New experience gain system in Overwatch

Recently Blizzard released new patch for Overwatch, which has new hero, battle mods and location (for an arcade mod) and a few balance strings. Due to all these changes, the changes in the mechanism of gaining experience might go unnoticed.

No more event crates abuse in Overwatch

Well, director of project Jeff Kaplan specifically focused on this point a little more to explain to players what Blizzard wants to achieve. Let us explain: earlier upon reaching level 100 you can start you leveling as you was 1st level, and at the same amount of experience as you get at the starting levels was again in exactly the same way as in the first playthrough. The trick is that for each level the player gets a free container of cosmetic items and, according to Jeff Kaplan, the old algorithm negatively impact on the game.

He said that before seasonal activities (for example, to “summer games” or “Horror on Halloween”) high-level players stop playing to start the re-leveling from the 1st level at the start of the festive events. The motivation is simple – on the lower levels, up to the 23th, character leveling is much faster, so that players very quickly received 23 free container. And with this new system players can not exploite Blizzards system to get 23 “free” containers. When player reach 100 level, every next level will require 20 000 units of experience.

Developers words abut this issue

“These changes should provide the advantage to the community of players – Jeff said. – If they come into force before the start of the “Horrors of Halloween”, we would have distributed crates to players. More players would get more cosmetic things”. Of course, users argued that in this way Blizzard wants to increase sales containers for real money. “This decision has nothing with the desire to increase sales – reported the director of the project. – The purpose of the changes – to prevent excessive haste in the game, or vice versa, the rejection of her. We want to people who have not yet reached the levels of prestige, do not feel deprived, we did not think that you missed a nice bonus“.

In general, developers will allow to rapidly increase the levels and get a reward at the first acquaintance with the game, then all players must be in equal conditions. “We want you to play in Overwatch, or do not play only when you really do not want; that’s the whole reason for the changes … nothing more “- summed up Jeff Kaplan.

Skyrim Special Edition review

Skyrim is still for the Nords

Skyrim remastered I just can not say that Skyrim is the best TES game (not even at 3rd place at my top), but i still happy that Bethesda remastered it.

Let’s start from the good news to PC owners, and bad for the owners of consoles. So who got PC version with all add-ons, will revieve this remastered version for free, Consol owners need to buy this game for a full price, becouse Skyrim never relesed for consoles of 8 generation (PS4, XO).

Skyrim: Special Edition.


How good remaster has out, I think, should be judged not by the graphics, but by the impressions of all at once. Original 2011 visually, of course, was terrible.

Now graphics in Skyrim has been notably ennobled: they put on the walls beautiful textures and pulled npc models to sane species. Most of the work was made with lighting, shadows and backdrops.

Outdoors updates given their results – in static remaster looks great too. During the first hour of study walks, yet nothing happened really, I just stayed for 10 minutes to watch the sunset, urban landscapes, and dense thickets flattering.

Of course, it is necessary to compare the graphics, as they say, attaching one to the other. In this question our comrades from DigitalFoundry will help. They rescued us countless times.

Why you must return to Skyrim

Skyrim SE

In fact, there is reason better than upgraded visual part. Main thing that is not lost in almost 6 years since the release – the atmosphere and boundless freedom.

You are free to do what you wish and as you wish – even just peacefully go hunt, and then peacefully cooks omething from it. In Skyrim, war – this is not a straight road, and the whole arena of endless conflict, filled with decisions, dialogues, characters and their meaning.

Just say “Hello” to a stranger, and you will never know where this dialogue will lead. Maybe to the war of magic schools and the clash of their interests; to find vintage treasures; to the ancient curses, that cut out whole villages; arrogant power-hungry rulers; mad warlords with grandiose plans for the battle or even ordinary robbers, robbing passers-by on the way to Whiterun.

The game world is huge and not empty. Quests are wait for you at every turn. In caves inhabited by bandits and monsters, there are treasures and rare artifacts and quests. The city is full of different stories, some of which ends with the main branch more interesting tasks. In the end, you can spit on everything and just go to the mountains – to seek adventure on your digital ass.

My Impressions about Skyrim: Special Edition

Skyrim Special Edition

Special Edition – is a great reason to try the game for those who for some reason missed the original at the time. Now you can make it more practical – because Special Edition includes all the DLC, all the necessary patches and everything you need for a comfortable game.
