Throwback Thursday for 30th November

Throwback Thursday for 30th November

In this week’s Throwback Thursday, we feature easily the most-used unit that is specific to Kane’s Wrath – the Scrin Mechapede, a rather creatively designed customizable late-game unit. Although it starts with a head and a single secondary segment, this mechanized “vehicle” can be upgraded with up to 8 additional segments that can have different weapons that are effective against different enemy types. Its main weakness is the fact that it can not function without the head – destroy it and you take the entire unit down.

Check back again next Thursday for another Throwback. Send in your ideas for future instalments.

It’s time for another CNCNZ.com game night! The intent is to make a multiplayer event for our forum members and followers, one where we’d just have fun with a chosen game or mod, without worrying of getting destroyed from higher-skilled players if we didn’t want it so. So here’s our chance of chilling out and playing C&C together.

We will be playing Red Alert 2: Yuri’s Revenge via CnCNet on Friday, 1 December 2017 at 19:00 GMT. Information, rules, and links to guides to set up your game are in this thread. Be sure to prepare your game before the event!

Throwback Thursday for 23rd November

In this week’s Throwback Thursday, we remember a plot point in the Red Alert 2 Soviet campaign which has Yuri manipulating Premier Romanov to give him more power and launch more aggressive attacks against the Allies. While the promotional material for the game indicates that the Soviet invasion at the start of Red Alert 2 was a simple backstab by Romanov (who was an Allied puppet placed at the head of the USSR following the events of the original game), made as an act of revenge for the previous war, which caught the Allies completely by surprise. Although the Soviet campaign itself is non-canon, this might raise the question was the entire Soviet rebellion Yuri’s plot the whole time. Either way, this strained Romanov’s mind so much, alongside an assassination attempt made to frame Vladimir, that it eventually killed the Premier.

In today’s Throwback Thursday, we feature the unit with possibly the biggest drawback in a C&C game – General Townes’ Laser Tank from Generals: Zero Hour. This modification of the standard Crusader Tank was armed with a more powerful laser cannon, but not only did each Laser Tank drain 1 unit of power, they would all completely deactivate once the power of their owner’s base went down, much like Robot Tanks from Yuri’s Revenge. Considering this is Townes’ only front line vehicle apart from the ever-present Humvee, players seem to be discouraged from massing Laser Tanks. The unofficial 1.06 patch prevents them from shutting down in low power situations, but retains their power requirement.

The pick for this week’s installment of Music Monday is the Counterstrike/Sole Survivor remix of Twin Cannon. It is a less ambiental and noticably heavier version of the track that is quite popular among the fans of the original Red Alert. A new track will be posted next Monday.
