im sure most of the league-players dont care for gps specific Well, most league players won't care because 95% of the games never reach tier 3 tech, leave alone getting GPS up. This is a separate problem, but I do think GPS is very good. It is just that getting tech is worse than spamming infantry ...

Juicebox I think you have the wrong attitude about this. It's fine to be conservative, it's not OK to say you speak for a 'silent majority" without any proof, give no arguments whatsoever and vilify everyone who disagrees with you.

A quick thought, does everybody really want a much shorter early game? It cuts away a part of the match that some people might enjoy; that calmer phase when you scout, take oil derricks, plan your base, get your economy rolling, make small-scale tactical attacks and generally try to read your oppon...

For all the haters that can't read my typography I created this: http://imgur.com/M0Gsqnw OpenRA - EyE? ElitE? EnginE? :D See, it's not so hard! I'm not offended if you don't like it. I'm well aware that design isn't something you just pull out of a hat, it takes quite a bit of skill and effort to ...

There's so many icons with crates out there and personally crates don't make me think about real time strategy games in general. This I can only agree with. Who wants a mundane logo, if you can have a tank? It is clearly a game tank, it is simple, you can recognize it, and the double barrel is typi...

Ehh I don't really like the Klaas' typography. If I didn't know the name of this thing, I wouldn't be able to know it says OpenRA. Cool font but not at it's best here in my opinion. I don't think you need to be able to read a logo straight away. For example the CNN logo or the General Electric Logo...

I actually like the tank. It looks slick, it is clearly a game, the double barrel reminds me of Dune2/CnC games but is not linked to a single game in particular. Anyway, I also tried to make a logo, going for the corporate look: http://imgur.com/PDQtwYn There are several versions, with and without t...

XP support was dropped in the last release, so 20160508 should work. I guess it's good to test it before the party starts.

Honestly speaking, this whole community so far thanked my efforts with midfingers (if I get an actual response) Really? I think there are some really nice people in this community. Saying the community as a whole doesn't appreciate the efforts of devs is just not true, and can ruin the atmosphere a...

RA - Barren Land - 1:32 I guess you finetuned the fastest strategy now, I can't think of a faster way. I tried not building barracks before, and using the engy from the second conyard, but capturing a building is slightly slower... =P Now do the same for Haos, to really test those multitasking skil...

RA-Haos Ridges 3:13
RA-Pressure 14:28

I'm sure Pressure can be done in sub 10 mins, like in TD, even without multiple build ques.

Tried a few more times to get it below 2 mins, but all the bots need to die at approx the same time which irequires multi-tasking
