Hey guys, found a gem today while cleaning my house! old copy of rise of legends i sparked into action and wanted to play (as i have fond memories and always thought it was a good RTS) the CD doesnt work as its been throughly used but there is a game code in the case! would anyone know where to redeem?

TL:dr, Where can i redeem a ROL game code?

The code is probably a CD key, used to verify that your copy of the CD is legitimate. It is probably not a product key that you can redeem for a digital copy of the game.

I have heard of people emailing publishers to ask for a digital copy and sending them a photo showing that they own the game, however Rise of Legends doesn't even seem to be available digitally in the first place (Rise of Nations is on Steam, but not Rise of Legends).

My suggestion is to just pirate it.

I did the Derek thing. Found my Generals CD but not the key (was printed on a receipt which was no longer readable). Sent EA a message with a photo and BAM! Free Generals activated on my Origin account.

Hmm, I should try that. I've been using a no CD crack to run Zero Hour, but it's been finicky as hell. An Origin copy would be nice.

I've never heard of somebody having issues with the no CD crack.

One thing to keep in mind is that most popular mods don't work on the EA version though. No Shockwave, no Rise of the Reds. Kinda stupid but w/e.

Zero Hour also has an issue with 1440p screens, it's way too zoomed in to be playable. Makes me miss the variable zoom from the Sup Com series.

Gentools should fix the zoom issue.

March was the biggest month for the past 6 years, nearly 3,000 games.

April is going on now, but most people are worn out till the next big sponsored month of May.

That's....impressive. I figured nobody would be playing aside from a few dedicated people.

Which patch do people play on? 1.04 or 1.06?

Sadly it's still on 1.04.

Many 1.06 tournaments were held, but people just weren't interested in switching patches all the time, so it never became standard.

USA in 1.06 really pushed people away.

But why? Didn't 1.06 fix USA being relegated to a Vee+Ambu spam faction, with Paladins and even the Magneto-car being useful?

People still use Vees, as no alternative was added, tanks still being too slow and expensive to use early on.

Matchups feel more unique, but any USA vs Stealth is saddening. You just can't stop a guy with good tech micro; He'll take you to the late game if you're strong, but that's the end of it.

That's sad to hear. But isn't balance at least better than in 1.04? I remember USAf being horribly OP (King Raptor) with GLA Stealth as a close follow-up.

Also vChina being so far at the bottom sad.gif

It is slightly more balanced than ZH because certain things have been nerfed, but the under-used units from 1.04 get no more time in the sun than they used to, and people stick mostly to the usual strategies.

Vanilla China would be a lot stronger had they not nerfed Black Napalm MiGs reload time and made them $1,400 instead of $1,200.

I believe it is just as enjoyable to play as 1.04, but you can't find a player base to spam with due to it being an unofficial patch.
