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.

Looking for founders of a fun, tactical and open minded team

  • Looking for founders of a fun, tactical and open minded team

    Edit: I mean Co-Founders and it has nothing to do with money. First I want to get a group going in EU.

    Things in common

    - You aren't looking for realism for realism's sake.

    - You aren't looking for milsim.

    - You aren't an alpha leader and you dislike alpha leaders.

    - You want to be part of a solidary and comradely team.

    - You look first at what you can do for your team and second at what it can do for you.

    - In discussions you want to find the best solution for the team and not to promote your ideas.

    - You have a head-set and are able to communicate in English (you don't have to be a native speaker, being reasonably fluent in English is OK).

    - You like tactics (tactics suited to the game, not real tactics).

    - You are here to have fun playing the game as a team and not for violence, achievements or other selfish interests.

    - You enjoy team-play more than lone-wolfing. It's OK if you want to lone-wolf now and then. You don't have to play with the team, even if they are online at the same time on the same server. But if you feel like joining their squad, you have to help them. You can also quit later to lone-wolf again.

    - You are averse to any kind of fundamentalism, ideologies, racism or blind obedience.

    - You are OK with ad-hoc voting of a team representative in order to discuss with admins, other clans or discipline or exclude troublemakers. And you can step up at any time to represent your team, if need be.

    - You are OK to play for US as well as for North Vietnam in RS2.

    - You like fair play.

    - You never cheat at this game.

    Then let's found a fine bunch of mates to have fun with.

    You should try out bloodbath, I'm an admin for them. Best damn RO2 (also biggest) community, we plan on hosting at least one server for RS2. The community has a large interest in this sequel to Rising Storm. We pretty much cover what you've described. Also if you're not interested, I highly recommend ditching Teamspeak and using Discord. It's 1,000 times better than teamspeak. (I've used both.)

      Just curious...... how are you progressing? Have you created a clan?


      • #4
        Thank you for asking. It seems, there is not much interest.
        I found that CrackClan is much like what I was thinking about, there are time zone differences though. The game is only fun for me when I get a group to communicate and play in a somewhat coordinated way. I'm located in Europe. I'm still open to get a group going.

          My Steam name is : Kingkat54 add me and we can play.


          • #6
            quite busy with work right now, I'll show up this saturday.

            Edit: I have to check my steam name and pm you.

              Come hang out with Pr0nSt4rs - You might find a home with us. We're completely laid back group with a long history, most of us have either run clans, comp teams, ladders and leagues, or gsp's and we're looking for good players to join our community. We like having a good time, we enjoy good tactics and team play but also enjoy just messing around sometimes. We differ in that we identify as a community of players who try not to take the game seriously and just enjoy it for what it is. Everyone has a say, there's no ranking structure, we give out Admin based on activity, maturity, and aptitude. We do have aspirations of running events like PUGS and Tournaments because at the end of the day we all still enjoy the rush of competition.

              Catch us on Discord

                AKA Battlegrounds is the place for you my friend......we have been together since the original Red Orchestra still going strong with clan members from all over the globe.
                We never take it too seriously but love a good game with lots of communication. We have a popular 64 man server and it has many many regular players. Come check us out, we have teamspeak a forum and a steam community group with over 1600 members.

                Come show us your best bits.......

                  I'm actually interested in doing this as well and have actually started a group with a couple of other players. We're shooting currently for 25+, but I'm open to 21+. I'd love to have it be international and want it to be fun. Check us out on Discord at or add me to steam and let's chat. <TC>Carnivore or theinevitability on steam
