My idea of what an MMORTS should be is this: a completely persistent world where anyone can attack anyone at anytime. You can be permanently killed and have to start over.
This game isn't innovative, nor did it invent the MMORTS genre, lol, you could do anything with an MMORTS and claim it hasn't been done before, there are probably less than 20 (That includes ones out, in beta, and in development).
Sorry for sounding so negative, but...well here's how I picture an MMORTS...when I saw this game I thought it'd be along these lines... http://youtube.com/watch?v=l-dhe_nufKQ
Just answer me this...can some nerd rape pillage my people at 2am while I'm away from my computer and permanently kill me or not?
