Early Access Patch Notes - 12.22.2018
December 22 - RingofElysiumROE
Dear players,

Welcome to the latest official patch notes for Ring of Elysium’s Early Access phase. Here’s the full details:

PLEASE NOTE:
Ring of Elysium’s live servers will go down for maintenance for approximately two hours at:
December 22nd, 16:00 to 18:00 PST (UTC -8)
December 23rd, 0:00 to 2:00 GMT (UTC +0)

During the maintenance period, the game will not be available and ongoing games will be interrupted directly. Please be prepared beforehand to avoid this issue. We apologize for any inconvenience caused.


New gamemode- From Dusk Till Dawn

In order to assure our players’ experience in the existing gamemode while we test and optimize this new gamemode in a progressive manner, we have decided to use a limited-time-only method to open and test From Dusk Till Dawn, this gamemode will be available for 3-time periods throughout the day (set in consideration for players in different regions)
This gamemode will be available every day at: 4:00-6:00, 12:00-14:00, 20:00-22:00 (PST)
During the test phase of this gamemode, the versions might be unstable and there might be some bugs that can occur, we sincerely appreciate your understanding and support. We'd also greatly appreciate any kind of suggestions and feedback from you at any time! Please send them to our official customer service E-mail: roe@tencent.com
Please note: This gamemode will become available after today's server maintenance

Gamemode play-rules:

In the dark night, Ymir surge in stages, players must strive to maintain their body temperature levels and survive until dawn rises at the end of the game (around 20 minutes), leading to a victory
To survive, players need to compete with other players to fight for a variety of resources, including weapons and equipment, fuel, food and so on
When Ymir surges, players need to start a campfire indoors and stay close to the fire to maintain their body temperature. The campfire needs fuel to keep burning, and food can be consumed to restore health and help to survive the cold
All resource locations will be shown on the map, and the positions of all players will also be revealed at certain times, players will need to flexibly adjust their tactics and strategies in order to survive until dawn
Please note: The keybind for consumable food items in this gamemode are default to unbound, players can go to the game settings and set their preferred keybinds if needed


Event related

“Christmas Carnival Week” raffle event
During the event period (from December 24th to December 31st, 23:59), players can log-in to the game every day to participate in the reward raffle. From three reward cards, choose one and claim your awesome reward! This event will last for 8 days, if players participate in the raffle for 7 days, they will be guaranteed to win the Lynn- Christmas Style! Hikage’s special style will also be included in the potential reward list, however, Gavin’s special style will be introduced in the upcoming New Year event very soon, stay tuned!


Battle Buddy missions

After the launch of our "Refer-A-Friend" system, we are also launching the correlated Battle Buddy missions! The referrer and referred players can play together as Duos and Squads to complete missions to obtain bonus XP and even a special player portrait!


Adventurer Characters

Added the Christmas exclusive Adventurer Character styles for Lynn, Gavin and Hikage, which can be obtained in our events coming very soon


Sounds

Optimized the gunfire sounds for Groza, Famas, G28, and Desert Eagle, bringing a more dynamic sound performance that is also pleasing to your ears
Slightly decreased the engine sound volume for players themselves while driving vehicles


Vehicles

Added lights for vehicles, the default keybind is H, players can set their own keybind through the game settings to turn on and turn off their vehicles’ lights


UI

Replaced the 16-grid format on the map to 64-grid
Optimized the icon design in the loading screen


Weekly Challenges

Changed the rule of week seven’s challenge- “Board the helicopter in 3 games in Duo/Squad mode” from must boarding the helicopter yourself to anyone on the team. If players leave the game early and a teammate boards the helicopter, that player will still get the progress completion for this challenge


Bug Fixes

Fixed a client crash caused by the physics system
Fixed an issue where going in/out of the aiming status will cause crosshair deviations in some cases
Fixed an issue where firing with the default weapon would not hit targets after joining a game after switching back to the default female character from Hikage

Fixed an issue where the Store interface would flicker for a split second after leaving a game and returning to the game lobby in some cases
Fixed the issue where certain vehicle spawn locations were too close to player spawn locations, causing the players to be eliminated by the vehicle after spawning on the map

A letter of apology about our release-time overlook for our new gamemode- From Dusk Till Dawn
DECEMBER 22 - RINGOFELYSIUMROE
Dear players,

On today's new update, we decided to delay the server maintenance period due to unforeseen technical problems in order to provide a more stable gaming experience for our players. However, we made a very serious mistake: we did not to realize that in the recent announcement we made about our new gamemode, we specifically stated that this gamemode will be released on December 22, and completely forgot about the issue of time zone differences.

Since we provide Ring of Elysium to players living in different time zones around the globe, we failed to do our jobs, which is to carefully make development plans, meet our deadlines, and notify all players as soon as possible when we make any changes.

After we posted our patch notes announcement (which was already too late). We noticed that a group of NA and EU players has already been waiting for hours because they wanted to play this new gamemode so badly, and eventually got an extremely disappointing response. This all happened solely due to our negligence.

Thus, we want to express our most sincere apologies for all the problems caused by our mistakes on this update. All members of the ROE Dev team have reflected on our mistakes profoundly. In our future updates and server maintenances, we will be more cautious to avoid similar situations from happening to the best of our ability.

We sincerely apologize again for the inconvenience we have caused!

Thank you,
ROE DEV Team
