Feature Release : Tournament Management Public Beta!
Wednesday, September 18th 2019
I am thrilled to announce that Tournament Management is now available to all PUBG Lookup members as a public beta.
Tournament management has been in a closed beta for a few months. Today (starting now!) you can request access to tournament management so that you can run tournaments for the community, your friends, your fans, and anyone that wants to be involved. I will be accepting everybody who requests access to this new feature. While it is in public beta I hope to get as much feedback as possible to make managing tournaments as useful and easy as possible so that organizers can focus on the games rather than the tedious hassle of manually calculating tournament scores.
Note: PS4 players don't have access to custom matches. Because of this, tournament management won't work for Playstation players until custom matches are released.
Go to tournament management.
You can assign points for placement and kills. The system is designed to be as flexible as possible. Assign high point values for kills for action packed tournaments that encourage getting involved. If you want a more tactical tournament, reward players for placement by assigning valuable points to those who make it to the top. Balance your points for the best of both worlds.
Solos, Duos, 3-Man Squads, 4-Man Squads and Teams up to 10 players
You are in control of your tournament settings. The team management interface is designed to let you enter participants as quickly as possible so you aren't spending all of your time configuring settings and teams. Once all of your tournament players are ready to go, you can create your custom matches and get into the action.
You don't need to remember match IDs
Forget writing down match IDs or trying to sift through match data to calculate your points. By assigining a "Tournament Observer" you'll be able to add matches from that player directly to your tournament processing. Your tournament observer should be the player that is casting the tournament or any player that is in all matches. After a chicken dinner is awarded the match will be available through the PUBG API and it's as easy as clicking "add to tournament". PUBG Lookup will process all players, all points, and update your leaderboard for you.
Public leaderboards and stream embeds
Every tournament comes with its own public leaderboard. Share your leaderboard URL with all participants, on social media, on your stream, and everywhere in between. Viewers and tournament players can follow along in real-time with your tournament standings. If you are a streamer or somebody is streaming your tournament for you you can easily embed your stream directly into the public leaderboard. If you aren't a streamer... no big deal... your public leaderboard will still show the latest scoring for your tournament.
That's just the beginning. There are more features and configuration options available. I hope you dig around and try it out!
There are tons of features in the roadmap for tournament management. I can't wait for you to try it out and I'm even more excited to watch some great console and PC competitions. Whether you're managing a league or just doing a one-off tournament with your buddies I hope you find this new tool useful and easy to use.
Don't forget to follow PUBG Lookup on Twitter for the most recent news.
If you take part in Tournament Management I would love to hear from you.
Thank you all for being a part of this community and I can't wait to watch some great tournaments!

Dark mode is here!
Thursday, September 12th 2019
You can finally give your eyes a break with dark mode.
The whole UI has been updated to allow for a black background with white text version of PUBG Lookup. Both the light and the dark theme are available and by default you'll see the light theme.
To enable dark mode just go to your account settings page and select "Dark Mode" in your theme settings. Click or tap update and your UI should change immediately.
If you want to take a look at some mobile screenshots check out the status update about it on Twitter.
As always, if you run into any problems or something looks funky just let me know.
Everything is back!
Saturday, August 17th 2019
The PUBG API is back in action. You should be able to view all of your season stats, match reports and everything else normally. For console players a new season is coming up soon.
Stay tuned for a season reset!
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.
