Citadel Forged With Fire reworks and nerfs siege spells to help lowbies

Citadel Forged With Fire is rolling out a new patch tomorrowday, and if you’re following the early access game, you’re probably gonna wanna know what’s in it. The big change comes in the form of a siege spell rebalance, the product of a lot of “feedback from the community” that we’re sure was entirely helpful and polite. Essentially, siege spells will be unlocked at lower levels, chiefly to “give lower level players the ability to retaliate should they find themselves the target of a raid.”

Dive Bomb in particular drops to level 30, but it’s also seeing a nerf. “We’ve made its AOE range significantly smaller to prevent it from causing massive damage to large chunks of a structure,” says Blue Isle, further noting it’ll be harder to make too.

Wanna see more? There’s a dev stream on Twitch later today at 4 p.m. EDT. Full patch notes are up too!

John Smedley talks about the game industry but is mum about his studio’s project

It has now been seven months since John Smedley shut down Pixelmage Games and took his team over to Amazon Game Studios to set up shop in San Diego. We’ve been greatly curious about what game he’s been heading — and if it is an MMO — but until recently Smed has stayed out of the spotlight to get work done.

This is why we’ve perked up to see him sit down with VentureBeat for an extended interview about his new employer and his take on the direction that the industry is heading. He has a lot of opinions on just about everything, ranging from virtual reality to Twitch integration to the rise of e-sports.

If you’re hoping that the notoriously chatty Smedley was going to reveal what game his studio is making, you’re in for disappointment. He indicates that he’s very excited about the project but is tight-lipped about specifics.

Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds whupped League of Legends on Twitch last week

Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds may have one of the worst video game names in history, but it set a new record on Twitch last week.

Gameloco founder Nicolas Cerrato points out that PUBG beat League of Legends in terms of hours of eyeballs on Twitch during the week of August 6th, the first time LoL’s ever been unseated by a game outside of a special event. And indeed, this was a special event: Dota 2 actually came close to beating both PUB and LoL together thanks to Valve’s massive $10M prize-pool The International tourney, which concluded over the weekend.

But PUBG still managed to edge out LoL — something that’s never happened before, possibly because MOBA eyes were distracted, or possibly because, as Cerrato puts it, “PUBG looks more and more like an extremely powerful cultural phenomenon that will impact gaming like very few games ever have.” There’s a reason Tencent was trying to buy it and its studio up, after all.
