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.

  • 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!

  • 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.

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
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.

  • increase weight capacity for all classes

    with the new weapon upgrade system. we could benefit from more weight capacity in certain set ups that normally make the system void in it's potential.

  • #2
    since this update you can pretty much carry 1 weapon at a time.


    • #3
      for some set ups. it hasn't messed with most of my groupings, but with the sniper it'd make much more sense to get rid of the m9 and have a weapon list for sidearms...but upgrading does help the m9, and make it slightly more useful. except we are still forced to keep in our slots and i don't always want to use a pistol, especially that one.

        easy to use now for headshots, kinda like it alot more now and wish i had some neon skins for it.


        • #5
          ...I don't think you truly got the idea behind the added weight. It's probably the closest we get to a "trade-off" for the upgrade we're choosing. Which means that there is still a very small reason to pick up a T4 weapon instead of consistently upgrading your T1 gun.

          That's still poorly implemented. But hey, it's something...


          • #6
            I think the weapons should be heavier, and when you upgrade them, they become lighter, so you can have more weapon slots.
            If I was upgrading a weapon, I would choose a stronger but also a lighter material

            The new sniper should be tier 4, and when upgraded to tier 5, it’s the same but lighter
            I think the upgrade system works well on endless, but on short to long games, you do end up having 1 upgraded weapon on the boss fight

            -Side note. I think it would be better if the sights on a gun were added to the weapon when upgrading

              then maybe the upgrades should add more damage.

                Nah. Some weapons are already ludicrously powerful when fully upgraded.

                There's just no point playing a game that's too easy.


                • #9
                  ya, but you are paying two three, and even 4 times the cost to fully upgrade some guns. it then makes sense to just spend that on another one and fill out your set up the usual way. the upgrade system is pointless then because you are inhibited by reload times when you could just switch and keep playing.

                    with the new scrake/fleshpound buff. no the weapons are not powerful enough. the balance has been utterly ruined, and i find the game a big yawn now, because its just obnoxious and not even fun anymore.


                    • #11
                      it used to be fun when a scrake round would start, now its like...go figure, more scrakes...the game has been ruined. the update was cool at first, but its become a boring obstacle of nonsense. its like playing chess against a computer that can spawn queens whenever it needs to.

                      i find it pointless to upgrade guns because you'll die anyway, unless you play one way, and do the same thing over and over again. i find it pointless to go to a trader to get something i want to play with because i'll just die to a fleshpound that walks around a corner or 3 scrakes that spawn when i was already fighting 3 scrakes.

                              1)I'm not the one who liked my comment. I'm just not THAT pompous.

                              2)Sadly no, I'm not British. I come from a small land in the middle of Europe called Belgium. You know, the land where Bioticslab is located... Maybe I'm actually a zed?

                              3)Obviously, you give a damn about my "troll" since you needed TWO posts to answer me. And you're damn salty about it too.

                              4)Reporting? HA HA HA HA HA. Because you think Tripwire even waste their time removing petty posts? If it was the case, you wouldn't see topics about a scientist class popping all the time...Nor your ridiculous whining.

                              5)Look, I've been playing video games since I was litteraly three years old. I've played accross all the generations of consoles, because I became passionnate enough to get back to the generations I've missed. I got to know the litteral pain of having to restart the game from the beginning because you fell into a pit. This followed me back to this very day, where I got my *** kicked online in fighting games, got my *** kicked in roguelikes due to a missed shot, got my *** kicked in strategy games because my opponent built a better army while I tried to focus on my economy.

                              I got my *** kicked plenty of times by video games themselves or by the players. And I freaking enjoyed it. Because as a whole, that's what makes it enjoyable...And what allows you to get better. If you're didn't get that by then, maybe you shouldn't be playing video games at all.
