Starcraft/RTS Interest Thread
« on: July 31, 2009, 09:40:01 AM »

Starcraft is the default.

But

Do we have enough people here who can grab other cheapo RTSes?

What I'm saying is that we go with Starcraft by default. We can swap it over if the vast majority of you can propose that we can play Warcraft 3 instead, or we can just add more events, so you have Starcraft, Warcraft 3, and Terrible Spores Expansion or something.

So, post interest and ideas and what not.

Ahem!

I have Starcraft and Warcraft 3 and I love playing both, even though I am super terrible at Warcraft 3!

I'm completely down for Starcraft, but the only other RTS I know how to play is Command & Conquer Generals and perhaps World in Conflict.

I think there's a free version of NetStorm going around.

WiC would be the best dang team RTS ever for a competition of this scale, too. Three members of each team commanding armor, air, or infantry - entire teams going head-to-head at once. I mean holy fuuuuuuuuuuuu

Maybe the demo? I remember it having multiplayer of some sort!

If you want the official RTS event to be anything but starcraft, prove to me that a significant number of people have non-Starcraft games and will play them?

Right now it looks like:

Norondor and Kabbage - WiC

Buge and Doom - Warcraft 3

not very compelling

Merge this thread with Starcraft Megabattle.

I propose a map, large, with one of each starting worker bee for each player and a pile of inexhaustable resources beside three main buildings (nexus, hive, command center). 1000 resources of each type to start. No teams.

Really i only brought up WiC because i think it's super good. I don't think it's possible, or reasonable, to ask everyone to learn it, or go get it for that matter, and i haven't tried it post-expansion, which has probably changed at least something!

The fact that it takes a beefy PC is kind of the icing on the cake.

(note that the reason i think it's good is because i like shelling things with heavy fire support, and also i hate sim-city style RTS games like Total Annihilation or whatever. a game with no resource gathering or building at all therefore appeals to me!)
