Also I'll finally make a start on that non-shit chart later today, I'm thinking we should have one that covers RTS and RTT and a second chart for TBS and TBT (there's too much to get all four subgenres in one chart and not enough to make four satisfying chart before we even get into fringe cases). The only issue then would be how to classify the more hybrid games like Total War, Darkest Hour or Rule the Waves short of just making a third Grand Strategy/Misc chart and grouping them under that.

Lesser known but still great RTS. Check them out if you haven't, but we're in an RTS thread so you've probably heard of them.

>Warlords Battlecry 2/3

RTS with Hero unit. What makes it unique is the sheer volume of stuff. Warlords Battlecry 3 has a dozen races, a dozen domains of magic a mostly open world campaign and just in general the game has so much goodness. It is very rough around the edges, but if you like fun, this game can be a lot of fun. You can play a merchant who pays half price for all their units, an assassin with 25% chance to insta-kill 3 times a second, a mage who summons giant armies etc.

>Battle Realms + Winter of the Wolf

A Japanese flavoured RTS made in the west featuring four distinct factions. Unique to this RTS is its unit production, where peasants spawn over time (increased by the number of houses you build vs how many you already have) which you send into one of three production structures to train into a unit. Send a peasant into a Dojo, they become a Spearman, send a peasant into an Archery range, they become an Archer. But build on the back of that is the ability to train a unit twice. Sending a Spearman into an Archery Range (or Archer into a Dojo) produces a Dragon Warrior. It's a unique system that tickles the brain. Fighting generates a special resource used on upgrades or to recruit late game hero units.

That's without mentioning the campaign, one of the few where choices you make can actually influence the gameplay (mostly in which heroes join your faction). Well at least in the base game. Winter of the Wolf very optional.

>Swarm Assault

An insect RTS game. Take control of bases and order them to produce one of three types of units from that base, then order those units to capture the enemies base. Simple, good fun. Five different base types for a total of 15 different units. Getting it to work might be impossible, but if you get it to work its 100 levels of varying fun and challenge.


Sci-fi comedy RTS that features over the top graphics like guys getting exploded into the air. Largely another base control game but its humour is good, its challenge is mostly fair and it can be a blast watching the soldiers fight.

>Army Men RTS

It's another one of those early 3D RTS games with average pathing and clear influences from Command and Conquer, but it's still an entry worth listing that surprisingly few people know about. It's the Army Men series! Y'know, green plastic soldiers?

>Impossible Creatures

If you haven't actually played this game you are seriously missing out. It's a game about combining animals into super animals to act as your army. Whales with rhino horns. Vultures with scorpion tails. Lobster clawed hyenas. There's also at least one mod that pretty much doubles the number of monsters in it.

Has anyone played Syrian Warfare? Might be RTT more than RTS. Couldn't get into it the first time I tried it, but the second time everything clicked and its heaps of fun. Until the "rescue the pilot" mission which is just tedious. It triggers good goyim and rewards tactical gameplay. You keep your surviving units between missions and they gain veterancy. Supposedly mod tools are coming soon. I want to add Assad in a helicopter dropping chemical barrel bombs on bakery-hospitals full of children.

So some threads ago I was posting about this idea I was toying around with to set notC&C4 during the Napoleonic wars, but with tech that would span from their own age all the way to twenty minutes into the future. Now, assuming that the Japanese faction is dropped for the Aztec one (which I am growing fond of because it would be visually appealing and easy to tell apart, a la huge Yuri head and conscript statues), and assuming that the other two battalions are the Entente and the Britbong Coalition, what kind of units would best fit each? Is there some gimmick not explored in previous titles that you'd rather see more of?

Battlecry one is the only one in that series with a proper single player story campaign so it's worth a look. 2 is a dark crusade conquer the map one territory at a time deal. 3 reuses the map from 2 but has more of a roving adventure vibe with a hacked together story. 3 ended the series with a total of 16 races. Also in spite of being fairly generic it's got some metal as fuck artwork.

You know what was really neat? cnc3 Tibwars having different AI personalities. As one site put it…

Balanced AI - Your normal AI that mixes defense, expanding bases, and assaults equally. Quite challenging and will fight until the bitter end. Medium Base defenses.

Turtle AI - An AI that will focus on fortifying its base and will also expand quickly to fortify those positions as well, while building a massive army in their base. Turtles can be difficult if not taken out quickly, as their assaults are huge and ultimately deadly. Heavy Base defenses.

Rusher AI - This AI will send in low tier units in very early in battle and continue with low tier assaults, eventually sending in tougher high tier units. Rushers tend to use their resources to build quick light assaults to batter your base down to size. Little Base defenses.

Geurilla AI - The adaptable AI, Geurilla AI will send in low tier suicide assaults to figure out your bases units and defenses, and will build accordingly to defeat it. Sometimes in their suicide runs, they'll sneak an Engineer to capture your buildings and use your technology against you. Geurilla AI is the most challenging for Single Play and is a dangerous foe to battle. Medium Base defenses.

Steamroller AI - Steamroller AI will always either send in constant assaults or low and high tier units, or will quickly basebuild up to their superweapon to send in high tier units very early in game. If you don't take this AI out quickly, you'll find yourself in a frantic defense against large amounts of high tier units and getting blasted by their superweapons. Little Base defenses.

that's nothing new

The only real issue with C&C3 is that the feeling was off, I'd say there wasn't enough weight to the units. It actually isn't a bad game when you go back and play it and there's plenty of fun stuff to do. Units just don't have much personality to them and nothing seems to have that oomph to it. Artstyle is another factor but that has been debated to hell and back.


It's basically a mod of MegaGlest. It's gameplay is a bit dated but if you are used to Tiberian Sun or Red Alert 2 you should be in comfortable territory. Think there is a mod that adds a new faction for it as well.

There hasn't been much new it RTS in a looooooong time. I just find it disappointing that more RTS games don't have more varied AI personality options beyond easy, medium, hard and cheating.

Dota and Starcraft, anon.

The idea that every RTS had to be esports also killed the genre, when the RTS games that were seen as esports only got there because they had excellent campaigns and gameplay that people loved to play in the first place, and had a desire to test their skills against each other.

If you don't have a good campaign, you don't have single player appeal (or a decent tutorial, which is what a campaign can also be used for), and if you don't have good gameplay there's no appeal to play the game past the campaign.

Sad but fashionable. Also wtf were the game designers thinking when they made upgrading the avatar require sacrificing other expensive ass units? I mean wtf? You are already wasting time doing micro on other things and now you've both wasted your time and made your expensive unit only marginally more useful and a lot more costly.

The dichotomy between supcom1 and 2 is a good illustration of how that kind of pandering can ruin a game. Literally all they had to do was remake the first game with better graphics and more units and people would have been happy.

Indeed. Most of the mods out there usually scrap it in favor of a pay to upgrade mechanic. It almost could have worked if they had either streamlined the process (like combining buzzers with scrin vehicles) and/or given you more for the sacrifice (like additional HP or dmg).

I largely agree with what you're saying, I've just found that in this digital age it is substantially easier to connect, communicate and share, and esports is an easy way to amass a large crowd to a single sitting.

Everyone gets to see tricks, share tech and try out new metagame strategies and tactics while testing their skills. It educates the less-good players and can help push the boundaries of the game wider.

There's some of it in Tiberian Dawn if I recall though it's more a case of gaining access to units that were meant to be available to a faction but are locked. Also it depends on the game version.

For example Nod had to acquire GDI tech to produce Apaches and SSM's.

If Nod or GDI caps each others factories the following units became crossfaction:

>Medium Tanks

In Multiplayer Nod had APCs, MLRS, and Chinooks for balance reasons. You didn't need to crosscap for them, and Apaches came with the Airpad for Nod and the SSM was unlocked with a comm center and an obelisk.

1e169f No.14482277


>Nod had GDI's MRLS for balance reasons

I never understood that in MP. GDI doesn't get an artillery unit but after they get the Tech3 Advanced Comms which has the Airstrike and Ion Cannon Support Powers and MRLS design. Meanwhile Nod has Flame tanks, Artillery, Stealth Tanks, Obelisk and better infantry by just getting their standard Tech2 Radar and it gets worse once they build an Obelisk because the SSM outranges everything and one-shots MRLS and other artilleries.

Medium tanks suck dick vs swarms of Light Tanks in a cost-efficiency manner and Mammoths aren't worth it even if they only require a Repair Pad to be built, the only advantage GDI had was the fact that they had that ridiculeously powerful engi+APC rush but even Nod gets them that too in MP.

1894e2 No.14482283


Actually I was calling stuff that could be built from a facility that normally shouldn't be.

Nod could call in stuff like Medium Tanks from Airstrips since in early versions of the game Nod actually could build Medium Tanks. GDI could build Light Tanks from the Factory. SSM's were not buildable in PC version Singleplayer but could be built funny enough in the console versions.

Also many units do pack a lot of punch to them. You'd be surprised at how much detail has been put into sound design and animations.

Generic how? They all had their own identity and you could point out each one just by hearing one line. They had specific quotes for being selected, quotes for moving, quotes for attacking when out of range, quotes for attacking when in range, quotes for being selected while in combat, quotes for when they're ordered to retreat, quotes that they themselves say when fighting enemies, quotes for abilities, quotes for dying, and a bunch of other shit. Are you telling me you didn't remember a single one of them?

The by-the-book riflemen?

The coffee addict Pitbull drivers?

The supervillain Black Hand troopers?

The paranoid Stealth Tank drivers?

The pompous as fuck Mammoth Tanks?

The literal priests-turned-field colonel Confessors?

The cocky Juggernauts?

The psychopatic arsonist Flame Tank drivers?

The bad-joker grenadiers?

The deluded tiberium-obsessive Nod harvester drivers?

The creepy Nod Saboteurs?

The arrogant, greedy Avatars?

The GDI Commando in general?

Hell, the GDI Sniper Team is the biggest example of how much work they put into it. It's a unit composed of just 2 dudes, a marksman and a spotter. Each one has his own lines for everything I've mentioned above; the guy with the rifle is cool composed, but starts losing his patience when under attack. If he dies and the spotter is the only one left in the squad, the unit's quotes are entirely replaced with his voice, where he sounds scared and shaken from seeing his friend die in combat. That's 2 units' worth of voice acting for 1 unit, and it's not even that much used.

And let's not even get into the sound design they made for the Scrin units.

People give Tiberium Wars/Kane's Wrath shit solely for the fact that EA published it, despite the fact that EA has published every single C&C game except Tiberian Dawn.

People also seem to forget that C&C 3 had Westwood developers in it, and were also the same dev team who've made Zero Hour, which is why it still turned out so good even with EA's kikery.

The people who made RA2 were originally called Burst Studios. They were bought from Virgin Interactive by EA along with the actual Westwood studios and were renamed into Westwood Pacific before developing the game, while the actual Westwood studio only helped in in some minor parts of development. Then they were both merged together and became EA Pacific, which was then merged with EALA, who, all together, developed C&C 3.


>they gave a personality to everything when in actual should have been fairly monotone and beak

Tiberian Dawn was far from monotone and bleak with its funky music and unit screams, doesn't mean it was bad. It was just that Westwood decided to make Tiberian Sun a bleak game on itself, rather than making the rest of the series bleak from then on. Still, the ones that remained kept the bleak atmosphere around, which you would certainly notice when playing it.

Scarce resources & overwhelming odds with constant barrage of units from the enemy is the tightest shit. Usually not seen too much in official maps but its not uncommon to find some player made stuff which is hell bent on being disgustingly unfair and punishing in this fashion.

>bland and over the top with units that are quirky that ham it up

What's even your point? You're just being so general in these criticisms that they don't actually carry any point.

You call Tib Wars bland while most of Tiberian Sun's maps are fucking brown, and sometimes white, as if it weren't color washed (which is what you usually do when you want a bleak setting and not a colorful carnival of a game).

>I'd argue that supreme commanders sp is rather boring

That's because unless you rush the fuck out of everything the AI gives up and can't do shit to you once you're turtled enough so from there it's just tedious cleanup, add to that the fact that's there's some map with starting situations that are way too hard for their own good and you get a shit difficulty balance that isn't fun to play in any way, and that's forgetting some of the atrocious SC1 SP missions that don't give you proper tech levels for the job the ask of you.

The SCFA campaign AI mod is quite a step up, especially if you also have some sort of modded AI and the campaign mod enabler which for some reason seem to make the campaign AI more intense, it would still need a few things to be truly great like the AI straight up starting to shit out waves of experimentals and T3 Arty / Nuke once the timer goes over 40 min.

I never said either game was bad either but I've seen way too many cunts shit on Tiberium Wars for the silliest of reasons, mostly because it didn't have Westwood's brand on the cover. I personally hold Dawn, Sun and Wars as the holy trilogy of the whole franchise, but I too can see flaws in them. But seriously now Tiberium Wars does have atmosphere, but just because it wasn't Tiberian Sun, doesn't mean it was bad.

TBH Starcraft isn't even popular (in the sense of making money) for MP outside of Korea. EA made a completely boneheaded mistake of trying to beat Blizzard in a market that wasn't even profitable for Blizzard. Even if they managed to make a game every bit as good as SC2 AND somehow market it to SC2 players enough to make half of them switch to C&C3 AND get all the sponsers for teams and shit in, they'd still be losing a shit ton of money.

Thing about two is they softened up some of the units. Where in 1 you could have Gondorian Swordsman go up against Uruks and they do some damage but get killed, if you did that in 2, they'd just lose flat out. It's very much a weapons triangle but throwing in fodder and having decent archers gets you through 8/10 of the times. Don't like that to be honest, if I'm gonna attack move to a target, I want at least some units to survive.

Twenty years from now, people will be still playing Red Alert and Age of Empires via sheer autism alone, while these online-only streamerbait games wither away. Making something good is never for today, but for tomorrow. How many people will be willing to maintain shit like Fortnite or Overwatch? For all we know, the only game that followed these ones' path but will survive for a long time still is TF2.

You misunderstand, the goal of these devs is to make as much money with as little effort as fast as possible. This streamer bait fotm garbage is exactly that. They will sacrifice their chances of making a high quality game for a high profit game and fortnite was just a good example for that. Didn't some sort of UT game get cancelled because of this? Anyway, rts games aren't anywhere near as popular and requires far more effort to make a decent one so I doubt we'll see any major releases any time soon

I see the point you're trying to make, but a) this really isn't much different from previous CNC titles, and b) each faction still has its own niche

<Allies: Support Units (Engie Tent, Engie in Multigunner, Spy, Cryocopter)

<Japanese: Weaker than counterparts but flexible (Tengu = Anti-Infantry OR Anti-Air or Chopper = Anti-Air OR Anti-Armor

If you want to criticize the game, use the pointlessly over-the-top humor and the general cheesy 60s agent movie theme. Or the fact that Uprising takes a massive diarrhea dump on unit balance with Giga Fortresses and Harbingers.

The co-op and alternate utility mechanics were really cool, you can tell the devs had a lot of fun programming the Empire units. It was also really great to see naval warfare being taken into higher consideration, but half of the mechanics fall apart after a few games (YOU NEED ENGINEER?) and they ruined the balance of the game by making certain units that were purposefully useless and gimmicky into multi-purpose shit. In the end they wanted to pander to both the Generals crowd and the Red Alert crowd and they didn't satisfy either. I mean, I like my RTSs fast paced, at least.

<KOYK> pchote if i finish those are we going to add them to openra? http://www.sleipnirstuff.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=83&p=306925#306925
<orabot> Title: Sleipnir's Stuff :: View topic - New civ buildings on the works for openra
<pchote> I don't like the idea of adding new assets to the base game
<KOYK> why is that?
<pchote> there are several
<pchote> first off, it aggrevates what is already an unhappy copyright situation
<pchote> secondly it dilutes the original game
<pchote> and in many cases (i'm not necessarily saying it applies here) the quality is noticably different, meaning that they don't integrate well
<KOYK> copy right with who? you mean EA games?
<KOYK> also there is a desert tile set on ra and a jungle tileset for td so i think we are passed the point of staying true to the original (decoretion wise) from the original game
<Scott`> we have, but making it worse doesnt help
<KOYK> also if you are talking about copyright issues about those asset, i made them so we are ok
<KOYK> ok but in the video scenes of the game, you can clearly see that there are citys involved in the war, so i think this could be an improvement considering that there is already one city building added to the game
<Scott`> the game itself wasnt set in cities though
<KOYK> yes but that dosnt mean they dint want to add that at some point, i mean there is always a time line when you make games
<Scott`> sure, look at ts/ra2
<KOYK> as we can see in red alert 2 for example
<KOYK> yea
<KOYK> to be honest take a look at some user maps that are using the only one city building that exist in ra multiple times so they can make a city like map, the problem is that they end up adding the same building over and over again, so having more buildings is going to be a better solution for them, and i am sure the players will appreciate this, dont you think?
<pchote> players would appreciate many things that are not realistic
<pchote> projects need to define boundaries on what they are willing to include
<KOYK> is not realistic to have city buildings tho?
<pchote> not in the sense of project management, no
<KOYK> so red alert 2 and tiberian sun is unrealistic is that what you are saying?
<pchote> i'm not talking about in-game realism

The future is FEMA fam. :^)


Pretty much this, what really grinds me gear is that he used the "muh copyright" as a excuse for not adding more assets, if it were such a huge deal then C&C overall would have hardly any mods at all. At least OpenRA is gud for modding stuff in it, too bad that making missions is a pain in the butt, because they thought it would be "great" to use lua scripting for that, instead of using bunch of trigger placement and other stuff in the map editor.

Also I just finished doing a medium play through of the Soviet campaign both RA 2 and the expansion of it. It was not too shabby but it was a bit underwhelming since I didn't had to put much thought how to deal with it. I find it weird that the 6th YR soviet mission was more hard since it took me 3 attempts to finish it, I ended it up using only apocalypse tank and cosmonauts to destroy the base. The 7th mission wasn't really much of a challenge since all I did was build up the economy and the defense, go to the left and right side of the map to get rid of the meat grinder and for bonus shekels. Then I sieged the soviet base and rush b to the PSI emitter and from there I launched the attack to Yuri castle, also for some reason there was a lot of unused siege chopper which I put it into use to destroy the left side of the yuri base, to cripple his defense.

If yes, do I play 1 or 2?

Yes and you play 1 or American Conquest which I personally recommend over Cossacks 1

Cossacks 2 is more centered around regimental fighting than basebuilding and high amounts of unit recruitment

You could also play Cossacks 3(D) if you want better graphics and some QoL stuff

I briefly looked at their mods forum, apparently there is 1-2 "Classic" mods that tries to make a 1:1 balance of the original game, how true that is I don't know I haven't checked those yet.

They still get made, but pros don't play them because they prefer the popular competitive ones like SC and AOE, while casuals don't play them because they believe they will get instarushed in a splitsecond by the earlier.


I swear, you'd think that now that we live in the information age and no longer rely on guides or experienced friends, more people would get a hang of the mechanics, strategies and unique skills easier. But in reality people don't want to learn shit now and if they can't get the illusion of gitting gud 30 minutes in, they won't bother with these games in first place.

Shit like this sometimes makes me wonder why we even have >5MB/s of consumer internet.

10c1e9 No.14503208


There's also the fact that to this day it seems nobody's made an RTS where real-time tactical moves can outplay pre-game strategy. Often in the esports scene games are effectively decided within the first few opening moves. It's not as bad in casual play but it's still there. When you compare this to what's actually popular with people in multiplayer, you'll see that the key difference in the popular games is that they allow, and often rely on, the ability of a losing player to reverse their situation without relying on their opponent fucking up. You can try to get a headshot in shooters, you can set up some retarded gank in ASSFAGGOTS, etc. In RTS what can you do if your economy gets fucked by a raid because you rolled the dice wrong in guessing which strat your opponent was going to use? You're at a disadvantage for the entire rest of the game.

Losing isn't fun when you know that there's little to no chance for you to turn it around unless your opponent is literally retarded. Even less so when the winning strategies often rely on the opponent failing to exploit certain weaknesses early, instead of a more rounded approach.

242a29 No.14503315


Well, that mostly just comes on any FFA games. Reversing against an opponent that 3%'d your health on a 1v1 shooter isn't really easy either unless you get a lucky shot or manage to outplay your opponent. And if someone just turtles on the main base with the wrong civ and technologies, instead of spreading across the map like wildfire while building bases and annoyances to slow down the enemy and get more shots for defense, it's honestly their fault.

I don't want the genre to focus on casuals or cater to them, but i don't think having more beginner/midskill rooms would damage RTS either. So that people who missed the whole RTS bandwagon in the 90's/2000's found a way to integrate in, but not without removing or obscuring out the learning/strategy part, of course.

>Reversing against an opponent that 3%'d your health on a 1v1 shooter isn't really easy either

It's easier at all skill levels than any type of reversal in RTS. Getting a headshot is more a matter of your own skill than your opponent's lack of it.

>And if someone just turtles on the main base … it's honestly their fault

Yeah, and if you put those bases in the wrong spot? Wasted eco. If you expand too slowly? Opponent gains massive production advantage. Lose a skirmish? Welp, there goes any chance of a lead until lategame. Seemingly minor failures have huge cascading outcomes that are very difficult to avoid.

>I don't want the genre to focus on casuals or cater to them

Nobody does, but the current state of RTS is an unfriendly, unwelcoming game with long match length, high investment, and low probability of success.

To use the FPS analogy, RTS is like playing a 1v1 to 10 points on an enormous and sparsely-populated (item-wise) UT2k4 map and you only get one weapon (your viable strat pick). Maybe if you and your opponent get to 8+ points you can swap guns later. Would you play this game? Fuck no. The game's outcome depends way too much on predicting your opponent's weapon pick and the game is going to take way too long even after it's apparent who's going to win. The optimal strategy for getting the most wins/time is not to play the game, but to try to outpick your opponent, and if you didn't do it right, leave immediately an begin another match. Now did you pick the right section of the map to scout out? No? Just leave because you're fucked anyways because whoever dies first is at a massive disadvantage (opponent keeps health, armor, etc). Bear in mind that your opponent will do this too, since they want to have fun and not waste their time.

The end result is that you'll have a game that nobody actually plays except ultrapros and retards. All the regular mid-skill players will realize that they could be having a hell of a lot more fun playing something else.

To fix RTS what has to happen is that there needs to be an RTS made where:

>Expansion speed isn't locked to XTREME or YOU LOSE

>Switching strategy mid-game is actually viable

>Comebacks are actually possible against a good player

>Superior eco doesn't mean an automatic win

>Average 1v1 match length is 15mins or shorter

Now to be fair there are RTS games that have some of the above points, but never every single one as far as I've seen. The overarching idea is that the game will allow creative strategy, the outcome of a match won't be as deterministic (or at least not as predictable during gameplay), and the players won't feel as though a lost match has wasted their time.

I've always seen SupCom FA as an RTS that provides this experience due to several unorthodox strategies and means to overcoming opponents. Largely thanks to the assassinate-based victory system, allowing one clever move to undo your opponent.
