Fortnite look out Apex Legends tallies 25 million players a week after

first_img Share your voice Tags “Since we launched Apex Legends last week on Monday we’ve seen the creation of an Apex Legends community that is excited, thriving, and full of great feedback and ideas,” Vince Zampella wrote in a blog post. (Zampella is head of Respawn Entertainment, which made Apex Legends and its predecessor, Titanfall.) “Our goal is to build this game with you, our community, so keep giving us your feedback because we really are listening.”EA’s success with Apex Legends marks a potential for it to take on Fortnite, which counted 200 million players in December. (Epic didn’t immediately respond to a request for updated figures.) Those millions of players have turned Fortnite into a cultural phenomenon, played by celebrities, musicians and sports stars. Player counts aren’t the only signs of Apex Legends’ success. Shortly after the announcement Monday, gamers were playing Apex Legends on the popular streaming game service Twitch at nearly three times the number they were Fortnite, and even more than other popular streaming games like League of Legends. The number of people streaming Apex Legends is nearly three times more than Fortnite on Twitch.tv. Screenshot by Ian Sherr/CNET “The game is off to a phenomenal start,” Wedbush Securities analyst Michael Pachter wrote in a note to investors last week. Though EA’s financial results over the last holiday season were disappointing (in part because of Fortnite’s popularity), Pachter expects Apex Legends to contribute $100 million to EA’s revenues in its next fiscal year. Post a comment Apex Legends continues to grow.The new video game from industry giant Electronic Arts has been grabbing attention online as it takes on one of the world’s most popular games, Epic’s Fortnite: Battle Royale. Like Fortnite, Apex Legends is free to download and is designed as a last-man-standing “battle royale” title. And Apex Legends appears to be growing fast. Last week, the company said the game counted 10 million players in the first 72 hours since the game’s launch. Now it’s at 25 million players.

BNP wants Russian Chinese support to end Rohingya crisis

first_imgBNPThe Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP) on Wednesday called for intensifying diplomatic efforts to convince Russia and China to secure their support to resolve the Rohingya crisis, UNB reports from Cox’s Bazar.The main opposition party emphasised support from the two powers so that they do not exercise their veto power against any move by the United Nations Security Council to take a resolution on the Rohingya crisis.”We must continue our diplomatic endeavours to have a solution to Rohingya issue. Our diplomatic efforts will also have to deepen so that China and Russia don’t use their veto power at the UN Security Council,” BNP secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir told newsmen after distributing relief materials among Rohingyas at Ukhia.The BNP leader said the government should make its best efforts to persuade all the influential countries to stand by the hapless and persecuted citizens of Myanmar.He said their party wants the government to give shelter to those Myanmar citizens entered Bangladesh in the face of mass killing and persecution in their own country for a temporary period on humanitarian ground.At the same time, Fakhrul said, the government also must take all-out measures to repatriate the displaced Rohingyas promptly ensuring their citizenship and dignity.On behalf of their party chairperson Khaleda Zia, the BNP secretary general also called upon all to stand by the repressed Rohingya with their humanitarian assistance.He said their party has long been demanding army engagement to carry out relief activities in Rohingya camps. “Discipline has been restored in distributing relief here as the government finally entrusted the army with the task.”The BNP leader said the government should increase its healthcare services for Rohingyas further and set up temporary houses for them.He said their party has been providing Rohingyas with humanitarian support since they started entering Bangladesh following persecution in Myanmar.The BNP leader said their party leaders are working for giving humanitarian assistance to the Rohingyas alongside its central relief team.Fakhrul, who went to Cox’s Bazar on Tuesday afternoon, handed over two trucks carrying relief materials of their party to army on Ukhia College ground on Wednesday morning.He later distributed the relief materials, including food, clothes, utensils and medicines, among the Rohingyas.last_img read more

Jailed Reuters reporters win Pulitzer Prizes for Rohingya report

first_imgDetained Reuters journalist Kyaw Soe Oo and Wa Lone are escorted by police as they leave after a court hearing in Yangon, Myanmar on 20 August 2018. Reuters File PhotoReuters won two Pulitzer Prizes on Monday, one for revealing the massacre of 10 Muslim Rohingya men by Buddhist villagers and Myanmar security forces, and another for photographs of Central American migrants seeking refuge in the United States.The awards marked the second year in a row that Reuters has won two Pulitzers, the most prestigious prize in American journalism. Reuters has won seven since 2008.Two of this year’s honorees have been jailed for 490 days in Myanmar for their role in uncovering the killings.”While it’s gratifying to be recognized for the work, public attention should be focused more on the people about whom we report than on us: in this case, the Rohingya and the Central American migrants,” Reuters Editor-in-Chief Stephen J. Adler said.In other categories, coverage of mass shootings in the United States and investigations into US President Donald Trump featured prominently. The New York Times and the Washington Post also took two Pulitzers each.Reuters and the Associated Press were both awarded prizes for international reporting, with the AP winning for its coverage of war atrocities in Yemen.The Reuters award was for an investigative report that revealed the massacre of 10 Rohingya at the village of Inn Din, in the heart of the conflict zone of Rakhine state in Myanmar.Two young Reuters reporters, Wa Lone and Kyaw Soe Oo, both Myanmar citizens, found a mass grave filled with bones sticking out of the ground. They went on to gather testimony from perpetrators, witnesses and families of victims.They obtained three devastating photographs from villagers: two showed the 10 Rohingya men bound and kneeling; the third showed the mutilated and bullet-ridden bodies of the same 10 men in the same shallow grave.In December 2017, before Wa Lone and Kyaw Soe Oo could complete their story, they were arrested in what international observers have criticized as an effort by authorities to block the report. The report, “Massacre in Myanmar,” was completed by colleagues Simon Lewis and Antoni Slodkowski and published in February of last year.In September, Wa Lone and Kyaw Soe Oo were sentenced to seven years imprisonment for violating the country’s Official Secrets Act.”I’m thrilled that Wa Lone and Kyaw Soe Oo and their colleagues have been recognized for their extraordinary, courageous coverage, and our photojournalists for their moving pictures that show humanity defying huge obstacles,” Adler said. “I remain deeply distressed, however, that our brave reporters Wa Lone and Kyaw Soe Oo are still behind bars.”Border ImagesIn the breaking news photography category, 11 Reuters photographers contributed pictures to “On the Migrant Trail to America,” a package of images showing asylum-seekers and other migrants from Central America at the US border.One photo by Kim Kyung-Hoon showed migrants fleeing tear gas launched by US authorities into Mexico at the San Diego-Tijuana border. In the image a mother grabs her twin daughters by the arm, one in diapers and wearing rubber sandals, the other barefoot, as a teargas cannister emits its fumes.In another image, an aerial photo, Mike Blake was the first to photograph the detention facility in Tornillo, Texas, where children walked in single file, like prisoners.Goran Tomasevic captured an image in San Pedro Sula, Honduras, a city with one of the highest murder rates in the world, of a rooster scratching in the dirt next to the slain body of a Barrio 18 gang member. Tomasevic was a previous finalist for his pictures of the war in Syria.Mass Shooting Coverage Honoured The New York Times won a prize for explanatory reporting of Trump’s finances and tax avoidance and another for editorial writing by Brent Staples.The Washington Post’s Lorenzo Tugnoli won the feature photography prize for images of the famine in Yemen and the newspaper’s Carlos Lozado also won for criticism.The Wall Street Journal won the national reporting prize for uncovering Trump’s secret payoffs to two women during his campaign who claimed to have had affairs with him.Coverage of mass shootings in the United States was also recognized four times.The South Florida Sun Sentinel won the public service award for “exposing failings by school and law enforcement officials before and after the deadly shooting rampage at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School,” the Pulitzer board said. Seventeen people died in the massacre at the Parkland, Florida, high school on 14 February 2018.The staff of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette won the breaking news prize for its coverage of “immersive, compassionate” coverage of the massacre at Pittsburgh’s Tree of Life synagogue that killed 11 people on 27 October 2018.Pulitzer administrator Dana Canedy, upon announcing the winners, also offered admiration for a non-winner: the staff of the Eagle Eye student newspaper at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School for its coverage of the killings.The Pulitzer board also awarded a special citation to the Capital Gazette of Annapolis, Maryland, for “their courageous response to the largest killing of journalists in US history in their newsroom.” A gunman shot and killed five people there on 28 June 2018.last_img read more
