Command and Conquer: Rivals has been out for a while but public launched on Dec 4. I had my doubts but decided to give it a shot as an RTS fan. The games just last a couple minutes with a good amount of micro.

Command and Conquer: Rivals is a one-versus-one competitive multiplayer real-time strategy game. The player can play as Rivals, GDI or Brotherhood of Nod, with each faction offering unique abilities. Players are tasked to control platforms surrounding the missile silo. If the player manages to gain control of more platforms than the enemy for a fixed time, the missile will launch and obliterate the opponent's base.
Had my doubts about it being pay to win but its good to know the devs are at least making an effort. To be honest unlocking all the units feels a bit grindy but some of the top decks out there only use units you unlock pretty early on.
Heres a link from the dev days on it
I'm freakin having a blast! I made an alliance- which are basically 30-person clans where you can hang out/donate cards. Was hoping to get a few TL members to join! Hope its okay i took 'TeamLiquid'
Alliance ID: 9rce0uva (i'm not sure if you actually need this)
Get C&C: Rivals and join 'TeamLiquid' alliance. Its fun, I promise
