Upcoming Forum Overhaul

We are starting the work to switch our forums, which have been based on a version of the Vbulletin forum software since their inception with the Red Orchestra mod (then VB 3 and currently VB 5.1) to an all new forum software called Xenforo. After researching it, we feel Xenforo is a better choice for the future as it has a vibrant modding and addon community that will allow us to extend the functions of these forums in ways players will enjoy.

As part of this, at some point in the near future these forums will be locked down so we cant merge over all of the existing content into the new forum database. It will likely then be a few more days as we work on the new forum and correct any issues from the merge.

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.[/COLOR]
  • 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:
    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
[COLOR=darkred]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.

  • Hell on Earth Rewards/Leaderboard

    Running Hell on Earth should yield higher rewards/exclusive cosmetics for completion, especially long waves. It has to be Specific maps or maybe if you complete all maps on long wave would grant a crate. Some people would just try to abuse this via Nuked or Spillway.

    Perhaps a leaderboard for fastest time clear which each perk would give something to aim for. This would bring in a lot more people to this game. Leaderboards always bring in competition. If there is a way to measure skill, people want to strive to the best.

    No.... Hell freakin no.

    People already focus too much on the amount of kills they do, giving no attention to the team and in result creating a more toxic environment because they think that kills is what matters the most.
    Same deal with kids bragging about how they can survive solo hoe with X perk.....

    Adding the leaderboard would just make situation worse and give new players the idea of jumping back and forth between the chokes, trying to kill everything asap.... When in the end one lane has too many zeds and the team has a bad time surviving... Aka going from controlled chaos to pure chaos.

    I'd suggest on removing anything that has to do with individualism and display only the info that benefits others, like assist or heals done... And then just show who did most what at the end screen.

    It's a freakin co-op game, not a lone star 6 man competition of who kills the most zeds has the biggest shlong.

      Calm down soy boy. Leaderboards with all players 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6. And no this doesn't have to be a team game. Judging by your comment, I bet no one wants to play with you. You are toxic.

      If this brought more players this means more money for TW. I guess you don't want to see become more successful.

        And judging by your reply, you're a basic player with probably a bit over 100 hours in the game, that hasn't experienced the game fully with its vast variety of player base and whole mental state of the game.
        ​​​​​
        Leaderboards don't bring more people into the game, content and marketing does.

        And saying the game doesn't have to be a team game when at its core it is, means you're one of those who thinks he's better at the game than anyone else, and this whole suggestion is nothing more than to just add another stat showcase to boast about.

        Now i'm gonna sit here and wait for your another basic attempt at insulting me.

          Poor cry baby. Nice assumptions you made. You think time played = good player. That doesn't mean anything. There are plenty of people have played more hours, yet are worse. You seem to fit that niche by your toxic comments. You sit here and post on forums instead of actually playing the game. You are not bringing anything to the table except your ineptitude.

          Competition drives players. CSGO, Unreal Tournies, Quake are perfect examples.

          I'm sorry but i've crossed the 1900 hour mark while you probably sit at 300.

          And you just made a pointless example of listing those 3 game that are at their core A Competitive PVP 1st person shooters.
          Ofc the competition will drive players.

          While KF2 Is a CO-OP 6 man Horde Survival game that emphasises teamwork to survive till the end... Not to kill most players and get most mvp stars to rank up from silver to mg1 you freakin baguette.
          And the only close thing that kf2 has in terms of pvp is a versus mode that no one gives a rats ***, not even developers at this point.

          So again no.
          The whole leaderboard idea will just bring out more assholes into the playing field, focusing only onto themself and then brag how many kills they got or how far they reached the wave while playing solo.

        This is a pretty good idea for cosmetics, would like to see a 2 piece changeable outfit for HoE players and even a Elite Icon (small, not to big) by the players name. This also could be the next SPEED RUN.

          People are already selfish enough as is trying to hog all kills instead of watching their area or not healing cos they too busy going for kills, leaderboards would probably make it worse, would be nice to unlock a unique skin for welder,healer, 9mms for beating all maps on hoe or something like that though would be cool goal to aim for. I know I haven't beaten all on hoe so would give me more motivation to try some of the harder 1s.

            I have 800 hours played. Maxed prestiged. I said solo, two, three, four, five, six men. AS A TEAM, you are looking to clear the floors together in the quickest way. You did not read my comment and instead assumed things, like an ignorant spoiled brat. Play time means little when you are not advancing as a player. When I first bought the game, I was already better than most you played 1k+ hours so the your play time irrelevant.

            Keep venting your anger on here. It's hilarious how easily triggered you are. You should seek counseling.

              Honestly, using "soy boy" and "triggered" unironically already sets the tone.

              Crawl back into the game to earn your **** rewards mate.
