    I play Gears every Friday at about 2am with a group of Americans. They're always pissed and expect everyone else to be too. It's fun. Been going every Friday since Gears 1.

    FC2 is best FC.

    3 top 10 finishes, including a third. I was so careful and so set and then I lost my head and climbed through a window. Noise, unable to shoot, death.

    Next game I also lost my head and inexplicably dumped a car I desperately needed.

    It gets tense and I get shit!
    Fantastic, isn't it?

    What I like best is that some games, I have shit loot and manage to do well, some games I have great stuff and do badly. You never know what's likely to happen.

    But generally, it seems fair and if I die, it's down to not thinking, or doing something stupid. Or just blundering into someone by mistake. :)

    I have yet to get a good scope and silencer for an AR and do well. I always get a bit ahead of myself and die.

    Couple of games of just finding a pistol and loads of attachments and bumping into a well-equipped person etc or really surviving hand to mouth through a game and having to dodge everyone , then all of a sudden one house has great stuff.. It makes it all worthwhile for a few mins.

    Played this on og xbox now, and after playing on PC it's absolute garbage on here. I don't know how u can attempt to kill someone at range, it's like 4 moving pixels. Maybe better on the x?

    X is OK. Definitely takes getting used to, and thinking much more close range than PC. I can do OK w ironsights and an AKM at distance on PC - but on xbox i think you need a red dot at minumum, and expect it to take longer to line up shots until you get the hang of it (and even then).

    I am useless at this game, and yet I have had a 3 and a 2 this week.Pacifism for the (Almost) win.

    Got a knack of knowing where the circle is going, shame I can't hit a barn door with a banjo.

    The latest patch has made no end of difference to me. Turning aim acceleration off helps. Fps increased also. Very noticeable when you deploy the parachute.

    Yeah the game seems a bit smoother now. Still got crazy popin and rubber banding at times.

    I had a fair few crashes last night, which is to be expected in pre-release software, I guess. Odd thing is, I hadn't experienced any crashing at all up to that point. Ruined a couple of promising looking games though :(

    Much better frame rate - the plane and parachuting are fine now. I could actually look around while dropping down to see what was around. And the start was no longer terrible. Random rubber banding, but not too bad - and as they fixed that on PC, should be fine.

    Another 3rd. Made a move on a guy, gave him 4th place, and then got lit up from god knows where.

    It's a really irritating game in some ways: the total chance of certain situations sucks. The tension is ace though.

    I like it for that. And hate it too. :)

    Again tonight I finally got a suppressor for a decent gun (ump), but no sights. Managed ok, but got 14th, due to having to move to the circle and getting spotted from who knows where.

    The tension throughout is a winner.

    The random loot/player encounter lottery is both great and terrible depending on the outcome. But those highs when it all goes well, or some good stuff is found really hit my buttons. This update has helped a lot too.

    Argh FUCK THIS. I am really good at picking the right angles for getting down to the last few and then I always get jumped by some psychic arsehole.

    Just unloaded an Aug into a guy's head but he survives and I don't. Baaaaah.


    Another!

    The only thing I get really frustrated about is when I suck :) Like when I decide to jump out of the car in the middle of a field to attack somebody and then obviously get shot to death from three sides. I'd say I won't do that again, but I probably will. My thirst for kills is too strong.

    Had a hilarious beginning in Sevastopol in squads. After two of our random squad went elsewhere and died instantly, my random m8 and I cornered a solo guy in an attic, and just about managed to kill him. Then as we were leaving the building, his three m8s turned up, killed my squad m8. I dashed back inside to finished bandaging. I jumped out the window with one clip of AKM, and 14 in my Mini 14. Emptied [/missed] the entire clip of the AKM into one guy, then swapped to the Mini14, popped him instantly. The next guy was just coming up, and I took care of him quite easily. Then guy number three was on me, and I had 3 bullets left in the Mini14. Gave it a go, hit him once. He pretty much missed every single bullet, as I ran up to him and tried to punch him to death. I failed. As he was reloading (didn't fancy my chances) I remembered there was a shotgun on the body of the guy back in the house. I ran back in, got the double barrel (there was only enough ammo left for 2 rounds..), went back out, and blasted him with both barrels as he was reviving his two team m8s. I should have died way earlier, and wouldn't have been mad :) but I didn't, so it was awesome!

    FUCK ME this FUCKING GAME.

    Squad of 4, land about 1000000 miles from the zone. Sprint over, bike ferrying people. I am the last on foot... and a red zone blocks my way!

    I circle round, circle doing damage to me. Loony picks me up and off we go... to a charnel house at the very edge of the zone, where our very own Stephen and Giraffe have cleared out some scumbags. But then! Stephen grabs a jeep, for we desperately need wheels to have any chance of making the next zone, and encounters a lone wolf, who downs him. The jeep keeps driving off... into the blue. THEN a red zone appears on top of us. THEN the circle starts moving.

    THEN my game crashes.

    It's bloody brilliant and utterly hilarious and stupidly frustrating all at once.

    Literally 'winner, winner, instead of lunch (dinner)'.

    Stealthed it like a bitch (hid under a bridge at one point), took out 3 in the final approach, and then the fools died out on the plain whilst I sat on my grassy hummock and cackled.

    YESSSS.

    Nice one! Telboy, Tolands, Cov, and I got our first chicken dinner tonight :D We had a good run, dropped together and got some decent kit, then methodically worked our way following the circle, keeping in cover. There was some luck with circle placement as we never had too far to go and always a decent route to take. By the end all four of us were left and we killed quite a few on the way to the victory.

    I managed to record the last 5 minutes... http://xboxdvr.com/gamer/ModoRB/video/42167186

    Is it still a thing for keeping your capture stuff turned off or have they made it so you can turn it back on without suffering?

    @ChiefGB it's seems okay. Modo is on the One and I've got an X and it doesn't seem to have an impact. Still have suspicions of a placebo affect when I initially turned off capture. :)

    Yeah I tried turning it off but it didn't seem to make any difference, I'd rather capture glorious videos of our many chicken dinners!

    So can you put it back on? I was disappointed to have it switched off when I finally broke my chicken dinner duck.

    It was never a thing, was it? I thought MSFT debunked it.

    It looked far less impressive from other angles...
