I like the Universe of the first 3 games the best so I'd rather it be set there. I wouldn't complain if a new setting was used, though.

I never played Dark Conflict, but wasn't that much more darker and depressing than the original universe? The colorfulness and cartoonish look of the first games seemed so out of place for a game about war.

Yeah, it's the darker one. I still enjoyed it, but I prefer the light-hearted atmosphere of the first 3 games. However, I did enjoy the gameplay tweaks of Days of Ruin the most.

A new universe with more serious tone akin to that of DoA. Then have the crazy amounts of content from Dual Strike and we have a winner.

AW fan here, there's nothing wrong with the colorful and lighthearted approach of AW 1, 2 and Dual Strike, but I quite enjoyed the darker and bleaker story and visuals of Days of Ruin. The games are about war and can get pretty punishing too if you make even one wrong move at some parts, and because of this I feel the bleaker tones fit the game play more.

I would love a Days of Ruin sequel to 3DS with an upgrade of graphics (improved battle sequences, nicer looking grids and environments, etc etc).

DoR "darkness" ruined the game for me. The fact it tried to be more "mature/gritty" was terrible. The game play itself/rebalancing was great. But going through the story was a chore and it was laughable at best.

AW was never a "gritty" war strategy game. Part of the charm of the serious was its comedic/light hearted take on war.

If I wanted to play a "dark" war strat game I have tons of options across multiple platforms that do that specific theme justice. AW wasn't and will never be that game

Great idea too

Personally, I don't care as long as they keep the massively improved gameplay from AW4.

The style is a taste thing, I enjoyed both.

That being said, AW is probably dead forever. No waifus, my units and levelling up to bypass strategy to give the series the mass appeal to sell millions of copies.

It's gotta be in the same style as the first three games. The whole Wars series has always been this bright colorful series and is not supposed to be too serious.

Those results are bizarre. If you count up the opinions in non-poll threads about a new AW, most people claim to prefer DoR/DC.
