Respawn confirmed a huge Loba bracelet buff for Season 9, and it’s something Loba fans have been asking for since her initial release in Apex Legends. Loba’s tactical ability, Burglar’s Best Friend, allows her to throw a bracelet and teleport to its location. Unfortunately, the mechanic has been plague with bugs for a long time now, and the High Society Thief hasn’t been playable to her full potential.

The problems to this point with Loba’s bracelet is that it either does not work, or it returns her to where the bracelet was launched from. Additionally, although part of the game, her movement is impaired while the bracelet is in the air. This leaves her to be a sitting target, or forced to use the ability early.

After the Apex Legends Legacy Gameplay trailer, the Apex Legends developers answered player questions in the game’s subreddit. One question included the nerf to Loba’s ultimate, increasing the recharge time from 90 to 120 seconds, and the challenges Loba already faces.

Lead Game Designer at Respawn replied this when asked about Loba’s changes: “We’re not just fixing it (bug fixing that is; there’s still the occasional bug with it, but anecdotally from my testing it went from maybe 3-4 out of every 10 attempts failing currently to maybe 1 in a 100) but we’re also buffing it: full movement speed while it’s in the air, no slow down when you arrive. Honestly patch notes can’t do it justice; you gotta feel it. I’m a Loba main on live and playtests are night and day.”

Loba is a fan favorite Legend, and it looks like she’s finally receiving the love needed to make her a higher tier character.

s1mple was named the Most Valuable Player of DreamHack Masters Spring on Sunday following Natus Vincere‘s title-winning campaign at the event, where the CIS team took down regional rivals Gambit in a convincing three-map affair in the grand final and secured their second trophy of the year.

In celebration of the Ukrainian superstar’s incredible performance, which saw s1mple put up godlike numbers such as a 1.41 average rating, 0.91 kills per round, and a 1.52 impact rating, Filip “filq” Szatkowski has put together the best individual plays from the tournament’s MVP:

TiMi Studios partners with Xbox Game Studios to bring a “new game sensory experience” to players

TiMi Studios has formed a strategic partnership with Xbox Game Studios, the company revealed today

The Tencent-owned video game developer, which’s known for some of the world’s most popular mobile games, including Honor of Kings, Call of Duty Mobile, and Arena of Valor is broadening its horizons.

In what TiMi describes as a “strategic partnership” with Xbox Game Studios, the two companies will combine their efforts to “carry out in-depth cooperation.” The details of this new partnership are sparse, but it appears to revolve around a new game experience.

TiMi will conduct “multi-dimensional and in-depth communication” with Xbox to create “excellent game content” and bring a “new game sensory experience” to players. This will roll out within the year, according to the company.

At this early stage of development, it’s difficult to say for certain what the partnership will entail, but new TiMi-made games with the Xbox IP could be in the cards. A Halo mobile game is just one of many possibilities. 

On the other hand, one or more of TiMi’s already established mobile games could be making their way to the Xbox platform.

TiMi has expanded in the last year and now has over 3,000 employees working across Shenzhen, Chengdu, and Shanghai, China, as well as Los Angeles and Seattle in the U.S. 

The company is currently working on Pokémon UNITE—a free-to-play, multiplayer online battle arena game—with The Pokémon Company.

Target suspends physical Pokemon Card sales due to ‘inapropriate customer behavior’

Target stores around the US are reportedly set to suspend their sales of Pokémon cards due to the behavior of customers seeking out these highly demanded products.

In some stores around the country, shoppers shared images of signs explaining that the product will no longer be sold within the store, citing the reason as “to ensure the safety of our guests and team members.” MLB, NBA, and NFL cards were also included in the listing.

Since the pandemic hit, Pokémon TCG has seen a huge increase in popularity. This added interest has also brought about a shortage of cards, boosting the frequency of scalpers.

In some cases, stores have imposed restrictions on the number of card packs that individual buyers can purchase. Other examples have seen the product removed from shelves, instead being kept behind a desk or glass cabinet, so buyers are not able to handle the stock themselves.

One motivator for Target to make the decision to suspend their sale of trading cards may have been the recent physical altercation that ended with a weapon drawn in Brookfield, Wisconsin. While this wasn’t a dispute over Pokémon cards, Target has suspended their sales of all trading cards.

Target confirmed that they had chosen to suspend in-store sales of Pokémon, MLB, NFL, and NBA cards starting from May 14, according to a report by Comicbook.com. Those who still want to get their cards from Target can purchase their goods from the Target.com website.

The shortage of cards has not just plagued American buyers. Earlier this week, Creatures, the Japanese producer of Pokémon cards shared that because they coould not meet customer demand, with sales for their latest card sets only available through a lottery system on the Pokémon Center website.

XQc, Sykunno, Blaustoise, Buddha successfully rob all banks on NoPixel GTA RP back-to-back

Avatar

Published

A group of streamers on the GTA V RP server NoPixel 3.0 pulled off an incredible feat, successfully robbing all three banks in the server one after another.

The crew, calling themselves Team Rocket in a throwback to Rust RP, consisting of xQc, Sykunno, Blaustoise, and Buddha drew up a plan with ways to infiltrate all the vaults. This plan not only included ways of breaching the locations, but also extremely thorough ways to escape the inevitable police chase.

Calling the string of robberies Rainbow Road in a cheeky reference to one of the hardest routes in the Mario Kart‘s series, planning and completing this monster task took the streamers around five hours.  

During this time, they worked themselves around the map to each vault, flitting in and out of high-speed police chases in both land and air. With all the stars aligning this crime spree was successful and the team managed to get away unscathed with their ill-earned loot in hand.

This string of heists might be the most large-scale crime on the server so far and it was almost all over until the actions of one officer.

When inside one of the vaults, officers were preparing to open fire upon Team Rocket which would have certainly caused the end of the mission. An officer played by Five0Anth0 ultimately gave the call not to open fire upon them, stating that to that point they had not harmed anybody or fired any shots.

After Team Rocket completed a major objective like Rainbow Road, fans will wonder if the crew will stay together for another heist, or hang up their thieving gloves after raking in a fortune.

You can check out a full VOD of the stream here.
