Sounds good! Can't wait to see more about this game.

Same here :)

Go Ironclad!

I'll be honest, this doesn't sound like it alleviates the DOTA problem at all.

I mean the main problem with DOTA actually, as strange as it sounds, was that it was so reliant on teamwork as it was. A bad player screws it up for the rest of the team and so the team act really hostile and un-newb friendly to them.

Now we've got a system where they are even more co-dependent and every players strategy relies on the commander being on the same gameplan as them? Even if no newbs are involved, all it takes is two players to have seperate ideas about how the game should go and friction will arise.

And the other problem I think with DOTA is a lot of the strategy is unobvious and stats based. There's no visual representation for a guy having really good magic defence and so you're cancelling your magic based attacks. (Never mind clusterbombs and stun locks :( )

Still wait and see till it's released

Why you no make Sins of a Solar Empire 2 Ironclad? Even though its not my kind of thing, I wish Ironclad luck with their new project.

Sounds interesting, we shall see what they do with it. Sounds like a game where one needs to play with a team of friends to enjoy fully.

Well they are giving us rebellion. And your picture... as a TEC leader I know you so I must doubt your words about not liking sins.

Yeah, just what I was thinking. And, Commender sounds like the worst job, so good players will try to avoid it, leaving it for the less skilled.

I am intrigued. I loves mah League of Legends and mah Sins of a Solar Empire. Could this be a good combination, like peanut butter and chocolate, or a bad one, like citrus and mint? FOOD ANALOGIES.

If this is anything like the old Heroes & Empires custom game for Warcraft 3, I'm totally gonna be a Commander.

Sins of a Dark Age is a team-based RTS game with the Multiplayer Online Battle Arena elements. The characters in MMORPG Broken Realm look more sexy than the 2D mmorpg Crystal Saga, and I think it is more suitable for adult players.
