While the average person looks forward to the weekend, gamers prefer Tuesdays—Team Death Match (TDM) Tuesdays, to be exact. Well, the PlayerUnknown’s Battleground MOBILE, aka PUBG MOBILE, community is in on the TDM fun, too.
Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ll be well aware that PUBG is one of the best battle royale games on the planet, with over 400 million players worldwide. Last year, the mobile version of the title dropped and became a hot download on the app stores. Recently, game developers Tencent Games and PUBG Corp released a trimmed-down version PUBG MOBILE LITE that’s aimed at low-spec smartphones.
Since its launch, South African gamers have gotten in on the action, even challenging our editor in online combat. Our team can’t get enough of the game, and it’s led to a little dissent among us because of our disagreements on a collective approach.
Players have quickly discovered that PUBG MOBILE LITE requires a different strategy to succeed and teams need to practice on a regular basis. This is why TDM Tuesdays have become quite the occasion—as well as a good place to LOL at the odd noob who goes gung-ho into the match and gets put down in record time. Confession? The odd noob is a Fortress of Solitude writer.
Check out some of the action below:
Follow the fun by jumping on the #TDMTuesdays hashtag on social media.
The good news is that PUBG MOBILE LITE is about to get better with its African servers that’ll offer lower latency compared to its international counterparts. The servers were announced to be here by the end of 2019 and it looks like everything is on track, according to PUBG MOBILE‘s official Facebook page:
“The servers are here, we’re currently optimizing our servers in-game & Beta servers are live in testing. Please choose the European drop down to experience faster latency & stay tuned to our social pages for further upcoming announcements.”
