Raptr Updates
Raptr just rolled out some more updates! Here’s a quick recap of our latest improvements.

Get Points Page update
To help keep track of the Reward Points you can earn, the Get Points page has been updated with a timer to let you know when you can repeat a specific action to earn more points. We’ve also included a points filtering option at the top of the page which will come in handy when we continue to add more ways for you to earn points.

Crosspost to Support
We know that everything isn’t perfect, but we’d like to make it as close to that as possible. In order to do so, we’ve made it easier for you to report your Raptr client and website issues. With just a click of a button, you can now add the Support topic to your posts and our very eager dinos will be happy to help you.

Recommendations on a quieter mouse or keyboard?
by thelordks
Raptr member thelordks is looking for a new keyboard and mouse that will help keep the noise down so as not to wake his wife when he games into the twilight hours. Leave him some of your recommendations.

What games would you like to see have a sequel? by Sheriff Dan
We may never get a third Half-Life or even Portal, but that doesn’t mean other games don’t deserve a sequel or ten. Share with us your thoughts on what games warrant a sequel.
