Default The Population Savour

I think realistically the only thing which will drag people back to the game again is the RO2 mods and Rising Storm, i doubt we are going to get flooded with players from updates but it will help to keep the population more stable and bring back lurkers etc so the games arent useless by any means.

So to the Rising Storm Team.... GIVE EM HELL!

Anyone else feel the same?

p.s i missed spelt savior

Then Rising storm will save RO 2 ? Why RO 2 can't save simply RO 2 ?

About the only thing that should bring players back would be free mods like Rising Storm and In Country. Players aren't going to be duped paying for bugs again.

I also feel that those two mods should allow MASSIVE beta testing by the community...testing not playing.

I disagree.

Mods may bring in old players and some new, but updates will also definitely bring in old players. Have you not been reading the forums filled with people who say they will come back when x issue is solved (many of which have been solved in the Beta), or are waiting for Classic mode?

And free weekends and sales will bring in new players.

The question is whether they stay, and for how long.

I disagree too. The only disappointment for with RO2 was the number of maps. ROOST opened with 16 maps (although it felt like a lot more). Glitches aside, I think this single factor has been the main cause for the sharp drop in numbers.

I'm still playing though; occasionally.

classic mode will probably bring me back...for a bit. the maps are rather lackluster and without APC's i dont see big maps coming out anytime soon.

But hey, we get 2 light tanks that will likely rot away in the unoccupied gumrak maps just like the last 2 tanks...

This game will make it along fine with all the updates and mods. It can only increase its longevity and playability for years to come. IMO anyway

New content more than anything else will keep players interested. Games have ever shortening lifespans in this crowded marketplace.

I think with the upcoming classic, mode that also will (hopefully) bring features like the online campaign mode, combined with a free weekend and maybe a steam sale we will get a fair ammount of new and interested players. After that Tripwire should work on more content. Like new maps, vehicles etc.

At risk of falling victim to a troll...

I could link you to some threads, but at this point it becomes a lot of reading.

To sum up, Classic is a new mulitplayer mode that is a concession to RO:Ost. fans who complained about things like run speed, lockdown, spawn on squad leader, weapon sway, shift-zoom, unlocks, and weapon loadouts. All those things and more have been variously removed or tweaked, to great fanfare by many. Action mode, at the other end of the spectrum, is a "spare time" experiment on the part of some of the devs to possibly make relaxed mode more casual than it is, to sharpen the contrast between the 3 basic modes the game will offer. For Action mode the main difference is 3 things: it has crosshairs, no more free aim, and players take more damage (or guns do less damage, I forget which).

The beta has always been around to test various things, especially stress tests on server tweaks, but has become the proving ground for Classic mode and various gameplay tweaks to Realism modes, the new map, and briefly to test Action mode. I could be wrong, but it seems like most or all updates to the game will see a test run in the beta.

You can find all the changelogs for Classic and Realism mode in the sticky threads here:

And a discussion of Action mode here:

There are two servers for Beta (one Classic, one Realism currently) available for download to anyone who owns Red Orchestra 2. Number of people varies with time.
