Activision Files Patent for Microtransaction-Minded Matchmaking System

All-Stars , and claims to be the most played game in the world. Yes, even more than the behemoth World of Warcraft. Like DotA, League of Legends gives you control of one Champion, who has unique attacks and abilities, and sends you out against enemy Mooks and Champions to earn experience points and gold. Your goal is to destroy the enemy base the Nexus by first eliminating the turrets that defend it, which usually requires a heap-load of Cannon Fodder Mooks to tank the turret blasts while the Champions whittle it down. There are also a number of secondary objectives scattered around the map which grant significant bonuses to whoever claims them. The Framing Device originally revolved around the titular"League of Legends", a magical battle arena used to settle disputes between the competing factions living in the magical fantasy world of Runeterra. The lore has developed in a massive way since then , employing a Continuity Reboot that writes out the League entirely in favour of focusing upon the living tales of individual characters and entire nations that populate Runeterra.

Slated to hit production servers in March, it reimagines the game with a new graphics engine and over 25 ultra-realistic maps. This impressive revamp has been over four years in the making. We wanted to give the game a modern look, while also ensuring you can enjoy it on your rig. Much like we all do in a battle, we needed to plan a few steps ahead. In our case, it called for a solution that would support the latest technological advancements while having enough capacity to let us advance graphics in tandem with it.

Also, we needed a technology tailored to World of Tanks.

The player is sponsored by the plasmid manufacturer, Sinclair Solutions, to test out their weapons, plasmids, and Tonics in a consumer reward program.

Setting[ edit ] BioShock 2 is set in the fictional city of Rapture , hidden from the rest of the world underwater. Rapture was the realized vision of Andrew Ryan, who built the city to escape the tyranny of governments. Despite the apparent utopia, class distinctions grew, and former gangster and businessman Frank Fontaine used his influence of the lower class to plan a coup of Rapture. Fontaine created black market routes with the surface world, and together with Dr. Brigid Tenenbaum, created a cheap plasmid industry by mass-producing ADAM through the implanting of the slugs in the stomachs of orphaned girls, nicknamed"Little Sisters".

Fontaine used his plasmid-enhanced army to attack Ryan, but reportedly was killed in the battle. Ryan took the opportunity to seize his assets including the plasmid factories. In the months that followed, a second figure named Atlas rose to speak for the lower class, creating further strife. Atlas led attacks on the factories housing the Little Sisters, and Ryan countered by creating"Big Daddies", plasmid-enhanced humans surgically grafted into giant lumbering diving suits who were psychologically compelled to protect the Little Sisters at all costs.

The battle left many dead, and the few sane survivors barricaded themselves away. What once was a beautiful utopia had fallen into a crumbling dystopia. Eleanor is separated from Delta by her mother, Sofia Lamb, who uses a mind control plasmid on Delta to make him shoot himself. Ten years later, Delta awakens, revived by Little Sisters under the control of Eleanor.
