EDGELORDUNKNOWN's Battlegrounds is the tits
« on: April 17, 2017, 07:08:03 PM »
if you're like me and always enjoyed the long sojourns into the countryside in older battlefield games, followed by a quick minimal skirmish, a bit of daring do and just enough time to celebrate your victory before getting sniped in the head from 1000 yards away, this is game for you. routine loot collections of an increasingly familiar landscape until death comes at you from nowhere. like animal crossing: stalingrad.

played an embarrassing amount of hours to the point that i'm considering making my steam profile private.

Seems to have stolen the crown from H1Z1.

I'm not really big on playing these style of games. Same as I didn't really care for the Day Z craze that swept through first person shooters but these are at least more entertaining to watch somebody play than those were.

And battlegrounds seems to be more about shooting people than just driving around in a car like H1Z1 was.

H1Z1 got there first, but it's basically been stagnant ever since. Battlegrounds seems like a more expanded, polished take on the genre.

A part of me really enjoys that this game has the most distinguished mentally-challenged ass name.

I also really like that this complete nobody not only convinced a company to name it after his online handle but it's become incredibly successful. Guy is awesome and does good mods.

Really enjoying this despite hating DayZ

At least for an early access game it gets the main feature down, it's incredible in duo/squad games.

jk I always play the same way in h1z1

I got this today. I was initially hesitant coming from H1Z1, which I had stretches of fun with but was mostly just frustrated by, and I dumped it after 20 hours. After that I was worried that the genre just wasn't for me, but it's remarkable how much better everything here feels than KOTK. The controls in general feel way more responsive  - the movement feels like you're actually controlling your character instead of pulling them by a string in the direction you want to go. The gunplay actually feels like gunplay, and the modular aspect of the guns is a nice touch.  I've only played one round, but I fared surprisingly well (#7 with 4 kills) which is encouraging.

Runs like ass on my PC though. From the performance surveys on steam it seems I'm not alone, so hopefully they'll optimize it sooner than later. I really need to upgrade my card though

Well the two games I played were fun, but now the loading screen refuses to go away even though I can hear the audio of my character moving and punching and shit. Guess I'll get my first Steam refund. Oh well.

Been playing a bunch of this over the last week. I've been SO CLOSE to the chicken dinner. I can usually reliably get to top 10 by chasing the white wall and camping around it.

The closest I've been is #3 after I stole some dudes jeep to escape dying only to find myself in a tiny circle with a loud ass jeep and too scared to get out because it would take too long to slow down and get out safely. I ended up pulling up behind a rock and then getting got a few seconds later.

PUNCH CLUB!

I find it more rewarding to pull of fun kills in this game. I've gotten really good at dropping vehicles onto peoples heads, and headshots with punches. When someone runs away from punch club I stalk them till one of us dies. It's great fun griefing them for minutes on end.

Finally got a win today in a duo game. My buddy died when there was still around 20 people left. I managed to sneak around and pick people off here and there. In the final minutes I snuck behind two dudes and took them out before they could figure out what was happening. Then when it was just myself and a team left, I got some lucky shots out from a prone position and knocked out both enemies. Super lucky.

Then the next game he and myself pulled some good teamwork then managed to kill ourselves with a bike

It really is. Playing duos last night and I got clipped by a team who had holed up in a set of shipping containers in the second to last circle. My buddy was prone in the grass between a road and the fenced off area where the container was, and the last circle pushed them out. He opened up on them as soon as they came through the fence, and they proceeded to completely shit their pants and try to run back to cover as he mowed them down. Hilarious shit

So I picked this up on Saturday.
I fucking suck at this game, but got carried in a squad 5x to victory so I guess I'm like ready for the Twitch.tv partnership esports pro of this right?
I slapped some dude with a pan and died, that's the extent of my experience so far. It was pretty good.

I was talking to another friend of mine and we both agree duos is the sweet spot in this game. I'm glad we have options of course but duos hit that zone of not being as slow as solo, but it isn't the near constant struggle (large firefights, stress on speed/getting a vehicle, loot) that a lot of squad games tend to be. 

With duos you get fast looting, faster play but without the drawbacks of giant firefights getting shot from all directions type chaos of squads.

I agree. Teamwork adds a whole level of fun and strategy to the game, and duos seem to have more consistent pacing than squad games. Also with duos you never have to deal with the stress of being the last man standing in a four man squad D:

Lol so after watching the fourth clip you posted I unmuted global chat so i could talk shit on fools, but I retardedly had voice chat set to open instead of push to talk. So a dude runs by the window of the room i'm looting and I say to my buddy on discord "i've got company, but they didn't notice me" so they hear me and immediately double back and bumrush me  :lol it was at the top of the match in Polyana though, so I wound up setting off a chain of engagements that attracted like four other teams to my location. This game fuckin rules

It's a damn good game and I'm not sick of it after 140 hours. I just started doing rando squads and damn that is insane. I've been solo this whole time so I avoid people for the most part unless I can kill, but in squads you see folks and it's like: "YO BITCH FUCK YOU AND YOUR RIDE"

Played some duos tonight, then got to #4 on my first solo game! Only had one kill though. I was super nervous and kept escaping/hiding, but next round I realized it's actually easier to just chase people since a lot of them seem to be escaping each other a lot in the begining. :doge It was more fun solo than I had though, but even better when playing with a friend. Gonna be interesting to try as a squad! Beating myself up on the fact that I avoided this game for various reasons until today.

squads are intense, I had a bunch of squad games that ended with us at #2 yesterday, like four in a row that was brutal lol. Duo still the sweet spot for me but the on I think I play rarest.

One advice i'd give to anyone about to pick this up is don't sweat the chicken dinner so much. While skill and learning to position means A LOT, sometimes the random elements of the game can really work against you (circle movement etc). So what I do is I just focus on top 20. If I get top 20 I'm good, everything else is extra.

when your buddy dies right off the bat so you decide to leeroy jenkins it but you forget you're actually not that bad at this game

Do you respawn in this game, or is it just one life per match?  And if it's the latter, do you have to sit there until the match is over to move on?

one life per match.

if its solo you go right back to the menu so you can start another match, if its a team you can watch your teammates until they either die or win

It's fucking awful lol, this is what's finally put me over the edge to grab an SSD. A couple of patches ago, the game would load in but the loading screen would stay up so you couldn't see shit, unless you mashed tab as soon as you heard the lobby load. I still get shit like this from time to time: https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=959783295

all the tips ive seen for zeroing say it's better to zero under than over. It's easier to tell how close you are to hitting your target if you under shoot because then you can see the bullet puff hit the ground....instead of it just going over their head.

So if someone is at say 350 meters, it's better to zero to 300 instead of 400.

I aim a lot lower and lead shorter than I normally would in this game.
