From: deadly virus | #007 after watching the vid, I seriously underestimated the power of tesla tanks.
On their own or in small groups of less than 5, they're best off used as base defences. Once you get to about 6 or so, they can become a lethal way of ambushing small expeditions or Ore Trucks. 10 or more, and you can do some serious damage to most bases.
seems weird. when Im playing as the allies, I tend to mircomanage my units better, but if Im playing as the soviets, I don't really seem to care as much
Same here. It's probably due to Soviet units having that extra firepower that losing one or two Heavy Tanks just doesn't really matter, and you can just press on anyway. Either that, or you get possessed by Stalin and copy the actual Soviet tactic of just throwing waves of units forward until the enemy breaks.

was playing Red Alert 2 today and somewhat recovered from an embrassing match. I let a soviet flak track ride right into my base and I ended up losing a bunch of buildings.. including my construction yard. I proceded to get gang-banged by the other 3 AI's on the map.
skipping to the end: I had nothing but 1 power plant and 3 elite rocket infantry. I could've won with just those 3... but I had short game selected and ended up losing my power plant..thus losing the game.
- defend your ****ing base - rocketeers are kick ass when used properly - don't play short game unless it's a large map
