And how on Earth has my post anything to do with C&C4, when that game consisted of two crawlers deploying next to each other and spawning tons of expendable units, and the one who won was the one who spawned the correct counters faster?
What has that got to do with those two-three rockets troopers stopping six or seven apocalypse tanks because I micro'd them a lot?
Seriously, can "YOU WANT C&C4 ALL OVER AGAIN?!" be the counter-argument for anything, regardless of what you are talking about? "I like resource collection" - "YOU WANT C&C4 ALL OVER AGAIN?!" ?..
c&c 4 was only tactical wasn't it? I didn't play it so maybe I'm misinformed?
I watched some games on YouTube. It tries to be tactical.
Come to think of it, taking away the base and changing nothing in basic unit mechanics is the cheapest and dumbest way of "forcing" the player to focus on "tactics" possible..
am I wrong?
C&C 4 was largely about microing your units tactically right?
CnC4 was largely about the $$$$$. EA wanted some and wanted to exert minimal effort to get the $$$$$$. You gotta admire that. They could have crapped in a box and labeled it CNC4. People would have bought it. At least they made a video game.
This time around the $$$$ is going to be more elusive. You guys want a Generals remake from what i'm hearing. I want a game that I will personally enjoy, because i'm a ####.
I want bigger guns then my opponents. I want giant font sizes for my text messages so i can write embarassing messages that my opponent won't be able to ignore. I want to pay real $$$$ to be better than my opposition. If i sit my pet monkey down and rub peanut butter on the keyboard, i still want to win 90% of my games because of my sweet gear. That right there is your baseline, EA. Your measure of success.
Please add lots of explosions too, and guys doing cartwheels in the air. That stuff is wicked cool.
