Until this error is fixed, I see no point in trying to increase my rating, which means abandoning attempts until next reset. I understand that PUBG is “early access” but it should mean “some features are missing” instead of “unplayable”.
However I can use this season to practice some killing. During the 45 games I played, I’ve encountered 4 other players and won only once. One of the deaths was not PvP skill related (I had no weapon) but the other was and the third was outright lame. I won’t play much time this season but PvP oriented games are fast.
I wouldn’t recommend this kind of play and wouldn’t do it if I could just play normally, but crashes deny that. The alternative of going lolPvP-moron for September would be either insane amount of grinding (every crash means another 2 hours just to get back) or completely abandoning PUBG. I don’t want that because the game concept is great and PUBG is the most successful game on Steam, ergo any project on it is relevant.
If you happen to know some trick to deal with this bug, feel free to comment. Maybe it’s related to some hardware. If you know some short term game worthy of attention, comment too.
Update: I already did some games and the initial results are “hopeless”. There is simply so big skill difference in shooting that I can’t hope to ever bridge. I need to focus on positioning + surprise shooting and covering fire + retreat. If we actually exchanging bullets, I’m dead.
