Exclamation ok new here need some advice

this game seems ok but /// no tutorial.
the interface is so different(convoluted) from anything like COH or TOW.
what the heck do i need to hit the ground running ?
so what i got now is a slow a$$ game that seems like it could be a ton better if the darn interface and game controls were somewhat like FROM PLANET EARTH . any sugetions (and please no bitter diatrabe i do want to play this bugger) please help .
cant stand looking at the units standing around like they were waiting for a call .

i dont understand how the interface is that confusing. most things have pictures. like, to throw a grenade, you click the grenade icon.

you basically use the standard RTS controls with the mouse, and then move the camera by moving the mouse to the edge of the screen (cant use wasd or arrows). nd u click nd hold the mouse wheel to rotate nd stuff.

The first Russian Mission IS the Tutorial man. It took me about two hours to get used to them.

It is no where near the standard RTS controls, so don't listen to those BS'ers.

It's a very odd control scheme, but once you get used to it, it's all good. I wish I could play again...patch fucked it up.

The thing i find oddest with the control scheme is you have to use left mouse button to do things & you cant change it,im used to left clicking to attack & the like but right clicking to do an action,or atleast the option to choose both,ohwell.

Starcraft, Warcraft, CnC, WiC, CoH, any of the usual RTS's have no control scheme like this is at all.

Like he said, the left clicking to move instead of right was so weird at first, but I'm used to it now.

How can left click to move & to fire or attack enemy make sense.
