About clear and efficient communication

Efficiency is all about communicating without misunderstanding. It is important that we don’t mistake complaints without a plan B as helpful criticism, or helpful criticism as a complaint.

About a sense of responsibility and trust

Trusting each other in a complex workplace is mandatory. To promote trust within an organization, we must be honest at work, keep to our word, commit to quality, take responsibility, and maintain a positive attitude. Bluehole

    Some random thoughts about PUBG

    Over the past month or so, I have been trying to understand the PUBG phenomenon. Why is it that gamers, myself included, find the game so compelling?

    For a while, I have been arguing that the secret to the joy, and thus the addictive nature of PUBG, is that you don’t lose, you just win bigger. My thinking has changed a little, but my initial reasoning was based on the fact that if all factors (skill, knowledge, weapons, equipment, etc.) were equal, one would have only a 1/100 chance of winning. I don’t know of a game in Vegas with odds that awful, which means, you aren’t (rationally) playing to win, but playing to try to win. Your expectations are muted from the beginning, “Odds are I won’t win, but I am going to try to beat the odds, and if I do, how awesome will that feel!” In reality, the game is full of random elements, and you are hoping that luck will swing in your favor, and that you will prove both smarter and better than the other 99 players. I mostly stand by that “only win slogan”, but understandably, I have failed to persuade anyone that you never lose.

    This past weekend, I realized that there have to be some caveats. First, basically, if you die in a way that doesn’t involve an enemy taking you out, the humiliation is sufficient for it to feel like a loss. Of course, the best example of this is racing against the shimmering, ever-enclosing dome of death, and dying just outside the play zone. That kind of death represents gross tactical negligence and cowardice; it is both brainless and ball-less, and there should be shame, deep shame.

    This hints at a more comprehensive rule for winning. When a person is taken out before getting fed, so to speak, as long as there is no cowardice involved, then it is a win.

    Examples of cowardice, which negate winning, are:
    1) dying by suffocation outside the dome (as previously mentioned),
    2) dying after spending most of the round crouching behind a door,
    3) running away from a fist fight and dying,
    4) to be added as discovered

    Ultimately, regardless of the dubiousness of “you never lose”, the following can be stated boldly. In gaming, PUBG offers some of the highest of high at almost any point in the game, without conversely requiring the lowest of lows from those who don’t get the dinner. In fact, with the exception of deaths by cowardice, there are very few lows at all.

    And I came up with some “Achievements”:

    At The Window” – making it into the top 20 – standing outside the open window, smelling the chicken roasting
    In The Kitchen” – making it into the top 10 – offering to take the chicken out of the oven
    At The Table” – Making it into the top 5 – sitting, knife and fork in hand
    Self evident
    Chicken Dinner
    Dinner for Two
    Dinner for Three
    Dinner for Four

    Falafel” – Getting In The Kitchen but dying outside the play zone, also awarded for any other death involving cowardice.

    And there is an excellent review over at Rock, Paper, Shotgun.

      I fear you’re putting all of your eggs in one basket, my friend. Turn the hype down just a bit for your own sake. I just don’t want you to be frustrated because it takes you a longer time to acclimate to a new game’s control scheme than many of us. Remember when you shat all over Rocket League when you only tried that tutorial for just seven minutes? Now you’re completely in love with RL. I’m not trying to troll you or ruffle any feathers, Suns. This goes for everyone; when we amp ourselves too much, the fall is more painful.

      For sure! Very solid advice. 🙂
