Why is no one playing Rising Storm anymore?
All i see is full Red Orchestra 2 Servers.

Probably to avoid people that charge in suicide-squads with flamethrowers.


But in all seriousness, Rising Storm has a lot of CQB, I personally prefer more open areas to brutilate my enemies in.

Imo it's due to the free RO2 release some time ago. More serve ppl probably have just RO2 and didn't buy RS.
I would also love to play a bit more RS but seem that there's no Campaign full server sometime and i love to play campaing mode because i don't like play 2 times same map in a row.

So happen that i generally join full RO2 campaing server more often than RS ones...
(but all the time i see a full RS campaing server i join it asap)

Yeah its a bit repeating playing Red Orchestra 2 all the time sinde i first bought RO2.

Don't most servers run both in away that you can vote maps from both, like one time everything is running ro2 and then few mins later some servers are rs, making the filter not work really well.

[40-1] just started a new rising storm server. Its nice because they got a great community. I play a lot on their HoS server.
I try Rising Storm but the only low population server is hosted in Austrailia, and you can only imagine what my ping is.

surely you can find a less populated server in north america. ping isn't much of an issue with this game. worry less about it. just play. if you don't notice anything too wierd, have fun!

RO2 is a very great and tactical (only whith good peoples and not with all the cod-kiddies)-
But rising storm is only a game for children with all the stupid toys like bansai,flamethrower or totaly overpowered weapons from the allies.
Allies have shorgun,flamethrower, and the assault machine gun (dont know the name of it)
And what have the japanese? lol a shit kiddie bansai or the useless nadelauncher class.

Rising storm is very different from ro2,its much more arcade gameplay. And RS have the nadebug for years and the devs are too silly to fix it. You can aim with nades in RO2 with your finger so you can throw exactly nades through a window or door.
In RS it works only for the allies,the japanese canr target with the finger so its very fifficult to hit a window or door,so the nades for the japanese are useless. I told it here in the forum ver often,but the devs do only 1 thing...nothing!

Play a while rising storm and then go back to ro2 and you see ro2 is the better game.
The maps in ro2 are much more better too,many house-fighting-maps ect.
But rising storm is only a "bushcamper map,only saipan is good.

Ro2 is a very good tactical game with great maps and gameplay
RS is a bad joke with all the overpowered allies weapons and kiddie-toys.And the gameplay is more arcade and mainstream.

at least that's the opinion of one person. i don't share it.

I stopped playing because I was really bad at the game. I did enjoy it though, but 20Mb was a little high to me, and changed for 3 games. (mi HDD space sucks)

there are always 2-3 RS servers full 64/64 every evening... GMT+0

In my case i dont really play rising storm because of the weapons and their respective attachments.As mentioned above flamethroughers are far too OP against the japs and tompshons as well,not to mention the noob toob aka knee mortal. As for the attachments they are far too silly to give (to me at least) any insentive to aquire them.In RO2 most attachments are well thought out not to mention historically accurate(well 90% of them) and provide vast inprovement upon the gun that they are used on.Some examples are the belt mag for the mg34,the scope for the mkb the drum mag for the ppsh and the compensator (or whatever that thing is called)for the svt.In Rising storm you get silly things like 50 round drum mag for the tompson (not used in war as far as I know but go ahead and correct me if you got the evidence)scopes for the jap lmgs (really ?!), an 'improved" sight for the jap smg (imo not really a vast imrovement) a bipod for the bar (like it doesnt already have low recoil plus with such a low mag capasity you wont be wanting to stay pinned in one location but rather shoot,back off to reload then move forwards to shoot again).So yeah while in Ro2 the gun play is pretty balanced historicaly aqurate to a more than decent extend and exciting in Rising storm in order to account for the sever lack for variation in weaponry on both sides(realisticly japs only used rifles and some times an mg or two ,and americans part from the m1 garands and the mg only had a very scarse distribution of tompsons and m1 carabines) they have chosen to feature exotic weapons that where not really used at the front and attachments that when not silly are historicaly inaccurate.

I only quit playing RS for a while, because I still have to finish grinding out the ♥♥♥♥♥♥ DP-28 before the magic of the MG-42 drops.

Only Ro2 guns I don't have to level 50 are the DP, both the German snipers (Although the G41W is like level 42 now), the P-38/TT-33/Nagant, and both the AT rifles, but playing AT rifleman sucks anyway.

I find RS much more fun, but it gets old getting stuck on Axis and having to play Iwo Jima and Betio OVER AND OVER AND OVER because the ♥♥♥♥♥♥ Allies teamstackers only know how to play two maps.
