End of Nations - Frequently Asked Questions
1. Game Overview
What is End of Nations?
End of Nations brings the Real-time Strategy and Massively Multiplayer Online games together for a gaming experience that is a revolutionary leap for the RTS genre.
What is a MMORTS?
A Massively Multiplayer Online Real-time Strategy (MMORTS) game combines the action and strategy of the RTS genre with the massive persistent world, character progression, and individual achievement of a traditional MMO.
How is End of Nations a Massively Multiplayer Online (MMO) game?
End of Nations embraces the "massive" in MMO by giving RTS gamers the chance to play alongside scores of other commanders, taking on missions, campaigns and battles too immense to be tackled by any one player. End of Nations also incorporates individual progression or "character development" usually found in RPGs. Choose a Commander class and play the role you want in combat, earning experience from both solo and cooperative battles. This battlefield experience is necessary for unlocking new units and gaining more powerful abilities. As your Commander advances, your armies can venture around the globe for even greater challenges against The Order of Nations forces.
How is End of Nations a Real-time Strategy (RTS) Game?
Strategy gamers will immediately recognize many traditional RTS game play elements, such as moment-to-moment unit management, where knowing how and when to engage and utilize specific units can mean the difference between victory and defeat. End of Nations also features strategic unit selection, which gives players the opportunity to analyze the strengths and weaknesses of their battlefield assets. Most importantly, End of Nations features hard-hitting, core RTS gameplay that RTS fans have come to know and love.

Are there classes in End of Nations like in other MMOs?
Players start in End of Nations by choosing a specific Commander Class. These Commander Classes offer different abilities, combat-tactic specialties, and other strategic advantages in gameplay. Each Class excels in a different combat style on the battlefield, so players who want to undertake major encounters will benefit from assembling groups with a range of complementary Commander Classes.
As a player, what exactly am I leveling in End of Nations?
As with many MMO games, you will be leveling your Commander class inside of the game, not your individual units. As your Commander advances, new powers and abilities become available to enhance your tactical capabilities.
Will there be Player vs. Player combat in End of Nations?
End of Nations has a robust and exciting PvP gameplay system. Players can participate in a wide variety of PvP events, missions, and open combat areas across the world.
What exactly is a “points per unit" load-out system?
One of the most important things to deliver in a new RTS experience is a relatively balanced playing field. End of Nations will deliver a battlefield experience that caters to new recruits and veterans alike, particularly on PvP maps.
Each unit in your army will have an attached point-value associated with it based on its overall strengths, weaknesses, and abilities. Every battlefield around the world will have a fixed point-value attached to that map, which all Commanders must plan for. Each player will have to mix and match their unit collections to stay below the point cap on a selected map. This selection process is called a player "load-out". The system allows for a high degree of unit flexibility for Commanders, while still restricting each player's army to roughly the same strength, keeping the game balanced.
Will there be crafting or trading in End of Nations?
End of Nations offers in-depth Manufacturing and Trade Skills systems . Raw materials can be gathered from a variety of different sources, including combat looting, missions, storefronts, and even other players.
By learning and advancing different Trade Skills, you will be able to refine or combine raw materials into finished combat vehicles, special ammunition, repair kits, and many other valuable types of equipment for use in your armies -- or even for sale on the global market.
Will there be player guilds or clans in End of Nations?
Absolutely. The game will offer a comprehensive guild system that will be accessible for all player organizations both large and small.
