Forum Rules

  • 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.

  • Up to 10 emoticons are allowed in a post
  • Political discussions are prohibited.

  • 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.

  • 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!

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.

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.

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.

  • your greed has no limits?

    Why Mrs Foster is pay character? In all game is only 2 female characters anyway. Just not enough money from other casuals or any other reasons?

    And for summer event I can get cuperpunk Mrs Foster costume, but I can't use it cuz I'll not suppose to buy Mrs Foster character. That game is anyway expensive + you anyway having lot of money from all that tons of skins.

    And you think that's not enough, and adding pay DLC character , that is only total 3rd female.

    Your greed has no limits?

    Killing PayFortress 2 Global Skinsive

      Expensive? Please. This game is $30; $40 if you buy the deluxe pack with it. For a game asnpopular as it is, that's quite cheaper compared those running at $60 or above.

        Mrs. Foster was a paid DLC character in Killing Floor 1.

        You've made 3 thread posts crying about this. How old are you?


        • #5
          1st: Big updates that are basically free.
          2nd: 3 female characters in the game. Yeah, so what? Are you a SJW who's going to sue TW because of patriarchy?
          3rd: If you are *****ing about Ms Foster why aren't you *****ing about DJ Skully aswell? And it's a GOOD THING TO KNOW that the paid-only things are just COSMETIC and won't affect gameplay. Also, it's their game they'll do what they want, and you being the ***** you are won't change anything.

            Since you're obviously some uneducated 7 year old toddler, let me give you a hand.

            You're hardly ever going to get something for "free" in your life. We can be more than happy that TW is willing to share those incredible updates with us for "free".
            But still, TW has to make money somehow. They can not keep producing those huge updates for us if they don't earn money, good will does not pay bills. They have to pay their employees just like any other company too.

            Also, nobody is forcing you to buy the DLC characters/cosmetic items. But for me just like many others, I will always keep buying those from time to time as long as I know those updates will pay for themselves that way. Also they're a nice addition to the game, I really love them.

            Get outta here lol.

              Let me give you a little perspective. A software engineer in the US makes (roughly) $100k a year (although that varies by experience and region). So it costs $1M just to pay a small team of 10 engineers for 1 year (not sure how big TWI is but I'm sure they're not smaller than that). And that's not counting all the other employees that need paychecks too. And there are a lot of expenses beyond just salaries, too. To keep the lights on in even a small software business, you need at least millions of dollars a year. So yes, they need the money from DLC, skins, etc. They only charge for cosmetic items, and they give the actual game-changing content in free updates, not to mention the game itself is an extremely reasonable $30. So stop crying.

                Here's an idea... Don't buy Ms. Foster. I mean, you don't even have to buy Ms. Foster on principle that it doesn't add or subtract to the game play, it's just one of those trinkets you buy "just because".

                Phew, that went well. Point is, where were you when weapon updates in KF1 were paid DLCs?


                • #9
                  Good........ banned. I had a lot typed out here on my feelings about this person's rants. But then I decided, "What's the point?" Hope the doorknob is ok! ;-)

                      A guy complaining about greed, and actually demanding free content released 1 year and half after game release... well, thats something
                      I am sure he works for his employer for free cuz, you know, *greed*

                      The only thing i can agree with - We could really use more females in basic/free roster.
