Over the last decade, multiplayer online battle arena (MOBA) games such as League of Legends have skyrocketed into popularity due to their attractive social and competitive nature, which has greatly increased the need for sophisticated game player matchmaking technologies. Game Player Matchmaking (GPM), a powerful and flexible game player matchmaking service that supports multiple algorithms, helps you to easily write a script to efficiently and appropriately match players and teams for a variety of games without needing to consider complex logic. GPM can also automatically deliver matchmaking results to your hosted game server to start battles and can send notifications during the matchmaking process.
2020-12MediaConnect helps you quickly and reliably transfer video streaming media
In the 2020 League of Legends Mid-Season Cup, 4 South Korean and 4 Chinese teams duked it out for the champion title and the accompanying prize money of $240,000 USD. Interestingly, unlike previous international League of Legends tournaments that were held in-person at a single location, the 2020 Mid-Season Cup was held online in both Seoul and Shanghai due to the COVID-19 pandemic, with production teams in both countries transmitting live match signals to each other in real time. This was made possible by Tencent Cloud MediaConnect’s ability to implement acceleration at the protocol layer through various protocols such as SRT, reducing long-distance transmission delays to a minimum and ensuring smooth and fair tournament gameplay.
2020-11Secrets Manager enables enterprises to quickly and easily manage secrets through their lifecycle
Imagine that you’re a developer and you created a custom application to retrieve information from a database. In the past, you had to embed the credentials, or the secret, for accessing the database directly in the application in plaintext. When it came time to rotate the secret, because the secret was hardcoded in the application, you had to invest significant time and effort to update and distribute the application—an especially tedious task that was prone to single points of failure if multiple applications shared the same secret. Fortunately, thanks to Tencent Cloud’s Secrets Manager (SSM), you can now quickly and easily manage, retrieve and store encrypted database credentials, API keys and other secrets.
