Dark Reign: The Future of War!
Never heard of it? It was a big deal in Australia, New Zealand and Germany back in 1997. There was even an expansion that came out a year after initial release. Published by Activision and Developed by Auran in the back of a fish & chip shop in Brisbane Australia it's among the most oft-overlooked entries into our beloved genre.
And it's good, really good. And people still play it! So I'm posting here to let ya'll know the multiplayer community for this hidden-gem of an RTS is in full swing - there has even been a community patched released in 2019. The first in over a decade!
Fully Windows 10 compatible, working online multiplayer and a fully featured single-player campaign. Dark Reign has everything you would want from a retro RTS made contemporary.

Feel free to comment below any other overlooked RTS games from the 1990's era that still have a thriving multiplayer community. A few that you may already be familiar with; CNCnet, Populous: Reincarnation and NetstormHQ. These communities are really worth checking out and are just like War2.Ru
There's even a community trailer; Dark Reign Community Trailer - YouTube
Hope you see you on the battlefield soon
