Inside The Game

Category

We all love Elden Ring. It has a sort of magical charm where it took all the stuff we like from Dark Souls 3 and Bloodborne (with a dash of Sekiro), and they dialed down the sadistic stuff (like the chest traps, unavoidable death, lethal lava, etc.).

As you play, you may scream questions like, “Why, Why, for the love of…Why?” Followed by angry comments about hitboxes, enemy counterattacks, and bosses not allowing you to heal. However, as you are throwing your controller at the screen for your Twitch followers to laugh at, have you considered some of the questions below?

Why is Mohgwyn Palace So Full of Rune Farming Areas?

 

If you really do your research, you are going to find a lot of Rune Exploitable areas in the Mohgwyn area, especially if you look over the ones that have been patched. And the question you forgot to ask is, “Why is this area so full of exploitable rune-farming areas?”

The answer, the very delightful answer, is that this area is no better or worse for rune farming than any other. The only difference between this area and many of the other higher-level areas is that this area has been scoured repeatedly by rune farming players.

When most players get to that Albinauric area on the Palace Approach Ledge-Road and see all those jerks sitting around waiting to be harvested for between 2000 and 3000K runes, they are delighted and start grinding up a treat. While players have been hanging around this area, they have started finding new ways to farm runes.

Shooting an arrow from the cliff down to that rot bird so that it jumps off the cliff has always been fun, but since then, people have also been finding ways to jump through the map and slash in order to get around 160K runes. As one is patched, another is found.

Even at the time of writing, there are at least two map-falling areas, and that doesn’t count the one up the blood wall that was patched with patch 1.04. The area has so many rune farming areas simply because people are scouring the area for them.

Why Are AFK Farmers So Successful?

An AFK farmer is somebody who finds a position on the map using Torrent (the horse/goat/cow) and hides. He or she then uses the taunter’s tongue to encourage invaders. The invaders arrive and can’t get to the AFK farmer, so they either quit out, and the host is rewarded, or they die trying to get to the AFK farmer, and the host is rewarded.

It is called AFK Farming (Away From Keyboard) because you simply hide your character and then leave your computer running on its own while it gathers resources for you.

AFK farmers are so successful because they prey on people who just want to have a good time. The way to defeat AFK farmers is to spend a long time finding them and killing them or to stay in the game so that the host doesn’t get rewarded for people leaving. People who are playing for fun don’t have time to punish AFK gamers, so they finger sever their way out, and the AFK farmer wins.

Are From Software going to patch this sort of thing out of the game? Sadly not. The only time From Software has acted when people are being game-breathtakingly unfair, such as glitching out your character, so you are invulnerable and then going AFK.

How Are People Getting Two of the Same Weapon?

 

Have you seen those ghostly images of people playing, or even the death animations of people dying, and wondered how they managed to get two of the same weapons? How did they get two of the Wolverine claws? Here are the many ways it is done.

Firstly, some items do drop more than once, especially the ones you pick from regular enemies. If you picked your weapon up from a chest, then there may only be one for your current run-through.

Secondly, there are boss remembrances where you take them to the old finger lady to get a weapon, and you can sometimes use those walking temple things (some have a big bell on them) to duplicate these remembrances so you can have the same weapon twice.

Thirdly, you can use a service like MMOGAH for things like Elden Ring items, and they will drop off a weapon or item for you in your game.

Fourthly, on a similar note, you can have your friend start up a new profile, get the weapon you want, and then pull you into their world as a multiplayer. They drop the weapon you want, and then you go back to your game, and you have the weapon. They then abandon that profile and carry on with their regular profile.

Fifthly, you complete the game once, and then you play in a new game plus. You then go through the game and get whichever weapon you want again so that you have two.

What Will Future Elden Ring DLC Feature?

If you are lucky enough to take a sneaky peak at the programming for the game, then not only will you learn things like the jump mechanic giving you I-frames on your bottom half, but you will also see the infrastructure that has been left behind.

It looks as if the blood/bleed weapons and spells were supposed to be far more expansive and varied than they are, so they may turn up in the DLC. Also, on that point, it is possible they left a lot of bleed stuff out of the game because they hadn’t balanced it correctly yet (considering the fact that bleed was nerfed in recent patches).

There is also an infrastructure set up for Frenzy, where it too seems like it should have had more weapons and spells. More Frenzy stuff is likely to appear in the next DLC, but this also brings up several balancing problems, especially with PVP. If they are going to add Frenzy and Bleed spells, skills, and weapons, it is likely they need to do a lot of testing prior to release because balancing them for PVP and for PVE seems very difficult.

If you were hoping that death blight would be more fully explored, then think again. It is very unlikely that From Software will make death blight something you can use against enemies and bosses, even in a DLC situation.

Why is the Game So Unbalanced?

If you disagree and figure it is pretty well balanced, then you are mostly correct. The way the game pens you into corners of the map without you knowing is brilliant. That is why when you teleport into a stronger area without realizing it; you feel outclassed and pretty vulnerable.

However, the unbalanced gaming question is one that is raised by successful rune farmers. The people who are falling through the map and slashing their way to 160K each time are wondering why the game is still difficult. Even some of the classic overpowered features, like Bleed and Comet of Azur, only seem to cheese certain bosses and not others.

The reason for this is that the game offers a massive range of boss and enemy varieties, and each has strengths and weaknesses based on different stats. You may be the most overpowered mage in the game, but if you come across a boss who moves very quickly, a boss who has high magic resist, or a boss arena where the boss is always close, then you are going to struggle no matter what level you are at.

Which Are The Fastest Weapons?

By far, the fastest weapons are daggers. They are the fastest to strike, the fastest to inflict ailments (in most cases), and are the fastest to recover. However, moving on from the balanced-unbalanced argument from above, daggers are too weak to offer a lasting benefit to players.

Unless there are builds out there that can seriously improve the usability of daggers, they are simply not worth investing your time and effort into using (unless you want a more difficult/challenging game).

Even if you have two Reduvia daggers, maxed out, and you have all the suitable talismans and stats, you are not going to have an easy time playing Elden Ring, especially since they nerfed bleed damage and bleed’s stagger in patch 1.04.

Even if you use daggers for their enhanced criticals, you are rarely in a situation where you can stealth all the enemies on the map before they go aggro. In most cases, the enemies see you before you see them.

The daggers ask that you stay close to the enemy, but most enemies and bosses are thrashing around too much. They have nerfed the amount of stagger that bleed offers, so you can’t really stun-lock enemies anymore, even if you are duel-wielding the daggers. Fighting with them feels a little ratty. As if you have to jump in there, chomp chomps your damage really quickly, and then jump away before the enemy thrashes again.

Daggers have the quickest attack times, they inflict affinities like bleeding very quickly, and they have the fastest recovery times. Sadly, the damage they do is just not enough to justify their use over the long term, especially when you pair this with the fact that you have to be very close to do damage, and it is too difficult to do damage on your horse/cow/goat, it is not just worth using daggers.

People who are convinced that video games are too violent always speak ill about them. However, there are five reasons that gaming is actually an excellent hobby.

1. It Stimulates Creativity

In addition to kids, adults also need to improve their creativity to function properly in their lives. According to studies, creativity can help people think outside the box and develop an environment of creativity in their relationships.

2. It Helps You Focus

The lack of attention and focus in younger kids has been one of the most common issues that they have encountered. We have become so accustomed to having screens that we do not have time for anything else other than gaming 20Bet.

One of the most important factors when it comes to playing video games is the need to focus on the task at hand.

3. It Teaches You Problem-Solving Skills

Aside from being fun, gaming also helps people develop their problem-solving skills. Not only can it be used in various scenarios, but it can also be utilized in everyday life. This is because it can help people improve their workplace skills and develop their social skills.

Besides being fun, gaming also provides individuals with an opportunity to improve their reasoning and critical thinking skills, as these skills people can use in daily life. In addition to these, it also requires various skills like logic and critical thinking.

4. It Helps Train Your Reflexes and Hand-Eye Coordination

One of the main reasons why people are against video games is due to the negative effects they have on children. According to studies, these games can trigger unhealthy behaviors in kids.

However, despite the negative effects of video games, they are actually beneficial for people’s hand-eye coordination, and reflexes, as well as help people develop their violent tendencies.

5. It Increases Brain Flexibility

One of the most crucial factors that people should consider when it comes to developing their cognitive flexibility is the training they can do to improve their skills. According to a study, playing strategy games can help improve people’s flexibility as it allows them to keep their focus on the task at hand.

Overwatch is a team-based first person shooter video game developed and published by Blizzard Entertainment. The game was released in May 2016, with two additional seasonal events for 2017 and 2018.

The overwatch new skins 2020 is a post that has been released by Blizzard Entertainment. It has information on the new skins and map coming to the Year of the Dog update.

According to PlayOverwatch, a new Overwatch patch has gone live, announcing the Year of the Dog New Year’s event. This is a fresh version of last year’s Lunar New Year event, and it’s accessible on all platforms: PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4.

The new cosmetics are one of the most significant improvements. Fresh emotes, highlight intros, and six new legendary skins for Hanzo, Genji, Mercy, Widowmaker, Pharah, and Zarya were launched. For a short time, there are over 50 seasonal products available. Another minor but popular feature has been added: the ability to switch skins from the character choose screen. The event will last about three and a half weeks, giving you plenty of time to acquire your treasure boxes before March 5.

 

Overwatch character

A new map created especially for the Capture the Flag game style is an unexpected addition. “Ayutthaya” is the name of the map, and it is situated in Thailand. Many small modifications were made to the game format, such as some interaction between the flag and certain powers. The most important thing to notice is that anti-climatic connections are no longer present in CTFs due to the addition of abrupt fatalities. The flags are closer together during this phase, and the first team to score wins. Blizzard has also announced a new competitive season focused on Capture the Flag to go along with these gameplay enhancements. Each season lasts four weeks, and those who finish in the top 500 at the conclusion get a unique spray and symbol.

For a short time, Lunar Loot Boxes are available for all of you to get some limited-edition seasonal goodies. If player icons and other things are included, there are over 170 cosmetic items available during this event, many of which are discounted, before they disappear until next year. Before it’s too late, fire up your favorite gaming machine and discover what good fortune awaiting you!

“Want to play Overwatch without breaking the bank? It will run nicely on this $500 gaming PC.”

Competitive MOBAs like Mobile Legends are often played at an extremely high level and many players have their own “go-to” heroes to pick. Most of the time, these go-to heroes are extremely overpowered or will do reasonably well in the current patch, due to the metagame.

There are, however, some heroes who are left out of the spotlight. Often regarded as the underdogs, they are rarely picked due to their niche playstyle and sometimes unorthodox skillset.

Today, we’re taking a look at 7 of the most underrated heroes in Mobile Legends: Bang Bang that is often overlooked and how you can actually have fun with these heroes.

And if you are looking to purchase all of the Mobile Legends: Bang Bang heroes, you can do so with some Mobile Legend top up from OffGamers here!

1. Dyrroth

Dyrroth can be best described as a hero that is a jack of all trades. He has many perks but does not particularly excel exceptionally in any of them, making Dyrroth unreliable on most occasions. That said, if used properly, Dyrroth can still cause havoc, especially against pesky enemy Tankers.

His second skill—Spectre Step—is feared by many metagame Tankers as it is both fast and cripples Physical Defense which Tankers are famed for.

Therefore, if you notice that your opponent’s hero lineup mainly consists of heroes that boast high Physical Defense, picking Dyrroth as a cheese or counter pick can prove to be a serious nuisance for the enemy team.

2.  Moskov

One would figure that a late-game beast like Moskov should be adored by many and yet Moskov seems to fall out of the spotlight due to a number of reasons.

For one, Moskov is generally a difficult hero to play. Players will need to be very mechanically sound with their positioning if they want to bring out the best of Moskov’s skills.

Plus, it does not help that Moskov is an item-reliant hero which means players will also need to prioritise resources for Moskov to be useful.

But if you are willing to put in the effort in mastering Moskov, he is actually an insanely powerful hero that comes to life during the late game. Used properly, he can deal serious damage and can also provide decent control with his second ability, Spear of Misery.

3. Roger

Many people shy away from Roger because of his extremely different playstyle and skillset. At Level 1, Roger will already have access to his Ultimate, Wolf Transformation which morphs him into his Wolf form.

Combined with his Wolf form, Roger has 6 skills that players would need to understand and most of these skills like Lycan Pounce, will require impeccable timing to be useful. As such, Roger might not exactly be the best pick for beginners as there are just so many factors to consider.

Understanding Roger’s skills are one thing, but Roger’s playstyle is also very niche as he shines during skirmishes. Hence, players will need to be sound with their decision to either engage or disengage at the right moment.

Don’t let Roger’s difficulty curve discourage you from playing him though, because we trust that with the right amount of games, players will get a general feel of how to properly utilise his strengths and power spike.

4. Bane

Generally, players tend to enjoy fast-paced heroes and Bane just isn’t one of them. His patient and poking playstyle can be a dealbreaker for many but if you give it a chance, you can find Bane to be extremely annoying for opponents to deal with.

Despite having a less-than-exciting early game playstyle, Bane is actually a super fun hero to play as his skills synergise with each other perfectly.

For instance, players would want to begin the fight with Bane’s Ultimate which knocks enemies up in the air. After that, follow up with his second skill, Ale, which guarantees a decent amount of AOE magical damage since the enemy is airborne from the Ultimate. Lastly, deal the finishing blow with his first skill, Crab Claw Cannon which has increased chain damage; perfect for grouped up enemies.

Like with most of the heroes on the list, players will need more practice to make Bane work but we can assure you the results will be very rewarding.

5. Valentina

Valentina is perhaps one of the more unique heroes in Mobile Legends: Bang Bang due to her Ultimate, I Am You which allows her to replicate her enemy’s Ultimate.

While this might all seem super fun, players will need a vast understanding of the hero roster and their abilities to fully utilise the powers of Valentina.

As such, you will see Valentina being picked and banned a lot in a professional setting but for normal pub matches, she might be avoided due to the hero’s complexity in execution and concept.

Nevertheless, Valentina is a very situational hero that can easily turn the tides for many team fights depending on the Ultimate she copies—with Valentina, decision-making and awareness are the key factors to playing her well.

6. Aamon

Design-wise, Aamon is spot on but because of his unforgiving skill execution, many casual players tend to stray away from him.

To elaborate, players will need to successfully land Aamon skills for his passive, Invisible Armor to work. Aamon’s greatest asset is his invisibility which he can use to sneak up on enemy heroes and strike them stealthily, but without his invisibility, the element of surprise is gone.

Besides having to worry about landing his skills, players will need to know how to properly roam with Aamon. A good Aamon player will also need to be constantly aware of the map and make smart movements across the arena.

While many might avoid Aamon due to its high skill requirement, we find Aamon to be very entertaining, as Aamon’s active playstyle encourages a proactive approach which we think all players should lean towards.

7. Valir

Playing with fire is fun, but the problem is that fire burns out fast. This is the case for Valir which makes him a questionable pick for many pub players.

During the early stages of the game, Valir is extremely powerful with his high burst damage, and when combined with his crowd-control effects, Valir can easily take down heroes in a flash.

And as all good things come to an end, Valir’s main issue is that its late-game potential is severely lacking due to its fragility.

In other words, Valir’s game plan will revolve heavily around the early stages while avoiding prolonged matches. What we recommend is that if your teammates have prone to picking heroes that are early-game-centric, picking Valir might be a good option as Valir is perfect for snowballing to victory early on.

And there you have it! These heroes might not have been picked that often in pub matches but that doesn’t mean that they are not good or fun to play with. Give them a chance and maybe you’ll find yourself falling in love with a new hero!

If you have become a full-time gamer, it is time to consider getting the best gaming desk. Why should you invest in the best gaming experience? Isn’t a regular desk enough? Well, if you want to have the ultimate gaming experience, all the equipment involved in this activity should be the best. That includes your desk.

But how can you select the best gaming desk? First of all, you need to know what makes a desk an outstanding gaming desk. You have to consider a lot of factors to choose the perfect gaming desk for you. Some of these factors include:

● Available space in your room;

● Personal preference (color, style, etc.);

● Allocated budget.

Some gaming desks come with features that make them more appealing. For example, a standing desk for gaming allows you to adjust the height of the tabletop with the push of a button. In this way, you can have a fully-fledged battle station to enjoy your gaming to the fullest. So, let us begin our discussion.

Why Should You Get a Gaming Desk?

If you like playing computer games for hours, you will surely prefer gaming comfortably. That is the main reason you should consider a gaming desk instead of using a regular desk. A gaming desk is designed to meet the requirements of gamers. Particularly, a gaming desk has a large surface to allow placing all your gaming rigs without space constraints.

Also, a gaming desk will provide storage options for your peripherals and accessories (headphone hooks, cup holders, etc.). Additionally, a gaming desk comes with the necessary accessories to hide the wires and cables on the desk (grommets, rear power strip, etc.). What’s more, on a professional gaming desk, you can enjoy a full-desk mouse pad. Hence, you can control your games with utmost accuracy and comfort.

These are some of the reasons to get a gaming desk. There are many more benefits that we did not list here. But you probably are already convinced that a gaming desk will make your gaming experience more rewarding than a regular table.

Choosing the Finest Gaming Desk

The most notable feature of a regular gaming desk and a high-end gaming desk is ergonomics. Top gaming desks are designed to ensure you maintain a good posture during the many hours you spend gaming. Ergonomics and comfort can take your gaming experience to a whole new level. But how to choose the best for you? Gaming desks come in different prices and designs. To narrow your search, you should consider the following points.

  • Space in Your Room and Size of the Gaming Desk

Decide what size your desk must be to accommodate all your gaming rigs and multiple monitor screens. You should probably get the larger gaming desk you can afford. But you should also take into account the space available in your room. Make sure your gaming desk will fit in.

  • Type of Gaming Desk

There are different types of gaming desks in the market: regular, ergonomic, standing (motorized), etc. There are different styles and materials too. Choose the type of desk that satisfies your requirements and needs. Take into account that some types are more expensive. Standing desks, for example, carry an extra cost because of the electric or pneumatic system to lift and drop the tabletop.

  • Price

Last but not least, make sure you can afford the gaming desk you have chosen. However, it is not recommended to compromise on ergonomics and comfort. If the gaming desk you have chosen exceeds your budget, you can look for another option with a less fancy finish, for example.

Traditional board games have always been popular. There is nothing like sitting around the table with your family and friends and competing for first place. Then video games arrived, and these have been steadily increasing in popularity for the past 40 years or so. These days, many people prefer online gaming to board games. But why is that?

Variety

There are only so many board games that can fit into your cupboard space and this leaves you playing the same ones over and over again. Eventually, you will get bored and want something new. The beauty of playing online games is that everything you need is stored on a standard-sized computer or even on a tablet or iPhone. Online games do not take up a lot of space and you can play an infinite number of them without needing any more room.

Escapism

There is nothing like being able to escape to the casinos of Atlantic City or Monte Carlo after a gruelling day at work.  Online gaming gives you the chance to do this. While you play, you can escape into another world where your boss isn’t having a go at you, your car starts the first time, and it never rains. Board games pale in comparison for many because although they are great entertainment, you still feel as if you are playing them in your own dining room rather than anywhere exotic.

There Are No Missing Parts

There is nothing more frustrating than getting out your favourite board game and realising that you have parts missing. If you are lucky, you can take parts, such as the dice, from another board game or play without one piece. However, if the part is imperative to the game, you have no choice but to buy a new one, or sometimes even a whole new game. This can be incredibly frustrating, not to mention expensive. An online game stores all of its parts online so there is no danger of finding pieces missing when you want to play which makes them more popular.

You Can Choose Who You Play With

Online games can be played by people from all over the world at the same time. It gives you the chance to meet new people and learn about unfamiliar cultures that you would not come across in your everyday life.  This can be exciting in itself. You can also play with people with different abilities. One minute you might find yourself winning easily against a beginner and the next day you might find yourself outsmarted by an advanced player. You may not even know who you are playing until you log on.

A board game is a fantastic way to bond with your friends and family but there is never really a chance to play with anyone new. Eventually, you will learn the strategy of the people you play against which does nothing to add variety to the game. This can become boring after a while, and it becomes yet another Christmas Day ritual that you have to get through in the practise of being nice to the relatives you only see once a year.

You Can Play on Your Own

The trouble with playing board games is that you need people to play with. You can’t play on your own on a wet weekend unless you invite people over and that might not be practical. On the other hand, you can play online games at any time of the day or night and instantly find people to play with. Even if it is the middle of the night where you are, it is the middle of the day in another part of the world so there are plenty of people playing. This means that you never need to feel lonely.

If you do feel like playing on your own and not being sociable then that’s alright too.  You can find a solitary game or play against the computer if you prefer to.

(facebook cover) - 2022-05-21t162015.824

Accessibility

Travel scrabble has been around for years and that has been followed by other board games that have been made more practical, so it is possible to play them on the move. However, they are still quite bulky, and it is easier to lose parts when you are not at home.

Online gaming can be done from the comfort of your own tablet or iPhone which means that you can play games anywhere using a device that is small and slim that you are carrying around with you anyway. This makes online gaming a lot easier and more accessible than board games which makes it more popular.

Setting Up and Putting Away

The process of setting up an online game is easy. Turn on your computer, find the game you want, and start playing. To put it away, simply click the X at the top of the screen and shut your computer down. It is difficult to think of something simpler than that.

Setting up a board game is a lot more complicated. You may have to build the game, place cards or accessories in certain places and then make sure you haven’t lost anything you need to play the game. Putting away is the same in reverse because everything has to go back into the box without any pieces going missing.  This can be time-consuming, and it puts a lot of people off playing board games regularly.

The Chance to Win Money

Sure, you can win fake money in Monopoly, and you could end up owning hotels all over the city but it’s not the same as gambling with real money.  Sites such as https://onlinecasinoreview.co.za/gamble-with-real-money/ are popular because they review the top casino sites in South Africa so you know which ones are worth playing and which casinos pay out the most money.

Traditional board games will always be a popular form of entertainment, but they can’t compare to the excitement and exhilaration of online gaming. No wonder many people prefer online gaming to playing board games.

Whether you’re a League of Legends rookie or a seasoned expert, you’ve been curb-stomped or solo carried by a high elo smurf in the past before. The outcome of these games is always the same. Complete joy or despair, depending on whether you’re playing with the smurf or not. More often than not, these games will leave us thinking about what is the point of smurfing in League of Legends and why people have smurf accounts at all.

Stomping The Opponents

This is undoubtedly the #1 reason why smurfing is so popular and why people create and purchase low elo smurf accounts every day. Players that reach high MMR on their main accounts often want to unwind from tryharding by playing games in low elo and destroying the opposition.

In certain situations, some players go on massive loss streaks, and they tilt, which leads them to log in on their smurf and feel better by playing against weaker players. All in all, some players just need an ego boost from time to time, and smurfing is one of the best ways to do so.

Playing with Less-skilled Players or Friends who are new to the Game

We’ve all found ourselves in a situation where our friend, who is Silver, begs us to duo queue with him and help him climb out of elo hell while our account is in high Diamond. In situations like these, the only way to help your friend climb out of ranked or play with him, in general, is to have a low elo smurf account that you can play on.

Similarly, you might want to introduce your friend to LoL, who has never played before, and to maintain balanced matchmaking, it’s a good idea to play on a low-level/low elo smurf account.

Taking a Break From Your Main Champion

Most high elo players that climb high on the competitive ladder have something in common, which is strictly maining a single champion which they master. That is usually a great plan since mastering a single champion can lead to great success in ranking, but it can also burn you out and end up losing you more games than winning.

Taking rational breaks between playing your main champion(s) is a great idea, and that’s why many players make smurf accounts where they try new champions and strategies.

Permanently Banned

Given how toxic the League of Legends community is, it should come as no surprise that a lot of smurfs are players that have purchased or made a smurf account because their main account got permabanned. Since they still want to play after receiving the ultimate punishment, most League of Legends players doesn’t quit after receiving the permanent ban on their main account, which leads them to smurfing.

Trying Your Skills on A New Server

Another reason why people smurf so much is to test their mettle against players on a different server. Many players share the opinion that EU West, and especially Korea, are the two most competitive regions with the highest quality solo queue experience. That being said, a lot of players are willing to ignore higher ping and lags just to play against the best in the world.

Furthermore, a lot of professional players and professional teams create smurf accounts, mostly in Korea, in order to play against Korean challengers who are the best solo queue players in the world. Usually, those professional teams buy hand leveled smurf accounts from reputable sites such as Turbosmurfs in order to avoid any unfortunate consequences.

Trying a New Role or Playing a Champion for The First Time

The majority of League’s player base plays only a single role in ranked which they’re best at, but if you want to take your game to the next level, it is vital to understand every role in League and their importance. Coincidentally, the best way to understand a role is to play it yourself and trying a new role or a new champion is not something you want to do on your main account for the first time.

Sadly, normal games are not a competitive environment where you can test out your skills, and ranked is the only place where players take the game seriously and play to win. Smurfs are perfect for this reason because the increased skill cap that you have over your opponents is a cushion that allows you to try and experiment with new things without being punished.

Smurfing When Stalling for Decays

The reality of the League’s ranked system is that some players punch above their weight and sometimes overachieve, ending up in a rank that doesn’t accurately display their current skill. More often than not, if they continue playing ranked on their main account, they’ll lose the rank they ended up in.

Despite that, those players cling on to the rank they’ve achieved and don’t play ranked unless they’re forced to by Riot’s decay system, which is where smurfing comes into play. Simply put, in order to maintain a certain skill level while not playing ranked on their main account, players play on smurfs to be able to experience ranked while not losing the shiny rank they’ve worked for all season long.

Troll / Toxic Account

This may come as a surprise, but there is a very high number of smurf accounts that exist for the sole purpose of trolling other players. This is an old trend that originates from earlier seasons back when players such as PSZ and L9 Ap0calypse made numerous smurf accounts where they’d troll other players. All in all, these smurfs enter games with the intention of ruining the experience for everybody by being extremely toxic or just running it down mid from the first minute.

Pro Players and Twitch Streamers Going Undercover

Ever since Twitch and professional players became internet superstars, creating and purchasing smurf accounts has become a widely common practice. If you’ve ever watched a stream of a high elo player, you were likely to see another player troll them or be toxic towards them to gain attention.

Some players take that to the next level and try to stream, snipe the pros or even ghost their games. Since this is such a major issue, pro players often buy accounts to hide their identity and play in peace, at least until they’re found out.

Virtual communities for gamblers and gamers may be found on the Internet, but the analysis of how these groups affect gambling habits is minimal. We’ll try to change that and make things more clear.

Gaming’s Social Dimension

Virtual communities consist of individuals sharing social connections, links, and virtual venues. Also, identifying with the community’s common social identity and internalizing its group norms influence users’ behavior. Moreover, associating with an online community might seriously impact people’s goals and attitudes.

Online gambling communities generally exist outside the game, for example, in discussion boards developed around gambling topics. There are gambling forums where people can share their ideas, techniques, and expertise, and forums where users may talk about the negative aspects of gambling and how to avoid them. Gamblers may also use in-game facilities like chat to communicate with their fellow players. So how does virtual fellowship affect players’ behavior? Read on to find out.

Getting Social Support

In terms of collaboration, guild members’ duties are critical. Examples of this kind of service include maintaining a guild bank used to distribute resources, such as things and money. Playing for social connection is one of the primary motivations for doing so, and it has been shown to have favorable effects. Indeed, Hickerson and Mowen (2012) found that gamers who used social bonding in video games reported good social results, such as the support of their friends in the face of challenges.

Developing Skills

In forums, chats, and message boards, players exchange data and experiences from previous games with one another to gain feedback and uncover performance problems. This fact safeguards one from overvaluing their skills and talents. Getting feedback from other players is deemed beneficial. Why? Mostly because it improves one’s poker abilities and maybe prevents compulsive gambling. This is the case when caution and self-criticism help a person to develop.

Increasing Consumption

Through long-term data collected from online players, researchers discovered that as their involvement in the community rose, so did their consumption of poker-related products. Let’s explain this effect with a simple example. If some virtual fellow would advise you 2 dollar deposit casino or even say that the mentioned site is helpful, the chances, you would check it grow. As a result, when members of a community who were previously less engaged in the community become more engaged, they spend more money.

Increasing the Allure of Gambling

Social media sites for gamblers and exposure to other people’s gambling habits might normalize the activity and make it more appealing. “Liking” and encouraging friends to play impact Facebook users’ intentions to engage in gambling-related behaviors. Interestingly, personal betting outcomes and wagering views and forecasts are more prevalent in online sports betting forums. In addition to sharing wagering advice and congratulating one other on winnings, users may also promote gambling’s acceptance.

Lowering The Risk Of Addiction

According to new research, gambling issues are more acute amongst lone gamers who do not use socializing elements in a game. The same goes for those who love to play against the machine. Accordingly, participating in poker communities both inside and outside of the game may help prevent an individual from acquiring addiction and excessive poker gambling habits. So we recommend you try virtual fellowship in case you are fond of casino games.

Overcoming Obstacles

In forums for those with gambling addictions, the focus is on sharing personal experiences and ideas for dealing with and overcoming the problem. It is crucial for people with gambling issues to have a place to get advice and support from others who are going through the same thing. Sometimes a simple talk with someone who understands you can be healing. To become a valid member of a community, one must adhere to established rules. As a gambler’s identity is partly constructed in forums, these groups may also be used to build a person’s self-confidence.

Conclusion

One of the reasons why online communities have been so successful is that people have a fundamental desire for social connection and belongingness. This statement is true for gambling too. Although online gambling and gaming are lonely hobbies (a user is often physically alone), associated virtual communication is crucial in both cases.

Online gambling and gaming communities normalize gambling and gaming habits and impact purchasing behavior; yet, communities may also promote moderate forms of gambling, give social and emotional support, and assist in coping with gambling issues. A player might also develop his skills and get social support.

Over the years, video games have come in all shapes and sizes.

They’ve loaded from cassettes and cartridges, so-called floppy disks that were rigid, and CD-ROMs. You can download them today or stream them, and if you look hard enough, almost every single game ever released can be found to play on your PC.

Some gamers now find journeying back in time just as exciting as buying and playing new video games. There was something simpler about games of yesteryear; they were more playable as they couldn’t rely on fancy graphics and sound to lure you in. They had to be enjoyable, responsive and keep you entertained even if you were essentially doing the same thing repeatedly. Today, if you buy an open-world 3D adventure and the side quests are not up to much, the game will be panned. Before the turn of the century, most releases relied on one sole principle to appeal to customers.

The best of those are still cult classics today, and many have had a lasting impact on the world of gaming. Here is our pick of four influential video games you should play at least once.

Worms (1995)

Worms was released in 1995 with tongue-in-cheek humor and an interesting concept. It’s a turn-based 2D battle game, with elements of strategy thrown in for good measure. Over the years, the Worms franchise has grown, reaching out into the 3D market on consoles. The game’s influence can’t be denied; Worms 4 can be found on mobile devices and is popular today. The online slot gaming provider Foxy Games has a title based on the series Worms Reloaded, which trades on the imagery, if not the battle concept. You can even buy Worms Rumble, the latest in the series, on PlayStation 4 and Xbox. All these tie back to the 1995 original.

Lemmings (1991)

Lemmings landed on home computers in 1991 and quickly became a hit. The idea was to save as many Lemmings as possible by navigating them through treacherous levels intended to kill them all off. It was a puzzle game with strategy elements, but like Worms, it was also laced with humor. Like Worms, you can find remakes on the current generation of home consoles and titles such as Lemmings: The Puzzle Adventure on mobile devices. However, to truly appreciate the journey, you have to find the original for a few hours of play.

Cannon Fodder (1994)

Cannon Fodder is an underrated classic, not just because of how it played, but because it was one of the first video games that came with a message. As Generation Amiga pointed out, its tagline was ‘war has never been so much fun’, and the game was fun. It presented you with various levels to conquer, and you could power up your soldiers to navigate the point and click interface. However, you got attached to your soldiers, and at the end of each level, you were presented with a tribute to each who died. It conveyed a strong anti-war message, from the title, through the gameplay and beyond. It’s still as touching and addictive as it was in 1994, and it was very much one of the first video games to deliver a message.

Super Mario Brothers (1985)

Super Mario Brothers is perhaps one of the most influential games ever released, not least because it sparked a franchise that is still popular today. It dropped on the Nintendo Entertainment System in 1985 and quickly became a phenomenon. It is the grandfather of platform games, a genre popular throughout the late eighties and nineties. It wasn’t just revolutionary in terms of design and concept; it was also insanely playable.

If you are tired of watching TikTok videos and scrolling the Instagram feed nonstop every evening, it is worth reviewing the concept of quality leisure. Online entertainment is much more than that, and you just need to broaden the perception of what it is possible to do on the Internet.

Even if you are tied to a low-end device, watching short clips and procrastinating on influencers’ pictures is only a very tip of the colossal variety of amusement available today. From live-chatting with strangers to learning business basics with the Casino Market system: you will not come up with the idea that is impossible to implement online.

Let us review the most enjoyable and popular ways to pass the time while being on the Internet.

Multiplayer Games

Regardless of age, people love interacting in the virtual world. The popularity of computer games took a lot of countries by storm. MMORPG, strategies, first-person shooters, and other multiplayer content is rightfully considered one of the most enjoyable pastime activities is currently existing.

Online Tabletops

Board games are also a heavily developed industry. The exclusive mechanics that different publishers offer gather millions of players. While the main aim of tabletop entertainment is to unite people in real life, different obstacles may require online participation instead.

Casino Sites

The advent of modern technologies made it possible to spin slots and place bets with the help of the Internet. It is important to perceive it as a pleasant pastime, not as an earning method. Thousands of sites created for different destinations offer various entertainment that can be found in ground halls and not only.

Most popular online casino manifestations:

Furthermore, sports betting also represents a huge industry of online entertainment. People support their favorite teams and wager on the possible results of their games. An astonishing pastime provides a great variety of emotions and feelings.

Virtual Tours

Unless you are a multimillionaire who can hop on a private jet after the workday and travel to France’s Louvre, Tokyo National Museum in Japan, or elsewhere, going sightseeing online might be a good idea. Moreover, if you own a VR headset, the tour will be even more realistic.

Most popular online museums and art galleries:

Quality Leisure

A lot of people enjoy mixing their entertainment with something that is going to bring them benefit. Studying new information is good, but ensuring the received knowledge can yield real money is better.

Spending quality online time researching the possibilities of the gambling industry, for example, can bring a person closer to launching a casino site. Considering a wide range of budget options, becoming an operator of a gaming portal is possible for the majority of people.
