Tomorrow July 2nd at 10:00 AM GMT it is finally time to start the first ever Hecthor Doomhammer OpenRA Red Alert 1vs1 Tournament

After months of preparation, planning and organizing, I will be joined by FiveAces, SoScared and Jazz as co-commentators as we stream the entire event on my Channel on twitch and the first day of the tournament will consist of 5 match ups, 2 of which are Quarter Finals, so it's going to be a long stream!

We will be resent in the chat early on, and probably go live a little earlier.

At the end of this countdown I hope that we can start the first match: Kwendy vs Anjew and I hope to see you all then!

With Day 1 of my OpenRA Red Alert Tournament being such a huge success, I am excited for tomorrow, July 3rd, for Day 2.

We will be starting the same time as today, at 10:00 AM GMT which is at the end of this countdown

We've got a total of 6 match ups ready for tomorrow: The last 4 Matches of Round 1 and the last 2 matches of the Quarter Finals, so this will be another long stream, hopefully going as smooth as today.

As always, the place where you can watch the tournament is [/url=]my channel on Twitch[/url] and I will once again be joined by FiveAces, SoScaredfor casting and Jazz_KCS for the technical support.

Hope to see you all then!

Hey every one,

After seeing how smooth the first weekend of the tournament went in terms of transitions from 1 match up into the next, and seeing how my original plan was to have the Semifinals on Saturday and the Bronze Match and Finals on Sunday, I’m fairly certain we would end up with 2 very short streams this upcoming weekend.

So after talking with Anjew (since he’s the only one NOT from Europe) I will be changing the schedule for the remainder of this tournament:

We’re finishing it on Saturday July 9th. Moving the Bronze Match and Finals to the Saturday as well. So we can all take the Sunday off.

We’ll be starting at 10:00 AM GMT, just like the other days with the Anjew vs GateKeeper match for the Semi Finals, then the OmegaBolt vs Kyrylo Semifinals. Followed by the Bronze Match and finally the Finals.

In terms of the Bronze Match and Finals, I do want to clarify something:

Despite the scoring for the Bronze Match / Finals will be a Best of 5 / first to a score of 3, ALL 5 MATCHES will be played, as a bit of Fan Service

The order of the countries selected for the Bronze Match / Finals is:

France - Ukraine - England - Russia - Germany

Hope to see you then!

Hecthor Doomhammer

      An interesting playtest (note: playtest builds are experimental and are not considered stable) version of OpenRA has been released yesterday. All of the current mods are now accessed separately instead of using a central launcher, a C&C3-styled interface for advanced movement options like attack move and waypoints has been implemented, new building physics have been added, 9 more Dune 2000 campaign missions have been converted, LAN games are now automatically discovered in the Multiplayer browser, and many more changes have been made.

      This week in our Throwback Thursday feature, we look at the evolution of the first Tesla Tank in the Red Alert universe. It first appeared in the Counterstrike mission "Legacy of Tesla" with the appearance of a Mobile Radar Jammer, as a campaign-only unit. In development builds of The Aftermath, it sported a similar chassis, but with a Tesla coil and a van de Graaff generator mounted on top of it. In its final appearance in the released version of The Aftermath, where it is available in skirmish and multiplayer as well, the Tesla coil is condensed and its profile is lower.

      Remember, you can click on the preview to see a larger and more detailed image. Don't forget to check out the Throwback Thursdays archives if you've missed a week. Check back again next Thursday for another Throwback. Send in your ideas for future instalments. We also encourage you to share this on social media using the hash tags #ThrowbackThursday, #CnCTBT and #CNCNZTBT.

      Tiberian Sun LIVE NOW on Twitch, follow me!

      We've fallen a bit behind on the news in the C&C community, so it's time to catch up.
      C&C Communications Center has relaunched on Sunday with a completely new look and a vast archive of data and images from Westwood's RTS titles currently spanning from the venerable Dune II to Tiberian Sun and Firestorm. Much of the material you can see there hasn't been seen publicly in many years, and some of it... ever! Over the past week, the Twisted Insurrection team introduced new tracks for the upcoming version of the mod: Radioactivity (including some lyrics from Kraftwerk's song of the same name), W.I.R.E.S., Tungsten Souls, and The Surveyors. The first three tracks were composed by Swirekster, while The Surveyors is by OmegaBolt. OpenRA was updated to stable version 20170527, which fixes a few graphical issues and adds the "Fast" game speed. The Generals 2 mod for Red Alert 3 is showing further progress with the new APA tank models and textures. Red Alert: A Path Beyond was patched to version, introducing lots of balance changes, map tweaks, touched-up graphics for the Mammoth Tank, new Strela-2 model for the Grenadier and more.
