The two inventory item slots for throwables are no longer fixed as grenade and smoke grenades, players can now mouse-drag and equip different throwable items onto the throwable item slots. The default keybind for swapping out throwable items is "5" After taking out a throwable, the default left-mouse-button is used to throw the throwable equipped on the left slot, and the default right-mouse-button is used to throw the throwable equipped on the right slot https://steamcdn-a.akamaihd.net/steamcommunity/public/images/clans/31255098/e5b8ac7a2bda374826db4c21cd2904a64a5b511a.gif Weapon Inspection Added the "Inspect Weapon" option in game settings Under TPP/FPP perspective, use the Inspect Weapon keybind (the default keybind is “O”) to inspect weapons under FPP perspective.

Since the release of the previous issue's "Developer Face-to-face," we have been gradually releasing the contents we brought up, such as Gunplay improvements, Anti-aliasing improvements, the Weapon Skin system, the AK-15, weapon balance changes, traversal equipment balance changes, the Thailand Invitational, and more! We have also received lots of great feedback and suggestions during this time, and we're going through all of them carefully! As usual, we will keep actively communicating with you guys, be as transparent as we can, and make the game better with your help! Many of you have expressed your thoughts about the direction of ROE in the future, well, we have a lot of awesome stuff coming, and we can’t wait to share them with you. Let’s jump into it! I. Optimization As mentioned in the previous announcement, we are fully committed to the development of DX12 related upgrades and the 64-bit client. The former is expected to bring an overall improvement in game performance, while the latter can solve the client crashes caused by insufficient memory. Now, our devs have already achieved some initial results, and the 64-bit client should be released very soon. With the 64-bit client, some common client issues will be fundamentally solved, effectively improving your game experience. We will be posting announcements to walk through the details about the 64-bit client later through our official platforms. Also, the DX12 related development is still in progress. Unfortunately, we don't have too much to reveal this time around, but we will communicate with you as soon as we can. II. Adventurer Season 3 The Adventurer Season 2 is ending in just two weeks! Last time, we announced the concept design art for one of the new Adventurer Character in S3, which led to a lot of discussions within the community. However, other than the "Space Captain," there will be two more characters that are young in age. On top of that, we will be making some exciting changes in terms of combat in season 3! Stay tuned, people! III. About the new "Sharpen" setting At present, the sharpen setting has been added and experienced by the majority of players, and we want to give you some additional info on it: We added this setting because we want to make sure that each player can have the ability to adjust the graphics to their own preferences. The default setting of sharpen is “Low”, that is also our recommended option out of the three sharpening levels. In general, each person perceives sharpening in a very different way, so for some players, the graphic clarity of “Low” sharpening might not be as satisfying to their eyes compared to the other two options, but using “Low” sharpening is less likely to cause eye strain, and the overall graphic smoothness will be better. For players that want to add more clarity to the graphics, we suggest using the “Standard” or “High” sharpening option. Since we are not using the TAA technology for “Low” Anti-aliasing, the graphic...Thailand Invitational- Introducing the EU team: Team Force!Mar 15, 2019 - Community AnnouncementsHi everyone!

Team Force finished the second half of the ROECL Season 1 with 1035 points which landed them a second-place finish. The team also performed outstandingly in the ROECL French Open, securing a second-place finish with 525 points. Week after week, Team Force has proven its ability to make aggressive, calculated, and tactical plays in various tournaments. Unlike many other EU teams that focuses on surviving until the late game in order to obtain placement points, Team Force utilizes their early game aggression to provide them the points needed to maintain at the top of the leaderboards. Aside from standing out as a dominate team competitively, the Team Force roster is known for their humble attitude. Each member of the team always shows a professional and respectful attitude toward their competitors, whether they win or lose an event. https://steamcdn-a.akamaihd.net/steamcommunity/public/images/clans/31255098/d854a4ec66026d22e494af2a959c62f66fdcddf2.jpg Nickname(IGN): elastiXx First name: Levitte Nationality: France Age: 27 Hours in ROE: 500+ Gaming background: I started on console (PlayStation) then switched to PC gaming, I have a lot of experience in eSports competitions (CS 1.6, Rocket League, BF4, BF3, PUBG) and now I’m focusing on ROE!

The current No Recoil lineup was assembled very recently, it consists the best players from various other CIS teams in the past, which dominated the RUROE tournaments and events, often placing at 1st and 2nd, and performed remarkably in the ROECL Season 1 leaderboard.

None of the players on the No Recoil team has LAN tournament experience, but participating in the Thailand Invitational will be a big step forward for this emerging and promising team. https://steamcdn-a.akamaihd.net/steamcommunity/public/images/clans/31255098/2bbe4dc3b5f9c3c8d38131e23d102eb15f9b4cc8.jpg Nickname(IGN): piterPENN First name: Igor Nationality: Russia Age: 31 Hours in ROE: 700+ hours Gaming background: I have been gaming since I was a kid.

Here are the full details: Settings Added a new option for Anti-aliasing: “Sharpen”, players can now select from the three preset options: Low, Medium, and High to adjust the sharpening levels while using the “Standard” and “High” Anti-aliasing Some additional info about this new setting: The default setting sharpen is “Low”, that is also our recommended option out of the three sharpening levels. In general, each person perceives sharpening in a very different way, so for some players, the graphic clarity of “Low” sharpening might not be as satisfying to their eyes compared to the other two options, but using “Low” sharpening is less likely to cause eye strain, and the overall graphic smoothness will be better For players that wants to add more clarity to the graphics, we suggest using the “Standard” or “High” sharpening option. Also, the “High” sharpening option is the default parameters we used in the last patch Since we are not using the TAA technology for “Low” Anti-aliasing, the graphics does not need extra sharpening, so the sharpen option will not be available for it TAA Anti-aliasing is currently the best Anti-aliasing technology for ROE in terms of overall effects and efficiency, is can solve flickering and jagged edges relatively well, and it has an extremely low graphics card usage. It is also common practice in the industry to use post-processing effects such as sharpening to add clarity to the graphics when using TAA. Therefore, we decided to provide multiple sharpening settings for you guys, hopefully everyone can try it out and select the best looking sharpening option that suits you the best Thanks for playing, ROE DEV TeamThailand Invitational- Introducing the EU team: Stellar Four!Mar 13, 2019 - Community AnnouncementsHi everyone!

First, we want to express our sincerest apologies to all the players affected by this change. Although this change was an emergency measure that we were forced to take, and it has shown to be effective, but we failed to communicate and inform you guys about this change beforehand, we also understand that directly shutting down matchmaking modes is only a temporary solution to this issue. Therefore, we decided to reopen Solo matchmaking on NA in a time-limited manner. Here's the specific time period: Every day at 7PM - 9PM Pacific Time (0200 - 0400 UTC) We know that this is still only a temporary solution, but please rest assured that we will continue to analyze our data, discuss the feasibility of better options and strategies, closely monitor your feedback; communicate with you transparently, and try our best to completely reopen Solo and Duo matchmaking on NA as soon as possible. Thank you so much for your patience, understanding, and support. -ROE DEV TeamOnly One Battle Royale Game in 2018 Had Its Player Base Increase on SteamJan 22, 2019 - GitHypThere were many battle royale games that debuted in 2018, but just like the rules of the genre, only one was able to retain its players and see an actual growth in its player base on Steam last year.

PlayerUnknown's Battleground (-68% players)

Steam’s most popular BR game, PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, started 2018 at an all-time high of 1.66 million concurrent players in January. But with the rise of Fortnite, PUBG saw a constant decline in players month-over-month, ending 2018 with an average of only 526k ccp.

Hunt: Showdown (-86% players)

Hunt: Showdown, a hybrid monster-hunting battle royale game from the developers of the Crysis series, made its long-awaited debut in 2018 with a rather weak launch of only 14k peak players. The game's technical issues resulted in players searching elsewhere on Steam for new BR games and Hunt ending the year just barely in Steam’s top 200 with only 2k players online.

Radical Heights (-100% players)

After Lawbreakers became one of the biggest flops of 2017, the developers at Boss Key tried to salvage their studio by releasing their own cartoony early access BR game that they hoped would draw the Fornite crowd. But just like LawbreakersRadical Heights had a weak launch of only 12k peak players and saw its player base plummet by 82% in the first 2 weeks, resulting in the closure of the studio.

Cuisine Royale (-96% players)

The gimmicky Cuisine Royale, which replaces realistic armor with pots and pans, did just as well as Radical Heights debuting with a peak of 12k players. And although it has done better in the long run, CR's average of only 500 players online put it outside of Steam’s top 300 at the end of 2018.

Totally Accurate Battlegrounds (-99% players)

Totally Accurate Battlegrounds made headlines for being a free-to-play parody of PUBG that actually turned into the first big launch for a BR game on Steam since PUBG took over. Yet, TABG's unpolished appeal quickly wore off and its player base declined from a peak of 29k concurrent players to now at times under 100 players online.

Realm Royale (-96% players)

Realm Royale released the same week as TABG in June and seemed to be the first serious BR game on Steam in 2018 with a peak just over 100k concurrent players. But it too saw a massive dropoff of 96% of its player base, now just barely hovering around Steam’s top 100 games with an average of 4k players online.

SCUM (-97% players)

Devolver Digital’s SCUM became one of the biggest BR games of the year when the it enticed 68k new players by allowing them to relieve themselves in-game, get fat, and even eat other players. But those crazy features alone weren’t enough to keep its player base from also degrading down to an average of only 2k players online by the end of the year.

H1Z1 (-85% players)

The previous king of the BR genre (before PUBG and Fortnite took over), had another bad year trying to make a comeback. Once peaking at 150k concurrent players on Steam, H1Z1 had a brief moment in 2018 where it seemed like exiting Early Access, going free-to-play, and adding a new car-based “Auto Royale” mode could turn things around with a peak of 42k concurrent players… but its gains were short lived and the former king ended 2018 with an average of only 1.7k players online.

Failed Spin-Offs and Sequels

Other popular franchises failed at trying BR spin-offs such as Battlerite Royale and Dying Light: Bad Blood. And if not for The Culling 2 dropping to a single player online only 2 days after release, Bad Blood would have been considered the biggest BR bomb of the year with a peak of only 455 ccp -- a a shockingly low launch compared to 2015’s hit Dying Light, which debuted with 45k players and still pulls in peaks of 7k players at times.

Ring of Elysium (+20% players)

The only battle royale game that managed to retain its large player base in 2018 was Ring of Elysium. Succeeding where Radical Heights failed, the developers at Tencent (who are also behind both PUBG and Fortnite) were able to draw in the BR crowd with an “extreme” gimmick that introduced snowboards and later BMX bikes into their shooter. Although RoE didn’t have the biggest launch of 2018 and even saw a significant dip in its player base a month after launching, the game was able to bounce back and top its initial numbers with a peak of 63k players in December. And while Ring of Elysium is still relatively new compared to other BR games, it was the only one which was able to retain its player base and stay in Steam’s top 25 most played games to end 2018.
