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.

      Yes we are

      To check us out:

      Link to join: (click Red Orchestra 2: F|H Clan - join this game button )

      Teamspeak to just join and have a game, we also host many other game/groups: (no password needed)

      Look for [F|H]Ikhoppa who is the clanleader and is on the forums and teamspeak daily.

      Hope to see you join us, we just signed up for the TWL ladder and could use a bunch of new players.

        Currently I see two North American teams who are on the ladders. I know that both of us have rather substantial ladders. I truly hope that other options (CoreNA remnants, other NA clans) become interested in this ladder because right now our presence is paltry at best.


        • #5
          Looking for a clan to join here before the ladder starts. I'd prefer to join the Countdown ladder, but I'll take what I can get.

          I've played RO2 since its release and I usually frequent the RGN server. In-game name is Ratio.

            Players looking for a team

            Hi, I was wondering if there were any clans I could join that will be entering into the TWI Ladder - Stalingrad cup.
            I might be in the clan just for the tournament or if it is a decent clan I will stay on for long.

            I'm a rather skilled player and usually am either 1st or near the top almost every game. Im experienced in Red Orchestra ost and mostly darkest hour but I am very experienced with red orchestra 2 mostly.

            Add me on steam if you would like to offer me a place, Scary_Thing, or just reply to this post.

              Players looking for a team

              Hey everyone,

              I am looking for a unit/clan that participates in TWI Ladder events and is willing to accept new members. Preferably based in Europe. I'm a decent player with 800+ hours of experience in the series. If anyone is willing to give me a chance, please let me know here.



              • #8
                Maybe people looking for clan can give more informations about them:

                - country
                - link to Steam profile

                It is not a lot but may interest clan leader in order to contact you

                  I'm also looking for a team for the upcomming TWI Ladder. Frankly, i just started playing RO with the free weekend, but have been pumping hours into the game ever since.

                  A little about me:
                  I'm a 24 year old german, nice to be around (at least i hope so) and played a wide array of competitive shooters in the past. Mainly Day of Defeat: Source, but also the Counterstrike Series, Call of Duty 4 and the steaming pile of **** that was Brink. In some i've been successfull, in others not so much. I guess i'm mostly "known" for my time in Day of Defeat: Source, where i played for various top teams, was voted as best sniper in europe 3(?) times, won 4 LANs and a lot of online tournaments, including the ESL Major Series twice. In CS:GO i played in the ESEA-Intermediate Division and in my short stint in Brink i was part of the mousesports outfit for the game. I'm well aware that this doesnt necesserily translate into being a good player in RO2, but on the other hand i think it showcases that i understand how to communicate properly and can be a solid teamplayer as those are the basics of every shooter, really.

                  What am I looking for?
                  I'm looking for a team with a bunch of nice guys that enjoy the game and competing with other players. I'm not all that much into military reenactment ingame, or however you really want to call it, so i'm not all that sure that i'll fit well into teams that take their hirachy extremly serious and focus on a milsim route of playing the game.
                  I dont mind really where you guys are from, as long as communication is a non-issue. I would say i'm fairly fluent in german and english, so i would prefer a team that communicates in one of the languages above. I would however prefer if you guys have some patient veterans that are willing to show me the ropes in the game.

                  If you think i could be an addition to your team, just message me in steam ( . And dont be shy, i'm really open to any team, as long as you're looking to have a good time together and play a few ladder games
