Guard Justin Pugh and center Weston Richburg were the highest-rated offensive linemen at 86, while Shane Vereen was the highest-rated running back at 82.
Quarterback Eli Manning received a rating of only 80, but had an awareness rating of 87 and a throwing power rating of 90.
Other notable ratings including running back Paul Perkins , left tackle Ereck Flowers, kicker Aldrick Rosas , right tackle Bobby Hart , safety Darian Thompson and linebacker B.J. Goodson .

Kat went hands-on with Madden 18 and came away with three main thoughts: Passing feels totally different, running is hard, and those new passing mechanics take while to get used to.
FIFA 17 made the switch to EA’s internal game engine, Frostbite, made by DICE and made famous for its use in the Battlefield games. Madden NFL 18 makes the move over to Frostbite this year. It’s fair to say that FIFA 17 wasn’t a drastic change from FIFA 16, but it did allow the dev team to create the slightly bizarre but engrossing story mode

World of Warcraft: Legion, the upcoming expansion is currently in the alpha testing phase. New content is added to the alpha all the time for players to dive in and try out.
It’s called Maw of Souls, and it takes place on a massive ship that is navigating the Vyrkul afterlife. Players start on land before being transported to the hull of the Vyrkul ship known as the Naglfar. It’s filled with all the typical World of Warcraft goodness: there are numerous boss battles, plenty of trash mobs and loot to be had.
However, the final boss isn’t something you see every day. Once players reach the end, a massive kraken woman appears and starts destroying the ship with her tentacles. It’s a drawn-out fight and a hectic-looking one at that, but it sure does look cool.
Although the dungeon only went live on the game’s alpha build last night, more than a few players have already completed it and uploaded videos for all to see.
Of course, the entire dungeon is subject to change in the upcoming months as Blizzard prepares Legion for release. The expansion doesn’t yet have a release date, but it is expected to launch sometime in the summer of 2016.
New Demon Hunter armor for the World of Warcraft Legion expansion have been revealed in the alpha, along with a new Dungeon called Neltharion’s Lair.
Tier 19 armor for the new Demon Hunter class above level 100 have been confirmed in a report. The new armor include regular and rare Mythic versions.
The regular Tier 19 Demon Hunter set comes in four colors: Normal, Heroic, Alliance, and Horde colors. Meanwhile, the mythic version of the Demon Hunter set glows with the similar green energy found on Illidan Stormrage.
Neltharion’s Lair is the cave where Neltharion’s followers live. In the Warcraft universe, Neltharion is currently known as Deathwing, a dragon with the Aspect of Death and is considered a main threat to Azeroth. Deathwing intends to wipe mortals off Azeroth, which is technically everybody. The players may fight the followers of Deathwing inside the dungeon, as the lore confirms a large hostile army inside the lair that may destroy Azeroth if they start to mobilize.
In other news, a single patch note for the Windwalker specialization of the Monk Class in patch 6.2.3 has been released. The patch correctly deals the PvP damage of the Storm, Earth, and Fire summons, copying the Rising Sun Kick, as they previously dealt lower damage than expected. As of Legion, World of Warcraft now allows multi-specialization for character classes. The new active and passive skills of other Monk specializations being mixed into the Windwalker may have affected and bugged out its damage.

A new leak regarding the “Legion” expansion pack for “World of Warcraft” indicated that the upcoming game will come with a new wardrobe tab. According to sources, the leaked images came from the beta version of the game.
Unfortunately, the clip showing off the new feature has already been removed. But according to Kotaku, which was able to capture screenshots from the video, the new feature will make it easier for gamers to manage their collected items.
As explained by the gaming new site, the wardrobe tab displays the player’s character alongside the looted items such as clothes and armor. Through this new section, gamers will no longer have to store their cosmetic items in the game’s Void Storage. It will also give them a bigger space for all of the low-level items that they will come across in their digital journey.
But, as the site noted, the wardrobe tab, along with the other new features of the expansion pack, were first unveiled during the beta tests for the game. In other words, developer Blizzard Entertainment could still change these or completely remove them from “Legion”.
The upcoming “Expansion” pack does not yet have an official release date, but the studio is targeting to debut it sometime during the second or third quarter of this year. It will only be available for the Microsoft Windows and OS X platforms once it comes out.

Guild Wars 2 Online
Welp! It seems like even the most popular folks aren’t the cleanest. The much renowned Guild Wars 2 YouTuber team
Suck at Love have been banned by ArenaNet for hacking.
The team is well known for its music videos created for Guild Wars 2. The team was banned for map hacking, in which
they were able to access 29 map points in less than a minute.
This, according to ArenaNet, is simply not possible without the use of hacking programs that would violate the User
Agreement and Rules of Conduct of the game.
As expected, Suck at Love posted a video to claim their innocence, but it was taken down on YouTube. A thread on
the Guild Wars 2 forum is also regarding the matter,in which ArenaNet has replied to players’questions with the
“Customer Support has carefully reviewed the data that resulted in the termination of the game account in question.
They verified that this account accessed 29 map points in under 60 seconds. It is not possible to accomplish this
without the use of a third-party program, the kind of program that is expressly forbidden by our User Agreement and
our Rules of Conduct. Because of these facts, the account termination will not be reversed.”
Looks like Suck at Love also sucked at obeying rules. Remember folks, cheating isn’t cool, especially in multiplayer games.
