->'''STRATEGY REDEFINED'''

''[[http://endofnations.com/en/ End of Nations]]'' is a [[MassivelyMultiplayerOnlineRolePlayingGame MMO]][[RealTimeStrategy RTS]] originally developed by Petroglyph Games, the same studio that produced ''UniverseAtWar'' and ''StarWars: EmpireAtWar'', and published by Trion Worlds, who also made and published ''{{Rift}}''.

The game itself is much different from the previous games of Petroglyph. ''End of Nations'' is online, and it's free-to-play. But what makes it unique is that it can support up to '''[[UpToEleven 56]]''' players in an online match, so you better make sure you have a good, constant internet connection.

The game is set TwentyMinutesIntoTheFuture where a financial crisis has cause the collapse of governments all over the world. In the midst of the anarchy the United Nations steps up to restore order, and takes over the world as the Order of Nations. By then the Order quickly imposes a totalitarian control over the world, with the military force to back it up. The player then chooses a faction to play, either as the [[TheFederation Liberation]] [[LaResistance Front]] or the [[AntiHero Shadow]] [[YourTerroristsAreOurFreedomFighters Revolution]] as they fight against the [[TheEmpire Order]] [[BigBad of]] [[UnitedNationsIsASuperpower Nations]], as well as each other.

First announced in 2010, the game entered alpha testing in 2011 was slated to be released by 2013. However, after the conclusion of closed beta tests in November 2012 and internal re-organization of Trion Worlds that saw the departure of Petroglyph, the game went on hiatus for several months before re-emerging as a "tactical MOBA" in August. Virtually no developer activity occurred since September 2013 and as of March 2014, the game is as good as cancelled.

Has a [[Characters/EndOfNations character sheet]].
-----
!This game provides examples of:

* ZeroPercentApprovalRating: The entire Order of Nations is this to the playable factions.
* AceCustom: The faction-specific Heroes use modified/upgraded versions of regular units.
* ActionGirl: The female hero units, and some of the regular units have female pilots, like the Stalker.
* AllYourBaseAreBelongToUs: The Order of Nations in the backstory. They also do this in some missions.
* AmazonBrigade: Can be invoked if you bring a company consisting of nothing but female-piloted units.
* AncientConspiracy: The Order of Nations was apparently formed long ago, shortly after WorldWarTwo.
* AristocratsAreEvil: Just look at the names of the Order of Nations' infantry units (Duke, Baron, Count, etc.)
* ArmorIsUseless: Can be invoked when you use the Dreadfire tank's drone swarm ability which removes enemy damage resistances.
* AttackDrone: The Shadow Revolution have lots of these, primarily the Wraith class.
* AuthorityEqualsAsskicking[=/=]AsskickingEqualsAuthority: All the leaders and the hero units.
* BadassArmy: Every side.
* BackFromTheDead: The Chaos Drone is capable of reassembling themselves after dying once, to make up for its insignificant armor. The Phantom class has a support power that allows affected units to revive shortly if they are destroyed within a limited time frame.
* BeehiveBarrier: All shields are this, with the Asgardian Dome support power being a larger version.
* {{BFG}}: The Ravager Stationary Platform is basically this pinned to the ground, acting as a fixed long range artillery turret. Ravagers, the mobile version, also fit this trope, as do many other units.
* BigBad: The Order of Nations.
* BoringYetPractical: The Gorgon tank has little health, short range, and the smallest DPS in the game, but its attacks do area of effect damage and jam the enemy weapons. A group of these are capable of negating the attacks of a whole enemy company, while the rest of your team gets free shots at them. It's ability qualifies too; a slow, short range EMP shot that shuts down enemies in an area for a couple of seconds. Can be continually refreshed to pin down a group of tanks while they receive whatever pounding your teammates have prepared, with no chance of escape.
* BribingYourWayToVictory: You can buy credits using real money, which can be used in place of wealth (in-game money earned from missions) for purchasing units and also to buy EXP and wealth-gaining boosts from completing missions. Keep in mind that these advantages are fairly minor, and that the developers strive to make the game as balanced as possible for everyone, both for free players and paying players.
* CastFromHitpoints: The Aesir has a special ability called "Serum X" which greatly increases its speed and attack at the cost of 1,600 hitpoints.
* ColdSniper: Shadow Revolution Stalker infantry, which talk in a whispering, seductive female voice.
* ConstructAdditionalPylons: Averted. You don't need to construct buildings to build units, and turrets are only supplementary for defense.
* CrapsackWorld: The entire world is torn apart by a war, and there seems to be no safe place to hide.
* CripplingOverspecialization: The Lightning Generator deals extreme damage against air units, but can't defend itself against ground attacks and has little health.
* CriticalExistenceFailure: Most units fight at full performance even when they are heavily damaged, unless they are debuffed.
* CriticalHit: Will pop up once in a while every time a unit is attacked. Most units start with little-to-no base critical hit chance, but can be geared with precision mods, and some units get critical hits by upgrading to higher marks or activating special abilities and support powers.
* DamageReduction: In the form a of a percentage reduction, it comes in two flavors: Direct damage reduction and AreaOfEffect damage reduction. DamageOverTime damage affect hitpoints directly, and some weapons and abilities can reduce the armor or [[ArmorPiercing ignore it completely]].
* DarkIsEvil: The Order of Nations units have a dark-grey color scheme.
* DeathOfAThousandCuts: Although extremely difficult to do, it is possible to destroy a Panzer Hulk using raw force and without the aid of special weapons.
* DeflectorShields: The Patriot class have numerous powers and abilities that grant these to their units. Said shields act as extra health and are affected by the units natural resistances and weakneses. They all have a limited duration, and some attacks and abilities are able to ignore them or completely remove them from the units.
* DualModeUnit: Many units have abilities that change their attack types, enable/disable special attacks or grant enhanced stats.
* TheEmpire: The Order Of Nations.
* EnemyMine: While the Liberation Front and Shadow Revolution usually don't agree with each other just short of shooting each other on sight, there are some missions which they cooperate to take down the Order of Nations.
* EvilLaugh: Many units, such as the Ravager and Defiant vehicles after they killed a unit.
* {{Expy}}:
** Both in gameplay and appearance, the Liberation Front is based on the [[CommandAndConquer Global Defense Initiative]], while the Shadow Revolution is based on the Brotherhood of Nod, complete with [[HellBentForLeather black/grey leather uniforms]] and shiny goggles. Justified since most of the crew in Petroglyph Games used to work at Westwood Studios (Creators of C&C) before it shut down.
** Many units too, like the [[CommandAndConquerTiberianSun Harpy]]. The Oblivion Drone appears to be the [[{{Terminator}} T-1 or HK-Tank]] rigged with a LightningGun. The now removed Yellow Jacket unit also looks like the HK-Drone.
* FactionCalculus: Liberation Front as Powerhouse, Shadow Revolution as Subversive, Order of Nations as Balanced.
** If you count the five factions model when we separate the playable subfactions: Spartan is Powerhouse, Patriot is MagicKnight, Order of Nations is Balanced, Phantom is Subversive and Wraith is The Horde.
* FakeInTheHole: One of the Wraith's ability, making it appear to the enemy that a superweapon strike is aimed on that location.
* FluffyTheTerrible: That Panzer Hulk you meet on one of the co-op maps that gives your mission control an OhCrap moment? It's called ''Peacebringer''.
* FogOfWar: Prevents you from casting your support powers there, other than the obvious not being able to see your enemies.
* FragileSpeedster: Many units fall under this, mostly in the Shadow Revolution arsenal.
* FrickinLaserBeams: The Lancer and the Count, from the Order of Nations, use continual laser beams to slowly overheat units.
* DeathFromAbove: Various methods, like the Bombing Run superweapon.
* GatlingGood: Guardians from the Spartan class carry a humongous gatling gun the size of a pick up truck. It so heavy that they have to stop and deploy stabilizers to use it at full power, even when they already are in a [[MiniMecha big mechasuit]].
* GlassCannon:
** Certain units on each side have massive firepower but little armor, like the units of the Phantom subfaction of the Shadow Revolution.
** Also the [=UGVs=] on Ice Breaker, which deal a lot of damage but are quickly destroyed.
* GovernmentConspiracy: How the Order of Nations formed.
* GradualGrinder: The Shadow Revolution can use drone swarms (Wraith) or viruses (Phantom) to slowly whittle down their enemies' health.
* GreyAndGrayMorality[=/=]NotSoDifferent: Other than the Order of Nations who clearly are the BigBad of the series, each of the two playable factions think that the other faction has gone too extreme in their ways. The Liberation Front think that the Shadow Revolution would just displace the Order so that they could rule in their place, while the Shadow Revolution view the Liberation Front to be repeating the past mistakes that made Order of Nations to be what it is the first place.
* GunsAkimbo: The Aesir infantry unit of the Liberation Front.
--> "''[[ShoutOut And now we will throw in a second machine gun]] [[VinceOffer absolutely free!]]''"
* HealingFactor: The Oblivion Drone uses this to accomplish its role as a tanking unit, in conjunction with his already high armor.
* HellBentForLeather: The Shadow Revolution's uniforms are comprised mostly of black and grey leather.
* HeroUnit: All sides have them, though the Order of Nations have the boss vehicles.
* HitAndRunTactics: The Wraith class of the Shadow Revolution revolves around this.
* HoldTheLine: One map called "[[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Hold The Line]]" lets you defend a base from Order of Nations attacks for as long as possible
* HollywoodAcid: Units of the Shadow Revolution have many acid based attacks. Also the Liberation Front's Hydra.
* {{Invisibility}}: The Phantom subclass of the Shadow Revolution specializes in this:
* InvisibilityCloak: Several methods, like using the Shadowmaker's special ability to cloak all units (except itself) nearby, but renders it immobile. The Phantom class also has the "Vanish" class specialization power, in which all units disappear for a few seconds and cannot be damaged nor detected, and after that they gain Improved Stealth for at least 20 seconds.
* InvisibilityFlicker: Should a stealthed unit be detected.
* KillItWithFire: The Liberation Front has the Vulcan flame tank. There is also the Order of Nations' Liquidator flame tank.
* KillSat: The Shadow Revolution's Phantom features an ability called Orbital Laser Hack. This implies The Order of Nations has them too.
* LaResistance: The Liberation Front, and, to some extent, the Shadow Revolution.
* LaserSight: The Phantom class specialization power "Laser Precision" grants laser sights that greatly increases damage and critical hit rate.
* LastStand: A map called "[[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Last Stand]]" lets you hold off waves of Order of Nations units while trying to make the opposing faction lose first.
* LargeHam: Many units have a hammed up voice.
--> '''Titan crews''': "We're gonna keep fighting! '''IS THAT CLEAR?!'''"
--> '''Shredder crews''': "'''BOOM [[SayingSoundEffectsOutLoud PSH!]]'''"
* LightningBruiser:
** Combine the Spartan Rolling Thunder power with their heavy, hard hitting tanks and you get and extremely fast unstoppable force that can steam roll over most Shadow Revolution entrenchments, if only for a short time.
** Titans are already a bit of this, very hard with good damage and decent speed too.
** Helios vehicles can switch from fast and hard units with no attack to [[MightyGlacier Mighty Glaciers]] and vice versa using their ability, making them lightning bruisers in the hands of the skilled.
* LightningGun: Fury, Chaos Drones, and Oblivion Drones.
* MadeOfExplodium[=/=]SelfDestructMechanism: The Dreadfire tank is made to detonate its on board explosives when destroyed (don't worry, these things are [[AttackDrone unmanned]]).
* MagneticWeapons:
** The Shiva Tank of the Liberation Front.
** The Magnetic Resonance support power slows the enemy in an area and deals damage to them at the end of the duration.
** The Indra [=MagnoShield=] structure creates magnetic fields around friendly units that act as DeflectorShields, protecting them for a limited time and damage amount.
* MacrossMissileMassacre:
** The Colossus Tank has a special ability which allows it to fire a continuous stream of missiles at a designated area at the cost of having to become immobile.
** Badger vehicles count too.
** Also the Vulture helicopters, which can fire a salvo of missiles at up to four different targets at the same time.
* TheMedic[=/=]HollywoodHealing: Chirons for Liberation Front, Honey Bees for Shadow Revolution, and Visionaries for the Order of Nations. [[ShootTheMedicFirst You know the drill...]]
* MeleeATrois: the Order of Nations vs. the Liberation Front vs. the Shadow Revolution.
* MightyGlacier: The Liberation front focuses on this tactic, especially the Spartan class, which have the hardest and strongest heavy tanks, balanced by their lack of numbers and speed.
* MilitaryMashupMachine: The picture above shows a '''MASSIVE''' tank (called the Panzer Hulk, appropriately) which is basically a Land Battleship built by the Order of Nations. They have a smaller variation called Assault Panzers, which are somewhat easier and cheaper to produce.
* MoreDakka: Plenty of units have more-than-adequate firepower.
* NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast: Stalker, Shredder, Ravager, Fury, Vulture, Marauder, Wraith, Phantom...yeah, the Shadow Revolution seems to enjoy using this trope. Considering that they diverged form the Order of Nations, which uses names like Prosecutor, Liquidator, Eraser, Negator, Obliterator and Dictator, it's easy to see where the trend comes from.
* NanoMachines: The Shadow Revolution uses these extensively for different purposes, among them: [[HollywoodHealing Healing]], [[BeehiveBarrier shielding units]], [[AntiArmor reducing enemy defenses]], [[DamageOverTime slowly damaging them]] and [[BackFromTheDead instantly reconstructing fallen troops]].
* NoCampaignForTheWicked: The Order of Nations is not playable.
* NukeEm[=/=]SlapOnTheWristNuke: Some maps give the option to purchase and deploy multiple nukes on the field. Using them on the enemy army can cause a enormous amount of casualities [[SplashDamage depending on the distance]], but some units can have so much DamageReduction that not even '''''four''''' nukes at point blank will terminate them. Liberation Front has even access to abilities that nullify all damage to their units in an area for a limited time.
* OminousLatinChanting: Some of the music tracks, like the Main Theme.
* OneWorldOrder: The Order of Nations is the de facto world government, while the Shadow Revolution hopes to replace them in that position.
* PintSizedPowerhouse: Certain light units belonging to the Order of Nations have more health and damage than even ''Spartan tanks''.
* PoweredArmor[=/=]MiniMecha: Most infantry units.
* RedBaron: All of the Heroes have badass nicknames, like Hellbent and TheJudge.
* RidiculouslyFastConstruction: Turrets are instantly flown into a designated area by helicopter and only take a few extra seconds to set up before becoming combat-ready. Don't place them in the middle of a firefight though.
* ReligiousAndMythologicalThemeNaming: The Liberation Front units are named after Greek mythology (Titan, Ares, Cyclops, Colossus, Mars) and some others (Ragnarok, Abaddon, Vulcan, etc).
* RPGElements: You can level up and acquire mods to gear up your units.
* ShockAndAwe: Some of the Shadow Revolution's units have electrical based attacks.
* ShotgunsAreJustBetter: The Shadow Revolution's Reaper and Slayer units are armed with what are essentially six-barreled [[{{BFG}} oversized]] shotguns.
* SkillPointReset: You can reset research points that you have invested in.
* SpikesOfVillainy: The Shadow Revolution seems to like them. Strangely averted by the Order of Nations --who technically are the bad guys-- although they do make use of hedge-clearing spikes on some of their tanks.
* SpiritualSuccessor: To the ''CommandAndConquer'' series, since the developers (Petroglyph) consists largely of former Westwood (creators of C&C) employees after their studio is closed down by EA.
* SupportPower:
** Type I: You can spend research points to unlock support powers every time you level up and get one free instance (unlimited uses but with a cooldown and consumes tactical resources). You can also spend wealth (or credits) to buy more of these instances.
** Type II[=/=]III: Capturing key points in a map can grant access to superweapons like nuclear strikes, bombing runs, and EMP blasts (which also cost tactical resources and have a cooldown timer like Type I above).
* TankGoodness:
** The Liberation Front, especially the Spartan subfaction, have very strong tanks.
** The Order of Nation's '''HUMONGOUS''' Panzer Hulk land battleships (see picture and MilitaryMashupMachine above).
* TheRevolutionWillNotBeVilified: Subverted. Both the Shadow Revolution and even the Liberation Front are [[GreyAndGrayMorality grey]] at best.
* TheRevolutionWillNotBeCivilized: The Shadow Revolution is only ''slightly'' better than the Order of Nations, if not just as bad (justified, in that they they ''were'' the Order until they split off). Meanwhile, the Liberation Front put on the NostalgiaFilter when it came to Earth before the Order came along and never ever took it off.
* UtopiaJustifiesTheMeans: Was the rallying cry of the Order of Nations before they began to care more about their own power than improving the world. The Shadow Revolution has since taken up the banner.
* UnitedNationsIsASuperpower: The Order of Nations grew out of the UN.
* UnitsNotToScale: Averted, since the infantry are actually in [[MiniMecha mini mechas]]. In fact, the game's units are made to appropriately scale with the surrounding landscape and buildings, even the '''MONSTROUS''' Panzer Hulks.
* UrbanWarfare: Two defense maps, Hold the Line and Last Stand, are located in the middle of devastated cities.
* WellIntentionedExtremist: The Order of Nations starts as this, but turned into authoritarian dictatorship later. The Shadow Revolution was once the part of the Order that retained its original goals.
* YouRequireMoreVespeneGas: You acquire "Tactical Resources" over time, which can be increased by capturing resource points on a map.
* ZergRush: The Wraith class specializes on this, and one of their units, the Chaos Drone, is specifically designed for this purpose, able to reconstruct itself after being destroyed once. The Order of Nations is also fond on this tactic, even when their units may be individually stronger than the players units.
