It'd be nice if someone came along and breathed some life into MMORTS's, and did something like the Buy to play model instead of free to play. Or, even subscription based. Funny to think, but I still would pay monthly for a game that I thoroughly enjoyed. I've consistently played WoW for almost 10 years now, and pay for that.

The RTS Genre hasn't been the same since Ensemble Studios ceased to be.

Age of empires 4 on consoles would be epic.

Or remake the first one with good graphics obviously and add all the good features that worked over the years.

Literally my most wanted game that will probably never see the light of day.

So sad.

I was really sad to see Age of Empires Online go the way it did. Not becuase I thought it was a good game, but because I have such fond memories of the genre.

What I'd love to see is some sort of MMORTS/Civ crossover...THAT would be something...

RTS isn't mainstream last time i checked but there's always gonna be some good games around i believe.

I'd say Starcraft and games like Dota/LoL are pretty mainstream.
Thing with MMO games is that a single popular game just cannibalizes the others, and it is difficult to break into the market and stay relevant while fighting off an older more established franchise.

Hopefully Company of Heroes 2 survives the post-THQ experience.

Name one persistent "RTS" online that doesn't have a major cash shop problems? Tiberian Alliances, Stronghold Kingdoms, Lords of Ultima, etc. All of them are so drenched in Pay to Win it's not even enjoyable, and the graphics are sub-par too. WTB Persistant Warzone 2100

In my entire life, I never really thought MMORTS were anything big. I follow variety of games pretty close, and MMORTS never really come up on any major radars. Its just not a very attractive idea.
