World Of Warcraft Update: Patch 6.2.3 Brings Back Valor Points Drudgery

Blizzard is yet to announce its final schedule for the upcoming BlizzCon 2015 event that will be held next month. Meanwhile the Legion release date is far from what others may have expected because of World of Warcraft Patch 6.2.3.

From the previous ISchoolGuide report, developers plans to create a patch for Warlords of Draenor. The Patch 6.2.3 aims to expand Warlords of Draenor before the Legions will be released. Today, the developers announced on what gamers could expect from the patch.

The Patch 6.2.3 will import back the Valor Points cap to the game, according to Cinema Blend. Valor Points can be used in upgrading gear like spending 250 valor to improve a gear by 5 levels. Also, valor points can be spent with the upgrades of crafted items and loots from dungeons like Hellfire Citadel.

Also, there will be a difference with the Patch 6.2.3 from its past patches. Valor points are no longer capable of buying new gear entirely “because item upgrades offer power that complements items from other sources rather than competing with them.”

Another complaint of players is that they are not being awarded with Valor points with the difficulty levels than the Raid Finder.

However, one of the game designers named Watcher replied “The focus of the patch is on dungeon content,” pointing out those players should “revisit content that you may not have had much reason to do in a while, rather than just providing an extra reward for continuing your existing routine.”

Valor points is one of the features of World of Warcraft Patch 6.2.3. It also includes Mythic raids and Cataclysm Timewalking.  Sell cheap wow gold online

MMOBEYS The Secret to Passing in FIFA 16

Much discussion has been made of the new passing incorporated in FIFA 16. Veteran gamers have either praised or grumbled about the new changes in the game that have resulted in poor first touches, weak kicks and even missing their target by significant distances.

Lets be clear, FIFA 15 was focused predominantly on pace. When playing online matches, youd encounter Real Madrid after Real Madrid, simply because of their incredibly speedy wingers, Ronaldo and Bale, who most defenses would struggle to contain. Youd see a decent amount of success simply lobbing the ball forward for these speedsters to chase. And if Ronaldo and Bale are in on goal, theyre unlikely to miss.

EAs answer to this for FIFA 16 was to make the midfield matter, and in doing so, from what I can tell anyway, made speed less powerful. But elsewhere, other key changes have altered the pace of the game. Passes that would easily reach forwards in FIFA 15 are now more likely to be intercepted by more aware defenders. One-touch through balls more often go awry. Its harder to quickly transition from defense into attack, and it feels ever so slightly slower in the build up.

Because of this, some are calling FIFA 16 boring, frustrating and slow. But some have moved to calm knee-jerk reaction to this change. People are suggesting keeping passing simple, and only going for the killer pass out to a winger when theres obvious space to do so. The new driven pass seems to be a useful option for splitting defences, too. All in all, patience is a virtue.

As always, theres a learning curve whenever a new FIFA is released, but FIFA 16s seems to have caught some by surprise. I feel the new gameplay is a step in the right direction, and makes for a more measured, rewarding and ultimately less frustrating competitive play experience. With the inclusion of No Touch Dribbling, there is more focus on a technical build-up play.

FIFA 16 Team Mode Explained

FIFA 16 has arrived with splendid reviews. Among one of the new features praised is the   (FUT) mode where players are given cards at random from digital booster packs and they must use what they’re give to form teams. Teams assembled can be used to enter a few competitions and contend for a championship which then earns them coins to continue constructing their team. Impatient folks can just pay real money to get ahead, but let’s not get into that.

FUT mode necessitates constant internet connectivity though it is not mandatory to go up against others online. This is because several features in that mode is only accessible online. Hooray EA, you schmucks.

The thing with FUT mode is that it is not a matter of progressing to a stage of amassing star-studded players. That aspect of the game is banal and frankly hardly exciting. Players in a team must have that click, the right chemistry to work together optimally. So some consideration is required, which is cool.

A variant of the FUT mode is FUT Draft, where players form a team using random golden players. Like the normal FUT mode, drafted teams can participate in tourneys to win stuff. Chemistry, in this case, is also imperative. But FUT Draft isn’t just there for the taking; players have to splash 15,000 gold coins to get in.  Fifa 16 ps3 coins

World of Warcraft: Expansion Game To Feature Major Changes

Buy cheap wow gold    “World of Warcraft: Legion” is anticipated to be the expansion that Blizzard needs to rekindle its fans’ flagging interest in the game.

Based on the latest “World of Warcraft: Legion” reveal trailer, Blizzard seems to be pulling out all the stops to ensure that old and new players will get their hands on the latest incarnation of the popular online multiplayer game, Neoseeker reported.

If Blizzard manages to pull all of these off, the company may be able to breathe new life into its franchise game which has seen its subscriber base significantly dwindle over the years.

The game developer’s calculated build-up leading to the release of “World of Warcraft: Legion” seems to indicate that it has already learned from the mistakes it made in the development of the “Warlords of Draenor.”

However, the big reveal that has created a major buzz especially among long-time players is the removal of multistrike from the game.

This is considered a crucial development in “World of Warcraft: Legion,” as the elimination of the secondary attribute would result to major class overhauls that would affect Blood Death Knights, Subtlety Rogues, Holy Priests, Survival Hunters, and Elemental Shamans.

Moreover, a lot of specs will be getting a make-over wherein long-time players will have to relearn everything about their main when they get the game’s pre-patch.

Although no release date has been set “World of Warcraft: Legion,” the game is expected to be a hit among fans who have long been waiting for the game to make a strong comeback.
