The new update the game has made this game a far worse game for me
I have been doing much Research of my own hours of testing
This is a complex topic that have too sides i understand this
nicknamed Steroid Tanking by crush, many alternative ways of tanking turned out too exist
the known ways of tanking are q tanking gq tanking & sgq tanking
the crush video link cheat methed to used here ,,,> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J7Qhj9Nqtx8
alt & g & q tanking worked before the update for some pros
it no longer works
I don^t fully understand the buttons used or the timing needed
also gq & q together sametime I used myself mostly in mini q master games vs others pros noobs & the ai no longer works
too understand what this is dual q & gq marge into one
gq-ing your tanks & q-ing your tanks at the same time has the traits of both q & gq is powerfull tanks auto fire like in gq but by also q-ing u also fire kill more tanks by aiming your self as well
The topic cheating come up on Steroid Tanking yes many players used the hotkey editer too bind keys into one button yes I agree this is cheating
but Steroid Tanking its self is not cheating and should not be considerd as cheating it was used be possable hold down 2 buttons on your keyboard same time tank this way do the same kind of thing without cheating of any kind at least with my way of using it
Steroid Tanking was a closely guarded secret by many pros who used it myself too i didn't know other pros had there own ways of using it but also I know there was lot more out there then what meets the eye
In a black & white world of q gq & sgq its turns out colour existed too
i wish only too preserve game mechanics from being lost forever
I have many online friends on cncnet i don't want lose my friend ships and the game used to the best game in the world to me there never be a game as this one was
however am looking for a new game get into now. red alert 1 was good in its day
i don't want to cause a butterfly effect but i know philly retire too if I do a lot players be upset too petersky cloutiers return not go well 13clan members be upset many others friends of mine too
but the fun in the game is gone for me becouse this patch and update has set the game on the wrong path
what am asking for is fix the patch so hotkeys work without using cheats too gq & q same time is a tanking style where tanks can be in a q & gq state at the same time and i wish safe as many other ways of tanking as possable
but i dont want players using key binding as this is cheating but there is a differences holding down many buttons with fingers on keyboard and using the hotkey editer to do this
The level of play in red alert 1 has gone up over the years for many years players didn't know gq existed only use q
ehy used gq as well he know of it before many others its what made him so powerful in tank batties
sadly my understanding of far past is limited but I been here for a long time about 7 years online back then updates didn't hurt the game in any way i know of at least
ehy was skilled at making super tesla too ended up getting a update that got super tesla added bug fix settings
i think another fix is just add Steroid Tanking as a setting players room host can turn on or off same way super tesla works
it make both sides happy
red alert 1 is a very unique game hotkeys & base walking
being able too q & gq simultaneously 1 group of tanks is what made game fun for me
my decision too retire or not is not set in stone all options are on the table its not too late yet
its depends on if this update patch gets fixed or not and the responses too my posts

In Red Alert 1 since there are so few players already, there is a big issue of players camping the top 3 spots and then not playing at all which effectively causes the ladder to be unplayable on certain days. I think a decay system should be an option for each ladder to be enabled and mitigate this issue. Decay settings would be a signifcant improvement, but the grace period and amount of decay should be customizable like the other settings.
- add ability to set grace period
- ability to set the % of total points lost per day after grace period is up
- ability to set the lowest rank to be affected and/or make it so points cannot decay lower than (ie. 5th rank's points)
- display to players if they are going to decay and how long until they do
Thank you for creating the quickmatch ladder. I hope the devs all enjoyed doing so.
First time using cncnet, I keep getting kicked whenever I join a game in the lobby but don't understand why. Sometimes I get a message saying no connection or problem with connection from one of the players. Or ping will come up with my name as NA. When I join a game in the lobby there's usually no green "I'm ready" button in the bottom left, it's only there if I try host a game (but then when I click it says waiting to connect, please try again in a few seconds or something).
Can anyone advise, or help troubleshoot? I'm guessing there's a connection issue my end but dont know how to diagnose.
(I have managed somehow to play two online games, no idea why it worked then but not most of the time).
