  5. Funcom has sent out a mysterious note leading to a cryptic page with a countdown leading to February 28th. The message reads that the company will be announcing a new game on that day.

  8. Hi-Rez Studios this week announced that the controversial, albeit apparently successful, Cards Unbound updated will be removed from Paladins over the next major release cycle. Cards Unbound is a controversial update that changed the way that cards (which can affect power) are collected. The update was criticized by long-term players who saw the update as a method of shoehoring players into the game’s cash shop by pushing the card leveling system to random loot boxes. “Our team will be working over the next major release cycle to remove Cards Unbound from the game. We will be replacing it with a new system that I believe the community will be really excited about — including the re-introduction of the deck building point system, and a method for obtaining cards that will be way less grindy.” Some points on how the new system will work are as follows. This list subject to change. Legendary Cards will now be called Talents. Talents will only have a single level. Talents will be unlocked for free by earning XP and gaining Champion levels (for example; level 1,5,10,15). All Champion Cards will now be free (No cost or grind). Deck creation will return to a point system where players can distribute 15 points across the five cards they select for their loadout. Each Champion Card will have five ranks to choose from. Talents will not have ranks, and are not included in the loadout point cap. Talents and Decks will continue to be chosen at match start to allow players to tailor their playstyles based on their opponents. New Talents will be added over time and give further varied playstyles. Champion Mastery will no longer be capped at level 25. Instead, it will work similarly to Player Account leveling (which has no cap). Card chests will be removed from the game. We are evaluating the best options to compensate players for their previously earned cards, and hope to share details soon. More information can be found at the link below.

  9. Paladins Executive Producer Chris Larson has penned an extensive 'state of the game' letter for Paladins that addresses several key issues for the game and in the community.

  11. The world of mechanical keyboards goes far deeper than Razer and Corsair. Under the surface, there's a bustling community and keyboards to suit every PC user. We at MMORPG believe that a quality keyboard is about more than fancy lighting or a billion dollar brand names. Today, we're looking at one of our favorite customs yet, the WhiteFox Keyboard by Input Club. It's small but powerful and you won't want to miss it. View the full article
  12. Time flies when you’re grinding for that 99 skillcape, and nobody knows that more than the players of Old School RuneScape which this month reaches its five year anniversary. It’s hard to believe that five years ago we were talking about Old School RuneScape (which MMO Fallout for some reason consistently referred to as ‘OldScape’) as this small project that we had no idea if it would be popular enough to be sustainable, with the high end of the hopes being that Jagex could commit just enough personnel to make very small content updates and ban some bots. But just as luck would have it, the game exploded in popularity over the next year and drew in enough people that it receives regular content updates and rather massive, exclusive additions. In 2015, MMO Fallout managed to snag an interview with Matthew Kemp, product manager for Old School RuneScape not long after Deadman Mode, the game’s hardcore spinoff, originally launched. Deadman mode, where players can kill each other virtually anywhere and can lose large amounts of their belongings on death, in turn spawned its own massively successful eSports spinoff in the form of seasonal Deadman tournaments, with winners taking home $10 grand in cold hard cash. Senior Product Manager Matthew Kemp (the very same) had the following to say on Old School RuneScape’s coming year: “2018 is a huge year for Old School, and not only because of these anniversary celebrations and the launch of the game’s own dedicated Twitch channel. We are currently in the middle of a pipeline of closed beta tests for Old School RuneScape on mobile, and already are getting some excellent feedback from those lucky enough to receive an invitation. In fact, the feedback so far has more than validated our decision to make the full game available on mobile platforms for new, returning and current players later in the year.” Both Old School RuneScape and RuneScape 3 are in the process of being ported to mobile devices.

  13. A 12-year-old Fortnite YouTube streamer has been the victim of a recent "swatting" event after his channel followers spiked in a very short period of time. According to PCGameN, the boy, "Varady", was playing a match with Cizzorz, another YTer with over 800k subscribers. Cizzorz sent his fans to Varady's channel which raised the latter's numbers from about 400 followers to over 85k. Apparently this didn't sit well with some folks who called local police to initiate a "swatting". View the full article
  14. In a new blog post on the Destiny 2 / Bungie blog, Game Director Christopher Barrett lets players know that the development roadmap has been adjusted to push several features back. This includes adjustments to the Nightfall Strike perks and the equipment mod overhaul. Both were slated to arrive in game by May 2018, but Barrett feels the team wants to ensure each feature meets "a sufficiently high quality bar" and that artists are given the "extra time to make things super...cool".

  19. Newzoo has published an interesting look at global eSports in the coming year and in the next several years to come.

  20. The EVE Online site has another extensive blog post detailing some big changes coming to the game in the March update. Most notably, players will see a small, but meaningful, change to the jump fatigue mechanic. The mechanic, according to the blog, has been one of the "least satisfying" ones since its introduction in 2014. As a result of volumes of player feedback and developer discussion, a big change is coming to reduce fatigue accumulation. View the full article
