  • [EVENT] Learn Red Orchestra 2 Night!

    We on the Red Orchestra admin team would like to invite everyone to an informal "crash course" introduction to Tripwire Interactive's game Red Orchestra 2. For those of you unfamiliar with this title, Red Orchestra 2 is a FPS taking place on the Eastern Front during WWII; you can read Mindkill's review here!

    The event will be take place either this Saturday or Sunday (November 19th or 20th). The date itself will be determined by you, the community, based on which of those two days is most convenient for those wishing to attend. The plan is to lock and password the server around 6 p.m. Eastern (2300 GMT) and have everyone meet in the Red Orchestra Teamspeak channel. After the event, we will unlock the server and go "weapons free" while the newly acquired information is still fresh in everyone's minds.

    Our focus will be on the Territory (Conquest) game mode, with an emphasis on infantry tactics. More specifically, Red Orchestra 2 has a Chain-of-Command system in place, with an overall commander, squad leaders, and then fireteams built into the squads themselves; we will focus primarily on being a quality squad member and briefly discuss SL and commander functions and their particular roles.

    We will cover the following basics:

    1) Reading the map
    2) Determining which flags are in play, and if you're in the cap radius
    3) Using "tactical view" (attack/defend/rally points)
    4) Locating ammo depots
    5) Resupplying machine gunners
    6) Firing different weapons (including fixed MGs)
    7) Using grenades (cooking and tossing underhand)
    8) Melee
    9) Spawning on your squad leader
    10) Picking up and dropping individual weapons
    11) Using different VoIP channels (squad/team/all)

    ...among other topics to be covered if time allows. Of course, any and all questions are welcome!

    If you don't currently own the game, it can be downloaded for US $23.99.

    So whether you're a novice or veteran, show up this weekend to both learn and teach new things while having fun playing this fantastic title at TG!

    Lastly, don't forget to vote. We will tally all the responses and give a solid date for this event by Thursday evening based on results of the poll.

                    Oh, sorry. I'm viewing the forums via tapatalk on my android. I guess it doesn't show when there's a poll.

                        I have a topic to add to the list:

                        Effective use of the command (SL/CO) tools in game.

                            Oh, I forgot to add that I should be able to attend either evening. I just won't be able to stay too late.

                              We'll announce later tonight (Thursday) which evening "won" the poll. Right now it looks like Saturday has a slight upper hand...
