PTR 2.6.10 Testing Tips

As with previous PTRs, this testing period is only 2 weeks, so it's best to hit the ground running. Whether you’re a PTR veteran or newcomer, here are a few tips to get you off to the best possible start.

  • Because of the limited duration of this PTR, Blizzard ask that participants pick a particular portion of this update to focus on testing.
    • For example, if you're primarily a Wizard player, consider what changes impact the Wizard specifically. What you like best, what you think may still need adjustment, and what you'd want to see in the future (even if that may be beyond the scope of this patch) are all good questions to ask yourself.
  • Prior to the start of PTR 2.6.10, consider stocking up on items like Puzzle Rings and Bovine Bardiches. Having these available after you import your character can make any necessary PTR farming much faster!
  • Try to break things, the more we can break now, the better Blizzard will be able to launch a reliable patch!
  • When providing feedback, Blizzard ask that players concentrate less on a solution and more on your experience of the game. How did the changes make you feel? Was there something not quite right that you noticed? Did something seem wrong or insufficient? Suggestions are always welcome but identifying the issues themselves is most important.

Glaring mistakes and bugs in Diablo 3 Diablohub.com

Posted by DHAdmin on September 19th, 2020 at 12:19 pm

The most glaring mistakes and bugs in Diablo 3 from across the years

diablo iv

Rumors and teasers regarding Diablo 4 continue to rain down on us with increasing speed, suggesting that the long-awaited release might soon become a reality. That’s borne out to a certain extent by retailers like Game offering Diablo 4 for pre-order. As ever, it is likely that only a handful of those rumors will be true, at least in the initial release.

But what is it that gamers really want when developers spend years creating an update of a much-loved classic? The answer is simple, they want it to be everything its predecessor is, but that much better. If Diablo 4 is to achieve greatness, then, it needs to avoid the glaring bugs and errors that were part and parcel of Diablo 3. Let’s step into the Chamber of Horrors and examine the biggest elephant traps that the game has to avoid this time around.

Error 37

If you were playing Diablo 3 from the get-go in 2012, the phrase Error 37 is liable to cause a sinking feeling in the pit of your stomach. After all that anticipation, no sooner were we in the thick of the action than hundreds of gamers were confronted with that dreaded red box and the Error 37 server message. When Diablo 4 was announced at last year’s Blitzconn, Luis Barriga, the game’s director, acknowledged that the team would have to learn from the past.

He told reporters that the problem arose last time around due to the developers being reluctant to show too much during beta testing. He said: “We had a limited beta during Diablo 3. I think you will see us take a different approach here.”

Real money auction house

Conceptually, the idea of in-game trading between players is a good one. Done the right way, it adds a whole extra dimension to the game and the universe in which it operates. The key part of that phrase, however, is “the right way” and both gamers and developers are in agreement that the real money auction house of Diablo 3 was wide of the mark.

The downside, for the handful of people in the world who did not experience it themselves, was that gamers found themselves facing real-world financial losses. Now that is one thing in an online casino, where the whole objective is to offer a gaming experience for actual cash, but it led to all sorts of problems in Diablo.

The auction house was one of those ideas that seemed great on the drawing board. The real problem was what happened in Runescape, when gambling clans started to appear from every direction, using the game as a real-world money spinner. When the Diablo auction house showed signs of going the same way, the developers were right to pull it. Art Director Allen Adham says the team has some “pretty solid ideas” on how to incorporate a trading element into Diablo 4 that will not become a danger or a disruption to the gameplay itself.

Login issues

Less common than the Error 37 issues we mentioned earlier but even more frustrating was the Error 3006 that a substantial number of users encountered. This had the effect of throwing the gamer right out of the game and making it impossible to log back in.

Beginner's guide for playing World of Warcraft

Posted by DHAdmin on September 8th, 2020 at 1:15 pm

Playing WOW - a beginner's guide

esports desk

World of Warcraft is one of the biggest and most popular MMORPGs around the globe. It has been around for more than a decade now and it is one of the favourites for gamers worldwide. If you haven’t played the game yet, then the World of Azeroth awaits you with a thrilling adventure. Here are some of the tips that can be really useful for any beginner in World of Warcraft.

Check your PC System Requirement

Buying the game will cost you some money. Before going to buy it, its best to go to the game website and check for the minimum system requirements for the game. And then you can match it with your computer system configuration. One of the best things about the game though, is that the system requirements are very basic and most systems would be able to run the game comfortably. But it is always a good practise to confirm is your system is lacking any of the areas and then upgrade your system if that’s an option.

Use the Free Trial

Not all gamers like the same kind of games. It may happen that you don’t like a game which is really popular. And buying the game even before knowing that can end up being a waste of money. Finding just the right game for a gamer is like winning a progressive jackpot. Once you’re done with the trial version, you’d know if it’s the right game for you and can then buy it. It generally doesn’t matter how good a gamer you are. Until you are really interested in the game, you would not want to spend your time on it. You can rather look for alternatives more suited to your gaming style.

Choosing the Right Server

Once you start playing, one of the things that all players would tell you is to find the right server for yourself. Going for a random server may not be a wise decision. You wouldn’t want to go for a server for beginners and also not one for experts. The crowded servers also don’t allow you to truly and comfortably explore the World of Azeroth. But you should also avoid server with very less players because they can turn out to be boring. A healthy crowd should generally be preferred. One of the things you can do is ask your friends and join them on their server so that the game is more fun. You may also want to keep an eye out for the great tournaments organized by WOW for gamers worldwide.

Choose a Character and start exploring

Next step is to choose your character. There are 2 factions in WoW, the Hordes and the Alliance and each has 7 playable characters. You can choose the character you like and then go on to choose a Warcraft Class from a set of 12 classed on the game. You can then start playing and get comfortable with the character you have chosen before you start playing full throttle. Another part of the game is to choose professions and specialization. Once you are done with all this. You are set to start a great gaming experience.

The Top 5 Cross Platform Games Of 2020

Posted by DHAdmin on September 2nd, 2020 at 2:08 pm

Cross platform support is now a very essential thing for most of the multiplayer games, especially in 2020, and when games come with this feature, players are always in love with them. So, the article is going to focus on the best games that you can play across platforms in the current year.

Now, consoles have been the exclusive platform for games for a very long time, and the popularity of consoles grew because of that exclusive setting, where games are designed only for the consoles. So, in order to enjoy those games, the player must buy the consoles they are designed for. Because of console exclusives, people now tend to select between consoles, preferring some over the others.

One area that doesn’t get the recognition it perhaps deserves is perhaps online slots and casino games. These games must be designed to be used across a multitude of platforms, from desktops to smartphones (with dozens being released every year). For anyone looking to play some of the latest games, you can use sites here, which all offer top casino gaming software to their players.

But it is now very easy for today's players to own multiple consoles and platforms, and they seek to sync their games over all those platforms. It does not end there; most players also like to enjoy these games with their friends, who may not have the same consoles as them. That is when the cross platform games come handy. This is why people that love multiplayer games appreciate cross platform games more.

Below Are the Top 5 Cross Platform Games Of 2020

Fortnite

fortnite game

This is one of the biggest names or phenomena in the world of computer games. Since Fortnite was released, it has had a very big influence in the gaming world, dominating the arena for a very long time. The player base that it has maintained for a very long time can only be achieved by very few games, and it doesn’t seem that the game is going to slow down any time soon. It offers KBM support on consoles, and that places it among the most easily accessible games in the entire list. Fortnite could be enjoyed on Switch, iOS, Android, and Mac, Xbox One and PS4.

PUBG

pubg game

When this game was launched in 2017, it set the world on fire, and gave the world the new genre known as Battle Royale. When PUBG was released, it stood as one of the most innovative games of the time. The core gameplay loop is very impressive. When you consider this, alongside the fact that it experiences constant meaningful and solid updates, you will realize that it is among the most memorable multiple player games you can ever play. The PUBG multiplayer game can be enjoyed on Switch, iOS, Android, Xbox One and PS4.

Street Fighter

Street fighter

The Street Fighter franchise is one of the most cherished in the gaming world. Since it came to the scene in the 1980s, it has taken and remained in the center stage of computer gaming. This franchise is all about classic fighting games and the game’s sustained popularity is based on the fact that it came with, and has maintained its cross platform feature. So, till today, lovers of Street Fighter can enjoy the title on PS4, PC and Xbox One.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare

Call of duty

The Call of Duty video/computer game franchise has dwelt on the first person shooter genre for much longer than other gaming franchises. It has become a household name in gaming with its first person shooter titles. The modern warfare and the warzone are the newest installments from the franchise, and they are all cross platform games. These two games are unique in their own way. Modern Warfare came with the type of quality you only expect to see in the Infinity Ward, while the Warzone came with the most exciting and entertaining brand of Battle Royale ever seen in games. Both games can be enjoyed on PS4, Xbox One and PC computers.

Rocket League

Rocket league

Rocket League stands above many other games, and has only a few true competitions in the gaming world. The entire gameplay, the fun, and other features of the game take it high above many others. It comes with a very simple concept. It is a game that involves football, but with cars that are powered by rockets. It succeeded in dwelling on a pitch that almost everybody will be interested in, and it is one that many people will be glad to spend time enjoying in the field. People can play Rocket League on multiple platforms, including PC, PS4, Xbox One and Switch.
