  1. Only was a matter of time.... Also shows just why Spies are broken beyond all fuck. Easy 12k with no effort whatsoever.
  2. What kind of a test is this? Prisms vs Rhinos?.... Besides it depends on the map and how many Rhinos vs Prisms. I'd actually argue that in a lot of situations the Prisms will take a dump on Rhinos. Let's compare it to Battlelab units.... Prisms vs Masterminds.... you just run away and they'll never catch you. Prisms vs Mirages..... Mirages get absolutely bamboozled. Prisms vs Apocs....LOL. Then you also apply the Desolator nerf and the fact that a single Prism can wipe out an entire base without getting hit once.... Making almost every single static defense building absolutely worthless... Hmmm...... So not only it's the best artillery unit, great against infantry and pretty good against MOST vehicles.... And the armor is not too shabby, it takes like 3 Rhino hits to kill one Prism.... that's it if the Rhino shells actually hit... and that's without Spies.... As much as I like this patch, there are serious problems with this as I and others have pointed out. Why on Earth have you made that you cannot dodge Harriers or Black Eagles? Dodging them took at least some skill. They're more useful than Kirovs as is, and yet you buff them even more. And let's say some noob sends Black Eagles on your MCV. Wtf are you supposed to do now? You can't dodge them anymore. Would it not make more sense to simply reduce the price of it? Sniper IFV one shotting drones.... tell me, which unit you're supposed to use to catch up an IFV then as Soviets? It's not like Sniper IFV is completely useless against drones pre nerf...You eat the drone and then repair it with another IFV. Now you don't even need to do that. By the way, France isn't that bad now. The fact that your units actually now autotarget the GCs nerfed them pretty bad. It could maybe even be further nerfed by a slight HP reduction. I'm more concerned about the god damn Spies.... this unit is simply too good for what it costs and the effort it takes. Plz toggle to turn that shit off....
  3. I really like Russia now. Mixing Teslas with Rhinos is simply amazing. So many players think Russia still sucks and get absolutely bamboozled. Worked great against GI/France turtles, Yuri, Rhino spammers and most importantly.... Skillz0r Battleforts. In fact I barely use Iraq at this point....
  4. But that's the thing. All Allied Battlelab units take a dump on Apocs. In fact I wouldn't even use Apocs against Grizzlies. Simply because Rhinos are faster, are more numerous, don't get cheesed by Air units, and their armor is good enough. Yuri doesn't even think about Apocs, they're completely useless against Masterminds, Discs, Yuri clones, Magnetrons. There's only 1 map where I can think Apocs are useful, same with Kirovs....The noob Rekool maps. And why is that? Because you have unlimited money there and instant build.... Most of the time they still get shat on by Allied still, even with all these map manipulations. Honestly I think what Apocs need is splash damage, doesn't need to be massive. For one it'd help dealing with "Skillz0r" Mirages. Get rid of the shitty missiles, why would I need poor man's Patriot when Soviets have Flaks? Lower the cost a bit. Speed can be 5 if Rhino is at 6. If Battlefort is an issue then nerf that POS unit.
  5. You know what, I actually agree. There was a game where we got absolutely shat on by someone who spied a noob, and then spammed Veteran Grizzlies. They're basically Rhino tanks but better. I really can't stand Spies...
  6. ...What are you talking about??? Apocs being the most cost-effective unit???....... Are we playing the same game? Mirages + rockies annihilate Apocs. Thanks to the fact that all the Allied player needs to do is put a few Rockies infront of Mirages, and Apocs will use their shitty missiles instead of canons. And then the fact that the Soviet player needs to click on each Mirage, which in turn slows down the Apocs on each attack order due to the stupid "acceleration". Meanwhile the Allied "pr0 pliar" picks his nose. Battleforts absolutely destroy them without suffering a SINGLE loss. And now you have Prisms that fire on the move...Apocs will never catch up to them, and as soon as a single Elite Prism shows up.... Apocs stand no chance. Hell I bet you that even Veteran Grizzles will find more uses than Apocs. The most cost-effective Soviet tank is the Rhino. Apocs are too costly, take too long to build, are too slow, easily cheesed and even with fire on the move have barely any use.
  7. But isn't that the point of Teching up? Allies don't build Grizzlies when they get Battlelab. Unless they get free, totally earned Veteran promotions via Spy, and even then it's a rarity. Apocs still take a long time to build, so fielding them in large numbers is out of the question. And you can still cheese them with Air units....
  8. Yeah, Sniper IFV one-shotting drones is laughable. I played around 15 games today with this patch, here's what I liked: Tesla tanks are monsters now. For some reason Robo tanks take a lot of bolts to get destroyed though. I thought they were light armored? German TDs mixed with Prisms were great. However I think TDs should be able to fire on the move, especially considering they cost $900 now but have no turret. People actually played as Cuba and Libya. Here's what I didn't like: Screw Prisms. I got 3 Elite Prisms really easily in one game, and they just destroyed everything and everyone. It was already an OP, brainless unit. And now you made it even more brainless. Like wtf is a Soviet player supposed to do against Prisms who he cannot catch up, it constantly moves, doesn't miss, outranges everything bar V3 or deployed crappy choppers, does crazy AOE, slow downs units when hit, and further buffed with Desos doing less damage to Light armor? It got so crazy in fact that I wasn't even afraid of Battleforts, another braindead OP unit from the Allies. You buff Prisms, barely change anything about Battleforts, and do nothing about Spies. Can you just imagine how cancerous Prisms will be now? Apocs are still trash. Who's going to run them over with Battleforts? The piece of shit will die long before that.
  9. Prisms need their fire on the move removed ASAP. So easy to get them into Elite, and then there's balls all anyone can do against them now.
  10. Tesla tanks are actually useful now.
  11. Apocs are still trash imo. Remove the shitty AA missiles, they do more harm than good, lower the cost. It's one of the reasons why Rhino is superior, you cannot cheese it to shoot AA instead of main canon. Or at least keep these changes, but let it prioritise ground units first. Sniper IFV can one shot drones.... What, why? No Germany changes? TD is the one that needs to one shot drones. Magnetron changes are good.
  12. It really depends on the map.... 4v4 Cliffy and Yuri is still crazy powerful, anything smaller and he's pretty weak with this on. The entire game is an unbalanced mess which is a staple of Westwood games. Red Alert, Dune... they all had awful balancing. I'd say the biggest offender is the Allies. They have so many units that have either at least a use or straight up break the game. Spies for example are pretty useless on their own. Put them into IFV and it's almost a 99% success rate to infiltrate and get those free promotions. Veteran Allied units absolutely shit on either Soviet or even pre-nerf Yuri, with any unit: Grizzly, Prism, Mirage, BF, Rockies.... Hell the floating BF that rains down missiles while being pulled by Mags is something else... Not one unit can do this, but since BF is such a Underpowered unit.../s Speaking of which, a toggle to disable Spies would be amazing. Soviets really only have 1 unit that holds them together and that's the Rhino. The rest is either situational or straight up junk. I'm not sure if you're planning to do more balancing but these will have to be very delicate changes. Nerf the Rhino and the entire Soviet ground tree is absolutely worthless, unless other units get crazy buffs. The naval depends on the map, but most servers run maps that have no naval so it's not that big of a deal.

    Would be awesome, even if it's some basic support.
  14. v3's do suck. even the 3rd level "nuke" is hilariously bad.
  15. allied are the best, not op. westwood was an american company and einstein was the main scientist. learn the difference, communist.
  16. lol choppers....useless unit. unless it's ww5 where anything soviet is overbuffed just so they would have a chance against allies. ww5 has been created by a communist.
  17. you have to be extremely bad at this game if you lose 50 mirages to 1 deso 1 mirage = 2 desos you communist but thanks for admitting that allies are the best
  18. yes i also love spies a horde of lvl1 prisms or mirages or battlefortress going straight to lvl3 by doing absolutely nothing....allies are the best! ! ! lvl3 prims or mirages or battlefortress >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> any commie unit, regardless of level (mostly lvl 0 outplayed) as soon as spy enters wf, barracks, lab or ref communist can just get the fuck out and go play rhino battles with bots! it's a good thing that communists have nothing but rhinos and desos. 1 prism tank can own entire commie base, even if he has has spent $3000000 on defenses. communist doesnt have this luxury. 50 prisms > 75 rhinos. 50 prisms > 100 desos. 100 guardian gi's > 50 rhinos. 1 battlefortress with 5 snipers > 10000 desos 1 robo tank > 1000 desos 100 prisms > 100 apocs 80 prisms + 20 rocketteers > 110 apocs etc etc etc
  19. i like how allies have answers for everything. desos? robo tanks are 100% immune against radiation, battlefortress + sniper/seals, harriers, rocketeers.....the rest of special units are so useless german tank destroyer is better. communists don't have this luxury. i love allies on top v bottom!!! as soon as mirage or prism rides out from the wf, it's gg to any communist worshiper. i also like how spy basically give prism tanks rhino armor because fuck you i deserve to win.
  20. hahah a 17 year old game with the developer six feet under can bring the most outta you people. laters!
  22. yea it does. pretty sure i kicked your ass before too. i'm the ww5/redzones/aidschallenge champion!
  23. also spy is great for only $1000 or so you can get free tech, free exp or free 20k. not too shabby. technically speaking 1 seal or tanya can also sink 100 dreadnoughts. name one commie unit that has such value. damn, allied has everything covered!
