    I think it’s time..

    With me trying to develop myself, and create a good future I think it’s time for me to say farewell, this isn’t to say I won’t come back and play in the long-term future. But after buying a new laptop, I just can’t afford to fall behind in my career or personal development. This is my goodbye post. ive had a lot of ups and downs in my Ra2/yr career and my fair share of complete failures on big stages. Some consisting of Getting owned by moon3 5-0 infront of thousands of viewers.. and only training 2 out of the 7 days I had before hand is something I’ll always regret. Beating ico0’s yuri with my sov on heck in the CNCnet tournament with sharp decision making and tactical play, only to get owned by Marko in the next match with the crowd yelling for me to make one simple decision that would have made me fair much better, recorded for everyone to see again and again. Gaining 1000+ clan points by myself on xwis only for my teammates to lose In the last hours of the month for our clan not to reach hof.. the list goes on. I did have my fair share of accomplishments as well, I was once a top 5 Qmer on xwis. Was a part of an xwis clan that got the most points in history before they allowed you to win 5 times in a 24 hour period(even with the 5 win rule our record was never broken) I was lucky enough to have 3 top tier Clanning partners(main partners if you will, I have had many great partners)that helped me hone my skills and have a reputation of being a highly advanced 2v2er known for agile control of units and good decision making. These partners being Adam,Latof, and Brett. I’ve won 2v2 tournaments for money and was fortunate enough to play In many eras of this game, and be good enough to meet the top players of each one. I did my fair share for the yr community as well. Ive hosted and sponsored tournaments. Co-created the clan “tra1n” which at it’s peak maxed out the number of players in a clan with its priority being the training of noobs into pros, I was able to convince many pros to contribute. In the end I was never able to fully achieve what I had hoped for, but my greatest feats on this game were getting rank 1 2-man clans in all eras of this game, and a top 5 2 man clan with just us both being America, Being known as having fantastic tank control and micro, and getting a rank 3 in xwis QM. I will leave this game as a top 50 player, and an even better team player/strategist. U may see me pop up randomly If this game continue to survive, but it seems my devotion to this game has left me. I’ve met so many personalities on this game and spent most of my childhood playing YR instead of concentrating on school. So it will never leave me, but it’s just time for me to concentrate on my future.... until we meet again! edit: I have a bunch of build orders/tactics/ for maps and factions if anyone is interested in my archive just send me a Pm

    Top 10 Things CNCNET YR needs

    here are some off the wall things And some thoughts to you’re points. -Better AI: Someone on this forum already made a very strong ai, can’t you just copy and paste the code and make a level above brutal ai? -badges were awesome, there are a lot of people who did(and still might) dedicate a lot of time to the game in order to get a difficult badge showing next to their name for the rest of their cnc career. -patches and updates: this would be super fun! The initial update I think we would need a bunch of veteran players on discord talking, because text wouldn’t be enough.. this would be the hardest part. i think you pretty much hit all the main points though, what a great post!
  7. Hi all, I’m looking to purchase a new computer mainly to be used for recording and mixing audio, a long with some CnC of course. My question is.. does anyone here know what I can get for a good price? I’m willing to spend 500-709 for a computer tower. I’d imagine refurbished computers with warranties are a good deal?just wondering if anyone here has experience. Any input would be great!

    How to beat yuri?

    OniOn has some good points/strategies So lets go Into depth on them this post I directed towards onion or anyone else who is knowledgeable, I mean no disrespect as my posts are a means to spark conversations to make noobs and high level players alike understand. To simplify these things if you will, that’s the goal, but anyways addressing onions points: sovs- Do you really think 6 tanks can kill a yuris base in a minute? I hate revealing how to play yuri better but all top yuris(if any are left) have 5-15 Gatling bunkers in there base when they know it’s going to be a long grinding game. A good technique for sure but definitely not the win-all. I’ve seen some yuris wall their units to protect from drones... and don’t forget they get all of their money back when they grind their units. So you have to use drones defensively or take advantage of the quick+1 you get before it becomes -1. Also you don’t mention seige choppers which I think are vital against yuri? What are your thoughts on those? I’ll leave it at this for now. allied- If I remember correctly 1gat>ggi ifv? Regardless, ggi ifvs are a strong unit but not so sure that I would opt for 2ggi ifvs over a harrier(difference of 400 dollars). I think grizzlies and a harrier are needed more to defend and 2 gi ifvs can be used to attack slaves early if you go that route. The problem isn’t beating yuri when you are teched, it’s getting teched as allies with a strong economy that is the problem. Yuri has the deadly “wave tactics “ and while I forget the exact teams/timing it goes something like this... 1st wave: 2gats,3lashers,brute,mag 2ndwave:+MM and/or disc 3rdwave:+2discs(that split)[the goal for yuri is to have the third wave before you can get a bf as usually the allied player is broke if surviving wave2 etc...) im not sure ggi ifvs fire in mid air and if not are easy kills for mag+Gat. But usually by the third wave ur done, these wave tactics do not include rushes etc.. but back on topic. Mass prisms own all of yuri army except discs, and when I say mass I mean 7+ anything less than 5 prisms is a waste unless u have the yuri on the ropes and you are attacking his structures. You need mirage tanks to counter master minds, and harriers are more fundamentally sound to counter mags.My question is what type of BO would you use to tech fast against an aggressive yuri player and feel comfortable to mass prism tanks?

    Who is the best player ever?

    I could train anybody who has good micro how to be the best player. It would take 2 months. They would be the best player ever. This is the new answer

    Long time red alert 2 player (Onion97)

    Yeah he passed away a few years back, me and him had some rank 1 clans and were a pretty good duo. Good times. He had a snowmobile accident. It was really sad as we grew up in the game together! But yeah glad to see a familiar face.

    How to beat yuri?

    I suppose we can break down yuri main units weaknesses and strengths and stay on topic. Magnetron- This is yuris main “support” unit for his army, and a lethal killer when it has terrain and structures in the area to drop opposing units on. Strengths: dodge planes easy, kills buildings with other units. Kills units with terrain and cliffs (trees).very hard to counter if you opt to number magnetrons and have micro, and still easy to use if you opt to use ctrl shift. Can lift navy out of water, can bring units in to take with masterminds, can stop opposing units from moving briefly, and ruin formations The perfect support unit. Weaknesses: dies in one harrier shot. Can’t target infantry. Sluggish movement. Doesn’t do any direct damage to units. Does minimal damage to structures. Common unit counters: desolators, harriers(eagles), drones. Main lethal magnetron tactic: killing miners by lifting and dropping on ore refineries. ill try to do one unit everyday when I’m bored, what are people’s thoughts on the magnetron? Anything I missed or didn’t touch on, anything you disagree with?

    How to beat yuri?

    So thought process; in order to defeat something you exploit their weaknesses. What weaknesses does the vanilla yuri faction have? We can categorize all major and minor weaknesses, I will start with a couple major: -Scouting minor: -slaves does anyone else have anything to add to these lists?
