Why eSports Should Be Taken Seriously
"League of Legends Tournament" by camknows is licensed under CC BY-NC-SA 2.0 eSports hopefuls in the UK will have better opportunities in the future because of the addition of gaming scholarships. The University of Roehampton London is offered the first eSports scholarship program in the country last year (2019). Ten scholarships will be given for this first year and each will shoulder £1,500 for a student on any course and level. The programme works like traditional sports scholarships in that those who want to enrol will have to demonstrate aptitude in the field. Why the need for such programmes? The rise
Our Time at EGX 2018
Once again we find ourselves at EGX. This year 3 members of the OP team went, and here are our thoughts:LEWISSo another year at EGX, and I still can't help but moan about the boring and uncreative art used at the entrance of EGX. A couple of shapes changed position and background patterns slightly changed up, but largely the same mundane and uninspiring signage. In no way does it get you excited for the event when you walk through what is essentially a large empty hall with nothing more than one large screen advertising a couple of the games at the
Our Time at EGX 2017
So here we are again, writing another article about another EGX event. Two members of the OP team went to EGX in 2017, and we have both individually written reviews of the event.Lewis When we arrived at the event, one of the first things that struck me was the lack of creativity in the art being used. I didn't feel hugely excited to be there, apart from the huge amount of people attending, I didn't feel like I was arriving at anything special. I remember in the early days of Eurogamer, I used to feel like I was attending something out of
The Magic of E3 vs Reality
Hello everyone and welcome back from the Electronic Entertainment Expo!Let's get to the topic right here!As usual we saw impressing showcases of games that make you wish your wallet was a bit bigger to buy them all. But what can we actually expect? What is going to be realised the way it was shown and what is going to be another fake that was just sugarcoated to show off. Well, as always we can not really know beforehand what is going to be exactly how we've seen it, but nevertheless, experience has shown that most likely nothing is going to be
Welcome back to the glorious times of Gamescom – 2017.As usual, Gamescom will return to Cologne this year once again and this time with a few (permanent)* changes.The date for the event changed to a firm date, as this wasn’t the case before.Luckily the beginning of Gamescom will be permanently held in the last week of August.The reasons for those decisions have been the exhibitors that complained about the organisation - it simply was too complicated to plan without a firm date. Therefore, we will have a certain date we all can aim for. Most of us won’t have a problem with
Well-written but a little self-indulgent and heavily focused on personal frustration and distaste for the game without actually telling us much about the title at all. I have no real clue what the game involves or what the objectives or goals are?
Glad you finally got the review out, but maybe focusing efforts on reviewing something you don't seemingly loathe intensely would have been a better call, as it's clearly had a negative impact on the overall delivery of this review.
Although it seems Pinky took something valuable from it, so who am I to argue with that?
Hope you're well.November 09, 2022
great review, very informative article now im curious if I would try this game. Of course with mid expectations but its still very colorful and prettyNovember 06, 2022
Blah blah blah ... What beautiful and completely unrelated to what happened here, the words.
Okay, I'm not from Russia. What do you say to the residents of Kazakhstan, Belarus and Ukraine, whose accounts were also banned?
And what do you say when Opium Pulses bans you? They really don't like to fulfill their obligations, you know. There is no user, there are no obligations... ¯\_(ツ)_/¯October 24, 2022
That is a disgusting word to use ,especially knowing what is happening to the Ukrainian people at the moment.
What happened here is the same thing that happened to trading cards on Steam and also the same problem that Alienware has suffered from in the past and is now suffering from again as bad actors have shifted over there on mass..
I wouldn't be surprised to hear it also played a part in other sites restructuring or completely closing down.
To try and blame the site owners for your criminality ,well ,no surprise there.......
The action taken to stop the constant targeted abuse of fun gaming giveaway sites like this does not in any way equate to "genocide" and to suggest so is just shameful and speaks volumes about how certain people's minds work.
We can only hope that one day soon russians will improve their standard of living (and thinking) and they won't feel the need to commit crimes and ruin what is a fun pastime of gamers around the world.October 17, 2022
Wow, sounds fantastic!October 10, 2022
your opinion is imposed by films and the government, in reality it's not at all like thatSeptember 26, 2022
Surprised by the incredibly measured and restrained policy of the site administration. It's incredibly difficult these days. However, trying to be liberal with a bandit nation is always a losing stance. Once again, I am convinced where the Russians are, there is fraud and theft.September 24, 2022
Russian users are like their government. If somewhere someone does something around the rules using hacking, deceit and abuse, then it is always Russians.
It is high time to close the entrance of this contingent of people to all the world's Internet sites.September 24, 2022
