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.

  • Just curious if TWI plans something in near future

    1. Will MG AI gunner be removed, or tweaked in order not to act like aimbot

    2. Bunch of many new custom maps made by people that mod, any chance you guys gonna fix the downloading custom maps, or maeby just take the new modders maps in house and release them viat patch on Steam, can we have this happen in near future because the old maps are getting booring somewhat.

    3. Well this is not a question, I know 1 map will be released with the upcoming patch and Classic mode, but hoping you guys will bring more new maps in near future,thanks.

      Steamwork Shop is apperantly a viable option for TWI and I hope they can implement it or something of the sort in the near future.

            Of course that's what we all want, however the new tanks aren't drastically different in how they function compared to the already existing tanks.
            APC's on the other hand are very different in functionality, which is something that will take time to make.

            I'd rather have them prepare the work on APC's by first allowing people to hop in and out of tanks with a proper animation. That should probably also allow for quicker transfer of code to the APC's.

              Unless they said they were discussing it and I missed it, I highly doubt it. Right now afaik only skyrim and tf2 uses the workshop, it makes zero fiscal sense for valve to host ro2 mods with our playerbase where it is. Would be awesome, but I doubt it.

              Mount and Blade has a much larger modding community, a MUCH larger playerbase, and still can't get on the workshop.

                thats like another 12+ months; this is ridiculous.

                Honestly, these fully detailed interiors of vehicles is the stupidest design decision ive ever seen. It takes TWI so much time and money to add vehicles and it makes it so that modders cant really add their own. what were they thinking?

                the level of detail currently in game should have been reserved for a tank sim not for an fps whose tanking gameplay is lackluster to begin with. Really did nobody at TWI foresee this? Nobody said, "Guys i think this a waste of time..."?

                  Yoshiro has stated that there will be 2 more maps coming-- with the caveat, if everything with the maps they have are working on now are ironed out. Yoshiro also made the reference that they have more than 2 maps in development, however, they need to finish at least two.

                  So, hopefully more in the future.

                    Another 12+ months, where did you pull that number from? We have no idea how far the progress on anything like that is, or how long it will take for it to be finished.

                    I personally think that RO2 went for a new standard in immersiveness, and fully realised tank interiors really do help with that. The game isn't meant to have huge number of tanks, it's a first person shooter that has tanks to support gameplay, not dictate it.

                    We know for certain that we will get atleast 4 different tanks. And presumably they will listen to the community and add stuff like APC's later on.

                    And I wouldn't be surprised that even if they left out the interiors, the tank would still feature a lot more complexity than the old RO1 tanks.

                      12+ months was an educated guess. I doubt we'll get those 2 meaningless tanks by the end of summer, let alone APCs with new mechanics. I'm anticipating that we're going to get APC's maybe this time next year if we're lucky. I mean, hell we dont even have Stug III's which were one of the most common tanks; will we ever get that?

                      Fully realized interiors. Honestly who gives a s*** when tanking as a whole broken? Besides the novelty of it all dies out after a few hours. Granted i've only tanked for maybe 1-2 hours total on Gumrak, but considering how everyone pretty much dies in 1 hit, i have yet to actually see any those fancy changing position animations. These interiors appear to take up a lot of time; time which could be used more efficiently getting out more vehicles, maps, weapons, etc. Because we dont have APC's, most large map projects are stalled until TWI decides to ante up the transports. I enjoy mapping but i dont even bother right now because its literally a chore to walk across my OWN map.

                      it was a very unique and ambitious attempt, but some things are not practical; im surprised no one at TWI raised concerns
