Looks like it's the first Valve game I'm not looking forward too as a die hard valve fan. Nothing personal or stupid, not saying it will be a bad game. I just don't enjoy RTS games.
i know shes not the original but...
ASHE IS THAT YOU?
The only real RTS that interests me is Civilization.
But coupled with Source, this might actually be GOOD
Yeah, she reminds me of Ashe too.
Or however Ashe's DOTA equivalent was named..
Those pics, I love them.

Um, Civ isn't an RTS. It's a TBS. There's a big difference.
For those who can't see the site the whole thing, screened:
Why is Icefrog afraid to give out his name?
Meh.. Not sure if I am going to buy it..
Can't wait for ingame screenshots though.
This will be the first Valve game that I don't buy.
Fuck DOTA, I want Ep3 :frown:

Good reasons why you're not buying it.
No, it's not my type of game, but I will get it at the release date anyway.
It's Valve, everything they touch becomes gold.
They're starting to piss me off by being so quiet about EP3 :frown:
Anyone who thought this surprise was going to be Episode 3 is an idiot.
We've been hearing about IceFrog's project for months, there wasn't any indication that it was going to be anything other than DOTA related.

What if they're helmets? I'm all for hats if they're helmets that make my hero look badass.

that's because it's so mindbowingly awesome saying anything now about it would immediately put the SPUF in it's entirety into cardiac arrest
If that's how fire looks and acts in-game, then it's a huge improvement to Source.
Those pictures make me wish it was a thirdperson shooter type game.
Brb anal stimulation
This is going to be the first RTS that I might actually be able to stand playing.

That's a good thing

Quite messy though, but don't worry guys When Valve is ready they'll show us. If you haven't learned by now, being a Valve fan means having to wait but the end result is always worth it.
Plus all these engine upgrades are a good sign that EP3 is going to look awesome when it's ready.
Any guesses on prices?
I already am not liking the sound of it simply because it's falling back upon DotA's original mapstyle. One thing I didn't like about it was the lack in variety in the gameplay since it was just 1 straight lined up map. And denying just sounds awful, haven't tried a DotA game with it but it sounds more like an open opportunity to grief rather than a gameplay tactic. Things like this are why I liked LoL much more than DotA.
Not only that but the fact they're probably making this a game you buy rather than free to play and the fact that this game is getting a graphics kick-up, meaning my crappy comp most likely won't run it. Too many reasons not to play this.
[QUOTE=A Noobcake;25380354]A RTS game in Source?
This is going to be laggy if they don't optimize the engine first.[/QUOTE]
You're right. Source, an engine misunderstood and criticised for not updating to today's high standard and in the process making it a resource guzzling bitch, needs to be optimised.
Thanks for your input.

And gaming graphics in general, if it was good enough to make that type of fluid rendering possible in real-time on computers they would get awards for it.
Too bad HoN will become irrelevant and people will still play LoL
I'm not a fan of strategy games that are multiplayer only, but I'm sure the game will be decent.
Yeah right. I'll just wait for other Valve games and skip this one.
