New Age Gaming Laptop


Considering everyone one of us is a gamer and our set of equipment varies from one user to the next, I wanted to take a closer look at some of the gaming tech. I myself game on a laptop most of the time because it is easier for me and I can game anywhere there is wifi. I recently found a new laptop that is designed specifically for the gamer. It is the new Samsung odyssey z. This is a 15.6” laptop (1080p screen) with a 6-core Intel Core i7 (8th gen) and an Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060. The laptop can be configured with up to 16 GB of DDR4 RAM and up to 1TB NVMe SSD, the GPU has 6 GB of GDDR5 memory. The main problem with most laptops is the over heating. But Samsung has created a Z AeroFlow cooling system with a Z Blade Blower. This will push the heat away from the laptop allowing for a much cooler system.

WoW's top guild will stream its race to beat the brutal new raid

World-first mythic raid races are a thing of legend, and now we can finally watch them unfold in real-time.

On September 12, the mythic-difficulty version of Uldir, the first raid in Battle for Azeroth, opens up. This brutally hard version of the raid will pit raid teams against a gauntlet of eight bosses, each possessing a series of abilities that will devastate all but the most skilled and coordinated teams. And for the first time ever, WoW's top guild, Method, will stream the whole thing on Twitch—bringing an end to the mystery of World of Warcraft's mythic world-first raid races.

For decades, these races have been the soul of competitive World of Warcraft, with top guilds from all over the world racing to be the first to defeat every boss in a given raid. Doing so is a serious feat of endurance, with guilds sometimes trying to beat the same boss for 16 hours day after day. While the last expansion's raids didn't take too long to complete, some of WoW's older raids took weeks. The prize? Bragging rights for the next few months until a new raid was released and a new race began. But because the competition was so stiff, few teams were willing to stream their attempts on Twitch for fear of revealing their secret strategies, giving their opponents an edge.
It made for an awkward experience as a spectator. Players were deeply invested in who won the race but were unable to actually watch the damn thing. Instead, viewers would usually have to tune into streams by less competitive guilds who didn't care about broadcasting their attempts. That often meant that entire boss fights were a mystery for days or weeks as only the most competitive guilds could actually get that far into the raid. It wasn't until one guild actually managed to kill every boss that they'd release videos showing exactly how they did it.
"Strategizing on how to kill each raid boss plays a huge part in succeeding in the progress race," explained Method's guild leader, Sco, in a statement. "Guilds treat their strategies as top secret and as a result of this, no guild with a shot at claiming a world first has ever live-streamed this competition. We want to change that."


To that end, Method is partnering with Discord, with support from Wowhead and MSI, to stream their attempt to be the first to defeat Mythic Uldir when it opens on September 12. "It's an incredibly exciting announcement for all of us at Method," said Method's communications director, Darrie. "We cannot wait to give you all a look (and listen!) at what it's really like during World First progress."
Dozens of Method's guild members will be streaming the race from their point-of-view on Twitch next Tuesday, but Red Bull will also have a curated stream with key Method raiders and commentators live from their Gaming Sphere studio in the UK.
It sounds like the guild is going all-out to make the event special, but I'm interested in seeing if all the extra production value makes the race more compelling. At the very least, it's great that Warcraft's legendary world-first races will finally be a thing that average players can spectate. There's no telling how long it'll take Method to clear Mythic Uldir, but hopefully this will spark a new era of competitive World of Warcraft without all the secrecy.
On Tuesday, September 12, you can tune into Method's main Twitch channel to watch the race from their perspective.

Overwatch League Confirms 6 New Teams:


  • The Overwatch League has announced six additional expansion teams for the 2019 season, including two more in North America than executives had previously suggested were coming.
  • The final slate of new teams will put Activision Blizzard’s premier esports league at 20 teams in its second year, including nine outside the U.S., up from twelve teams with three outside the U.S. in its launch season that ended in July.
  • New owners include Washington D.C. real estate and technology investor Mark Ein, who has formed Washington Esports Venture to run a team in D.C., and Vancouver Canucks and Rogers Arena owners the Aquilini Group, which has bought a Vancouver team.
Also today, the Overwatch League (OWL) confirmed a SportsBusiness Daily report from August that a Toronto franchise has been sold to a consortium of investors led by OverActive Media, a venture capital shop. Among the other investors in that franchise are Penguins minority shareholder Micheal Kimel and the esports organization Splyce , partly owned by Delaware North. Former Canadian Olympic Committee CEO Chris Overholt was formally announced as president and CEO of OverActive today.
League owner Activision Blizzard had been known to be seeking at least $30M for new franchises.​
Cox Enterprises was previously announced as the buyer of an Atlanta expansion franchise this year.
Three international expansion franchises were also announced Friday: Paris, owned by DM Esports, a group led by Drew McCourt, president of the LA-based McCourt Global, which owns soccer club Olympique de Marseille; Hangzhou, China, owned by online entertainment company Bilibili; and Chengdu, China, owned by game live streaming platform HUYA Inc .Terms were not disclosed, but league owner Activision Blizzard had been known to be seeking at least $30M for new franchises, with final prices depending on local market conditions. Sources said Toronto sold for $35M.
Activision Blizzard Esports executives had said several times that this year’s expansion process would likely only include two North American teams as it focused more on other continents. But ultimately, four NA teams were added.
“We know that the difference between a good league and a great league is its owners, and we set a high bar for our first season with the caliber of ownership groups,” said Activision Blizzard Esports Leagues president and CEO Pete Vlastelica. “Every one of these expansion franchises cleared that bar and will make our league even better.”​

THQ NORDIC BUYS KINGDOMS OF AMALUR FRANCHISE


THQ Nordic has purchased the Kingdoms of Amalur franchise from 38 Studios.

The company has finalized a deal to acquire Kingdoms of Amalur and the Amalur property based on the abandoned Copernicus MMORPG project.
There's no word yet if THQ Nordic will now work on new Amalur projects in the near future.
It came out back in 2012 and features fast-paced third-person combat. The game hails from author R.A. Salvatore, Spawn creator Todd McFarlane, and Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion lead designer Ken Rolston.

IGN awarded it a 9.0, saying that "if you're looking for bang for your buck, Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning has it in droves".

One thing to note ,is developer 38 Studios gott sued by the Rhode Island Economic Development Corporation. The company took out a $75 million dollar loan it couldn't pay back, supported by Rhode Island taxpayers. In 2016 the developer was not indicted with criminal charges.
