The world is experiencing a shortage of surgical masks and respirators

The world is experiencing a shortage of surgical masks and respirators. Countries around the globe are scrambling to bulk up their mask supplies to help curb the spread of the novel coronavirus and allow medical professionals to safely treat infected patients. It’s crucial for health care workers, doctors, and nurses on the front lines of the disease to have the proper protective gear to lower the risk of contracting Covid-19, but America’s mask supply is being so rapidly depleted that even the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has suggested homemade masks, like bandanas or scarves, “as a last resort” for health care providers in “settings where face masks are not available.”

Public health officials warned about a strain in the supply chain for masks and other equipment in late February, when the pandemic started to spread in the US, which prompted regular people to snatch up medical supplies. By hoarding masks and respirators, civilians have contributed to the shortage of personal protective equipment (PPE) for health workers. (The US government is also partly to blame for overwhelming the health care system by not taking fast enough action to test citizens.) In addition, our site z2u.com has a large quantity of safe N95 Mask For Sale.

Hospitals across America are running out of supplies, and medical professionals online are urging the public to donate whatever they’ve stockpiled to local health care facilities. Masks and respirators are typically designed to be worn only once, but in the face of dwindling inventory, some health care providers are asked to re-wear their gear. Alarmed by the lack of protective equipment, doctors, nurses, and health workers are sharing anecdotes about the risk this brings to them and their patients, calling on people to donate what they can.

Earlier this week, Pence also asked construction companies to donate their mask inventory, especially respirators, to local hospitals and “forgo making new orders.” The production teams behind some TV medical dramas, like Fox’s The Resident, ABC’s The Good Doctor, and Grey’s Anatomy spin-off Station 19, have donated boxes of masks, gloves, and gowns to local hospitals. At the community level, people are using grassroots organizing tactics to find and distribute unused protective gear and supplies to local facilities, Buzzfeed News reported. ProjectN95 is just one group facilitating mask donations, and other GoFundMe-powered groups are working to import masks from China. Americans are receiving aid from abroad, most notably from Taiwan, which pledged to donate 100,000 masks a week, and Chinese billionaire Jack Ma, who donated 1 million masks and 500,000 test kits.

Windows 10’s volume controls could be getting a big overhaul in the near future

One of the most essential features of Windows 10 – the operating system’s volume controls – could be getting a big overhaul in the near future. As Windows Latest reports, a new preview build of Windows 10, Build 19577, contains code that suggests there will be new volume controls.

Back in 2018, a leak suggested that Microsoft has been planning on significantly changing Windows 10’s volume control in a future release. However, despite Microsoft updating Windows 10 several times over the years, the operating system’s volume controls have remained unchanged.At the moment, the way you control the volume in Windows 10 is pretty basic, but it looks like Microsoft is planning to radically overhaul it so that it’s much more useful.

It appears that Microsoft is planning to move all these controls to the new volume flyout, which you can access by clicking the volume icon in the system tray.Currently, taskbar flyout only allows users to control the volume of the headphone or speakers, but a future Windows 10 update will also allow you to access the media controls. In addition, our site z2u.com has a large quantity of safe Windows 10 Home Product Key For Sale.

The new flyout also shows the album cover of the music along with the app name that’s playing the music. In theory, the new flyout should work with all the existing apps that already support Windows 8 era left-aligned volume flyout.In our testing, the updated flyout launches only when we click on its icon in the system tray. It currently doesn’t support keyboard multimedia keys.

There’s a chance that the new volume controls would become available for users in the Windows Insider Program later this year, but the arrival of the updated volume bar is still uncertain.Obviously, these changes will not ship with Windows 10’s 20H1 (version 2004 update), which has been finalized and is set for public rollout in April/May 2020.

Escape From Tarkov is currently not available on Steam

Escape from Tarkov has been available in early access since 2016, slowly amassing players, but since its release it’s only been available for pre-order from the game’s official site. The survival shooter has exploded in popularity recently, having received a major update in October 2019 which introduced Hideouts as well as several new items and bug fixes, and briefly became the most viewed game on Twitch thanks, in part, to some prominent streamers picking it up over the holidays. This has many players wondering if a Steam release is planned. It’s been a while since Russian developer Battlestate Games has commented on this, but all signs suggest that Escape From Tarkov will come to Steam… eventually.

Fans seem to certainly be in favor of the idea of this video game making an appearance on Steam. In fact, some fans have even created petitions for the game to arrive on the launcher. Hopefully, the developers will take some notes rather soon. Although the video game isn’t yet available on the platform, one YouTube user has released a video of what would be like when using a Steam Controller.

The clearest evidence is from a 2016 interview with WCCFTech, in which developer Pavel Dyatlov says that the game will come to Steam once it reaches 1.0. “We will first release the game on our platform and then we will launch on Steam, that’s the plan,” Dyatlov said, also mentioning that the game could come to consoles after its PC release.

As for a release date, the FAQ states that the game will undergo some beta testing on Steam, meaning it will probably be released there sometime before the full 1.0 launch. It’s also worth noting that both versions of the game will share the same servers, so the playerbase won’t be divided based on their launcher choices. Despite a lengthy period of radio silence on the topic, Escape From Tarkov is in all likelihood still slated to get a Steam release in the future, although an exact timeframe still remains to be seen. Moreover, z2u.com provides Cheap Escape from Tarkov money for players. As an online in-game currency store for many years, we’ve received great reputation for our reliable service.

Temtem Developer Bans Almost 900 Cheaters

You might have heard about the indie hit Temtem. It’s a game “inspired by” Game Freak’s long-running Pokémon RPG series and wants to be the very best creature collection MMO on the market. While it’s still yet to arrive on the Switch, the title recently launched on Steam. On its first day, its servers crumbled under the demand and since then it’s been growing in popularity.

Now that it’s been available for a few weeks, developer Crema Games has decided to unleash its first wave of bans. According to a recent tweet by the company, it’s banned “almost” 900 players. Every user who was banned was “100%” confirmed as either a cheater or an individual who abused exploits intentionally.

Crema didn’t leave it at that, either. In a series of follow-up tweets, it said wasn’t done and would keep detecting and banning, as there’s no place in the Archipelago for cheaters. The developer then reassured followers it had re-checked over 100 accounts and explained how “every single one” was a “legit” ban.The remaining tweets informed players not to trust cheaters, as they apparently “just want to know more” about the bans, so they can avoid them in the future. If you want to Buy Temtem Pansun, we 5mmo.com can give you a very low price, welcome to buy.

Despite the double-checking, plenty of Twitter users responded taking issue with the no tolerance policy, asking for Crema to consider appeals. Based on that feedback, the developers have relented. They later tweeted saying that banned players may send an email to support@cremagames.com with the subject “Ban appeal” and including the account’s in game ID or username.

In an online game, the worry with exploits or cheats is that they can ruin the experience of other players or damage the game’s trading economy between Temtem tamers. Crema’s swift justice may seem heavy-handed, but it’s good to see them setting the tone early on. For those who genuinely believe they used an exploit unintentionally to a degree that appeared intentional, there’s now an outlet to beg a pardon.

World of Tanks developer has opened a new office in Guildford

Wargaming has opened a new office in Guildford, UK. The World of Tanks creator has hired Sean Decker to lead the new outfit, which is looking to initially house a 25-person development team. The new outfit will work on an ‘unannounced free-to-play multiplatorm MMO title’, which uses the Unreal Engine.

Decker is a 17-year video game development veteran. He spent 12 years at EA in various roles, including senior producer at Maxis (working on SimCity), Executive Producer at DICE, and then later VP and general manager at DICE (where he worked on games such as Mirror’s Edge and Battlefield). He was also VP at EA LA and VP of EA’s Play4Free label. In 2013 he joined CCP as senior vice president, working on Eve Online.

The new developer is based in Guildford, England. It technically started business in November 2018 before acquiring and incorporating the nearby Edge Case Games. However, a fire in July this year meant the developer was forced to find a new home. By the way, you can buy cheap WOT Gold from z2u.com, where you can enjoy a 3% discount by using the code “Z2U”.

That new office has now been opened and is home to 68 members of staff, with dozens more positions currently open. The company eventually wants to grow to around 150, according to studio head Sean Decker.

Wargaming UK represents an evolution of Wargaming’s network, which extends to over 4500 employees across 18 network locations. Wargaming CEO Victor Kislyi said of the launch:

“For Wargaming, the UK studio is a really exciting step in our expansion – and we are looking forward to releasing information on their new project. It is going to be big. It was a pleasure to celebrate with the team, and we are looking forward to watching them create something special.”

World of Warcraft’s increased subscriber counts following WoW Classic’s release

When World of Warcraft Classic went live in August 2019, we pondered the question of its long-term viability. Some of us believed that it would have legs, at least as long as Blizzard continued to provide updates, while others expected it to be a flash in the nostalgia pan.

It’s still early, but at this point it looks like those who bet on its durability are going to come out on top. Activision said during today’s Q4 financial presentation that World of Warcraft’s “active player community” at the end of 2019, defined as players with monthly or longer subscriptions, was more than double what it was at the end of the second quarter, less than two months prior to the launch of Classic.

PC Gamer reports that subscriber numbers have more than doubled since the launch of WoW Classic. Blizzard president J. Allen Brack made this announcement during a Q4 financial Q&A call. He says that the company is “committed” to continuing support of both retail and classic versions of the game “over the long term.” Brack says that engagement numbers for WoW Classic has been especially “strong in the East” where it enjoys particularly high levels of player retention.

Blizzard hasn’t released subscriber figures publicly since 2015, but the 2014 milestone represents a 10 million subscriber peak alongside the release of Warcraft’s fifth expansion, Warlords of Draenor, that year. The all-time record of 12 million subscribers, hit in 2010 with the release of Cataclysm, still stands.

Battle for Azeroth didn’t waste any time in smashing other records for Blizzard, though. Last month’s release quickly became the fastest-selling World of Warcraft expansion to date, with 3.4 million copies sold within 24 hours.

But elsewhere in the MMORPG space, the situation is less favourable. Wildstar developer Carbine Studios, which modelled much of its game after early versions of Warcraft, was shut down by publisher NCSoft earlier this month.

FIFA Mobile new season has an all-new gameplay engine

FIFA Mobile Soccer is currently listed as ‘Coming Soon’ on Google Play India, with the option to ‘pre-register’ to be notified when the game becomes available in the region. The game is reportedly already available in Russia, where it was probably soft-launched. The Google Play listing also contains several reviews, implying availability in more than one region. EA had announced a launch of the next FIFA mobile game this fall on both Android and iOS, so we can expect the game to hit the App Store soon as well.

Coming to iOS and Android but with a Beta only currently available on Android, the 2018 installment of FIFA Mobile keeps the real-time PvP matches, Ultimate Team, Attack Mode and live events of the previous installment and gives the engine a total overhaul. Mbappe, Messi and pals all look better than ever and they also move better than ever too with updated animations and also allowing you to pull off new skill moves like step-overs, heel-to-heel and lane changes. Also, the free-kick system has been reworked to work button on touch screens, with you tracing the ball trajectory across the screen. If you want to buy FIFA Mobile Coins, you can come to z2u.com for help. z2u.com is the best online store that has about 10 years of selling game currencies experience.

The new season of FIFA Mobile has an all-new gameplay engine that brings a “dramatically overhauled” animation system and artificial intelligence (AI) controlled players who play much more intelligently and realistically on both sides over the previous version. There are also better-looking players with authentic faces of many of the global football stars. EA has also uplifted the animation fidelity. This is claimed to help deliver an experience “with more passion and fluidity than any other football game available on mobile devices”.

More improvements to animation quality and control on defense have been included too, and a new suite of skill moves, such as step over, lane change, and heel-to-heel have been added. Finally, EA says it has added a brand new Free Kick system that should allow players to trace the ball trajectory across the screen.

EA Sports says that the game is built for the mobile gamer, and hence it has shrunk the download size to under 100MB, so as to reach smartphone owners across the globe, except China the game isn’t launching in the country. FIFA Mobile contains 30 leagues, with 650 clubs and over 16,000 footballers. Now, the game consists of 30 leagues, 650 teams, and a total of 17000 players to provide gamers with plenty of options to choose from.

WoW Classic players will soon be facing Nefarian in Blackwing Lair

World of Warcraft Classic’s third phase and halfway point is a major turning point for the game. The next update to hit Classic, scheduled to release on Feb. 12 at 5pm CT, brings a host of changes, including a new raid, reputation rewards, class quests, Eternal Quintessence, and the Darkmoon Faire.

The game has recently entered Phase 3 of that plan, with the first Battlegrounds – Warsong Gulch and Alterac Valley – having been released in December. On the PvE side of things, Phase 3 also promised the release of the Blackwing Lair raid, as well as the arrival of the Darkmoon Faire, and Blizzard have now announced when these can be expected.

This faster launch sets a precedent for how soon Blizzard is willing to release content. The last phase content was released on November 12, and the one before that was on October 15. That gives us roughly monthly updates, so we can probably expect the complete Phase 3 content to be out in early January. It’s unclear why this is the chosen time frame. It could be anything from Blizzard monitoring how fast people are engaging with the new stuff, or out of a fear that the game will lose relevance too fast. It does make you wonder what will happen once they’ve reached the final phase. In addition, if you are in need of Cheap WOW Classic Gold, you can visit our website 5mmo.com.

Putting aside the unknowns for now though, it’s a good sign that Blizzard is willing to move around the content to keep players engaged. This isn’t something you see in the live game; probably because the schedules are carefully planned as the content itself is created. With the old game, everything is relatively finished. Blizzard has a good idea of how players will react because we’ve done this all before.

With Phase 3’s content finally being delivered, World of Warcraft Classic players can start to look to Phase 4. Phase 4 will include the Arathi Basin PvP Battleground, as well as the 20-man raid Zul’Gurub. Finally, Phase 4 will add the four Green Dragon world bosses for players to hunt. There’s no currently planned timeline for the release of Phase 4 in World of Warcraft Classic.

League of Legends: Wild Rift is set to officially release next year

League of Legends is arguably one of the most prominent games for PC, with a player count of almost 120 million. Besides being among the most-played PvP titles for PC, League of Legends is also among the most popular MMO games adopted for eSports. The popularity has been evergrowing since 2009 when League of Legends (fondly called just League by patrons) was first published by Riot Games. Now, we can expect the figures to shoot through the roof as a mobile version of the game is reportedly being prepared by the Chinese internet giant Tencent.

Tencent, which owns 100% stakes in Riot Games since 2015, has reportedly been working together with the League of Legend developers for over a year now. As Riot’s founders have always insisted, the mobile version will not be an exact replica of the PC version. Instead, the familiar design of the game will be complemented with new characters. It is, however, not likely to be available this year.

Notably, Tencent has an adaptation of League of Legends called Wangzhe Rongyao (loosely translated to Honor of Kings) for smartphone gamers in China. It is one of the most popular and highest-grossing mobile games with almost 130 million players. Although Honor of Kings is limited to China, Tencent has also developed Arena of Valor on the same lines for other regions, but ironically, it has failed to gain the same momentum as its Chinese sibling. Perhaps, a namesake adaptation, just like PUBG and Fortnite (which were also ported to mobile platforms by Tencent), may help the company make a difference. If you need Buy LOL Wild Rift Accounts, you can visit our site 5mmo.com.

At the same time, the revenue generated by League of Legends has been falling due to competition and preference to titles like Fortnite and Overwatch for eSports. So, a mobile version could be a fruitful way for Tencent to revitalize earnings. For players, the new gameplay could be an altogether different experience, even though we’ll have to wait for the release to experience what it brings to the table.

Riot Games has officially announced and confirmed that League of Legends is coming to mobile devices in the form of a new version called Wild Rift. While the MOBA gameplay appears to be identical, the game has been apparently built from scratch to better accommodate the new platforms, including a twin-stick control scheme, a new map, and shorter 20-minute matches.
