I love the 1v1 arena, but please please please make it lvl 2 gear. That way its more of an accurate representation of what youll meet in game. Also ADSing when drivebying is bugged in the Training Mode.

Hey! Thanks for the feedback! Could you share a clip showcasing the bug you are talking about?

So pleased with the 1v1 and private training session!!!!!!!!

It has been very difficult to get my friends into this game, as the average skill level is very high compared to other games. I know I'll be able to use this to help get my friends up to speed, without them getting completely smoked over and over again and feeling discouraged. I can make it fun for them, all I needed was the tools to make it happen :)

I'm glad you guys are trying to get the mortar some more action too. These changes make me feel confident PUBG is headed in the right direction.

u/SteveTheHappyWhale, could you clarify for us if PUBG has an official stance on the "revive" topic that frequently comes up in the community? I noticed a couple former PUBG figures stated that they'd consider returning if a great revive system was implemented. While those public figures themselves may not be hugely important, I have to imagine that they represent a selection of other players who have left the game and feel similarly. Just wondering if it's something PUBG has ruled out or has a stance on.

Thanks!

Hey Clayton!

Glad you're liking the training map / mode improvements.

We've been forwarding all the sentiment regarding the revive system. There are no immediate news that I can share but that isn't to say that a system like that has been written off / ruled out.
