Heroes of the Storm: Tips

Over the last few days, I’ve been grinding the ladder of Heroes of the Storm and there are some things you should know before even thinking about playing Hero League or making a team to go for Team League. If you guys are new to MOBA’s this article will help you quite a bit but if you have some experience with DOTA, LoL or any other kind of this game style, there are some basic stuff you’ll need to learn about Blizzard’s new MOBA or as they call it “Hero Brawler”.

I’ve seen a lot of people doing their quests in Hero League just because they don’t want to waste their time in a Quick Match, let me tell you something, if you are not comfortable with the hero in question you are not going to have a good time getting your ass kicked and having to accept some foul language from some not-so-calm players. So my thoughts on this particular case is to just go for a Quick Match if you want to get rid of your quests and get some money, because in the end you are only gonna get a lot of people angry and make them report which later on it will get your account banned.

ZeratulLately a lot of people were giving commets like “don’t pick Zeratul, he is useless” or Nova, Raynor etc. With this kind of mentality you should probably go and play something else because you are not able to understand the basic idea of a MOBA. Every hero is a good hero, it only depends on the situation and if a player is choosing a hero like Raynor he has something prepared for that particular match-up as long as you are in a Hero League match.

People are going recently for combo heroes like Abathur with Illidan or Kerrigan with Arthas and so on, well don’t! Only if you are on skype with your friend and know 100% that you are going to do some damage to the enemy team otherwise don’t pick dual-combo heroes just because you saw some pro players using it, there is a reason why those guys are professional gamers and you’re not.

In Hero League the more you gain points and rank up, the higher chances you have to be placed in a team with some high skilled players. For Hero League, it’s better to have a pre-made team to coordinate each other to complete the tasks on each map, but keep in mind that if you have a full party, the matchmaking system will put you up against another full party and it will become harder to play.

You will need a decent team with decent team mates, otherwise you will surely have the worst time ever. Playing against Team Liquid, probably the best team in the world right now, wasn’t the match we were looking for. Not only we didn’t have enough practice time but also we are not as skilled as pro players. With that in mind if you have a team just play Hero League to gain experience. PS. Don’t judge our picks, after we saw that we are going to play against Team Liquid we just said: “Pick your best heroes, and do your best”

These are my opinions about Heroes of the Storm right now. Stay tuned for more, because Heroes of the Storm is still in Beta and even I am looking forward for posible changes until the oficial release date.

Who doesn’t enjoy listening to a good story. Personally I love reading about the people who inspire me and what it took for them to achieve their success. As I am a bit of a self confessed tech geek I think there is no better way to discover these stories than by reading every day some articles or the newspaper . My bookcases are filled with good tech biographies, they remind me that anyone can be a success. So even if you come from an underprivileged part of society or you aren’t the smartest person in the room we all have a chance to reach the top. The same message shines in my beliefs. All it takes to succeed is a good idea, a little risk and a lot of hard work and any geek can become a success. VENI VIDI VICI .

Ten million people play The First Descendant in its first week

The free-to-play shooter The First Descendant has gotten a lot of attention in its first week. The game’s publisher, Nexon, says that 10 million people have already tried it out.

Insider Gaming pointed out that since there is no cost up front, it’s still too early to tell how many of those players will stick around, but it’s still a big number for a new IP. On Steam alone, it peaked at 264,860 concurrents right after launch and has still managed to break 200,000 in the last 24 hours, so it looks like a lot of people are still really into the game.

It was a “mindless and repetitive grind,” and we gave The First Descendant a 3/10 in our review. Of course, that’s just one opinion; other experts have had different ones. Most people, though, say that the game’s annoying free-to-play model is the worst thing about it.

Are you one of the millions of people who played The First Descendant last week? Are you going to come back for more? Leave a comment below and let us know.

Raiden, the famous shmup series, will come back as a twin-stick shooter on PS5, PS4, and PC

Raiden has a long and interesting history as a vertical shooter in arcades. However, the series is going to get a Super Stardust HD makeover, which means it will switch to a twin-stick format. It comes out in Japan on October 31. There’s no word yet on when it will come out in the West, but we wouldn’t be surprised if it did.

A Gematsu translation of the game’s website says that the full version will have an arcade mode with up to six stages. There will also be an “Unlimited” option for people who want to be at the top of the rankings. It sounds like a pretty straightforward package in terms of what’s inside, but we think the action will be what makes it worth it.

There’s a trailer up top that should help you figure out what to expect. There are, however, different versions of Raiden 3, Raiden 4, and Raiden 5 that you can play right now on the PS5 and PS4, if you can’t wait for this game to come out in the West.

Nike, the maker of high-quality shoes, is working with Bandai Namco, the company that makes the Tekken series, to make a pair of sneakers. The fun competition is part of the franchise’s 30th anniversary celebrations. You can get your own pair for $250 or the equivalent in your country, though they’ll probably be worth a lot more on the sneakerhead black market.

Two pairs of Tekken 8 x Nike Air Foamposite One Fist sneakers are set to come out in September 2024, according to shoe fan Sole Retriever (thanks, VGC). The designs are based on Kazuya and Jin, two main characters in the series. You can get them at Nike and some other stores. People who like hypebeasts and fighting games are likely to buy these quickly, so if you like Tekken and shoes that make people talk, you should probably act fast.

Should Bandai Namco and Nike work together? What do you think? Are you going to fight for your own pair? Make sure to take good care of your shoes and keep their value in the comments section below.
