Current best RTS?

I know there is probably a thread already, but TA won't search best or RTS because they are too common, therefore I decided there would be not harm made creating a new one.

So, which RTS and why?

Red conquest by John kooistra
it has excellent graphics there are a ton of different strategies and formations u can perform with a couple clicks. The campaign is kinda short but the current version is his first episode out of four. He also said he's going to implement online multiplayer in a coming version.

Red Conquest is definitely the best one. The interface might look a bit weird at the beginning, especially if you played any other RTS game before, but chances are you will instantly understand the interface (some people say they don't understand the interface, others love it I love it xD).
If you want a detailled documentation about the ingame interface, look at my In-Depth tutorial (=> look at my signature).

The next update will probably come out in March, it will contain more campaign missions and another color to fight with (=> new units! Red and blue aren't the same units with just some color differences, both got a similar system, but play completely different... Red is easier for beginners, units can be built fast etc. Blue is for the ones who like to fight with a clever strategy or something like that [=> look at my Signature, Strategy Thread, and Unit Diagram for more information on the units]). The update will also add ONLINE MULTIPLAYER!

John also said that he is thinking about adding a level editor later, but that would be much much later.

Want to read some Red Conquest! reviews? Take a look at the Review list (look at my signature :P)

Red conquest FTW. Too bad C&C and the Settlers sucks bad.

Definitely Red Conquest. Great interface and control scheme for the iPhone and iPod Touch (it was built from the ground up, not a port of a PC game) and a ton of replay value in skrimish. Online multiplayer (and the new episode) is set to come out early March.
