If you have read my MY RA2 PLAYER GUIDE you may know what to expect here. Well this YR-equivalent will hope to address even more than my previous topic to help players to gain experience and become far superior players in the world of C&C:YR.

Included in this guide you will find: (scroll down to find the large bold heading corresponding to what you are looking for)

1-Basic Hotkeys and the ideal way to combine and them to improve yourself
2-Best way to scout out the battlefield
3-Basic Builds for both Allies, Soviets, and Yuri on Red alert 2:Yuri's Revenge
4-Rushes for all factions
5-In-depth detail about the Allied faction (Soviet faction is more known so is left out, but this can be typed up too if anyone requests it. Also a separate Yuri-faction
document will be posted soon for those who wish to learn the Yuri side)
6-A list of the QM (QuickMatch) maps you will experience on Red alert 2:Yuri's Revenge
7-Extras

1-Basic Hotkeys and the ideal way to combine and them to improve yourself
HOTKEYS
Q - Main Building tab (Flicks the Tab to the First One)
W - Defense tab (Flicks the Tab to the Second One)
E - Infantry tab (Flicks the Tab to the Third One)
R - Units (Tanks, etc) tab (Flicks the Tab to the Fourth One)
T - Select that/those certain units in your view (click it twice selects all of that/those certain units on the map)
S - Stop (Stops what that current unit was pre-ordered to do)
N - Next unit (Goes to next unit on the map)
X - Scatter (Scatters all units selected in an attempt to not be run over)
D - Deploy (Deploys all select unit if they have a secondary function/units inside)
CTRL + 1-9 - Create Team
1-9 - Select Team
P - Select all units with an "Attack" ability (excludes miners) on the screen (click twice for all units on map)
H - Home (Takes you to your base)
B - Beacon (Places a beacon)
alt + click one of your tanks - to put your tanks in a compact group
Spacebar - Go to last action announced or beacon placed.
CTRL + SHIFT - Attack Move


WAYS TO USE HOTKEYS:
-A faster way to get your MCV deployed at the start of game is to do "N,D", N for "Next Unit" and D for "Deploy"
-A faster way to place building is to push the "Q" or "W" depending on what building you wish to place and click on the battlefield where you want it
-Make Teams of Units (1 team for Rocketeers, 1 for Fodder, etc) to select the group push the number you assigned to it (cntrl + number) adn to flick to the part of the map those units are on, push the "Team Number" twice
-Whenever you wish to view your base, just push "H"
-Whenever you hear "Unit Lost" or "Miner Under Attack" just push Space-Bar and your screen will flick to where that message came from
-Create a Map Bookmark of your opponent's base and push F1-F4 (depends which one you assigned it to) to instantly go to that location
-Use CTRL + SHIFT to move away and have units stop to attack anything in range, good for IFV's




2-Best way to scout out the battlefield

The best way to scout a map is to build a certain number of dogs (which of course differs on map size
Example; 2 Dogs for a small map, 3 for a medium sized map, and 4 for a large map) and uncover as much shroud as possible, but preferably the opponents base so you can observer what they are doing and try to counter them.

Allies also have the option to scout with Rocketeers and Harriers/Black Eagles although you must scout early and with Attack Dogs.

SCOUTING UNDER GAP GENERATORS
If you desperately need to see what is underneath an Allied GAP Generator then there a few things you can do, but generally you must sacrifice a unit (Rocketeer, Amphibious Transport, Flak Trak, IFV, Paradrops or even a Kirov Airship)

This little feat helps Soviet Dreadnaughts to kill buildings and units under Allied GAP.


ANTISCOUTING YOUR BASE
Of course if your opponent can see what you are building then he has the opportunity to counter it right? Well if you manage to kill all the enemies scouting units he may have a harder time countering your Build Orders. (Example; Deploying a few Gi's around your base should kill enemy dogs, or you can leave dogs around your base, or you can even get an early Rocketeer to do the job for you)

YURI SCOUTING
One of Yuri's minor drawbacks is his lack of ability in scouting. Brutes, although invincible to dog attacks, are less agile and consequently much less efficient (and costly) for scouting. It's advisable to build only one for scouting due to the high cost and, if killed, you are left blind. Sometimes, it is a good idea to also send 1 or 2 initiates as a backup incase your brute dies. Furtheremore, on small maps such and Dune Patrol and Blood Feud, it is also possible to send initiates instead, although slower than brutes, they cost less.


3-Basic Builds for both Allies and Soviets on Red alert 2
Build Orders is what the majority of Ra2/YR is about, how good your build order is (and how you control the units of course) usually defines how good you are as a player.
Here is a very basic Build Order for all sides, on maps with Tech Oil Derricks and Gems you will need less Ore Miners because there are far richer resources on the map.

Allies:
Power Plant
Barracks (Scout the map, attempt to catch any Oil Derricks nearby)
Ore Refinery
War Factory (Build 1 Ore Miner from it, then Grizzly Battle Tanks)
Ore Refinery
Ore Refinery (Sell the Ore Refinery furthest away from the Ore being mined)
Airforce Command Centre (Rocketeers and Harriers/Black Egles to attack your enemy)
Ore Refinery
Power Plant
War Factory (To increase build speed)
Battle Lab (Any teched units you want)
Ore Purifier

Soviet:
Tesla Reactor
Barracks (Scout the map, attempt to catch any Oil Derricks nearby)
Ore Refinery
War Factory (Build 1 Ore Miner from it, then Tanks)
Ore Refinery (sell after placement)
Ore Refinery
Radar (Train Desolators if needed)
Tesla Reactor
Ore Refinery
War Factory
Battle Lab (Any teched units you want)
Nuclear Reactor

Yuri:
Bio Reactor
Barracks (Scout the map, attempt to catch any Oil Derricks nearby)
Slave Miner
War Factory (1 or 2 Gattling Tanks to further scout the terrain or for early offence, Slave Miner)
Slave Miner
Psychic Radar (Begin building Magnetrons)
Slave Miner
Battle Lab (Build Masterminds and Floating Discs, Yuri Prime and more Magnetrons)
Bio Reactor (Keep power divided evenly between the two power plants)




4-Rushes for all factions
Rushing is obviously a faster way to end a matchup. Although some consider it 'cheap' and 'unskillful' there is some skill in knowing exactly how to rush and when to attack and how to attack, forcing them to make a crucial mistake. Rushing takes guts and a fair amount of skill in controlling the units you have

Rocky Rush: - Allies against Allies
Depending on the resources on the map you can try with 3 barracks or on a rich resource map even 6 barracks, which means rocketeers will build super fast,
Power Plant
Barracks (Anti Scout Well)
Ore Refinery
Airforce Command Centre (Build lots of Rocketeers!)
Barracks
Barracks
Barracks
Sell MCV if you think it is needed
Attack

Sell MCV Rush: - Soviet against Allies
Tesla Reactor
Barracks (Scout the map)
Ore Refinery
War Factory (Rhino Tanks)
Ore Refinery (Sell this when placed)
Ore Refinery (Sell this when placed)
Sell your MCV
At this point build a few Attack Dogs to use as fodder
Attack

Engi Sell MCV Rush: Soviet against any side
Tesla Reactor
Barracks (Scout the map)
Ore Refinery
War Factory (1 Flak Trak, 1 Terror Drone <1 Engineer from Barracks>, 1 War Miner then Tanks)
Ore Refinery
Send The Flak Trak towards the enemy, make sure the Engineer and Terror Drone are inside, attempt to capture the enemy MCV or War Factory)
Ore Refinery
War Factory
Sell MCV, if you managed to capture an enemy building, sell it for the funds
Attack with all your forces

Attack with your men army



5-In-depth detail about the Allied faction
Allies
Introduction:
Undoubtedly the hardest side in the game to master, Allies are also the weakest side in
Yuri's Revenge. Just like Yuri though, Allies must use their full arsenal to their highest potential
to win a battle. While Allies are more effective against Yuri, especially in a long duration game,
they still find it hard to penetrate Yuri�s mind control fortress. Allies also however are inferior to
Soviets early on in a matchup aswell, with long-game chances dwindelling if Superweapons are
enabled. This will be kept as brief as possible while still informing you all on how to use Allies,
majorily against Soviet (most used side by top players) but will leak into the Yuri side of things
aswell.


Economy:
Aswell as being the worst side in the game, Allies also have the worst economy.
They only rake in half as much as the Soviet counterpart whereas both of them are overshadowed
by Yuri's economy. To try maximise your Allied economy as much as possible try to do the following:


1. Place you�re Ore Refineries as close as possible to the ore/gem patch.

2. Allied Miners have the ability to chrono to Ore Refineries anywhere on the map,
but they also teleport to any refinery on the map, even if it is not the closest one.
To help prevent this as much as possible monitor your miners and manually return
them to your base

3. When teleporting back to your base chrono miners, if in great numbers, will tend to
queue up and waste time which will further weaken your already rather-poor economy.
The best way to prevent this is to keep roughly one ore refinery to every two miners
you have (whereas with Soviets you tend to sell Refineries a lot more)

4. When fully teched Allies have the option of building an Ore Purifier, it is highly
recommended that you purchase this as in the longrun it is highly beneficial for you,
allowing you to buy more tanks for your army.

5. Soviet enemies who have map control early on may attempt to 'split tanks' and pick
off one (or more) of your miners, so to attempt to prevent this by staying alert and thinking fast
to fight off the trouble-potential split.


Spies/Seals in IFV's

Very underated units, both can decide the game if used correctly. Iron Curtain is an Allied Killer and
must be killed at all costs, otherwise your chances of winning decrease rapidly. Along with seals, spies
have there uses aswell, infiltrating an enemy battle lab, radar tower or war factory has wonderful results.
Here is the best way(s) to use these units to take out a Soviet enemy:


1. The main thing Allies have to do if they wish to seal/spy an enemy is to distract them so they can be
successful. Bluffing an attack with your ground forces while dropping paratroopers in the back will keep
him busy so you can slip in the IFV toward the Iron Curtain (for Spy IFV attempt to get a War Factory or
Radar tower first). If you are granted the technology of Veteran (One stripe) tanks get a grizzly-heavy army
as Grizzly are now almost a mirror image of a Rhino Tank and are very powerful.

2. On an Air-based map (such as May Day or Lake Blitzen) Nighthawk choppers can be used to transport
Seals or Spies across the map safely. Remember that the chopper cannot be seen on enemy radar and
if you can distract him long enough you can slip the chopper into the back of his base.



Air Units
Allies have an aggressive side to them consisting of Rocketeers and Harriers/Black Eagles. Rocketeers are
fast and can go anywhere on the map and planes can fly along side them to fight off any enemy Flak Traks nearby.
The following is a list of things you can do with these units:

1. Try to keep Rocketeers active all game which will distract the enemy greatly, attack powerplants whereever possible
and have Harriers or Black Eagles nearby ready to shoot any Flak Traks, when he is low power he will be building
slower than you and it will take him more time to get another Anti-Air unit ready.

2. Similar to above, target a War Factory with your group of Rocketeers (4 should be enough) and have planes following
ready to shoot the weakened building. If you kill the War Factory you should be able to establish a tank advantage
over your enemy.

3. As mentioned above a group of 4 Rocketeers should be enough to kill a building, now if you build more Rocketeers
you can begin to split them into two even groups and fly them around the map. This is going to confuse your enemy and
gives you an advantage over the battlefied as you are less likely to make mistakes if not under pressure.

4. If Korea you have the option of skipping the Battle Lab and making a second Airforce Command Centre.
If you can manage to get 5 Black Eagles no Iron Curtain should be able to survive long enough to harm you.
Other important buildings you can kill with 5 Black Eagles include, the War Factory, Ore Refinery, and Flak Cannons
(3 Black Eagle shots for a Battle Lab)


Chronosphere
There are many ways to use a Chronosphere, but what ones are best?

1. If the enemy has a small army and you have units ready to chrono across the map, try to chrono your tanks onto
the enemies tanks as theres will die and yours will appear unharmed.

2.
Another potential game-winning tactic is to chrono enemy units into the water, this works well against Yuri as you can
potentially chrono a lot of moneys worth of units into the water (4 Masterminds and a few Magnetrons perhaps) which is definately
something you couldn't pass up!

3. Chronoing Prism Tanks into an enemy base is deadly aswell, they can do extensive damage in no time,wiping out important structures
left right and centre.


What tanks to build when?
Many players lose battles because they do not know what units to build when.
I hope to be able to explain to the best of my Allied ability what to do, and when:

1. Against Yuri players do not (i repeat do not mass grizzles), hold the fort with a few GGi IFV's
and attempt to get 1 more Miner than the Yuri player (and then get your Battle Lab up quicker).

2. When teched as Allied against a Yuri player build a handful of Mirages tanks (up to ten) then begin making Prism
Tanks (or GGi iFV if Yuri is making Floating Discs)

3. Mass Prism (lots of them) will destroy every land unit Yuri has (except the Slave Miner, so watch out if Yuri brings
them to battle as 'Prism-Fodder")

4. Tanya in an IFV can be used (if Yuri is distracted by Paratroopers or something else) to drive around the back of the Yuri base and kill
any Slave Miners about (you must be quick!)

5. Against Soviet try to keep many Mirage Tanks about along with a Seal IFV or a Battle Fortress (with a Seal in it to eliminate Desolators)
and Rocketeers overhead aswell trying to cause as much damage as possible.


Robot Tanks
These units have almost no use. They require a building to power them (to stay alive aswell) and are to vulnerable against Tanks.
Here are the only two decent uses for Robot Tanks i could think of:

1.
Don't you just hate it when Soviets attempt to 'Fast tech' for an early Dreadnaught? Well 4-5 Robot Tanks can easily eliminate that threat.

2. On a Navel map Robot Tanks are good for harrassing enemy buildings and provide a good distraction for
other sneak attacks you wish to concuct.
