Ellp – a new Champ in the gaming world

Was Ellp born to help gamers? Not exactly. But we can all shape our own destiny, and so can Ellp! One thing to take into consideration about Ellp, is that currently it’s still a low-level character on its way to its full glory. We’re constantly growing and developing to make gaming beyond smooth, and as we level up, we plan to add more and more functionalities to create the Ultimate PC Gaming Experience, for gamers like us. However, the main quest here, is what can Ellp do for you right now?

Skill path 1: Performance

No one wants to use a wooden computer. You might be surprised to find out that there is more to your PC than you think. With some simple applications, Ellp can help you boost the performance of your PC. How? With the help  of the following two cards:

1. When your hard disk is getting full, Ellp will be there to free up some space
It will notify you about the issue and will ask you to perform a cleanup to get rid of some unwanted files that you never use so that the space can be used up by what matters.

2. When an application is slowing down my PC startup, alert me
Ellp can significantly help with improving PC startup time by identifying those high impact processes which you may potentially do without. This is done by connecting directly to the system’s Task Manager; focusing on the “Startup impact” resources. Any resource you free up, be it memory or processing power, can be used to increase your gaming experience. Sounds good? Brace yourself, there is more.

Skill path 2: Internet

If you are anything like us, a lot of your gaming frustrations come from the quality of your Internet connection. With the ‘When I get disconnected from the Internet, alert me’ card activated, Ellp will notify you immediately when there is an interruption in the Internet connection so that you don’t have to check it manually in the middle of the game.  we can help you monitor your connection so that you know what’s coming.

Now, there is a small disclaimer here – our dev team is still working to make sure that the notifications overwrite the game layout so that you can actually see them. Please bear with us, we are leveling up, remember?

 

 

Skill path 3: Ease of Use

Chances are, that you’re currently immersed in a single game experience only. For me, it’s League of Legends. For my colleague, it’s Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands. We’re not playing anything else at the moment. And of course – we use our headsets for an even better in-game experience. So… we came up with the following card: ‘When I plug in my headphones, open my favorite application’. You simply choose the game .exe file and it’s there for you upon plugging in your headset. There is a really good news and not that good news connected to this card. The really good one is that whether you play on your laptop or your PC, you are able to connect not only your headset yet also your speakers to build the best sound experience. However, if you play on your laptop only, you need the USB connection in order for this card to work.

Another card that we find useful, and you may too, is the ‘When my battery is half empty, let me know’. Easily customizable, it keeps an eye on your power levels while you are busy eliminating your enemies. The real value of this card is that you are able to set the threshold to any level you want. After all, it is you who knows how much power need to be left for you to plug in the laptop without it shutting down. So forget standard 20%, you need 50% to be on the safe side? Can be done! Cool, huh?

This is the selection of cards that we find especially useful for gamers, yet Ellp offers much more! Currently, Ellp offers over 20 cards that take care of your PC’s performance, online security, productivity, and entertainment. With the new update coming next week (8th May 2017), Ellp will offer over 25 different cards and the number is ever-growing. In fact, we would like to ask you, to…

Riot Games Sued for “Striker Lucian” Skin Resemblance

Edgar Davids is a former Dutch professional footballer who played as a midfielder for many years and for many clubs. He had a unique look on the field, mainly due to his glasses, which at times were tinted orange and his dreadlocks.  For the most part, he’s been enjoying his retirement after an impressive career, but the Riot Games forced his hand to sue. Davids did so successfully. Obviously, Riot Games tried to defend themselves with an attempted “it was a complete coincidence” tone, but their own history got the better of them. If we wind the clock back to 2014, a Riot employee tweeted these exact words: “For all you wondering, Striker Lucian was inspired by soccer pro Edgar Davids.” Somebody’s getting fired. At the time, Edgar Davids was quite grateful for the inclusion into the game but he was unaware of the immense size of LoL. Therefore, he’s chosen to strike now for compensation.  Below is an extract from the court’s statement. "The player's marketable popularity is enough reason for the former player to fight the use of his portrait. The player's interests outweigh the commercial interests of the game to offer the Striker Lucian skin and no reasonable compensation has been offered to the player. Riot Games therefore owe the player a compensation fee.” The game developer must pay every penny ever made from using his image. Of course, the player’s claim is extremely valid and we’re pretty sure you can see the utter resemblance yourself. Even the use of “striker” closes the gap to the football field. League of Legends will probably take this to heart for future skins.

Are FaZe going to sign Olofmeister from Fnatic?

Olof “olofmeister” Kajbjer Gustafsson is, reportedly, about to finalise a deal which entails his movement to Faze and thus, his departure from Fnatic. The announcement was taken from Flickshot.fr’s recent post and will probably finalise Faze’s CS:GO roster for the time being. The Swedish player has been on Fnatic for three years, playing as a rifler and secondary AWPer, with some time out do to an unfortunate wrist injury. Nonetheless, he’s been a very effective player for the organisation winning a total of 8 events with a 2nd and 3rd to 4th finish too. Known by the community as “Boostmeister” or “Tec9mester” due to his notorious Tec9 shot, he was one of the best players of 2015. In fact, he was named the greatest player of that year by HLTV.org. We don’t know why exactly the 25-year-old will be leaving or who’ll be replacing him, we just know where his new home will most likely be; Faze. Alongside “GuardiaN” from Na’Vi, “olofmesiter” is part of a fresh Faze roster who will definitely prove their potential in upcoming events. Below is the roster with “olofmeister”, who will be replacing “kioShiMa”. Håvard "rain" Nygaard          Finn "karrigan" Andersen Nikola "NiKo" Kovač Ladislav "GuardiaN" Kovács Olof "olofmeister" Kajbjer Robert "RobbaN" Dahlström (coach) Looking at the new additions, this team looks to be fierce. Hopefully, the changes haven’t been for nothing, but we’ll have to wait for another event to really find out for sure. Photo courtesy of HTLV.org
