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. Name Shaming and Public "Witch Hunts" are also not allowed.
    3. Breaches of confidentiality and privacy of any sort.
    4. Any form of racism, bigotry or attacks on race, creed or color.
    5. 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, "necro 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 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.

  • Protect the area 3v3

    For a new mode , if even possible, to add a bit off flare to the game, before BACK 4 BLOOD comes out with all there hush hush modes,imagine overgrowth in halo 5 playing strongholds, so what I propose is that it would be so much fun if there was two teams off 3 or 4 against eachother, were you had to capture their area for a certain amount off time to gain points, but not as easy as would be in halo 5 , were you just have to worry about the other team interuptinin your take over on the area, you also will be worry off the zeds also coming into the capture area, and the shooting off your weapons will alert the other team off your location, you can kill the other team obviously, so when the waves continue to get harder also the pod for you to get new weapons will also prove a great issue to upgrade as the other team can kill you when upgrading as would be good to only have one pod in the middle, so a auto refill off weapons would maybe prove best as it's fast to do, zones can be captured when the gun pod is active so some one will need to guard your area from been taken over, so team work is a must and you actually might have to use the mic for once when playing this game, as I actually never have needed to yet,

    My other game mode would have to be two small teams against eachother again but only capture the flag, only the flags tend to attract the zeds like wild fire, the flags can be used as a powerful melee weapon, if the flag gets drops the zeds protect it untill it's respawns back to the other teams base, neutral flag may work better for this?

    I know I would play the game more with great modes

    Just don't write this idea off, think and imagine the possibilities off great gameplay​

    I don't think PvP is good for this game. They tried it with Survival Versus, but that mode was so imbalanced that no one plays it anymore, and TW doesn't seem to care for it.

      Maybe there versus mode would have worked better if they actually used AI like in left4dead2, there versus mode works a charm, this game when playing online badly needs AI team mates, and when someone joins they take the place off the AI, using AI team mates keeps modes and games going that not many people play anymore, I find it hard to get more than two people at times, and if the next map does not suit them they leave,love the game but it needs some tweaks , when the new Back 4 blood comes out it might destroy all games like this one,that why I'm saying keep the maps small and the teams small, and if the mode worked, people would come back, this game is just a one mode game and as new as I am too it, i am jumping back to lfd already for the change up it offers

        I doubt it will destroy anything as games at its core will be different.
        Not to mention im really sceptical about their new game, considering what a major flop Evolve was... Even if its core had an interesting concept.

        Also this game would not benefit from AI teammates at all, and here are the reasons.

        1. They would be dumb, no way going around that.
        Since the game features so many zeds with their own quirks and features, and weapons that have different uses depending on a loadout, there's no way to program them to account for everything, to have any critical thinking.
        And don't compare this statement to l4d ai, as it also not that complex, as all it does is shoot at anything thats moving and heal wounded players. With zombies in that game barely having any depth of approach, that AI is sufficient enough to do the job.

        2. It would make the game way more difficult than it should be.
        Since:
        A. Bots will count as players and wave will adjust to it in larger numbers
        B. They would die quickly, leaving you with larger mess than you're be able to deal with.

        Only reason that versus in l4d works, is because the game is at a slower pace than kf2, with more downtime than action.
        Special infected having same attributes with only difference is that they can be player controlled.
        While twi tried to go with alpha zeds that have extra abilities + the game itself set at higher diff, launching mobs fast and frequently, and that player zeds had more health and dealt more damage, made it quite one sided game... At this point idk why they didn't remove it from the game.

        This one personal, but l4d2 is only surviving on its modding community, because at its vanilla state it doesn't have much to last for a few hundred hours.

        Only way to continue having fun there is if you have friends to play it with, to play custom campaigns and mod hell out of the game to bring some kind of variety.

          Not to mention versus in this game was more advantageous to the mercs than the zeds, with lvl 25 being in a normal default setting for the game. Seriously, one example I can think of is that husk fireballs barely do any real damage, as well as suicide, while the flamethrower is that zed's bestt chance of doing anything. Not to mention players on the zed team have little chance of forming strategies that aren't 'zerg rush into the enemy'.
