He finally changed the dynamics of Barça after leaving alive a duel as chaotic as thrilling in which the Blaugrana knew how to overcome Betis twice to win 2-3 and follow the wheel of Real Madrid. Barça is still alive.The last novelty of Setién to try to find the effect of changing that negative dynamic away from home was to rehearse a 4-4-2 with Arturo Vidal as half a point to respond to a Betis who went out to make life impossible for Barça at the exit of the ball. With Barça living on the wire, Messi appeared again at the last moment to throw away the last foul of the first part that Busquets turned into a goal after lowering the ball with his chest. After a chaotic first part, the good news for Barça was that it came out alive after skidding on each corner. The good news for Betis is that it had already detected the weaknesses of the Blaugrana defense. The team that was able to turn madness into rationality would take the game. ChangesSunrise (56 ‘, Junior Firpo), Arthur Melo (56 ‘, Vidal), Loren Morón (61 ‘, Borja Iglesias), Joaquin (69 ‘, William Carvalho), Tello (85 ‘, Guido Rodríguez), Rakitic (88 ‘, Griezmann) Betis’ bet was based on the fact that Barça’s defense was a Russian roulette. With Piqué sanctioned, Umtiti had to play yes or yes and as a left back, Alba gave up his position to Junior. Barça was an invitation to chaos and there Fekir accepted the stake and destroyed the Blaugrana defense, which was a fair. Four minutes into the game, the Frenchman stole a ball from Semedo, got into the kitchen and his shot was blocked by Lenglet. Clear penalty that transformed Channels.Next, Barça reacted by De Jong, who supported by Messi was the only one who accepted Fekir’s challenge. Three minutes after fitting 1-0, the Argentine attended the Dutchman to tie the game. It was the moment when Barça should feel the owner of the game. He had overcome the initial crisis and from then on it was a matter of patience. But not even for those that Barça knew how to calm the game, which remained mounted on a Russian roulette of nonsense. The turnovers were constant, also causing both Sergi Roberto and Busquets to play the red running backwards in a scenario that was reopened for the Fekir show, which took advantage of another loss of Vidal to score 2-1.

Madness in both areas without anyone being able to control the game. Barça had more continuity, but missed the completion of Messi, who has long fought with the goal despite continuing to play film. The Catalans alternated their dominance phases with turnovers that generated local kickbacks.To try to put order, Setién gave entry to Arthur and Jordi Alba and Barça began to encircle the goal of Joel. In the absence of success in the goal, Messi remained excellent in the assists and after throwing a foul, Lenglet scored a header that began to decide a game that Fekir could decide to see a double card in ten seconds. As great as unconscious. But not to leave the dirt alone in the transit of glory, Lenglet was ejected three minutes later. Ten against ten and Umtiti of only born center with Busquets helping him to carry out a party that demonstrates that Barça is still alive.
Valve Steam Link App Brings Your PC Games to MobileValve Index Is a Powerful VR Headset, Even Without ‘Half-Life’ Stay on target The last thing the internet needs is yet another piece of content on PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds. Over these past few months, citizens of the web have proven they can’t stop playing (or watching other people play) this online multiplayer shooter. If you somehow don’t know, the premise is 100 poor souls drop onto an abandoned island and horrifically stalk and kill each other with scavenged weapons until only one remains.Count me among those (somewhat) enthralled. I have some issues with the game, mostly centered around the frequent down time and seemingly randomly deaths if you aren’t good enough, but I also totally get why the concept is so novel. Besides, the game is too early and admittedly unfinished to “review.” However, after playing some more, my reaction towards the game crystallized in a way I thought would be worth discussing. PUBG is the Dota the shooters.Just compare their origin stories. Brendan “PlayerUnknown” Greene made his alias one worth remembering thanks to his beloved battle royale PC mods for 2013 survival shooter DayZ, which itself was a mod for 2009 military shooter Arma 2. Battlegrounds is a distillation of the concepts (along with some residual Euro-jank) Greene and his growing team at Bluehole were exploring but finally presented as its own standalone game.Meanwhile, Dota began as a mod for Blizzard’s real-time strategy game Warcraft III. It became so popular that rival PC juggernaut Valve hired key Dota designer IceFrog to help develop a sequel for Steam. Even more so than PUBG, Dota strips away elements of its ancestral genre and reworks them into something entirely new and more competitive. Both games also have a fondness for silly cosmetic items.While their basic mechanics of shooting enemies and clicking hero units seem simple enough, PUBG and Dota both require players to wrap their heads around a lot of assumed, arcane knowledge either through hours and hours of practice and/or learning from a team of masters. In a way, both games are also sort of like Monster Hunter or the Souls series. Both games wring a lot of divergent gameplay possibilities from generally static starting points. Currently, both games only have one map and always involve the same number of players, 100 players solo or in squads in PUBG and two teams of five in Dota.In Dota, you’re not just going to naturally intuit things like jungling and last hit and how certain heroes and their abilities fare against each other without an explanation. And in PUBG, with each new match you’ll gain a better understanding of how the guns fire, how to deal with your initial parachute landing, how bullets drops, how the vehicles behave, how the death circle and red zones constrict around the map, and how the map and terrain look and work in general. Plus you have to find out what all this “chicken dinner” talk is about.Both games are even typically referred to by their four-letter acronyms, although Dota 2 officially doesn’t stand for anything since Valve can’t acknowledge famous legal Blizzard property “Defense of the Ancients.”Games like this naturally foster a sense of community. By fighting each other, we’re all helping each other learn and improve. Hearing the mindless chatter of other players in the opening PUBG plane ride gets you pumped to murder them, but in the end, we’re all the same half-naked Hunger Games contestants in this together. Also, the frequent, quiet, suspenseful anticipation leaves room to crack inside jokes to relieve tension. So it’s unsurprising that PUBG has become a huge streaming phenomenon, dominating platforms like Twitch and Facebook Live (thanks to a recent exclusivity deal) as well as the general gaming mind share in a way arguably beyond what Dota once did. It even stole away some Dota streamers.To this day Valve still holds Dota tournaments with $1,000,000 payouts so if just a fraction of that success is in PUBG’s future the game should be just fine. It’s already on track to have a similar seismic impact on its own genre and spawn legions of imitators just like all the post-Dota MOBA games (League of Legends, Heroes of the Storm, Heroes of Newerth). Heck, PUBG might be even bigger, especially once it’s finished and starts hitting consoles beginning with Xbox One this fall. Its influence could be on the level of Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, which is fitting since this fall marks the ten-year anniversary of Infinity Ward’s landmark shooter that couldn’t be further away from PUBG when it comes to pacing and attitude toward death.Is this comparison a little reductive and unfair? Yeah, probably. If anything, I think I’m doing PUBG a disservice by comparing it to Dota since I think PUBG is a much, much better game. For all of the weirdness surrounding its high skill-ceiling, PUBG still works as an enjoyable and somewhat approachable mainstream multiplayer shooter. Whether you play it alone hiding in a cabin with a shotgun for 20 minutes or exploring, killing, and having slapstick antics with your squad mates until you die, no way to play is invalid. Dota’s gameplay is much stranger, stricter, singular, and full of dogma. Plus I still resent it and its ilk for replacing the real-time strategy games I actually like.Maybe my thoughts will all change if keep playing PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds. Maybe I’ll realize it’s actually the Super Monkey Ball of shooters or the Lee Carvallo’s Putting Challenge of shooters. As a shooter, something like Overwatch (also increasingly influential) probably has more explicit Dota elements, but I think PUBG embodies more of the spirit of what made Dota so original and beloved in the first place. So right now, when I think of PUBG, the other four-letter word I think of is Dota.View as: One Page Slides1/51. PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds is a online multiplayer shooter that’s taking the internet by storm.2. In terms of streaming popularity and potential impact, PUBG is beginning to rival past hits like Dota.3. Like Dota, PUBG is a spin-off to a mod of another PC game.4. PUBG and Dota both also have lots of arcane knowledge for players to learn through practice and talking to friends.5. But whereas Dota is a strange and singular thing, PUBG is also a fun and approachable multiplayer shooter.Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.
