We know; it's not the normal kind of game we play but we'll play anything once even if it doesn't have amazing reviews.
Genesis Gaming will storm The Legend of Edda closed beta and destroy all of the content before us; hopefully the game has some kind of PvP so we can pub-stomp the opposition.
Feel free to tune in and ask any questions you might have in chat; or join under the Genesis Gaming banner for the event! PM Icaras in-game; we're on Titan.
Join us @ 29th; Thursday November 7PM GMT

If you ask anyone who is relatively high elo, people who make videos about league of Legends, commentators and even Rioters if ELO hell exists; they all say it doesn't exist.
I was talking to GG.Infinitus about how ELO hell doesn't exist but it does in a sense; but in an exact opposite way. The most classic reasoning behind believing ELO hell exists is "No matter how well I play, I could go 10-0 I will still lose because of my team mates" This reasoning is wrong but is the exact reason why 'elo hell' effects some people.
ELO hell isn't alive because of ELO being used as a 1v1 algorithm it exists because of players mindsets and lack of responsibility. The very complaint that ELO hell exists is probably what's keeping them low ELO in the first place. Understand
I figured i'd write about the changes to the Season 3 Jungle as I jungle for my team on Genesis Gaming even if I did start to hate it as it basically became a tank-support role instead of ganking and carrying all three lanes. In season 2 Jungling was all about starting with 3 pots and boots; grabbing buffs getting 1 gank in and then build as a tank.
I think everyone noticed how if you had a tank jungle; you'd probably win because they could buy oracles; clear wards all day and not die with it and simply pressure everyone by the fact there is no wards on the map which makes people panic; but no more!
Season 3 brings a lot of new changes encouraging a harder jungle but less typical AoE tanks and more hyper carries. The new items and starting items are a real help to this. Let

GW2 – New Update: This is Halloween…
Guild Wars 2 has just sent out it’s biggest patch since launch; the Halloween patch. While it isn’t all for Halloween content a large amount of the changes are very festive in honour of an old human, the mad king. Now Tyria is under the shadow of the mad king, but it’s Halloween!
Before I get on to my thoughts of how this update has been handled, how festive it feels and if it’s even fun at all, let’s talk changes.
For about a week Tyria will be under the shadow of the Mad King which is a 4 act story/dynamic event that you can take part in. Each act lasts about 3 days or so you won’t get left behind but what else have we got?
Black Lion chests have been changed so they actually contain something rare and useful, weapon and shoulder pad skins which are all Halloween themed, from the “Greatsaw” which is a greatsword shaped like a chain saw to the Deathly Bull Shoulder pads. All of these skins look amazing and their price is already sky high let a
Sevencore – Beta Impressions: So yesterday
Sevencore is the latest MMORPG gPotato have released to the general public. It’s a free2play RPG with the tag line “Forces under the reign of yesterday” Yesterday indeed.
Let’s start of by saying that this is a beta impressions review. So 5-10 hours of game play during gPotato’s closed beta. That means it’s 100% based on my opinion as a gamer of 7 years and the time I spent within that game. So let’s jump right in to it!
I decided to play this game with a party of friends so we’d have a full party to clear content with. I lead Genesis Gaming a competitive PvP/completionist guild; so we went at the game with a little bit of speculation and experience. We started the game with the character creation screen which unlike most games of its calibre is pretty customizable but probably for the wrong reasons. I decided to take it apon myself to make a freak of nature that looked like a giraffe, success!
After we had all made our characters
Hi, I'm Icaras, or Alexander. I'm the leader of Genesis Gaming, a previously dominating force in the free2play MMORPG market, currently transitioning into a community and competitive team in League of Legends, Guild Wars 2 and Starcraft II, a couple of my friends said it'd be good for me and maybe for others to find interesting if I post my week to week happenings, in real life and in the virtual world of what goes on and the fun times I face.
It's Monday and we've just finished with Beta Weekend Event 2 of Guild Wars 2. The beta weekends, for me are a chance to get a look at the competitive scene before it even begins. The first weekend was me exploring game mechanics, W3 and the guild system. This week, it was about me and pushing forward the team. We explored lots of poss
I'll be streaming the entirety of the Guild Wars 2 Beta Weekend Event 2 on behalf of MMOSite!
I'll be streaming most of the weekend, however we have a couple of other streamers so you can watch other point of views. Ventrilo will be on all streams so bad language might be apparent so if that kind of thing offends you, feel free to watch but mute the stream!
We'll be looking at chat all weekend so if you don't have access and watch something specific, request it!
Or if you do have access, come to Desolation and join us!
Steel Series Guild Wars 2 Gaming Peripherals
Steel Series have just released their own brand of Guild Wars 2 themed gaming peripherals. This brings me on to an interesting topic as well, so I figured i’d mix in some news with a discussion and sees what you guys think.
Based on the Steel Series Kana, the GW2 mouse has been designed with white and red colours to match the theme of Guild Wars 2, featuring the same great functions and a guild wars theme. Thanks to the support of the Steel Series Engine software, you can record even extremely long and advanced macros to the Guild Wars 2 Gaming Mouse. The macros can not only be layered and can include keystrokes and precise timing, but they can span acro
Rooftrellen – The treant protector is finally here! If you’re like me, you’ve been waiting for this for a while and I’m pretty damn excited. Along with a great new hero comes an abundance of great game changes to make the game smoother and easier to understand. Bots have been changed, skills have been fixed and items and characters that run out now have an exp bar that slowly decreases to show how long they’re left on the map!
I think it’s definitely interesting Valve has added Rooftrellen to the champion pool this early as in Dota 1 he is a pretty powerful champion that has been nerfed so many times so it will be interested to see how he fairs in Dota 2 and what stats and numbers they give to his skills to balance him, or if they’ll leave him to dominate.
He’s a strength hero who makes a pretty great support/ganker. He’s an old favourite of mine and I can’t wait to see how he plays, here are the full patch notes.
- Added Treant Protector!
