Greentexting ..on OCN ..really?

Sometimes it's the only way one can express one's feelings towards stuff.

Hopefully for ppl who are going to invest time into this game, EA don't screw you over with having to buy factions, pay-for units/buildings, and maps.

Generals SP campaign was awful, it had no real story and no FMV cutscenes unlike the other cnc games, I spent much more time with the MP. So this not having a SP does not concern me.

"no single player campaign on launch"

"EA"

There is going to be $5-$20 DLC for a single player campaign.

I haven't read the article but I am going to read it now to see if my predictions are going to be accurate.


Well I couldn't find anything that can proves my prediction is correct but I can't find anything that says it's incorrect. Either way I'm not going to get it until there is a single player campaign and it's not paid for DLC. I also won't get it if it's not available on Steam.

MP is good to have and some games are made just for MP but if I as a PC gamer would play MP it would be MAX 2-3 at a time. You cant play more then that or you would not stay remotely close to competitive. Also for most games i play MP its 2-3 year or at least until they get replaces. I used to Play SC2 10-15 Hours a week and 10 hours of BF3. Now that i play Dota 2 i dont play those MP games much. I play Single Player games from time to time.

Well, what exactly is wrong with that? You'll be getting the campaign a lot cheaper than it would be if it was a full price game.

While I don't really care about the lack of single-player, I'm a little nervous of how they will end up doing the F2P thing. Too many F2P games are way too imbalanced or not that much fun for free players

The original C&C's before EA bought Westwood had the most fun and involved single player campaings. Those campaings are what made the game for me, once EA bought them out the stories started to suck, but a C&C without a single player story/campaing? "Forget About It"!

Dang, Quoteing sucks in this new interface, i can never quote from the artcle that is quoted in the first post.

Way stupid.


Anyways, I wanted to point out how they are saying, "Van Caneghem said that the studio “really want to get back to the roots of what made Command & Conquer great.”".


Solo play made the game great. In fact, if it wasn't for the solo play, no one would be playing the game at all.

Stupid devs, don't know jack.

I think he was indicating that he wants to re-invigorate the competitive leagues.

C&C had the best competitive on-line leagues in the world within the RTS genre. Nothing even came close to the calibre of skills of the C&C elite.

Seems to me that EA want some of Blizzards Starcraft pie.

Forgetting that C&C was always about a single player storyline. I very much doubt I will be buying this game...
