Thread Is Discord killing the internet message board?
There are a lot of super active forums out there funny enough. Communities that most people don't even think of have huge boards to this day. I think Discord is a very good supplement to forums tho. Even small communities might be better off in a Discord server. There's no cost and super simple to setup. I use both, of course. Discord mainly discussions with some buddies of mine and a couple ERA communities.

Thread Want to browse without ads? Sign up for Era Clear!
Ever since our inception, members have frequently asked us for a way to support the site directly without needing to view ads. We're delighted to report that we can now provide such an option! Introducing Era Clear: That's right! For $3.99 a month or $39.99 a year, an Era Clear subscription will remove all advertisements on ResetEra while you are logged into your account. As an Era Clear subscriber you can retain the cleanest possible browsing experience while taking pride in giving something back. However, while we appreciate your support, we cannot offer any other benefit or consideration over other members. You will still be expected to follow the rules. If you happen to get banned, we will cancel your subscription for you. You will remove all ads from the site, including on mobile, as long as you are subscribed and logged in to your account. You should find an option titled 'Account Upgrades' when hovered over your Avatar which looks like this: You can also access the page by going to your personal preferences: This will allow you to sign up for one of the two subscription options. We offer two types of subscriptions: Era Clear Monthly is $3.99 per month. Era Clear Yearly is $39.99 per year. These are subscriptions which will charge you on a regular basis, every month or year respectively, after you sign up. You will be able to cancel your subscription at any time and still receive the full length of time you paid you for. Example: If you subscribe to Era Clear Yearly and 5 months later decide to cancel the subscription, you will still receive the remaining 7 months that you paid for. The subscription will then expire and not be renewed. Within a matter of minutes all ads should be removed from the site while you are logged in. This will apply to both your desktop and mobile browsing experiences! Because we use PayPal to handle payments, the system is connected to your forum account and will automatically make the change. Hopefully it never comes to that! Just in case, the system does account for the possibility. Members cannot access the site while banned, meaning that the usual avenues for cancelling a subscription will be unavailable. Therefore, depending on the length of the ban, the subscription will be cancelled for you. Example: If you are subscribed to Era Clear Monthly, have 25 days left, and get banned for 1 day, your subscription will not be cancelled as you will still have the opportunity to come back and do it yourself. However, if you have 2 days left and get banned for 1 day, your subscription will be cancelled to prevent you from being charged again. We have made the decision not to gate any special features, functions, or status behind a paywall. The idea is that members should feel equal and have access to the same forum experience. We offer Era Clear to serve those who don't want to see ads but still want to support us. We hope that you will consider whitelisting us. We do everything we can to try to ensure that our ads are as safe and inoffensive as possible. That said, we will not ban you for using an ad blocker. Just try not to brag about it; that's rude not just to us but also to the paying subscribers. Your first point of contact should be , , or . Any staff member will be able to relay a message to us but it'll go faster if you cut out the middleman. Feel free to reach out with any questions or concerns before, during, or after the subscription process.

Thread Why doesn’t ResetEra mobile support OLED?
This is one of the reasons. Pure, true black does not function as well on most LCD screens as it does on OLED devices. Another reason is that simply the number of users that visit the site on a OLED mobile device is very minuscule. The numbers don't support tailoring a very popular theme style to a handful of users. We might look to have a separate OLED style theme in the future, but currently, we aren't looking to tailor a Dark theme strictly for OLED devices at this time.

With a game like this, sometimes it is best to just step away for a little bit. I'm in the other boat myself. Before the patch, I wasn't getting many kills, but now I'm getting 5-6 a game almost. In solos as well. The aiming seems pretty great to me now whereas before I had to compensate a bit more than now.

Thread PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds Xbox Game Preview |OT| Jump Out
The issue is you're comparing a game that's had consistent patching and changes over a couple years to a game that just released in Game Preview. This game has never been advertised as a game that is super polished or feature complete. Even on PC, it is just now leaving Early Access in a couple days. The game preview program is exactly what you say you don't want to be. A way for us to "guinea pig" a game. Expecting a game in the game preview program to be running wonderfully at launch shouldn't be expected. I bought Ark on game preview and it ran worse than PUBG does now for me. I'll take that. It definitely isn't for everyone tho, and some people can't take the framerate or bugs that are in what we have now in the game, and that's totally cool. But, if people are having fun with the game as it is right now, that's all that matters and it should improve because there are definitely things to improve upon.

I agree. I don't think this is in the state that the poster is saying in the quoted portion. In the version we have now, its playable and more importantly it's fun. It will get improved, im sure, and in the interim we will continue to have a good time with it.

Some people can't understand other people having fun with things that aren't fun to them or they think shouldn't be fun. Not sure, why. Even with all it's issues - which the game does have - if this is the baseline of the game that continues to get improved going forward, count me in for the ride. It's such a fun game that has it's hooks in me very strongly.

Played a match of duos with a buddy. A couple of quick impressions. I'm on the X1X for the record. -There are framerate hitches when you're in the starting island and when parachuting down, but it wasn't too terrible for me. Once you're on the ground tho, it was super smooth. I was actually surprised by how smooth it was. -Controls feel good, but definitely need to get used to them and all the little things such as using the DPAD and inventory management. It does seem like they tuned it well, but you definitely need to play more to get a feel for it. -Graphics seem okay. Honestly, not what I love about PUBG, but they do seem well enough thus far. -Gunfights are a ton of fun. Had 4 kills my first match and being able to add attachments and gear and all that makes it an awesome experience each match. I think this is a clear example of this game is going to be constantly updated and made better. Not trying to compare the two, but Fortnite also started a bit off, before being what it is today - a BR game I consider to be pretty fun. It's going to be interesting to see how it goes from here, but so far, I am all in. I had a blast.

They haven't given a specific timeline on how long it will last in the game preview, but they have said they hope to have the PC version and Xbox version have updates out for both platforms at the same time. If you've played Fortnite on the Xbox, it is a similiar experience to that. Not quite the same game, but if you found Fortnite to be fun, you might enjoy PUBG a lot as well. I would guess that'll be a yes! But thats what the game preview is for! So just have fun and enjoy the ride. It will! Putting up the OT a bit earlier than I would have liked, but I will be updating it as we go with more info, videos, impressions. All that jazz. Nope. That's all I have to say on that.
