The noble Atreides, the insidious Ordos and the evil Harkonnen. Only one house will prevail.... This forum is for the discussion of Intelligent Games' C&C inspired recreation of Westwood Studios' Dune 2.
Remember the original Command & Conquer? Remember all the units, characters and themes from the game? Remember the gritty feeling of RTS Warfare? Remember Tiberium? Well, that classic game from the early 90's that spawned over a dozen titles and revolutionized the RTS Gaming World has been reincarnated in the advanced 3D World of the C&C Generals Zero Hour SAGE 3D Game engine!
I like the idea, but there has to be something more to it.
Maybe like extra small - everyone starts in the same center and there are 4 "areas" right next to it, so when you see 3 ppl are drivin in the same direction you choose the other etc. Then you can think about expanding the map with a timer or sth like this.
Because if you do it like you said the one with the noob at start has a huge advantage and this could be fun killing. You could also think about some "neutral" units between both, so this will delay a too simple and early rush a bit (and help noobs a little).
To me FFA is always about the interplay with everyone, so it's a bit like a diplomacy game. You have to worry about pulling aggro and stuff. Because of that I like to keep the terrain always open to everyone.
Or at a certain point the barriers to all others are opened ( like 8 ppl on the corners in 4 seperated areas with very low ressources and after a certain time the central area gets accessible with gems and stuff).
Just thinking loud 😉
So I have recently learned of this site. Red Alert was the start of a 20 year casual online gaming experience and I am excited to play again what started it all. I started gaming back in probably 1999 as this was my first online game I ever played. Back in the day I was a decent player ranked in the top 80. I have since forgotten how to play, but look forward to playing each of you as I relearn the game.
I also stream my gaming, from Battlefield 1/V, Halo, Fortnite, & now C&C Red Alert.
Feel free to check me out @ www.twitch.tv/krahsh33 where you might see yourself playing me.
I have posted my link in the forum to be added to the LIVE feed to the site, but await approval.
Thanks for stopping by
