Name a worse strategy developer
>>
>>1147939
Easy.
Your favorite RTS developer.
>>
>>1147939
Hey man, Dawn of War had rough edges but at its core it was a great game. Still a favorite of mine.
>>
>>1147939
Blizzard.
>>
>>1147939
Paradox
no contest

>>1147968

Time to let go...
>>
>>1147973
Paradox hasn't made a good game since 2012, but even its bad games are topping steam charts.
Relic hasn't made a good game since 2011 and everything they've put out since then is a flop.
>>
>>1147973
Blizzard switching from being King of RTS to She-thing of Zoomie Gaming counts as being a bad RTS dev.
>>1147983
CoH2 came out in 2013.
Pretending that it was a flop or bad game is bad for your psyche.
>>
>>1147951
anon, that was eighteen years ago...

Well here's something else that came out in 2013
>but muh all-time peak
That was in 2019 during the free giveaway. And it obviously managed to keep none of those people.

As for the quality, it's no DoW3 but that's not a high bar by any means.
>>
>>1147939
>the right people
>at the right time
>in the right place
A lot of thing must things must align for single good game and even then it never lasts.
The tragedy of game development and video game industry.
>>
>>1148000
>but muh map painter!
what is this false equivalence?
Next you will post CoD stats.
>>
>>1148000
>comparing quality with pop numbers
>competitive RTS vs casual map painter
Let's not pretend those games have the same audience
RTS in general is on decline and even Starcraft feels it
>>
>>1148064
>competitive RTS
Which game are you talking about?
>>
>>1148069
No no no no
I'm not going down "what's competitive RTS" rabbit hole
The point is not comparing games with popularity since then you turn RTS into Fortnite
>>
>>1148073
its alright anon, the rest of us know you're right
>>
>>1148000
don't care dude, never played it, but it objectively wasn't a flop
>>
>>1148000
I think a lot of people found CoH 2 very enjoyable but didn't stick for a long time because A LOT of stuff like fun gimmick units is hidden behind commanders you either have to grind for impossible amounts of time or buy for outrageous prices.

Yeah Dawn of War 1.

DoW 2 was decent for a real time tactics game but it was no RTS and no real sequel to DoW1.

DoW 3 was a raging trashfire.
>>
>>1148073
A competitve RTS is the one that has a competitive scene. What was the prize pool for the latest CoH2 tourney this year? You can't just call things "competitve" if there's no actual competition with money on the line.
>>
Whoever made Iron Harvest, what a shit fucking game
>>
>>1148320
Honestly the commander system is the biggest con for me trying to play CoH 2. I really wish they had stuck with the CoH 1 doctrines.
>>
>>1148556
Generally speaking, bad mechanics etc.. are 100% dev fault, but ca we attribute the microtransaction thing to sega?
>>
>>1148327
Mario and the Raving Rabbits 1 is good. IF they weren't a bunch of assholes that hated fan-games I imagine they'd also support stuff like Hyrule Kingdoms. But as it stands yea they made one offcial RTS and would shut-down anyone trying to make their own with their characters so that's pretty bad.

They truly are the worst

Whoever made Tiberian Twilight.

Blizzard
>>
>>1151130
The people working there are nice though, I live in the same building as one and they always give me chocolate and cooks me food.
>>
>>1151133
EA, they basically ruined c&c.
>>
>>1147983
>Product with marketing sells
>This means the product is good
1800+222 and this faggot still doesn't grasp how ads work.
>>
>>1151245
While that is nice, nice people aren't neccesarily skilled or experienced enough to make good games.
