Call of Duty Modern Warfare Console


  • In a recent interview with Infinity Ward design director Joe Cecot
  • Call of Duty Modern Warfare will support mouse and keyboard on consoles!

  • it's also mentioned that you can't change peripheral mid match
  • to those who don't know Call of Duty Modern Warfare is a cross platform game means you can play with PC, Xbox nad Ps4 players

Dota 2 Matchmaking Changes / Scrub Update


  • Recently its revealed the valve is making changes on Dota 2’s match making
  • but oh boy the changes are massive as its currently the biggest matchmaking dota 2 update ever
  • In the official blog post they are addressing community complaints and then pushed some experimental changes
  • So what are these changes?
  • The first big changes is for the Solo and Party MMR
  • because this time they won't be calculated separately , so its now a joint MMR
  • according to valve this was changed because they want players to focus on team play
  • because right now Dota 2 players prefer to play solo
  • Also for the accuracy of MMR
  • they Valve decided to release a Core and Support MMR stats
  • so now you can decide which position you want to play in a match
  • on top of that the each MMR type will now have its own leaderboard
  • at least this time support players get the spotlight they deserve!
  • Next update is the Summoner Scrub
  • this update has 2 parts one for the code which now focuses on intra-team balance, player conduct, new player experience, abusive behaviors, account buying, friend and teamplay aspects
  • then bug fixes and other quality of life improvements
  • so basically this update tackles the aspects of matchmaking dynamics, and other issues
  • According to valve this is an effort to make the overall experience of playing Dota more fun for players of all levels
  • So far the community response are positive but what do you think?
