:FFFUUU:

Lets all kill EA now!


#2

F2P games need to die.


#3

Definitely! Because the F2P concept often only works for the publishers and studios, if its P2W. Otherwise people tend to not spending anything on microtransactions.


#4

Well, I know what game I’m not even going to bother trying now.


#5

same reactions in our country…same reactions in other countries…and ofcourse, mine is the same…to hell with these money-sucking bitches …

I’m just waiting for the ingame notices:
“You have bought 5 tanks. To buy more, purchase General Points here…”
“The new rocket soldier DLC is here. You now don’t have to fear your opponents planes. Buy it for only 7,99. € of course!”
“Unlock General Miller, if you want to win this Challenge. Gen. Miller is part of the Character Pack for 15,99. € of course!”

Edit: Oh and Origin is a requirement. (I don’t know this for sure, but I’ll bet you it will be)

:fffuuu:

well, it should eventually be sold as a complete game, on steam, right? like in 2015? I’ll pick it up then.


#8

Noooo! Why? How much more can you destroy such a nice series like C&C?


#9

I dunno, if they do it right and really put the focus on competitive online gaming, with clan support and a good matchmaking system and community infrastructure, without pay to win; it could work.

But yeah, it’s EA, soooo…


#10

This is disgusting.

I wanted Generals 2. Not some F2P multiplayer-only bullcrap. :meh:


#11

I hated C&C generals anyway.


#12

generals (not zero hour) was an amazing multiplayer game (except for the bugs and lack of support)

C&C has always been primarily a multiplayer game tbh


#13

I tend to disagree.

The C&C games have indeed always been a huge multiplayer hit (Red alert 2, Tiberian Sun, Generals,…)

But what made C&C really “C&C” was the singleplayer cutscenes, storyline,… which I and probably many others really missed in Generals (although they considered it a very good game but not worthy of the name C&C in the title)


#14

I thought Generals was a very good game. Not in a very C&C kind of way, but still as itself a good game.

EA already ruined the series with Tiberian Twilight. What could be worse than that?


#15

Noooo not just AoE but C&C too?
The reason i played Generals was because i can play as terrorists in the campaign


#16

Nobody ever told me that when I was playing both sp and mp for the games


#17

Generals 1 was brilliant (and zero hour). I still think the first decade are quite possibly some of the best RTS games ever made. They even put Starcraft and Total Annohilation to shame at times.

But I hated this game before this announcement. As soon as I saw Bioware was attached to it, I knew it was going to be a disaster


#18

Personally, I really didn’t enjoy generals at all. But that’s probably because at the time I liked the future C&C universe way better than the “modern day” C&C

I was so pissed when they turned NOD in C&C 3 into basically a reskinned GLA


#19

The original C&C was meant to be just a small step into the future, but otherwise modern day. That’s why the first game had humvees and A-10s, among others.

Generals was intended to carry on that original intent.


#20

No single player campaign???
