Wouldn't it be cool if Blizzard made a Turn Based Warcraft game. I am a fan of TBS and RTS. I have always wondered how a Warcraft TBS would work our.

Turn based is alright but...multiplayer. They would have to have multiplayer over email or BBS or something. There wouldnt be battle.net for a turn-based WC cuz people would take tooo long to take their turn and all that other stuff. Not saying that WC turn-based would be bad or anything. By the way, have you play the Stars! turn-based game? Metal Knights 98? Those are cool.

I like that idea!! Though if they were going to make it it should be in a new craft game.

I always liked how some games have some minor aspects in them - such as Arcomage in Might and Magic. Might and Magic sucks but arcomage is actually kind of funny. That would appeal a little to the turn-based thing. If they decide to make some card games within warcraft III you should have to build an inn in order to play them...

No never played those. I like the fact that you can play multiplayer without going on the net with TBS. You just play hot seat.

I think the only good part about a turn based craft game would be not having to worry about lag.

what if the player could choose between turn-based and real time? just a thought.
If you like TBS, then try Heroes of Might & Magic series. It rocks!

Man, how can you say Heroes of Might and Magic sux!

Its prolly the best fantasy TBS game around - i cant wait for Heroes IV (ive got all the games also)

Well.. LoTR was.. alrite... but they needed some major fixes

You know wha'd be cool? A shogun like game (as in mass armies) set in Europe with castles (which you can design) and some technology progressing (like eventaully.. getting cannons and stuff)

Turn based!? =[ yeesh dunno so much about that. I don't have the patience for it. Especially now that the game is supposed to be so combat oriented I don't think the whole turn based thing would fly well.

I can't wait for Heroes 4 either. I thought those chronicles games were kind of pointless though.

Lords of Magic? No no. There have been many since then. Heroes 3 and it's expansion, Age of Wonders and many more.

Yea, i've played cossaks before

Fun for your musketeers to take pot shots at the poor peasants in a wheat field

Actually, a TBS game for Warcraft is always possible...

The hero is the leader guy (of course)

Resources are like gold mines and stuff

There are quite a few neutral creatures to fight (raiders / rogues, ogres, etc.)

Castles / towns can be in

However, it would sound like an extreme ripoff of the Heroes series

Age of Wonders was a half-a$$ game, but some cool units and races
