  2. Flame tank is underused because its not so great, perhaps it could also get a buff for this patch? Armour/speed increase? Its such an enjoyable unit like the MRLS but rarely has a place. Make it the fearsome unit its meant to be? Since GDI get enhanced bazookas and mrls how about nod apaches stay the same power re their ammo? My God with APCs that cant crush AND a weaker Engie whats Pence supposed to do? This is like an aniti Chem and Pence mod
  3. "There are already backup plans/schemes to preserve the game in the works. People will always try to paint their stuff their own shade/colour so that is nothing new. History repeats itself and people think their version of reality is better then others. I am for preserving the game but at the same time I am heavily waiting on the remaster because its reworked by the same people who made the original which means it may just be a more mature expression of the game made by professionals or simply just a graphics/multiplayer upgrade by professionals. Your worries are well founded though chem" This is a quote from Myg, I agree please don't let people with unpopular opinions force what they want on everyone else, and change our beloved game into their mod. No one plays Ferrets mod, no one plays whites maps, why force their type of unpopular opinions on everyone else? Whats next no crush for tanks and some horrible mod?
  4. What is going to be the role of this patch? Is it intended to replace the official game, or is it just a mod for fun? I see a divide coming, not many nod players will want to play this patch, and many GDI players will want to play it. Where does it fit in with competition are some people going to be competing with this patch and some with the real game? Im sticking to the real game I hope others follow suit, this to me is just a fun extra in the options, I hope that doesn't cause offence Lovehandles. I just want to be good at the actual game and not a mod of it. White has been making maps so he can win from the start his earliest creations were maps that had a massive distance to the point that the AI broke down, (scared to engage with nod players so he created a huge distance) then came the GDI bias maps that were sized to his resolution and settings and not balanced for nod despite that claim, and now the game itself is being changed. Hes like one of those new guys that makes a special set of options so he can an unfair undeserved win, but he carried on doing it for over a decade? This seems to be a continuation of that theme, but now the freaking game itself is being changed which probably later down the line there will be a a sly attempt to force it on everyone as an official patch, as the maps of his didn't not become popular. I mean apaches are not only nerfed a massive amount but also rocket infantry boosted and mrls + mammoths available too, it seems a GDI bias mod to me. It doesn't fill me with confidence that the rest is well thought out when apaches are nerfed that much. It strikes me not as Lovehandles work, but Lovehandles being persuaded by white too much. Then add to that the countless hours people have put into learning engie offence and defence, or certain builds like the heli - troop build and mastering the overpowered units, it might ruin the many hours of effort people have put into skill development. Its all dandy if its just a fun extra but I sense this is an attempt a making an official patch or competition mode, and "some people" will treat it as just that, or try to creep it into that position , causing a divide in a tiny community which could be a problem.
  5. To BluySY's wife and everyone, I made some jokes of poor taste about this, to start with I thought it was a practical joke and then after I made the same error, but I am truly sorry, and I am also truly sad about his death. I hope my sadness is the kind of respect BluySY should have got from me in the 1st place. Kind regards. He is in peace now. Rest In Peace BluySY
  6. A new patch is coming that balances the game, potentially making it better, its a well thought out patch, that does seem to solve balance issues, it does seem to make a better game out of cnc1 however im concerned it will divide the community, an already small and fragile community. The patch favours GDI players and punishes nod players, which is necessary as nod is probably over powered if only a bit. Im concerned the balance will be in the favour of GDI and not even, GDI players are already very effective, it could be a situation like with whites maps where no 1 can say they are GDI bias maps they seem pretty even but when you give a player that plays both sides like weaver the choice they will choose GDI to get the advantage on those maps, I think the same could be true of the new patch, on the surface it may seem like its balanced but in reality it may now favour GDI. Also the other main problem is nod players want to win and will probably have no interest in using the patch, also some players will not recognise it as the real cnc1 and will want to continue to get better at the official cnc1 not a modification of it, lastly GDI players want to win and will probably favour the new patch. This could cause a "50 50" divide in our already small community which could be a big problem as the community is so small, some people do not get along with others e.g. pence and speedy and even that 1 minute divide is a problem for making games, because there's so few people. Add to that the divide the remasters will cause ie we may lose some players to that , making our community even smaller , and then we may have the death of cnc1 online. I like the idea of the patch don't get me wrong I just wanted to voice this concern just encase it actually happens. I think none of us want that, just a concern not sure if its a valid concern or not just wanted to bring it to everyone's attention 1st.......
  7. Why hasn't Achronomic White left his best wishes? Someone page him, knowing White, he probably doesn't have a clue.
  8. Also as a tribute could everyone put the letters ^SY after their name in the lobby so we never forget? SMT has started this and it brought a tear to my eye, I think it would be a kind and touching thing to do?
  9. Also perhaps we could allow Mike Pence to be unmuted so he can give his condolences, I think its important, he was one of BluSY's close friends?
  10. Im sure we can add his maps to the official rota White was talking about that will make sure BluSY's memory stays with us for as long as we are here. Would you like us to do that that BluSY's wife? Your and his maps together were beautiful creations of art! Some of the best in the community imo. I missed BlueSY before I even knew he was gone, he will always be a friend dear to my heart. Not to mention a high ranking and excellent player!

    Ephraim I hope you come back to Tiberian Dawn and start 1v1ing with us again. I don't know where to put you anymore because its been so long and its hard to get a game with you. We are having some fights on Monday at 6 pm GMT if you want to face me SMT and Pence and other guys. Obviously you rank high, but you are one of the few tricky ones to rank so ive left you out for now. Come fight with us and we can find out what your rank is. You can choose map. But if you don't want to its no problem either im not trying to call you out. Just explaining why I left you out it doesn't mean I don't think you are one of the top guys you are. Another hard one to rank is Grofaez, because he plays exceptionally well on certain maps and well but not as well on others, that's because of a very specific style he has so ive left him out of teh rankings too for the time being.
  12. Thanks for the tips Nyer! I corrected it, and got the video back up! (after someone reported me on youtube lol)
  13. .......Here https://youtu.be/UxXp7KNXBd0 They keep getting banned and blocked on this forum so now I have moved them to you tube where people can discuss them with total freedom of speech and without the discussion being locked or banned. Im not trying to monopolise the rankings but do the opposite and make them free for everyone to discuss without being banned or silenced. Only the top players will be ranked as too many people gets too complex. Top 10 max. It will also be updated by anybody as the rankings change and fluctuate. Any view points can be discussed or argued freely by anyone.

    Also note I will be hosting the rankings and other topics that this forum doesn't allow on my you tube channel https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCXf6XuJ62NHlvwlnU9lL8iw That way I and you cant be controlled by bias rules and people on this forum! Theres only 2 people on here anyway! together with a mod that's their friend and you get total bias in their favour and against everyone else. I will change that now.

    To counter your "points" 0) You didn't nearly beat me, you were getting easier as matches went on then quit before I totally mastered your style/you, and the damage done was only via cheesing and it looked worse than it actually was , it was never going to win the game , it just looks bad when you lose your conyard etc, but you had 0 harvesters lol and was easy to defend against in the matches after when I learnt the tricks you use. 1) You have berated me for cheesing esp the buggy and heli variety, yet you use alot of cheese yourself esp the engineer variety, 2) Yes I woke up at 6pm GMT still intoxicated, and I get jittery and shaky and nervous after a heavy drinking session, until I get some food, I was just about to eat a takeaway before I fought you and I fought you before I could start my takeaway as I told everyone about. I don't drink often but when I do I don't like to stop. You don't know the truth I do. Youre just guessing. (the jitteriness affected my mouse control and ability to think straight/fast, and the booze slowed me mentally as well) 3) It is my own turf and not yours which is true but for ages I have avoided that map for a really long time, trying to play the "real" meta, these days Zodiac, circle , sand banks, and other more troop friendly sprawl friendly maps have been my home turf Ive tried to avoid injustice like the plague. 4) My memories are not selective, I only play you once in the blue moon, so I damn well remember clearly the game, we had some fights on green acres, and I won, so did PHD very handily I might add on his part, and Ggeneral and PHD were there to witness it as were me and you, you know what happened, I beat you twice you didn't beat me, on your home turf Prior to that going back much further I used to get the upper hand with my buggy spam more often than you did and again on green acres. Heres some footage of you vs jakub in a FFA you had bottom advantage and were left completely alone to have a 1v1 with jakub and he wasn't left entirely alone its obvious you are one of the less cerebral plays and one of the weaker players, compared to your peers. You always have been, your ego just cant accept it which is partly why you hate me so much long term because I show you what the truth is and it doesn't sit well with you. https://youtu.be/8SIXFGb7Qyw 5) I remember a 2v2 where you won, but they are a different dynamic its only really fair if you are completely isolated in your fight within the 2v2, which we were absolutely not, you had the better team and won, that's your best claim to beating me, THATS sad imo 6) Finally I play low res as well and its an advantage overall not a disadvantage. Real men accept the truth Cn2mc rather than fighting reality and hating on people that show them the side of reality that doesn't sit well with their self concept.
  16. Be warned people can cause the out of sync on purpose as a method to troll you, its not that bad now it can be troublesome but for the most part its pretty good, but trolls will cause it over and over again in an attempt to grief you. Try looking out for patterns with certain people and don't play with them if you get out of syncs while they are in the game. Good luck bro

    https://youtu.be/MjW3xF6e3Vo A fun game between me and Cn2mc, some fun TV for you guys! I didn't play very well due to a late night drinking and the jitters, but still managed to win a best of 3 with cn2mc. Foolishly tried a noob cheese on the 1st game and paid the price. But pulled it back on the next 2 to take the best of 3 win. Beat cn2mc on green acres not too long ago as well over several games, see Ggeneral and PHD for witnesses. (PHD beat him too) The most / only damage done by cn2mc was the Chinook engies which ironically is cheesing not the core skill of the game, and what I get told off for by cn2mc lol but it all adds to the pleasure of the game anyway imo. Enjoy I WOULD ALSO LIKE TO POINT OUT THAT I HAVE BEATEN NOT ONLY CN2MC YET AGAIN, BUT FERRET EASILY AND CAUSED HIM TO RAGE QUIT, THERE WERE WITTNESSES RA1 PLAYERS, IT WAS A FAIR HEAD ON WIPE OUT IN MY FAVOUR. (his win over lovehandles was not enough to secure a number 1 spot since it was his home turf imo and love was very rusty) AND WHILE WHITE WAS TOO SCARED TO FIGHT ME AND DID BEAT ME IN OUR LAST FIGHT A WHILE BACK WHEN I WAS MORE NOOB I HAVE NOW BEATEN HIM/SUPPASSED HIM VIA COMPARRISON, IE IM ABLE TO BEAT GUYS LIKE PHD AND HE CANT THERES FOOTAGE OF THIS, I HAVE BEATEN OTHER TOP PROS THAT HE HAS NEVER BEATEN AND PLAY FAR MORE COMPETATIVELY WITH THEM (WINS AND LOSSES EITHER WAY) THAN HE EVER HAS ONCE , I CAN BEAT HIM, I AM BETTER THAN HIM, WHICH IS WHY HE AVOIDS ME IN THE 1ST PLACE OBVIOUSLY. I HAVE CONQUERED EVERYONE IN THIS FORUM THAT HAVE BEEN SO HOSTILE AND CORRUPT TOWARDS ME! ITS FEELS FANTASTIC! I MAKE THEM REALISE THEIR SELF CONCEPT OR EGO ISNT REAL BUT DELUSIONAL. WHICH IS PARTLY WHY THEY HATE ON ME SO MUCH! I WIN! I WILL GO ON TO CONQUER EVERYONE IN TIME MY RATE OF PROGRESSION IS FASTER THAN ANYONES! ITS ONLY A MATTER OF TIME TILL IM NUMBER 1. I AM ALSO NUMBER 1 WHEN IT COMES TO MAP POPULARITY PEOPLE LIKE MY STUFF THE BEST. YOU HAVE ALL BEEN CONQUERED BY CHEM!
  18. Community Feedback, this is what I get routinely when Im trying to spread your maps so much so it even happened just now, this is from the majority of the community who are not here in the forum..... I usually hide it from you guys to be nice. https://imgur.com/5r6Jw5D
  19. Im not going to be taking some kind of childish revenge, people that hate someone and try to get them back are the ultimate losers imo especially if its over the long term because they are stuck suffering with anger and hate themselves as they try to take revenge. But I am free now from control and I probably will continue to do things that annoy controlling types (editing peoples maps, creating 1v1 in FFA and team games and so forth) , but does not mean im intentionally doing it to get one back at you, im not. Im not trying to perpetuate the negativity and start a back and forth troll job or spat, that's just not good for anyone except Pence and Co. Im just going to keep to the rules and enjoy my game and my maps. I will add that 2 members here I will name no names (joke) have been trying to make a 1v1 tournament for at least 5 years with no success (before my time and the forum doesn't go back that far even), its not going to happen most likely, since its hard to co-ordinate people together for the tournament because of time zones, work, a lack of interest, people refusing to play other players and we have mini tournaments all the time anyway which we organise ourselves which are far more practical and I should imagine almost as fun. Also if you've failed to make it happen for over 5 years then that is some suggestion in itself, that its not so likely to happen. Secondly the idea of having official maps that are custom made I feel is not right and im against it, because the maps are not popular people don't like them and so you are forcing something onto people by making them "official" you can sugar coat it another way but that's basically what you are doing, you are encouraging and persuading in a way, for people to use these maps over the maps of others and I don't think its right because its a few peoples wants over the majorities. (even if you feel you are the intellectual elite and that you know best for everyone else in our community, and are in charge of them, you might want to consider my next point..... .....That is if your map is good enough to catch on, and you are truly talented at making maps then you don't need to force it on people (granted its quite easy to make a map catchy and it can be very non technical very noobish) but you can also make a technical map that is very popular too (granted its a bit harder) but then you don't need to force it on people by making it "official" or the only map people can use for ranked games , or a tournament etc. It will catch on all by itself. without you even needing to spread it. So make not just a sound technically balanced map, make one that's popular too, (e.g. Vertical Limit 1 has the proper Meta/balance and is popular, plays incredibly, and looks pretty good too) and that's what you need to do if you want your maps to be used, you have to make people love it, I recommend paying attention to people other than yourselves and seeing what they like, investigating and then trying to adapt your maps to fit that, rather than getting into a small group telling yourselves that you are superior and assuming leadership over all of us all and then trying to force what most people do not like onto us! That's my vote anyway I vote against people being forced to use maps they wouldn't pick to use and spread all by themselves. Beethoven produced some masterful music that was popular back in the day but its not so popular today in recent times, Pink Floyd on the other hand produced some music that's also brilliant and its popular in more recent times. No one knows about the guy that made good but unpopular music back in classical times, and no one knows about someone that makes good but unpopular music today, popular opinion is key imo, recent popular opinion, otherwise your creations may as well not exist. If you cant do that cant make them popular and technical that's down to you. I wont reply to this because Im going to stop interacting with your "group" as much as possible, excluding X3M who is welcome in my games etc any time . Just wanted my opinion out there. Peace out
  20. I noticed one thing about HJK that made is so popular and liked and ive decided to incorporate it into my map making. That is its largely a 1v1 affair and the FFA is usually secondary. People really enjoy this because you get the enjoyment of a 1v1 , without so much of the stress of a real 1v1 fight, and you get to 1v1 WITH other people which is a nicer feeling for most less stress more show off type enjoyment and banter, and then there's a FFA in the same game too and a bit of a higher demand than a normal 1v1 as its sometimes 2v1 so it can build more skill, also after the 1v1 is finished there is a FFA game after its almost like 2 games in one if you know what I mean. But anyway I think that's a big part of the magic of the HJK map the one with extra tiberium in the middle, its the ability to turtle and expand the large amount of tiberium and the largely 1v1 or fair 1 on 1 rather than 2 on 1 affair at the start. So I already have brought this idea to 6 player FFA and 3v3 team games so I can capture this fun on a bigger scale but also so I can train myself and my bros up at 1v1 while playing the usual routine team games and FFA games. Im also going to do this with 2v2 maps, and 4 way FFA maps I have yet to make them. I am also going to make a map where you 1v1 while people watch that way I can bring 1v1 to an audience which is much more fun than doing a 1v1 in isolation with 1 other person, it also gives people witnesses to a loss/defeat as some lie about what happened, we do this already we call it a mini tournament its alot of fun its a great thing to do also if you only have 3 players as 3 way FFA is a drag too. Its much more fun than standard 1v1. People want to watch learn, be watched, show off have a laugh/banter etc as they take turns to 1v1 and you cant do that on normal 1v1 maps so they don't get used for that reason too, this is alot more fun for people which is a big motivator for me to make maps. I hope to reduce the boring standard 1v1 games that few people like anyway and bring people together into groups where we can have more fun together. Thanks for the tips guys that for me was worth the negativity but its the ban baiting corruption, negative mean attitudes and "phoney wanna be intellectually superior" and elitist ego's that have finally lead me away from my long standing attempts at being nice co-operative and professional, I will no longer be trying to assist or help with other peoples ideas nor will I be trying to spread their maps which most people do not like but ive been trying to do this anyway to be nice positive and co-operative, nor will I be taking or implementing their subjective view points as seriously as I was trying to do before. (I think also its good for all of us or at least me if I end the toxic interactions). Now im just going to do my own thing that I love to do and that is to compete at the game and with maps, increase fun and enjoyment for the majority I love the huge positive feedback I get, it makes me very happy, and also to implement my own ideas this I find fulfilling. Kind but competitive regards to all , and Adios!
  21. Im glad you are so happy and not trying to get me back.... Peace bro
  22. I have always beaten you from my buggy spam days till recently, sure you win some but I mean I win more times than you do, (I don't literally mean I beat you all the time that of course isn't true) our last game who won the majority of the games? PHD and Ggeneral were watching ! You cant deny it now . We both know its true also, you know the truth and I do and that will never go away either. Also I shouldn't have even been able to touch you as a new guy, and you're the guy that specialises and near exclusively makes and plays only 1v1 and uve been playing for way longer than me have loads more knowledge and experience and time. Cmon man accept the truth. Also I have to log in after a different name to get a match with you and whenever I try to fight you when uve set up a match you make excuses say maybe later and so on. You get angry when I play you under a different name. Also I had no experience vs good GDI players at all it was a massive change in meta for me vs you every time and not the other way around on top of that you are unorthodox in style giving you yet more experience advantage and you still lose more than me than the other way around. And its always on your map you always had map advantage to boot. Low tiberium everything, low familiarity for me everything in your favour and you still lose more times than not. Oh anyway I think its a misunderstanding I mean I beat you more often than you beat me, so yes that's what I meant by that. So a misunderstanding, As for pence that's what he says and claims I never said anything other than that, Im always sceptical of his claims, if it was true however hes equal with you on your map, playing your game, and he only plays cnc1 a little he plays tiberium sun the most so hes only a part time player for cnc1 and very new much newer than me. Only you and Pence know if this one is true or not. Edit: 1 thing I will add though is that you said above here that you haven't played pence recently and in another post you said you played him about a month ago and you couldn't see any depth to his engineer game, you implied their in that engineer tips thread/cheese thread that you had played him recently, but deny it ever happened here.
  23. A new update to the rankings (remember these rankings are constantly in flux so don't be disappointed if your ranking is lower it can very easily change depending on how active etc you are, this is also just an approximation my input from my experience if you like to be adapted with other peoples input and experience, especially with regards to phd vs lovehandles) Ferret has lost his number 1 spot due to what I presume is inactivity, he has lost to much lower ranking guys as of late and in a bad way. SMT has improved significantly and recently beat white in a 1v1 he truly is elite now a new member of the elite Speedy Dash is excellent Chem has improved as of late and has gone up the rankings, he keeps improving Ghost is a new member of the elite , an old pro that just came back, he is already high up the food chain, White has decreased in rank due to losing to SMT and via comparison like I can beat SMT and others that can beat white and so I now rank above white it becomes clear after a while even if 2 ppl don't face off he beat me b4 when I was a buggy spammer fair n square but im not longer that buggy spammer I play completely differently and much better now Cn2mc ive beaten always, and he recently drawed with Mike Pence according to pence not sure if that's true or not Weaver has had a what seems to be a decreased ability so much so that he cant even hang with the regulars' anymore, which is crazy since he was near top 5 just a short time ago, I think he has declined and the group of regulars has increased in skill . I beat weaver very easily multiple times now after a long lay off on holiday. Step it up Weave! I know you are better than this! Lovehandles remains rusty as hell but still potent as hell PHD is likely number 1 but there is still doubt in my mind I cant handle Lovehandles at all, PHD I can compete with, with Lovehandles its not even competitive for me he wipes the floor with me totally and utterly. Epheraim has been very inactive and so has probably fallen in rank as others have improved (same situation as Ferret but he hasn't played enough to confirm this its just a guess) Mike Pence has gone up in rank despite playing multiple games and only being part time player of cnc1, he supposedly had a draw game with cn2mc , so at least cn2mc has the guts to face people in 1v1 this is good too many hiders and coward trying to protect their rank in the top 10 So the new rankings in my mind are as follows. 1) Lovehandles (It could be PHD but from my experience Lovehandles is harder and its not even competitive for me, Ive heard that PHD beat Love but Lovehandles is the type of guy that says someone is stronger when they are not, just because hes such a humble guy, I also didn't see or hear that PHD beat him from proper sources this is just what some ppl have said, problem is lovehandles demotes himself unfairly hes so humble so he spreads the wrong rumours. 2) PHD, could be number 1, but it doesn't fit my experience of playing both of them nor have I got proper confirmation, please start recording game guys we want to see the rpos go at it and get the confirmation of the wins the evidence. But yea rrumour has it that PHD is number 1 and that he beat Lovehandles, also note I am having very close fights with PHD but not Lovehandles , the same is true of Ferret vs Lovehandles my experience of Love seems vastly different to Ferrets and PHD's and my experience of the other 2 is that they are not in the same league as Lovehandles but apparently that's not the case. It just goes against my personal experience so I find it hard to believe or accept. 3) Chem, I believe I am 3rd now, I beat Ferret as of late easily, I believe SMT and other lower ranking guys have beaten Ferret too in a similar way, hes not the same guy anymore, largely but not entirely due to inactivity (also note when ferret beat me before and recorded it I would have won had it not been for the engie that he used, I didn't defend it or use it because I thought it was against his and whites rules, I would have won and you can see that in the video if it hadn't of been for the unexpected engie taking my 2nd airfield, the one time I fight under the no engie rule and it gets used on me, so anyway Ferrets super good but Im too nice I don't state the truth when I should because I want to be nice and not cause a rift with people, but this is an unhealthy way to behave so im saying even when I was a lot worse I was competitive with ferret and now im a lot better as im used tyo the new meta) 4) Ephraim I was beating last time we played I know he mostly relies on airfields etc I believe ive advanced enough at the official meta to out rank him and that he has declined via inactivity I believe this is enough for me to out rank him but we need to fight to truly know, its just an approximation, some people stay awesome even with inactivity some do not,, we need to fight again, Ephraim may well be 3 5) SMT is now probably number 5 hes shot up the rankings hes damn good now, he beat white handily and I find him a struggle, think he beat ferret too 6) Ferret a super pro that has fallen badly perhaps due to inactivity but can perhaps rise up again if he decides to be more active, but hes going to have a hard time vs PHD on any map and Lovehandles on a map like Green Acres and not on a map like blistering sands , also it would be good to see Lovehandles in shape and start facing people that way, rather than doing it in such a rusty state. 7) White a solid player very technical knowledgeable and experienced hard for almost anyone bar the top 2 Mike Pence so hard to know who is better with him and white because white will not fight him even on his own maps for whatever reason that we do not know.... he drew with cn2mc lately but I give him the edge over cn2mc because I find him harder even tho I fight him all the time, and he faced cn2mc at his own maps so home advantage. 9). Cn2mc is an expert at 1v1 only, with lots of experience behind him and lots of knowledge of the game, 10) Ghost is ace newly active but an ancient player 11 Speedy Dash still damn good but havnt seen him play as much lately so I have to ranking him according to how he played last time we played im not sure if hes improved or stayed the same im ranking him as if hes the same its SMT that's changed so much and changed the dynamic, id like to see him vs speedy and fight speedy myself 12 Cat is like a lesser version of white but still very good, he may be better than speedy Sorry if this hurts anyone's feelings our egos are on the line here, but I have to be as objective as I can be, and that often means I have to hurt the feelings of people I like in order to be truly objective. Also remember you can soon disprove me if you want just ask for a 1v1 and Im no coward I will fight anyone!! This is also just my input it needs to be cross examined with other peoples to get a more accurate list. Also 3- 9 is highly volatile meaning anyone of them can drastically change position at anytime its very close Also note these rankings are way more impressive than they seem, when Ferret or Lovehandles or PHD go to red alert they are very high up compared with the majority of players id say top 10% easily if not top 5% (most people you consider noob in ra1 are actually average) and they have a huge number of players so you can see even though our numbers are small we are a super tough crowd. Same applied to much larger numbers of people in other games, that void of average players gets much larger and the elite doesn't increase anywhere near as much
  24. 1) If its a true remaster I think it would be wise to take a que from a previous game title that was in a similar situation and did a fanatic and successful job of updating a classic game without ruining it for alot of people, it was basically a big success and managed to keep everyone happy. So it would probably be a good idea to employ the same strategy. The game is called street fighter 2 and even though its not the same genre of game even, it has a lot of parallels, it was one the defining games of its genre, an older game, it had a specific feel, a specific balance which was slightly flawed, and people had invested alot of time in it and developed alot of skill on it. The game that remastered it was called super street fighter 2 turbo HD remix. It didn't change much but it did update the graphics so they looked the simlar but better the music which was just updated in quality and tweaked more or less, and it kept the same feel the same physics the same balance (the balance was tweaked a tiny bit and I think that was an option you can turn on and off even for the balance like classic mode and updated mode) and so the skillset of the players could transfer over almost directly into the new game as did the feel and the comfort zone feel/factor. I think they got just right they maintained a classic and everything everyone loves about it and all the investment of time skill and familiarity with how the game feels was kept in. So there was no disconnect it felt like it was the same game with a graphics music balance and features boost! I think the same should be done with cnc1 remastered, allow bigger maps more people, an optional slightly improved balance, higher quality versions of the same music and graphics, get rid of left side and bottom advantage, keep the same physics, feel, comfort zone, and skill investment. 2) If its a remake on a different engine I think the command and conquer 3 is a wise game to learn from it was a success because it kept everything that people love about cnc1, static base building , tiberium harvesting, basic tanks and military equipment not walkers etc basic looking military equipment all the core fundamentals that made the command and conquer popular in the 1st place, it didn't deviate away from the proven core design, everything appealed to the majority of cnc1 fans, this second answer will annoy lots of very hard core fans that didn't like cnc3 but they are a minority and therefore less important than the majority in my opinion, less important for profit too. I would recommend if its a remake that a lot of nostalgia is involved alot of the looks buildings feel and units are reused, and then add a bit of variety in the same style as the original command and conquer 1, so that mix of near future sci fi and current military equipment could be extended with extra units from our current military involved in the new game, perhaps deeper air and navy would be nice, for me at least it would. I cant comment on ra1 it so fundamentally broken with infinite money and that's where peoples skill sets and comfort zones are developed and invested, that it seems a much harder problem to solve and a harder game to remaster perhaps infinite money should be an option or game mode that way havening 2 options can please everyone. Kind regards, Chem (will update for grammar in a bit) I see don't make multiple suggestions as the advice given but this is really only 2 suggestions and I went into detail about them, I can cut out the detail but then it wouldn't make much sense and I wouldn't be able to communicate what I wanted.
  25. Don't expect them to catch on for now or any FFA maps for that matter, everyone has been playing teams games almost exclusively as of late, Zodiac see's a lot of action but a few are against it, the turtle players really don't like it so I have to switch it to another 2v2 map sometimes, but we will go back to ffa at some point and then these maps will see some action and whether they stick or not is out of my control, but I will definitely be putting them out there, I know I will enjoy playing them.
