5 Other Online Games Where Warcraft Players Can Use Their Strategy Skills


Warcraft is such a densely complex game that is full of nuance. Players have to be skilled in a lot of different ways including being able to formulate and follow through with a specific strategy.

We all know the sorts of things that you need to master if you are going to get to a high level of WoW. For instance, even something such as farming dense hide can be a tricky pursuit and something that players have to spend a lot of time learning about. It is this attention to detail that makes Warcraft players great at certain other games, too. We’ve listed some games where these strategic skills might come in handy below.


Poker is an appealing option for a lot of people who are good at WoW, not least of all because it may represent an opportunity to win money (if you are good at it). There are a few varieties of poker, but one stands out as the most popular. This Texas Holdem guide can show you all of the basics of playing the card game, and what it takes to get good at it. You first need to understand all of the rules of the game, the different hands, and terms like “blinds”. If you are into poker we recoment:,

Then, it is all about building your strategy and your risk management as well as starting to analyze the behaviors of your opponents.

Age of Empires

Age of Empires is another popular game that has been enjoyed by PC gamers for over 20 years. It has seen something of a resurgence in recent years, not least because of the release of Age of Empires IV and the fact that some of the older varieties of the game have been ported to Xbox.

Many different skills overlap with Warcraft. The basic premise of the game is that you start with your small village or fortress with a few different villagers, who can start to build, farm, and create the ideal basis for your army.

Depending on which civilization you play as you will have the ability to create different units to go to war. Though it is generally a basic premise, some more advanced elements of the game help to keep it interesting. Some civilizations have a focus on the navy, some on infantry, and some on farming and building. It is down to you to build a strategy that works for you and to take on either the AI or other players online.


Ok, this won’t be news to many Warcraft players, but those strategy skills can be put to use playing chess. The game has been around since the 15th century, depending on which historians you believe.

It may not be as complex as games like Warcraft, but it is still one of the kings of strategy games, and now you can play online at sites like The best grandmasters spend their whole lives studying this game and can still lose to other players at a similar level. To work out all the different combinations of how a chess game can play out you need to do some maths. There are 10 to the power of 40 moves (that’s just the legal moves) within a chess game.

Europa Universalis

This is an interesting challenge for those who want to put their strategy and management skills to the test. You take on a nation and control its fate from the Middle Ages through to the 19th century.

You’re put in a position to control decisions around armies, economics, and the complex political strategies that can help you to build a huge, successful empire.

It is an interesting game that lets you rewrite history in your unique way, and with so many different approaches you can be the boss of how you want the game to pan out. Take an aggressive approach to war or try to stay on the good side of other countries, it is really up to you.


When the game of Go was invented over 2,000 years ago in ancient China, nobody could have predicted that you’d be able to sit on a laptop and play it no matter where in the world you are based. This strategy game is similar to chess in that it involves pieces on a board (or a virtual board if you are playing an online version). The goal is to take over that board and surround more territory than the person you are pitched up against.

It is another game with endless possibilities, and a need to be focused throughout. The rules are relatively simple but the game itself can get very complicated.


A lot of us know just how addicting Warcraft can be, but once in a while, you might feel like it is time for a change. Playing another type of game online can give you the chance to build your strategy skills and even improve when you sign back into WoW.
