LEAGUE OF LEGENDS: WILD RIFT UPDATES

Riot Games recently released a scheduled plan for the release of varied patch versions for League of Legends: Wild Rift throughout the year and one among the first patches is that the upcoming version 2.1 update. The Wild Rift team teased some early content releases for this patch and has revealed plenty of data within the process.

League of Legends: Wild Rift posted teasers on their social media handles which highlighted some new champions and skin lineup. it had been easy to guess that new champions will include Rakan and Xayah within the next update and later, a politician article confirmed these champions alongside three more.

WILD RIFT PATCH 2.1 DETAILS:

The new patch 2.1 will hit Wild Rift on 2nd February 2021, consistent with the scheduled dates, and it’ll run over two months. As Riot planned to release a minimum of two new champions per month, we were expecting four new champions during this patch but the Wild Rift team has made an additional addition and added the infamous Katarina to the list.

A new marksmen categorized champion goes to be added to the sport. Recently, Tristana and Teemo were already added within the ranged champions category and Xayah is going to be the newest addition. Her ability to shred champions will make it harder for Dragon Lane opponents to survive in matches. it’ll be interesting to ascertain if Riot has made any changes while adding her to Wild Rift or not.

RAKAN

Rakan is coming to Wild Rift alongside Xayah. This champion falls under the support category and eventually, a replacement champion is getting added to form the support experience quite differently after an extended time. The last addition was Lulu and now, Rakan is going to be the flagbearer for a brand spanking new support pick in matches. These two champions are going to be added in February.

KATARINA

A new high-APM assassin champion named Katarina is going to be added to Wild Rift. Her release date isn’t given but as this champion is one among the long-lasting and overpowered pick from the League, she is going to bring a replacement meta of assassins together with her.

PANTHEON, LEONA, AND DIANA

Three new champions named Leona, the Radiant Dawn, Diana, Scorn of the Moon, and Pantheon, the Unbreakable Spear are going to be added to Wild Rift in March 2021. Leona is going to be a support pick whereas Pantheon and Diana are going to be Baron lane priority picks.

NEW EVENTS

Two new events are going to be added to Wild Rift during this new patch. the primary event goes to be the Lunar Beast event which can run in February and therefore the next big event is Path of Ascension, which can be available within the month of March. watching the previous events, it’s possible that new champions might be procured from these events.

NEW SKINS: OMEGA SQUAD AND PROJECT

Two new skin line-ups are going to be launched in Wild Rift very soon. the primary one might be Omega Squad and it’s quite possible that Teemo is going to be getting a replacement skin through this. subsequent skin is termed as Project and within the featured image, we get to ascertain a sci-fi skin of Zed.

NEW FEATURE: SPECTATOR MODE

After an extended wait, Wild Rift is finally adding a replacement spectator mode through which, players can replay their previous games and analyze their matches, and even spectate their friends. The spectator mode is additionally added for custom matches and hence, the Wild Rift esports can finally be kickstarted by having a fanatical viewing mode to custom matches.

These are all the additions that are officially revealed to date. Riot has stated that a lot more features aren’t added to the present list for now and players can directly see these new additions in-game or through official patch notes when the update is launched.

FINAL FANTASY XIV: A REALM REBORN UPDATES

The latest patch for FINAL FANTASY XIV: Shadowbringers has arrived. It adds a wealth of latest content to the sport, including new main scenario quests, a fresh raid dungeon featuring a boss designed by the legendary Tetsuya Nomura, and a few challenging new foes.

New Main Scenario Quests: Futures Rewritten

The epic story continues. Now that Elidibus has been defeated and therefore the fate of the primary secured, the Scions make their return to the Source. But within the new future they now look towards, will that which is written upon the pages of history be an anthem of hope.

New Raid Dungeon: Eden’s Promise

Patch 5.4 brings the third chapter of this 8-player raid series. It returns to the story of Ryne and her mysterious counterpart Gaia, who have successfully restored balance to the weather of the Empty (with the assistance of the Warrior of sunshine, of course).

The raid is full of exciting new challenges – including a replacement boss designed by KINGDOM HEARTS director and FINAL FANTASY series veteran, Tetsuya Nomura. It’s available in normal and savage difficulties.

New Dungeon: Matoya’s Relict

Once home to a number of the best crafters in Eorzea, the Makers’ Quarter now lies forgotten and in ruins. That won’t be the case for long though – you’ll explore the previous workshop of the Archon Matoya alongside fellow players, or with a celebration of NPCS through the Trust system.

Chronicles of a replacement Era: The Sorrow of Werlyt

Previously, you and Gaius managed to defeat the Sapphire Weapon, and in doing so are one step closer towards ending the Empire’s warmachina development project. However, information points to a replacement threat lurking within the shadow, the Emerald Weapon.

New Trial: Castrum Marinum

The information was correct – the Emerald Weapon is real and close to being unleashed on the planet. Spearhead a surprise attack on this green-hued menace during this trial which will be played in both normal and extreme difficulties.

New Unreal Trial: The Navel (Unreal)

Titan has been powered up and is close to being unleashed upon level 80 adventurers. This primal battle provides a tougher challenge and an opportunity to earn unique prizes.

New “Explorer Mode”

This new feature allows you to revisit previously completed Shadowbringers dungeons to explore and take screenshots without having to stress about enemies distracting and photobombing you. you’ll even summon mounts and minions to further enhance your screenshots! Live out your dreams of spamming the Limit Break wherever you’d like during this new mode and have a blast!

Additional dungeons beyond Shadowbringers are planned for future updates too.

Ocean Fishing Update

Two new fishing routes are added, the Black Shroud and Dravania, also as new mission objectives players can complete to earn bonus points and aim for even higher scores!

Square Enix announced via the official Final Fantasy 14 YouTube channel the discharge window for the game’s next expansion, Endwalker. Set to release in Fall 2021, Final Fantasy 14: Endwalker will continue the events of Shadowbringers as fans attend war with the Garlean Empire. Endwalker also introduces a replacement job (class) to the game: Sage. Touted as a healer, the Sage is going to be liable for keeping other players alive during the game’s cooperative group content.

FF14 may be a somewhat unique MMO in terms of combat mechanics. Players can chain certain abilities together counting on their class to execute devastating combo attacks while also counting on traditional MMO elements, like procs, buffs, and debuffs. Moreover, any starting character can acquire any of the game’s various jobs, with fans ready to possess up to 3 jobs (classes) per character and switch between them to satisfy different roles counting on their mood, fellow adventurers, and therefore the nature of the content they’re tackling.

While the title’s youth was rocky at the best, Square Enix has taken significant strides in improving upon the distasteful glitches, bugs, and underwhelming gameplay mechanics present in Final Fantasy 14’s original launch in 2010. When the sport relaunched with its first expansion (A Realm Reborn) in 2014, it had been basically considered a completely new game and a serious improvement over the lackluster original. Since then, each expansion has capitalized on the turnaround’s momentum, and Endwalker seems poised to continue the trend.

MINECRAFT UPDATES

FORTNITE UPDATES

Fortnite Season 5 may end with a big-bang that would destroy the whole map, again

Fortnite Season 5 is nearly coming to an in-depth. With the top of the present season, tons of the latest changes are speculated. The zero, which was exposed after the Galactus ordeal in Fortnite, has undergone tons of transformation as Season 5 progressed, and immediately, things look very unstable.

The zero has been a mysterious object within the game for a short time now. it has been opening up one portal after another through which Jonesy has been bringing in hunters from different parts of the universe. These different hunters have close and formed a metaverse of their own within Fortnite itself and are quite able to affect whatever evil the zero will cause within the upcoming days.

The zero at now of your time bears tons of resemblance with the zero back in Season X of Fortnite. Back then, the zero exploded and cause the destruction of the map, and immediately, with the way the zero looks currently, there is a high chance that the map might undergo an enormous transformation at the top of the present season.

However, the live event for the present season hasn’t been disclosed yet, so it’s really difficult to mention whether there’s getting to be anything substantial in Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 6 with regards to the map at least. Their map may transform within the new season and therefore the real battle for Fortnite Island begins the very day Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 6 begins.

Epic Games vs Apple trial starting May 3rd will decide the longer term of Fortnite on iOS devices

The Saga of Fortnite on Apple iOS devices continues because the Epic Games vs. Apple trial will begin on 3 May 2021. While expected to be drawn out, the general outcome will determine the longer term of Fortnite on Apple’s mobile platform. Over the course of 35 hours, Epic Games will attempt to convince a judge that Apple’s platform hurts developers by only offering them one transaction system, which Apple takes a deep percentage from.

After Epic Games updated its mobile Fortnite app to bypass Apple’s transaction system with one among its own, the tech giant quickly removed the sport from its iOS app store. Fortnite has been unavailable to iOS gamers since Aug 13, 2020, as Epic Games and Apple battle within the courts over the legality of Epic’s actions and therefore the monopoly Apple holds over developers by forcing them to use their transaction system to process in-game payments.

The trial on 3 May is going to be held without a jury after Apple’s initial countersuit specifically asked for an attempt by the jury. Since then, both Epic and Apple have concluded that the case is best decided by a judge.

The agreement was made so both Epic’s initial suit and Apple’s countersuit might be tried simultaneously, without the necessity for 2 separate trials.

Epic Games filed an initial antitrust lawsuit against Apple in August, once Fortnite was far away from the App Store following Epic’s introduction of an immediate payment option in Fortnite that subverted Apple’s 30% fee.

Apple has filed a countersuit, claiming Epic violated its terms of service by not paying the 30% and is seeking reparations.

MAGIC: THE GATHERING ARENA UPDATES

Magic: The Gathering Arena enters early access on Android

Wizards of the Coast finally brings its collectible cards to mobile

Over the years, we have seen a plethora of collectible card games come and go. Though one thing has remained continuing, the genre lends itself well to mobile play. to the present day, there’s still no shortage of CCGs on the Play Store, and yet there was always one title that was missing, Magic: The Gathering. Well, Wizards of the Coast has been busy performing on its digital adaptation for a short time now, and it’s called MTG Arena. it has been known the title would eventually make its thanks to mobile, but we’ve just learned that the CCG is going to be coming to Android as an early access release on January 28th, with broader support slated for later this year. Wizards of the Coast recently published a blog post on the official MTG Arena website to announce that the sport is finally getting to be available on Android later this month (January 28th). it’ll exist as an early access release for a variety of supported Android devices. These devices will be got to get on Android 6.0 or later, contain a minimum of 4GB of RAM, all while supporting OpenGL ES 3.0 or above.

CASCADE RULES CHANGE

702.84a. Cascade may be a triggered ability that functions only while the spell with cascade is on the stack. “Cascade” means “When you cast this spell, exile cards from the highest of your library until you exile a nonland card whose converted mana cost is a smaller amount than this spell’s converted mana cost. you’ll cast that spell without paying its mana cost if its converted mana cost is a smaller amount than this spell’s converted mana cost. Then put all cards exiled this manner that weren’t sew rock bottom of your library during a random order.”

For example, if you cast Bloodbraid Elf and exile Valki, God of Lies from your library, you will be ready to cast Valki but not Tibalt, Cosmic Impostor. On the opposite hand, if you exile Cosima, God of the Voyage, you’ll cast either Cosima or The Omenkeel, as each face features a lesser converted mana cost than Bloodbraid Elf.

This change isn’t limited to double-faced cards. It also changes the way cascade works with anything that features a “dominant” set of characteristics, just like the Adventurer cards from Throne of Eldraine. for instance , if Bloodbraid Elf causes you to exile Fae of Wishes, you’ll cast Fae of Wishes, but you’ll not cast Granted.

Finally, the interaction between split cards and cascade is unchanged; the converted mana cost of a split card is that the total converted mana cost of its halves. If you cascade into a split card with lesser converted mana cost than the spell with cascade (remember, count both halves), you’ll cast either half without paying its mana cost.

MOBILE LEGENDS: BANG BANG UPDATES

Team World Challenger and Laus Playbook Esports have qualified for MPL PH S7

The MPL PH has finally locked in two last teams for its seventh season. After sizing down a record-breaking registration pool of over 3,000 teams, Team World Challenger and Laus Playbook Esports dominated the 8-team playoff bracket and proved that they’re able to join the PH league.

Rising contender Team World Challenger was a moment favorite within the tournament. Sweeping every series throughout the upper bracket, the team faced returning MPL PH S3 champs ArkAngel within the upper bracket final.

Despite rising against a more known team, WORK stood their ground with some worthy trades. In exchange for an inhibitor turret within the top lane, the WORK squad claimed the Lord and a couple of easy kills to initiate a stronger split-lane push.

In the final push, Chuuu managed to select off Saxajago’s Lancelot after he made a miscalculated dive right at the bottom inhibitor. With AA’s main damage dealer now out of the image, the remainder of labor alongside the Lord sieged the inhibitor for the sport one win.

Game two was a slow start for WORK thanks to ArkAngel’s efficiency in shutting down their rotations. With AA stealing two turtles and controlling most of the map, the team was just expecting Chuuu to seem for potential picks and openings.

To turn things around, Chuuu opted to dive into their jungle and bait out three enemies into the remainder of his team. With Fy’s Jawhead sending Saxajago over the wall, ArkAngel had no choice but to hitch within the fight, but with Jobert easily pinching out the squad, Chuuu and his crew easily claimed three kills, a turtle, and a turret from the clash.

Team World Challenger eventually came out on top with a huge Lord down the mid lane. Although the team wasn’t ready to seal the win on the primary attempt, Chuu took out Fall’s Benedetta during a quick scuffle within the top jungle and immediately pushed back the remainder of AA back to their base.

Mobile Legends post-M2 global power rankings: Bren Esports leads the way

The Mobile Legends M2 World Championship bound up last weekend, after five days of sensational MLBB action.

Bren Esports capped off a stellar 2020 with a well-deserved win, Burmese Ghouls stunned everyone with a Cinderella run that saw them finish as runners-up, and teams from Brazil, Japan, Cambodia, and Russia proved that MLBB is actually a worldwide esport.

1. Bren Esports

As MPL PH S6 champions, MPLI runners-up, and now M2 World Champions, Bren Esports has proven time and time again that they deserve the highest spot.

Under the wing of coach Duckey, Pheww and his crew took down both Indonesian teams at M2, beating friend twice, and eliminating tournament favorites RRQ Hoshi within the Lower Bracket Final, proving once and for all that Indonesia’s dominance over pro-MLBB has come to an end.

With a stacked seven-man roster, there’s little question that the team will do its best to defend its throne as MPL PH and World Champions.

2. Burmese Ghouls

Burmese Ghouls placed on a fantastic performance at M2 and nearly got the higher of Bren Esports, taking them space during a gripping 4-3 Grand Final.

Many underestimated the Myanmar team, but coach PVNDV has his stars, ACE, and RubyDD, playing even as well as more well-known players from Indonesia and therefore the Philippines.

The four-time MPL MM champions are going to be wanting to extend their dynasty this season, and that we don’t see anyone challenging their dominance reception. We’re looking forward to seeing more of Burmese Ghouls in the international competition.

3. Alter Ego

Alter Ego was at an enormous disadvantage at M2, as that they had to play without captain and star player, Ahmad.

Nevertheless, they still played well, and if a couple of things had gone their way, they might have easily made it further within the tournament.

Ahmad’s replacement, YAM, did well to fill in, and his world-class Yu Zhong looked very impressive. Celiboy continues to be the face of the franchise and maybe a bonafide superstar.
