The difference-makers: The best junglers at Worlds 2021

Published

on

Over the last few years, the jungle position in professional League of Legends has become one of the most important roles on a team. Whether you’re playing at the highest level or playing a solo queue game, a good jungler can mean the difference between an easy win and a grueling loss due to their control over the pace of the game.

Junglers are the catalysts for their team’s early game, help activate some star players through ganks, and serve as the overall engine for a competitive squad. But at this year’s World Championship, every jungler at the tournament will need to elevate themselves to new heights to lift their own squad into the upper echelon of the game’s greats.

Here are the best junglers heading into the 2021 World Championship.

The Korean superstar has been one of the best players in the ever since he and the rest of DWG KIA exploded onto the international League scene. He was one of the best performing junglers during the 2021 LCK Summer Split, with the second-highest average damage to champions per minute and the fourth-most kills in his role, according to League stats site Oracle’s Elixir.

His almost-telepathic connection to the team’s mid lane phenom ShowMaker make them one of the best duos in League history, which has led to the team’s utter dominance over Korea through the past year and a half. The 20-year-old has a champion ocean as usual, boasting 15 unique picks played over the course of the summer.

If DWG KIA are victorious, you can bet on them having a true jungle canyon to work with in many of their matches.

As another former member of the “what-if” Griffin superteam, Tarzan hasn’t received as much focus from mainstream media compared to some of his other teammates. This is partially because LNG Esports—the team he joined at the start of 2021—hasn’t been able to build a great roster around him just yet, and as a result, they’ve been a middling squad in the LPL.

But the 22-year-old star has still been able to keep a high enough form to help his team capture China’s final spot at Worlds 2021. He had the third-highest KDA of any LPL jungler in the summer and has shown elite play during the final series against Team WE in the 2021 LPL Regional Finals, where he collected 18 kills, 32 assists, and only two deaths through four games.

In an interview with Ashley Kang, the talented star said he has “become as good as he was before, or even better,” and that his “eyes for the game” have come back. If we’re truly getting a motivated, evolved Tarzan, the rest of the competition better not underestimate the storm he’ll be bringing next month.

If Doinb is the mad scientist in the mid lane, Tian is the facilitator that gets the whole team going from the shadows of the jungle. The 21-year-old jungler is looking to win himself another Summoner’s Cup after stumbling in 2020, showing that last year was simply an off-year to this team’s brilliance.

Tian is always looking to help set up a play across the map, whether he’s comboing with his superstar mid laner, running through the top side with Nuguri, or setting up an attack on the bottom side with Lwx and Crisp. He’s proactive and has a great champion pool that ranges from picks like Viego, Lee Sin, Diana, Olaf, and Xin Zhao.

In a similar vein, Wei has also been the playmaker for Royal Never Give Up on the team’s path to Worlds, and he’s only 18 years old. He might not have as diverse a champion pool as the other players at the top of the list, but he has shown he can make an impact so the rest of his high-powered team can succeed.

Through the summer, his most-played champions were Lee Sin, Olaf, and Xin Zhao; 22 of his games were played on one of these three picks. This could be a bit of a problem if an enemy team pinches his champion pool, but there are far more scarier players to focus on this team. As a result, he should be able to get one of his preferred picks, which should allow him to thrive alongside the rest of his teammates.

Inspired

When you think of Rogue and their successes, most LEC fans know that without the play of Inspired, this team wouldn’t be nearly as good as they were this past year. The 2021 LEC Summer MVP was the engine of this roster this past split; whenever Inspired had a good game, there was a good chance the rest of the team would follow.

The talented young star had the best early-game stats of any EU jungler this past season and the sixth-highest KDA in the league, according to Oracle’s Elixir. He has been impressive individually and has some great mechanics, but the only problem that he has is when he and his team are forced to play together into the mid-to-late game. Rogue simply doesn’t play like the sum of their parts, and their macro play just hasn’t looked great so far. It’ll be interesting to see if their powerful solo players can perform like a single unit when the tournament begins.

You can catch all of these players and the rest of League‘s best when the 2021 World Championship begins on Oct. 5.

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.
