Warframe Resurrects The Beam Weapons Of Old – gamesread.com

Warframe Resurrects The Beam Weapons Of Old - gamesread.comIf you’re a Warframe veteran, you probably remember a time when Beam Weapons were king and were probably a little bit upset when the devs decided to change the whole system. Digital Extremes has just brought back the Beam Weapons of old with the latest update – Hotfix 22.13.3.

“Beam Weapon behavior was originally changed to help with performance but as we’ve made optimizations to the game over time, we can return them to their original status of hitscan weapons with pinpoint accuracy and zero recoil. Or at least we think we can.

Perfect accuracy and high fire rate is balanced by limited range and damage ramping up from 10% to 100% over 0.8 seconds when firing and decays back to 10% over 1 second after stopping. To help with ammo economy, Beam Weapons consume 0.5 ammo per trace – unless they are Flamethrowers.”

The studio says that the changes will immediately be noticeable and is keen on getting constructive feedback from the community to further improve the system. The hotfix also includes non-Beam Weapon changes including a now silent Cernos Prime alt fire, increased rate of fire for Zenith’s alt fire, and a ton of other tweaks and fixes.

You’ll find the full patch notes on the official forums. Don’t forget to check out the latest Warframe dev stream right after the break.

Destiny 2 Makes A Few Changes To Their Development Roadmap on gamesread

Destiny 2 Makes A Few Changes To Their Development Roadmap on gamesreadA few weeks ago, Bungie released a development roadmap for Destiny 2 which listed the features that they were working on and the dates that they were scheduled to be released. But, as we all know, developmental roadmaps aren’t necessarily set in stone which Game Director Christopher Barrett admits.

“A few weeks ago, we shared a Destiny 2 Development Roadmap to preview some changes we’re working on for Destiny 2. As we’ve mentioned before, the roadmap is our current best estimate, and we’ll do our best to update you as our plans unfold.”

Some of the features have been delayed for later updates such as Nightfall Strike Unique Rewards which was initially intended to go live with Update 1.1.3 on February 27th but has now been pushed back to Update 1.1.4 which is scheduled for release a month later on March 27th.

The devs will also be adding the Rumble Mode to the Crucible playlist when 1.1.4 goes live. Doubles will also be making a return sometime in the future. We’ll keep you abreast of any news that comes our way. In the meantime, you can check out the video below for a sneak peek at what the devs had in store for players during the game’s first-ever Crimson Days event last week.

Robocraft Royale Partners with GhostShark, Free Alpha Begins March 1st on gamesread

Robocraft Royale Partners with GhostShark, Free Alpha Begins March 1st on gamesread

Robocraft developer FreeJam announced today that they partnered with GhostShark Games to help develop Robocraft Royale, a battle royale game built on Robocraft’s engine and gameplay elements. GhostShark will be at first responsible for the optimization of the resources streaming and rendering systems. These systems are super important to ensure a stutter free experience, especially on a large map with 100 players.

A free alpha test is scheduled to begin on March 1st, 2018. While it’s obvious Robocraft Royale was inspired by the success of Fortnite and Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds, a build your own robot battle royale style game actually sounds pretty interesting. Though it looks like player designed robots will make it into the game to be found, everyone won’t get to make their own and load in with it. According to the game’s website Robocraft royale will feature:

  • A 64 square kilometer map with cities, industrial sites, and crashed spaceships
  • 100 players on a single map
  • Hundreds of robots and vehicles scattered across the map (player designed)
  • Precision damage system to knock out weapons, movement, and other specific systems based on where bullets land

There’s no official release date for Robocraft Royale just yet. Learn more about the game on their homepage.

FIFA 18 Goals of the Month December 2017 – EA SPORTS – Official Site on gamesread

Posted January 11th at 12:00am.

The EA SPORTS FIFA 18 Goals of the Month compilation highlights the best goals that were selected in that month’s Goals of the Week videos. While there were plenty of excellent strikes to choose from, a few stood out above the rest. 

 

December 2017 had goals that provided a fresh look at El Tornado, as well as a few mazy, dribbling runs that produced finishes almost as exciting and inventive. The selections below earned their place at the very top by being as fresh, creative, and impressive as possible. 

El Tornado Master: Marc-Andre Dachs, Cristiano Ronaldo

Since El Tornado was released along with FIFA 18, players have been utilizing the new skill move in some incredible and inventive ways. This month’s best submission featured the master of the move. Ronaldo uses El Tornado and a subsequent touch to open a huge chunk of space in front of himself, then strikes the ball with a scissor kick near the edge of the box for a finish even more extraordinary than the moves he used to create the chance. 

 

 

Skiller Award: Jonny Howson, Raheem Sterling

For the second month in a row, a player has used Manchester City winger Sterling to produce the most technically notable goal. Sterling makes use of a nice variety of the skill moves at his disposal, beating a total of five defenders on route to a solid close-range finish past the goalkeeper. 

 

 

Set Piece Specialist: Hardik Tara, Cristiano Ronaldo

The only free kick to be included in this month’s selections, Ronaldo simply produces a clean, swerving finish from the set piece a few yards outside the penalty box. While relatively simple compared to some goals on the list, this free kick gets the nod simply because such goals are not easily scored in FIFA 18. 

 

 

Like Riding A Bike: NathanArmy2003, Isco

After a solid delivery from teammate Gareth Bale, Isco produces a fine bicycle kick (always a crowd pleaser) at the tightest of angles that takes advantage of the goalkeeper’s poor positioning and drops the ball perfectly into the corner of the net. 

 

 

Epic Volley Award: Porcupine, Toni Kroos

Many of this month’s goals were selected based on the epic quality of the buildup or chance creation, not purely because of how they were finished. But this one-time volley from Toni Kroos was not only inch-perfect — it was from a distance few players can score from consistently. After solid if uninspired attacking from his teammates, the goalkeeper pushes the shot away only for it to deflect off a defender’s head and loop out of the box and right to Kroos with plenty of space in front of him. Without taking any extra touches, Kroos produces a left-footed volley that soars majestically over defenders right into the upper left corner of the net, far from the goalkeeper’s reach.

FUT Champions Weekend League Update – gamesread.com

Posted January 24th at 2:30pm.

Hey FUT Players,

Quick intro, my name is Tyler Blair and I’m a Senior Game Designer on FIFA Ultimate Team. I started at EA in 2004 and have worked on FUT since it was just a concept in 2008. As a Designer, I’m part of the team that shapes and decides the direction of FUT features through production, and partners with the rest of the development team to bring features and modes to life when the game launches.

 
Today I wanted to tell you about a change we are making to the Weekend League, starting in February, and also give you a bit more context on changes already made in the January FIFA 18 Title Update.   

Silver 2 Qualification from February

When we added qualification to the prizes at Gold 3 and above, we did so with the intent of making continued participation in the Weekend League easier. We looked at the effects of this change and found that it encouraged some players to play more games per weekend, which was not our intent.

 

To reach Gold 3, it takes 18 wins and data shows that a big group of players stop playing when they get there. It also shows that it takes most players approximately 31 games to achieve this rank. We understand the rewards are a big driver as to why people try to get as many wins as possible, but the disproportionate population of players who stop at this line signals an opportunity for improvement. So, with that in mind we’re making a change at the start of February.

FUT Champions rewards of Silver 2 and above will now grant access to the next Weekend League. The new number of wins required to gain the qualification reward will be 11 wins and above. By moving the benchmark to Silver 2, we will grow the overall size of the weekend league slightly and enable an earlier stop-point for players wanting to earn requalification. The stats show that a high percentage of players will find themselves qualified to the next Weekend League after 20-23 games and many much faster than that.

This change retains the structure we have in place to find the best FUT players in the world, while keeping competitive play available and accessible for all FUT players.

 
Review of Pre-Match Information

In this Title Update, we improved the pre-game experience and game setup flow.

  • In the team select screen we changed the way Home and Away are displayed – you will now see ‘My Squad’ and ‘Opponent Squad’. 

  • We also removed the option of playing in specific stadiums with varied camera angles or shadow patterns. To provide a consistent experience for everyone, all FUT Champions matches will take place in the FeWC Stadium, Time of Day will always be set to Night and Weather always be set to Clear.
  • We have changed the way that kit selection works. You will now control which kits you see for both your own team, and your opponent’s team. You will choose whether to assign your Home or Away kit to your team, while your opponent’s team will be assigned the other. In gameplay, each player will see only the kits they selected, and will not see the kits that their opponent selected. With this in mind, we suggest that you review your Active kits.

I hope that this gives you better insight into the changes we made. Thank you for playing and see you in the Weekend League!

Tyler Blair and the FUT Development Team

How DhTekKz Won the EA SPORTS FIFA 18 Global Series FUT Champions Cup – gamesread.com

Posted February 2nd at 6:00pm.

Donovan “DhTekKz” Hunt was a name that few people knew a week ago. The 16-year-old from Exeter was ranked 55th on the Xbox One leaderboards based on his November 2017 Weekend League results, meaning that he barely squeaked into the tournament at all. He had less than 1,000 Twitter followers when the weekend began. But by Sunday evening, DhTekKz would be a legend.

One by One, Tournament Favorites Fall Short

When the FUT Champions Cup Barcelona last weekend started the FIFA 18 Global Series Road to the FIFA eWorld Cup, many of the biggest names in FIFA competitive gaming were present. Players like last year’s FIFA 17 Ultimate Team Championship Series winner Corentin “Vitality Rocky” Chevrey and top Xbox One seed Michael “MegaBit” Bittner. But those heavyweights, along with many others, were left in the wake of possibly the greatest narrative in competitive FIFA history.

Many of the FIFA players in Barcelona had all the marks of a professional. Some (and their FUT squads) bore the jerseys of real-life club sponsors. Some changed their gamer tags to include the gaming organizations to which they were signed. Many brought coaches with them who barked orders in headsets and brought out notebooks at halftime to go over tactics.

An Exeter Underdog

DhTekKz wasn’t signed to a professional club, and he didn’t come to Barcelona with a coach in tow. His squad often bore the jerseys of his favorite team, Liverpool Football Club. He chose the crest of Exeter City Football Club, to represent his hometown on the global stage. His parents accompanied him and cheered him on throughout the tournament, but only in the later rounds did he have a coach, when professional Roma pro Sam “Roma Poacher” Carmody volunteered to help after his own exit from the tournament. In a room surrounded by professionals, DhTekKz’s amateur status kept him under the radar. 

The FUT Champions Cup group stage used a Swiss-style format, meaning all matches in the stage were between players with identical records. DhTekKz started slowly, losing two of his first three rounds in the group stage. But that round 3 loss would be his last. His journey through the group stage was highlighted with a 7-2 aggregate win over Vitality Rocky, who wouldn’t make it out of the stage. The teenage DhTekKz qualified for the knockout stage with a respectable 5-2 record, keeping company with tournament favorites—making commentators give him a second look.

Hints of Greatness

DhTekKz said after the group stage that he felt everything was going against him, considering the ridiculously difficult matchups he’d had thus far. “Beating Rocky, I was just happy. I don’t know what to say, I’m speechless.” Despite having a mountain to climb, he remained confident, saying, “I believe in myself, I think I can go on and win, but that’s just how it is. It’s good that I played those players, so I can prove myself.”

With so much talent, the competition was intense in both console brackets. No player had an “easy” run in this tournament, but the path DhTekKz took makes his surprise victory even more impressive. He was challenged quickly, facing the self-proclaimed “best FIFA player in the world” and tenth Xbox One seed kurt0411. DhTekKz dispatched kurt0411 with a 5-1 aggregate win, finally turning heads in Barcelona and around the world.

This made DhTekKz’s play style and tactical choices a hot topic for the tournament’s commentators. He used a lot of skill moves during matches, a choice that some saw as showboating—but others considered a fresh approach to the competitive game. The margins in competitive FUT are often thin, so skill moves (especially in dangerous areas of the pitch) are used sparingly when there is a lot at stake. But DhTekKz found a way to incorporate flashy skills into his game without sacrificing too much, and it was clearly paying off. 

 

Bucking the Tactical Trends

Tactically, DhTekKz played a bit of a different style in some matches, picking a 4-2-3-1 formation rather than the more popular formations, like the 4-1-2-1-2 narrow diamond and traditional 4-4-2. Using 4-2-3-1, DhTekKz said, provided a counter-attacking strategy that had served him well in qualification. “I’ve got two styles, I’ll either do possession or just counter-attack. Against Gorilla I decided to go counter-attack and it worked well. I tried to match Rocky at his own game. I feel like I can take anyone on in their own style.” This isn’t a single tactic that he employed, but rather a style of play that relied on understanding FIFA on a level that allows him to tweak his game to suit any opponent.

Bold tactical choices and a keen understanding of skill moves are just part of DhTekKz’s exceptional style of play. Tournament commentator Richard Buckley said “what makes [DhTekKz] special is that he is unpredictable in his gameplay, he does things that other pros don’t. This includes skill moves and long shots, which others just don’t expect him to do.” 

DhTekKz had a slightly tougher match in the console quarterfinals, but finished off another big name in Hashtag United pro Ryan “Hashtag Ryan” Pessoa with a tight 3-1 win. With two top-ranked players in his wake, DhTekKz was riding a wave of hype. But his opponent was VfL Bochum 1848 e-Sports pro and the highest-ranked Xbox One player in the world, Michael “MegaBit” Bittner. Would he be able to hang with Megabit, the only player that went undefeated in the November Weekend League? 

This matchup ended up being one of the tournament’s best, as DhTekKz and Megabit provided an end-to-end, 16-goal thriller over the two-game semifinal. The hype train for DhTekKz was going full speed, and it seemed like the entire competitive FIFA world was buying tickets. Buckley referred to this match as DhTekKz’s most impressive performance of the entire tournament. 

Glory Is Within His Reach

Two more opponents and four games stood between DhTekKz and competitive FIFA history. His console final opponent, Germany’s Niklas “NRaseck7” Raseck, might have only been the 35th-ranked player, but he wasn’t a pushover. DhTekKz came out swinging and easily finished the first leg with a 4-1 advantage that included a second-half penalty kick. But it was NRaseck7 who jumped to an early second leg lead, bringing the aggregate score up to 4-2 in the opening minutes. The German turned the screws again, scoring a fantastic goal in the 31st minute with Cristiano Ronaldo to inch closer to DhTekKz’s lead. DhTekKz looked rattled, but, he kept his nerve, getting an insurance goal near the end of the game and preserveing his and a place in the Grand Final.

Despite his age, this was a recurring theme in this competition for DhTekKz—keeping his nerve. Surrounded by players with far more experience at the competitive level than him, DhTekKz never looked like he’d fold under pressure. Buckley said that he noticed it multiple times over the course of the tournament. “The most impressive part of the victory was that, given his age, he didn’t let the pressure of the tournament affect his gameplay or the way that he kept his composure throughout the three days.”

The Final Showdown

While not as unknown as DhTekKz, PlayStation 4 bracket champion Nicolas “nicolas99fc” Villalba quietly racked up an impressive tournament after ranking sixth in the world to qualify. Starting with a tight win over August “Hashtag Agge” Rosenmeier in the round of 32 and ending with a decisive win in the console finals over FC Basel pro Tim “TheStrxngeR” Katnawatos, nicolas99fc put together a solid resume ahead of the event Grand Final.

But there could be only one champion. While nicolas99fc certainly had his fans—especially from his home country of Argentina—the real buzz surrounding the Grand Final concerned DhTekKz. Fans around the world flocked to the live stream, eager to see if the Exeter teenager would complete his underdog story.  

The entertainment began almost immediately. DhTekKz started with a bang, scoring his first goal after a few seconds. Even though nicolas99fc put up a valiant effort, his young opponent was simply too much. The first leg ended with a tight 3-2 scoreline, but DhTekKz ran away with the title and secured a 9-3 aggregate score in the event Grand Final to lift his first major trophy.

Within a matter of days, DhTekKz went from being a mostly-anonymous, low-ranked player that squeaked into the first FUT Champions Cup event of the season to one of the biggest names in competitive gaming. His Twitter account grew exponentially, ending the weekend with over 50,000 followers. 

Seconds after his victory, DhTekKz showed a maturity and humility beyond his years when talking about his history-making weekend. “I don’t know what to say. I came into the tournament to do well. I got hard matchups, came through it, and believed I could win.” Even going down 3-2 at the end of the first game of the Grand Final, DhTekKz said his confidence didn’t waver. “I had a couple big leads in the earlier rounds. When he got it back to 3-2, I knew this had happened before, and I had gone on and won. I was worried, but I believed in myself to come out on top.”

If his calm, yet confident approach to FIFA showed the young man’s mature side, DhTekKz’s emotional words after the tournament reminded us that he’s just 16. His advice for aspiring professional FIFA players was unexpected: “Tell your mum about FIFA, she’ll be your inspiration. [Mine has] helped me a lot along the way.” When asked about what he would do with the prize money, DhTekKz‘s answer was one only someone with their entire adult life ahead of them could give: “I’m more worried about the trophy,” he said. “I don’t know where to put it.”

EA SPORTS FIFA 18 Goals of the Month — January 2018 – gamesread.com

Posted February 5th at 3:30pm.

The EA SPORTS FIFA 18 Goals of the Month compilation highlights the best goals selected from that month’s Goals of the Week videos. While there were plenty of excellent strikes to choose from, a few stood out above the rest. 

El Tornado Master: Parch98, Antoine Griezmann

El Tornado is the definition of “easy to learn, hard to master” in regard to skill moves. The actual game mechanics behind the move are relatively simple. But first, you have to have a player capable of doing the move in-game. French winger/forward Griezmann is one of those players, and he executed El Tornado perfectly in scoring this goal by fooling two defenders and opening a ton of space for himself. On top of that, he takes a first-time volley to fire the ball over the rest of the defense and in the corner of the net, beyond the reach of the goalkeeper. 

 

Skiller Award: Dautze9, Paul Pogba

There are so many ways to implement skills into your FIFA 18 game that it’s hard to objectively say what type of skill is better or more impressive. This month’s top skillful goal is based on Pogba’s remarkable close control of the ball. He uses four different skill moves to beat four different defenders, most of them inside the box. The most impressive of those moves is the very first one Pogba uses as the ball is passed to him; he deploys excellent control with his first touch to roll the ball away from the incoming slide tackle. After deceiving every last defender, Pogba smashes the ball past the helpless goalkeeper once opening up a huge pocket of space right in front of goal. 

 

Set Piece Specialist: RCastelo, Dani Alves

Rarely does a free kick goal get scored in FIFA 18 that is truly breathtaking in its execution. We mostly see short-range curlers over the wall that take a lucky deflection or trick the goalkeeper into moving the wrong way. So any long-range free kick is impressive, but this one scored by Alves is sensational. Taking a page out of another famous fullback’s notebook, Alves pulled off an amazing version of Roberto Carlos’ “banana” kick with the outside of his boot. As Alves strikes the ball, it curls wide of the wall and appears to soar out of bounds. But as it approaches the goal line, it spins itself back towards goal and squeaks into the top corner as the goalkeeper makes a futile dive for it. 

 

Cheekiest Finisher: Donato Moramarco, Leonardo Bonucci

You won’t see tons of goals from center backs on these lists, because they’re usually towering headers from set pieces or scrappy goalmouth scrambles that aren’t particularly interesting or unique. But Bonucci makes it for his absolutely audacious finish that is even more impressive considering his position. The buildup is simple: it’s a corner kick. The taker aims it short, just outside the the six-yard box. Bonucci drifts away from his marker towards the flight of the ball, moving away from goal. It appears that he’s mis-timed his run, but as the delivery comes in he kicks his foot out and behind, punching the ball into the net with the bottom of his boot. It doesn’t get much cheekier than that. 

 

Epic Volley Award: RPWPA, Kevin De Bruyne

Everything about this goal is pretty much perfect. The initial ball forward is headed expertly by Alexis Sanchez to De Bruyne, who volleys in a rocket from about 35 yards out. The ball thunders into the bottom of the crossbar and, at first, looks like it might not have crossed the line. But upon closer inspection, the ball crossed the line completely to finish off a terrific effort from every player involved.

Posted February 6th at 3:30pm.

128 competitive FIFA 18 players came into this tournament after qualifying through their Weekend League standings in November 2017. Eight players from each console would earn progression to the Global Series Playoffs, but only one champion would reign supreme. Despite the presence of many of the best competitive FIFA players in the world, the trophy would go to 16-year-old newcomer Donovan “DhTekKz” Hunt. After barely qualifying for the tournament as the 55th-ranked Xbox One player, the young man from Exeter was truly an underdog in Barcelona. But once he shook off two early group stage losses, DhTekKz turned things around and dominated most of his matches en route to securing the trophy with a whopping 9-3 aggregate score in the event’s final round.
