The world's most precise mouse by Razer is here!

After alot of teasing posts on different social medias, Razer finally launched the Razer Lancehead, while they're saying that it the world's most precise mouse to date. Although wireless mouses are not popular yet especially when it comes to the esports scene, alot of companies such as Logitech and Steelseries are trying hard to convince the general public that they are indeed an option they should consider when buying a good mouse. Ofcourse the lancehead offers RGB lightning aswell. At a price tag of €140, this isn't just an average gaming mouse. Would you consider it as your future peripheral?

EvH's LoL Domination Behind the Scenes - Interview

There's no question regarding whose on top in the local League of Legends scene at the moment; EvH. Gamers.com.mt decided to get a closer look at their 2017 and how it all went down leading to their supermacy. Upon reaching out to them on social media, they radiated enthusiasm and were especially ecstatic to be interviewed; making the whole process a joy and we applaud them on this attitude. Responding the questions are the terrific duo of Owen "Deity" Magri and Marlon "Blaze" Polidano, the two central players at the heart of EvH's success in LoL. Without further delay, we hope you enjoy the interview below! We’ll start chronologically, it’s only right. The team was signed early this year in April; what was your reaction to being signed by EvH? What where your expectations for the year ahead? How did you plan to achieve these goals? We were really excited to be working with EvH who were, at that time, the local champions in Overwatch. As for the expectations, we wanted EvH to have an impact in the League of Legends scene as well as working aside with Mike “z4mbu” Saliba on the growth of EvH, who also helped us in gaining the exposure and support every local esports team should have. We would like to express our sincere thanks and appreciation of what he has done so far for us. We were very motivated in accomplishing this and we kept working hard for future events. After just two weeks of representing EvH, the team was hit with a roster change. With the players knowing each other for so long and succeeding together this came as a surprise. What effect did the change have on the team? Describe how long it took for everything to settle into place? What’s it like to constantly be aware that one day you could be dropped or signed by a different team? The roster change was a long thing coming. One of our members had plans into pursuing a scholarship abroad and this would definitely interfere with our team practice. As a team even before EvH we would always do our best to be on top by a large margin and after the first local event, we decided as a team that one of our members was not taking the game as seriously as the rest of us, which resulted in the roster change. It took us a while until we were strong as the previous roster, which was even stressful sometimes for the remaining members of the team. After the team started bonding together, it became a very positive atmosphere as the team was stronger than ever before! Fragility is always in the back of our minds which strives us to constantly work hard to always be better than everyone. We all know what happened after that for the rest of 2017; slaughter. First place finishes at all the top events include our very own MESF 2017 and MCS #3. Could you describe why EvH LoL is the best team in the scene? What does EvH have that the other teams don’t? As of right now, who is the biggest threat to your winning streak as we enter 2018? The real reason of why we've always been on top is because of how seriously we take team practice and how productive each session ends up. We really try to maximize the effectiveness of every training session and try to get the most out of it. When it comes to threats for 2018 there's no one that comes to mind. After every event, no team remains with the same five players which makes it difficult to give an answer for this question. We always tackle every team one by one and focus on ourselves. Being a team is more than just competing together on the mainstage. Describe the dynamic between the players on and off the game. Who rises to leadership in-game? How does the team prepare itself for competition? When it comes to the strongest teams, just being teammates in the game is not good enough. We're all very good friends outside the game and get along together well. This helps us to talk more comfortably with each other about the game and helps us in improving mistakes we need to fix. When it comes to leadership, we (Owen and Marlon) guide the team as we are the most experienced in doing so. Preparation is serious and important. We schedule practice with international teams, schedule certain days as individual improvement and participate in online tournaments. So, it’s quite clear that you’ve got the local scene covered, but what about competing on an international level? Do you have any plans for international competition in 2018? Do you think you have what it takes? The international level is something which we are definitely looking forward coming 2018. This is something we dream of and we definitely want to showcase our talent elsewhere other than the Maltese scene. As for what it takes time will tell. We do our best to practice as often as we can, hoping that an opportunity may arise to compete internationally. For those anxious LoL teams starting out now, or solo players looking for a team, what advice do you have for those starting out in the scene? What did you, as individuals, have to sacrifice to take it to the next level? What mentality is required to succeed? Best advice would be to never give up. We've all started from the same point, it's just a matter of how hard you work for it and how hard you want to earn it. We've all invested an immense number of hours practicing, improving and reviewing our games for us to end up where we are. Mentality is a major factor in League of legends so it's very important to focus on improving it. Last but not least is to enjoy the game. Have fun doing what you love, it makes everything easier. In the final question, we’ll be looking from a broader perspective, as in EvH on the whole. 2017 saw expansions into Overwatch and LoL while obtaining a strong sponsorship from Go&Fun and having the opportunity to re-brand shirts and logo. It’s been a fantastic year. What does the future of EvH hold? Any specific plans for 2018? EvH as an organization mostly will continue to search for entities who are willing to support our league of legends roster in any way possible, for us to have the opportunity of proving our talent elsewhere other than the Maltese scene. We would like to be the first Maltese team to have an impact on one of the biggest and most competitive games of all time. In regards to plans for 2018 it is too early to tell but there are already plans for the team to travel and compete internationally. We can’t thank you enough for participating in this interview, Gamers.com.mt is glad to have had this opportunity. Local esports organisations are the only way forward for the Maltese gaming industry, plucking Malta’s talented individuals from any restrictions and giving them the chance to prove themselves behind a screen. We wish you the utmost of luck for your future as an esports organization, especially the LoL sector which looks extremely promising! This interview with EvH is only the beginning; personally as a writer, I'm looking to delve even deeper into the Maltese esports industry. Thus, you can expect more interviews, discussions and other insights as time progresses. As of right now, two other interviews are being coordinated and we highly recommend that you keep updated either with our newsletter or through Facebook.

Battalion 1944 - An FPS Merging the Old and the New

Battlefield 1 and Call of Duty: World War II are two of the top first-person-shooters over the past two years which are found on console and pc platforms. There haven't been any recent titles dedicated for the PC community which also revolves around those time period, but that all changes with Battalion 1944. Arriving soon, Gamers.com.mt thinks that this game has quite the potential.  "Battalion 1944 recaptures the core of classic hardcore shooters and propels WW2 into the next generation of competitive gaming. We are utilizing modern industry technology to create a visceral and heart-thumping multiplayer experience that will be crafted by designers who have grown up playing Counter Strike, Call of Duty 2 and Call of Duty 4 ProMod." The above is the extremely encouraging comment found in the trailer description. The fact that they mentioned games close to their heart like the aforementioned puts even more validity in the quality of the upcoming game. Developed by Bulkhead Interactive and to be published by Square Enix, it looks to bring core mechanics and gameplay from COD2 and mash them in new maps and updated graphics. This is our favourite part of the game. Perhaps if it emulates a similar career and multiplayer function, then this title could be a home run for the old-timers out there.  As you may be aware, the past year of local esports has seen the nostalgic presence of COD2 in two of the largest events in the form of the Malta eSports Festival 2017 and the Malta Cyber Series #3. With the old graphics, sparked new competition and tension which is gripping the Maltese community. Yet, for how long can we stay playing a 12 year old game? Battalion 1944 has found itself at the top of the list to continue this legacy under a new name.  Feel free to .learn more and maybe add it to your wishlist here: http://store.steampowered.com/app/489940/BATTALION_1944/

Ephica or Paradigm6 - The Dilemma of COD2

Raising COD2 back from the grave was probably our most ambitious propositions this year, since we risked the disinterest of modern competitors and the disregard of veterans. However, we were pleasantly repaid with an epic amount of feedback and this sparked a ferocious amount of tension in the scene. As old-timers blew the dust off of their peripherals and youngsters began exploring the game, calculating a winner proved difficult, yet, the two names floating at the top were always Ephica and Paradigm6. And there follows the question; who is the top COD2 team? Until the incredible upset at the GO MESF 2017, this was confidently answered. Here’s how it’s gonna go; we’ll provide you with the stats, local community thoughts, other details and you can make your mind by the end of this article. Let’s wind the clock back to the Malta Cyber Series #3 – 700 euro worth of hardware is at stake and Paradigm6 and Ephica are both involved. Ephica are practically coming out of retirement, with “Prime”, “vortex”, “darkieee”, “R1k” and “Biankzai” returning to hold up the legacy of the historic name. Hopes were high, only to be crushed as the veterans were denied a top 3 finish and most would agree that they underperformed. Paradigm6 on the other hand, represented by “sou1ex”, “JeFf”, “B3Rrjj”, “Got1ke” and “bullz”, having 7 COD2 tournament names under the earlier name of Fury Gaming, went on to a first place finish, handsomely declaring themselves the top team. At this point there wasn’t much arguing, yet there was the subconscious agreement that Paradigm6 are only the best if they can do it all over again. That’s where the GO MESF 2017 comes in, tugging on the reigns of the overwhelming support after including the aged title, we simply had to include it in the largest event of the year – even alongside COD: WWII! This time 700 euros of cold cash were on the line, alongside the recently earned reputation of Paradigm6. Eight teams were quickly gathered and the roster of Paradigm6 and Ephica carried on from the MCS #3. In no time, the groups were closed out, bracket completed and the two mentioned teams found themselves in the grand finals on the mainstage. After their previously underwhelming performance at the Cyber Series, arriving at the match was already surprising enough for Ephica, but they were far from finished. Accordingly, the Maltese veterans stole the series in style and ripped the heart out of Paradigm6, to put it dramatically. The venue, for those who were absent, was absolutely shocked while euphoric simultaneously to create an electric atmosphere. As Ephica hoisted the trophy, one can only imagine the shaking heads of the Paradigm6 roster. Now, we’re stuck staring at the indecisive scoreline of 1-1, an event win for each of the highlighted squads. Of course, such numbers tell a tale of equality, displeasingly enough, but everybody knows that there may only be one winner. We’re back where we started in asking ‘who is the top local COD2 team?’ To determine the future, I think it’s just to review the past. Ephica, Ephica, Ephica; I think you’re tired of hearing all about their legacy without knowing much about it. Well, an undefeated run that spanned for two years at the prime of COD2 is their most reputable achievement, as many old professionals will tell you, they were simply dominant. So much so, that they had the opportunity to compete internationally against names such as Team Dignitas. Resurrecting a team like Ephica from the past is what we aimed to accomplish by including COD2 in our events. On the other side is the longest standing name in COD esports in Malta under the name of Paradigm6, as pointed at earlier. Their central achievements stemmed off the release of COD4, as they quickly became the best team. Remarked for their chemistry, they are in this comparison for a reason, having star players such as “sou1ex” who is considered top-tier. All this chatter can only ever be resolved with one more opportunity, one more chance for the teams to prove themselves. Personally, as a writer, I believe that if Ephica show up like they did and tap into their astounding COD2 experience once more, they could prove that they are the top-dogs of the scene. However, if they return to the form which haunted them at the MCS #3, Paradigm6 could easily take it. Who knows when the next rematch could be? A remark at the end; please do not think that we are disregarding the other talented teams such as Doubtful eSports and Narcos Project who also managed podium finishes these past two event, it’s just that the above teams have a dispute to settle.
