first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on September 3, 2016 at 2:35 pm Contact Charlie: csdistur@syr.edu | @charliedisturco As the clock approached 67 minutes, it seemed Syracuse was destined to be upset. The defending national champions trailed Liberty by one despite outshooting the latter, 18-8. But with 67:32 gone in the game, Lies Lagerweij finally managed to put the Orange on the board for just the second time. The score tied the game and stayed that way until, in overtime, Lagerweij scored yet again, this time putting the Orange ahead by one.The two goals by Lagerweij within a little over five minutes were the deciding factor in No. 2 Syracuse’s (3-0) 3-2 win over No. 13 Liberty (0-3).While the game was close, Syracuse dominated on the offensive end, taking a total of 22 shots, just 14 landing on goal. Liberty on the other hand, was extremely accurate, as all eight shots taken were on goal.The Orange also took 10 corners as opposed to the Flames’ three. But, with each opportunity Syracuse had, Liberty goalie Allison Schaefer was there to stop it.Throughout the first half, the Orange kept Liberty quiet, not allowing a single shot on goal. In the second half, Liberty put eight on goal, including both its goals in the game. Syracuse still outshot the opposition, 13-8, in the second half but struggled to make a major offensive impact.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textOther than Lagerweij’s three shots – and two goals – the rest of the team was extremely active. There were four other SU players with three shots. Laura Hurff, who took three shots, was the other player that scored for the team.The Orange was able to escape an upset scare and can extend its three-game win streak on Sunday, Sept. 4 at 1 p.m. against Hofstra.

Could elements of ‘Battlefield 6’ be free?After Activision took the leap and released the free to play “Call of Duty: Warzone” to positive reception, it’s now up to other legacy FPS studios such as EA DICE to decide whether to follow the trend or stick with what’s worked in the past. The benefit of free Battle Royale modes for companies is the continued cash flow of DLC cosmetics. Activision has also done a good job using “Warzone” to promote its paid “Call of Duty: Modern Warfare” title.There is not yet any indication one way or the other what EA DICE will do here.When will ‘Battlefield 5’ updates stop?In a recent announcement, EA DICE said the final major update for “Battlefield V” will come in June. It will continue to address bugs, though, and still provide attention to the title for the forseeable future. Attention, then, will turn to the next iteration for the franchise, which will be critical in keeping EA DICE afloat in the FPS space. “Battlefield V” is viewed as a sales disappointment, and the FPS genre has evolved significantly since its release, particularly in terms of Battle Royale popularity.Still, the devout following of the game among hardcore fans gives it hope for a strong rebound, especially with the imminent release of next-gen consoles potentially playing up its renowned aesthetics.MORE: What’s new in “Call of Duty: Warzone” updateDetails remain sparse for Battlefield 6, but we do have some hints of what’s to come.Here is the latest on Battlefield 6, as well as the implications of the new game on Battlefield V:When is the ‘Battlefield 6’ release date?EA DICE has confirmed the game will be released in 2021, and we can narrow it down further than that based on prior reports. According to Niko Partners, it will be shipped sometime after April 1.”Battlefield V” was a November release, putting it up against other prominent FPS titles and perhaps harming its sales numbers. As a result, it’s possible (though not yet reported) that EA DICE will select a different part of the year, such as summer or earlier in the fall, to put it on the market.It’s unclear whether the coronavirus pandemic will have an impact on the development timeline.What details are known about ‘Battlefield 6’?EA DICE has kept mum on details of the game, but that hasn’t stopped fans from speculating what could be ahead.Among those fan-driven ideas: A greater focus on multiplayer over campaign, the introduction of Battle Royale and a more modern or futuristic era setting. While “Battlefield” has long been popular because of its differences from other FPS titles, it may feel pressure from competitors to mimick certain aspects of breakout games.One thing EA has discussed is the expanded capabilities provided by the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X.”You should assume the power of those consoles is much more than existing consoles,” said Blake Jorgenson, the CEO and CFO of EA, on an earnings call earlier this year. “We can do a lot more. You will start to see things over the next couple of years that will blow people’s minds.”last_img read more
