Greg Black Interviewed

Our affiliate GameReplays has interviewed the Lead Balance Designer for C&C 3, Greg Black about the upcoming patch. Here's a snippet:
Gamereplays.org: Some of the more general changes you have promised for 1.05 involve making the economy boom less severe, making the tank rush less severe, and getting infantry in the mix. Now that you've had the chance to watch hundreds of replays since then, do you have a better idea of how you're going to go about implementing each of those changes?

Greg Black: Having already completed the balance part of the balance patch, yes I have a pretty good idea about what we’re going to do. So far our internal testing shows a lot more unit mixing and diversity of strategies, even on maps like Tournament Arena. I’ll hold off on citing specific changes for now.

Gamereplays.org: Can you give a firm(-ish) release date for the patch?

Greg Black: We are targeting mid-late May, but you’ll need to get APOC’s firm word on the exact release date. Trust me when I say that I’m as anxious as anyone for this patch to come out. As a matter of fact, I think I’ll go yell at the producers right now.
