EU players : play MOAR classic !!!
http://forums.tripwireinteractive.com/showthread.php?t=95530

I'll be honest, i used to play a LOT of realism before the last mega-update.

Classic mode never really looked that interesting to me, although i happened to play some RO1 + roost in the past.

It's MUCH improved now ! no more stupid " cannot ADS while sprinting, let go of "shift" first " and no more painfully slow running spped ! We now got a mode that feels more realistic and tactical than "realism" it self ! no more stupid bandaging, no minimap, no lockdown, no more robocop zoom feature no more magic spawn on SL, just pure and immersive WW2 action !

There's an UK 64 man classic server, called 40-1 #2 WHERE EAGLES DARE, it's always full at night and the rotation is very fresh - RO 2 maps + RS maps + lots of custom maps !!

Remember, you can still lvl up your weapons/classes while playing, but the playing is field is much more even for EVERYBODY ! You can't use your upgrades nor sprint 10% faster just because you killed 3000 bots on an empty server during the last 2 weeks, now everyone has the same soldier stats and weapon attachments !

IHMO Tripwire should have never bothered with "action" mode and offer those amazing classic mode improvments much earlier, there's so much sway now when you ADS, especially when you are low on stamina, it feels so rewarding when you manage to get a kill, even if the target was "only" 70meters away !

See you on the classic servers tonight !!!

Sounds good, and can I just thank you for not insulting realism players while you actually justify why classic mode is good.

...must....try...not....insult....realism...cod...players.... trying...real.....hard....

Seriously though: classic is the only right and true path. Not realism mode which is just action mode without crosshair.

I do apologize for being alittle behind things here. I se you need more player`s in classic mode, am I right in this assumption? I have checked the "unranked" tap under MP and do se alot of empty classic servers, which can be rather fatal/sad in a game like RO2/RS, where 5000 players more would mean alot.

Now! I have played COD, BF2 way back just to get it out of the way and ran over to Ofp and ARMA, until it was attacked/bitten by zombies. I had to find an escape and evasion route and found RO2 as a safe haven away from these walking dead`s.

I think I have played action mode once or so because the game demanded it before I could play Realism mode - that`s how I remember it.

Now! To the point of it all. I have been interested in classic mode (playing realism now), but the servers are empty - you have a classic community, where are they? Are they playing? If yes, what are they playing?

What is the difference between realism and classic mode? On a more serious attempt to get classic mode shine.

I would like to hear from those, who have played or playing both and, of course, from those, who only play this mode.

The only thing I can se is that you are not lvl up. The demand on team play is the same, am I right?

The only reason I stop/dont play Classic is that I cant use my unlocks... And I think thats the same reason why 90% of players dont play Classic too.

Ok I can se it can be or are a game breaker for some. Good and fair answer thx.

Strong points? How about strong points?

you still lvl up when playing classic mode on a ranked server ( such as 40-1 UK #2 )

you still get weapon xp, raise your honor lvl etc

i'll get back home in 2-3 hours so see you there and bring your friends too !

What is the difference between realism and classic mode?

- Class rank and weapon bonuses and unlocks do not apply (although you can still level them for use in Realism)
- Less stamina
- Slower to bring up sights, especially if trying to bring them up from a sprint
- More weapon sway
- More recoil
- No "Focus" to look closer
- Squad Leaders only get bolt-actions as their primary
- No spawn on SL
- No bandaging (it magically stops your bleeding automatically)
- No mini-map (compass instead)

The main difference is that with less stamina, no spawn on SL and more weapon sway, it generally slows everything down: people don't run nearly as often, as fast or as far, don't get back into the fight as quickly (since they always have to run back from normal spawn points) and shooting someone at range takes a little more time to line up sights on them.

Honestly, I don't find it any harder than Realism, just a slower more methodical style of gameplay. I like both Realism and Classic, and would probably play Classic a fair bit if there were some regularly populated servers, but I think the Classic snobs that always whine about Realism need to shove a sock in it.

If you haven't tried it, and can find a server with a few people, give it a shot. Maybe it's something you'll like, maybe not, but no reason not to try it for yourself and see.

Just read everything in this one http://forums.tripwireinteractive.com/showthread.php?t=95530

And got an idea, what classic is all about (just an idea though) :D

Vent to the 40-1 UK#2 Server to check some aiming and other stuff out. As Im not one who like to go against bots I left after 1st round on Hanto - just to se when I left two other players on the server, but hey, will be in later.

Have to check out this classic some more. One thing I like though is the count down is gone as I understand it.
