Short Introduction[edit | edit source]

I am an oldschool gamer and I like the old C&C games, from the time when they were made by Westwood and not the cursed EA (a company very similar to Tiberium - it poisons and destroys anything it touches).

I am talking about Tiberian Dawn, Red Alert, Tiberian Sun, Red Alert 2 and their expansions as well: The Covert Operations, Counterstrike, The Aftermath, Firestorm, and Yuri's Revenge. I have played all of these and I will try to contribute to articles related to them.

I am also a fan of Westwood's Dune games - Dune II: The Building of a Dynasty, Dune 2000, and Emperor: Battle for Dune. In terms of gameplay and UI, they are very similar to the C&C series and perhaps they could be included in this Wiki some day :)

Grammar Nazi[edit | edit source]

Reading this Wiki is a lot more enjoyable when there aren't any silly mistakes in it. The Brotherhood does not tolerate bad spelling & grammar, so please be careful if you value your life!

Here is a guide to some of the more common mistakes these days. If you are in doubt about something, you can use this to check it (and avoid Kane's wrath):


It's and Its[edit | edit source]

  • It's = "it is"
    • Example: "It's time for you to leave."
  • Its = possessive pronoun, meaning "belonging to it"
    • Example: "Look at that mutated tree - we might get poisoned by its spores if we don't leave soon."


There, Their and They're[edit | edit source]

  • There = denotes location, as opposed to "here"
    • Example: "I can see something over there."
  • Their = possessive pronoun, meaning "belonging to them"
    • Example: "The Brotherhood has returned to their old guerrilla warfare ways."
  • They're = "they are"
    • Example: "Look at those damn Shiners. They're up to no good."


We're, Were and Where[edit | edit source]

  • We're = "we are"
    • Example: "We're going to be late if you don't hurry up!"
  • Were = past tense of "are"
    • Example: "You were victorious yesterday."
  • Where = pronoun denoting place/location
    • Example: "Where is our air support?!?"


You're and Your[edit | edit source]

  • You're = "you are"
    • Example: "You're late for the party."
  • Your = possessive pronoun, meaning "belonging to you"
    • Example: "What happened to your friend?"


Who's and Whose[edit | edit source]

  • Who's = "who is"
    • Example: "Who's in charge here?"
  • Whose = denotes possession
    • Example: "Whose gun is this?"


Lose and Loose[edit | edit source]

  • Lose = to cease to be in one's possession or capability
    • Example: "You can lose a lot of money if you agree to this deal!"
  • Loose = free from restraints, unfastened
    • Example: "A wild bear is loose on the streets. Stay at home and lock the doors!"
