New updates are added at the bottom of this story…

The original story (published December 09, 2021) follows:

Old School RuneScape is one of the most popular MMORPGs available on both PC and mobile. Developed and published by Jagex, the video game came to mobile in 2018 and has a larger player base than Runescape.

It features all the core gameplay mechanics of the original game along with new features like God Wars Dungeon. It takes place in a fictional place called Gielinor.

Unsurprisingly, the game’s frequent updates cause bugs and glitches that sometimes make it unplayable and spoil the experience. Now Old School Runescape players are to complain (1,2,3,4,5,6,seven,8,9,10) that they can’t log in, some saying the game crashes for them.

Many say they are automatically disconnected every few minutes. Players suggest that the problem appeared after the recent update. Generic solutions like erasing data and reinstalling the game don’t help either.

Most of the time, users are kicked when teleporting to another location. Old School Runescape players are frustrated with the developers because they can’t log into the game for a while.


There is a problem on mobile that keeps deleting my account from the account. Do not log out, go to the OSRS home screen and the account stays logged in. This happens when I’m teleporting, crafting involving jars, having my infernal axe, or just being idle. @JagexSupport

@JagexSupport Hi there seems to be a problem with mobile. Every time I log in it takes about 3 seconds and then instantly returns to the login screen. It only started today after the 3 hour maintenance? I tried redownloading the app, but it’s the same.

Thankfully, Jagex Support said they are aware of the Old School RuneScape connection issues and advised that it is currently under investigation. They also suggested users play the game on PC in the meantime, as there is no ETA on when a patch will be released.

Hi! We are currently aware of the issue you describe and are currently investigating a resolution for this issue, in the meantime please use the PC client to resolve your issue in the meantime. Thanks! – Mod Pixel

A look at some of the major trade events and economic indicators to come this week:

Dell Technologies releases its latest quarterly snapshot on Monday.

Wall Street predicts that the IT and technology services company’s fiscal third quarter earnings fell from the same period last year. This would echo the company’s results in its previous two quarters. Investors will be tuning in for an update on how Dell’s personal computer sales trends are doing as the holiday shopping season approaches.


Best Buy has struggled this year amid weakening consumer demand and rising costs due to supply chain disruptions.

The country’s consumer electronics chain reported lower quarterly profits and revenue in the first half of its current fiscal year, which began in February, as consumers restrained electronics spending amid steep prices. higher for basic necessities such as food and gas. Wall Street expects economic trends to continue to weigh on Best Buy in the third quarter. The company releases its quarterly results on Tuesday.

The Commerce Department released its October tally of new home sales in the United States on Wednesday.

Economists forecast sales slowed last month to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 572,500 homes. Sales rose at an annual rate of 603,000 units in September. The housing market cooled after a strong start to the year as significantly higher mortgage rates made home ownership less affordable for many potential buyers.

]]> Released from jail, Navlakha reaches Navi Mumbai ‘home’ https://jvc-europe.com/released-from-jail-navlakha-reaches-navi-mumbai-home/ Sat, 19 Nov 2022 19:50:26 +0000 https://jvc-europe.com/released-from-jail-navlakha-reaches-navi-mumbai-home/ ACTIVIST-JOURNALIST Gautam Navlakha, a defendant in the Elgaar Parishad case, was released from Taloja Central Jail on Saturday night and placed under “house arrest” following the November 10 Supreme Court order.

Navlakha, who was arrested after his surrender on April 14, 2020, has since been behind bars. He has been moved to a community hall in a building in Navi Mumbai, which will be his “home” for the next month for him and his partner, Sahba Husain. The Supreme Court had ordered that he be placed under house arrest for an interim period which will be reviewed and a decision on his prosecution will be made after one month.

The Supreme Court on Friday rejected the National Investigation Agency’s (NIA) request to overturn the Nov. 10 order and ordered the agency to comply within 24 hours, clearing the way for the release. of Navlakha.

Following this, the NIA submitted a compliance report to the Mumbai Special Court on Saturday through Special Prosecutor Shrikant Sonkawade. The report says an open grill in the premises where Navlakha is staying will be locked and a second exit from the kitchen on the ground floor will be permanently locked during his stay. In accordance with the orders of the SC, CCTV cameras have been installed at the entry and exit points of the premises. After the compliance report was registered by the Mumbai court, a release order was issued.

“Defendant number 11 Gautam Navlakha will be placed under house arrest at the mentioned address… Police Commissioner, Navi Mumbai, will provide necessary escort for the movement of the defendant and house arrest for security and the security of the accused,” Special Judge Rajesh Katariya said in his order on Saturday.

Among the conditions set for Navlakha’s house arrest are that he would pay for police escorts guarding the premises. Navlakha had paid a sight draft of Rs 2.4 lakh to Navi Mumbai Police for the same. He was also responsible for installing CCTV cameras.

While her partner can use a basic mobile phone with call and text functionality, he cannot have an internet connection. It was argued that there is also no objection to the monitoring of phone calls made on his phone. Navlakha was only allowed to use a phone provided to him by police personnel for 10 minutes a day in their presence. Both Husain and Navlakha have been banned from using internet and communication devices and electronic gadgets like computer, laptop, iPad.

He was allowed to meet two members of his family once a week for three hours. He can also meet with a lawyer. Navlakha will also be allowed to walk outside in the company of police personnel, if necessary, without speaking to anyone. Navlakha and her partner can also use a TV, but not a smart TV, which is internet-based. He will also have access to the logs.

Officers may conduct searches or inspections of premises.

“We clarify that this should not be taken to mean that such searches will be carried out, which will constitute abuse and which is not justified by the obvious need to carry out such searches. It should not be used to harass the petitioner,” said the SC order dated November 10.

Navlakha and 15 others were arrested in the Elgaar Parishad case from 2018 to 2020. Besides Navlakha, Varavara Rao and Sudha Bharadwaj are out on bail. Academic Anand Teltumbde was released on bail this week by the Bombay High Court, but is suspended for two weeks for the NIA to appeal to the SC.

NJ brewers, lawmakers fight rules they say limit craft beer trade https://jvc-europe.com/nj-brewers-lawmakers-fight-rules-they-say-limit-craft-beer-trade/ Sat, 19 Nov 2022 10:00:56 +0000 https://jvc-europe.com/nj-brewers-lawmakers-fight-rules-they-say-limit-craft-beer-trade/

Fancy a craft beer at a New Jersey brewery? Just remember a few rules:

No sipping before taking a mandatory brewery tour. No ordering nachos as there are no kitchens. You won’t find any coffee or coke for your non-drinking friends either. Expect no more than two TVs — each not permitted by the state of New Jersey to exceed 65 inches.

Be aware that the brewery is only allowed 25 “special events” per year, such as trivia contests, fundraisers, open mic nights. There are also stipulations regarding the publicity of these events, as well as the television broadcast of championship games such as the World Series.

“People say the rules can’t be as ridiculous as they look,” said Lori White, co-owner of Zed’s Beer in Marlton. “They are.”

New Jersey’s Alcoholic Beverage Control (ABC) Division initiated the regulations based on 2012 state legislation that qualified brewers as manufacturers with beer tasting rooms — not bars. The idea was to support breweries without siphoning off business from bars and restaurants that pay $500,000 or more for liquor licenses. Brewer maker licenses range from around $1,250 to $7,500.

In a statement on Thursday, ABC Director James B. Graziano said the agency “will support craft brewery owners in their efforts to grow their businesses…and promote fairness in the robust industry.” New Jersey alcoholic beverages”.

The ABC has long maintained that it is wrongly implicated as the author of draconian regulations, saying it abides by state law and has fostered compromise between breweries, bars and restaurants.

“These rules don’t exist in any other state,” said Jamie Bogner, editorial director of Craft beer and brewing magazine in Ft. Collins, Colorado. “New Jersey is making it impossible for brewers, including limiting the amount of beer breweries can make.”

Currently, a bipartisan group of state lawmakers is sponsoring bills aimed at easing the restrictions. Sen. Michael Testa (R., Cape May County) called the “disastrous” regulations “an affront to the freedoms breweries should enjoy.”

In September, Death of the Fox, a brewery in Clarksboro, Gloucester County, sued the ABC for an “attack on small brewers.”

Starting on Thanksgiving and continuing through January, a group of New Jersey brewers will begin selling an Indian lager called Brew Jersey as a nationwide fundraising mechanism to lobby the state legislature. to “fix a broken system,” according to Eric Orlando, head of the Brewers Guild of New Jersey, representing 50 of the state’s 141 breweries. (Pennsylvania has about 350.)

The IPA recipe is published on BrewJersey.com so any brewer can make and sell the beer, donating profits to the advocacy effort. Each can of beer will have a QR code informing consumers how to participate.

Brian Sappio, 43, from Marlton, is a Zed customer and artist who plays guitar at South Jersey breweries.

“Beer pub audiences are more receptive and tip better than bar audiences,” he said. “The beer artisans are very close-knit and welcoming. This is no place to get drunk. You can bring your children. »

White agreed, “Each brewery has its own culture, identity, history.” But as breweries became more popular, she said, liquor licensees fought to “make breweries less interesting places.”

That’s “as far from the truth as you can get,” said Diane Weiss, executive director of the New Jersey Licensed Beverage Association.

Her organization wants breweries to succeed, she says, and sell their beers to local bars and restaurants. “Nobody fears the competition,” Weiss said.

But, she added, as holders of manufacturing licenses, brewers were “granted privileges they weren’t entitled to: selling beer by the glass and hosting special events.”

If breweries want to be liberated, “get the right license,” Weiss demanded, meaning the expensive liquor license.

Brewers say that because buying, assembling and maintaining brewery equipment can cost $1 million or more, they’ve likely exceeded the cost of a liquor license.

Either way, Weiss said, “we don’t lobby against brewers. We lobby against how they try to turn their licenses into something more.

As far as licensed restaurateurs are concerned, relations seem to be improving.

Voorhees attorney James M. Graziano, an attorney for the New Jersey Brewers Association (unrelated to ABC executive James B. Graziano), said, “I don’t think the restaurants have a lot of trouble. The bars are always lobbying against us, but the restaurants know that the brewers don’t want to install kitchens.

Robin Winzinger, owner of Robin’s Nest restaurant in Mount Holly, said she had two thoughts about the breweries: “They are able to sell alcohol without paying huge license fees. It’s not fair. But the breweries near me attract younger crowds who eat here after drinking. I’m ok with that.”

Yet the inability of breweries to offer foods other than single-serving snacks is creating problems.

While customers are allowed to bring meals from restaurants, breweries cannot make their own arrangements with those restaurants to regularly prepare and deliver food, said Jay Mahoney, owner of Third State Brewing in Burlington City.

“We can’t even coordinate with food trucks, which aren’t allowed to park outside our doors,” Mahoney said.

In Pennsylvania, things work differently: breweries can have kitchens. In fact, Commonwealth law requires that food “sufficient to constitute breakfast, lunch or dinner” be available at beer halls because drinking without eating hastens intoxication. Water in food dilutes alcohol while protein and fat slow alcohol absorption, research shows.

“New Jersey is the only state I know of that bans food,” Bogner said.

More important than meals, brewers say, are special event limitations.

“The state is overriding, telling us what we can and cannot do within our own walls,” said Clint Brown, operations manager at Farmers & Bankers Brewing in Woodstown, Salem County.

Breweries must register their 25 annual events with the state. If they hold a 26th event, the brewery risks losing its license.

“We could use all 25 in three months,” owner Mike Melniczuk said, adding that New Jersey only allows breweries to host 52 private parties a year. “You need these things to attract people.”

Burdened by so many restrictions, he said, “you could see Jersey breweries moving to Delaware or Pennsylvania.

“Does that make sense?”

Overwatch 2’s Controversial SMS Protection System Finally Supports Prepaid Phone Numbers https://jvc-europe.com/overwatch-2s-controversial-sms-protection-system-finally-supports-prepaid-phone-numbers/ Thu, 17 Nov 2022 21:08:59 +0000 https://jvc-europe.com/overwatch-2s-controversial-sms-protection-system-finally-supports-prepaid-phone-numbers/

Blizzard has rolled out a new Monitor 2 patch that includes balance changes for several heroes, a Mei bug fix that allows her to return to the game, and much more.

One of the biggest updates, and one that isn’t mentioned in the patch notes, is to the SMS Protect system, a controversial aspect of Blizzard’s plan to prevent banned cheaters and toxic players from return to free play. Starting today, players who haven’t purchased Monitoring 1 will be able to use a prepaid mobile phone to access Monitor 2.

“Starting today, Blizzard is expanding global access to SMS Protect to prepaid phones, welcoming more players to Overwatch 2 and continuing its commitment to combating disruptive behavior and protecting the integrity of the user experience. players,” a Blizzard spokesperson said. “This update may take several hours to fully roll out.”

Blizzard provided more details in a forum post. Not all prepaid phone services will be supported, although Blizzard expects most to be. “While we expect most prepaid service plans to be eligible now, mobile carriers sometimes define their plans differently,” wrote community manager Andy Belford. VOIP, Wi-Fi, text, and Internet phone services are still not supported, and each phone number can only be registered to one Battle.net account.

This is the latest development in a major shift from the original stance of requiring all players to connect a post-paid mobile number to their Battle.net account. Blizzard quickly dropped this requirement for most people who came from Monitoring 1 — veteran players do not need to connect a phone to their account. However, the system still prevented many potential new players from checking out. Monitor 2.

Blizzard has other ways to detect cheaters and toxic players, as well as measures designed to protect the game and decent players from these jerks (though you may still encounter some jerks on occasion). There’s a new system, for example, that allows Blizzard to review voice chat transcripts after a player has been reported. Allowing new accounts to register a prepaid phone won’t necessarily open the floodgates to more toxicity, although smurfing might be more problematic. In any case, as Belford noted, “since the introduction of Defense Matrix, our new initiative to stop disruptive actors in Overwatch 2, we’ve successfully taken action on thousands of accounts that we believe violate Blizzard’s in-game code of conduct.

Ultimately, one of Overwatch’s core principles is inclusiveness. Lowering the barrier to entry for new players, especially those without access to a post-paid phone, is a positive move for accessibility after many people have been left behind. Hopefully this will fix the issue that Cricket Wireless and Metro by T-Mobile users are having when linking their phones. Plus, it could help Blizzard increase that already impressive player count.

Like the 14 Dual 11 has come to an end, the depression of consumer morale in China and the huge change in consumption habits have made this year’s shopping festival not reach the feverish growth of previous years.

In an unprecedented move, neither Tmall nor JD.com announced their GMV (Gross Merchandise Volume) results for this year’s Double 11, also known as Singles’ Day. Tmall reported that the sales volume was the same as last year which reached $74.56 billion (540.3 billion RMB), while JD.com reported that its performance exceeded the industry growth rate and hit a record high after last year. $48.17 billion (RMB 349.1 billion) GMV – although specific figures were not given. Additionally, the live gala ceremonies usually hosted by Alibaba, JD.com and Pinduoduo did not take place, possibly to avoid large gatherings and COVID-19 transmission.

A more diversified market

However, the shopping fever has not completely subsided. Tmall revealed that in the first hour of the festival on October 31, the turnover of 102 brands exceeded 13.8 million dollars (100 million RMB). Although it only launched its commerce feature in 2020, Douyin’s GMV increased by 629.9% per year-over a year on the first day of this year’s Double 11 event. It’s clear that newcomers are catching up fast in their transition from content sharing to e-commerce. Since each platform comes with its own bankable influencers, the likes of Douyin’s most popular content creator, Crazy Little Brother Yang, who has over 100 million subscribers, are likely to be key to the sales growth.

Although the two major Chinese tech giants remain silent on their GMVs, according to Syntun, an independent big data monitoring company, the total GMV of all major e-commerce platforms has exceeded 1 trillion RMB for the first time. . Traditional e-commerce platforms brought in around RMB 934 billion, while new e-commerce platforms like Douyin brought in around RMB 181 billion, according to their report. Then there were additional contributions from new retail platforms and community group buying online retailers.

Household products, outdoor sports, pet supplies, wellness, toys are new winning categories

Although overall sales figures have not been released, new consumer trends can still be identified. Tmall reported that outdoor sports, pet supplies, toys and collectible jewelry are the new four-pillar industries (traditionally, the four energy-pillar industries were beauty, consumer packaged goods, consumer electronics, and apparel). In these four categories, sales of 358 brands exceeded RMB 100 million.

JD.com also pointed out eight new consumer trends, including more spending on products that deliver long-term returns, particularly in the health, wellness and education categories, as well as environmentally friendly labels. Other big trends on JD.com include a focus on new arrivals and items that bring comfort (think rocking chairs and scented candles).

China-chic products inspired by traditional culture have also led the way at JD.com. Indeed, domestic products continue to be consumers’ first choice. According to Douyin’s Double 11 report in 2022, national assets accounted for more than 90 percent of the top 100 best-selling products.

What happened in luxury?

In terms of luxury consumption, more than 200 luxury brands joined Tmall this year, spanning handbag, fashion, jewelry, beauty and liquor categories. However, instead of offering discounts, many of them used the festival to launch new products. Tmall launched more than 100,000 new luxury products this Double 11, including the Kate handbag from Saint Laurent and the Reverso Tribute Duoface Calendar watch from Jaeger-LeCoultre.

During this time, JD.com used new technologies such as VR, AI and Digital Collectibles in Omnichannel Scenarios to Boost Luxury Shopping Double 11. During the first 10 minutes of the peak shopping period (from 8 p.m. on November 10 to 12 a.m. on November 11), the best performing luxury houses such as Bulgari, Celine, Fendi and Loewe saw their turnover increase about 18 times compared to last year. . Others like Burberry, Ferragamo, Prada, Lanvin and Qeelin would have increased more 227 percent for the same period – showing promising peak hour sales. Sales of luxury handbags and shoes rose 180% year over year on JD.com, another general boost for luxury.

Quality and loyalty rather than quantity?

As markets mature amid economic uncertainty, the exponential phase of China’s e-commerce market growth has come to an end. The focus is now on how to optimize the consumer experience. Tmall, for example, increased the maximum number of products that can be saved in shopping carts from 120 to 300 this year.

To build customer loyalty, develop membership has become a priority for traders and platforms. In 2017, Alibaba launched its “88 Member” loyalty program to boost customer engagement and improve personalized service. However, the initiative proved to be a success. In June, Alibaba said the 25 million users registered with its loyalty program had spent an average of $4,865 (57,000 RMB) per person over the past year.

Brands are also building their own membership programs, with existing VIP members accounting for a large portion of sales. At this year’s Double 11, over 2,700 businesses on Tmall saw half of their total sales made by their own members. In addition, more than 4,000 brands saw their member sales increase by 100% compared to the previous year.

These results paint a complex picture. Purchasing priorities and categories have clearly shifted as consumer motives evolve to be more quality-focused. As Dai ShanEmphasized the president of Alibaba’s Core Domestic E-commerce, the future of Double 11 is no longer a machine producing ever-higher GMVs, but an important platform for better customer experience and growth of the company.
