HasanAbi defeats The Nameless King on Dark Souls 3 after skipping it on first playthrough

Published

on

After months of avoiding the challenge, popular Twitch streamer HasanAbi has finally conquered The Nameless King in Dark Souls 3.

During recent streams, Hasan returned to the game with the plan to silence doubters and defeat its final secret boss once and for all. After plenty of deaths, the streamer finally dealt the finishing blows.

With over 20,000 people watching his stream, this victory saw doubters lose millions of channel points while those that had faith in the streamer reaped the rewards of his victory.

Dark Souls 3 is a FromSoftware game known for its challenging gameplay and brutal punishment for dying. The Nameless King is a boss that many players see as the most difficult in the base game. The fight is split into three phases, with safe zones and margins for error shrinking as the player advances into the fight.

Hasan played through the game in August 2020, but after failing to defeat The Nameless King the streamer chose to skip this optional boss and continued onto the Soul of Cinder, defeating him and finishing the game’s main story.

After revisiting Dark Souls 3 nine months later and now having defeated all bosses in its base game, all that is left is for Hasan to challenge himself once again and take on the DLC available for the game, which brings in multiple new bosses that many believe are more difficult than those in the base game.

Best Machamp build in Pokémon UNITE

Published

on

When people think of something that is well-rounded, most of the time they would likely think it means being good or at least decent at multiple different things. And if that is the case, don’t show them Pokémon UNITE’s version of Machamp. 

That’s not to say that Machamp isn’t strong, he is great in the right situations. It just takes the right player or team composition to unlock his full potential since his moveset is very strong, yet limited. 

As an All-Rounder, Machamp is meant to supplement its teammates, providing the ultimate option to swing a teamfight. The Fighting-type shines brightest when it is able to engage and clean up teamfights or catch other Pokémon on rotation in combination with a ranged attacker backing it up. 

Machamp can be a force to reckon with if you can pair it with the right partner and let it loose. And, for 8,000 Aeos Coins or 460 Aeos Gems, players can unlock the brawler, adding a powerful option to their UNITE roster. 

So if you like challenging yourself to thrive in a specified, yet key role, here is the best build you can default to for Machamp.

Held Items

Muscle Band

Regardless of what build you want to use for Machamp, the Muscle Band is a must because it gives it an incredible boost to his most important stat. Not only will his Attack stat get a buff, but its Basic Attacks will come out even faster, making it an even bigger threat. 

Scope Lens

Most players like to play with fire, running a Scope Lens to give Machamp a boost to its critical hit damage. This is good for trying to pile on as much damage as possible while pinning down opposing Pokémon, but when used in tandem with the move Cross Chop, it can melt even the bulkiest of walls. 

If you don’t care about upping the crit chances, you could also swap this out for Leftovers or an Assault Vest to try and give yourself a bit more survivability. 

Float Stone

A boost to movement speed and the Attack stat? Sign literally every Machamp player who loves to rush down their opponents and throw them back to their teammates, up.  

Battle Items

Eject Button

It looks like most Machamp players like having the Eject Button equipped to keep a little bit of utility in their back pocket. They can use it as an added way to get in on tricky enemies, or as a way to escape when a push or teamfight is going poorly. 

Moves

Level One: Karate Chop

Most Pokémon simply go with their first offensive option once the game starts. Karate Chop is a simple, yet effective way to dismiss wild Pokémon and unlucky enemies that aren’t smart enough to stay away from an incoming Machop. 

Also, Bulk Up just isn’t that good. 

Level Five: Cross Chop

This move slot is where Machamp really starts to show its stuff. Cross Chop is great because it does a massive amount of damage with a rushing motion, and has a high chance to crit. Close Combat is also good, but most players like the more direct use for Cross Chop and the fact that it is harder to dodge. 

Upgrade (Level 11): Increases Attack with each Basic Attack, up to a set max. 

Level 7: Submission

If you know, you know. You are never safe when a Machamp has Submission because you can ignore basically everything, displace your target, deal damage, and stun them. All while boosting the next Basic Attack and giving the moves increased speed for a short period. 

Upgrade (Level 13): Further increases critical-hit rate and increases basic attack speed.  

Level Nine: Barrage Blow 

Seeing a Machamp use its Unite move and rush you down might be one of the scariest things in the game since there is very little you can do to stop it. It increases the user’s movement speed, Attack, Defense and Special Defense for a short time, and when used again unleashes a powerful combo attack.

How to unlock Pokémon in Pokémon UNITE, all Unite License costs

Published

on

Pokémon UNITE launched with a relatively small roster of playable Pokémon, but TiMi Studio and The Pokémon Company have already confirmed that the game will be getting multiple new Pokémon in the near future. 

Right from the start, players will get to pick one of several Pokémon to unlock after finishing the tutorial. 

From there, TiMi has also made a handful of Pokémon obtainable through various events and challenges, which players will just need to complete and participate in to obtain. However, the main method for unlocking the Pokémon you want to use is by purchasing their Unite License. 

A Unite License is the item you need to get in order to fully unlock a Pokémon for your roster, which means you can use them at any time in any mode. There is also a rotation of Pokémon that players can use without unlocking in standard mode. 

So if there is a Pokémon you really want to play as in UNITE but you’re not sure what ways you can unlock it, here is every method possible in the game. 

Free to obtain Pokémon 

Starter choice

Once you boot up the game, you are thrown right into a tutorial to learn the basics of UNITE’s gameplay. Once completed, you get to pick one of five Pokémon to unlock instantly. 

This will act as your “starter” for this game, which simply means it is the first Pokémon you have access to for online matchmaking. No other aspect of the game is impacted by this decision, other than you will need to obtain the other four options later. 

Here are the five Pokémon you can choose from after the tutorial. 

  • Pikachu
  • Charizard
  • Snorlax
  • Talonflame
  • Eldegoss

Challenge and event rewards

After unlocking their starter, players will be able to get a few other Pokémon simply by playing the game, completing challenges, and logging in every day. 

Some of these Pokémon will only be available in this way for a limited period of time, so you should pay extra attention to those options and make sure you get them if you don’t want to purchase their Unlock License later. 

It is also important to note that, if you purchase a Pokémon’s Unite License and then later receive it as a reward, you will still get something from the duplicate. Typically it will be the equivalent number of Aeos Coins that you would have spent unlocking them anyway, so you just get that amount back.

Related: All trainer level requirements and rewards in Pokémon UNITE

Here are all of the Pokémon you can currently unlock for free by playing the game. 

  • Zeraora
    • Free bonus for players who download UNITE prior to Aug. 31
  • Slowbro
    • Reach Trainer Level 2
  • Venusaur
    • Reach Trainer Level 5
  • Alolan Ninetails
    • Day two bonus for the “14 Day Welcome Gifts” event
  • Cinderace
    • Day eight bonus for the “14 Day Welcome Gifts” event
  • Greninja
    • Day 14 bonus for the “14 Day Welcome Gifts” event
  • Crustle
    • Complete all seven steps of the Beginner Challenge

Unite License prices

If you want to play a Pokémon that isn’t available for free via the starter selection, challenges, or events, you will need to purchase their Unite License from the Unite Battle Commission shop. 

You will have the option of paying in the basic Aeos Coin currency or using premium Aeos Gems. However, once you purchase a Pokémon’s Unite License, you don’t need to buy it again. 

Here are all of the costs in both coins and gems for every Pokémon in the game. 

  • 6,000 Aeos Coins or 345 Aeos Gems
    • Charizard
    • Eldegoss
    • Pikachu
    • Slowbro
    • Snorlax
    • Talonflame
  • 8,000 Aeos Coins or 460 Aeos Gems
    • Alolan Ninetails
    • Cinderace
    • Cramorant
    • Crustle
    • Machamp
    • Mr. Mime
    • Venusaur
    • Wigglytuff
  • 10,000 Aeos Coins or 575 Aeos Gems
    • Absol
    • Garchomp
    • Genfar
    • Greninja

Los Angeles Thieves stun OpTic Chicago, complete reverse sweep to cap Stage V group play

Published

on

The Los Angeles Thieves pulled off one of the most unlikely wins the Call of Duty League will see all season, coming down from a 2-0 deficit against OpTic Chicago to win 3-2 today and break OpTic’s four-match winning streak.

Chicago looked untouchable in the first two maps of the series, winning Moscow Hardpoint 250-72 and Express Search and Destroy 6-1. But from that point on, the series was all Thieves.

L.A. flipped a switch and started to pop off on every map. Kenny had himself a series, posting a 1.13 K/D over the series’ five games, including a dominant performance in map three. Kenny went 31-19 on Checkmate Control leading the Thieves to a 3-1 win in a map that L.A. had to have. 

“We knew that map three would be the swing map to at least get back in the series and make it close,” Kenny said after the series. “They were just dominating us one and two, so going into map three, like I said, we just went in confident, just played our game, and just said ‘play like we play in practice.’”

For OpTic, there’s no sugarcoating that this was a brutal collapse. Chicago were on the precipice of finishing Stage Five group play undefeated with a 5-0 record and heading into the final two events of the CDL season with a ton of momentum. Instead, they let a shaky Thieves team reverse sweep them to end their win streak. 

This loss isn’t the end of the world for OpTic, but they’ll need to regain heading into next week’s Stage Five Major. Chicago is a team that feeds on positive momentum, so they’ll need to ensure that this loss doesn’t carry over to their next set of matches. But not all is lost for OpTic. The team locked up the first seed in Group A for the Stage Five Major and will begin the event in the winners bracket. 

Both Chicago and L.A. will be back in action at the CDL Stage Five Major in Arlington, Texas starting on July 29.

Best Greninja build in Pokémon UNITE

Published

on

Pokémon UNITE feels like a game that heavily depends on offensive Pokémon to set the tone for every match, mostly because the games are meant to last 10 minutes and the gameplay needs to ensure that players can keep a solid pace. 

Greninja is one of those offensive options, but the Water-type feels like it can flex into many roles, whether that be a laner, jungler, or even playing some hybrid form of support despite being labeled an Attacker type. 

Most players will run Greninja as a standard, hit-and-run attacker that can slot into either lane or a jungle role, though the latter probably isn’t optimal outside of solo queuing in standard games. With all of the options the Ninja Pokémon has at its disposal, you can shift your build to fit any style you like. 

To unlock the expert-level ranged Attacker, players can simply wait until they receive him as a free gift through the “14 Day Welcome” event, or, purchase the Greninja Unite License from the shop for a whopping 10,000 Aeos Coins or 575 Aeos Gems. 

So if you like playing a flexible attacker and want to pull off some sweet mixups, here is the best build you can default to for Greninja.

Held Items

Shell Bell

Greninja might be a physical attacker, but all of its moves come out very quickly and, with the Shell Bell, provide you a nice way to get some HP back by cleaning out some wild Pokémon or just landing a few hits on an opponent. 

You could swap this out pretty easily with another physical attack-boosting item or Leftovers if you don’t like the way the Shell Bell plays on your build. 

Float Stone

Similar to Pikachu, Greninja is already faster than most non-Speedster-type Pokémon, but the Float Stone just gives it another level when running around outside of combat. It is even better for the Water-type because it also gives an Attack boost too, making it a perfect option regardless of which position you play. 

Muscle Band

The tried and true Muscle Band is great for Greninja because it gives the player an attack boost and speeds up Basic Attacks while giving them a small boost based on the opposing Pokémon’s HP. Paired with the Shell Bell, this means your standard attacks will do more and generate health too. 

Battle Items

Eject Button

Since most players opt to use some offensive boosting Held Items, the Eject Button is the go-to Battle Item for Greninja. It gives players yet another burst of speed to escape from attackers, pursue enemies, or simply keep in their back pocket for some extra utility. 

If you don’t really care about having that extra option, you can always opt to use a Potion, X Attack, or X Speed depending on what you think fits your playstyle best. 

Moves

Level One: Bubble

The standard fair is present for Grenninja too. There is no reason to choose Substitute over Bubble at the start of a game because you will be getting it anyway and it won’t help you take out the wild Pokémon necessary to level up alongside your teammates when heading into the lane. 

Level Five: Surf

Greninja is one of several Pokémon in the game that doesn’t really have a bad option when it comes to their Special Moves. Surf is probably most player’s preferred method to get closer to opponents and burst them down, especially since its cooldown resets if you knock out a Pokémon with it. 

Water Shuriken is also solid, and both restore HP when they deal damage. 

Upgrade (Level 11): Increases the amount of HP restored.

Level 7: Smokescreen

Double Team has its uses but is more situational than Smokescreen because it is mostly a battle trick rather than a utility move. Smokescreen lets the player dash in any direction they want while throwing down smoke, becoming invisible for a short period, and giving the next Basic Attack thrown out after use a boost. 

This can lead to some sneaky scoring, great flanks, or as a way to escape from approaching enemies. 

Upgrade (Level 13): Increases Attack for a short period when the user stops sneaking. 

Level Nine: Waterburst Shuriken 

Compared to other offensive Unite Moves, Waterburst Shuriken is good, but nothing great unless you can line up a nice hit. This might be the biggest weakness in Greninja’s game, but paired with its other options, you can’t really complain about a potential teamfight finisher or initiator.
