I played this game for the first time tonight, I have watched PubG for a while but dont own a good pc. I played a few matches and did ok, but got wrecked a few times too...then this match happened.

I found myself in a barn, holding out to see where the death circle would move when I heard an enemy enter the barn. He ran towards me shooting wildly and I was able to put him to rest barely. Interestingly, he actually had a rocket launcher on him so I took that. He sent me a message saying good luck and hoped I did well(I figured it was a salty message) but the guy sas genuinely nice. At this point, there is roughly 50 people left.

I move towards a mountain area and wait for people to die off. There is about 10 people now, so it starts getting intense, I get in a gunfight, and am able to survive with 20% health but no medkits, someone else killed the guy I was shooting at.

I find myself with my back against a wall, basically hyperventalating(definitely spelled wrong) and there is only 3 people left. I see one guy poke his head around the corner, I panic and shoot and kill him, thankfully I don't think he saw me. Now, it's me and one other guy.

I hear him putting up a barricade and decide I have to investigate regardless of my low life. I take a couple assault rifle shots at him but he sees me and runs around the corner. That's when I had a genuine moment oh ahah, I pulled out the rocket launcher and took the one shot I had around the corner killing him for the win!

This may have been longer than I meant but I genuinely love this game, so thank you to both the devs and the great community so far.

Glad to hear you're having a good time! Love these #MyFirstUmbrella stories :)

Welcome to the umbrella club.

3rd game in a row with a friend and the match has crashed again for all players.

Any news on this? Im guessing its due to the amount of players trying to play/login atm.

We're tracking a number of infrequent server crashes and are working quickly to prepare a server update with fixes for these. Sorry for the inconvenience in the meantime.

Like many new players today, I downloaded and dived into the game.
Heck, I even streamed the game, like what Epic Games was planning for!
I streamed it on YouTube and I thought almost every moment was pretty interesting.

The gameplay was smooth, graphics so pretty and colors popping up really nicely.
I’m not super good in FPS, think and react really slow but I had a blast!
The highest I ranked was 5th and that was good enough for me.
The guy that killed me placed 1st so I’m glad.

See you guys in the storm!

Happy to hear you’ve enjoyed yourself!

25mins waiting to log in. Failed to log in to playstation account. Retry? Yes. New wait time 32mins???? Is this a joke? Why should I have to wait 32mins to log in after waiting 25mins already?

We have an update thread going here, again we’re looking into it. Sorry you’re having trouble.

It is true that we have put a lot of marketing emphasis on Battle Royale recently. It is important that we give Battle Royale the attention it deserves...

If you’re going to make a competitive 3rd person game you can’t give an advantage to a player pushing you on the left side. As of now your crosshair and camera angle is leaning to the right. You need to be able to switch perspectives back and forth. Right now if you are being pushed on a left corner of a building the other player will see you before you see him due to him pushing right.

This is something we’re already actively discussing, in addition to a number of other camera related options/adjustments.

Sony has flat out denied a refund stating it is against their Terms of Service despite the email I have from Epic support stating they reached out to all partners and it should not be any issue.

Reach back out to our Player Support team. Again, we’ll make sure you’re refunded. It may take longer than usual, but we’ll take care of you.

Are weapon / loot spawns randomized? I assume they are, just checking.

Yes they are.

Battle Royale The New Fortnite
I would definitely recommend checking out the new mode if you haven't. If you are great at building it Fortnite, you can be a king in Battle Royale.

Do i need PS Plus to play it?

No you do not need PS Plus. Players on Xbox do need Xbox Live Gold.

This was a bug with our initial server deployment and was quickly hotfixed after a few games.

If you played early enough, we hope you enjoyed the temporary showers of arsenal-filled crates. :) Please shout out if you see anything similar going forward.

All newcomers to the game, not just from tomorrow, will be googling this subreddit and be expecting battle royale discussions.

Instead of filtering it away, why not just embrace BR to this subreddit for what it is? Let the upvote system determine what the USERS of this subreddit want to read. Not Epic, not the mods. The users.

I’m gonna jump in and co-sign the part about Epic not being a part of whatever the decision is here. There’s a BR specific subreddit and we’ll support those folks the same way we do here, but ultimately this is your community and it’s up to the mods and community in terms of whether or not you’d like to totally split out this discussion or have both PVE/PVP coexist here.

Does hitting different parts of the body increase / decrease damage? For example, a headshot doing more damage vs a shot to the knee..

Hitting headshots does output more damage than body shots.

When i sent my refund request to Epic they told me to contact Sony. which we know how smooth that goes. I told Epic support they denied my request and asked for help. This was last week and no one ever emailed back. How can I be sure my request is still open and will be worked on?

Yeah just ping our Player Support team again and follow up.

I have a question. Someone know if they will add vehicles maybe? Some sort of funny motors or others just to match this mode and overall game style?

We are prototyping ideas but nothing is concrete. We’ll update when we have some more information to share about vehicles.

I just wanted to know is there cross play between pc and PS4 like with paragon if so can I (PS4) squad up with friends on pc?

There is only cross-progression, no cross-play.
