Tuesday, 29 Jun 2010
A common debate that arises between Rise of the Witch-King players, especially on the official 2.01 patch, involves picked factions. It is well known to any who have played RotWK for some time that players have different opinions of what is lame, imbalanced, unfair, or just generally a thing to...

The Top 5 Worst Imbalances in RotWK - Thorin's Blog

Monday, 31 May 2010
The official 2.01 patch in the Rise of the Witch-king is well known for it's sheer amount of bugs and not to mention, imbalances. It's quite possible there isn't a single faction that can be called entirely balanced as almost every faction has something way too strong or simply too weak. Due to...

Friday, 28 May 2010
Last week's article covered the impact of economy on the real-time strategy genre. This continuation covers how economy affects the game, to what strategies it can lead and what the main focus of the game is. As you all know and as last week's article proved, economy is essential to RTS. It's...

Monday, 10 May 2010
Yep, you heard right. Rushing is for noobs. Why should such a brainless and simple strategy overcome your brilliant setup for a large, upgraded army and well defended base? While you plan ahead and think hard how to come up with a plan to defeat him, the bastard comes along and attacks you...

Turtling - Thorin's Blog

Monday, 3 May 2010
Ah, the infamous concept of turtling. How often have you wanted to just jump right through the screen, into your opponents room to beat the living crap out of him and torture him for hours? OK, that may have been a little bit exaggerated, but you must have felt the frustration of spending hour...

Balance vs. Imbalance - Thorin's Blog

Sunday, 25 Apr 2010
Balance. It's always viewed as something holy and as the ultimate goal for any RTS game to achieve. Imbalances are always viewed as something disgusting, sometimes even criminal. However, a lot of games have imbalances and sometimes quite grave as well, yet people continue to play those games...

Why Unofficial Patches Never Work - Thorin's Blog

Monday, 19 Apr 2010
A lot of games have this problem. You love your game and so does your community, but your developer just doesn't seem to think along the same lines as you do. It's as if your game was just meant as this year's Christmas cash cow and then thrown in the dumpster like an old bicycle. Naturally, in...
