Another showcase for João Félix

first_imgEI Atlético needs João Félix, who before Barcelona went practically unnoticed. The Portuguese was more news for his encounter with Messi and Jordi Alba than for his game. Before Real Madrid he will have a new opportunity to prove his worth. A good game against the Madrid team would raise their morale for the second part of the season. Precisely the Portuguese lived before Madrid one of his great joys with the Atlético shirt. It was in summer, in the friendly played in New Jersey. On July 27 last year Atlético defeated Real Madrid 3-7 in a match in which the Portuguese played on the right wing. He scored a goal and it was a nightmare for the Madrid defense.João Félix has played 20 official meetings with Atlético: fifteen of the league championship, four of Champions and one of Supercopa of Spain. He has scored four goals, two in LaLiga and two in ChampIons. And gave an assist in the league championship. A somewhat poor baggage for a player of his quality and his talent. João Félix needs to make a great game in the derby. Your position could vary somewhat and start playing on the right wing, just as it happened in the summer game. That day Costa and Morata played on top, Koke and Saúl did it in the center of the field and João Félix and Lemar acted in band. Now Correa could play on tip and João Felix arrive at the attack starting from the right.Simeone believes that from now on Portuguese will begin to improve its performance. For the Atlético player it will be the first opportunity to win a title with his new team. With a contract until 2026 and with 20 years, João Félix has the opportunity to start putting his name in the rojiblanca history. Atlético signed him so that the player appears in big matches. And no one doubts him: he is prepared to perform fully. It’s time for João Félix.last_img read more

Diablo III offline play crack released in beta form

first_imgBlizzard decided the best way to protect Diablo III from piracy was to implement always-connected DRM through Battle.net. It has led to more than a few problems, thousands of angry gamers, and the threat of a few lawsuits.While all that has been playing out over the past few weeks, renowned Chinese hacking group Skidrow has been working away on a crack. The online DRM Diablo III uses, works by constantly checking to see if a user is connected while running the game. So Skidrow has developed a server emulator that makes the game think it is connected to Battle.net when in fact the gamer is playing offline.The crack is still a work in progress, but it does work in so far as allowing the game to load and run, and a beta version has been released as a torrent. It also looks like it includes a LAN play option suggesting you can still play with friends. However, because the game effectively runs online it is apparently devoid of much content at the moment. And in order for that content to be added, Skidrow would have to steal it from Blizzard’s servers and add it to their emulated server.As Diablo III isn’t available in China yet, you can imagine how popular the crack is going to be even if it doesn’t do that much yet. With the issues gamers have been having around the world, it’s likely to spread very quickly.So popular are Blizzard games in China, legitimate news website in the region are reporting the crack as a positive development. These include Tencent and the People’s Daily, who even ask users to be patient with the bugs they find in the crack.For Blizzard, it will mean alarm bells ringing. Not having the game available to buy in China means thousands of gamers will revert to attempting to crack it. Even if it leads to nothing, it opens the way for viruses to start spreading as part of torrents claiming to be the offline crack, and it will confuse more than a few gamers eager to play the game at any cost.All Blizzard can do is try and figure out how to stop the server emulation from working and updating clients with a patch. Other than that it should make sure it has bullet proof security protecting the Battle.net servers in case someone does try to steal the Diablo III gameplay content.More at Kotakulast_img read more
