LoL Ahri Ban Rate
Remember the last time it was revealed the Faker is getting a Hall of Legends Tribute bundle? The skin can cost up to 59,260 RP, which Riot Games defended its decision with the Game director saying it was “justified”. Because of this League of Legends players have started protesting. So what did they do? Since the Faker bundle was released. Ahri’s ban rate in the solo queue has skyrocketed. Some players are even kicking players who use the champion Ahri

NAVI AK
Do you guys know AK? A Filipino Tekken player Ranked 6th in the Tekken World Tour 2024 as of June 13. AK also secured a slot in the Esports World Cup 2024. He is also the Combo Breaker 2024 winner. Recently AK was signed into one of the biggest esports org Natus Vincere (NAVI) and he described his arrival at NAVI as the 2nd happiest day of his life his 1st will always be his recent Combo Breaker championship. So yeah represent!

Need for Speed Mobile
During the Apple WWDC24, it was -revealed that Need for Speed Mobile will be released globally this Fall of 2024. According to gamingphone.com, the app store listing is set for September 12. Unfortunately, we cannot -verify this information, then a few days after it was -revealed the game pre-registration for Android and IOS had started. Sadly it's only in selected regions currently, those regions are Hong Kong and Taiwan which will be published by Garena.

Valorant Console
Valorant is officially coming to PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S later this year. So what is the difference between PCs and Consoles? So will talk about Crossplay, Exclusive Content, Cross Progression, Anti Cheat, availability, and more. But before we start are you interested? Have you played FPS on consoles?

No PC Crossplay, Valorant will not feature universal crossplay between PCs and consoles. However, PS5 and Xbox Series X/S will offer crossplay between the two consoles. Do you know why they did this?

Additionally, Valorant on PC will not have controller support this means no player on the console can plug in a keyboard and mouse for a competitive edge
on consoles, players will be able to customize their controller configurations

No Console Exclusive Content, Valorant will not feature console-specific or PC-specific exclusives. All game updates, seasons, and shop items will be updated and rotated at the same time on all platforms. But if you are on an Xbox Games pass, subscribers will still get full access to all Valorant Agents

Cross-progression, all of your items in your inventory will be shared across whatever platforms you use this includes XP earned for your battle pass.

There will be a separate Vanguard anti-cheat integrated across PS5 and Xbox then the 128 tick rate servers and the net code Valorant uses for PC will be applied to consoles. Valorant is expected to run at 120 FPS on consoles. First, a limited beta access started last June 14 for the US, Canada, UK, Europe, and Japan

Killer Bean
Remember Killer Bean? The Bean version of Max Payne or John Wick was aired 15 years ago. Well apparently it's getting an open-world rogue-like shooter and of course, you play as a bean, a Killer Bean.

So here is the Synopsis, After being betrayed by the Shadow Agency and learning the truth Killer Bean has made it his life goal to destroy them. One interesting feature is that the story changes every time you start a new campaign. So if you are interested you can wishlist the game on Steam.

CoD Black Ops 6 File Size
Does size matter? How many Gigabytes is big? Apparently, the initially reported by Black Ops 6 300GB storage requirement reported by IGN isn't true
Developer Activision has then clarified that the current file size displayed on the title's pre-order page is not an accurate estimate apparently this was a miscommunication.

The official Call of Duty Updates Twitter account explained the listed 300 GB was not exclusively for Black Ops 6. The estimated space also took into account the full installation of Modern Warfare 2, Modern Warfare 3, and Warzone. Unfortunately, the exact download size of the new Call of Duty is unknown as of this writing. But if we check Black Ops 5 it was around 150 GB so it doesn't make sense that it will be smaller than that.

Selangor Red Gians and Liquid Echo Scrim Leaked
Are you familiar with the term scrims? or have you done one before? In the world of professional esports scrims is a must. This is where teams test game updates or new rosters. They even test new strategies for upcoming matches, so basically there is an unwritten rule with teams to never leak anything related to this scrims.

Unfortunately, an insider from a Malaysian team leaked that Team Liquid Philippines was beaten by Selangor Red Giants with a 0-4 score in favor of SRG
Karltzy also confirms this on a live stream. As a result, Teams who leak scrim results may have a hard time finding a practice partner in the Philippine region

Falcons AP. Bren coach “Ducky” says that they may not practice with teams who leak scrimmage information. He added that since he's an administrator of these scrim groups he would kick them out ban permanently as the trust is broken

Dragon Age: The Veilguard
Are there any fans of Dragon Age here? So did you watch the Dragon Age: The Veilguard trailer and gameplay? First let's talk about the trailer because the Dragon Age: The Veilguard trailer was critically disliked by the video comments and dislike plugin to Twitter. What are your thoughts?

Did Baldurs Gate destroy them that much? The primary reason is that the trailer looks like a mobile game or Fortnite, It doesn't look like Dragon Age. How about the gameplay? Did you watch it? So with all the backlash, it's time for a redemption because they also shared the gameplay trailer. Some noted it's better than the trailer, What are your thoughts?

Similar to the trailer the game's Aesthetic especially the character design feels off. Gone are the dark and gritty in favor of a colorful environment and monsters. The game is trying to be what it's not, let's just hope the game story is at least good.

But if you are interested, the game will have seven total companions. Bellara, Davrin, Emmrich, Harding, Lucanis, Neve, and Tash. What happened the the previous characters, not sure maybe they are dead like the franchise. Dragon Age The Veilguard‘s release date is set for autumn 2024 for PS5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC.

Arcane Season 2
Not sure if you watch Arcane? So Have you? Well, Season 2 will premiere in November so if you have not watched you still have time to catch up. Unfortunately, Riot Games has reportedly announced that the upcoming second season of Arcane will be the last with no plans to continue the show after season two meaning no more Arcane season 3.

It's not canceled, it just basically wraps up the story of “Arcane”, Because according to Arcane’s co-creator Christian Linke “Arcane ‘is just the beginning of our larger storytelling journey.” He added, “From the very beginning since we started working on this project, we had a very specific ending in mind, which means the story of ‘Arcane’”.

Linke also added that they will continue to collaborate with Fortiche, the animation studio behind Arcane, and concluded that ‘Arcane’ is just the first of many stories that we want to tell in Runeterra.” This means there will be more League of Legends stories if you are to choose which story or characters you want them to focus?

Twitch CEO Tiktok Feature
Not sure if you are aware but Twitch is getting a new feature for clips. Basically it's like a TikTok feed but for Twitch clips. Would you be interested? since we have so many out-of-context clips. Recently Twitch CEO Dan Clancy demoed this on an interview with NateGentilze’s live stream. As described the TikTok-like feature was revealed.

However, if you know TikTok it recommends videos based on your preference and oh boy Dan Clancy’s Twitch clip feed is filled with hot tub streamers. It didn't end there, Twitch also has plans to have stories that are like Facebook or IG Stories. So this shows in the stories of who you follow. Similar to the clip feed it was a bunch of girls doing ASMR, showing cleavage, and more basically unrelated to gaming all girls.

Here are the comments from the users, Oh so that’s why they don’t get permabanned. He’s a man for the people, That’s one horny old man and many more. Basically Twitch CEO was caught in 4K
