Custom DescriptionMMO Attack has covered some great strategy games in the past. Early this month we tackled the Top 10 Best Tactics MMOs, and before that we handled the Top 10 Best MOBAs. Sadly, those two lists were fit to a specific genre. Many of the games you will see making another appearance on this list, but there are also a few new additions that couldn’t be ignored when discussing online strategy games.

End of Nations is a MMORTS game in a time when it is hard to find a great RTS title. The game’s story starts with a totalitarian regime taking over the world after a major crash of the world?s economy. Build armies with your friends, or against your friends in this free to play title made by Petroglyph Games.
The place where End of Nations really shines is it?s MMO side. There are a lot of different scaled battles, that include up to 28 vs 28 player matches and get as intimate as 1v1 heart pounding standoffs. The large scale matches with 56 different armies battling against one another is confusing and yet somehow satisfying once you understand the battlefield. With multiple different kinds of troops, End of Nations is a controlled chaos that will fascinates any RTS fan.
There are also a ton of different kinds of play modes. These modes include a different PvP battles like Base Domination, Base Assault, Domination and Last Man Standing that are full of strategic madness. There is also a few modes that are co-op though. These game modes, Campaign and Survival, have teams of four players grouping up and holding their bases against full frontal assaults by large tank like enemies. Working together is the only way to do these missions successfully and any weak link will punish the whole team in a significant way.
It?s good to see a real attempt at a MMORTS that isn’t based around paying to play. There are certain elements that remind you that End of Nations is a free 2 play game, but the experience is enjoyable. If you love large scale battles, or just love RTS games in general, take a peek at End of Nations today.
