Learn how he got into this risky business… and if he ever got out. Who is the legend behind the counter?

This week we explore the connection between our minds and our senses by plunging into dark, soundproof containers called sensory deprivation tanks.  Can they induce psychedelic experiences or allow you to talk to your dead cat?  Can they reduce anxiety and stress?  Can they make you go mad?  Or are they just a great place to take a well-needed nap?  Tune in to find out!

In this episode, the full cast offers up impressions on the new patch to start before we discuss our favorite tips and strategies on how to win more early game engagements - tactics for the early game (tips for solos, duos, and squads). These tips aren’t just for the hot droppers. How should you contest your mid-tier loot spot that another squad or two decided to land on when you were hoping for a more peaceful start? It’s best to be prepared.  

Heathy offers up a new squad tactic - Firing Squad - we think you’ll like it! (Send us clips of successfully baiting someone into a firing squad.)

MTB puts a hit out on GtuckTV (gTuck). The first person to successfully bait Gtuck into a firing squad, and catch it on camera in the month of May, will get 5 gifted subscriptions from MTB to your twitch channel.

The crew also discusses their initial feelings about Patch 28.  They break down everything from the new Weapon Mastery system to the various bug fixes. Biggest Surprise? The team is very split on the addition of smoke timers for spectators.

All of the hosts have very different playstyles and not everyone agrees on strategy and tactics:  Join the discussion in our discord - how do you take on early fights? Winner Winner Discord: https://discord.gg/U6Ub9rr

Big (good) news for the Winner Winner podcast!

The official hand off has been made from Arjuna and Robin to The1Heart and MTBtrigger - We discuss some housekeeping items as a result of this announcement, but mostly we wanted to thank everyone for their continued support and give a glimpse into the future.

Big news in another dev letter: Weapon mastery is coming to the game - Think Call of Duty like weapon progression with R6 charms.  We break down the letter, our hopes for this new system, and how this will effect gameplay. PUBG Weapon Mastery Announcement

Patch 27 is here!  Only a week after the Erangel Dev Letter was dropped.  We break down the biggest changes with the patch!

  • SMG Switcheroo
  • M16 & MK47 Mutant Buffs
  • Aim Punch Changes
  • Loot changes (Combined SMG/Pistol Mags, Bullet Loops combined)
  • Changes to the Quick Join system

Patch 27a also dropped… on April 1st.  Pretty funny little joke PUBG put together, but we’re wondering if some of the items are actually laced with truth.  

April Fools Day also uncovered some rumors from data mining about some potential new additions coming to the game (one of these was confirmed during the editing of this episode):

  • New Vehicle?
  • New Skins for some popular streamers?
  • Map Preference instead of Selection?

The crew discusses toxic gameplay and what should actually be considered ‘toxic’.  They also dive deep into Camping. Not with a tent, although some players may enjoy that, we talked about defensive play and when to leverage your position in our tactical talk.

Lastly we had one of our very own, HeathyKeithy, conduct a science experiment and interview with a medical professional and soon to be Cardiologist... Are top 10 situations killing you?!?!

BIG news hit this week in the PUBG world - actually a few big pieces of news.

First, we got a new dev letter talking about how the development team is going to tackle updating this map.  We talk about the ‘goal’ they outlined and then we look into the few pieces of data they provided via graphs in the letter:

  • Spawn Rates Over Time ( How much loot is actually in Erangel from Aug ‘17 to Dec ‘18)
  • Spawn Rate vs. Pickup Rate (How much loot leaves the 15 studied areas)
  • Comparisons to Sanhok and how they aim to make Erangel unique and up to date

We also learned this week that PLAYERUNKNOWN himself, Brendan Greene, is stepping down from his current role - we talk about what that could mean for the future of PUBG.

Lastly we get into some protips about getting better at being aggressive.  We all talk about our favorite scenarios to get aggressive and some recent times it worked (and didn’t work…).

We finished by listing our personal top request for revamping the loot on Erangel.

On this episode we talk about the game we all know and love - Apex Legends… I mean PUBG.

Jokes aside, It would be silly to ignore the new kid on the block after the splash Apex made.  We talked about our initial opinions on Apex and some of the things we like and dislike. The majority of Apex content from the Winner Winner team is going to be on a separate episode, but we had a healthy discussion of the impressive twitch stats Apex has posted in the first two weeks after launch

Wes from WTFast was on the show to talk about their GPN (Gaming Private Network).  If you’ve ever thought your ping was too high or had latency issues you need to check this service out.  There is even a trial of their service (no credit card required) for you to check out to see if it will work for your area.  https://www.wtfast.com/  (Head over to the discord to enter for one of the three giveaways Wes offered the winner winner community)

Back to PUBG… The end of the Vikendi season pass is upon us!  We talk about how the Vikendi pass impacted play and our overall feelings as we enter the 9th week of the pass.  Definitely interesting to see how our opinions changed since we last discussed the season pass format.

Phase 1 of the NPL (National PUBG League - the NA pro scene basically) will be ending in the beginning of March.  We discuss the results of the pre-season as well as our thoughts on improving the viewer experience for future PUBG tournaments.

Make sure to check out the new dedicated esports page for PUBG (all regions easily accessible) - https://www.pubgesports.com/

Lastly we talked about the state of PUBG custom servers and what some community members are doing with them.  If you had an experience, like us, that was sub-par in customs (they took too long, unorganized, etc.) there are some people out there that are doing an incredible job.  One of those people is a twitch streamer - Papastanimus - https://www.twitch.tv/papastanimus.  HeathyKeithy and MTBtrigger had the opportunity to interview him.
