Default Hello, I'm new and have some Questions

Hi,

This project looks really interesting. Most of the information available is really focused on the MMORTS portion of the game (which is cool!) and I can't seem to find much about the single player modes.

Can you play a campaign-like series of skirmishes where you basically would be playing like a Total War game, purhaps eventually taking over the whole game-world one territory at a time?

Is there a thread or something I'm missing that goes into more details about the single player gameplay?

Thanks in advance

Yes. There are plenty of discussions about the single player. There will be a story campaign and you'll be able to play skirmishes as well too.
Also you have posted this thread in the wrong section - I believe you should have posted it in the traveler's introduction section which is a subsection of this.
Next time please look where you post. Thanks.

I saw that there is a linear story driven campaign, but I guess what I was getting at is I'm wondering if you can play the single player skirmishes like a non-linear campaign like in Total War where you can have open ended freedom in which cities that you take over - so hypothetically you could eventually take over the whole game world / as opposed to just skirmish individual battles.

Could you point out some of the threads regarding details of single player modes? All it says in the features is "extensive single player skirmishes" without detail. Seems like everything is oriented around the MMORTS - and for good reason.

I'm not big into scripted linear campaignes but I loved the way you could almost play in a sandbox type of campaign like with Total War, thats the best example of what I am talking about.

Only a dev can answer if the single player campaign works like that, I would doubt it considering the primary focus is MMORTS, not single player, but who knows.

Hmm could possibly have some fetures found in the online world. found this from a dev which does hint to what you mean althouh this is the persistant world and not single player. So we will have to wait longer to find out

And when it comes to managing the town, or army - again please can only do this in RTS view.

And yes there are load screens, but right now in the not-so-optimized engine you are looking at 8 to 15 seconds long load-time. We`ll try to push this down to 4-5 seconds.


There are lots of World events - but we are unleashing them as players progress through the quests, instead of a specific date. Example of world events: civil war in human realm, orcs vs humans war, elves vs orcs war e.t.c

Ya I've searched around and haven't really found anything. I saw that post too but like you said thats regarding the online play.

I think you are right that this is a question for the Devs, as I have not found an answer unless I missed it somewhere.

Basically, does single player skirmish work the same way as online play only with AI instead of live players - and with the ability to "capture" territories?

No. Skirmish is just the regular classic RTS skirmish. You start off with an already built stronghold I think.
And the storyline campaign... You know honestly I don't think it's open world but it is kind of possible considering all the games are coming out like that now and this game has an open world ready engine. But you are right, I don't think we heard much about the single player storyline mode and how exactly it is played out.

I believe you start out with what you do in MMORTS, just a hero and a few peasants along with a town hall, but everything is built, trained, and gathered much more quickly.

I believe this to be more likely as well - however it's entirely possible that like several other strategy games they'll have different starting settings ranging from bare bones to fully developed.
