We need as many people to install and play on the PTR as possible, to load test the change of moving character saves to regional instead of global. So if you have the game please install the PTR and play some over the next few days. If we get enough people to load test with us, it'll mean a smoother experience live.

Yea I watched that video when it came out, one of Smarter Every Day's best. It freaking blew my mind, the design of the thing, the testing, just how incredibly complex it is. Every day I cross my fingers that it's launch and the 6 month journey to its destination & the incredibly complex unfolding process go well. It's going to give us our first glimpses of exoplanets if it's successful, and I cannot wait.

I'm gonna wait on the game because ACG says it's worth a buy but it would be substantially better if it had co-op, so I'll wait for co-op to launch, hopefully with a sale.

Why are people pre-purchasing The Witch Queen? The last Destiny 2 expansion was a complete dumpster fire, why do these people think this one will be any different?

Hey DICE, will you just stop trying to make the next big CoD ripoff, battle royal or hero shooter and just make a god damn Battlefield game?! That's what we all want, a god damn Battlefield game! We buy your games because we love battlefield, the huge and intricate maps, the destructible 'battlefield', the amazing team play and variety of ways to approach the gameplay.

If we wanted another Call of Duty, Fortnite or Overwatch, we'd fucking play those games!


/rant over. Sorry I've been watching to much 'F is for Family' lately.

You realize the Dune movie is as close to the source material (the book) as the director could get.

Patches have gone a long way to improve the game (on PC), letting the games really good story, incredibly lifelike NPCs and their great side-arcs shine through.

What galls me the most about this was the report in the WSJ that Kotick hid information from the board about manager who was getting his female employees drunk (on the job) and then raping them. He not only hid this from the board, but had the women paid off out of court.. The board works for the shareholders who cannot be happy with this situation. And yet they released a statement giving Kotick their full support as CEO yesterday. It boggles my mind.

I just knew it was a smart move to not touch this with 10 ft. pole. Considering how quickly this went from announced to released, it was obviously a nostalgia cash grab. Money well saved.

Ogre Kingdoms race pack, I guess that one was obvious since they released Ogre Mercenaries. Still, would have preferred to see Chaos Dwarves, but I'm sure we'll get them at some point.

I really should play Warhammer II, oh and maybe Warhammer I as well since I own them both already.

You haven't played them? What a shame. If you weren't already aware, if you own both you can get a free DLC called Mortal Empires. You just need to install both once to get the mod (there-after you only need WH2 installed) and you'll unlock a game mode that includes the combined maps of both with all the races & factions of both in one mode. Mind, it isn't as 'story oriented' as WH1's Grand Campaign or WH2's Vortex Campaign, but it's still the most popular of the three simply because it's all about taking out your nearby enemies and controlling a large swath of land.. if not controlling the entire world itself.

New content is cool, but can they release this game already? I don't do early access, but man I want to play this game so bad.

Glad I didn't bite on this one. I heard it was really grindy and I hate that, but lately the news coming from it are troubling to say the least. In game chat is open HTML? Which idiot decided that? I've heard people crashing peoples computers through in-chat links. If someone really nefarious got interested they could do far worse than that.

Yea good question. I didn't really follow the beta (I don't generally pick Battlefield games up until a sale), but even I heard it went really poorly.

Overwatch 2 is looking so tight. One of the games (and the pro leagues) bigger problems is that with so many characters it's hard for new players to get into the game, and without knowing what each character does, it's hard to keep track of what's happening in the pro matches. The skill ceiling in Overwatch is extremely high, so at the league level it's played so fast that even if you know the game well it can be hard to track.

Watching the pro's play these new OWL 2 5v5 matches, a lot of issues are improved upon. Particle effects are scaled back a lot, and with one less player the match is much, much easier to follow. The new maps have more open space, even inside buildings, making it easier to follow the action as it takes place. These streams show that the traditionally 'off-tank' characters compete just fine as the sole tank, just as well as the traditionally 'main tank' characters, and there's much more opportunity for these amazing players to 'make plays' without having that extra player to constantly worry about. Not to mention the substantial reduction in CC and shield protection, the game seems less defense focused and more offense focused, which is a good thing. There's a reason the Asian teams are more fun to watch, they are much more aggressive. While western teams are much more defense focused, playing slow to build ults, using as many characters who have damage mitigation as possible.

I know PvP isn't a major focus of OWL 2, but right now the format is looking better than ever. I can't wait to see some of these new heroes as we near release early next year and OWL Season 5 is gonna rock. The league saw a major upsurge in viewership (in some areas of the world, over 90% increase). These changes and improvements are sure to lead to even more fans watching next season.

I don't think anyone expected Atlanta Reign to go as far as they have in this years play-offs & finals. They are a strong team, with the Rookie of the Year (on ping, as a recent injury meant he couldn't fly out to Hawaii). But that disadvantage didn't stop them from making Finals, which is amazing. No spoilers but last night I got to bed earlier than expected.

These reveals and the show match from last nights Season 4 Finale went over very well it seems, people were hype on reddit, Bastion looks great and his new abilities are sick. Apparently Bastion's new ult does a lot of damage, but can be blocked, and even deflected by Genji, which should lead to some awesome highlights. Sombra looks fantastic with her less powerful CC (to most peoples delight), she's a skirmisher now as she always should have been, and her ult reducing health across the board by 40% and disabling cooldowns for 1s is sick. The show match was brawly as hell, but the pro's put on a good game, trying out all kinds of heroes. As expected, it wasn't just a single main tank running the show in 5v5. In fact both started on Rein but fairly quickly switched off to play zarya and d.va for their broader kits. So the panic that off-tank players would be out of a job isn't a reality. They'll still need those players, and I'm sure it'll become apparent which maps they work best on vs maps that are still good for certain other tanks (Rein on King's Row for example).

All in all, it looked great. I can't wait to see more rework videos, and for Season 5 of OWL that will have switched over to OW2.
