My Love/Hate Relationship With PUBG

Ah PUBG.

PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds.

Battle Royale

The games that take over the online games by assault. PUBG is one of those, and one of the first. A mod that became an independent game. However, there is the question, is the game good? Is it playable? Do users enjoy it? For my personal opinion, we have to go back to the beginning.

The beginning

September 12, 2017. The day I bought PUBG, even though it was still in early access. I had seen some friends play, as well as all the streamers. I figured, why not? It cost $ 30, which is not cheap, but not terrible. From what I heard, the developer was very active in the development. Then I bought it.

For a while, it was fun. I had a group of friends with whom I would play squads and, being my first FPS on PC, I learned to play with a keyboard and mouse. There were mistakes, of course, and hackers, but it’s an early access game, you expect it. Right? As well.

Things looked good. Updates were coming. He was making money. Everyone in the world looked forward to what the game would become.

Today

Fast forward to today, more than a year later.

There are still problems. Many problems.

It’s not that the game doesn’t update. They release updates all the time, even now, and shut down the servers twice a week for maintenance. It’s just … a conflict of interest, maybe?

The developers are really worried about money, or so it seems. Also, with the sea of ​​real battle games, they are worried about staying relevant. The problem is that they really aren’t helping at all.

The company seems to be more about masks, maps and weapons instead of fixing what they already have. Each performance update helps somewhat, but it breaks two or three more things. For example, an update left my friends and I couldn’t even join a game. Not well.

And then, I’m tired. It’s fun, but I’m tired. You will have nights where everything is fine and you will have fun. Then, you will have nights when they will shoot you in the corners or you will lose fights that you clearly should have won. The repetition system is still so slow that you cannot even see a repetition and see precisely what happened.

Honestly, at the beginning of the night, it’s like a jolt if the server supports you or not. If not, you lose a lot of shootings. If so, you win those. It’s pretty crazy, but it happens over and over again.

Even with all the problems, and getting angry, I still have more than 200 hours in the game. Why? Because it’s fun. It is a fun game, when it works. The problem is when you press for it to be in eSports tournaments, then the whole world sees two players survive a grenade that exploded right at their feet (yes, that happened).

It is a fight. Because if you post about it, people say it’s your PC. All I can say is that I have played enough to realize that it is the game and not my PC. If I can’t play a game with a GTX 1080, then I don’t want to play that game.
