LEAGUE OF LEGENDS DISABLES RANKED PLAY DUE TO A WIDE-RANGING BUG

PLAY LEAGUE OF LEGENDS FOR FREERisk and reward are both important elements of playing League of Legends. If Riot released a new champion who could just instantly teleport back to base without any risk whatsoever, players would be screaming that it was overpowered. As it turns out, several champions did get that ability due to a Recall bug so severe that Riot Games has temporarily turned off Ranked play whilst the bug gets sorted out. While it’s not an offensive bug, the fact that you can cast Recall instantly with multiple heroes means that said heroes can instantly teleport out of danger and thus greatly disrupt the metagame. An update on the issue should be available shortly.

ELDER SCROLLS ONLINE SOLD 138,000 DIGITAL EDITIONS IN JUNE

A new Superdata report covering June is surprisingly glowing about the MMO industry. MMOs, combined with social and mobile titles, accounted for $660 million in revenue and increased 13.5% from the month previous. The report praises Elder Scrolls Online as being the key factor for the market growth. The fantasy MMO sold 138,000 digital copies last month in addition to any box sales, making it the third biggest seller for June. The report also notes that the pay-to-play MMO market was up 7% from last year for a total of $50 million. Elder Scrolls Online has been topping the PlayStation charts as of late and was a big seller right out of the gate in the UK.
