It seems like a good oncept but at least in this beta they do not quite have it done right. Your hp needs to be much higher or dmg reduced. you need more ammo. also Why even if I make a new game is it I can't become the commander?

The teams are way to similar in appearance so you die allot while not trying to kill your teamates.

The big thing would be if you had resources to harvest and the commander controlled AI workers to do all the building/Harvesting. Also you shouldent have any mechs until the comander makes a factory and then builds a tank or other mech unit.

I could go on but I thin kyou get my point.

uhm....

I don't know if I should laugh or what...

First of: The big vehicle you see when you first start a server, that's your command vehicle, that's where you issue all the build commands (being the commander)

...so for gods sake don't do like the noobs and use it to rush the enemies with it...

(press F2 when you're in it to get into build mode where you can research etc.)

LOL I nver thought you might have to use a vehicle to build and stuff I mean it is counter intuitive to what most of us know about Real time strategy games.

Thnx I will try not using it yo rush the NME next time I play :P

LOL. I've seen that happen too many times.

It's funny when they lose and say "Why can't I shoot with the tank?"

Well you have to admit that it is a bit funny to have to be inside a vehicle to be the commander. I thought that at the beggining of the game you got to choose your commander and he was the commander for the  whole game.

I mean how many people would think to hop in a tank to go build stuff?

In C&C you had a construction vehicle that was your main course of building things. Without, you were dead. Empires plays the same way only it doesn't deploy, but a person has to be inside it.

Heh, you know what I would love? IF someone did a HL2 version of C&C: Renegade. In that you actually had tiberium refineries and tiberium harvesters... the only thing lacking was a commander.
