HW2's 10th Birthaday

Post by IGBC on Mon May 20, 2013 8:28 pm

Homeworld 2 was released on September 16th, 2003.

By my reckoning that makes Homeworld's 10th Birthday on September 16th, 2013.


I think we should do something as a community* to celebrate our beloved, poorly balanced game. That has outlived so many others.
While the restrictions of virtual space remove the option of having a party, we can do something like a tournament, or multiplayer interactive campaign. (Anyone who's played in a war-hammer campaign will get the idea.)


*The dev team should do something independently to celebrate HW2 as a game engine.

Sounds cool. I can see the tournament happening, and building a map with 600 spawn points won't be a problem either. That way we can make a party. xD Just make the mod not build ANYthing. God, this sounds cool. Having a whole freaking bunch of people in just 1 map...

Too bad the multiplayer tab will not allow more than 6 players, huh?

HW2 deserves some kind of birthday party — surviving for 10 years is quite a feat for a game, definitely ought to be celebrated!

Now the big question lurks.... How the freaking heck are we going to get all of the community in 1 game? xD
I'd love to see it happen, but It's just impossible, huh?

Getting them on one client is difficult enough as it is.

I never said one game, I said a tournament, as in with a ranking board, spread out over a number of matches. As for the dev's: there are 6 of us that are active, which works out nicely

6 players a game appears to be a hard coded limit.
