A Monster Hunter Dragalia Lost Rathalos Event Will Arrive in January 2020 – Siliconera



The Dragalia Lost countdown ended, and it revealed the next crossover event, lots of freebies, the New Year’s event, new shop items, and The Agito Uprising. The most exciting part was undoubtedly the reveal of the Monster Hunter Dragalia Lost crossover.

This Monster Hunter Dragalia Lost event will be held at the end of January 2020. Details about it were scarce, but one familiar face will show up. Rathalos is on the way! People who participate will be able to acquire this new dragon.

This is the second Cygames and Capcom collaboration for the game. The Dragalia Lost Mega Man event was held in November 2019. It allowed people to recruit Mega Man as a playable party member for participating in the event, and you could also get weapons for your characters that functioned like his buster gun.

In addition to the Monster Hunter collaboration reveal, a number of other special events, additions, and giveaways were detailed. The Agito Uprising Volk’s Wrath event will begin on December 25, 2019. It will be an extremely challenging fight and let people face Volk. Defeating him gives you materials that can be used to forge six-star weapons. Cleo’s A Sweeping Retrospective will be held December 25th-30th, giving people a chance to earn items like lucky letters and stickers for completing quests. The lucky letters are given out here and for logging in. You can use these during a December 31th through January 13th raffle period to get rewards, and collecting 10 means at least one will have a fourth tier reward or higher.

There will also be a sixth mana circle, known as a mana spiral, for Alain, Aoi, Aurien, Botan, Cassandra, Euden, Ezelith, Joe, Karl, Naveed, Renelle, and Xania on December 25th. The Prize Showcase summon, which gives an item as a bonus prize, will run from December 25th-30th too. (Tenfold Summons will give at least a bronze prize.)

The 2020 New Year’s event will be called New Year’s Tidings: A Clawful Caper. The new confirmed adventurers are Chitose, Hanabusa, Nobunaga, and Mitsuhide. The new dragon is Daikokuten. It will be accompanied by a Platinum Showcases. One will guarantee you a five star adventurer, while the other will guarantee you a five-star dragon. Both will run December 30th through January 13th and allow you to pull three times on them.

As for the giveaways, people will have multiple free Dragalia Lost items to collect as the year ends. Between December 25th and January 2nd, people can perform one free tenfold summon each day. Notte also is sending out a Dragonyule present of 500 Wyrmite, 30,000 Eldwater, and three Champion’s Testaments to all players. Then, starting on December 31st through January 22nd, there will be a New Year’s Special Bonus login event. This gives you a Tenfold Summon Voucher on day one, 10 Exquisite Honey on day two, ten Blessed Ethon Ashes on day three, 400 Wyrmite on day four, 10 Exquisite Honey on day five, two Champion’s Testaments on day six, 400 Wyrmite on day seven, 10 Blessed Ethon Ashes on day eight, 400 Wyrmite on day nine, and a final Tenfold Summon Voucher on day ten.

Dragalia Lost is available for Android and Apple iOS devices.

EBay to sell South Korean unit for about $3.6 billion to Shinsegae, Naver



EBay will sell its South Korean business to retailer Shinsegae Group and e-commerce firm Naver for about 4 trillion won ($3.6 billion), local newspapers reported on Wednesday.

EBay Korea is the country’s third-largest e-commerce firm with market share of about 12.8% in 2020, according to Euromonitor. It operates the platforms Gmarket, Auction and G9.

Shinsegae, Naver and eBay Korea declined to comment.

Lotte Shopping had also been in the running, the Korea Economic Daily and other newspapers said, citing unnamed investment banking sources.

South Korea represents the world’s fourth largest e-commerce market. Driven by the coronavirus pandemic, e-commerce has soared to account for 35.8% of the retail market in 2020 compared with 28.6% in 2019, according to Euromonitor data.

Shinsegae and Naver formed a retail and e-commerce partnership in March by taking stakes worth 250 billion won in each other’s affiliates.

Canada launches long-awaited auction of 5G spectrum



Canada is set to begin a hotly anticipated auction of the mobile telecommunications bandwidth necessary for 5G rollout, one that was delayed more than a year by the pandemic.

The 3,500 MHz is a spectrum companies need to provide 5G, which requires more bandwidth to expand internet capabilities.The auction, initially scheduled for June 2020, is expected to take several weeks with Canadian government selling off 1,504 licenses in 172 service areas.

Smaller operators are going into the auction complaining that recent regulatory rulings have further tilted the scales in the favour of the country’s three biggest telecoms companies – BCE, Telus and Rogers Communications Inc – which together control around 90% of the market as a share of revenue.

Canadian mobile and internet consumers, meanwhile, have complained for years that their bills are among the world’s steepest. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s Liberal government has threatened to take action if the providers did not cut bills by 25%.

The last auction of the 600 MHz spectrum raised C$3.5 billion ($2.87 billion) for the government.

The companies have defended themselves, saying the prices they charge are falling.

Some 23 bidders including regional players such as Cogeco and Quebec’s Videotron are participating in the process. Shaw Communications did not apply to participate due to a $16 billion takeover bid from Rogers. Lawmakers and analysts have warned that market concentration will intensify if that acquisition proceeds.

In May, after Canada‘s telecoms regulator issued a ruling largely in favour of the big three on pricing for smaller companies’ access to broadband networks, internet service provider TekSavvy Inc withdrew from the auction, citing the decision.

Some experts say the government has been trying to level the playing field with its decision to set aside a proportion of spectrum in certain areas for smaller companies.

Gregory Taylor, a spectrum expert and associate professor at the University of Calgary, said he was pleased the government was auctioning off smaller geographic areas of coverage.

In previous auctions where the license covered whole provinces, “small providers could not participate because they could not hope to cover the range that was required in the license,” Taylor said.

Smaller geographic areas mean they have a better chance of fulfilling the requirements for the license, such as providing service to 90% of the population within five years of the issuance date.

The auction has no scheduled end date, although the federal ministry in charge of the spectrum auction has said winners would be announced within five days of bidding completion.
