    Few days have passed since Call of Duty launched the Season 2 update. While a lot of new content arrived for the Black Ops Cold War Multiplayer and new storylines for Warzone, the biggest change came in Zombies. The highly popular game mode received a new event called Outbreak, which has fans buzzing to play. The new event is one of the biggest changes to the game mode, and fans have praised its introduction. Outbreak increases the difficulty of the game from regular Zombie modes and also introduces a high-risk, high-reward system. Fans can carry on the game to increase their rewards, but also risk everything they have earned. As the difficulty has increased, it has limited the scope of weapon selection for players, and the community considers these two starter guns as the cream of the crop.

    (Reuters) - United States Soccer on Saturday voted to end a ban on players kneeling during the national anthem, something they have done to protest racial inequality and police brutality. More than 70% of the members of U.S. Soccer's ruling body voted to scrap the policy requiring players to "stand respectfully" during the song. About 30% voted to keep the policy in place.

    The Chinese studio brought in about $ 800 million last year. The industry China of the video game is opening up to the world and there are several projects underway that have caught a lot of players’ attention. In fact, one of the big surprises of 2020 was Genshin Impact, the RPG free to play open world chinese studio myHoYo. Now, thanks to GamesIndustry, we know that the success of the game was a increased income of the study last year. The co-founder of the study, Cai Haoyu, declared in an online conference that MiHoYo achieved in 2020 nothing more and nothing less than $ 774 million in revenue, mainly thanks to the great impact and success of Genshin Impact.

Viktor Hovland not only rebounded admirably from his quadruple-bogey eight to close out his second round at the WGC-Mexico World Championship, but has put himself in position to do something only four players have done since 1980—win on the PGA Tour with a quadruple bogey on their 72-hole scorecard. Hovland closed his first round with three straight birdies and had seven more against no bogeys Friday through 17 holes.

Kelly Loeffler, the former U.S. senator from Georgia, has sold her ownership of the Atlanta Dream and now Renee Montgomery, a former player on the WNBA team, has a stake in the organization as of Friday. The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that the franchise was sold to a three-member investor group that includes Montgomery, who declined to play last year due to racism and coronavirus concerns and retired from the league. She joined the Dream in 2018. A majority share of the women’s basketball team was sold to Larry Gottesdiener, chairman of Northland Investment Corporation, a real estate firm near Boston.

    SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. — With a month of Cactus League games to prepare for the regular season, Giants manager Gabe Kapler doesn’t want to ask too much of his veteran players too soon. The Giants will be cautious with easing players such as Evan Longoria, Brandon Crawford and Buster Posey into action, so many of the youngest prospects in camp should have early opportunities to hit the field and make an impression on the major league coaching staff. “I’m excited for them to be able to play amongst the big boys and show people where they belong,” Giants farm director Kyle Haines said. “They’re going to come in and I don’t think they’re fazed by anything anymore.” Giants fans have heard the names of top prospects such as shortstop Marco Luciano, outfielder Heliot Ramos and starting pitcher Sean Hjelle for the last several years, but with the cancelation...

The 29-year-old has played in seven games this season with the Predators, logging a respectable 16:34 per night of ice time.  However, he was pushed out of his spot by Ben Harpur, and while the Predators thought they’d be able to sneak him onto the taxi squad considering he has cleared waivers four other times in his career, clearly that wasn’t the case.

The most interesting of these is the Warp Pipe that Mario used to transport between worlds. Now, players can do the same across their islands.

    For the Giants, February signals the opening of spring training. But it also signals another important mark for a team with a rich history of African American ballplayers: Black History Month. The Giants’ monthly Chalk Talk focused Thursday on the team’s own Black history, featuring some revelations from Oracle Park public-address announcer Renel Brooks-Moon as she hosted the event with Giants broadcaster Jon Miller. Brooks-Moon has been referred to as the first Black woman whose voice has boomed through the speakers of a Major League Baseball stadium, but she noted during the virtual roundtable that she has learned another Black woman came before her debut. Leslie Sterling was the Fenway Park PA announcer for the Boston Red Sox in 1995 and 1996. “It actually just came to my attention very recently from one of my Twitter followers,” Brooks-Moon said. “I was kind of disheartened to learn...
    Imagine you finish at the top of your class at Harvard law or Johns Hopkins medical and you are told at graduation that you are will not be hired for six months — not because you are unqualified, but because it is a way for an institution to maintain control over your services for an extended period and limit your earnings, perhaps for your whole career. Imagine the Jaguars take Trevor Lawrence with the first pick in the NFL draft and, for the same reasons as our hypothetical law school or medical school graduate, do not activate him for the first four games next season. Ludicrous, right? Yet, MLB has a collective-bargaining agreement that incentivizes teams to do just this with their best and brightest prospects, essentially seven years of major league control rather than six. So in the next collective-bargaining agreement, those incentives must be eliminated. You know why?...

    Getty Alex Caruso and Talen Horton-Tucker are two potential trade chips for the Lakers. If the Los Angeles Lakers want to get aggressive in the trade market, it may cost the team fan-favorites like Alex Caruso or Talen Horton-Tucker. During a recent episode of ESPN’s The Jump, Ramona Shelburne noted the Lakers could use these two players as trade chips if they do not want to simply wait until there is a buyout market where they have to compete with other teams. “If the Lakers want to upgrade at that five spot, and they face competition for a couple of centers that might be available,” Shelburne explained. “If you don’t want to wait and see who’s available on the buyout market then you could get creative. Maybe they have a couple of young players that people like, Talen Horton-Tucker, Alex Caruso. I know Lakers fans will freak out...

    Good news in the infirmary at Real Madrid. Marcelo, Valverde, Odriozola and Rodrygo They worked out together with their colleagues in Saturday’s session and are one step away from being at the disposal of Zinedine Zidane. In the event that the evolution continues and they become part of Sunday’s training again, it would not be surprising if they could enter the call for the game against Real Sociedad on Monday. Marcelo has been injured due to a muscle tear since February 9. Initially, he was given three weeks’ leave, but he has been able to reduce the terms and is progressing well. A case contrary to that of Valverde who has been inactive since January 22 and his absence has been longer than the two weeks that were expected at the time of the injury. However, the joys are never complete and Real Madrid still won’t be able to count...
    Think of all mobiles Free Fire has opted for the “democratization” of the game and has chosen the features that work on mobile, especially in a country like Mexico, where according to the report by We Are Social and Hootsuite, there are 115 million cell phones in the country and 67% of users between the ages of 16 and 64 use them to play games. Another relevant point is that the user experience is not altered depending on the range of the mobile. If we consider Call of Duty or Fortnite they grant a very different gameplay depending on the technical capabilities of the equipment, the internal memory, RAM or the screen size play a crucial role with the performance of the game. However, Free Fire, by having graphics without great levels of detail and with a minimum requirement of 500 Mb of capacity, allows all users to...

Both have played key roles for the Nats in recent years, especially during their World Series run. They are two of the most popular players in Washington, unsurprisingly, and fans are hoping they’ll stick around for their entire careers, if possible. According to the man who helps make those sorts of decisions, the Nats are also keen on keeping Soto and Turner around for a while. “They’re both our kind of players, both homegrown guys, and you know we got Turner in a trade but he was a 21-year-old player that came through our system quickly and been a great player for us”...
    TAMPA — Aaron Boone said the Yankees’ first spring training game will be seven innings, as part of Major League Baseball’s spring training protocols. Beginning Sunday — when the Yankees host the Blue Jays at Steinbrenner Field — games through March 13 may be shortened to five or seven innings if both teams agree. With fewer players in camp and available to play, teams might have a hard time getting nine innings out of their pitching staffs early on. Boone said he expects the Yankees’ first three or four Grapefruit League games to be seven innings and is not concerned about getting players enough work throughout the spring. “We should be able to, [since] we have the luxury of live BPs,’’ said Boone, adding they could add B games if they need to later in the spring. From March 14 until the regular season, games can be shortened only...

    Sierra Canyon star Bronny James revealed he suffered an injury a few weeks ago during practice. He mentioned he had torn his meniscus on a Twitch stream, and that that was the reason behind him being out of action recently. According to ESPN and the Los Angeles Daily News, Bronny has now undergone surgery for this injury. That will most likely rule him out of the season but will give him ample time to rest and recover. The 6’2 combo guard played all 34 games for the Sierra Canyon Trailblazers, but because of his reduced role, he averaged only 4.1 points in 15 minutes per game. Should the Sierra Canyon Trailblazers be worried? A torn meniscus is a common injury in basketball, and many NBA players like Chris Paul and Derrick Rose have suffered from it. While injuries are never good for anyone, a positive is that most of these...

    Twin stick shooters, tower defense games and zombies all seemed to be popular at once a decade ago. The genre that uses two analog sticks to move and fire was easy to learn but hard to master. That was a way for indie studios such as Housemarque to make a name for themselves. The tower defense concept gave birth to hits such as “PixelJunk Monsters” while the shambling undead were the enemy du jour. They were in everything from “Resident Evil” to “Left 4 Dead.” Several games have combined one or the other — “Plants vs. Zombies” comes to mind — but few have mixed all three. Ember Entertainment does that with “Survival Z,” a controller-friendly title for Apple Arcade. It puts players in the role of a survivor during the zombie apocalypse. From there, players face levels where they first plan out the type defenses they want to...

    Earlier this week, New York City joined several cities in reopening indoor sports arenas to a limited number of fans. NBA legend Shaquille O'Neal told CBS News in an interview that he hopes it's a "sign we might be turning a corner" in the fight against the pandemic.  After most of the NBA started out the season with no fans, local laws now permit many teams to have fans to cheer them on — or boo them — in person. Since Tuesday, the New York Knicks and Brooklyn Nets have had a 10% capacity limit for fans to watch them play at their respective home arenas, after playing almost a year without them in the stands.  O'Neal, who played nearly 20 seasons in the league, knows first hand what having fans means to players.

And the squad hope the secret weapon means they won’t get cold feet in the battle for a top-four finish this season. 4Chelsea players have been putting their boots in the microwave before matchesCredit: The Sun 4Chelsea players - pictured here are Ben Chilwell and Mateo Kovacic - hope their warm boots can give them an advantageCredit: Getty Images - Getty The microwave is in the home dressing room at the club’s Stamford Bridge ground and even has a timer which pings when their boots are ready. It is also unplugged and taken on the team bus to domestic away games and is an integral part of pre-match preparations. The oven is used to soften the players’ boots and make them more supple and comfortable to wear. A club insider said: “Modern football boots seem to be...
    A Texas woman was killed after a tire flew off another vehicle and struck her windshield Intel report finds Saudi prince approved Khashoggi murder The tactic WNBA players used with such success that it flipped the balance of power in the U.S. Senate was on display when the final chapter of the league's Kelly Loeffler saga closed Friday. Loeffler, the embattled former Dream co-owner and ex-senator, was barely mentioned by league commissioner Cathy Engelbert nor the new ownership group that includes former Dream player Renee Montgomery. And when questions were posed about her, the participants re-directed. Engelbert — who made arguably her most direct comment on the situation — as well as Montgomery, the league and its players are ready to move forward. That means more social justice work and a relationship in which values between the W, its players and its owners align. Engelbert thanks Dream after new...
    Bungie will begin to improve Destiny 2’s player-versus-player experiences later this year, assistant game director Joe Blackburn wrote in a new blog. The team plans to eliminate obnoxious practices like “three-peeking,” and will balance subclasses, increase security, and overhaul the Trials of Osiris reward structure. First up is the removal of three-peeking. Three-peeking is a unique cheese tactic in Destiny 2 that utilizes swords and emotes. When Destiny players pull out a sword — even when they don’t have ammo — or use an in-game emote, the game switches to a third-person camera. This isn’t an issue in most activities, but in competitive multiplayer matches, it allows players to peek around corners. With Destiny being a first-person game, three-peeking provides players with a lot of additional intel about where their enemies are. Everyone can do three-peeking, but it’s viewed as a cheap or “try-hard” tactic in the community —...
    Getty Philadelphia Eagles receivers Travis Fulgham and Jalen Reagor are predicting big things for the offense in 2021. Philadelphia Eagles wide receivers Jalen Reagor and Travis Fulgham combined for 935 receiving yards in 2020. They expect those catch numbers to increase dramatically with Jalen Hurts under center. And Philly fans need to stop stressing out. The two players seem overly confident in the direction that new coach Nick Sirianni is leading the offense. On Friday, Fulgham took to Twitter to calm the green masses by instructing them not to worry about the Eagles’ offense. Reagor immediately chimed in with an emphatic “at all.” AT ALL. https://t.co/A17veVUz5g — Reag (@jalenreagor) February 26, 2021 And why shouldn’t they be mildly bragging in February? Both players should have big roles in 2021 even if the Eagles take a wide receiver in the first round. Fulgham was arguably the top...
    RICHIE WELLENS knows one of the best ways to get into a player’s head is to get a drink into him. And if he could do that with his whole team, he might be able to break the mental block that he fears could cost him and Salford City promotion. 4 How Richie Wellens’ pub sign might look Getty Images - Getty 4 Richie Wellens’ Salford are having an inconsistent season in League Two But the normal getting–to–know-you exercise he and most managers use to build team spirit and understanding is still impossible because of Covid restrictions. Wellens, who quit Swindon for the Ammies on November 4, would by now have had a few nights  out with his squad and staff. He declared: “Getting the lads out for a bite and a bit of a bevvy is a great way to find out what makes each individual tick....
    Getty Donta Hightower It is almost impossible to quantify how much the New England Patriots missed some or all of the eight players who opted out of the 2020 NFL season due to concerns about COVID-19. While their absences undoubtedly took a huge chunk out of the team’s performance last season, recent reports indicate the most significant players who were a part of the opt-out group are coming back in 2021, per NFL.com’s Ian Rapaport. Free agency hasn’t started, but the #Patriots are already getting some reinforcements. Their key opt-outs from 2020 — including LB Donta Hightower, S Patrick Chung, and OT Marcus Cannon — are planning to be back for 2021, sources say. Physically, all are in a good place. — Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) February 26, 2021 Follow the Heavy on Patriots Facebook page for the latest breaking news, rumors, and content!     Also Read:...
    RELEGATION dogfights are nothing new to Steven Alzate. In fact, his introduction to professional football was a scrap for survival — and one far graver than Brighton face this season. 6Steven Alzate is calling on his experience at Leyton Orient to help Brighton seal survivalCredit: Rex Features 6The Colombian made his debut for the League Two side four years agoCredit: Getty The Albion midfielder, 22, made his bow four years ago playing for Leyton Orient in League Two. To call it a madcap campaign would be a huge understatement, as the O’s dropped out of the Football League to the backdrop of internal chaos. Alzate reflected: “I remember that season being a bit hectic, a bit crazy. I must have had at least four different managers. “At one point, quite a few of the youngsters got chucked in to play because the squad wasn’t getting paid, so a few players...
    FIFA describe the current power of football agents as “the law of the jungle” with “conflicts of interests rife and exorbitant ‘commissions’ being earned left and right”. Bearing in mind football agents earned £470million in fees in 2019 — four times more than in 2015 — it’s not hard to see how they have come to this conclusion. 2Daniel Kinahan is entering the world of football as an agent The irony is that it was Fifa who planted the trees that they now wish to bulldoze to the ground, with what look like suitable new regulations for agents. This includes caps on fees, more transparency, a licensing system, avoiding conflicts of interest and maintaining high professional standards, all of which should benefit everyone involved in the game. But hold on there… The rewards of being an agent are so remunerative that others are emerging from the darkness wanting a piece...
    Some of board gaming’s smallest genres are also some of its most interesting, and that’s certainly true of dating games. The genre goes all the way back to the 1960s, with the classic — and wildly problematic — Mystery Date. But Mondo Games (Unmatched) has launched a colorful new contender. It’s called Dream Crush, and it’s one of the most intriguing games to come out this year. The driving mechanic in Dream Crush is a light narrative storytelling engine. Players secretly choose one of three nonplayer characters (NPCs) to be their crush each round, and then they draw a card. On that card is a complication. Perhaps the NPCs invite you to be on their bar trivia team, or maybe you need to co-sign a lease with them. Next come the secrets — tiny tidbits about each crush that you learn over time. Secrets are divided into multiple categories: Accolades,...

Loeffler wrote a letter to the league asking that those slogans be replaced by American flags. The WNBA players decided they wanted her out. Now, months later, she’s gone. The Atlanta Dream has been sold to a new ownership group. And the best part? Renee Montgomery, a former Dream star, is part of the group. She...

(Photo by Maddie Meyer/Getty Images) The Baltimore Ravens are aiming toward the future of the offseason, and the team might have some tough choices to make in the coming days about what happens to their roster. Like most teams in the NFL, the Ravens have some tough choices to make about who stays and who goes given the financial realities that exist. Obviously, the Ravens are going to have some bigger moves to be made in the coming weeks and months, so it’s more than possible there will have to be significant changes in order to help facilitate those moves. So what happens? Recently, Pro Football Focus and writer Brad Spielberger put together a...

The NFL approach to the eligibility shift was to expand the opt-out window for players who have declared for the draft until March 1 (Monday). According to ESPN, the NBA requirement was approved by the league office because the NCAA's new approach changed the definition and application of "eligible players" for NBA draft consideration. Current NBA collective bargaining agreement language grants graduating college seniors who exhausted their...
    Former United States Senator Kelly Loeffler's tumultuous tenure as a WNBA team co-owner has ended as retired league star Renee Montgomery and other investors have been approved to buy the Atlanta Dream.  A sales price for the WNBA franchise has not been disclosed. In addition to Loeffler, Dream co-owner Mary Brock is also selling her shares.  Loeffler, a Republican appointed to the senate in 2019 by Georgia Governor Brian Kemp, lost a runoff election to Democrat Raphael Warnock in January after clashing with league players over the Black Lives Matter movement. Loeffler objected to players kneeling in protest of racism during the national anthem, which resulted in a coordinated effort by much of the league to support Warnock's candidacy.  Former United States Senator Kelly Loeffler's tumultuous tenure as a WNBA team co-owner has ended as retired league star Renee Montgomery (left) and other investors have been approved to buy the...
