Brazilian esports organisation E-Flix eSports announced that its licensing contract with Cruzeiro Esporte Clube, one of the main football clubs in Brazil, has been terminated.

A Cruzeiro spokesperson said: “Before the decision, E-Flix did not express any type of dissatisfaction, and regrets that the company – which gained national prominence with the gamer community and participation in championships after allying itself with the gigantic brand Cruzeiro – took such an attitude at the most successful moment of the project, abandoning a partnership always guided by objective good faith.”

Cruzeiro eSports was competing in the Brazilian League Of Legends Championship (CBLOL) and Free Fire League (LBFF). E-Flix will remain in the competitions without Cruzeiro’s branding.

How to Fix COD Mobile’s Authorization error on Android

Avatar

Published

on

– Advertisement –

Call of Duty: Mobile is quite often plagued with issues and bugs despite being out of Beta for quite a while, the authorization error (code 5,1401,1200) is a commonly occurring and pesky issue that is even acknowledged by the developers themselves and could be due to multiple reasons such as:

  • Server issues.
  • Incorrect login details.
  • Using an older version of the game.
  • Using a banned account.
  • Unstable internet 
  • Try Clearing the game’s cache files:

Going to your settings > app info and clearing cache & storage data will wipe all your login credentials as well as locally stored maps, skins, etc.

  • Check your internet connection: An unstable connection could be preventing you from logging into the game, restarting your router can fix this issue. If you’re on WiFi, try forwarding your ports in your Router’s settings to

TCP 10012, 65010, 65050 

UDP 7500, 7774, 20002

  • Reinstall/ Update the game: If the previous two options fail, you can always re-download COD: Mobile from the Play Store on your device or check for any pending updates by going to “My Apps & Games” in the Play Store.
  • Use a VPN: Sometimes using a VPN might fix the issue as it lets you switch to a different server or region depending on the location you’re connected to. While any Free VPN should do the trick, we’d recommend using a premium VPN such as Nord, Proton, ExpressVPN, or Private Internet Access as their servers offer better speeds and lower latency in comparison. Be sure to connect to a region that’s the closest to your location for a stable experience.

Dota 2 Update 7.29 Introduces new hero “Dawnbreaker”

Avatar

Published

– Advertisement –

Dota 2’s major update just landed on Steam which is sized at about 500MB. This update adds a new hero to the already wide-ranging list of 120 Heroes after Hoodwink was introduced (now 121 after update 7.29). 

Dawnbreaker is a tank carry and melee-type hero that has the ability to heal her allies.

Here’s an introduction on Dota 2’s official blog:

  • Dawnbreaker shines in the heart of battle, happily crushing enemies with her celestial hammer and using the energy released to heal nearby allies. At one with the mass of her weapon, she revels in hurling her hammer through multiple foes and then converging with it in a blazing wake. Created to rival ancient forces of chaos and darkness by descendants of the first light, Dawnbreaker only taps her true cosmic power to fly to the aid of her teammates — eager to rout her enemies on the battlefield no matter where they may be.

She possesses a total of four abilities with one of them being a passive ability, her abilities are as follows:

  • Starbreaker: A point target ability where “Dawnbreaker whirls her hammer around 3 times, damaging enemies with her attack plus bonus damage. On the final strike, she smashes her hammer down, stunning and damaging enemies in front of her.”
  • Celestial Hammer: Another point target ability, “Dawnbreaker hurls her weapon at a target, damaging enemies struck along the way. The hammer pauses for 2.0 seconds at the destination before flying back to her, leaving a trail of fire that slows enemies. Dawnbreaker can recall the hammer at any time, pulling her towards it so they meet in the middle.”
  • Luminosity: A passive ability, where Dawnbreaker charges up after 3 attacks which charge “her next attack with a critical hit that heals all allied heroes within 650 units around her for a portion of attack damage dealt. Creeps and neutral enemies provide less healing. Allies are healed for 35% of the amount.” This ability can pierce spell immunity.
  • Solar Guardian: This is her ultimate ability, “Dawnbreaker creates a pulsing effect at a location within 350 units of an allied hero anywhere on the map, damaging enemies and healing allies with each pulse. After a short duration, she flies to the target location, dealing additional damage and stunning enemies upon landing. Once channeled, Dawnbreaker cannot stop the ability.”

Patch 7.29 also features a redesigned terrain which changes the placement of power and bounty runes, outposts, ward cliffs, and general foliage. All Tier 1 and Tier 2 areas have considerable changes in this newer version.

Items such as Necronomicon and Royal Jelly have been removed, while Abyssal Blade no longer has a blink effect and the current line-up of heroes have gone through changes as well and one of the most notable differences in this update is that Crystal Maiden can now move freely during her ultimate “Freezing Field” ability, provided you have purchased a shard upgrade.

You can read the ginormous list of patch notes here to learn more. For more Dota 2 updates, keep following TalkEsport.
