COD World League Stage 1 Playoffs are upon us

After a gruelling month of tough, heart-racing competition in the frantic group stages, 16 of the best Call of Duty teams in the world have been distilled into a top 8. These fierce teams have also been drawn into two separate pots, from which they must claw their way out, towards the $200,000 prize money for 1st place, in the MLG Arena. Here are the results of the draw for the COD World League Stage 1 Playoffs; The looming playoffs will take place within a dense weekend of epic showdowns and pure nail-biters, establishing rivalries and settling grudges, from May 26th to 28th. Although Infinite Warfare has not turned out to be quite a success for the community, the competitive scene has never seen such intense competition, due to more prize-money and more venues than ever before. Potential winners are Optic Gaming and EUnited, with only one European team in the mix, being Splyce. However, each team, consisting of respectable rosters, has rightfully secured their spot and a chance at handling the silverware. Yet, only from the ashes of gunfights and exciting strategies, may a winner rise.

Managing H2K Gaming was no easy job!

If you follow the professional esports scene closely, there's always another figure behind the success of a team. Adam ''tSpark'' Gatt was not only the top laner, but also the manager of the H2K Gaming Infinite Crisis team which during that time was considered as one of the top three teams in Europe. Infact, they managed to compete in the official ESL Infinite Crisis Season 1 Finals held in Cologne and shared a stage with some well known organisations out there, facing off against the likes of Team Dignitas and Na'Vi. Adam still works in the esports industry with GosuGamers as a database administrator and is currently part of the production team of gamers.com.mt. 

5 Maltese gamers with a difference!

Yesterday we published an article regarding female Maltese gamers which we had to remove due to people getting personal against people who commented or expressed their opinion on such. Some of you requested us to publish something about gamers in-general and as promised, here it is. What you're going to see below are 5 personalities that apart from gaming, they also have interest into something totally different. Let's start!   1. Toni Taliana - Tattoo Artist  A popular tattoo artist and also a keen console gamer, Toni is passionate about gaming and also a big fan of Dragon Ball. In the above picture you can see him drawing Vegeta on his own leg.   2. Melvin Micallef - Mr. Malta 2017 Won Mr. Malta last April and he's currently preparing to represent us abroad later on this year.

Rachel Fitz - Athlete Rachel has been gaming for the last couple of years. She is known in the local League of Legends community but she is also making a name for our country even abroad! Rachel represented our island in various competitions like the Common Wealth Games and the European Games!   4.

A World of Warcraft tattoo on a Maltese girl!

It's been more than 10 years since World of Warcraft was released and it's still one of the most popular games ever released on PC with more than 5 million active players each month. A lot of fans from all over the world are also tattooing their favourite characters from the game and so did this Maltese gamer. Rachel Thake started tattooing Queen Azshara on her left arm. As you can see in the video below, it's going to take quite a while but till now the result is looking great. We will share the final result when it's ready!

To whom does Dota belong to?

The answer is simple: It’s up to the jury to determine that Without question, DotA is a world renowned name in the spectrum of gaming. DotA, or ‘Defense of the Ancients’, is a multiplayer online battle arena mod which was released for the video game ‘Warcraft 3’, all the way back in 2003. After 14 years of exponential growth, without surprise, younger companies such as Lilith and uCool have started creating mobile games dangerously similar to DotA. Valve and Blizzard were not amused and thus, sparked a lawsuit. On paper, DotA and other branches (Dota, Dota 2) are the children of Blizzard, Valve, Icefrog, Guinsoo and Eul respectively. (Eul being a creator).  Lilith and uCool would never achieve victory by denying any infringement, especially when similarities are found starting from the name of the games, such as ‘Dota Legends’ which has since been abolished. (Another game which was also highlighted was ‘Heroes Charge’ which remains purchasable.) Therefore, these keen developers have struck from a different angle, with surprising claims that contradict the stated ownership of the title to the mentioned developers and creator. This immensely spiced up the case, drastically adding tension and anxiety. The foundation on which uCool cements this argument is regarding recently added content to the newer title ‘Dota 2’, which apparently strips all of these developers of any ownership.  ‘Dota 2’ contains constituents from the ‘DotA All-Stars custom’ map which gradually launched itself into becoming the most popular rendition of ‘DotA’ in ‘Warcraft 3’. Continuing with uCool’s reasoning, since this custom map has no official owner, then correspondingly, DotA has no owner and accordingly belongs to the community. In my opinion, this ounce of reasoning is rather sketchy, since all of DotA’s popularity has not been generated from a single title, but then again, the jury shall decide. Note how uCool is involved individually, with Lilith indifferent, perhaps due to a lack of confidence? In response to this ‘by the people, for the people’ attitude, Blizzard and Valve have rightfully denied everything, showing not a glimmer of doubt over the entitlement of the intellectual property. Yet, they stab themselves in the back with an unexpected forum post extracted from 2004, created by none other than Eul, a contributing creator to DotA: From this point forward, DOTA is now open source. Whoever wishes to release a version of DOTA may without my consent, I just ask for a nod in the credits to your map. Naturally, uCool pounced on this opportunity, this quote being an essential part to their case.  Presiding judge Charles Breyer, however, didn’t make much of it and calmly denied the company’s appeal for concise judgement. Breyer’s outlook on the forum was that Eul used poor language to demonstrate his surrender of a few rights, but not all. The presiding judge has also created an impressive summary of the case which withholds all the details and history of the ‘DotA’ property. Included is a ridiculously comprehensive timeline of development, with depositions and puzzling problems to be solved by the jury. Breyer writes that; The record contains ample evidence that Eul, Guinsoo, and IceFrog were the masterminds behind their respective versions of Dota and DotA All-stars. Presiding Judge; Mr Breyer At the moment, the case is frozen at a stand-still, with both sides eagerly waiting for the jury’s consultation to begin. The world of gaming holds its breath, ready to find out who the true owner of DotA is. Nevertheless, DotA will always remain a beloved game which many say could be the world’s first and greatest MOBA.
