The current item drop system doesn't function well as a reward mechanism. It drops many items on players who aren't interested in them (the items are extremely common, or they're for a hero the player doesn't play), and in the process dilutes the value of the items. We'd like to get to a place where dramatically fewer uninteresting items enter the economy. We don't have a complete solution yet, so we're going to move forward step by step, taking feedback from you as we go.- Item drops are now entirely time based instead of level based. Drop list now includes full sets, treasures, bundles and Arcanas at a rare rate instead of frequently dropping common items- Battle boosters have been removed from the game entirely (we actually removed them from the store in September). Players with an active battle booster will receive a free Treasure of the Rotted Gallows. Players who had an unused purchased battle booster in their armory will receive a free Treasure Redemption Token.- A new treasure, the "Treasure of the Rotted Gallows" has been added to the game. Treasure Redemption Tokens and other items that can be redeemed for treasures can select this new treasure. International 2013 Treasure Keys may now be redeemed for treasures. The items in this treasure can be traded/marketed in 3 months (February 1, 2015). The rare rewards from this treasure are not subject to the trade or marketing restriction.Bug fixes:- Fixed custom Pudge chains not appearing on both sides.- Fixed unusual Greevils not having their particle effects.- Fixed alternate hero icons not showing consistently in the UI- Buyback button now only accepts left clicks.

That’s Crusoe, and he’s got some mad zombie-slaying skillz. His button-mashing technique is reminiscent of several late-night horror adventures of my own, except I was also screaming “GO AWAY, THIS IS BULL$#@%!”.

Screen Junkies have put together a panel of experts to discuss the details of the recently announced upcoming Marvel movie lineup. The panel discusses some of the backgrounds of these characters in the comics, as well as how they may fit in to the cinematic universe. Whether you’re a long-time comic book fan, or unfamiliar with some of the characters coming to the big screen over the next few years, this video is a great discussion about the excitement of what lies ahead from Marvel.
English impressionist and comedian Terry Mynott took some time at the request of Ubisoft to add a little character to this Assassin’s Creed Unity trailer, and what we got was a gloriously hilarious video of him impersonating Arnold Schwarzenegger, Morgan Freeman, David Attenborough, and Alan Carr. Some of the Schwarzenegger one-liners are absolutely hysterical.
StarWars.com has put together another Top 10 video, this time counting down the best creatures/monsters from the Star Wars universe. Several scary, slimy, and hideous creatures made the list. You can also check out their previous video, Top 10 Star Wars Villains.

SMITE has revealed their newest god, and she is Nox, Goddess Of The Night. Every ability used around Nox lights a flame on her candles, and once all four candles are lit, her next ability costs no mana. Nox can shield herself from damage, and spreads darkness with her abilities which she can consume for extra damage. Nox truly does control the night. Flame of the Night – Passive Nox’s candles gather energy from all abilities used near her. For every ability cast near Nox (excluding her own) a new candle is lit. Once all 4 are lit, Nox’s next casted ability costs no mana. Shadow Barrier Nox creates a barrier of night around herself for 1s that mitigates 50/60/70/80/90% damage from the next hostile ability that hits her. Basic attacks are also mitigated for the entire duration that the shield is up. Nox cleanses roots and slows while this ability is active. Nightfall Raven Nox launches a raven that spreads night along its path. Every enemy it touches takes 100/110/120/130/140 damage +50% of your Magical Power, is silenced for 1s, and is Shrouded in Darkness. The Shroud of Darkness lasts for 5s. Siphon Darkness Nox targets the ground and attempts to consume all darkness in that area. Enemies who are standing in the target area take 80/90/100/110/120 damage +40% of your Magical Power. If a target is Shrouded In Darkness then it takes double the amount of damage. Night Terror – Ultimate Nox links her shadow with an enemy player, dealing 150/160/170/180/190 damage +75% of your magical power. While linked with Nox, enemies take damage again every time they use an ability. Nox’s ability cooldowns are also reduced by 5s every time an enemy uses an ability while linked. The link is broken by moving out of range, or after 5s.

It’s Halloween, folks! You know what that means: costumes! Er – well, costume, I should say…Engwar certainly did not disappoint! This week, Lancastle returns to talk with our hosts about the new upcoming Werewolf skill line and why chat bubbles aren’t the only toggle-able floating texts ZOS should be implementing. Later, they answer questions about the upcoming Justice System, namely: can a Vampire be an Enforcer? And who’s bright idea was it to starting turning players into suicide bombers!? Tune in for all of that and more on the latest episode of Tamriel Unchained, part of the For The Community, By The Community show lineup brought to you by GAMEBREAKER NATION! Donnie Darko: Why are you wearing that stupid bunny suit? Frank: Why are you wearing that stupid man suit?

On this week’s Waypoint, League of Legends gets crabs for its 5th birthday, the puppet master may or may not be Ultron and the LCS expansion tournament is almost here! Riot have introduced a new jungle monster to the public beta environment! It’s very much work in progress and subject to change but there’ll be two on the map, one in each river and unlike other jungle monsters, they’re not hostile. As you can see, it does its best to scuttle away when it’s attacked. It’s pretty tanky for a little guy but it takes bonus damage when slowed or rooted. Why do you want to kill it? For the speed shrine it spawns that grants bonus speed to allies as well as granting vision. League of Legends turned 5 on October 27th! Annnnnd Riot did nothing to celebrate! Awkward. It’s amazing how time flies though. Can you guys believe this game came out on October 27th, 2009?! And five years later, it’s more popular than ever. And spoiler alert, it’s not doing too badly financially either. Seriously, if these numbers from analysts SuperData research are to be believed. Riot might have forgotten their own birthday but they didn’t forget Halloween which is clearly more important. Underworld Wukong and Ravenborn LeBlanc, both of which look great. Keep in mind that these are legacy skins which means they’ll only be around for the duration of the event. This years “Harrowing” will end on November 4th so if you want these skins, now is the time. Of course, it’s likely they’ll come back for next Halloween like all the old spooky skins did this year. And finally this week, the world championships might be over but 2014 isn’t done with e-sports just yet. The expansion tournament set to increase the number of teams in the NA and EU LCS to ten is just around the corner. The tournament is kicking off on November 15th and lasting until December 21st. At which point, the top two teams in each region will earn a spot in the LCS. We’ve been looking forward to this for a while now but Riot clarified the rules this week.
The first three chapters of Bethesda’s The Evil Within are free starting today. Steam wants to you to play this horrorific slasher over this Halloween weekend, so they don’t want you to pay for it. However, if you want to play beyond the first three chapters, you can by the game, and also get Call of Cthulu for free. Then as an added bonus, you can get the season pass for half off. If you already own The Evil Within, you will be granted Call of Cthulu in your media library automagically. Enjoy.

Most of the time, we play war games from the side of the warrior, as the soldier driving the bad guys from a war-torn city. But what about the people in that city? How do they live while there’s a war in the home? This War of Mine attempts to answer those questions by putting you in the shoes of the people living in those builds that you just destroyed in a game like Call of Duty. In a natural manner, you will have to make the tough choices about survival in war-torn city. The pre-order page details the mechanics. Based on the trailer alone, it’s a must-buy.
I would have been fooled by this Chinese company that has created a League of Legends Minifig line. Although I guess they aren’t Minifigs because they aren’t really LEGO. And of course, this toys aren’t endorsed by Riot either. However, Decool and Bozhi’s making some money off of them in China, so Riot should probably consider branching out.
