How Many OpenRA Matches/Games Do You Play Weekly?

Hi OpenRA Community! As I watched the replay of FiveAces pummeling me during last year's tournament, it occurred to me that I probably don't half as much as stronger players, like FiveAces or Barf, do. So... here's a poll. Me? I often play one match after finishing up work... I suppose that makes me...

I'm confident to say that at least 30% of teams games are won in the first 5 minutes by deploying your MCV inside the enemy base. I've noticed a correlation between players who randomly quit/abort mid-game and players who launch an unsuccessful blitz within the 3 to 5 minutes of a game. Have other ...

- If there was lightning, clustering shock troopers together could have some interesting/comical side effects. - Spies could be more difficult to spot in heavy rain - arty fire could be blown around in heavy wind - Hurricanes would suck up troops and light vehicles - Accuracy could be diminished in ...

What is a 100% legal move that is frowned upon?

Question: What is a 100% legal move that is frowned upon?

Answer: After waiting 15 minutes to get a match together ---> somebody goes apeshit blitzkrieg within 3 minutes.

Differing Build Times????

I recently played a 1 vs. 1 and was beaten pretty badly. I went back to watch the replay because it seemed odd that the opposing play could build so quickly.... See below pictures that I snapped from my iPhone. Pay close attention to the Service Depot and Ore Truck build times. We each had 1 MCV and...

Players who rely on the early game light tank block have a terrible habit of leaving their ore trucks unprotected. Hijacking ore trucks from a troll never gets old :)

Cruisers Unable to Force Fire?

I noticed a odd quirk during a recent game.... After getting a few cruisers in place, I was unable to force fire on an enemy's base. I could clearly see the targets, but the cruisers would not fire. After my ally's fly spy plane over the enemy's base, I could briefly target and attack the base. Is t...

Lots of good ideas so far :) Who is willing to volunteer their expertise to help expand the OpenRA community? I know there's a lot of bright folks out there because I often get demolished in games. What if we started to assemble a spreadsheet/google doc that has areas of expertise for each contribut...

What about creating a "Player Bio" section that provides a legit and and/or humorous means to read up on your competition? There could be associated replays and such attached. The old Transformers toys has something like this and it was one of my favorite parts of getting a new toy back in the day. ...

Couple ideas to chew on... 1) A monthly OpenaRA newsletter that has progress on new releases, top replays, tips, and other content. There can be a "share with a friend" link etc. I used to do quite a bit of email marketing and would be happy to help with such a project. 2) Work the free angle with t...
