Do you want to get a free pack?

It’s so difficult for FIFA online players to connect to online play on January 26, 2015. Because there are some troubles with EA servers, many players can not play the game.

EA SPORTS FIFA @EASPORTSFIFA took to Twitter to let all FIFA players know they are aware of players not being able to access online play, the team is currently working on the issue to resolve it.

EA is compensating all FIFA players with FREE packs right now. Just visit this tweet here to see how you can claim your free packs. One player was so upset they said, “.@EASPORTSFIFA With all that money your customers spend on packs, invest in some decent servers, joke of a company.”
Gamers are complaining on Twitter saying EA should fix the servers ASAP. A few are even saying they are going to end up losing customers because servers being down seems to be a regular occurrence at the moment.

A few NHL 15 players are also having issues, but it doesn’t look like they are getting any free packs, some are saying EA cares more about FIFA 15 players than NHL 15 gamers. It could be the case that there are more issues with EA FIFA rather than NHL.

Are you the guys that can not connect to server? Have you get your free packs?

Footballer’s shooting skills on FIFA 15

We can easily get a list of some best players with great shooting skills, according to the FIFA 15 Shooting tutorial video released by EA Sport

As ever with a new release of FIFA, players of the game will try to find the quickest players in the game and after that the first port of call is finding the best attacking players.

shooting skills, Footballer

Now, following a video on how to improve your ability within the final third EA have also published a list of some of the best attacking players in the game.

As far as finishing is concerned it is hardly surprising that the top two are the two best players in the world right now, Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi.

Just behind those two are Manchester United pair Falcao and Robin van Persie whilst Luis Suarez makes up the top five.

Ronaldo tops the long shots list with Bayern Munich’s Arjen Robben in second and Marco Reus, Hulk and Alberto Costa making up the rest of the top five.

Ronaldo isn’t even in the top five for volleys though with Van Persie top followed by Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Falcao, Lukas Podolski and Wayne Rooney.

Destiny Of The Latest Raid Was Completed Within 30 Minutes

Destiny’s recently introduced Crota’s End raid hard mode has been beat in less than half an hour, Bungie confirmed on Twitter last night.

 

The successful clan behind the news, One and Done, took 27 minutes to finish the mission which features a number of new changes and 33 enemies.

Hard Mode, which became available just yesterday, is a remix of the Crota’s End raid. As Destiny’s level cap is 32, the raid’s new hard mode aims to put players at a disadvantage. Likewise, Hard Mode removes the healing Chalice of Light item from the final boss fight.

Destiny Selling The Legendary Sniper Rifle Known As Lcebreaker

News went out across The Last City and all regions beyond that Xur, Destiny’s mysterious weekend vendor, was selling the legendary sniper rifle known as Icebreaker. Destiny power leveling offers more help. Arguably the best gun in the entire game, my mission was clear: I had to have it.

To understand the tragedy of my tale, perhaps a bit of groundwork is in order. Destiny is absolutely overflowing with loot, but a select number of “Exotic” weapons make up the best gear you can get in the game. There are three ways that I know of to come by these firearms.

For starters, extremely lucky Guardians might receive them as a reward or drop while going about regular in-game business. Secondly, and not quite as rare, you may receive special missions featuring loads of obnoxious objectives in order to “craft” one of the firearms for yourself. Finally, Xur—Agent of the Nine—offers a couple of firearms each week in his personal shop. The trick here is that Xur’s inventory is completely random and he’s only available for 48 hours each week, Friday through Saturday.

I’ve played a decent amount of Destiny since the game launched last fall but, for some reason, my luck with Exotic weapons has been abysmal; by which I mean I’ve never received one. Not one. Not-damn-one.

All of my friends, on the other hand, have multiple Exotic weapons and are working on multiple mission paths at once to earn even more.

As for the third option, my reason for missing out on Xur’s goods all these months is simple: I haven’t had much luck with the currency needed (Strange Coins) to buy his guns and armor, either.

The one time I had a decent pile of Strange Coins amassed, I used them to buy my first (and only) piece of Exotic armor. While you can have multiple Exotic weapons, you can only equip one piece of Exotic armor at a time. That, coupled with the hefty level bonus they offer, made me decide that armor was more important than a firearm, and thus my Strange Coins were spent.

Then, last weekend, the unthinkable happened. Whatever crazy algorithm that controls Xur’s inventory decided to smile upon the masses, making the Icebreaker sniper rifle available for 17 Strange Coins.

Before last weekend, this was the gun in Destiny that everyone was talking about. Terrific stats, massive damage and, more importantly, it has an ability that lets it regenerate ammo over time.

Word went out instantly across social media and forums galore. It was such a surprise that game news sites even did briefs on it, encouraging anyone with the time and Coins to rush out and grab an Icebreaker of their own.


I knew my time had come

I rushed home from work Friday afternoon and immediately booted up the game. Upon checking my inventory, though, my heart sank: One Strange Coin. I had less than 48 hours to earn another 16 round pieces of glory, which needed to be wedged between basketball games I had to cover that very evening and two reviews I needed to pour as much time into as possible over the weekend.


And so

I got straight to work on what I knew would be a massive grind. My first order of business was to tackle a number of missions in order to level up my Vanguard and Cryptarch status. Doing either of these takes a bit of time but I wasn’t too far off from leveling up both of them, and their rewards have the potential to result in Strange Coins. I actually leveled up both at almost the same time and, to my surprise, it appeared my luck was on the upswing: One Strange Coin for each.

Another way you can earn Strange Coins is to turn in Engrams; glowing loot drops you can get within the game that have the potential to turn into gear or various other items, including the Coins. To my surprise, one of the Engrams I had just picked up also gave me a Strange Coin, bringing my total to four.

After I finished work on Saturday, it was back into the grind. I managed to get another group together and we tackled that Nightfall Strike twice. Each time I was awarded with a half-decent scout rifle, but no Strange Coins. One of my party members recommended I focus on public events and regular engram collecting, saying that he managed to rake in a load of Coins that way.

 


And thus

I spent the next five hours (which really should have been dedicated to review time) taking on public event after public event, collecting engrams galore and rushing to the Tower to cash them in. I completed well over a dozen of those events and dropped off more than 20 engrams, but did not manage to collect a single Strange Coin in return.

Looking at the clock, the deadline looming, I knew that I had been defeated. I did my best to pretend that it didn’t bother me too much, but I knew deep down that whatever cruel gods govern Destiny were having a good laugh at my expense over the past 48 hours. They’d gotten my hopes up, convinced me that victory was just around the corner, and then snatched it away from me at the last moment.

 


And so

Sunday morning, the Icebreaker now well out of my reach, I booted up Destiny to play the game the way I typically prefer: Casually. My first mission netted me a single engram, which I dropped by the Tower to cash in before going on to the next activity. Only 20 minutes into my Sunday session with Destiny and with only one engram to claim, it of course turned into a Strange Coin.

The Destiny Of Players In The Game Design Smart Devices

He taped two servomechanisms to his Xbox One controller to repeatedly kill enemies using his Titan’s melee attack. The mechanism simply presses the melee button repeatedly, which kills enemies coming toward him on the moon-based Ocean of Storms map.

The contraption was quite effective, killing 3,600 enemies, which was good enough to boost his level 16.5 character to level 20 overnight. “With the armor I had waiting for him he is now a 26,” he added.

yavin427 came up with the idea after growing tired of grinding in Destiny.

“I am a (semi?) serious player with 300+ hours and a 32, Destiny power leveling lets you upgrade easier, but when I went to level up my Titan it felt so joyless,” he said. “So this popped into my head as a fun little challenge. I did it more for the hell of it.”

He also admits that he could have leveled his Titan much faster had he done it himself. He also freely admits that this contraption isn’t anything to really be proud of.

“To those saying it’s pathetic, I don’t disagree with you,” he said. “But it’s much less an exploit (least effective way to level up ever) than a bit of fun, just to see if it could be done, and no one else was negatively affected by it. Some people did get some laughs out of it though.”

This Week’s Nightfall and Heroic Strike is The Summoning Pits In Destiny

The weekly refresh for Bungie’s Destiny power leveling has come and gone, leaving us with a new Weekly Heroic Strike and a Nightfall Strike to attempt. Both take place in the Summoning Pits, forcing you to battle multiple Hive enemies before taking down the beast Phogoth.

Destiny

The Weekly Heroic’s modifiers include Heroic (more enemies which are tougher and more aggressive) and Arc Burn (Arc Damage from any source is greatly increased). As for the Nightfall Strike, the five modifiers this week include Nightfall (all players dying results in returning to orbit), Epic (more enemies that are more aggressive and have heavy shields), Lightswitch (melee damage from enemies is greatly increased), Angry (enemies won’t flinch) and Arc Burn.

The best weapons to equip for both Strikes are Praedyth’s Timepiece, Fatebringer, Thunderlord, Patience and Time, Murmur, Plan C and Light of the Abyss. You can check out this walkthrough by Todd Awesome on YouTube for more tips and tricks on how to effectively finish the Strikes.

Most Sought After Rewards Are Up For Grabs Next Week From Destiny

Destiny‘s raids are long, sprawling quests that are meant to be tackled by a full fireteam of six players, all of whom have managed to reach the game’s highest experience levels. There’s no matchmaking for the mode either, which means that raid groups need to be assembled manually, among friends (or using online resources). Bungie set things up this way because the raids require lots of teamwork, communication, and group puzzle-solving.

The hard difficulty for the Crota’s End raid in Destiny is set to launch next week, on Wednesday, January 21, according to Bungie. The normal difficulty version of the raid was released in December 2014 as part of the game’s first downloadable content pack, The Dark Below, but hard mode gives high-level players an opportunity to earn some of the game’s most powerful gear at this point in its life.

In return for tackling and defeating these Herculean challenges, players have the opportunity to earn the game’s most potent gear. Armor earned in Crota’s End is one of only two ways in Destiny power leveling to reach the current level cap of 32 (the other requires a talent for competitive multiplayer during limited-time “Iron Banner” events). In the case of Crota’s End, hard mode is the only place that players have a chance to earn the raid’s primary weapons. Note that in order to play, you need to own The Dark Below DLC.

Destiny: 2014’s best-selling PlayStation 4 game on the PlayStation Network

While the PS4 Top Ten was dominated by blockbusters – Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, The Last of Us Remastered and Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor among them – the PS3 rankings saw the addition of more niche titles, including post-apocalyptic animal simulation oddity Tokyo Jungle, which outsold games including Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes and South Park: The Stick of Truth.

Destiny  power leveling  recreated its success over in the Add-On charts, with the title’s Expansion Pass taking the Number One spot for PS4. Its first full expansion, The Dark Below, placed fourth. Extra content for Battlefield and Call of Duty rounded out the Top Five.

Meanwhile, on PS3, past iterations in the Call of Duty series filled the rankings, with packs for 2012’s Black Ops II and 2013’s Ghosts occupying all places bar one. Story-driven expansion Left Behind for The Last of Us plugged the gap at number three.

Shrinking down to the Vita handheld, the chart appears to reveal the console’s strength as a platform for more niche titles. Japanese RPG Sword Art Online -Hollow Fragment- was the top-selling game for the whole of 2014, placing ahead of the portable version of Minecraft.

The PlayStation Store also plays host to a collection of Sony’s past hits, in the form of PlayStation and PS2 ‘Classics’.

In a year ripe with Grand Theft Auto V news, it is perhaps no surprise that Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas was the most popular throwback title. Rockstar’s 2004 crime opus was followed by a trilogy of past Naughty Dog titles – Crash Bandicoot, Crash Bandicoot 2 and Crash Bandicoot 3: Warped.

The ever-popular epic RPG Final Fantasy VII placed ninth, with a remastered version of the game announced for PS4 at Sony’s PlayStation Experience event.

Bungie Released A New Hot Fixes From Destiny

Bungie has released a new hot fix to further deal with the issues that have appeared in “Destiny” following the release of “The Dark Below” expansion. For the latest hot fix, the main focus was on Crota’s End Raid and all of the weapons, rewards and activities that come with it.

Virtual Reality Progresses At CES 2015 As New Contenders Razer, Avegant Glyph And 3D Head Join In
While a previous report has already detailed what’s coming for Crota’s End Raid, there are a few more details given for the Iron Banner, some activity rewards, weapon upgrades and map additions. Check out the list below for the newest updates:

– The Iron Banner is already live now, and among the things to expect are the following Legendary Gear: Level 32 Hand Cannon, Level 32 Rocket Launcher, Level 32 Gauntlets and Level 31 Chest. There are also playlist weapon drops which include the Level 32 Sniper Rifle and Auto Rifle. Destiny power leveling makes you upgrade easier.

– The Control, Clash and Iron Banner playlist will be seeing the following new maps: The Anomaly, Asylum and The Burning Shrine.

– For the weapons, Hive Breaker upgrade has been disabled on the Sniper Rifle Black Hammer until it becomes fixed.

– Finally, for the activity rewards, there are two things to note. The first is that an issues has been fixed where Ascendant Materials are no longer a reward for Daily gold-tier public events. The second is that Weekly Nightfall Strikes can now bring in nine or more Strange Coins as reward.

Apart from dealing with some of the issues brought on by the latest DLC, it appears that Bungie has also been hard at work with the other known expansion, House of Wolves. And if a new leak is to be believed, then it will be bringing quite a number of new additions and content.

IGN has spotted the leak provided by another “Destiny” Redditor fan. The leak reportedly comes from 4chan, the fan-based forum board, wherein the data seems to have been mined from the existing content. An image of the mined data can be found in the link above, and it details some of the things that “Destiny” fans can expect.

If the leak is to be believed, then “Destiny” will get three more Story Missions, two Strikes, a new Raid called The Arena and four new Crucible maps. There are even titles given for the maps, namely “Thieves’ Den” on Venus, “Black Shield” on Phobos, “Widow’s Court” and “The Timekeeper” on Mars.

As usual, there seems to be new pieces of armour as well following the trend seen in The Dark Below. At the same time, 37 ships, nine legendary weapons and two more exotic weapons have all been scavenged in the data mining. The last two have been identified as a scout rifle and a shotgun.

Destiny

According to the source, both of the weapons appear to have viable strength. The scout rifle 347 Vesta Dynasty allows for two aptly named modifiers, Goliath (to increase player’s armour stat even with non-precision kills) and David (to increase agility with precision kills). The shotgun Lord of Wolves has the Devil’s Touch modifier where your targets will catch fire after you hit it rapidly.

For now, Bungie has not yet commented on the leak, and it appears that it will be keeping its peace until the time comes for the official announcement. Fans can continue to speculate, but bear in mind that most of the mined data should be treated with a grain of salt until the developer confirms the details.
