"An underdeveloped subgenre seemed to provide the most opportunity and the least market risk to a fledgling design house. The result of Lockpick Entertainment's market research? An MMORTS, a type of game appealing to a gamer who likes playing Civilization, Warcraft 3, or Dawn of War-style games, but has a online itch that multiplayer mode simply can't scratch."
