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:
    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.

  • WWAUT - Spooky Tidings And One Last Chance

    Hello everyone!

    With the Summer Sideshow now behind us, the team is working hard towards the next big event! Before going into more detail on that (and some awesome new media to lead the way), we wanted to cover some other topics we know you, the community care deeply about.

    First up, for those who may have missed our teasing, hinting, and outright saying it during the Alienware livestream at E3.... the next community voted weapon is the FN FAL! We’ll have some great new renders of it for you in the days to come along with the other new weapons joining the arsenal. Throughout the course of the Community Classic Weapon poll, several weapons have stood out as runner ups, the almost was, the could have beens. Today we plan to settle that debate in finality. Vote for your favorite Community Classic Killing Floor 1 weapon to return to Killing Floor 2! They won’t be back on the next poll!

    https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1F...LVYdQ/viewform


    Two other topics we’ll be talking more about in the weeks to come are Matchmaking (it’s being overhauled and rebuilt for a better player experience!) and ZedConomy refinements based on player feedback. These will be at the core of several Quality of Life improvements we are working towards for players, with more details to come as development continues. Some of the items we mention over the coming weeks may not make it into the next major update due to the complexity of the work involved, but we want you to know that work is underway!

    And now for something special. This Halloween, the Zeds are dressing up in their Halloween finest and today we present to you the Halloween Clot and Crawlers.





    What could the other Zeds be? Why are they getting all dressed up? Let this be an invitation of the mind if you will, what are your guesses for the theme, setting and Zeds for this Halloween?
    Pretty, what do we blow up first? - Myn Donos

    larger events will be good, now you can do everything of a event on just one day.
    killing X amount of X zeds, finding pieces of something you get a special weapon, skin or something like that is what this kind of events needs

      Summerween already?

      I hope the FN FAL fits a niche that isn't already filled in the game. I think it'd go nicely as a nice Sharpshooter / Commando dual perk weapon
      I make long posts on the KF2 forums to burn time in my easy CS classes :D and I still get bored...

        The "A" version of the crawler is better. Got to show those teeth!

        Scrake has got to be a psycho in a hockey mask like Jason Voorhees style but zombified.
        Maybe have the Cysts dress up as actual human looking zombies.

          Looks like Hillbilly Horror isn't going to happen. On one hand, I'm disappointed about that. On the other hand, classic spooks and whatnot have got me pretty stoked!
          I'm gonna guess that the stalkers or sirens are going to dress up as witches. FP and it's mini-mes will probably go Frankenstein's monster, which makes me think Volter will be gussied up as Frankenstein. I'll be pretty sad if Patty's not some eldritch abomination. Bloats? Idk, some fat, sheet-over-the-head ghost would be pretty funny.

                Damn. I've seen the crawlers without reading the text and thought that'd be a new boss. Some huge-*** walking-creeping plant that entangles everything that gets close.

                  Fire axe or Tommygun, either way I'll be happy!

                  Looking forward to the Halloween event. Evil plants have been one of my favorite things ever since I saw that "Courage the Cowardly Dog" episode.

                    Some people suggested for both variant of plants to be elite and normal version and I would like that too, since you always lazy with elite seasonal zeds.

                      IMHO, I think both the M32 and Thompson should be in the game. We already have a Tier 5 gun in the form of the M99, and it would only be fair if every perk in the game gets one.

                      Personally disappointed that the Mk23 isn't in the poll though, since that was like the best thing to off-perk as a Berserker. (Heck, they could've made it an on-perk Zerker weapon)

                        this poll got weapons that keep losing previous polls, so they wanna settle one from them, and remove others from poll forever(presumably)

                          My main issue with Tier 5 is that if only a certain number of perks gets T5 guns, then it would give the impression that Tripwire is picking favourites. While i get that weapon balance is not an easy task, it's still not ideal to have one T5 gun for one perk while everyone else is stuck with Tier 4. (Honestly, T5 has its own set of problems that belong in another conversation)

                            who said they would not add T5 for other perks? This poll means we gonna get one classic weapon from three and other two will not be suggest again

                              If the crawler doesn't scream "FEED ME SEYMOUR!!" , I won't be playing that event at all.

                              I'll totally play it though

                              Now of course, I'll keep voting for the fire axe...The zerk got a new toy not too long ago, but that weapon was so criminally underlooked in the first game that people needs to seek it's glory in the second one.

                              However FN Fal...Really? When it was nothing more than a quicker shooting AR in KF1? You guys worry me.
