I came here to share with you my feeling about a new RTS game named Armies of Exigo.
The game was developed by a group of ex-StarCraft pro-gamers and some hardcore RTS players.
Armies of Exigo is a fantasy RTS in which the combats take place on 3 different levels at the same time: underground, ground and air combats.
In the world of Exigo, where peace and prosperity have reigned for years, the Empires of man and beast face their greatest threat yet. A sinister force known as The Fallen has awaken to strike where the inhabitants of this world least expect - from underground. For more information about the game history please check Armies of Exigo Tactics website.
You have the choice between 3 totally different races: the Empires, the Beast and the Fallen.
Each of the races has unique units and unique spells. The game graphics are simply amazing: units are so well detailed :) and the best of that is that it doesnít affect you game experience with more lag for instance :).
For those who like playing a single player, doing the campaign or simply training some strategies vs a computer, Iíve got to tell you that Black Holes teams raised the AI level at a level as high as never seen before! Playing the campaign on hard or a melee game versus computer is now a really good challenge.
For the adepts of the game in a multiplayer mode (like me :)), you will be more than satisfied. The gameplay is a mixture between the well known games: StarCraft and Age of Empires. From the other side, it provides special features that enable you to get into a strategic depth and create a unique gameplay. Each unit has a viable counter unit (more then one in most cases) and many options to go with.
The game is geared towards the hardcore RTS player and is a very micro/macro intensive game with close combat! Even in mirror matches you will find that many players use very different BO's (Build Orders) for whatever strategy they are going for.

Sorry, but you are not allowed to post this here. Perhaps the Off-Topic would be a better forum, but I think it's not allowed there either.
That said, thanks for the info :D

Erm.. no offense, but is this an advert? And I agree with Thul Rasha, since this doesn't have anything to do with GW, it should at least be in the off-topic forum.

They are both right. This should be posted in the off topic forum.
Just my two cents - Dragonshard will be a whole lot better - lol

I played it in Beta. It wasn't anything special, just your average RTS. If you want more tactics, I suggest waiting for AOE III or getting Dawn of War.
People will like it though, its just not really that tactic based. Its a rusher game.

Incredible, every single post of this user is spam advertising about this game...o.O
I'm not even bothering to look at it anymore.
Oh, btw for the people that need a GW beta key, there's a new contest at mmorpg.com
