Rogue Company adds new Extraction LTM: how it works

Rogue Company has added an all-new ‘Extraction’ LTM to tide us over until the major August update arrives next week, so let’s take a look at what makes this new mode tick.

The major Rogue Company update that the community was looking for this week may have been delayed until Monday, August 17, but at least Hi-Rez has given players a new limited-time mode ‘Extraction’ to pass the time until then.

Extraction is similar to Demolition but instead of multiple sites to plant the bomb at, there’s only one objective already the map that both teams have to fight over after dropping in.

The objective is activated the same way one would defuse the bomb in Demolition, which begins a countdown timer. The other team can still claim the objective as their own though, and whichever side has it when the time expires, wins the round.

Each round is single elimination, so a team can also win just by knocking out all the members of the enemy team, which is what usually seems to end up happening in Rogue Company matches most of the time anyway.

Having only one objective on the map to fight over does change the flow of matches quite a bit though. Instead of two different sites to keep track of, teams now know exactly where to go to get into the action.

This makes it much easier to find enemies, and much easier to flank around with quick Rogues like Lancer and attack the enemy side from where they won’t be expecting it.

Extraction seems to be tailor-made for the speediest Rogue of them all – Lancer.

Extraction will only be around for the weekend and ends on Monday, August 17, so if you want to try it out you’ll only have a few days to do so.

The good news, though, is that even though the new LTM will be gone on Monday, Rogue Company will be getting its highly-anticipated August update that includes a new map, major changes to Rogues, and more.

Shroud says using Dr Disrespect Rogue Company skin risks Twitch bans

Twitch streamer Michael ‘shroud’ Grzesiek has said that Dr Disrespect’s Rogue Company skin could be “tricky” for streamers on the platform that want to use the skin in-game — and could even result in a ban.

Dr Disrespect was banned on Twitch on June 26, and several months later there still doesn’t seem to be any hint as to what he did to earn the ban, with his fans and apparently he himself left in the dark over the reason.

Since then, many peers and critics alike have questioned the ban, with Twitch themselves remaining tight-lipped, but one thing is clear: streamers on the platform, according to its Terms of Service, aren’t allowed to stream with those that are banned on the platform.

For that reason, shroud thinks that Twitch streamers who would like to use Doc’s new Rogue Company skin in-game could face big punishments.

After suggesting that using the skin could even result in a ban for his fellow Twitch streamers, shroud was asked why he thinks that’s possible — and he just called the entire situation “tricky.”

“I would say it’s only tricky in that one part, because it’s like, 100% his likeness, you know?” shroud said. “It looks like him and everything.”

He continued: “That’s why I said it’s a tricky question, right? If it was, like, a gun skin, that’s a little different. But it’s a full-on, whole body… That’s when it’s just like ‘I don’t know’.”

This likely isn’t something that many would have thought of, but it definitely raises some valid questions about how strict Twitch’s policy is in regards to situations like these.

We know that they don’t want their partners streaming with banned creators, but whether this extends to playing as a character based off of them remains to be seen. If it’s an issue, I’m sure we’ll find out sooner rather than later.
