Yeah ur totally right on this we got to annoy them as much as possible right away, maybe an indie gets some hearing on this. But i cant start right away since i am at work XD. So go forth my fellow brothers and sisters in mind and make the word spread.

Btw which developer would u like to do it the most? I think shin'en would do good work in my opinion

Edit: i have send them an e-mail just now, lets see if they react or how they react.

I've posted thread on the Nintendo Enthusiast, Wii U Daily, Player Essence and the Escapist. Havent heard anything from NE yet but its been positive at daily and Player Essence. Escapist has been mildly negative but then again there is a strong anti N bias there.

As for devs well all my favs are gone what with the march of time - I'd say blizzard maybe since getting starcraft on the wii U would be a major coup especially if there was battlenet connectivity.

Anyone know how to get an online petition started?

And thats the problem right there. At least with a PC you can upgrade video card, ram etc. That's all people would need is for people to be running WoW on the Wii U be in the middle of a raid and be lagging out and such. While I am not saying that its a bad idea I am saying that it probably wont happend. MMOs like WoW can run on laptops but its not advise.

I can see an RTS game for the Wii U like Starcraft dont get me wrong but no offense if you are playing WoW with a Xbox controller rather than a mouse and keyboard you shouldn't be playing WoW,

Also just a word of note if you are going to make a petition please put it in your signature around here don't make a new thread about your petition as that is against the rules here.

i assume you've never played a real rts game (for example: wc3, sc:bw, etc.), else you'd know the answer already

Dude you assume wrong

No offense taken but as long as I have fun I think I can play any which way I want to. I play to have fun and using a mapped controller didnt take anything away from the experience - in fact i was very comfortable playing on my 40" while sitting on my couch.

Thanks for the advise on petition I'll keep that in mind.

@saleemra while i dont really think an starcraft port would work on wii u because of the to fast an easy pc control. So as said before a completely new game would be the way to go.

And greart work for spreading the word so far. Hopefully we can achieve a thing. At least it wouldnt be the first time fans made a thing possible *while lookin on xbone

Hey Romeo instead of just saying something cant work why dont you tell us why. Its easy to say it cant work but unless you can back it up it just comes across as kinda pithy.

Oh and if you are looking to make a petition you can google it and a few sites will come up on how to make a petition.

Back to the subject at hand I can see an MMO made for the Wii U, instead of taking an already existing one and porting it. That way it can be tailored to the Wii U specifications. Perhaps maybe a Zelda MMO, or a Metroid RTS.

Although now that I think about it Monster Hunter is similar to an MMO. The only thing that its lacking is a persistent world.

Lol I supose Starcraft is really really fast, it might just not be possible. However a new thing would be cool, my personal fave rts was the first ground control and its something I still play. Though not strictly an RTS I could see something like that working on the touch screen.

I think the big problem that most people that are against the idea is that they are thinking of trying to port a game and figuring out how it would work. If someone wanted to make a successful RTS or MMORPG on a console then you have rework how those genres work. Halo Wars was a great RTS on console but the Wii U gamepad could make RTS gameplay even better

Cant help but agree with you there DefHalan. Ultimately we would want something better then just a port, but things have to start somewhere.

Let's put it this way: an RTS would on the Wii U would work a heck of a lot better than on PS4 or Xbone simply because of the gamepad. As for it actually being as fast-paced and hectic as an RTS on the PC - I don't really think it's possible. But you have to know what you're talking about - RTS means "real time strategy," so games like Civ and XCOMM are out because they're not real time, they're turn-based. RTS applies to stuff like WC3, SC, C&C, AoE, etc. To play those games on any console you'd have to seriously slow down the speed, simplify the menus, and probably cut a whole bunch of units/structures to streamline the whole process.

As for MMOs on Wii U, it's definitely doable. PS3 has had FF XI on it for most of its lifespan, and will now have FF:ARR on it. I play FF:ARR on PC, and I'm already hearing complaints that the console version can't draw nearly the same amount of detail or even numbers of characters on the screen. That's kind of a big deal in an MMO. FF:ARR has sporadic large events that happen out in the field where a limitless number of people can join in: I've heard complaints that the console version goes bonkers during these events and the players can't even tell what's going on.

The only issue I can see stems from never having tried to use a gamepad like that. I don't own a Wii U, but on the DS and 3DS when you tried to use controls and the L trigger with your left hand and stylus with the right, your left fingers extended across the bottom of the touch screen offering support. The gamepad is big, so I think it would be significantly less comfortable trying to do Kid Icarus: Uprising or Metroid Prime Hunters on the Wii U given that method of holding the controller. That said, just putting one hand behind the tablet and going completely touch screen may be a possibility.

I think Starcraft 2 could be ported, as the game is possible to play with the mouse alone. It would be pointless to try multiplayer though, as the game speed would have to be slowed down and that method of control is far less precise.

RTS games with anything else except a Mouse and Keyboard? Maybe for those amateurs but No thank you from me. Not a chance in hell I would want to use a touch screen instead of a mouse and keyboard for RTS games. The pace would have to slow WAY down to accommodate and shortcuts would have to be taken out without the keyboard. Unless it's just a light RTS game meant for casual play I wouldn't mind so much. But putting Starcraft, Command and Conquer, Company of Heroes or anything of that caliber would be ridiculous in my mind.
