@weeman: What you do in your spare time is your own business, but please refrain from posting your holiday pictures in a videogame thread. Thank you.

You have a good point, but I think the real reason behind why Sovs are perceived as weaker is their high demand on micromanagement. I play both factions, and currently have a much higher winrate as Sovs. Allies are easier to play: defend your Arties and let them wreck everything with autofire - espe...

Hey SoScared, good to see you're still kicking :) Thanks for the feedback guys, I'll do this on a regular basis from now on with 1-2 videos a week (working as a teacher and have a lot of travel plans over the summer holidays, but I'll just try to preproduce for when I'm not in town). I liked the gam...

I think their damage is fine, seeing as they are supposed to be a lategame high-performance unit. The real problem with them is their resilience to damage. If anything, I'd give them a health nerf, because currently, only Tanya or mass hinds can deal with them. We should shift their role towards sec...

Reach, absolutely, I'd be happy to cast it! Sinf and you are both experienced players, so it should be a great game. Murto, I don't have any content on my channel as of yet. I'll post the link once I get my first replay uploaded (which should happen somewhere in the range from Sunday to Wednesday)!

Alright, I'm back from my hike and tackled your new challenges. Unfortunately, the AI is George W. Bush levels of stupid, so I feel like adding more bots doesn't add to the challenge. Maybe turn it into a time challenge, trying to find out who can beat them the fastest? My current times are: Allies ...

Hey hey people! 8) Seeing as SoScared has apparently vanished without a trace, I'm going to try filling the void he left in the community by starting to cast replays and uploading them to youtube. This is where you - yes, I am looking at you, dear reader (and dare I say you look dashing right now in...

Fair enough!
Seeing as FFA just ain't my cup of tea, I'll volunteer as a caster instead. Do you have an approximate time horizon set as of yet?

While your idea sounds good on paper , I feel like this system would be both too complex for Ripley to maintain and too easy to cheat (e.g. farming easier opponents). Also, it would not necessarily reward the best players but rather those who play frequently to grind ladder points. With that said , ...

So I just figured out what's going on: If you check the thread right after this one, you'll find someone wondering about a modified "Pressure " map with a custom ruleset. I skimmed through them and basically, they allow for a bunch of really stupid cheats. Spawning 50 mammooths, invisible flamethrow...

Haha yea, that was a good game. Chris is definitely the strongest opponent I've faced so far. The game was still hard to call, my biggest assets were the spies in his base 8) I guess you're talking about Ripley's upcoming tourney? Yea, let's organize a team once Ripley spills the beans about timefra...

Really nice idea! Unfortunately, the AI is inherently flawed and incredibly easy to overcome. Here's the link to my replays, I completed your challenge both versus 6 Turte AIs and 6 Rush AIs. On an interesting sidenote, the game is significantly harder to win both as and versus Allies. Due to the "z...

I tried Trench, quite liked it because disincentivises basecrawling and promotes vehicle-based gameplay!
Anything that goes against the meta is great in my book :)

Thank you for sharing, raymundo! Truth be told, I was happy about the win, but I wanted to showcase it mostly because you were one of the most experienced players trying out the map so far :) I had a match versus V-Christian on the map yesterday that lasted for 70 minutes and only ended because the ...
