    Old Ts Forums

    ^Yes, he's up there with sonjc 😛 If I get a chance I might write up some rough background info as a lot has happened over the years, and for one reason or another, I seem to have found myself at the heart of it. Here's my old profile page from gamerwarzone, with almost 5k posts(!) If only I had that much free time nowadays...

    "Useless" units

    TBH I agree with a fair few points that IntoTheRain has made. I've been arguing for 15+ years that TS is fundamentally inbalanced and isn't really all that good from a modern standpoint. You certainly wouldn't make a game like it today. The progression is far too skewed and as you say, the 3-minutes-to-max-tech also leads to major issues in terms of how the game plays and the enjoyment non-pros can get from it. The thing you have to understand here though Rain, is that to most people on this forum, TS is THE game that got them into online gaming, and it's a game they've stuck with through thick and thin. I think you'll just have to agree to disagree on this one 😕

    Old Ts Forums

    Nice post corps Though I haven't played for years, and haven't played seriously for even more years than that, I do still like to come on here and read topics from some of the older players. In fact, this has inspired me to start sorting through my collection of random screenshots, and even look up a few old sites on the internet achive! So to start with, I thought I'd show you all something from the long distant past, c.2003, back when I was on Firestorm (where all the good players were :p), and where TRZ wished he was as cool as me and Pinball and used to troll our forums a bit. This is a screenshot from ggaming.co.uk / freestyle-gaming: OK, so next up we have something from Tibfields 2005. FS was on the way out at this point, and this was just as I was starting to move over to TS and real life started to take over for me. Check out Wuss (Reid): Next up it's cncgamer, 2006. I've tried to pick screenshots that show a selection of old players. Here are exile, t1tanrush and Ste_J: Then we've got cncwarzone 2008: Oh, and here's a good quality screenshot I actually took at the time of you giving me a compliment corps! :D Followed by gamerwarzone 2008 (I still don't know why Petter [the site owner and webmaster] thought it was a good idea to make the from cncwarzone to gamerwarzone. Considering I was an admin there for many years, I barely had more than a handful of conversations with him...): And then finally I've got an early screenshot of the cncevo project 2010. It was a good venture while it started, but lack of player uptake led to us not proceeding with it:

    Looking for some old players of TS & FS

    I remember YDT! Had some good clan battles with them back in the day. I don't play TS anymore, and haven't for years, but I do like to check out these forums from time to time.

    kaizen strategy guide gone forever

    But it's ok Tib Sun fans, cos my (better) guide still exists! View it online here: https://cnctiberiansun.wordpress.com/ Or download it as a pdf here: http://mjryder.net/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2015/05/Tiberian-Sun-guide-v4-c-Mole40k-2013.pdf The guide is now 10 years old -- can you believe it! First published in 2007, and updated in 2013, Tiberian Sun: A Player's Guide is your easy-access guide to give you simple hints and tips to improve your gameplay. :-)
  9. You clearly fail to understand the *point* here... Learning a BO will not make you good at a game: learning skills will.
  10. And this question has been asked since about 2000 lol. Sometimes people just can't see the answers that are staring them in the face ^
  11. I'm sorry Pigeon, but this is a very ignorant comment, and ignores the fact that Starcraft and TS are two very different games. I say this as the guy who *did* write the strategy guide, back in 2007, with a few updates in 2013 and later. It's now pretty well search optimised, and given the stats linking not only from my own website, but also from the blog version of the guide, I reckon a large number of players are playing on xwis or cncnet just because of my guide. Not trying to blow my own trumpet, but we've been there and done that you know -- many, many years ago. Honestly, you all need to accept that TS is not appealing to the same audience it was appealing to back in 1999. I was 14 back then and wanted to play online to show off and beat my mates. Kids these days don't care about the likes of TS when they can play better games on their smart phones. The world is a very different place to what it was in 1999 -- the community needs to adapt to reflect this.

    Giants build orders

    Actually, if I remember right, isn't the BO 'pp-barracks-(scout a bit)-ref-war-nodrescue quits' ?

    To my old TS bitches

    P.S. I quit years ago now. I did try to log on for a few random games about a year or so ago, but no one wanted to help me with my W10 / graphics card issues. Well, it's your loss TS is all I can say

    To my old TS bitches

    RightAnglez, I don't live in London anymore -- I lived there for ~ 5 years though. I'm now in Lancaster. It's nice up here, 'cept it rains all the time! I did meet Conor (Cone91) yes, but not his mum (Minted69), or Darren (l3urberry) I had completely forgotten about it tbh it was so long ago, but for some reason I thought it would be a good idea to go down to Brighton one day and meet him.
