I totally didn't expect that day to be so exciting! I met new friends! We did stuff together! But first things first.
Few days ago i was on a patrol mission at a village near the allied base. A Cavalier tank attacked us! The battle was hard! I barely managed to survive! And then, some GIs attacked me! If it was the only thing that happened...
Here am i after i tried to give the 2 tiny GI's a hug. Unfortunately, they couldn't stand the tank's weight. But i really wanted to give a hug to someone! Luckily for me, i spotted 2 strange Adepts at the shore, so i went to them!
At first i thought they're my enemy, but then we had some vodca together. We're friends now! One of them even offered to do a lobotomy for me! (don't know what it is, but it does sound so nice!)
My friends making more friends at some allied base. Sadly, poor GIs didn't want to be friends with each other, so they killed themselves.
I later have a hug to that poor lonely sniper! The Pillboxes, though, didn't want to be friends, so i had to leave.
Here am jumping on one of my older friends from a container at our base. Those guys really didn't expect me to do that! GLOMP!
Here's me with my new friend, Lasher Tank. We were beaten pretty badly up by some Gun Turrets, and we have to take a rest. Bad, bad Turrets.
And here's me with my friend almost ready to go. My Adept friends said something about killing only those Conscripts that will attack me.
Here's me and my Adept friends, with some strange Conscript talking like Sean Connery. Just before, my Lasher friend decided to face 2 Bad Gun Turrets alone. I tried to stop him, but it was too late!
Me with my Adept friends, after escorting last one of 3 Sean Connery Conscripts brothers to our War Factory. Are they having a party or something, and i'm not invited?
Me and my Adept friends departing. And who would have though that, they tried to leave me here! What, a Borolo cannot lift a tank? Nonsense, trololo!
Borillo driver didn't look very happy, though...
Woo! Mission Score! Did we win anything?

I'm very excited to announce that today marks Revora's 10th anniversary. We're still alive and kicking after all these years!
Revora was introduced at the end of June 2004 by merger of the C&C Guild and the Origin Network. A week later, the process of merging the databases was complete and Revora was officially born. All these years we've supported mods and other creative projects by giving them a home on the world wide web. Some projects have since moved and found new homes, some were cancelled and many are still successful today. All of them have given their creators and user endless hours of joy (and, at times, frustration).
One of our most recent endeavours has been T3A:Online, a re-implementation of the abandoned GameSpy-powered online multiplayer servers for the Battle for Middle-earth series, in September 2013. This marked a new chapter in Revora's history, using our skill to improve the multiplayer experience for all enthusiastic players.
The work on this server has put us in the very fortunate position that we are prepared for the imminent total shutdown of GameSpy and the loss of online multiplayer functionality for the modern Command & Conquer series. Games affected are C&C Generals and Zero Hour, C&C3 Tiberium Wars and Kane's Wrath as well as C&C Red Alert 3. We can proudly say that our C&C:Online server is ready even before GameSpy has gone offline!
But Revora has never just been about our projects: we are very proud of our vibrant and international community and Revora has played an important part in many people's lives. As life goes, many then-teenagers have grown up and left their Revora years behind, becoming working adults. Others remain here until today - like me. I joined Revora in August 2005 at the age of 15, interested in modding BFME. Over the years I've had the pleasure to support Revora in various positions, eventually becoming Network Leader. And I hope to serve this community of excellent people for many more years, in one way or another.
In the name of the entire Revora staff I want to thank you for your support over the last 10 years and invite old and new members alike to celebrate this anniversary with us and share your Revora stories here.
And to our American friends: happy Fourth of July!
Revora Network Leader and
Executive Director of the Revora Association

So since there were people who think that HQ that HQ sucks or HQ is OP, I've written a guide about this side. Of course you can add your own HQ tactics if you have any. This guide was written by me, mostly using my knowledge and some from mevitar's knowledge.
I hope it will serve good purpose for you.
General information about Headquarters:
Headquarters or simply HQ is one of the hardest factions in terms of gameplay. HQ is about making mass of infantry units and of course stealth assaults. Infantry units play vital role in the gameplay and it is almost impossible to play without them as HQ and this sub-faction also supports them with various support powers. Due to the fact that Shadow Tank belongs to this faction it is also possible to make stealth based attacks, ambushes. Of course this doesn’t mean that you should run into a base and destroy everything in it, because that is impossible if your opponent plays well.
Gameplay information about the HQ unique units and support powers:
Stalker is an anti-structure and anti-infantry support infantry. They are quite expensive and in sheer numbers they can tear apart any kind of structure in seconds. Stalker has the ability to immobilize enemy infantry from great distance, which allows the player to easily eliminate heroes such as Siegfried and Volkov with Invaders or Basilisks. However, they can’t damage infantry and they must be defended always. Stalker takes 2 passenger slots in tranports, so it is quite expensive to do a Driller APC ambush with them. He is immune to dog bite.
Rahn is the genetically manipulated hero of Headquarters. Rahn is one of the most agile and powerful heroes in the game. His weapon can deal great damage to both armor and structures. He mutates enemy infantry into Brutes, but there are exceptions (for example Dogs, Dreamweavers, Chitzkoi, Volkov and other cyborgs), this means that they will simply die from one shot. Furthermore every infantry, but the exceptions turns into Brutes, if they are in the line of the shot. He is immune to dog bite. While Rahn is very powerful it is advisable to keep him safe. With the Driller APC you can transport him with a single Stalker to do ambushes and to elimininate for example a structure.
Opus Custom Tank:
Opus is the basic tank for HQ. While it is a basic tank it can carry an infantry (which doesn’t take more than 1 passenger slot) and that infantry operates a second barrel (if the infantry isn't a dog nor a Dreamweaver). Opus with an infantry is a less armored, faster version of the Qilin Tank and that means that it can do lots of damage to both armor and structures. Since it can be used as a transport you can do special strikes on the enemy with this tank. Placing engineers in them can be used to safely capture tech structures and to capture enemy buildings. Opuses can weaken enemy buildings and if you weaken them enough you can capture that building with only 1 engineer. Of course, this tactic doesn’t work on uncapturable ones.
Shadow Tank uses the power of stealth and this means that the enemy never knows from where they will attack. It’s dissolver beam is powerful against both armor and infantry, but it doesn’t do much damage against buildings, so it isn’t advisable to attack bases with them (with a great number of Shadow Tanks it is possible to sneak in less defended points and attack). While it only reveals itself when attacking Shadow Tank has fragile armor so it isn’t advisable to attack with them straightforwardly. They are very good for ambushes and harassing miners. They can be used as stealth detectors in your army.
Colossus is an anti-armor and anti-air heavy armored unit. Colossus can deploy into it’s anti-air mode which is quite effective against air units, but it can’t attack ground units while deployed. It is really good anti-armor too, but it shouldn’t be used alone, because base defenses and infantry can tear it apart easily. Colossus offers good defense to you army from both armor and air.
Aerial Fortress Irkalla:
Mental Omega 3’s most iconic unit. While this masterpiece looks almost unbeatable it mustn’t be used alone. She can’t handle heavy anti-air spam alone. She must remain well protected from enemy fire. She has two type of weapon: dissolver beams and imploders. The dissolver beams are very effective against infantry and can be used for anti-air purposes too. The imploders shoot „fireballs” which will follow the target until they hit it or run into an obstacle. The fireballs explodes, which deals damage not only to the targeted unit, but units nearby the targetted one too. Build it only if your army is always ready to protect her, because losing her is a great loss, since she costs very much. Excellent for base defense and giving an all round defense for your army. If used properly she can even outrange anti-air base defenses.
Kinetic Barrier is a free support power which increases the resistance of the affected infantry to enemy fire. This can save your infantry from being doomed if used in good time. Using it on a spam of Brutes for example can be deadly for your opponent.
Not much can be said about this one. It can be used to weaken enemy infantry and if they are already damaged enough then you can turn them into loyal Brutes.
How to play as HQ:
When the warfactory is built then you should build 2 Stingers/Gatling Tanks (it would be better to use Stingers, because with engineers you can counter Terror Drone attacks) and 2 Opus Custom Tanks. Use these for defending your base from various units. After these units are ready build 3-4 Ghost Miners to have a good income. After the War Factory you should build a Radar Spire to gain access to Brutes and Shadow Tanks. Train Brutes and when the building of the Miners has been finish you should build some Gatling Tanks, Opus Tanks and Stingers, after this you should start to build Shadow Tanks. Good thing about HQ is that they can stay at T2 relatively long. Build War Factory and Barracks or if you want to tech up quickly then Pandora Hub after Radar Spire. With Shadow Tanks you can harass your opponent's Miners and they are also good for assassinating units or even a whole army (if you know from where to attack). It is also recommended to train Dreamweavers and Duneriders. Dreamweavers can create distractions between enemy units while Duneriders are excellent anti-infantry, anti-structure infantry with the ability to detect cloaked units. When you reach T3 then build a Driller APC, train Rahn and a Stalker and start to build Cloning Vats. You can do surprise attacks with Rahn + Stalker + Driller APC combo. When Cloning Vats is ready it is advisable to train Brutes again, but this time train Epsilon Adepts, Stalkers and Archers too. In the War Factory, build at least 5 Colossuses (it isn't a big problem if you build more of them) and at least 5 Basilisks (same what I said for Colossus). The final unit for your army should be Irkalla. This army is more then enough to be able to use Irkalla properly. Now let's see some tactics.
Driller APC ambush: With Rahn and a Stalker you can take out valuable structures such as Battle Labs and War Factories with ease. You can also eliminate tech structures with them, which you don't want to attack with your forces.
Miner harassment: With a decent amount of Shadow Tanks you can turn enemy miners into ashes in seconds.
Opus rush: Building 3 Engineers and putting them into 3 Opus Custom Tanks can be used for several purposes. One is that they are quite effective against armor and structures. Other thing is that you can unload the engineers whenever and wherever you want and capture that structure (you can even capture a CY if you are fast enough). You can also weaken structures with Opus Tanks so you will need only 1 engineer to capture that one.
Irkalla as a base defense destroyer: Not many people know this, but Irkalla can slightly outrange basic air defenses so she can safely destroy them. Of course in order to accomplish this, you have to place Irkalla where she begins to attack them. Although you still need to protect here from anti-air units. Because of this she can also eliminate those base defenses, which are guarded by anti-air defenses.
Basilisks + Stalkers: This one just like the previous one needs a good army to be able to accomplish it. Stalkers can destroy anti-air defenses, allowing Basilisks to be able to move closer to the enemy's base and attack it. It is advised to keep Irkalla, Colossuses and Archers near to them.
Kinetic Barrier + Archers/Brutes: When the enemy would approach you with threatening units you can use Kinetic Barrier on a group of Brutes so they will die harder from those units. If that unit is an air one (for example Thor Gunship) you can use this tactic against it with Archers.
As United States:
Since Abrams Tank can't handle Brute spam alone you'll need other tactics. Using Mercury strike on your opponent's forces is very good, although Mercury reloads a bit slowly. Tanya + Stryker IFV gives a mobile Mercury, which is good against infantry. Basilisks and Irkalla can't be countered by Aeroblazes. It is also good to use many Navy SEAL-s because they can get rid off Brutes efficiently. Basswaves can be used too, although they aren't very efficient against heavy forces of infantry.
As European Alliance:
This side is one of the sides, which can counter HQ easier than others Siegfried, Prism Tank are good infantry butchers. Thor Gunship is also efficient in terms of killing infantry, also it can kill Irkalla quickly, but don't rush with them, if the enemy's Irkalla is well defended.
As Pacific Front:
Pacific Front has several units which are good against infantry spam. Hailstorms can easily get rid of them from high distances. Blizzard Tank can also do this although it doesn't have as much range as the Hailstorm. Have Battle Fortresses with 4G.GIs in each of them, because they kill air units very quickly.
Wolfhounds won't help against an experienced HQ player, because of the Colossuses and Archers. In fact Russia has disadvantage against a well prepared HQ army, but Russia has a good unit: SCUD Launcher. SCUD Launchers in big numbers can deal with mobs of infantry and armor with ease. It is advisable to focus them more when you play against HQ as Russia. Have Wolfhounds and other forces to defend them.
As Latin Confederation
The Latin Confederation has lots of units which can easily deal with infantry spam. First is the hero, Morales. The second unit isn't used that much as I've seen and it is a big mistake. This unit is the Buratino. Buratino can deal with masses of infantry from distance easily, while you can harass the armored units with Morales. Keep Drakuvs in the base, because they can abduct enemy infantry and that infantry will be yours, forever. Of course you can defend your forces with the good old Catastrophe + Desolator combo.
China has more disadvantage against HQ than any other factions. Sentinels aren't very efficient against Irkalla. Nuwas can be countered by either Epsilon Adepts or Brutes. Eradicators and Gyrocopters can help against infantry. In fact, if you manage to build many Gyrocopters you can deal with Irkalla relatively quickly.
The only things that help against HQ are Gehennas and Libra. Gehennas can take out Irkalla and Libra can be used for harassment. Basilisks can help against infantry spam. Magnetrons can immobilize Rahn and the Stalkers so your units can deal with them.
As Scorpion Cell
Scorpion Cell has Basilisks and Plague Splatters. Both of them are efficient against infantry, but it isn't necessary to use both of them at the same time. Oxidizer + Gatling Tank can deal with Irkalla and other air units with seconds. Scorpion Cell units are also fast so they can ignore the forces and attack the base directly. This tactic works well with Tyrants.

Kivz, I've got good news. The changes you've requested have largely been implemented in a special version of MO.
It's a bit toned down from 3.0 though, so we've decided to shorten the title as well. Instead of calling it Almost Perfect Yuri's Revenge..
..we're just calling it Yuri's Revenge.
Seriously though, most of the changes you're suggesting are just reverting things back to the original game. That kinda defeats the purpose of the mod in the first place ya'know?

Welcome to the HQ of the Mentalmeisters! I hope you will enjoy your stay here. Take a jacket; it is cold in Antarctica.
Don't mind the guy at the door, he is Martin the Guard. He helps to maintain this place and keep it safe. Don't be intimidated by him. When he is the bouncer around here, no even Rahn can resist him.
I am your local Epsilon Adept instructor. I make simulations of military battles you call 'missions' and have you complete them as part of your training. The weakest of minds usually give up in the early stages, and the tormented expressions from those Initiates are recorded and filed to assist in the research of the Rage Inductor, and those that are also rejected by the scientists there (quite rare) will go to the Reaper, who is currently working a project with the image of a bird, as well as what looks like an alien artefact. The best of minds, however, graduate with profound skills that can ensure their future success in the Epsilon army.
By the way, RP is your Epsilon Elite instructor, and the Kiting Trike is your One-True-Yuri instructor. Assisted by a man almost of Roman nobility, we three are jointly 'responsible' for the making and appearance of our Adepts, Elites and Yuri. The mass of uprooted hairs sometimes mark the rate of progress by these talentless people who desire to be the talented. But of course, hair loss is a minor setback that pales in comparison of the mastery of the mind.
There is an alternate way to achieve success in mind games. Zen (or Zeno) can teach you how to keep calm and be one with Yuri, if you can stand his lore. Be careful though, Zen has a Mal-icious ver-sion of himself which when activated can cost you your life. But no worries, inner peace gained that way is permanent.
I must apologise that the above poster is keeping Libra occupied, so you have to settle for the current set of training regimes.
We seek to improve on our methods to the point of extremity and will love your feedback on our training methods. For positive feedback, you can directly notify your trainer-in-charge. For complaints, we have a specialized department for the purpose of administering and recording complaints, headed by ImP_Rulz.
Next, we will move to the gallery where the finest art by our best artisans. This spinning top with a woman's voice is crafted and shaped by a Thing inside the Mental Omega, who is also in charge of DeeDee. Here is a wide array of works by one of the best talents in HQ, except he apparently disappeared from the building and swam from Antarctica to his native homeland. The complaints department has also contributed some paintings of our prestigious men of the army. And here are the works of an artist who just left his namesake here... this bowl of glowing noodles is not for consumption. Don't worry, its radioactivity is small enough for human approach.
Disclaimer: The office of Mentalmeisters bears no responsibility for any loss, monetary or non-monetary, that may have incurred from your time in the HQ, directly or indirectly. For disputes regarding this disclaimer, proceed to the complaints department.
Just having a try on introducing the staff in a proper and somewhat formal fashion.

Edited for another story came to mind.
Story 1: The Butcher
The stench of blood is in the air, and Volkov did not know whose it was. Was it his? Chitzkoi's? Allied soldiers? Soviet soldiers? All or none of the above? Who knows. World War II dragged on quite long for Volkov's tastes, and death was everywhere.
The merciless orders from Command had started to take a toll on the man, as his life devolved into a legalized slaughterer. The only one who could ever understand him was Chitzkoi, his faithful canine, who too was forced to slaughter.
An odd thing. He brought it on like a plague, and yet, here he was, at his final moments. Those that fed him, and gave him life were now coming to destroy him. He wouldn't go out quietly.
His last days had earned him a title. One he would remember...
His eyes closed, but immediately opened again, in a newer facility. He couldn't feel his arms nor his legs, yet he could see them... or at least, he thought those were his arms and legs.
What were once his arms are now fused into an eldritch device, a bizarre Tesla cannon which seemed to leech away from his own life. When he was able to move, he felt a great weight on his back... A small, personal Tesla Reactor (the Soviets evidently stopped using coal a decade ago) was built and attached to his back, and was his lifeline. He saw Chitzkoi, or at least, a shadow of him. While the dog Volkov remembered was an aggressive, yet still normal creature, this Chitzkoi had only the eyes of a beast. A thing of massive rage for all things living. Almost a reflection of himself.
Something also snapped in Volkov's brain. The constant thought of death. Not just his own, but the death of civilians, Allies, Soviets, everything in his sight. A maniacal grin entered his face, the remaining skin over his titanium skull tearing apart even more, making him appear as some sort of mechanical zombie.
The Butcher hath returned.
Story 2: He Misses a Girl?
It was an odd day that Volkov, Chitzkoi, Yunru and Morales had to work together. Volkov was free, utterly murdering his foes with an unquenchable battle glee, whilst Chitzkoi unleashed his rage like the devil made manifest.
Morales and Yunru decided to plan out an ambush with some Engineers; Yunru would disable some Cavaliers, Morales would kill the drivers, whilst the Engineers took them over.
There was something... off about the other commandos, so thought the girl. Volkov was... a raving psychopath through action and thought, whilst Morales seemed to have a charismatic flair despite being half as insane as the Butcher... Much like some actors in a theatre she watched during the Chinese's cooperation with the Pacific Front. What was the term the soldiers used? A large ham? Yeah, that was it. Morales was a ham the size of New York, and he installed a microphone onto his sniper rifle so that he could share this talent to his enemies. Fortunately, his foes only have seconds before they either incinerate from being in the crossfire or having their brains blasted out before they could tell where he was.
Morales shot a tank, and spouted out a quote. "I miss my girl... BUT I WON'T MISS YOU!"
Yunru paused for a brief moment. He had a life other than the death squad? This got her curious, as she never thought as soldiers as being anything less than committed to the fight or otherwise distracted.
When the mission was successful, Morales shot the pair of tranquilizer darts needed to put Volkov and Chitzkoi to sleep and they proceeded to the assigned Borrilo for evacuation. After Volkov was recovered, Yunru finally asked the sniper about that thing that was bugging her. Morales chuckled, and proceeded with his tale.
Years before joining up with the death squad, he met an American girl. She had spunk, and a competitive attitude. And much like him, she was a firearms expert. Each time they went to the firing range, they'd blast all the targets in sight, before anyone so much as had a chance to blink. Eventually, the relation ended on a sour note, both of them had work to do. Morales began his work as an assassin, and the girl was never seen again... That is, until World War III. Morales saw his girl, and his girl saw him. He was Soviet and she was Allied. No matter how long the battle lasted, neither soldier were able to even get a scratch on the other, whether it be due to reflexes or due to hesitation on both soldiers' parts. Eventually, they had to part, considering they both had objectives to complete.
Yunru looked at Morales, who seemed to lose a bit of his flair and gained a bit more sorrowful mood. Fortunately, it was at this time Yunru had to depart from the transport.
It was then that Morales pulled out a photo and sighed.
"She's the best there is, that Tanya."

1/10, terrible review.
It's up to the developers whether they want to continue to patch the mod or not. You didn't pay for it, or contribute to it's creation. It was purely the work of passionate hobbyists. Any fandom I'm sure is welcome, but when you stop being supportive and start being entitled, it stops being helpful.
You clearly haven't tried to inform yourself on why saving and loading is disabled. It's done so because the logic takes a lot of work to fix and maintain while new gameplay logic is being added to Ares. Now, MO 3.0 relies very heavily on new Ares logics and most, if not all modern mods, wouldn't be half as interesting without it. It's been incredibly valuable in keeping mods fresh after 15 years of YR modding. So getting rid of saving/loading is an easy choice IMO. AlexB has been working very hard on getting it to work and made great progress, but it will always be something that needs to be maintained as features are added, and he's just a hobbyist too, working on Ares all by his lonesome.
How do hard missions really make it "very disappointing"? You're ignoring all the good stuff just because it's too hard for you. It's too hard for me too, but the incredible voxel work, the new faction designs, all the maps and sounds, gamemodes- everything is of the highest quality in the community and just because I can't finish the missions doesn't make it a bad game, at all. It might be a negative for you, but it cannot ruin the whole thing. Furthermore the missions are almost objectively better in terms of design and technical complexity than any 2.0 mission, and that needs recognizing too. Not to mention 2.0 missions were often broken or had you hunt down the last stealth tank like a dummy.
A closed beta is again the developers prerogative. They don't owe you anything. They can pick and choose who they want. And let's face it, there have been MO 3.0 leaks in the past too that can give people the wrong impression if things change afterwards. They don't even need to have a beta if they don't want to. Surprises are always nice and waiting for it is fine, as long as the final release is beautiful.
Your review of post support is also silly. 1/10 forgets all the community support that has been going on. There's always someone here responding to people's technical troubles, feedback and idea contributions, lore discussions etc. There are constant news posts to supply people with the latest development information. That doesn't deserve 1/10, it's better than a lot of real games companies. The lack of patches is a fair criticism I share, but again they owe neither of us anything.
Also, MO 1.2 didn't have any missions, so that seems factually inaccurate.
I'm not a developer, I don't have access to the new beta and I'm no MO fanboy. I just think this topic is crap.
