Psyonix announced Wednesday the Rocket League Championship Series 2021-2022 season will include the game’s largest prize pool ever, new regions, and an updated format when it kicks off Oct. 15.

The Asia-Pacific North, Asia-Pacific South and Middle East & North Africa regions will compete in the RLCS for the first time in the esport’s history, offering dozens of new countries the opportunity to play for the $6 million prize pool. And, although Sub-Saharan Africa won’t be a full participant in the RLCS, the two best-performing teams from the region will have two guaranteed slots at the Rocket League World Championship Wildcard.

The expansion also brings format standardization to all the regions competing in the RLCS. The season will still be divided into Fall, Winter and Spring Splits culminating in the Rocket League World Championship. Each Split will include three Regional events, each of which features 16 teams, begins with an Open Qualifier, and ends with a Major. But the individual splits will each have their own formats.

Up first, the Fall Split will use a Swiss format that feeds into an eight-team, single-elimination bracket. Next, the Winter Split will feature a Group Stage with four groups, the results of which will determine the seeding for a double-elimination bracket. Finally, the Spring Split will use a classic double-elimination format.

Teams can auto-qualify for Regional Events based on their performance in the previous Regional Event, but the first event requires all teams to play in the Open Qualifier.

At each event over the course of the season, teams will earn points that ultimately decide who qualifies for the Rocket League World Championship.

That capstone event has seen some changes, too. It will now have two main stages: the World Championship Wildcard and the World Championship Main Event. Eight teams will automatically qualify to the main event based on their performances at Majors, with the best regions in the top eight of Major points weighted against each other to see which earns the most auto-qualified slots to the Main Event. The Main Event will feature four double-elimination groups that feed into a single-elimination bracket.

Meanwhile, 16 teams will qualify for the World Championship Wildcard according to the follow scheme:

Those teams will play a Swiss format, and the top eight teams will then qualify for the Main Event.

The Fall Major will see the return of LAN events, but will have no crowd presence and will implement what Psyonix describes as “stringent health precautions.” Crowds will remain absent from competition until at least 2022.

New World team share details of upcoming server transfers in Q&A

Published

on

New World players have been eagerly awaiting news on the promised server transfers that Amazon Game Studios announced to remedy long server queues on launch. While they have been delayed, many questions were answered regarding the subject during a Q&A on the New World forum earlier today.

The Q&A took the most popular questions from the community regarding the server transfer service and provided some insight into its limitations, what players can expect, but sadly, no official date for it to join the game.

When server transfers are added to the game, all players will receive a single transfer token that is tied to the account, not character. This means that if you have multiple characters, you’ll only be able to transfer one. These tokens will be permanent so they can be used any time after distribution.

Amazon also confirmed that players will only be able to transfer between servers in the same region, but cross-region transfers are something the team is looking into for the future.

Something that players were worried about was not being able to transfer into servers that are currently marked ‘full,’ but the team attempted to ease fears of this by sharing that many servers will have the ‘full’ tag removed over the coming days.

“We monitor full status on a daily basis with changes as recently as today,” the spokesperson wrote. “’Full’ doesn’t indicate a server that always has queues, it indicates a server that during typical peak usage has a substantial queue. We will be relaxing Full status on many worlds when transfers start, to allow the most flexibility possible. After transfers have slowed down we will re-evaluate which worlds might still need the designation.”

If server transfers overwork a server, the team said they will re-evaluate and hand out new transfer tokens to players where necessary.

There were plenty of other questions answered so if you’d like to know what was said in detail you can check out the Q&A here.

NoPing releases its Dota 2 roster, will reform for next DPC season

Published

on

NoPing e-sports and its Dota 2 rosters have agreed to part ways ahead of the next Dota Pro Circuit season. In a statement, NoPing said it will be fielding a new roster for the next season, but the organization has no news to share at the moment. 

This is the second top-level South American roster to split with its sponsor organization in order to pursue other opportunities, following Thunder Predator doing the same following The International 10. 

“By decision of all players in the team, we will not continue with the current lineup,” NoPing said. “We respect the decision and wish success to the players that took the NoPing VPN name to various achievements in Dota 2.” 

Neither NoPing nor the players—William “hFn” Medeiros, Gonzalo “Darkmago” Herrera, Oscar Chavez, Farith “Matthew” Puente, and Jose “Panda” Padilla Hernandez—specified why the decision was made, but it is likely due to the team failing to qualify for TI10. Even though they were one of three teams from SA to make it to a Major, finishing ninth at the WePlay AniMajor, they flamed out in the regional qualifiers, losing to Infinity and Team Unknown.

It is also unclear if the players wish to continue playing together or if they will disband entirely and look to find teams elsewhere rather than pursuing a new sponsor together. Here are the players that are now looking for a new home. 

With this announcement, only beastcoast and SG esports remain untouched among the top four teams in SA, meaning they have an edge heading into the next DPC season if their squads remain together. The ex-TP players did note that they would continue playing together, so even if they don’t find a new sponsor they will likely still be a force in the region.

Call of Duty: Mobile season 9 is called Nightmare

Published

on

Call of Duty: Mobile’s season nine is almost here. The new season will be called Nightmare, Activision revealed today, as Halloween is right around the corner.

As usual, a lot of new content is dropping with the season. This includes a Battle Pass (BP) which contains a new operator, weapon, blueprints, calling cards, charms, and more.

At tier 14 of the free BP, players will be able to get the Tak-5 Operator Skill. This skill gives players the ability to heal their team in battle. Besides this, players will be able to get the Swordfish at tier 21. This tactical rifle was first seen in Black Ops 4 and is now making its way to CoD: Mobile as well.

Modern Warfare’s Havoc Sawmill will be the new map for season nine. Additionally, the Halloween Standoff is returning to the game for a limited time as well to mark the festival.

Later in the season, players will also be able to unlock a new weapon, tactical equipment, and battle royale class through seasonal challenges. The weapon is called Thumper, which is a grenade launcher with just one ammunition. Flash Drone is the new tactical equipment that blinds enemies. Finally, the Pumped BR Class gives players a jetpack to take to the skies.

The season will last for about a month. The new content will be available gradually throughout season nine, Nightmare.
