I first heard about Player Unknowns BattleGrounds from a friend. He suggested I check it out but didn’t really consider it at first because the other battle royal game I tried (fort nite) I did not like. I watch a group called Viva La Dirt League on YouTube. They have a sketch channel devoted to PUBG and I bing watched all of it. I even watched one of them stream before I decided I would give it a try.
So I purchased the game for PS4 and gave it a try. I played a few games before I had my first solo chicken dinner! Even after that I had a hard time getting into it at first, but now I look forward to playing. I wouldn’t describe myself as an amazing player by any means but I enjoy the challenge.
About that same time I also discovered PUBG Mobile. I downloaded it onto my tablet. I jumped into a quick match accidentally joined a team battle royale. After fumbling with the controls for a minute I teamed up with one of my squad mates. Before long we got separated and met up again at the end of the match. Our squad won and I got my first mobile chicken dinner!
Then today I had a minute and I decided to try a solo match. Early on I had a few close encounters in buildings but my shotgun made short work of them. One of the enemies I encountered had an AK with 4X scope so I snagged that and it was my staple for the duration of the match.
As the numbers dwindled to the final four I was stuck in the middle of a fire fight but somehow came out on top. Finally, the last player made a dash for an air drop and when he stopped to loot it I got him at a distance. With that I had my second Mobile Chicken Dinner and it was only my second game…
That raises questions about my victories… Are my back to back victories flukes? Perhaps I’m playing with brand new players who are as familiar with the game. Maybe those same new players are having a harder time acclimating to the platforms controls? Maybe it’s a little bit of all of that? Either way two victories in my first two games feels good!
