Osorio and Toronto FC ready to make history on collectionfifatips

  • Toronto FC hoping to win first CONCACAF Champions League title
  • Canadian club face Mexican giants Chivas Guadalajara in the final
  • Osorio: The first leg is going to be key​

Most youngsters growing up in Canada usually have aspirations to be an ice hockey star or reach the podium at the Winter Olympics. For Toronto FC midfielder Jonathan Osorio, his dreams led to a career in football – a sport close to his South American roots.

“It’s a huge part of who I am. I grew up in Toronto, but in my household, it was a very Colombian culture,” Osorio said in an exclusive interview with FIFA.com. “In Colombia, football is the big sport, and it was my dad’s favourite sport. He passed that on to me and my brothers and we grew up to love the game. I believe my Colombian roots have helped me get to where I am now.”

A proud Canadian, who has made 20 international appearances for the North American nation, Osorio is happy to share his favourite Colombian footballing moment. “It was at the last World Cup, James [Rodriguez]’s goal against Uruguay in the Round of 16 and Colombia making the quarter-finals for the first time. That was huge.”

Looking to make history
Osorio can relate to scoring an important goal on the big stage. Last Tuesday in the Estadio Azteca, his early strike against Mexican giants Club America was a key moment in securing Toronto FC’s place in this year’s CONCACAF Champions League final, as they won the semi-final clash 4-2 on aggregate. The result puts the Major League Soccer (MLS) club within touching distance of the region’s top club prize and claiming CONCACAF’s berth at the FIFA Club World Cup UAE 2018. “It was amazing [to score] and an honour to play in that stadium, to represent my city and everything, and to play in such a big game,” Osorio said. “More than anything, I was just happy about what [the goal] meant in the actual game.”

Toronto FC’s journey to the two-legged final is the latest chapter in what has been a highly successful period for the Canadian outfit. They earned their CONCACAF Champions League spot by successfully defending their Canadian Championship title before claiming their first-ever MLS Supporters’ Shield (regular season champions) and MLS Cup titles in late 2017.

The focus now is on ending the dominance of Mexican clubs in the CONCACAF Champions League, having already upset the odds by eliminating the Liga MX duo of Tigres UANL and Club America. Standing in Toronto FC’s way of an historic first title is Club Deportivo (Chivas) Guadalajara, with the first leg taking place in Toronto this Tuesday 17 April before the decisive leg is played in Guadalajara on Wednesday 25 April.

Osorio believes the game plan that successfully guided the Reds past Tigres and America will be key to overcoming Chivas in the final. “Our belief is that we can play with them,” Osorio said. “In those four games, we didn’t just sit back and defend a lot. What we did was attack them. Similar to the other series, the first game is going to be key. We need to give ourselves an advantage before going back to Mexico, so that’s a huge key. If we put all our focus into the first leg, we’ll be in good shape.”

Did you know?

  • Only Mexican clubs have won the CONCACAF Champions League title since the competition’s formation in 2008
  • Monterrey is the most successful CONCACAF Champions League side with three titles, while Club America is the most successful club in the region with seven CONCACAF titles
  • Real Salt Lake (2011) and Montreal Impact (2015) are the only other MLS clubs to have reached the final
  • Osorio is one six players to lead the competition’s scoring charts with three goals​

December dreams
Should Toronto FC realise their goal of a regional crown later this month, a ticket to the United Arab Emirates and this year’s Club World Cup would also be secured by the Reds. Though his main thoughts are on the final, Osorio appreciates the potential of his side being the first from Canada and MLS to appear in the world club finals.

“I think it’s every footballers dream to play on the biggest stage,” he said. “The Club World Cup means you are representing your club and your continent, and that you are playing for a trophy that means you are the best in the world. It’s biggest tournament in club soccer, so that would definitely be a dream come true.”

collectionfifatips | MapleStory Blitz Launches First Update, Adds New Cards, Challenges, and Events

collectionfifatips | MapleStory Blitz Launches First Update, Adds New Cards, Challenges, and Events

The free to play Clash Royale esque MapleStory game MapleStory Blitz launched its first content update this week which introduced 36 new Zakum themed cards, a new dungeon, balance changes, and more. MapleStory Blitz is basically a 3 lane Clash Royale / Southpark: Phone Destroyer esque game based on Nexon’s popular MapleStory franchise.

Full list of changes:

  • Devastating Original Cards – Combine 36 unique cards found in Zakum’s Altar card pack with all the original cards;
  • Challenging New Dungeon – Join players around the globe and explore the perilous Zakum’s Altar dungeon;
  • Ranked Mode Enhancements – Ranked Match Season durations have been shortened from one month to two weeks;
  • Formidable PvE Battles – The PvE auto-battle feature allows players to seamlessly jump into PvE combat;
  • PvE/PvP Battle Guide – A helpful battle guide has been added to recommend which cards to use in specific battle situations;
  • Balance Adjustments – Players will notice additional balance adjustments for existing monster and skill cards;
  • Unique Events and Quests – Celebrate the update with several new events and quests.

Nexon has been trying to release a mobile hit in the West for some time now. MapleStory M seems to be the most comprehensive mobile MapleStory title thus far though in my opinion. Too bad it has the same auto-play systems found in most other mobile MMORPGs.

collectionfifatips | Shroud of the Avatar Officially Launching on March 27th

Richard Gariott’s Crowdfunded MMORPG Shroud of the Avatar is officially launching on March 27th, 2018. It’s been a long and tiring journey for Shroud of the Avatar (Original Kickstart was March, 2013), but the Ultima Online esque MMORPG is finally happening. The launch is coinciding with release #52 which introduces a lot of changes to the game including framerate improvements, scene rebuilds, offline spawning, tons of side quests, new recipes, and much much more.

Shroud of the Avatar will be a buy to play title, but those interested in checking the game out for free can do so through the game’s free trial system. It has numerous limitations (such as max skill level of 50), but still gives players a good glimpse into what Shroud of the Avatar is all about. The game plays very much like oldschool MMORPGs like Ultima Online and Runescape, so those looking for a modern theme park game should look elsewhere.

Other important dates for Shroud of the Avatar:

Mar 27, 2018 – Release 52: Launch Candidate
April 26, 2018 – Release 53
May 31, 2018 – Release 54
June 28, 2018 – Release 55
July 26, 2018 – Release 56
Aug 21 – 25, 2018 – Gamescom
Aug 30, 2018 – Release 57

MapleStory 2 English Will be Announced on April 14th, 2018 (Speculation) on collectionfifatips

MapleStory 2 English Will be Announced on April 14th, 2018 (Speculation) on collectionfifatips

Nexon is hosting its first ever “Maplestory Fest” on April 14th, 2018 in Los Angeles California. The purpose of the event is to celebrate all things MapleStory and to also make do some live Q&A sessions with the game’s developers as well as make some “exclusive announcements“. This could easily just be an announcement about a new Gatchapon, new upcoming content, or anything else really, but I don’t think it is. 2 days before Nexon put up the news about MapleStory fest and its “exclusive announcement” Nexon America posted a job listing for a “QA Tester” who will be responsible for “testing all features, functionality, and localization of the assigned games”.

On top of all that, MapleStory Fest is happening shortly after MapleStory 2 launched in China and seems to off to a strong start. On top of that, Nexon confirmed in their last earnings call that they were excited to be launching MapleStory 2 “around the world”. If an English version of MapleStory 2 was in the works, Maplestory Fest is the best time to announce it. I suspect we’ll hear something then.

In the meanwhile, check out my favorite MapleStory 2 video. It’s quite literally the cutest thing ever:

Mobile Action RPG Honkai Impact Launching Globally in English on March 28th – collectionfifatips.com

Mobile Action RPG Honkai Impact Launching Globally in English on March 28th - collectionfifatips.com

The free to play anime inspired mobile action RPG Honkai Impact will be launching globally in English on March 28th, 2018. The game has been available for some time in Asia, but this is the first time an official Western version will be playable. The game features instanced dungeons and boss fights with fast paced action combat and sleek anime graphics. Honkai Impact differentiates itself from other mobile games by having no auto play system. Players have to manually input commands and chain attacks together and earn their victories.

Honkai Impact is developed and published by the Chinese mobile game studio Mihoyo Co Ltd. I was actually pretty impressed with the production value of this one. The fact that it’s not just another auto play nonsense mobile game is a huge plus too.

Curious what Honkai Impact is all about? Check out my first look video below (Chinese version):

collectionfifatips | Capello: Russia can reach knockout stage

 Listen 
  • Capello reflects on scoring for Italy at Germany 1974
  • Former England manager singles out Harry Kane as a player to watch
  • He expects hosts Russia to reach the second round​

There is little doubt that Fabio Capello is an accomplished manager. He has been a collector of trophies across his 36-year coaching career, most notably winning nearly everything domestically and on the European front with Italian giants AC Milan in the early 1990s. Though successful at club level, Capello is no stranger to the FIFA World Cup™. As a player, he represented Italy at Germany 1974, and 36 years later, he took England to the Round of 16 at South Africa 2010.

With Russia 2018 on the horizon, FIFA.com caught up with the 71-year-old to share in his World Cup memories. The current coach of Chinese club Jiangsu Suning looked back at the goal he scored in his only World Cup appearance and reflected on England’s 2010 campaign. He also shed light on Italy’s surprise failure to qualify for Russia 2018 and revealed his hopes for his former team and World Cup hosts Russia.

FIFA.com: As a world-class coach, how does it feel looking after a Chinese Super League team? 
Fabio Capello: For me, working in Asia is a new venture in a different world – a world of fast development. A lot of work needs to be done, but the Chinese have both ambition and resources to improve their game. Their national team has a great manager in Marcello Lippi and he can provide the guidance for their football, in general.

This year’s World Cup is drawing near. What are your memories of playing – and scoring – at the World Cup in 1974? I scored a useless goal against Poland because we lost the game 2-1, and were thus eliminated by Argentina, due to goal difference. So it wasn’t a World Cup which left me with fond memories. I knew there were many Italian immigrant workers in Germany [supporting us], but we packed for home after the group stage.

Were you fascinated by the World Cup as a youngster? What do you remember about watching it in those early days?
I have always been in love with football. As a child, I started playing football. The first World Cup I followed was Sweden 1958. I watched the games on TV. Brazil won that World Cup by defeating Sweden 5-2 in the Final and Pele scored twice. After so many years, I still remember Pele’s goals. That World Cup saw his emergence as a great star.

Were you disappointed to only play in one World Cup? Did you feel you could have helped Italy in 1970 or 1978, in particular?
I was very disappointed to miss the 1978 World Cup in Argentina. I had played all the qualifying matches, but when we headed to the World Cup, I was left out of the squad. It remains a pity for me, to this day.

As a coach, what are the big challenges of leading a team at the World Cup?
To train a national team, you have to know what team you have at your disposal and what this team is capable of. You need to get the best out of them and take them as far as possible. Yet, sometimes, you can’t achieve your goals. Some players underperform playing under pressure and even key players make mistakes during a World Cup. A team needs leaders to drive it forward, but you never know how it will end.

Looking back now, how do you reflect on England’s campaign at South Africa 2010?
It was sad. Against Germany, we could have drawn them level at 2-2 during the first half. Probably, we should talk about another World Cup for England. The only problem for England is that their players [go to the World Cup] tired after a stressful season, during which they have never been rested.

Why do you think the English always tend to struggle at major tournaments, despite the talented players the country produces? Do you think there is any chance of that changing in Russia?
For this World Cup, England have youngsters with great talent and knowledge. It is possible that these young men don’t feel the pressure, so they might play without tension. A key problem, in my opinion, is that they come [to the World Cup] very physically tired to compete with teams, whose players are not so fatigued.

Would you have liked a Harry Kane in your England team?
Harry Kane is a great striker, who is important [for the team]. He is the sort of player that every team want to have. Above all, he has a good nose for goal. He doesn’t wait for the ball. Instead, he moves constantly in attack to create danger. He is definitely a player to watch in Russia.

You also know Russia well, of course. What do you think is a realistic objective for the team at this World Cup?
I saw the draw. They will get passed the first round. I have both taught and learned [during my tenure as Russia coach] and I hope these qualities can help the team stand in good stead and go further in this World Cup. This would be another success for this nation, who have invested big into football.

And what do you expect of the country itself as hosts of the tournament?
There should be no problems. Russia is a great country and the people are great. They have invested a great deal [in hosting the World Cup] and the security there is very good. They want to make a big impression in front of the watching world and they can make it a great tournament.

One of the big surprises in Russia 2018 qualifying was Italy’s failure to reach the finals. What did you make of that, and what do you feel needs to be done to improve the Azzurri’s fortunes?
It was so sad to see the Italian team fail to make the World Cup. We used to be protagonists on this global stage and have won this competition four times. But at this moment, Italian football does not have many talented players and the qualities of their game are not so high. It is time to start working from scratch to understand where we went wrong, and above all, to try to produce something different, based on the characteristics of Italian footballers, and not copying the characteristics of others.

Rotface is one of the two abomination bosses inside the Plagueworks section of Icecrown Citadel that players have to have to defeat to be able to unlock Professor Putricide’s laboratory and fight him there.

Now Warmane-Gold shares with you The Warmane Guide For Rotface 25 Heroic. Warmane-Gold as a professional Warmane Gold website. With more than 10 years of excellence, we’ve got served a large number of prospects. When you are hesitating exactly where to buy warmane gold, Warmane-Gold is going to be a superb selection.

Abilities:

1. Mutated Infection – Inflicts 3,900 – four,100 harm per second and reduces healing received by 50%. Creates a little bit ooze when it ends. Last 12 secs.

2. Ooze Flood – Inflicts five,363 – five,637 harm per second and reduces movement speed by 10% per stack. Last five secs.

3. Slime Spray – Inflicts 11,875 – 13,125 nature damage per second. Last 5 secs.

4. Vile Gas – Inflicts four,875 – five,125 harm every two seconds. Causes infected celebration members to vomit and damage other nearby celebration members for about 4,000 points. Final six sec.

5. Little Ooze:- Sticky Ooze – Inflicts two,925 – three,075 harm per second, reduces movement speed by 50%.
– Weak Radiating Ooze – Inflicts three,413 – three,587 damage just about every 2 seconds, merges little oozes with massive ooze.

6. Significant Ooze:- Sticky Ooze – Inflicts two,925 – three,075 harm per second, reduces movement speed by 50%.
– Radiating Ooze – Inflicts 2,438 – 2,562 damage, merges large ooze with small oozes.- Unstable Ooze – Increases damage dealt by 20%, stacks up 10 occasions.
– Unstable Ooze Explosion – Inflicts 14625 – 15375 damage, six-yard radius.

Tactic:

Here it is possible to use begin position like Festergut encounter only crucial prior to the fight starts you assign some players who will spread out about Rotface. Relating to the lineup, you don’t have to account for extremely much. The only critical issue would be to have sufficient players, at the very least 8, who can position themselves outdoors in the circle. These players are needed for Vile Gas to not be cast on melees. Even though Festergut’s Vile Gas was not a huge trouble since Inoculated reduces many the harm from it, right here is a lot a lot critical usually do not spread Vile Gas in the raid since it does truly huge harm and for healers will probably be just about impossible to overheal it. Several seconds right after the pull you instantaneously use Bloodlust or Heroism. At the begin in the fight, you are able to deal damage without having impairment considering the fact that there are not any oozes or green zones but, which tends to make it the optimal moment for Bloodlust or Heroism. Use two tanks for this fight. One tank stays on Rotface the whole time, though the other breaks off to choose up the small ooze, which can be cast periodically all through the fight against Rotface.

Keep Rotface inside the center of the area and have your second tank kite the oozes about him. Little oozes spawn each time Mutated Infection ends, and they spawn from the place of your raid member affected by Mutated Infection. When the first tiny ooze spawns, whoever it spawns from may have to kite it about till a second little ooze forms. That is definitely unless your Off-tank can abruptly pull the small ooze’s aggro off the raid member it spawned from, but this really is really difficult to complete for the reason that they hold a huge volume of aggro at the spawning. Following a second small ooze is formed, bring the two with each other and get them to merge. It could easily be performed by the raid member taking the newest ooze over to where the other ooze is getting kited. The healers ought to then cleanse the raid member when he’s close to the other ooze or simply to wait till Mutated Infection ends and also the Ooze shows itself. This may result in the two to merge and will unquestionably let your ooze tank to choose up the massive ooze. Then he just keeps tanking the significant ooze about the circle.

The huge ooze will explode soon after 5 little oozes have come collectively, so healers ought to watch for this to maintain the tank and raid alive, as well as the Off-Tank really should retain it away with the rest on the raid. Often Off-Tank inevitably need to run by way of Ooze Flood pools. Possess a paladin cast Hand of Freedom on him (because the Off-Tank will not be paladin) so you won’t be slowed when crossing them. In addition, take care not to kite the oozes through other players. DPS have four seconds to run from the ooze if they happen to become close to it when it is about to explode. Remain out of Ooze Flood, which is essentially the green areas around the floor and move quickly if you keep in it due to the fact in five secs you will gain 100% lessen of movement speed. The room is flooded periodically with it, that will kill you slowly if you’re standing in it and additional shortens the playing field.

Anytime Rotface turns his head, run away straight away to prevent Slime Spray. It’s pretty clear appropriate just before he utilizes this ability, so just watch for the head turn and run if you are in front of the path he turned his head. Additionally, you need to watch out for the explosions of your big oozes, not surprisingly, and locate a secure spot in time to avoid the modest ooze grenades as usual. Before operating back to your old position once again it’s important to check if Vile Gas will probably be cast quickly. If that is the case never just run back in melee variety, but keep the distance and wait for a second to see who will probably be the Vile Gas target, so it won’t be carried to melee by any suggests. The healers are very good usually do not stand inside the melees directly, but on the side of the boss and max closed to the middle as you can to have the range more than all raid members constantly. Also, paladins can use their Divine Shield and Hand of Sacrifice to save some member during Unstable Ooze Explosion.

Southampton sack Mauricio Pellegrino as manager after less than a year – collectionfifatips.com

The FC guys answer your tweets on how David Silva stacks up with the best players in the Prem, if Barca can go unbeaten in La Liga and the leading candidates to replace Mauricio Pellegrino.

Southampton have sacked Mauricio Pellegrino as manager, the Premier League club announced on Monday.

Pellegrino was hired on a three-year deal in June of 2017 after Claude Puel was let go at the club. He had previously been at Alaves.

Saints were beaten 3-0 at Newcastle on Saturday and lie just one place and one point above the relegation zone.

Southampton have won just one of their last 17 league matches — against bottom club West Brom — with this weekend’s defeat proving to be the final straw.


Assistant manager Carlos Compagnucci and assistant first-team coach Xavier Tamarit have also parted company with the south coast club.

A Southampton statement read: “We would like to place on record our thanks to Mauricio, Carlos and Xavier for their efforts during their time with Southampton, and wish them well for the future.

“The club will look to appoint a new management team as soon as possible, with the search for a replacement already under way.”

Saints will be hoping to appoint Pellegrino’s successor quickly, with an FA Cup quarter-final at Wigan looming on Sunday.

They then face a crunch clash with relegation rivals West Ham at the London Stadium on March 31.

Former Hull and Watford boss Marco Silva has been installed as the favourite for the vacancy with bookmakers.

Pellegrino, 46, played for Barcelona, Valencia and Liverpool as a player, while his coaching career has included stints in charge of Valencia, Estudiantes and Independiente.

Press Association contributed to this report.

collectionfifatips | Players from Other Sports That We Want to See in FIFA

Usain Bolt FIFA

Usain Bolt FIFA

It’s no secret that Usain Bolt fancies himself as a bit of a footballer. And the fact that he has secured himself a trial at Borussia Dortmund this coming March proves just how right the developers of FIFA 18 were to put him in the game. But it got us thinking; are there players from other sports that we want to see on FIFA? Of course, there are.

Head over to the NBA, and you can take your pick of any major player there. Hand him the goalkeeper jersey, and you’re safe as houses, right? Well, in theory, yes, but remember, there’s a lot more to goalkeeping that height. You also need to be good with your feet, and Joel Embiid of the Philadelphia 76ers has the skills. He’s played football all his life and was at the Champions League Final last season. And at seven feet, no one is chipping him.

The Rugby Union has some fast players, but there are few that can claim to be faster than Usain Bolt himself. And one of those few is England player Jonny May, who recorded an incredible 10.49 meters per second in a recent speed test over 40 meters. That speed would see him break the world 100-meter record. Six Nations’ odds have England as the favorites for the championship, and with May in the team, you can understand why. This guy is not only as fast as Bolt, but he’s powerfully built and tall. Defenders would bounce off him. If Didier Drogba were as fast as Usain Bolt, his name would be Jonny May.

Back to the States, we go to the NFL. We’re thinking a strong center-half in the mold of Razor Ruddock, but perhaps in slightly better condition. A tight end in the NFL would do the job nicely, and Rob Gronkowski is the best there is. He’s big, he’s strong and he’s mobile. No light-on-his-feet Messi is getting past the Gronk, and he’d eat Neymar for breakfast.

Now you may not know this, but there are quite a few tennis players who are quick on their feet. Nadal and Djokovic are notorious for indulging in soccer tennis at exhibition matches while Federer allegedly had to choose either soccer or tennis as his chosen sport. Apparently, he was that good at both. We’d like to see Nadal on the pitch though; he’s got that fiery temper that would make him a good character who might earn himself the odd red card.

For the pure comedic value of it, we’d love to see just about any WWE wrestler on the pitch. Now wrestling and soccer have crossed paths before. Stuart Tomlinson played between the sticks for Port Vale and Burton Albion before signing up as a pro wrestler. He’s back playing for Altrincham now, so he might not get into FIFA anytime soon. So, who would we want to see? The Rock, John Cena, The Undertaker? Doesn’t really matter who, this would be totally worth it just for a laugh.

So, what about the other sports? Darts, snooker, golf? Who are the stars from other sports that you’d most like to see in FIFA 19? Of all those we mentioned above, we reckon Jonny May would be the most successful, although Nadal just might push him for a place in the matchday squad.
