Re: Send me your replays and I'll cast them!

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... BhizWMSOsfA This has been a tricky one to cast: Both players...

Re: Send me your replays and I'll cast them!

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...

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

... 2. Total number of delays requested is used as a secondary tiebreaker for tied spots: i.e. if players finished with the same points and had their match as 1-1, the player who delayed less matches throughout the season is placed first. ... Not a big fan of this, it just punishes players in unfav...

Re: Send me your replays and I'll cast them!

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. https://drive.google....

Re: Send me your replays and I'll cast them!

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!

Re: FiveAces' Livestreaming Announcement Thread

Time for some more playtesting! Following up on last week's stream, it has become apparent that the scope of balance changes in RA will be bigger than initially expected. Be prepared as we are launching our second playtest assault tonight, 6pm UTC! Hoping to see as many veteran players as possible i...

Re: Playtest-20190106 - Discussion

Changes to actors frozen under fog ...have actually no relation to what you describe as there were changes to frozen actors (buildings), whereas moving units disappearing into FoW are still to be fixed. Though that might take some tweaks around still as it's a long-standing can of bugs. Maybe I sho...

Re: Send me your replays and I'll cast them!

The new playtest is out! Before we turn our eyes towards the Red Alert changes that might shake the core principles of RA gameplay up by quite a bit, here's an SP cast that I really wanted to highlight: GDAyke3Fw7w Kwendy versus Orb, showcasing two completely different GDI playstyles and once more p...

Re: Playtest-20190106 - Discussion

Changing ctrl-fire to target the cell might make it more difficult to kill enemy spies though. Especially if you spot them early and they have ample opportunity to move around after you targeted them. Edit: on the stealth-traits: aren't regular stealth and spy stealth sort of the same thing? (In th...

Re: Playtest-20190106 - Discussion

Alright, time for a playtest review from my side! After playing the latest version for a good five hours on stream, here's my impression on the most impactful changes: -I'm really a big fan of retaining the hijacker's identity. In his current iteration, he seems to be a great addition to the Soviet ...

Re: Playtest-20190106 - Discussion

Great changes across the board! I'm especially happy about the hijacker retaining its identity instead of being transformed into an apprentice spy. I just tried the mission Allies 7, and the game crashed hard on me. Seems like a certain lua function got called a couple hundred times within a second,...

Happy new year everyone! Having upped my weekly schedule to one cast plus one stream highlight, the first cast of 2019 is a great predicator of things to come. 35 minutes of non-stop mutant versus mutant action, using the entire tech tree of the faction! qhSV7lZvWTI Next stream is scheduled for Tues...
