Dota 2 matchmaking may be less terrible now for solo players and more difficult for toxic people

Good!
I play DOTA solo so being paired against a 5,4 or even a 3 can be a surefire gee-gee ... DOTA has enough players where this doesn't impact 5man teamup's or the 3 or 4 (HoN tried this and it never had enough)

The ranking is purely opinionated and aspects of it have been in the game for some time. At the end of the game you can vote up or down players... problem is people will vote you down because you didn't do what they wanted when they wanted...

No Ashes of the Singularity: Escalation for Linux but Ashes II and future Stardock titles should be

sad (as a massive RTS fan) but understandable. The fact they took it that far is great and it appears their internals meant a decent port to vulkan wasn't worth the effort.

So this ashes2... any news?

Planetary Annihilation: TITANS still seeing updates, Mesa issues on Linux being looked into

Naval have some of the strongest units (outside titans)
It's something special being able to lay siege to a opponent who then can't get close to you.

It's risky commiting to naval tech though as on a map with mostly land it's pointless, especially with orbital support. Very handy if you have excess Econ or at a stalemate

Still, nothing like lobbing a planet at someone

Counter-Strike: Global Offensive updated again - watch live events, Danger Zone updates and more

woopwoop.

I agree with the startup time but this is actually comparable to HL2 (I recently replayed that). This isn't too surprising since CS:S was based upon the source engine and while CS:GO has improvements it is still on Source.
I believe this is source1 + OGL related and if they move CS:GO over to Source2+Vulkan we would see a massive improvement. THis is apparent with DOTA2, which is Source2+vulkan and starts up in no time & enters a game in no time. Likewise I recently had to run dota2 in ogl mode due to a buggy update and that experienced some slowdown as well.

There was talk about csgo migrating to source2 for last summer but there has been silence since then
