    Just make the game simultaneous turned with armies having an area. As they run into each other, or pass near each other various types of battles take place and army movement is reduced.

    You could...

    You just seemed to tunnel vision pretty hard and can't see the forest for the trees. The criticism you would level is more inline with the player who is fundamentally bad at a game than someone who...

    I mean people are "plentiful" and people die constantly in unfortunate circumstances. We largely do not value their lives. I just googled "car crash "my cities name" and apparently last night two...

    Man, aren't you just the king of jackass mountain.

    I'm not sure why we are talking about your supposed ability to not lose a match. It has nothing to do with the discussion at hand, and is in...

    I think y'all are talking about different things. There is the idea of is it fun to play or will you enjoy it and then there is the question of is it good mechanically.

    I have a friend who likes...

    Competitive in the modern sense (with a plethora of ladder and ranking systems in nearly all your MP games) is usually just the game played in a certain structured way.

    After coming from the rather lackluster experience of battlefield 1 I've been having a lot of fun playing Titanfall 2.

    Its been a while since I've played a shooter that revels in movement as much...

    It wasn't ever that large of a mechanic though. Most games would be essentially closed out by the time either global warming or pollution became a problem. Even in my attempts to accelerate natural...

    The exclusion of pollution is a mechanical choice in a very "this is a video game" sense. Civilization has bounded between being a competitive game and a light simulation of history. Civilization...

    Eh, I felt kinda iffy about the whole thing reading the RPS post, but his slightly more technical post clears it up for me. I also have a hard time attributing malice to someone that I both don't...

    Soldier is an okay off-healer. But as a primary healer he is pretty bad.

    His healing has really bad up time, is static, and has a small area of effect. This means that you can't sustain your...

    Eh, I don't think Wenz is totally off the mark. With a game like Dota you can clearly see how people are doing and why you are doing badly. At a glance I can see that our offlane is being zoned and...

    I'm not hand-waving ancient prejudices away. However, they were functionally different than modern racism. They were much more heavily based in ethnocentrism and xenophobia...

    Calling the Romans racist is a bit of a stretch. The concept as we understand didn't exist then and applying our understanding of it to ancient peoples is misleading, and by calling the Romans racist...

    Yea, Eight Rooks has it down. The story at the macro level was pretty terrible. Personally I think the game does succeed narratively at the micro level though. The story of you sneaking through the...

    Did we even watch the same video? This is looking much closer to Arma, Squad, or Red Orchestra than CoD. Heavy weapon sway, heavy recoil, no "spotted" marker above enemies' heads, hip fire that...

    Rushing was as much a part of the meta in CoH as it was in other popular RTSs. The biggest difference being that rather than wrecking the enemies base, as you did in the eponymous zerg rush. You...

    The RTS genre tends to be a jack-of-all-trades master of none genre, and I suspect it was popular largely because it was able to commercially support a number of disparate genres under one box. Even...

    I personally don't think it is intentional. At least not in a way that is meant to keep people out of the genre.

    Wargames tend to have their own "language" separate from most other genres. This...

    The flamethrower from Red Orchestra 2/Rising Storm is almost certainly the best flamethrower to appear in any game.
