EvH Switch up LoL Roster

EvH had assembled their League of Legends squad just weeks ago, and changes have already rolled in. The organisation could only offer that this has occurred to “unforeseen issues”.  Leaving the squad is Jeremy “Fexi” Grech and Albert “Livingdream” Aquilina for whatever the reasons may be. Thankfully, EvH have found a couple of replacements in astonishing time in “Shadow” and “Zod”. Taking up the Support role is Matteo “Shadow” Mizzi with his preferred champions being Thresh, Braum and LuLu. This patch of darkness has been around ever since season 1 and had already joined the EvH roster before the team was launched. Joining the official squad now was only possible after he left another team as their captain; Matteo evidently believes that EvHLoL has a brighter future. Below are a few words from the player: “I feel honored to have been given this opportunity. Me and Zod have decided to take this step in order to take it to the next level.” Jake “Zod” Micallef will fill in the Marksman position and use Caitlyn, Jhin or Vayne in the process. Changing up the format of a team following departures and welcoming new faces may be quite demoralising for a team and oftentimes effects gameplay. EvH thought of that when they also signed coach Andre “Hutch” Agius who will catalyse the team’s reform and ensure that the engine is well oiled for all the upcoming events. Gamers.com.mt wishes the best of luck to EvH’s new roster.

Ozone Strike Battle Tenkeyless Mechanical Keyboard Review

Less is more on this keyboard Looking for a portable keyboard to destroy the competition wherever you go? Ozone seems to provide the answer with the Strike Battle Tenkeyless Mechanical Keyboard. Time to investigate whether reducing size lessens quality elsewhere. Prior to even purchasing the item, one can learn a whole lot just by snooping around the informative little box. Whipping open the box reveals the keyboard covered in Styrofoam, awaiting an owner to claim it. A user manual and an Ozone sticker accompany the peripheral. On the whole, the unboxing experience is standard and the box is certainly sturdy enough to reduce shipping fatigue. Before we can continue the review, we must first establish what the term “tenkeyless” actually means. It’s nothing complicated; a keyboard which chops off the number pad to sport a smaller form factor. That said, the total 87 keys map an area of 351 by 123 mm; a very minimalistic aesthetic. The key font is the standard Ozone font, which rocks capitalisation and non-capitalised. Keyboard layout is available in a couple versions, either American or British, with the shift and enters keys affected. All MX keys, with a selection between red, blue, brown and black are directly planted into the backplate. This exposes the key cleavage which allows for a thickness of just 35m but makes cleaning a priority.  Regarding the black plate, its high quality brushed aluminium which does a fantastic job of keeping the build sturdy and reflecting the bright colours.  Ozone again adds selectivity with the choice of a red or black backplate. However, the housing below the backplate will always remain a glossy back plastic finish which is punctuated by the company name at the front face of the device. The underside hides the product information and is supported by a total of five rubber feet including a couple of optional legs. Onto user experience, complaints are minimal. The plastic matte keycaps do attract finger oils, yet nothing too serious. Returning to cleaning the keys, this was a seamless process since the greater exposure makes the keys very easy to remove. An ergonomic design facilitates long sessions at the desk and the 50 million keystroke lifespan grants a heavy reliability with each press. Yet, some people will need a wrist wrest to use due to the wrists having to lean back a bit. Gaming was a joy with this peripheral; you can tell that Ozone has oriented their approach on this peripheral to fast-paced gaming. From the keyboard itself, one can adjust the polling rate and input delay on the fly. Polling rate varies from 125Hz to 1000Hz and key effective time from 1 to 16 ms. Such a connection is possible with the gold plated USB tailed by 1.5m of braided cable. Yet, there is no internal cable management and no USB pass-through.  Continuing on gaming features, all keys have anti-ghosting and assignment capabilities.  Apart from that come macros, to be discussed soon, and the Game Mode shortcut. The mode shuts down the Windows key and disables WASD or the arrow keys as selected. Also, don’t forget about the full set of media keys above. Thus far, it looks like it has everything going for it, but now there’s still a driver to download and software to check out to unleash the backlighting. From Ozone’s website, the driver is easily located and downloaded quickly.  The ‘Main Control’ page allows one to switch between profiles and manage Macros. These may be edited and added on the ‘Macro Settings’ page and the Advanced Settings gives control over variables, windows key setting and light intensity.  From the pictures of the device, it’s easy to realise that red is the name of the game. All one can do is change sensitivity or create a pulsating effect, both can be done using the quick function from the keyboard. Here, Ozone could have been slightly more creative with the content; perhaps adding a fire effect or a wave of different brightness.  Having only one colour, the contrast and brightness was executed excellently, making it an even more attractive keyboard. Lock functions remain red when used and uncoloured when inactive, which may be annoying with just one key without light depending how selective one is. What you really need the software for are the macros. Creating them was extremely easy and nothing too difficult. Six macros over 5 profiles add up to a tally of 30 macros which should be more than enough for gaming. The thing is, you can only really use them for gaming when game mode is activated; so no passwords or emails can be saved since the WASD keys will be disabled which makes the experience awkward. All this customisation is stored on 64kb of internal memory. Portability is clearly the main theme of this product, and Ozone nearly achieves perfection. One can tell from the onboard storage, small form, light weight of 700g, intense utility and high quality build. The only thing that it needs is a detachable cable.  One thing I forgot to mention is the accessibility to the internals of the keyboard itself, having 4 screws to fix any problems.  The Ozone Strike Battle Tenkeyless keyboard is at the arguably the best keyboard in its category and must be considered for LANs, events or even taking it to a friend’s house. Gamers.com.mt strongly recommends this keyboard for the upcoming Malta Cyber Series #3 coming up this September.  For only €90, it’s a super choice. Who it’s for; Gamers looking for a minimalistic keyboard without numpad Gamers with red colour as part of their setup Pros who need portability and utility Those gaming on the go Those looking for their money’s worth Who it’s not for; Those who desperately need RGB Those who need a numpad Gamers selective about colours in a setup Want to have the best portable gaming solution right now?

Gambit Beat Immortals to Win PGL Major

Finally, after an incredible week of competitive Counter Strike: Global Offensive, Gambit defeated Immortals in the grand final to become the champions. The $1,000,000 tournament has surely fulfilled everyone’s expectations, yet Gambit weren’t exactly the favourites to win it. Nonetheless, Immortals put up a great fight to properly finish the event with a bang. The selected maps were Cobblestone, Train and Inferno. Cobblestone started with an overwhelming performance form the Brazilians side of Immortals who built a 12-3 scoreline by half time as Terrosists. Gambit tried to bring it back but was harshly denied by Immortals who sealed the deal at 16-4. Gambit desperately needed to take Train and swing the momentum in their favour. Following a dominant Terrorist side, passive strategies and quality plays; this is exactly what they did. Although Immortals was beginning to climb back into it, the Brazilians were beaten and conceded the map, due to a 16-11 score. The best of three would come to the last map. Choosing the Counter-Terrorist side of Inferno was evidently a clever move for Gambit, who rose to a 5-0 lead instantly. The Brazilians could only scramble together four rounds to make up an 11-4 score by half time. Immortals started the second half with a much needed streak of five rounds – if they were going out fighting. Towards the end of the game, a lack of economy was noted on both sides, resulting in a few UMP-45s being used. Fantastic clutches from “HObbit” and “Zeus” post-plant finished off Immortals and won them the tournament. This event, the PGL Major, is Gambit’s first ever major championship win and their second title of the year. Such a victory was deserved and fought for with great hunger from the team. Let’s see if they can keep this up.
