To be honest I think Awakening of the Rebellion mod may be far more fun to play considering it actually is pretty good provided you don't play against the assine cheating AI I don't mind making an AI difficult but when they get dozens of free ships per minute it does kind of suck the fun out of things

they're slow, shitty blobfests. it's kinda hard to explain why they suck but i think it has a lot to do with the fact that the space portion of the game is really well thought out and fun, and the ground battles are barely tolerable in comparison and simply require more/better units vs actual strategy

If you're playing Empire, you just need to spam ground units and anti-air for the inevitable large force of Speeders the rebels always have. It's the same battle every time, and it's dull as fuck.

f34370 No.13365217



I know what that's from. I can't think of the name off the top of my head, but I do know it. That is the most vapid, unfun, boring shitfest of an MMO I have ever played in my entire life. There is no doubt in my mind that every person who plays that is a low-functioning autist. I'd rather stick my dick in a blender then even download that garbage back onto my computer ever again. Fuck I cannot put into words how shit of a "game" that is. Kill yourself for taking a screencap of it, too.

On another note, if Empire at War does actually have multiplayer again anyone wanna schedule a match or something? Also if we're actually going to I recommend the Republic at War mod.

Grounds Battles would have been better if they managed to get it to work where you could have Space and Land Battles on at the same time. And the ground maps were big enough to accommodate Star Destroyers which at one point could take part in Ground Battles as a unit but it just made Empire insanely OP

The AI, at least in galactic conquest, also routinely plays in the most obnoxious manner possible with stuff like artillery unit spam or making the entire garrison on a planet snowspeeders and then not engaging you with them. Sometimes it would feel like you're playing against someone online trying to fuck with you by wasting your time.

I actually did that with a Squadron of TIE Defenders in a space battle funny enough when playing online Galactic Conquest. I actually won the battle just by hit and running everything till nothing but his capital ships were left at which point he retreated.

Advent. I prefer their capital ships, and that wormhole star-linking portal thing is a god-send on large maps. I also prefer their star-to-star bombardment weapon. The TEC's sucks ass, you'd have to build multiple to actually take out a single shitty planet. The Vasari's are decent, but only if they shoot it in a culture-contested area. Advent one is amazing, it's a shock immediate-attack weapon that works well with the aggressive playstyle you should play them with. The Advent tech trees are a bit worse than the TEC's, granted, but no where near the shittyness of the Vasari. Also, Advent starbases can move, and, although they cost more to upgrade fully the level you can take each type of upgrade to is much deeper, leading to being able to specialize starbases much better.

For single player it's probably best to start with the original. The expansion campaign sort of throws you in at the deep end and assumes you can handle yourself whereas the vanilla campaign gradually introduces things much like your usual RTS single player campaign.

That said, there's some rather significant balance changes between SupCom and FA (and even between singleplayer FA and multiplayer FA) so don't expect to learn anything transferable to multiplayer about build orders and such.

Everything is hilariously expensive in TS. A simple infantry squad of like 10 riflemen and 4 grenadiers is something around 2100-2300 credits, meaning around two harvesting trips regardless if green or blue tiberium. It doesn't help that they're also slow as fuck when moving and unloading the tiberium into your refineries so to keep an active economy you have to spend a ridiculeous amount of resources into getting 3-4 refineries online as soon as possible.

it's bad for afew reasons but it is a fun game even then, the balance being off the charts is the top reason why it's not a good rts. introducing unit cap into C&C and "abilities" that aren't deniable outside of destroying the CC was cancer. the fact that the meta was stale the moment it came out really spoke for its self.

Not RTS, strictly speaking, but the Total War series has some awesome real time battles mixed with a turn-based strategic map. Only the earlier ones are really great though. Specifically Rome 1, Medieval 1 & 2, and Shogun 1 (though you might skip it if you're a fag and can't stomach older graphics). Shogun 2 is also fun but not of the same caliber as previous titles with the possible exception of the Fall of the Samurai DLC which has some pretty good gunpowder warfare going on. Total Warhammer gets an honorable mention for being pretty decent in spite of being made by modern devs.

Avoid Rome 2 like the plague. Dip your feet into Empire Total War if you dare (The Napoleon expansion is kind of nice though). I haven't played Attila but I hear it's somewhat better than Rome 2.

But yeah, start with Medieval 2 and Rome 1. Those two also have the best mods.

Played for a bit. It's pretty good. No major problems till I hit the shielded enemies. Those small vessels don't pose a problem but they repair their shields so god damn fast.

When it was just the Angelwing verses those I had some trouble but after I've gotten a few ships, set two to break shields and wait basically. Convoy mission was a nightmare because you have one support against 6 of those plus a carrier. Got really lucky basically.

It's been a while, but from what I recall the undead make more use of small groups of elite units instead of spamming as you would expect. Liches can raise the dead for a time, so if there are enough casualties in a battle your liches can create reinforcements all by themselves. Doom knights are absurdly tough, but slow. The ghost dudes (shadows?) are a good source of elemental damage early on, and since they drain XP can become absurdly powerful if you're lucky or if you babysit them.

If you have a necromancer hero (and you should) then spamming is still a viable option once your mana regen goes up to a respectable level with research (or raw stats). Necromancers can also summon zombies to work in the mines (they don't despawn once inside) which is a damn good economic boost early on. Death Knights are cool as well and can learn necromancy later on but aren't as strong magically since they don't learn arcane magic. Stick to the necromancer if you really want to fuck shit up.

Most undead units are weak to crushing but resistant to piercing damage, with the exception of higher tier units like doom knights and vampires. This makes you vulnerable to stuff like catapults. In particular dark dwarves will fuck you up with their golems. I don't remember how I dealt with them, probably spam skeletons or towers since they deal lightning damage. I think some golems were weak to lightning.

Have fun, anon! It's a nice game. Kind of a shame devs don't do good RTS with persistent heroes anymore.

>combat rather chaotic

Get used to it

Native factions dont really benefit from formations so their morale is just all over the place when you get a good musket volley in or flank them with your cav

Also taking any larger building is a bitch without cannons

Any of you guys try the Empire at War Remake Mod? Its pretty good though balance is a little funky lasers should do more damage. Very pretty to

Got back into playing Generals again with some mods. Feel like a few are overrated.

Play Rise of the Reds Mod:

Clearly designed by Autistic Krauts

>Lots of polish and fine tuned content added

>Generally well balanced

<Clearly designed around multiplayer

<No Generals Challenge as Generals removed

<AI cheats and doesn't need resources, difficulty is frustrating instead of hard

<Rather dull

Play Contra Mod:

Clearly designed by Slav's high on cocaine

>Each General feels completely unique

>Changes gameplay significantly

>Lots of fun shit

>AI is significantly improved and challenging without cheating

<Significant balance issues

<Game makes it rather too easy to defend

Should try Shockwave. It's like Generals+ and is a bit more balanced. Contra is pretty fun with friends, even if some are over powered.

Earlier versions of Shockwave were honestly better. More unique units and base armies got a lot more love.

Oh and forgot to mention, ability to actually play the Single Player Campaign using the mod.

I wish the Star Wars mod for Generals got finished. It actually had some good features in it.
