Arcade Spirits is coming to Steam on February 12th, 2019
12.16.2018 00:00:09 PQube and developer Fiction Factory Games are pausing the synthwave tunes for a moment to reveal the release date of Arcade Spirits. Yes, that's right, the game is coming to Steam on February 12th, 2019.
Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Zero Abilities Breakdown
In case you didn’t know, Treyarch released a new Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Specialist this week on PS4, and her name is Zero. Players can unlock Zero by earning the first tier in the Operation Absolute Zero Contraband stream.
As for the abilities of the Black Ops 4 Zero Specialist character, she has the EMP Disruptor as her Special Issue, and the Ice Pick as her Weapon, which are both used to confuse, disorient and hack the enemy rather than downright be lethal.
With Zero’s abilities focusing more on hacking instead of outright killing enemies, some might be wondering how her skills react to scorestreaks, abilities and more. Thankfully, we now have the answer to that. We list down how each scorestreak and Specialist ability behaves against her EMP and Ice Pick, and you might be surprised at the results.
Aside from affecting the HUD of the enemy, the Disruptor also stops people from using their Specialist ability for the duration of the EMP grenade (around five seconds), though if you already have it out, you can continue using it. It can work through walls and has a pretty big generous AoE (area of effect). Each enemy tagged (hit) with the EMP will grant the Zero user 10 points each.
Stops Firebreak’s Reactor Core.
Destroys Seraph’s Spawn Beacon even through walls, as long as the AoE is within the radius.
Destroys Torque’s Razor Wire as long as within AoE.
Will negate the microwave effect of Torque’s Barricade, though the Barricade itself will still be usable.
Destroys Nomad’s Mesh Mines as long as within AoE.
Destroys Crash’s Assault Pack as long as within AoE.
Destroys Prophet’s Seeker Mine as long as within AoE.
Destroys Recon’s Sensor Dart as long as within AoE.
Destroys any equipment in its AoE.
Trophy System can be destroyed by the EMP as long as it’s not thrown within line of sight. If you want to destroy the Trophy System, throw the EMP close to a wall where the Trophy System is, or somewhere near it and the EMP’s generous radius will destroy it.
RC-XD won’t be destroyed by the EMP even with a direct hit.
Sentry Guns will be disabled but not destroyed. Note that the Sentry Gun will not fire even when the effects of the grenade are done.
Disables the Mantis but not destroys it.
Drone Squad will get destroyed ASAP when it’s within the EMP’s AoE.
Note that the EMP cannot affect aerial scorestreaks (Strike Team is not affected in any way as well).
How to counter the EMP Disruptor:
Equipping Tac Mask (perk 1 tier) will negate any effects of the EMP.
Will affect entire enemy team’s HUD, prevent them from using any scorestreaks, abilities, weapons. For the HUD, it will show enemy dots on the enemy mini map even if there aren’t any, life, ammo counter and more will all show random numbers. Note that when damaged during the Ice Pick hacking time, players will not be able to heal as well. It’s most powerful use however, is destroying or hijacking scorestreaks! We’ve compiled the list below on what it hacks and destroys. The Ice Pick duration lasts 30 seconds and once activated, Zero will show up on the enemy mini-map while it’s active, and there is NO known counter to the Ice Pick as far as we know.
Ice Pick Effect on Specialist Abilities and Equipment:
Will hack and make Torque’s Barricade yours with a full microwave effect.
Will hack and make Recon’s Sensor Dart yours.
Will hack and make Nomad’s Mesh Mine yours.
Will hack and make Crash’s Assault Pack yours.
Will hack and make Prophet’s Seeker Mine yours (which will attack the enemy team).
Will destroy the Seraph’s Spawn Beacon.
Will hack and make the enemy’s Trophy System yours.
Ice Pick Effect on Scorestreaks:
Dart -Destroys it.
RC-XD – Destroys it.
UAV – Hack and make it yours.
CUAV – Hack and make it yours.
Care Package – Hack and make it yours (meaning: you can pick it up super fast and you can see it on the map as if you’re using the Engineer perk).
Lightning Strike – No effect.
Sentry Guns – Hack and make it yours.
Hellstorm Missile – Can be destroyed if you happen to call it in when the enemy Hellstorm calls theirs in.
Drone Squad – Hack and make it yours.
Snipe’s Nest – Destroys it.
Mantis – Destroys it (surprisingly).
Tresher – Destroys it.
Attack Chopper – Hacks and make it yours.
Strike Team – No effect at all.
Gunship – Destroys it (will take longer than usual).
As you can see from Zero’s abilities, she’s definitely a pain in the ass to fight against, and definitely game-changer in most objective-based modes. My advice? Use scorestreaks like Care Package, Hellstorm, Lightning Strike, and others that she can’t hack or destroy immediately, or wait for her to use her Ice Pick and then use your high scorestreaks so it’s safe from being hacked.
Are you playing as Zero? What do you make of her abilities so far? Is she too overpowered? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below. We hope our Black Ops 4 Zero guide has been useful and if so, do let us know too.
Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Jungle Map Missing From All Modes, Treyarch Silent About It (Update)
Treyarch has finally addressed it and mentioned that Jungle will be back after the studio fixes a few issues with how ladders work in the map.
Per Treyarch: “We’ve temporarily pulled Jungle from rotation to address a gameplay issue with ladders, and will return it to its rightful place in our next update.”
While Treyarch rolled out game fixes, balance tweaks and more in its latest major update for Call of Duty: Black Ops 4. it seems something bad happened along the way too. For some unknown reason, the Black Ops 4 Jungle map has gone missing after the update, and no one knows why.
Over on Reddit, the community are all scratching their heads and wondering why the Black Ops 4 Jungle map missing from rotation bug exists, and what’s the cause of it. Treyarch has not acknowledged the issue or gave a statement as to why this is the case. In case you don’t believe me, go boot up Black Ops 4 now and check any game mode. You’ll see that for modes like Team Deathmatch where all maps are available, the list has Jungle absent. Here’s a screenshot of the most recent game mode menu.
In the “Maps” section, you can see all maps listed, which even includes Firing Range Night and Seaside Sunset, but no Jungle. Weird, right?
We’ve contacted Activision about this and if and when we get a response, we’ll update the post. Did you notice any other stuff missing from Black Ops 4? Why do you think the map was pulled? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
Far Cry New Dawn Multiplayer - Co-Op, PvP, and Map Editor Supported?
12.15.2018 07:00:09 From GameWatcher: "Far Cry: New Dawn is looking to be one of the more interesting Far Cry titles we've had the chance of playing over the past decade or so, but many are wondering what's up with Far Cry New Dawn Multiplayer?
Far Cry New Dawn CO-OP and PvP haven't gotten much in the way of mentioning, and as refreshing as it may be for such as prominent AAA FPS to remain a singleplayer experience first and foremost, it does interest us whether Ubisoft have any plans to expound on its multiplayer features."

TKC servers are well run and every attempt is made to ensure a fun gaming environment. No racist or rude behavior is tolerated on any of our servers. TKC tries to have round the clock administration for it's servers but obviously sometimes a server will have no admin playing so if you witness any abuse for any game please attempt to report the offending players nickname, and if possible GUID here: "Server Vistors Complaint". Just give as many details as you can remember such as what the player was doing/saying. In addition cheating is not tolerated on our servers. We are protected by any of a number of different cheat tools at any given time including; VAC, steambans.com, pbbans.com, ggc-stream.com, metabans, pbscreens.com and punkbuster, depending on the game. If caught cheating your information will be submitted to the appropriate cheat tracker and you will be added to their database which will ban your Steam ID, PB GUID or EA GUID depending on the game and website.
When available we also offer ways for players, in-game, to contact admins to report bad behavior. These come in the form of game server plugins. Players will, if the server has the option available, have the option to report a player using, @report [player] [reason] or @admin [reason] to call an admin to the server. If an admin doesn't respond in a timely manner, please use the @report option so we can follow up on it later or use "Server Vistors Complaint" as mentioned above. If an admin is not available, we also try to give the players the opportunity to use @votekick [player] or @voteban [player] [reason]. This allows the guests to our server the ability to kick or temporarily ban a player who is breaking rules.
Profanity - Many of the games we play have very bad language, some don't, that should make a difference in how we enforce our rules. For that reason we are going to implement a new rule, which will seem strange at first, but there is reason behind it. Bad language will only be tolerated on Teamspeak channels for games where there is bad language in the game. In other words, since there is bad language in Bad Company 2, bad language will be acceptable in the Bad Company 2 Teamspeak channel and on the Bad Company 2 servers. On our Half-Life 2 DM Teamspeak channel and game server, bad language will not be allowed. Future games will also be handled in this manner. The reason, we do not want to exclude members with different beliefs. If I buy a game and one of the selling points for me was the fact that it did not have bad language, that should be respected. I do not want a father or grandfather having to explain bad language to their children or grandchildren because they heard profanity on a TKC Teamspeak channel they thought was free of such things.
How to deal with with Mic/Text spammers - No one wants to listen to a lot of unrelated chatter either on the game server, or Teamspeak. No one wants to see a lot of text spamming either. It's distracting to some, and in the case of Bad Company 2, causes lag problems when the text log gets too long. If someone is talking or typing too much, respectfully ask them to stop. If they continue, you may have to mute or kick them, and if they continue after that, a ban might be in order. When on Teamspeak, a certain amount of "visiting" is fine, but the gamers who want to communicate tactical information to others playing shouldn't have to constantly interrupt talk about the latest CPU, or talk of what's going on at school. If someone is talking too much and you don't feel like you want to address it, PM a clan leader and we can handle the situation.
Team Switching - In some games this is a big no-no and if you are admin for one of those games, ask the player to go back, if they don't and you have the ability, move them back manually. If you continue to have problems, kick/ban them. In other games, like Bad Company 2, team switching usually isn't as big a deal. Sometimes friends or clan members might want to play together, in that case, try to facilitate them and swap some people around. This will show you to be respectful of community and they will probably be very appreciative of your efforts. If there is a mass exodus of people from a bad team to a good team, you can mention in-game that people need to stop. If someone is ignoring you and continues to unbalance the teams, just kick them off the server. For a game like Half-Life 2, teams change after each round, so trying to put clan members together is just a waste of time, that is why team switching is considered bad.
Hacking/Cheating - This is the most overused excuse for kicking someone off of a server. Players are unjustly booted off servers all the time simply because they were too good. That is not fair. Do not base a decision on cheating on a single round, if it isn't really ridiculous score-wise, sometimes people just have great rounds. But if they continue to have an unbelievable K/D ratio, then you might need to ban them. Sometimes it might be necessary to ban someone just because they are killing the server. For me, this is the thing I hate to do the most. That person might be doing nothing wrong, other than being really good at a game. Try to put yourself in their shoes and only ban guys who are really obvious. I don't want to see anyone being banned for an aimbot because they went 29-0. I and many others have had a better score than that, it DOES happen. You have to consider how the person is playing the game. Are they playing as recon? Are they in the heli with a really good pilot? Sometimes, if you are unsure, it might be best to ask the opinion of a clan leader. Remember, visitors to our servers have the ability and a forum to complain about unjust behavior from our server admins. If someone complains about you, you want to know that you did everything by the book.
Soldier Names/Nicknames - We will not allow names that are offensive to anyone. I think we can all use our best judgement here, but if you are unsure, ask another admin what they think of the name and come to a consensus before taking action. Players using racist names should be perm banned immediately. It does no good talking to someone like that because they're only goal is to cause trouble.
Banter and Trash Talking - Now its okay to joke around, but if several players are going at it constantly on the mic or in chat just nicely ask them to stop. If it continues warn them again that if they don't stop they will be kicked, if for no other reason that mic/text spamming. If they ignore this warning then go ahead and kick them. A certain amount of this is fine as long as it's good natured, however sometimes this can lead to hard feelings so you have to use your best judgement of when something is going too far or things are starting to get out of hand.
Racist/intolerant behavior - This is a subject that we will show no mercy on. If someone is being a racist, and that means they are hating on blacks, whites, browns, yellows, whatever the case may be, they get perm banned. No warnings, no kicks, just ban them. We don't need that kind of intolerant behavior on our servers. I don't care if the person is joking, I don't care what his real intent was, if he's spewing hate speech, he's gone. This also applies to someone who is spewing hate speech against a group of people, like Muslims, Christians, agnostics, atheists whoever. We are a gaming clan. This is our hobby and it's supposed to be fun. Everyone who comes to a TKC server should be respected and able to play the game hassle free. Not everyone believes the same, and if someone can't get over it and comes to our server with an agenda that includes racist or intolerant speech, I expect you guys to bring the hammer down swiftly.
Metabans - We will use Metabans only for cheaters and will verify each ban using Cheat-O-Meter. This will ensure that we are not forcing our Metabans followers into banning players we have banned for breaking rules other than cheating. If we deem you are cheating and Cheat-O-Meter doesn't really indicate cheating and we can not find information about you or your clan tag, meaning there is no website or previous information on you as a player or clan that we can cross reference, we will ban you on our servers, but not Metabans. Clans must have a website that we can find and access to be considered legit, otherwise we will view your tags as hogwash and your suspect behavior will be deemed as cheating. Again, we will not add a ban that is not supported by Cheat-O-Meter to Metabans.
We want everyone to have the best time possible so do your best to maintain a good gaming atmosphere, then everyone can have a good time.
To join TKC you only have to read our "Code of Conduct" and then apply for membership by filling out an online application. After submitting your application you will become a "member candidate". You will be allowed to wear our tags but only as (tkc), all letters in lowercase. As you progress, as seen by our members, you will be advanced to (Tkc), then (TKc) and then finally (TKC). You will receive emails at each step with detailed instructions on what you need to do. To obtain your full membership and the right to wear the (TKC) tags, you will have to pass a vote by the TKC members. Only those members who have gotten to know you will vote. An 80% yes vote will be required for full admission. Please keep in mind that full membership takes 8 weeks.
For you to be accepted you will need to display good manners, sportsmanship, and the ability to follow our rules. This applies to all game server activitiy and forum participation. If you do not feel you can meet our requirements we respectfully ask that you not apply as we have many who want to join and we can not waste time on gamers who are not serious about membership.
So now you're a member of TKC congrats! It is important for you to note that membership in TKC is not a lifetime privilege. Only the clan founders Big Flem and Squidward have lifetime membership and can not be removed. Clan leaders expect it's members to participate in clan activites when they can, and to be an ACTIVE member in the clan. We consider active members to be members who regularly post on the forums, participate in clan activities when possible, and communicates and develops friendships inside the clan. We do NOT consider a member to be active if they only ever play on our servers and nothing more. The leaders of this clan work hard to organize events and if you can't support these activities, can't check and post on the forums at least once or twice a week, then you are not TKC material and eventually you will be kicked from the clan. If you do not think you can meet these requirements as a member of TKC, then please don't attempt to gain entry into the clan as you will only waste your time, and ours.
Beyond administration positions such as "Clan Leader", "Division Leader", etc, the answer is no. However we do have achievable military style ribbons and medals that can be won for various acts. You may see each members ribbon and medal "Display Case" by going to the "Members" tab and under each members profile clicking the "Awards" icon. Below is each award and how you obtain that award. Note that medals also have an associative ribbon:
Ribbons(Hover over information icon for description)
In the past TKC had too many admins on our servers and things got a little out of hand. We are not looking for any new admins, however if we feel you will make a good addition to that team we will ask you. Being a server admin is not fun and games. It requires you to WORK, and follow server administrator rules which are well defined once you become an admin. Our admins are forced to stop playing whatever game they might be playing, and work to secure and maintain server tranquility reguarly. If you are an admin that does not mean you will get to run willy nilly and ban, kick, and torture at will. Admins who do not follow our rules will be stripped of admin duties and power. In addition there are more requirements of admins such as, reguarly checking our server admins forum. Once you become an admin you will be given access to this forum and you must check and read it quite often. It is a way for admins to help one another by posting their thoughts on what is going on, who to watch closely, etc. Do not ask us constantly to be an admin, that is the surest way I know to never become an admin. Our leaders will identify the best candidates for admin duties if we think it necessary.
No. In order to have an official TKC server it must meet certain standards. In addition, we might not want a server for a particular game, and if you aren't an admin, then you shouldn't have admin authority on any server. Official TKC servers have to be setup as close to identical as possible. This means that the clan leaders must have all access to any of it's servers including the ability to restart that server, gain access via FTP and game panel. It means that the clan leaders can setup the server with it's normal settings and add the usual addons. In short, if you want to have your own server then that is fine, but don't try to name it "Boom Boom Room" or tie it in any way to TKC.
Clan TKC maintains several servers that are open to it's clan members and the public. In addition TKC has other expenses that require money. To pay the bills TKC relies on it's members and visitors to donate. Without these donations, TKC will cease to exist. Please consider donating money when you can. We do our best to use the money wisely, to invest in TKC, to invest in PC gaming.
