PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds

Nearly bought that today, but decided against it after having a good read... Basically, what put me off, is the cheating, apparently, it's pretty rife... £26 just for someone to kill me through a wall? Or blow my brains out from half the map away? Nah...

The game looks brill though, cracking idea, and its something I would enjoy, so it is a shame it is being spoilt by hackers and cheats!

I could buy it none the less, and if its an issue, resort to levelling the playing field by using scripts myself, but then, what is the point? You get caught, and then your banned, and then you have to fork out again... Rinse repeat, and some of these hard to detect cheating scripts run into hundreds of pounds too.

I read an article where someone said "Cheating has been around for years in games", which it has, but most of the time, your cheating in your own game, say, Grand Theft Auto... punch a code in, and a tank drops down... Jobs a good'un, your not spoiling it for anyone!

But cheating in a game with 99 other people in, well, I think it's a bit below, and I'll not be punting my hard earned into that setup.

Shame like, like I mentioned, if it was a level playing field, I think I'd enjoy it, but, I'll keep tabs on it, see how the anti cheating systems evolve, and if it looks okay, I might get it further down the line!

I have been watching a lot of pubg. There is not much comments by the players on cheating. I rarely hear them mention they seen one.

I noticed someone making the calculation that one in 800 players is a cheater based on avarage playing times. (Being that banning causes cheaters to have less hours logged before they are banned)

They now also have that kill cam where your u can see if the person shooting you is cheating.

I watch people like shroud and dr disrespect a lot when they are on pubg.

Watched some videos of it.... looks boring AF. All that seemed to be happening was running about picking things up off the floor. Very occasionally a dot would appear on the horizon, followed by a 5-second shootout, then back to running around picking things up.

Would have made more sense if it was called Professional Tidying-Up Simulator, and you had to collect dusters and tins of Mr Sheen.

I like the idea of it if I'm honest, I'm not one of them all guns blazing type of gamers, I mean, I used to be, but the general idea of being able to sneak about, then pick off fellow players appeals to me.

I might have a punt at it tomorrow, see what the score is

I watched a video of game grumps trying out pubg, I think I'll stay retro on this one myself. Overwatch looks tempting, but again.... Iaps.
