Are there any RTS fans among Warlord players?


Recommended Posts

Does anyone here also enjoy playing real-time strategy (RTS) computer games such as Warcraft, Starcraft, Command & Conquer, Age of Empires? Just wondering because I enjoy my share of them and, in my experience, there is usually some degree of crossover with people who like to play RTSs also enjoying mini games (and vice-versa).

While I enjoy RTS games, I wonder if Warlord has more in common with Myth: The Forgotten Lords and Myth II: Soulblighter? These were great games, in their day, that were about much smaller armies that most Warcraft type games.


I still play Warcraft III, though. My computer is so ancient that that is all it can do. :)

My computer sucks the big one so I can't play Age of Empires III or Empire Earth II. :down:


But, my friend and I will play Age of Mythology: The Titans Expansion all the time, as well as AOE II: The Conqueror's Expansion, Empire Earth, Cossacks, Startcraft: Brood War, Star Wars: Galactic Battlegrounds. :B):


Wild Bill :blues:

oh wow. I started way back with warcraft then command and conqur<Sp> I spent hours and hours playing that game. then red alert.


then Starcraft


then I got out of it for awhile didnt really get into the age of empires or any of the others untill my friends dragged me into dawn of war and most recently Winter Assault.


But it does divert funds from the mini buying and painting!

I'm not a fan of RTS games: too much mad clicking for me.


On the other hand, I very much like Age of Wonders (I, II, and II: Shadow Magic) which are turn based strategic & tactical fantasy wargames which remind me quite a bit of Warlord.


The strategic level is more like Civilization (except cities are usually already existing) and previous fantasy explore and conquer type games. The cities are used to produce units and city improvements. Group the units into stacks of 8 which may drawn from quite a few different types and races.


When two opposiing armies meet, the combat is normally resolved tactically.


Here is a link to some screenshots from Age of Wonders II: Shadow Magic.


Races include:

  • Orcs
  • Goblins
  • Dark Elves
  • Undead
  • Archons (think Crusaders)
  • Elves
  • Dwarves
  • Humans
  • Draconians
  • Frostlings
  • Cat people (I forget the actual name)


Units can also include heroes which gain special abilities through experience. Heroes can also use magic items.


Quite a bit of fun, especially since the game supports modding and home grown scenarios.
