God eller ond, [[GDI]] eller [[NOD]], vad är egentligen skillnaden förutom det kosmetiska? Det försöker en grupp speldesignerns från #Electronic Arts redan ut i en utvecklardagbok på GameSpot.
Most GDI players prefer solid head-on tactics that overwhelm the enemy. Very often GDI players will build a strong economy supporting a well-defended base. Offensive forays include massive armor forces and tank rushes that can smash anything in their path, with orca scout aircraft deployed to take out choice targets. The need for flanking and retreating is somewhat diminished by the heavy armor of the vehicles, but this comes at the cost of speed. Who has time to worry about that stuff anyway? Let the Nod raider buggies do donuts in the desert while GDI tanks roll directly into their base!
