The CS:GO players ‘ Union (CSPPA) presented its version of the rating of professional teams. It was announced by Jordan n0thing Gilbert, and the methodology was developed by Lukas gla1ve Rossander, Jonathan EliGE Jablonowski, Marco Snappi Pfeiffer, Martin STYKO Stick and other eSports players.

According to the announcement, the Union had three main goals in developing the rating methodology:

To promote appropriate working conditions for the players. Representatives of the CSPPA noted that the current rating systems encourage teams to play as many matches and tournaments as possible, while they do not provide “protection” in cases when teams or individual eSports players do not attend events due to health problems, burnout, etc.
Increase transparency and ease of rating compilation. Here, the CSPPA mentions that ratings are often calculated according to rules that are not fully understood. The Union mentioned that its methodology may change depending on circumstances, but the criteria will always be publicly available.
Introduce a more inclusive and dynamic rating system. The CSPPA notes that the ecosystem of the scene is constantly evolving and changes in the rating methodology will be required over time — the Union welcomes constructive criticism and suggestions “from any corner of the CS:GO world”.
More detailed information about the calculation criteria can be found on the Union’s website. The CSPPA also introduced the first version of the rating — it included 40 teams.

A World of Warcraft player has found a way to kill opponents with a single hit

A user named Rextroy discovered a way to kill enemies in World of Warcraft: Battle for Azeroth in a split second. It uses the “remote control Device” accessory from The “operation Mechagon “dungeon and the “Hungry flame” azerite entity. A video with a demonstration of the mechanics is published on YouTube.

To win battles, the hero’s class and race do not matter — any character just needs to upgrade the “versatility” characteristic, which increases the DPS from accessories and entities.

“Hungry flame” deals maximum damage when re-triggered, if the previous application finished off the enemy. Rextroy used the “Slightly dented toad” item to summon a creature with a health unit, destroy it, and thus significantly enhance the azerite essence.

Previously, Rextroy forced the NPC to help him fight the Horde. He gathered more than 300 kultiras guards who attacked the opponents.
