As an excellent example of statements used by some game minority, that are ganged in very loud forum lobby.
Games where you can just spam a high tier deathball and faceroll to victory SUCK.
Wow! What stupidly embittered statement.
This is direct insult to fans of all the great and, really, close to sacred strategy games, by now.
That kind of concept depreciates gaming experience and impressions on millions and millions strategy gamers for the last decades and more.
So. Which were the good strategy games? (Few, just some personal preference, we all can name much more of these.)
"Warcraft" 2 and 3 + expansions, "starcraft" + "broodwar", "age of empires" 1 and 2, "stronghold" + "crusader", "civilization 3", "settlers 3", "heroes of might and magic" 3 and 4, "Rome: total war" and "medieval 2", "disciples 2", "red alert 2", "majesty", "spellforce" 1 and 2 + expansions, "king's bounty: the legend", "king Arthur".
All of these following are vs A.I. examples in the games.
"Warcraft 2" - can go mass dragons, or mass bloodlusted ogres and destroy everything.
"Warcraft 3" - go for mass knights and griffons and stomp everything.
"Starcraft: brood war" and "starcraft 2" - can make mass battlecruisers and obliterate everything.
"Age of empires 2" - can go mass paladins of elephants and squelch everything.
"Stronghold" and "stronghold: crusader" - can build mass crossbowmen and swordsmen troops and overwhelm everything.
"Civilization 3" - can go for mass modern armour and run over everything.
"Heroes of might and magic" 3 and 4 (and others) - can take mass dragons and angels and incinerate everything."Rome: total war"
- can build mass armoured elephants and conquer everything!"Medieval 2: total war"
- can build mass knights and charge down everything!
"Disciples 2" - where the whole point is to get paladins and prophetesses and annihilate everything.
"Command & Conquer: Red Alert 2" - go for mass apocalypses, and we will bury them!
"Majesty" - go for mass paladins and overcome everything.
"Spellforce 2" - Go for mass axewielders and berserks and chop down everything.
In "heroes of might and magic 3" no one, like no one in their right mind will go for peasants or even halberdiers when they have archangels, black dragons and titans. The whole point of gameplay is to get to these "cool stuff" and dominate the A.I. To win with the best, the most powerful instruments.
Other strategies with more role-play and abusing A.I. with mages or death knights in "warcraft 2", for example, can have place. This is what freedom is about. To choose your personal fun and powerful instruments to win.
No one dares to oppress this sacred strategy games concept.
And, to you, sane people, - why are you using agenda terms? Like: "doomstacks are bad". To shame something that was and is the way to play strategy games the whole history?
And why some of you excuse yourself before toxic agenda spreaders? Really? "We do not do this".
Are you ashamed of your free choice? Are you guys totally lost self-respect in this western "postmodernism" forced paradigm?
This whole discussions ideologically are shadowy but still related to "gamers are bad people, especially men are bad in general".
Is this absurd shaming works on you? Now you self-police yourself?
Girls and boys be proud of your freedom, of your choice to play the great game the way you want it! The way you like it!
