You can’t score! – worst FIFA present idea

We take you now to FIFA 15, where a player is clearly about to score … doh!, but he gets the rebound and DOH!

Throws game out widow. It’s probably too late to exchange it now, but watch the clip below and lament your choice of this for a Christmas present.

Team of the Season in FIFA 15

FIFA 15 coins

During one month, between May and June, EA Sports selects the best players of the season for each of the main leagues and releases them in several teams named Teams of the Season. Alongside the TOTY, this is the moment responsible for the biggest price falls in the game.So,don’t miss this time.

Although it seems like there are similarities between the TOTY and the TOTS, they’re not that similar and for that their effect on the market is also distinct. Firstly, the TOTS is responsible for the release of many more blue cards but none of them are in the same level as TOTY, and for that reason their price is always lower. The remaining cards’ prices are lower during TOTS because it’s closer to the end of the game, and as you’ve already seem cards tend to devaluate with time. The biggest difference between them is about duration. While the TOTY only goes for a week, the TOTS keeps going for several weeks and that contributes for bigger windows of opportunities. Instead of selling all your cards and then buying them again, you can take advantage of the price fluctuations along the TOTS weeks in order for you to get rich.The release of TOTS represents the following effect on the market:

Stage 1 – Before the TOTS release

The players’ prices fall a few weeks before the release of the TOTS. Anticipating themselves for this moment, many people sell their player. They know their cards will be worth less on the following weeks and many also need coins to invest in packs. The closer it is to the TOTS release, the lower prices will be. Until you reach stage 2 you might not notice very big price falls but it’s always a good idea to sell your cards the earlier possible if your plan is to take advantage of the TOTS to get some FIFA 15 coins. The consumables’ prices remain practically unchanged in this stage since players need them for their squad and probably won’t sell them.

Stage 2 – First TOTS release day

Once the first three TOTS are released a very big price fall is noticed. They’ll hit their historic minimum. Many players have sold everything they had and are in this stage spending all their coins on packs. And just like the most basic law of economics says: when the supply exceeds the demand, prices fall; when the demand exceeds the supply, prices rise. In this case the market becomes saturated with players, staff, consumables and club items. That means prices are very low. And it remains this way because players keep on buying packs until the last TOTS.

Stage 3 – TOTS weeks

Many players store coins to spend on packs during the best TOTS. Prices remain low until the very end of this stage because players are permanently opening packs.

Stage 4 – Period post-TOTS

As you’d imagine, many players want their squads back. According to the same laws of the market we mentioned above, prices rise in this stage. However, they don’t go back to where they were before the first stage. Most cards end up stabilizing at a slightly lower price.

At a macroscopic scale you noticed what happens. But what about all the way through the TOTS? It’s important to analyse the tendencies during these weeks in order for you to be able to buy cheap and sell expensive during this period. The first thing you need to know is that the day of the first TOTS release is probably the one in which prices hit a historic minimum. From now on prices are particularly low through the weeks of the Barclays PL TOTS release as well as the Bundesliga, BBVA and EAS FC ones, but they don’t fall enough to reach the values of the first day. For one TOTS, the cards’ prices vary along the week, increasing/decreasing more than 20%. Normally they’re lower on the first days and higher on the last days. Monday and Tuesday, for example, are good days for selling.

In the second quarter, EA released several innovative games and services through the mobile, PC and console platforms. Madden NFL 15 was released in August and was accepted significantly becoming the highest successful Madden titles in coming years amid critics and players. Till date, players have played above 89 million Madden games, an increase of 48% on year-over-year basis. EA launched NHL 15 and Sims 4 in September and since then has released several key content updates for players in both these games with enhanced features and varied gaming modes.

After this release, its next Battlefield experience is forecasted to be launched in third quarter of FY17.

In the subsequent holiday, EA plans to launch a fresh hit, Star Wars Battlefront, from its DICE Studio in third quarter of FY ’16.

Conclusion

Thus, EA looks like a good bet for the long run. So, investors should definitely consider investing in this stock.

Confessions of a Destiny the Player: Why I’m leaving Destiny

destiny

Seeing the direction the game has taken in the last few weeks, I’ve decided it’s time to move on. The Polygon and Kotaku articles capture a lot of what I’ve been feeling but there’s more to why I’m leaving and seeing friends do the same:destiny

1. The more dedicated you are, the more you get screwed

The Polygon article’s money quote is spot on:

“The system actually punishes players proportionately to their dedication to the game, and it’s the stupidest thing I’ve ever seen a major game developer do to its community.”

If you ran the raid 20+ times like I did and finally got level 30 gear, you saw it immediately obsoleted by level 31 vendor gear that required no skill to get. You could grind simple bounties or lose dozens of Crucible matches to buy better gear than you earn by mastering the Vault. A slap in the face.

If you grinded to max five exotic weapons, you saw that work erased by the new upgrade system. (And yes, if you wanted your exotics to matter, upgrading again was necessary.)

People who say obsoleted gear is a feature of MMOs like WoW are mistaken. When WoW releases new content – in large expansions on 12-18 month cycles – they make the previous top-tier gear important for getting the new top-tier gear. You’re earning the ability to beat the next adventure.

 You don’t need any of the level 30 armor or weapons to reach 31 – they’re actually a detriment because you could have saved your upgrade materials for 31 gear. Casuals get a nearly free ticket and dedicated players see their work washed away within weeks. 

DeeJ wrote, “Your feedback is clear: The time you have invested in your stuff should be respected.” I no longer trust Bungie will do that.

2. There’s too little payoff

When I finally, finally hit 30 on my warlock, here’s what happened: my light number ticked from 29 to 30. No dramatic visuals, no cutscenes, no public announcement or rewards. I danced with myself in the Tower for 20 seconds and that was that. 

It was a microcosm of a larger problem. Because your hard-earned gear and weapons are quickly obsoleted, there’s no meaningful period to enjoy your work. There’s little time to feel like a rockstar or to help lower-level guardians who can level nearly as fast solo. Destiny wants you to be a legend but I think it makes you feel ordinary. 

Raid exploits made this worse. Have a Vex Mythoclast? You’re either a Vault of Glass badass ora Joey who watched some warlock cheese Atheon off a ledge. There’s no way to distinguish.

We’re seeing the same with Crota’s End. In a raid intended for top-level six-man teams, you can solo the maze and easily cheese both the bridge and Crota. You get no rewards for killing a level 32 deathsinger boss but can get an exotic within ten seconds of starting the raid after killing zero adds. What? 

3. Just too much repetition

Any prolonged challenge requires some degree of repetition, whether it’s practice or grinding. I’m up for that. But there’s a line where repetition becomes tedium. For me, Destiny has crossed that line.

The DLC was a chance to introduce meaningful new missions, new enemies, new game mechanics, new storylines. The raid was fun the first times through but Omnigul is just another high-level wizard. The might/hand/eyes/gums of Crota are all enemies we’ve killed hundreds of times over. There’s no personality to them, no backstory. They’re not the Elusive Man or Flood or GLaDOS. They’re just angry pixels.

When the community complained about the farming of materials for hours on end, Bungie let materials be bought at a loose rate… and introduced four new scarce currencies and made glimmer much more expensive. It feels like a shell game.


A repetitive game that obsoletes your repetitive efforts within weeks is a recipe for disillusionment. Look at Reddit and these forums. One week after seeing their raid gear become useless and seeing weeks of the same cycle ahead, more players than usual are saying enough is enough. Among those staying, more than a few say they love and hate the game simultaneously. It’s what drug addicts say. 

We have to understand the mood of the players. Do you want to becomemore powerful? Click here to view more latest Destiny’s Dark Below news and Guide. You can buy destiny power leveling with cheapest price by destiny-store coupon: destiny.

Destiny: New Models, New Stories, To Join Us

destiny

Destiny recently updated its new version, there are a lot of new changes in the new version, let us take a look at it.

Destiny’s first expansion, The Dark Below, drops on Dec. 9 and contains three new story missions, two new Strikes (one, “The Undying Mind,” exclusive to PlayStation 4 for now), and one new Raid, “Crota’s End.” In the Raid, the player takes to the Moon and enters the Hellmouth to stop the Hive from summoning the dark god Crota. The expansion also introduces three new Crucible maps: Skyshock, the Cauldron, and Pantheon, and raises your maximum Light Level to 32. In the new version you want to quickly upgrade? You can choose us Destiny Power Leveling

You’ve probably already heard of Crota if you played through all of the launch content. The Sword of Crota appeared in the eponymous story mission on the Moon. The sword was said to be corrupted, since it was used to kill so many Guardians when Crota first tried to drive humans off the Moon, but the player character could use it well enough to slay the Hive guarding it.

That might just sound like a lot of capitalized words to you. Destiny’s story is sparse, with lore sprinkled throughout the game and the browser-based Grimoire app. Bungie knows that players want more story and so have also introduced Quests, which seem to repackage old content such as Bounties in a more captivating way. But another type of Bounty might not be enough. Hopefully, gateway character Eris Morn introduces some more emotion into the story.

destiny

Meet Eris and Crota in this trailer:
A bit of recap…

In the story so far, the player awakes to find him or herself on an abandoned road on Earth. The Guardian’s AI companion (Peter Dinklage) explains that you were once a warrior who died, and has now been reborn into the society of Guardians. The Guardians live in the massive Tower in the last city on Earth. They come from one of three species – tough humans, mystical Awoken, and mechanical Exos – and are generally seen as a force for good by the remaining civilians.

Armed with the power-boosting Light and lots and lots of guns, Guardians serve as a mixture of vigilantes and soldiers, protecting the solar system from four malevolent alien races – the Fallen, the Hive, the Cabal, and the Vex. Both the AI, called Ghosts, and the Guardians receive power from the Traveler, a floating edifice that appeared on Mars.

The Traveler both destroyed and created a Golden Age of technology and space travel for humanity, but it was being hunted by a mysterious entity known as the Darkness, and when the Darkness attacked the Traveler, it retreated to the Earth and fought the Darkness off. After that fight, though, humanity was weakened and the Earth scarcely populated. Except for the Ghosts, which continue to revive Guardians, it is silent. The Speaker, who gives the Guardians their most important missions, senses this. The Traveler is either healing or dying.

Some fans speculate that the Traveler was originally designed as a malevolent entity, and its Guardians unknowing pawns. This story might have been scrapped in development, or just meant as a secret that hasn’t yet been revealed. Some of the lore even suggests there’s more to the Traveler than the little that meets the eye: “The chase leads you where you need to be, you believe. Unless…you are being pushed.”

Another bastion of power is the Reef, where separatist Awoken live under the leadership of the prickly Queen of the Reef. Although we haven’t learned much about the Queen, she pops in and out of the story to give us new objectives. Mostly, she uses us to her advantage.

Beyond that, the story is thin. The player is lead from battlefield to battlefield by the mysterious Exo Stranger, a warrior without a Ghost. You must complete each mission and defeat several enemy strongholds in order to revive The Traveler by…well, we’re not really sure. The story falls a bit short in logic and the missions don’t seem to have much of a connecting thread except that you’re in all of them.

destiny

Perhaps this will help (maybe):
The culmination of the player’s story is the Black Garden, a strange, Vex-made labyrinth of right angles located on Mars. There the player destroys the heart of the Garden, decreasing the Darkness. In the Vault of Glass, a team of six Guardians faces the Templar, a devious Vex.

So by the time the player reaches The Dark Below, he or she is an accomplished warrior. If not exactly allied with the Queen of the Reef, the player is accepted by her, and maybe by other Guardians. That’s where The Dark Below begins: with a Guardian now comfortable with, even ensconced in, their second life before they meet Eris Morn…

destiny

What’s New in The Dark Below
Eris

The Guardian Eris Morn is a sole survivor. Erin was one of six Guardians who entered the Hellmouth and caught the first glimpse of the evil Hive god Crota. You can guess how that went since only Eris survived the journey. In any other game, she might be the protagonist. Instead she’s the mouthpiece of The Dark Below, offering new bounties, gear, and missions. Eris is a former Guardian, but one thing about her doesn’t appear human: her three eyes. Was she mutated in some way?

The Destiny team have said that they know players want more story, and The Dark Below could provide some of that under Eris’ watchful eyes. For some reason, she spent three years hiding on the moon before telling Commander Zavala, the leader of the Titan class, that Crota needed to be stopped. Yeah, you might want to get on that, Guardian…
The Hive’s Plan

An undead species, the Hive have four limbs and an exoskeleton. Although they reside on the moon, and are therefore one of the first types of enemies you encounter, they’re also one of the oldest races in the galaxy. The Hive travel through space in a magical stasis that keeps them alive for millennia. As with most things in Destiny, their technology is a mixture of magic and science, with the Wizards overseeing it all.

Like the other races, the Hive are broken into sects operating with similar goals under different banners. The Spawn of Crota seek to bring the undead king Crota to power on the moon. Then there’s the Blood of Oryx sect, which serve, appropriate enough, Oryx – Crota’s father. The Blood of Oryx sect has been busy writing their dark lord’s name in Hive rituals. We’re not sure whether the other sects were okay with this vandalism. We might get to see some infighting between the Hive sects if Bungie decides to develop this.

Crota, son of Oryx is considered to be a god. Really, knowing the Hive, he’s probably one of the oldest of the space-undead, and a master of the kind of Hive rituals that power the Wizards’ creepy science. After falling into stasis some time after his conquest of the moon, Crota now aims for Earth and wants to kill humans, presumably to ensure Hive domination.

We don’t know much about Oryx yet except that he’s thought to be the master of all Hive sects and the source of their powers. It doesn’t look like players will encounter him in The Dark Below. Whether he’s Crota’s literal father or more of a member of a line of succession might or might not be revealed.

First, you have to keep the Hive forces from growing stronger. Beneath the Cosmodrome, the site of your Guardian’s rebirth in what used to be Russia, lies the Jovian Complex. This is the realm of Omnigul, a Wizard expanding the Hive’s army in advance of her master Crota’s return. You’ll have to defeat her to get out of the new Strike, “Will of Crota,” alive.

Then, you must stop the Hive from raising Crota from the dead before he can spread his darkness across the galaxy. Again, we’re still not sure what the heck the darkness is, but we have a feeling that it’s bad stuff. Jump into the Hellmouth just in case.

You’ve probably seen the Hellmouth before. A huge white pit with blue liquid boiling within it, it’s linked to other major Moon locations like the Anchor of Light. The Hellmouth was one of the first areas designed for the Moon. Environment Artist Sam Jones said in a Bungie Weekly Update that the Hellmouth was designed to embody the traits associated with the Hive, like “mystery, darkness, evil, strength, and militarism.”

If you’ve played through the Venus Raid, then you’re probably aware that you’re going to die a lot in the Hellmouth. The “Crota’s End” Raid will have a difficulty of level 30. Its hard mode, which will be set at the level cap of 32, won’t open until January. Bring some friends.
Patch 1.1

The 1.1 update was patched into the game over the weekend, and the biggest changes concerned Exotic weapons and resource farming. First and foremost, there’s been a big tweak to natural resource farming in the game, which previously countless boring hours searching for items in Patrol missions. Now, you can purchase resources such as Helium Filaments and Spinmetal with Vanguard and Crucible marks. Thank the maker….er, Traveler?!

Along the same line, Exotic weapons will no longer need Ascendant Shards and Energy to upgrade. Instead, a new upgrade material called “Exotic Shards” will be needed to get your Exotic weapons to the highest level. The best part? You don’t have to farm the damn things. You can obtain Exotic shards by dismantling unwanted Exotic weapons or by buying them from Xur for 7 Strange Coins each. The convenience is killing me.

Bungie also buffed many of the Exotic weapons that players thought didn’t deliver on their promise. That includes weapons such as the hand cannon Thorn, the fusion rifle Vex Mythoclast, and the PlayStation-exclusive auto rifle Monte Carlo. So you can stop complaining about your guns now, and go shoot things with them. Oh, and all Exotic weapons’ base attack levels have been raised from 260 to 274.
