How 2018 Hearthstone Esports Will Be Its Biggest Year Yet

Hearthstone Esports in 2017 saw non-stop improvement as the team at Blizzard continued to iron out hiccups and lasered in on the competitive integrity of the wildly successful digital card game. In 2018 it’s going to be even better.

I sat down with Che Chou — the Franchise Lead for Hearthstone Esports, who was in town for the Sydney Innvitational — and he gave me an exclusive run-through of how competitive Hearthstone will work in 2018.

The Predator Is Coming to Ghost Recon Wildlands

Proving 2017 has at least one more surprise left in it, Ubisoft has just revealed a new special event for Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Wildlands, teasing a legendary cameo in the process: The Predator.

The Predator doesn’t feature overtly in the trailer but Ubisoft isn’t exactly being subtle about it. The skinned bodies, the iconic Predator growl, the font – it can only mean one thing: Ubisoft has cooked up a story and it’s about to drop us into the meatgrinder.

The upcoming event is called “The Hunt”, and Ubisoft will be unveiling a first glimpse of it at twitch.tv/ubisoft at noon EST on December 13 (9am PST, 5pm GMT, 4am AEST December 14). The Hunt will arrive in-game on December 14.

Overwatch Update Adds In-Game Notification for Bans

The battle against toxicity in Overwatch continues to rage on, but players can expect to see some improvements to the player report system with today’s Winter Wonderland Event patch. According to Overwatch’s latest patch notes , players that have reported someone for toxic behavior will receive an in-game notification when the report results in a ban.

Players will also be notified in-game if they have been reported, and a warning may also be sent if the illicit behavior continues. If the issue is serious enough, however, there may be no warning at all before a silence, suspension, or permanent ban takes place.

Beat The Stress Of Everyday Living With Gardening

Now’s the best time. If you’d like more information on gardening, this article can serve as a starting point for you. Below you’ll find some handy tips to jumpstart your gardening aspirations.

When selecting among several varieties of a plant, choose the ones that will produce the largest yield. A plant that is resistant to disease, or one that is tolerant of extreme weather, will deliver a higher yield.

TIP! Shoveling clay soil is tiresome since clay is hard, and it can also stick to your shovel for twice the difficulty. Take the hard work out of using a shovel in clay soil by rubbing a light coat of car or floor wax over the surface with a clean cloth and buff the surface.

Vegetables should be placed in a spot in your garden that will get about six hours of sun every day. Most members of the vegetable family need this minimum of light for proper growth. Many flowers also require adequate sunlight to flourish.

Coffee Grounds

Coffee grounds can be used to amend soils that are high in alkaline. Coffee grounds add acidity to the soil and are very cheap. This simple act can lead to vegetables that taste better and look more appealing.

TIP! Learn about plant varieties so you can choose the ones with the best yields. Many times, a cold-tolerant or disease-resistant hybrid can have a higher yield versus traditional ones.

The best gardens start with seeds, as opposed to plants. Starting with your own seeds is more environmentally friendly than buying plants from a nursery. Plastics from nurseries aren’t recycled often, which causes them to go into landfills; so try starting with seeds, or buying from organic nurseries.

Fertilizer in the garden is a must. If you decide to use manure, which is great for your plants, choose a pathogen free commercial product. Although there are plenty of fertilizer choices, don’t be concerned with which one you use; just be sure to use one.

You should purchase a wheelbarrow, as well as a kneeling stool to help you garden. Spending a lot of time near the ground working is very hard on the knees, so a lightweight and portable garden stool will make horticulture more comfortable. Also, gardening can involve a lot of heavy lifting and moving items, therefore a robust wheelbarrow can make that aspect much easier.

Pest Control

If you have a vegetable garden, one of your main enemies is garden pests. The vegetables are intended to be eaten, thus you should refrain from using harsh pesticides and chemicals. Persistence and care is a much better solution for pest control, but many avoid it because it actually requires some work on their behalf. Natural pest control depends on the type of soil in your garden and the variety of plants growing there.

With the tips from this article, you are now readier than ever to begin horticulture and hone your skills. Even if you thought you were all ready to go before, look at what you know now! The tips above were meant to give you a little guidance to aid in your gardening endeavors so you can go out and have some real fun!
