VALORANT Yoru bug in Episode 6
When the sixth episode of VALORANT came out, players began complaining about a bug that affects entire lobbies when playing online matches.
Reports of Yoru's new bug started popping up on Reddit. When Yoru launches his Fakeout bait, the ability breaks.
Yoru’s clone slowly disintegrates, shining a blue light in a rectangular shape that passes through walls and illuminates the area around it. Apart from this, the bug also makes a weird noise that resembles a computer error sound before turning into what sounds like a scream.
Even though it's hard to release a new patch without bugs in any game, this bug affects the gameplay a lot. However, we believe that a quick fix is just around the corner.
Tyler1 criticizes Riot for recent League of Legend “Brink of Infinity” cinematic
Speaking of dissatisfaction, LoL fans also had a lot of it last week, especially the popular streamer Tyler1, who often criticizes Riot Games during his Twitch broadcasts.
With the “Brink of Infinity” cinematic in Season 13 being a disappointment to fans, Tyler1 couldn't believe that Riot did such a bad job.
Despite Tyler1's frequent criticism of Riot, his sentiments echoed those of the wider community, who also expressed dissatisfaction with the cinematic. In response to the influx of criticism, Riot Games released a statement on Twitter addressing "unprecedented circumstances" that had hindered their ability to produce a better video. The developer also sought to dispel rumors that they were no longer sufficiently funding or giving attention to the discipline.
S2G Esports wins PUBG Mobile Global Championship 2022
Let's shift our focus to more uplifting news like awards and victories.
S2G Esports became the champion of the PUBG Mobile Global Championship 2022. The team from Turkey earned $510,000 for winning the tournament. 18 rounds were played in the final stage of the competition with S2G earning a total of 190 points. 50 teams competed for a prize fund of $4 million. The tournament participants played on Sony Xperia 1 IV mobile devices.
HLTV Award results for 2022
Finishing up with the main award of the year in CS:GO - we discovered the game’s top 20 players according to HLTV.org.
S1mple was named Player of the Year for the third time in his career, becoming the only player in CS:GO history to do so. The top 5 also included ZywOo, sh1ro, Ax1Le and NiKo.
Despite s1mple's outstanding achievements, his performance metrics have decreased compared to the previous year. His rating dropped from 1.35 to 1.25, and his impact index also decreased from 1.42 to 1.32. Additionally, s1mple received 2 MVP tournament awards in 2022, IEM Cologne and the Blast Summer Finals, which is a lower number than the 8 awards he received in 2021. His closest rivals finished the year with similar statistics. In major tournaments, ZywOo’s rating was 1.24, while shiro's came at 1.25.
Congratulations to the winners! We look forward to other tournaments and even more competition among top players.
