    The adrenaline of the Chicken dinner is really why I love to play the game. The model is simple and fun, a great way to blow off some steam.

    I just bought this after loads of people badgered me into it. I am not sure but since I like fps games for a bit of mindless fun this may work

    You could also look at it from another viewpoint, it gets boring very fast.

    Wow this game is going places. Maybe I should give it a try one of these days. My aim isn't what it used to be, but my will would make up for it! :sunglasses:

    Tons of difficult to detect cheats,that attracts a lot of gamer's.Even the simple recoil script is an advantage to aiming with multiple shots.Trigger bots ..lol you won't know the difference,you'll think mad aiming skills.

    When i last played COD a game i loved,it got to the point there was at least one cheat in every single match,so i just quit fps for good.

    Here is something laughable,their anti cheat is banning 42,000 a day and it is not even good anti cheat,imagine how many it is not catching.Personally,i would just stay away because the really good scripts that are not openly shared online will almost never get detected.

    Good game when played fairly.

    Sadly its subject to rampant cheating and when playing against players that run 3rd party cheats or lag switching, its lame.

    Yeah that's the reason I'd rather wait for a PS4 release.

    I wouldn't say the game is great. The PUBG group better be thanking Twitch streamers/Youtubers/others for how amusing they make the game look.

    Yup wait out the 99 other people then try to kill the last guy . That is of course if you make it to that last circle ;)

    They've also officially banned 1.5 million cheaters which must be close to being another record.

    People are bitching about the lack of region lock to keep Chinese hackers out who exploit the latency; though I have a feeling even if they did region lock the game the hackers would still persist.

    bc it's purely pvp.
    if you are a pve player, no need to understand it :)

    ah, and explains why the steam VAC bans raised to.... ungodly heights lately :open_mouth:

    Cuz its the one game where you can say the "N" Word on and other things and not get banned. More Less an adult game people trash talk, being anonymous and fighting people, ruining peoples days in a 1 man vs squad is fun... Only complaint character creation and costumes need to be improved.

    Well I tried it last night, rampant cheats would explain a couple of my deaths but to be honest I watch death cams on most and they looked fair...

    I dont get how you can't. Look how popular CoD use to be, it was only a matter of time till someone made a game that really got the people playing it and talking about it. With that said this has to be chump change compared to CoD during its peak of popularity.

    Did you see how badly it went on Xbox? i mean maybe its better then since i havnt seen recent footage of it. on release it was maxing 15fps or so on the newest console/strongest can only imagine wat would happen on ps4 not saying its not a strong system not that i know the stats of either but in any case i dont see it happening since we havnt heard what kind of numbers they are getting on xbox.

    You can. As someone who's also terrible at aiming I can vouch. Wona game once by hiding under a tractor for 10 minuets. Then crept slowly around a mountain before shooting the last guy in the side while he was looking another direction, missed him twice, shot 3 times the entire game.


    Granted being good at shooting makes the game ALOT easier. I spend games geting eleminated early in gunfights right off the plane, but it is an FPS. It's also fun sometimes just to run into the mess with a pistol and see what happens. That's another reason the game is so popular, you can get into a gun-fight, die, and be dropping in on the next game in three or four mins.
