Flight combat MMO gets new aircraft line, bigger map and revamped warplane roster in Update 1.6

Wargaming today announced the launch of content update 1.6 for its massively multiplayer aviation combat game World of Warplanes. The update adds a new line of Tier 5 and higher Russian MiG fighters as well as revamps the currently existing plane roster by adding a new multirole class of warplanes for ultimate player freedom and customization.

Known for their breakneck speed and power, the Russian MiG line of jets helped define an entire era of aircraft combat. Starting at Tier 5, the new line of aircraft includes the MiG-3, MiG-9 and the legendary MiG-15bis, one of the world’s first swept wing jet fighters to be ever produced and find success in the skies of battle.

Update 1.6 will also see major changes in the creation of a brand new class of warbird—the multirole fighter. Made specifically for players looking for fighters with a balance between both air and ground combat, the new multirole class will allow them to outfit planes with armaments balanced between high caliber guns and ground destroying bombs and rockets. Previous aircraft in the fighter class, as a result, have now been designated as pure aerial combat dogfighters, which will also benefit from new balance changes for both cannons and machine guns.

Lastly, the El Halluf map will see its boundaries extended, providing a more ample landscape for battle. For more information on World of Warplanes Update 1.6 and to register for a free account, visit:

battlefleet2-logoCapital j Media has released the v1.10  update for Battle Fleet 2. This new update to the game includes a few new major features:

  • Submarines and anti-sub warfare
  • Destructible terrain
  • Improved campaign AI
  • French, German & Polish translations

Battle Fleet 2 is a true naval combat sim set in the WWII era, with fights primarily taking place around island chains in The Pacific. Players manually control each ship’s loadout, as well as maneuvering each ship in true turn based combat. Firing on enemy ships is done via power and angle controls, much like Worms or Scorched Earth. Ballistic weapons use real time collision physics, allowing you to use terrain of islands as cover or even allowing individual shells to take out key systems such as enemy guns, flight decks, rudders, and so on. Find out all the information on the Battle Fleet 2 website.

The SilverStone Fortress FT05 is a different take on it successful Raven RV05. SilverStone has gotten rid of the 5.25″ drive bays and once again rotated the motherboard 90 degrees so that the IO panel points toward the sky. These two things done in tandem allow SilverStone to produce a much better engineered ATX case.

Over the last few years we have had the distinct pleasure of reviewing several of EVGA’s Classified series of products – from graphics cards to motherboards – and they have always left a positive impression upon us. With this mind, we are pleased to bring you our review of the new EVGA X99 Classified, which is the company’s flagship model for the brand new X99 LGA2011-3 platform. EVGA’s X99 Classified is supposed to be the pinnacle of motherboard design, bringing with it tons of features and high end performance. But with so many competitors, can the new Classified differentiate itself?

One name that comes to mind when you are talking about superior air cooling performance is Be Quiet!. As you may already know, Be Quiet! has now become one of the industry leaders with their Dark Rock series of high performance air coolers. Well Be Quiet! is at it again, entering the ring with a new middleweight contender called the Dark Rock 3. It is a single stack profile in a push configuration which is geared for those higher end rigs and gaming cases that offer very little space around the CPU area.
