Re: End of nations : the first MMORTS ?

Vimes, get off the high horse now. Look at the responses from random commenters on the linked video itself. They look like verbatim copies of the first 6 posts made here. I posted a reply to this thread in this forum about the part of the video that made the biggest impression on me. Respected RTS ...

Re: End of nations : the first MMORTS ?

Are you blind? Seven posts followed the OP from your community discussing a respected RTS developer like kids. Two posts then followed showing a hugely blinkered dismissive view based on lack of fact. ie the continued mention of lack of PvP when I have pointed out the core role of PvP within the gam...

Re: End of nations : the first MMORTS ?

Ok. I just stumbled upon this thread, which apparently has been cleaned up a little before I even arrived, so I'm not entirely sure whats what and I apologize beforehand for the length. Kids bedtime etc - will respond to this post later if you dont mind after i check out some of that which you ment...

Re: End of nations : the first MMORTS ?

Oh ffs... Vimes I was somewhat interested in this project but now since it is associated with you i dont even feel like exploring into it anymore... You are very bad at advertising.. This is not that game's board It's Spring's Forum. I didnt start the thread or begin the trolling and bitching. Im n...

Re: End of nations : the first MMORTS ?

Though I must admit that Im not really sure wtf you are trying to say, it comes off as fanboy rambling. back at you chap - you said nothing bar your preference for a historical use of a term, before the need arrived to be more accurate. Most folk regard chess as a game not strategy. Like tetris. My...

Re: End of nations : the first MMORTS ?

Seems about as much strategy as "lets attack that faction while they are busy farming resources!". This is way off chap - ive been hit by an entire guild in multiple locations with mixed fleets, each hitting a key objective. Whilst responding to this I was able to move fleets to counter other attac...

Re: End of nations : the first MMORTS ?

I could be wrong if there is some deep metagame with espionage, research, thoroughly planned invasions etc (not "lol lets maek party n kill those noobs"). Rather like what 4x games have. This exists in Beyond Protocol for sure and Mankind. The epic scale one server non restarting games encourage ve...

Re: End of nations : the first MMORTS ?

Thats not what has gone on at all chap - dont try and derail the thread again please. If you dont like it read another thread. Im not advertising this game beyond the carrying i do for all games in the genre. In fact the AAA nature means I have little to do as I normally give extra leeway to indie d...

Re: End of nations : the first MMORTS ?

Wtf is your point with all this rambling... Do you actually know how a proper RTS game works at a high level? lol... soz - thats it reply wise. Not worth more. re TBS - no, small dedicated groups still play Quake 2 - doesnt make it shit or outdated gameplay wise. Was just an observation you are rem...

Re: End of nations : the first MMORTS ?

Not sure about end game really, Im sure I will find out the possible outcomes shortly but all is subject to change. If the game could be certain to last a year or so then I would possibly agree to a reset but I would prefer and ongoing campaign where a dominant faction becomes the order. At this poi...

Re: End of nations : the first MMORTS ?

The PvP is present already with faction fighting amongst the rebels for resources and key strategic points. Iirc there are three main alliance factions within which player created guilds will exist. This may change as gameplay tests it out but it sounded workable from my experience of very long term...

Re: End of nations : the first MMORTS ?

So this is basically like WoW or whatever MMORPG, but you dont have a hero but instead a home base and a bunch of tanks? sounds horrible... No - sounds much more like many games of Spring with an over-arching story that each instance affects in real time. And much more. You cannot say the bases don...

Re: End of nations : the first MMORTS ?

There were many MMORTS .. First was shattered galaxy i think. Shattered galaxy was 2001 release and Mankind 1998/99 - though a heavily loved game that is still going and discussed every thread about the genre. Many see EoN as its succussor down to the instancing within a live rts environment etc. E...

Re: End of nations : the first MMORTS ?

Vimes, I have yet to see anything to redeem you as a programmer or experience wise. No website, no projects, no screenshots, no employment history, no code, no games. Again proving how little you folks look. Im no coder - already mentioned that - but I work in construction - surveying, architecture...

Re: End of nations : the first MMORTS ?

Insulting this community and showing that you are not part of it is not going to get you far with getting your point across. If a grown up had replied to the OP I would have just watched. The derogatory manner of most of the following posts deserved little else - do they seriously represent your co...

Soz - pre coffee post after seeing a google alert leading here. I tend to feed off the arrogant replies and leap in. Amazing how folks can deride something so quickly isnt it.. Only 2 posts dealt with game, since everyone else was clearly hung up by the manner of presentation, not the content. The ...

Re: End of nations : the first MMORTS ?

Compared with the complexity of strategy to cope with long term goals and aims, springs little maps and minor foray into resource production (seems more like magic to me than supplies) makes spring look more like instanced tactical play in a very small field of operations. Compare that to the strate...
