Turtle singleplayer skirmishes with a hot cup of coffee/tea and your favorite podcast in the background are as cozy as winter vidya gets.

It is a bit slow. You can speed it up in options I believe but it's not likely to ever be fast paced unless you specifically play a map with short warp lanes. That's when shit gets tense. I prefer the longer games myself.

Guess what, SupCom2 tried to do the same. Same with End of Nations. All failed.
To appeal/lure more people into the RTS world, you have to make it more casual and easier. There is a reason DoW2 and lots of other RTS/RTT only attract a certain group of hardcore people. They don't bring in allot of money, but they do last. Unlike SC2 which lured lots of people but is pretty much dead now.

How was it? Having several spheroid pain in the ass maps isn't anything better than one enormous 'flat' map akin to SupCom. Even then, scale isn't the deciding factor in a good RTS.

I wanted to love this game but they fucked it up by giving it unit caps.

Also I remember one mission, where you had to use the alien invaders troops to kill that traitor with the claws - you started in the bottom left and they had a base in the middle. Thing was, the hero unit you had could recycle stuff to charge up his super cannon which could shoot fireballs anywhere on the map, so you could just artillery out the bad guy and auto win, without attacking the base.

Nope, doesn't play like AoE2. Altough everything is similiar, it's kinda different. Just give it a try. It's not a bad game like supcom2.

nigger you what

Carryalls were standard units in Tiberian Sun. And also the only way to get the Mammoth MK2 anywhere on the map without it taking a fucking age, you just had to watch out for anti-air.

I think you needed to build a repair center for carryalls to be available. But they were definitely in the vanilla game.

Of course playing on multiple PLANETS with their own moons and sun is better than playing on some patch of land, the map size is or will be supposed to scale with processing power so you can hypothetically play on a earth-sized planet.
>Even then, scale isn't the deciding factor in a good RTS.
Of course scale isn't THE factor, but it's an important factor. Improvements of either scale or detail is vitally important, and since improved detail usually lands you in some sort of tactics game scale would be the way to go with RTS games. Like, there's a reason why the AoE 2 remake lets you have like 1000 population, cause bigger scale is more impressive, on top of being more complex. Aesthetics and mechanics pushed to new heights. A game like starcraft 2 where your game-ending army is some sort of amorphous blob covering maybe 1/4 of the screen when packed together is lame compared to several 500 meter tall robots surrounded by a mass of thousands of smaller bots.

What RTS game has a nice city building aspect like Age of Mythology? I don't want a pure city building game though
>>
A long ass while ago I played the demo of a RTS set in feudal Japan. It had no fantasy elements. Units looked small next to the buildings, nice proportions. Gameplay was similar to Age of Empires. Horses were stand alone units, you had to select a human unit and mount it. Resources included timber and rice.

I obviously don't remember the name, because it's a good game I played during my childhood and the gods makes us forget those things just so we can become frustrated adults.

If anyone could tell me the name of that RTS, I'd be forever grateful.

black and white 2 is meh
Dungeon keeper 2 has good gameplay but got boring pretty quick. Also combat is stupid, almost every unit is auto control, just drop fuckers over enemy troops then watch

TS runs like shit on everybodies machines. The engine was half-complete and was incredibly poorly optimized. They fixed -some- of that by Red Alert 2, but only so much that it ran without slowdown on then-modern hardware - but that, too, choked down if you started amassing hundreds of units.

They should make a new RTS where you have teammates in which some gather the resources and handle the base building aspects and tech while the other handles the combat. Would be fun as fuck planning for optimum output. Would be fun going through campaign like that with a bro.

I used to want something like computer AI in Starcraft to be controlled by someone that handled resource gathering while I went and wrecked shit based on the units provided me by my teammate. Multiplayer versing would be fun as fuck and would add a new layer of strategy requiring cooperation to function as a well-managed machine of death.

no; carryalls were different from the orca transport. Carryalls looked like a goddamned flying caterpillar. The orca transport, shown below the mammoth mk II was not availible in the vanilla game. The buildings next to th e engineer and the orca transport also appear different than what's actually in the game. The top one looks like the uplink center and the bottom one I don't remember what it is, but it looks like those tiles were replaced for the actual game.

Usually nazies were either chaotic evil or lawful evil.
Ruskies in CoH2 are not even on lawful-chaotic/good-evil chart.
They are more on a repulsive/disgusting/fucking monsters and everything that is bad with humanity, kind of chart.
Shitty russian accent breaks the mood for me as well.
Constant highlighting that ruskies hates their own kind, when sending soldiers straight at MG you can hear orders, go comrades, they cant kill all of us, or something in this vein.

I am not particularly interested in historical aspect so I could swallow some discrepancies.
I could do this if ruskies were shown nazie kind of evil, cold and soulless murder machine, too bad they are really despicable in CoH2.

While I can get behind historic aspect of the game, I have no desire to play as scum of humanity, I just feel repulsed, I much more prefer heroic aspect of both armies first CoH had.

Mobas are a subgenre of RTS. The major difference is between the players of mobas and old school RTS.

For mobas people don't have a problem with competition, being attentive, strategizing and coordinating with team members.

The "true" RTS players seem to be playing RTS like city building sims like they need a single player safe space because they have difficulties socializing, dealing with pressure, and staying focused

There's this one Ukranian mission where you start with a squad of riflemen, and as you spawn there's already a group of Turkish pikemen marching toward you, you can walk backwards for a little bit to find some more riflemen for your cause, but really how are you supposed to know that.

That game was terrible. It was challenging to NOT win accidentally through a culture victory or whatever. Some of the challenges were just stupid and not worth trying to complete. The god powers made you beyond unstoppable - and don't even get me started on the way your opponent's giant animals kept coming back to life with more and more health. Nothing could beat them except your god hand bashing them with a giant rock over and over.

The enemy monsters were so tough that they invalidated any cause to build a wall. Yeah, they kept out small skirmishing parties, but so does a giant fireball simply dropped on top of them.

Also, army management was damned terrible. Lost some men in your platoon of 100? Well now you've got to look for men. Specifically men to replace those guys, and DON'T drop women down there or they'll become breeders - and women breeders were useless because they spend all their time being pregnant and could only produce one child at a time. Once you've got a woman breeder standing near your army, anyone else you drop near the army also becomes a breeder because, "Why the fuck not".

Don't take a big hit to your army, mind, or else you'll have to scoop up your entire town to find enough people who are male and of reasonable age to be in the military, because there was no automated function to make that happen.

I can't remember the title of a game. It was a fantasy setting and you'd build up a town and send heroes out to slay wolves or monsters by placing a flag with reward gold. Heroes would go there, slay beasts, reap rewards and come back and spend gold in your town.

In fact, the only time I ever bothered with military victories was using the volcano wonder, and only because the volcano wonder was a combination of bugged and amusing. If you stacked volcano wonders on top of themselves, the ground wouldn't return to normal afterward, so you could use it to make giant, ridiculous, steep mountains that were hard to build on. After you'd scorched all that existed of another race, you took over their city with military. That's if they weren't instantly persuaded to join your side just because you built the volcano wonder in the first place.

You couldn't even refuse to let the enemy immigrate through your borders. God could not set up a proper immigration policy.

russians are fucked in the head

i just watched a webm last night where its a group of russian chicks going into a bathroom and one of their friends has just taken a sloppy shit and then two of the girls go into the stall and pick off a piece of the shit and eat it all nonchalantly.

id post the webm but cuckchan wont let me post webms with sound.

Most of that shit is expected improvement in terms of control. Limitations in the name of 'skill' and making shit more tedious are bad.

The balance on Zero Hour was really terrible. Aurora Alphas were just broken, but without them the Super Weapon general had nothing going for her. Except her EMP turrets, which were also broken given the ridiculous efficiency of Aurora Alphas. They ensured nothing small would get in, big groups would be horribly bombed, and key targets would also be bombed. Pathfinders kept out terrorists or guys trying to plant bombs.

It was such a wonkily designed game. In a team game, the Super Weapon general would win everything single-handedly, but 1v1 the general was too weak to survive until mid game.

And then, oh god. There's stealth general. EVERYTHING IS INVISIBLE.

>>275658581
I just wish there was a moba where you could choose to be an RTS squad of guys instead of one hero (I know shit like engineers are 2 guys, etc).

like, you could be the guy directly controlling creeps, building mini-towers, etc

I think there was one being developed, but it might be dead now
>>
>>275658952
I'm pretty sure that's basically what Dawn of War 2 was. There was no base management, but instead of creeps pushing the lanes, you just had to build more dudes.

I thought it was really dull, though.
>>
has anyone tried Reprisal?
>>
>>275622159
By your own judgement, the only difference between MOBAs and RTS games is that MOBAs don't require good multitasking skills either.

People like to think that MOBAs require a lot of strategy and lateral thinking, but they don't. It's just an hour long competition between which of two faggots can accumulate enough gold to win the game and take all the credit whilst eight people just roam around the map, attack eachother and complain loudly on teamspeak.

>>275643462
I don't know if you're still here, but in legacy of the void they're actually implementing something like what you're talking about into matchmaking. you it's a 2v2 but plays like a 1v1 with you and a partner sharing a base, units, and resources. Or if you think you're hot shit you can go solo against two people.

I meant really in the MOBA game though.

Like everyone else would be bumming around as a single hero, and you could just build your own little encampment and send out troops.

it's like a populous 1/2 remake. There's a free flash version knocking around, but there's also a more elaborate pay version. Haven't bought the pay version myself but the flash version had the fun stuff like swamps and volcano spells

You will never know the horrors of RTS until you play Talvisota: Icy Hell

Play as the Finns and your ass will be overwhelmed by the Soviets so bad that your men run out of ammunition. You never have enough armor or planes as well.

Play as the Soviets and the Finns come out of nowhere and plant landmine fields.
