League of Legends Worlds 2018 kicks off with an esports bang
Riot Games kicked off Worlds 2018 this weekend with the start of the knock out matches.


It's a major week for League of Legends esports fans as the Worlds championship tournament gets underway with the group stages commencing on October 10. It's also possible to throw your name into the hat to represent Crystal Palance Football Club in the ePremier League.

Riot Games kicked off Worlds 2018 this weekend with the first handful of games . The Playin Knockout rounds included Cloud9, Gambit, G2, and Infinity and the first two matches saw Cloud9 and Edward Gaming win over Gambit and DetonatioN FocusMe, respectively.
The group stage commences on October 10, which is when the Worlds tournament really steps up a gear. If you somehow missed yesterday's games, be sure to catch up on the official Riot Games Twitch.


The Premier League and EA Sports have teamed up in the UK to launch the new ePremier League tournament. All 20 Premier League clubs will be represented in the tournament, giving players of FIFA the opportunity to wear the kits of their favorite clubs on the big stage.
Crystal Palace is but one of the clubs that will take part in the new tournament. PlayStation 4 and Xbox One consoles are included in the tournament and registration for the ePL will open on December 3.




Destiny 2's October updates

This time, Bungie breaks down what's coming up in the next couple of patches, plus it confirms the Festival of the Lost will kick off on October 16, 2018, "with a celebration of lost heroes and a new challenge to tackle".

"Be it Power, Triumphs, Exotics, or quests, there was an aim to achieve. Ever since Cayde-6 met his doom in the depths of the Prison of Elders, we’ve shared a journey through the discoveries in Forsaken," writes dmg04. "Week after the week, the community conversation has been dominated by the revelation of new secrets and challenges. Some of you have lamented the fact that’s it’s been hard to keep up, but all of these things still await you."

Destiny 2 Update 2.0.4 is currently slated for October 16, 2018, and introduces some quality-of-life improvements, including the ability to hover over Lost Sectors to see their name once a player has looted them, and introducing new Legendary drops Added Through Fire and Flood, Zenobia D, and Crooked Fang-4fr—so "Edge Transit will have some company".
Scouts will get a boost in PvE—including Gambit PvE enemies—plus there'll be new transmat effects, too.


Destiny 2 Update 2.0.5, on the other hand—tentatively scheduled for October 30, 2018—hopes to rebalance functionality of Distribution/Dynamo perks, boost Sword and Fusion Rifle damage in PvE further to player feedback, and increase the viability of Malfeasance in PvE and Gambit activities.Bungie is also adjusting the visibility of the Titan’s Banner Shield, making it easier for players to see through the effects, and adjusting Exotic rewards to "help reduce the number of duplicate drops".

There's also changes coming to Nightfall—your chances of grabbing a Nightfall Unique Reward will increase each time a Nightfall is completed without a unique drop—and Bungie is also adding Masterwork Cores as rewards for specific Spider "Wanted" bounties and general Scrapper bounties.

Ascendant Primeval Servitor:
Have you been a little concerned about the spawn rates of the Ascendant Primeval Servitor? You're not the only one, and Bungie now says it's making adjustments to how frequently it will appear, confirming that "during week three of the curse cycle", the Ascendant Primeval Servitor will have "almost the same chance to spawn as any other Primeval".


While it will spawn less often outside of a full-curse week, you should still see it more than you currently do.

Bungie is also developing a fix for the instances where a team will defeat the Ascendant Primeval Servitor, but the opposing team receives credit for the kill.

Diablo Announcement Hinted With In BlizzCon

The schedule for BlizzCon 2018 has been released, and it certainly seems to imply something big for the Diablo series is on the way. The event shows two planned panels for Diablo, one of which is first up after the main stage presentation where Blizzard shows off its big upcoming announcements.

First, just a half-hour after the opening ceremony, the main stage will host a "Diablo: What's Next" panel on the main stage. The conference has similar panels planned for Overwatch, Hearthstone, Heroes of the Storm, and World of Warcraft--but Diablo's is conspicuously coming first. These panels tend to delve into more details about whatever announcements came during the opening ceremonies. A second panel, planned for the following day, covers the world of Diablo and is followed by a Q&A session.Combined, those give pretty good reason to believe that Blizzard is planning to announce a Diablo project on the main stage. Earlier this year, the company announced Diablo 3 is coming to Nintendo Switch, but it would be strange to roll out the blood-red carpet just for a port.

Blizzard has also previously stated that it has multiple Diablo projects in the works. We know about one, since that tease came before the Switch announcement, but that still means at least one more is on the way too. "Some of them are going to take longer than others, but we may have some things to show you later this year," said community manager Brandy Camel.

BlizzCon starts on November 2, with the opening ceremonies kicking off at 11 AM PT / 2 PM ET. The Diablo: What's Next panel will follow at 12:30 PM PT / 3:30 PM ET.

Here's what Amazon's 'New World' MMO looks like

Amazon's New World has been in the works for some time, and while there's no release date as yet, some leaked footage from a closed beta gives us a look at what it's like to play the MMO RPG. The person who leaked the footage posted over two hours of gameplay on PornHub, of all places, and YouTube channel Less Than Epic distilled that to nine minutes of material.

The video shows off some of the hunting, gathering, combat and crafting you can experience in the supernatural colonial setting. We see, for instance, a settler try to take down a bison with a bow and arrow, and then defend himself against what appears to be a zombie.
Naturally, given the game's genre, there are survival and character progression elements, including skill leveling, though it doesn't have a class-based system. The crafting appears to ape Skyrim a little, including using a tanning rack to make leather from hides.
The footage didn't have much in the way of the game's companies (i.e. guilds or clans), structure-building or player-versus-environment features. We do, however, get to see the world map, including forest, highland, grassland and shrubland areas. Having a large game world might be important if Amazon Game Studios is to meet its goal of harnessing Amazon Web Services cloud technology to have up to 10,000 New World players per server.

Blizzard Co-Founder is Leaving the Company

World of Warcraft and Overwatch developer Blizzard Entertainment is a busy company right now. Not only is the studio preparing for BlizzCon, its annual games convention, but it is also handling a massive shake-up at the top. Blizzard’s co-founder, CEO, and president Mike Morhaime has now announced that he will be leaving the company after 27 years.

In a post published to the official Blizzard website this week, Morhaime explains that he has “decided it’s time for someone else to lead Blizzard Entertainment.” Morhaime doesn’t go into details about what made him come to this decision exactly, but the departing executive does say that he is grateful to both the “hardworking and talented people” at Blizzard as well as the fans in the community. Moreover, Morhaime confirms that he will maintain a role as an advisor to the company.

Taking Morhaime’s place at the top will be J. Allen Brack who has been at Blizzard for 12 years and has been the executive producer of World of Warcraft. Morhaime describes Brack as his ” friend, colleague, [and] trusted advisor” and also praises his “unwavering commitment” to Blizzard’s community as well as his leadership and his commitment to quality. Brack, meanwhile, calls it “a huge honor, and a tremendous responsibility” to be given the role as Blizzard CEO.

Brack will be responsible for steering the company as it prepares to release new games. Last year, Morhaime revealed that Blizzard is working on multiple new IPs. The then-Blizzard boss also revealed that the studio is in a good position to “incubate” new projects. Brack also alluded to these projects in his statement, confirming that Blizzard founder and World of Warcraft lead designer Allen Adham would join the executive team while “continuing to oversee development of several new games.”

Given that Overwatch was Blizzard’s first new IP in 17 years, it’s being seen as a big deal that Blizzard now has multiple new IPs in the oven. Brack could potentially find himself in charge of some massive new franchises, once these secretive games are released.
