Apex Legends is slipping quite considerably, at least in terms of revenue, according to new figures for April, indicating that the game only made a fraction of the amount it did during the first month.According to SuperData, a gaming-focused analytics firm (and Nielson company), in April, Apex Legends managed to make $24 million, which is down ‘significantly’ for the second month running.Indeed, that figure is only just over a quarter of what the battle royale shooter made in its launch month, where it racked up $92 million in revenue and SuperData praised it as the best launch of a free-to-play game ever.The drop in revenue also means that Apex Legends is no longer in the top rankings of PC and console games as compiled by the analytics company.So in short, on the fiscal front, things aren’t looking so peachy, at least going by this report (and that’s all we can go by at the moment).That said, we knew that the huge momentum generated by the surprise launch – and the clever backing EA secured from major Twitch streamers – was never going to last.

A new lawsuit filed against Faze Clan, a popular e-sports organization and YouTube network, by one of the internet’s most popular personalities is shaping up to be a milestone moment for online content creators.But a new lawsuit filed by Tenney’s lawyers today alleges that his employer, Faze Clan, has taken financial advantage of him by way of an exploitative contract and unlawful behavior on behalf of Faze’s management.The lawsuit states that Faze has deprived Tenney of certain business opportunities, failed to pay the Fortnite player his share of brand deal revenue, and grossly undercut his earnings by taking up to 80 percent his earnings in some situations.The suit also argues that Faze is operating in violation of Californian law, specifically the Talent Agency Act, by essentially operating as a talent agency without a proper license or abiding by the necessary regulation.“Because the esports industry is so new, there is little to no regulation or oversight,” attorney Bryan Freedman writes in the complaint.Tenney first signed the contract, referred to within the court document as a “Gamer Agreement,” in April 2018 when he was 20 years old.

Game live-streaming platform Huya saw surging total revenues and gross profit in the first quarter of 2019, driven primarily by a substantial year-on-year increase in the number of paying users.Total net revenues increased by 93% year-on-year, reaching RMB 1.63 billion ($243 million).Around 95% of net revenues came from the company’s livestreaming business, which grew by 95.8% year-on-year.According to Huya, the growth was powered primarily by increases in the number of paying users and their average spending.The number paying users reached 5.4 million, representing a 57.4% year-on-year increase, of which more than 70% are mobile users, CFO Sha Dachuan said.However, they still account for just around 4% of the platform’s average MAUs, which reached 123.8 million in the first quarter of 2019.
In the two months since a man brutally attacked Muslims in Christchurch, New Zealand, and livestreamed his shootings on Facebook, the social media company has faced scrutiny and pressure from advocates and politicians to stop the spread of violent and hateful content.Immediately after the attack, New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern told Parliament, “We cannot simply sit back and accept that these platforms just exist and what is said is not the responsibility of the place where they are published.”Australia parliament then passed legislation that could threaten imprisonment for tech executives who allow violent content on their platforms.That same week, Zuckerberg, in an ABC interview, wouldn’t commit to tweaking Facebook’s livestreaming in the wake of the attack, leading New Zealand privacy commissioner John Edwards to condemn the company in a series of tweets.They are morally bankrupt pathological liars who enable genocide (Myanmar), facilitate foreign undermining of democratic institutions,” Edwards tweeted.“[They] allow the live streaming of suicides, rapes, and murders, continue to host and publish the mosque attack video, allow advertisers to target ‘Jew haters’ and other hateful market segments, and refuse to accept any responsibility for any content or harm.”
The move comes in response to the live broadcast of the terrorist attack in Christchurch, New Zealand.The social media platform broadcast the incident for 29 minutes, with around 200 people viewing the content, before it was cut.After heavy criticism, Facebook needed to act in an attempt to prevent a repeat of such a broadcast.“Following the horrific terrorist attacks in New Zealand, we’ve been reviewing what more we can do to limit our services from being used to cause harm or spread hate,” said Guy Rosen, VP Integrity at Facebook.“As a direct result, starting today, people who have broken certain rules on Facebook – including our Dangerous Organizations and Individuals policy – will be restricted from using Facebook Live.”Although some might suggest this is a potential limitation of free speech principles, Facebook has had to do something about the grey areas.

An initiative called the Christchurch Call, led by the governments of New Zealand and France, calls on other world leaders and tech giants to be more vigilant in policing live streams on social media platforms.While the United States government has refused to endorse the effort, Facebook is trying to do its part.Two months after the horrific mass shootings at two Christchurch mosques that left 50 people dead, Facebook has imposed what it calls a “one strike policy” that will determine who can use its live-streaming platform.According to the announcement made on its blog, the social media giant will ban any user who has broken its rules from using Facebook Live for a set period of time.“From now on, anyone who violates our most serious policies will be restricted from using Live for set periods of time – for example 30 days – starting on their first offense.For instance, someone who shares a link to a statement from a terrorist group with no context will now be immediately blocked from using Live for a set period of time,” explains Facebook’s vice president of integrity Guy Rosen.
