DICE is working on a fix for Battlefront 2’s invincibility glitch

In October of last year Star Wars: Battlefront 2's blasters-and-lightsabers power fantasy started degenerating into something out of a bad dream. All of the players in a match would sometimes find themselves unable to die.

Blaseball is not quite baseball. As we explained in 2020, It's “a simulated baseball league with the occasional Hellmouth” which wrapped up its ninth season with a goddamn JRPG boss fight. In 2021 Blaseball evolved into a “massively co-operative tactical strategy game” that somehow saw a team sucked into the nether realm by a black hole. Something like that, anyway. Soon all of that strangeness will come to the corporeal realm as Blaseball: The Card…
