Re: Two vs Two Team Tournament!

engineers consumed!! why??? Main purpose of the tournament is to test the new features in the playtest, with potential balance changes, in a competitive environment. I'm willing to give the new engineers a fair handshake and see how they do. With the cost reduction to 400, I think they might be an ...

Re: Two vs Two Team Tournament!

I forgot there's a new option for reusable engineers in the playtest.

Reusable engineers is turned OFF. That is, engineers are consumed upon capture.

Re: Two vs Two Team Tournament!

Tourney has been moved to the 24th (Sunday), as that seems to be a better day for most people. Same time (12pm EST).

Re: EMP MAD Tank (Opinions Needed!)

MAD tank can be IC'd like normal. If you mean the defenses, they'll still be disabled, but won't take damage. Disable lasts about ~10 seconds. Once I get some test games done to demonstrate it's not OP, I plan to increase the HP a bit. I like this direction more since I want there to be some counter...

EMP MAD Tank (Opinions Needed!)

https://i.imgur.com/IsQxrMx.png So I was asked a little while back by N/a to whip up something to buff the MAD Tank. Rather than simply buffing its damage or HP, I thought I could make the unit more interesting by giving it an EMP effect. This way, it could function as a utility unit to assist in b...

Re: End of 2018 RA balance changes

I don't think so, as dogs can now run with an attack command. Running dogs dodge rifle shots (no damage). While testing this I ran into a bug. I was trying to get my dog to do a running attack after eating someone. If you give the attack command while he's eating it's just a walk command (I guess be...

Re: End of 2018 RA balance changes

Had a discussion on Discord with Barf about what to do with the engineer. You can find it in #play-testing. We think a good place to start would be reducing the engineer cost to 400. Cap time reduction isn't desirable as it is already feasible to sneak engineers into a Barf base (RAGL Champion). Ref...

Re: Red Alert Global League: Season 6 - Post-Season Discussion

I'd like a map banning system next season, and not only because of the drama surrounding my matches. It'd also promote more map picking variety if opponents banned the map you always played on.

For example, at the start of a match each player gets to ban 1 map.

TD: Rush

https://i.imgur.com/XeyGYvn.jpg Welcome back, Commander. After the relatively successful Allies Overhaul mod I did ( Linky ), I figured I'd take a crack at TD as well. The intentions of this mod are little different, however. I wanted to change the base game play of TD to be more enjoyable. Too oft...

In short, the mod aims to make game play less punishing so we can see more interesting, longer games. The pace will be quicker. P...
