Riot Games’ decision to release their flagship MOBA game League of Legends on the mobile platform in 2020 surprised many fans. However, it seems that this vision of the future is bearing fruit because Riot Games itself seems to see great potential in League of Legends: Wild Rift.

Reporting from The Esports Observer, it is reported that Riot Games will make a big commitment to the development of LoL: Wild Rift including holding its first global esport tournament at the end of this year.

“We firmly believe that mobile games will help change the future of esports,” said John Needham, Global Head of Esport at Riot Games.

Needham further explained that they have not confirmed with certainty, but they are committed to holding a global Wild Rift esports event in the fourth quarter of 2021.

“For us, this (commitment) is about learning from our 10 years of experience in LoL esports as well as learning what makes the mobile community special, creating a unique and exciting sport for Wild Rift players to watch.” Needham continued.

Riot Games’ commitment to LoL: Wild Rift deserves to be appreciated, considering that this mobile game is still young and even released for the North American region in March 2021. However, Riot Games itself wants to immediately make a breakthrough for the mobile esports market.

LoL: Wild Rift itself has actually been doing research long before the initiation of the global tournament was held. One of them is the penetration of Southeast Asia, which is the main market for mobile esports. Including one of them is to make Wild Rift as an esports sport in the upcoming SEA Games.

Another surprising fact is that LoL: Wild Rift and other mobile game titles have the highest female player rates compared to similar games on PC. This is evidenced by more and more esport organizations in Southeast Asia that have registered their female squads into the Wild Rift even though they are still young.

Even though the Southeast Asian market is the region with the fastest Wild Rift development right now, Riot Games itself remains committed to developing the LoL: Wild Rift esports ecosystem evenly throughout the world.

Not long ago, Netflix officially announced an anime adaptation of the Dota 2 game titled Dragon’s Blood. In collaboration with Valve, the Dragon’s Blood anime will tell a lore chapter that was not previously shown in the game.

Every Hero Dota 2 has a lot of stories, respectively. In fact, some of them shared their experiences and travels. In the Dragon’s Blood anime, there will be 5 Dota 2 Heroes who will later appear as characters.

Dragon Knight

Yep, from the first trailer, the story in the Dragon’s Blood anime does tell the story of Davion the Dragon Knight. It seems that the story in Dota: Dragon’s Blood will bring Davion’s experience to become a true Dragon Knight. He will also face an Old Dragon named Slyrak who will bring him valuable experiences for the rest of his life.

The Dragon Knight that we know in Dota 2 can turn into a dragon. This is where we will look at the origins of why Davion got his dragon form, later. In addition, there are still many mysteries that exist in the world of Dota 2 and it seems, will be revealed in this anime.

Mirana

Following the character promotion and the cast list of the voice actors, it has been confirmed that Mirana will also be a character in the Dragon’s Blood anime. In fact, he was seen side by side with Davion. It could be that both of them will both find their destiny in this part of the Dragon’s Blood story.

In his Hero story, Mirana is told to have the blessing of the Moon Goddess, namely Selemen, who will also appear in the anime. We can also see that Mirana did not ride her tiger, Sagan, and it could be that the meeting between the two was just told in the anime.

Luna

Apart from Mirana, Luna will also be a character who gets her role in this anime. Luna and Mirana are both known to be rivals and in their lore, they had clashes with each other. Here, Luna will lead the Dark Moon troops who are seen preparing to fight.

It could be that Luna will be a minor antagonist in the Dragon’s Blood story. The reason is, they are known to be planning to attack the temple at Nightsilver Woods while Mirana is the guardian of the sacred site.

Invoker

The most talented magician from all over the universe, Invoker is also confirmed to be present in this anime. Carl, who seems to be quite old, seems to have narrated that there is a “great danger” that will occur. It is not clear what kind of danger the Invoker meant.

In the game, Mirana knows the name Invoker by heart and it seems that the two of them will become close friends. Meanwhile, Invoker, who is known as the most powerful magician, also seems to be telling another chapter that opens a new story beyond the Dragon Knight journey.

Underlord

Finally, it seems that Underlord will play a big role in this Dragon’s Blood anime. The reason is, there is a character named Kaden who could be Davion’s mentor. Meanwhile, Underlord had an item called Kaden’s Blade which he could have gotten after killing this other Dragon Knight.

This Underlord who is a demon is one of the higher-ups of the Foulfel dimension. He can open a portal to enter the human world even at unexpected times. It is not clear what this Underlord’s motive is and what his involvement with the big story in Dragon’s Blood is.

So, which of the five Dota 2 Heroes would you like to see some anime characters appear, here? Don’t hesitate to share your impressions in the comments column below.

Entering the beginning of April, of course all internet citizens know what April fools day is, where citizens or people around the world make a joke that makes someone laugh. Now that social media is growing, not a few gaming or media companies are taking part in this April Fools event.

One of them is like Razer which shows off the Razer Rapunzel (RGB hair dye), then NVIDIA which presents NVIDIA G-Assist (Usb which contains AI), and recently Riot Games also celebrated April Fools’ Day by providing patch updates. hilarious in the Valorant game.

On patch 33 1/3, Riot Games provides a buff to smoke Brimstone, which from only 20 seconds has now become 100 seconds. Then Breach also found a nerf in the form of a reduction in the number of flash points (flash) which originally had 3 flashes, now only 1 flash. Now Phoenix’s flash button has also been added to 6 variants, namely left, right, up, down, back, and towards the area under his feet.

Not only giving buffs and nerf to agents, Riot Games is also being kind with a set of free skins called “Matte Black collection” for the players, you can see photos of these skins below.

Apart from the hilarious patch above, previously Valorant has also released an update (Patch 2.06) of 1.1 GB which provides massive buffs on Viper and Yoru. The change is that if the players touch Viper’s smoke, they (the player) will receive a decay of 50 damage directly and not gradually like the previous patch. Not only that, viper’s skills will stay on for 2 seconds even though he was shot to death by an opponent.

In patch 2.06, Yoru also gets a buff in the form of changing his gatecrash (teleport) skill which originally had to kill 2 previous players, now only need to wait for 35 seconds. Apart from Yoru, Bucky’s shotgun also gets a nerf in the form of reduced damage and the radius that will be received from the opponent. So that the Bucky players are forced to create a new tactic to use their flagship weapon.

Keep in mind, Patch 33 1/3 above is a patch to celebrate April fools only. While the 2.06 patch is a real update patch. So please don’t take the first update seriously.

The gaming and esports industries are synonymous with the world of men. Even so, there are still some female esports players who have managed to achieve success. Here are 10 female esports players with the largest income, according to Esports Earners. Interestingly, the players who entered this list competed in different games.

And not long ago, he signed a contract with a new team, Shopify Rebellion. Indeed, Starcraft’s esports scene is not that big when compared to other esports games such as League of Legends or Counter-Strike: Global Offensive. Even so, major tournaments from Starcraft are still in high demand. So, Scarlett will still be able to continue her career.

2. Vi “VKLiooon” Xiaomeng


VKLiooon sits at the second position on the list of female players with the largest income. In total, he has earned US $ 238 thousand. She is one of the well-known female players in the Hearthstone esports scene. She suddenly became famous when she won the Hearthstone Grandmasters Global Finals in 2019.

He managed to win big prizes thanks to the success of his team, Carolina Core, in the Championship Gaming Series (CGS). With a total income of US $ 122.6 thousand, she is the female esports player with the third largest income. Indeed, Mystik’s career as a professional player did not last long.

He only lost in the final round to former champion Du “NuckleDu” Dang.

6. Nina “Nina” Qual

Until now, she is still actively participating in Starcraft competitions with Team eXoN. Prior to that, he was part of ROOT Gaming. He first joined ROOT Gaming in 2012.

However, he left Shanghai Dragon in October 2020. In total, Geguri managed to get US $ 70.1 thousand.

Both of them are the first female Fortnite players to get contracts with big esports teams. Together with Rhux and Pika, Tinarae managed to become the first winner of TwitchCon 2019.

9. Maureen “Alice” Gabriella


If you are a PUBG Mobile player or an esports fan, you must have heard the name Maureen Gabriella aka Alice. Throughout her career, the Bigetron Red Alien player has raised US $ 57.4 thousand, making her the 9th largest earning female esports player. Acting as a Sniper or Support, Alice has indeed won many prestigious competitions with Bigetron, such as PUBG Mobile Pro League – Fall Split 2020: SEA. In PUBG Mobile Global Championship Season 0: League, Alice and Bigetron won second place.

10. Marjorie “Kasumi Chan” Bartell


Marjorie Bartell’s name is known in the esports world after she defeated Sarah Harrison in the Gaming Series Championship, the Dead or Alive tournament. In less than a year, he managed to win over US $ 55,000, making him the highest-grossing Dead or Alive player. He took the name “Kasumi Chan” from one of the characters in the Dead or Alive series.

The rapid development of the esports industry has indeed made campuses and schools involved in this ecosystem including providing scholarships for esports players – even though it has polemics and its relevance as well. Interestingly, according to a study conducted by The Associated Press (AP), the majority of esports scholarship recipients are male.

Male gamers occupied 90.4% of roster positions on the team and 88.5% received scholarships, out of a sample of 27 American public schools surveyed by AP. The difference between these scholarship recipients may indeed be a bit predictable, even though 41% of total gamers in the United States are women (according to the Entertainment Software Association) and there are no physical boundaries that differentiate between women’s and men’s competitions.

“It is sad but not surprising.” Grace Collins, a practitioner in gaming, education, and gender told AP News.
AP actually requested data on players and scholarship recipients from 56 public schools in the US, which are among the 192 participants for the National Association of Collegiate Esports. However, several schools refused to provide data or did not respond.

The number of female gamers who are involved in becoming professional players is in fact very minimal. There may be several reasons why not many female casual gamers are esports athletes. First, women in the gaming and esports industries have an easier and faster alternative to having a career or seeking popularity, namely by exploiting their respective bodies and faces.

Second, from the point of view of male gamers, they may also tend to underestimate women’s abilities and be seen as a sweetener. Third, esports tournaments aimed specifically at women also have difficulty continuing or gaining the same popularity as official esports tournaments where there are almost no female players.

In fact, if we want to be fairer, the struggles of female public figures in the game and esports industry who don’t rely on body exploration are much tougher. Most of the market in the gaming industry itself, which is mostly male, often judges social media celebrities only from their appearance.

Those with attractive looks and bodies can gain popularity faster and easier. On the other hand, those who do not want to explore the body have to fight much harder to reach the same level of popularity. This is what perhaps should be realized and edited to the men who dominate the gaming market.

For that, maybe we need to look further at why the gaming girl trend has increased so rapidly in the last few years. Why is exploration of the body and face a shortcut to gaining popularity? Because what these social media celebrities have to offer (intentionally or not) is an illusion or dream of a dream partner who has the same interests.

The point is like this, if you only talk about looks, celebrities on the big screen or big screen are no less. But most social media users are probably aware that they are at the level of the clouds. Unless you are also a big celebrity, a wealthy businessman, or have a very valuable and rare selling point, celebrities in this class are most likely impossible for you to achieve. Meanwhile, celebrities in the social media class may seem more achievable.

That’s why, usually, social media celebrities who openly claim to have a partner will rapidly decline in popularity; because it shatters the illusions of the fans.

So, for social media users, especially men and singles, believe that social media celebrities also don’t want to be with you if all you do is share, like, retweet, swipe up, or anything else without meaningful interaction and communication. . There is nothing wrong with seeing and assessing a gaming celebrity further than just face and body, such as their ability to play, content creativity, extensive knowledge, or others. Because, after all, the market also determines what kind of content maturity is the new trend in an industry.

Originality is overrated, and that’s why more and more games are being made with remake or remastered versions. If you do not agree with this statement, I invite you to debate with fans of Final Fantasy VII Remake.

For a game company with a long history like Square Enix, remakes and remasters have proven to be effective ways to please many parties; Veteran gamers are happy to be able to touch their favorite game again, young gamers are happy because they can share in the fun of their parents’ idol games, and developers and publishers can reap profits without having to bet on the success or failure of a new IP.

In fact, Square Enix already has plans to release a remake of their other IP. In order to make this happen, they decided to collaborate with Forever Entertainment. The Polish game company is reportedly trusted to develop several game remakes from one IP owned by Square Enix.

As a remake, of course the visual aspects of these games will be completely overhauled while maintaining the gameplay as well as the narrative. But what is of course the question of many people is, what IP is meant? Is it still Final Fantasy? Or even Dragon Quest?

The possibilities are obviously very many, because Square Enix does have a lot of very popular game franchises. I personally would not refuse if the remake were Chrono Trigger and Chrono Cross, or maybe even the Front Mission series. What about Kingdom Hearts? Star Ocean? Drankengard? Lufia? Valkyrie Profile? Parasite Eve?

All of them have the potential to be remade according to modern standards. But unfortunately for now, both Square Enix and Forever Entertainment are still reluctant to reveal the IP in question. Forever Entertainment itself is not a strange name in the world of game remakes. One of their newest and greatest works recently is Panzer Dragoon: Remake which has received very positive response.

Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade

About a year after its release, Final Fantasy VII Remake will finally get a next-gen upgrade on June 10, 2021. The version intended for the PlayStation 5 is called Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade, and owners of the original game on PS4 can receive this upgrade for free.

As can be guessed, of course there are improvements in terms of performance and graphics quality in the FF VII Remake Intergrade. Players can later choose between “Graphics Mode” which prioritizes 4K resolution, or “Performance Mode” if it is more concerned with smooth gameplay at 60 fps.

The DualSense controller’s haptic feedback and adaptive trigger will also be integrated, and of course players will find loading times much shorter. But Square Enix is ​​apparently not finished.

Intergrade will later also offer new episodes to play, as well as the return of one of the favorite old plays, namely Yuffie Kisaragi as a playable character in that episode. This Yuffie episode will have to be purchased separately as a paid DLC from the PlayStation Store.

Of course this is very exciting news for fans of FF VII, but Square Enix apparently still has other surprises for them.

Final Fantasy VII The First Soldier

The titles above are the titles of the new battle royale game Square Enix is ​​working on for Android and iOS devices. Battle royale? Yes, you read that right. Honestly, I myself still have trouble digesting the combined concept of two things that should be very contradictory. But apparently that’s what Square Enix did when working on this spin-off game.

Lore, The First Soldier will act as a prequel to FF VII, telling the origin of the elite Soldier troops about three decades before the events that occurred in FF VII. If you look at the trailer, the gameplay of The First Soldier looks like it will combine shooting from a third-person perspective with Final Fantasy-style combat.

Interestingly, The First Soldier will later also insert a number of RPG elements into the battle royale formula that is raised, such as a level system that involves a number of monsters to be exterminated. Apart from the solo mode, The First Soldier will also offer a team mode with three players.

Final Fantasy VII Ever Crisis

Apart from The First Soldier, Square Enix also has another spin-off entitled Final Fantasy VII Ever Crisis which is also intended for mobile devices. Ever Crisis is basically a compilation of all the stories that have been lifted, starting from the original FF VII, Before Crisis, Dirge of Cerberus, Crisis Core, to the Advent Children film, as well as a number of new narrative elements that focus on the origins of Soldier.

Gameplay will be presented per chapter, with combat which of course looks very familiar. Unlike The First Soldier which will be released this year, Ever Crisis is planned to be available next year on Android as well as iOS.

For developers, creativity is the main thing in making games. With good creativity, they can create unique things in their game for gamers to enjoy. There are many ways they do to create uniqueness.

One of them is presenting an easter egg. Even though it has become a common thing, from day to day, the easter eggs served by game creators are getting more and more unique. One of them is to make the creator himself the boss that gamers must fight.

This method is the most fun way to be enjoyed. When are you fighting with the game creator in their game, right? So, which games and creators are doing this? Relax, Gimbot has compiled the complete list. Here is a review of the game creator who is the boss in the game itself!

  1. (Ultra Pride) Edmund McMillen and Florian Himsl

Ultra Pride is the boss that you will face in The Binding of Isaac. Yes, Ultra Pride is the alter ego of the creators of this game, Edmund McMillen and Florian Himsl. Why did they create Ultra Pride? After investigating, it turned out that Ultra Pride was a form of pain and sacrifice when they created the game.

Both McMillen and Himsl suffered and were sacrificed when creating the game. They are very perfectionists, so they want their games to slide as well as possible. Ultra Pride was created as a tribute based on their efforts in developing this game.

Ultra Pride is divided into two, one is McMillen with a larger body size, while Himsl is smaller and floats. Uniquely, this boss can appear randomly at any time.

  1. (Icon of Sin) John Romero

Maybe this is one of the weirdest Easter eggs in game history but it is also the coolest. Yes, in DOOM 2, gamers will face John Romero who is the co-Lead Designer of the DOOM game.

In the game, this boss is called The Icon of Sin and is also the last boss of DOOM 2. Some of its unique games don’t realize that they are fighting against the creators of the game itself. Interestingly, if the audio from this boss is played backwards, the resulting sound will be To Win the Game You Must Kill Me, John Romero.

This means, to finish the game, you have to kill John Romero. Something very unique and legendary in its time!

  1. (Edgar Wright) Edgar Wright

Basically, Edgar Wright was not directly involved in the making of this game. But somehow the developer used the figure of Edgar Wright as one of the enemies he had to fight. Edgar Wright himself is a writer who created the story of Scott Pilgrim.

Maybe that’s the reason for this developer to include the creator of the film. Fighting against it is said to be a very interesting thing to do. Moreover, this one figure is quite challenging to face.

  1. (IGA) Koji Igarashi

Koji Igarashi is one of the most outstanding figures in the gaming industry. What makes it so amazing? It’s clear that Koji Igarashi has an iconic legacy in the gaming industry. Yes, that game is Castlevania: Symphony of the Night which is considered one of the best games in the Castlevania franchise.

Whereas in Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night, Igarashi really contributed a lot. He did not hesitate to overhaul the game’s graphics in order to deal with complaints raised by gamers. Fortunately, this game was a success when it was launched.

Interestingly, Igarashi’s figure appears as one of the bosses here named IGA who can make gamers absurdly upset. IGA is a challenge for hardcore gamers.

  1. (CEO Boss) Yosuke Matsuda and Kenichi Sato

Here they are, creators who are really good to fight in their own game. The reason is, Yosuke Matsuda is present as one of the secret bosses in this game. Interestingly, gamers will be bothered too because Kenichi Sato will also be there.

Yosuke Matsuda himself is a senior from Square Enix while Sato is a senior from the Platinum Games. The cool thing is, after painstakingly defeating the two of you, you can use their face masks in NieR: Automata. Unique!
