Fallout 4 – ”Crawl Out Through the Fallout”

”Crawl Out Through the Fallout” is the best way to describe the concept of this beautiful role-playing game masterpiece. With a lot of surprises, fantastic storyline, marvelous graphic performances, Fallout 4 offers the unique experience of surviving in the post-apocalyptic period. Like all previous versions, the player confronts hordes of evil and mutated creatures, as well as humans and robots. Certainly, the best thing is the storyline which follows player’s created character who starts searching for his long lost son. As always, the developer surprises its fans with adding huge improvements, and one of them is building your own settlement with your own settlers! Although this version of the game is a bit demanding when it comes to your system performance, it can be played on low-quality machines, but then be prepared not to see all of its visual beauty.

The game settles in fictional future of the United States which faced atomic war, with all its inhabitants closed underground in shelters called Vaults. As expected, all living creatures who were not hidden had faced the horrors of atomic mutations. Most of the “lucky” creatures are really enraged beasts who just need a player’s bullet to set them free of their misery. But on the other side, there’s good in this savage world. Mutated creatures who refused to follow their natural instinct of surviving as well as robots who didn’t obey orders of their creators (in game called ”Institute”) sooner or later come in contact with a player, offering their help with various possibilities. The most interesting thing about the storyline is that game has three possible endings which depend on player’s choices and his behavior while playing.

When it comes to characters, first of all, it’s important to say that it is completely made by the player’s choice, whether it is about character’s skills, weapons that player uses (players can modify and make his own weapon), clothes to wear, or the way the player will build and lead his settlement, and if all of this is not enough, character can be accompanied with a lot of interesting creatures and people who can be used, for example, as a defending force.

Building and organization of the settlements in the game are also completely based on the player’s will. There is a various possibility such as fortification, organizing settlement defense, satisfying settlers needs (building stores and giving electricity) as well as assembling trade routes which increase the settlement’s prosperity.

The game’s developer has given his best to present us a picture of possible world’s ending, by creating a post-apocalyptic surrounding, with visual effects that hypnotize a player, wanting to explore every corner of that the barren wasteland. With the reddish atmosphere and previously mentioned visual spectacle, all you have left is a sound of Bing Crosby’s hits including other singers of the past as well, which will follow you on your merciless surviving adventure throughout the whole game.

Visually, Fallout 4 is a masterpiece. As we mentioned before, they recently even visually remastered the game. You can really tell the amount of effort and hours that went into making this game look the way it looks, and it all pays off! When you’re in this game, you can feel the story, the characters, and to a certain extent even believe that you are a part of this apocalyptic wasteland. Fighting for your life and principles.

At the end, as a result of the developers work, Fallout 4 was awarded the title of ”Game of the year” during last year’s DICE awards. But, with or without awards this is surely a must-play game, satisfying the imagination of everyone who decides to embark on this breathtaking adventure.

4 Easy Overwatch Tips

Overwatch is one of the most popular first person shooter games to date. Millions and millions of people are in are of its style and sophistication, as well as its ever changing nature. It can be a confusing game to play, with all of its twists and turns and amazing amounts of heroes and gameplay options. While we all try to keep up with the constant barrage of updates and changes, some of us are losing sight of the basics. Here are a few tips and tricks to refocus your eyes back on the prize.

TAKE A HINT FROM THE AUDIO

The point of the audio in Overwatch is to deliver information to the player. Remember that the sounds of your team members make in gameplay are not as prominent as those of your opponents. That means that when you hear something that is louder and more in the foreground, chances are it’s an enemy and not a teammate. Keep in mind also, that every character who walks on the ground has a different audio effect. Basically, every character sounds different. It is important to pay attention to this and not to dismiss it as silly. It is important to pay attention to the language that is being spoken as well. If you hear another language being spoken, chances are that is an enemy. So, keep your guard up and get ready.

FIRE AT WILL

All heroes in Overwatch are equipped with infinite ammunition, so you don’t have to waste your energy and time thinking about your ammo levels and trying to find more when you run out. Also, paying for ammo seems trite when it is such a focal point of the game. So, the next time you are trying to destroy a shield or take down a seemingly impenetrable enemy, just keep shooting. Shoot randomly and don’t even waste your time aiming sometimes. Your ultimate charge will build up more quickly that way than if you take your time and aim for just the right shot.

KEEP YOUR GUARD UP

All you need to do is to figure out what the timing is of each character’s shot and you can then figure out how much time you need to deflect. After you play for a little while, it will be fairly simple to learn how long you have before you need to raise up that shield and deflect. And, in terms of ultimate abilities, you can actually gain the upper hand just by knowing when to deflect. You can take advantage of an enemy’s ultimate just by timing, which can be super useful in a number of tight and dizzying situations.

DON’T FORGET TO MELEE

Even though this sounds silly and I am sure that most of you know it, don’t forget to use the melee attack. It is quick and dishes out plenty of sometimes unexpected damage to your opponent. It also can be more effective when you are very close to your enemy, rather than relying on and using your weapon as your only line of defense and attack. Basically, whenever you can, use the melee attack. It’s effective and unexpected and can make or break your gameplay in certain situations.

Those are just a few obvious but often overlooked tips and tricks in Overwatch. There are plenty more, so stay tuned. In the meantime, check out this Overwatch tier list that was written by our friends at Boostards! It contains a bunch of useful information about your favourite heroes and also provides some insight into what the strongest picks in the current meta for Season 4 are. We’re sure that you will make full use of this information to gain the unfair advantage against your competitive opponents!

7 Video Games That Don’t Involve Violence

Video games tend to be focused around violence and gore- but if you look hard enough, there are some gems that cater to other genres. While they may be hard to find, they are worth the search. I have compiled a list of 7 worth mentioning, and have personally played a couple of them.

1. Minecraft

Minecraft is one of the most popular non-violent games on this list, and for good reason. It keeps you busy, gets creative juices flowing, and passes time. The game involves building houses and exploring. The number of things you can build in Minecraft is basically limitless if you get creative. There are even some players who have built gigantic pieces of art in the limitless world. God knows how long it actually took for them to build a sculpture of Ironman out of tiny pixel pieces.

2. Child of Light

This is one of the games that I have played and found myself really enjoying! Child of Light is based on the life of Aurora, a 19th century Austrian girl. Aurora gets transported to a fantastical land where she has to go on quests to save the moon, sun, and stars from the Dark Queen. There are some battles in this game, but they are battles between Aurora and monsters that are found within the land, so they aren’t overly bloody.

3. Braid

Braid is a 2008 puzzle game. It’s unique partly due to its art style which makes it appear as if it is a moving painting. In the game, players must journey through different lands to save the princess. Users are also able to manipulate time within the game.

4. Stacking

Stacking is a game the has heavy Russian influence. The main part of the game includes live Russian stacking dolls, in which the players inhabits in order to complete over 100 challenging levels. Each stacking doll has its own special ability that can help players through the more frustrating levels.

5. Catherine

For romance lovers, Catherine is a great game to invest in. Catherine follows a male character named Vincent, who must choose between his girlfriend Katherine, and a woman who is also named Catherine that he woke up with one morning. Players have to be careful which decisions they make because some choices can lead to Vincent’s death. The storyline of Catherine is a nice change of pace from the usual, and the puzzle gameplay is actually pretty good, considering how much of the game is focused around the story.

6. Contrast

Contrast is based in the 1920’s and switches between two different worlds- a 3D fantasy world, and a 2D shadowy world. The game is based off the performance art world of vaudeville and includes touches of film noir.

7. Papo & Yo

Papo & Yo is an adventure game. The game has two main characters: Quico, and Monster. Monster is a beast with razor-sharp teeth, and a strong liking for poisonous frogs and Quico is his human best friend. The game is about utilizing Monster’s strange moods to complete the game’s levels and find Quico.

The above is a list that contains only a few of the interesting games that don’t involve assassins, guns, or war. It just takes a bit of patience and fishing around to find them, but for someone who doesn’t like fighting games, finding a few gems in other genres will be worth the effort. Another plus of non-violent games, is that despite being less popular, they’re often created to be played on multiple different platforms including hand held gaming devices like the Nintendo DS.

I hope you enjoyed this list, and try out some of these titles yourself! Happy gaming!

Identity of Next Overwatch Hero Leaks

Update: New hero Orisa was released!

Despite being released May last year, Overwatch has quickly gained ground to become one of the most popular video games in the market today. However, this is unsurprising when you consider its’ highly developed characters called heroes, and the fact that new game content is released every month. We’ve taken a liking to this game, as you can tell by our coverage of Overwatch updates in our previous posts.

The initial heroes of the game were 21 playable characters split up into offense, defense, tank and support roles and included; Genji, Soldier: 76, Reaper, Tracer, McCree, Pharah, Baston, Mei, Widowmaker, Hanzo, Junkrat, Torbjörn, Winston, Roadhog, D.Va, Zarya, Reinhardt, Mercy, Lucio, Symmetra and Zenyatta. However, it is well-known that more playable heroes will be added, amidst speculation that some might also be removed. In light of this, July 2016 saw the addition of Ana Amari who plays a support role. Sombra, an offense hero, was added four months later.

New Overwatch Hero?

Currently, the best bet on a new hero is Efi Oladele, a child prodigy, and robotics genius. An 11-year old from Numbani, Efi was given a robotic kit by her parents at an early age which cultivated her interest in artificial intelligence. This interest has seen her on the receiving end of a number of prestigious awards, including the highly-coveted Adawe Foundation grant. In a faux interview, Efi boasts of her skills and prowess and reveals an obsession with creating robots and drones to assist her with house chores. As expected, there are minimal details on her role or other abilities, or when she will become playable. However, it is safe to assume that considering her age she might be kept out of the active battlefield.

Doomfist

Word on the grapevine was that Doomfist would be the latest addition, however, Kaplan, one of the series directors, seems to have ruled him out in one of the game’s forums. Despite his popularity in Overwatch lore, Doomfist remains a mystery. What we do know is that Doomfist is not a single individual, but rather a title passed down among a series of equally mysterious individuals. Mezten described this character as a ‘generational hero’, akin to the legendary Green Lantern and the Flash. Three individuals have taken up the title of Doomfist identifying as the Savior, the Scourge, and the Successor respectively.

Athena and Liao

There are rumors that other characters, namely Athena and Liao, might soon get playable hero upgrades. Athena, a computer system, is the game’s narrator. She is a friend and valuable asset to Winston in Overwatch lore, as she keeps track of his health and assists him with his creations. Athena plays a crucial role in the series of events which initiates the game although, she almost gets infected by a virus uploaded by the Reaper. Athena would be an effortless addition to the playable characters of the game and is seemingly perfect for a support role given the role she plays in guiding Overwatch agents.

Liao is one of the most mysterious characters of the game. All that is known about him is that he was one of the founding members of Overwatch together with the Reaper, Soldier:76 and others.

Now that you’ve been “leaked” the next Overwatch hero releases, get back to claiming your Skill Rating in competitive! Our friends at Boostards actually made a nifty complete guide detailing all the changes that Overwatch’s competitive game mode underwent during their Season 2 update. You can read more about that over here!

5 Gaming Technologies That Will Blow Your Mind!

Hologram experiences that once were only possible in movies like Star Wars are no longer a fantasy. But what else does the gaming future hold? Today, I wanna talk about these futuristic gaming tech that might be available for us in the near future!

1. CABLE ROBOT SIMULATOR

This technology provides the gaming world with one thing they need: MOTION. The cable robot system allows you to experience motion while having a virtual reality experience you’ve never had before.

The simulator can have one or two passengers and is held in the air by some cables. It then moves in many different directions with you in the center of it.

Add virtual reality glasses to this technology and you will be blown away! It can give you a realistic and breath-taking flight simulation, or put you in the middle of a car race.

2. HOLOLENS

This one is a support innovation created by Microsoft. With Hololens the possibilities are endless, everything from visiting the surface of Mars, seeing and modifying virtual objects around your house, to shooting aliens on your walls.

Hololens uses the technology of holograms in its most impactful way. This technology will not only change the gaming world but also the way we use computers.

3. GAMING SUITS

This one will give you an incredibly immersive experience. It is a suit that allows you to feel things on your body according to what’s happening in the game, allowing you to feel nearby explosions, bullets passing right through you or even hitting you. For only about $300 this can be all yours, as soon as they are tested and released for public use, of course.

4. THE VOID

What once used to be impossible now is a revolutionary virtual reality world. Introducing — The Void. A virtual reality complete system created for you to be fully immersed in the gaming world. It is set in a physical environment combined with virtual elements, rain, dragons, earthquakes, spaceship adventures and more.

You will be using a special suit with a sensor that allows you to physically feel virtual elements such as rain, explosions, or snows. How awesome is that?

5. KOR-FX

KOR-FX is basically a game vest that allows you to hear and sense what’s happening in the game as it were happening in your own room. It uses a 4d technology to give you an immersing gaming experience.It takes the audio coming from your game into an environmental and situational feedback that is synched to what’s happening on the screen.

“You can feel everything around you that’s happening, when you get shot you can feel the direction of where it’s coming from” says a Gaming Expo visitor.

New and excited experiences, gaming suits, hologram technologies, all of these new innovative gaming technologies promise to change the future of gaming and even how we use computers. Are you looking forward to the future? I know I sure am after reading about all this!

Fallout 4 Receives Graphics Overhaul

Wasteland wanderers will be getting a welcome surprise next week – Bethesda Studios has announced that their year old Fallout 4 will be receiving a fresh batch of high-definition textures for users playing the PC version. This graphics overhaul (arriving in the form of a free patch) will be very welcome in some circles – while many (including myself) consider the visuals of the post-apocalyptic RPG to be just as stunning as ever, there were several fans who lamented the fact that the quality didn’t hold a candle to other AAA’s released around the same time (Witcher III, for example). With the addition of this new texture pack (which clocks in at a whopping 58GB) that all may change.

It’s not all good news, however: In addition to the aforementioned storage requirements, you’ll want some relatively serious horsepower. Bethesda recommends PCs have at minimum an i7-5820K, 8GB of memory, and a GTX1080 (or equivalent). While this might exclude those of us with more budget conscious rigs, Bethesda assures us that we can try the updated textures and then easily disable them from the launcher if they don’t work out.

Console gamers are getting some love too – although they won’t be receiving the high resolution textures, players on the PS4 will be receiving a patch of their own around the same time that will buff the game’s native rendering resolution to 1440p as well as some other perks such as increased draw distance for in-game objects and enhanced godray effects.

Fallout 4 was released a little over a year ago on November 10, 2015. While receiving positive reviews from the general gaming community, some die-hard Fallout fans have often had misgivings over it. In addition to the graphics complaints mentioned above, players also criticized the comparatively linear story line and overly-streamlined dialog system, especially when compared to the franchise’s previous installment, Fallout: New Vegas. In some fan communities there have also been rumblings about allegedly sparse DLC (Nuka-World, released in August 2016, is confirmed to be the final expansion for the game). With the addition of the new high-resolution textures, Bethesda may be hoping to quell at least some of the fan’s complaints.

All in all, this looks like it will be a welcome refresh to the game. As a serial screenshooter, I’m looking forward to donning my favorite power armor (a souped up T-65e with Atom Cats paint, naturally) and revisiting some of the more photogenic areas of the Commonwealth.

I haven’t personally played this game, but I’ve watched some videos and walkthroughs of it, and I’d have to say it definitely looks like an enjoyable game. I actually finished watching the complete walkthrough of it, and I enjoyed myself just as much as if I were to play the game! Fallout4 is definitely a must-have for any RPG-FPS fan, if there’s even such a genre. If you’re unsure, you can watch some videos of the gameplay before committing to a purchase.

 

Overwatch Updates – 2017

Overwatch fans are in for a big surprise and perhaps the best treat so far in 2017 with the latest updates coming into effect to celebrate the year of the Rooster. Blizzard has been working on some items and special in game events marking the 20th birthday of Diablo. A selection of in game sprays representing various Diablo classes will be presented, also available will be a new player icon styled after the Lord of Terror.

There is also an on-going sale for Overwatch so if you haven’t already bought the game, now is a great chance for you to get it and start your journey to Overwatch addiction, very much like myself. You can check out prices and more info from Blizzard’s Playoverwatch site!

The openness of the overwatch team has been of great assistance in the gathering of all latest relevant news regarding updates and information on any key future happenings and events related to the game. As relayed by Blizzard’s Overwatch team, we are to expect one major update per month moving forward. However, we this is just an estimate and not a confirmation as most are used to with how Blizzard works. In this post I will list out the expected changes and updates that Blizzard has in store for Overwatch players, but please not that none of them are set in stone!

Expected Overwatch Updates in Early 2017

  • Assault map improvements
  • The return of Lucioball
    Possibility of the introduction of an 8v8 brawl alongside a 4v4 brawl. Lucioball would return perhaps in an arcade mode since it was such a popular game mode back when they launched it the first time.
  • Custom Game Tweaks. Confirmed custom changes will include:
    – Enabling all chat.
    – An option to turn off kicking for inactivity.
    – The options to change who is the moderator in lobby.
    – The ability to switch teams in lobby.
  • Symmetra shield generator voice lines
    Similar to her teleporter, Blizzard will be working on the introduction of lines for reacting to the creation and destruction of shield generators installed by enemy Symmetras.
  • Replay system
    Not expected to be released anytime soon, but Blizzard has given confirmation that a replay system is in the works by their internal team and we should expect to see this in 2017.
  • Map editor
    Similar to the replay system, this is also another one for the future.
  • New heroes
    Ana and Sombra are out but recent information update says heroes will not be released in batches we are yet which more heroes are up for contention for release. We are all looking forward in anticipation for the next heroes to be unvailed.
  • Anti-hack, Anti-cheat and bug fixing
    Little info or specifics were divulged regarding this matter but a lot of Blizzard’s resources are going into trying to find a viable and consistent solution for this. Hackers and cheaters are a huge problem in Overwatch and require a similar reaction before things start to get out of hand.
  • Social improvements
    Constantly being worked on and developed. Also in the works are improvements to the reporting functions in-game. As things are now, it is rather limited.

This limited time event is ending on the 13th of Feb, so if you haven’t already farmed all the legendary and epic skins, I definitely recommend that you take some time to grind them out! Some of them, especially the Mei one is super cute. If you don’t have the time to play the game yourself, you can get others to play it for you! Boostards, whom we have done an interview a couple of weeks back are offering Overwatch boosting services to those we are in need of help, or don’t have the time to play the game themselves.

Highly Anticipated Games of 2017

2017 may have only just begun but everyone is already on the edge of their seat in anticipation of some of these amazing titles that are on their way. Some games that we’ve been super excited about for years will finally be hitting the shelves while others are just being announced. Regardless, if you play Xbox One, Playstation4, Wii U, PC, or all of the above, you will want to know about some of the great upcoming titles. Here are just a few of some of the most anticipated games that will be released sometime this year.

Nioh / PS4 Exclusive

If you have ever envisioned being in 16th century Japan amidst fantastical demons all while being a samurai then you should look at PS4’s exclusive new title Nioh. This action RPG offers the opportunity to see Japan in a beautiful yet war-torn period and engages you with an intricate and rewarding combat system. There is even a unique co-op system built in for those samurais who may need a little help in fighting off some fierce demons. Nioh finally hits the stores on February the 7th.

Checkout this neat video featuring the gameplay of Nioh!

Halo Wars 2 / Xbox One Exclusive

Halo Wars 2 continues in the same vein as the previous title of the same name. It is a real-time strategy game designed for those mentalists who may want to play a more vivid game of chess. Build and lead powerful armies against other players or join up with allies to attack others. Whatever you prefer, this game provides the opportunity to be your own powerful general and to display those skills amongst others. HW2 will become available on February 21st.

Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild / Wii U / Switch

Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild takes a slight depart from previous games and nearly does a 360 in returning to the game that started it all. This time Zelda provides an open world environment free for the gamer to explore at their leisure. There will be no intent geared storytelling in this title as the story and the pace of the story is solely up to the player. Considering their 30th anniversary was last year it made sense that the developers would want to come full circle with the legendary franchise. The newest installment in the Zelda series will be available on March 3rd.

For Honor / PS4 / Xbox One / PC

For Honor has been getting some buzz for some time for its MMORPG style. Although, it is an action game with intense melee combat it also provides a truly visceral online experience. Whether you are single player and experiencing the main story or have chosen to link up with a group of other players to fight in one army against another, you are promised a breathtaking realistic experience. Ironically, this intense war game will be available on February 14th.

The battle mechanics in For Honor are really unique and you just have to see it for yourself to understand how great of a game this will turn out to be. I’m really excited to play this game as you can tell!

Tekken 7 / PS4 / Xbox One / PC

Tekken 7 is setting new milestones for all fighting games with their new graphical might by their utilization of the Unreal Engine 4. All of the old fighters we know and love as well as new ones will be available with new moves and combos. Street Fighter’s Akuma is also available for all of the new epic battles. Tekken 7’s release date is not as close as the previous titles but is still worth waiting for on June 2nd.

These are just a few of the game titles everyone is looking forward to, so keep your eyes peeled or follow our blog to find out more about the big games that will be released this 2017!

CS:GO Remains Popular 5 Years After Release

The first person shooter genre is full of popular and engaging games. Game franchises such as Call of Duty or Halo have gone from being mere video games to pop culture icons, spawning their own lingo, merchandise, and memes. All while bringing tens of millions of dollars for their publishers. And as the big name games consistently steal the spotlight their remain a bevy of other compelling shooters out there that are perhaps equally deserving of notoriety.

Enter Counter Strike: Global Offensive

CS:GO can boast of accomplishments that few FPS games, or games of any genre, have attained. Released in 2012, CS:GO is still incredibly popular and features a rabid fan base of loyal players. Published by Valve Corporation, it is the fourth installment in the Counter Strike series that began 14 years ago.

CS:GO has stayed true to the gameplay it pioneered at its inception. In stark contrast to most multiplayer shooting games, it doesn’t take many bullets to kill or be killed. The hardcore element gives a simplicity to the game that makes it easy to jump into yet difficult to master. Game modes are fairly straight forward as well: you’re either a terrorist or a counter terrorist. Battles range across a variety of maps with objectives being anything from a standard deathmatch to a race to defuse or detonate an explosive device.

What keeps CS:GO relevant today despite being 5 years old is the community that has built up around it. The quick, exciting gameplay has a tendency to suck players in and keep you playing for long periods of time. It isn’t uncommon to encounter people who have dedicated over one thousand hours or more to the game.

This immense loyalty and popularity has led to CS:GO becoming a popular game in professional competitions. Many third party tournaments are held each year but Valve itself sponsors a ‘Majors’ event annually as well. Introduced in 2013, the first Major had a prize pool of $250,000. That amount has since been increased to an impressive $1 million in 2016. The competitions are as popular as most major sporting events, with live attendance in the tens of thousands while millions watch online via live stream.

CS:GO’s popularity shows no signs of diminishing. Dedicated updates and support by the developers continue to keep the game well balanced and fresh. A fifth installment of the series will no doubt be coming in the near future but for now, players can use services like CSGO Boosting which CSGO Academy provides, will continue to earn bragging rights from their friends as they blast digital foes into eternity.

Interview With a Elo Booster

It might please (or displease) you to know that the authors of PiracySim has managed to get in touch with some boosting companies to get permission to interview some of their boosters. For those who are unfamiliar, boosting services for games like League of Legends and Overwatch have taken off in the recent years. With the demand from gamers who want to achieve better rankings on the ladder, the boosting industry is thriving! This is may be a rather unpopular topic in the gaming community, but we think it’s an interesting topic that nobody has covered, and seeing things from their perspective can also be interesting. Today, we managed to get in touch with the boosters of LoL Academy and Overwatch boosting. These companies provide their boosting services for the games League of Legends and Overwatch, so without further ado, here’s the interview!


How many boosters do you estimate work for your sites?

LoL Academy: I’d estimate about 50-100 active boosters at any one given time. League of Legends is a pretty popular game, and more players mean more business.

Boostards: Probably less than 10. Overwatch is a relatively new game so…

 

How do you feel the community views “boosting”?

LoL Academy: I really don’t care what they think, as long as we’re selling and they’re buying. We’ll keep selling it. It doesn’t matter what people think. It’s just capitalism, nothing personal.

Boostards: Boosting is a very taboo topic in the gaming community for obvious reasons. Many people see it negatively, and rightly so, but we do this because there’s a demand for it. If nobody wanted to buy boosting, nobody would be selling it as a service. It’s like drugs and prostitution, consumers drive the market. I also think that there are 2 kinds of gamers, the kind with time and no money, and the kind with money but no time. If you play a game that you like, and there is something you cannot obtain in the game because of the lack of time, it would make sense to pay someone to do it for you.

 

Do you feel the boosting market will ever die?

LoL Academy: It probably will die at one point, we’re not sure when but nothing lasts forever.

Boostards: I don’t think it’s my place to say whether it will die or not. All that matters is I will keep having work to do while boosting is still going strong. Will it die? Maybe. Does it really matter to me? Nope. My life isn’t just about boosting, so I will move on to other things if boosting dies.

 

Do you agree with the statement “elo hell is real”?

LoL Academy: This is a really popular question that has sparked a lot of debate over the past years. I’d say it’s not true. After all, boosters don’t have problems when playing on customer accounts. It just goes to show huh? People create this idea of “elo hell” because they can’t climb out of whatever ranking bracket it is they are trying to get out of.

Boostards: I think I would agree with this to a certain extent. After all, Overwatch is a team game and even if you are slightly better than the average player in your rank, it would still be hard to carry if you have really bad luck. As a booster playing in the lower ranks, of course I wouldn’t have a problem, but the players who belong there, sure they would have trouble even if they are good and are supposed to go up in rank.

 

How much time do you spend on boosting every week?

LoL Academy: I’m not sure… Probably 8 hours a day? It’s pretty good money for a part-time job.

Boostards: I’m required to complete all orders on the site, so I don’t really track the amount of time I spend playing, I just play when there are boosting orders.

 

Thank you for your time and giving us a glace into your niche industry, any final words for our blog’s readers?

LoL Academy: I hope I get a pay raise for this. I don’t make nearly enough with boosting.

Boostards: Thank you for the interview. As for your readers, I hope you guys think of Boostards if you ever run into problems ranking up in Overwatch.

 


That’s it for the interview. We hope you enjoyed this. If you like the format and would like similar content, please feel free to leave a comment or send us an email if you have something similar to contribute. Thank you for reading, and you can check out LoL Academy here, and Boostards here.
