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.

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.

  • really hate the annoying..and outta place

    nope, dont like me at all
    Suic-15+ , HOE-20+, and most popular custom maps.

    Yeah mate me too. Tried to give them a go, not kneejerk rage but damn. Almost every single death is because i got blasted to hell by those bloody backpack robots. And if I'm commando or slinger, they seems to eat up a whole mag, i just dont know if there is any redeeming quality. They look cool and idea is good, but damn do they suck to fight!


    • #3
      I swear I'm the only one who likes them.
      [I]No he tra


      • #4
        That's so true.....

        A EDAR Blaster can fast kill a 100hp player who has no armor in one mag, that's too stronger than husk.

        This patch just want you keep moving nonstop, because you standing still, you die unwittingly.

          No, I do too! I just don't like their inclusion... Even though Tripwire confirmed they are part of an unrevealed portion of the lore, it just feels odd to have them among the zed legions.

          I believe since they got nerfed a bit, they became way funnier to deal with. They are challenging...But so were most of the zeds when they were introduced. You just need to find the right strategy to find them.

          However, I believe they should have their own "spawn pool" , instead of replacing the husks.

            Im probably on a minority side, but I feel like im playing a different game than everyone else when people say they're OP or whatever.

            Frequently there's some zeds between me and EDARS that blocks all their ranged atatcks.
            ...but when there is a clear line of sight, you can easily dodge the attacks with some sidestepping. Their rockets and lasers are pretty slow.
            ...and when they do get me by surprise, I usually react fast enough to dodge and probably take about 20-30 damage or so, and thats it.

            Trappers are pretty much non existent since they got their snare range nerfed drastically.

            Sure they're also a bit durable and can dodge, but I dont have much trouble killing them either. Just aim at their chest, follow with your aim when they dodge, and hit their cores when its exposed. Honestly being surrounded by a group of stalker or crawlers are much more scary.

            That said I agree when people say they're off the place...why high tech humanoid robots all of a sudden? Who's making them? Patty? Why couldn't it be just, say, rocket husks, trapper siren, or gunner rioters?


            • #7
              Agreed. I will say, they are much better than they were during the beginning go the beta. That said, they're still cheap as hell sometimes. We already had annoying zeds covered with stalkers and husks. I'm trying my hardest to like them and this update in general because I don't think there is any realistic chance that they're going to go anywhere.

              As AleFlippy said, they need their own spawn pool. There is no reason that they should be spawning as stalkers, they're way too dangerous. They have 1007 hp on HoE. Stalkers by contrast have, 75 hp. So we're going to have zeds with over 10x the health of stalkers spawning in the same pool with stalkers?

              They're moving in the right direction in being fun to fight but they still have work to do. Lastly, I agree they look out of place. In a horror survival coop game that was advertised with the gore system the EDARs should look scary and be something like zombie cyborgs rather than the toys they look like now.


              • #8
                I hate them. Cybernetic Zed freaks would have been more fitting. Like an armless Zed with rocket launchers painfully grafted to his shoulders would have been better. They just look so out of place.

                And on top of that the suckers are built like a small framed woman and yet they can take damage like a FP. Makes no sense. As a Gunslinger they eat up your bullets. I usually let other team members like Demos or FB deal with them. Headshots are useless and even when you blow their head off they usually keep coming until you empty a lot more bullets into them. I could understand this level of bullet resistance if they looked like they were wearing armor out of the WH40K series but they're not. They're wimpy looking bullet sponges and that just makes them annoying. I'm glad I didn't play the betas with them. From what I here they really really sucked.

                  If they made them ZOMBIE CYBORG ROBOTS they'd be cool (along with a few balance issues) but just base robots are BORING and have NO place running with zombies.
