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.

  • Fun Facts That Could Provide Useful

    New list that I keep updating can be found right here.

    1st.
    All Medic Guns Make a Ping sound when they spot an injured target.

    The Ping sound indicates that you have locked onto an injured target and should you shoot at them, the dart will be homing, which means that you can shoot it in a wicked arc and it connects as long as you do not break the lock.


    2nd.
    Melee Bash (Guns) will punt Scrakes and Fleshpounds back into a stumble just like a succesful parry. EVEN if they are raging. (Tested it out and even if FP is red with hate, he will stumble) So if you see a FP or a Scrake going for someone, go Bash it. (Don't stick too close afterwards though)

    However there are certain attacks that won't be cancelled by the bash and they will ignore subsequent bashes for a duration, so time those bashes right!
    (Credit to Nenjin)

    Saw blades fired from the Eviscerator will stumble Scrakes as well if you land a headshot.

    3rd.
    The Medic pistol has a weight of 1 and only costs 200 dosh. Always buy one, no matter your perk, so that you can heal teammates from a distance.
    (Credit to Paronine)


    4th.
    Munk's Berzerker Tips
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TkQs...ure=youtu.be&a
    (Credit to Munk & RTMelissa)


    5th.
    Support & Commando Grenades do immense damage on Fleshpounds just like in KF1 try to reserve those after wave 4/6 (normal/long) This is because both of them deal explosive damage. (Note that Support's grenades have much smaller radius and also release fragments, so these may not be as efficient as Commando grenades.)
    (Credit to kliziflip15)


    6th.
    Scrakes aka big chainsaw guys, (Quick call Sc/Scr) rage after their health drops below a certain threshold and they will rage on forever unlike Fleshpounds. Scrakes gain a massive speed boost during their rages and will outrun any class in the game. Do not shoot at them unless you have the time to finish them off.

    Fleshpounds aka big yellow/red guys, (Quick call FP) rage at random periods of not being in combat and if dealt significant damage in a short period of time. Fleshpounds gain an immense speedboost and damage boost during their short rages as well as the ability to mow over lesser zeds.
    Unlike Scrake, Fleshpounds will stop raging after a short period of time or when they attack something. And for this reason Fleshpounds can be kited much more reliably than Scrakes by welding doors and forcing them to bash them.

    Both the Scrake and the Fleshpound can have their rage cancelled for a short period of time by Berzerkers EMP grenades, these grenades should also be spared for either of these after wave 4.

    7th.
    Consider using the 9mm Handgun to conserve ammo (and thus money) on trash zeds on all difficulties. This will help you reach those Tier4 Weapons much faster.
    (Credit to Trotskygrad)

    8th.
    Consider scavening the map for extra weapons/ammo/kevlar while the waves are close to ending. This is an easy way to get easy extra income as long as you can carry more weapons.


    9th.
    Armament skill (lvl 10) for Medic works with every tick of the Medic Grenade, Which means that each tick will repair 2% Armor, all the way up to 20% total (Armor Increasing stats/skills greatly benefit from this repair as the 2% is based around max armor instead of a solid 100 armor)
    (Credit to TerraMaw)


    10th.
    As a Medic (or a Berzerker), try to tank Scrakes and Fleshpounds for your more squishy teammates. A Medic has large amounts of armor which means they can survive longer against bigger Zeds. (and Berzerkers have an inbuilt 5% damage resistance and can parry without losing any damage potential unlike other classes who need to swap to a knife for example.)
    (Credit to rodrigoxm49 & Nenjin)


    11th.
    Consider healing others with the Syringe Tool whenever it's safe. Not only does it give a more potent healing than when healing yourself, but you'll also get money and medic experience. Your teammate might also heal you for the more potent amount when he sees what you did

    -stats on t3 AK12 and t4 medic gun are exactly the same, medic gun has the healing capability and almost no recoil...ak12 has fire-mode selection instead

    -m4 (t3 supports shotgun) sux and is the worst t3 weapon of any class inferior even to medics t3 shotgun

    -commando has 2 skills that are exactly the same but in unlock in different tiers and are based on firearate (which is mostly irrelevant since people can use macros to achieve the same thing regardless of fire-mode selection)

    -game is great

          1. Just like in KF1, siren screams destroy grenades. Hold onto your grenades until any nearby sirens have been dealt with. (You can nade a siren before it starts screaming, though.)

          2. Saw blades fired from the Eviscerator will stumble Scrakes if you land a headshot.

          3. The Medic pistol has a weight of 1 and only costs 200 dosh. Always buy one, no matter your perk, so that you can heal teammates from a distance.

          4. When the two Flesh Pounds show up together, it may be wise to get them to chase the team through a doorway. Only one FP can fit through a door at once, which causes them to line up behind each other to get through it. This makes it easier to take one down before the other can reach anybody.

            Updated with some good tips from Paronine, all the others seem like things people should know quite fast.

            (Cept the weapon stats part from kliziflip, but that's not really helpful gameplay wise unless you really plan to grab an offperk weapon)

            PS. Do the sawblades stumble FP's as well?

                  I've tried, and I don't think they do. Gonna experiment more with it to confirm.

                    You can sprint backwards and change direction with only a slight pause. (Credit to Nenjin)
                    20% movement increase from sprinting? Gunslinger, medic and zerk can outrun that without sprinting.

                      I probably shouldn't post this here, but I see too many people doing this even on higher difficulties, so here goes nothing:

                      DO NOT SHOOT THE HEADLESS BLOAT!
                      These guys have TONS of health, and when you blow their head off - they'll just bleed out and die eventually themselves, and this will most probably happen faster than you can reduce their HP to 0 with your weapon anyway, so you're just wasting your bullets!

                      Which leads me to the second tip:

                      TAG HEADLESS ENEMIES WITH 1 SHOT!
                      When you see a headless enemy walking around in it's last moment before it'll fall to the ground, and you have nothing to do with it lacking it's head, then just shoot it 1 time with any of your class weapons (the one with the cheapest ammo, better). Why would you do that? You will get FULL experience from this enemy's death when it finally bleeds out!

                        Move left or right and attack with melee weapon to preform wide melee attack that can damage multiple zeds. Works will all weapons

                          Your second tip is exactly why people are shooting headless bloats, although if they keep shooting it... okay.

                            I had thought of including this since Munk's intro in RTMelissa's channel, but decided to not to.

                            I just included the Munk video here since Munk's post has dropped way too much.

                              Medic doesn't get any damage bonuses and his weapon damage will fall off.

                              So you're saying to kill steal.

                              Yes, it does matter since a headless zed is practically dead and the person who gave it a death sentence should get the xp.
