I THINK the Brand changes aren't making it to live, based on some posts they've made, but I haven't seen them taken off PBE yet. We'll find out when we get patch notes later today.

Oh poop..... So in essence, unless we have a second PC no livestreaming of Destiny?

You can still windowed mode it and screencap or window cap, but it's a bit weird that you have to.

So the guy didn't feel bad about stealing from people, but when it became more about stealing revenue from game companies, then he felt bad and quit? That's just odd.

One is rather more likely to land you in legal hot water.

Bluehole say PUBG player banned for stream sniping was lobby hopping to try to secure killsBluehole say PUBG player banned for stream sniping was lobby hopping to try to secure kills
Ben Barrett Avatar

Yeah, that's pretty much what I said. Getting rid of it is a good idea, actually doing it is almost impossible.

Actually doing it is very easy. Put a delay into your stream. A delay of as little as 30 seconds would make this hard to do. Go even further, do not live stream.


This is just part of being public with your gaming and wanting celebrity status. Instead of the paparazzi you get trolls and stream snipers.

Ben,


Obviously everyone wants a game to be fair and balanced. This issue should really come down to statistics. The amount of stream sniping that exists (pretty much unquantifiable), and the percentage of the player base that it affects.


In an idealistic view, yes everyone agrees stream sniping should not exist, though in a pragmatic sense it can be viewed as the risk taken for streaming. There are plenty of options to mitigate stream sniping, yet these members aren't taking advantage of those measures. Then they use their clout to influence biased change on internal and external stakeholders.

The Udyr changes seem pretty humongous for a fairly normal update, slightly odd when he wasn't even mentioned in any context posts recently.

My first ever pentakill was with a full AP Pheonix Udyr. Hurts to see the AP ratio completely scrapped now. I'm going to have to play him AP over the next week before it's all gone :P

Heroes of the Storm review snippet Why would you pick Heroes of the Storm over League of Legends or Dota 2?
Mainly the speed. Individual games are much shorter and more action-focused - you can play two or three games in an hour, and even short sessions feel more fulfilling than other MOBAs.

StarCraft II: Legacy of the Void review snippet Are the aliens in StarCraft II: Legacy of the Void scary?
Depends how you feel about faceless psychics and gribbly beasts. It never goes into straight-up horror, and Blizzard's style is so over the top that it defies becoming disturbing.

Undertale review snippet Is Undertale nauseatingly cute?
No, it subverts itself a lot and switches it up from just plain cute rather quickly.

You Must Build A Boat review snippet Have you come up with any clever strategies in You Must Build A Boat?
Beyond matching non-combat tiles outside of combat as much as possible and avoiding wasting big damage combos without anything to hit, no, it's mostly luck with a bit of pattern recognition in there.

The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth review snippet How gory is The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth?
Nothing spectacular, and the low-fi graphics mean it's far less in your face than you get from today's various big-budget offerings. It is gross, though, and if you stop and think about what's going on it's basically disgusting.

Grand Theft Auto V review snippet How open is Grand Theft Auto V to explore?
It's a massive city that's basically completely unrestricted, especially with some mods to open up more of the buildings. The tools you have to get around make it even easier, but there isn't a lot to do out there.

Counter-Strike: Global Offensive review snippet How does Global Offensive compare to Source or 1.6?
Source was my game and even the tiniest changes in GO put me off initially. It has some additional weapons and a large rebalance pass, plus various changes to the cash system, menus, level layouts etc. It's also patched more regularly than its previous counterpart. It is as much a brand new game in the details as it is broadly the same. However, if you're a Source or 1.6 hardcore player, you likely already know which you prefer.

METAL GEAR SOLID V: THE PHANTOM PAIN review snippet How realistic are the horses in METAL GEAR SOLID V: THE PHANTOM PAIN?
As realistic as it's possible to be while being an armoured, immortal horse that gets air-lifted by a balloon regularly.
