OpenRA C&C Red Alert 1 Survival Horror Map Purgatory

Post by Blake00 » Sat Jun 15, 2019 7:31 am

Anyone played this map before and got any tips? Using Red Alert 1 buildings and units you have to survive an ONSLAUGHT on monsters from Doom, Aliens, War of the World and C&C itself. It's impossible with 1 player as your AI allies are too stupid to survive so you need 3 buddies. But even then it's so friggin hard. We could beat the map on easy mode but on easy mode you don't get the cool alien crash landing and war of the worlds walkers. Reducing the spawn eggs down to one didn't seem to help either haha.

It's been a while since I've played that one. If memory serves, I think the key was something like, rushing the eggs with infantry asap, before the monsters get too tough to fend off. :?
LOL! Check out my signature! Neat eh?

Materianer you are an evil person haha.. you know we're just going to have to try your new version now and die horribly some more lol!!!

Have you got any tips for us? If you watched my video above you probably saw how much we struggled lol.

Also in an older video I found some other people filmed there was an anthill thingo in the center of the map.. what happened to that? It also seemed MUCH easier for them and it doesn't seem like they're playing any better than us haha.

Yes defend your base with evrey single unit, dont attack the eggs if you just think its a good time now for that.
The counterattack from monsters is often devastating, you must know they are demons and know if you are weak.
You need to plan this a bit with your team.
Every player should take 2 oilderricks and take care that he doesnt run out of money at start, get 5-6 oretrucks and tech as fast as you can.
I think the best buildorder is barrack, ref, war fac+ 3 oretrucks ( now its a risky phase to run outta money if you builded too much infantry and defenses before ), ref, radar, arty/V2 ( surround them in a circle around the cliffs ), tech, migs and longbows are good to destroy the eggs also you can try to chrono and ic in the mid at best of course with madtanks ( take care with ic it can create a big angry monsterball ), also i think tanya can place c4 at the eggs so try to ic an apc and get into mid can be an option ( good luck for this ).
You can also try to rush some eggs at start with apc/flamers or just infantry, that works especially if the difficulty is set on easy.
Further i would say train some rounds with your team and one day you will maybe succeed :lol:

Yes the problem is there are of course easier versions, i just took the newest one of blunts 16 revisions.
I had some matches on this too and we won one of them on medium but the alien end comes only on hard.
Maybe you can also rush them on hard but the aliens will not be beaten with some infantry then.
I failed with 3 really good oraplayers on medium with no rush, its just getting too hard after a while.
Mabe i try to rebalnce this after 2 projects i'm working on atm
I'm currently adding a new system to set the income of enemyunits in my defense maps.

Its 2on2 each team face an enemy and can either just destroy the base or survive longer.

I think it would be not so hard if i wanted to get such an %enemyunit dropdown into the purgatory map, but not sure jet.
