Good RTS?

I'm looking for an RTS that has a linux version that is similar to Warcraft 3/Starcraft, hopefully someone on GOL knows if such a thing exists.

Honestly, there just isn't much like them on Linux.

Dawn of War II and III possibly.

Dawn of War/Company of heroes.

Planetary Annihilation: TITANS is pretty good

Pretty pricey at full price for what it is though, I'd wait for a sale!

Has a nice unquie concept where instead of playing on a flat map, you're playing on a planet which I found made for some interesting gameplay! (oh and did I mention you can blow up planets?)

Edit:

Oh how could I forget Tooth and Tail

This ones very casual rts and I actually play it with a controller of all things, you control a character that basically acts as the mouse pointer I suppose you could say

As someone who isn't massive into RTS I really liked tooth and tail in particular, it might seem abit too casual for the more veteran rts fans but still has alot of depth and strategy involved!

Company of Heroes 2 is a lot of fun. Don't know about Dawn of War.

Northgard is good, the units feel more in line with the War3 Orcs and it has a hero-ish captain unit https://store.steampowered.com/app/466560/Northgard/

There was an engine called Stargus that let you play Starcraft on Linux using the game files from the Windows version.
Not sure if it is being updated anymore.

One of my favorite RTS years ago was Cossacks. Cossacks3 does support linux, I do not have it yet and do not know in what state it is but is there anyone to give an opinion?
