UEFA Launches Tender to Find a Partner to Conduct Feasibility Study Regarding the Fight Against Match-fixing in European Football
Reading Time: < 1 minute

 

The Union of European Football Associations (UEFA) has started the search for an individual or organisation to conduct a feasibility study regarding the fight against match-fixing in European football.

The aim of the feasibility study is to examine ways to enhance football’s capacity to investigate and prosecute match-fixing cases by bringing UEFA closer to public authorities, national police, governments and state prosecutors.

“We must do more to fight match-fixing aggressively because collectively and individually, we haven’t done enough. The most important thing is co-operation with governments because our problem always was and always is that, even if we know many things, each case has to be prosecuted,” Aleksander Čeferin, President of UEFA said.

“The main problem is that our jurisdiction ends at football. We cannot tap phones, we cannot put people in prison, and with many computer servers being 10,000km from Europe, it’s a problem we cannot solve on our own. This study will look at how to bring together the different actors on this stage, so we are all working in partnership, not isolation, to tackle one of the biggest threats to the integrity of sport,” Aleksander Čeferin added.

The problem of match-fixing has increased in recent years. UEFA believes that there are various reasons why the fight against match-fixing needs to be strengthened. This feasibility study aims to address these challenges.

Zitro University is going to offer a new edition of its training event at SAGSE 2019 with the collaboration of the University of Palermo, one of the most prestigious universities in Latin America.

“This year we have chosen a different way to collaborate with SAGSE and show the casino operators our commitment with the Latin American region. After the extensive product presentation we made during the Zitro Experience Argentina in April, we believed that, on this occasion, the best way to add value to our customers was by contributing to creating at SAGSE a space for reflection on the future of the industry, which has to take into account the changes in consumer tastes and the abundant entertainment offer that comes hand in hand with new technologies,” Sebastián Salat, CEO of Zitro said.

“The University of Palermo and Zitro are united by the firm conviction that continuous training is an essential tool to face the changes that occur, at a speed every time more vertiginous, in all areas of our lives, and, of course, also in the gaming industry. We thank Zitro for inviting us to its Zitro University, and, above all, for continuing to promote this type of training events, so necessary in such a rapidly changing world,” Patricio O’Gorman, professor at the University of Palermo said.

‘Century Siege: TD Battles’ Going Live
Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

Synergizing ‘Card Battlers’ with Tower Defense, MOBAs, and Mythology!

Goober Games, in collaboration with Stepico, announced that their ambitious PvP title, ​Century Siege ​, will be launching globally on November 20th, 2019, after spending several months in Soft Launch. “With Century Siege we originally set out to follow the road paved by Clash Royale. But we soon realized that this pathwas well-worn and, by listening to our community, we decided that the only way to stand-out was to take risks and differentiate” – ​Benjamin Andre, Project Director and Lead Design ​.

Through this planned progression of tweaks, optimizations, and feature additions, the dust has officially settled; leaving Century Siege with the ability to stand on its own two feet, with a face all its own. ​Yes​, it has the ‘Elixer’ and ‘Card’ (Summon) mechanics that have become genre-staples; but it also has many tricks up its sleeve that add a much deeper level of Strategy.

An Offensive Tower class called ‘ ​Spawners ​’ that create a constant stream of friendly units that travel down the lane to assault the Opponent.

Players also choose a ​‘General’ ​, each with their own Special Abilities, that will lead the troops in battle. With Abraham Lincoln, lay waste to enemies with a barrage of cannonfire. Or, select Ghenghis Khan and assault the opponent’s Crystals with hordes of Mongolian Archers.

Once an Enemy Crystal is destroyed, ​‘Rift Creeps’ ​ of the player’s choosing (Minotaurs, Werewolves, Zombies, etc) will begin to rush that lane in a fashion that ​MOBA ​ fans will be familiar with (they even drop gold!).

These features coalesce into an engaging ‘Tug-of-War’ experience that succeeds in its quest to be different. If that was all that was to be said, it would already be enough to recommend giving Century Siege a shot. But, the personality and the ​World ​ that the game creates through its subtexts of Time Travel, Mythology, and historical figures, place Century Siege in a position to be considered one of the most unique ‘Tower Defense’ games released into the Mobile App Market.

Given that the team already has plans for a Single-Player mode or standalone TD game, it is apparent that there is certainly a lot of room for exploration within the world of Century Siege; and we are excited to see which paths this community will travel down. Take a look for yourself on November 20th, available for free on the Google Play and App Stores.
