This is all well and good but now what ... Allies would have to tech rush all the way to tier 3 to replace only portions of the hinds power. These specific problems only exist if you were to insist on moving the Hind without making any other changes to compensate. That is silly, and nobody would se...

Personally, I dont see this as a strong argument. Just because something has been wrong for a long time doesn't mean it should stay that way. Unfortunately, you could then apply this too many things. For example fog of war. Wasn't in the original therefore its wrong let's bin it. Multi-tab producti...

You're trolling right?

Hinds are woven so hard into allies play removing them is basically impossible without upsetting the entire balance of the factions. Each faction has a unit that can carefully counter another with minor mixes. The only solution I can see is the Iroquois gunship thing though id prefers it to be a Cob...

This is a cultural issue, not a balance one. If the community was willing to compromise on undoing some of these old ideas then I would be more willing to compromise on new ones. I don't entirely understand this point. Are you saying because players are reluctant to remove things that have become a...

I feel there is a gross misunderstanding of the power and the limitations of the rocket soldier and I would like to address it before a bandwagon starts. Firstly the rocket soldier is not OP. It is certainly good at its job but it is not OP. A rocket soldier is a unit for dealing with buildings, bas...

How about we just kill navy. It's a nightmare to do work with. It's always going to be wasted assets unless you purposefully force people to go through it by making it a full-on navy map. It was a feature brought into the original Red Alert to spice up the campaign now let's be rid of it.

When I've watched good players use naval (and not random tom and jokinha fighting on isles of war or whatever its called at 7 apm) it's usually a complete stalemate were players fire their shot then dodge the enemy shot but then the enemy dodges their shot and its an endless loop. From my own experi...

Crazy changes: - reducing price of Longbows from 2000$ to 1650$ - give Migs AA capability Not related to the navy bit because who cares about navy heh *looks over shoulder to find admiral mo with a fire axe* The first point I completely agree with. I actually had a convo with Lorrydriver recently o...

Isn't that a bit rough to Omnom? Like he stuck around all season, played 22+ games and now he gets totally booted with no reward for not attending one last match?? Idk, but do you have any proof that both (or one of them) really attempted to play the playoff? (Like an Email). "We felt like Happy wa...

Sure it may depend on the individual. But that still means that telling people to stick to 1v1 games is a questionable solution. 1v1 players are so far the least toxic. The best players. All of them are keen to teach anyone and tbh getting basic 1v1 skill means you can win 90% of teamgames straight...
