SKT1 Wins the 2015 League of Legends world championship

This year we had a wild Worlds with so many ups and downs from the start and a wicked pools round. One team showed nothing but utter domination over their opponents so it comes to no surprise that the team who was the most consistently good this Worlds would take it all home and that team’s name is SKT1. SK Telecom T1 brutalized their opponents. They may have let some individual games get a little out of hand, but the difference when talking about SKT1 is how a game could look grim, but they come back and make it look routine. SKT1 being one of the only teams that uses a sub rotation, it works so well because Easyhoon is an exceptional player in his own right, adding some wins under his belt during this Worlds as well.

SKT1 in the quarters went up against AHQ. This was a very fast series with Bang outplaying An, and Albis showing up as the no questions asked best ADC of Worlds. Moving onto the semi-finals SKT1 was set to face off against underdog, and dark-horse Origen. This is where we got to see the difference in class with Marin and Bengi simply out classing SOAZ and Amazing in the series. SKT1 at this point had not dropped a game and this series was no different with 3-0 against Origen.

The finals was an all Korean battle where SKT1 would face off against KOO Tigers. This was probably the most SKT1 would be pushed this entire tournament, but that’s not saying much considering that the score of the series was 3-1. There’s a saying that goes “Play like you have been there” This is something, however, that Koo could not implement into their game. Even when they had a lead they just did not know how to push that advantage on a team of SKT1’s caliber, later letting the game slip from them. KOO’s only win came when they found themselves ahead on super snowball champions like Hojins Lee sin, Kuros kassadin, and Prays Ashe.

This victory would go on to be very short-lived for Koo unfortunately, but to KOO’s credit they were the first, and only team to hand SKT1 a loss the entire tournament, a feat many thought was near impossible. Many people would go towards picking easy choices for MVP of the series such as Bang or Faker, but I think Marin played lights out against Smeb, making it look like Marin was playing by himself in the top lane. Even in the loss Marin had decent states on his Rumble, but Marin was a huge rock and Hojin could not break the top lane, which opened things up for Bang on the other side of the map. It’s pointless to discuss because you can make the argument for any one the players to take MVP they were just so peerless on the Worlds stage taking home their second Summoners Cup. One can hope they’ll stay together and go on to repeat a feat that has not been accomplished in League of Legends history.

I have been following Esports from late doom and early counterstrike. I follow League, Hearthstone, CSGO, Smite, and most games in the FGC.

Metallica takes center stage on the battle arena of the Fortnite Festival, showcasing their musical prowess in an epic PVP showdown

Metallica will be headlining the Battle Stage at the Fortnite Festival, and fans can look forward to an epic performance later today, on the 13th of June. The entire lineup of the legendary heavy metal band has been transformed into digital avatars for the ever-growing gaming platform. Fans can now enjoy their greatest hits and even engage in a thrilling musical player-versus-player game mode.

The collaboration between Metallica and Fortnite marks the start of Fortnite Festival Season 4, featuring an exciting lineup of six Metallica songs, such as “Enter Sandman,”  “Fuel,”  and “Ride the Lightning.”. Additional songs will be introduced as the season progresses. By choosing Epic’s premium Festival Pass, you’ll have the opportunity to unlock all four Metallica band members as playable skins. How about a showdown between Lars Ulrich and Goku?

The aspect that captures our attention is the 16-player musical battle royale. The Battle Stage offers a challenging experience that pushes players to their limits, requiring both physical stamina and a captivating stage presence. Players will find themselves immersed in the intense energy of the four tracks playing simultaneously. Perform with skill, and you can unleash powerful bursts of musical energy, causing less talented individuals to falter and be defeated, with the ultimate victor being crowned the Master of Puppets (most likely).

In addition to that, Metallica will be making an appearance at the Rocket Racing tent, complete with a specially designed track, car, and LEGO replicas of the band members. Is there anything more intense than that?

Do you enjoy Metallica’s music? Could anyone have predicted that the band would rise to prominence in a video game primarily aimed at a younger audience who may not be familiar with their music? And now, let’s turn our attention to the comments section below.

Star Wars Outlaws PS5 Demo Falls Short of Delivering the Full Experience, According to Critic

Star Wars Outlaws, although it appeared visually stunning during Ubisoft’s livestream earlier this week, has received some criticism for feeling somewhat outdated. A preview unfavorably compared the release to Uncharted: Golden Abyss, the PS Vita exclusive spin-off that was launched in 2011. However, according to the creative director, the sampler is merely a small taste of what the full experience has to offer.

“When entering a show of this nature, where you’re finalizing a game’s production, you’re faced with numerous decisions. Our producer limited us to just one demo for all the shows we would attend throughout the year, such as Gamescom and Comic-Con,” Julian Gerighty explained in an interview with VGC.

He explained that the events are designed to cater to both consumers and journalists. To ensure an engaging experience, they opted for a 20-minute format that offers a diverse range of content and showcases different game systems. However, they intentionally avoided showcasing the open-world experience at this particular event, as they plan to unveil it during the studio tour and preview event. This will be a brief overview, more of an appetizer than a full meal when it comes to the game.

According to Gerighty, the developer Massive Entertainment has crafted a highly engaging game, with only a portion of its greatness showcased here.

Admittedly, the comments do make sense. It’s common knowledge that creating demos requires a significant amount of the team’s focus. If a game plans to showcase itself at consumer conventions, it can’t just offer a short gameplay experience of two or three hours. That simply won’t suffice when attendees are patiently waiting in line. This seems to be just a subpar demo, which is unfortunate. However, it may not be something to worry too much about in the end.

Ubisoft has given us our first look at The Sky Breaker, the first DLC story pack for Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora. In it, a strange shadow will appear in the sky and threaten the Na’vi clans, who just can’t seem to get a break. It comes out next month on PS5, on July 16th.

A new part of the Upper Plains called “The Heart of the Plains” can be reached by taking the Sky Breaker. Some well-known biomes have changed into new types, and there are also many new ones. Of course, the RDA has also sent out new types of enemies, so you need to be careful. The good news is that not everything is bad. During the Na’vi Festival of Games, players can look forward to timed tasks that are a little less scary. Secrets of the Spires, another story pack, is still planned to be added to the game at some point.
