Moot Update v3.1! Verify Your Epic Games Account on Moot!
Happy Update Day! Today's update is a particularly exciting one for us, as it includes a feature we have wanted to bring to Moot for over a year. Let's get straight into it. OMG WE'RE SO EXCITED WE CAN'T WAIT!
1. Introducing Game Account Authentication!
Starting with Epic Games, you can now verify ownership of your accounts through a simple three step process. Once you finish the process you'll have linked your Epic Games account to your Moot account FOREVER!
This will earn you a Verified tag next to your Epic Games account and your Fortnite stats. You have verified to us ownership of the account and proven those are really your stats!
We have wanted this for so long because it will enable us to reward you for doing awesome things IN GAME!
Most of the benefits for this are "coming soon," but we decided to release this now because we wanted to get the Authenticator in your hands ASAP so you could start verifying your accounts! Let's look at the process together, shall we?
BENEFITS COMING SOON:
-Unique Cosmetic Rewards for Account Authentication
-LFG Benefits for Authenticated Accounts
-Special Events and Quests
Who knows when these things will be coming to Moot? You want to be prepared. Authenticate your Epic Games account today. Here's how.
FIRST, add your Epic Games account to your Moot profile.
THEN, press the "Verify" button to begin.
NEXT, follow Steps 1 through 3. You'll need to add 'Mootdmbot' as a friend on Epic Games. Then, we'll provide you a code which you message to 'Mootdmbot' on Epic Games.
So far, Account Authentication is only for Epic Games. We are working to extend this feature to other games as fast as possible.
Update 3.1 also fixed several bugs, including a bug with app notifications. If you still can't clear that pesky notification, remember to check the Game Calendar!
(Oh, and we added a new Upvote animation!)
hey guys I would really appreciate if everyone could go check out my channel and give a sub and some feedback if you enjoy the videos I produce and hopefully come along one of my streams :)
I call LIES 😂
Moot notified me with this
But if they care so much why did they attack our mental health yesterday 😂
❤love you all❤
The Daily Moot: The Last of Us Part 2 Delayed Indefinitely
1. The Last of Us Part 2 Delayed Indefinitely
The Last of Us Part 2 has been delayed indefinitely. Naughty Dog announced that the launch of the highly anticipated sequel would not hit the planned May 29 release date and would instead be postponed “until further notice.” There is some good news however: Naughty Dog also mentioned that they are “nearly done with the development of The Last of Us Part 2” and “in the midst of fixing the final bugs.” Hopefully this means the game will be ready by Summer.
2. Apex Legends The Old Ways
The latest “Stories from the Outlands” Apex Legends cinematic is here and it accompanies a new event. Called “The Old Ways,” this cinematic features the backstory of Bloodhound, showing their traumatic childhood and how they transformed from a mere child into a fearsome hunter. The Old Ways event will be all about Apex’s hunter, with Bloodhound trials and a Bloodhound Town Takeover. The event will begin on April 7 and run until April 21. Check out the Bloodhound cinematic below.
3. Gearbox Developer Royalties
Gearbox developers are reportedly very upset because their royalty bonuses were lower than expected. Borderlands 3 was the best-selling game that 2K Games has ever produced so Gearbox developers were anticipating sizable royalty checks. Gearbox is unique in that they offer lower salaries in exchange for a profit-sharing agreement which gives 40% of royalties to the development team. Unfortunately for developers, the developer royalties for Borderlands 3 were much less than they had hoped. Gearbox says that this is because of the game’s increased publishing costs which the publisher had to recoup before starting to pay out royalties.
4. Starborne Open Beta
Starborne, a new massively multiplayer online real-time strategy game, has just entered open beta. Developed by Icelandic studio Solid Clouds, Starborne is a grand-scale strategy game which features thousands of players fighting for control of the galaxy. The game offers multiple paths to victory and has been described as “an eight-week-long game of Civilization but set in space on a map with over 5,000 other players.” If you’re a fan of RTS games and are interested in Starborne, check out their website to enter the free open beta.
5. Sea of Thieves Headed to Steam
It looks like Sea of Thieves is headed to Steam. Sea of Thieves mysteriously released a Steam page today without any warning, prompting fans to think that a surprise launch was in the works. Unfortunately that doesn’t seem to be the case, but Microsoft did confirm that Sea of Thieves will be coming to Steam in the near future. As part of the announcement, Microsoft also mentioned that the Steam version will be cross-play compatible with both the Xbox One and Windows 10 versions. While there’s no concrete release date yet, we can likely expect to get some more details soon.
Please, Protect Yourself from COVID-19!
Greetings, beloved Moot members.
You may be experiencing some disruptions to normal life currently as a result of COVID-19. In these challenging times we hope humans of all types can turn to Moot for community, support, and encouragement. We will get through this - together.
The most important thing you can do right now is protect your own health. Please refer to the CDC Guidelines linked here for how to protect yourself.
KEY METHODS OF PREVENTION:
-Wash your hands frequently with soap and warm water, especially after going in public. Alcohol-based hand sanitizer will work if soap and water are not available.
-Maintain a physical distance of 6 feet if possible between you and others, ESPECIALLY PEOPLE OUTSIDE OF YOUR IMMEDIATELY HOUSEHOLD.
-Stay home and away from others as much as possible if you are sick.
Please check out the link above for the entire Prevention Guidelines from the CDC (Center for Disease Control and Prevention). Please also remember to be compassionate towards others as much as possible. Every person is experiencing the current situation differently; it is impossible to tell at a glance who has lost their job, or even a family member or friend.
We do have ONE THING to ask of you, though, if you feel like sharing.
Do you have any tips for dealing with the current situation? Maybe you found the perfect game to pass the time. Perhaps you hum a specific song while you wash your hands. Or maybe you learned how to cook your new favorite meal.
Share with us and your fellow Mooties below.
We will get through this - together.
Me and the boys in quarantine
Yay no school
Have nice day
I'm very bored and have to do my school work so ask me legit anything and I will respond with honest answers
Looking for a serious Clan to join
Hey people I’m looking for a serious clan to join one that knows what they’re doing and one thats kinda big. I’ll do tryouts if necessary. I’m really good at cod whether it’s Warzone or multiplayer. Again I can do any tryouts just let me know I really need a clan to help me grow as a content creator and streamer.
I said this a couple months ago and I’ll say it again
We need more fighting game lounges. It’s bad enough there’s only four
How do I equip my badge I bought?
I'm new to moot and have no idea how to do this.
The Daily Moot: April Fools in the Gaming World!
1. April Fools Day
It’s April Fools Day and there’s plenty of shenanigans going around in your favorite games. Overwatch decided to add googly eyes to all of its heroes as well as to many ultimate abilities (like Hanzo’s dragon). Meanwhile, Rockstar decided to bring Christmas in April and covered the worlds of GTA Online and Red Dead Online in a blanket of snow. Let us know down below what some of your favorite April Fools gags are!
2. Xbox Series X No Audio Port
The Xbox Series X will have no optical audio port. Considering how cheap it would be to include, this seems like a very strange omission. Phil Spencer explained the decision by saying that it is a matter of “marginal cost,” explaining that while it may only cost them $2 to include, the cost adds up when considering that they might sell up to 100 million units. Spencer also mentioned that Xbox is working with headphone manufacturers to develop headsets that will be able to work without an audio port. While this may seem like a decent workaround, this likely means that most users will end up having to purchase a new headset for the console.
3. No Bethesda Showcase
After yesterday’s cancellation of QuakeCon 2020, many fans expected that Bethesda would follow the footsteps of their competitors and do a digital showcase instead. Unfortunately, it seems these hopes were unfounded. Bethesda announced today that they will not be doing any digital showcases to make up for the lack of QuakeCon and E3. Instead, they will be releasing information over time and are expected to show off some of Arkane's Deathloop and Tango Gameworks' Ghostwire: Tokyo in the coming months.
4. Ubisoft Giveaways
Ubisoft is giving back during the pandemic, giving away a series of free games to keep you occupied while on lockdown. You can expect a series of giveaways during April, some of which will be games you can keep while others will likely just be trials. You can claim the free games directly from Uplay. The first offering is Rayman Legends which is available from today until April 4. As long as you claim the game before April 4 you’ll be able to keep it forever.
5. Epic Games Houseparty App
Epic Games believes there is a smear campaign going on against their Houseparty chat app. After allegations that the app was harvesting and selling users’ data, Epic Games has thrown up a $1 million bounty to anyone who can provide proof of these allegations. Many accusers seem to point at untrust towards Epic investor Tencent, but Epic CEO Tim Sweeny asserted that he is the sole controlling shareholder and that Tencent and other investors have no access to Epic or Houseparty data.
Why is Everbody's Names Backwards?
I've seen Skullkidfan, Royalty, Zanestar, and everyone else's names backwards. Moot explain.
1. Deleting Private Messages
"I’ve found that when I am trying to delete the messages I currently have open, it deletes not the one that I want but one that is like two or three rows down. Also, it would be cool to have a select feature for deleting things."
2. Read Reciepts, Typing Indicators..
"The direct messaging system is old news. We need new software about that."
3. Message Requests
''The reason why I thought of this is because it would be good to have some sort of sorting system for Dms ie. Important - not important. It would also be cool to edit your own reply bot. This is also for people who don’t want to receive DMs but someone needs to get in contact with them."
Hopefully GudGuySolid doesn't care I reposted his content. But he has a point. We need some better Direct Messaging. And another one from me.
CALLING! WHY CANNOT GROUPS AND LFGs CALL EACH OTHER! some ppl use consule, some use the game chat, some use Discord! Lets just agree to Moot.
So what do you guys think about the new changes to Moot? Also, is it just for April fools?
Because I like this update.
You know, the new post and comment liking animation and my favourite, the search bar and shop and achievements buttons at the top of my feed.
Moot can you fix your coding?
My name wasnt changed with the April Fools joke. I just want to join in the fun 😰😰😰
❤love you all❤
What's the next giveaway gonna be?
I have a question for any mod or admin
Is there a way when you run out of user name changes can you somehow buy one with coins
The Daily Moot: Modern Warfare 2 Remastered
1. Modern Warfare 2 Remastered
As predicted by a recent series of leaks, the remastered campaign for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 surprise launched today. The game is a standalone release and only includes the single player campaign of Modern Warfare 2. For the time being at least, there will be no multiplayer modes in the game. Modern Warfare 2 Remastered costs $20 and is currently available exclusively for the PS4. The game is expected to release on PC and Xbox on April 30.
2. Fortnite Crash Pad
A huge update just hit Fortnite and it introduced a useful new item called the Crash Pad. The Crash Pad is a rare tool that has a trampoline-like effect, enabling players to break their fall or quickly gain height. The more you bounce on the Crash Pad, the higher you'll jump, easily allowing players to get in position to glide. Don't worry about fall damage either; if you jump off of a Crash Pad you won’t take any damage when landing.
3. PUBG April Fools Event
PUBG has announced an April Fools event called Fantasy Battle Royale. The new limited-time game mode will allow players to enjoy a fantasy RPG twist on the battle royale genre. The mode will have 4 playable classes and will be third person perspective only. Fantasy Battle Royale will be available for 1 week only from April 1-7. Check out the trailer below.
4. Artifact Reboot Update
Valve has just released new information regarding their Artifact Reboot plans. One of the most major announcements is that cards will not be sold and will only be earned through gameplay. This also means that cards will no longer be able to be bought and sold between players. This is obviously a massive change and represents a huge shift in Artifact’s identity. Expect more information in the near future as Valve’s begins focusing on Artifact in the wake of their successful Half-Life: Alyx release.
5. QuakeCon 2020 Cancelled
Bethesda has announced that QuakeCon 2020 will be cancelled. Although the convention wasn’t scheduled to take place until August, Bethesda said that the virus has caused too many “uncertainties” and has made planning the event impossible. This year would have marked the 25th anniversary of QuakeCon.
The Daily Moot: Valorant Beta, New Paper Mario
1. Valorant Closed Beta
Riot Games has just announced the launch of a closed beta for Valorant. The beta period will begin on April 7 and will be available for players in Europe, Canada, Russia, Turkey, and the US. Unfortunately it doesn't sound like getting an access key will be too easy. Riot will be giving away beta keys via sponsored Twitch streams, so make sure that you have a Riot account linked with your Twitch account if you want a chance to get early access. It's unclear how long the closed beta will last, but it will be great to finally get to see if Valorant is deserving of all the hype and praise its been receiving so far.
2. Mario Remasters, New Paper Mario
In honor of the 35th anniversary of Super Mario Bros, Nintendo has announced that they are planning to “re-release most of Super Mario's 35-year back catalogue this year." Some of the games you can expect to see include Super Mario Sunshine, Super Mario Galaxy, and Super Mario 64. Not only will there be remasters, but Nintendo also announced that they are releasing a new installment in the Paper Mario series on the Switch this year. While they haven’t unveiled any hard release dates yet, it sounds like 2020 will be a great year for Mario fans.
3. Mount & Blade 2: Bannerlord
Mount & Blade 2: Bannerlord is officially here! After 7 years of hype and anticipation, fans can finally get their hands on the latest game in the beloved action RPG series. Bannerlord is a prequel to the previous game, taking place 210 years before the events of Mount & Blade: Warband. Bannerlord is currently available in early access on Steam for $45.
4. GDC Relief Fund
To help support game developers who were impacted by the cancellation of GDC, Gamedev.world has created a 3-day fundraising event called the GDC Relief Fund. The event includes livestreams featuring developers, voice actors, and more, giving viewers an inside look into the game development industry. The fundraiser also includes a bundle of over 150 games, including titles such as Nuclear Throne, for a name-your-price donation, so it's a great opportunity to expand your library and help a good cause.
5. Castlevania Season 4
Netflix has announced that their animated Castlevania series will be returning for a 4th season. The series follows the adventures of an alcoholic vampire hunter and is loosely based on the classic video game Castlevania 3: Dracula’s Curse. Castlevania is easily one of the most influential video game franchises of all time so it’s nice to see the TV adaptation finding success as well.
Just a couple ideas...
Mooters should get notified for getting shouted out. Like if I shouted out someone then it would notify them and give them a link to the post.
This will also help if someone is witchhunting then the victim can report them and get the post removed.
Coronavirus/Quarantine style cosmetics
This is kinda far fetched but would be cool to see
Also some sort of event during this quarantine time would be perfect!
❤love you all❤
500 character bio extension gone?
I was saving up for the 500 character bio extension but it's literally just gone, what it purposefully taken out of moot? I really just want to finish my bio 😭
So I took notice;
Some people actually made new accounts just to cheat the system in the Q&A to either spam it for coins and selected answers and honestly that doesn't seem fair. I'm not salty at losing answers or anything but spamming the lounge there for your sake and not letting others answer is a bit selfish. 😅
Try to respect each other and not play against the system, please, I'm asking politely. It just isn't nice. Thanks and have a good day. 💜

The Daily Moot: Corona Relief Done Quick
1. Corona Relief Done Quick
Games Done Quick, a speedrunning charity fundraiser, has announced a new event next month called Corona Relief Done Quick. Corona Relief Done Quick will be an online-only event from April 17-19 and 100% of the donations will go to Direct Relief. Unfortunately, this new event comes at the cost of Summer Games Done Quick being postponed. SGDQ will now take place in August and all previously accepted applicants will have to reapply to participate. If you’re a speedrunner and want to play some video games for a good cause, applications to participate in Corona Relief Done Quick are open from now until April 2.
2. Last Oasis
Last Oasis, a “Nomadic Survival MMO” developed by Donkey Crew, just launched in early access and instantly became the top-selling game on Steam. In Last Oasis, players must build “Walkers” which act as both your transportation and your base of operations. Unfortunately, the game’s immediate popularity meant that the launch didn’t go as smoothly as hoped, with many players getting disconnected from the game due to server issues. Donkey Crew released a statement saying that they are working “around the clock” to fix the problems, and have already put out multiple hotfixes to address connection issues. You can check out the launch trailer for Last Oasis below.
3. Mount & Blade 2: Bannerlord
More than 7 years after it was first announced, Mount & Blade 2: Bannerlord is finally here. Originally expected to launch on March 31, developers decided to move the date forward and the game will now come out on March 30 in Early Access on Steam. Bannerlord will have a 10% discount during the first 2 weeks after launch, with an additional 10% discount for players who own the previous games.
4. GameStop Closing 300 Stores
Despite a profitable 4th quarter, GameStop has announced that they are permanently closing more than 300 stores. GameStop closed 321 locations last year and said that they plan to exceed that number this year. As part of their statement, GameStop mentioned that they want to reduce their density and that they plan to improve the value of the brand through “interactive digital media.”
5. Fallout 76 Wastelanders Delayed
The upcoming Wastelanders update to Fallout 76 has been delayed. In their statement, Bethesda said that because their team is now working from home, it was difficult to do proper testing, and that the delay would push the release date back from April 7 to April 14. The Wastelanders update is expected to be enormous and will completely change the game, revamping the original main quest, changing the dialogue system, and adding human NPCs to the game.
The Daily Moot: Animal Crossing Bunny Day
1. Animal Crossing Bunny Day
Animal Crossing: New Horizons has just announced “Bunny Day,” their inaugural Spring celebration. The event will take place from April 1-12 and will feature a visit from Zipper T. Bunny. You can expect to take part in classic Easter festivities such as the Egg Hunt Challenge and use your skills in the kitchen to make special egg dishes. Let us know how you're liking Animal Crossing: New Horizons so far and check out the trailer below for more details on Bunny Day.
2. Valorant Sage Showcase
Valorant just released the latest character showcase, this time featuring Sage. Sage is a support character who uses orbs to heal and create walls, and can bring enemies back to life with her ultimate ability. She seems to have a pretty strong kit overall, bringing an incredible amount of utility to her team. Check out the gameplay reveal below to see Sage in action.
3. Epic Games Free Games
It’s Thursday which means Epic is giving away another batch of games for their weekly freebies. This week’s games include World War Z, Figment, and Tormentor x Punisher. The free games can be claimed via the Epic Games Store and are available from now until April 2. As long as you claim the games before April 2, you’ll be able to keep them forever.
4. Nintendo Direct Mini
Nintendo released a 28-minute Nintendo Direct Mini today unveiling some of their plans for the near future. Some of the announcements in today’s reveal included a new character for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate and the release date for Xenoblade Chronicles Definitive Edition (May 29th). You can watch the full video below.

The Daily Moot: 60 Years of Sega
1. Sega 60th Anniversary
Sega is celebrating its 60th anniversary and has just launched a new website to take you through its incredible journey. Founded in the 1960s, Sega first began its foray into the world of gaming in 1964 when the company began producing commercial arcade equipment. Sega’s first home gaming console, the SG-1000, was released in 1983 and sold over 160,000 units in its first year. Since then, Sega has gone on to produce some of the best and most well-known games of all time, including modern day titles like the Yakuza series and classics like Sonic the Hedgehog. Check out their 60th anniversary website below to relive some of the magic.
2. Silent Hill Reboot Rumor Debunked
Rumors have been circulating around about a potential Silent Hill reboot. Konami originally played coy when asked about the leaks a few months ago, saying that the company "could not share anything at this point.” Unfortunately, it seems that any plans of a new Silent Hill game have been scrapped. In their official statement yesterday, Konami said that they are “aware of all the rumors and reports but can confirm that they are not true.” It looks like fans of the horror genre will have to keep waiting.
3. YouTube Video Quality
YouTube has announced that they will be reducing their default video quality worldwide in an effort to combat the increased bandwidth usage by users who are staying home due to the coronavirus. Streaming services of all types have seen a large uptick in usage and video streaming now accounts for more than 60% of total internet downstream volume. YouTube videos will now all default to standard definition, but users can still manually increase the resolution if they choose to do so.
4. GDC 2020 Talks Released
The GDC 2020 talks and lectures have now been released on Twitch and the GDC Vault. These are the pre-recorded talks that were livestreamed after GDC’s initial conference dates were postponed. The talks are available for free for all viewers and cover topics ranging from the business of selling games, to machine learning for gaming, to mental health.
5. Avalanche Studios New Game
Avalanche Studios, creators of Rage 2, Just Cause, and Generation Zero, just released a teaser for an unnamed new game. The upcoming game will be the first game released under Avalanche’s new sub-sudio called Systemic Reaction. Systemic Reaction is designed to operate as a self-publishing brand to “better mirror its unique offering,” and is composed of the same development team that created Generation Zero. Check out the trailer below.
Tell me why this is happening

The Daily Moot: Big Modern Warfare/Warzone Update!
1. Modern Warfare/Warzone Update
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and Warzone are both getting some huge updates today. A new dog-wielding Operator, Talon, is headed to both game modes. Modern Warfare will be getting a new 6v6 map called Khandor Hideout which offers "long sight lines and interior spaces to complement diverse combat ranges." Warzone is getting 4 new weapons, the 725, MK2 Carbine, .50 GS, and EBR-14, which can be found across Verdansk. The update is expected to go live tonight at 11pm Pacific Time.
2. Minecraft Educational Tools
Minecraft has announced that it will be offering free in-game educational tools to help students learn from home. Minecraft: Education Edition will allow players to explore the inside of the human eye and the International Space Station, as well as learn useful skills such as coding. Each educational opportunity has its own world and comes complete with lesson plans that include things such as build challenges and puzzles. All of the educational worlds are launching today and are free to download from now until June 30.
3. Free Hearthstone Decks
Starting on March 26, Hearthstone will be giving away free decks to new and returning players. Players that have been away for at least 4 months will receive a deck for a class of their choice consisting of cards from the Year of the Dragon set. Blizzard hopes that the free decks will “help players feel empowered to jump right in and experience the latest of what Hearthstone has to offer.”
4. Unity Learn Premium Free
Ever wanted to make your own video game? Now is the perfect opportunity to learn Unity, which is easily one of the most popular game engines on the planet and has been used to create games such as Hollow Knight, Escape from Tarkov, and Cuphead. Unity is currently giving away 3 months of Unity Learn Premium, their professional-grade instructional videos. These videos are designed to teach users how to create a video game step-by-step and include valuable skills such a coding in C#.
5. Plague Inc. New Game Mode
A new game mode is coming to Plague Inc. and it’s pretty much the exact opposite of the current game. Instead of trying to destroy the world with your ever-evolving pathogen, the new game mode will have players trying to save the world from a deadly disease. The new mode is being developed "with the help of experts from the World Health Organisation, the Global Outbreak Alert and Response Network and more," in an attempt to make it as realistic and informative as possible. The game mode will be free for all players, but a release date has yet to be announced.
Is anyone else’s rewards for logging in not showing up?
Im just trying to get my Moot Tickets for logging in and it won’t even show up. I’ve tried uninstalling and reinstalling the app and refreshing the page but nothing’s happening.
The Daily Moot: Half-Life Alyx Launches!
1. Half-Life: Alyx
Half-Life is finally back! Today’s launch of Half-Life: Alyx marks the first return in the Half-Life franchise since Half-Life 2: Episode 2 released more than a decade ago in 2007. While fans will no doubt still be awaiting Half-Life 3, the VR-exclusive Alyx will undoubtedly sate the players who have powerful enough rigs to run the game. Early reviews for the game have been overwhelmingly positive, marking Half-Life’s return to dominance. Half-Life: Alyx is available exclusively on PC.
2. Legends of Runeterra Changes
Riot’s collectible card game Legends of Runeterra is undergoing some changes. These changes are designed to make it easier for players to get new cards and to reduce the cost of extra content like the Expedition draft mode. Weekly Vault rewards have been improved across the board, offering more and better loot as well as a guaranteed Expedition token for level 2 vaults and above. Riot has also removed the experience decay from PvP matches meaning that players will be able to level up much more quickly. Overall these changes should make it easier for new players and veterans alike to get new cards and quickly build competitive decks.
3. Warzone Surpasses 30M Players
In just 10 days since its launch, Call of Duty: Warzone has already surpassed 30 million players. While its status as a free-to-play game combined with the lockdown due to the coronavirus are certainly contributing to the player numbers, this is still an impressive feat nonetheless. In fact, these numbers are competitive with Apex Legend’s launch which took the world by storm. For reference, Apex Legends had 25 million players in its first week and over 50 million players in its first month. Do you think Warzone can beat those numbers?
4. Artifact 2
Despite the catastrophic failure that was the release of Valve’s TCG Artifact, all signs are pointing to a re-release of the game. Valve has apparently been working on the game nonstop and said they want to “try again” and are“getting ready to release” a revamped version of the game. Valve was apparently very surprised when the game flopped initially; we’ll have to see if they were able to learn from their mistakes and find better success in their second attempt.
5. GameStop Closing All Storefronts
After first trying to label themselves as an “essential” business amid the coronavirus lockdown, GameStop has now announced that they will be closing all US storefronts. Although the storefronts will be closed, GameStops will still be operating on a digital level and will remain open for curbside pickup.
Moot gods!! Don’t swipe past please!
I noticed that there is no lounge for Ori and the Blind Forest or Ori and the Will of the Wisps. Please consider adding one. Thanks!
I think we should see what our deleted post are (if a mod gets rid of it) so we can see if that reason is justified because I think I posted only Twice about an ireland flag badge but I dont know I'm gonna try to ask them directly but you know hopefully they take this suggestion in consideration
The Daily Moot: Animal Crossing: New Horizons
1. Animal Crossing: New Horizons
Animal Crossing: New Horizons is finally here! The first main-series Animal Crossing game in nearly 8 years, New Horizons has easily been one of the most anticipated Nintendo games of 2020. The real-time life sim has opened to rave reviews and currently boasts an impressive score of 91 on Metacritic. Animal Crossing: New Horizons has both single-player and multiplayer game modes and is available exclusively on the Nintendo Switch. Check out our Animal Crossing lounge below to stay updated and find new friends to play with!
2. Xbox Live and Nintendo Online Outages
Both Xbox Live and Nintendo Online have suffered outages due to increased traffic on the services. As many people are staying home due to the Covid-19 coronavirus, gaming has seen a huge boost of players as it offers one of the best forms of indoor entertainment. Playerbase numbers are up across the board and it’s unlikely that they’ll be going down any time soon. Hopefully Xbox Live and Nintendo Online can quickly make some changes to their infrastructure to ensure a stable connection for their users.
3. YouTube and Netflix Reducing Video Quality
YouTube and Netflix are both reducing video quality in Europe. This is in an effort to reduce stress on the systems and prevent overload outages which have affected other services such as Xbox Live and Nintendo Online. Although it may seem unfortunate to have the video quality reduced, this will likely result in an overall better user experience as it should prevent any lag that would occur due to high traffic and bandwidth usage. As of right now, this preventative measure is expected to last 30 days and only affects users in Europe.
4. Riot Boosting Server Capacity
There’s a very clear theme for today: people are staying home, playing games and watching videos, which is causing increased stress on servers. Riot Games explained that North American League of Legends servers were hitting 90% capacity which caused log-in queues and extended queue times. In an effort to combat the stress, Riot has announced that they are boosting the servers to increase the maximum capacity of players.
5. GDC Rescheduled
GDC 2020 has officially been rescheduled. After postponing the original Game Developers Conference due to the Covid-19 coronavirus, GDC 2020 will now take place this summer from August 4-6 at the Moscone Center in San Francisco, California. While some of the content that was planned for GDC has been released online (such as the IGF Awards), there will no doubt be plenty of great new content unveiled at the event later this year. Furthermore, GDC organizers have assured fans that GDC Summer will feature an immersive two-day expo show and “retain the same high level of expert-led talks as the traditional GDC.”
Anyone else having problems with the Q&A?
For some odd reason whenever I try to post an answer, it never gets posted. Is it because I post there too much or something? I just want to know so that way I can dim it down a little, at least that way I know that I didn't break anything, I tend to break a lot of sites and games without meaning to. If someone can please give me a heads up on what I may have did wrong that'd be awesome, thanks so much! <3
Thanks Moot =)
So almost every Reddit page for fortnite has now banned me for promoting a give away. I'm glad I found this app and can speak freely and give anything I want to whoever i want 10/10 will recommend to all of my friends
I need help.
When I post a meme it doesn’t get put in the meme category because the purple meme at the top doesn’t show up and it puts it in the lounge. Can some help me with this?
The Daily Moot: DOOM Eternal is Here!
1. DOOM Eternal
DOOM Eternal is finally here! One of the most anticipated games of the year, DOOM fans have been waiting for Eternal for nearly 4 years. Described as a “celebration of excess in sin, violence, scale, speed, and volume,” early reviews for the game have all been overwhelmingly positive. DOOM Eternal launches today at 9pm Pacific Time in the United States and at 11pm GMT in Europe.
2. GDC and IGF Awards
After the postponement of this year’s GDC, organizers decided to host certain parts of the convention online. Thankfully, one of those parts was the annual Game Developers Conference Choice Awards and the Independent Game Festival Awards. For the GDCA, the stacked field included games such as Control, Disco Elysium, and Baba is You, but it was ultimately the fan-favorite Untitled Goose Game that earned the title of Game of the Year. For the IGF Awards, the big winner was A Short Hike which took home both the Seumas McNally Grand Prize as well as the Audience Award.
3. Get Watch Dogs and The Stanley Parable for Free
This week’s free games from the Epic Games Store are both fantastic goliaths. Watch Dogs is a third-person action game where you play as a masterful hacker on a quest for vengeance. The Stanley Parable is a strange first-person narrative experience that, although undeniably odd, is universally acclaimed and has earned a cult-classic status among fans. You can download both Watch Dogs and The Stanley Parable for free from the Epic Games Store from now until March 26. As long as you claim the games before March 26, they are yours to keep forever.
4. Tekken 7 Fahkumram
A new character is headed to the Tekken 7 arena. Making his first appearance in a Tekken game, Fahkumram is a muscle-bound fighter covered in scars. Once considered a local hero in Thailand and a Muay Thai legend, his career was halted after he was struck by lightning when he was 12 years old. Fahkumram was able to overcome the adversity, eventually becoming a Muay Thai champion by the age of 18, but his personal life was still riddled with hardship. Fahkumram will join the Tekken 7 roster as part of DLC 14&15 on March 24. Check out the trailer below.
5. City: Skylines Expansion
Popular city builder game City: Skylines is getting a new expansion next week called Sunset Harbor. The expansion will introduce fishing to the game which will allow players to control fishing boats and fish farms, adding a new commercial element to the game. The expansion will also include 5 new maps, each featuring different climates. The Sunset Harbor expansion is expected to launch on March 26, although the price has yet to be revealed.

Why U made Unlike
why every person is spiteful, gives a dislike, but the name and notofication does not appear
I’m new to this app and can’t figure out why there are so many bubble notifications on the app icon. I can’t find what they’re referring to!
Is my app broken?
First of all I can’t buy anything from the moot store I can select anything to buy and second the stats on the game I play has never refreshed so it isn’t accurate for my skill and the characters I play at all so is my app just bugged?
Increased amount of bots on the app.
There are more and more bots being on this app, and its annoying.
Some say they are Team Moot, Employees, and are asking for email address, passwords, etc.
How can this be stopped on Moot and how can us, the Mooties, stay safe?
The Daily Moot: PlayStation 5 Reveal
1. PlayStation 5 Reveal
The PlayStation 5 specs have finally been revealed! For processing power, the PS5 will feature 8x Zen 2 Core CPUs at 3.5GHz and a 10.28 TFLOP custom GPU with 36 CUs at 2.23GHz. While these numbers may seem a bit lower than the Xbox Series X specs, Sony explained that the PS5's custom RDNA 2 GPU is optimized and "improved in ways beyond teraflop count, such that it will offer power beyond that expected from it.”
The console’s internal storage will be a custom 825GB SSD. Again, Sony has explained that the SSD has been modified to provide extremely quick launch times and to eliminate long patch installs. 825GB seems like far too little storage space for a next-gen console but unlike the Xbox Series X, additional storage can be added using off-the-shelf components. Now that both consoles have been revealed, which one are you looking forward to the most?
2. Overwatch New Hero
Overwatch just revealed their upcoming new hero, Echo. While we don’t know too much about Echo, we do know that she was designed by the creator of the Omnics in order to “help the world.” Echo has technically been in the game for years, appearing in cinematics as well as on map Route 66. The launch of the new character will bring the roster total to 32, although it’s unclear whether Echo will be an attacker, defender, or support. Check out the reveal and origin story below.
3. Assassin’s Creed Odyssey Free Weekend
Assassin’s Creed Odyssey is having a free weekend from March 19-22. While you won’t be able to keep the game after March 22, dedicated players should be able to beat the main storyline during the 4-day stretch. The game is available for pre-loading now so that it’s ready to play when the free weekend starts tomorrow. If you end up loving the game but aren’t able to finish it, you can take advantage of a 75% discount which will be available during the free weekend. The free weekend is available to all PC, PS4, and Xbox One players.
4. Blizzard DDoS Attack
Blizzard’s Battle.net had a rough day yesterday as players were unable to log into their accounts or had to sit through long queues in order to do so. For those that were lucky enough to log in, many were experiencing extremely high latency and were getting disconnected from their games. Blizzard has explained that this was the result of widespread DDoS attacks on the servers, primarily aimed at Call of Duty: Warzone. Blizzard is currently investigating the issue which was affecting players around the globe.
5. GameStop Cancels Midnight Releases
GameStop has announced that they are cancelling the midnight releases for DOOM Eternal and Animal Crossing: New Horizons. This is, of course, due to the Covid-19 coronavirus. GameStop has also decided to shut down all interactive gaming stations in their stores for the time being. While it may be unfortunate for those who like to collect physical copies of games, if you were hoping to be one of the first players to get their hands on DOOM Eternal or Animal Crossing: New Horizons, your best bet is to buy a digital copy.
