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.
  • 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. Breaches of confidentiality and privacy of any sort.
    3. Any form of racism, bigotry or attacks on race, creed or color.
    4. Linking to posts on other forums related to ANY of the above, whether you are the originator or not, without exception.

  • 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 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 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 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 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
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.

        • I am new to red orchestra, and i also agree not only with the op, but to many of you are saying.
          I like the game, but it fealls like it could be so match better if tripwire focus on realism rather than became an average shooter of modern days.
          I love to play with bolt rifles, but im getting tired of being the 0,01 minority of bolt actions soldiers in the server......

              It's based on leveling, correct? What will keep some of the 6 assault players from blindly choosing Mkb's even after the stats are fixed up once the general community has had the chance to unlock these weapons? THAT is the issue with the weapons, not the power of the weapons themselves - that there will simply be too many of them once people start having things unlocked.

              And that's why we want an elite assault class - so that we can keep the same ratio of SMG users to bolts (and therefore the balance) while cutting down significantly on AVT and Mkb users (maybe 1 or 2 at most per 64-player match).

                I agree, it seems like being reasonable is a lost cause on this thread. Like I mentioned in my previous post I'd like to see bolts be a larger % also. But at this point this thread isn't about that. It's about crapping on the devs as much as possible and comparing them to war criminals and then expecting them to come in and apologize. lol.
                Well first, they have deleted two long time supporting members and all of their posts have disappeared, and any mentioning of their names have disappeared as well... (LemoN and Bswearer)

                Secondly, if you would only look at the hundreds of posts in the past from a trillion different threads stating that things can be turned off if people didn't like them, and then we get the game and its a massive mess with promised "rare" weapons being the norm, and server admins unable to turn it off for the sake of realism.

                It's not that we're being whiny crying little kids, its that they PROMISED and compromised with the realism/historically accurate crowd that those weapons and unlocks could be turned off. As you can see, those were either hollow promises or they messed up, and either way, all that is wanted is a simple answer... But as you can tell, no answer so far, and in fact there's been nothing but mockery from Ramm himself saying that we're in the minority of 0.01%, and even if that is sarcasm, its very insulting to those that have helped TWI in the past with making RO:OST with the feed back that was given and promoting the game. I honestly am disgusted by the lack of respect to honest forum members that want to know what the hell happened... When you comment and say the stuff that you do and Ramm with his lame *** comment.

                Edit: For those that are disgusted I suggest this

                      Then how about clarifying just how it isn't simple? You've got half the forum raging here, and it would be nice to know about the system in detail. Especially since we bought the game.

                      Regardless of bugs, the way things are right now gives us a good picture of how the game will eventually look down the road, after the stats are fixed. People are going to rank up, and within a few months, we'll be right back to this point anyway.

                      If there's something that will totally and utterly reverse this fact, then please share it with the community ... especially since much of it is quite pissed off at the moment, as you can obviously tell.

                        All my friends were interested in RO2 without being gamers with a preference for realism, but hearing/reading all the recent news about MKB stuff etc for all assault classes and all that other unlock crap, it has definitely turned them off. And i cant blame them, because i'm starting to lose interest fast too.
                        Same thing here.
                        Cant get them enthousiastic about it because there is no reason to it anymore.

                            That disturbed me when I read his quote the other day.

                            I still respect John (and the rest of TWI) and always have, since the RO mod days mainly because my personal stand on morals and protocols but labeling us as "0.01%" is a considerably low blow.

                            That really hurts public credibility.


                            • lol, well I think all the guys posting in the thread should definitely join that steam group to see how many disgusted folks are out there.

                              Because quite frankly, I read through some of the threads and I see the same names commenting repeatedly in many of them. How many are truly this upset? Judging from the posters I see stepping on TWI's sack constantly on these forums I'd go... ~200 maybe. And how many have bought the game? Vocal minority?

                              And before you call me a suck up, I agree that TWI has not delivered on some things, but they've got to figure out the performance problems and other game breakers before they truly address some of these concerns. I think people are leaving the game more often than not because it doesn't run well, not because its not historically accurate

                              As for the game... despite some design elements I don't agree with I'm having a blast. There is so much to love about it that the annoyances are minor to me. Personally, I don't see that the german assault rifle has changed the dynamics that much. Why didn't everyone complain about the STG in ROOST? (I know it's not historically accurate, I'm just wondering about the game balance complaints.)
