Lancelot is still raging hard over at Albion Online. The March 12th content update received a midseason patch this week, bringing players a new guild vs. guild training map and other cool features. One of the major selling points of the patch is a re-spec ability, which allows players to switch over to different types of gear. “This feature gives players who really want to switch a chance to do so without starting from zero, but the costs involved should ensure players don’t constantly change gear on a whim,” the devs said.

The Pantheon Twitter strikes again with a question I find interesting enough to write about on the blog. This one is interesting -- Perhaps because of how it's worded but also because of how people have already responded. The responses so far have been interesting. They've ranged from messaging the person to tell them what they've done wrong to laughing about it. Some people want to shrug it off, others want to just call their guild for help. Some People Just Don't Care What I find most fascinating about the responses are how they seem opposite of a previous question the community faced about how they'd deal with someone stealing their mobs. The overwhelming result of that question was to train the person. Huh. Let's ignore the irony for a minute. I don't think messaging the person and informing them of the misdeeds will do anything other than maybe making yourself feel better. It's like the guy who cuts you off in traffic. Why do they do it? Because they simply don't care. They're … [Read more...] about You’re Trained & Can’t Get Your Corpse… What Do You Do?
What’s the next element of PlayerUnknown’s Battleground’s FIX PUBG campaign? Training mode. “The PUBG Training Mode lets 5-20 players (solo queue with matchmaking) explore a brand new 2×2 km map and practice all aspects of PUBG, from driving the game’s various vehicles around the island’s race tracks, to practicing parachute landings on scattered targets, to mastering the perfect peek shot,” Bluehole explains on Steam. “There are even areas to practice vaulting, close-quarters combat, and of course, sweet vehicle jumps.” The goal, the devs say, is to ease newbies and casuals into an understanding of how navigation, movement, and looting works, but of course there’s plenty of things for hardcores to practice and test and break too. This week, the company also updated players on its ongoing efforts to improve server performance. “Granular” would be a charitable way of describing the tech dev diary; suffice it to … [Read more...] about PUBG’s new training mode map looks like more fun than the actual game
Play PUBGA major update has just hit the PC version of PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds with Update 21, which brings with it the much-requested Training Mode, a new weapon and vehicle, an all-new reward system, as well as a whole slew of other quality-of-life improvements and bug fixes. Perhaps the largest feature of the update is the new Training Mode, in which players can try out all of the game’s weapons and vehicles in a safe, low-pressure environment. Somewhat strangely, each Training Mode session is still technically a multiplayer game, requiring at least 5 players to queue for it and maxing out at 20 players per session, with each session lasting 30 minutes. Seems a bit odd to not just make it accessible solo and sans time limit, but we’re sure it’ll be a welcome addition nevertheless. The update also adds a new weapon, the MK47 Mutant assault rifle, as well as a new, Sanhok-exclusive vehicle, the Tukshai (more popularly known as a tuk-tuk). The update also … [Read more...] about PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds Update 21 introduces Training Mode, new weapon and vehicle, and revamped reward system
