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. 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 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 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
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.

    I think many people respectively understand that part (myself included). The foundation and frame work to the game itself needs to be addressed first and foremost of which TWI is working on and I commend them every step of the way.

    What concerns most folks I believe is what happens after that? Surely some unfortunate comments posted by TWI has hinted in little to no changes whatsoever in the coming future in accordance to many promises that were made, that is what people here are up in arms about.

    I see no problem in having a strong desire for some thoughtful answers to long time Red Orchestra supporters.

      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?

      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.)
      how often did you see the STG44 in ROOST?
      how many people typically had one per game?

        They both were very adamant about calling out Ramm Jaeger ( John Gibson ) over the false advertising that went on for HOS. Both Lemon & Bswearer were invloved with previous TWI advertising, BSwearer went to ( Pax I think ) and wrote up a large review of the game, and Lemon was on a lot back when Bash & Slash was a regular online radio type show that the TWI guys went on to advertise the game.

                    Depended on the map if I recall. Sometimes there could be 4-5 at once... that's off the top of my head.

                      That's all conjecture made on a couple posts. And just because Gibson hasn't shown up in this thread doesn't mean he has no intention of tweaking anything. I've said it once, I'll say it again... we're a little more than two weeks out from release. Relax...

                      And he's given us some answers.. they're just not the answers you want right now. I don't know the guy obviously, but I'm going to make a generalization. The guy's a coder by trade, customer service may not be his strong suit

                      Comment


                      • Quite honestly, if the game is going to remain like this, they ought to make it fair and just take the damned limits off of everything but leaders, tanks and lmg's. It just isn't fair that people with slower connections or computers get stuck with bolties to provide helpless targets for the assault rifle & smg jockies.

                        Hopefully, they come to their senses and lower it to a more reasonable ratio, maybe 6-1, even 5-1. I mean, the historical ratio was 8-1 ...

                          That's interesting, but I never mentioned "John" in particular in my prior post nor the extent of when and where such answers should be granted. Taken a bit out of context.

                          If my post is conjecture than your post is pure assumptions and now neither of us are right with such theory.

                            Well I guess some of my response is to the mood of this thread in general. Basically: I want my answers right now... and I want the game the way I want it.

                            You sound reasonable Kaiser, not necessarily directed at you in particular.

                              You seem reasonable yourself, I appreciate it.

                              I never try to take an extreme to one end or the other of debatable topics but simply wish to seek a conclusion that can make both sides happy. While I agree with many aspects of this thread and do desire some alternative game play options, I still believe all hope is not lost.

                              If any thing we have an excellent modding community if worst comes to worst. I'm sure those who frequent this thread (myself included) will be generally pleased with whatever quality modifications they can implement in the future if it needs be.

                              • As MrHat has said, it has only been two weeks since the game is released. Sure for some of us it seems much longer than that when you are hoping for some definite answer, but it really has only been two weeks.
