    An in-game communication?
    A real lobby?

    In front of lobby?
    How about a lobby where you can meet friends, invite friends?

    Lags?
    If, like me, you end up in a tree for a lag and then die, it might be funny. But not if you are permanently killed by other opponents because you can not move properly.

    What's the Twitch connection for?
    You can not do anything with this right now.

      • Helmets need to be removed

        Helmets are hideously broken in melee fights. Body armor seems to be designed entirely around gunplay and it completely breaks melee damage. It essentially gives your opponent twice your health, and unless you're really, really good, you will not win unless the other person is really, really new/bad.

        I'm perfectly okay with body armor. I like the idea of shielding your torso. But give headshots a genuine bonus. Make headshotting your opponent with melee or thrown or ranged attacks actually worth it instead of just another shot on them.

        I was hoping that this most recent update would draw me…

            • 좆 같아서 한글로 쓴다. 알아서 번역해라

              내가 Wilcox로 가만히 서있는 애들 중 2명에게 헤드샷을 3번 쐈는데 아무도 대미지를 입지 않았다.
              그리고 난 Melee weapon을 5개 갖고 있었는데 3개 던지니까 맨손으로 있었어. 한참을 있다가 2키를 누르니까 그제서야 꺼내더라?
              하지만 그 때 난 이미 적에게 죽었다.
              가뜩이나 핑 높아서 앞으로 전진하기만 했을뿐인데 앞뒤로 울렁거리는거 꾹 참고 하는데
              이런 버그까지 나타나니 너무나 답답하다
              어서 고쳐보자!!!

              • 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

                            Hey there! We would love to support additional websites being integrated with Hero, and YouTube is a platform integration that’s on our roadmap. There are a few technical blockers for us from committing to a definitive date, but I’ll be sure to notify you here when we have a planned timeline!

                            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.

                              It can do burn damage or even just hurt people. as it is right now, its useless late game.

                                    • 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…
