Rules of Survival

My iOS gaming these days is limited to playing pretty much one game - Rules of Survival, a great PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds (PUBG) clone for the iPad.  Despite disliking most competitive online shooters, the awkwardness in the controls is a benefit to me, since my lack of skill compared to other players isn't as much as a handicap, comparatively speaking.

Another reason I enjoy the game is that it is as much about hiding and sneaking as it is about shooting.  My typical strategy is:
  1. Jump off the airplane as soon as allowed,
  2. Glide as far as fast as possible, getting to ground quickly,
  3. Gather as many supplies as possible from the nearest buildings,
  4. Start heading toward the center of the safe zone,
    1. Using a vehicle, if possible,
    2. Otherwise, running (when concealed) or crawling (in open),
  5. Take opportunity shots against other player only if I'm almost guaranteed a kill,
  6. Hang out in the middle of the safe zone until end game, letting the other players and the constricting safe zone winnow out the competition.
I've been in the final 2 one time, and in the top 3 more than a few times.  I haven't yet come out on top yet, but hope to sometime.  But even without coming out on top, the game is a blast to play.
