    Again blizzard is able to use it's base of ignorant fanboys to sell a product.  SC2 came out 5 years ago, it was called Dawn of War...

    Maybe I'm confused this is a Diff company and SC2 looks way better and plays way better. Dawn of War was the SC clone. Nice try though.

    I know SC1 came before any of the Dawn of Wars... Its not hard to use google try it sometime. I would love too listen too your story on how dawn of war somehow leaped from 2004 too 1997 (before SC1). Does it hurt too bad that your game came second and is played by way fewer people? If you are refering too the board game Warhammer 40k yes it came first... but this is a Video game thread not a stupid little board game thread.

     Dawn of War? Isn't that that game that faded into obscurity years ago and had a horrible sequel that killed any chance for another?

    I's ok not to like a game but when you have to resort to calling people names you've stepped over into trolling. SC2 would have been a success if the only place you could buy it was in Seoul, South Korea. Yeah it's that popular.

    ROFL.  Fool!  I shall mock you, call you names,  and make fun of your taste in games simply because I don't agree with what you say!  A ha ha ha ha ha!  Take that!  I really showed you didn't I?

     Fixed it for you.

     

    So you dont like this game and call people fanboys. Good for you.  Maybe next time you can be something other than a generic troll, and actually try to come up with better insults.

     

    Calling one a "fanboy" for liking a game or company is really getting stale guys.  Lets try and do something new.. ya know.. really get the blood boiling.

    Nope, won't effect me. Don't  play RTS, I tried WC and never finished that one, that was enough for me to never touch that genre again. And they basically all are the same from command and conqueer to SC. For some reason I just don't enjoy them.

  • BaffaBaffa BorasPosts: 37Member

    Is it just me or I'm the only one so incredible tired of all these RTS games?

    Startcraft 2 looks like any other generic RTS game, might have better looking intro but.. meh..

    RTS games have basicly been the same since Dune 2.

    Strategic zoom doesn't make those games better. SC2 offers fast paced, actio orientated gameplay where as Supreme Commander is a much more drawn out experience.

    I agree. "Ass kisser" works much better than fanboi.

    Yea your comment is true if you want to play the real time rush gamestyle. I personally prefer the real time strategic playstyle myself.

     

    Is it just me or do zerg rushes seen a bit boring?

     I found supcom to be all about building the biggest army rather than the right kind of army - never felt in control of my units as they kinda just flew around doing their own thing, I like RTS games where just a few units can turn the tied of a battle I get that in SC1/2 never got that in supcom.

    Not saying supcom is bad, it's just not my thing and I never found it strategic.

    You are right a lot of supcom 1 players did this....they were my favourate opponents as they were fun to beat. Afterall whats the use of a superheavy experimental when a few well positioned bait defences and a tac nuke worked very well.

    The only RTS series I can stomach these days is the Total War franchise. I'm sure Sc2 will do quite well in the coming months, though I never really saw the appeal in any of Blizzards RTS games. That may have more to do with how I feel Blizz ripped off the WAR Ip as well as 40k than the actual game itself though.

    Dawn of war is in NO way a rip off of sc.  Obviously you never played dow so you obviously wouldn't know wtf I'm talking about when it comes to the mechanics used in sc 2.  You're not old enough or smart enough to understand what real RTS vets are talking about so go back to the battle.net forums with the rest of the retards.

    5 million copies in 24 hours...outside the place that bought the most per citizen. and yet we refer to it as ONLY 5mil. Really.

    I agree that DoW is in no way a rip off of SC.  But lets all be honest here, DoW is a derived / branch of SC.  A lot of what makes DoW can be seen in early Warcraft Mods and SC 1 mods. 

    But even with that said  Dune II: The Building of a Dynasty could be considered the first mainstream PC RTS game.  Its not the first RTS game, there where others that had bits and parts of what RTS elements we have, but it was the first to bring in the mainstream elements that we continue to see today.

    Well, the online numbers may fall, but I doubt anyone will be completely quitting their MMO.

    It's funny you should say that, I went home yesterday and for some reason decided to cancel mine and my wife's WoW subscription and so I did just that.

     

    I doubt I will ever play WoW again, it was a great game but I have lost my interest enough that I have not had the urge to log in for over 4 months. The game was still being debited from my account incase I ever felt like playing again, but that's not the case. That and the fact that since I stopped spending so much time online I found that there was so much that I had more time for, I don't understand how I even had time to play with all the things I have had to do lol.

    So yeah, this thread is kinda spooky seeing it the very next day I cancelled my subs lol.
