PUBG thinks it's found a way to stop players camping in the middle of the safe zone

Over the last three days, PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds has been testing a new feature to prevent players from camping in the middle of the safe zone without engaging competitors.

"Circle squatters that felt safe not to engage the enemy will now be forced to keep it moving as a second blue zone is being added to the existing circle.

Riot Games have pulled in other studios to make games in the LoL-iverse

The other day I realised how long I’d spent in the Dota-verse. It was during my 50th hour of Dota Underlords, after 100 hours of Artifact and nearly 4000 in Dota 2. There are characters I have spent years with, albeit while treating them more as clusters of abilities than personalities. I’ve seen that world from half a dozen different angles, over the years, between genres and Dota 2’s seasonal events. It means something to me. I’d be very interested if Valve announced they were inviting other developers…

TFT best set 2 comps [9.23]

The right TFT comps can rise up and dominate your opponents, but there’s one comp that’s dominating the meta at the moment. The “Eggroll” comp is a rather easy comp to build and can be difficult to stop, but there has also a counter build if too many people are competing for the champions needed for Eggroll. We’ve also got a few other comps to try out if you want to experiment with different compositions. (more…)

Riot Games to settle gender discrimination suit for $10 million

We already knew that League Of Legends developers Riot Games had agreed to settle a class action gender discrimination law suit against them. Last night, the Los Angeles Times reported the figure (pending court approval) will be $10 million, or roughly 7.7 million. Once the lawyers have all been paid, this amounts to over $6 million ( 4.6 million) that will be shared between female employees who’ve worked at the company during the past five years. It’s a win of sorts, but still comes in the wake…

Riot will pay $10M to settle gender discrimination lawsuit

In August, League of Legends studio Riot Games announced an agreement to settle a class action lawsuit filed against it in 2018 over pervasive sexism and gender-based discrimination at the studio. The studio said at the time that its internal investigation found that "gender discrimination (in pay or promotion), sexual harassment, and retaliation are not systemic issues at Riot," but acknowledged that "some Rioters have had experiences that did not live up to our values or culture."The Los Angeles…

League of Legends is getting its most complex champion ever, and he carries 5 weapons

Riot Games says Aphelios, the "big brain, sad moon boi" who's now making his way to League of Legends, is "the most complex champion" it's ever created. That complexity is the result of his unique kit, which is so different from those of other characters in the game that Riot created a unique HUD for Aphelios to support it.Aphelios carries five weapons, each with a unique basic attack. He attacks with the one in his main hand (Q), and carries another in his offhand (R) that he can swap to at any…

Of course the Cybertruck's been modded into GTA 5

I suppose it's only a few polygons, but still, modders have acted with remarkable speed to put Elon Musk's latest meme vehicle in almost every conceivable game. While many of these Cybertruck mods are not yet publicly downloadable, several YouTube videos have appeared displaying demo models and early attempts - some of which, er, look better than others. One of the more basic models for GTA 5 has been demoed by YouTube channel Elite Rejects, with neither of the video's hosts feeling particularly…

Games of the Decade: League of Legends is the best sports game ever made

Most sports games aren't really about playing sports, so much as they're about watching sports. Or more to the point they're about making it so the sport you're watching gets to play out exactly as you'd imagine it, as a fan at home, in your head. He should have passed to him; she should have made a run there; if only he'd caught that. Playing a FIFA or a Madden is a chance to correct the wrongs of the professional players, not to play as them. You're more manager than player - and more omnipotent…
