Diablo 3 - Season 10 Event
With Season 10 starting on the 31st March at 8 PM EST, there's of course going to be a big event!
Everyone will be gathering on TS to start sorting out groups by no later than 7:30 PM EST, preferably 7 PM EST, on the 31st of March. Expect a lot of people to be there as always, so better come early or sign up for groups beforehand.

We hope to see you at the event, ready to roast some demons :smile:

You want to help out our Recruiting Teams and bring new people in?
@Artega & @KittyMae to join the Looking For Group (LFG) Team!
You'd be scouting for people, who are looking out for clans and invite them to us.
@Baum to join the FPS or Survival Recruiting Team.
In the FPS section we got games like Overwatch, Counterstrike and Battlefield to recruit for, while the Survival Section includes games like ARK: Survival Evolved, H1Z1 or Rust, etc. You'd simply be maintaining a thread for said game and keep it updated and bump it as you were assigned to.
@Ballbuster, @Hemera & @Clavat, if you would like to recruit for our Overwatch community in the game.
That means, you'd be part of the Recruiting Team, but wouldn't have to bump any threads with recruiting messages. Instead, you would recruit for us in the game itself (for example if you play with a random person who seems nice and fun to be around with, then invite them to play more and also to our clan). Overall, just reach out to people to grow our little community!
Sometimes our gaming sections need some fresh blood and help to either start up or keep going!
So, if that sounds interesting to you, contact...
@Thundernut & @Kimenu are looking for people who'd like to officially start forming a gaming section for For Honor, as it is a great game with a lot of potential.
@Baum, who is in need of an officer (2LT+) or enlisted member (which would be supervised by him then) to take over the Heroes of the Storm - Nexus Academy.
You would have to host the academy at least once every two weeks for anyone who's interested. Plan out what tactics (for specific maps or enemy teams, etc) or team compositions you should cover and help players improve their gameplay and focus every week on something different. See it like an educational gamenight with coaching.
Bring in your own ideas and help your fellow players out!
@Ballbuster, @Hemera & @Clavat, if you'd be interested in becoming a Squad Coordinator for Overwatch.
Your job would be to organize the people who want to be placed in a competitive team, and work together with the League/Tournament Coordinators as well to run everything properly at events.
Would you like to keep us updated about patch-notes, new upcoming content or create guides and even whole articles all by yourself?
@efgodlike, @Hemera or @Requ1em if you'd like to become a Content Creator in general, for any section you'd like! Just message one of them and talk it through with them to get started.
Right now though, they're especially looking for people interested in Dungeons and Dragons and Path of Exile!
Do you like being active in our forum and help our community?
@PapaRussia if you are a 2LT or higher and want to join the Awards Council.
The job has everything to do with the Awards System in Fever. Daily tasks include checking Award Requests, participate in discussions about new and upcoming awards and looking for awards that need removed. After some time on the Awards Council most will pick up a weekly task as well. Such as make sure all the Service Commendation Awards are up to date or make sure the Likes Awards are given out.
@Baum, to be a Heroes of the Storm Company Administrator.
Your job would be to check the stickied posts for possibly outdated content and keep the mention- and mailing-list always updated, etc.
@neondevil, who is in the need of someone to become a Smite Company Administrator.
You'd be required to check stickied posts for possible outdated content and upkeep the mention- and mailing-list, etc. So good grammar and communication is a huge plus, just like having basic knowledge of the game itself, so you know what you're talking about.
Are you an out-going person who would like to represent our clan on social media and get in contact with others?
Then consider contacting...
@Lustrum who is looking for new members for the Facebook Team!
You would have to post regularly on our facebook and follow the team's instructions to represent and promote Fever.
@Doiri for becoming a Streamer or Host for the Fever Streaming Team.
Catch some attention from people with your stream and make them interested in our community!
@Rimeraz if you would like to become part of the Fever Youtube Team.
The Youtube Team is still trying to build up at the moment and get their hands on active people who would like to upload videos of their gameplay (that may be only you playing, or also sharing some fun times that you spent in a game with your friends - for example from a gamenight). Getting about two videos per month from each teammember would be ideal of course, to have new content on our channel every week!
If you would be interested in joining the team, then please also keep in mind that you will have to follow both Youtube's and Fever's rules and guidelines regarding the content you upload.
If organizing a game night and keeping people entertained is a thing you'd like to do, then contact...
@KittyMae, if you'd be interested in becoming an Event Night Host!
That basically entails hosting any sort of gathering that doesn't involve any of our main games. For example already hosting Cards Against Humanity and generally things along those lines.
@Niine, who is looking for people to help her with hosting regular CS:GO Game Nights.
If you’re interested in becoming a game night host for that game or got any further questions, please let her know!
@Baum is looking for people willing to be a Game Night Coordinator (2LT+) or Game Night Hosts for Heroes of the Storm.
As Coordinator you would have to take care of all the Game Night Hosts under you, and see to it that everybody does their jobs and logs the Game Nights properly.
If you would like to be a Game Night Host instead, you may host these at any time you like! Just make sure that they run smoothly and everyone behaves well. Also take note of who is attending the events, so you can report back to your Coordinator. You can of course try to think of certain themes for your Game Nights to make them more interesting - for example using heroes of a certain game only, or 'roleplaying' the characters you play as, etc.
It's all up to you to create a fun event for everyone!
@Ballbuster, @Hemera & @Clavat, who are looking for someone to host Overwatch Game Nights regularly.
Just make sure that things run smoothly during the events and write down the names of the people who are joining in, so you can report that to your superiors.
@Ballbuster, @Hemera & @Clavat, to become a League/Tournament Coordinator for Overwatch!
You'd work together with the team to start up some Leagues and Tournaments for Fever's Overwatch community, and also host them to oversee everything. Of course, also take notes of who is attending the events, so you can give out Fever Coins to each participant.
We want to officially welcome all of you to our community!
If you would like to say hello to us, then you could introduce yourself here - if you haven't done so yet - or directly in the sections of the games you're playing, to find people to play with right away.
We hope you will find your place and friends here in the clan - and also show yourself on our TeamSpeak regularly :smile:

League of Legends - New coach for Team Liquid
Jang "Cain" Nu-ri (장누리)
Cain is also listed in Riot Games’ player database as being signed to Team Liquid until November 20, 2017. He was previously the assistant coach for Cloud9, whom he worked with from the beginning of the 2017 Spring Split. Notably, it is not known if coach David “DLim” Lim is still with the team, as his name is not listed in Riot’s database.
According to a comment, Team Liquid is going to great efforts to improve their performance in this split and avoid relegation, after the departure of their Mid Laner Greyson “Goldenglue” Gilmer (who was replaced by AD Carry Chae “Piglet” Gwang-jin).
CS:GO - ESL One & EPL VAC rules changed
The new rule will debut at IEM Sydney, and after reaching out to ESL, the tournament organizer has confirmed that the same rule will be used at future IEM and ESL One tournaments, as well as in Pro League from next season. The only exception to the rule will still be Valve-supported tournaments, such as the Majors.
This now means that players like Joel "emilio" Mako, dream3r, Hovik "KQLY" Tovmassian, Gordon "Sf" Giry and Anil "cLy" Gülec will get another chance to compete at the highest level of CS. Players who have been banned for match-fixing do not fall under this rule, however, and will remain suspended indefinitely.
The original StarCraft will be free to download and play!
Looks like Blizzard is really hell-bent on introducing one of their classics, the iconic RTS StarCraft to a new audience, as well as confirming plans for the StarCraft: Remaster (Release date being Summer 2017). Now the video game titan also plans to re-release the original StarCraft game - and this time for free!
While it's not certain if it’s going to be free to grab forever or only for a certain period of time, Blizzard is definitely going to slash 100% of the game’s pricing and it will happen soon, later this week to be exact once the Patch 1.18 for StarCraft: Broodwar goes live.
So if you’re planning to grab the original StarCraft once it goes free, then we suggest that you go for the StarCraft Anthology pack on the Blizzard shop as it already includes the base game, StarCraft, and its titular (and only) expansion, StarCraft: Brood War.
Destiny 2 is confirmed
But when will it be out? What’s new with Destiny 2? Are we getting more cool-looking guns? Will Peter Dinklage be back to voice the new Ghost?
Well, all of those questions will have to be answered at a later date as aside from confirming that the game does exist, both Bunge and ActiVision is yet to release more details about the upcoming Destiny sequel.
Although if you really want something to look forward to about Destiny 2, then you can keep in mind that a leaked poster, which is supposedly shipped to an Italian game retailer shows a Sept 8, 2017, release date, and some additional leaked info from Eurogamer suggest that it will enter a beta phase for the PS4 this coming June 2017.
News about Hearthstone's 'Year of the Mammoth'
For doing nothing more than showing up, you get:
- March 29: 50 gold
- March 30: Mean Streets of Gadgetzan card pack
- March 31: 100 Dust
- April 1: Whispers of the Old Gods card pack
- April 2: Journey to Un'Goro card pack
- April 3: 50 gold
- April 4: Journey to Un'Goro card pack
- April 5: The Golden Volcanosaur. Just look at that thing!
March 29 will also see the beginning of the second Year of the Mammoth-themed Tavern Brawl, with another Journey to Un'Goro card pack on the table for achieving victory. The previous Mammonth-themed Brawl, Decorating Stormwind, had players attacking the AI-controlled city of Stormwind in order to decorate it for the upcoming Year of the Mammoth celebrations.
Months Later, OneShot Gets A New Ending
First, the short version: OneShot just got a new update. It contains an entire new path through the game that results in a new ending. It’s meta and weird and awesome. This update, though, has a story behind it, a tale that’s weaved its way into the fiber of the game as well as the game’s community. But in order to tell it, there's gonna be some spoilers ahead!
Previously, when you finished OneShot once, you received a note from somebody known as “The Author” saying you could repeat the game as much as you want, because he believed he could change something with your help, but it would take a while. On subsequent playthroughs, you would then come across a large countdown clock over a locked door.
Players couldn’t figure out what to do with it. Just for good measure, they datamined the crap out of the game, but they couldn’t find anything. That - said a developer named Gir - was by design. “The only real defense against datamining is to have no data to mine,” they explained, simultaneously dunking on every person who’s ever tried to open their metaphorical Christmas presents early.
Eventually everyone settled on the idea that some kind of update was coming. Months later, it turns out they were right!
After a small patch last week that changed some dialogue and paved the way, the big Solstice update finally dropped. If you download the patch, a written note from The Author appears in your IRL computer’s documents folder. In it, he claims he can change the ending if you go through the door and start a new playthrough. You can then find an entire new plot-line and ending to the game. It’s pretty nuts, much like the rest of OneShot.
New Trailer for 'Shiness: The Lightning Kingdom'
Shiness is set in the middle of a war between multiple kingdoms on what are known as the Celestial Islands, caused by the planet Mahera’s breakup. You play as Chado and his companions. This conflict may be brought to a peaceful outcome through Chado’s ability to communicate with a mysterious magical spirit known as the “Shiness.”
Gameplay involves dynamic combos that mix magic spells and talents with combos, parries and blocks. Both your physical and magic skills can be developed throughout the game. Quests and side-quests give players the ability to develop their characters, as well as their reputations within the game world.
PC pre-orders for Shiness: The Lightning Kingdom are now open at 15% off and can be purchased via Steam here. Pre-order purchases include the official Shiness manga as well as the original soundtrack.

Intel Optane Memory looks to speed up your slow hard drive
The name is a bit misleading, but the idea is to have an intelligent SSD cache that will help improve system performance, and it will do so whether you’re using a pokey old 5400RPM HDD or a faster SATA SSD.
To put things bluntly, you can currently buy a 1TB 5400RPM hard drive for about $40-$50 (for a laptop or desktop drive). Now tack on $44 for the 16GB Optane Memory and we’re talking about $90 or so for a hard drive plus SSD cache. Alternatively, you could buy a 240GB SATA SSD for $80, or get the 480GB model for $130. And the great thing about going with a larger capacity SSD is that your storage performance will always be ‘fast’ (relative to a hard drive). I’ve been steering people toward 240GB and even 480GB SSDs for several years now, and I can’t see any reason to go back to recommending a hard drive as your boot disk—it’s just a painful experience IMO.
Intel argues that 240GB isn’t a lot of capacity, so if you have a lot of images, videos, etc. taking up space you’d need a secondary HDD regardless, and that’s true. And while some users get confused by having two storage devices, it can be said that anyone that can’t figure out how to use two drives these days is likely the type of person that’s also not storing more than 100GB of data. Anyway, Optane Memory is supposed to be this crossover where a user can get both capacity and performance at a reasonable price.

$70 portable hard drive lets you store 2TB of files or PS4/Xbox One games
Seagate had a spotty reputation a few years ago, but it seems like they’ve cleaned up their act; this model is the current Wirecutter recommendation, and is has a stellar Amazon review average from over 11,000 customers.
