Strategy games require players to think ahead and make tactical decisions to achieve victory. These games often involve managing resources, building structures, and commanding units to defeat opponents or achieve objectives. Some popular sub-genres of strategy games include real-time strategy (RTS), turn-based strategy, and 4X (explore, expand, exploit, and exterminate) games.
In RTS games, players make decisions in real-time while managing resources and building structures, and commanding units to engage in battles against opponents. Turn-based strategy games, on the other hand, allow players to take turns to make decisions, which gives them more time to plan their moves carefully. 4X games typically involve exploring and expanding a territory, exploiting resources, and exterminating enemies to become the dominant power in the game world.
In online communities focused on strategy games, players often share tips and strategies, discuss game mechanics and updates, and form teams or clans to compete against other players or groups. These communities may also include guides, tutorials, and forums where players can ask for help or advice. Additionally, strategy games may also have esports competitions, where professional players compete for prizes and prestige.
