A special thanks to JohnWE for taking care of the Top Five last week. This week has been chopped full of Red Alert 3 goodness, as we are all eagerly awaiting its release. First up, we have the Kossar's Helm offer. Why is this number 1? I find it funny that EA is offering this to make more money, especially because the Helm doesn't give any stat bonus!

Soviets'... I mean Kossar's Helm
#1 Get Kossar's Helm when you purchase Red Alert 3

EAs plan to turn Red Alert 3 players into Warhammer players may work.
Kossar's Helm is a rare helmet you can get only by purchasing Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning and Red Alert 3. The Helm will allow the user to turn into a bear for five minutes each hour. It gives no stat bonus and only serves as a bragging item.

#2 Dev Team Team Tourney Championship Video

The Devopers go head-to-head in this awesome battle.
AI Designer Gavin Simon faces off against Map Designer Jeremy Feasel. They each played a "Best of 3" to determine the winner. This is a very interesting battle with exciting terror drone and engineer moments. Learn from it!

#3 Cut RA3 Units Showcase

All the units that never made it.
Here is a list of all the units that never was put into the game. It is an interview with lead art director Matt Britton and designer Jason Torres. Includes an excerpt of the Chrono Tank, an awesome unit which was never put in.

#4 Vote Ackerman For President

Screw 'em All!
EA's sent out a new newsletter talking about President Ackerman's entry into the election and some other reasons why you should go pre-order Red Alert 3. They've made a video campaign ad, and while it isn't an attack ad, it definitely has some attack in it. It is definitely one of the funniest publicity videos they've thrown out there.

#5 New RA3 Unit Profile: The Rocket Angel

"Do not underestimate us, for we bear the wrath of heaven."
These flying units really pack a punch. Their primary attack is excellent for taking out air units and vehicles. They also have a secondary attack that stops vehicles and buildings from moving and attacking.
