King Slime is a pre-Hardmode boss that you might encounter in the Forest. This is a totally optional foe that you can choose to skip. But, in case you decide to go head-to-head with King Slime, here’s a boss guide.

Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 8 is live and players have already started exploring the island once again. This time, giant purple cubes (Kevin the Cube) have been scattered all over the place. The cubes are entrances to a new place known as Sideways.

So, what are Sideways? Simply put, Sideways are essentially an alternate universe loaded with Cube Monsters. The place defies gravity, has minimal shelters and can be accessed via a portal.

PUBG Mobile: 5 best drop locations in Miramar

Posted by Nitisha Upadhye on September 12th, 2021

Miramar was the second map that was added to PUBG Mobile. Initially, the large 8x8 desert did not go down well with players with several avoiding the large battlefield altogether. Unlike Erangel, Miramar is very wide and spread out with fewer places to hide.

Interestingly, the map does not have many vehicle spawns, making it difficult to quickly travel across it. It is very likely that while you gear yourself up, the safe zone will start shrinking.

Nova Island came out of nowhere last week and really blew me away. How such a fantastic and creative card game could fly under the radar and offer up its unique battling without asking for anything in return still baffles me, but I'm here for it.

Because of its atypical mechanics and structure, though, it does take awhile to internalize strategies that make you feel like you can take control of matches and win consistently. With that in mind, here are a few tips for people coming to Nova Island on how to gain an edge over the competition.

A Scrub's Guide to League of Legends: Wild Rift - The Best Role for Beginners

League of Legends: Wild Rift is the friendliest and most accessible MOBA on mobile, but it still maintains a high skill ceiling and demands your full attention while playing. You can't just hop into games casually and assume you'll be a great addition to your team or know how to foil your opponents. It takes time and practice to familiarize yourself with champions, learn the map, and find the item builds that work best in certain scenarios.

Because of this, it is often recommended for players to choose one specific role to specialize in, and after countless matches in Wild Rift I am confident in saying that the most beginner-friendly role is that of the humble support. Read on for the reasons why as well as some tips for being a quality support for your team.

Like all popular competitions, League of Legends: Wild Rift has developed a set of unwritten rules about how to play it well. These rules are known as the metagame or "meta," and understanding why they exist and how to take advantage of them is a key step in becoming a truly competitive player.

The most important aspect of the meta to pay attention to at the moment is team composition. If you've already sunk some time into Wild Rift, it's probably been made clear to you that there are certain hero combinations that are more effective than others. Teams with players who simply pick their favorite heroes tend to be unbalanced in one way or another, and you'll likely either see that reflected in team performance or through one or more teammates complaining about the composition in chat.

I'm relatively new to League of Legends, but have played a fair amount of MOBAs in the past. Wild Rift has really captured my attention, though, and I've found myself sinking a lot of time into practicing and reading up on how to improve my game.

For anyone in a similar boat (or just new to MOBAs in general), some of the guides out there can read like a foreign language. League of Legends has existed on PC for over a decade at this point and built up its own lexicon and community that isn't always the friendliest to new players trying to familiarize themselves with the game.

In that spirit, I present: A Scrub's Guide to League of Legends: Wild Rift. This is a guide series that will chronicle my own learnings and takeaways from my time spent with the game, translated into what is hopefully helpful tips and information for others looking to do the same.
