right about certain things in a game. There is a reason that the community doesn't design games, because sometimes the community is a bit slow to reason. Game dev's are supposed to do their job and make the game in their own eyes, and if that game dev sucks and doing that, then you need to get new game devs. (I'm not making a link to anything, because you can look at any pubg update and see this happen.)

    That's about as deep an analysis as a puddle! It's also not a reason to leave the game - it's just another pick on PUBG post. So 'm not sure where you are going with the title - or what this has to do with Mavericks Founders?

    Anyway, lets play along...

    In a Q&A way back in October of 2017, Brendan Greene had stated that pubg is a service, not a game. Therefore if Bluehole announces a change to the game but does not uphold it, the game will become fraudulent.

    The Daily Star - That well known technical journalistic masterpiece! 😏 It must all be true.

    Anyway, let's suppose that the quotes in the article are accurate. The context of the reply was Brendan's response to the question "can we expect a sequel to the game?". I've tried to twist this around as much as I can, but the only interpretation I can come up with from his response is that for the foreseeable future PUBG will continue to evolve as version 1.0.

    How did you make the leap to it becoming fraudulent if they happen to post on Discord that they are trialing a feature on their test servers?

    I've looked at their concurrent player marks on the steam charts and what an astonishing sight. Since the peak in January of this year, pubg has dropped 50% of it's player base in 6 months, and it's still falling at the same levels.

    Looks like it's leveling off at around 1.2 - 1.3m concurrent players to me.

    This is to be expected though! The game pretty much broke every record for total number of concurrent players. Combine that with the "hype" that the game has received in not only gaming media but also mainstream media and there will be a significant number of "Just passing through" players who are playing it only because its the current "cool thing".

    The numbers will settle back down to those that are a bit more serious about the game. For those players and proffessionals, PUBG has just announced a 5 year plan to commit to PUBG at an eSports level.

    I doubt being Number 1 on Steam charts is high in their list of priorities or has much bearing on their roadmap.

    The ONLY reason to leave a game is because you personally get no more enjoyment from playing it. End of story.

    I still enjoy it. I've never been one for "hot drops" so 99% of the time, I don't suffer too badly with desync and manage to play rounds the way I like to. I don't have a massive frag count or 1+ K/D ratio but I seem to be holding steady in the top 3% (EU FPP Solos) - I'm happy with that.

    @gargoyle-0001 Ok if you don't like Daily Star here's another Q&A from IGN. Q&A Here

    I'm using this Q&A as a pivot to show you that people can consider PUBG as a service similar to a cell phone provider or internet provider. Therefore, if the "service" does not provide what it grants it's users, this is called fraud.

    I'm sorry I used Discord, because you don't think it's not as trustworthy as other platforms, so here's the same post from PUBG Corp. but on Twitter. Announcing Limb Pen. Here Announcing in next Update Here

    Lastly, the 1.2m - 1.3m players you see is a one hour peak every day, which then goes down to about 250,00 players as a low. So the average of that is about 700,000 players active. If you looke a bit further down the line, you can see that roughly 12% of the pubg player base has left each month. If you do the math, losing 12% for 6 months will give you roughly half of what you have. You can also see in January there was 1.5m players average and today there is 700,000.
    Look at the average not the peak

    Pubg was never "mainstream" due to Fortnite doing quite well during the beginning of 2018. (Fortnite also appeals to a larger audience than Pubg, because of it's more casual play.)

    I see you mentioned your stats, I wish I could post mine since I got false banned a few months ago. (Top 500 players in FPP squad and solo in three seasons)

    No. It's not at all like that.

    The equivalent for your mobile operator analogy would be for them to say "We are working on improving our 4G coverage". The company installing some test equipment and then deciding that the test results do not get the results they were looking for so they go back to the drawing board with new test equipment.

    There's no fraud here.

    You can dig into the stats all you like. OK. The game is plummeting like a stone - is that still a reason for anyone that already has the game to "leave it in the dust"?

    Your thread title is nothing more than "click-bait" and the post is nothing more than another mediocre attack on PUBG.


  • Founders

    I've started this thread as a more interesting discussion around PUBG's stats and high-player cound games in general.


  • Founders

    @gargoyle-0001 They said the limb penetration would be implemented in the next update . . . three months ago. Here's the links again of what I am talking about if you didn't look.
    Announcing Limb Pen. Limb Pen. in next update

    As you speak of my analogy, "The company installing some test equipment" part is where they announce they are putting Limb Penetration in test servers for feedback, and the "back to the drawing board" part is never mentioned in the posts. They announce in the second post that the details will be announced in the next update.

    Stats are important to anything. It solidifies arguments in any situation. You can't argue against it as long as the source is trustworthy, which it's steamcharts so I don't know why steam would lie about this stuff.

    The player base is leaving for a reason, maybe you should go ask them. I have my reasons why I left, so maybe you should go ask others.

    I'll give you click bait, since it's wildly used in media and news to grab the attention to the argument. If you ever take a literature class, it's called the hook of the argument.


  • Founders

    You keep posting the same links to the same tweets which say "Hey, we're putting this on our test servers and we want your feedback". If the feedback was bad then guess what... the feature doesn't make it into production which is why it's not been mentioned in the release notes!

    You seem to be having difficulty distinguishing TESTING from PRODUCTION.

    The player base is leaving for a reason, maybe you should go ask them. I have my reasons why I left, so maybe you should go ask others.

    In your post you never actually reference any of those points as being your reason for leaving let alone making it a compelling argument for why OTHER people should leave the game. So your "hook" has no significance to your argument. Thus, "click-bait".



  • When they removed rain and fog that's when I saw the end coming.


  • Founders

    There is still rain and fog!


  • Founders

    @etidorhpa-0001
    The fog and rain are in certain maps- random fog and rain. PubG has its faults. mainly due to the multitudes of hackers and exploiters.


  • Founders

    @dracas-0001

    I have to assume your a Fortnite BOY the way you hammering at pubG a game that was only going to be a back burner game that took off like a rocket.
    Even with the mass hacks out there and the Exploiters using as they say Pro-gamer tips skirting the rules to get any and all advantage over someone else.
    that is the reason its diminishing returns on the player base not that its a bad game its because many players have no Morales - and Esprit De Corps- like a sneak thief in the night cant play with out hacks, cause they were told they are all winners. cause there to lazy to practice and train at something.

    MY2cents.

    These 10 words undermine everything you have said...

    Because you're too lazy to proof read what you have written!


  • Founders

    good way to split the answer . and the 10 words are aimed at the exploiters and hackes are you one of those HMMM

    I've re-read both your original posts and this answer three times. I have no idea what you are on about!
