No game can deliver quite the adrenaline rush that an MMORTS can.  Real time strategy games just have that faster-paced nature (and in some cases a smaller learning curve) that we have come to expect and love about strategy games. It’s that ability to make sound decisions under the constant pressure of time and the enemy that keeps myself coming back to MMORTS games again and again.

I’ve created a top 10 list of the best free MMORTS and strategy games so you can give them all a try in one place and not have to worry about scouring the internet to find the best ones.  As I said, all these games are free to play and i’ve included a link under each description that will take you right to the game’s login page.  Be sure to check back often as I may update it to portray the newest strategy games.

    Some of these are NOT RTS’s (including number 1). They are MMORPG’s. Please know what the actual genre includes before making lists that make you look dumb and frustrate people looking for actual RTS’s.
