PUBG Launches

The countdown is up, and PLAYERUNKNOWN'S BATTLEGROUNDS version 1.0 is now officially available on Steam following an extremely successful early access run that saw this battle royale game sell more than 20 million copies and set records for concurrent users on Steam. This Steam post covers the release, revealing a special "winner winner, chicken dinner" in-game t-shirt all players will get for free for logging in over the next few weeks. They say balancing and polishing the game will continue past this point, and talk about other improvements coming to the game:

We’ve implemented two waves of adjustments to deal with server stability issues since PC 1.0 test build #3 hit our test servers. We estimate that there was around 50% decrease in stability issues experiences by players. However, we understand that this is not enough. We have identified various causes for the stability issues and are expecting progressive improvements going forward.

As we announced earlier, we are considering limiting maximum ping depending on user network status in order to establish a smooth gameplay environment and enhance server stability. Before applying the measure to all regions, we will need to fully investigate its feasibility and analyze the outcome, so we will be running a limited test. After implementation, players with a high ping difference from average ping range for the region or players connecting over long distance will not be able to connect to a match. As a result, only players in a certain ping range would be able to enjoy the game together in the same server which leads to a more stable and smooth environment. We will keep you updated on our progress as we continue looking into this method and analyzing our results.

We’ve strengthened cheat prevention measures and continue to reinforce them. We’ve also implemented various automatic and manual anti-cheat measures and thanks to all these actions have seen an estimated reduction of 65.7% in the number of players trying to use cheats. We are also continuing to actively remove banned players from our leaderboards. No online multiplayer game can remove all cheaters but we will continue to direct our best efforts towards reducing the number of cheaters as much as possible and maintaining a fair play environment.

The new map and update are really running way better than before.
My roommate and I have nearly 20 fps increase and things just feel smoother in general.
Vaulting is a huge game change too.

Fired it up this AM - started a game, intentionally did not play BETA so I could play the new map with the update.

Join a game, gets stuck at title screen, but I can hear people talking and the plane in the background. ALT-F4, went and got something to eat. Came back, figured I would try it again as I read they were having lots of issues with the 1.0 servers.

Get to title screen, says game is still in progress!? hahaha figured my AFK ass would be dead instantly. I load up the game, I am near the southern coast all by myself. I run and find some ok loot right away. 25 left! I run my tail off, stay on the blue line, find some houses that have not been looted, weird. End up getting a few kills along the way and get 2nd level gear.

Do the belly crawl near last few circles since I don't have a sight, just a couple ACOGs. Grabbed a silenced ump off some dude I killed.

Ended up with 3 kills and 2nd place. Circle favored the other guy, he had a rock. gg. This is why the game is awesome.

It isn't a twitch game. You can be tactical.

Yep! Game is great in spite of it's issues. On twitch I watch Notthatwillsmith because like me he is a terrible shot/twitch gamer, who misses pickups on the ground because he is probably legally blind, but has an awesome winrate with his buddies because he makes good tactical decisions. And because there is no crafting/building, tactical decisions is all you make. (Basic stuff from Arma like how to use terrain will keep you alive a lot of the time).

It's the same as the Arma experience, 20 minutes of looting/walking with a chance of a surprise violent end except much less of a pain to set up and replay.

There was a problem with the leaderboards, so I got to rank 29 last night in OCE duo due to the actual good people not having their shit recorded for a few hours. I'll enjoy that and the sick new replay feature showing how awesome/lucky we were while I settle back down to my natural spot a few tens of thousands positions lower...

Game is much better optimised now. Had a few games without lag at the start, and a few with that still wasn't as bad as the test server lag. I'm sure they will work it out eventually.
