my thoughts and opinions since the recent update (for experianced RO2 fans)
so, i'd like to share my thoughts and see what the community thinks and if you are experiancing what i am.
so, i've been playing RO2 since it's release and have alway's loved the experiance, however i am having some problems with the game, and with a recent tripwire decision. my thoughts are, that although the update released this april was great, it has created some different problems that have only arose since the update, mainly crap loading and connection times.
my pc is top of the range from 2012, so it is pretty good, however it is taking me 3-4 minutes to conect to a server, which is at least tripple the time before the update. but more annoyingly i am being kicked from the server for being full, even though i had just played the previous round! also to actually launch the game it is taking a good 3-4 minutes. this has increased expinentually.
my biggest gripe at the moment is the recent tripwire desision to make red orchestra 2 free for players who played the game during the free 24hr's. this has, although filled servers, in my opinion, made the game more of a dragg due to poor player coheasion. i just played a couple of rounds that were dull and generally not the red orchestra experiance i'm used to.
in conjuntion with this, many players dont seem to understand that you are only supposed to shoot your enamy, and team killing to get good wepons seems to be quite common. me and my friends who are experianced are finding team killing a major player issue. i know that the player count will decrease, and good loyal players will sift though. but i don't think these players truely understand what red orchestra 2 is about.
now i'm not asking for explinations, or anything like that, i just want to ask if people who are experianced players are finding the same issues or same gripes.
i am moaning and gripeing, but i've been reluctant to play since the update due to the lenth of time connecting, the common ocurance of being kicked from a server during server map change due to full players, and the poor teamwork and to be honest poor skill of teams and players.
if people know of a server that they play often with many experinaced players and or friends that would be great (preferably in europe due to ping).
thank you for reading this, i am looking forward to reading your thoughts and opinions.

"I'm just trying to "hear" something good about Rising Storm" since I learned to play RO on the Osfront edition and everyone has gripes about something or other.I had a lot of fun with the old edition.
I wasn't expecting to get ROrchestra2 for free but I checked and there it is in my library.
Now I own ROrchestra2, RisingStorm/ROchestra2/24 hour trial, Darkest Hour Europe 44-45, and ROSfront 41-45. So I guess I can expect that "Rising Storm" will be a combination of all the others?And the only good thing I'll hear about it is by what is available to read on the store page!

you'll hear plenty of good things about this game in this forum but regrettably it will all be from the developers and their hired shills...

Said the Troll (I'm not talking about your quote there Scratch)

I'm a huge WW2 Buff I love RS sure it has it's differences from RO2 as it's set in a different campaign of the war so it's not fighting through industrial complexes and what not it's island jungle foliage other than that it's great. The fact that we get to play the niche areas of WW2 instead of the usual suspects of D-Day, OP market garden, etc... it's a great addition.

If this is true I am very disapointed.

I built a new system recently, put $1400 into it. It's not taking me that long to get on a server but it's taking 2 to 3 times as long as before the recent update. One of the devs posted up something about clearing out a certain directory because old files might be causing the load delay....can't recall/find that post though!

I've seen that team killing: one guy shot another to take his MP40, and then he got shot for the same reason... for a moment I felt I was in "The lord of the Flies" movie, when the kids with spears hunted the other kid.

I have also slow loading times when changing maps, and a slow start up.

About the problems with the new players (besides the team killing thing), most of them are very impatient: I usually don't play as SL, but since they are so many new players, I play as SL, cause that's better than be under command of someone that does not even know the maps... but they don't take cover, they run in the open... as an SL you tell them to take cover, to wait in the cap till something changes in your area (more team mates arriving, smoke, or friendly tanks), making safer to move, but they have no patience an run or expose themselves to enemy fire (and the entire squad), because they can not wait a few minutes.

Other thing: at first it was funny, but new players please stop running over your team mates when you are driving a vehicle.

If you TK someone his weapon actually immediately dissapears. So its a bit futile to tk to pickup someone's weapon :P
