Alting is not a big problem, it helps in certain situations only, where you lost mcv and you will get alt and lose your only wf. mostly alt is a fail. So i am ok with both alt not allowed or alt allowed.

ALT effectiveness comes from it's main objective of adding splash [even from machine gun fire (which mind doesn't splash in any other RTS)].
Especially in the case of lamer players, you'd build sentry / pillboxes to defend your factory against engineers, which then can be taken advantage of by ALTing.
 

The only time unit blocking was useful was when people would rush and ALT with their first tank, both the blocking and bonus damage is what makes ALT so powerful in these 'special' circumstances.

Yet in the above described scenario of 'unit blocking' with a single tank it's a lot more viable to just make engineers and keep fixing your factory, while in the case of multiple units adding splash damage you don't really get the chance to react.

All you can do is shout "mother*****" and sell your factory, which leaves your opponent with a tank count advantage which he can use to destroy your miners while you're there waiting for that 'new' factory to build up, which is another 2 tank advantage in production.

Back in the day even a 1 tank advantage was 'huge' in competitive games.

Probably not as effective as using your first tank, but years ago on good ol' Little Big Lake (RA2), I remember getting alted by my enemy's first miner. I lost because it caught me off guard and I didn't know what to do, plus I was too busy laughing :D.

      As the title says, My IP has been listed at DroneBL, I viewed the listing, and the section "Why?" says it's because my IP address is an 'IRC Spam Drone', Nothing suspicious happened to my IP since the last year, i played Mental Omega online today and when trying to connect, it worked really fine several hours ago, but few hours later, the 'Your IP Address has been listed at DroneBL' has been present everytime i connect to CnCNet, not only that, the exact same message is on Yuri's Revenge's CnCNet client too, what should i do? should i request removal? I'm not sure if this will result in something much worse like deleting my IP or being unable to use some servers such as Valve's matchmaking servers, Any idea what to do please?

      Greetings commanders!
      I am a big fan of YR. Very recently I realized CnCNet ladder implements some really cool features I want. For example, https://ladder.cncnet.org/ladder/11-2019/yr/games/111800, this is a typical ladder game stats page that shows which type and how many units/buildings bought/killed/left in a game. I was wondering how all these statistics were acquired technically.
      The reason I want these data is that I need to do the same thing. I'd like to develop a game bot for YR, but I find it difficult getting in-game data at runtime. Last time I had to do pure image processing and recognition, which is ineffective(You can see how badly it performs at https://www.bilibili.com/video/av23553421)
      Please let me know if anybody has an idea about how I should get these data. Appreciate it!
      Thank you!

      my client keeps crashing when i exit the game. Its a fresh install, both game and client. I have used it before with acceptable problems but now it crashes very often and i cant stay in lobbys or host them for long. 2 games in a row when im lucky and then the client crashes.

      I have the following problem, the game starts and everything is fine, when choosing to play the campaign be Soviet or allies, the Cinematics and then the loading screen can be seen, at the end it seems that the game was minimized but it is not so, the desktop is shown but the music and the sounds are still listening and when you click, you hear the units but you can't see the game, how can I solve it?
      from the launcher I can play multiplayer and skirmish, with total normality

      Hi,
      I don't receive the mail verification code, as mentioned here:
      https://forums.cncnet.org/topic/10176-dont-receive-mail-verification-code/
      You should fix or disable this, as no new players can join the quick match in yuris revenge!!
