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.

    -The tournament has become international-friendly, thus we expanded our choice of servers to France (EU), Seattle (USA), New York (USA) and Sydney (Australia).

    Link doesn't work.

    Is this actually backed by Tripwire Interactive? You have their logo under the sponsored thing along with that random server host. Could we get someone from TWI staff to confirm?

      Link works now, we had to post the other topic earlier.
      Yes we had contact with Tripwire earlier and got their permission on everything we do here.
      If you want more info regarding this you may PM Yoshiro or Wilsonam about it.

      Random? It's a proffesional company that provides gaming servers.

      The topic has just been made sticky by Tripwire and you can email Pingperfect regarding this matter but the answer will be the same as i gave you already.

          This is interesting.

          Might join some veteran team, if someone needs.


          • #6

            Sounds like fun. I need to form a team for my steam group

            If anyone is interested in forming a team just PM me here or on steam


            • #7
              I might be interested in participating as beginner.
              Damn the day I decided to reset my perks, I would have liked being a veteran :\
              Apparently, having some stats of the game I love in my signature is the equivalent of stroking my e-penis in the mouth of others.


              • #8
                For the people who dont have a team, we have a topic open and dedicated for solo people who are searching for a team.

                  Who are you and where did you come from?

                  Also how do you think you're going to get enough people to pay into this to live up to your prizes. You must be advertising in some really active place where people actually play Killing Floor.

                  In addition.
                  "No cheating or glitching during the tournament, if caught, your whole team WILL be disqualified."
                  Explain both of these. Because some very notorious glitches that exist are the norm because they have been that way for so long. Some things that are either complete code oversights or otherwise.

                  "The team with the best time score wins the tournament!"
                  How does that make sense as an accurate way to judge? Bad spawns as well as things getting stuck will negatively impact a group. Speed to complete a map is a really cop out way to judge things.

                  "Players are not permitted to switch perks during their game. The perk you select during the spawn screen will be your final perk so CHOOSE WISELY."

                  "Although we agree it's pretty cool, players are not permitted to stick explosives to themselves."

                  Finally - Do you guys need a graphical artist? I'm pretty decent.

                    This is your first (in what could be multiple) tournaments for KF. You'd have gained more by giving out smaller prizes and removing the entry fee. There will be problems and complications you can't foresee along with feedback you need to actually get people interested.

                    In later tournaments (if you chose to do more), sure, have an entry fee but, right now, this tournament looks like a suspicious, poorly-made tournament.

                    It doesn't help that you're spamming a thread with the video without even contributing to the topic.

                      I see a sticky thread on Steam Community... But that place is filled with noobs who only ask obvious or repetitive questions.
                      Including a link to both the Steam-unity thread and Steam group to the OP would be nice.

                      Yes, TWI doesn't fix certain things in game... Be it beneficial to the player or not. Also what about keybinding stuff? Is those legit?

                      About the map speed, what if a crawl gets stuck on west London as always? And the team waste minutes hunting for the last zed to realize its behind a wall (unshootable). Those minutes, even a small amount matter a lot.

                      Lastly, arblarg makes kewl gifs.

                        You have to pay to get into this thing?? Nuts to that! I was debating checking it out at some point in the future when I had some spare time, but I was already kind of skeptical of the concept of a KF tournament, but paying for it? Nuts to that, I'll go play some games with my friends thanks.

                          Map's playtime is more a matter of luck than a matter of skill. Of course, it can filter some teams, where 5 players die during a wave and last one is kiting the rest of the zeds. Or when team chooses safe and slow spot in opposite to fast and challenging one. But in other cases, if several teams choose the same camping spot, then the winner generally will be determined by amount of stuck zeds.

                          Adding such features as:
                          MVOTE BORING
                          MVOTE END TRADE
                          would really help to apply rule "less time = more skill", if you know what I mean.
                          KF-DarkZone released! Check it out...

                            As much as I would like to discuss every single detail with you, this is not on topic as this thread is purely for if you wish to sign up for the Killing Floor Games. You can always PM me your questions here on
                            the forums as mentioned in the main post of this topic. We appreciate your feedback and always like to hear your vision of the KFG. Feel free to tell us what you think, but we do ask that you keep criticism constructive.

                            Thanks for the offer, we will keep in touch with you via PM.

                            @DMN 66
                            Will answer your questions via PM.

                            Thanks for those idea's, we appreciate this!

                            We will have more tournaments coming and we see the current tournaments as a development over time, meaning
                            that things aren't written in stone and things can change easily.
                            As of now it is a fun "small" tournament, where anybody can join, if you want to win
                            big prizes, you're at the wrong tournament. (But who knows what we can do for the Killing Floor community in the future!)
                            At the moment there is a low sign-up fee (remember that you can spread it out through your whole team), then again there is also prizes you can win, yes you have to pay but this is clearly written on our website.

                            If this tournament was anything near suspicious or poorly made, we wouldn't get any sponsors, we wouldnt make a website
                            and go public in so many ways and nor would Tripwire sticky this topic in the forum. Making announcements and setting sticky status' to threads is an administration task and belongs to the staff only
                            on this forum (this is the Tripwire forum after all).
                            We had a lot good feedback regarding our presentation/event and some people cant wait to enter (2 teams for sure and 7 teams in the wait), we know things aren't perfect but since we are volunteers, we can't throw thousands of dollars towards this, we have worked hard to get this all happening and do our best to keep things improving and try to please as many people as we can.
                            And finally we knew that hosting a tournament wasn't easy and we get people with different visions here, but you are not forced
                            to enter this tournament if it does not fit to your liking.
                            As for events happening that result in unfair gameplay, we will find a solution to that when a problem arises, we will
                            follow the teams during the livestream as well to make sure things go as they should. In a way each tournament/game always has it's "debates", hence why sport games need referees.
                            Through time things will be tested, some things will need testing if they work or not.

                            I will still hold a revision on the tournament on feedback received, meaning that it is possible a set of adjustments can come. I also received some nice idea's through PM and here in this topic.

                            If you have questions or want to discuss further you can send me a PM, now lets leave this topic to sign-ups only and where this topic is mentioned for.

                            Thank you all for your cooperation.
