    • Melee changes.

      Melee needs a serious rework. Quick attacks are absolute cancer. Attack speed needs to be reduced by at least a third. The ability to run circles around somebody while spamming fists or a knife is absolutely insane. This is the single biggest problem with melee. There is NO defense against it other than to simply hope your attacker misses, giving you what you hope is enough time to recover.

        • Turn down hero tv intro

          Hi all,

          The game is great etc.
          But the intro screens are just too loud, please reduce the audio by 65%. It literally deafens every streamer and avid gamer.

          We have all complained about it being too loud,

          Thanks <3

          • A random ambush of the flaregun stream!

            Well this happened today! However, my point being is that maybe the view count shouldnt be a thing.. anyone close to that door could have easily seen the view numbers and ran off!

                • FIX HERO TV FOR YOUTUBERS.

                  When viewers want to watch my stream on youtube they have to get the link from my stream and use it on Hero.tv instead of my name.

                  This should work - hero.tv/youtube/ragefu
                  This shouldn`t work hero.tv/youtubeHi4gEPEUnTA

                  • Are we ever gonna get more guns?

                    We could have double barrel shot guns, single shot rifles, and probably even metal combat knives that take much longer to break.

                    • Can flare guns do damage too? they become useless after someone calls in the heli.

                        Can we have the option to actually aim down our sights. It just doesn't feel right to have a 3rd person view of your gun when firing,

                            • Ability to vote on Hero while a stream is offline

                              Currently Hero allows you to vote on a player's match even when they are not streaming. I feel a change needs to be made where Hero checks for a stream's status first before allowing people to vote on that player's game.

                              Additionally- and I'm not sure how even I feel about this yet, I think it would be something to think about to require people to be logged in in order to vote. Currently I can have 10 different tabs open and cast a vote with every single one of them. This is, obviously, counter to the intent of voting…

                                • SOS review (what I think of the game so far). I will change the review, when the game is available for purchase at Steam Store.

                                  A promising game so far in the closed beta in my oppinion.

                                  SOS is a survival game, where the main objective is to find artifacts. You need this artifact to escape from the island. But people will try to kill you or the ''monsters'' does it for you. To prevent dying you need to find a good camp spot(if you don't have any weapons or have insane laggs, like me sometimes), be good with fists and many papayas, med kits for health, something sharpy, a head skull or a gun(a pistol). Finding guns is pretty easy, but they are stored…

                                  • Testing your voice before the match.

                                    I thought that this feature would be implemented in beta, but sadly it still not here. Please, make it possible to test how you sound by playbacking your voice in option while making adjustment to mic settings.
                                    Some players don't really know how loud or quite the sound to other players.

                                    • Random encounters (weather)

                                      To add more spice to the game I though about random encounters.
                                      For example weather change. Since Lacuna Island is a tropical island, it would be fun if at some point a storm would rain on the island, making hard to see at long distance, hardening the communication with players due to the wind. This random encounter should happen in mid-late game and not last longer than 5-10 min. It's also would be fun if it could disable the availability of evacuation protocol, forcing sos chopper to wait till storm die down. At this time, players should continue looting or…

                                      • Early game ranged weapon/Late game ranged weapon

                                        I have an idea for ranged weapons, that can be found across the map with no additional items needed to be able to pick them up.
                                        Early game:
                                        _
                                        Ancient bow and arrows. Come with own ammo supplies not found anywhere but with bow itself. Can be found in ancient ruins/caves. Bows can be picked up, but can last only 1-3 hit on enemy. So if we consider bow with 5-6 arrows, it's more than 10-15 shots if you could retrieve your arrows. Dmg should be around as good as throwing a knife. And firerate should be a bit slower…

                                        • Body Armor

                                          Suggestion to implement Body Armor. Makes it harder to kill the player and people might reconsider to loot more for protection!
                                          Body Armor's could spawn in Armor Cases (with and without locks). They also provide 50% or 100% protection against Damage. Depending on locked cases, perhaps make them random too so even new players have a chance to win against experienced players. Because if Lootspawns are not random, never players have a disadvantage. (IMO Randomness is great!)
                                          Maybe even Helmets. Just my Idea. Thanks Devs!
