Featured Tournaments

By Brian Barnett Counter-Strike: GO has received a new matchmaking system that analyses player behavior across Steam. According to the Counter-Strike blog , the new system has created something called a Trust Factor for Steam players. This system takes into account total time playing CS:

To be eligible for a souvenir package, all you have to do is watch live streams of the event!

It’s not like the game hasn’t evolved, though: While getting a 5-star uppercut isn’t as exciting as getting Ronaldo in FIFA or Odell Beckham Jr in Madden , it’s cool how every one of your character’s moves are rated, so you can see your strengths and weaknesses. Of course, with an Ultimate Team mode comes two currencies, and one of those currencies, UFC Points, is purchasable with real money.

The good news is that packs don’t cost much — we were able to buy the most expensive pack after playing three matches — but it can give people an unfair advantage in online fights. Strangely, in a move that’s too close to mobile gaming to our liking, you can watch adverts in-game to earn coins, which does feel a little too dystopian. There are also Live Events — which allow you to bet on upcoming UFC fights in order to earn rewards — a Custom Event Creator that lets you select everything from the fightcard right down to the referees, and an online Title Chase mode, in which you work your way up from outsider to title holder.

Career mode also has a Fight Night -style training camp feature, where you train in different disciplines before every fight. UFC 2 has new content in spades, and while the Career mode is an easy favourite thanks to its depth and unpredictability, always throwing new scenarios and stipulations at you, Live Events is a strong mode, too, and is a good way for new fans of the sport to get into it. While these are all welcome additions to the franchise, you’ll probably want to avoid all online modes for the time being because of some terrible gameplay tweaks.

While the standing gameplay of punching and kicking feels as satisfying as ever, the clinching system is horribly unbalanced. Instead of clinch positions transitioning fluidly, it all feels very disjointed, and whoever starts the clinch has a huge advantage over their opponent thanks to an inability to escape from it. Play a match online, and more often than not your matches will be a race of who can clinch first, followed by 20 seconds of punches to the head and a knockout.

The ground game isn’t very strong either. While the new HUD is quite helpful, telling you your available transitions and how to perform them, it still feels a little disjointed, and is always tilted in the favour of the fighter who initiated things.

This is typically prevented by creating a barrier of indestructible blocks such as dungeon bricks. Additionally, ghost-like monsters called Wraiths will spawn in greater numbers during a Blood Moon. They are a great threat as they pass through walls and are difficult or impractical to kill with traps.

When matches get to the later rounds, they become very tense and nervy, and the feeling of losing or winning by one expert move can be soul-crushing or satisfying.

Comments Shares The legendary arcade quarter-eater Tekken has come to PC for the first time with Tekken 7, which is out on Steam as of yesterday. I was pleased to see Tekken 7 running at 60 fps which it’s locked to at x on Ultra settings on my GTX It includes a good set of standard graphics settings, as well as little extras such as an FPS counter. Unfortunately, while ultrawide resolutions can be selected in fullscreen mode, they result in black bars.

Tekken 7 completely lacks any kind of mouse support. Navigating menus is frustrating and tedious using keyboard hotkeys—all the more so because hotkey reminders and helpful prompts reference controller button configurations.

Comments Shares Activision has successfully filed a patent designed for use in multiplayer matchmaking systems. In short, it’s an idea to engender envy at teammates’ or opponents’ gear through the matchmaking algorithm itself. Here’s the abstract from the patent, granted today after its filing two years ago: The system may include a microtransaction arrange matches to influence game-related purchases.

A junior player may wish to emulate the marquee player by obtaining weapons or other items used by the marquee player. It has not been implemented in-game. It’s also not a reactionary move on Activison’s part, as the patent took two years to go through. Still, with resentment for loot boxes and microtransactions at an all-time high, the timing is unfortunate for the publisher. Here’s the bit on microtransaction matchmaking detailed later on: Similarly, the microtransaction engine may identify items to be promoted, identify marquee players that use those items, and match the marquee players with other players who do not use those items.

In this manner, the microtransaction engine may leverage the matchmaking abilities described herein to influence purchase decisions for game-related purchases.
