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.

It's been centuries... Well, years... Well, AT LEAST a couple months in the making... But here it is: Robin and Arjuna's new podcast announcement! Check out what we've been working on, and find out how you can get in on the ground floor of a new cultural movement. Or at least, our podcast.

Welcome to LISTENING GLASS

This episode features the track 'MasterOM' by Mac Woodruff. Find his work on Bandcamp and Soundcloud.

We <3 you all. Stay tuned for our first episode, dropping on this feed in a couple weeks.

Vikendi is coming to console!!  We cover the key features our XBOX and PS4 players will be getting to know over the coming weeks.  Most notable, the new parachuting mechanic. We discuss a variation on the Parachuting Strategy in comparison to the commonly used Wacky Jacky strategy (Link).

PC players have now had a few weeks to dig into Vikendi so we launched our focused location highlight series starting with Goroka – Buildings to loot, Early and Mid-Game Strategy, and Unique features you can take advantage of those during combat.

A dev report  was released an hour before the recording of this podcast.  We discuss the various changes to the ‘SMG Meta’ that the devs have planned for the test server.  Tommy Gun Aficionados will be sad.

Some interesting rumors surfaced about a potential change to the Global PUBG Esports scene.  What would it be like if the EU and NA pro leagues adopt the rules currently in the Asia League?

Would you enjoy Ring of Elysium?  Heathy and 1Heart try to convince Trigger to give it a shot (The conversation resulted in an interesting look at what makes BR games so appealing and what opportunities exist for PUBG development in the future - Volcanic Ash as blue zone anyone?)
