course i would, but i just have to see the clone wars please!! lol

If it was more in-depth than EAW (with more research options, resources, et cetera), then probably yes.
|#5 - Posted by: AdmiralSnackbar (Member) on 10-14-2008 at 18:09|
same with number4. however the projectiles must look better. they looked suckish which is weird cuz when i was installing eaw i saw pics of it and the turbo lasers were more colorful and the missiles had better smoke trales. oand they have to update it more. they only updated foc once and it really didnt do anything. im not trying to be a critic so dont yell at me.

theres a huge clone wars mod. its called imperial assault 2. it was offline for a while but now the sites back alive!
|#7 - Posted by: DoomRaiden (Member) on 10-16-2008 at 13:05|
@6 imperial assault (in the name) is relating to the imperial/ rebellion era .... the original concept of empire at war lol and as much as i know its a mod for C&C Generals lol
|#8 - Posted by: AdmiralSnackbar (Member) on 10-16-2008 at 14:33|
actually that was the first one. they have a second one being developed
|#9 - Posted by: eculc (Member) on 10-16-2008 at 17:32|
umm...where's the 'maybe' catagory?
I'm going to say yes, because they could improve on the EAW idea to make a better one...
but it really depends. it'll propably be a spur-of-the-moment decision when it's been out for a year (lol, that's how I get most of my games now...)

If Ensemble Studios wasn't being closed, I'd want them to make the next Star Wars RTS. Though, I guess petro is alright.
|#11 - Posted by: Schofield (Member) on 10-16-2008 at 17:59|
They didn't do that bad of a job on FoC, it just needed more effort. So yes, I probably would.
|#12 - Posted by: simplestarwarsfan (Member) on 10-16-2008 at 18:03|
you betcha ;)
(hint:you'll get it if you watch SNL) oh and have a:donut:
|#13 - @#10 - Posted by: AdmiralSnackbar (Member) on 10-16-2008 at 20:08|
wait... ensemble studios is being closed?:eek:!!! but thats impossible! theyre still making halo wars! or are they shutting down after that?
|#14 - Posted by: FLOW_1 (Member) on 10-17-2008 at 10:52|
Ensemble is being closed AFTER Halo Wars is released, right after
|#15 - Posted by: compadict12 (Member) on 10-17-2008 at 11:16|
*phew* thank god for that...
Anyway, on topic again i would have to agreee with 4, but in a diferant era, maybe before the clonewars. All thoe, judging by the end of FOC the next game thats atleast LIKE EAW will proboly Silri coming to power... sucky.
|#16 - Posted by: Re4_Wesker (Member) on 10-17-2008 at 14:02|
ya i guess i would. i'd like it more strategy based though and maybe get rid of the unit cap....... scratch that get rid of the unit cap or at least make it a lot higher. and try to get rid of some of the lag to.
but ya foc and eaw werent bad games but they are plagued with a few issues that become quite bothersome after a while.
|#17 - Posted by: compadict12 (Member) on 10-19-2008 at 05:28|
that and the patches kinda destroyed them towards the end/....

Petroglyph proved to suck in support after they released a (bugged) game. Specially after FOC was released they inmediatly ingored the star wars community and started or continued UAW. I'm curious how long it's gonna take before they drop that community aswell. Propably when they make another new game.
They only tried to get maximum money out of the star wars games and then drop us like bricks.
I laugh when I go to their site and read they were once a part of Westwood, they are even proud of it. Petrogyph dishonors the name of westwood by saying that.
When you go online with FOC you had a news page. Now it has some chinese signs. Just giving an example of Petroglyph ignoring us completly. I think they wouldn't even wonder if we still play EAW online, they have our money so they don't care, simple as that. Another example is they made only 1 update for FOC and it's because they had no choice anyway. The FOC was released with many bugs. Any other game producer would be ashamed of themselves if they released that piece of crap.
Petroglyph is pathetic. If they would make another SW RTS they propably continue with the zann consortium a faction they invented and I refuse to accept it as a true faction in star wars. I'd rather accept the secret apprentice of darth vader then the ZC. The ZC is stupid. Remember the last scene of Sirli. Lucas plz don't allow them to make another RTS for star wars. They also harm the name Lucas Arts. Petroglyph is the mean reason why Lucas Arts put the PC RTS star wars games on hold!!!
So if petroglyph made another SW RTS I wouldn't even want it if they gave it for free, since they most likely continue with ZC and Sirli and their support sucks. Also hate the game it's graphic details when you put it on high. In any other game this "high", according to petroglyph, is maybe medium or even low for any other game.
They totaly screwed up in my opinion. I only bought FOC because I wanted mirror fights and the executor. A surplus is offcourse the only FOC mods. Petroglyph should pay our mod makers since they are the only ones convincing ppl to buy FOC.
I say to Lucas Arts:
NO to Petroglyph, YES to any other game producer

^^calm down mate...:rolleyes:
|#20 - Posted by: Re4_Wesker (Member) on 10-22-2008 at 16:46|
actually u have a point if a new eaw were to be released no petroglyph. ive disliked a lot about foc because of the numerous bugs. i was kinda dissapointed. foc did have potential but wuz let down by the many bugs and boring campaign. they shoulda continued the rebel and empire campaigns.
so ya petroglyph...... if they suddenly care more then yes i would get it. if not then no way. get someone else to make it.
|#21 - if... - Posted by: zman111 (Member) on 10-23-2008 at 14:35|

eaw wwIII edition
|#22 - but - Posted by: zman111 (Member) on 10-23-2008 at 14:37|
GET BLIZZARD TO DO IT THAY ROCK
|#23 - Posted by: LUKASS (Member) on 10-23-2008 at 23:41|
true I agree to 18 I think the same. and I also agree to 22 let blizzard make it they are good in making games like warcraft and starcraft.
|#24 - Posted by: kamikaziwatermelon1234 (Member) on 10-24-2008 at 17:32|
no, absolutely not. for all of you idiots that think this is a good rts GO PLAY STARCRAFT its 10 years old and still has more people playing it than pretty much anything. there's a reason its the greatest rts of all time. so seriously, go play starcraft, dont waste your money on a crappy sequel.
|#25 - Posted by: compadict12 (Member) on 10-25-2008 at 09:44|
#18, just wanna point out Tyber zann DID exist (in the starwars universe atleast ...), but neither he nor the 'consortium' were ever mentioned one in the films.
I know this cause i got those starwars comics that came out a few years back (all of them) and i rember hi, being mentioned a few times in them. As for the consortium, your absoloutly right, as far as i can find and rember it never existed, allthoe Zann was a big criminal lord....
Also I'd like to remind you petro can't do anything to the game without Lucas' permision, after all it's his franchise. So infact, he let them make the consortium...
|#26 - God - Posted by: Vaders_legion (Member) on 10-25-2008 at 15:39|
No. They killed EaW, their original concept was just way better than the end product and we wouldn't want that same process of dissolution to occur again now do we?
|#27 - Posted by: compadict12 (Member) on 10-26-2008 at 13:11|
Ultimatly it IS thier fault the game's trashed, but Lucas could have stoped them at any thime.. s'all im sayin'
|#28 - Posted by: Schofield (Member) on 10-27-2008 at 12:31|
#22, no, not blizzard, they suck
|#29 - Posted by: FLOW_1 (Member) on 10-27-2008 at 15:54|
Relic should make it, my favorite RTS's were made by them, COH, DOW, Homeworld 2, I'm sure they could pull off a star wars game.
|#30 - Posted by: Soveriegn (Member) on 10-31-2008 at 16:23|
I would buy it even if the same people made the 2nd EAW.....it would make nice firewood.
|#31 - Posted by: kamikaziwatermelon1234 (Member) on 10-31-2008 at 17:55|
schofield are you kidding me???? you honestly think blizzard sucks? wow....go play starcraft, trust me you will never want to play another rts after it. oh and by the way, its made by blizzard. lets see petro and lucas arts make an rts with a 10+ year lifespan....as a matter of fact name any one company that has made a single game with a 10+ year lifespan...
