Why is GTA 6 trending? Rockstar confuses everyone with announcements

A highly-anticipated announcement for the next Grand Theft Auto Online update created a ton of commotion among fans who desperately wanted any information on GTA 6, making the unannounced sequel to trend without a cause.

Wishful thinking tells us Rockstar is working on the sixth main entry for their legendary franchise. However, there still hasn’t been any official news on GTA 6, something that the community feels can come any day now.

Well on November 19, aside from the news that all Land Races will yield Triple Rewards, the company also released a cryptic video that paints Los Santos in a completely new light.

Titled ‘El Rubio Dossier,’ the 10-second clip contains little information to go off of, other than the lifeless body of John Doe which could play into whatever the devs have planned next.

While there’s plenty of reason to get hyped if you’re a GTA Online player, it seems like fans of the general franchise took the meaning of the video out of context and momentarily ran with it as being the first teaser for 6.

It’s not that hard to see why either. Rockstar is planning the first map expansion for the game in GTA 5’s seven-year lifespan.

The map that has entertained and concealed all of the havoc in GTA will finally be getting some new features to keep the chaos going.

If that wasn’t enough, a new heist will also be coming along for the major winter update for the game. So there doesn’t seem to be a lack of content for the 2013 title, at least as this holiday season is concerned.

However, for those that have been itching for any sign of the next installment in the GTA series, seeing the game trend after the November 19 announcements led from one thing to another.

It only took a few hours after that to escalate the GTA 6 hype for the casual observer, which immediately turned into regret after finding out there was no actual news on the sequel.

If there ever is hard (official) evidence on the Grand Theft Auto 6 release date or info around it, you can be sure to find it on @GTA_Intel and here on Dexerto.

Amumu has risen up as the dominant jungler after the League of Legends Season 11 item rework. He was targeted in League patch 10.24, but the changes didn’t go far enough, with Riot shipping out a big hotfix on November 26.

Amumu was the big winner of the League of Legends Season 11 changes. While his winrate shot up on the Patch 10.22 thanks to a change to his ultimate, the new items on Patch 10.23 only cemented his place at the top of the jungler power rankings.

In the space of a month, he jumped from 48.88% win rate to 57.08%, according to stats site op.gg. His pick rate also went up tenfold, from 1.12% to 17.98%.

Amumu has run away as the top jungler in League Season 11, but Riot are reining him in.

Given his outdated kit, it’s a small miracle the Sad Mummy has found his way back into the meta after years of being obsolete. Between Sunfire Aegis, Demonic Embrace, and Abyssal Mask though, it’s given Amumu a new lease on life.

However, Riot believes they’ve given him a bit too much of a leash to work with. After a small set of nerfs to begin with on League patch 10.24, they’ve gone one step further with an even bigger set of changes in a November 26 hotfix.

The hotfix includes a nerf to Amumu’s mana per level, the base damage on his E, as well as his ultimate stun duration. The three changes in tandem are designed to make Amumu less of a kill threat, having to conserve his resources for when the time is right.

“Amumu is still looking like a big outlier after the patch, overperforming other tanks and everyone else,” lead gameplay designer Mark Yetter said on Twitter.

Riot are hoping the changes bring Amumu in line with other tanks, who were nerfed hard via Sunfire Aegis, Frostfire Gauntlet, and Turbo Chemtank.

They’ll be keeping their eyes on the Sad Mummy until the next update, League patch 10.25, which is expected to drop on December 9.

The final update of the Season 10 cycle is currently set to include a bunch of new cosmetics, overhauls to Pantheon and Anivia, and more.
