1. Bungie Splits from Activision, Takes Destiny with Them

Moot: News Picks - The Daily Moot (1/10/19) image 18

Bungie has announced that it is splitting with Activision, bringing an early end to their ten year publishing partnership surrounding the Destiny franchise. Bungie will acquire full rights and publish all future content independently. Destiny 2 will remain on BattleNet for PC players following the departure.

  2. PUBG Bans a Dozen Pros and 30,000 other Players for Cheating   Last month, PUBG conducted a global investigation of all currently active pro PUBG players to see if any of them were cheating. Turns out, a handful were. PUBG just discovered a very hard to detect cheat that scanned data being sent to the servers, instead of game files themselves, which enabled the cheater to effectively have radar vision. PUBG caught and suspended 10 players for cheating and 2 more players who knew their teammates were cheating but said nothing. These players have been banned for 3 years and future pro competitors will be screened more thoroughly moving forward.

  3. Red Dead Online gets a more Genuine Battle Royale Mode   Rockstar has said they will adapt Red Dead Online to match what the playerbase wants to see, and apparently the players want to see more battle royale. A new game mode called Gun Rush came to Red Dead Online today which is truer to the usual Battle Royale style than the Make It Count game mode currently in RDO. In Gun Rush, up to 32 players will gather weapons and ammo for a fight to death in an ever-shrinking play area.

  4. The Better Business Bureau Gives Epic Games an F   Epic Games just received an “F” rating from the Better Business Bureau, supposedly for not responding to customer complaints. The majority of the complaints have to do with customer service and ignoring refund requests. It should be HEAVILY EMPHASIZED that the Better Business Bureau is a private organization, not a government entity, and there is an EXTREME CORRELATION between companies that pay them money and companies that get good ratings. Have you ever had to interact with Epic Games customer support staff? If so, do you feel this rating is fair?

  5. Stan Lee Tribute Added to World of Warcraft   Azeroth’s biggest cities have always been full of fun Easter eggs for the most diligent World of Warcraft players. It was one of these players who noticed a new NPC (Non-Player Character) walking the halls of Stormwind Keep. The character is named ‘Stanley’ and he looks exactly like the late Stan Lee, of comic book fame. If looking like Stan Lee isn’t enough to confirm this is a direct tribute, Stanley actually shouts Excelsior! as he walks around. Nice touch, Blizzard.

  6. Old School Runescape gets a New Region in Today’s Update   In what is the first big update since the game went multiplatform late last year, Old School Runescape got a new region today. The Kebos Lowlands includes a new town called Brimstome, a new monster in the form of a hydra, a new slayer dungeon. There is even a new farming guild. Jagex has called this update the game’s most diverse since Old School Runescape launched in 2013.

    Super happy bungie left. Hopefully we’ll see destiny morph into what it was supposed to be. Or just a new one.

    I’m glad that Bungie is breaking up with Activision because Activision was slowly poisoning Bungie with its corporate greed. Maybe the Destiny franchise will stand a chance now.

    How is Red Dead Online? Any fun?

  • bobdalob LV.25 Rootin Tootin Jan 11, 2019, 05:48 PM

    It’s pretty fun but in its current state there isn’t too much to do, but it is also in beta as well. It will get tons better as time goes on, I have faith in rockstar.
