The Daily Moot (11/5/18)

News Picks

1. Fortnite’s Cube Explodes, Throws Players into a Void

Moot: News Picks - The Daily Moot (11/5/18) image 2

Epic Games announced a special in-game event yesterday and boy was it something. Players who loaded into matches at 10 am PDT got to experience something unlike anything else. The cube at the center of Leaky Lake began to spin before it exploded into a bright light. This sent players into an endless white void, until they eventually reappeared above Loot Lake’s original location, which has once again transformed into something new.

  2. Overwatch Reveals a New Hero Named ‘Ashe’   While some Blizzard’s announcements at BlizzCon we’re controversially bad (cough, Diablo, cough), their Overwatch one did not disappoint. Blizzard introduced a new damage Hero named Ashe at BlizzCon on Friday. Ashe’s primary weapon is a single fire rifle that has a sweet scope on it. Ashe also has a shotgun with a knockback on it which she can use to disrupt enemies or reposition herself. But Ashe’s coolest ability is her ultimate, which summons Bob to fight for her. Check out the reveal trailer below!

  3. Invictus Gaming is the new League of Legends World Champion   The League of Legends World Championship had some high stakes as China’s Invictus Gaming faced off against Europe’s Fnatic. For the first time in a long time, the world champion was going to be a non-Korean team. Despite the high hopes of many Western fans, Invictus Gaming dominated the finals and won 3-0.

  4. Heavy Assault Rifle Coming to Fortnite This Week   The Heavy Assault Rifle will be coming to Fortnite’s battle royale mode sometime this week. Most people probably won’t call it the Heavy Assault Rifle for very long though, as it is basically just an AK47. Epic Games has said the weapon will be “most useful when fired in short bursts” which suggests it will have some hefty recoil to it.

  5. ‘Serral’ Becomes First non-Korean to win StarCraft 2 World Championship Series   Joona “Serral” Sotala won the StarCraft 2 World Championship Series this past weekend at Blizzcon, becoming the first non-Korean to ever win the competition. The Finnish Zerg player was a heavy favorite coming into the finals against “Stats,” as Serral had gone undefeated during the tournament’s first week. Serral won the final best of seven series by a score of 4-2.

  6. YouTube Might be Coming to Switch on November 8th   YouTube is not currently on the Switch, but that might change this week. Recently, people who search Nintendo’s website have found suggestions for a YouTube app native to the Switch that says it will be available on November 8th. It would certainly make sense for YouTube to come to the Switch. This would represent a big step for the Nintendo Switch toward being the complete entertainment package. All that’s left now is to cross our fingers and wait.
