    How hot/warm does the phone get?
    There is a dedicated heating/battery drain thread pinned in the respective device subforums. Refer to that, it should handle the heat well. But if you think it's too much then you must cut down on PUBG playing time.

    Great & Intresting write up, but still i am puzzled, what makes this game so ADDICTIVE, ability to talk to other players sounds good but not strong reason.
    I mean all this mania only bcoz you are able to talk to other players & graphics n all?

    Good question!

    Finally, someone is not asking me to fix thier PUBG gameplay! xD

    In the interview which involved 600 participants, it was found out that the most favourite feature is the ability to talk with other players, ofc that is not the sole factor that makes it addictive.

    When the data was passed on to the psychological team, it was derived that (based only on the interviews) in today's world, in a digital era we are so occupied with social media, games (and almost everything else that you do on the internet) that one has forgotten that around him exists a REAL life, REAL people. This virtual world has sucked us in.

    Other contributing factors are, Royale passes, leveling up, easy gameplay, influence from streamers... Etc!

    But it was majorly found that it allows the player an opportunity to interact and communicate with other people for almost 30-35 mins (depends on how long he will survive in the game) something which is rarer and much more difficult in real life.

    Thanks for the question!

    Yes, that makes sense, otherwise where else we talking these days to someone for good 30-40 mins, our human interaction reduced to more online chatting & rarely real talks.

    Few days back, I seen bunch of 7-8 teenager friends sitting togather, had some work in shop over there, so stayed there for 7-8 minutes, in all these times none of them spoke to each other even once. All had buried their heads in their smartphones.
    So PUBG providing we virtual world lost people atleast some real life touch.. Maybe, may be not..

    The only reason why PUBG is so popular is because the gameplay is almost realistic and also before PUBG there was no such high graphic realistic battle ground game supported on mobile devices.

    This game really spoils the quality of life and became really toxic, on the hindsight it was one of the best gaming experience I've had albeit the trade off wasn't worth the experience, very anti-productive. People are better off without this game, so quit before it takes ahold of you.
