Re: Third Shattered Paradise Tournament announced! Register until JUL 11th!

It has been a while since the last post, but with the finals in the rear mirror it's time to wrap this tumultous event up! Congratulations to Punsho , who despite the controversy surrounding his questionable use of the deploy bug managed to overcome his final opponent in a true battle of attrition; ...

Re: Send me your replays and I'll cast them!

...Time for the grand finale of the SP Tournament! Can Punsho close it out or is Icesinithol going to persist through the rough patch of games in part 2?



Some good olf-fashoined RA madness to come next week!

Re: Newcomer questions

Welcome to OpenRA! Unfortunately, the guide you've found on GitHub is very outdated since the game receives frequent updates, while all the information contained within is from before 2015. There's a ton of newer resources available, most notably the OpenRA Academy server on discord, where you'll fi...

Part two of the SP Tournament Finals series is online now! Can Icesinithol push for the win or is he going to allow Punsho to catch a break?

Re: Send me your replays and I'll cast them!

The Third Shattered Paradise Opens have concluded! In what can only be described as a messy finish, the 20-player tournament that was intended to conclude on July 26th culminated in a BO7 series between Icesinithol and Punsho two weeks behind schedule. Regardless of any organisational hurdles, this ...

Re: Vision range for units (fog of war, shroud)

Not an odd concept at all, (starcraft guardians, siege tanks - company of heroes mortar teams, anti-tank guns, tank hunters).

Before we enter a week of intensive SP tournament coverage, here's a taste of things to come in RAGL season 8:

ZxGanon versus BigBadBain! Who will prevail in the claustrophobic trench warfare of Snakes & Ladders?

Re: Third Shattered Paradise Tournament announced! Register until JUL 11th!

Thanks to all those who participated and were willing to endure the endless stream of technical and organizational issues that were the 3rd SP Tournament! Between players not showing up, internet outages and rule discussions, this was definitely an endurance round for everyone involved. All the more...

Don't meddle with the medics!

After a series of high-stakes matches, I had a great time unwinding by casting a match so goofy it almost scored peak Hi on the off-meta chart:

The OpenRA gods decided that Monday wouldn't be our day, so I had to postpone the RV stream until tonight.
