"The map called "Six_Bridge_Deluxe" can't be downloaded because it is not found." - corrected
"Is there a prize for winning? 2nd place?" - project is not commercial, so prizes it is medals and player's ratings

Good, ill apply too. Only two questions:

- Why is it forbidden to build as GLA trough fake buildings? Thats the common GLA-s strategy, it is not bug and it is not unbalanced. GLA builds like that in many versions so far, and it will in 008 too. Fake buildings system costs more than normal building...its balanced.

- and why is it forbidden to use ECM units on robots? Robots are fast, immune to toxin, to hijackers and other stuff, but they are vulnerable to ECM. Its the system how robots works and this is the way how to fight them until they reach rank 3 and get data transmission upgrade, then they are immune to ECM too.

Those 2 are not bugs, and systems are balanced very well. You guys are trying to make all sides equal in building and fighting, like, build all buildings with normal speed, and fight with all forces the same. It reminds me on Chess play, not on Contra and on unique forces sides, good things and bad things.

One more thing about registration, why do i have to have skype ID to register? i dont have it, i never use it..

I saw those too and was confused. For registration, I just said "None" as my Skype ID.

The use of fake buildings GLA leads to imbalance. In many cases, the GLA does not leave any chances to his opponent.
Use of ECM against the robot does not leave any chances. They can block the plant, immediately turn off the robot army. But if you completely remove the use of ECM, while the robot is incredibly strong against the tank, because of his speed. So, the rules stated that "Use ESM to lock the Cybernetic general's warfactory, as well as the deliberate shutdown forces the robot according to business unit, also deliberated shutdown Cybernetic general's units by ECM." In 008 version of this fix. Troops the robot turned off slowly
Any of the items can demonstrate in practice
SkypeID desirable. With its simplified organization of the tournament and player search

So, only not to use ECM to shutdown dozer, power plant and war factory?

Ok, i respect that, its your tournament and your rules. But i dont think i will participate such tournament where tank general cant use all his units normally, and thus because of this, if he plays against cyber general, tank will probably lose...when trying to catch hit and run droids.

Listen, Contra is not perfect, many imbalance. We have tried to remedy this situation as (we have many years of experience, and we know what are talking about. Any item of the rules can show) When using ECM against the robot as you like, the robot will lose 99.99% of cases. I am responsible for my words

GLA fake building is balanced by more cost of fake building upgrade.

ECM is hard to make a rule to balance it.
No ECM = Tank fails
ECM = Cyber fails
Maybe, not using ECM for offensive purpose (defensive only) at rank 1

finally someone understands me. Yes, gla fake buildings are balanced. Gla has weak tanks. China nuke has super powerful tank hunters,and now i must sit and wait to enemy build up heavy force if i play against nuke? If i play against cyber with tank,i must let it win because ecm is not balanced? And super fast droids are not balanced? Amphibious dozer too? Those things bothered me while i was noob,now i understand them,those are unique factions and i also have many experience. I know that pro player can defend against ecm with robot til rank 3. I agree with casojin, compromis, use ecm in your own base, not for atack. But for fake buildings, i dont agree with you Feanor.

I said, I can show in practice. I will not show my skill, and bring a focus just on points of rules. You see, there is a notion of "100% loss", it will come, whatever you are doing. It true of many points of regulation.
I propose to move the discus at forum league. Able to connect to another player. It is important opinion of all

Yes, but the GLA, in some cases, due to more rapid construction of the plant gets a chance to win 100% or at least increase their.

Feanor, hamachi was working fine when casojin and i made tournament last year. We made 2 Contra_Tournament networks. Garena is best solution, and it works for me, but for some players it doesnt work. Create a network, if you wanna test it, i will join there.

dcesarec,why do not you install Skype? They communicate a lot easier. At the tournament primarily search opponents via Skype. It is very helpful in organizing.I will create a network. But only later. Soon to be futboll, Russia-Slovenia :)

I'm not going to talk about advantages Skype. But most people on Skype. Will be uncomfortable to look for all opponents in different ways. I think my logic is clear.
P.S. Slovakia 0-1 Russia:))
