    TA was awesome but way too long. Me and a m8 used to play on the metal maps

    Krogoth army vs army of sniper bots.

    We used to battle 2vs 6 ai with custom Addons increasing the unit count, adding in modded units.

    Krogoth was the ultimate weapon of doom though enough the ai was smart enough to relise a few nukes work wonders.

    Wether PA can ever be as good I have my douts.

    Heheh...lost a few hours playing Ground Control this week.
    Benefit of an old game is the 800x600 resolution support witch makes it perfectly playable on a netbook :D
    The download linked in this thread works fine, didn't require a key* or internet connection to play. And is patched to the last version (2004) ;)

    *it says it does, but it doesn't, which is good as the free key service linked with the program has shut down.

    I spent numerous gaming sessions in the 90s at LAN parties playing Battle Zone instead of TA. What was cool about Battle Zone was it had a lot of the RTS elements but it was also first person. And it had no AI so you had to go PVP which was way more fun.
