Rainbow Six Siege: Operation Grim Sky Operators in depth

The 2 new operators introduced with operation GRIM SKY are :

CLASH and MAVERICK


Rainbow Six Siege keeps getting bigger and bigger. With the third season of year 3, Operation Grim Sky is set to shake up the meta of the game. Most importantly in addition to the new 2 operators, there’s also a rework to the map HEREFORD BASE and other tweaks to the core game.

Clash is the first defender coming to siege with a shield, this will dramatically change the entire SIEGE meta. Her shield is best-used against crowd control and rush. With  CCE SHIELD  you can do more than blocking corridors. If you are feeling like roaming with her you are able to do that too safely. The ability of Clash to slow down enemies using high voltage Charged Field Generator(CFG). Enemies caught in CFG also sustain low damage over time. However, while Clash is using her shield she can’t melee or use her secondary weapon. Clash comes with P-10C and SPSMG9  as options for her secondary weapon, P-10C being a pistol and SPSMG9 being an SMG with a burst firing mode. In the right hands, Clash can be played to order over the rushing attackers and play the timer situationally.
However, Clash does come with a certain number of counters to her. Thatcher can use his EMP grenades to disable CFGCapitão’s asphyxiating bolts tend to be a bigger threat as she is a one-speed operator and can’t outrun it very quickly. Even without having Thatcher or Capitão, one melee hit can make Clash drop her shield down. Apart from these weaknesses, she seems to be game changing when used situationally and effectively.

Maverick is an addition to the hard breacher gang, his unique ability straightforward and simple. The gadget that comes with Maverick is called  EXOTHERMIC-S “SURI” TORCH, basically, it is a blowtorch. Maverick can use his blowtorch to breach any surface, including reinforced walls, barricades, and hatches. However, there’s a catch to this, his blowtorch only has limited fuel, making breaches like Hibana or Thermite is not the case with Maverick. Above it all his torch makes little to no sound making the tool extremely versatile. The short range on the blowtorch is another weakness. Maverick is better played as a support than guns blazing like ASH.
Maverick excels in his ability to make murder holes on a reinforced wall leading to take out that bandit battery or even getting a kill.  Maverick and Blackbeard combo definitely proves to be deadly as he can safely peek with these holes with his shield. “Now we know why Ubisoft nerfed Blackbeard prior to the operation, as this tactic could be seen as overpowered”. However, with the addition of Maverick, the use of Thatcher can substantially decrease. Above all being a 3-speed operator and his blowtorch he poses to be a definite threat to anchoring and roaming defenders.
In conclusion, Maverick poses to be a certain threat in the right hands. He can be a definite threat when used effectively. However, burning out his blowtorch will render him weak and ineffective. Given the weak pool of resources, Maverick is better used as a support and meta-wise this can open up a lot of new strategies for the attackers.
Maverick comes with 2 options for his Primary weaponAR-15.50 which is a DMR and M4

Shadow of the Tomb Raider: Nvidia trailer with RTX


Nvidia showcased their RTX Technology and also gave us a glance at the Shadow of The Tomb Raider. There was a heavy focus on Real-time ray tracing which should make the lightning effect much more realistic and a better-looking anti-aliasing. Also, it was interesting to know that Nvidia has actually worked with game developers to add ray tracing into upcoming games and soon it will add patches to the existing games. So basically many upcoming games will be partnered with Nvidia to bring out the effect of RTX.

The main highlight was to bring out shadows in the game and maybe that’s why Nvidia chose “Shadow of the Tomb Raider”  to present their new technology. The title of the game suited to their new technology.

 
Shadow Of The Tomb Raider was shown running on the new graphics card. The game was though not able to run at 60 FPS with RTX on. The Nvidia RTX 2080 Ti is supposed to be the top of the line graphics card that is expected to run any game thrown towards it, failing to see that happen is a sheer disappointment.

Though there weren’t any distinct area lights like we saw on-stage of Tomb Raider demo, it was using a single light source – the sun – and used that to create all the ray traced shadowing of the game world.
So basically to achieve something you have to sacrifice something, i.e to get a better visual experience, you have to sacrifice FPS.
So to conclude, even the world’s most powerful and expensive GPU embedded with the most advanced technology is unable to bring out the best FPS possible. Maybe later with updates and patches, it will improve.

Battlefield 5 derailing before launch?

When Dice said the next entry in the Battlefield franchise is going to shake up the long-running series, the entire battlefield community already started boarding the hype train, Although the previous entry to the franchise, Battlefield 1 despite being a success had its fair share of problems. Battlefield players weren’t happy about it, then too while reaching the end cycle of updates to Battlefield 1 it was seen that it lost about 60% of the player base in its 2 years of  update cycle.
Then came DICE with the tease of the next Battlefield game. EA was already surrounded by the negative aura from all the backlash of the Battlefront 2 loot boxes controversy. Then came the time where the first trailer for Battlefield V was to be shown off at E3 2018, “oh boy, a massive disaster it was” the community rained down on EA for its poor presentation and a very pathetic trailer.
Community forums were already being filled with all sorts of topic regarding the new game and the direction it’s going. Not to forget the outrage about the overly portrayed female soldier from the trailer with a prosthetic arm, the single player trailer dropped after this made situation a little better but it wasn’t enough to patch the damage that has been done to Battlefield as a whole. Keeping in mind “the first impression is always the best impression“, following up with this divisive topic and EA facing pressure from every possible direction including the community from the media, they launched the Gamescom trailer for Battlefield V. After seeing the trailer instantly almost everyone got the thought that “this should’ve been the E3 trailer which instead of all the flashy hinting to all the possible cosmetics in the experience of the game to the gritty, grim and grounded experience for which Battlefield is known for”. But it was a little too late as analyst from the industry already marking Battlefield V to have pre-orders far lesser than the likes of Call of Duty Black Ops 4 and Red Dead Redemption 2.

Leading up to all this let’s recall how the EA executive Patrick Soderlund responded to all the outrage from the community “I think those people who don’t understand it, well, you can either accept it and buy the game or don’t.” This response was the perfect fuel needed to the already waging wildfire from the players, forward to a later date it is known that Patrick Soderlund has left EA.
According to the information from Sarah.E.Needleman from The Wall Street Journal, pre-order sales for Battlefield V has been weak. The main reasons being that the release window of the game is sandwiched between other 2 juggernauts from the competition and the most dominant one being Red Dead Redemption 2 which is a much-anticipated game than Battlefield 5 and Black Ops 4. This doesn’t mean that Battlefield 5 is dead upon release and looking at the worst case scenario EA will make back the money spend on the game through micro transactions which is going to be all over the game.
However, Battlefield 5 is not to be written off completely, with making all the DLC’s for the game down the line free unlike Black Ops 4 which is still following an outdated and straight up horrendous map pack. The inclusion of the Battle Royale mode too in the game also has been getting divisive response from the community, “as the mainstream giant of a shooter Battlefield is it is not supposed to chase sudden trends and should be making tides within the genre by making changes and adding other mechanics.”  Not to ignore the subtle building mechanics in the game which is inspired straight up from Fortnite, Call of Duty being the abominable cash cow which stopped innovating in games long ago the BR mode is not even worth a talk.
From the gameplay experiences from the alpha phases of Battlefield 5, it is of no short a fun shooter. But the core experience can be stomped on by the wrong decisions EA makes. They can’t afford to take such a damage since the community is already divisive about the game and the release window is such a choke. On an ending note there’s not much time left for DICE to turn things dramatically. What they can do is shape the game up into a solid experience.
Battlefield 5 is all set to release on October 21 across all platforms.
