Played 3 games of duos last night. Got a 3rd place and 4th place with 4 kills and 3 kills, which felt good. Died both times to just being outnumbered.

Still never won :lol:

Played my first two games yesterday.

First, solo. Spent five minutes wandering around before I found anyone. Killed one, then got killed. Finished 29th.

Then I decided to try a squad match. One team mate launched from the bus, so I followed. Quickly caught up with him once we landed, and he immediately shot me dead.

Not really feeling much incentive to try it again.

This is the death of intelligence

That's a shame I think it's a fantastic game and amazing in a group.

Won my first full squad game last night:



And won (won is a very strong term here) my first solo this evening. Ignore the conversation with the missus if you can...

I've yet to experience any TKing, although I only play squad/duos with friends (so in squads that meant 2 randomers max)

SMG's getting increase in power is a good thing, I never ever pick them up because they are like shooting air at players.

Played this a bit last night and I think I'm starting to dislike it. The main problem right now is that the map is just too small. Played 5 games going to the remotest parts of the island and furthest away from bus as possible and still ended up being done in by 2-3 other duo's. We gave up after a while conceding that we couldn't find anywhere that was queit for more than 5minutes.

Also, SMG's are still awful.

Got two kills from sitting in the rafters of a barn with a blue SMG and murderising a duo who ran inside. It shredded them B)

You'd get same results with a shotgun, I think they are largely pointless tbh.

I do worse with shotguns in general - their lack of ammo is concerning. I find the non semi-auto shotgun especially useless

Won my 2nd ever solo this eve. I tried to build up to the top of a mountain, and was one set of materials short of making the summit. I jumped, just missed the landing and lost 98 health. Full shield and spare shields but no bandages so spent the rest of the game just trying to survive and find bandages. I found none but managed to get to the final 2 with some nice weapons, above some other guy and armed with a rocket launcher. Extremely lucky!
