Sources: LEC teams won’t be required to have an academy team in 2022

LEC teams recently voted against the rule that obligated them to have an academy team in the European Regional League (ERL) system, according to sources close to Dot Esports. This vote was made during an owners meeting and had nine votes in favor of removing the rule and only one against it.

This is something that the LEC teams have been asking about for a while now, but 2022 will be the year in which this mandatory rule will be applied. This change doesn’t mean that the academy leagues will disappear, though, since most professional European League of Legends teams are expected to continue to have an affiliate squad in the ERLs.

This isn’t the only change that the academy system will undergo, however. A limit of two LEC academy teams for each regional league has also been approved, sources say. This is something that would especially influence LEC teams looking to move their academy squad from one league to another since Spain, Nordics, Germany, and France already have the quota of two teams covered.

We still don’t know which franchises will keep their academy squads for next year since this decision was made less than a week ago. Each organization is in the process of evaluating its strategy for next January, which is when these changes will go into effect.

Blizzard has announced it will be lowering its price for character cloning ahead of the WoW: Classic-era Burning Crusade release.

Character cloning is meant to give players a chance to enjoy their beloved characters in all manner of realms throughout the re-release of certain expansions. For example, a player can choose to either port their character to a Burning Crusade (BC) realm exclusively or clone the character so they remain in their Vanilla realm while a copy is ported to a BC realm.

In a post on the official World of Warcraft forums published on Thursday, May 13, Community Manager Kaivax announced that Blizzard would be lowering its price to clone characters for Classic realms running patches 1.3 and 2.5 from around $35 USD to only $17 USD.

According to Kaivax, this decisions comes after receiving, “a very large amount of feedback from the [WoW] community.”

“We want players who choose Classic Era realms to feel as though their choice comes with the possibility that they’ll be able to build relationships and guilds with other players they can count on,” they wrote, adding, “A lower price will likely still accomplish our goals.”

Players will see the new price reflected within the next week.

Apex Legends Pro Reveals Flatline Recoil Trick

Trenton “Lou” Clements, Apex Legends pro player and Twitch streamer, has come forward to share his trick to dampen recoil with the Flatline rifle.

Most players know by now that Flatline can pack quite a punch for both the player and their opponent—and with good reason. Every action has an equal and opposite reaction, so they say. Therefore, it makes sense that heavy weaponry which hits hard will buck back just as bad.

However, using Lou’s trick may just take care of that side effect for good.

During a stream broadcasted on May 10, Lou explained that the way he is able to achieve near-perfect accuracy with a weapon like Flatline is all about the counter-motion he makes. Specifically, when firing, Lou runs tiny circles with his mouse, effectively countering the recoil effect.

Audience members were stunned by this revelation and rushed off to try it for themselves. One player, Reddit user kono_dio_da351, posted their experience on the ApexUniversity subreddit dedicated to helping players hone their skills. In their post, they attached a clip showcasing footage of the results at the shooting range. Sure enough, in the clip, kono_dio_da351 was able to keep the crosshair on-target without fail.

“i cant believe it works soooo well,” they wrote.

The comments were split between praising the trick and grieving over those who play on console or with a traditional controller.

User International-Crab-9 wrote, “Lol RIP us console players.”

“And my dumbass purposely took 3 hours to learn the pattern csgo style,” Witty-Gold-2742 replied.

Stonehearthed commented, “I was trying to draw a lightning bolt like a noob. This is much easier. Thanks to Lou and you.”

No doubt this will be the new popular strategy on the battlefield from now on. Players had best begin researching the best foils to Flatline and other similar high-recoil weapons.

New Pokemon Snap’s Best Frenemies quest involves Pinsir, Heracross, and Sylveon. Utilize your Fluffruit and Illumina Orbs in order to capture a four star photo of these Pokemon.

Travel to Florio Park at night to begin this quest. One you have reached Research level 2 and are strolling along the path, you will eventually encounter Pinsir, which is sticking its horns from the ground. There should be a Crystabloom beside Pinsir’s horns.

Press Y in order to throw Illumina Orbs at Pinsir and begin scanning the area by pressing X. While scanning the area, a Heracross will fall down from a tree and land beside Pinsir. Continue to throw Illumina Orbs at Pinsir until it rises from the ground. After Pinsir and Heracross are interacting with each other, throw Fluffruit at Pinsir in order to aggravate it and allow it to focus on Heracross.

As players proceed further down the trail, Heracross and Pinsir will soon enter the screen again, battling each other. There will also be a Sylveon asleep on the side and players should wake this Pokemon up by throwing Illumina Orbs at it.

After Sylveon wakes up, you should then activate your Melody towards Heracross and Pinsir. The Melody will then prompt Sylveon to approach the battling Pokemon and salvage the situation by encouraging them to laugh.

While these Pokemon are laughing, you should zoom in on Pinsir by pressing ZL and capture the moment. Sylveon and Heracross must be in the frame of the photo. Once you have taken a few photos, you should send the best one to Professor Mirror in order to receive a star rating.

Spirit beat Gambit in EPIC League CIS

Spirit have ended their four-series loss streak against Gambit with a 2-0 victory in EPIC League CIS, marking the second upset of this round of the Swiss stage after Entropiq defeated Natus Vincere on Sunday.

The chopper-led squad picked up wins on Mirage (16-5) and Dust2 (16-14) to put themselves at a 2-0 record in the Swiss stage, and now need just a single series win to secure a playoff berth, while Gambit will need to dust themselves off and regroup for their next matchup.

There were no weak links for Spirit in this contest

Gambit came out on their map pick of Mirage brightly by earning a 3-0 start on the Terrorist side, but Vladislav “⁠nafany⁠” Gorshkov & co. fell flat as Spirit took control of proceedings. In the final stages of the half, Abay “⁠Hobbit⁠” Khasenov ran into connection issues as “electricity went off and he had to switch to another location”, leaving his team with four players momentarily. As play resumed with all players back in the server, Spirit continued where they left off and briskly wrapped up the map 16-5.

Spirit carried over their momentum into Dust2, where they secured five consecutive rounds off the bat. Gambit eventually found their footing, but their opponents held out for a one-round lead at the midway point. The second half was a back-and-forth between the two teams as neither side could gain a substantial advantage over the other, with a Boris “⁠magixx⁠” Vorobiev 1v2 clutch being the deciding factor in the 30-round affair.

Virtus.pro vs. TRIDENT is the final match to take place before the start of the third round of matches in the Swiss group, which will see the first set of teams eliminated and the first batch advance to the playoffs.
