Congrats to the devs to pursuing this more epic scale/strategic side of RTS gaming, I'm so sick of endless warcraft/command & conquer tactical RTS clones.

Screenshots and concept look great and if you guys can pull off the technical side it should be a killer game that will hopefully kick the ass of the current franchise that dominates the genre: Total War.

Ive been playing that series since Shogun but I'm so sick of Creative Assembly putting out buggy, halfass games, you'd think after 5 years they'd be able to fix bugs like melee/archer hybrid units not working properly, or how about general's bodyguards suicide charging enemy lines as shock troops?? These guys are so bad and they know their fans will keep buying their games cuz there's no real competition.

Way to go Reverie, I'll definitely be buying this.

What the heck is wrong with you guys? The DoF - Total War comparison might be a bit iffy but he's only expressing his enthusiasm for the game. This sort of thing is hardly uncommon on any game forum. Provided it's at least a decent game of course and I think we can agree that DoF is shaping up to be a lot more than just decent.

Thank you for the encouragement, Turboflex. We do hope to outdo other RTS titles, the Total War series being one of them.

A thread like like this was shot down in the Off Topic. If he wanted to express it he could do that there...

We all have opinions of all or any games we play; everyone has a full right to express their opinions with free speech.
RTS games have several elements to balance to achieve popularity; some of these attributes I think are most importantly the gameplay, how realistic it is, and its level of fantasy and creativity, most important is its flawless gameplay which includes glitches, errors and unfinished or unsupported conditions and situations inside and outside of the game.

Will DOF be a Total War Killer? I dont think so. DOF is high fantasy, Total War Series chooses a time peroid and make a game based on real history. For me personaly i perfer medieval history/fantasy games. The next game for the Total War Series looks to be based around colonial time peroid. Personaly i perfer my fantasy/high fantasy games to be without gunpowder or a minimal gunpowder.

im gonna buy both anyway, since neither DOF nor Total War has that much in common except being absolutely great games
(Altough DOF might outdo Total war a little bit)

The game will be a regular retail game, so you will have to pay for it. However the MMORTS feature will not require and additional fee at this point.

No monthly free projected at this point. This sounds good at this point.

I believe the camparison come mainly that the main way people inform others is by compairing similar experiances. After all what MMO that has come out after World of Warcraft has not been compaired to WOW. WOW is an industry leader heck Dungeons and Dragons is compaired to WOW. Fantasy Jonra is mostly based off the Lord of the Rings, that lead to fantasy table top games, those evolved into tabletop RPG's, then the games became digitized leading to World of Warcraft and everything then being compaired to it.

Total War series and Dawn of Fantasy are the closest games in RTS that are known by members of these forums, this leads to the comparisons.

Personaly i believe and hope i am correct in believeing that most game developers do not wat to kill another companies game. I believe that most companies understand that competition is good for the industry, promoting companies to better there games and moveing the industry away from stagnation. Well something for everyone who reads this to chew on.
