Tavern Keeper – Kneipenwirt-Simulation von den Game-Dev-Tycoon-Machern

Tavern Keeper liegt ein ungewöhnliches Konzept zugrunde: Die Spieler sind für den Aufbau und die Verwaltung einer Taverne in einer Fantasy-Welt verantwortlich. Eine Wirtschaftssimulation im doppelten Sinne.

Diese Features sind geplant:

Eine eigene Fantasy-Taverne aufbauen und verwalten.
Mitarbeiter anheuern, organisieren und verwalten, so dass sie glücklich und effizient sind.
Exzentrische Charaktere bedienen, darunter menschliche Bauern und noble Orks.
Versorgung durch Händler, Nachfrage durch Kundschaft und die Vorratskammer ausbalancieren.
Eine eigene Reputation aufbauen sowie die Kunden durch Speisen, Getränke, Service und Unterhaltung zufriedenstellen.
Die Küche ausbauen, um exotischere Gerichte servieren zu können.
Die Produktion und die Arbeitsabläufe optimieren, um vorausschauend arbeiten zu können
Vorsichtig planen, das eigene Geld weise einsetzen und chaotische Events in die Planung mit einbeziehen.

Server mieten für Battlefield 1 oder „Wie verschwende ich mein Geld“

Ab sofort kann man Battlefield 1 Community-Server mieten.
Leider sind die Optionen mehr als schlecht die einem derzeit für geld geboten werden – man kann eiegntlich sogar behaupten, man sponsort derzeit die Server.

Die EA Aktionäre freut es, Spieler und vor allem Clans eher weniger.
Es fehlen vollkommen grundlegende Funktionen, angefangen beim Ban/Kick. Sollte der Server übrigens voll sein, kommt ein Admin ebenfalls nicht auf den Server und muss warten.
Was will EA also damit erreichen?
Ich vermute ja es ist ein Feldtest, um zu sehen wie blöde Kunden sein können. Anders kann ich es mir nicht erklären.

Overwatch – Sombra ist da & Patch 1.5

Blizzard Entertainment hat den Patch 1.5 für den Shooter veröffentlicht. Neben der neuen Heldin Sombra bietet er eine zusätzliche Map sowie den Arcade-Mode.

Hier die Patchnotes im original:

PATCH HIGHLIGHTS

New Hero: Sombra (Offense)

One of the world’s most notorious hackers is stepping out of the shadows: Sombra, a mysterious infiltrator who uses information to control those in power.

Sombra is a master manipulator who can hack her enemies, temporarily blocking their abilities. In addition, she can hack health packs and Torbjörn’s turret, making them useless to her opponents. She uses her fully automatic Machine Pistol to take out her enemies, getting into position using her Thermoptic Camo, which allows her to become invisible and move more quickly for short periods of time. This gives her the ability to slip past enemy defenses undetected, but she’s instantly revealed if she takes damage or attacks an enemy. She also has a Translocator, which can be tossed like a grenade. When it’s activated, Sombra is teleported to its location (even while it’s in flight).

Sombra’s ultimate ability, EMP, discharges electromagnetic energy in a wide radius, hacking anyone caught within range and destroying enemy barriers and shields.

New Feature: The Arcade!

Discover brand new ways to play Overwatch in the Arcade. Choose from a variety of regularly rotating game modes, maps, and rulesets that don’t quite fit into Quick Play or Competitive Play. Whether it’s 1-on-1 duels, 3-vs-3 skirmishes, our alternating selection of brawls, or special rulesets like “no hero switching,” you should have no problem finding a game that fits your mood. Experience is earned just like any other mode, but you can also earn Arcade-specific rewards, like Loot Boxes!

New Arena Map: Ecopoint: Antarctica

Bundle up for a journey to Ecopoint: Antarctica, the former Overwatch installation where climatologist Mei-Ling Zhou was once stationed. While researching severe weather anomalies in the region, the station was hit by an intense polar storm. Running out of options and low on supplies, the team decided to cryogenically freeze themselves until the storm passed. They believed that it would only be for a few months, but Mei awoke nearly a decade later.

Ecopoint: Antarctica is a compact new Arena map that features multiple new game modes, including a 3-vs-3 battle and 1-on-1 duel. Check it out in the Arcade.

Season 3 of Competitive Play

Competitive Play’s second season will end on November 23 at 4PM PDT (November 24 at 0:00 UTC), and the third season will begin on November 30 at 4PM PDT (December 1 at 0:00 UTC). During the week-long off season, you’ll still be able to queue for matches using the Competitive Play ruleset, but your skill rating will not be affected and no Competitive Points will be awarded.

We’ve also made a few adjustments to the skill rating system for season 3. Players will be distributed more broadly across the skill tiers, which means that your season 3 rating will probably be lower than the previous season.

Developer Comment: When season 2 started, we had more players in the Gold and Platinum skill tiers than we originally intended. This meant that skill levels varied widely for players within those tiers, and some players were achieving inappropriately high rankings during their placement matches. These players typically began the season by having their skill rating adjusted downwards after their first few matches. For season 3, skill ratings will be slightly lower after your placement matches, allowing them to increase as the season begins. After you play enough matches, your skill rating changes will return to normal.

GENERAL UPDATES

General

  • [PS4] Added PlayStation 4 Pro support
  • Made a number of data format improvements, which should decrease load times and reduce the game’s storage space requirements
  • Made several adjustments to the amount of experience needed to level
  • The amount of experience needed to reach levels 2 through 13 remains unchanged
  • The amount of experience needed to reach levels 14 through 100 has been slightly reduced
  • The amount of experience needed to reach levels after 100 is now constant (20,000 XP) and will no longer reset after each promotion

Developer Comments: With the way our experience curve works right now, players move fairly quickly through the first 23 levels of each tier (1-23, 101-123, 201-223, etc.). This is because when a player is promoted after 100 levels, the experience curve resets. While this reset has worked pretty well so far, it’s also encouraged some people to stop playing the game after they’re promoted—hoping to save those first 23 levels for a seasonal event. To help address this, the experience needed for all post-promotion levels (any level after 100) is now consistently 20,000 and will no longer reset. The total experience required to gain 100 levels after a promotion is roughly unchanged, but the total experience required to earn the first 100 levels (before the first promotion) has been slightly reduced.

  • Quick Play matches are now restricted to one of each hero per team

Developer Comment: We’ve been monitoring your feedback to the 1-hero limit in Competitive Play. Overall, we believe the game is in a better place in terms of balance and stability with the hero limit in place. For this reason, we have decided to add the 1-hero limit to Quick Play. We understand that there are a lot of players who enjoy the ability to play multiples of the same hero, so we have introduced a new mode to the Arcade called “No Limits.” This mode uses Quick Play’s original ruleset, which allows for hero stacking.

Spectating

  • The number of observer slots in Custom Games has been increased from 6 to 12

HERO BALANCE CHANGES

General

  • Dealing damage to things other than players (like Torbjörn’s turret or Symmetra’s teleporter) no longer charges ultimate abilities
  • Ultimate costs have been increased by 25% for all heroes

Developer Comment: Game-changing ultimate abilities were coming up a bit too frequently. This change helps keep them in check while still allowing them to be powerful.

Ana

Nano Boost

  • No longer increases move speed

Developer Comment: The increased speed from Ana’s Nano Boost made the ability feel unstoppable and forced Ana players to select targets that could really take advantage of the speed boost. Removing the speed boost means that Ana has a reason to apply Nano Boost to a larger variety of heroes, and enemies can fend off the attack more easily.

D. Va

Call Mech

  • Ultimate cost has been decreased by 20%
  • Mech health increased to 200 (formerly 100). Armor remains at 400
  • Movement speed while firing has been increased by 25%

Developer Comment: We reduced the cost of the Call Mech ultimate ability to compensate for the increased ultimate cost across all heroes (detailed above). D.Va players shouldn’t experience a noticeable change. The rest of these changes help D.Va’s withstand attacks, which will allow her to keep pressuring enemies.

Lúcio

Amp It Up

  • Healing per second has been decreased by 10%

Developer Comment: Lúcio’s overall healing output has always been on par with (or even higher) than Overwatch’s other healers, and his other benefits made him an almost mandatory pick.

Mei

Blizzard

  • Ultimate cost has been increased by 15%

Developer Comment: Mei’s ultimate was recently given a much larger radius. Now it’s coming up too frequently, considering the impact it can have.

Mercy

  • Passive health regeneration now activates when Mercy avoids taking damage for 1 second (formerly 3 seconds)

Developer Comment: This change allows Mercy to survive more easily by evading enemy fire.

Pharah

Rocket Launcher

  • Minimum explosion damage has been increased by 13%
  • Minimum explosion knockback has been decreased to 0%

Jump Jets

  • Lift increased by 35%

Developer Comment: These changes will make the explosions from Pharah’s Rocket Launcher more deadly, so hitting multiple targets should feel better. Her Jump Jets are also getting a boost to increase maneuverability while hovering.

Soldier: 76

Pulse Rifle

  • Bullet damage increased from 17 to 20
  • Maximum bullet spread increased from 2.2 to 2.4

Developer Comment: Soldier: 76’s damage felt a little low when compared to similar heroes. This increase affects both his normal fire and his ultimate.

Torbjörn

  • Scrap is now automatically generated over time
  • The amount of scrap collected from a fallen enemy has been decreased by 40%

Forge Hammer

  • Swing speed increased by 25%
  • Damage decreased by 27%

Developer Comment: Armor Packs have always been a powerful tool in Torbjörn’s arsenal, but it was often difficult to gather enough scrap to give your team a legitimate boost when they needed it. Conversely, if a team held on long enough, the scrap collected from fallen enemies was often able to generate so many armor packs that enemy teams had a difficult time turning the tide. Automatically generating scrap over time helps smooth out these differences and makes Torbjörn more viable. His hammer swing speed was increased to help him construct level 2 turrets more quickly.

Widowmaker

Venom Mine

  • Explosion no longer damages the player who placed the mine

Widow’s Kiss

  • Charge rate increased by 20%

Developer Comment: These changes allow Widowmaker to be more flexible and reactive.

Zarya

Particle Barrier

  • Power gained from barriers decreased by 20%

Projected Barrier

  • Power gained from barriers decreased by 20%

Developer Comment: Considering her potential damage output, Zarya was starting to feel like a mandatory pick in most situations. Rather than reduce her damage output, this change makes achieving her maximum power and damage output slightly more difficult.

USER INTERFACE UPDATES

General

  • Loading screen now displays the name of the chosen game mode when playing in the Arcade

  • Fixed a bug preventing Mercy’s staff from showing up in the “Guardian Angel” highlight intro with her Cobalt skin equipped
  • Fixed a bug preventing Reaper’s “R.I.P.” victory pose from animating correctly when the game client isn’t in focus
  • Fixed a bug that allowed Tracer to use Blink while rewinding with Recall
  • Fixed a bug preventing some of Tracer’s voice lines from activating with her Punk skin equipped
  • Fixed a bug preventing Zarya from gripping her gun’s handle in the “Deadlift” highlight Intro
  • Fixed a bug causing Zarya’s Graviton Surge to eject Reinhardt at high velocity

Maps

  • Fixed a typo on the bakery blackboard in Eichenwalde
  • Fixed a bug that allowed certain heroes to stand on unintended pillars on Ilios
  • Fixed a bug on Lijiang Tower that allowed heroes to reach unintended locations
  • Fixed a bug allowing Reaper to Shadow Step to unintended locations on Nepal
  • Fixed a bug that allowed players to contest the payload from a protected area above the gas station on Route 66
  • Fixed a bug that allowed Pharah to reach unintended locations on Volskaya Industries
  • Fixed a bug on Watchpoint: Gibraltar that allowed players to reach an unintended location near the final objective

Spectating

  • Fixed a bug that occasionally produced incorrectly colored health bars when spectating Custom Games

Vorsicht PC & Games Käufer: Amazon bekommt Abzock-Masche seit Jahren nicht in den Griff

Betrüger kapern die Shops von seriösen Amazon-Händlern und zocken unbedarfte Nutzer ab. Das Erstaunliche: Amazon schafft es seit rund vier Jahren nicht, das Treiben zu beenden.

» Weiter lesen...


Eigentlich könnte Amazon diese problematik in den griff bekommen – es bleibt aber ein El Dorado für gauner im Internet. Selbst Meldungen bleiben mitunter Studnen oder Tage ungeachtet. In der Zwischenzeit werden munter weitere betrügerische produkte hochgeladen.
Daher Vorsicht besonders beim kauf von PC (Komponenten) oder PS4 & Xbox usw. Oder alternativ einfach erst garnicht bei Amazon kaufen. 🙂

Squad is a 50 vs 50 multiplayer first-person shooter that aims to capture combat realism through communication and teamplay, emphasizing both strong squad cohesion mechanics as well as larger scale coordination, tactics and planning. It features large open maps, vehicle-based combined arms gameplay, and player-constructed bases to create a heart-thumping, visceral gaming experience which mixes organized tactical multi-squad planning with split second decision-making in real-world scale firefights.

50 gegen 50? Und das ganze nicht nur Hirnlos sondern so richtig mit Taktik?
Klingt verlockend! Ich hoffe demnächst einen Test nachschieben zu können.

„Mit der Tür ins Haus“ und das ganze sogar noch kostenlos ist bis zum 13.11. für alle interessierten von Rainbow Six: Siege möglich.
Ich empfehle allerdings mindestens einen Freund im Handgepäck, da das Spiel doch etwas taktischer ist als die anderen Fastfood-Shooter unserer Zeit und insbesondere in einem guten Team erst richtig Spaß macht.

Operation Red Crow erscheint auch demnächst für alle interessierten die das Spiel schon haben. Zwei neue Charaktäre und eine neue Karte erwarten euch.
