Overall it looks pretty good, but I'm still disappointed by the simplicity of the economy system, and by the presense of "click to kill" support powers.

hmmmm...

not all is as bad it seems afterall...

well, im happy with some of the new things and the come-backs, like the Mirage Tank and the new and improved APOCALYPSE Tank Cool

the empire seems pretty convincingly similar to Yuri, but it should perform well.

Allies, boasting better units, even without Prism Tech, replace by a similar Spectum tech: can't they be any less unimaginative?Unhappy all in all, Allies will make a triumphant return.

Soviets (WARNING: the following text will be every biased) Will own everyone and everything that even dares attack the motherland, I really like the Engineer ability to deploy Battle Bunkers, Hammer Tanks that can take a weapon from a destroyed foe and almost every Soviet unit is decked out with super-explosive shit!Grin

And the three super-babes are revealed: Tanya, Natasha and Yuriko Omega. Good'ol Tanya, now with a potentially life saving Timebelt. Natasha, #1 Soviet pin-up girl that can decimate infantry and the drivers of tanks, allowing your infantry units to hop in and pilot them. And Yuriko Omega, Japanese school girl idol appearance with mind-blowing abilities, Literally.

hmm this has put my mind at rest for abit but i feel that the empire being able to build anywhere on the map very quickly could cause some real balancing problems in multiplayer Unhappy but only had a chance to have a real look at the soviets at the mo so will give more of my opinion when i have had a closer look at the other two sides

Yeah, the EotRS does seem a bit OP, and hopefully EA will sort that out in the beta.

The empire doesnt sound that strong. I mean look at it this way, I know when I saw Yury first come out, I thought Yury would be far too powerful and then balanced it fairly quickly--in particular with the moveable ore mining.

sorry but did you say that the yuris side was balanced Eek as that is totally rubbish as the yuri army is stupidly overpowered so much that still in most online games people wont let you play as that side and i feel the same is going to happen to the empire but i hope im wrong

Nah, I think Yuri's side was really underpowered on normal brute force.
As for min control...Well, it was a stupid idea but the stratigy was easily out-matched by overwhelming numbers and weapons of mass destruction...Happy

Sure, I felt it was relatively balanced. And most of those people who will not let you play as Yury, probably do not play very well. I never understood why people were always so against others having Yury. But then again, I always played as random if I could, so maybe I am biased.

[edit] Oh as for RA3, I am very eager for it to be released, which is probably why I have actually become active on this site again. Generals just didnt cut it for me, so my participation/reading this site dropped right around the revamp with the new boards etc. However, I will not have a PC capable of playing RA3 until next year at the earliest probably, so hopefully all the balancing issues will be worked out by then...(I am hoping EA supports this game a little more than most of their products). [/edit] heh

hey guys...haven't really had a chance to check out the information yet as I am in Europe at the moment on holiday, but from your comments it seems pretty interesting (apoc's review, etc). I can definately see how the EOTRS could be pretty weak unless you teched up extremely fast. Which was the main complaint from Yuri (mainly the boomer) that gave you a unit better than the dreadnaught with only radar tech. I'm also worried about no anti-missile defense for stationary targets (i.e. buildings), sure you can move your ships, but you cant just move your buildings.

Anyways, it's nice to have you back sbutter.

i think i will need a new pc for ra3 as its falling to pieces and so slow now Unhappy .But i think yuris side was overpowered i didnt mind people playing with yuri but when it came to equal sized armies fighting each other yuris army would normally win as there units seemed to have a perfect counter for every unit.The mastermind and psychic tower to stop large tank armies,venom to stop large infantry attacks,The Gattling Gun blew everything out of the air and the Boomer was the one of the most deadlest naval units ever.Included with the salve minner being able to harvest ore wherever without needing to build a refinery saved alot of time and cash so that why i feel that yuris forces was overpowered.Also where are you in europe erik??

I was in Europe for holiday, which continues this week. I'll be back to regular posting and news submissions in a week or so.
