Time to set our sights back on Red Alert!
With the upcoming playtest balance changes, the current state of balance is about to get shook up a fair bit.
What better a timing than now to cast some playtest matches!
First off in this series will be Barf versus N/a:



Cheers!

Nice Replay - nice game. At beginning I thought there will be more use of hijackers :D

In this replay I thought that the allies are much more weak than the soviets... But could be just the gameplay style of the players

exciting to see the difference with defense-towers and their use against hijackers... Defend your refs and harvs :D

I really enjoyed your shoutcasts, good commentary and the post-battle analysis really helps any newbie players (just like me) to learn how to play better. Anyway, I have a replay for you to cast, a 3v3 match, with some back and forth paradrop/chronsphere action here and there.

Thanks! I usually don't cast larger teamgames, but maybe I'll give it a shot to see the chaos unfold.

This week's cast is a BO3 fresh off the playtest, showcasing some of the most interesting changes:



Cheers!

Ok, here is one game from the new pre-playtest. Mammonth Tank is the new meta, and you'll see a lot of them this game :)
Orb vs ZxGanon on Snakes & Ladders

You'll need this build installed to run it: https://github.com/pchote/OpenRA/releas ... t-20190127

Colleagues suggested I post this match :)
X is for experimental.

Awesome, thanks! I'll add it to the list.
In other news, the second playtest is out now! Not only are we going to dissect in in my upcoming Tuesday Stream Comeback, but I also got sent some amazing matches that are well deserving of a cast. The first in line, still played on Playtest #1, was ZxGanon versus Orb:



Tune in this Tuesday, 6pm, for the streaming comeback!

The year is 2019. Ever since the TDGL debacle, all TD players have vanished without a trace.

All the TD players?

No! A small dedicated group of people, scattered across the globe, are keeping this mod on life support.

This is their tale...



This has been a tricky one to cast: Both players went without names and I did not know that Master's alias is Black,
so this might not be Master versus Black after all, but rather Master versus Anjew.
No time for corrections though, since youtube removed video annotations...

Romanov is back, and he's as angry as ever!

Following the latest developments in the OpenRA modding scene, I got my hands on another RV replay by the courtesy of ZxGanon.

This was less of an experimental match and more of a 35-minute onslaught!



Some pretty good insights into the gameplay dynamics of this upcoming contender for most ambitious 3rd party mod.

Enjoy!

The playtest cycle is about to come to an end, but there's been a lot of activity behind the scenes, for developers and testers alike.
As a precursor to the Orb 2v2 Tournament, I got sent a replay that highlights Orb's latest balance proposals for Allies,
putting special emphasis on the Chronosphere and the ever-dreaded Artilleries.

Give it up for... Orb versus Bain!

Who'd have thought teamgames had huge untapped potential?
Over the course of Orb's 2v2 tournament we have seen a surge of amazing team tactics,
culminating in a fierce BO3 series between PointOne/Happy and ZxGanon/Punsho.

Watch the finals here:



Cheers!

RAGL season 7 is now in full effect!
Despite having had to delay all my matchups so far, I had to celebrate by casting one of the most interesting matchups in Masters:
WhoCares versus Punsho, two off-meta players throwing their most random builds at each other!



More in-depth RAGL analysis in my next Monday stream!

We need to go deeper!
After a brief glimpse into the mind of the elusive mad OpenRA scientist WhoCares last week, we are back with his RAGL matches against Orb. Will his build hold up against the vice champion or is this spark doomed to fizzle out? Find out here!
