Greater range against choppers on occasion and halfway decent players usually do use SEAD so it's safe to just have them in your deck and deploy them everywhere as apposed to selectively watching your radar AA all the time and losing them/ missing chances to shoot anything down when you're not looking.

I used to play WG:ALB.

I tried play the campaign, but the AI was bullshit. It just spams infinite units.

I've seen some competitive bideos on GoogleTube and no one uses them.

main differences: bullshit ai

amphib units good for dropping infantry across a river

In the pre-Red Dragon games they also knew where your command vehicles were exactly and would drop artillery on them with pin-point accuracy.

R.U.S.E. is like Wargame, you've got to play the right map and gamemode (hint: not 1945 mode) for it to really shine.

It seems more that Eugen is on it's way out because of poor management and the fact that they can't seem to be able to pay their employees minimal wage.

Lets meme that into reality. Maybe we will get source code for R.U.S.E. and finally add in the Pacific Campaign and Naval

3d5d72 No.28571


Mod tools would be killer. 40k, WWII, and C&C would all work beautifully. IIRC, mod tools are necessary just to make new maps since there's no actual map editor and I think they had an outside company make them.

Funny enough the game's population is realtively stable with about 200 active players which doesn't sound a lot but considering it was a bit of a cult classic when it came out and also can't be bought anymore that's not bad going. It has more players than most modern RTS games

I just looked this up.

It's actually true. Game is more active than a lot of modern RTS games.

5b0dd8 No.30202


Problem is they're all clustered around 1945 mode which is crap outside of 1v1s. You can get a game on Total War or 1942 (the best mode in the game) but it takes a while and then the game is over in minutes because most of the 3,000 hour+ veterans can't play non-1945 to save their lives.

Difference is R.U.S.E. 1945 is at least still occasionally fun.

Also R.U.S.E. is fun outside of MP which is a big failing of Wargame honestly. Wargame is only playable if you have players to play against.

Well I wouldn't say R.U.S.E.'s SP is great unless you focus on doing the optional objectives.

They market this game as "realistic" but all I see is a game of rock paper scissors, with different nationalities of rocks, papers and scissors. It has potential, but for three game they realized none of it.

bf8fcc No.39731


The game is like playing a tabletop wargame without any of the fun autism that goes into it so it does come across as a bit bland. Honestly the game needed some mechanics from R.U.S.E. even if it is only to bring in information warfare. Hell the game doesn't even have infantry with mortars.

dfeb53 No.40072


Well if it was historically accurate Burgers would be too drugged up to figure what the hell was going on, most of the continental Europe Nations stop for a very long lunch then go home on the weekends and most of the Warsaw Pact countries would somehow get lost crossing the Rhine. Scandinavian countries would be too busy trying to invite Russians into gay nightclubs.
