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…

Overwatch World Cup Details

Excitement builds as days fall like leaves until the Overwatch World Cup commences for 2017. The earliest matches, of Groups A and B, start July 13 and finish two days later. These groups go all the way to letter H, so here’s a concise list of each member in every group accompanied by their dates of action. Group A; Hong Kong, China, Norway and Romania – July 13 to 15 Group B; Denmark, Thailand, Argentina and France – July 13 to 15 Group C; Sweden, Australia, Italy and Portugal – July 20 to 22 Group D; Finland, Japan, Spain and Vietnam – July 20 to 22 Group E; South Korea, Netherlands, Poland and Austria – August 4 to 6 Group F; Canada, Russia, Singapore and Turkey – August 4 to 6 Group G; United States, Taiwan, Brazil and New Zealand – August 11 to 13 Group H; United Kingdom, Germany, Israel and Belgium -  August 11 to 13 Tickets will be available to support one’s country at the multitude of global venues. Line-ups are settled, but wouldn’t fit into a little article as such. For more details on individual rosters visit; https://worldcup.playoverwatch.com/en-us/#group-stage. Don’t miss the Overwatch World Cup Finals to occur from November 3rd to 4th after groups are settled. Three top countries are South Korea (last year’s champions), United States and France. Yet, France has an advantage no other team has; a deep chemistry due to the fact that every player was taken from the same team, Rogue. Anyhow, it’s absolutely amazing to see a gathering of 32 countries battle it out to resemble well known tournaments such as the World Cup of football. Personally, I commend Blizzard on taking the initiative again to create an intense global event – players will become adjourned to no longer just competing for prize money, but for pride, for their country. Overwatch has brought 32 countries together; hopefully, we could see replicated tournaments for many other titles in the years to come. That would certainly help esports grow in popularity on a global scale just like last year’s event.

Nvidia Graphics Card Prices Increasing

Cryptocurrency is a digital currency in which encryption techniques are used to regulate the generation of units of currency and verify the transfer of funds, operating independently of a central bank; that is the definition offered by Google for those unaware. Cryptocurrency in itself is harmless and doesn’t entail illegality, yet certain actions utilising it may. Mining of such currency is an example, which has led to installing fear in manufacturers who are becoming exploited. The AMD Radeon RX 580 and 570, in result to this cryptocurrency mining, have proven to be quite scarce and disgustingly overpriced. The community is able to pin the blame on this action due to AMD stating it themselves. Somewhat rivals of AMD, Nvidia were initially safe, but recent trends in price increase allows us to question- is it due to the same mining? Nvidia’s Geforce GTX 1060 and 1070 cards are very popular GPUs and pack a lot of power, a price jump was easily noticed. A source on Reddit recognised that a 1060 card was first $210, $246 the next day, and $280 the other. After much research, the user’s claims were proven as fact. Globally, whichever seller you choose, Nivida’s 1060 and 1070 cards have become more expensive, maybe to try countering the mining profits. We can only guess at this point in time, with a statement from Nvidia to truly confirm the thought. What we can be sure of, however, is that newer hashing algorithms have been released and cryptocurrency companies such as Bitcoin are thriving and topping charts. If you’re looking for a powerful GPU for the best price; I wouldn’t hesitate much longer. At this rate, prices may keep building until the 1060 and 1070 cards start to become scarce. Damn cryptocurrency mining and its destroying effect, hopefully Nvidia will put a stop to this for the benefit of everyone.

Luminosity Win CWL : Anaheim

Luminosity Gaming is a major esports organisation which is respected across many titles and platforms. As Call of Duty began to peak in attendance, LG made their way in; hungry for victory. Yet, when entering in November 2015, they didn’t know that a couple years of elusion and disappointments would come their way first. Finally, as of yesterday, LG have won a championship, namely CWL Anaheim last Sunday. Entering Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, a huge roster change happened and left many curious to what this new team could accomplish. Players ‘NAMELESS’, ‘SpaceLy’ and StuDyy’ left and were replaced by ‘Classic, ‘Octane’ and ‘Slacked’. Everyone would admit that LG had some serious potential for the year. After being denied the trophy at the CWL Stage 1 Global Pro League by Splyce, they would return the favour at CWL Anaheim. Last Sunday’s grand final, if you haven’t figured it out, was between Splyce and Luminosity Gaming. Splyce had fought through a tough loser bracket and would need two wins to claim victory. Many doubted this would happen with LG’s recent form, defeating favourites Optic Gaming yet again and simply not losing in brackets. Everyone will agree, however, that it was an insane match- up. The first map, Scorch Hardpoint, witnessed jaw-dropping plays with a final score of 249-250; a hyped victory for Splyce. LG would remain calm and snatch the SND on Crusher in a 6-4 fashion. Going into Uplink, LG were the favourites being one of the best uplink teams in the game and not surprisingly, hammered Splyce with an 11-5 scoreline; all the momentum from the first map was gone. Sealing the deal was the second hardpoint, on Retaliation which saw yet another nail-biter closing at 250 to 245. Thus, $80,000 of prize money went the way of Luminosity Gaming and the MVP was respectably given to Octane. The 19 year old impressed and has shown that this is his game. The squad’s integrity will be tested on June 30 th , at second season of the CWL Global Pro League.
