Astralis defeat Extra Salt; Complexity send Vitality to lower bracket in DH Masters

Both Astralis and Vitality debuted new lineups in the opening matches of DreamHack Masters Spring 2021 group B, but only the Danes walked away with a victory.

Two roster changes were the main talking point of the opening matches of DreamHack Masters Spring 2021 Group B: Nicolai “⁠device⁠” Reedtz‘s departure from Astralis, which caused some role shuffling for the four-time Major champions, and Vitality‘s benching of Cédric “⁠RpK⁠” Guipouy in favor of youngster Jayson “⁠Kyojin⁠” Nguyen Van.

Any hopes for a North American upset were wiped away by Astralis quickly as they picked up a 7-0 start on Nuke against Extra Salt. Emil “⁠Magisk⁠” Reif was leading the way, but Peter “⁠dupreeh⁠” Rasmussen on the AWP as well as Lucas “⁠Bubzkji⁠” Andersen, now a permanent fixture in the active lineup, provided firepower to secure a 16-8 win over the FunSpark ULTI 2020 Europe runners-up.

Kyojin‘s debut for Vitality was spoiled by Complexity and an in-form Justin “⁠jks⁠” Savage. The Australian posted a 24K-15D scoreline alongside nine multikill rounds and a clutch to power his team to a 16-10 victory on Nuke, sending the French powerhouse to the lower bracket.

The winners of the two matches, Astralis and Complexity, will face off on Friday in the upper bracket semi-finals, while Vitality will have to stave off Extra Salt if they wish to avoid their fifth group stage elimination in a row.

Riot Games drops VALORANT ranked queue hotfix to ‘tighten matchmaking skill’

Avatar

Published

on

Riot Games has announced a surprise update for VALORANT players that is supposed to slightly change how matchmaking in competitive queues works.

There are no specific patch notes to go along with this announcement. Riot only confirmed that some form of changes had been implemented. 

“Surprise Competitive update,” Riot said. “We just rolled out some tweaks to Ranked queue that should tighten matchmaking skill. Fair warning that you may see a slight increase to queue times.”

The update, which is going live now, is set to change the ranked matchmaking system in an attempt to get players more matches with players that are around their own skill level. The increased wait times will be the tradeoff, since the game will likely be digging through more data to try and more accurately create skill-based lobbies. 

Additional competitive updates will continue to roll out as Riot makes changes and tries to improve the matchmaking experience. The next big change will likely be included in a larger patch rather than as a hotfix the developers are testing.

Evil Geniuses become first team to qualify for The International 10

Evil Geniuses has locked in a spot at The International 10 after defeating Undying to secure a minimum placement of third in the second season of the 2021 Dota Pro Circuit’s North American regional league. 

With the team’s first-place finish in the first season, finishing second at the ONE Esports Singapore Major, and locking in at least an additional 200 DPC points from the regional league, EG has surpassed the threshold to qualify for TI. Currently, the top NA team sits at 1,150 DPC points because the rankings are only taking into account the team’s guaranteed points. Overall, EG is 5-0 and have yet to drop a single game. 

Even if they don’t make the Major, which seems unlikely now that they hold the tiebreaker over Undying, they would still be heading to the biggest stage in Dota 2 come August. 

The deciding game for NA as a region will take place on May 16, when EG and Quincy Crew face off. Both teams are undefeated and the winner of that series will almost guarantee themselves a spot at the next Major. 

It is very likely Invictus Gaming qualifies for TI before the Major, while Virtus.pro and Team Secret are almost guaranteed a spot as long as they earn some additional DPC points before the end of the regular season.

Valorant Error Code VAN 81: How to Fix

Having trouble with the VAN 81 error code?
Having trouble with the VAN 81 error code?

The VAN 81 Error Code in Valorant has been appearing lately for some players, preventing them from logging in and playing. Many fans are wondering what this error code means specifically, and how they can resolve it, in order to get back to their favorite Agents and maps. Here’s what the VAN 81 error code means, and some solutions you can use.

The VAN 81 error code is a connection-related issue, and the provided text with the error code asks players to “relaunch client to reconnect.” So, let’s try that first. If you restart the Valorant client, and don’t encounter the VAN 81 error code, then congratulations. Of course, if it stills rears its ugly head, then you’ll have to take further steps. On a list detailing the specific error codes in Valorant, one solution listed is restarting both the game client and your PC.

If the error code is still encountered, then the guide suggests uninstalling both Riot Vanguard, the anti-cheat software, and Valorant, then reinstalling both. The fresh install of both of these has shown to been somewhat effective for players who are still encountering the VAN 81 code after restarting their PC.

After all of that, if you are still encountering the VAN 81 error code, then you’re best solution is submitting a support ticket to Riot Games Support, and hoping that the support team will have better luck resolving the error code.

Connection-related issues like this are always problematic, and can definitely be frustrating, so having patience with this process and the support team is absolutely recommended.

Ninja claims he once made $5 million in a month from Fortnite Support-A-Creator Code

Avatar

Since Fortnite’s release in 2017, Ninja has remained as one of the top streamers in the world. And according to him, his status helped him rake in a lot of money with the game’s Support-A-Creator Code.

During his first Fortnite stream in a while, Ninja claimed that he once made $5 million in a month using the code program, which helps creators earn 5 percent of supporters’ in-game purchases. At his peak, Ninja had thousands and thousands of viewers, and had become arguably the most well-known gamer in the world.

“I think the most I’ve ever made in a month off the creator code was like $5 mil,” Ninja said. “I’m not joking.”

Until recently, Ninja owned the record for most concurrent Twitch subscribers with more than 269,000 subs in April 2018. Back then, Ninja also broke the platform’s concurrent viewership record for an individual when he, Drake, and NFL star JuJu Smith-Schuster played Fortnite together and garnered more than 600,000 viewers.

After a short-lived run with Mixer, which reportedly included an initial $50 million exclusivity deal and a $30 million buyout when the site shut down, Ninja returned to Twitch. He now has more than 4,000 subscribers despite streaming only a few times in the last few weeks.

It remains to be seen if Ninja will continue to play Fortnite on stream more, but it could be a lucrative decision if he chooses to do so.
