XBOX Lifetime stats update

Tuesday, January 29th 2019

Since the Vikendi release, some XBOX users were reporting that they were missing significant numbers from their lifetime stats. The way we have to calculate lifetime stats is by cycling through every season available to PUBG Lookup from the official PUBG API and compile that information into what you see on the lifetime stats page. When the Vikendi release came out the PUBG API had removed the earliest available XBOX season which represented a lot of games, wins, and kills for early players. I have implemented a fix so that the first season is now back in the calculations.

Cheers everybody. Be kind to each other and let me know if you notice any other issues!

Profile URLs and player search updates

Tuesday, January 22nd 2019

This announcement is to let you know that I'll be sending out an update today that will address some underlying technical issues related to player names and player search. This update will require an update to the URLs that are used for player seasons, player recent match stats, and player match reports.

New Player URLs

New player URLs will include the profile platform. For example pubglookup.com/players/chocotaco will now look like pubglookup.com/players/steam/chocotaco. If you have bookmarked a page with a player name in it, that link will need to be updated. I have set the URLs to be backwards compatible but that will be phased out within a month or so.

Player Search Updates

This update allows PUBG Lookup to support more players. When I launched PUBG Lookup it was primarily a small stats site that focused on XBOX players. Since then, PUBG launched on the PlayStation Network and we've moved much more heavily into PC players. This caused problems with the way I originally programmed the site to store player profiles. It's my fault. Essentially, if you had the exact same player name on PS4 as you do on XBOX you could only see one profile. They were treated as the same player. With this update profiles will be saved based on their profile name and their platform. This allows players with the same name to still use the site and see the correct stats. It should also prevent issues that some users were seeing when they searched for their name and received an error due to duplicate entries.

As with any technical update, there is the chance for some bugs to pop up. Please, please, please let me know if you see anything acting weird or if you get any 404 pages that you shouldn't be getting. It's a 1 man show over here so any help in the testing department is very much appreciated!

Cheers and be good to one another.

Beta features and more

Saturday, January 12th 2019

There have been a ton of updates getting released over the last week or so. User interface updates, beta features and some content updates made the list this time around.

Beta features

There are two new features that are available as a Beta release that I'm really excited about. One is a feature that I've wanted for a while and another is a widely requested feature.

Saving kill tree images

Now, at the top of your kill tree panel, you can click the "download kill tree" button to download a PNG image of your kill tree. Share it with friends, post it on your twitter, save it for the sweet memories. Your choice.

Favorite match reports

Many people have asked for this one. You can now mark a match as a favorite. There are two major benefits to saving match reporst to your favorites. 1. You can get quick access to them by clicking on the favorites in the navigation and 2. Favorited match reports are available for longer than normal match reports. Typical match reports are available for 2 weeks after the match. Favorited match reports are available for... Longer. It's a Beta feature and that's part of what I'm working out. Likely 4 - 5 months but we'll see.

General updates

  • Added F.A.Q. section
  • Added a contact page
  • Added totals to recent matches statistics
  • Map images in match previews
  • Match leaderboard UI Updates
  • Navigation UI Updates
  • Failed search results UI updates
  • Damage timeline UI updates

Updated Match Report UI

Wednesday, January 9th 2019

Parts of the user interface in match reports have been updated. This is to hopefully make things more clear and easier to scan. I also wanted to make it easier to jump to your teammates stats and match reports.

Updated team overview

The team overview got a bit of a style overhaul. Team members will now be listed in descending order by kills and you can now see the team's total damage in the top right corner of the panel. You can also quickly get access to your teammate's season statistics and current match report.

Added headshot accuracty and damage to damage details

In the Accuracy tab in the "Player Damage Details" panel you can now see how many of your shots were headshots. This is different from headshot kills. You'll see what percentage of shots were headshots as well as the total damage done by headshots alone.

Updating player damage timeline UI

The timeline was pretty hard to understand at a quick glance. I've updated the UI to hopefully make it a bit easier to scan. This includes background colors for different types of events and updated copy.

That's all for now. Some larger features are in the works.

Cheers all!

Feature Poll : Player Report Cards

Monday, January 7th 2019

One day left!

Check out the community poll on twitter! New Feature Community Poll

Daily and weekly report cards is a new feature idea that would send you an email either daily or weekly that has details stats about that period of play. The goal would be to provide comprehensive stats about daily or weekly sessions so you can get a better idea of how you're progressing.

Go vote and leave a comment if you have any great ideas!

Opt-in ads

Saturday, January 5th 2019

This site is community driven and funded. I have tried to keep ads off of this project for as long as possible. The time has come, though, and I'm asking you for help.

Ads for guests

Users that have not registered for a PUBG Lookup account will see ads on player seasons and match reports. If you are a registered user, you have the option to disable ads.

Opt-in ads for members

In it's current form, ads are an optional "opt-in" setting. I am trying this to see how many of the community memers are willing to look at ads to support this site and how many people would prefer to not see ads. It probably goes without saying but I know that nobody wants ads on the site. This is the best way that I could figure out without forcing it on everybody.

If you would like to support this site and this project for free you can choose to opt-in to ads. It would be very, very helpful.

Thank you again for all of the continued enthusiasm!

Update : Travel distances are back

Friday, January 4th 2019

Travel distances should now be correct for matches and seasons. This bug was only present on the steam platform and is updated as of V8.0.2 of the PUBG API.

I hope everyone had a great Christmas and holiday season. Hello to all the new players that picked it up during the break!

API bug for travel distances for PC players

Friday, December 21st 2018

At the moment there is a bug in the PUBG API that is preventing the reporting of walk distance, vehicle distance, and swim distance for PC players. The PUBG team is aware of the issue and is working on a fix for the problem.

Cheers all. Enjoy your holidays!

Vikendi is live!

Wednesday, December 19th 2018

The new snow map, Vikendi, is now live on the PC servers. Check out your recent matches for full match reports on the new map. I've also updated the Map Details section so you can see where you dropped, got kills, where the circles were located and where the care-packages landed.

Enjoy the new map and let me know if you run into any bugs!

Short links are even shorter

Wednesday, December 19th 2018

Match report short links are much shorter now. You can use a sharable short link to share your stats with your squad or let the world know about that double digit family meal you just ate. Match share links are in the match overview on all match reports! We picked up a shorter url to route it through and decreased the amount of characters we were using. Here's an example https://pglkp.com/s/awqe6. Stay safe out there. Avoid the red zone.
