      No; MOBA gameplay with fantasy characters isn't particularly relatable, likable, or memorable -- people don't think and talk about MOBA plays because it's not intuitively linguistic or storyworthy.

      I don't think StarCraft is an IP people think and talk about; do many people know what the races and lore are? I don't think Space Fantasy with actual aliens is what the industry thinks is likable.

            It when you take into account how much it eclipsed all other RTSs in popularity. Not to mention bringing esports to the big leagues (I hate esports but sc's impact cannot be denied)

          I don't have Starcraft II installed and also my internet is pretty slow where I live. But I would say Starcraft II is as of now the best RTS, even if it is worse in some ways compared to Brood war.

    Personally I think sc2 it’s got a lot of content and a decently active customs scene.
    Notable games I’d like to put into the running: Brood War, AoE2, Wc3, RA2
    Personal Gems from me to (You): Rise of Legends, AoM, DoW 2 (survival mode).

    Best as in now? SC2 probably, because it still has a decent community that you can hop in and play arcade games with
    Best in history? AoE II, WC3 or Broodwar, all 3 are good, but each for different reasons
    My favorites? Company of Heroes and Warhammer 40k
    Hidden Gems? Empire Earth 2

    RTS will never come back, but it was the most interesting genre simply because companies in the mid 2000's were are trying to one-up eachother instead of copying the most success franchise, despite how people sperg over SC2's competitive focus, not all RTS games were trying too hard on that, for instance, Supreme Commander or World in Conflict

    • 1 month ago

      StarCraft 2 is an odd one to call out for competitive focus. It’s got perhaps the most fleshed out singleplayer content in the genre, a coop mode that saw pretty extensive support, ladder mode handed over to the community which is keeping it alive, a very expansive set of map editor tools allowing puzzle/fps/tps game modes in addition to the regular rts/moba stuff and even supports full custom campaigns with saveable progress.
      Sc2 is likely the best any Rts will ever be because it has so much in near every category.

    Recently got into AoE3, shit's pretty good actually. The only downside so far is the pop cap, or rather that there are units that cost more than one pop. Really reduces the amount of dudes you can field at once. I love playing as the Germans and having a bunch of regional units.

    Recommended me since games with good skirmish/campaign modes. So far I've got
    >StarCraft 1/2
    You know what it is.
    >Cossacks 2/3
    2 is slower and more about manoeuvring your formations to better positions. 3 is a remake of 1 which is faster and more of a traditional RTS.
    >Age of Empires 2/3/4
    4 is alright, but feels a bit sluggish and at max zoom everything looks washed out as fuck.
    >Call to Arms/Gates of Hell
    Probably the best version of Men of War. Built in DCG.
    >Empires: Dawn of the Modern World
    A tighter version of Empire Earth with less ages but more fleshed out civs. I personally prefer it.
    >Rise of Nations
    Everyone knows this one. Where's the definitive RoL game at.
    >Tzar: The Burden of the Crown
    Very old. Shit pathfinding. Every unit can gain XP and has an inventory. You can craft/find magic items.
