Renegade- The practical man's base
Written by DAWUSS


Renegade is a FPS for Tiberian Dawn (TD). Well, if you put one into the other, it can become an ugly matter in a matter of seconds. A typical TD Nod base of mine would contain (excluding captured things):

4-6 Obelisks

2 Airstrips

3 Tiberium Refineries (And a team of about 6 Harvesters

2 Hands of Nod

1 Communications Center

1 Construction Yard

A whole lot of Advanced Power Plants (While having only 1 Power Plant)

A concrete border

In Renegade a typical Nod base has:

1 Airstrip

1 Power Plant

1 HON

1 Refinery

And on occasions 1 Obelisk

In Tiberian Dawn, though it doesn't qualify for being my 'cheap base' (it would contain a Power Plant, a Refinery, and a HON for Nod), a Renegade base is almost nothing when matched up to a TD base.

Let's make a comparison.

1 Obelisk

1 Power Plant

1 HON

1 Airstrip

to

4 AGTs

2 Weapons Factories

1 Construction Yard

2 Barracks

1 Advanced Comm Center

2 Tiberium Refineries

4 Repair Pads

8 Helipads

And enough Advanced Power Plants to power the base

It would take a miracle Nod General to overcome the odds of winning that fight. GDI could produce a Mammoth Tank faster than Nod can produce a Flame Tank. And a Flame Tank, when going against 4 AGTs, becomes totally unlucky (nearly impossible). Several Mammoth Tanks could level that Obelisk down no matter how hard it tries to fight back, even with all those Technicians reparing it. Nod only gets one chance to defend its structures. Once the airstrip's gone, its over. Once a Weapons Factory is gone, GDI still has a chance to get vehicle production out. The Power Plant is evenly matched up on both sides, but infantry reinforcement is gone when Nod loses its HON, and GDI still has another set of Barracks still up.


So the winner would be GDI by a landslide as Nod could never even penetrate the GDI base. So for those of you wanting a TD experience in MP, then go out and make a base for:

GDI:

6 AGTs

3 Tiberium Refineries

1 Con Yard

1 Advanced Comm Center

10 Helipads

About 10 Advanced Power Plants

2 Weapons Factories

Nod:

4 Obelisks

4 Turrets

2 Tiberium Refineries

1 Con Yard

1 Comm Center

8 SAMs

2 Airstrips

3 HONs

And about 10 Advanced Power Plants

Beats the ol' Renegade bases doesn't it?
