Flappy Bird No more!

Flappy Bird is no longer available for downloads

Flappy Bird is no longer available for downloads

The popular game for mobile devices was removed from online stores on Sunday by its Vietnamese creator, who said its fame “ruins my simple life”.

Dong Nguyen, who created the game in just two to three days, was making as much as $50,000 (£30,482) a day from the game’s advertising revenue.

In several Twitter posts, he said the game’s removal was not due to legal issues and that he may make a sequel.

Mr Dong, who describes himself as a “passionate indie game maker”, also said on the micro-blogging site that he will not sell Flappy Bird but that he will still make games.

Game over

Flappy Bird has been downloaded more than 50 million times, making it this year’s most popular mobile game so far.

Launched in May 2013, the game was free to download and required players to tap the screen to keep the bird in flight.

Despite its simple graphics, Flappy Bird was a notoriously difficult game since many users could only keep the bird in the air for a few seconds before it hits an obstacle and falls.

The game went viral after being promoted almost entirely by social media users and was reviewed on a YouTube channel by more than 22 million subscribers.

The official version was only available for Apple and Android devices. It quickly became the number one free game in the Apple App Store and Google Play Store charts.

Several news sites had noted the similarity between the game and an earlier title called Piou Piou, by a different French developer, as well as the fact that Flappy Bird’s main character and obstacles resembled theCheep-Cheep birds and green pipes found in Nintendo’s Super Mario Bros series.

Forbes had even suggested that Mr Dong could be sued for intellectual property infringement as a result. However, the developer has stated that his decision to pull the title was “not anything related to legal issues”.

User reactions

After Mr Dong took the game down, many fans turned to social media to petition for its return.

On Twitter, there were widely-used hashtags of #RIPFlappyBird and #SaveFlappyBird, with several “Save Flappy Bird” accounts being spawned as well.

The game is no longer available through online stores, but it still works on phones that had previously downloaded it.

As a result, some online users have offered to sell their smartphones still containing the Flappy Birds app for large sums of money.

However, some fans expressed their relief that the game was gone.

One user describes Flappy Birds as “an addictive game that everyone hates to love” while another said, “I think it’s for the best, and for the best of all the cracked phones out there.”

At least one user has tweeted a photo of a cracked iPhone screen – apparently as a result of frantic tapping whilst playing the game.

Six Ways to Become a Better League of Legends Player

by Nicholas Greene, MMO Attack, Posted Feb 8th 2013 2:32PM

As a League of Legends player, I consider myself average, at best. Sure, I enjoy the game, and I can pull off some pretty sweet plays here and there – but I’m not anywhere near ready to try my hand in a ranked queue, nor would I last terribly long in the competitive circuit. Believe it or not, I’ve improved – I used to be pretty terrible. There were a great many factors I simply didn’t think about – elements of the game that more or less escaped me altogether.

My roommate is an entirely different story – and I’ve not a doubt in my mind that living with him and playing league on a regular basis with him has upped my game. I’ve started thinking of all the things I’ve done wrong in the past. I’ve started considering where I’m going wrong, and how I can fix that. I’ve started thinking about how to improve. I hardly consider myself an expert on the subject, but here are a few of the things I’ve discovered go a very long way towards being a better player.

Stop Talking Trash:

An old adage applies here: If you don’t have anything nice to say, then don’t say anything at all.

I don’t care how terrible your support is. I don’t care how thoroughly top-lane lost, or how much the guy who went mid fed his opponent. Furthermore, there’s a good chance it isn’t the jungler’s fault you died – it’s probably yours.MMO Attack

Demeaning your teammates is, hands down, one of the worst things you can do in a game of league. As a matter of fact it makes you more likely to lose. Think about it – if somebody’s having a terrible game, and someone acts like a complete jackass to them, it turns into a vicious cycle. They stop caring as much about the game. They get angry, or hurt, or simply shut down. In the worst case, they actively try to get even further under your skin, sealing your defeat. Sure, it’s frustrating – but how is screaming at them like a baboon going to get you anywhere?

One more thing – if you’re trashing your teammates, you aren’t playing. You’re distracted. Chances are pretty good the other team is suffering from no such handicap.

Find “Your” Champion

Riot’s presented their players with a huge roster of champions to choose from – over one hundred different characters, each with their own unique mechanics and play-style. That’s a staggering number, and chances are pretty good that there’s at least one champion in amongst the horde that’ll simply ‘click’ with you. You’ll know them when you find them. For my roommate, it was Tristana. For myself, it was Singed. Be willing to try every champion at least once. Who knows? You might end up finding a perfect fit.

Once you’ve found the champion with which you’ve the most synergy, it’s time to start practicing – but more on that in a moment.

Accept Advice; Think Critically

This seems to be one of the biggest stumbling points for many players – admitting that maybe they aren’t as good at League as they think, and that they could probably learn a few things from their opponents. I know I had trouble with it, at first.

Essentially: always be willing to learn. No one knows everything about the game, and no one is perfect at it. Particularly at lower levels, be willing to consider that a strategy or build you find completely idiotic and absurd might actually be viable. More than anything, you should always be looking for a way to improve your own game. Figure out who the major players are in the competitive scene, and find one who plays your champion. Once you’ve done so, watch them – most of them will have livestreams of their games. Look at what they do, how they build, and how they play. Watch replays of your own games, too. Look at where you went wrong, and consider the areas in which you can improve. Finally, if someone gives advice to you, consider it –even if you think it’s bad.

Look at Builds (But Make Your Own):

There are plenty of champion builds around on websites like Mobafire and Leaguecraft. You should be looking at them, but you shouldn’t be following them like they’re gospel. The thing about League of Legends is that it’s an active game. Yes, you should have a few core items on each champion that you’ll want to rush right away, but at the same time, you need to adapt your build to a wide array of things – how well you’re doing, how well your team is doing, the strongest champion on the opposing team, the composition of the opposing team…we’re looping back around to critical thinking.

In short, don’t just mindlessly mime builds – adapt them to suit your particular situation.

Back to Basics:

Knowing the mechanics and techniques associated with each individual champion is great, sure – but all that knowledge is useless if you haven’t mastered the basic technical skills of League. Last hitting minions, knowing when to purchase wards and where they need to go, and thinking of the big picture whenever you make a play are some of the most vital, basic skills in the game – yet so many people fail to take them into account. I’ve seen plenty of players who are absolutely brilliant at understanding their champion, yet they’ve the map awareness of a tree slug – which means that they’re never where they need to be, and often where they shouldn’t.

This guide should get you on the right track. Read it, and remember: practice makes perfect. Teach yourself how to last hit, and actively consider the rest of your team. Your lane isn’t the only one in the game (unless you’re playing an ARAM).

It’s Still Just a Game

Yeah, you want to get better at League. You want to be a top-notch player, you want to be that guy who carries your team to victory every game, the support your team can’t go without, that gold-plated, 2000 ELO professional. At the end of the day, though; you need to remember that League of Legends is still just a game. It’s something you do for fun. Remember that –and try to keep a cool head as a result.
