PUBG: Duo win in Erangel with Billy Housh

If I had to choose a favorite mobile app right now, it would definitely be the PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds (also known as PUBG). This game is literally one of the most adventurous, digital escapisms I have ever experienced. As strategic as it is, this fascinating game is about survival, kills, damage, supplies and support. Each one is as unique as the player who embraces them and together will determine your overall rating of each play.

Completing missions is also quite an incentive when playing this game. And the elite royal pass is definitely worth the splurge, as you can complete quite a few more missions and gain a lot of great items in the process. I first heard about this game through my boyfriend Sumit, who has been playing since the game started last year.

Tonight, I decided to play duos with my friend Billy, who I have known for over 10 years. He's always been a gamer and streamer, so it is always fun playing with him because he is a safe yet destructive player that can kill and camp according. With that said, I just achieved my first "chicken dinner" (which is basically what you receive when you win the game) with Billy in a duo match on the Erangel map in classic mode.

I killed a total of 5 players in addition to the final player (luisdonal94) to receive the big win at the end. I received a total of 720 BP for my win. With 708 in experience, I had a kill rating of +74 and a survival rating of +59 for a total rating tonight of +73 which isn't that bad. I was also able to achieve both the "chicken master" and "medic" titles.

Amazing right?

This mobile game is literally too fun. And although I win some, I also lose sometimes too. Most of the time; however, I find myself in the top 10. I tend to join squad matches most, but I love to play duo and solo from time to time also.

With that said, if you haven't played PUBG, you truly need to.

5 Ways To Win People Over In An Argument

Winning an argument is a lot harder than you realize. An argument has several sides that are connected to one valid point. Each side, however; is connected to several points which deliver full dimensional reason and logic that is either "pro" or "con". It is entirely up to you to make your point and be done.

But, how easy is it to make your point? The reality is it is not easy. Especially if the people you are arguing with are tough. So, how do you win people over in an argument?

1. Be Confident. Possessing knowledge is one thing because in actuality knowledge is such a powerful yet useful tool. Being confident in the knowledge you have is what winning an argument is all about. If you are not confident, you will never win anything especially arguments.

2. Use Deconstructionism. An extensive vocabulary is impressive, however; it doesn't always work. What does work though? Deconstructionism. Surprisingly when you present your points to the appropriate third parties nothing is more rational than expressing yourself using slang that they have a hard time translating.

3. Be Aggressive. Building a strong, solid foundation is the key to winning just about any argument. As you build your argument and create supporting facts to why you possess the logic and reasoning that you do, you can then apply those facts and present them in a fashion that is sturdy. Eventually your opponent will know that you are not going to back down without a fight.

4. Avoid Ad Hominem. Unfortunately the sticks and stones rule applies heavily when winning people over in argument. Insulting another's logic with an actual tangible or intangible insult is quite banal and is a lot like looking in the mirror and pointing to yourself saying "you you you". It makes you look like a narcissist and narcissists never win arguments.

5. Make Your Point. If you believe in something, make sure that you deliver your argument instantaneously. No one likes explanation unless they ask you for it. If someone is trying to win an argument over you, more than likely they will continue expressing themselves through dialogue without question. There is nothing more annoying than fluff.

A wise individual once said that giving up is as good as losing and losing is as good as death. Although one can object, there is a lot of truth to this quote. Luckily, you don't have to be the loser today.
