    Wow, illmatic2609, what game is that?


    The only screenshots I have on this computer are from World of Warcraft (note that I quit a year ago so they're a little old now).
    Here's a few (click to enlarge):

    Here are some new ones from today. I decided to go heavy with NOD and I made 10 Avatars, each costing 2200. Then I made 10 Stealth Tanks and 10 Flame Tanks and upgraded my Avatars using those 20 tanks and the cost came out to 49,000.

    Just using those 10 Avatars, and some Venoms and Attack Bikes for anti air/infantry support I beat all 3 enemies.

    if you knew how to play strategically, you'd never mass mammoths/avatars like that

    in online games, if you're nod, just early scorpion rush them after de-stabilizing their economy with some stealth gliders , gdi, use the medium tank mass rush them, if your scirn, beef up your def and wait for late game as thats when they're most powerful

    using mammy rush = too late game and any scirn would wipe them out easy by using the teleport and the mothership trick

    or just PAC and devastator (with ions storm activated for extra def for PAC and devastators combo) with annihilators teled at the back

    From a screenshot you can say that I don't play strategically?

    Actually, I know how to play strategically...especially with Nod. I utilize all their powers to destroy my enemies. My favorite methods are using stealth and hit and run tactics, but I also know how to steamroll. I know all about rushing, using Shadow Teams....(not Stealth Gliders?...lol)...I won't go into detail about all the tactics I use...

    The game in which I took the screenshot of the Mammoth Tanks was after a FFA 8 Player game, with only 2 humans. And I'm not a GDI player....I'm usually Nod so...I don't use their abilities as well as I do Nod's.

    Also, when I post screenshots....I post screenshots worthy of posting...ones that look awesome. Would you rather I post a screenshot of a couple of Buggies harassing a player's harvesters?

    Lastly, please don't quote and leave the pictures in IMG format. Either link to them instead or just say which one you are talking about.

    Weak, C&C RA2 was by far the best RTS game of all time. I haven't played it for years, but back when I did I was at the top. I stopped playing games before the release of C&C 3 so I'm not sure how well it goes up against RA2.

    Well, 95% of all CnC players say that RA2 is better than CnC3. I didn't enjoy RA2 much, but as much as I like Tiberium Wars....it is lacking in a lot of ways. A few of the most annoying things is that....the "Radar" doesn't give you a radar....instead your construction yard gives you your radar....which is truly retarded. I liked not starting out with a radar and having to make a structure to gain the ability. Another thing I really hate about the game is the fact that people think it makes them awesome to spam one unit and use it every game. I'm sure that was kind of thing is present in other RTS games, but Scorpion spam and things like that are irritating. Don't get me wrong....I can counter those lame tactics just fine...but it's hard finding someone actually worth fighting. To be perfectly, I enjoy fighting a good fight and losing rather than owning some "experienced" player who doesn't know what the word strategy means.

    The original C&C was great for its time. C&C3 is kinda cute, but still basically looks like a 1996 RTS. (It has that in common with Starcraft 2, imo)

    Funny how it seems only Relic is capable of making innovative RTS games these days.

    Unfortunately, I can't find my Dawn of War screenshots, so here are a few from Medieval 2: Total War:
    Aztecs look funny
    That's my general... Woo!
    My crusade has reached Jerusalem. Gogo pilgrims and fanatics!
    Taking a few pot-shots at the few surviving attackers
    Halberds are cool
    Sucks to be the attacker...
    Sucks to be the defenders
    That's how we deal with attackers around here

    Finally someone who thinks the same way I do! I feel like I'm playing the same C&C I played 10 years ago only prettier. And when I look at SC2 its the same reaction.

    To OP, nice pic and thread.

    To everyone else making the analogy between C&C3 and the earlier ones with Starcraft and SC2, don't be so hasty. So you've seen some screenshots of SC2... in pre-alpha stage. Did you read the in-depth reports of those who played it at Blizzcon? It make just look like a "prettier" version of Starcraft, but the gameplay is going to change because they are overhauling over half of the units and adding at least several to every race, plus they way they are doing the story (cinematics) is going to be drastically different. You can say that Blizzard makes big changes with each successive RTS, unlike the C&C franchise which is variations of the same game. Don't get me wrong, I love the C&C series and I agree that RA2 was the best one.

    Well, the main problem with C&C3 and C&C Generals....was the fact that Westwood no longer exists and EA took over....and made it crap tbh (compared to what Westwood brought to the table)

    I think if Westwood was still around, C&C3 would have been a much better game and received a lot more support.
