Rrrrrgh... shit like this infuriates me.

After you already have a great franchise in SoaSE, why the hell do you downgrade yourselves and make this crap?

I don't think there's much of a crossover in audiences either, from real RTS games such as SoaSE to MOBA nonsense. MOBA games in general seemed aimed at people who cannot or will not play more 'traditional' or larger scope RTS games.

At least SoaSE:Rebellion is pretty damned great. It's a shame to lose yet another developer, but these guys will either go bankrupt or continue to make this RTS-lite crap from this point on.

If this game is indeed deemed a flop, there won't be Ironclad anymore.

I'd be all over these games if the playerbase wasn't purely toxic. The last thing I want after a hard day's work is to be chewed out by some basement dweller that has nothing better to do than play video games 15 hours a day. Why can't we just go back pre-DOTA to just plain old Warcraft 3, without "multiplayer".

Well, there's Warcraft: A New Dawn mod under development.

Also, too: Fallen Enchantress?

Oh, I forgot I heard that Crusader Kings II is pretty good, too.

Smite seems much more like what he is talking about and less what the video footage shows. The animation looks painful!

I guess they're trying to show off the visual detail, which will be ignored by virtually everybody during normal gameplay.

I wonder why all the footage they show is so zoomed in (I played it without audio, so apologies if the director explained that.)

Dunno, it just seems like this sort of game is more impressive seeing the larger picture.

Just what we don't need another MOBA.

I had no idea SoaDA was a MOBA. Thought it was an strategy game a la the original Sins. I agree with the other commenters, while I loved Sins, and appreciate how Ironclad continued to update that game and keep it fresh, I don't have much interest in this. Not really into multiplayer much.

Edit, and yeah, I that's a terrible video, but I don't blame that guy. He's doing the best that he can.
I thought I heard that it's supposed to be an RTS/MOBA hybrid (someone playing RTS with the creeps). I appear to have been mistaken.

Well, that was pretty underwelming. Between League of Legends and Dota2, i personally think the modest market is already saturated. Maybe after this flops they'll need to make some money and make SoaSe2 so we can finally figure out whats chasing the Vasari.
