Re: Etiquette

Personally, I'd like OpenRA be a welcoming community . Nobody should be made to feel unwelcome either by unpleasant behaviour or because they are not aware of expectations and are criticised for breaking social norms. For instance, when I first started I was unclear whether it was acceptable to sur...

One day OpenRA will include a second evolutionary branch, OMnomRA. It's kinda catchy! :)

Cue bitter balance discussion over, like, pill boxes or something.

I interpreted this as [GDave] further trying to get under my skin. GDave intentionally getting under your skin? The hell you say?! As much as GDave makes me roll my eyes, he is a darn good player. It's nice to see that he took the time to reach out and patch things up. :) I once stumbled upon a You...

Running Multiple Instances - Now a Thing?

I'm not sure if this is by design or a bug in my system, but I can run multiple instances of OpenRA. This does include starting matches...

If your competitor isn't paying attention to IPs, I suppose you could cheat via playing on both sides....

Not only does the current system work, but the folks who decide on the changes have done an excellent job. :)

Tech'ing up too fast and being invaded 10 minutes into a game can be kind of entertaining. The opposing player rushes your base with 118 units and you have, like 9. :)

Horrible typo on my part. I DID NOT KNOW THIS.

Without the not, the previous post sound really snarky when it should actually be appreciative. Sorry about that.

I mostly agree with you and I think we're approaching this from different angles and comparing different units. You're talking how to counter tactics while talking I'm about removing unintended consequences. When I see a player producing a unit for the sole purpose of blocking production, it's a red...

If a tactic is insanely time and resource efficient, then said tactic needs to be insanely risky to be included in a balanced game. I should not able to shut down your production lines during an attack by sacrificing a few tanks. Tanks should not be produced to block off an enemy war factory. If an ...
