Red Solstice Tournament Results and...!!!

All teams showed an incredible skill, approach and tactics, and the scoring was very close but the time was on TEAM ROCK side!

1st place: TEAM ROCK with 12305 points
2nd place: TEAM STH with 12265 points
3rd place: TEAM TFT with 12135 points
4th place: TEAM Rx with 8420 points..

Short recap:
Team ROCK, almost wiped at start with it's bold move to start the game by capturing the Point Capture, but managed to pull it out and secure the fastest evac by guarding and escorting squishy followers through entire game!

Team S*** Tier Heroes, controlled the flow of the game perfectly, every situation was well thought and and their tactic was executed flawlessly, but due to reviving followers at the dropship they lost those few precious seconds!

Team Failtrain, not executed perfectly, but definitely with most style, using terminator nukes just for showoff because they could, their downfall was being too late for the wave 15 last mission, and they lost too much time!

Team Rx, they were not hardcore veterans, but their game had the soul, it showed how a team can work very well togheter in unpredictable situations, and how things can rise and fall and change on the field. Specially noted for the Vindicator discharge in the middle of the team, and surviving that!

And because everyone showed such great moves and tactics, we're awarding FLUFFY SHOTGUN to EVERY participant of the tournament, including the people that were sitting on the bench as the backup!

And everyone who participated in the tournament will get access to closed alpha of the new thing that will be available next month!

Big thanks and appreciation to the community goes from Ironward!

The Red Solstice tournament update

We are very excited to announce a TRS Weekend on Twitch, your community having grabbed the bull by the horn, ready to compete for the 2016 title. This year's crown will be awarded on Sunday evening by the Ironward development studio, on top of game prizes and in-game rewards.

First of all very important notice:
After careful analysis of practice rounds, we have decided to make a change to the scoring system. Staying in overrun will no longer grant extra points. Instead, every 35 seconds after wave 15, a 50 point penalty will be added.

A few more points and reminders:

- Team leaders must arrive on TeamSpeak on Sunday at 1PM US Eastern, or 5PM GMT.

- If you can sit on the bench throughout Sunday, while your team isn't competing, please let us know. We already have a few volunteers, ready to jump in a game should registered players not show. Thanks to everyone who raised their hand last Sunday on TeamSpeak.

- If you are willing to be on webcam during the stream, please let us know. We hope to get a minimum of 2 team members on the Skype Video Call, at the time their team plays. No microphone is necessary, and all you're expected to do is play the game.

- All events between Saturday and Sunday will be televised on Twitch.tv/opnoobsonline. Please bookmark the webpage at your earliest convenience.

We look forward to seeing you on Twitch, and more importantly, on TeamSpeak!

Good luck, happy practice time, and until Saturday!

“The Red Solstice is evocative, deeply engaging action that lives primarily in its diversity of tactics.”
81/100 – http://www.4players.de/4players.php/dispbericht/PC-CDROM/Test/29007/81273/0/The_Red_Solstice.html

“What do you get when you take the likes of Dead Space and Starcraft and throw them in a blender? A bloody cascade that is The Red Solstice.”
85/100 – HookedGamers

“Players looking for a challenge will be right at home, and anyone who wants to experiment with different strategies will find a wealth of variety here. They manage to succeed in delivering an atmospheric tactical strategy game where friends become allies and allies become monster food.”

Con 240 horas (Y subiendo) casi me siento obligado a escribir un análisis de este juego, el cual me ha enamorado desde un primer momento. Lo compré hace ya un tiempo estando en una fase temprana, fueron los 7-8 euros mejor invertidos.
El juego te mete de lleno en una colonia espacial infestada de todo tipo de criaturas, por lo que los tiros y la sangre son un seguro, además, con su sistema de niveles y desbloqueos hará mucho interesante cada misión.
Es un juego realmente complicado por lo que la cooperación es totalmente necesaria con hasta 8 jugadores los cuales podrán elegir entre diferentes clases, desde el clásico francotirador o médico hasta novedades interesantes como el ''Fuego del Infierno'', una enorme armadura cuyo principal factor es el fuego.

El juego también cuenta con una campaña muy completa en la que cada nivel esconde un gran número de secretos y desbloqueables para tus marines, además te ayudará a conocer un poco más la historia que se desarrolla a lo largo del multijugador.

En conclusión, es un fantástico juego de cooperación que no le falta acción ni situaciones que te pondrán en más de un aprieto ¡Totalmente recomendado por supuesto!

The Red Solstice es un cúmulo de clichés.

La humanidad ahora vive en Marte, ya que tuvo que huir de La Tierra. Las incesantes tormentas que azotan el planeta vecino son una de las dificultades con las que tienen que lidiar hasta que el proceso de terraformación termine. La última de estas tormentas, llamada el Solsticio Rojo, hizo perder las comunicaciones con la capital de Marte. El Equipo Alfa debe investigar qué es lo que ha ocurrido....

En esta colonia espacial abandonada nos atacan incesantes oleadas de monstruos beligerantes, resultado de una epidemia. Mientras tratamos de asimilar el índice de tópicos por bit cuadrado toca hacerse con los controles y el sistema de juego, de nuevo una mezcla de géneros que intenta abarcar mucho y se queda corto a la hora de definirse.

Controlamos un escuadrón como unidad, aunque podemos dividir nuestras fuerzas para tomar posiciones en el terreno, avanzar con cuidado y acabar con oleadas de adversarios antes de continuar nuestro camino. El éxito en los combates es una mezcla entre saber posicionarte en el terreno y conocer cuáles son tus objetivos (el juego no está traducido, otro punto menos).

Los enemigos salen de forma masiva de madrigueras que comunican con el subsuelo. Podemos acercarnos con unas minas especiales, detonarlas y cegarlas para evitar la salida de más enemigos. Ni siquiera la necesidad de buscar por el amplio escenario las minas supone un entretenimiento, ya que la monotonía de los escenarios no aportan variedad a las situaciones que afrontamos. Tan poco la activación de torretas defensivas ayuda a nuestra estrategia, ya que una simple oleada de ansiosos enemigos es capaz de dejarla de fuera de juego.

El desarrollo de los miembros del escuadrón es igualmente confuso. Sigue unos patrones de RPG, con experiencia ganada y puntos de habilidad, pero tampoco deja mucho lugar a la variedad y es extremadamente vago con sus explicaciones, por lo que los primeros pasos son más que balbuceantes y tenemos la sensación de ir un poco al tuntún y de no estar aprendiendo absolutamente nada.

El desarrollo de los niveles es siempre igual, llegar a un determinado punto de la ciudad, explotar obstáculos que interrumpen el paso sin olvidarnos de los objetivos secundarios, a fin de no quedarnos secos de vida o de munición.

Llegamos al modo multijugador, lo más interesante del juego, un cooperativo donde enfrentarnos a retos parecidos a los de la campaña, pero con otros jugadores, llevando solo a un marine cada uno, pudiendo enfocar la estrategia con más rapidez y efectividad.

Pero en última instancia, todo en este juego es fácilmente olvidable. Le falta fuerza en todos los apartados que se nos puedan imaginar.

I feel bad writing this review, because even with a thumbs up, I feel like I'll be cutting the game off at the knees. But better you know the truth, I guess.

First off, the game is based on a WC3 custom map called Night of the Dead. You are space marines prancing around a Mars colony full of zombies. You select a suit (read: class), a primary weapon, a secondary weapon, 4 suit components (read: skill...not trees. Paths, maybe? 5 sequential, mostly passive abilities), up to 3 powerups (which add some bonuses at the cost of other penalties), and you go off to try and survive a ~1 hour long match. You find items and accomplish objectives which will strengthen your team, while endless waves of zombies try to murder you to death. The customization isn't that deep, but you'll find plenty to tinker with if you're the fiddy sort. I enjoy it greatly.

Singleplayer exists, but it's not the focus. You control 4 marines and run around doing the same kind of stuff. It's fun. Probably not full price fun, but fun nonetheless.

Multiplayer is the real heart of the game. In order to stand any chance, each player must possess basic tactical acumen and practice it for the entirety of the hour. Further, you have to possess some expertise in your class and use the right abilities at the right times, and understand the flow and structure of the game. Put simply, you are going to lose. You're going to lose a lot. It's a very hard game. Some vets will come and say "oh, no, it's not hard, just git gud". Well, fair enough, but the game has a very steep learning curve. It's simple to play, very difficult to master. That's a good thing, I think. But still, expect to lose a crap ton.

There is a meta-progression, where you increase in rank (which unlocks stuff, and gives some very minor bonuses) and suit rank (gives very minor bonuses to a particular class when you play it), and medals (also small, but welcome bonuses to individual suits). It starts off fast, but becomes extraordinarily grindy to max. But that's OKAY. When I say very minor bonuses, I mean it. The game is much like Left 4 Dead, or Vermintide in that the game is almost entirely about good teamwork, and somewhat about individual skill, and very little about raw stats or xp. About 70% of winning is teamwork, 20% is individual competence, 9% is having enough xp to play the classes you need, and 1% is xp-rewarded stat bonuses. On top of all that, you can prestige (yes, lose one full 0 to max xp amount) in order to get even more tiny bonuses. That said, unless you're a total no-lifer, don't expect to max anything here.

Now let's talk about the community. In order to accomplish anything, you will need to bring friends or make friends. I was able to take my little gaming collective of 3 into the game and we died a bunch, but we were able to improve considerably and also not hate or ruin the game for each other. That's pretty ideal. If you can't bring your own friends, you'll probably need to find a few veterans on the forums. The community is incredibly small, and if you just join a public game, you will get 5 minutes in, and then die, and everyone else will die, and everyone will swear a lot and blame each other. You will swear that nobody else in the world but you knows how to play the game better than a chimpanzee with a congenital learning disability. You will rage that it will take you 9650 games to reach the next rank if you keep dying on wave 2. You will go out into the darkness, and there will be a great wailing and gnashing of teeth. Sometimes, you'll sit in the lobby and there won't be enough people to form one lousy game.

Yeah. You need to either bring your own community to this game, or else ingratiate yourself to the crusty old veterans who've solved this puzzle ages ago.

But overall, I recommend this game as everything about it is a labor of love. They adapted Night of the Dead from Warcraft 3 to bring the game to its fullest potential, to introduce it to new people, many of whom don't even own Warcraft 3. It's certainly not for the money, given the sad state of the community. And the players work on it out of passion too. I see more and higher quality guides for Red Solstice than I see for most AA games these days. The people who make and play this game obviously care about it a lot. There is some talk about how to strengthen the community, but the fact of the matter is, in my opinion, you just can't. It's a niche game, it's a difficult game, it has virtually no marketing, and the story is the narrative version of a toupee. 99% of gamers would take one look at it and turn right around. Red Solstice is a hidden co-op gem, on the same level as AI War. It's a very rare taste. It'll never be very popular, and that's fine, because it doesn't need to be. It's just fun. I like it a lot.

One last note: expect to do a lot of research. Many of the deeper mechanics are buried within documentation that exists only on the forum, or one guy's steam guide, and some haven't been written down at all.

this game is like society under a microscope.. put up to 8 space marines together and see whether they can work together to diffuse a very difficult situation, with various guns, explosives and energy based projectiles :3

small but strong community,
respect your superior officers..
takes a long time to reach the top ranks,
so they may know better ways for you to survive
and contribute towards a successful endeavour through mars :)

Great game marred by a terrible comunity, recent tournament was a total scam. Winners got 2nd place because they weren't part of the Wrecker/Syrus/SgtKeller/Stylo circlejerk. Giveaways during the event were a scam because winners weren't part of the aforementioned circlejerk. If this is how you promote your game, I can only give a negative review. Eat a bag of ♥♥♥♥♥.
