Subject: The conflict that led up to the events of Red Alert.
Description: This game would focus on the events of World War I leading up to the elimination of Hitler. It would also show how Kane orchestrated the assassination that started the war as well as his rise to become Stalin's advisor/assistant.
The game would also not be without typical C&C flair, making use of the weapons seen in RA and TS (later on).
Positive effect: this game could help to illustrate how Kane began his rise to power as well as lay a foundation for how the Soviet Union grew under communist control to become how we see it at the beginning of Red Alert. This could also create an entirely new storyline with or without Kane (if Germany and it's allies had won the war). Also there could be a lot of foreshadowing to the later games.
Negative effect: this could seen as an elaborate history lesson if not done properly. This might also conflict with people who do not relate RA to TS.
Media: unfortunately I don't have any at this time.

Interesting idea for unifying the storyline.
A WWI period RTS would place an emphasis on base building, defensive fortifications and the massing of troops to breach enemy lines. Huge casualty attrition wars with battlefields being deformed by cratering, barbed wire, machine gun kill zones, artillery and trenches. Tanks would be an end-game tech. Aircraft bi- and tri-planes for scouting and dogfights. Blimps as bombers and floating aircraft carriers. Powerful navies would be a must of course :). This period is untested and I'm sure would make for a new and interesting gameplay experience.

Einsteins time travel and subsequent timefrag of Hitler was independent of any actions of WWI.
Kane's backstory could be interesting. However, it is pretty much agreed on that putting Kane in RA's backstory and trying to link the two universes was a pretty stupid idea in retrospect. Plus, frankly I'm tired of seeing Mr.K as the sole focus of the story YET AGAIN. Give Kucan some time to conquer the real world, goddammit!
Vote Kucan for world president and fifth Beatle!

I actualy like this idea, who said it had to be 100% historical

Read his post properly. This isn't about RA's backstory nor Einsteins Hitler assassination but about laying the foundation for those events. Kane could have easily manipulated those nations into WWI so that the communists could achieve a foothold in the chaos.
The stupidity started with RA2. Everything made sense until TS.

Yes. That Serb organization causes the outbreak of WWI. Hence there is a NOD story to be told there, duh... :p

I could see a prologue scene where Kane is coaching a young Gavrilo Princep on what to do. The first mission would be leading him through the streets finding the car with Archduke Ferdinand.
C&C is the reason I got my degree in History, lol!

Any sequence, text or something where Hitler is showed or even mentioned would lead to HUGE problems in Germany... The game wouldn't get through the USK.

My idea for a final scene would be einstein prepping the chronosphere thus ending right where the intro scene for RA comes in. We'll keep the Germans happy.

It might also end up being a waste of time since such a game would be limited in the technology of the time.
Not to mention ATM people either want a Tiberium or Generals game.
