With this philosophy, Blizzard will sue them for graphics similarity, everyone will get sued by Japanese for Battle Royale, that building aspect has been in other games before so let's sue them for that as well, and so on. Don't forget weapon names, looks, designs, anything, literally.


I think you're all just jumping to conclusions without realizing what exactly they would be suing over. Get off your high horse people, and learn to comprehend. It's not the GAME design or anything in that regard, it's the fact that they used the PUBG name in the ads, which IS ground for suing.

I'm pretty sure H1Z1 pulled him over to make the game mode in their game as well. IIRC this guy is the father of this "genre" and has had a hand in every popular game that has it to this point.

The game is genuinely fun and was fun before it had more than a mere 2k viewers. I think its success is mostly attributed to the fact that it is a game that actually gets updates constantly, and has genuinely fun mechanics compared to a lot of other BR style games. On top of it all, it is a REALLY fun game to watch, so streaming boosted it of course, but it wouldn't do that if the game wasn't fun to watch.

As for PUBG starting something, I think it did. Just like Apple didn't start the smartphone market, but it sure as hell started the smartphone craze. I think the same holds true for PUBG, it might not have started its genre, but it definitely started a trend.

Oh, another Apple analogy....

What did PUBG do different over other BR games in terms of play/mechancis?

*crickets*

It isn't even the first mediocre video game to try and jump on the Hunger Games train. It is a vanilla BR experience with issues that show how young the developers are, it isn't some second coming like people claim it to be. The key to PUBG is that the developers knew they couldn't break any ground on game play, but they could break ground on how viewers watch. Funny enough, TB has a great video about this topic.

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)


By comparison, what did the first iPhone do? Multi-gesture touch, ditching the fixed keyboard all other devices had. Video support, audio support, camera...etc. The original iPhone was an extreme departure in both form and function compared to the leading devices of the time.

Why do people keep pretending that 10 years ago the iPhone looked like every other phone? Stop!

PUBG took a known solid formula and approached it from the social aspect of it, which is obviously damn smart. They are rolling in cash! They basically did what Riot Games with League of Legends did around MOBA, far from inventing it, hardly strayed from the original. They just made it accessible for players and viewers.

Hmmm...I'm leaning towards bluehole suing here:

I don't recall Coke ever sueing Pepsi over its TV ads showing taste comparisons and I am sure they have teams of lawyers to keep from being litigated against. Those commercials were a few years ago thogh, things may have changed.

I would feel bad for blue hole if buildings would load for my friends, or if I would stop teleporting past buildings I was previously looting or looking into my crystal ball to see if the game is going to work.

It was fun for a bit but Siege holds my interest.

PC Bangs like PUBG since you only have to waste about 1-2 min to find another match after getting rekt.

I know it isnt a new game but what about H1Z1's recent update? I looks exactaly like PUBG now. Not only that you cant really call this game formula unique there have been a few games like it in the past ,while not implemented as well (Day Z comes to mind, and even custom game modes in ArmA) but this is like Call of Duty getting upset that BF1942 came along. Pretty much the exact same in terms of formula yet two different ip's. Hell look at all the overwatch clones that are out today (and even some that were before overwatch) This is just silly and dramatic for no reason...

It would be a good joke, but a VP is saying this (on the record), not some intern. Get the popcorn ready.

This has nothing to do with "Hunger Games train"

Battle Royale is based off https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battle_Royale

Which is why PU made the Battle Royale MOD for Arma,

which is why Daybreak brought PU in to consult on the Battle Royale MOD for H1Z1
