hmm not when i played, i took out 3 teams by myself with 3 flame tanks and the cloaking feild

Nod's specialty is raiding.
They come, destroy lots of stuff, and go, recharge, come back, finish it off.

Hadn't all the servers shut down after Westwood closed down?
Or is EA still keeping them up?

yeah maybe you just cant play them for shit, your not suposed to go head on like with GDI, your supposed to weaken them with stealth then move in with High Tier units.

I played Renegade for awhile on GameSpot but there seemed to be one guy there who had a monopoly on the servers. Naturally I was a good sniper so they accused me of cheating a lot and I was often spending my time appealing bans on his little forum.

The game is dead now, I don't think anybody really uses it but it was an awesome game. If you ask me, the demo was the best online play, the other levels sort of sucked.

C&C was awesome when Westwood still owned it. But I still love them. Got a trial code from Kane's Wrath when I bought it for Red Alert, should really register with it soon =P. Looking forward to it.

Area of influence or range of effect.
Units like the purifier give a inspirational boost to infantry around them.

Tiberium Sun would have to be the game out of the series with the most hours put in from me, most of which were online back in the days when it was active. Some of those mod maps with extreme amounts of money and base walls took forever. NOD with their stealth and artilleray had a clear advantage if they weren't stomped quickly.

I've been playing C&C since the first release though. Never eneded up buying the original Red Alert but I borrowed it from the video store that many times and played it at a mates house. I did however get RA: Retaliation which was pretty sweet. I also have all of the other titles, but not their expansions except for Firestorm.

Looking forward to RA3, the bears look like an addition awesome considering that Stalin experimented with a lot of that sort of stuff.

You have to run it as the administrator.
It's forcing the program to run, it's saying "I AM THE OWNER OF THIS COMPUTER, YOU WILL DO AS I COMMAND, NO MATTER WHAT MY COMPUTER IS!"

Or you can get the Ps1 port, I think there is somebody working on PSP port too.

i love the C&C games, red alert 3 looks kick ass :)

but i hated how EALA broke kane's wrath. the patch is awsome...untill the economy change of it came into play witch killed the game. harvesters = to easilly killed by anything with rockets. they better come out with 1 more patch to fix the costs of refineries and harvesters

but other then that red alert is the best universe in the seris. RA1 is my personal favorite and have a mod for renegade called A Path Beyond witch is a FPS take on RA1 (extreamly fun :D)

ive seen a trailer for ra3, n im not too sure about it. I used to play RA2 and yuris revenge all the time, but now I love the look of CnC3 and kanes wrath. Maybe im not used to the different look in graphics, but its not reali making me interested as it used to.

I liked YR a lot because there were new units,teams,selectable start points,more maps and a new race/team.. YURI! Renegade was addicting until I couldn't beat one of the levels. Generals: Zero Hour was good. The easiest way to win skirmish was to be China Infantry, get Black Lotus and hack everything from buildings, to buildings :D

You're the first person I have met (aside from me) that says Yuri's revenge was good.

The only thing i didnt like about Yuri's Revenge was the Yuri Clone voices. So i changed them back to the original RA2 yuri's.
I liked all of the C&C games, i still play C&C Tiberian Dawn. And i did like Renegade, except that i seemed to have a lot of trouble getting online.
I am willing to play anyone in any of them except for C&C 3as i lost that game
Oh, speaking of C&C 3, i am quite pissed that they never made the halo mod for C&C 3 on the PC.

You can never stop experamenting with the possiblities in Red Alert 2, there's always something new to try, and with that comes a whole new strategy!

Ever tried using psychic on a random pedestrian and exploring with him?
What about a mind controlling a school bus, filling it up with troops, and unloading it in the nearest building to the enemies base?
Or forcing your enemy to commit suicide by robbing all his money with a spy, and then killing all his ore trucks?
Or making a whole entire spy army, then moving it into your enemies base? You could even make a whole entire base with spies!
