And I like individual troop buying!

...Damn i love the plotline they make for the games

Although it took me a while to get used to not buying troops individualy it gets old but i do like using individual troops to go on sting operations and take down the enemy base

Hey but if you want one of the last good games for individual troops try out Command & Conquer Generals although the storyline sucks the game itself is really fun and similer to tiberum wars but you have to play Generals Zero Hour beacuse the first one compaired to Zero Hour is nothing

I only liked generals for the superweapons.
The game itself was all based on stereotypes and I felt it just wasn't command and conquer.

Superweapons kind of ruined it beacuse you could get as many as you wanted so i would just get like 10 Scud storms and take down an entire enemy base without even trying

Man, I remember that game. Took hours out of my life. I realy loved how they brought new life to renegade, it gave me a reason to still have it around.

I wonder why I don't still play it... Oh yeah, fucking demo truck whores.

Does anybody else really miss Tech Levels? I liked playing a game with no planes or super weapons. I also miss the practical weapons (mostly) in the older 2D non-iso games. But the new ones have the benefits of better controls, still I prefer the first few. I even like the old graphics better.

I liked every C&C game I ever played, but for some odd reason, this tactic works in ALL of them:
Build some more Mammoth Tanks! Woo!


Sure, we all share one thing. We will all die sooner or later. Thank god.

Lol, tech level one. I agree about the graphics too. They rocked. Especially when put in 1024x768.

Tech level one pissed me off, you couldn't do anything!
And now if you do build a superweapon online, chances are you're gonna get some guy really pissed and they will annihilate you and use your head as a trophy.

I love command and conquer, I was a big fan of Red Alert when I was a little one, maybe when I was 7 years old I started to become a "Pro" I used to think my battle plan before I went to destroy the enemy base, usually...I did this...

1) Build lots of refineries, maybe 2 and start collecting the multi-colored minerals
2) Build troops and just get them in a perimeter around my base to prevent attacks
3) Build power stations, then I would pull back the troops and start building defensive turrets around my base

4) Send the troops to my enemies base to distract them, usually, the battle would last 5 mins, enough for me to...

STAGE TWO: Launching an attack

1) Build troops, tanks
2) Have them scout out areas for my secondary bases, I usually have 5 on a map at one time... :D
3) Begin to mass build troops from those bases and send all out raids to the enemy.

Yes...I could end a match in 30 minutes, shame I lost my red alert CD :|

My strategy goes as follows:
1. Build a crane.
2. Assign the crane to an ore refinery and the original base to a barracks.
2. Assign another ore factory and build a war factory.
3. Build another crane, an MCV, 2 harvesters, and an ore factory.
4. Make myself invisable (Disrupter towers, Nod only.
5. Build tons of venoms or orcas or whatever scrin use.
6. More ore factories, special structures, and MCV's.
7. Mass produce EVERY BUILDING!
8. Capture tiberium spikes (if I haven't already.)
9. If not on a massive scale multiplayer match build superweapon.
10. Invade a weak enemy and capture base (or destroy and send MCV there.)
11. Destroy the world.

Usually my strategy is counter stratigafied by the "OMG RUSH LOL" strategy which I usually defend myself against pretty good, unless the nukes start getting launched.
