Bathroom project is stalled out. Tile people either don't show at all or won't return messages......
Bummer. I have to say, I definitely paid near the top end for my bathroom remodel, but at least it went well at every step of the process. ($30k for a strip to the studs, replace everything)

That is about what mine WOULD HAVE cost had I not done most of it myself. I raised the ceiling about 3 feet as well.

If I add up all the time a contractor was here it is only about 16 hours (plumbing, electrical, general). Otherwise I did majority of it.

My $25k bathroom will end up costing about $6k.

That being said, the delay is because of the way I chose to have it done. To me, it is worth it.

However, finding good help with openings on their schedule is a whole other matter.

Anyone know if all the mods work yet? My original game gets played more than the SE. Fully modded original is such an amazing game.

There are so many other better products out there. They were a successful cash grab and the result was a pretty weak product. I feel shame for believing the hype.

The game is rather boring. I actually like Wildlands over this - which isn't much different.

Survival mode is a lot more fun than the rest of the game.

Just got it today. It's a blast. It did freeze once on me, but hey, early access.
Oddly never had a single crash or freeze until this patch. Seems to be a new issue, so hopefully will be fixed in the next update.

I had once. But the crashes now are really often. The problem isnt really the crash itself, but how it crashes. It blocks the whole Windows UI and I can start the Task Manager, but cant control it to shut it down manually. I actually have to hit the reset button.

After 40 hours now I start to see the flaws of the game as huge problems.

- Sound direction processing is horrible. It doesnt play the sound direction of where your camera is facing (3rd person head of the model - its turning with the camera), but where the chest of the model is facing. I died countless of times because I trusted too much into the sound and always wondered whats wrong.

- LOTS of hackers, and they get more and more each day. A huge amount of websites offering different hacks for PUBG too, so there obviously is huge interest. 1 hacker in 100 people is sadly pretty common now. And 1 hacker is enough to ruin the game for almost all, if not all other players.

- A lot of teamkillers too, so team modes are very frustrating if you dont have enough people you know to play with.

- FPS are much higher now, but theres still a lot of stuttering and weird flashing screens.

- There are a few keys you cant customize, and for some reason I cant dive anymore in water. However, youre also pretty much invincible if youre in water.

Ran into hackers early on - none recently.
Sound directions is actually a ton better, not experiencing what you are for some reason.
No issues with TK, but I have a group I play with.
Yea, FPS is great now. Last night though huge desync issues, was really frustrating.
They changed water a bit, you can no longer heal in water, you also can't shoot from water. If you are under water you take almost no damage, which makes sense.

There is a really good article on how they did sound. I really like it. The sound actually works the way it should, it bounces off of surfaces. Takes some time to get used to, as it isn't absolute directional like other games. Feels more "real" than other games the way it works.
Nah, sound is bugged. I was only wrong about it being permanent. What I explained is a bug you experience sometimes. I dont think the sound system is good if you cant even sneak silently without boots or if you exactly hear what people do in builds next to yours (opening doors, footsteps, etc).

Doesnt matter if youre underwater, which would make sense, since bullets really dont go far in water, but it also happens if youre on the surface.

Not sure of the water issue you are having, last night a guy was trying to wade in water to be in the finaly circle near the shore. I used a 4x on an SKS and easily popped him. Id have to see what you are talking about.

It isn't a stealth game, I like how the sounds work. You want to kill a team in a house? You have the advantage. Smoke, fire, nades, stuns. Rush the house. We wipe teams out in houses all the time. I never hide in a house I can't jump out of a window/door/ledge.

Being hated pays off for Shkreli: Judge shows pity, grants him separate trial.

And yet the real issue of Big Pharma (here in the US - thank you Canada for the cheap meds btw) stealing from citizens isn't addressed.....

/Not a fan of mary jane, but have been impressed with he use of the oil and extracts in treating some diseases and neurological conditions. Some really cool stuff out there.

How different is this game from H1Z1: King of the Kill? Which one is better?

It's very similar. H1z1:KOTH was also designed by playerunknown, which was also based on his similar ARma mod.

Battlegrounds is a much more finished game. Bullet physics are way better. I mean, google their article on just the shot sound design. It's pretty in depth for just the bullet sounds. Cars don't just blow up either. And you don't have Daybreak involved.

H1Z1 is an arcade survival. You can drive full speed in a vehicle that has terrible physics, jump the veh in the air, jump out of said veh and headshot people before you hit the ground. If you have a vehicle in H1, you will win.

Cars in PUBG are death traps. They are a means to move and that is it. If the vehicle is moving and you try to get out, you will probably die as the vehicle runs you over.

There are a lot of weapons (they are adding more) and they have scarcity. The weapons also have attachments that you must find to increase the stats on your weapon.

You have aim down the sights, lean, iron sights, 4x, ACOG, 8x, and I have only seen a 15x in 2-3 games.

You can win by being rambo, camping, hiding, stealth, or just walking around. Each game is very different depending where it ends up.

There are boats, motorcycles, dune buggy, car, jeep.

There is some destruction being built in the game. Currently doors get blown up by bombing raids and players can also destroy doors.

There are stun grenades, frag nades, and smoke nades. Each have helped me win. Most people don't use them, as it currently is a bit clunky to switch and use quickly.

That is just off the top of my head. I have not played the update yet.

If you played competitive BF2, that is the excitement this game gives me. You can play solo, duo, or a group of 4. The game is an absolute blast, and I look forward to their updates every week and discussing updates and changes with the dev team in their forums. They are all about the player experience and are really killin it.

Thats the curse of EA. Also, once its done, there will be so many pro players, that for a new player it will be hell.
So you might aswell play it now.

The matchmaking will be elo type - you will only be put in matches with others of your "rank". Right now it is just a dump in model - but I watch the kill feed, and top players die early on all the time.

I have won a game where I only had a handgun for the first 15 minutes and I have lost within 5 minutes where I was fully looted up. The loot is RNG for the most part, but high density areas will garner better loot in general.

It is no different than any other game. Took everyone several hours to get going, I would expect a new player would have the same curve. No diff than CoD, BF, any PvP game.

My first win was 70 hours in (probably 35 hours of solo). Now happening alot more frequently.

Pretty impressive the speed that they're addressing issues in EA. And there are a *massive* number of fixes/enhancements listed for this patch.

Yea very impressed, as well as their transparency on the updates and news. They have responded to the tickets I put in on cheaters as well. Game still needs a lot of work, but the effort and speed to which they are addressing everything is pretty awesome.

Over 100 hours int he game for $30, and still EA! 4 solo wins, 2 duo wins.

Things to look forward to:
Performance optimization (this week)
Replay ability in 2D and 3D
New map coming by end of year (when they plan to be out of EA)
