Default RTS Xfire friends

I've been barging my way into the RTS genre of games as of late; and unfortunately, I don't have any friends on my Xfire list who play them, never mind regularly.

Due to attention, budget, and time constraints I'm focusing on only 3 RTS games (as there are a rather large pool of good ones). Namely Command and Conquer: Red Alert 3, Command and Conquer: Generals Zero Hour, and Starcraft Brood War.

If you play any of those and have Xfire, add me. My name is gruntsworthy.

If you don't have xfire, WHAT THE HECK IS WRONG WITH YOU, haha.

I certainly enjoy RTS's and own quite a few C&C games, I do not own RA3 and don't have the expansion to Generals. I won Sc and brood war but haven't touched them in ages.

I find it invaluable gaming with a clan, join server, join vent/TS is what I most use. Plus it now incorporates msn messenger now.

Yeah, xfire has steadily been growing and using new features. It's still the best gamer messenger out there.
