Body: This is probably not the first time, nor the last time this type of post would be created, but I feel that this has to be addressed. Riot has neglected Garena for way too long, and with the rumors of the contract between Riot and Garena coming to an end, I feel that this is a good time to address it. This post is a consolidation of various sources and other posts, along with some personal opinions as a player on the SG/MY server of Garena. For those unaware, Garena is a server provider that Riot licensed League of Legends to for it to host in the South-East Asian regions, in countries such as Indonesia, the Philippines, Singapore, and Malaysia.
Hiding Content: Garena has always had hidden content. We never got to see last year's end of year statistics; we never have patch notes linked in the client; we never have a lot of the features that Riot's Client have. We have the basics, but not the luxuries. Also, they have also made it impossible for users to reroll Skin Shards into Prestige/Mystic skins. On the one occasion where their system was bugged, a user got it but Garena quickly took it away from him and gave him Skin Shards. Reddit Post Regarding Issue Imgur of Garena "Support" Replying Gambling: Garena advocates gambling among it's users. 24/7, we have this thing called 'Lucky Crates', which are borderline scams. They usually contain 1-2 rare items, or a set of rare items, for a low RP cost but also have the chance to contain useless items such as 10 Orange Essence and 10 Blue Essence. Recently, they have also launched a "Poro Pillionare", where you can spin a lucky wheel in order to win skins, 'shards', and BE/OE. The 'shards' can be used to buy skins, even exclusive ones such as PAX TWISTED FATE: The Wheel Of Luck Their Shop Blatant Money Grabs: Garena has released K/DA Prestige Evelynn to their store as part of a gambling game. If you can guess 1 out of 9, you win the skin, and you can pay a small amount of RP to remove a guess, meaning for 1840 RP you get: K/DA Prestige Evelynn 6 Masterwork Chests + Key 5 Hextech Chests + Key 3 Emotes 5 K/DA Orbs K/DA Bag The fact that just the 11 chests alone are worth 1840 means that the value of this is dropped drastically. Screenshot of the cash-grab in the Garena Client - Credit to u/smexxyhexxy e-Sports Betting: Citing this recent Reddit post, Garena has been using the e-Sports scene of LoL in order to make money for themselves. This has been occurring since many seasons ago, but this is the first time there is conclusive evidence of this - unhealthy for the e-Sports scene in general. Here are links to the video in question: YouTube (Starts at around 10 minutes) Streamable Backup Image 1 | Image 2 Cryptomining: Citing this article on Bitcoin List, Garena has been using their launcher (for those unaware, Garena has their own platform in which you must use to launch LoL on) to install a cryptominer onto the systems of those playing LoL, and as a result the GPU and CPU rate of the computers have gone down drastically, while players attribute the issue to unoptimisation. Thankfully, it seems to have gone, although from personal experience I still feel there is something draining my GPU at all times when the launcher uses about 30% of it. EVEN THE ACTUAL GAME ONLY TAKES UP 40% Random Server Merges: Recently, the Indonesian server of Garena merged with the Singapore/Malaysian server. Aside from the fact that it mixes up people that speak very different languages in the same server, according to this post made by Garena themselves (it is in Indonesian so I'll translate), the Indonesian users will lose their: - Match-Making Rating and Rank - Username and Clubs - Friends list and Honor level - All champion Mastery Points - All current Hextech crafting shards This is an obvious change; imagine yourself as an NA player, suddenly stripped of your username and rank, along with that M7 Yasuo you spent so long to earn, only to be forced to transfer to a server which does not speak English, and has worse ping. Yeah, that would really suck. Marketing: Quoting from this post:
In Vietnam you can have a nice meal with 2$ (i am not even kidding) and our average salary income in Vietnam is about 250$-350$ or even lower. So the skin prices before the "big change" was very cheap and accessible for everyone with an average income. Notice that we have different RP ratio in Vietnam server: - 149 RP for a 750 RP skin (cost 1.75$) - 199 RP for a 975 RP skin (cost 2.5$) - 299 RP for a 1350 RP skin (cost 3.75$) - 399 RP for a 1820 RP skin (cost 5$) - 799 RP for an Ultimate skin (cost 10$)
The average income for an American household is 4.5k a month according to CNBC, so by that calculation, it would cost roughly: 27 USD for a 750 RP skin 38 USD for a 975 RP skin 56 USD for a 1350 RP skin 75 USD for a 1820 RP skin 150 USD for an Ultimate skin If that sounds ridiculous to you, then yes, it is.
Crypto Currency & The world of Decentralized Casino DApps
Crypto Currency & The world of Decentralized Casino DApps Crypto currency is a fairly new thing, it all started about 10 years ago with birth of BItcoin in 2009. Inherently this technology has matured steadily since then and is about to disrupt the conventional financial market by storm. The whole crypto currency market valuation stands about 250 Billion today, having reached an all time high of 829 Billion in January 2017. A crypto currency is a tradable digital asset or digital form of money, built on blockchain technology that only exists online. ... At its simplest a crypto currency works by logging transactions into a database to work out how much of that currency each individual, or their address is holding. A DApp is an application where the code runs on a decentralized p2p network. Often, the term DApp refers to Smart Contracts, since these contracts run on the blockchain network, which is decentralized. The user interface or the front-end can be run on any server, while making calls to the back-end. Dapp & Decentralized Blockchain Casinos: When talking about a Casino DApp, this means that the front-end can be developed like any other app. However, the backend, or the internal workings of a casino are ran on a decentralized network. Payouts, the random number generator, the algorithms, etc – all of these are coded within the smart contracts which run on the network. This technology is still in its infancy and it takes time to develop complex casino applications. Right now, most of the offerings are somewhat limited at the moment with most of the available casino DApps offering bare-bones, simple and fun games such as dice, moon/crash, wheel where you can wager selected crypto currency depending on which platform they are attached to: such as Ethereum, Tron, EOS, Waves, Bitcoin etc. Not all gloom and doom, soon all this are about to change as big leaps are being made by developers, there are some great operators that offer great casino DApp at the moment while always improving, one good example is https://play.goc.network/ which runs under Tron blockchain. This casino DApp has been 6 months in the making, and currently offers 10 truly beautifully built games: Dice, Big Wheel, Party Dice, Black Jack, Bacarrat, Roullete, Slot, Plinko, FOMO3D & Texas Hold'em.....yes, you hear me right, Texas Hold'em Poker!! PlayGoc is the 1st Tron based casino Dapp that rolled this out, while still having more games in the pipeline: Moon, Cryptoracer, Esport Betting etc. The games UI are exceptional & professional looking, not so cartoonish like most of the other casino Dapps out there. Currently, the tokens accepted for gamings are Tron based: TRX, PLAY (platform own native token), IGG, SEED, LoveHearts & BitTorrent (BTT). Soon there will be crosschain integration - EOS, ETH, Bitcoin etc. As with most casino Dapps, users will be rewarded with mining token when they play. Over here at PLAYGoc, the mining token is called RWD. It can be traded at the exchange, hold & receive weekly TRX dividends fr the market or one time BURN at the daily RDW Party for a share of that day's house profit. On top of that, this platform also has a built in exchange: "PLAY MARKET" https://play.goc.network/market where people can seamlessly buy/sell Tron based tokens without even having to leave the site. Ever since I discovered this DApp, there's only one word.. WOW!!! I could play for hours & hours long...having so much fun & mining some precious RWD tokens :) I really believe this is one of the best Dapp & wish them doing well That's it for now. In my next post, I'll get into details why in my mind PLAYGoc ranked as my favorite casino Dapp, my favorite games & my strategies. P:s Don't just take my word, go and give the site at try. Be your own judge :) https://play.goc.network/ It is strongly recommended that players choose a responsible limit and play within it. TheMiner

Online casino and sportsbook Pnxbet has announced instant cryptocurrency deposits and withdrawals, and dramatic esports betting growth. Curacao-licensed Pnxbet accepts major cryptocurrencies including Bitcoin (BTC), Litecoin (LTC), Monero (XMR), and Ether (ETH), and says instant deposits and withdrawals will be a “game-changer for online players.” For Bitcoin sports betting, the costs are ridiculously low, and in some cases non-existent. Bitcoin’s design is such that it is decentralized, and one typically does not have to pay for any third-party oversight. Instead, the payment is for a one-time miner’s fee. To understand the miners fee, one will have to understand how blockchain works. Which Betting Sites Accept Bitcoin Esports Betting?
