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 text signatures: 4 lines normal size, 8 lines small size and up to 100 chars per line. Font sizes above 2 are not allowed. (Blank lines count as lines.)
  • - 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.

    I sort of like the old mod trailer. It showed some gameplay footage that was more than just a flash, and it had a sort of epic cinematic feel at the same time(Not saying it is end all perfect but it does catch my attention).

      The tank sound of RO 3.1 sounds very great. I love this sound of the tracks.

        How about a few different trailers showing off the aims for the two new modes, and one showing the tanks off. Classic trailer with some suspense, native voices, low HUD, lethal weapons, sway etc. Then a different video with pure action, running & gunning, crosshairs, low damage weapons, pimping the mkb with its scope/bayonet, player progression, big explosions, english voices etc

        They could release them one after another in a run up to the free weekend. Might be good publicity and get people talking about the game and make people aware that its aiming for different audiences with one game

          That 'Mayhem' trailer is awesome. This is exactly the type of marketing TWI needs to do in a relaunch.

            And yeah, both those trailers are good as cinematics, but still show very little of the actual gameplay. They look cool, but I wouldn't say they're terribly effective as advertisements for the game. Anyone can make a great, atmospheric video for, well, pretty much anything, but that can be quite misleading as to how the game actually plays.

                I noticed that too, I just wasn't going to say anything

                Lot's of spray & pray running around.

                No matter how good a trailer or cinematic is, none will meet that criteria you spoke of, as the only real way to meet that criteria of properly showing how the game actually plays can only be done by actually playing the game yourself (demo / free weekend, etc.)

                Trailers and Cinematics are designed to grab your attention and peak your interest, nothing more.

                Just like a movie.... a trailer may look cool and peak your interest, but once you see that movie, it could be utter crap.

                  Ehh, the first trailer in the thread does a fairly good job of being fairly representative of what you'll see in-game. That's the kind of footage I want to see before buying a game, really. It doesn't give you a full feel of everything in the game, but it gives a good taste. The RO1 trailer had a little, if not nearly as much, so I appreciate that. The others make great cinematics, but don't show gameplay as well.

                  Though at least none of it is pre-rendered, non-game footage like so many trailers do. I hate that, so utterly useless for saying anything about the game. I might like the videos as movies (Blizzard makes some stuff that makes some computer-animated movies look straight-up bad), but it won't convince me it's a game worth buying.

                  At least a movie-trailer is representative of what you'll see in the movie, as they're showing the same scenes you actually see in the movie (...usually. And curse the studios that change that up on you). The movie-trailer equivalent of these methods used in video-game trailers would be a film of them shooting the movie, or possibly a staged re-creation of a scene from the movie.

                    Red Orchestra: Ostfront 41-45 looks like a good combination of gameplay and action to me. If Red Orchestra 2 Mayhem would incorporate some gameplay perspective (preferably without HUD) that'd be the best. Right now it's very cinematic and fun to watch and might interest the viewer, so is good for a start, but not necessarily represent of the game itself like someone before me has said.

                        I would indeed love to see trailers or videos that show the upcoming content, like classic and action mode, the campaign etc.

                            Problem is trailers show how the game is supposed to be played and so is supposed to look.

                            But it turns to play out very different often times

                            I've never seen Fallen Fighters so crowded at the center of the map or Grain Elevator with so much action or huge waves of attackers at the top of the street at Spartanovka and anywhere....

                              Most HOS trailers won't be showed on TV or things like that, they end up on trailer websites and other online content places. That do not necessarily have a limit to length.

                              While it might take a lot of time, a video of someone playing a full round and seeing people work together for me often works better. I want to see if a game is what I'm looking for I want to know how the game goes in the end.

                              But what the old RO had was that it made you feel like you were an unlucky guy that happened to be in war. The newer trailers often look more like you're the lucky guy that gets to shoot loads of people. A different sentiment with me personally liking the war feel more.
