Shout out to Wags. We played a couple co-ops maps tonight. Got smoked on the first one on normal so switched to easy. I had to leave 1/3rd into it because of a crying kid (she was hungee in bed). When I came back Wags had over half of the map. When I left we were barely even holding one area.

I really want to try it again on Normal and not have any interruptions.

I think we would have been OK on normal had I not broken down that wall and opened up a war on 2 fronts.

Fun game. I hadn't played anything but the first intro level so it was neat to see some of the other units and upgrades that are available to build.

Good point about the wall, I tried warning you. Maybe on harder difficulties they knock down the walls, but they don't on easy and normal. On normal the AI never uses the catapults either.

I want to try again! It's cool that coop maps are (obviously) different than single player.

When I was at Tyler place last , I played this game I like it reminds me of red alert. I had same problem with lvl 6 could not pass on normal. Speaking of red alert wish they would come out with a new game , or game like it on computer

Instead of doing those again (I'll make Travis play through this weekend) I did a 1v1 match. I got smoked, but the guy was really helpful and game me some good tips. It's pretty cool how you can casually talk to someone you are playing against in a RTS vs having to type chat back in the day.

Well that’s nice of you that you had me play them for you. Kind of late to post this but whatever

Since this game reminds me of command and conquer series , I been playing them on my computer to bad it only the campaign because there old games and don’t have online anymore. I got all the command and conquer games , 17 of them for $4:99.

They changed it now so the first 3 levels are unlocked when you buy the game

Corey played with me after TWD! Since he only has the free demo we couldn't do co-op and there was only one map for 1v1. It was Corey's first time playing ever so I tried walking him through the controls while still dominating him.

If this comes on sale on the 28th maybe I can get him or Bmyoungs to buy it with their free credit.

Cames are starting to get a little repetitive, but I'm still enjoying it. It's tough because I was getting cocky and switched to hard and got dominated. Then I went back to normal on a new map and also lost. I wonder if the 3 AI players have different strategies?

UPDATE!
Filtered Selection which allows you to grab all of a specific unit type in a group (activated by pressing the thumbstick to the side while selecting)…

Matchmaking Skill Ranking which is used to track your success in online battles and help you match against players of similar skill…

...and now Tower Rally Points (!!!) will allow you to direct all units from a tower to a specific spot on the map when spawned. Yup, you heard that right! See below.

Played the first time yesterday since the update. Finer control of troops is great.
