11.21.2017 10:00:09 An excellent and beautiful world awaits players of Assassin's Creed Origins. It's just a shame that new combat system is clumsy and the addition RPG type grinding lowers the overall experience. If fixed, a step in the right direction for the series.
11.21.2017 08:00:12 CG writes: Its that time again where Activision unleash the latest Call of Duty game. We have had the stints in the future, the modern take on warfare and now a return to the realism of World War II; pastures well-trodden from times past, so why revisit again you might ask. To be fair, the ultra modern hi-tech madness of the last game was thrilling, and the game before that as well, but there is a special place for wars that actually took place in our history, plus its a chance for America to show how its influence in the war led to the allies victory. A reminder Americans have no fear in sharing time and time again. For us the pinnacle of Activisions Call of Duty WWII past offerings came with World At War, an incredibly engrossing experience filled with passion, frustration and spammy grenades. The question remains then can COD WWII top this?

A range of games from other publishers are on sale, too, including The Lego Movie Video Game, Watch Dogs 2, This War of Mine, Far Cry 4, The Division, Farming Simulator 17, Inside, and The Witcher: Wild Hunt. Go to Origin's website here to see all of the deals and find out what they cost in your local currency. The sale ends at 10 AM PT on November 28.
The American metal band Origin, which was formed in the late '90s--many, many years before EA launched its Origin platform in 2011--has also kicked off a Black Friday sale. You can see a full rundown of the band's discounted items here on their label's website. To date, EA has not partnered with the band Origin, which seems like a missed opportunity.
Black Friday itself is right around the corner; you can check out GameSpot's in-depth coverage of all the notable deals through the links below.
With Sledgehammer Games announcing that their Call of Duty: WWII data shows players are having “more fun” with COD: WWII’s 50 points per kill in Domination, it seems they have more data to share, and this one involves spawns in team deathmatch (TDM).
According to Sledgehammer Games boss Michael Condrey, the bad spawn rate in COD: WWII is at a “franchise-setting low.”
Actually, based on many billions of spawn data points, we know our bad spawn rate is franchise setting low in this game. Less than 3 per 1000 spawns.
Actually, based on many billions of spawn data points, we know our bad spawn rate is franchise setting low in this game. Less than 3 per 1000 spawns.
While I’ve mostly played Domination in COD: WWII, whenever I played TDM, I did notice some iffy spawn situations where I either got shot immediately from behind, or I spawned directly at an enemy’s back netting a super easy (but unfair) kill.
Do you agree with Condrey that hte bad spawn rates in COD: WWII are at a franchise low? Let us know what you think of it in the comments.
Call of Duty: WW2 - All The Division Prestige Weapons
The Most Prestigious
Call of Duty WWII's prestige ranking system is similar to previous iterations in the series, but this time includes more areas to max out than ever before. New to Call of Duty's multiplayer are the five separate divisions that incorporate their own prestige leveling system.
Although prestiging divisions resets all the class specific perks you've earned, the first prestige level unlocks a unique division specific weapon. The five weapons (not including their cosmetic weapon variants with added bonuses) are the Infantry's SVT-40, the Airborne's MP-40, the Mountain's KAR98K, the Armored's MG-42, and finally the Expeditionary's Sawed-Off Shotgun. These weapons can not be unlocked with rank tokens or found inside loot crates, so your only option is to grind in multiplayer.
Leveling each of your divisions to the first prestige level is not only a time-consuming process, but it also forces you to dive into classes you might not be inclined to normally play. Here are all five prestige weapons and a couple of its variants, as well as our thoughts on which divisional prestige weapons are worth your time. Be sure to check back often as we update this feature with more prestige weapon variants.
Semi-automatic weapons are a bit underpowered in Call of Duty: WWII, but the Infantry's SVT-40 is still the best of the bunch. Even though the SVT-40 has a low rate of fire, it makes up for it in damage. Deadly from both the long to medium range, a mere two shots typically takes down your opponents.
SVT-40 Variant: O.A.O.
The O.A.O. grants you a 10% Soldier XP Bonus for every kill.
Airborne Division: MP-40
The Airborne's MP-40 is a must-have. Even without additional attachments, the MP-40 deals significant damage with a high rate-of-fire and light recoil. If you are a fan of submachine guns, the MP-40 is the gun for you.
MP-40 Variant: Do-Re-Mi II
The Do-Re-Mi II grants you a 15% Solider XP Bonus for every kill.
Do-Re-Mi II (Equipped)
Armored Division: MG 42
The Armored class many not include a tank in its loadouts, but it does bring some big guns to the frontlines. And of all the LMG's offered, the Armored's MG-42 stands outs. Combining the best sight picture with decent reload speeds and good ammo capacity, the MG-42 is the most well-balanced light machine gun offered in the game. Not to mention is is quite powerful.
MG 42 (Equipped)
Mountain Division: KAR98K
Although the M1903 is Call of Duty WWII's most powerful sniper in terms of damage and range, the Mountain's KAR98K is only slightly less powerful. Its higher accuracy and large "one-shot-kill" zone makes the KAR98K worth your time if you spend most of your time stealthily sniping around the battlefield.
Expeditionary Division: Sawed-Off-Shotgun
If there was a single weapon in Call of Duty WWII that disappoints at almost every level, it would be the Expeditionary's Sawed-Off Shotgun. It's weak damage and terrible range makes it underwhelming in every regard. Your best bet is to stick with its big brother, the M30, or take advantage of the Combat Shotgun's increased ammo capacity.

Assassins Creed Origins shakes up the franchise in fantastic ways | Entertainium
11.20.2017 19:00:12 "Assassins Creed Origins turned out to be one of the biggest surprises in an already amazing year for videogames. Ubisoft saw it as a chance to do what the last decade of open world games have been doing ever since the original Assassins Creed by unapologetically borrowing the best elements from other successful games while keeping the very best core AC elements. And it works brilliantly thanks to a really well developed setting and story, but most importantly, constraint. It respects your time and effort by delivering excellent moments and rewards all throughout the game. Assassins Creed needed a shake up and Origins is exactly that." - Eduardo Reboucas, Entertainium
TKC servers are well run and every attempt is made to ensure a fun gaming environment. No racist or rude behavior is tolerated on any of our servers. TKC tries to have round the clock administration for it's servers but obviously sometimes a server will have no admin playing so if you witness any abuse for any game please attempt to report the offending players nickname, and if possible GUID here: "Server Vistors Complaint". Just give as many details as you can remember such as what the player was doing/saying. In addition cheating is not tolerated on our servers. We are protected by any of a number of different cheat tools at any given time including; VAC, steambans.com, pbbans.com, ggc-stream.com, metabans, pbscreens.com and punkbuster, depending on the game. If caught cheating your information will be submitted to the appropriate cheat tracker and you will be added to their database which will ban your Steam ID, PB GUID or EA GUID depending on the game and website.
When available we also offer ways for players, in-game, to contact admins to report bad behavior. These come in the form of game server plugins. Players will, if the server has the option available, have the option to report a player using, @report [player] [reason] or @admin [reason] to call an admin to the server. If an admin doesn't respond in a timely manner, please use the @report option so we can follow up on it later or use "Server Vistors Complaint" as mentioned above. If an admin is not available, we also try to give the players the opportunity to use @votekick [player] or @voteban [player] [reason]. This allows the guests to our server the ability to kick or temporarily ban a player who is breaking rules.
Profanity - Many of the games we play have very bad language, some don't, that should make a difference in how we enforce our rules. For that reason we are going to implement a new rule, which will seem strange at first, but there is reason behind it. Bad language will only be tolerated on Teamspeak channels for games where there is bad language in the game. In other words, since there is bad language in Bad Company 2, bad language will be acceptable in the Bad Company 2 Teamspeak channel and on the Bad Company 2 servers. On our Half-Life 2 DM Teamspeak channel and game server, bad language will not be allowed. Future games will also be handled in this manner. The reason, we do not want to exclude members with different beliefs. If I buy a game and one of the selling points for me was the fact that it did not have bad language, that should be respected. I do not want a father or grandfather having to explain bad language to their children or grandchildren because they heard profanity on a TKC Teamspeak channel they thought was free of such things.
How to deal with with Mic/Text spammers - No one wants to listen to a lot of unrelated chatter either on the game server, or Teamspeak. No one wants to see a lot of text spamming either. It's distracting to some, and in the case of Bad Company 2, causes lag problems when the text log gets too long. If someone is talking or typing too much, respectfully ask them to stop. If they continue, you may have to mute or kick them, and if they continue after that, a ban might be in order. When on Teamspeak, a certain amount of "visiting" is fine, but the gamers who want to communicate tactical information to others playing shouldn't have to constantly interrupt talk about the latest CPU, or talk of what's going on at school. If someone is talking too much and you don't feel like you want to address it, PM a clan leader and we can handle the situation.
Team Switching - In some games this is a big no-no and if you are admin for one of those games, ask the player to go back, if they don't and you have the ability, move them back manually. If you continue to have problems, kick/ban them. In other games, like Bad Company 2, team switching usually isn't as big a deal. Sometimes friends or clan members might want to play together, in that case, try to facilitate them and swap some people around. This will show you to be respectful of community and they will probably be very appreciative of your efforts. If there is a mass exodus of people from a bad team to a good team, you can mention in-game that people need to stop. If someone is ignoring you and continues to unbalance the teams, just kick them off the server. For a game like Half-Life 2, teams change after each round, so trying to put clan members together is just a waste of time, that is why team switching is considered bad.
Hacking/Cheating - This is the most overused excuse for kicking someone off of a server. Players are unjustly booted off servers all the time simply because they were too good. That is not fair. Do not base a decision on cheating on a single round, if it isn't really ridiculous score-wise, sometimes people just have great rounds. But if they continue to have an unbelievable K/D ratio, then you might need to ban them. Sometimes it might be necessary to ban someone just because they are killing the server. For me, this is the thing I hate to do the most. That person might be doing nothing wrong, other than being really good at a game. Try to put yourself in their shoes and only ban guys who are really obvious. I don't want to see anyone being banned for an aimbot because they went 29-0. I and many others have had a better score than that, it DOES happen. You have to consider how the person is playing the game. Are they playing as recon? Are they in the heli with a really good pilot? Sometimes, if you are unsure, it might be best to ask the opinion of a clan leader. Remember, visitors to our servers have the ability and a forum to complain about unjust behavior from our server admins. If someone complains about you, you want to know that you did everything by the book.
Soldier Names/Nicknames - We will not allow names that are offensive to anyone. I think we can all use our best judgement here, but if you are unsure, ask another admin what they think of the name and come to a consensus before taking action. Players using racist names should be perm banned immediately. It does no good talking to someone like that because they're only goal is to cause trouble.
Banter and Trash Talking - Now its okay to joke around, but if several players are going at it constantly on the mic or in chat just nicely ask them to stop. If it continues warn them again that if they don't stop they will be kicked, if for no other reason that mic/text spamming. If they ignore this warning then go ahead and kick them. A certain amount of this is fine as long as it's good natured, however sometimes this can lead to hard feelings so you have to use your best judgement of when something is going too far or things are starting to get out of hand.
Racist/intolerant behavior - This is a subject that we will show no mercy on. If someone is being a racist, and that means they are hating on blacks, whites, browns, yellows, whatever the case may be, they get perm banned. No warnings, no kicks, just ban them. We don't need that kind of intolerant behavior on our servers. I don't care if the person is joking, I don't care what his real intent was, if he's spewing hate speech, he's gone. This also applies to someone who is spewing hate speech against a group of people, like Muslims, Christians, agnostics, atheists whoever. We are a gaming clan. This is our hobby and it's supposed to be fun. Everyone who comes to a TKC server should be respected and able to play the game hassle free. Not everyone believes the same, and if someone can't get over it and comes to our server with an agenda that includes racist or intolerant speech, I expect you guys to bring the hammer down swiftly.
Metabans - We will use Metabans only for cheaters and will verify each ban using Cheat-O-Meter. This will ensure that we are not forcing our Metabans followers into banning players we have banned for breaking rules other than cheating. If we deem you are cheating and Cheat-O-Meter doesn't really indicate cheating and we can not find information about you or your clan tag, meaning there is no website or previous information on you as a player or clan that we can cross reference, we will ban you on our servers, but not Metabans. Clans must have a website that we can find and access to be considered legit, otherwise we will view your tags as hogwash and your suspect behavior will be deemed as cheating. Again, we will not add a ban that is not supported by Cheat-O-Meter to Metabans.
We want everyone to have the best time possible so do your best to maintain a good gaming atmosphere, then everyone can have a good time.
To join TKC you only have to read our "Code of Conduct" and then apply for membership by filling out an online application. After submitting your application you will become a "member candidate". You will be allowed to wear our tags but only as (tkc), all letters in lowercase. As you progress, as seen by our members, you will be advanced to (Tkc), then (TKc) and then finally (TKC). You will receive emails at each step with detailed instructions on what you need to do. To obtain your full membership and the right to wear the (TKC) tags, you will have to pass a vote by the TKC members. Only those members who have gotten to know you will vote. An 80% yes vote will be required for full admission. Please keep in mind that full membership takes 8 weeks.
For you to be accepted you will need to display good manners, sportsmanship, and the ability to follow our rules. This applies to all game server activitiy and forum participation. If you do not feel you can meet our requirements we respectfully ask that you not apply as we have many who want to join and we can not waste time on gamers who are not serious about membership.
So now you're a member of TKC congrats! It is important for you to note that membership in TKC is not a lifetime privilege. Only the clan founders Big Flem and Squidward have lifetime membership and can not be removed. Clan leaders expect it's members to participate in clan activites when they can, and to be an ACTIVE member in the clan. We consider active members to be members who regularly post on the forums, participate in clan activities when possible, and communicates and develops friendships inside the clan. We do NOT consider a member to be active if they only ever play on our servers and nothing more. The leaders of this clan work hard to organize events and if you can't support these activities, can't check and post on the forums at least once or twice a week, then you are not TKC material and eventually you will be kicked from the clan. If you do not think you can meet these requirements as a member of TKC, then please don't attempt to gain entry into the clan as you will only waste your time, and ours.
Beyond administration positions such as "Clan Leader", "Division Leader", etc, the answer is no. However we do have achievable military style ribbons and medals that can be won for various acts. You may see each members ribbon and medal "Display Case" by going to the "Members" tab and under each members profile clicking the "Awards" icon. Below is each award and how you obtain that award. Note that medals also have an associative ribbon:

In the past TKC had too many admins on our servers and things got a little out of hand. We are not looking for any new admins, however if we feel you will make a good addition to that team we will ask you. Being a server admin is not fun and games. It requires you to WORK, and follow server administrator rules which are well defined once you become an admin. Our admins are forced to stop playing whatever game they might be playing, and work to secure and maintain server tranquility reguarly. If you are an admin that does not mean you will get to run willy nilly and ban, kick, and torture at will. Admins who do not follow our rules will be stripped of admin duties and power. In addition there are more requirements of admins such as, reguarly checking our server admins forum. Once you become an admin you will be given access to this forum and you must check and read it quite often. It is a way for admins to help one another by posting their thoughts on what is going on, who to watch closely, etc. Do not ask us constantly to be an admin, that is the surest way I know to never become an admin. Our leaders will identify the best candidates for admin duties if we think it necessary.
No. In order to have an official TKC server it must meet certain standards. In addition, we might not want a server for a particular game, and if you aren't an admin, then you shouldn't have admin authority on any server. Official TKC servers have to be setup as close to identical as possible. This means that the clan leaders must have all access to any of it's servers including the ability to restart that server, gain access via FTP and game panel. It means that the clan leaders can setup the server with it's normal settings and add the usual addons. In short, if you want to have your own server then that is fine, but don't try to name it "Boom Boom Room" or tie it in any way to TKC.
Clan TKC maintains several servers that are open to it's clan members and the public. In addition TKC has other expenses that require money. To pay the bills TKC relies on it's members and visitors to donate. Without these donations, TKC will cease to exist. Please consider donating money when you can. We do our best to use the money wisely, to invest in TKC, to invest in PC gaming.
