A beginners' guide to Tiberium Wars and Kane's Wrath multiplayer

Recommended Posts

Since I like to have everything in one place, I've decided to create a beginners' guide for Tiberium Wars and Kane's Wrath multiplayer, especially now since some things have changed with the account system and C&C:Online has taken GameSpy's role of operating the servers after the latter's closure.

UPDATED: 28 August 2014

1. DOWNLOADS
1.1. NECESSARY
Without these, you will not be able to play, as they are used by every player in the lobby. Users of Steam and Origin releases do not need these.

The Ultimate Collection fixed launchers - for users of TUC. This will prevent incompatibility with players who have disc/Steam versions and fix several issues TUC brought. Note that you need to disable Origin functionality for all TUC games before using this tool.

1.2. OPTIONAL

 

2. CREATING AN ACCOUNT AND LOGGING IN TO C&C:ONLINE


3. STATS AND REPLAYS
All your data is stored on a site called ShatABrick, including your game count, rank, average time spent etc. If you've played games with the BattleCast option enabled, you will also have replays available for download. It also displays distinct icons if a player is known to have common desyncs or disconnections. If you search for one of the usernames attached to your account (so-called "smurfs"), you will get to see all of them in the search form, but with individual stats one below the other.

4. COMMUNITY PATCHES FOR KANE'S WRATH
4.1. PATCH 1.02+
Although the official version is 1.02, many players, including the experts, decide to play the community-made version 1.02+, created by CrazyGDIFan123`. This is a patch aimed to remove as many bugs and glitches as possible, like faulty Awakened EMP blasts or Rocket/Heavy Harvesters' unexplained lower harvesting rate. The patch is made to have as little impact to the balance as possible. You can switch between 1.02 and 1.02+ at any time! It also comes with two great mappacks, while the maps themselves can be played on the official version 1.02 and will retain their new features without touching the base game. Note that they cannot be transferred online due to the fact that they are compiled in a .BIG file and must be installed manually.

Players with 1.02+ enabled are not compatible with players who do not have it.

4.1.1. PATCH 1.02+ MAPS BY PREDATORE

Predatore has made several quite original maps for patch 1.02+, which turned out to be a smash hit among the players and, after a long struggle, they've been placed on the ranked map list. You can download them for 1.02 here, while the instructions on their installation are here.

NOTE: Patch 1.02+ releases 6 and beyond already include Predatore's maps by default with all patch changes included.

4.2. PATCH 1.03
A much less frequent sight, patch 1.03 comes from the same creator as 1.02+ and includes all of its features, but this time, it touches the balancing issues. Whether you need this or not, you will decide for yourself, as some changes may look great, but others may not to some players, so read the full changelog before deciding. It also comes with its own mappacks and you can switch between 1.02 and 1.03 at any time.

Players with 1.03 enabled are not compatible with players who do not have it.

5. REPORTING
All reports of cheaters, disconnections, desyncers and other abusers are to be addressed in these subforums:

6. RESOLVING RANK ISSUES
If you are having issues in receiving points and/or getting a higher rank, report to these threads:
