We haven't posted much news or major updates lately, but we've been working on several things behind the scenes. Here's a recap of some recent progress on CnCNet and related projects as well as events in our game communities.

CnCNet - in development

- Ranked Match client update - ability to queue all ranked ladders at once, with Sneer

- A new map database browser - follow the project-development chat with yuris-director, Zordon. ⁠

- A rewrite of the Yuri’s Revenge Spawner in C++, with Belonit

CnCNet - recent releases

- Ranked matches are divided into two leagues for Yuri’s Revenge - Champions and Contenders League. Contenders league allows newer players to compete in matches against similar skilled players.

- Ranked matches can be observed by a small vetted list of CnCNet streamers.

- Red Alert 2 Mode - Fixes Dog and Flak trooper behaviour, as per original Red Alert 2 gameplay. When dogs & Flak troopers are stationary, attacked, then commanded to move, they start running (crawling for Flak Trooper) and get a speed boost. Credits Belonit & Starkku
