The anti-review bombing rating system used by Epic Games Store seems to be modeled after one of those customer satisfaction surveys

Untitled design 4

In the end, Epic will be adding user reviews to the Epic Games Store, but those reviews might not be what you expect them to be.

Ever since the launch of the Epic Games Store, Epic Games has maintained a particular attitude toward user reviews and game-specific forums. This has been the case since the beginning.

It didn’t make a whole lot of sense for Epic to choose not to implement those features in its store given that they are some of the most frequently used and frequently helpful features on Steam.

The company has consistently stated that the EGS will not include forums because they are known to attract toxic users and are generally unappreciated by software engineers.

User reviews, which have the potential to be manipulated through review bombing, won’t be included either.

This week, many years after the Epic Games Store was first introduced to the public, two new features were released with the intention of simulating a version of user ratings and tags.

The Game Ratings function in a manner similar to that of reviews, with the exception that users are unable to provide any written commentary; instead, there is only a star rating on a scale from one to five.

Those who have spent more than two hours playing a game are eligible to leave a rating. However, there is one additional catch: only randomly selected players will be asked to leave a rating.

After you have finished playing a game, you may be asked to complete one of these surveys. The overall rating will be displayed on the game’s store page once more players have given their own rating for the game.

Epic has stated that it will not “spam our players,” and as a result, you should not anticipate being asked to rate every game that you play.

According to Epic, “This approach protects games from review bombing and ensures that people assigning scores have actually played the games.”

Game Polls, on the other hand, can be thought of as the tag equivalent on the Epic Games Store. Along with providing ratings, players will also be asked to respond to polls regarding the games they have played.

The answers to the multiple-choice questions will be used to populate game tags and will cover topics such as the game’s level of difficulty, the number of players it requires, and so on.

In the same way that ratings will be reflected on game store pages once enough people have answered them, polls will also be shown.

Players will be able to sort using the tags, which will also be used to create their own categories specifically for their use.

Trading has ceased in Escape from Tarkov because merchants will no longer accept cash.

Untitled design 8

Even though the flea market is still operational, pre-wipe events are still going on in Escape from Tarkov. Traders will only take items in exchange for others at this point.

This morning, Battlestate Games tweeted a video that showed a soldier griping about how traders no longer require paper because they only deal in bartered items.

The video served as an announcement that the event was about to begin.

To make a long story short, traders will continue to be open, but they will not accept any form of monetary exchange, including rubles, euros, or dollars. Instead, they will only conduct business with barter items.

If you have a lot of junk in your Lucky Scave boxes, now is the time to clean them out and trade them in for some new gear.

These pre-wipe events have switched places compared to the events that occurred before previous wipes; as is customary, the flea market will close before traders.

It is unknown whether the flea market will also close in the near future. However, players have reported that it is still open and accepting customers at the moment.

It’s possible that this will bring the economy of the game to its knees, and the players aren’t entirely sure what the Battlestate Games are trying to accomplish here.

Because the Tarkov development log does not show any changes since yesterday, the previous boss event on customs is still ongoing, along with the Trader event.

This is the case despite the fact that the bosses have been completely removed from their original locations.

It Appears That Lady Dimitrescu and Princess Peach Will Have Guns, According to a Recent Fortnite Survey.

Untitled design 6

Fortnite, which is currently the most popular battle royale game available, might be getting some of the players’ favorite characters in the near future.

This is excellent news for gamers who are fans of a wide variety of video games.

If you’re a fan of Nintendo or Elden Ring games, you might be interested in the fact that characters from those games will be making their way over to Fortnite, and what’s more, those characters will be armed.

Fortnite is well-known for its many collaborations with a variety of titles as well as popular culture topics such as real-life entertainers and even Youtubers.

As a result of these collaborations, skins and items are frequently added to the game in an effort to appeal to its large player base.

Epic Games has been very consistent with the updates, and this one is no different as it promises characters from some of the most popular games that have been released this year.

Princess Peach and Lady Dimitrescu could make an appearance in Fortnite.

On the basis of the results of a recent survey that some of the game’s players have already received, rumors have already begun to circulate regarding the upcoming skins that will be added to the game.

Since the survey is only accessible to a limited number of people, it is possible that you have not come across it while playing Fortnite so far.

As is customary, the survey covers a wide range of topics; however, the names that stood out to players were those of characters from various games, such as Lady Dimitrescu from Resident Evil Village, Melina from Elden Ring, and Princess Peach from Nintendo. Other names that stood out to players include:

Characters from Elden Ring, Nintendo, and Resident Evil Village Will Soon Be Available in Fortnite

It would appear that the objective of the survey was to gauge the level of interest shown by players regarding the types of collaborations they would like to see incorporated into the game.

Epic Games will, from time to time, poll their players via surveys, and if the results of those polls are favorable, the developer will typically move forward with their intention to include the characters in the game.

Manga and Naruto had been mentioned in a previous survey, and of course, it wasn’t more than a few months later when they were implemented into the game.

Due to the fact that copyrights must also be taken into account, it is currently unknown whether or not these characters will be added to the game.

Microtransactions are a type of in-game purchase that can be made using the game’s in-game currency to purchase premium, player-customizable skins. Fornite is a free-to-play game.

How to Achieve a Shiny Spinarak Outcome in Pokemon Go

Untitled design 3

Those who are already familiar with the Pokemon franchise will find the core gameplay of Pokemon Go to be very familiar: catching Pokemon.

These Pokemon can range from the easiest, like the numerous starters found in the mainline games, to the most difficult, like much rarer but more powerful Pokemon.

They can also be as simple as the numerous starters found in the mainline games. Spinarak is a spider-like Pokemon that many people have come to appreciate for its moveset and overall creative look, not to mention the fact that it evolves into Ariados.

It is one of those Pokemon that can be considered to be somewhere in the middle of the pack. However, this raises the question of how one can obtain a shiny Spinarak in Pokemon Go so that it has the appearance of being significantly more rare.

The reason we are here is to provide an answer to that question.

The Shiny Spinarak Guide for Pokemon Go and How to Obtain One

The method required to obtain a shiny Spinarak is the same as that required to obtain almost every other shiny Pokemon that is currently available, and that method is catching.

When you come across a Spinarak, there is a very remote possibility that, rather than having its usual appearance, it will have a shiny appearance.

If the exterior of this Spinarak is blue, rather than the green that characterizes every other Spinarak, you will know that you have located it.

In either case, once a Spinarak you come across has a blue coloration, all you have to do is capture it, and it will be yours to evolve into Ariados and use in battle however you like!

Having said that, the chances aren’t very good, and unlike other games, there isn’t a straightforward method for resetting everything to its original state.

You are in luck if you happen to be reading this article fairly early on June 21, 2022, as this is when the giveaway will take place! Spinarak is participating in the Spotlight Hour event in Pokemon Go, which means that if you attempt to capture it between 6 PM and 7 PM in your local time today, you will have a much higher chance of snagging one for yourself.

If you try to capture Spinarak between those hours, however, you will have a much lower chance of succeeding. Have fun trying to get your hands on a shiny Spinarak while keeping this in mind!
