Title: PlayerUnkown's Battlegrounds
Post by: bopdude on 04 July 2017, 07:27: PM
Can't take it any more, this is getting bought this week, it's still in development but very playable as is, if you don't know it there's plenty on youtube, have a look see, I'm watching a lot of live streaming from a player at the mo and can't get enough, it's not your run and gun,very cagey  intense, and that's from a spec point of view lmao

At the minute for me, minutes :D 4 or 5 matches now without a kill, did make #40 once by running around without a clue :shrug:

Well played a few more games altering settings, getting to know it a bit ( not a lot ) more, very hit and miss on weapons ? managed 1 kill, 1, in about 7 games :D didn't stop me, just got top 5 without firing a shot, from my pistol   ;D ;D
Title: Re: PlayerUnkown's Battlegrounds
Post by: bopdude on 05 July 2017, 08:07: PM
It's getting better, better weapons being found makes a difference ( of course ) bit of info, it's not your average shooter, you'll go long periods without seeing anyone, stealth 'seems' to be the order of the day until the circle gets smaller, then it's mad, just got 2 kills at the end, I shot a guy that was shooting a guy nad got shot by that guy lmao, enjoying it though, nerve racking suspense very intense :D

It's not fortunes if you decide you don't like it, as I said, it's not a cod or moh or bf, it is totally different, no uav etc, I'm liking it :tu:

Also to note, it is still a work in progress :)

each match will last a max of 30 mins. there are lots of pick ups you can get. from energy drinks that give you stamina buffs, different tier items for armour and back packs. lots of weapon types from frying pans that save your life so pick one up, bats pistols, rifles and snipers. all these can be modded with sights magazines grips etc.

Bit of advice to last longer to get more points don't drop in to a town or city. if you see a small group of houses go there. when your running always go 3rd person so you can peak over ridges round corners.

Do not go over the bridges as you will be killed almost immediately. Cars will get your places quick but will draw lots of attention. the air drops they have the best stuff but 99% of the time someone is camping it for easy kills.

This is a very fun addictive game and they aim to go from Alpha to full game within a year.

there are two new maps out soon (for free)

Yeah, learning all the time, I've taken to dropping early or late and working in over slowly, I like the military base, nice weapons but too much time before the circle closes in, need to play a duo with you so you can teach me some tricks :) struggling with the how to equip the mods to weapons and types, slow learning curve but it'll get there, it is a great game at the moment, and it's still alpha / beta ?

The graphics can be tweaked legitamatly as well with a prog called Reshade :D youtube it, makes a BIG difference :tu:

How can a fying pan save your life.  Either it's going to get wrapped around someone's head with a nice dull gong like thud effect, or it's proper use for a bacon and egg sarnie is going to give you clogged arteries  :P

When It is in you inventory, it shows on your back so when people try and shoot you in the back they hit the pan

Post by: Scary on 07 July 2017, 07:48: AM
what everyone was doing was having the graphics set to low and draw distance set to low. The outcome of that was so there was no trees plants and they could see where people were hiding. they have made a change since then to stop this as technically it is kind of a wall hack. i have not had chance to mess around with the settings to see what will work now as everytime i did try i got dead quick lol

Yeah, reading further what you say is right but you can do that within the game settings, what reshade did was the opposite, it bought out and enhanced the colours and shading but this also made a difference in spotting, I've had to un-install PUGB to get rid of reshade, I'll re-install today though :)

It isn't cheating, those values are in the in game graphics menu, the reshade program was ok with the game's maker or so it seemed, not forgeeting, it's still in dev :)

The problem switching weapons using the scroll wheel, I don't know about anyone else but it's set to scroll 3 lines at a time for browsing docs and pages etc, I just turned mine down to 1 line and it 'seems' to be better, of course it makes web pages slower, can't believe there's not a programmable option on the RAT7 profile editor ?
Title: Re: PlayerUnkown's Battlegrounds
Post by: zingle on 21 July 2017, 10:30: AM
I can not believe the game does not account for that. It should not be seen as a scroll but a press in the game just like any other button. Each click should count as an activate

I don't think it's the game as much as the mouse software :shrug: The game is reading each click as 3 lines and rotating weapons accordingly, at least that's my theory ?

To fix the problem of the 'F' key bind try this, make a copy of the config file first and save it else where as a back-up in case it FUBAR's your game settings.

Turn on view hidden files/folders.  Browse to C:\Users\YourUserName\AppData\Local\TslGame\Saved\Config\WindowsNoEditor and open the GameUserSettings.ini file.  Search for Key=F or Interact.  There's an extra instance of it somewhere after the gamepad entry.  Example: (ActionName="Interact",Keys=((Key=E),(Key=Gamepad_FaceButton_Left), Keys=((Key=F)))

Remove the extra instance of Keys=((Key=F))

Tips............

You can delete the file LoadingScreen.mp4 at C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\PUBG\TslGame\Content\Movies
and you'll load into the game faster, if you ever verify files or re-install the game the file will be installed again.

You can jump higher than normal by pressing JUMP, CROUCH, and W all at the same time ( W being whatever your forward key is )

Clicking and holding when you shoot a sniper will keep you scoped in, allowing you to see exactly where your bullet hit

The most efficient way to heal using bandages is by using the next one when you see you get your third increment of health from your previous one. Don't spam them, it's pointless.

I'm seeing a lot of references in reviews on Steam that the game is going to have micro-transactions requiring real cash, and that those are starting up even while the game is in Early Access.  It's perhaps OK if this is just for cosmetic stuff, like different player clothing (provided it's not a camouflage) that doesn't affect game play and give a player advantage over another.  But if it's going to give things like better weaponry unlocks (one of the reviews suggests you can have a key to unlock special crates), then it's a problem.

I was sort of interested to give this game a go, given how much you are raving over it (despite that I'm going to be dead all the time and no doubt having to sit around waiting for a round to end before we can all start playing another game).  But if it risks becoming a Pay to Win game, then my cash stays firmly in pocket.

Post by: bopdude on 27 July 2017, 07:27: PM
I haven't seen any ref to crates having weapons and the cloths that they're dishing out are loud, nothing you would want to wear in game unless you were THAT good, but I can't see it being pay for as far as weapons go, it's a free for all after all ??
Title: Re: PlayerUnkown's Battlegrounds
Post by: Ramrod on 27 July 2017, 08:55: PM
I can't see that they would give any game advantage for money. I think that it would be for cosmetic enhancements only.

One of the best strategy guides so far: How not to play PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds: a noob's guide (https://www.pcgamesn.com/playerunknowns-battlegrounds/how-not-to-play-playerunknowns-battlegrounds)
Quote

If the runaway success of PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds proves one thing, it’s that people love dying alone in the middle of nowhere to an unseen enemy, armed with just a crowbar and sporting only a pair of inexplicably clean boxers. Nope, it’s not the nerve-shredding tension that only a last-man-standing battle royale fight between 100 players can deliver – it’s the dying alone in a ditch that attracts.

Since buying the game earlier this week, I’ve died in a lot of ditches (precisely nine at the time of writing), but I’ve also died in buildings, on rooftops, under cars, while swimming, on fire, at the bottom of a cliff, consumed by a cloud of electricity, by skillet, and friendly fire.

Naturally, that makes me something of an expert when it comes to playing PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds badly; an idiot without the savant if you will. So, while I can’t impart any wisdom as to how you might win a match in this brutal survival game, I can tell you how not to play it in the hope that you’ll figure out the rest. Oh, and when you do, can you let me know? Cheers.
Now, if you can simultaneously explore every building in sight while also avoiding any with open or closed doorways, you’re really onto something.
Just don’t play it. PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds is cruel and will make you sad, so don’t play it unless you’re better at it than me and have friends.

So now more people have got the game i thought I should post about Reshade, I know Bop uses this, This is completely legal to use as confirmed by playerunkown himself you cannot be banned for using this as it is just a recolor tool.

This tool make the colors in the game more sharp and easier to see people. you will drop around 10 to 15 FPS but as most of us have more powerful cards it wont matter.

Link: https://reshade.me/

Tutorial: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fWmQe_-35x4&t=252s

I would advise that you use the settings that the guy uses in the video.

I'd be wary about how something like that works.  It may be OK with playerunknown.  But what if it is on your PC with other games like Battlefield?  Would their anticheat systems take a dislike?  Can it be selected just to operate on one game, or does it embed itself into your computer to be available on any game?  If the latter that is when the anticheat software might not be happy.
Title: Re: PlayerUnkown's Battlegrounds
Post by: Scary on 30 July 2017, 12:01: PM
It only works if you activate against the game. when you open it you have to select the game you want it to run on.

Today we look at what we have changed and fixed in our week 20 patch.
This patch will be deployed to the Test Servers on Wednesday, August 9th, and if everything is stable, to the Live Servers on Thursday.

Client Optimization
Optimized game performance for 6-core or higher CPU
Optimized UI

Sound Effects

Decreased motorbike engine and vehicle skid sound volumes

Bug Fixes

Improved character animation when using throwables while prone
Fixed a bug that occasionally disabled voice chat on the Starting Island
Fixed a bug that caused your character to stand before crouching when revived
Fixed a bug that prevented players from rebinding Unarm to an alternate key
You can now see the mark from the character you are spectating on both the Mini Map and World Map
Fixed a visual bug with the scope while a character you are spectating is prone on a hill
Fixed a bug caused by changing "Graphics" - "Quality" - "Effects" from Settings
Improved the wrist positions on the steering wheel

See you in-game,
PUBG Community Team



Nothing about the frame drops or lag though.

And the jump higher / jump through windows fix............ go to C / Users > ( your name ) > AppData>Local>TSLGame>Saved>Config>WindowsNoEditor open the GameUserSettings file in Notepad

Then, click Edit > Find > ToggleCrouch ............. You'll get this line mixed in with others with ToggleCrouch highlighted,

(ActionName="ToggleCrouch",Keys=((Key=N)

 my crouch is N, after the N you'll have a comma then in the first brackets box is where you need to put your jump key, mine is SpaceBar. So now looks like this

(ActionName="ToggleCrouch",Keys=((Key=N),(Key=SpaceBar))),


Now close the file down saving changes when prompted, if you're panicky, before you make changes copy the file somewhere as a backup.

Job Done, enjoy your jumps over previous bastard walls :D

A bit of another view into settings for the game from a Twitcher that I've followed over from YT, great guy omho, goes onto detail as to what and why.

PUBG twitter has announced a new patch next week, set to go to test server 2 days prior to release, FPP leaderboards! new weapon, and foggy map should be interesting for sniping

"Some of the key features of the new build include a new weapon, foggy weather condition, FPP leaderboards and multiple bug fixes."

Not forgetting he's got a good spec pc and his settings are not what you would think, as are most of the top players .

And this sort of thing really bugs me.  Why do games designers, and hardware manufacturers put so much effort into getting things to look good, only for players to intentionally turn stuff off so they get an advantage?  Reviews all talk about how good it looks and the effects that are displayed, but if you want to win you turn it off.  BF1 I had real problems seeing the enemy player with everything on (yet my 980Ti should have easily coped), but turn it off and the game looked crap (and thus less enjoyable), but at least I could see death staring me in the face.

Gaming on PC isn't a level playing field simply due to differences in the hardware, but add in that people downgrade their output and it's even sillier.   

Perhaps games should be that only have an "auto" setting.  Therefore dependent on the hardware, the more you see, which evens out the slower hardware that would struggle on fps even if stuff is off.
Title: Re: PlayerUnkown's Battlegrounds
Post by: bopdude on 08 September 2017, 01:52: PM
I know what you're saying but lets not forget that the game is still not optimised and is still early access, iirc I've read recently that they have done something to the gfx so as to eliminate the foliage issue with turn down the setting so that it does render in, it would be different altogether if the game was a finished release, then I would understand the frustration, tbh, it does make a difference but NOT that much to the average Joe :shrug:

Finally cracked the EU ranking sub 100K  for duo and solo, the fog map has almost taken care of the snipers, not sure whether that's good or bad :shrug: considering that the new weapon is a DMR ? ish gun, a few Twitchers are favouring it over the Kar98 ?

I have over £100 pounds worth of PUBG merchandise, most bought cheaply or using PB points, atm the prices are going up steadily, what do you think, hang on to them, sell them, do you think they will have a ceiling price or will carry on growing, a dilemma, then there is the case of what to do with the cash as it's not transferable back to the real world so what to buy if I sell ?

Why do you all get so excited over a chicken dinner.  KFC is on every high street corner.  Now if it was a T bone steak .....

The whole premise of the game is to the be the last man standing, and if you are then you get the "Winner Winner Chicken Dinner" screen but to get to it, can be extremely difficult.

Basically if you are unaware of the game and it's mechanics it's like this.

1: Parachute out of a plane to a location, normally for us it's ideally out of the way of the main populated areas so we can loot quite a few buildings in general piece and quiet.

2: Try to find a Scar, M16A4, M416 and UMP, Kar98 etc

3: Find a decent amount of ammo around 200 rounds for each, that way if you get in to a fight early on you have enough ammo to cope.

4: Find helmet, backpack and vest ideally lvl 3 but lvl 2 will do, this is where you store you equipment, med's etc and offers a slight amount of protection from bullets, and off course if you really want to then you can grab a frying pan to save your ass from being shot.

5: Move to keep in the play zone avoiding high traffic areas if you don't want to fight, and avoid the blue zone without doing a "Paul" and insisting on moving when you have 5 minutes before it starts moving and are over 2Km away from it, giving you nearly 6 to 8 minutes of time in total  :D

6: Ensure you make it as high as you can aiming for kills and the "Chicken Dinner" but mostly the "Chicken Dinner" this requires you to keep focus and be looking around you at all times and listening for footsteps, vehicles, crawling etc to make it easier to spot people.

7: Don't do a me and spam the trigger when firing, slow your shots down and land your shots, most people die within 3 to 5 bullets dependent on armour unless they have none in which case they can die with 1 or 2 shots.

8: Be tactical in your movement or get really lucky and have the play area land on you the whole time so you don't really need to move.




That is pretty much what I do.

- Blue zone DOT (Damage over Time) increases the farther away from the play zone you are
- This does not apply to the first blue zone

It's a good thing, the blue zone campers will have to have a BIG rethink ;)

Good games last night, my head hurts lol
Title: Re: PlayerUnkown's Battlegrounds
Post by: MovedGoalPosts on 11 November 2017, 10:59: AM
So having succumbed to the enthusiasm from some quarters, or more realistically just simply that I wanted to play computer games with my mates, I raided my piggy bank.   After three or so hours of faffing around I can give my first thoughts.

It's not a NTHW clan game.  With maximum squads of four, we have no way of having a large group of us all being on Teamspeak in the same channel enjoying the drunken group banter of the past.  The needs of that squad play communication are paramount.  That is what is making the game work, whether it's the process of looting and sharing the spoils, determining which way to go and when to move, spotting enemies, etc.  The moment there are too many players for a single squad, then those on TS must fragment into different channels.

There is the idea that servers will become available to rent, and that will allow mods for other types of gameplay, such as perhaps TDM.  But ask yourselves whether you really would play such modes?

The reason for your playing this game so long now is that squad play and the "intensity" that demands.  It's a style of game play with close teamwork that has eluded NTHW since our early days.  It clearly works for some who want the strategic input and which is so different to our run amok chaotic play of the past.  That you are virtually exclusively playing PUBG is the squad format.  Games we have available that would allow wider groups of us to all play as one just don't happen so why would those game modes, if available for modded PUBG servers appeal?

As for the game itself, it is a very very steep learning curve.  That almost becomes a barrier to entry.  Many controls are not that intuitive, or that you just don't know they exist.  I can see that in the longer term that offers depth because you are unlikely to find the same weaponry, aid packs or whatever, along with the randomness of where the reducing play area will end up.  Perhaps because I started straight into squad play was wrong, and a tutorial process would be the way forward.  I do like the idea that there are no kill streak perks, so it is a game of chance as to what weapons and other stuff you will have available.  It's definitely not a run and gun game, but that reducing circle of play does put the pressure on creating a vastly different game style than the usual TDM, domination, capture flag types that we've been used to over the years.  Indeed it is this reducing circle concept that has given the shooter game something relatively novel and undoubtedly creates the interest for the game.

I'm not sure how much the game will grow on me.  I'm not sure I'm that into the detailed communication of tactics and stuff.  I'm not wanting to be that disciplined, but that is why I have a high death ratio in most games, I don't have enough patience.

Post by: bopdude on 11 November 2017, 04:46: PM
Yes it is all that and more, in its current state it's not the usual NTHW game, but, it has potential to be depending on the servers, it all relies on that imho, but of its not then we will have to find something that is, in the meantime it'll do as a stop gap.

I have a few hours now clocked up, but not yet into double digits.  I have tried the squad modes with a few of you, and also solo.

I'm already finding the looting aspect of the game tedious.  Looting is a fundamental part of the game, that adds to the random chance of events.  Part of this may be that I'm not efficient so have no idea what I might be finding.  Even so, I just want to get into the fight, but that seems unwise and it's better to hide as fighting is pointless as I only have about 3 kills total.

I'll give it a bit more time, but first impressions are that I don't think this is my type of gameplay :(
Title: Re: PlayerUnkown's Battlegrounds
Post by: bopdude on 13 November 2017, 09:58: AM
The looting and therefor shooting will get quicker and better, there are higher loot areas that iirc so far we have not dropped into with you, maybe we should just plunge in at the deep end ? it goes 1 of 2 ways, you kill people fast or you get killed fast, you still have a lot to pick up yet in the how's and what's, hell, we're still learning, I have 555 hours and going strong, I hope you have a change of heart about the game :)

Airplane and parachuting noises much lower, cars and bikes sound awesome, bullet speed etc changed across gun types as well as damage, vaulting, nice but struggling with it, early days :)

Ok, vaulting under control, seems that the crouch jump is a) no longer needed and b) seems to have been blocked ? rain noise is still a touch loud imo, it just got me killed as I couldn't hear the UAZ coming towards me as I was shooting a guy and it got the road kill on us both lmao :(

Rammy, when he bothers to check in will find that he f****d off 20 minutes earlier after being killed at the inception of the game, when the rest of his squad did the prudent thing and avoided contact.  So he missed the skills of Vantage crawling about a hillside like a demented worm on speed in order to earn us all a meal ticket.

Post by: bopdude on 18 December 2017, 09:26: AM
Loads of new features on the test server including 'Replay' not sure exactly how yet but you get to watch any player any view or freeview, must be once you're dead or your whole squad is dead but will be interesting.

"The best part about replay, is when one of my mates gets all mad and salty and claims to have been shot through a hill or something I can go watch it back and see that he was in full view of the guys that shot him"

Is a quote from a forum but it applies to us all, if and when we think we've been cheated, iirc the replay option stores the last 20 replays ( on pc or cloud ? ) tbc

Also the vaulting and map choice will be good, they are talking about possibly doing away with rain and fog maps but that is getting way ahead.

Anyway, I'm going to be on the test server a bit today to test the replay and killcam options  :)
Title: Re: PlayerUnkown's Battlegrounds
Post by: bopdude on 18 December 2017, 03:26: PM
The replay is quiet good, you can follow players or go free view in the sky, you can only go up or down on the last viewed player but you can also pan around, the killcam doesn't load for me, just hangs at the black screen ?

 :lol: I think we all know who is the worst for calling cheat out of us  :rofl:


It will be good but they need to get it to work properly, I am already seeing people saying it has no recoil etc on it, and people are already saying it's flawed because it does show the vital stuff but I am not bothering with it until it hit's the normal, servers and they we will see how good or bad it is.


It will be interesting to see where it stores the files and what file type they are in, as it will help to be able to report those pesky cheaters and macro user's if it works properly.

I still don't see them banning people for using macros though, because the big streamers have not been banned yet and they all use the no recoil and/or rapid fire macro's.
Title: Re: PlayerUnkown's Battlegrounds
Post by: bopdude on 18 December 2017, 05:00: PM
Looks to be cloud based ? there is no recoil when spectating someone afaik, I know they're getting optimised as I'm getting a lot higher fps and the game just keeps looking and playing better on the test server, 2 days til full release.........hopefully ;)

Game that we played last night, we got killed by another cheat looked at it this afternoon and there was 0.02ms between him killing me and aiming and killing thannis.

Let's hope they start sorting this cheating out as it's a joke now.

Slowed it down, so it looks slower than it was but literally it was just a snap from me to thannis, instant kill although we were weak.

True but 0.02ms is just stupidly quick, and considering his aim went straight to the head.

Got another one that I am rendering now and gonna upload, I don't care if the dev's don't like people being named and shamed, the dev's should be focusing on getting the servers, performance, anti cheat and other stuff sorted rather than trying to find way's to bring in micro-transactions and giving streamers hand jobs.

Working from home today, and watching a few streams.

Seems that the game is much better than before, but still has lag/desync issues as well as people getting stuck after leaving a match where they cannot select anything, just stuck on a loading screen.

Cheat's are apparently still rampant but apparently the "Asian" players are stuck on there own servers  :rofl:

E'sport's ready folks  :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl:

Hi m8. Any friend of Bops etc........ :)
I swear a lot and drink far too much. Dry January hasn't kicked in for me yet as I'm still off work till next week and it seems a shame to be sober whilst on holiday :D
I hurt people for money.....so life is good. Wife and 2 teenagers balance that out though...... :suicide:
I'm using a 5ish year old build in a 12 year old case. The only thing I've updated is the gfx (to 980Ti). i7-2600K @ 3.4 GHz. (I removed the OC)
16 gig ram.

And now I sold a Gamescon crate to buy a Desperado crate and used another key, got light blue training pants £17.49 worth, I might have a new addiction and may need help soon, ok, I have to wait 7 days before I can sell and the prices could go down, or they may go up ? 1 week and counting ;D

Ha ha ha, got to love the servers on this game.

Was destroying people, everyone that I shot at died and then after getting 5 kill's, I start running for the next circle only just over 1.5Km to run when I lost all control couldn't turn etc and then I get stuck running at a building, and bang "Lost Connection".

FUMING!

A question, a late night gaming on Saturday with Vantage threw up some interesting points, I 'seem' to have an all round better spec pc than him yet he's getting far better performance, Vantage, can you post your specs please, once done I'll post mine for the boffins to comment on, thanks.

It would appear that the numbers on the cards are like Star Wars, they don't mean a frikin thing, apparently ( thanks Damien ) and I've looked to see how much, the gfx that Vantage has pisses all over mine /blush.

Anyway, in other news, getting closer on the new map, just got a third, killed by the circle, I thought I was just in so stopped, but wasn't :( it's ok though, a solo dinner on Erangle before that sweetened my sorrow ;D

And the crap just keeps on coming.

https://overclock3d.net/news/software/chinese_police_arrest_120_pubg_cheat_makers_with_the_help_of_tencent/1


The developers couldn't/can't be arsed to do anything about the cheaters from China, because it's worth so much money to them that the company who is going to be publishing the "Official Chinese" version of the game has decided to take the matter in to there own hands and start to crack down on the scumbags.

Not going to be a massive help but at least this publisher is doing something about it, whilst Mr Greene sit's in his mansion just laughing whilst counting his cash.

Nope, don't think this one was, on your view it shows blood so you hit him somewhere, he had a lvl2 vest and a lvl1 helmet, that might have just saved him, the rest was the AKM, imho :)

Miramar improvements
Added more buildings and cover across the map to improve the engagement experience
Added more off-road routes for easier vehicle navigation
Upgraded the item spawn level of certain areas for loot balancing (some areas will spawn better loot)

As well as a new anti cheat in development but only on the test servers for now.

A new anti-cheat going live tomorrow, if anyone else is / was using reshade it will be blocked but you won't be banned, maybe best to uninstall it anyway as I have, just to be safe :)

It had to happen to one of us, if it's not already happened.

The other guy had the height advantage, I didn't really stand a chance.

Was a really good game, had quite a drawn out gun fight with a bloke who had a Kar98 but no decent scope for it, if he was any good he would have killed me but it was just drawn out.

Then got down to near the bridge and had another battle with a guy and he nearly killed me but my lvl 3 vest saved me.

Blue/ green huge blood splatter, no idea how or why this is a thing but shows hit markers far away very well, up close it's a bit of a blur, if you want to try in right click PUBG in library go to launch options and type in  -KoreanRating       Just as it's written there with the - as well, save and close, if you don't like it just delete and save.

It's all to do with the "Blood" in the likes of Call Of Duty etc they are not allowed to have "Red Blood" it has to be "Blue Blood" I believe it's something to do with "Superstition".

Games that leave "Skeletons" etc are mostly banned or censored in China and some other countries and the likes of the "Nazi Zombie" mode from COD games are not allowed to be part of the game, but people still get it because they just buy a none censored version of the game.

They even have there own version of Call Of Duty called "Call Of Duty Online" and it's supposed to be really good but it's in "Mandarin" or something like that so you need to have translators on your pc, and also a chinese language setting in order to set it up.

I might give the "Blue Blood" splatter a try at some point.
