Overwatch Map Glitch Allows You To Explore Next Level In Nepal

Thanks to a glitch, two Overwatch players have uncovered a way that allows you to jump to Nepal's next level, which is fully loaded in the far distance on another section.

In the video below, the players use two Mercys to methodically drift outside of the map's normal boundaries, to land on an entirely other area. The section explored below is usually only playable during a later round, but now you can immediately check it out at your leisure. While glitching your way to the next section requires some tricky maneuvering, it's a fun glitch that might not be around for much longer, as Blizzard may fix it with an upcoming patch.

When using this glitch, there are certain functions of the game that don't work. For example, you can't capture points there. However, you can still switch between heroes at starting bases. Health packs can also be found around the map as they normally would.

Pokémon Go Player Claims He Hit Level Cap Using Bot

Pokémon Go player Ra1nDr0pz has laid claim to being the first player in the world to hit the game's level 40 cap. Up until now the feat has seemed impossible, given how slow leveling is.

And, as it turns out, the accomplishment very well might be out of reach right now. Ra1nDr0pz, who goes by the name Problemz on Reddit, posted an image of his achievement on the forum (which you can see below), but later revealed he cheated and used a bot to max out his character level. He's asked Niantic to delete his account, and said he didn't partake in any gym battles, saying "I dont want to take anyone of the fun out of this game.
If you do PVP (no matter which game) play legit or don't play."

If this level 40 claim is true, Problemz says players need to farm five million experience points to move from level 39 to 40. Progression from level zero to 40 requires players earn 20 million XP. This mirrors data mined information we reported on over the weekend.

Using the bot, Problemz says he was earning 280,000 XP an hour, on average. He used a total of 131 Lucky Eggs to double the XP during the leveling process.

Problemz refuses to sell the account, despite numerous people asking if they could purchase it from him. He also won't reveal any details about the bot he used. The images above and below are from Problemz account, and show just how big his Pokémon got at the end of his play time.

 

Our Take
Given how greatly the XP increases for each level in Pokémon Go, Niantic
clearly envisions players sticking with this game for years. Will it have the content to back it up? That's the big question on everyone's mind, and the radio silence on updates from Ninantic at this point are worrying, although the trailer makes it look like we will at least get trading and some form of a raid in the future.

One Tamriel To Let Elder Scrolls Online Players Explore Entire World At Any Level

One of the biggest challenges of MMOs is going through the grind of leveling to get to the best content. With a new feature called One Tamriel, ZeniMax Online Studios hopes to remove level zoning.

With One Tamriel, once players get through the tutorial, they'll be able to explore the entire world at any level. This not only gives them the ability to explore the entire world without fear of being mismatched, but also play with other quest-goers regardless of how much more experienced they are.

One Tamriel is set to come to Elder Scrolls Online this fall.
