Oh, was it 100$? I couldn't recall exactly. The quests for legendary weapons didn't bother me terribly much. My initial legendaries hadn't worn out by the time I finished the quests to get the schematics up to legendary level.

Major update Survive the Storm dropped earlier this week. Even if you aren't actively playing right now you should still log in to get the "Month One" rewards which will disappear when the special event ends. Rewards are 25 armory (inventory) slots, 10 backpack slots, 1 people llama and 1 weapon llama.

PvP?  I do not know why that exists.  I'm not even going to read that.

They're trying to get into the PUBG arena, which Epic helped the devs for that game create, and why the PUBG devs are now upset with Epic for doing it.

Which one? Fortnite or PUBG? Or both?  why so serious?

Tried the free battle royale mode on the PC. TF2 to CSGO as Fortnite to PUBG?  Sort of?  Too small a map, I couldn't stealth out as easy.

You know they're onto something when there's a front page story on WSJ.com about the game. Still every PS4 owner I know who plays this desperately wants to play PUBG.

It's harder, more frustrating and somehow the better game.

I'd sort of hit the end of my interest back when it was a PvE base defense game. Now that it seems to have morphed into some sort of PvP battle royale game, I'm even less inclined to pick it back up.

Seriously, this game is Player Unknown's Battlegrounds, but bad. WoW graphics and jumping idiots everywhere. The building part disappears in this bullshit. Stop caring about this game.

Seriously? We are back in 2005 and the debate between cartoonish and realistic graphics?
Anyway, when I said "This game is PUBG but bad" I was not comparing graphics. Just saying that I could not care less about another game with cartoonish graphics when there is A) already a better version of the same game... And B) ... which wasn't made for preschoolers.

Falc, you wouldn't know fun if it came up and bit ya in the ass. :P

PUBG is slow. Like painfully slow. The map is too big. The end game is good though. Just takes too long to get there. And I used to play DayZ and can handle downtimes in my PvP games. Fortnite is fast paced, the building adds another dimension, and it's smooth. I find there are enough bad players to make me sorta feel like I'm decent at scooters again. Sniping is super fun. You guys can hate and call it a kids game, and a lot of kids do play it, but I'll be over here having a great time.

Hmm, Iíll have to give Fortnite a try when I finally escape the mountains of Japan without being eaten by an Oni or something.  I think Iíve made my opinions of PUBG known, and I really donít want to shit on anybody enjoying it because I thought I did for awhile (and great for you if it hits all your buttons).  But, IMO, there are just too many flaws in the base gameplay (A lot of what Slayerik mentioned) for me to get any real enjoyment out of it.  I realllllly want to like this genre.  Maybe this one will work.

I recommend watching a few Twitch streams to help you learn a few loot chest locations and basic tactics. I've really improved my gameplay from just watching them and killing time. My favorite streamers are Dakotaz (streams like 4:00am - 11:00am EST), High Distortion (Plays Solo squads, basically him vrs a ton of teams of 4 - mid-afternoon EST), Ninja (most popular and insanely skilled, regularly has 120k+ viewers). You can get a feel for the bullet drop on snipers and stuff, learn the weapons everyone uses (cause they are the best). Little things like drinking your small shields before the large shield potions (Small shields max out at 50, large can be used at 50).

My biggest problem is building. I find myself wanting to treat it like any other shooter, and it's not. I do way better when I throw up some quick cover for myself, and then fight. But my brain still says SHOOT THE BAD GUY NOW and half the time I forget.

Cant argue with the popularity of Fortnite (we could argue it in the you know 'battle royale' thread in this very forumcoughcough), but yeah I dont get the allure. It's cartoonish, the building mechanic is fucking STUPID and just feels like a game for kids.

PUBG is stupidly hard, is semi-realistic and has no silly building mechanic (seriously wtf). Try sniping someone at 400m and accounting for bullet drop. Best played in a squad, with vehicles. Vehicles are fun, or hilariously failures.  Bluehole needs to get better fucking coders though, it can be buggy at times.

Bullet drop is a thing in Fortnite as well. Have you played it?

Yeah I have, and I get there is some of that but it's not on the level of pubg. 

Plus there's the whole, 'I'm being shot! quick spin around and build a castle' mechanic which I cant stand. shrug, both games are popular. Fortnite is the big winner but I'm enjoying the fuck out of PUBG and simply can't get into Fortnite. Bluehole just needs to hire some better fucking coders.

The mobile version of this is now the #1 app, not just #1 game, for iOS, not it's not even fully released yet.  I would think even more money hats will be worn by Epic's people once the Android version goes live.

I just came in here because I'm avoiding work.  I build forts in Fortnite and let the 3 randos (who are all in middle school) shoot the husks.  I don't play PvP.  I'm not sure how BR games can be fun and I'm not inclined to try.

It's kinda hilarious but also kinda good actually that Epic is probably going to eat PUBG's lunch because they know/appreciate what polish/stability/performance means for a game. The F2P thing is probably a huge factor over PUBG but the fact that Fortnite doesn't run like dogshit where PUBG does I think probably helps people with shitty PCs get into the game.

I imagine this takes the sting right out of their spending millions on Paragon.
