Hi Guys we would just like to let you know how this new campaign will be set up.

Firstly your 2 leaders for this campaign will be.

TL Wir3tap for the Axis side running the 114th Jager Regiment.
TL Squarebasher for the Allied side running the 2nd Marine Regiment.

We will be playing 6 battles with 2 weeks of testing beta maps before that to make sure they work okay and also to give us some practice time.

The battles will be played in RO2/RS campaign mode, with all players participating in the choosing of the territory to attack and the map pick. We will play RO2 campaign mode one week and the next week RS campaign mode, alternating though the 6 weeks, these campaigns will be played in realism mode. The first attacking side will be decided by a coin toss.

We have had a lot of discussion between ourselves about how we deal with the levelling system in RO2/RS, we will let the levelling system run. It is pretty easy to rank up on our server we have plenty of bots running on it at the present time.

One thing that might unbalance teams is the hero level, so we have decided not to allow hero ranks while playing campaign battles.

SIGNUPS - SATURDAY FEBRUARY 1ST! 2PM EST/7PM GMT



CAMPAIGN SCHEDULE


RO2 = Red Orchestra 2 and custom German vs Soviet maps
RS = Rising Storm and custom Japanese vs American maps

Note that RS maps can be played without owning the game;
only RO2 is required. However, you will have a much better
game experience and be of greater use to your team if you also
own RS. Without RS, you are severely limited on weapon choice
and can not take advantage of level-up benefits for combat.

Do we have to buy the Pacific expansion to get in on this, or is the base game sufficient?

[WaW]CA|Wir3tap
01-24-2014, 04:46 PM
Base game should be fine. I will have to see when we set the honor levels for everyone how it will affect those that don't own RS. It still might only allow you to get the RS initial weapons.

hey i'd love to see some big maps tried out, maybe give tanking a fair shake. Something along the lines of the Arad map for RO1. Too bad they havent introduced any vehicles besides the tanks, such as kubels and hanomags.

Game is not really designed for Tournament play in WaW style but I could be proved wrong. But i am willing to give it ago, I need to download it.

- The only tournaments i know of is TWL but that is team vs team or clan vs clan which would be between 5-16 people.

With some variation on the WaW model, RO could work out. It has been stated in previous posts that RO is a mod of a mod for half life. The mod from which RO was created is the game on which this organization was built. With limited mission variety, the fundamental change the WaW model needs to deal with is the general lack of combined arms. A lot of the maps call for an attacking force to capture areas to move the map forward while some allow for the defender to counter attack. The capture-defend aspect is not unlike the BF engine in theme. However, the maps are generally smaller than FH so instead of assigning flags to a unit, ala FH, units would logically be assigned sectors of the front.
There is seemingly room for subtle adaptations to the structure used in Day of Defeat in which we had 3 elements on each side, an attack unit, a defense unit and an infiltration unit. Which isn't vastly different from how FH combat typically developed.

While there has been talk about mods and mod tools, from myself included, I am unaware of any significant work being done at present. Without more map options, I will find any campaign boring if it goes on too long as a result of playing the same maps over and over again.

The pub events have been moderately successful, IMO, and allow for optimism enough to rationalize a campaign. It is also my opinion that RO is too constricting as of now to be more than a diversion or stop gap to allow further exploration into a new venue for the tourney. The worst that could happen is that we damage a reputation we don't have within a niche game while at best we could find RO is a good fit for us. The most likely scenario is that we may gain some new members while having some fun killing each other for a few weeks.

Indeed it is slightly ironic that we have come back to our roots after over ten years because the gaming industry has essentially gone in reverse (at least for us). It's been so long since I've played DoD that I didn't even realize the connection at first, but then it all came flooding back.

I am certainly looking forward to this campaign though, and I do think it can last longer than you might think.

I don't know about that. There was a BFE for the original Call of Duty which (although less realistic) was otherwise exactly the same scope and size as RO2, arguably even smaller as it did not have tanks.

And as I recall, BFE:CoD was a ridiculous amount of fun and the squad level tactics was probably better/more fun than the FH equivalent. If I was an infantryman, I'd be stoked for RO2.

Generally any game can work in this format. I played in AWOT for America's Army and actually bfewaw for COD2. Red Orchestra should work very well under this and scale well for smaller turnouts as well as larger ones.

You can always wait for Rising Storm (Pacific RO2) until it goes on sale. With RO2, you can still play the Pacific maps, but your weaponry will be limited and you will not rank with the Pacific maps.

Speaking of waiting for it to go on sale... IN FACT, it's $5 off right now. It's $15.

So does this remain true even on BFE unranked servers? Or will I have the full level of equipment for the purposes of tournament play? It seems like nobody has a super clear answer to this.

From just the card perspective and in terms of generic 3D benchmarks, it seems significantly better than the Nvidia and ATI they list for minimum requirement.

I found an interesting site where I plugged in your requirements:
Minimum Requirement: CPU, GPU, and RAM all exceed requirement.
Recommended System: Exceed RAM, but don't make the line on CPU or GPU.
Projected FPS Analysis: Above the Game Line for all settings, (Low, Medium, High, and Ultra).

Here's the link with your filled in specs: click here (http://www.game-debate.com/games/index.php?g_id=1374&game=Rising+Storm&p_make=Intel&p_deriv=Core+i5-430M+2.26GHz&gc_make=Nvidia&gc_deriv=GeForce+GTS+360M&ram=4&checkSubmit=#systemRequirements).

The website page to enter settings is:

Yes, you will be able to play. You will definitely need to run your graphics settings pretty low though. RO2 is optimized well though, so with low settings you should get a decent frame rate.

Yes, it does. Ranked or unranked is irrelevant in this case. Without purchasing RS separately you will be able to play all the RS maps, but only bolt action rifles will be available to you. You need to buy RS to get access to all the other weapons and upgrades. However, without RS you can still pickup special/locked weapons from your fallen comrades and use them fully.

Clarification -- This is how the game can get custom maps. This is how it is typically done for public play. However, for our planned battles on Saturdays, we plan to post links to the teams. This is so they can download in advance and be ready for battle at the desired start time. We plan to post map names and their links in the team forums.

[WaW]CA|Melvin
02-13-2014, 05:46 AM
Your TL's have posted the custom map links in your team forums. Be aware there are two ways to get the maps. One is installing a program and then downloading maps from a European server. The other way is to directly download the maps (actually a large zip file) directly from a North American server and extracting it. Instructions are in your forums.

On another note -- You can see we have a few Red Orchestra 2 / Rising Storm servers. You are encouraged to get in practice whenever you can. Our servers make that easy. Right now we have about 70 people playing between the two main servers. The more you play on a Ranked server, the more you will level up yourself and the weapons you use in the game.

We've made it easy to practice in the two environments, Stalingrad (Red Orchestra 2) and Pacific (Rising Storm). Each of the two main servers are dedicated to a single environment:

World at War's Red Orchestra 2 Server -- 209.222.20.115
World at War's Rising Storm Server -- 209.222.20.116

There are many other servers out there. Be sure to play on a Ranked one. What ever you do, have fun! :gob_icon_biggrin:

Send a PM to [114JR] Whinger I know he did some changes to his config that made it run a lot better.
