With the last few playoff games for the spring split closing out in the coming weeks, the League of Legends season has almost reached its midpoint. Traditionally a time when competitive play takes a break and sweeping design changes can be made that radically shift approaches to the game, Riot has announced the first…
Valve released notes on Dota 2's latest upcoming patch, 7.00, earlier today. The site originally crashed when the notes were first supposed to go live, but is now back up and running with full details on a list of extensive changes that will be coming to Valve’s free-to-play MOBA.
Fallout 4’s latest update is en route, promising to bring a few changes and fix a bunch of bugs, several of which are related to dismemberment. Gotta get that dismemberment working right!
The new and (hopefully improved) Poppy is finally live in League of Legends. Now let the click-racing of champion select commence!
Riot’s putting out its first update for League of Legends after the massive game-changing 5.22 patch, and it looks like 5.23 will dial back a lot of the super-powerful new marksman champions. They’re also starting to resize a buttload of champions so they look more like they’re supposed to in the game’s lore. Finally!
Riot started to release its massive laundry list of changes for League of Legends this week, and while players expected things to feel very different, they’ve been surprised by one thing in particular: minions. Those cutesy automated creep spawns pack a serious punch now.
Final Fantasy XIV update 3.1 is live, bringing more story, dungeons, missions, hairstyles and a minion-powered strategy mini-game to the second (and gaining) most successful subscription-based MMORPG. Check out the full update notes here. See you in Eorzea!
A primary theme in Riot’s gigantic laundry list of upcoming changes for League of Legends is that the developer is trying really, really hard to make its game more social. While many of the new socially-minded features announced this week sound wonderful, not all League fans are happy about their impending future.
Riot’s been teasing out a ton of changes it’s making to its ludicrously popular multiplayer game League of Legends this week. The biggest by far impact powerful ranged offensive units, known alternatively as “ADC” or “marksman” characters. Sounds like the bottom lane of League’s map is about to become very...different.
Teemo, nicknamed “Satan,” is such a famously infuriating champion to go against in League of Legends that many players (myself included) recoiled in terror upon hearing that he was getting buffed late this summer. But apparently his changes weren’t enough, because today Riot came back with even more.
Well this is bound to be interesting.
Heroes of the Storm put out its new patch notes today, and boy is this a big one. In addition to adding the new StarCraft Medic support hero Lt. Morales and completely reworking a number of struggling warriors, they’re finally making some changes to the game’s maps. Most importantly: the ungodly “Infernal Shrines.” …
The desert soldier Azir has been a powerful presence for much of League of Legends’ current season, with the mage being picked or banned in practically every major tournament game. Now little more than a month away from the World Championship, Riot is finally knocking the guy down a peg.
League of Legends patches are normally relatively minor incremental things at this point—tweaking an item or two, rebalancing a handful of characters, maybe dropping a few new skins in. Not this week. Riot’s 5.16 patch notes make it sound like a patch on steroids.
Heroes of the Storm just went through a whole lot of changes today with its latest patch. Ranked mode has been reset, meaning you now have to play 20 ranked games to receive a new starting rank. Plus a bunch of nerfs, a UI update, oh, and the monk arrived too! Read the full patch notes here.
Thank the benevolent Heroes of the Storm balance team gods. The iconic Warcraft villain Kael’Thas’s reign of terror in Blizzard’s new MOBA is finally coming to an end.
Today Riot revealed a buttload of changes it’s making to defensive items in League of Legends, starting with the upcoming 5.16 patch. That’s far enough off that we can’t say for sure how the tweaks will affect the game, but it looks like a lot of core pieces of armor are getting nerfed. So long tank meta?
Despite being a very fun game, there are many, many things in League of Legends that desperately need to be fixed, improved upon, or added in the first place. A key figure at League’s development studio Riot wants the game’s tens of millions of fans to know that delays for crucial improvements aren’t the result of…
Heroes of the Storm is a Smash Bros.-style mascot brawler for Blizzard’s iconic PC games, meaning the rockstar PC developer borrowed tons of ideas from its other games when crafting HOTS characters. The latest patch for Diablo III shows that creative inspiration works in the opposite direction too.
