Kansas City Pioneers, Gen.G eliminated in wild VCT tournament

Jul 10, 2021

At the conclusion of a wild day in NA VCT Challengers Three closed qualifiers, Kansas City Pioneers and Gen.G have been eliminated from the tournament. The Pioneers had a solid run, defeating a Version1 team that qualified for VCT Masters Two: Reykjavik in the lower bracket, but unfortunately went up against Sentinels in the second round. Gen.G were close to upsetting Sentinels in the first round of the upper bracket, although ultimately were knocked to the lower bracket. They defeated an upstart Rise team in the first round of the lower bracket before falling to Envy 0-2 in the second round. The losses eliminate both teams from the tournament. They’ll have to wait until the next open qualifier event for another shot at Challengers Finals. Kansas City have nothing to be ashamed of. They were knocked out by the best VALORANT team in the world, and knocked out a strong Version1 team. Gen.G might need to return to the drawing board in a few elements. A close first map with Envy was fine, but it seemed like they never showed up to the second map. While there’s no immediate, glaring cause for concern, Gen.G has a lot of talent, and if they iron their issues out they’ll be a top four team in no time. The top four finishers in the event punch their tickets directly to the closed qualifier. KCP and Gen.G just barely missed the cut. Sentinels, Envy, 100 Thieves, and XSET will skip the next open qualifier tournament in its entirety. PlatoAi. Web3 Reimagined. Data Intelligence Amplified. Mongolian team Astra Academy, which won the PUBG Mobile Pro League (PMPL) South Asia Championship last month, hasn’t been invited to the World Invitational (PMWI), according to a since-deleted Instagram post by the organization. The PMWI will be divided into an East and West region with 16 teams being invited into each of them. It will take place from July 22 to 25 and has a $3 million charity prize pool that is powered by Gamers Without Borders. Astra Academy is a relatively new and lesser-known team, although it won the spring split of the Club Open (PMCO) for the Wildcard region to qualify for the South Asian championship. The underdog team put up a surprising performance in the championship and finished in first place over the dominant ZEUS Esports. While invites are likely being sent on the basis of popularity, not inviting the champions of a major region is certainly surprising. “We are really demotivated on this move, but let’s hope for the best,” the organization wrote in an Instagram post. This isn’t the first time a controversy like this is erupting in the South Asian region. Last year, the season one champions of the PMPL South Asia, GXR Cetlz wasn’t one of the 12 invited teams to the second season. The organization had told Dot Esports then that it found this “unfair.” Currently, Tencent hasn’t revealed the invited teams or the format of the PMWI 2021. With the competition just over a week away, the company will likely make the announcement soon. PlatoAi. Web3 Reimagined. Data Intelligence Amplified. Online games look like they never sleep since they tend to be up and running most of the time. Though game developers try to schedule server maintenance whenever a decent portion of their player base is asleep, there can be times where the servers go offline due to unforeseeable circumstances. Patches filled with new content can introduce new players to the game while rekindling the love in players’ hearts who’ve taken a break. When that’s the case the servers may not be able to handle the load and go down. No game is immune to this and Ashes of Creation isn’t an exception. Aside from overloading the servers can also be down due to local outages in where they’re located, leaving players wondering when they’d be able to log back into Ashes of Creation. When the servers are down, you won’t be able to log into the game, which can even make you question if something’s wrong with your home connection. Here’s how you can find out about Ashes of Creation’s server status. Check out the official sources Nowadays, most developers host their own websites to highlight the server status of their game. Ashes of Creation is one of them and you can check how the servers are doing through here . Once you load into the webpage, the current status of the servers will be on the top while you’ll also be able to check out past incidents. You can also take a look at web services’ statuses which can be crucial at times. Even if the main servers are operating well, account services going down can cause other errors to appear. Alternatively, you can also check out the social media channels of Ashes of Creation . When there are scheduled maintenances or outages that are affecting the majority of the player base, Intrepid Studios keeps the players up-to-date through various status updates. Following the game’s social media channels will also allow you to keep up with all the other events and Ashes of Creation related content. Visit community hubs If the servers are down, fans who are as passionate as you about Ashes of Creation will be the first ones to report the problem. Community hubs like Reddit will be the first stop of such players and there should be multiple threads popping up whenever there’s an error that prevents players from logging into Ashes of Creation. In rare cases where there are alternative solution methods to fix errors that prevent players from logging into the game, you’ll also be able to find solutions since players tend to share fixes that work for them. When the servers are fine, but you’re still unable to log into the game and there aren’t any users reporting an outage, you can also be the first one to start a discussion. Other players or community managers can help you get back into Ashes of Creation as soon as possible. If you’re looking for a more official source, Ashes of Creation’s official forums can be your next stop. You’ll need to register for an account before you can post, however, which doesn’t take longer than a few minutes. Community managers and Intrepid Studio officials are also more likely to reply on the official forums, it’ll be a better place to get answers right from the source. What if the servers are up and you still can’t log into Ashes of Creation? When servers are working just fine, but you still can’t seem to get into Ashes of Creation, you may need to try out a few troubleshooting steps. You can start off by troubleshooting your home network. Reset your router and PC to potentially fix internet service provider (ISP) and software related hiccups. A better way will be through trying out a completely different connection. Using your phone’s hotspot feature will be the perfect way to do this, but try not to download any large patches to preserve your mobile data plan. If you’re able to log into Ashes of Creation with your cellular data, you’ll need to call your ISP and see whether they can detect anything on their hand. ISP personnel will have access to all the diagnostic data on your network and will be able to see if there’s anything on their hand that’s causing you to have connectivity problems. When the servers are down, you’ll have no choice but to wait for Intrepid Studios to roll out a fix. After the servers are back online, the news will spread like wildfire on social media or the official forums of Ashes of Creation. You could also try to get into the game over and over again, but that can turn into a waste of time in cases where it takes more than a few hours for servers to get back online. If you’re looking for an alternative way to scratch the Ashes of Creation itch that you had before you were trying to log into the game, you can spend the downtime studying the game through guides and written content which will help you get better at the game. You can test out all the new tricks and tips you’ve learned over this period when you log back into the game and repeat the process whenever you want to play but can’t log into the servers. PlatoAi.

Before the start of the week, Golden Guardians looked like a team hunting for answers halfway through the 2021 Summer Split. For example, they opted into yet another roster swap this past week when they acquired veteran top laner Licorice to replace Solo, looking to bring more experience into the lineup in another effort to push themselves into a playoff spot. Before the players loaded onto the Rift, things looked bleak for Licorice’s GG debut, as they were set to face off against the best team in the league, 100 Thieves. Entering week six, the Thieves were the hottest roster in the LCS with an impressive eight-game winning streak. The changes they made—Abbedagge filling in the mid lane and Reapered taking over as head coach—were clearly working, as they played with the most confidence and cohesion among the top rosters. In the game, the Guardians showed off some great teamfighting and decision-making that stemmed off some aggressive play from their support-jungler duo in Chime and Iconic. After grabbing two quick kills, 100T would try to fight back, but Licorice would become a menace on Gwen heading into the mid-to-late game. He ended the day with six kills, three assists, and only one death, and even picked up two solo kills on Ssumday. GG played with confidence throughout most of the engages they found, and even though they were the heavy underdogs, they executed their skirmishes like a top organization. 100T, on the other hand, weren’t able to utilize their Diana-Yasuo combo to its full potential, with their opponents beating them to the punch with their own engage. With this win, Golden Guardians will now look to make a hard push for the playoffs in the second half of the split. They are tied with CLG for the eighth and final spot in the postseason, but with wins like this, we could see the boys in gold and black sneak their way into a lower bracket berth. PlatoAi.

The biggest of these is the new Evo Ground mode, Mission Ignition. It’s currently live in the game until Sept. 6. In this, a technology and energy company DynaHex has made a lot of transformations to the Erangel map. These have been done to use the map for scientific research. The transformations in Erangel have been made to Pochinki, Georgopol, School, Military Base, Yasnaya Polyana, and Mylta Power. Other dynamic elements, hyperlines, and air conveyors have also been added in this mode. PUBG Mobile has also collaborated with American electric vehicle company Tesla in patch 1.5. As a part of this, a Tesla Gigafactory has been constructed on Erangel. Players can assemble a self-driving Model Y here and also other vehicles like the Cybertruck. Once the APK and OBB files have been downloaded, locate them on your device. Click on the APK file to launch the installation process. You may need to enable the installation of apps from unknown sources on your device. On Android 11, you can find this in Settings > Apps and notifications > Special app access > Install unknown apps. Once the APK file has been installed, copy the OBB file to the following folder: Android > OBB > com.pubg.imobile. If this folder doesn’t exist, create it with the same name. After completing these steps, open and enjoy PUBG Mobile’s latest update. You will still be required to download the maps and other assets in the game. PlatoAi. Web3 Reimagined.
