Forum Rules

CHANGES
  • Items changed, or highlighted for future attention, on 20 July 2013 are highlighted in yellow.
Global Rules
  • Forum moderators may or may not be Tripwire Interactive staff members, but either way, please respect them, as they are the authority of the forums. Speaking to them with intentional spite will not be tolerated and may result in the loss of your forum privileges.
  • Any decisions made by any member of staff or moderator are final and not subject to discussion. Doing so may result in a ban from the site. The owners of Tripwire Interactive Forums reserve the right to remove, edit, move or close any thread for any reason, as well as to remove access to the forums for any individuals with or without warning for breaches of the rules.
  • If you have a complaint regarding another user, PM the appropriate moderators, or if you have an administrative issue, [RO]schneidzekk.
General Behaviour
  • Use the search function before posting. Chances are your question has already been answered.
  • Use a title that describes the content of your post. Don't use all caps or special characters to draw attention either in the title or the body of the post.
  • Up to 10 emoticons are allowed in a post
  • Political discussions are prohibited.
  • Flaming - We do not tolerate abusive, malicious, personal attacks. You will be banned if you persist in this behavior.
  • Trolls - Anyone deliberately antagonizing other forum users by posting 'flame bait' type messages is not welcome. You will be banned (possibly without warning depending on the severity of the issue) if you persist in this behavior.
  • Personal insults (directed at anyone) will result in a ban. If the behavior is not corrected, it will be made more permanent.
  • Constructive criticism is welcome. However keep in mind we (and other forums goers) may not agree with you. If you can't keep the conversation civil, you will be removed from the forums.
  • The use of hyperbole, one liners, and images as part of a forum debate is likely to get you infracted. You have many ways to participate and be a constructive part of this community, even when you disagree.
  • To make the highlighted bits above 100% clear to everyone, the following WILL NOT BE TOLERATED:
    1. Personal attacks, insults, antagonism of any forum-goers, moderators or Tripwire Interactive staff.

    3. Any form of racism, bigotry or attacks on race, creed or color.
    4. Linking to posts on other forums related to ANY of the above, whether you are the originator or not, without exception.
  • There has been too much in the way of abhorrent personal behaviors in the past. These will cease. It doesn't matter who started it or who reacted to it - it will all result in moderator action. If you have to indulge your hatreds, for whatever reason, go do it elsewhere - and do not try and drag our forum-goers over to enjoy your hatreds.
  • We understand that people have strong feelings about our games, what we do for a living and how we respond (or don't) to comments on the forums. We all aren't going to agree about everything. So, BE CIVIL in your disagreements!

This includes publicizing private information, such as individual's real names, IP addresses and anything else that might be used to identify them to the freakier members of the internet. This also means you may NOT publically share private communications (PM, email or anything else) without the original poster's permission.
  • DO NOT Post or transmit any Content that contains a virus, Trojan horse or other mischievous Content.
  • DO NOT Post or transmit any unsolicited advertising, promotional materials, "junk mail", "spam", "chain letters", "pyramid schemes" or any other form of solicitation.

  • - For images in signatures: 1 image up to 400 pixels wide, 150 pixels tall and 100kb in size plus 2 lines normal size text and up to 100 chars per line
Netiquette: Written text has no inflection, and, as such, you should be careful how you write your messages as interpretation will vary from person to person. Please take advantage of the built-in emoticons to add such expression to your words. Please remember the golden rule: to treat other forum users the way you would like to be treated. Please use common courtesy, and enjoy using Red Orchestra's forums
Offensive material
The following is a list of some things that MAY be considered "offensive" by the moderators and the team. This is NOT an exclusive list and it does depend very much on context.

Crossing the line into "offensive" territory is likely to get you asked to change your name, sig or avatar or to withdraw/delete posts. This will be done politely by the moderators. If you refuse to comply further action WILL be taken once started, ultimately leading to banning from the forums.

A key point: please attempt to use your brains. What is mild humour to you may well be deeply offensive to others. While we have no intention of acting as politically-correct "thought police", we are on the lookout for those things that can cause offense and, in some cases, are actually still illegal in some jurisdictions.
  1. Names recalling notorious war criminals or personalities.
  2. Names recalling atrocities and war crimes in general, or units with particularly odious histories.
  3. Use of obscenities and expletives.
  4. Blatant racism, mysogynism or many other "ism"s.
  5. Use of symbolism and regalia recalling Nazism or Fascism; this does not include pics of soldiers who happen to have such symbols on their uniform, unless we feel this has been done to provoke. Please note that many Nazi symbols (including the Swastika) are still illegal in Germany and other countries and considered deeply offensive by many Europeans.
  6. Use of symbolism and regalia recalling Stalinism.
  7. On both the previous two, the moderators' views on the intention and impact of use of such symbols will be final - not yours. Please be understanding if you are advised to change something.
  8. In general, if a sig/avatar represents your allegiances in-game and is clearly "in part", it is likely to be fine; if the moderators feel you are trying to demonstrate unpalatable political allegiances, or to use it in an attempt to ridicule or provoke others you WILL be asked to change it. RO is NOT the place to make any extremist political statements of any kind.
Examples:
So people get the idea, some examples that would be considered offensive, numbered as above:
  1. "Hitler", "Beria"
  2. "NKVD Blocking Detachment", "Einsatzgruppen"
  3. This one should be pretty obvious...
  4. So should this - and it includes calling all Germans "Nazis" and all Soviets/Russians "Commies". It got boring 50 years ago, so stop it.
  5. Use of swastikas, fasces, SS-runes and so on for the Axis.
  6. There is actually very little overt symbolism from the Stalinist era; the hammer-and-sickle isn't offensive per se.
A simple rule-of-thumb: many Europeans find Nazi symbolism of any sort offensive; many Americans still find Soviet symbolism offensive. Engage your brain before using.




Final Note: this is NOT open to debate, so please do NOT start whining and moaning if a moderator asks you to change something. They will advise at first, giving reasons, then, if you take no notice, they will step up the pressure through to banning.

        lol

        Why would you buy a console because of one single game? If you pay for all that, you could buy several good games for another platform you already have access to.

            Its like you actually think console specific exclusivity is a good thing.

            I'm looking in the best interest of the core fanbase of TWI, which is on PC. Entitlement would be me saying I think it should only be on PC. I have no problem with it being on the ouya, but to completely put your core fanbase SoL in terms of not being able to play a game is not a good way to cultivate users.

            I would really like to know the figures on sales of calamity and the amount of Ouyas that sold from the promo code specific to calamity. Just to see what a great idea it was to 'believe' in the Ouya.

                I'm here speaking for those who don't feel like making a forum account just to discuss their disdain for the ouya and this choice to leave out the core fanbase. I'm not alone in my views.

                    I doubt KF:C is taking up that much time in terms of developing at this stage, and isn't it the DWARFFSFSFFSF guys developing it anyways, rather than the main TWI team?

                    Besides, don't the people using OUYA deserve a nice shooter game?

                      I think the OP is just kicking up a fuss over nothing. If TWI want to support the underdogs by making their title exclusive to the console, let them. It's not like there aren't already a bajillion other top-down shooters you can buy. Why are you so obsessed with playing this one?

                      All the people who say the Ouya is a failure are either PC fanboys or those that are too poor to buy it.

                        You are correct, some of them are from these forums, but the vast majority are from SUF. If I were to update the picture now, it would be even more apparent the vast majority is from SUF.

                        Sure. But doesn't the core fanbase that put TWI on the map deserve another signature product of theirs?

                        I'm not the only person with fuss. Its apparently more than nothing if the vast majority of Killing Floor players either 1. Don't know what an ouya is or 2. Aren't going to buy an ouya for one game.

                        Because exclusivity in terms of video games is bad. Also because this one is Killing Floor. I like Killing Floor. A lot. Nothing else in steam is Killing Floor, besides Killing Floor. I would more likely than not like Calamity because it has Killing Floor in the name.

                        If somebody is too poor to buy an Ouya, then they have other priorities. Ouya is ultimately a failure because it (as a 'console') brings nothing new to the table that current smart phones can already do, in addition to other things. It may have been a passable idea when it was first conceived, but in the year 2014, its irrelevant.

                        I choose to not buy an Ouya for more than one reason. Not because I'm too poor, or because I'm a 'PC fanboy', its because there is no other reason to own one except exclusivity, and that is a terrible reason. I already have something far more capable of handling calamity and any other game the ouya can run. Why should I buy a small piece of propietary hardware if I can already vastly out-perform it in every aspect?

                        This whole thing just seems like a ploy to clear out warehouse stock on ouyas, not even a good ploy.

                          And why would you buy top-down shooter which offers nothing new when you already have Killing Floor which outshines Calamity in every aspect on PC - let alone compared to every other top-down shooter out there?

Its nice that KF sold nearly 2M copies, but regardless of that many sales, it holds about as many players as does an old person on furosemide holds fluid.
                          You do realise the same conversation gone through different variations back when Red Orchestra 2 was launched? Interpretations run abound, but if the common forum argument was to be believed TWI would have crashed and burned somewhere around late 2011 to early 2012. So far it's practically 2014 and TWI still apparently floats, and given they stir up attention like this they either have too much disposable income and\or are good at evading taxes, or won few rounds of lottery in a row.
                          There was a signature here, but it's gone now.

                            I see, so you feel you are entitled to have this game on your platform of choice because you enjoy another related game.

                            Ouya is ultimately a failure because it (as a 'console') brings nothing new to the table that current smart phones can already do
                            It allows for multiplayer on a big screen, which already is something very significant. Other reasons for buying an Ouya are pretty much the same as why someone would by any other console instead of a PC.

                            I'm afraid I can't see why making the game console-exclusive is bad other than "but I want to play it on a pc!". You seem to be under the impression that you have the 'right' to play a video game how you want to play it.

                              I think you feel self entitled to buying a game and figure because you spent some form of money on thier product they have to listen to your business ideas and when you arent happy with what they want to do it offends everyone

                                Last I checked, Killing Floor wasn't top down, so it can't be compared properly to calamity. Also the only good top down shooter on steam right now is alien swarm, which only has one level.

                                I don't think they'll crash and burn, but they could certainly do much better. I wish they would live up to their CoD/EA bashing philosophy and become amazing. The ouya isn't going to get them to fame though.

                                I fail to see how platform specific exclusivity is a good thing. Please explain how it is. It would be nice if things that can be run on another platform would show up on another platform. Game exclusivity is not a good thing at all.

                                Because people really want to play android tier games on their TV. Isn't that what everybody wants? I guess thats why the ouya really did so amazing since its launch and everybody is talking about it.

                                Platform specific exclusives? Still not a good reason ever to own a specific piece of hardware.

                                I can't see why making a game platform exclusive is good. Isn't it in the best interest of any developer to release on a wide array of platforms for maximum appeal? Or has that philosophy changed. Or is there more *initial* money involved with signing a deal for platform exclusivity? Without exclusives, what is the reason in owning a console ever?

                                The only thing you highlighted in that post that was remotely entitled was 'deserve'.
