  1. I think you are mistaken, you can see two characters throwing the smoke (one has green one white), so I would imagine that’s like a perk if not standard equipment. Well it’s Riot games, that’s the market they aim to so why should it feel different. A bit surprised by the terminology used, but they are clearly targeting the hardcore crowd at this moment, just like Lawbreakers did, just in a different way.

    Of course it makes it easier, but the first part is still very hard, to the point that YouTubers that show this kind of things still can’t do it at the first attempt. By the way, it’s not just about the jump, the platform gives a new angle for Ts that boost. It gives something to hide under to CTs that push mid, so creates new corners for players to check. Not sure if is good or bad, playtime will tell. But is better to try new things and then change, then keep everything as it was. I think the Cache update is super-iterative, something that should/could have been done a few years back and something that I would see all maps go through. Small changes to balance the game, accommodate new meta that players develop… then after a couple of substantial minor updates (like this), remake/remaster the map radically, allowing for substantial changes in layout.
  3. In theory this was a one-off movie, outside the current DCEU. Apparently Phoenix accepted the role because he doesn’t want to be tied with multi-film contracts. That’s why the movie is “DC Black Label”. But after all the money coming in they might reconsider.

    More importantly, @monolith you are talking about polar opposites: the examples you make is removing something, while the Cache change adds allowing more people to do it.
  5. I'd say they have an edge, they were out from the beginning to also serve businesses with architecture and production, this is crazy but I mean Unity stuff is incredible as well. Just saw in the last couple days a post about real-time rendering for production, 10 min to render 4K stuff... I've updated that topic too

  7. I’ll come across as entitled and judgmental, but I’m never touching a game from Riot. We’ve been talking about Blizzard recently but they are even worse. Apart from releasing an uncalled statement the other day, just to clarify they’d do the same as Blizzard pretty much, they have an history of abuse towards their own employees. https://www.ccn.com/riot-games-scandal-exposes-league-of-legends-creators-true-colors/ https://kotaku.com/inside-the-culture-of-sexism-at-riot-games-1828165483/amp
  8. Didn't get the chance to reply to this. I'm no insider for any other industry, at most I know a little bit of the influencers and "creators" (youtubers) rings... and it seems to me they spur their drama too. It can't be as much, as I've never heard of Instagrammers ("IGers") called in front of the senate. I never reflected on this before your post, but if I had to speculate, I'd say this drama in the game industry (or social media) must have to do with the age group. ~ Regarding the Blizzard story, one of those youtubers people like to hate very appropriately pointed out that (unfortunately) no boicot will be a big enough loss to be comparable to the China money... suggesting nothing's really gonna change. They reduced the ban and returned the money to Blitzchung but at the same time they have been issuing 1,000 years suspensions to people in forums. ONE THOUSAND YEARS BANS. They also suspiciously removed the largest Rei statue from their shop (captured on stream). I'm so baffled by their PR moves just before their Blizzcon, I wonder what they are going to do for that, because people are organising protests, collecting funds to walk in with tshirts saying "free HK", Winnie the Poo and Rei costumes.

    This is why we can’t have nice things.
  11. Just getting into bed… I pulled an all-nighter to play this. Damn this is good
