Hello everyone,

It has been a bit more than a week now since the release and we've been reading into the feedback and comments you have been providing us since then. Based upon this feedback we are actively working on a new update for ROTR that should be in your hands before the end of this month. We're also working on making some tutorial videos for those who have trouble installing and playing the game although we can't say exactly when these will be finished but as soon as they are, you will be notified via your media of choice.

Some of the changes for this update are:

-Better connection experience with SWR.net
-IP addresses should no longer cause conflicts while connecting to SWR.net
-People will no longer get randomly banned from SWR.net
-Some balance and gameplay changes (details will become available with the patch)


Two things we can however tell and show you about these changes:


Shmel Troopers proved to be a bit too good in certain early game scenarios so they will receive a nerf to their base weapon. In turn, they will now also benefit from the "Advanced Infantry Munitions" upgrade which will give them a new launcher which will boost their attack power.


Warhounds, although not being particularly unbalanced or weak in any situation, had a rather low survivability in the later game. To maintain their utility, Warhounds now benefit from the "Armor Skirts" upgrade.

As always, we would like to remind all of you out there that there will be another official live stream this Sunday.
Keep in mind however that unlike before we will now be streaming in the evenings rather than the afternoon.



Countdown until the stream starts

Will new voice-sets be included as well? There were a few (besides the one I was working on) that I thought were getting reworked or added (like for one of the Venom suits I think).

The warhound uses its machinegun only when its mobile, not when its deployed. When its deployed it only uses the mortar, Is that intended or a bug?

Intended.
It's also much more fragile while not digged in, and can't be digged in while on the move. Also intended.

Another reason to love the Warhound!
By the way, anyone has a bigger, standalone picture of the Schock Trooper's bolter?

Personally, I think all ECA vehicles should benefit from side skirts, their survivability outside of the Manticore protocol is laughable. (Specifically the Leopard/Gepard)

ECA vehicles armor is not bad.

Although I agree that side skirt armor should affect Leopards too.

I also support the idea of Armor Skirts for the Leopards, but I think the coloration on the Warhound's skirts should be adjusted slightly. The shade of blue on the skirts is a little darker than the shade on the Warhound itself.

Either way, I'm looking forward to seeing what other changes this patch will bring. :3

Actually if that many units would get armor skirts the upgrade would have to be drastically increased in price and it would also completely overkill the NANO Shock obsorber upgrade to ridiculous levels so that's not really something i consider a good idea.

Hmmm...The US already get's something like that. (Composite Armor, Hold the Line Plan and Battle Drone combo) Maybe decrease the heal rate of the nano field from the Manticore?

But these require a whole protocol being researched, thus it takes a lot of time to get them eventually. To balance them further they could cost money to install.
