Last week Bluehole were getting a little bit shitty that someone stole the idea that they stole.
Epic have gone out and made a PUBG clone and already put it out as F2P on PC/XB1/PS4.

I don't have much experience with PUBG. I've sat and watched my kids play it. I don't really understand why it's blowing up so big.
Anyhow, I've downloaded Fortnite on both XB1/PS4 and it seems ok for a bit of meaningless fun I guess.
I managed to get a 6th place on one game. I've only killed one person in 5 games so far. :lol:

Epics take has more depth, thanks to the building mechanic carried over.

It's Epic's engine/code as the base for both games, although Fortnight runs a lot better than PUBG.

Interesting twist, I don't understand myself the huge popularity of the battle royal idea, It just it involves a lot of running and waiting imo. The action in this game mode is quite limited, I guess it's the thrill of survival, but we had last man standing game modes in DM games prior.

Its all about the circle.

Is that new or has that been done before? I have no idea.

Wish it was 1st person, for some reason I play 3rd person games with the default sick layout instead of southpaw, and I just can't aim for shit.
I played about 6 games last night and got smoked every time.

Gonna keep at it though, looks pretty cool.

I thought I read that battleground style of game was a mod, then the guy who made that mod was employed to do the same thing for H1Z1 and then he left to create a stand-alone version with Bluehole. I'm not sure anyone copied anyone. I think it's all the same bloke.

Yeah, I'm also downloading the XB1 version. I doubt it'll be better than Playerunknown's but I'll give it a go.

I might yet. I have one or two friends on LIVE that don't Master Race. I'll just guinea pig it for them.

Just played a few rounds. 1st game I died with no kills (ranked 22nd) 2nd game I got my first kill (ranked 19th) 3rd game I got 4 kills within the first 2 minutes of landing then died (ranked 72nd). Game runs smooth as, no lag either, haven't bothered trying to build anything yet, I assume it's best to work your way to the center asap and build a fort. Fog/storm rolls around fast after the initial appearance decreasing the playing area every 1&1/2mins.

I think I'll play this a little more after the weekend, see how it's come along community wise. Atm, games are full within a minute so not bad at all.

I like fortnite more not sure why since its the same but it does run much better so maybe that's it. I'm equally shit at both.

It must be a3rd person thing, but I cannot aim in this game... Playing southpaw now so I should be right but if I'm in a close quarters fight I wiff all over the place.

In halo I feel I have total control, I can't put my finger on why but I'm all over the place in this game, even with the shotty... As a result I stink at it!

First win!

I hid in the shrubs like a little bitch, 2 kills for 1st place... Those shrubs are OP, they will have to do something about that.

The last guy had all the cover and weapons, I had a shrub... I waited till he was right in front if me.
So cheap, I feel dirty.

He had to move , did everything right except for checking the bushes but even then, the only way to do that is by firing bullets into them giving away your position.

Bushes are OP, they have to make it so you can't clip into them

Getting used to the guns and controls now... Loving this game!

I was actually watching a streamer come up against a cheat with aim bot, you can have your master race if this crap is common on PC.
