  1. Blizzard has laid off 209 employees across its US-based offices, with the highest number of layoffs hitting IT and marketing departments. A recent Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification (WARN) filing in California breaks down the jobs that have been cut as part of Activision-Blizzard’s eight percent employee reduction announced in February. PC Games Insider obtained a copy of the filing and provide a by-the-numbers breakdown of job cuts by office. According to their reporting, the filing lists 41 IT-related jobs that have been cut across Blizzard’s US locations, with another 29 layoffs hitting marketing departments in Blizzard’s offices in Irvine, California and Austin, Texas. Another 29 employees have been laid off from Blizzard’s Live Experiences team. The cuts have also hitting Blizzard’s human resources departments in Irvine and Austin, which have laid off 18 employees between them, while 15 more workers have been let go from the Global Insights team in Irvine. PC Games Insider details the rest of the job cuts, which include positions in publishing, finance and commercial teams, Battle.net, facilities, and web & mobile departments. The 209 positions listed in the WARN filing are only part of the some 800 jobs that will be eliminated thanks to Activision-Blizzard’s restructuring, which comes after what CEO Bobby Kotick called a “record year” during an earnings call earlier this year. Since then, the company has observed that the mass layoffs “could negatively impact” its business by hurting employee morale and making it more difficult to retain talent. The layoffs have hit Activision-Blizzard’s subsidiaries, including mobile games giant and Candy Crush developer King, which is closing its San Francisco office. Blizzard is also laying off employees in its overseas offices, including major cuts to offices in Ireland, Mexico, and France.

  2. As Captain Marvel inspires Blockbuster nostalgia in movie theaters worldwide, there's only one left in the real world. The Blockbuster in Bend, Oregon, became the only branch on Earth after last Australian store had its final day of rentals on Wednesday, according to the Australian Associated Press. The store in Morley, western Australia, will keep its doors open until the end of March as it sells stock like DVDs, Blu-rays and store signs -- so locals can grab a piece of movie rental history. The Bend store became the sole remaining branch in America last summer, and manager Sandi Harding told CNN she was excited to be the last in the world, but noted that "we all have a kinship with the other Blockbusters" and expressed her condolences for those in Australia. Blockbuster saw its peak back in 2004, when it had 60,000 employees and 9,000 stores worldwide, the International Business Times reported. Its market value was $5 billion and revenues were $5.9 billion then. Things changed in 2010 as it filed for bankruptcy. Three years later, parent company Dish announced plans shut down all remaining company-owned Blockbuster stores in the US by January 2014 due to increased competition from streaming services, but some locations (well, just one now) held out as franchises.

  3. PlayStation 4 owners are reporting that BioWare’s new game, Anthem, has bugs severe enough that the game is forcing their consoles to shut down. In rare cases, some players are claiming that Anthem’s crashes are “bricking” their PS4s, rendering them unusable. This past week, the Anthem subreddit has been rife with reports of severe crashes. “When encountering a crash or game error, sometimes I get booted to the main menu or out of the game completely to the PS4 dashboard,” Reddit user forthemasters wrote. “But twice now when trying to matchmake my PS4 has completely turned off. Don’t worry about the loot patch ffs, sort the bugs out first please.” That post has more than 1,400 upvotes on Reddit. A “public service announcement” from another Anthem player has racked up more than 3,100. “No other game causes my playstation to randomly turn off while playing,” wrote Reddit user TheMadTitanGuantlet. “My [PS4] has been completely bricked to the point of not even turning on because of Anthem. I’m not looking for any sympathy or anything. This post is mainly being made to warn people that this could potentially damage your console to the dreaded point of no return.” In last week’s episode of the Giant Bomb podcast, co-host Brad Shoemaker offered a similar account of Anthem hard-crashing his PS4. Shoemaker said the process powers off the console and results in a system check that takes roughly five minutes to fully restart the hardware. Anthem players have shared similar stories on the game’s official technical support forum. Some affected Anthem players on PS4 have reported successfully getting refunds directly from Sony, while others have said they’ve had no such luck.

  6. Sometime within next few weeks, I will be updating our machine OS and updating all other packages, when I get some time. Tentative down time would be of appx 2-4 hrs depending on how it goes. If something major goes wrong, I will post updates on our Discord channel. Just giving heads up. Update on US Linux machine is completed. New OS will bring updates for Apache, php and MySQL which will speed up our website as well. Once that is done, I will start the work on website to update our pages which would include server status page, About Us, etc etc. In the mean time - we have re-started our US ETPRO Server. Server IP: sw2.clan-fa.com:27970. We will be soon adding one ETTV based server as well and that would make 2 US and 2 Euro ETPRO server respectively. If anyone knows any new games which is popular and where we can run our own servers, feel free to suggest. Thank you
  7. Welcome our new staff member @Spyderwebber for COD4 team. We have slowly started working on our COD4 servers and with everyone's help, we are going to make it popular again like they where back in the old days. If anyone is experience with COD4 modding, drop me a message and we can figure something out for one of our servers. Thank you
  8. I have decided to shutdown teamspeak for time being since we all use Discord. It doesn't make sense to monitor 2 things which serves same purpose. I will always keep files for it in my back ups if Discord decides to go Xfire route. Since last year we all have been using Discord. It has iOS and Android app as well. It's much easier to keep in touch with Discord. https://fearless-assassins.com/topic/88147-official-fa-discord/ Every member, admin, staff, etc should be on discord by now. If not please download and install it and update your Discord ID in your profile. I hope to see you all on Discord. I can guarantee you that once you start using Discord - you will forget Vent, Teamspeak, etc. It's much easier with iOS and Android apps. Cheers.
  9. Welcome to our new staff member - Mr K. His contributions to our Insurgency and DOI servers is massive. I believe he would be great addition to our staff team.
  10. We started our community back in 2008 on this day. It does seems like years have passed by but when sometimes I join the servers, I feel it’s all same when I see familiar faces on the server. We are happy that we started the community back in 2008 because if we didn’t then we wouldn’t be able to know you people. It has been blast gaming with you people throughout all this years. Sometimes I miss my friends who have been playing with us since 2008 or even before. I do miss seeing some old friends who used to play on our servers back in the days. I had never ever though that I will miss people whom I hardly new in real life even after so many years. All I want to say is this gaming community has given me so much that even after so many years, I still remember my friends and miss them. Without all life would have been bit boring, I would say. People say it’s just a game but for some reason I feel it’s just not a game. It’s a place where I made new friends, learn new things and become patient over the period of time. It has become part of my life. On this day, I would like to say thanks to every donor who donated money for paying the bills, time and experience making this community worth loving for. Without donations it would be real hard to manage the bills and I still wish more people would donate rather than just few donating high amounts. Only 2$/month aka 20$ one time donation is not much to ask when you are enjoying 24*7 on our servers since 2008! It’s easier to be leader in the pack but it’s much harder to create the pack and then lead it. I would like to thank you our leaders, co-leaders, staff members, recruiting team and members including trial members to make all this things easier. We all together have successfully created a gaming place where players are enjoying playing on our servers rather than worrying about cheaters or trouble makers. Over the period of time you all together have changed this place from one gaming clan to one family. We are happy that we started Fearless Assassins back in 2008 and we are still part of it. We are hoping that we will be here still playing with you people and with your kids. We will be waiting for the days when we would be replaced by our Jr. members. That being said - Happy B'day Community! You all have a blast today on jay2.clan-fa.com ET server game day! As the saying goes - I DON'T NEED TO "GET A LIFE." I'M A GAMER, I HAVE LOTS OF LIVES!

  14. Cheep News Deadly drones unleashed... Haven't posted a news thread because I couldnt really find anything that interesting or funny. Kari and Dfighter deal with the mores serious news, I try and lighten it up a bit but recently there havent been that many topics worth posting. Heres one anyway... __________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ The owner of an aerial photography business has been sentenced to 30 days in jail after a drone he was operating knocked a woman unconscious. Paul Skinner was found guilty of reckless endangerment, by a judge at the Seattle Municipal Court. It is believed to be the first time a drone pilot has been given a jail sentence. The incident happened during Seattle's 2015 Pride Parade. According to the police, the 18in (45cm) by 18in drone crashed into a building and fell into the crowd, injuring two people. Judge Willie Gregory said he acknowledged that the incident was an accident but added that the pilot had "engaged in conduct that put people in danger of being injured". Close calls Prosecutor Pete Holmes said the faulty operation of drones was a "serious public-safety issue that will only get worse" and more prosecutions could follow. Ravi Vaidyanathan, a drone expert from Imperial College London, said he was "not aware of anything previously resulting in jail time". He said it was inevitable more accidents would follow and called on the regulatory bodies that governed drone use to provide "a consistent set of guidelines on usage". "In the US, there are rules for commercial use but different ones for hobbyists," he said. "In the UK, rules are governed by the size of aircraft, so in my understanding anything under 20kg [3st 2lb] can be flown without regulation. "We are in uncharted territory, but the guidelines have to be consistent." He added the inconvenience to the public was also "non-trivial". "Having a drone buzzing around does not add to most people's beach experience, for example, and we need to think about this too." During the past fiscal year, more than 1,200 possible collisions between an aircraft and a drone were reported to the Federal Aviation Administration. The FAA was unable to confirm any strikes, but it has reported several close calls, including a Lufthansa jet approaching Los Angeles that passed within 200ft (60m) of a drone. _______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Do any of you guys have a drone? I DO, THEY ARE SO FUN! source :http://www.bbc.com/news/39114691
  15. Cheep News There is an abundance of news being published every day covering many different genres and topic. We read and are subjected to all kinds of things and it causes the reader to develop an opinion or become biased to a certain degree towards the thing they have read with the mindset that " its the news, it must be true". The danger is that not all news is genuine, some are created for publicity and its unhealthy to form and base our opinions on these lies which then spread like a disease sometimes causing a lot of collateral damage. I was reading through some articles when I came upon this one and thought it would be beneficial for all of us to learn how recognize fake and real news. _____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ From claims that The Simpsons predicted Trump’s presidency in the Year 2000 to the absurd story that the Queen has joked about assassinating Donald Trump, our social media feeds are awash with lies and misunderstandings. Just consider the 29 January shootings in a Quebec mosque, by Alexandre Bissonnette. In just a few hours, conspiracy theories had begun to percolate, claiming a police cover-up to protect a Muslim accomplice. As David Mikkelson, the co-founder of myth-busting site Snopes, puts it: “The bilge is rising faster than you can pump.” Tellingly, Snope's traffic almost doubled – to 13.6 million monthly visitors – in October last year, as readers struggled to make sense of the events leading up to the election. Fortunately, psychologists are beginning to understand why we accept dubious claims that support our own viewpoint while neglecting facts that disagree with our views. In this round-up of our previous content, we explore six strategies you can adopt to avoid being fooled. Don’t be seduced by simplicity A series of studies have shown that it is surprisingly easy to mask a lie in the veil of credibility, by making it sound so obvious it must be true. Often, this revolves around the “cognitive fluency” – whether the idea is easy to process. Simply printing a story in an easy-to-read font can do the trick. For the same reason, we are also more likely to trust someone if they feel familiar (if they have appeared on TV a lot, for instance) – even if they clearly lack expertise in what they are saying. Try questioning your sources and look beyond the slick presentation. Be smart to doctored images Images can also increase a story’s cognitive fluency, but thanks to software like Photoshop, they can now be easily doctored, and you may not realise just how easily this can manipulate your memory of history. The site Slate once ran an experiment, in which they showed pictures of certain political events – only some of which were real. When questioned afterwards, nearly half their readers claimed to have remembered the fake events actually occurring. It’s just one method of subtle suggestion that could lend credibility to a lie. So try to look for multiple sources of information, and don’t just rely on the evidence immediately in front of your eyes. Accept your ignorance Many people suffer from over-confidence – the belief they know more than the average person. And our smartphones – with infinite knowledge at our finger-tips - can exacerbate this effect. As a result, we may feel less critical of the information that reinforces our assumptions, while dismissing anything that disagrees with us. Look beyond your bubble As Zaria Gorvett explains in her story on ‘group polarisation’, people naturally converge on the views of those around them – in both their physical and virtual neighbourhoods. So try talking to people with different views from your own, and look to news sources you wouldn’t normally read. You might be surprised to find information that questions the facts you took for granted. Be curious Along similar lines, psychologist Tom Stafford suggests that we could all benefit from being more curious. Whereas education alone does little to prevent polarised thinking, people who are more curious appear to appraise scientific evidence in a more balanced way – so that they are not blinded by their existing ideology. Consider the opposite You may also benefit from the following strategy found in a vintage psychology paper. As Stafford describes in his piece, participants were asked to read articles about the death penalty, with the following instructions: “Ask yourself at each step whether you would have made the same high or low evaluations had exactly the same study produced results on the other side of the issue.” So, for example, if presented with data suggesting the death penalty lowered murder rates, the participants were asked to analyse the study's methodology and imagine the results pointed the opposite way. The technique turned out to reduce the participants’ confirmation bias – their tendency to discount evidence that did not agree with their existing beliefs, while leading them to be more critical of the evidence that supported their assumptions. As a result, they came to a more balanced opinion overall. ____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ WARNING : FAKE Source :http://www.bbc.com/future/story/20170210-how-to-avoid-falling-for-lies-and-fake-news
  16. Cheep News Not the usual kind of thing I post but nevertheless i thought it important for people to hear whats going on in the political world. _________________________________________________________________________________________________________ A US judge in Seattle has issued a temporary nationwide block on President Donald Trump's ban on travellers from seven mainly Muslim nations. Federal Judge James Robart ruled against government lawyers' claims that US states did not have the standing to challenge Mr Trump's executive order. Last week's order has led to protests and confusion at US airports. Some 60,000 visas have since been revoked. The Justice Department now plans to file an emergency stay of the ruling. In a statement, the White House described Mr Trump's directive as "lawful and appropriate". "The president's order is intended to protect the homeland and he has the constitutional authority and responsibility to protect the American people," the statement said. Mr Trump's order brought in a suspension of the US Refugee Admissions Programme for 120 days. There is also an indefinite ban on Syrian refugees. Anyone arriving from Iraq, Syria, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan or Yemen faces a 90-day visa suspension. The lawsuit against President Trump's ban was initially filed by Washington state, with Minnesota joining later. Washington State Attorney General Bob Ferguson has described the ban as illegal and unconstitutional, because it discriminates against people on the ground of their religion. The ruling is a major challenge to the Trump administration, and means that nationals from the seven countries are now able - in theory - to apply for US visas, the BBC's David Willis in Washington DC reports. The administration can also appeal against the verdict. President Trump has argued that his directive is aimed at protecting America. He said visas would once again be issued once "the most secure policies" were in place, and denied it was a Muslim ban. A number of state attorney generals have said the order is unconstitutional. Several federal judges have temporarily halted the deportation of visa holders, but the Seattle ruling is the first to be applicable nationwide. Courts in at least four other states - Virginia, New York, Massachusetts and Michigan - are hearing cases challenging Mr Trump's executive order. Earlier on Friday, a judge in Boston declined to extend a temporary ban that prohibited the detention or removal of foreigners legally authorised to come to America. The ban - which only applied to Massachusetts - is due to expire on 5 February. ________________________________________________________________________________________________ WHO IS AFFECTED? ________________________________________________________________________________________________ A US government lawyer told a Virginia court 100,000 visas had been revoked. But the State Department said it was 60,000, once diplomatic and expired visas were taken out of the equation. The directive - which bans people from seven mainly Muslim Middle Eastern and African countries from entering the US - has led to widespread protests. Courts in at least five US states - Virginia, New York, Massachusetts, Michigan and Washington - are hearing cases challenging the White House executive order. The 100,000 figure emerged on Friday in a hearing at Alexandria, Virginia, for two Yemeni brothers deported after their arrival at Dulles International Airport last Saturday. The number was cited by US Justice Department lawyer Erez Reuveni, who added that no Green Card holders had been denied US entry. Simon Sandoval-Moshenberg, one of the plaintiffs' lawyers, said after the hearing: "There is no legal justification to cancel all these visas." The latest reaction to the executive order included: The American Council on Education sent a letter signed by nearly 600 colleges and universities to Homeland Security Secretary John Kelley to express concern over the immigration order Canada's provincial health minister said they have an obligation to act to help children scheduled to receive life-saving surgeries in the US who are now being turned away The White House said on Monday that only 109 people were "slowed down" in their travel out of 325,000 people who had flown into the US since the order was given. State Department spokesman Will Cocks said they were aware individuals who had their visas revoked would be "temporarily inconvenienced". But he said national security was the administration's top priority when approving visas. The State Department said it issued over 11 million immigrant and non-immigrant visas in 2015. Several judges have granted temporary restraining orders barring US authorities from enforcing portions of Mr Trump's ban. _________________________________________________________________________________________________ Thoughts?

  17. A man in his 40s has died and another is in a serious condition after an ammonia gas leak at a Carlsberg factory. Emergency services were called to the brewery in Northampton town centre at 12.30pm on Wednesday following reports of an industrial accident. Twenty two people, including 11 staff, two police officers and nine firefighters, were taken to hospital. We are working closely with the authorities to investigate how this tragic incident occurred Julian Momen, Carlsberg UK A 51-year-old man working on the site remains in a serious but stable condition, Carlsberg confirmed. Julian Momen, chief executive officer, Carlsberg UK, said: "We are deeply, deeply saddened by today's tragic incident and subsequent fatality. "Our immediate thoughts are with the individual's family, friends and colleagues at this very difficult time and we will support them in every way we can. "Our further thoughts and support are with our colleagues and members of the emergency services who are being treated in hospital. "One of our colleagues remains in a serious but stable condition. Nothing is more important to us than the safety of everyone working for us. "We are working closely with the authorities to investigate how this tragic incident occurred and we will be in a position to say more once a full investigation has been concluded." In a statement, the force added: "Other staff from Carlsberg and emergency service personnel remain at the hospital receiving treatment. "The emergency services were called to Carlsberg at around 12.30pm today following reports of a gas leak. "Northamptonshire Police are working with the Health and Safety Executive to investigate the incident." The gas leak was confined to the factory site and there is not thought to be a wider risk to members of the public. Staff were evacuated from the site when the leak happened. A statement from the three emergency servcies said: "Six fire pumps were called to the location to secure the site. "There are no cordons around the property, and roads remain open, although motorists are advised to avoid the area if possible to reduce congestion."
  18. Recently there has been an increase in controversial topics in the news section, which has led to more complaints and more arguing between members, causing me and other staff members to get involved in said topics. Look guys and gals, we have nothing against the news or free speech but you all have to remember this is a gaming community. Everyone comes from around the world, not just from your location. We are made up of people from different races, religions, nationalities and backgrounds. All with different stories or opinions. We need to learn to respect those differences. Dissing or taking pot shots at other people or countries is a bad idea. It just leads to useless arguing on forums and servers, which in turn creates rifts between members that are hard to repair. So please be mindful of what you post. Look at if from the other person's point of view and ask yourself if this is offensive or biased. If this could cause trouble or pain. I'm not saying stop posting, I am just asking everyone (users and members) to be respectful, mindful and kind to other users and their opinions and to state your opinion in a nice, respectful and mindful manner. We get that not everyone will share the same opinion about a topic but that doesn't mean that the opposing view is getting out of hand and needs to be dealt with. We also understand that sometimes people do get carried away and yes they do need to be reminded how to behave. We really do not want to start issuing warning to people who constantly go overboard in the news section but we will if we have too. This isn't just directed at people posting in the topics but those posting the topics. Remember we are a gaming community, most of our news should be focus on gaming technology, upcoming games, gaming events from around the world and fun and lively topics not just on politics, scandals and war. Opinion pieces are okay as long as you show both sides of evidence not just your side. News is about giving people both sides of the story not just one. Use multiple sources, check your facts and make sure the news you are feeding viewers is 100% correct. The best opinion pieces are actually pieces that take the other person's opinions and using facts and logic refute all the other opinions claims, leaving no room for argument. We can mourn for people and their losses but don't try put blame on someone elses culture. Ideally though we should stay away from news that can cause huge debates and strife and focus more on the good news. I am afraid that if topics about news keep getting abuse with negative posts, harsh comments and constant complaints, we will have to start locking before anyone can reply or even limit the content of what is posted more than we are having to do now. In some cases posts might even be fully removed from forums if the contents are found to be too controversial. So lets work together and start behaving in the news section before me or any of the other leaders have to start getting harsher about posting privileges and punishments.

  21. FILE PHOTO © KCNA / Reuters North Korea has fired a submarine-launched ballistic missile, the South Korean military has announced, according to the local Yonhap news agency. The South's Joint Chiefs of Staff says the missile test “was unsuccessful” and failed in its initial stage. The missile was fired from waters southeast of the coastal port city of Sinpo, South Hamgyong Province, at about 11:30 am Seoul time (0230 GMT), Yonhap reported citing South's Joint Chiefs of Staff (JCS). "The SLBM was ejected from the submarine normally, but is estimated the initial flight was unsuccessful," the JCS said in a brief press release. "Our military strongly denounces such provocative acts by North Korea." Japan has “strongly condemned” Pyongyang’s recent launch, calling it a "clear challenge to UN Security Council resolutions." "We should strongly condemn the launch by working with the international community," Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe said on Saturday, according to the Kyodo news agency. In late April North Korea already boasted about a submarine-launched ballistic missile test, calling the launch a "great success" that provided "one more means for powerful nuclear attack". Seoul labeled the launch as unsuccessful, saying that the sea-based missile broke into several pieces mid-flight after having flown some 30 kilometers. The first underwater launch of the North Korean SLBM missile, KN-11, was made on November 27, 2015, and allegedly also resulted in failure. Following the country’s fourth nuclear test, which had been conducted on January 6, and the subsequent launch of a long-range rocket carrying an earth observation satellite on February 7, the North came under fire from the international community. The UN significantly expanded the existing sanctions imposed on North Korea in March by banning all exports that might have benefited its operational capabilities. Earlier this week, the US for the first time imposed sanctions personally targeting Kim Jong-Un. Source: https://www.rt.com/news/350291-north-korea-fires-submarine-missile/
  22. We have added new group on the teamspeak for regular members. We are not going to add all the groups on the teamspeak as we have on the forums. I am going to keep it clean and simple: Members grp – For “regular” clan members who visit teamspeak often. They will have symbol M after the name so other guest/regulars can ask them for help when needed. Staff grp – For the selected admins who will help in managing teamspeak. I would suggest everyone start using Teamspeak. It would make communication much easier and game play would be fun too. Just bind a key for push to talk so that others can hear you only when you press the key. You can use TS for console gaming, RPG games and all other FPS games you play. Thanks!
  23. In order to apply the patches, I will be rebooting our Euro machines tonight i.e. Both Windows and Linux - would be down for 5 mins or so appx. Servers Affected - All Euro Servers Website Affected - Yes. Thank you
  24. Going forward some servers will auto restart every midnight around 3 AM @ respective time zones of the server location. Servers will auto restart from Monday - Thursday. There is no auto restart from Friday to Sunday since more players would be playing on weekends night. It would help to keep logs clean and smaller. Thanks
