Re: End of 2018 RA balance changes

Well, even better idea for MGGs to consider (as pointed out by one of Discord members) is to get a piece of code from SoScared and make MGGs ability a toggle.

Re: End of 2018 RA balance changes

It's not heresy rather than another attempt to fix MGG (usual GG as well btw) behaviour in place to account for Fog of War, because it is a bit silly to have Explored Map option and Fog of war in the game, but Gap generators still exhibiting shroud instead, making it obvious for opponents that there...

Re: End of 2018 RA balance changes

Another pack of suggestions for allies: - Mobile Gap Generator generating fog instead of shroud, thus not explicitly revealing itself on the map when explored map is enabled; maybe considering adding yet another cell of enemy units vision reduction, at least for far-seeing units; - a slight buff to ...

Re: End of 2018 RA balance changes

Ok, some feedback regarding the new game state as well as the overall stuff: - Mammonth tanks are much more potent now, to the point that they might be quite hard to stop by Allies even; we thought that reducing their rockets weapon range at least by 1 cell is to be done - consider buffing Migs by d...

Re: Red Alert Global League: Season 7 - Rulebook

New stuff TL;DR:
- Recruits might be back if there are tons of new signups
- If Minions 1st is tied on points, all tiebreakers are skipped in favour of Best-of-3 rematch
- Rounds are not listed, so replay naming is a bit different (easier)
- Player is able to ban up to 1 map from his opponent's pick

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

It is a double-edged sword - on the one side it does punish people for having busier RL schedule and also discourages fairplay in helping out opponents from receiving strikes for a failed contact (though the latter is debatable in itself). On the other side, it is only a minor tiebreaker that won't ...

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

Some additions for S07 that are considered: 1. Each player can ban up to 1 map from his opponent's pick. So before player A considers picking maps, player B may exclude one map he dislikes from the pool; same for the 2nd game. This is at the discretion of players, player can choose not to ban any ma...

Re: feature request: non-visual batch-operated balancing-test.

Yeah, I once asked about something like this when diving through infinite layers of YAML trait inheritance. Though I suspect such a GUI won't be a trivial one to make, but doable, just takes quite a huge amount of time.

exactly. So checking for license won't help, cause it only covers PLAYING the game, not modifying/altering its contents.

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

I think a map pool should endeavor to have a list of categories filled ...and I agree with this notion. The latest map pool was in a way an attempt to follow with this point. One potential problem I see with map pick for the next season is that there was more or less a single active mapmaker (N/a) ...

Re: feature request: non-visual batch-operated balancing-test.

the game is not balanced. with every team having the same AI setting, the Allies usually win, the Soviets usually lose. this also might be (and definitely is) the problem with poor AI and how it uses units, not with the game balance. Such testing doesn't really give you any useful info on balancing...
