Hello everyone! This topic is about strategy games only. Well, at first, I have been browsing the internet to find a game like World of Battles, which is closing down, or if i found anything similar, it's either closed already or something else I don't want to know about.

Do you happen to know any games of strategic genre, online if possible. Now, I am not looking for Total War bull.... because these games are holed up like Switz cheese, or any cheese that contains a lot of holes.

You may also discuss these games here...

But all I am asking is, do you know any games I mentioned above? Something like medieval based with a little bit of fantasy, I am not looking for WWII or a millennium forward based games either.

So, let the discussion begin!

the Age of Empire games (1 + 2 in particular) are timeless classics when it comes to medieval strategy games (and can be played online) :P

Warcraft 1 & 2 are pretty darn fun as well, but dunno how to get online with those.



i guess i'm getting a bit old, all the new games just looked like clones after i played these so i never bothered to continue with the genre (empire earth b&w and all those on and on and.... yeah i got tired)

The first C&C games are released as freeware as a publicity stunt for the failed Genelals free-to-play (P2W), which I heard got a new studio working for it.

Supreme Commander, my fav strategy game ever!
Its an old game but still worth it to buy.

Also, some players of Supreme Commander FA made also their own game called Planetary Annihilation.
Its like Supreme Commander you play only on an entire solar system instead of an planet

Warhammer 40k Dawn of War 2 and its standalone-sequel-DLCs Chaos Rising and Retribution.
EDIT: Ok, Civilization then. It is freeware nowadays, I just can't remember did it require DOSBox to play.

The only strategy game mentioned in this thread is CIV, the rest is tactical.    :blinky:

CIV 5 is good, but far too tedious for my taste.

Why are Total War -series left out? I though Medieval II Total War to be far better than Civ, it's faster paced and I really didn't like the tile system of movement in Civ..

Hmm, I put too much attention into detail, and therefore I don't play it anymore...

PS. Punching a guy clad in a steel plate kills him. Charging Hashashin with Gendarmes is not a good idea... they bounce off xD

Creative Assembly doesn't know what balancing is ;)

Well, I have to admit my tactic in Medieval II: TW was to amass the biggest possible armies with a bit of everything, always keep two right next to each other to draw both into battle whenever I hit and just simulate my way from victory to victory :smile:

I almost always played as the Teutons. They had almost everything unlockable while still having awesome castle units (20 teutonic knights or so could just walze right in, head towards enemy castle and destroy everything)

I didn't like the Byzantines (they had the most unlockable skills and tech but their horse castle units sucked)

oh the Persians were real fun too although they didn't have much tech, try and put 10 war elephants into a small boat in any other game xD

Try the Hearts of Iron series from Paradox. My personal favorite is Hearts of Iron 1. Other than that, Civ2 to Civ5 are also pretty amazing games.
