Recent Match API Update
Friday, August 16th 2019
As some of you know the official PUBG API has been down since the August 13th patch that went out for console players (XBOX and PS4). Well, we have our update. The PUBG API team has been able to resolve the issue so new matches should be displaying again. Unfortunately it looks like all of the match data that was played during that period has been lost. That means you won't be able to recover or view any of your matches from the August 13th patch until now. It's not completely clear if those matches will count towards your season stats or not.
Here is the PUBG API official statement
Thank you so much for your patience with the issues that we've been having getting console matches since August 13. The issue has been resolved, but we're sorry to say that most of the match data has been lost. However, season stats will still be available from the start of the season. In order to see a player's season stats for a game mode, a match will need to be played for that game mode first.
As always, let me know if you have any questions on twitter or via the contact form.
PUBG console API issue
Tuesday, August 13th 2019
This announcement is for console players.
PUBG released an update for console that broke the API. That's why you aren't seeing match data for XBOX and PS4. The API team released an announcement saying that they're working on it but apparently it's a bigger issue than normal. Here are their official statements so far.
We're currently investigating an issue where Xbox and Playstation matches that have been played since last night's maintenance are not available.
We will be working to resolve this issue as quickly as possible, but downtime for console could potentially last a few days. We're sorry for the inconvenience.
As always I'll be monitoring any changes and if there is anything PUBG Lookup can do to move things along I'll do it. It's out of my hands at the moment.
Feel free to send me questions on Twitter (@pubglookup or from the contact page if you have any questions.
This is the update we've received from the PUBG API team.

PUBG API Season stats bug - fix inside
Thursday, July 25th 2019
Another update has been released by the PUBG API team. There is a bug in this update that will show your season stats as empty until you play a match in that game type. Your stats have not been lost or reset, it's just a matter of playing a match in that game type to get them to show up again.
It's frustrating and I wish there was a way for PUBG Lookup to resolve the issue but it's unfortunately out of my control.
Once you play a match your stats will be displayed again.
I will update this announcement if I hear any more news or the PUBG API team is able to fix the issue.
The PUBG API team has responded. There is no "fix" available or coming. Apparently it's an issue related to this particular release and the only way to get your stats to be visible through the API is to play a match for that game type.
Super, super frustrating. Sorry everybody. There's nothing I can do about it, though. Get out there and play some!
Here is the PUBG API team official response.
This is just a one-time issue due to the particular nature of the update to the API. Unfortunately, we can't do anything to restore the stats on our end. The only way for the stats to be visible again is for a new match to be played. I'm sorry for the inconvenience, everyone!
Recent matches bug for XBOX players
Thursday, July 18th 2019
There is currently a bug in the official PUBG API that is preventing matches from displaying. If you played matches this morning or are currently playing it's likely that your matches aren't being tracked.
I have reached out to the PUBG team and they are actively looking into the issue. I'll update everybody once I have more information.
EDIT : The PUBG API team is looking into the issue.
We are aware of an ongoing issue regarding new Xbox matches not showing up for some players as of this morning. Thank you for your patience as we investigate and work to resolve this issue as quickly as possible.
EDIT 2 : The PUBG API team has resolved the issue. All match data should be available.
The issue with new Xbox matches not showing up for some players should be resolved now. We don't believe that any data was lost.
Thanks to everybody who wrote in!
Match report kill feed issues
Saturday, June 22nd 2019
I'm getting reports that there are issues with the kill feed, kill trees, and other match report issues.
I'm looking into the problem and will update once I can sort out what has changed.
Update The kill feed and kill tree issues have been resolved. There were changes to the PUBG API that required some updates on my end. Thanks for all of the feedback! Let me know if you notice anything else.
Mobile UI Updates
Wednesday, June 19th 2019
Some semi-sort-of-large updates went out for mobile users. You'll now see new links pinned to the bottom of your screen for navigating between season stats, liftime stats, and recent matches for players. This navigation is also available when viewing a Match Report that isn't your own profile.
In that update I had to remove the "add friend" button. I'm working on getting that back in a more suitable place and should have updates out for that soon.
More updates are in the pipeline for new features and some UI changes.
Be good to each other out there!
Match Damage Timeline Updates
Saturday, June 15th 2019
Thanks to some great user feedback I've sent out an update to the damage timeline that will group knock damage together. Previously, each time your health was chunked while knocked it would display in your damage timeline as an attack. With this new update, you'll see the knock damage grouped together with a multiplier for how many times you were chunked while down.

PUBG Report integration
Monday, May 27th 2019
If you haven't used the phenomenal web app PUBG.Report you should absolutely check it out. I've release integration with PUBG Report into the Account Dashboard screen and all Match Reports. Now you can see a list of matches you have where you either killed or were killed by a streamer. Match reports will automatically look for that specific match and link you to the clip.
I hope you like it and let me know if you notice any issues!
Be kind out there.

I've created a new discord server so that you can more easily ask for help, send feature request ideas, promote your streams and tournaments, and show off your match reports.
I would love to hear about your feature requests! you can also message me directly.
I hope to see you in there.
Tournaments are coming!
Tuesday, May 7th 2019
Hello out there!
It's been a while since I've sent out an announcement. I've been working on 2 major new features and I'm happy to say that the first has been released in Beta. Tournament management is a new feature that is available to anyone who would like to have access.
If you are a tournament organizer for console or PC you can now create tournaments, manage scoring settings, manage teams and players, and share a public leaderboard with your audience / tournament participants. I've talked with a number of different tournament organizers to try to make this system as flexible as possible. I would love for you to try it out on your next tournament or just for fun with your friends.
If you would like access to the Tournament Management system please send me an email ( firstname.lastname@example.org ) or a DM on twitter @pubglookup with your account email address so that I can give you access. You'll see a new navigation link for "Tournaments". Tournament management is best viewed on a desktop or tablet device but it works on mobile as well. The amount of information that needs to be displayed makes it tough to manage on mobile, though.
I'm really looking forward to feedback and would love to hear about your tournaments. In the future I'll be adding more features for tournament promotion and registration.
Cheers! Be kind out there.
