Hey guys! So I was thinking about strategy games out there - both mobile and PC, and I was thinking about how many 'strategy games' can be played without even engaging in the strategy elements of the game - yet people can still progress very far in the game. I was wondering what people thought are TRULY HIGH LEVEL STRATEGY GAMES!
Distant World Universe is tough, but truly pays off in the end. Some people find the (Gary Grigsby) series to be tough, but personally I find it to be fairly straightforward as long as you are somewhat familiar with the actual idea of divisions, brigades etc.
I think warbarons would be perfect for you. It's a bit like distance chess and entirely focuses on the strategy elements. There is no grinding and no way to bring benefits from game to game. So it's about skill, not who has collected the best gear or spent the most time leveling. It's free too. http://www.warbarons.com
