Riot Games has issued a few fines ranging from $ 1000 to $ 2000 to four League of Legends pro players. The players would show ‘negative behavior’ and use language that is unacceptable. Another 12 players of the game have received official warnings for the same undesirable behavior. These include three players from VIT, two from G2 and two from AFR.

Assassin’s Creed players believe they have found the Greek god of fire
There are rumors on Reddit (thanks TheMadTemplar) about a possible Greek fire god in the mountains. It is about a mysterious blacksmith who hides in the mountains, without it being completely clear what he is looking for there. Is it Hephaestus, TheMadTemplar wonders along with many other gamers. You can find this person to the north of the map in a cave where you only come when you manage to maneuver yourself through a narrow area. Very exciting when there is just any god in human form in the mountains, especially since gamers now think that there are 11 Greek gods hidden in the game. So if you see a character that is behaving strangely, you could just have bumped into a Greek god. Or a fat bug of course.
