no bases really man, ive betad it at most u have like 2-3 structures in your base and a few scattered round the map that dont do much. and i missed the part where rts's turned into a home renovation game.
No base building!? This is the first time I've heard this, that sucks I like building my base. I hope they make a demo so I can see what this is like now before I buy it.
Can't wait for this! pre-ordered the special edition from GAME, comes with 4 special edition in-game items and the Novamarines chapter of the Space Marines (blue and white quatared colour scheme).
This is going to be great. I merge between Company of heroes and Dawn of War. In my mind the two best RTS games Relic has done. A merger between the two play styles (At least for me) Is going to be nothing but good. Now if only i could get SS Space Marines.
Too bad no space marine chapter -chosing option. What about rellic would show might of Ultramarines in this game (or expansion). Or battle-brothers of Salamanders? Crimson fists on edge of distinction? Fast white scars?
Honestly I'm not too impressed by this game so far, they've basically took out most of the factions and left us with the largely boring ones (asides from the Tyranids, they're cool). Why is it always centred around space marines? Imperial Guard are by far the most common forces defending the imperium so why not make it based around Imperial Guard? They're much more interesting than space marines! I'll have to play a demo before I consider buying this because at the moment I don't want to forced to pay hand over fist for all the other races like they did with the first Dawn of War all over again, it just won't be worth the money especially considering the dullness of the subject matter: yet more space marines... big whoop!
It looks great. Big fan of the earlyer DoW games. No more basebuilding? Seriously? Got to try a Demo of the game before spending money on it for sure. But looks great indeed but never knows how the game is before its played.
Good on them for making it no longer base building, seems people don't see some benifit out of it... All action. No more waiting until you have upgraded your HQ to get that tank you've always wanted or need, no more building Waaagh! towers so u can mob your enemies base, pick what you want and go for it. Plus why do you want to have to gain resources to build a building then waiting ot get more resources to get the unit?, i have no problem with it but games sometimes suit having nothing like that and go for all out WAR! (which is what warhammer is about is it not?). As for the factions, i think the've done good, trying new things (tyrinids which people have babbled on about (tho i like them)) and when they get it, they'er upset that their Tau aren't in it or no Necrons... give them a break, if they could please all, there better than evey politician and god out there.
bah who needs cover- i'll just drown the enemy in the blood of my guardsmen and crush them beneath the treads of my leman russ.
i hope the Tau fraction exist in this sequel and have great equipment and capable doing great skill too(really love Shas O' Kais the Tau commander)..awesome.."FOR THE GREATER GOOD"
''Praise the emperor, For thout Space Marines of thiy Blood Ravins chapter, the guardians of Terra have returned.'' I play Warhammer 40k and have a Blood Ravins company on the rise and I gust love the history of it all. If you are a war monger then all forms of warhammer are for you. G,W rules!!!!!!!!!
i dont really care what engine they use...as long as it has my beloved orks.....WAAAAAAGH!!!...(oh i like the tau too)....so i gues i shudd say ....WAAAAAGH!!! FOR THE GREATER GOOD!
i think id pay $50 for changing dow from gamespy to relic online alone, much less all the other cool stuff. I just hope the coh cover system gets an overhaul.
Looks awesome but this game unlike the other dawn of War seems really focused on Infantry not really tanks I dont think this one will have clashes between avatars and Daemons like in the last ones but hey this looks like it is going to kick ass so hey what the hell but if this is the case I will miss using the land raider to rip up defenses :(
Finally their day has come. I am tired as well of the RTS retreads of rinse and repeat. They did a great job with Dawn of War I series escaping the whole resource management bs and focus on combat, then later added Risk like elements to the campaign map. Our only complaint was we wanted more stuff like the Tyranids for example. Hehe. This game needs to succeed it needs to kick the pants off the competition and give them out there a reason why they need to adapt and grow. Yes we could all easily make comments like "we are getting a complete game not that 1/3 junk someone else is trying to snake oil sell us etc." So so far so good, I just can't wait to see what the devs will deliver with Dawn of War II
this game is just different from the typical RTS games. just think. some of the gameplays are adapt from company of heroes. the units which equipped with hi-tech weapons are double fun to play. and best of all, it has a RPG structure! i mean, what can you ask MORE? i'm gettin tired with the same old 'build', 'make more troops' and 'attack'. all i can say is: THIS GAME WOULD ROCK RTS WORLD!
starcraft better be prepared ... blizzard and their 2000 years release ... they may get bypass by this game, looks awesome
Well, I believe that what they're going for is a more personal feel. When every member of your unit is named, you're bound to feel more attached to those men, and you'll become more involved and immersed in the game as a result.
SC2 looks crappy for my blood... DoW 2 rocks! i loved the first DoW and expansions.. Man this looks good...cant wait!!
From the looks of it, this will lift up the disappointment with the last expansion for the first dawn of war. This will rock some serious booteeeeey!
Cant wait - looks way better than the previous 4. Its graphics look like they got he much needed improvement they needed.
It's good to see so many positive comments on this game. I'm as big a fan of the series as they get and I too am so excited for this game I can hardly stand the wait until it comes out. Looks great, the destructible terrain elements from CoH added to it's already great cover scheme will make for one terrific experience.
GAH! sucks i cant play this game, im sure its gonna require pixel shader 3 and im still on 2 lol. This game is gonna once again probaly be the best rts game of 09 its so obvious. They added elements from CoH and gave it some extra gorey effects/kills so its gonna have more tactical elements to it while still being as bloody as its always been....CANT WAIT @_@b!
