Interesting... Looks like you can upgrade your mech with different weapons. I'm interested. Ofcourse if what I said was admitted or denied int he writeup above, I didnt read to see it. Scans too big, cant be bothered.

Clearly Nano didnt read it either.

You can upgrade your mechs they have 3 nodes you can attach things to, you can have 3 different upgrades or 2/3 of the same which makes it better and you can customise them on the go. Theres are the slow sloppy but strong faction. There are lots of upgrades to one of the better sounding ones is mind control where you can do an AOE mind control that takes over enemy soldiers, or one that infects fleeing humans and turns them into zombie type mutants that attack the enemy. Theres also build type walkers that act as a slow moving base and can make different units depending which customisation you have equipt.

Also the other faction uses nano tech, you can built lines of out posts connected by beens of lite which you can use to zip from one side of the map to the other and you can stealth them but if one that links them is distroyed by the enemy it cuts off the path. Also in Multiplayer enemys useing the same faction can enter your nano light beems. This is the light, weaker but Faster faction.


Faction 3 is not yet shown.

Best RTS of the year? Bold statement for a game you dont know much about. I'd wait before saying stuff like that. While it looks good we cant tell how good it'll be.

DId you not see the video and how it will play?

It already sounds better then CnC3, though CnC 3 will probably take all the RTS of the Year awards.

The video doesnt show much. You're moving along with either 2 large units or a dozen small ones. Nowhere in the clip did they show us city building, upgrading, power resources, army tactics, different types of attacks upgrading etc. It was a simple tame video. If thats all that it takes for you to get impressed and label Greatest RTS ever, then you've missed a dozen or two greatest ever games over the past few years.

The trailer didnt show off much bar graphics, But from written previews it sounds like a top notch RTS, a cupple have likened it to, and said it could be the next Star Craft in faction diversity and gameplay. That can't be a bad thing.

I don't know what fruits is moaning about, usually he loves it when I put things in his mouth.
