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.
    2. Breaches of confidentiality and privacy of any sort.
    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!
DO NOTs
  • DO NOT Transmit any message, information, data, text, software or graphic files, or other materials ("Content") that is unlawful (including illegal drug usage), harmful, threatening, abusive, harassing, defamatory, vulgar, obscene, libelous, hateful or racially, ethnically, sexually or otherwise objectionable. 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.
  • DO NOT link to posts on any other forums, or any other form of media, that breaches our rules. It will be treated just the same as if you had posted it here.
  • DO NOT Double Post, cross Post or restart closed threads.
  • DO NOT Intentionally or unintentionally violate any applicable local, state, national or international law, rule or regulation.
  • DO NOT Upload or transmit any Content that infringes any patent, trademark, trade secret, copyright or other proprietary rights ("Rights") of any party.
  • DO NOT post cheats or exploits; THIS INCLUDES ALL/ANY REFERENCES TO HACKING, PIRATED SOFTWARE etc.
  • DO NOT complain about being banned from a server and DO NOT complain about other players on servers - that is between you and the admin, no need to get the community involved.
Username, Avatar and Signature Rules
  • Multiple registrations result in a ban.
  • No offensive user names
  • Avatars:
    Avatars are disabled.
  • All signatures should not exceed the following size limits, you can have both text and images

  • - 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.

  • You don't have to use one perk in a round

    No, actually, it benefits more that you don't use only one perk in a round, unless that perk is always useful (Berserker for an example). Starting with Sharpshooter is always a good choice, or other classes provided that you level them enough (ie Firebug Armor).

    Don't use a Firebug or Commando at boss wave, it's pretty useless, and a sharpshooter's power against the Patriarch is rather doubtful. It might be better to sell your weapons, swap to demo and buy a LAW when you know that the final wave features nothing but clots and the Patriarch.

    Some people tend to think that they are playing only one class, but the truth is that there are times that some classes may outshine other or become useless, and the important thing is to determine when to change perk and adapt to face the incoming threat.

    A medic or demo (without free weapon perks) may be able to make it through wave 1, but Sharpshooter is still a better choice. Although this isn't important in the first wave, it would in the later waves such as switching to Demo if your team doesn't have one to deal with waves you know that has Fleshpounds in it, or switch to a Sharpshooter to headshots Scrakes if there are no sharp in your team.

    Most players would understand this, but some new players might not, so I think I'd put it out there.

    I start as lvl 6 medic usually, but new players will want to start with sharpie, Berserker is almost as good.
    Medic just gets superior starting bonuses, you save almost 600 if you get the first round (If you dont take damage). Commando and Firebug shines from waves 1-6, and after it they should be switched away.
    Support and demo, they are your late-game perks, takes down BIG guys.
    Skilled Medic and Zerkers can be inside your team to the end of the game!

      If you start as sharpshooter you make 600 "if you get the first round", and damage taken is irrelevant. As an added bonus you can use the bow during the wave for easy clot kills and still make just as much dosh selling it. I wholeheartedly disagree, unless you are in dire need of an MP7.

        Play the game more. A single firebug is awesome against Patty because he can keep Patty on fire, making Patty very easy to spot and track, and Patty's use of healing syringes can be interrupted. Commando can track the Patty as well but he needs the team to be smart enough to keep up with him as he tracks. Sharpie plus xbow plus headshot is a lethal combination. Medic plus xbow plus headshot plus medic speed is a lethal combination in a closed map.

          Sharps L6 sell their Xbow for 600.
          Demos sell their pipes and M79 for ~550.
          Medics, bugs and zerks will get close to 600 if you assume the armour will save you
          Favourite classes: Sharp/support/demo (not a stupid demo don't worry).
          I don't like medics.
          Mostly play on HoE thesedays.

              A FB can keep the patriarch alight for the rest of the team making it easier for them to track him.

              The commando is the eyes of the team, the only perk that can see the patriarch cloaked, he can also let the team know how much life the patriarch has left, from one of my own games some time ago:

              http://cloud.steampowered.com/ugc/55...5212F18D024D3/

              Both perks are quite effective against the patriarch.

              I try and pick a perk that isn't already being used when I join the game and if I need to change I will.

                A fair point my good sir, but embracing the challenge of taking on the Patriarch as a Firebug or Commando and making use of your situational strengths to overcome the rest of your team mates individual weaknesses is what Killing Floor is all about.

                You only truly get that feeling of accomplishment when you beat the game with a healthy mix of exploit free classes.

                I know who I am friend. I am the torch in dark hallways, I am the pheonix on your shoulder, I set them alight, I ignite and kite, I watch them crisp, and I watch them burn, I live by the flame, or I die by the flame.

                Firebug for life!


                I'll think of something to put here later....

                  Spawn as level 6 sharpshooter, get free Crossbow. Immediately after spawning, switch to Medic before the round starts. After wave one is over, you can sell the crossbow, buy a suit of armor for discount, and then switch to whatever perk you actually want to play.

                      I must be one of the few players that never spawns as lv6 sharpie on a HOE game. I usually spawn as commando.

                      But that's mostly because I'm afraid that I will **** up as sharpie.

                        You know, i have a hard time whenever i spawn as a Commando actually! For playing a 6-man HoE pug game, i think the AK has so few bullets and the 9mm is so weak. But when i play as Sharpie i have an easier time, with plenty of 9mm (headshots) that are really powerful, and the "railgun" Xbow is really good too.

                        If all perks would have equal spawnvalue from their gear at level 6, the 2 main perks i would choose to spawn with would be either Firebug or Sharpshooter. Yes, im serious, i think those 2 are the easiest to spawn with...

                          I would say berserker is easiest to spawn with. The chainsaw isn't really that great, but all you're facing are clots, gorefasts and bloats. If you die, you're doing something wrong.
                          Closely followed by firebug, you've got armour, loads of ammo and a weapon that kills pretty much any zed on that wave with a single puff of flame, and instant kills it with a double click on them.

                          I normally spawn as a sharp or a demo for the cash though. Cheesey, but hey sue me. Taking demo a bit more lately after I worked out the cash is almost the same as a sharp, but blowing up clots with explosions is far more fun than just knocking off heads.
                          Favourite classes: Sharp/support/demo (not a stupid demo don't worry).
                          I don't like medics.

                            On a side note: I almost always play right through the game as one class, unless the team is in dire need of a shuffle.

                            There is something... pure about sticking with a path, no matter the squalls. If nothing else it makes me feel cool... even when dead
