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.

  • Twisted Christmas Opt-In Beta - How To and Changelog

    Hello everyone,

    With the full release of the Killing Floor 2: Twister Christmas event happening next week (on December 12!), we are opening parts of the event up early to those brave enough to help us check for any major issues. Now there are a few things to note about this opt-in beta and how to join:
    • While we are not expecting any major bugs to show up to ruin Twisted Christmas, they just might (that is the reason this beta exists).
    • If you encounter one, please provide us with as much detail as possible how to reproduce it. This will help our teams find it and fix it faster. Being vague or referencing things that “everybody knows” generally is not helpful!
    • To join this test, “Right Click” on the game in your Steam Library and choose properties. From there select the beta tab. On the beta tab you will find a drop down box. Choose the option “preview” from that box and hit OK.
    • To opt out, you go to the same location and choose “none” from the drop down box.




    While this beta includes the majority of content and features of the Twisted Christmas event, it will not include any seasonal event specific drops. Players progression, such as perks and achievements, will be saved and carry forward. With that in mind, there are some major changes we would love to have an extra eye or two (or a thousand) on!
    • The Twisted Christmas Zeds are ready to roam, and they hope you taste delicious
    • The Abomination/Krampus wants to give you his special kiss
    • A new system should be in place to look for and grant missing Dosh Vault crates that players have earned
    • And a myriad of fixes that will be detailed out in the changelog




    Server admins who wish to help test this update can update their servers can run their server update script with the following addition: app_update 232130 -beta preview

    A big thank you for all who choose to help us out! The full changelog can be found below:

      Are there more balance changes coming in the full update?
      I noticed the new guns arent here yet, which makes sense because it's a patch preview not a full patch.
      Which makes me curious if we're going to see anymore perk changes on full patch release?

              Hey! Worth mentioning that on Krampus' lair on Suicidal difficulty, I had a bit of a... problem.

              I made it to the boss level on Suicidal difficulty. (Normal length game)
              When the Krampus spawned (magnificent boss, btw), I fought with him for about 20 seconds before the boss cinematic happened a second time.
              The boss introduction cinematic occurred and I could see from the camera effects going on that I was taking bloat damage from the Krampus already.

              When the cinematic completed, I had taken a great deal of damage (probably from the krampus?) but I also noticed that a second Krampus had been spawned in. I spent the next minute or so running for my life until one of the Krampus simple keeled over and died. I only had it about a quarter of the way down in health, but one of them died apparently out of nowhere and I was given the "victory" screen as if I had killed him myself.

              To be honest it was a wild ride start to finish, but I thought I would let you guys know that the Krampus occasionally spawns twice.
              Outside of that, I love the new update. The new weapons are a blast to play with and I'm looking forward to the full release. I'll be enjoying some of the new cosmetic changes as well.

                Oh yeah, the new ZED scaling is probably gonna help a lot, I love these small tweaks.

                Yet, sometimes I still feel confused if it's a cyst, a clot or a slasher, when i see one of them, they die so quickly that I can't tell.

                Also, can't wait to see the new cosmetics!! *-*

                    Alright, so I had a single playthrough on the new map and here's my input so far :

                    -The new custom sights for the field medic are a welcomed addition. I thought it would be nothing, but I ended up liking the Medic's AR way more as a result (for some reason?). It is STILL not the medic tweaks we are asking for...But it's something.

                    -The map is pretty cool! I like that it is NOT that christmas themed and actually looks more like a horror movie set in a snowy place... That's a nice break from your usual maps and I really like it. It is also quite bloody! I would have liked a real giant wood chipper though, but that's just nitpicking!

                    -I'm damn glad the objectives are actually easier this time around! The games of Abusement park were a real pain to do... I do wonder what are the so-called "krampus trinkets" ? But I suppose I'll be able to find out. I've managed to unlock everything else on my first try though...

                    -The "stand your ground" mechanic is somewhat cool to add some risk/reward (and it quickly gets difficult to hold the point!) , but I also believe it will quickly get old... I play a standard long game and already barely stayed in the zone during the last wave. Buuut better to have than not have it right?

                    -I haven't tested the pulverizer in the demo's hands yet (I suppose it will be marvelous!) but the M16 changes are excellent. I only ever complained about the poor ammo pool, but having it increased AS WELL as the damages is certainly more than I bargained for. Nice work.

                    -The UMP-45 doesn't feel that different but honestly, there's so much you can do with SMGs... It's a nice alternative, doing more damage for a smaller mag... I think I'll pass the P90 even more often now.

                    -The Cryogun however is a reaaal surprise and a reaaal delight! I figured out that it would be more of a tool than a weapon (like the hemogoblin), but instead it deals quite a handful of damage in itself! It's also quite handy, quite cool (he he) to look at and a real pleasure to finally have something just for the survivalist. Bravo.

                    -The Abomination might take the cake for most annoying boss so far ;-) . It can quickly become a real minefields and the kamikaze zeds are painful to deal with! I can't tell if I like it or not at that point, but it certainly feels different and challenging. Just like a boss should.

                    -And finally...the skins are pretty cool as well! I'm a bit bummed that we basically have THREE Krampuses, but otherwise the skins are all pretty nice if a bit wacky for some zeds.

                      I was solo and stopped caring after the 1st wave. I don't think it's worth it for 200 or 400 hundred dosh max (and in solo it's impossible to defend on your own anyway). It's not like we had problem having enough dosh to buy t3 or t4. Maybe if you got a team you know but in a pub... it's not going to work most of the time

                      The Cryogun is really nice. Works a little like the microwave gun. You can easily stop Scrake and fleshpound. It could give a "role" to the "survivalist perk". You can kill cyst/crawler with one "tap". Siren freeze really easily. You can headshot Bloat, Siren and Husk in suicidal with alt-fire. As a solo, you can kill easily Scrake by headshooting with alt-fire (should take 5-6 shots in suicidal). Problem is of course Fleshpound but you can still freeze it.

                      Buying ammo seemed quite cheap too.

                      Reloading time is so bad though....

                      I have a request though. Since Cryogun is for the survivalist, could we please get XP for Survivalist when using this weapon even though we are using another perk ?

                      Siren's skin made me think about Lord Of The Rings

                        UMP45 sounds like it fires twice whenever you tap out a single shot.

                          UMP is ok, it's kinda sad I cant get it with with p90 and kriss, swat would be more usefull for boss. I say, if TWI would increase price to 1500, making it tier 4 but in exchange reduce weigh for p90 and kriss combo it would be nice. Mb also lower fire rate even more but lower recoil too.
