I don't like AOE because you need to focus so much on economy. Other than that its cool.

RTS is the best type of game.

But the best over all RTS is the original Empire Earth.

BFME is probably the most fun RTS to play, though.

I'm curious, what are some slower paced RTS games that rock? Rome Total War looks a bit slower paced because it looks more focused on combat then building up units while microing a few guys and stuff. I have C&C the First Decade for all my fast paced needs, but whats good for a game to chill and play? Like a little noob friendly and chilled. I looked at Warhammer 40K and Rome Total War and they both look like they are a bit slower than C&C. Also I want a large online community if possible... I bought an RTS called Blitzkrieg and it had like 3 people online in peak hours.

if by warhammer you mean dawn of war it doesn't seem to be very slow paced, it seems more demanding than starcraft(but then again I'm no pro player).

I think most RTS games are pretty demanding, if you want a break use w/e the rts has for use map settings and don't play so seriously.

Yeah that's what I meant. I basically just want a fun RTS that's a little different than ZH and has a lot of people playing... I did hear it wasn't as fast but I guess that's wrong.

I'm just gonna go install the demos and take RTW DoW and AoE for a spin.

Well, I don't know if you could really consider it RTS, but Civilization 4 is an excellent game if you like to win in other ways than just military strength. You can take enemy cities with your cultural boders and a lot depends on how you balance your research, economy and military strenght, It's a simultaneous turn game though, so like I said, not 100% RTS but it's damn good.

the thing is MOST of these RTS games are exactly the same...even though some focus on other strategical vantages they all pretty much resemble each other more or less...pick the one that looks the fanciest to you...or pick the one that meets up to you're systems highest standards..otherwise go play an FPS game lol.

having played C&C generals then C&C zero hour, then playing AOW. I prefer zerohour for its pace, as in a mass a large army, plus everything just feels very smooth. However i do like AOW realism like having to build a ir traffic controller tower to be able to call in planes, plus it is very detailed however it focuses too much on ground assualt and the indivdual unit, where as a personnal preference i like RTS to involve masses of air warefare. The new C&C game coming 2007 i think, looks to blow everything else out of the water.

search on google for C&C3 trailer
http://www.cnc3forums.com/

by the way these are rendered in game! not in a modeller.

Also i would highly recommend DOW to anyone who enjoys squad based combat once again, i prefere air combat and therefore found the game lacking.
