    The game is a cakewalk even on hard and the game keeps throwing boring base defense missions or ones where I can straight up just park a couple rhino tanks where the enemy MCV is planning on landing and win the mission early.

    Not to mention the pitiful excuse of HP on every unit/building and how the optimal way to play is to spam rhinos and constantly issue move orders so they can both dodge and attack enemies simultaneously.

    At least in RA1 (Remaster)/TS you have to either use the move+guard (ctrl+alt) trick or Q move to dodge. I had totally forgotten about the removal of ore storage entirely and how you can't even capture enemy harvesters with engineers in RA2 as well.

    With all that said, the TS/RA2 engine is still top tier and I'm trudging through the final couple of missions to try a new mod that has you play as the opposing force of every vanilla RA2 campaign mission which should be considerably more challenging. Thanks for subscribing to my blog.

    I think the chief difference for me is that RA2 gives you many more tools to break the monotony and go through missions in ridiculous ways. In RA1 there's really no way of winning other than amassing a doomstack and rolling over the enemy base, in RA2 you can just as well win using no units other than chinooks and SEALs.

    Also, I'm pretty sure you can capture harvesters with engineers as long as the harvester is docked in a refinery that you are stealing.

    All those tools are for the allies though, which is what I had last played when I had fond memories of RA2's campaign but when you're soviets, you're pretty much stuck just spamming rhino tanks since everything else is shit, including V3 rockets and the only air you get is kirovs in the second to last mission onwards.

    I tried capturing enemy harvesters multiple times throughout the campaign and either I failed multiple times or they straight up took it out. Hard to tell when harvesters in RA2 unload so quickly.
