What does RTS mean?

    Need to know RTS means? Well you’re in luck today! I happen to be fluent in leet speak!

    Real-time strategy (RTS) is a sub-genre of strategy video game which does not progress incrementally in turns.

    In a RTS, as in other wargames, the participants position and maneuver units and structures under their control to secure areas of the map and/or destroy their opponents’ assets. In a typical RTS, it is possible to create additional units and structures during the course of a game. This is generally limited by a requirement to expend accumulated resources. These resources are in turn garnered by controlling special points on the map and/or possessing certain types of units and structures devoted to this purpose. More specifically, the typical game of the RTS genre features resource gathering, base building, in-game technological development and indirect control of units.
