Hey there, me and my friends love playing RTS games. We've played games from Cossacks to Planetary Annihilation Titans and even Command and Conquer. We gave Halo Wars a try, but it didn't sit right with us for some reason. In any case, I'd love it if some of you guys could suggest a multiplayer RTS game that 2-4 people can play? I've been looking into Warcraft III Reforged, but obviously that isn't out until later this year.

Thanks guys.

Ashes of the Singularity Escalation is pretty solid, and it's super cheap. I wish it had the C&C Generals destruction physics, tho. After 15 years it definitely should.

I'm not sure if World in Conflict servers are still going or not, but that game was incredible.

Check our Ancestors Legacy and Company of Heroes. Smaller more tactical-scale RTS combat

8-Bit Armies/Hordes/Invaders (Very simplistic game but I had a ton of fun when the multiplayer was still active. The three games play together)

Supreme Commander is the pinnacle of the Total Annihilation RTS design. Nothing else comes close.

I never feel the need to find another competitive RTS.

(not to be confused with historical RTS games like Age of Empires, which are fun, but different)
