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!

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.

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.

  • weapon weight should affect the handling

    so far,i have yet to see how the gun's weight effect it's preformace, it's not really realistic, and in some cases not very balanced.

    first, the gun's weight should affect the stamnia use. the heavier the gun the more strentgth your character spends to run with it, and thus consume more stamina.

    second, the heavier the gun, the more time it should take to aim down sights, a small and light PPS should be easier to handle than the heavy and cumbersome MKB.
    also, the heavier the gun the more sway it should have. this for example can give an edge of the Mosin nagant over the Tokarev since the bolt-action rifle is lighter and as such, suffer less from sway.

    what do you think? another realism factor and not that really hard to program and will definetly add more depth to the game

    I thought the game already did that, I could be mistaken.

      i dont know about you, but it takes the exact same time to ADS the heavy and big BAR as it takes to aim the small and lightweight type 100.

      hell, even the pistols ADS time is the same as the BAR

        It does this already. The carry weight of your gear affects both your speed and stamina. It gets quite notable if you carry around the AT rifle, satchels and other heavy objects at once.

        As for the other things, it would be nice to see them added but I doubt it will happen .

          The IOM mutator is probably going to address all this.


          • #6
            It's there (I think) but it's hardly noticeable. Because of this BAR looks superior to AVT in game (less recoil because of weight but very little stamina/sway/speed penalty), despite being more than twice as heavy.

                IOM is the way forward. Take a looksee:

                  right now the weight in the game is simply 'the more stuff you carry the more stamina you waste'

                  that's it.

                  it doesn't affect gun sway, ADS time and induvidual weapons.

                  and the mutator is not a good answer because it's only a used in very few servers, it needs to be incorporated into the actual game


                  • #10
                    While I agree with you in principle and I would like to see more inertia in game, I would suggest that the mutator is the only answer at this point. The odds that TWI will change anything relating to weapons and loadout behaviour far after release are slim to none, the majority of players are likely happy with it as is.


                    • #11
                      Judging by IOM's popularity they aren't, or at least they would welcome an improvement.

                        While a growing small subset of players are aware of and like the IOM, the majority don't have a clue about it. Yet.

                        If it gets whitelisted, the exposure will surely change. If it then proves popular, I could see the possibility of some of it being rolled by TWI into the game, maybe as a new version of Classic or some other named mode, maybe into the base game itself.

                        I just don't see TWI focusing on adding more realistic features to RO2, the style of gameplay is as they envisioned it from the beginning and their target. Unless the majority of the playerbase clamors for it, I'd expect more of the same in the future. If the small subset of the IOM, combined arms fans and like minded gamers becomes larger, more popular and a more attractive market, we might see changes in RO3.

                              thats correct, i was wrong about 27 kg, actually its 20/22
