I have 220,000 renown and a Y3 battle pass.. I'm trying to talk myself out of buying the 50 alpha packs for 180,000.. I have all OPs and by the time the new ones are out, I'll have enough to buy them. Ugh.

You'll still have enough. So why not? Only thing is you can wait for the season to flip and maybe get new legendary skins if you do.

I’m hyped for the new operators. Haven’t been hyped for new OPs since Finka and Lion

Its been a while since I played this with only small bursts with operation launches. I have no idea what's changed in the meta, how is it now?

Are there others like me who arent into battle royale games/modes? I prefer things more equal chance. based more on skill rather than luck. The random luck pf where you land, what weapons you find etc tend to annoy me.

Also dissapointed that we have to wait till season 2 till pick & ban gets implemented. It was a huge hit, why not just implement it straight away?!

I get where you come from, but it's the same appeal as with any game of chance: the kick of not knowing what you get. Sometimes you get something amazing, sometimes you only get shit. But it raises the thrill nonetheless.

Also games with completely equal chances can tend to get dull very quick since one mistake can usually decide a match very early.
That's also why Modern Warfare 2 is regarded by some as the best CoD to date: everything was so hilariously unbalanced and overpowered that everyone gets on either end of the shit-stick that is an akimbo shotgun or killstreak eventually.

To me BR and Siege have kind of similar appeals. They both put you in highly dynamic and novel situations where you are solving a puzzle in real time in order to succeed. Siege does it with destruction and operator abilities. Those 1v3 clutches where you just knew exactly what everyone on the other team was going to do and why, and the one thing they didn't see that you used to your advantage.

BR, using PUBG as the example, does a similar thing with random loot and circles. Early drop situations are more interesting compared to say a loadout based game, because players have to adapt to what they find and what they see the other players doing. The luck factor is overstated. It mostly applies to hot drops which are easy to opt out of. And in most BR games there is a skill to landing first at a location.

In late game the circle keeps things very interesting, you need to process what cover is in the next circle, how to get there, where people are likely coming from and where they're going to go. Sure, sometimes you make the right call and it doesn't quite work out. But when I look at a late game situation in PUBG that I lost, usually there's something I could/should have done better that is the primary reason I died. I made a stupid assumption, I moved too early, I moved too late. Yeah sometimes you just lose a gunfight, or sometimes you get screwed because other players play irrationally. But that happens in games without "RNG" as well.

Pegasus Actual thats a really interesting way to put it. I love reading post like this that make me think about things in a new way and alter my viewpoint. Maybe its time for me finally play the PS4 copy of PUBG I've bought. I did the training but it looked like shit on PS4 and for some reason I didnt start a match.

OG Kush Unfortunately I can't really recommend console PUBG because of just how crappy it runs. It is ugly, sure... but the frame rate is also bad and if you learn how to drop quickly, you'll be offset by the console version's inability to load assets in a timely fashion and you might fall through the map, or get stuck in geometry. Or get shot by someone who landed after you, and picked up the loot you landed directly on, but didn't see since it didn't spawn in yet.

All the other console BRs are superior on a technical level, but they don't have the same strategic/tactical depth.

I mean, you did already buy it thought so may as well try it!

Just do yourself a favor and play Apex Legends instead playing PUBG on console...

I really wanna get back to the game but don’t know how much it’s worth it going in alone
I had like 20ish hours of legitimate fun just flying around the map collecting all the weapons and attachments.
Story isn't amazing or anything but had a good length and the gameplay mechanics are so good it makes it fun regardless of being solo.
On PS4 just a few weeks ago I was still finding co-op players easily as well to help finish the Platinum off.

PVP is also fun every now and then.

And then even after Platinum and finishing the event mission I still got a couple hours more out of it just messing with photo mode and Siege characters.






Honestly of all those types of games Wildlands has been the best value for time and enjoyment.
I actually should look if it has my time played stats.

Edit:17 hours in aircraft
5 hours in cars
5 hours using the drone....

Yeah, I do play BRs but Siege is one of my antidote games for when the randomness and all the running/looting is pissing me off. Nice to just have a game with set spawns and a simple 5v5 LMS mode where you are guaranteed action.

Also the pick and ban not coming till Season 2 is a huge bummer. It was such a fun playlist. I wonder if they are doing it so people don't just immediately ban new operators, but that would be the same for every new season I guess. Also the new operators don't really seem broken in anyway, I'm still playing the TTS almost every night and I love them and what they add to the game.

Mostly playing PUBG during the last months. But played some rounds a few days ago. Still love this game and will definitely play some more Still love it to randomly place my Kapkan traps all over the map away from the objective. After all this time it somehow still works xD

It always works. Especially if you play against a dumb rushing team

Still haven't got my charm from the new Twitch streamer ones.

I know I'm linked since I get all the drops from the invitational and such.


I'm dumb I just saw it doesn't come until the new season

Re: Apex Legends ping system in Siege:

"For instance, maybe when I ping a wall I can open up a contextual wheel to select what to do, or alternatively be able to ping something like a Mute jammer.
At some point we are probably going to implement this kind of system, because it’s part of what Siege is, being a team game.
“We are just talking at the moment; it’s just a concept. It’s not a priority for this project but we’ve been looking at Apex and it is just amazing the way they have implemented it. At some point we are probably going to implement this kind of system, because it’s part of what Siege is, being a team game.

https://stevivor.com/features/interviews/rainbow-six-siege-wants-an-apex-legends-contextual-ping-system/

This EXACT idea (PING WHEEL) was posted on the Rainbow Six sub, and acknowledged by the community leads, back in 2016.
I remember the user who posted the suggestion even drafted a mockup UI. And back then they said it wasn't a priority either.
I expect we might see something similar in SIege in 1-2 years from now if they're only just opening up to the idea.

Yeah, the Apex ping system is amazing, but should hardly be needed to kickstart the idea with Siege... a ping wheel is a simple and obvious QOL improvement. It's the sort of thing that could have been prototyped in a couple of days if they were a more... flexible dev.

They could go all out and do a lot of what Apex does, with voice acting, thank yous, and all that shit but it's not strictly necessary. We just need to be able to ask for soft breaches, hard breaches, EMP/countermeasures, and enemies. I'm sure there are a couple of more. And maybe it would be cool if the menu showed each of your teammates, so you can ask for their specific thing, but again, I don't think that's strictly necessary.

Since they seem to be making a big push in making the experience for new players better, this really should be a priority. Someone pings a wall, if you don't have much experience in the game you're going to assume they want you to reinforce it and not impact nade it.

I wouldn't implement Apex style pinging into say PUBG as it's a touch arcadey and a little too effective compared to 'real' callouts, but I think for Siege it works.

Just picked this up (took the edition with year 1 and bought year 4 afterwards) and I'm having tons of fun with it.

Do I automatically have all the maps and stuff ? also where are the Y4 operators ? The list goes only up to Y3?

Are there people in here willing to play with a noob in casual mode ? :)

Kwigo All maps are free and you automatically have them. They are included in patches that are required by all users. Y4 is just starting now so no operators have been released. A Year is made up for 4 seasons. 2 operators are released per season alongside a new map or map update/rework. Year 4 season 1 will launch sometime this month.

It should be this week, no? Kwigo the only stuff you have to unlock are the base ops, and they're VERY cheap. Everyone had to unlock them except for people that bought the game for about half of last year.

Apex pings would be nice, not necessary maybe but certainly cool and I would be totally fine if they went for it. it'd definitely be nice in casual (or teammates that don't use mic. had an asshole last night mad that I didn't read his mind when he repeatedly pinged someone).

Apex style ping system would be great; I remember the early calls for something similar years back too. Even just an option for tap button 'generic ping' or slight hold 'enemy sighted/breach this' would suffice.

I have a vega 65 and it seems a lot of users (including me) are reporting weird vertical lines and graphical artifacts with the last update. Not attributed to our graphic settings. Anyone if this will be fixed with the next update?

I just bought the game via the Xbox sale and I’m loving it. I known this maybe too early to ask yet has Ubisoft committing to a year 5?

So my most used operator by far is Thermite. Even after all this time it's shocking how many people don't pick him or Hibana. Note, I mostly play casual and I'm level 250.

just bought the gold edition on pc. how can I get the year 2/3 passes?
clikc operators and unlock new operators. scroll down and it has the bundles of those ops.

If you need any tips or people to play with there's a discord in the OP I believe, or just post here we're pretty friendly and it's fun to play with new people and teach the ropes

EDIT: Y3 ops might not show up there yet in a bundle since that season isn't officially over until Burnt Horizon comes out this week.

But Y1 and Y2 should be in bundles. you may want to wait o nthose as well though since we're getting scaling pricing in the same patch. It may save you a few bucks to wait like 2 days. Like the oldest ops are gonna be less than half their current cost in Renown, so I'm assuming in R6 credits as well.
