2019 could prove to be an important year for the MMORPGS with many games continuing to roll on, while others will be stepping out of Early Access. In between all the hype for new titles, older established games won’t be idle either. Some that do have issues have arguably gotten better, and here’s a list of which ones are worth a second look at in 2019 despite falling short in recent times. Star Wars: The Old Republic A quick search on most MMORPGS forums and community sites will yield similar sentiments. For starters, Star Wars: The Old Republic, is no longer an MMORPG worth the subscription. Harsh, considering it’s base game is free to play with restrictions, but in recent times the game has deserved those sentiments.

Second year time table 2019 karnataka
Funcom this week published their second quarter results for 2019 and they are pretty much okay. Funcom’s CEO Rui Casais referred to 2019 as a transition year for Funcom between the turnaround and growth phases of the company where those changes may not be immediately visible. Presumably he is referring to Funcom’s revenue and profit for the second quarter which despite boasting a 53% increase from last quarter is moderately over half of last year’s numbers. $8.9 million in revenue in Q2 2019 compared to $15.2 million in 2018 as well as $600,000 in profit compared to $5.8 million in 2018. The numbers makes sense as 2018 brought in Conan Exiles and Mutant: Year Zero and Funcom didn’t have as big of a title to publish this year outside of Conan Unconquered which didn’t quite live up to expectations. On the plus side, the company has shed its $3.4 million in debt since last year and is in a strong, growing cash position. With Conan Unconquered we saw an … [Read more...] about Funcom Q2 2019: Conan Exiles Strong, Unconquered Not So Much
Upcoming Korean MMORPG Astellia for the West is having its first CBT test later today, and the start times have been revealed. For those in the east coast, players can expect to hop into game at 3am in the morning. While the timing is unusual, developers Studio 8 are based in Korea, and there are other reasons too. One of the reasoning given is that this start time gives the studio the most operational time to identify and resolve any issues that may arise with the start of the CBT before peak play hours for both NA and EU players. Much later in the week, the game will be sharing the schedule for, and the location of the Level-Up NPC that will enable players to begin testing the Legendary Dungeon content. The initial focus of the first phase will be to allow the developers get as much data on player progression rates, and identify potential pain points in the leveling process for players.

Yesportsbet.com decided to catch this possibility, and to tell you about potential Aegis pretenders. Some curious bets are here as well.

It’s exciting times for Elder Scrolls Online 2019. Not only are we getting brand new content soon especially with Elsweyr and Dragons, but racial passives are also getting a revamp. Developers ZOS has shared their plans for racial passive changes before they hit the PTS this week. One of the things they aim to fix are the lack of effective option in selecting your class and race combo. Additionally, many racial bonuses didn’t have universal applicability, and that takes a way from a unique gameplay element and one considers using a more OP race over another. With that in mind, below are all the race changes. The -> icon prior to text indicates the new changes. High Elf Race Increases Experience gain in Destruction Staff Skill Line by 15%, extra 1% Generic Experience gain → No changes Spellcharge: 9% Magicka Recovery → Spell Recharge: Restore 575 Magicka or Stamina, based on whichever is higher, after activating a Class Ability. This effect can occur once … [Read more...] about Here Are All The Changes To Racial Passives In Elder Scrolls Online 2019
