Tiberian Sun YouTube Playlist - Online matches & more

10 March 2014 - 12:10 PM

They're rare, but they're out there. Finding TS vids on YouTube is easy, but finding online matches can take quite some time. Here is a playlist of most (if not all) online TS matches, as well as some weird and interesting ones, that are currently available...



RA2/YR Videos in YouTube Playlists

03 March 2014 - 12:30 PM

Click here to go to the playlists
Remember all those times you searched YouTube for RA2/YR matches played on specific maps but had to go through a whole lot of other totally unrelated vids? Well, search no more. These playlists have been compiled to eliminate those other vids to save you a lot of time that could be spent playing RA2 instead. They include most RA2/YR related videos currently on YouTube and are up to date as of the time of this writing.
(Note: Unfortunately there is currently no A-Z sort function in YouTube, so you will have to go through the list one by one.)

I like to play with myself.
