Alcatroz Xplorer Go! 100BT and Rapoo 8000s keyboard review

Recently I got myself two keyboards, the Alcatroz Xplorer GO! 100BT (Bluetooth) and the Rapoo 8000s dual keyboard mouse combo nano wireless. With this review hopefully would help anyone out there who may be planning between a bluetooth type devices and wireless type devices.

While waiting out during this Covid-19 virus lockdown and working from home, I went ahead and purchase th Alcatroz Xplorer Go! 100BT keyboard thinking that it might a good idea to use bluetooth to connect to my PC and other devices without having to sacrifice a USB port, especially on my laptop where there is a limited number of slots available. However after using it for awhile, this didn't turn out to be such a good idea, plus this keyboard design was not going the way that I've planned out.

My RAID Shadow Legend game play so far

I've started playing Plarium RAID Shadow Legend since October 2019 having decided to slowdown playing on Pixonic War Robots. I wanted something different from the usual 1st person shooter game. I had played many versions of RPG from the very first Apple Phantasie with its very basic graphics, the popular Ultima, then to the much better graphics and music of and scary atmosphere of Diablo, and finally this.

War Robots game play getting harder

I've slowed down playing Pixonics War Robots mobile game around October 2019. I started another mobile game from Plarium RAID Shadow Legends to give myself some game difference. I didn't give up War Robots altogether having amassed a tidy little Robots and Weapons. Just milking along on the daily advertisement viewing reward collection. And should I gather enough Silver Ag, I would upgrade an item. Mind you, the amount needed to upgrade anything was so exorbitant making it near impossible to gain any upgrade advantage. Coupled with the new Titan robots, pilots, modules, etc, it takes forever to upgrade anything! Thankfully Pixonic tried to give additional silver, but it is never enough. It still takes forever to upgrade! Period.

War Robots Pilots, Death Squads, and new stuffs

I am still banging ahead with Pixonics War Robots mobile game despite considering to stop playing for quite some time. I suppose the idea of piloting mechs and busting other mech still appeals to me. From my last post, there were additional changes, which some players considered it as a move by Pixonics to glean some funds out of the players. Any additional stuff added requires an arduous uphill time consuming and costly upgrading process.

War Robots October Update

Finally I have played War Robots game for exactly one year after quitting Pokemon. It is probably about quitting time for War Robots as well. During this one year of playing this online multiplayer battle mode, I have seen many changes done by Pixonics in trying to keep the game interesting. Unfortunately more often than not, the changes made the game more difficult and takes the fun out of it.

So here’s the quick low down on the good, the bad and the ugly of this War Robots game.

War Robots Recent May 2018 update, Free-For-All mode & etc

War Robots recently had an update to their game which saw a new game map on a ship carrier, changes to the battle rewards and black market, and a couple of new robots and new weapons. Some of the changes I felt was much improved over the previous offering especially for the black market random chance.

I think with the new update, I would have hoped for some improvement on the game balance. There are still lopsidedness in the mix of team players ability and strengths. There were situation where the opposing red team has way too many superior players and made quick work out of the under strength blue team. It didn’t take long before the game was considered a lost cause. However due to the penalty of quitting the game early, I just have to face the bitter pill of being obliterated and hope that I have caused a high enough damage points to be at least in the top two spot of the losing team to avoid getting negative rating.

War Robots - Supply Line Drop, Battle League Rewards and Component Collection

It’s been a month since the War Robots Lunar event was over. Pixonics has made several more changes and introduced more robots and weapons, and they were only available by 10,000 components of their own type. This made it very difficult to obtain and with more and more of these types of robots and weapons, the component collection also becomes more difficult especially in the black market random spin.

The new robots and weapons were much more powerful. And if too many of these were in the team line up, the gameplay could really suffer and made it less enjoyable. So I do hope the gamemakers would balance the gameplay out. For example I found the Shocktrain weapon to be too powerful and a range that gives it too good a coverage. A shot from it reduced my robot durability by as much 30% and even if it bounced onto my robot, the reduction was much too devastating. If a weapon should be able to hit multiple targets should have far less damage logically speaking. The damage should be shared amongst the several robots that it hits. Despite Pixonics reducing the damage inflicted, it was still unfair to the players in the receiving end of the stick. Pixonic should take note of this.
