MMORTS mode or standard, preference?
 
There's been a lack of things to discuss since beta hasn't started, and I thought this would provide an interesting topic.

MMORTS, Standard, Both. Which are you most looking forward to? For me it's MMORTS. I made the poll public since it's not asking anything private and it makes it easier to see what people think since not everyone will actually reply.

I love the concept, but so far it's pretty much dominated by horrible browser games so I can't wait to see what rev does with MMORTS. The only decent title before this would have to be End War, which honestly I couldn't stand. I felt it was a poorly done rock paper scissors with faulty controls.

Both equally:

MMORTS:
Finally I cna mage my people and watch them die and suffer pleading for mercy and cry and feel sorry for them as I steal their goodies...it's gonna be fun making alliences, adventures and trade ;p.

Plus I can't wait to make quests where you have to set up a small camp and defeat the evil Ogre that stole the village princess and return her to her father, etc. (Would be cool if quests could have a limit on how many men you can bring, so you could make RPG type quests).

Skirmish:
The crazy and unique scenarios XD.

They've said you can nearly do anything, if their editor is as versatile as they make it sound, that'd be possible. The question is will MMORTS mode be flexible in what type of scenarios can be added to it so it's not limited to just the standard game, be it through game alterting maps, or just little things like the very small limit on army size to encourage RPG style tactics/micro.

Oh and one question for you or anyone else, I feel like I'm adding mostly if not always constructive posts, but I wonder if it might be misconstrued as spamming. I certainly wish there were a few more active people on the forums, I know there will be plenty whenever beta starts though.

Until then, cheers, Devs should be glad we give them conversations from fans of their game to read ;p.

Must...wait...for...aplications time.

MMORTS mode is the vote.

I would prefer MMORTS mode to skirmishes, I don't really like playing single maps against generally random people who I don't know. In MMORTS mode, I will be able to scout out that person in advance and then attack him, knowing more about him. And MMORTS promises to have more features that intrigue me such as the trade carts and trading in npc cities.

Do note the best of standard is a bit misleading, standard also includes user made content including total conversion maps, dota-esque stuff etc.

MMORTS, It's how I got here anyway.

Darathor 09-13-2009 12:08 PM

Even with user-content, I still find the MMORTS mode more attractive because I still prefer the content and features that it offers. I might play a tower defense occasionally, or maybe even dota if I am really bored, but MMORTS mode seems much better(not only for convenience(it will always be there for you, where as you have to find other players for a map) because it let's me interact with dozens and possibly hundreds of people in one large world environment.

Oh I agree. I just wanted to clear it up. I myself absolutely plan on creating a specific type of map once I have the editor/no obligations to rev, and playing it whenever I feel like a break from MMORTS mode, unless it happens to be so engrossing that I just never leave MMORTS, which is possible. We'll see how it goes, I have a very specific and well thought out idea that I'd like to do, but if MMORTS mode is just that amazing, well I'll just not do it : p
