Goodbye C&C BCPT

As you may have heard, the Command and Conquer (C&C) team is being (perhaps even has been) destroyed by EA now that C&C4 is out the door. To go with it, apparently, is the team that made their monthly netshow, C&C Battlecast Primetime, which was both a giant promotion for upcoming patches and games, community feedback and, my favorite part, commentated replays of bad-ass C&C3 and Red Alert 3 matches.

To this end, C&C BCPT is gone, apparently unable to complete a full final episode, being forced instead to just release their monthly bad-ass replays, aka “The battlecast ten.” This time they took what they felt were the best matches of C&C Generals through Red Alert 3, and personally I feel watching this video represents the end of an era. Not just the end of BCPT, but the end of C&C at EA. As a fan of franchise (I was gonna write “Stalwart” but we all know whose RTS’s units adorn this website and it ain’t Kane’s) I am sad to see this go. Ending BCPT is just one of the many bad calls EA has made with the C&C games since they gained the license. I guess now we can hope that someday they will sell the license to someone who will do it right, or find a team that can, and not ruin it in the long run.

Anywho, here’s the video, since they posted it on YouTube, I figured better to share it this way.
