RTS Players is a website established in 2016 by a group of hardcore RTS gaming fanatics, in order to preserve and expand the dying RTS genre. From Starcraft, to Age of Empires, to Total War, we’ve burned away hundreds of hours playing the top titles in this genre. Unfortunately, by 2016, it’s become clear that this genre is slowly, but surely, dying. With the rise of MOBA games, such as League of Legends and Dota 2, and other exciting developments in the gaming scene, such as large multiplayer games (Overwatch?) and the rise of mobile app gaming, interest in new RTS games is slowly ebbing away.

Thus we create this website. Some reasons we think RTS games are the best genre and will never die:

  • The most competitive atmosphere. RTS games definitely have some of the most intense PvP plays which the gaming scene has witenessed.
  • Requires most skill – debatable, but it really requires a large amount of mental capacity to handle all of those units
  • Micromanagement
