Today, the 27th of October 2015 sees us reach the 18 year milestone. Yes, CNCNZ.com has been online, in one form or another, for 18 years covering Command & Conquer games and the community. If you like big numbers how about looking at it this way, 6,574 days, 157,776 hours, 9,466,560 minutes, 567,993,600 seconds or 939 weeks. Either way, it all adds up to 18 years and that's the only number that counts. While things have been somewhat slower in the past year or so with no official news from EA about the Command & Conquer franchise, my commitment remains strong to keep CNCNZ.com alive. Work has been done on the backend and behind the scenes aspects of the the whole site to ensure its future is stable is moving forward, plus we have invested in solid paid web-hosting earlier this year. So the plan is to reach the monumental milestone of 20 years, after that? Well that I can't answer. People still do visit our site on a daily basis and for that I'm very grateful. We are proud of the fact that many fans still come to us for the latest happenings in the Command & Conquer community, even if news has dropped off a bit in recent times.

CNCNZ.com, October 1997 to October 2015.... 18 years and still going strong!

It is amusing to think that this site is probably older than a large number of C&C fans.

Happy anniversary, CNCNZ.com! Great times were had in all these years, let's hope it'll stay that way.

I wish that to be a nice and round 50, and after that, we can debate ;)

 

People still do visit our site on a daily basis and for that I'm very grateful.

 

I think immense gratitude should go to you, Sonic, and the rest of the active staff for keeping this site online and for believing there's more to C&C and its community than awaiting new games.

It's great to see this website and forum still alive.

 

But Sonic, couldn't you have waited 2 more years for a 20th anniversary instead? :P

There's an anniversary announcement every year, why would he cancel it for two years? There will be another one next year, and the 20th one after that.

Congrats Sonic on lasting this long. I like the 20yr goal - it's a reasonable and meritorious one.

 

We couldn't have lasted this long, and we'd be unlikely to make it to 20years, without all the various staff members both retired and active. Thanks!

A special mention for Nmenth - who is our most active moderator atm - and who still takes his job very seriously - you don't want to mess with a nuclear dragon!

I don't normally reply in news topics but I'll make an exception this one and only time. You can find out how the site used to look by checking out the History page found here http://www.cncnz.com/site-info/history/, its somewhat out of date though. There are also more screenshots of the past designs here https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.10150873061922671.409637.87374627670&type=1&l=06089ec8e6.

Well, I suppose it has been an easier job the past few years, given the lack of games. So much for the second decade of C&C... lets see what the third holds. RA3 is 7 years old today as well.

 

Keep up the good work guys, not many C&C sites left these days.

      The link to our Discord server has unjustly only been in the announcement for our failed first Game Night (we'll organize a new one, don't fret!). So, to all those who are not aware, we have our own Discord server here: https://discord.gg/4PN3HEa
      There we can talk about anything related and unrelated to the C&C series, as well as organize and coordinate during game nights. There are also channels for modding and our usual news feed. We also have a few voice chat channels. Hop in and join us!

      While we aim to cover all things Command & Conquer, we often forget that they had two "cousin" series: Dune and The Battle for Middle-earth. In this new CNCNZ.com article, I look at each of the games in both series individually, first giving the basic information on them and core gameplay points, after which I give my subjective view on them. I've also shared links to their official and fan-made patches, as well as multiplayer servers where you can play them. Click here to see the article.

      I don't think this news needs any explanation.

      For quite a while, I've wanted to make a multiplayer event for forum members and followers of CNCNZ.com where we'd just chill and play some fun matches together without any competitive pressure unless agreed upon otherwise. And so, our first Game Night will take place on Saturday, 15 July, at 19:00 GMT, in Red Alert 2: Yuri's Revenge via CnCNet. Further information is available here. In other news, we have started our very own Discord server, which channels for both our regular news feed and discussions, and a channel intended for game nights, along with voice channels.

      I wanted to write something to have my final goodbye and officially sign off as the webmaster, founder and lead administrator of CNCNZ.com. So I decided to write an article addressing stuff such as the closure announcement, change of ownership and my final thoughts. It is short, to the point and hopefully it answers everyone's questions. You can read the entire article right here. And with that I'm done. As I wrote just under a month ago. It has been an honor and privilege to serve as webmaster of this site but now its time to step aside. 
      Long live Command & Conquer!
      Long live CNCNZ.com!
