Winner Winner is a PUBG Podcast (A Player Unknown’s Battlegrounds Podcast)

After a lot of speculation on very little information regarding the new maps, we dive into everything PUBG PC Patch 12.1 has to offer. Miramar is the biggest focus of the discussion here, with updates to terrain, buildings and lighting being the biggest changes. Miramar also gets some exclusive new toys in terms of a new ATV, new motorcycle and an all new crate weapon - the .50 caliber Lynx Anti-Material Rifle that can blast through BRDM glass, destroy all vehicles and decimate the competition.

Winner Winner is a PUBG Podcast (A Player Unknown’s Battlegrounds Podcast)

There’s been so much to talk about in PUBG lately, that our most recent recording had to be chopped up into a few parts. Part one released last week and offers an overview of everything coming and a deep dive on the new 8x8 map Tiger and thoughts on an incoming respawn mechanic. Definitely don’t miss that if you haven’t listened yet? 

Part two is much shorter, and Mike and Kev talk about the other new 8x8 map, Kiki. The only image we’ve seen looks super futuristic, but we’ve also been told that there will be multiple biomes. In addition, the devs tell us this will be the most exploration-focused map to date. 

We also cover the emergency pick-up changes that are coming to help ease the number of planes we were hearing and the frequency. This led us to chatting about the Erangel bridge changes and how interesting fights can be when not traveling by boat, glider or zipline. 

That’s all for this part, friends! See you later this week with part three, where we will talk about all things new to Miramar and our initial impressions!

The PUBG Developers gave us so much to talk about, that the boys went long and had to chop it up into a few parts. The year of the big maps has only just begun!

In part one, Mike and Kev give an overview of what is to come in PUBG PC Patch 12.1, as well as the huge announcement within the PUBG Dev Plan for 2021, which includes news of two upcoming 8x8 km maps - codenamed Tiger and Kiki! 

After teasing all the content there is to talk about, your hosts jump straight into talks about Tiger. A wise man once said a picture is worth a thousand words, to which Mike beat his chest and said you gotta pump those numbers up. Seriously, if anyone wants to word count how far they get based on an artist’s rendering, Kev and Mike’s first thoughts on Tiger really do go the distance. They discuss where they think Tiger is located, how the map might play, and anything else they could glean from A SINGLE PICTURE.

Also, no big deal, but respawns are officially coming to the game. Tiger will be where we all test PUBG’s respawn mechanic out, on live servers. In fact, Tiger will be PUBG’s most experimental map for new features going forward. Listener reactions from Twitter and Discord were shared to kick the respawn discussion off. Oh and even though the last Winner Winner episode was heavily focused on the idea of respawns, Mike and Kev forgot everything they said that episode and did it all again. 

That’s about where things leave off for part one of this three part series. Tune in within the next week or so as two and three get released. The guys talk Kiki and everything Miramar in the following two shows!

PUBG turns 4 years old on March 23, 2021. As we get closer to that insane milestone for this genre-defining battle royale, Mike and Kev discuss what is the core that defines PUBG and use some recent talking points from other community members as a soundboard for the discussion. Notably, and perhaps the driving factor for us thinking about this topic, are a Twitlonger post from chocoTaco on twitter, and a very recent clip from PlayerIGN. In short, choco’s post was about core gameplay, specifically what other games do with core gameplay. He referenced rocket league, counterstrike, and others that are so focused on their core gameplay that they don’t change it - these games only change the things outside the core. He also went into detail on what PUBG could change TODAY that would help alleviate some of the issues he sees as most prevalent. PlayerIGN’s post discussed the knock system and how other BRs have taken PUBG’s innovation and moved it into a full revive system and done other things to evolve and innovate battle royales past PUBG. 

With those broad topics, your hosts defined what they see as core PUBG gameplay, what takes away from that and what can be added or changed that could reinforce core gameplay while helping PUBG keep up with the ever-evolving perceived standards of what a battle royale game should have. Should PUBG have visible pings and respawns? We think some of these changes could help new and returning players while reinvigorating the game for longtime players. Some of these ideas we feel are no brainers and long overdue, but some may be controversial. We want to hear from you! In order to do that, reach out to us here:

PUBG Patch 10.1 brings us PUBG’s smallest map ever with Haven, set on a small industrial island somewhere in North America. This 1x1 km map features 32 players and is only available in duos mode, with the option to queue as a solo. There are guards and a commander (Stronger AI bots) guarding loot at the pillar buildings if you want to rush them for tier 3 loot, but beware, as there is only one way in or out. There's also a roaming chopper that shines a spotlight on players lingering outside, as well as a roving armored truck that will shoot any player within line of sight with devastating accuracy and damage. Set at night, with plenty of high rises and areas of cover, Haven is one of PUBG’s most unique maps to date. And, if you find yourself stuck on a high rise with zone pushing in or a team pushing up, you can now pick up an emergency parachute to safely jump off a high spot and chute down. 

Trigger and 1Heart had a lot to say in what was supposed to be a short episode. This was recorded just before the holidays after the boys got time to play a good number of games, but with family and new year hustle and bustle this episode got a little delayed. Sorry! Still, we hope you enjoy the conversations and ideas that were put forth, and we hope you’ve all been enjoying the new map and PUBG as a whole! Talk to you all again soon with another episode!

PUBG’s Creative Director, Dave Curd, along with other PUBG developers hopped on a call with a number of PUBG partners to talk about the new map Haven and allow both partners and developers to ask and answer questions. MTBtrigger took some time to summarize the 3 hour call in a little over 20 minutes.

Dave Curd talks about how a big focus with Haven was to lure players into buildings for top tier loot with the Pillar guards and commander while making the spotlight from the helicopter also push people into building to building combat. This is a shift from crate drops that force players out into the open to secure the best loot.

Partners asked for player count to be increased on the new map. Another ask was for better loot on Haven. Past talks about Haven, players and developers discussed map weighting in certain regions, which led to the discussion around something called Region-Agnostic Match Settings. This would mean that each region could have settings that suit them back. For example, NA may get a mega and mini royale choice to allow players to stay on big or small maps as they wish. 

Another topic was about whether respawns could ever be implemented into PUBG, with opinions all over the spectrum. Ranked was also talked about, along with having so many queues and so many different playstyles out there within our favorite battle royale. Players also asked if we would ever see Arena mode or Fantasy BR come back at some point, but there was nothing new to share on those modes. 

There much more we can’t fit into the show notes, so give trigger a listen here. See you all soon with a new episode from the guys reacting to the new map and features. They’ve both been having a blast so far!

A deadlier Mad Max era is born in PUBG Patch 9.2 with the introduction of Dirt Bikes, shooting from the driver’s seat, vehicle shooting stabilization and massive sidearm buffs. You're going to want to look both ways before crossing the road now. Along with these updates comes a much needed assault rifle rebalancing and changes to Vikendi that should increase competitive viability.

Hosts MTBtrigger and the1Heart (aka Mike and Kev) talk about their recent experiences with patch 9.2. Kicking off this episode is another pre-recording duo win on Miramar. This might be the most exciting game the two hosts played in recent history so they break down the crazy final circles that led to the victory, which led to some welcome strategy discussions.

This patch brought the Dirt Bike - a brand new single passenger vehicle - and the ability for the driver, of any vehicle, to pull out their sidearm and shoot! This may not seem like a massive change, but the side arm buffs combined with the aim stabilization this patch brought has really changed the entire vehicle scene, at least in the short term. All pistols received a large overhaul, so Mike and Kev decided it would be best for everyone to check out friend and creator C_Dome’s detailed breakdown of all the pistol changes, rather than listen to them list off a ton of numbers about shot damage and deviation.

Check out C_Dome’s pistol deep dive here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f6Oz4Qxwt3w

Listener Questions:

Do you think Vikendi will make its way into the pro-scene with these changes?

What about the updates to side arms and vehicle stabilization - Do you think this will have a large impact in the long term?

Console players - Has the vehicle stabilization opened up a new drive-by meta?

As always, let us know on twitter or discord!

Mike and Kev got together to talk about all the new things that came to PUBG in Season 9. 

With Season 9 comes a new, dynamic 3x3 kilometer map named Paramo that changes every time you drop in to battle. It’s landscape is charred by an active volcano, and crossing lava is much more dangerous than crossing a river. The guys give their honest early impressions of the map and how it compares to other other maps in terms of playable terrain, pacing and overall  design decisions. 

But that’s not all that comes with season 9 - We also get ranked solos, ranked ruleset adjustments and rank point resets. We also get some very slight nerfs to the beryl and SLR, G-coin as a form of prepaid currency to PC (which is something that has been on console for a long time at this point), and a new, shorter season pass structure with earnable G-Coin allowing pass grinders to pay for future passes without having to spend money again. 

Aside from talking about the new content, Kev and Mike discuss, at length, the inevitable culling of the queues, which has already claimed TPP duos and nearly caused Paramo to be TPP squads only before community backlash got us an FPP squads mode as well. These massive and long overdue changes to regional matchmaking should help with the health of queues but not without some growing pains for the community.

On this episode, Mike and Kev talk about the all new Arena Mode in PUBG.

What is it?

Arena is a round based game mode that pitches squads against 1-2 other squads, with each squad able to lose 3 rounds before being eliminated. Winning rounds and getting kills earns extra currency, which allows you to buy better weapons, fresh armor, healing items and throwables. Think auto-battler meets PUBG final circle meets CSGO/Valorant economy! It’s a blast, and the guys talk about all the plusses and the very few things that they’d like to see tweaked!

Arena Mode is in testing until October 8th on PC and console, so be sure to check it out!

PUBG Labs Arena Mode  

Additionally, Mike and Kev start off talking about what has become a pre-recording tradition - getting a duo chicken dinner! They talked about a particular kill that kept them alive, which was a jump shotgun kill. They weren’t recording, but we got a view from replays to share: Kev's Jump Shotty POV | Jump Shotty Fixed POV

This week MTBtrigger sits down with Hawkinz, one of the Community Managers for PUBG.

Hawkinz has been around the game, in some form, since pre-alpha.  They explore where the game started and how it has changed over time.  Are there features Hawkinz thinks should be removed from the game?

Nothing is off the table:  How does a PUBG team member view cheaters?  Does cheating benefit PUBG somehow?  How does a gamer, who had never worked for a video game company, get involved and ultimately employed by the company who makes the game they love?  Should a new ranked mode be added?

We hear about the challenges behind these topics/scenarios as well as Hawkinz’ personal opinion on how these should be tackled.

These topics and more inside the episode!
