[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.

    • Beta 2 Start 5/28/2019, Beta 2 End on final release



    Beta 2 for this update contains adjustments and bug fixes from the Beta 1 feedback! We appreciate your input and thank you very much for it.

    Addressed Community Feedback

    As mentioned in the 2018 Killing Floor 2 ‘State of the Game’ our goal is to bring to the community a continued stream of QOL changes for each update throughout the year. Please continue to report any QOL changes you believe should be added to the game by submitting your feedback in the ‘general’ section on our official forums at: https://forums.tripwireinteractive.c...illing-floor-2

    Balance
    • Weapons
      • Husk Cannon
        • Damage modifier rate increased from 70% to 80% per charge, effectively increasing the final charge damage from 450% to 500% of the base.
      • Freezethrower
        • Unequip animation plays 23% faster.
        • Spare ammo capacity increased from 400 to 500.
        • 1st weapon upgrade damage for ice shards decreased from 28 to 23.
        • 2nd weapon upgrade damage for ice shards decreased from 36 to 26.
      • Seal Squeal
        • Unequip animation plays 25% faster.
        • Equip animation plays 15% faster.
      • Hemoclobber
        • Dart charge ammo consumption reduced from 40 to 30 for light, bash, and heavy attacks.
        • Spare ammo capacity increased from 9 to 12.
        • Starting spare magazines upon purchase increased from 0 to 1. This means that upon purchase, it will start with 3 spare rounds instead of 0.
        • Gas explosion damage reduced from 250 to 200.
        • Heal amount from gas explosion reduced from 50 to 30.
      • C4
        • Starting spare magazines upon purchase reverted from 0 back to 1. This means that upon purchase, it will start with 1 spare round instead of 0.
        • Spare ammo capacity increased from 1 to 2.
        • Inventory group prioritization set to 0. This will shift the C4 to a lower slot under the Secondary section of the Inventory.
      • Transport Carryables (Gear / Data Pad)
        • Bludgeon damage reduced from 150 to 100.



    Designer Note:
    We received a lot of feedback from the Beta 1 summer survey, so each adjustment was made with suggestions and concerns in mind from the community.

    First off, the Husk Cannon felt more effective firing quick, individual shots instead of fully charged ones. Our adjustment should allow a fully charged shot to deal as much damage as five quick shots.

    The previous adjustments to the Freezethrower helped it play better, but unfortunately, there was a bug with the alt-fire that caused the shards to clump up rather than disperse. Now, the shards should disperse properly. Alongside this change, we also received a lot of feedback that it did not have enough ammunition and the swap out speed felt a tad too slow for players to effectively swap and combo with other weapons. The above changes should help address these concerns with the Freezethrower and allow it to perform much better than its previous iterations. We tuned down the weapon upgrade damage values for just the shards to compensate for the increased number of shards launched.

    The Seal Squeal had slow swap speeds as well as the inability to explode harpoons while reloading. Unfortunately, the latter is trickier to implement in the given time frame and is something we will look into for a future patch. As for now, we improved the swap speeds to give players an easier time switching into and out of the Seal Squeal.

    A lot of feedback requested more ammunition for the Hemoclobber, so we added an extra spare ammo capacity and gave an extra magazine upon purchase to help alleviate some concerns about ammunition. At the same time, its poison gas explosion damage and heal felt too effective, so we adjusted those values down a bit to compensate for the extra ammunition. We also reduced its dart consumption amounts to further improve its feasibility in healing other players. Our goal with these changes is to help improve the Field Medic aspects of the weapon without overpowering the Berserker aspects.

    C4 received further tunes to improve its flexibility. It felt too restrictive to only have two C4, so we bumped up the spare ammo capacity to allow one more. We also reverted a previous change and allow players to have 2 C4 at their disposal upon purchase. We also received a lot of concerns about its group prioritization as a lot of players switch from their primary over to their secondary pistol to take care of Zeds and having C4 at the top hindered that a bit.

    Lastly, we reduced the damage inflicted by the gear and data pad as the pair provided an excessive amount of damage, especially in the hands of Berserkers.
    • Perks
      • Commando
        • Level 20 Hollow Point Rounds
          • Damaged reverted from 20% back to 30%.
          • Updated text description to reflect the change.



    Designer Note:
    We want to send a big thank you to everyone who shared their thoughts and feedback on the damage reduction. We decided to revert the change and further explore options to improve the design of the Eat Lead and Hollow Point Rounds Perk skills. We want to create a better standing for the two Perk skills. We received a lot of great suggestions, and to give us ample time to properly test and configure any new changes, we will not be pushing out any changes to Eat Lead or Hollow Point Rounds for the summer patch.

    As always, we’d like to hear the community's feedback on any of these changes. You can do so by visiting and posting in the ‘general’ section on the official Tripwire Interactive forums at: https://forums.tripwireinteractive.c...illing-floor-2

    Glad to see more work being done between Hollow Point & Eat Lead!

    Also I feel the quickheal exploit with transport kinda says something about how difficult that objective can be when you're so slow, so maybe buff the speed or even remove the penalty altogether because there are times where it feels next to impossible to grab the thing and survive (it also feels very similar to the drone objectives in that you're protecting a slow-moving V.I.P. except you do it 3 times in a row. IMO reduced or no speed penalty kinda makes it feel more CTF-esque).

    So the Xmas Zeds on Santa's Workshop are intentional, then? Are there plans to have the other event zeds only appear on their corresponding maps? I feel it does well for world-building and gameplay variance, giving this nice feeling that the Zeds aren't the same everywhere, even outside of events.

      I 100% agree with what you mean, other than just having the different ‘vibes’ per map with the same zeds, have a visually new threat to fight against each game - Christmas zeds for ‘Santa’s workshop and Krampus lair, Summer zeds for Airship and Tragic kingdom and Halloween zeds for Monster ball
      Would be wicked! 👍

        Out of the blue, but are there any plans for changes to the character roster?, with, Rae, Dar, ms foster and Santa getting alphabetically categorised like the rest?
        Doesn’t matter, but if that’s the case alphabetically it should look like this right?:
        1. (R.Alberts T.Banner R.Briar)
        2. (C.Briar D.a.r M.Foster)
        3. (Ms.Foster R.Higgins O.Jaegorhorn)
        4. (A.Larive B.Masterson C.Masterson)
        5. (D.Neals B.Santa D.Skully)
        6. (A.Strasser H.Tanaka)

          Is Hell on Earth harder now or am I just bad? I'm able to solo HoE for most maps but these objective maps are kickin' my arse! I can only get myself to wave 8 on steamfortress 2 and most of the time is spent running around in circles cuz I can only weld so much before the slap party comes to play. (it also feelsbadman when I do said objective with no ammo left and I gotta kill 5 rioters, 5 bloats and a handful of husks) I love objective mode though its pretty fun and has the best time-spent-to-zeds-murdered ratio. I think objective mode has alot of potential and opens alot of doors for the future of KF2. (love the story arcs between maps, I love more lockheart and I think Tripwire's creativity really shines with the steampunk/fantasy stuff.)

            Correct me if I'm wrong, but I'm pretty sure the original damage value bonus of Hollow Point pre-summer beta was +25% (unless the text description was wrong to begin with). I just find it amusing that we go into this summer beta nerfing the skill to only +20%, and now we're going into beta 2 with it being stronger than the original value (+30% instead of +25%). So...Commando essentially just received a buff.

              It’s not just you. I too mainly play solo HoE and my expierence is largely the same - most of the gameplay consists of running around in circles, welding a marginal amount and then running again. The gear/data pad objectives are the polor opposite - it’s easy to simple run past all the zeds and finish the wave. The various defence-style objectives lie somewhere in between.

              Objectives like the welding are inherently flawed for solo, with the way zeds spawn (always meant to be surrounding you, around the next corner, etc). And especially on HoE with how fast they move you have next to no time for a proper weld. If you haven’t tried the objective mode in multiplayer yet, it feels a lot more balanced throughout all the objective types since players can spread around and do what needs to be done.

              I feel like they are intended for multiplayer and don’t expect this to change.

                If I remember right it always increased damage by 30%, but for some reason the skill said it was 25%.
                So more of a typo/bug fix.

                  This is what my files say, and I haven't opted into the beta at all. Seems like a typo was indeed the case. Recoil is handled by ModifyRecoil() in KFPerk_Commando and is not related to the perk skill's StartingValue or MaxValue but instead on a getter function that returns the default value of HollowPointRecoilModifier, which is 0.5, so that part is correct.

                  Comment


                  • #10
                    Correct, in beta 1 we corrected the typo. It's been 30% for a while. Check out the User Interface Bug Fixes list from beta 1 to see the rest of the description fixes. https://forums.tripwireinteractive.c...-kicking-brass

                    Obejective mode is more balanced towards multiplayer. Best bet is to have one of the faster perks carry it, bonus if you get a medic to buff the carrier.

                      Any chance of giving the game away for free? The -67% discount or whatever there was recently wasn't successful, there's still about a 5% chance of not running into trolls on public servers... Would be nice to reduce that to zero no?

                        There's no way to maintain free updates while also making the game free... Otherwise you'd need a **** load of microtransactions, which is something gamers are rarely keen about.

                        So that's a huge no-no from me. I'd rather see a lowered price and maybe (just MAYBE) some purchasable DLCs as a compensation.


                        Or you know, better yet : keep things as they are. And try to make some friends to play along with you.

                          It kinda self maintains right now with the community market, since with every transaction the kf2 receives part of the money and so does valve because... valve.
                          And looking at the invoice, kf2 takes double the fee than valve does for each transaction.

                            Hm I thought my question was unmistakably facetious but okay o.0

                            So is everyone cool with the game being dead and Cube being the only map anyone plays now then?

                            That's what happens when Boom waves and EDARs that can immobilise players through a crowd of scrakes till you're dead make close quarter maps unplayable...

                            Open maps are basically worthless as well because it soon gets to the point where your game engine teleports one solo stalker after another behind the players who are carrying the instant they press fire or reload to ensure that all of their armour is chipped away in order that they're basically just standing around naked waiting to die instantly from a husk fireball that comes out of nowhere from 3 miles away at the wrong time

                            So the game's been reduced now from having about ten playable maps and around half of the players able to hold their own to Cube and SuperPerkLevelling and 90% trolls who either don't realise they can't handle HOE at all or are there to rub that fact in the faces of whatever vet players haven't just quit yet

                            Do you guys even play your own game? Tripwire? Or do you still just chill playing hard on Farmhouse and call it a day on updates after that? That's what I think to be honest because if you played your own game to any decent level you'd realise how TNT stalkers are basically about as bad as FPS gameplay gets...

                            Sorry but if you guys could play at a decent level you would have fixed dozens of these issues before EA was over and not allowed any of this more recent foolishness to creep in... Do the developers want the game to die? Can they not wait to be reassigned?

                            So, will anything ever be done? Or do I start trolling as well? Gunslinger is my main but I'm happy to spend my games running backwards spamming Evis blades or forwards spamming 501 medic farts at my feet on endless like all the trolls do if those are features rather than bugs?
                            You were killed by an ooold man! ... With an ooold gun

                              Good afternoon, I'd like to ask. What about killing floor calamity? There were no updates, departures from any device are just a bunch. Play is not possible... Will there be any updates or anything else? Very sad, if not. The game is now worse than the first Killing Floor, bugs and crashes tons. And you need to pay for it as much as for the first part. That's very unfair. I am sorry that I write here, but in the forum of the game, you didn't have a single message for bugs and errors about the game.
