I decided to try out this game today, it has a bit of a battlefield feel to it. In basic terms, it is a fps and rts combo. The commander just places buildings on the battlefield and the troops go help build them as well as combat the enemy troops and sometimes capturing territories(depending on the map).

It has four classes: The Rifleman, which is the basic infantry class who has the option of either having an assault rifle, heavy rifle(long range semi auto), or an lmg; the Scout, which is the recon class comes equipped with binoculars and a weapon choice of an accurate or a high damage smg, or a sniper rifle; the Grenadier(the AT and Mortar class); and the Engineer which repairs stuff, builds turrets, and even acts as the medic class.

The game is pretty fun actually, here the website for more info http://www.empiresmod.com/

Edit: Sorry for the bad grammar

This looks rather complex. Does it work on public?

I've played an earlier version of it a few years ago.  I feel like downloading it again to see all the new features and changes.  The mod was also in BF1942, although there empty servers.  How populated are the servers for this mod now?

They're populated enough.

It sounds complex when I looked at the wiki, but when I tried it was pretty simple. Also, what do you mean by: Does it work on public?

Well, you know. Since the commander needs to build the shizznit for the team and do the research to improve their weaponry, past experience tells me that most players being random in public don´t give a rats ass about teamplay. Remember bf2/2142 and their commanders...

Players vote for their commander, but there are morons that do get elected though it is not all the time.

The commander role in the Empires mod and BF2 is different.  I played yesterday and a good amount of players were yelling at the commander with their mics over different things like researching and getting "heavies" since the other team had heavies.  Maybe it was the language barrier because the commander sounded German but was speaking good enough English.

Seeing how Finray revived the GE:S thread, imma revive this one.

Any of you still play this? I DL'ed it yesterday, must say it's pretty fun, especially when you get in the APC with a heavy minigun and rape infantry like no other.

Yeah, I'm in a clan actually which is like 2-3 weeks old now. We're seeking more skilled players and eventually we plan on going against this clan in a scrim.

Forget about updates though, they haven't added any "real" content to the mod for years, even though they still claim they are "working" on air units...

LOL, yeah the Aircraft factory.

Seems like they redid the particle FX, and added lua scripting, so people can make their own vehicles and whatnot...

These days it seems to be 2 servers online in Europe & they are dominated by those "leet" players who just own everything....

I find that I easily can get 2-3 kills in an APC with a minigun, just by raping unaware infantry.

Like they blow your head off from outside the drawdistance with an SMG

Like they spam and own an entire team by exploiting every inch of map design flaws

etc.

Thery need to fix the melee so you can melee on an empty clip instead of reloading.

Brenodi Heavy tank, Brenodi Rifleman(I like their assault rifle the best).

They have a handful of people and they don't have any 3d modelers.

They won't have aircraft for a long time unless some player decides to make a map with them. Empires is quite short on crew and they no longer have modelers
