Recent denial-of-service attacks taking down League of Legends and other popular gaming services are doing more than just [url=http://arstechnica.com/security/2014/01/dos-attacks-that-took-down-big-game-sites-abused-webs-time-synch-protocol/]wielding a never-before-seen technique[/url] to vastly amplify the amount of junk traffic directed at targets. In at least some cases, their devastating effects can deprive celebrity game players of huge amounts of money. As Ars reported last week, the attacks are abusing the Internet's [url=http://www.ntp.org/]Network Time Protocol[/url] (NTP), which is used to synchronize computers to within a few milliseconds of [url=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coordinated_Universal_Time]Coordinated Universal Time[/url]. A command of just 234 bytes is enough to cause some NTP servers to return a list of up to 600 machines that have previously used its time-syncing service. The dynamic creates an ideal condition for DoS attacks. Attackers send a modest-sized re

Increased CD and decreased range on Fracture for Skarner. Xerath has pretty much been completely reworked. Don't get too upset, we all know this has to happen to balance out the game. Sure, there could have been a few others that might be at the top of our list (Heimerdinger IMO), but here's the list of patch 4.2 notes if you'd like to read up.

Looks like you can play cross-platform too: [url=http://toucharcade.com/2014/04/16/hearthstone-heroes-of-warcraft-out-now/]http://toucharcade.com/2014/04/16/hearthstone-heroes-of-warcraft-out-now/[/url] I haven't tried it yet, but heard a lot about it. I was a big MTG fan back in the day so I might give it a shot. Anyone playing already?

[b]The DeathTaker is a wired professional gaming mouse targetting the eSports scene. It's a claw grip style mouse and is very light for its size although it comes with weights (4.5g x 6) so that you can customize the feel. Plastic is the primary material used and the weights will be necessary for added precision.[/b] [b]The DeathTaker has an adjustable laser, customizable in-mouse macros and teflon pads at the front and back to help it guide smoothly. You can use the API for ajusting DPI, polling rate and other features.[/b] [b]At a reasonable $52, it might be worth testing, but there are a few others that might have it beat at the same price range with a more comfortable and precise feel.[/b] [img]https://d1qy7qyune0vt1.cloudfront.net/webroot-en/attachment/10182i304C20A03A1654AB.png[/img] [url=http://www.decryptedtech.com/enthusiast-peripherals/genius-deathtaker-professional-gaming-mouse-review][b]DecryptedTech Review[/b][/url]
Some genius setup a game of Pokemon where any commands issued in the chat get executed in the game. So you end up with 60k people all trying to issue commands at once, which makes for some hilarious behavior: [url=http://www.twitch.tv/twitchplayspokemon]http://www.twitch.tv/twitchplayspokemon[/url]

Mark your calendars, though, because BioWare has revealed via a new trailer that the game is now due for PC, Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, and PlayStation 4 on October 7, 2014.

Ars Technica does a nice breakdown here: [url=http://arstechnica.com/gaming/2014/04/introducing-steam-gauge-ars-reveals-steams-most-popular-games/]http://arstechnica.com/gaming/2014/04/introducing-steam-gauge-ars-reveals-steams-most-popular-games/[/url] Looks like DOTA2 wears the crown, unsurprisingly.
