|New patch has things running a bit smoother on the x. Shooting is also much easier with the recoil reduction, only did one round and got 2nd place. Should have won but the last guy attacked me as soon as I killed 3rd place and I got killed trying to reload.|

Is it possible to view how many people are still on the plane before you jump? Or look in 1st person on the plane?

@Theshape80 There's no way to see exactly, but you can guesstimate it by looking at the back of the plane.
You should be able to go into 1st person in the plane - you can on PC by pressing 'V', so whatever button it is on Xbox should work?
The more I play this the more I hate it unfortunately. Chasing circles and wrestling with the controls when shooting and getting shot from completely hidden people is getting old.
Shouldn't need the to chase circles really, if you land fairly centrally you shouldn't have to move too much. The shooting is much easier after today's patch it seemed to me, but thats playing on the X where the performance is pretty solid now.
Tried last night after reading about the new patch, but it seemee more juddery for me using my X.
Only to start with though, then it mostly settled down. The textures loaded in much better though.
I still only got sub-40 once after not much luck with scavenging.
I also got killed in 98th place- my worst ever. Someone got lucky with a shotty in a different room having entered by another door.† Sadly, the first loot i found was a lev 2 backpack, which unfortunately, isn't much help in a gunfight.
I got luckier the first time i had to duke it out with someone else who found the same house as I at the start.
Played duos the other day and my mate didn't land near me, had 2 people chasing me punching me. I grabbed a shotgun and the hunted became the hunter, got both of the bastards.
@StaffyDog overwatch is also available.
Had my first frying pan kill last night. Died straight after in the 90s but it was worth it!

Shooting seems markedly improved since the 2nd patch. When I first got the game I just wanted to be the last man standing now I go looking for gunfights where possible especially if I have a shit load out as id rather die at that point than end up in the final 10 with no scopes etc. Albeit the final couple of circles are mainly about positioning and being a sneaky git.
This game makes me want to get a decent pc again.

Tweaking the control settings can make a difference to the gunplay for the better as the default settings are bloody awful.
I've set mine as follows, the top four sliders set to three and all the others set to one, for me this makes close quarter and medium range encounters more manageable as I swear there is some sort of look/aim acceleration bug.
I had a quick go on this earlier for the first time. First game, I died almost immediately - I think I ended up 94th! I parachuted down to a small settlement (I changed my mind from a slightly larger one nearby on the way down), entered a house, picked some stuff up off the floor and, feeling suitably tooled-up, opened the bathroom door.
Some git was lying wait for me - they'd entered the house, left everything untouched, and then closed all the doors behind them! Cheeky bugger.
Second game went much better, and I ended up fifth with a single kill. At one point, with maybe 25 people left in the game, I was running across an open field to reach the circle, the whole time thinking "this is a bad idea, this is a bad idea, this is a bad idea," and eventually reached a little concrete roofless hut in the centre of the field, just inside the circumference of the safe area. I decided to hole up there for a couple of minutes, until someone else clearly had the same idea. Luckily, I got the jump on them!
I got into the top ten as the next circle was closing on a small settlement just nearby. I decided to wait until the last moment before moving in, got to the area just as the next circle was added to the map (so hoped everyone else had moved on), and then explored a house. Again, I decided to wait in the house until the last moments to move into the next circle, but someone saw me through a window and naded me
T'was good fun though, and hopefully I'll actually figure out how to use inventory items next time!
You'll get there. First game, i couldn't figure out how to load my gun!
Helpfully, it said "Hold X to reload" on the screen when I picked up some ammo. I guess that was added in the latest patch?

Press right on dpad to equip, hold right trigger to aim arc and let go to throw. You can cook it but I can't remember if its lb or rb.
So Iím playing this my my OG Xbox one.
Itís laggy and the pop in is incredibly poor but the game is fantastic. Having a lot of fun on this.
Is there any difference from the OG Xbox one to say the Xbox one S ?
If there are its negligible, I certainly wouldn't spend out. The difference on x is huge though.
@Frogofdoom thatís fine. Because I wonít be getting the X as it is priced too high for me. plus Iím more into playing the PS4 and VR.
Xbox will be used just for this game which is excellent.

It will be optimized loads more though. The difference in the PC version now to how it was 6 months ago is crazy.
I've had three hard crashes in my last two games. Luckily you can reload the game and resume where you left off, but it needs a hell of a lot of work.
My brother came around for Christmas dinner yesterday and I was trying to get him into PUBG so he can squad up with us. He only watched 1 minute of gameplay, which unfortunately was me jumping out of the plane, parachuting to the ground then the low-poly, jellybaby/mr soft town models loading while the proper models took an age to load. I then went in my first room and there's a desk fan floating at head height.
"Looks fucking rubbish" he said. I couldn't really counter that.
I've been playing this for a bit and I think the review sums it up perfectly. A lot of the tension in the game is generated by the noises around you. A car passing by the house that I'm hiding in always fills me with dread!
I've managed to get into the top 10 a few times by evading everyone but I have absolutely zero chance of winning a game as I cannot shoot at and hit any targets. And I have absolutely no idea which direction enemy fire is coming from! Still, I think that - even with its obviously rough around the edges condition - there is something in PUBG that will keep me coming back for more.
Another update out? Played this last night and it was running much better imo.

I got this free with my X after getting in touch with Xbox Support. Pretty chuffed as I had wanted to pick it up anyway but am now skint. I don't play online that much but it seemed quite interesting. I've had a few games and although I can see myself dipping in and out I'm not really hooked, It's just too much sitting around and waiting for my liking. I can see the appeal though and can see myself just firing it up to round off an evening or something.

Getting some lovely messages today, I am
For the last three days Iíve had a hard crash pretty much every game. Most times Iíve been able to resume from where I left off but the performance is shocking at the moment.
One game last night it happened twice in the same game.
