Men of War was one of my favorite RTS games. Now the same devs are crowdfunding the modern-day sequel: http://www.digitalmindsoft.eu/products/call-to-arms . It goes without saying that I'd like to see it get funded. The series has never really had a very well-balanced, competitive multiplayer, but the realism and environmental destruction combined with the direct control mechanic has distinguished it from mainstream RTS offerings and made it a lot of fun to play casually. The coop was always enjoyable too, overcoming ridiculous odds and turning the enemy's resources against them.
