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 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.
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.

      Props to Rising Storm and Tripwire teams for creating an awesome one of a kind experience!

        Very nice.

          By the current state BF4 it is not hard to win that fight.

          Not that RO2 was a game that had a good release, but RO2/RS is a very good example how developers and the community can work together to save a game worth saving. This is something EA has yet to learn.

            Thanks, this was interesting.

                  It's nice for the Rising Storm developing team to get some industry recognition for their devotion to the RS 'expansion.'

                  The unanswered, subliminal question for the RS team in the video is "we love it, what's next"?

                    i realy like the way they explain it, like you realy feel like achieving something when playing ro 2/rs i realy think so too.

                    i was a die hard battlefield fan back when it came out and battlefield 2 blew my ****ing mind.

                    battlefield 3 was just not doing it for me i realy disliked it and stop playing the serieses newer games, but i still play the heck out of the project reality mod for bf2 wich is so amazing.

                    a good holiday to you tripwire and community, looking forward to the year 2014 with you guys and the stuff you pruduce(tripwire and community)

                        Great video, thanks for sharing. My clanmates told me BF4 is way more buggy than RO2 was at launch (17 patches so far and still hearing about important issues like 'unable to join' or 'unable to launch'), and nothing compared to RS of course. It can't be modded, and server admins can't even kick/ban idiots when they have an official server (and official is the only way to get a population because everyone use auto-match). I'm not gonna spend 70 bucks on it. I'll wait for it to be in some humble bundle in a few years XD.

                          yes, at least they have updates, one million people playing, a community with a lot of features inside the battlelog browser, squad system working inside the game, maps that will last longer, vehicles, advertsiment everywhere, way better customization of your weapon and loadout, the engine of bf4 provides a way better immersion than what we have in ro2, with all those details on the enviorment (destroying walls, moving water, winds moving the dust, etc)

                          the only thing that ro2 wins against bf4 is the price. And its not from EA (the demon)
                          and the shooting part I agree that is more fun and realistic inside RO2.

                          But ro2 is not comparable to bf4. RO2 was almost dead few months behind.
                          Its have been 2 years now since the release and we didnt get our vehicles yet. a lot of players stopped playing when they realize that Ro1 and DH had more features than the new RO2.
                          Or most of them didnt felt bothered to buy a new pc to play RO2, because the ro1 and DH are more fun than the ro2

                          bf4 have so much oxigen pumping. RO2 could get some.

                            Actually this thread is already made impossible!
                            RO2 cannot be compared to BF4.


                            im a RO2 lover. but i have to admit

                            off course, one thousand infinit time:

                            BF4 wins, flawless victory!

                            i dont know what those 3 wackos are talking about.

                              Well BF4 and RO2 both faced (BF4 still facing) a not so unfamiliar situation. Both games got most likely released too early. Probably for different reasons but the result was pretty much the same. RO2 faced obviously some hard times but I think its fair to say it got over it. The way how RO2 got over those hard times should be a good example for the people at EA and DICE.

                              RO2 managed to fix iself by bringing back the beta and both the devs and the community putting their heads together. A lot of people (including me) are not so mad about the fact BF4 was (and still is) messed up but by the sometimes pathetic reactions from EA and DICE. Its pretty ironic when they release a stupid scope for a pistol (really?) and 2 weeks of 50% XP as a sorry. Its even more ironic when the game was and still is far from being fixed.
