Washington: The Pacific may well be the part of the world most likely to see a “strategic surprise,” said U.S. Indo-Pacific coordinator Kurt Campbell, in comments apparently referring to possible Chinese ambitions to establish island bases in the region.

Campbell told the Center for Strategic and International Studies in Washington on Monday (AEDT Tuesday) that the United States had “enormous moral, strategic and historical interests” in the Pacific, but had not done enough to help the region, unlike countries like Australia and New Zealand. .

“If you look and ask me, where are the places where we are most likely to see certain types of strategic surprises – the base or certain types of agreements or arrangements, it might just be in the Pacific,” he told an Australian. focused panel.

Campbell called it the problem that worried him the most over the next two years, “adding:” And we have very little time, working with partners like Australia, New Zealand, Japan, France. , who have an interest in the Pacific, to step up our game at all levels ”.

Campbell did not specify his baseline, but MPs from the Pacific Island Republic of Kiribati told Reuters last year that China had made plans to upgrade an airstrip and bridge over the one of its remote islands about 3,000 kilometers southwest of the US state of Hawaii.

Construction on the tiny island of Kanton would provide China with a deep foothold in territory that had been firmly aligned with the United States and its allies since World War II.

Kiribati said in May that the plans backed by China were a non-military project designed to improve transport links and support tourism.

Warzone Pacific Caldera has 3 new Call of Duty Vanguard snipers to choose from. However, there are clearly winners and losers.

Editor’s Note: A lawsuit has been filed against Activision Blizzard by the California Department of Fair Employment and Housing, which alleges the company has engaged in abuse, discrimination and retaliation against its female employees. Activision Blizzard has denied these allegations. Full details of the Activision Blizzard trial (content disclaimer: rape, suicide, abuse, harassment) are updated as new information becomes available.

The Pacific Update incorporated all Call of Duty: The Vanguard‘s weapons in War zone, adding 3 new sniper rifles and a new map to the battle royale. The new map, Caldera, is roughly the same size as Verdansk but plays very differently. Caldera has a lot more buildings, rocks, trees, and hills to maneuver around, which really reduces the engagement ranges to a much shorter distance than Verdansk. Sniper Rifles are still very viable on Caldera, just a bit more difficult to use due to the combat distances that typically occur across the map. The Pacific update also added a new game mode that only includes weapons and attachments from Call of Duty: The Vanguard in order to control the chaos that 3 different Call of Duty the games have on War zones meta.

VIDEO OF THE DAY

While players will be happy to use totally different weapons in War zone Pacific Caldera, like Automation, the sniper rifle meta doesn’t look much different than it has been over the past few months. The Kar98k of Modern war (2019) still reigns supreme in the classic Battle Royale game mode in War zone, yet, Call of Duty: The Vanguard has its own version of the Kar98k, and it’s by far the best sniper War zone Peaceful game mode. It may seem disappointing to those who are excited to have some variety in their War zone sniper experience, but luckily the weapon works very differently from its Modern war counterpart, for better or for worse.

A Kar98k can be included in almost all of the best loadouts for War zone Pacific Caldera with anyone’s favorite primary weapon. the avant-garde weapon version is a bit slower in its basic form with slow range in time and bullet speed, making the bullet drop from the gun much heavier than the Modern war version. the avant-garde Another sniper, the 3-line rifle, compensates for the weakness of the Kar98 at range with higher bullet speed and range efficiency, but it is a much slower sniper rifle. generally.

Warzone Pacific Caldera’s Best Sniper Rifles (and Accessories)


What is the best possible loading of Call of Duty Warzone is Kar98k

Kar98k

  • Muzzle: Silent scout
  • Barrel: VDD REO2K
  • Optical: Mk. 12 Night Vision
  • Store: Short stocks
  • Sub-barrel: M1930 Angled Strifle
  • Ammunition: Elongate
  • Rear handle: Fabric handle
  • Advantage 1: Fleet
  • Advantage 2: Deep breath


Easily the best sniper rifle in War zone Pacific Caldera, the Kar98k continues to uphold its reputation as the best sniper rifle in War zone. Paired with an SMG like the G43, the Kar98k is by far the best option for shooting Caldera’s short to medium range engagements.

The 3-line rifle

  • Muzzle: MX silencer
  • Barrel: Kovalevskaya 820mm R1MN
  • Optical: 1913 Variable 4-8x
  • Under the barrel: Empress sniper
  • Store: Mark VI skeleton
  • Mag: .30-06 20 round cartridges
  • Ammunition: Elongate
  • Grab: Leather handle
  • Advantage 1: Envelope
  • Advantage 2: Deep breath

The 3-Line rifle does a few things better than the Kar98k, but its pros don’t outweigh its cons. Rapid reach over time is essential for War zone, and although the 3-line rifle hits harder than the Kar98k, its range over time is still less than that of the Kar98k. the avant-garde The third sniper rifle, the Type-99, is a slightly worse version of the Kar98k, which doesn’t make it any more useful than other snipers in the game. The Kar98k reigns supreme in the Pacific Caldera and Classic Battle Royale, so players should rank their own ASAP.

Ducks at Golden Knights Preview: Vegas battles to keep seed in the Pacific https://ottf.org/ducks-at-golden-knights-preview-vegas-battles-to-keep-seed-in-the-pacific/ Fri, 31 Dec 2021 13:00:00 +0000 https://ottf.org/ducks-at-golden-knights-preview-vegas-battles-to-keep-seed-in-the-pacific/ The Vegas Golden Knights will close the book in 2021 with an afternoon tilt against the Anaheim Ducks today at T-Mobile Arena.

The Vegas Golden Knights will close the book in 2021 with an afternoon tilt against the Anaheim Ducks today at T-Mobile Arena.

The Knights have just emerged from an impressive offensive explosion, which sparked a 6-3 win over the Kings.

Today’s match will pit the top two teams in the Pacific Division against each other.

The Knights (21-12-0) have a one-point lead over Anaheim (17-9-7); Vegas remains ahead of the Western Conference with one point ahead of St. Louis, although the Blues have a game in hand.

The fact that either of these teams is top of the table is somewhat surprising given the difficult start in Vegas and the overall expectations surrounding the Ducks heading into the season.

But here we are.

The Golden Knights will be forced into today’s battle without their best offensive weapon, as the Knights have been struck down by yet another injury.

The club announced on Thursday that Max Pacioretty was out indefinitely after having successfully undergone wrist surgery. Pacioretty has been ardent, able to break career records with 12 goals and 21 points in 16 games. This is the second long-term injury he has suffered this season after missing 17 games with a broken foot.

It’s a big blow for a team that has been plagued with injury all year, especially with Mark Stone supposed to be healing an ongoing injury.

Alex Pietrangelo and Evgenii Dadonov are expected to return to the roster after missing two games in COVID-19 protocol. Dadonov will likely skate on the front row with Pacioretty and possibly Stone on the shelf.

Robin Lehner also remains on a daily basis.

Nolan Patrick may be able to adapt to today’s game; he’s been out of the lineup since the Oct. 22 Vegas game against Edmonton, limiting him to just four games as the Golden Knight. However, he has been a full participant in the practice and appears to be on the verge of returning.

As for the Ducks, Anaheim could do without stud center Trevor Zegras as well as famous Vegas killer Max Comtois; Additionally, Cam Fowler left the Ducks game on Wednesday and did not return, which makes it questionable for this afternoon.

The young Ducks players have made significant strides this year, helping the Ducks be a competitive team every night as well as a team that can provide John Gibson with much-needed and much-needed goal support.

Ryan Getzlaf has a new season and leads the team in assists (20); until a recent injury, he was one of the NHL’s most prominent players. He developed an excellent chemistry with Troy Terry, who was one of the biggest surprises of the season with 18 goals, tied for fifth in the NHL. His 30 points are also a record for the team.

But regardless of either team’s final lineup, the Knights will be looking to build on their 18-4-0 record against the Ducks.

Today’s game will be the third meeting between these clubs this season; Vegas won with a 5-4 shootout victory in late October, while Anaheim won in a wild 6-5 contest earlier this month.

Both games had high and tight scores, and both exhibited significant fluctuations in momentum.

In the October 29 game, William Carrier’s first goal of the season gave Vegas a 4-1 lead just under six minutes into the third period. However, the Knights exploded that lead, allowing three goals in just 5:11. The Knights won it in a shootout.

The Ducks were the ones with a 4-1 lead in the December 1 battle, as Anaheim struck four times in the second period. Vegas scored two straight shorthanded goals – one with 12 seconds left in the second period and the other just under two minutes into the third period – to bring the score to 4-3.

The teams traded goals, but Anaheim never lagged behind. Two late goals in the final 64 seconds of regulation time determined the outcome of the game, with Anaheim taking the lead.

It was one of only three losses for the Knights in December.

The series of seasons has been divided so far; each team won a game and each box score told a very different story. The first game featured eight goals scored 5-5, while the second was defined by special teams.

In fact, four of the five goals scored in the third period of the December 1 game were power-play or short-handed scorers; the Knights have scored back-to-back shorthanded goals, and following a tied goal from Jamie Drysdale, the other three were scored by a male advantage. The Knights scored twice on the power play, while Anaheim scored in the final power play of the Vegas game for the game’s third shorthanded goal of the game.

Vegas has improved dramatically on the power play lately, but Pacioretty’s absence will be felt. Even when not directly involved, he still posed a threat with his shot, keeping defenders honest.

Plus, at some point, the Knights’ recent power-play success will catch up with them. The results were remarkable, but the numbers don’t necessarily reflect a magically improved power play.

But it shouldn’t be underestimated how well Anaheim has thrived in special teams this season. The Ducks are in the top 5 in both categories, with an 85.9% penalty kill pass rate, good for third in the NHL. This will make the chances of Vegas on the power play even more difficult.

The Knights’ penalty killers will have their work cut out for them, too, as the Ducks have a 25.6 percent efficiency rating on the power play, good for fifth place overall.

Due to recent performances, the Knights climbed to 12th with a 20.7% conversion rate on men’s advantage, while the penalty kill (77.9%) fell to 23rd.

The Knights had very little power play success until December, in which they lit the torch 12 times, a league record.

But the Knights are tied for first in the league with 82 goals scored 5-5, which is the real bread and butter of the team. Anaheim scored 63 goals 5-5; while it’s still good for 11th in the NHL, it’s almost 20 goals short.

No matter how strong the game is, the Knights will need to spice up Anaheim with shots. Gibson returned to the lineup the other night and was in typical Gibson form, stopping 35 of 37 shots. He and Anthony Stolarz have been forced to make at least 34 saves in both games against the Knights this season, so getting pucks at the net will be key for Vegas.

Tonight is the second part of a six-game homestand but marks the last game of the calendar year; Vegas will look to finish strong as the 2021 portion of the season draws to a close.

Amid a ton of bugs and glitches, along with very little competitive support, Call of Duty’s top content creators Aydan, Dr Disrespect, and Nadeshot discussed how CoD Mobile “looks” 10 times better ”than Vanguard and Warzone.

Call of Duty: Mobile features content from almost every previous CoD game, with a ton of maps, weapons, and characters from franchise history available in one game.

Now, tired of Warzone and Vanguard, top Call of Duty content creators Aydan, Dr Disrespect, and Nadeshot have discussed how CoD Mobile is better than the main franchise entries.

It looks like Aydan’s time with Warzone is coming to an end, as the professional and highest-earning gamer tweeted on Dec. 21: “Losing my passion for Warzone & CoD day by day.”

Shortly after this tweet, he commented on CoD Mobile, asking “Why is COD: Mobile 10 times better than Warzone & Vanguard?” with a crying face emoji.

Popular streamer IceManIsaac responded, saying he “played in a COD: Mobile tournament and it was better than any Warzone tournament I’ve ever played.” To which Aydan said: “It almost feels like a ‘screw up the neck’ to us. This game is all we ask for. I really don’t get it.

Aydan isn’t alone in these thoughts, with 100 Thieves CEO and former CoD pro Nadeshot tweeting the same thing on December 28, saying “CoD Mobile is unfortunately better than Vanguard”.

Additionally, frustrated with Warzone, Dr Disrespect said on a recent live broadcast that he preferred to play CoD Mobile. “Give me some kind of PC-only porting problem, I don’t know,” he explained. “This game seems to be fun.”

Doc has played CoD Mobile before and has said he prefers the battle royale map design in Verdansk and enjoys “it all”.

Timestamp – 14:35

Warzone and Vanguard Season 1 Reloaded are coming soon, and Vanguard is still due to receive its League Play mode. But it remains to be seen if Aydan, Nadeshot, and Dr Disrespect give CoD Mobile a real chance.

For more Warzone, you can check out the Rebirth Island strategy which completely levels Vanguard weapons in just “30 minutes”.

Here’s how the players who left UW men’s basketball after last season are doing with their new teams https://ottf.org/heres-how-the-players-who-left-uw-mens-basketball-after-last-season-are-doing-with-their-new-teams/ Fri, 24 Dec 2021 21:06:17 +0000 https://ottf.org/heres-how-the-players-who-left-uw-mens-basketball-after-last-season-are-doing-with-their-new-teams/ The Washington men’s basketball team reaped great accolades with the return of hometown prep heroes including Terrell Brown Jr., Emmitt Matthews Jr., PJ Fuller and Daejon Davis.

The Washington men’s basketball team reaped great accolades with the return of hometown prep heroes including Terrell Brown Jr., Emmitt Matthews Jr., PJ Fuller and Daejon Davis.

The Husky quartet, which led UW to a 5-5 start, included most of Washington’s seven newcomers and were among 1,700 Division I players who entered the NCAA transfer portal this year.

But what about the six Huskies who left Montlake via transfers in an unprecedented mass exodus after a 5-21 win last season?

Here’s a look at what they’re doing with their new teams.

Erik Stevenson, G, South Carolina (24.4 MPG, 10.9 PPG, 4.5 RPG, 2.5 APG, 33.6% FG, 25.7% 3FG, 12 games, 12 starts): A year ago, the former Timberline High School star was the precious new addition for UW coach Mike Hopkins, who had returned to the Pacific Northwest after two years at Wichita State.

However, he struggled to adjust to the Huskies’ offensive and defensive philosophies and averaged 9.3 points and 3.6 rebounds while starting 23 of 26 games. Stevenson was the first to announce his post-season transfer.

“It’s culture, tough man-to-man defense and the rebound is a priority,” Stevenson said in a July interview with The Big Spur when asked why South Carolina was a Good choice. “On the offensive side, it’s a lot of movement without a lot of dribbling with the basketball. It’s not a lot of individual isolation. It’s not a hit (Washington), but it’s not my basketball style. I’m not really a 2-3 (zone) type, I found out. Coming (here) and playing man-to-man and playing offensively together is refreshing.

Stevenson, who shot 29.8% on 3 in Washington, started his tenure with the Gamecocks with a 2-for-25 shooting drop behind the arc in the first three games. He’s connected on 3 of 17 three-pointers in the last four games.

Where are they now?

Here’s a look at the seven Huskies who left the Washington men’s basketball team after finishing 5-21 for the 2020-21 season.

Marcus Tsohonis, G, Virginia Commonwealth (16.5 MPG, 5.3 PPG, 1.9 RPG, 2.0 APG, 36.2% FG, 34.5% 3FG, 11 games, 2 starts): A groin injury contributed to Tsohonis’ slow start to this season with the Rams, as he converted just 3 of 14 shots, including 0 for 6 on three-pointers, in the first four games. He came out of the crisis with a high 12 points to help beat Syracuse 67-55 and made a significant contribution to VCU’s recent four-game winning streak.

In April, Tsohonis told the Richmond Times-Dispatch that he had no animosity towards Hopkins, but “I felt like I could do a lot more” in Washington.

Tsohonis was slated to be redshirted as a freshman, but played 18 games and started nine when Quade Green became academically ineligible. When Green returned last season, Tsohonis came off the bench and averaged 10.4 points, 2.2 rebounds, 1.1 assists and 20 minutes.

RaeQuan Battle, G, Montana State (13.5 MPG, 5.2 PPG, 1.8 APG, 0.8 APG, 41.3% FG, 29.4% 3FG, 13 games, 0 starts): The four-star rookie from Marysville-Pilchuck High School was ranked No.4 in the state in 2019 and joined a star-studded UW class that included Isaiah Stewart and Jaden McDaniels, who were selected in the first round of the NBA Draft. after their freshman seasons. Battle was billed as a three-point specialist but never shot better than 27% of 3 (33 of 137) for two seasons. He has made four starts in 34 games averaging 4.8 points and 13.9 minutes.

Battle scored a career-high 19 points and had four three-pointers in a brilliant display of shooting in a 74-71 loss to Oregon on December 12, 2020. However, he did. scored only 26 points the rest of the season and didn’t. play in the last three games.

“It was just a weird situation,” Battle said in an interview with the Everett Herald. “It wasn’t really something crazy, I just didn’t know why I wasn’t playing. I remember coming off a good game against Oregon (19 points, a team record), and it was just weird.
