whats the lamest type of RA1 Player?

Recommended Posts

I personally think its the people that rush your base with 10 to 15 small tanks within the first few minutes. yes it is a viable strategy, but its also a lame one that takes absolutely no skills. Build a couple war factories and kick small tanks out is the full extent of their gaming skills. 9 Out of 10 times if you stop this rush they will abort the game because that was their entire bag of tricks.

then 9 out of 10 times you win

 

IMHO the lamest type of player is the one who whines about how others play

The lamest type of player is the one that wants to build a base and doest attack. Please play skirmish if you want to sim city your base

I lolled at the sim citying the base.

 

What about those who beg you to stop attacking them?

I encountered plenty of those in the ancient past. Are there still of those around?

i think basewalking is lame... while anything is a "viable tactic" i very much doubt that base walking was at the forefront of the developers' mind when making RA

Why? I'd see that as a challenge. Finding weakness in their turtling, or just bleeding their resources dry. Heck, I once played a game where my opponent thought it'd be fun if I would just let him build a gigantic armoured base while leaving each other alone and then I'd have to try to actually conquer it. Realistically, he wasn't even trying to win. Sometimes the point is not to win, but just to have fun.

Well, I agree with having fun when dealing with a turtler.

 

However, Sim City base means actually a good looking base with walls around etc. Like how most bases where designed in TD.

Nice wall around even if there are cliffs, with 2 turrets in front of an entrance and 2 obelisks in the back with 2 sam site's. It looks good, but takes time and well, is destroyed in an instant.

Yeah you are right. I mean players that want to build a good looking base. Turtling is a strategy so this is no problem.

 

I mostly mean players that want to play like a campaign mission. Building good looking bases surrounded by wall, attacking with a small group of tanks, etc. Most of the time these players get mad when you dont do the same :roll:

i won my first games when someone told me to make 5 tanks on a standard map or 7 tanks on a money map and then just attack :D Good players know how to stop these rushes tho, so i cannot suggest anyone to play like this (thats what people call jewing in red alert)

Hah! In TS, maybe, where building walls is like, ten times faster, but in TD? No, that's indeed utterly useless. I only use walls in choke points there, and to reinforce my Obelisks/AGTs  :P

Surely the lamest player is one who picks a map with rules edits.

 

No power and all 8 teslas firing. I call that bolooks.

I admit that I've done that once.

 

I played skirmish and managed to trap a harvester while killing everyone else.

 

With no more threats, I took my time to build a NOD city.

 

After I got bored, I created a bunch of soldiers and had them all group up into a specific location. Then I launched a nuclear rocket right in the middle as I watched them all burn to death.

 

After I got bored again, I created a bunch of flamethrowers and had them all walk together through a huge tiberium patch. As soon as the first guy died, he torched the rest of the team.

 

Yeah... I was bored. ;)
