Since then, he’s worked his way to the top of the competitive ladder, standing out as one of the very best in the game. He even reached the highest rank in North America just a day after ranked was released on the live servers. On June 1, 2021, after being crowned the champion of VALORANT’s first international LAN event in Iceland, Reykjavik, TenZ signed with Sentinels for a reported seven-figure buyout.

One VALORANT player discovered a potentially game-breaking audio bug on Ascent, posting their findings today. It appears that the game’s engine picks up the wrong footstep sound on Mid Catwalk, which can easily confuse opposing players. Dot Esports tested the bug out in a custom game and found similar results. Walking on Catwalk makes a distinct sound as an agent’s feet hit the metallic walkway. By standing on the outer edge of the ledge, however, the footsteps make a grass sound instead. For enemies holding A Tree, they might peek out and expect to see their opponent running in the grassy courtyard. This would throw off their aim and potentially cost them their life. The same audio bug also appears in Split’s B Catwalk,...

Do you sorely miss Counter-Strike? Well, absolutely nothing’s stopping you from uninstalling Riot’s character-based tactical shooter. © Provided by Dot Esports VALORANT certainly isn’t for everyone. It’s a game that requires patience, practice, and determination. It’s much slower-paced than games like Overwatch, Call of Duty, and even Counter-Strike at times, and that can get painstakingly boring for some players. But how do you uninstall VALORANT? Weirdly, it’s not as simple as it sounds. If you jump into your control panel and click uninstall, you’ll be faced with an annoying error message. There are a few extra steps you need to take before uninstalling the game. VALORANT’s anti-cheat detection system, Vanguard, first needs to be closed and uninstalled. You can close Vanguard by opening your system tray, found on the bottom right-hand side of your desktop, right-clicking on the red arrow Vanguard icon, and selecting exit. ...

But for those with a keen interest in first-person shooters—no matter if it’s Counter-Strike, Call of Duty, Overwatch, or VALORANT—it can be a real nuisance.  When mouse acceleration is applied, your cursor in-game will move in accordance with how fast you move your mouse on your mousepad, regardless of your sensitivity settings. This allows more room for inconsistency, diminishing your muscle memory, and potentially throws off your aim. The settings won’t nessecarily make you a bad player, but in most circumstances, it’s generally best to avoid.  Disabling mouse acceleration is simple. All you have to do is head to the Control Panel on your computer,...

Replay Video SETTINGS OFF HD HQ SD LO Skip Ad © Provided by Dot Esports Most League of Legends players have finally gotten used to the new look of the in-game shop that came with the 2021 preseason update, as well as all the items that came with it. Don’t get too comfortable, though, because Riot Games is planning to add two new items and one heavily reworked item to the game soon. In the most recent Ask Riot developer blog, lead game designer Jeevun “Jag” Sidhu unveiled some of the details behind the three items. First, Riot will be introducing a new Legendary tank item that will bind one player to another, similar to Knight’s Vow and Zeke’s Convergence. The twist, however, is that instead of binding to an allied player, you’ll be binding to an enemy. The item will grant the user damage reduction against that chosen enemy, as well as an added tenacity reduction aura against...

A closely fought double-elimination bracket ended with a bang in the finals when North America’s Sentinels completed the perfect run at VCT Masters Two Reykjavik, forever cementing themselves in esports history.

After dropping out of the recent 2021 LEC Spring Split playoffs to Fnatic, the team has made some significant roster changes to prepare for the upcoming season—but not in the way that many fans might have expected. There aren’t any new names in the lineup, but there are some old faces in new roles. The League of Legends team decided to move TynX out of the starting jungler position and instead have support Treatz role swap in his place for next season. Treatz’s replacement, on the other hand, will be the team’s former head coach Jesiz, who will be playing in the LEC for the first time since 2018. Before the season starts, however, SK’s top laner Jenax talked to Dot Esports about why the team went all-in with these roster changes...

When Overwatch developers want to make changes to the game or add new heroes, they often have to test their creations before launch. The Public Test Realm, or PTR, exists for players to try out these changes before they hit live servers. Although Overwatch has been stagnant as far as new heroes or maps in recent months while Overwatch 2 is developed, Blizzard still periodically rolls out a new PTR update for players to test out hero changes and more. It’s like the Experimental Card, but there’s some more work to be done to get access, and here’s how to do it. First, you have to open the Battle.net launcher and select Overwatch, as if you were launching the base game. In the bottom left of the launcher, above the “Play” button, your region will be...

    DeSantis signs bill banning transgender women and girls from sports Oklahoma imam left emotional over Jewish teens act of kindness Another new gun has been added to Call of Duty: Warzone as part of Black Ops Cold War’s season three, and it’s a pistol to be reckoned with. © Provided by Dot Esports A machine pistol that can be dual wielded, the AMP63 is reminiscent of the akimbo G18 pistols that tore up the matches of Modern Warfare 2 years ago. Similarly to dual wield pistols of the past, it’s an immediate option for the secondary slot in Warzone loadouts. Before you switch to your Overkill class, throw an AMP63 on your Ghost class and use it to clear out the close quarters areas of Verdansk. It’s not the best CQC option in the game, but the AMP63 can hold its own inside tight spaces. Here’s the best loadout for the AMP63 for your Warzone matches.

    Sequoia National Park: A hiker died after falling 500 feet from the summit of Mount Russell Chinas Xi Jinping wants to make friends with the world. But Beijing cant kick its wolf warrior habits A fourth pistol has finally been added to Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War, and it’s a beast. © Provided by Dot Esports The AMP63 is a full-auto pistol that has a “fast fire rate with improved bullet velocity and moderate recoil.” It has “reliable damage output at close range,” according to its description. This is a pretty accurate way to describe the new gun. The AMP63 suffers at range, so it’s not something you can snipe with like the Magnum. It’s best used as an emergency sidearm in close-quarters scenarios, when you can quickly switch to it to spray down an already-weakened enemy. You can also unlock the Dual Wield attachment which turns the AMP63 into a gun that’s reminiscent of the akimbo G18 in Modern Warfare 2, and other full-auto dual wield guns in COD’s history. That’s where the fun begins. Here’s...
