Tripwire has been hard at work fixing and optimizing their WW2 FPS military game, Red Orchestra 2: Heroes of Stalingrad, and according to the developers themselves, a new patch will be released in the coming days. This patch will feature graphical improvements with the lighting system, several performance enhancements, fix of the sound loss on map change and most importantly, fixed stats/achievements systems.
All is not good though, as Tripwire stated that the stats will be reset when this patch arrives. Due to the problems with stats and players either earning stats and achievements that they didn’t actually earn or earning stats at many times the intended rate, Tripwire decided to do a global reset of all stats for the game.
As the company stated:
“This means all achievements, stats and player progression will be rolled back as if all players were new. This was not an easy decision for us to make, but one we felt we needed to do to preserve the integrity of the stats and ranking system, and to provide all of the players the best experience with the game over the long term.”
To reward all those that have been playing Red Orchestra 2, all players will earn double experience in Red Orchestra 2 for a limited time. Additionally, Tripwire is going to give all players that own the game before the reset a special achievement called “In B4 Reset”. Right now this is just an achievement, but they’re going to be looking at ways to give special rewards to the players that have this achievement in the future.
