8 - 12 Player RTS Lan Game Ideas

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Hey up everyone. I've been searching the forum for a while and haven't found really relevant to this topic so I'm just asking what you folks would recommend.

Soon I will be having another LAN party and in the past every event (normally around 6 players) usually consisted of the usual counter strike, halo, age of empires etc.

However this time there will be around 12 of us participating in this Lan event and was wondering if anyone could think of any RTS games that could handle that number of players in one hit. We've already got a few First person shooters ready and we've drawn a blank at the RTS.

Our current solution so far is to have a mini tournament so that we can all play the same game at some point.

But any help or ideas would be appreciated! Thanks!

its only 6 players, but solium infernum would be a great game to play.

Its probably the most complex and engaging TBS game ever. You will be lying and cheating and manipulating your way all the way to the top.

The game is so deep, you will be lying to people in their face about your intentions.

You can spend an entire game thinking 1 guy has he back against the wall, and that you are manipulating him into doing your work for you, only to find he has been positioning himself in line to take you out.

That just sounds wrong lol. Where is this LAN party? I wanna go. Anyways most RTS games I think of don't support 12 players. I know coh can only do up to 8. lol/hon can do 5v5. I honestly dont know of any to support 12 though...

The game is so wrong its fun.

i sat for hours one day at work plotting with another guy i game with at work about how we were going to stop the guy in first place, only to have him stab me in the back because he had also been plotting with the other guy, and decided it was the better choice. I dont think i have ever made so many tough choices in the game, and they are all fun.

Its a game with only 1 winner. So thats how you gotta play. Be friends all you want, but in the end, there can be only one.

It's not RTS, but doesn't Civ IV/V take up to twelve players (I think)? Some Starcraft custom game modes can accommodate 12 players (Star Battles, for instance - 6v6).

I can't think of too many more...

I vote Sins of a Solar Empire. That game has massive maps. I also believe that there may be custom maps for 12+ but not entirely sure.
