Re: A Special Announcement from EA

The way I see it EA is on strike 2 for Command and Conquer. C&C4 was the obvious big miss. Rivals is the second. There is a lot of rabid hate for EA right now so It's a very delicate situation. With that said, it can be overcome and here's my pitch on how to do it. Start with the remaster of the cla...

Re: Mechanics, engineers and scrapping and restoring husks

At the risk of sounding like a crazy person can we maybe not turn every faction into a slurry of stupidity? Where each faction is so muted that there are only stat differences between each one? If that sounds harsh it's meant to be, but not at anyone person in particular but rather the trend of "thi...

Re: RAGL Season 5 Post Season Discussion

Hey Cam I'm pretty sure you're on discord but you can Pm me, netnazgul, or .1 for info on the RAGL paypal. As to having a 20$ buy in for masters that sounds all well and good but that feels like a punishment to people who have outside shots of winning it back. I know I would be reluctant to pay that...

Re: RAGL Season 5 Post Season Discussion

Definite way to identify 3rd party macro use: Their APM spikes from 20-30 to 50+ in a second. I'm not sure this is as definite as you think it is. I've run some of my own tests and I can easily spike my apm by holding down a single build key. Spamming click orders can further increase that. Therefo...

Re: RAGL Season 5 Post Season Discussion

I agree with Smitty that macros are advantageous and go against the spirit of the competitive scene, however I also agree with WhoCares that any attempt to outright ban macro use would result in witch hunts and spiral out of control. If Smitty, Whocares, or whoever can come up with a definite way to...

Re: RAGL Season 5 Post Season Discussion

netnazgul already replied and addressed many of the same points but I'll leave mine up just in case they help expound further details. 1. Separate website is inconvenient. 2. Poor advertising. I think both of these are the same. The Website was created when it became clear the old forums were going ...

I wanted to share some thoughts on this outside of the game. LT: Cost 850, +HP, +Vision, +Heavy Damage, -Light Damage I'm mostly okay with this though I do have my reservations about it. MT: Cost 1000, +HP, +Damage Same as above. Arty: Cost 900, +Health, +Accuracy, +Turn Rate, -Reload Speed, -Projec...
