I don't know much about this, I'll be honest, but from what I've seen this game doesn't really seem like an RTS, at least not in a traditional sense. I'm not saying thats a bad thing as RTS isn't the most popular genre out there, but as a veteran RTS player this game doesn't look very appealing to me and I'm interested to find out if you guys who are more knowledgeable about the game can confirm or deny my suspicions.
This game seems like a hybrid of a moba and a RTS to some extent. My perception (and correct me if I'm wrong) is that you're typically controlling 5-20 units and trying to control various objectives ont he map... I'm a bit confused about the resource system, how do you earn resources to get new and stronger units on the field?
As an RTS player I feel like this formula is really lacking. It seems like its a bit like C&C 4 and a modern day war game that I can't remember the name of... came out like 3 years ago and involved 10 or so players per team commanding small forces. Decent game but got stale quickly.
For me RTS is a lot about the choice between economy and power, teching/defensive play and agression. It's about figuring out what your opponent is doing and abusing his weaknesses, and to some extent that seems like its missing in this game. There is no economy as far as I can tell, its just about rocks paper scissor and positioning, which is fun to some extent but for me that isn't the core of the RTS genre, and I feel like its going to be lacking.
Additionally as a competitive player I really enjoy 1v1 play. I don't want to have to carry 19 other players every time I play this game and have to worry about other people's stupidity. This is a problem a lot of people experience in league of legends where they feel that their individual skill is often not enough to earn wins because they have to carry idiots. I really feel like personal skill is going to get lost in this game because with 20 people on each team theres really only so much you can do to fix the mistakes and shortcomings of your massive team, one player just can't win even a 2 or 3 v 1 in most RTS let alone a 1v5 or something. What happens when johnny and bob lose their whole army and billy has to fight off 4 people alone to have a chance to win the game?
