    no clue how many matches i've played but i've had 3 solo wins. haven't played any squad yet.

    regardless i'm having tons of fun with it. sure it isn't pubg but it's damn solid and has an appeal of it's own.

    It was down to the last 5. Two Squads of two, and me solo inside the death circle. I had full health but was forced into the circle by the storm and got caught in the cross fire.

    Everything was so crazy that i didn’t even think of just waiting in the storm and letting the squads fight it out. Probably could have jumped into the fight with 60ish health left, but with fewer enemies.

    I’m really enjoying it, but I’m sure PUBG will take over once it’s released.

    Won my first solo match. I’m not the biggest fan of the Minecraft aspect of it. But it’s still fun AF.

    Glad stats are here. Also not glad because now I know how many matches I've played. Before I only knew wins and that was better.

    Biggest real problem is the storm shrinks crazy fast. How are you even supposed to build up something unless you magically land in the middle of the storm.

    Also.... What's the proper terminology for weapon colors? I always thought purple was legendary, and I know it's gold here, so...

    White: Common
    Green: Uncommon
    Blue: Rare
    Purple: Powerful (?)
    Gold: Legendary

    It feels like I’ve seen a gold sniper before.

    Well once you figure out that problem you should know that if you have the pick ax out you will pick up all the supplies dropped. That way you aren’t slowly going through a loot dump to avoid picking up grey guns.

    Don't land anywhere named.... Most houses have a shed, and there are usually a minimum of 2 chests between the house and shed. Land on the roof, knock through the rooftop, and you'll find a chest in the attic. Look around before you land on the roof, and make sure no one is landing before or immediately after you -- if they are, change course.

    To each his own, but I marked spots I personally like to land depending on the route of the bus.

    If I’m playing solo I like to hit the tower south of dusty Depot. If I’m playing with a team I like to hit a spot that’s a little less travelled. Some of my buddies die real quick.

    This guy has solid base building skills, not quite on my level, but decent he can provide a nice base from where to start. At the very minimum, everyone who plays this game should be able to construct bases like this at least this quickly. You hear that, Space?



    Yeah right, I need to learn how to build a 3 story base first. Speaking of, can you practice in the PvE home place?

    Every game I’ve won I’ve been on the ground and destroying bases.

    I'e got 3 solo wins despite being really bad. Some of my favorite drop spots are highlighted on that map but I'd add the ice cream truck (2 chest spawns) and chest tree (3) in the northeast. The stack of cars southwest of moisty mire is also really good. Usually get multiple chests fairly quickly plus like 300 metal after you destroy the stacks. There are also several run down houses close by.

    I actually like that you don't earn anything permanent that could impact the game. It means every game that everyone has an mostly equal chance (other than rng)

    What platform do y'all play on? We have a few TMBers that play on XB1 from time to time. Space, Taco Sa1ad, and citrodong

    Hopefully everyone is still playing when I get back from vacation in a week.
