After the 15 millions sales a couple of days ago, PUBG reached over 2 million CCU on Steam.

I would go as far as saying 3mil.
There SHOULD be big patches coming soon and if those add/fix the major problems (vaulting in 1month) then it might add a lot more people.

I'd love a Mode/Sever where all eliminated players/teamsare brought into a directed spectator mode for the rest of the match, with voice chat and easy muting.
(e.g.anyone muted by x% would be auto muted for all players)

It would be a commitment to play in a match and give the match more weight, less throwaway.

It would the volume of games you can play, so it should increase the point payout.

And add a Salty bet function to bet against you're fellow viewers.


I'm sure that wouldn't work for myriad reasons, but a fun idea.

Gears of War 1 was like this and it was so hype back in the day.

Nah

Other games get a thread when they reach milestones, so a game that keeps reaching new milestones deserves a thread for each accomplishment.

I'm sick so I finally watched summit1g play this all yesterday.

I'm going to be honest. The game looks kind of dumb. You spend so much time looting. Die. Repeat.

I can see the thrill people get from it but the game itself looks.like it could be improved so much.

Next milestones should be:

Concurrent players: 2.5 million, 3 million.

Sales: 20 million.

Personally I'm getting a little bit burnt out after 190 hours. Luckily I have Fortnite to mix things up a bit.

Matches can be anywhere from 30 seconds to 30 minutes depending on how long you survive. What keeps people coming back is that "just one more game" mentality. You can be having an awesome game. You get into the top 5. You get so close to winning.... but maybe you make a stupid mistake and die. You think "next game, I won't make that mistake" and you try again. And again. And again and again and againasfaskdfjalksblblblblblblblblb.

I believe (from what I've read) there was a sizeable army of bot players just farming battle points (in game currency) to purchase loot boxes, to get points to open crates and then sell the items on the steam market place.

It's either...

"I / We placed [PLACEMENT HERE] last match, we can do better!"

or

"I / We had a chicken dinner! Come on, I / we can't stop now!"

If GOTY was based on impact alone, this will would win without a doubt.

But good thing it has more things going for itself than just impact alone.

I can't see a game more deserting of the GOTY crown. Shame that other publications won't even consider it since it's still in early access, which I think makes all its accomplishments more impressive.

Depends on how fast you die. Its usually under 35 for a win.

Shouldn't be an issue if the game leaves early access before 2018, as they have planned.
