If the debate about APCs being stronger in numbers then it should be looked at by economy. As several games turn into a large pool of early game units with ease of early income. Changing a price on the APC is just a bandaide fix. Id argue this is the wrong way around. The APC is still strong on its...

Personally, I dont see this as a strong argument. Just because something has been wrong for a long time doesn't mean it should stay that way. Unfortunately, you could then apply this too many things. For example fog of war. Wasn't in the original therefore its wrong let's bin it.. This issue genera...

The only solution I can see is the Iroquois gunship thing though id prefers it to be a Cobra if we went down that route :D. Avalach has some good ideas to actually removing the hind as the name. This is the latest and possibly largest effort undertaken to rectify this situation. https://github.com/...

While I agree with you, the OpenRA FAQ has a bit of a different perspective to what you are saying?

Giving destroyers 3 sea mines that can't by refilled could be a fun idea too but that doesn't fix the current issues. :P Tbh the subs could do with the mines. Like people have said, subs are kind of useless against destroyers because of the easy to dodge torpedo. Adding mines to subs or a mining sh...

This is actually so good. Especially with iron curtain, like you mentioned. It effectively iron curtains the nuke truck on certain naval maps

Something that is often forgotten or not mentioned when I see players discussing naval is that a spy can obtain sonar pulse for the Allied player if the subpen is placed next to the shore.

Would have been a nice addition to Blackened's naval story :p

There's a credits page in the game under the extras part that lists a lot of the main people who have contributed to this project.

Kick/bans could also ban an account rather than an IP which can be easily switched. From what I've gathered accounts will never be required to play OpenRA, so potentially the account system will not 100% deal with this problem. The onus is on server operators to ban 'disruptive' players, as is the ...

people do this for fun, and I'm not sure everyone will enjoy jumping into 1v1 games with probably much more experienced players. Fun is subjective. While some might not find it fun to be beaten by better players, others players might not find it fun to be bad at the game they are putting hours into.

Global Chat GONE :( :(((((((((((((((( Agreed. Ranked non fighting units is rather funny part of the game. Always brings a laugh in team games. At least they can still pick up crates. I am curious though. I presume crates are decide whats in them when a unit rolls over them not when they enter map. ...
