    Whilst I agree it is a huge slap in the face for fans who grew up with the series, it could on the flip side, draw interest for the younger generations. This could lead to them looking for older games, this could peak a lot of interest for a potential revival of the main games. But no, EA still feel the need to tell us why the next FIFA game is better than the last and occasionally present a short-lived C&C spin-off that'll shortly die off soon after when they absorb the message that it doesn't sit well with the fans. That being said I still maintain my current description of this insulting piece of a product, gross. If this is indeed the series' future, then I'd rather they just let it rest in peace. Guess mobile content just isn't really my thing.

    Gross.

    Aside from the Kirov moving at that funky speed... I actually kinda like this. Especially the art direction, it does look beautiful.

    Reborn... Reborn this year? Colour me excited. I do generally hope there will be more media updates this year, if possible.

    Opening the launcher doesn't download the update, so I reinstalled. It applies it, then reverts back to the previous version. But I get no errors regardless. Running Windows 10 if that helps?

    I didn't think they'd actually do it but it was a nice surprise certainly. If they are following the timelines correctly, it's likely they may do the 19th century but they are pushing it. The AoE2 and AoE3 remasters are also certainly a surprise but I don't know if I'll buy AoE2 again just for prettier graphics I wonder if this means that AoE2HD is NOT receiving another expansion at all? The DLC entry over at Steamdb continues to be a mystery.

    Personally, I'd prefer the repair tools in Reborn, they just looked and functioned better, in my opinion. Can't remember if it was the same for Renegade but yeah... I just kinda dislike the dial-up thing. It was also neat at how engineer tools repaired somewhat better but I suppose that was warranted considering the lack of a wrench.

    Just throwing this out here but... I think HostileWaters would be a great candidate for Yaks. The map is large enough (would be cool to see Yaks engaging the Allied navy), the Hind was sparingly used there, and the Chinook saw next to no use... I think it could be a real possibility, perhaps?

    And due to the two ore silos, that hardly matters. I remember a game where the Allied OT was being constantly wrecked and everyone could still afford hordes of longbows. It's less a question of size and more how far the ore fields are from base (but again, two ore silos makes that less relevant). Ridge War's Allied ore field is within kissing distance of the refinery, that doesn't make it a tiny map. With the Allies, it's not so much of a problem, they are able to be rather conservative with their assets, which is quite difficult for the Soviets. Soviets naturally have more expensive assets and can lose them relatively quick. Which brings upon a point I wanted to add; it's still incredibly difficult to root out the camp cannon strategy, no matter what I do, it's just really frustrating that I cannot cost-effectively remove that threat and even if me or my team does... they can just repair it back to full health in a matter of seconds. The nerf on cash-on-damage really hurts. particularly as the Soviets, at least on that map, relied a lot on it. It's not hard to C4 the outlying SAMs and even C4 the silos and Helipad. The Soviet base design in general is something I'm not too keen on. I did vote in that poll to keep the map but this has changed my opinion somewhat, mainly because it is just frustrating and it becomes a bit boring. I also agree with a secondary route, I voiced my opinion on this before but got shut down on that.

    I personally think the Medic is fine, as per my vote. But that doesn't necessarily mean I disagree on some of the issues raised regarding him. I will say though, do remember that Medic groups often require a number of people to pull off and yes whilst it makes defending a bit hard, it does often leave their base vulnerable to attack. I think it more depends on certain maps (which has been documented, strong on a few, often useless on others) and player counts. I don't mind the potential changes, especially the flamer being the first counter to them. One thing I want to ask though, I know that Shock Troopers aren't really meant to counter infantry but I noticed that shocks now deal tiny damage (even when landing a direct hit) and will out heal the damage being done. Is that supposed to happen? In other words, the self-healing seems to override direct damage of time from the Shock Trooper.

    Was a bit lacklustre for me too, most games I'm interested in did not make an appearance (Dynasty Warriors 9, Red Dead Redemption 2). Though CoDWW2 looks pretty good and a surprise announcement of Age of Empires: Definitive Edition has me interested. It's just too bad that they had to be Microsoft and (so far) release it on Windows 10 and Windows Store. Blargh.

    Well to be fair, it is situational and hard to pull off, the only thing I can recommend is to hop on the server when its empty and bring someone along for testing? I'm not very good at using video software otherwise I'd try and capture it but as I say, it only happens in rare circumstances but it does happen. I first noticed it on PacificThreat when it had a Flame Tower during several matches, whether that helps or not? This game has a habit of not reproducing stuff when trying it out in LAN mode, for some reason.

    Even with the reduction of income stolen from a Silo, they do tend to hit the Soviets very hard, especially on Metro. But that being said, can't do much without making the Thief useless. Though one thing that does need fixingfor obvious reasons is to make it so the corpse of a Thief not able to steal... haha.

    You know, back in RA1 (that was my first C&C game) I always thought it was some fancier radar dome due to the similarities it had shown. I know it's unlikely to happen and probably shouldn't but a recent change locking Volkov/Tanya at the radar dome reminded me of something. Since it's very unlikely that both the Allied and Soviet tech centres are to be implemented in the way as we know it, I thought, why not the shared technology centre act as both the radar dome AND the prerequisite for Tanya and Volkov? Like I say, don't take that too seriously, was just a random thought I had. Anyway this would be neat if the technology centre were to make an appearance, like Seamist but with the Soviets defending it or something.

    With the Prime Minister authorising Operation Temperer to be deployed, there are about 5000 British Army soldiers patrolling the streets, much of them in Manchester and London, such as Westminster, Buckingham Palace, etc. I haven't seen any soldiers but in my city (Norwich) the armed police have been deployed, which is rare in of itself considering British police do NOT carry firearms by default, that is handled by a separate unit. Though that being said there's already controversy of soldiers being deployed because it's a throwback to The Troubles in Northern Ireland due to the army patrolling those streets and it... ended rather badly. But yeah, the sad part is, the security services knew about the bloke and did nothing about it, according to the Home Secretary.
