STEAM KICKS ITS OWN ASS WITH A SIMULTANEOUS ONLINE LOGGED-USER RECORD OF 19 MILLION
Steam, a world-class, bad-ass PC gaming platform, broke its own record for simultaneous users logged in at the same time on Saturday. Chicka-chick-Aaahhhh!
There were 19 MILLION players plugged in simultaneously online; Steam’s statistics tracker went nuts after tallying a jaw-dropping 19,728,027, thus kicking its own ass from last month. BTW, last month’s tally for Steam was a mind-blowing 18 million players. Players went for CS:GO and Dota 2, plus a few others, but shunned and fcked other games.
This jump in online Steam users is connected to… yeah, you guessed it. Coronavirus (this virus is REALLY asking for a star in the Walk of Fame of deadly diseases). Fear and more fear keep people stuffed in their caves, and playing their asses off, since all events have been either shut down or played without public.
Not Even Close
Compared to Steam, some of the other games really messed up: Valve’s popular first-person shooter peaked at a miserable one million today, while its also popular MOBA barely made it to 700,000. PUBG also thought they had really made it big grabbing a lame-ass 525,000 people at once, but that didn’t even begin to floor it compared to Steam.
Yeah, yeah, the Coronavirus made people stay at home and play during their downtime, since there’s no live events or live anything. But to have one’s ass beaten by a whopping 18 million! That’s just another level of crazy, man. You can blame the virus, yeah, but Steam bashed their asses. Bigtime.
CALL OF DUTY LEAGUE MOVES MATCHES TO A WEEKLY FORMAT
This fcktard coronavirus’ bullsh*t has been turning esports leagues and events into raging hell, and this has also taken a shat(as in William Shatner, of course) on the Call of Duty League. On Friday, they called it quits on the live 2020 season matches and threw them all to the online mode. They shut up about the who and the how, so we’ll just have to either wait it out or wing it.
The schedule was the only thing they wanted to share, since the homestands are down, and no one in their right mind will waste time playing matches only on weekends. This means they are going to spread the matches out weekly instead of every other weekend. Yeah, well, it’s not like they haven’t done it before. Games like Call of Duty: Black Ops III and WWII held Pro League matches from the players’ cribs, so, a familiar format is making a comeback, only the casters will be casting the matches from the CDL World League studios.
