A new update has been released

Friday, November 30th 2018

Hello everyone!

For those of you that have been following along, it's been a wild ride today. At this point I have a version of the code that has been relatively lightly tested (by yours truly) and should hopefully only change one aspect of the user experience. If you navigate to a new xbox profile you'll be given the option to set the region for that profile's season. The new API updates from PUBG allow the "recent matches" page to display all recent matches regardless of region (as I understand it).

PUBG is working on a new region selection process that would automatically choose the region for your match based on your network / ping. This is a good thing. In theory it means you'll be more likely placed with players of similar ping and it also means that your "recent matches" page will list all matches regardless of region selection. This is a positive move.

The new update does not yet apply to season statistics or lifetime statistics for XBOX players. Both of those still need to be associated with a region. In order to view a "new" xbox profile's season data you'll have to select the region for that profile.

If you search for a player your search selection will define the region. If you click on a player from a match leaderboard, you'll be presented with a new screen that allows you to set the region for that profile.

As always, please report any bugs as you see them. I'm available on twitter, at the bug reporting page, and by email at support@pubglookup.com

Backing PUBG Lookup Patreon or supporting with a donation

Friday, November 30th 2018

I've had a number of people ask how they can support PUBG Lookup. There are two easy ways. One is that you can donate via credit card on the donate page or you can become a Patreon backer.

I hope to add donation flair and other "thank you" elements to the application so that your player profile will stand out in the crowd.

As always... I do not expect anyone to donate and this application will always be free to use.

Cheers everybody. Stay out of the red zone.

UPDATE - PUBG Lookup will be available on a limited scale tomorrow

Thursday, November 29th 2018

Wow. You are all incredible. I never thought in the few short hours that the announcement was live that I would get the kind of response I've gotten. You have emailed, messaged me on twitter, posted comments on Reddit and I've even gotten a donation from you kind souls.

The internet is a wonderful, horrible, beautiful, nasty, kind-hearted place.

I'm going to commit to updating what I can tonight. I think that I have found a middle ground so that these pages will still be available to PUBG Lookup users.

Will remain available

  • Recent Matches
  • Match reports
  • Recent Match Statistics

What will (likely) not be available

  • Season statistics
  • Lifetime statistics

I will do my best to get as much of the site back to fully functional as possible. I hope that those of you that use this site regularly will stick around and I hope that I can make it continue to work like it always has in the next few days. Good thing the weekend is coming up!

You all have been very, very heart warming for a nerd with a passion project. Thank you for speaking up.

PUBG Lookup is shutting down tomorrow.

Thursday, November 29th 2018

The API team has made changes to the way we make requests to their system. These changes will break the vast majority of requests that we make to their system. Without a significant investment of time to re-work a huge portion of PUBG Lookups requests it will stop working tomorrow, November 30th.

The fragmentation of the API is just getting worse and worse. This is a project that I built for the community and for fun. It costs money to run it and now with this new update it just doesn't make sense to try to keep it going. To the thousands and thousands of users that have enjoyed this site... I really appreciate you all. To everybody that was so encouraging on Reddit... I appreciate you all so much more. The kindness in this community is fantastic. I just don't have the hours in the day to keep up with PUBG's breaking changes.

With immense sadness... We'll be shutting down tomorrow. If I can find the time to re-work the system or if PUBG updates their API to not be so fragmented between platforms then I will be able to bring it back online.

Thank you all. From the bottom of my heart.

Player health in Player Damage Details - Timeline

Monday, November 19th 2018

PUBG tracks a player's health down to two decimal places. This means that you or somebody you are fighting can have a health of 0.01 and still be alive. In the damage timeline, this was represented as 0 but not dead. I've udpated the timeline to show decimal places when the player has less than 1 health and is still alive. If you've ever spectacted a player that just killed you and has seemingly zero health... that's why. Cheers all!

Lifetime stats have been updated

Thursday, November 15th 2018

Lifetime statistics should now show the correct information. I was able to locate an issue that was causing an entire season of data to not be considered in the lifetime statistics calculations. If you are still seeing problems with your stats, please submit a bug report and I'll dig into it! Cheers everybody and thanks for your patience!

There was a DDOS attack earlier today

Tuesday, October 30th 2018

It appears to be ongoing. I am moving some things around to try to mitigate the attack and get the site back to normal. You might notice some interuptions during this process.

Set your default home page

Saturday, October 27th 2018

Did you know that you can set your default home page? If you are logged in and you go to https://pubglookup.com it will send you to your default home page. This can either be your season stats or recent matches. Check it out in your account settings.

PUBG has updated the API for only PC players

Monday, October 22nd 2018

To all of the PC players on PUBG Lookup : the PUBG API team recently changed the API but only for PC players. This means that PUBG Lookup can no-longer rely on the same information to be returned for both XBOX players and PC players. I'll be implementing these updates as soon as possible and hoping that they don't fracture the API much more!

Adding South America to XBOX server regions

Thursday, October 11th 2018

PUBG recently released a new server region for South America. I've added the server region to the player search dropdown. The region was just released today. Good luck hunting those dinners to my friends to the south!
