How did I get a duo partner? I didn’t. I just queued randomly, ignored my partner (if I got one at all) and went hiding as my solo guide says. I finished in top 10 68% of the games. Finally, after mere 28 games I got on the top 1000:
While I expected good results, this is better than my solo result, I’m climbing faster! Why? Because teams play more aggressively, so hiding helps even more. They die very fast to each other while I’m hiding somewhere. This aggressive play is not necessarily a decision. If 4 solo players are around and one spots another, 2 will fight. If 2×2 are around, everyone engages.
I really hope that this result convinces everyone that PUBG is a hiding game and not a shooting game.
However I have plan B if the “ima better cuz i got killz at school” (while in bottom 50%) kids are still around. I’ll form a “clan”, a group of players who also prefer hiding and we’ll play pre-made squads. All 4 of us will land at different places, we’ll play independently, because as long as just one of us lives, the team lives and all of us get the high result from the last survivor. With this strategy I expect top 10 in the infamous squads.
