One of the finest, if not the best, modded genre of gaming.
Did it pass out a while ago? Or it's still dragging it's foot for second Era of Generals? Speaking about Generals, Command & Conquer? Anyone? Second game gone flying into the void.
Warhammer series. I can talk about it all day. We heard of the third Dawn of War game... A year ago. Same cause? Maybe. Still flying in vacuum, thinking on RTS genre evolution. Second game was not really mod-friendly, because Codex Astartes does not SUPPURT DE MENNUVER. Armageddon is not what I expected, disappointed. Space Hulk: Sin of Damnation - low budget, but Ascension is certainly a game to play, gives you unique experience.
Total War series. Rome 2 was a great game, In my opinion, but not mod-friendly. But the real style of World Map and cohort warfare is loosing it's moves, so Total War can be sent into the void to rethink it's style and genre.
Wargame series. Oh, what a game, what a game. Not mod-friendly, again. Didn't differ a lot with every game in series, adding maps and units, polishing Campaign. Creating a division was sure a pain in the ass. Too hardcore for new players. I lost this game after Red Dragon, didn't play it much. T-80U, huh?
Back to the genre cause. Grey Goo and Planetary Annihilation are trying really hard to push the dead Strategy into the future, so does mod community. Some say that the future of strategies is MOBA, but I highly doubt it and see it too grimdark. Starcraft 2 has played it's role, getting RTS to eSports scene. What I love about Starcraft is that it proves the fact that RTS can have a decent story-line worth of a Hollywood CG movie.
But it's not us who will decide the true fate of strategies. We're just a bunch of oldies, that remember "those times". We need fresh people, fresh companies that believe strategies can fight with FPS and MOBA for a champion title.

To friends and those who watch my activity.
After 4 months of heavy depression and nomading, I'm back. I don't have my main PC with me, so I can't run most of the mods because of slow internet and low-end machine.
I'll probably be back at Hazardous Environment community management, but I didn't receive messages since July, so, it's dead I suppose.
Stay frosty.

You live in Donetsk town inside Russia, or do you live inside the peoples republic of Donetsk? Either way, good luck to you comrade and keep safe!

May you and your family be safe in this troubled times of war. Ukrainian army shelling civilian towns and committing war crimes will not go unpunished.

PRD, indeed. Things are not going well nowadays, Republic of Lugansk are getting smashed, and a part of elite forces have escaped to Russia. I hope we get better soon.

No, it happened far from the center of my city, so I couldn't see it. The "Buk" rocketeer was found transferring through Dnepropetrovsk, city controlled by the UA army.
