  1. Does anyone know who or what Xeoning is?
  2. I was referring to 1 reffing Harv bombs idiot. don’t even know what an Arnold is. Harv bombs have been discussed to death with the low life’s that use them defending with 0 points or substance and the rational unbiased people clearly outlining how they are abusively over powered. it doesn’t matter because they’ll never be nerfed. Just because it’s not cheating doesn’t make it a non-pathetic and pointless cheap way to get a win.
  3. Things aren’t closing or even getting bad here at the pace I expected so I’m putting my PC back on the table.. sorry for confusion and changes. I don’t know if anyone’s even reading these posts or cares.
  4. Looks like many of us will be having a bit of free time to indulge in over the next several weeks/months. I am offering cash rewards for the Tiberian Sun QM ladder in the following categories es. Rank 1: $100 Rank 2: $50 Rank 3: 25$ Most games played over 5 minutes long: $25 (rank prizes can only go to unique players so don’t bother trying to winning all 3 spots with different usernames) No one will be restricted from winnings including toxic people that I hate. Lets try to have some fun while life/society is annoying and problematic. I know it’s not much but if people are participating and enjoying it I may consider increasing amounts and extending to future months. Also, a lot of people are looking for YouTube content so consider recording and uploading your games!
  5. Greetings commanders, I regret that I need to make an update to this thread. due to concerns with the our current health/wellness concerns with covid 19 I am retracting my physical PC as a reward for this months tournament. I will however be replacing it with a simple $500 reward in the form of WU/PayPal or whatever transfer method I and the winner can agree on. Apologies to those who were looking forward to playing on my 1337 machine with the legacy of my gaming prowess attached. But I can’t/won’t go through the shipping process in the near future.
  6. bump Prize still available despite troll content being left in the thread for a week+ To be clear, it will go to the highest rank player that isn’t to sketchy/ashamed/proud to provide their address and accept the reward. Ill consider sending it to a trusted 3rd party to relay to you if you think I’m going send you a bomb or start spying on you. Sorry but I won’t ship to countries that don’t have reliable mail services or are currently in conflict/tensions with the United States. And Anyone who makes disrespectful comments will be automatically disqualified cuz your a bad person who won’t be rewarded under anything that’s in my control. Have a nice month!
  7. whoever wins hit me up on discord. I won’t be returning to this site or in game. I’ll check the ladder at the end of March but I probably won’t know who is who based on multi username system. lost motivation to promote or excite when my posts took more than 2 full days to show up. good luck to the players who want to compete for it. God bless the red alert community.
  8. It’s unlikely that corpsmakr will accept the prize or give a shipping address therefore you can pretty much count him out regardless of his ranking.
  9. I never said that she asked or made me do anything. Neither of us is subordinate to the other in any way.
  10. Greetings TS community After a long discussion with my wife about our relationship and my free time being used frivolously with anti social and low drive activities I’ve decided to force myself to give up gaming for the foreseeable future. In light of this I am donating my gaming rig (approx. $1000 value with a fresh SSD) as a prize for the winner of March 2020 quick match tournament. It will go to either the #1 position or the highest ranked player that isn’t to sketchy to give me their address. Good luck and have fun.
  11. Must have been stressful having pinball2k and games0n for team mates. I feel for you.
  12. Mike, having a mini nap is very useful which is why pre-cncnet the most common cheat was one that allowed you to have a mini map without a radar. The reason it’s sold in high level game play is because it gives you money that you need to invest elsewhere and buying it again later on is an investment that could be made into offense/defense. Furthermore, it’s a crutch that arguably reduces your awareness skills if you are depending on it. Personlly, I tend to rebuild my radar as I expand to middle if I’m ahead because when my opponent is in desperation mode they might start to depend on sneaky attacks similar to the scenario you mentioned. But I would only consider building it if my lead was significant and I did a poor job scouting for some reason. Practice your scouting and development of your map awareness skills so that nothing the radar gives you is relevant. And invest that money towards your unit production. It’s much more likely that Nate lost out of being rusty than not having a radar.
  13. Although I don’t want to speak as if I have credible inside information to the developers minds when I don’t u like some people. I think it’s safe to say they didn’t intend to make artilary be a 1 stop solution for all of nods problems. Just because it’s nit effective in every defensive scenario doesn’t mean it’s flawed. Also, I don’t understand how corps/moles win loss ratio is relevant to this discussion. You said Mola doesn’t use Artillery and I pointed out that his games never last long enough for them to become useful. However, if you watch the few games he has posted that last beyond his main tib patch you will recognize multiple opportunities where artilary would have been a game changer if he decided to use them. Artillery is a supplement to defense. A back line unit that requires fodder. In combination with which it is very powerful. On firestorm they are still useful for base walking fights. For example when you are middle fighting on terraces artilary and juggernauts do heavy damage to enemy structures and can be the only way to pick off tower defense once the money starts running out.
  14. What would be the point if the unit even existing if it didn’t out range other units? It’s also extremely vulnerable to fodder and can’t hit units that are too close to it.
  15. @X3M That post is just an opinion of a low tier player. Which doesn’t include any details or sources of these “miscalculations”. There are many applications for artillery even in early game. Especially if you have a starting position that has a bottle beck entrance or cliff surroundings. Think being TL on terraces with enemy units moving between your cliff entrances. @Hungry MikeMola is not a good long game or defensive player(notice that less than 1% of his games last longer than 5-10 minutes) His play style depends on extreme aggression and pressure. Players like corpsmakr utilize them and they were much more common on old servers where the game speed wasn’t so fast. Furthermore, your reference point is limited only to terrace which is a fully open map. On large maps like river runs and forest fires artilary are extremely effective. As well as bottle necked maps like Grand Canyon and crater. GDIs mobile mechs will always have advantage on open map and nods OP stationary defense will always have advantage on larger/closed off maps that force bottle necks or cliff pathing. mola doesn’t and ever did play FS. On FS artilary/juggernauts do not hit moving targets. Which made them useless for unit defense. Artillery are equally as useful/useless as the GDI hover MRLS which has applications under the same scenarios. MRLS are trash on open maps but extremely effective on large/bottle neck maps where air units take over as the primary attack method.
