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!

Mike and Kev start the episode catching up with how PUBG has been treating them, individually, and then they theory craft a new report function that would allow you to compliment the player who just bested you. Wouldn’t that be nice?

The crew then gets into all the new changes that came to Sanhok in the rework. They talk about the specific locations that have seen changes and reminisce about those that are gone. The pair talk about the changes they love and one’s they will need to get used to over time. 

Sanhok’s contentious past with professional players is talked about, especially with the old cliffs. This discussion brought up this unforgettable play by TaylorJay when Sanhok was first forced into competition. The devs seem to have made a lot of intentional changes to offer more playable terrain and ways to close the gap between positions of power and a lack thereof.

Winner Winner a PUBG podcast featuring guests Brian Corrigan(@svperfecta) and Maynard (u/pubg_silver_saint) with host MTBtrigger (@mtbtrigger)

On this episode we welcome back Corrigan, who is now the head of PUBG in North America, for the third time as well Maynard, a game designer who designed ranked mode and many of the other systems we see in the game today.

There were two main topics discussed - ranked mode and bots.  There was also a bonus conversation about the cheating problem that most FPS games are facing right now.

Ranked was up first and the guests discussed the ranked algorithm, how ranked mode will evolve in the future, and what changes are already being worked on for a near-future implementation.  This part of the conversation is roughly an hour so there are many tangents and small topics inside the episode as well.

After discussing ranked the discussion moved to bots - why now? Will they evolve? What problems are they actively solving and what problems are they helping in an indirect way.

Perhaps some of the most interesting bot related conversation was how the bots could help with testing new modes without sacrificing the ability to queue for the currently offered modes.

This is definitely meant to be a part of the conversation for ranked, bots, and cheating so if something stood out to you please let us know and please don’t hesitate to reach out to the folks at PUBG

Catch up with Corrigan on Twitter @svperfecta and Maynard on reddit at u/pubg_silver_saint

Winner Winner Season 3 begins at the end of May!

 

While this is just an announcement, the hosts do chat about what has been going on and why we took a little vacation.

We’ve been diving back into PUBG and having a blast, so it's time to turn the mics back on and get after it.

Ultimately it boiled down to some production issues which is what the team worked to solve over the last few months.  Moving forward Winner Winner will be part of the XP Media network which doesn’t change anything from the listener perspective, but will add a viewer perspective.

Coming soon will be a complete YouTube overhaul and a talk show component for regular episodes!

We’re looking forward to Season 3… now get out there and get some chicken!

The whole crew returns for the first episode of 2020 and it is a MONSTER - perhaps a sea monster?  

The new year kicks off with the brand new 2x2 map - Karakin!

Listen as Heath gets attacked by what sound like carnivorous animals with wings. We also had a few hours to check it out on the test realm before recording so you are getting our raw opinions on the black zone, sticky bombs, lack of grenades, the Karakin loot meta, and how we think the gameplay will evolve on the smallest map PUBG has ever released.

There is a ton to discover on this map including breachable buildings, vast tunnel systems, and thin walls that players can now shoot through - we discuss it all!

If you’re struggling with close quarters combat or simply want to refine your skills, we talk about our favorite tips and, perhaps more importantly, the mindset you need to have when things get up close and personal. 

Let us know if you try any of the strategies, or if you have a favorite that we didn’t mention.

On this episode, we talk about PGC - the PUBG Global Championship - where players from all around the globe have competed in their respective regions through 3 phases just to make it to this final stage to prove they are the best in the world. At the time of recording, one of three weekends was already over, and now we are about to head into our 3rd and final weekend of play. That means half the teams have already been sent packing. Hear what happened in the first weekend and why you should absolutely watch the rest. 

We also got into how to make your viewing experience better and more informative, what to look for, which teams to watch and more. If you haven’t watched at all, be sure to at least check the VODs to watch Game 6 on the Sunday of each week, as well as the Game 3 from weekend 1 that the1Heart mentions in episode.

Here are timestamped links to the match on Youtube for: 

To watch the Grand Finals Live, catch it all live on Twitch, here: 

To end, we talked about a new feature that was announced on the day of recording that has just made it to live servers this week. PUBG Labs is the name of the new feature we chat about, and PUBG Patch 5.2 is a fun one and we will get into that in full in a later episode, once we’ve had time to mess with it all. (The patch notes were actually released just hours after recording.)
