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.

Global Rules

  • 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.

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!

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.

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.

      inb4 they announce it in the next couple days and render my input irrelevant
      i mean, all the previous betas took a month before they were released live.

      Only this event had an anomaly where 1st phase lasted a week rather than expected 2, and this whole silence from community mods makes it bit unsettling.

        To be fair these betas, as far as I can recall, were earlier than expected. I'd advise everyone to chill out because the update is coming and while some are wondering "Where is it?!?" no definitive dates were set so it's purely a case of it'll be available when it's ready.

          This is usually the point where they announce the final deadline ahead of time, so, yeah I'd say it is a bit unsettling lol

            Could be a 3rd beta test. They are ironing bugs so I'd rather have them take their time. Hopefully they will add more to the Vault boxes. I keep getting the scar woodland skin in field tested, or battle scarred. I've already gotten it in mint but still keep getting the two variations more than other weapons.

              Maybe it's just bad luck or something but I feel like I have that same problem with just about everything when it comes to the Vault -- I am not joking when I say I used over 200 crates before actually coming across another precious skin, despite there being several tiers' worth of them already thrown into the system. Rather, I'd just get the same exact accessories over and over, like the purple camo or a face paint I'd never use (seriously, why do those exist) and it would get to the point where I actually didn't have it in me to bother recycling it all like, jesus it's ridiculous

              I know I'm not the first to complain but at the same time I'm not sure what they'd do about it -- I've never really cared all that much about the skins and stuff anyways since I play on console and therefore there's much less room for marketability or anything of the sort... like, virtually no room for that matter, so, why bother messing with 'em if it's just a waste of money at the end of the day lol

              And yeah, that's what the whole point of the Vault skins IS but I'm just generally indifferent at this point. At first I thought the Vault as a concept was vaguely interesting but I quickly got tired of it. Now I'm just annoyed because EVERY TIME I TRY TO SCROLL PAST THE VAULT TAB IT PAUSES AND REFUSES TO LET ME EXIT THE PAGE UNTIL IT IS DONE PROCESSING WHATEVER UPDATES TO MY VAULT CURRENCY IT HAS TO GO THROUGH -- hence when I had that bug with the random 50 crates thing happen, IT WOULDN'T LET ME LEAVE THE PAGE UNTIL IT HAD SPAWNED EVERY SINGLE CRATE, AND IT WAS LAGGY AS ALL HELL, TOO.

              And I DEFINITELY know I'm not the first to have that issue since I've heard people complain about that a million times as well, and I'm pretty sure they said it was fixed but it still doesn't let me exit that tab in-game, 50 crates or no 50 crates, so it's still irritating.


              • #52
                The Vault (since it saves dosh) should allow you to buy skins for dosh rather than RNG each crate. That would solve the repeat RNG stuff and give players goals to strive for in buying a skin they want. Even if it's just Vault skings. As Martin above mentions the odds of the RNG seem worse than they used to be in opening Vault crates. It would also make crafting a better option to say X amount of crafting material could get you this item. Even if it's just bland weapon color changes. A totally blue pistol or rifle would be better than getting the same skins again and again.

                  I mean you don't know me but I started with KF1 before playing KF2 but I wholeheartedly agree with that sentiment -- And I still think that the point where it really went wrong was the 2017 Twisted Christmas update, or at least after that patch it seemed to go pretty quickly downhill with the rapid content additions. Personally I thought that update was still one worth remembering for the most part, but it was also the one where they added the Abomination (I don't think he became an official boss yet, but even just the initial conceptualization of him as "Krampus" gives me ptsd flashbacks).

                  After that everything from weapon balance (it became exceptionally clear once they added upgrade options) to perk balance (Zerk was always op but Medic got even more buffs) to the mechanics of the zeds themselves (cough cough, EDARs, cough cough, ESPECIALLY TRAPPERS, cough cough, ZEDS SPAWN WITHOUT WARNING AND TELEPORT ALREADY AS IS SO THE FACT THAT EDARS CAN ALSO STUN YOU COMPLETELY WITHOUT WARNING IN A GAME THAT CURRENTLY CONSISTS OF 50% RUNNING, 50% KILLING, IS PRETTY UPSETTING, cough choke) just started to lose integrity over time with each new change. I might be a little biased but I really did try to keep my patience with the game for a while, but now even I find it a bit challenging.

                  At this point I've little faith in much of a recovery, though the whole premise of objective modes in general is somewhat promising since they're at least making the effort and indeed putting out the product. Not sure if I'll like where it goes though. But maybe that's just me.

                    No, that doesn't change it back to the way it used to be. Even with toggle sprint on (god help me if I ever have to turn that off), you didn't used to have to come to a full stop to crouch.
