Shattered galaxy is amazing, try it out.

Turboflex

Shattered Galaxy and Navyfield are both great classic games. SG RTS strategy and Navyfield is more action oriented tactical strategy and is very demanding skill wise.

If people want to try an amazing free action MMO with some RPG elements try Infantry online:
http://www.station.sony.com/casualProduct.vm?Id=039

Deep gameplay that takes a lot of skill.

What is so bad about Saga, I didn't know there were many MMO RTS games out. It didn't look too bad.

Khyron
06-30-2008, 08:57 PM
Saga is based off micro transactions. Meaning you buy booster packs useing real life money to add aditional units to your forces, the boosters do have random units included. On a sad note your real life money you spent on units is lost when the unit is destroyed.

Saga is bad... It is just trying to be cheap and get quick cash...

nickson104
07-12-2008, 03:08 PM
saga is a decent game in itself but yeah its just moneyhunting, the game itself is okay... kind of... its one of the few decent MMORTS games but costs a great deal... i have tried playing it and unless you buy boosters i mean like you tire of it within an hour due to the lack of units

i mean come on what is 25 light infantry, 20 archers, 15 light cavalry, 20 spearmen (javeliners, i think they are skirmishers but i never tested it fully) and 15 pikemen going to do really? i hear they added a spell and 2 of the common strong units in but still that wont be much

i am looking for a good free MMORTS too that is what led me here... this may not be free but no monthly charge and it looks awesome so im staying, cant wait for a beta... i am currently on a waiting list for warhammer online beta but i doubt i will get it so i hope i can get this one :)

That is not true. You do not loose your units when they are destroyed in Saga, you loose the level that you leveled those units to if you disband the squad but you do not ever loose the unit or card as they are called. SO basically you keep what you payed for, and on a side note, I play saga and its actually pretty fun, once you get to the higher levels its a lot of fun. And also you dont have to pay for anything off the bat, its a free download and you get a certain amount of cards when you start, so its really not that bad! If anyone plays, you should PM me! In game name : Lorderan

I played it about a week ago but i got bored of having such a small force base and knowing that i could easily get more but that would cost me (i hated that)
Plus the fact that i couldnt even use half the features... they claim it to be F2P but you just need to buy boosters, however its not really as you need to BUY a full account to use most of the features

ash12181987
07-14-2008, 09:26 PM
I think most F2P games I've ever found are like that: Yes you can play, to a point, but those of you who DO pay... yeah your basically gods compared to those dullards who don't.

Everything cost money to upkeep, including server we play on, production costs, maintenance.. All of this comes at a hefty price, they have to pay for it somehow, anyway there are a lot of sites giving away free registered account with three booster packs. I don't disagree that you have to buy booster, but the amount you actually do buy is set by you, they don't force you to buy them so you don't have to spend that much money. Once this game comes out though I will definitely be playing it over anything else though!!!! :D

Well in Europe you cant buy boosters except by card which funnily enough a 15 year old does not have :p And besides i looed for those sites and they all dated back to sometime in April and the offer expired...
And yeah me too sketchie :) this game is going to fill a big void in my gaming life at the moment :)

There is a very interesting mmorts in production (closed beta at this time), it is a hobby project of Treeform, game itself is named Angels Fall First : The Second Antarean War.

The Second Antarean War is a space mmorts game. Player takes a role of a fleet commander from a glorious Antarean Empire or United League of Planets and fights for control over systems.
For now we can: join faction, buy ships, attack/defend systems - for that we aquire money (requisition points) and if we are rich we can buy more ships and make more profitable for other players to defend/attack specyfic systems.
Building stations, ships customization, kind of economy simulation, perhaps new faction (npc or not) is in plans just like other interesting stuff, check videos and forums for more info.

Main site:
http://www.aff2aw.com/index.html
There is a "Ships in Game" section for those interested in ships of each side, not all of them are included but still most of them.

These movies will show details of game:

Kell Aset

:eek: why? I see great potential in 2AW, remember it is in early closed beta and game itself is being made mostly by 1 man. Everything will still change, game balance (units etc.) combat more like navy battles + firing arcs without just standing and shooting at each other. It will be quite interesting when finished :) .

I think DoF will be just as good when it's finished as well.

Kell Aset
03-31-2009, 01:16 AM
Both will be good but different in their direction. DoF as You know will give players unique chance to own piece of land (great idea indeed :)) to build there and to care for it.
2AW is a little simplier like - jump in, buy ships go attack/defend space system, kill ships to get more money and buy more ships - that will be good when there is not that much time to play and when we have of course mood for space cRTS :) .

Hmmm... I am disappointed about Stronghold Kingdoms.

Look here (http://www.onlinewelten.com/games/articles/interviews/4003-stronghold-kingdoms-informationen-stronghold-mmog/3/) and you will find an interview where they say much about the game, such as "Basically Stronghold Kingdoms sits somewhere between ’Stronghold’ the RTS game and browser based games such as Tribal wars or Travian." and " Its not an RTS in that you control your troops in real time, but you do get to watch the battle when it hits and orders that you have given will modify your troops behavior and the outcome of the siege.". :mad:

But then again, I will have something that way to play @ work 2. :P

Aothane
06-26-2009, 05:08 AM
would these types of games include some degree of hack-n-slash gameplay and character advancement elements ?

I love that particular genre, but it is difficult to come by enjoyable games, and as particular markets go they have not been very rewarding (to say the very very least on the matter) to game companies of recent years.

Aametherar
06-26-2009, 05:14 AM
Hack n slash sounds more like the MMORPG genre, like Warrior Epic for example. MMORTS is more like Starcraft on a much larger scale, but also generally with slower gameplay for obvious reasons.

As for web based games, that's usually turn based, no actual user combat.

P.S. Can't believe my spell checker still doesn't acknowledge Starcraft in this day and age.

I could give countless examples but i'll just give 1 that happened to me and others I know of. If there's a bug in one of their games that has adversely affected you and you report it they'l delete your post and pretend it never happened and you don't exist no matter how much you try to contact them, unless you try too hard they'l ban people, didn't ban me but others I know of for trying to contact them and get things fixed. I just said ok I quit all your games bye, and never went back then blocked their spam emails :P

blackfang
01-06-2010, 03:05 PM
if any of you are willing to pay for a game (to continue to make things better then trial) i would really like to suggest beyond protocol once more even tough it is already posted, i played through the beta and became a pretty big player. The reason i quit was really that i could not really pay more the fee afterwards, but it is pretty fun:D If i ever get a bank account i migth consider starting again. Also its just that it is a bit boring to design every single aspect of the game by yourself, i mean you can use hours just to make one perfect design. But once you got up and deployed your armada you should be good to go for server crashing (my guild when i was there The black hand crashed the servers once a while by placing ten thousands of ships both godlike and small whenever we went for a raid:) tough i didn't get on many of those raids i did however hold the frontier system and created the so called PURGE of traders consortium and that other weird named group:) It is so beautiful to scout a player then suddenly drop down with a HUGE army and let them go rampage in the enemy base:) My army reached a total of 200 frigates and more then i can count of fighters and escorts, i did not however get many ships above that. Except those i bought because i did not want to even try designing a good design.


So if that did not convince you that BP is good i don't know what to do, but i think it is a great time consuming game for those lonely days waiting for DoF:)

Ohh yeah even tough the black hand was actually the best guild in the universe when i played in the beta, when it started out in retail or whatever it is called. It was almost completely obliterated because of some beta grudges, i mean most of what we did in that guild was terrorize the guilds we were at war with. That and those raids which appeared from nowhere claiming entire systems most of the times. Ahh the good times:p

War of enlightenment is a turn based strategy game for 20 human players with single master server. War of enlightenment client includes also single player game possibility, so players can practice the game before they join to real multi player games.

In multi player games, each player rules his own nation and competes against the other Nations in orders to became the Emperor of Europe.


Im pretty sick of time-based mmorts's so this was perfect for me. You can make your turn at whatever time you prefer as long as its before 20:00 GMT every day.

mm, 4th felt like an abomination. I still play three from time to time though, I really enjoyed HoMM3 and still do. 2nd was more popular, but I always felt 3rd was more accessible and I liked the tactics for it.

Sounds interesting though, wish I had time to try it out.

HoMM3 was a really great game, maybe the best from the series for most of us. There will be a flash/browser based HoMM, Kingdoms I guess and this will be almost the same as HoMM3 for I heard.

I just got my beta key for c&c. Going to download it tomorrow. I'll check if there's a nda and if there's not I'll let you guys know how it is.

About the screenshots. I always make a lot of screens/vids just for myself. When I tried making screenshots and recording my screen for c&c4 beta, only my desktop showed up... I wanted to record my first game I played but all I have now is a desktop with a mouse moving over it...:confused:

Time of Defiance is totally Free2Play now with no money involved. The game has hit a wall dev wise and they are working on a new offering. Until then they have promised to run the servers as before but with no subscriptions. A bunch of old players are surfacing and its been pleasant for nostalgia lol.

If you like your card games then Battleforge is Free2Play.

Also feel free to pimp on my boards - I support viral and player led marketting methods.

:eek: why? I see great potential in 2AW, remember it is in early closed beta and game itself is being made mostly by 1 man. Everything will still change, game balance (units etc.) combat more like navy battles + firing arcs without just standing and shooting at each other. It will be quite interesting when finished :) .

i think the game has potential, i love space war games like eve online and some others in to lazy to name off

The only thing C&C/RA does right these days are the cutscenes and music, the actual gameplay coming out of the newer games just doesn't.. I don't know. I just don't like it, ra3 for example never felt right it was just another C&C game, no longer red alert. They're not bad games by any means, just too different for my tastes. I liked RA2 and wanted that with better multiplayer support+graphics, instead we got a totally reworked economic model and crazy units that made the game feel like another universe, not a continuation of RA2.

And that is the most valid and correct post i have read in a long time... It is true that all they do well is the music, im not too sure even about cutscenes...

Another game that applied for was halo wars, it had some amazing cinematics and the story was okay i guess, but other than that it was just another failed RTS... I hated how fast the multiplayer games degenerated into one unit rushes... Either the notorious 7minute warthog rush, grizzly rush, hawk rush etc... the 'super' units in that game were a bit 'TOO' super...

But admittedly i do still play that game from time to time, simply because of the halo universe :) it can be quite fun with all the units :) but i must play with friends, its much better to see a balanced army rather than an army of one unit...

I would think the nature of MMO would really help with the pacing. People won't be expecting "real time tatics" *chris taylor*. They will be a little more relaxed that way.

Games where rushing got no point is games that the fortress/village itself is quite powerful i mean see for instance rome total war (even tough its just strategy kinda game) You would never attack with one or two units against a castle, that would be suicide. You wait till you got at least half an army, or some very powerful units. I have seen other games where rushing is no good too... I played stormrise against 7 other players (Or at least thats what it seemed like, i didn't get the teams at all:confused: still don't since i haven't played online since then.) No one rushed me, afterwards i learned why. If you just strategically place the right people at the right place no one would attack you because it would simply be suicide... They even waited for the whole army to get ready, they planted siege units outside my entire base. Their aerial units fell like flies, however i lost a unit once in a while tough. My resources was low, and my only defense was 6 of those two legged mechs, two siege tanks and the rest was snipers. My siege tanks took the enemy's siege tanks and other evil doers, my snipers kept the roof free from mind controllers and other snipers, and all the rushers were teared apart from my mechs. It was truly a horrific combination however i lost due to having no income after some time of hard fighting and loosing my snipers and 3 mechs... That is the kinda game where you never rush, if you do you normally get crushed pretty easily:rolleyes: That is a defenders most likely to win kinda game, however the attackers get a lot better later. Thats the kinda game i hope this is for, defenders most likely to win in the start and attackers got equal chances later on:D

Shattered galaxy was a really fun game, I loved it like crazy. But the "owners" of the game now could give less of a shiz about it. Because of THERE lame system is what got me banned, just don't play that game. It was fun while it lasted, but hey: If it wasn't for the lame "owners" I would have never discovered DoF, so maybe I should give them credit, no?

Not sure what you're talking about. But I played SG for a while, it was fun, but the developers sold the game and all updates ceased (on a bad version no less). That was many years ago, so it's re playability is lacking, plus people that played for years have such an extreme advantage it's just not worth playing if you're new. Again I have no clue what you speak of with this "ban" thing. But that's my take on it.

Id like to think it would help but im not sure with the build times for walls but chances are Rushes when the game first comes out will be a widely used tactic Along with trying to capture trade carts and things of that nature Fear the rush for it is mighty :x

Nice new AoE version .... i thought at first. Than i went to look it and was quite let down. The new cartoony graphics (to attract "bigger population"). In my opinion they should just update the old version and would be better. Neither the buildings nor units look something special and just one faction (greeks, oh the good old age which had like 8+(?) factions from start). Finally one of the worst thing is no offline play =(. Well cant judge gameplay yet but i hope it has more massive battles (which i missed in original aoe =)) and some units have special abilities like at aom.
I will sign up for beta to see how it goes if will be chosen. But atm i am not impressed. It would be also better if they did it like stronghold online with original graphics.

What do others AoE lovers think?=)

GPS51
08-30-2010, 09:36 AM
Yeah I feel the same way about it as you do. I don't mind that they're redoing one of the age games but this feels like a cop out to casual gaming and to see an epic series like age do that is not bueno. For one thing LAN is always how we managed the have the most fun back in the day. 3 pc's booted up off of 1 pc. Ah yes and don't forget the gothic rush! Teach those britons who rules the world!

Puppeteer
08-30-2010, 02:45 PM
Agreed - the graphics look similar to Battleforge, that is to say very cartoony, and some of the buildings are replicas off AoM (ie. the dock).
But then again, the emphasis in Battleforge is on online play and fun then on realistic graphics. It's meant to be smooth. I only played the beta though, so I'm not that well informed.
Anyway, this will not be a game that I'll purchase.

GPS51
08-30-2010, 02:57 PM
Hey they say that Age online will be free for base copy. Another odd descision when it comes to Age online. But I figure that it will increase the population who are willing to give it a try because it doesn't cost the 50$ that the previous age games have run (not including x/y packs)

If someone is interested there is another upcoming game, a real epic one remade for online play, Jagged Alliance Online (http://www.jaggedalliance.com/index.php?id=39&L=1). Those who know and liked the game will be pleased to hear this news. Still I'm waiting for DoF open beta and can't wait to have it on my tabel in a boxed edition.

Elements of War (http://www.elements-of-war.com/en/) – is a modern MMORTS, with a single-player campaign included, set in the post-apocalyptic world that has suffered a global technological disaster. The failed tests of experimental climate weaponry completely destroyed Washington, D.C., burying the government of the United States under ruins. This caused a sequence of ecological disasters all over the world and was also the reason the European Expeditionary Corps were sent to the USA torn apart by warring military forces. The story of Elements of War will unfold gradually over the 12 missions of the single-player campaign, in which you will command the joint forces of Russia, Germany, France and USA. Having completed the single-player campaign, you may go online and choose one of the two warring sides, former allies, fighting in a new conflict. You will engage in thrilling battles enriched by highly detailed gameplay animations, realistic particle physics and dynamic weather that will affect gameplay directly. You will be able to play as Russia or the USA in 10 types of PVE missions, fighting marauder gangs swarming the land. To aid you, there will be over 25 upgrades of military hardware, which includes both existing units and futuristic weather elementals and quite a lot more.
The key features include:
An original storyline
Convenient classic RTS controls
Battlefields up to 2 square kilometers in size
Tens of highly detailed units to control
An army ranking system in the online part of the game
10 large-scale missions for the single-player campaign
A chance to play American, Russian and German forces in the single-player campaign
The online confrontation of Russian and U.S. armies
Unique climate weaponry

Have not tried yet but it sure seems to be a free to play World in Conflict clone, what is in the end not a bad thing.

Battleforge is alright...but, prepared to pay money if you want to have any good cards. Also, the pve game is a little to short, with only around 2-3 dozen missions that you can do on normal, hard, or expert.

My personal recommendation would be League of Legends, just because its a really good game if you want something that is free and that does not require you to pay for anything to be competitive...and its a lot of fun :P
