Right, let me make a few excuses for myself (lolita). Firstly, I never try to ruin anyones game, it always comes naturally :lol: Secondly, yes I did take out Leningrad, but only because I was targeting MOR's silo, which was sitting virtually on top of that city. Thirdly, it was my first ever 3v3 Def...

Ah. thanks Ace. I've been playing for six months, but still learn something new every day (when will it ever end?! :cry: )

I spectated Mike the Wookkiee and Radiant Caligula (amongst others) last night, and got some great (read: incredibly sneaky :lol: ) tips.

Well, I've played two (started two anyway :( ). In the first one, four of the players thought that subs being visible was a bug, and promptly left, before I could convince them it wasn't. Minor issue, that will no doubt die down in a few days. In the second game, my neighbours' fighters started atta...

I can't wait to play :D (I'll report back if anything goes awry). YES!!! all those kick requests at Defcon 5 and 4 will be a thing of the past. Can you disable private messaging for the duration too? :roll: (only joking). No, seriously, if possible, do it. Now all I need for my life to be complete i...

I like the way you sent the bombers off at a right angle, then 'slingshot' the nukes back at an unsuspecting fleet 8) .
If I'm sending a group of bombers after a target that I can't see, I leave the lead bomber on naval combat mode for the extra radar range.

To those who had connection problems: I'm using a 56k dial-up connection, with a 32 meg. graphics card. I was being cut off in nearly every game until I implemented the following drastic measures. 1: All graphics options are set to the absolute minimum, apart from water, which is left on 'Normal' (i...

Thanks all who read the post - I'm sure you would have helped if you could. IV. have given me a new Keycode. They said my old one was probably compromised. As I'm 110% certain that I haven't given out the code, or allowed anyone near to my computer or Cd Rom case, I'm flummoxed as to how this might ...

Correct me if I'm wrong. You tried to play the singleplayer game as a Demo-user? As a new Demo-user myself :x I'm pretty certain that you can only play multiplayer games (by clicking on: Join Game) But feel free to tell me I'm wrong anyone (as I'm desperate for some practice against Bots :cry: )

Key Revoked: Retail version

I've been playing since late May/early June (whenever the retail version was released in the UK :? ) with no problems, but last week my Key was revoked for no apparent reason. Things I've tried so far to remedy it: 1: asked Bert. :D 2: searched this section of the forum for answers 3: wracked my bra...
