the fuck was his problem
Judging by his looks, pronouncing "nuclear".

Blowing up half of his base with nuke mig missiles when intercepting enemy aircraft
None, nuke is pretty much balanced and infantry general can pull its weight in early/mid/late game as well but tanks sucked unless you knew how to rush your opponent and would lose in any long games or 2 vs 2+ brawl.
>>t. autist that played multiplayer for years.
china is the weakest team
Depends on the player but yeah, GLA was the best imo.
air > gla tox/stealth > everyone else
Kek, may as well play vanilla USA if you are playing as air vs GLA/China because you aren't getting anywhere in 1 v 1 tho Air general really hard counters the other USA generals.
>> Air vs Super Weapons was a favorite of mine with a friend of similar skill level, best matches i had.
Laser general was clearly the most OP by a ton.
>build laser perimeter
>build enough planes to take out artillery
>build particle canon
Have fun keeping your reactors intact, that works in single player but never in vs.
I have never lost in vs with it. You just have to keep the perimeter up while racing to build the particle canon first. If you're economy is insufficient to to repair perimeter or you don't build the particle canon first, then you're fucked. The only time I came close to losing was against the super bomber general (Air Force General?) because they kept doing suicide runs against my supply drops.
That said GLA had the most fun units.
>AK-47'S FOR EVERYBODY! YAY!
The heck how are you building a perimeter. Standard multiplayer match you used to start with 10k not 50 and you were playing the 1 vs 1 maps not in twilight flame with all the time to build your base, rush which was the most common multiplayer strategy would break you in half... Anon i can come with 10 diff strategies to beat laser both rushing or turtling but i would fully derail this thread.
your starting reactor and supply center next to command center so you place laser covering both buildings?
Get wreck by a single quad cannon downing your chinooks till you cannot send shit to loot.
and yet I was always winning somehow. I guess somehow I got lucky and only played against retards. Maybe it paired me with 13 year old downs syndrome Becky every time. Don't know, too busy winning to care.
We just were in a diff tier, for example obviously when I played LAN with close friends I used to build my base with the most beautiful arrangement and slow down to avoid ruining it for others, would never go as the tryhard I was back then online.
I did play some versus but it was kind of stressful. The joy of that game was relaxing in easy mode, at least for me. If I wanted to relax for a bit after class. I would change the text file in game to start with 100,000 cash or something and play as the laser general. I'd do a 1 vs. 5 match up but the team of 5 would be all tank general. Since tank general has no artillery and no meaningful air force, I would just chill and build my base while countless waves of tanks kept blowing up around the perimeter. Several particle canons were used to blow up any nuke launchers. Occassionaly the AI would just give up and quit with opponents just sitting in their base refusing to attack. Other times I would get bored and just turn it off or send the special forces guy in and blow up their entire base at one button press.
Sometimes you just want to chill for a bit.
Ngl, i enjoyed this as well. Specially the custom maps that were designed for this very purpose i remember there were a couple maps where the AI would have supplies with unlimited money.
laser general AI would have a glitch where their rocket infantry could apply laser targeting to any kind of building or unit at a range of a fucking artillery unit.
If any of you experienced this, which i forgot if it was patched or not, that made playing vs the laser general AI a fucking nightmare at times.
particle cannon was shit
Yeah, I always hated how if you misclicked you lost control and just had to watch it waste the rest of the laser hitting dirt.
You just too dumb to use it right.
and you're too sloppy.
no, it sucks because it has no area damage. scud storm was op. this thread doesn't belong here either.
angry mob spamming was the funnest thing in this game imo
Indeed, too bad moving them over large distances was a nightmare.
Is there anyway to play online anymore? I want to play some of you guys/
I used to play this a decade ago so i have no clue at all now a days, hamachi if you lacked a original copy.
Apparently some unironic ISIS supporters are Generals fans. Reminds me of that guy who draws Goku and Vageta as ISIS fighters.
I think there was a pic where they found several copies of this game among ISIS fighters belongings.
>tfw Generals might have idirectly inspired ISIS fighters.
>tfw you'll never have a horde of cloaked all terrain rpg motorbikes at your beck and call
>you will never have a fanatical army fresh from an ayahuasca ceremony willing to ride and die with you all the way
Kebabs have always loved Generals. Back in the 00s in Copenhagen, no netcafe was complete without at least two kebabs playin Generals multiplayer. It was just part of the inventory basically. Kebabs playing Generals, sweaty nerds playing DOTA and try harding, regular groups of friends playing other WC3 custom maps, 1-3 guys playing WoW, everyone playing CS, the early morning flatout rumble while half the people are dosing off. Others games played a lot was BF1942, BFDS, BF2, HL and HL2 deathmatch, always the nuke maps, CoH and other shit. But there would always be two kebabs playing Generals. Most often Americans actually. The most common sight looking over their should was patriot spam.
tha wondefu gloooww!
Based GLA believer.
I wonder if they jacked off to the idea of sinking an aircraft carrier and kicking the US outta Europe. Funny thing the Chinese banned this game over the portrayal of tiananmen square being nuked and hong Kong terror attacks but in the end they are being portrayed as the dominant super power as the US goes full isolationism.
Not enough tanks
Not enough planes
Not enough lasers
This one time in Command and Conquer, I was going to blow up a base and I made like 30 exploding trucks and sent them all to the enemy base but they drove their single file and when the first one blew up it exploded the one behind it and the one behind it and so on all the way back to my base where there were still a few left and it blew up my base and I lost the game.
This happened to me in the nuke general challenge vs stealth.
and build like 20 battlemasters and couple other tanks mixed in.
>>Hit a fucking booby trap.
>>As I don't have the isotope upgrade they all blow up with the strength of a nuke cannon discharge destroying the whole pack.
MELT EVERYTHING MUST MELT
>tfw used nuke battlemasters as suicide trucks rather than tanks
Getting attacked by Angry Mobs or the vaunted USA Humvee rocket thunder runs.
