Re: HAHAHAHAHHAHAHA

The thing is if it would have been THAT difficult to simply make DOW III like a DOW II or even return to the DOW I but with better graphics and more polished? It looks like there is at least some desire for HD remakes but I'm guessing that telling investors "we're going to remake a game and pr...

Re: HAHAHAHAHHAHAHA

This thread is mainly tldr, but to the point of "don't celebrate it failing because then they won't make another" is garbage. Things are made because there is demand for them, or perceived demand for them. Relic wholly fucked up on what they thought people wanted, ignored their own hardco...

Re: HAHAHAHAHHAHAHA

I can't guarantee that DOW3 failing is the solution to our problem, but I think it has a greater chance of causing Relic to engage in course correction than us being supportive and giving them our money in the hopes of them doing better. I am pretty sure that if DOW3 had been a success there would ...

Re: "The community" and DOW3

Yes, quiet down Gorb, we need to have this same fucking tired discussion about Steam numbers for the ten thousandth time.

People see the common DNA between RTSs and MOBAs and get confused.

Re: First "real" footage of Eldar - also new planet

Looks neat. Full article here with hero descriptions and unit roster below. Looks like the choice between an earlier game elite hero and a late game super unit is standard. At least that's the pattern evident from what they've shown of SM and Eldar so far. http://www.dualshockers.com/2016/09/23/warh...

Re: Dawn of War 3 EGX Analysis

Having units randomly go invincible (or gain gigantic damage reduction) is just kind of a shitty mechanic IMHO. The only way I'd want to see it implemented is a pre-game toggle that you can set in the lobby, with no invincibility or damage reduction when sync-killing, BUT, units that perform a sync ...

Re: Stormtrooper hellguns seem to hit secondary targets

Torpid, I seem to recall that what you're calling "falloff" is actually a property called "scatter". I think the way it works is if there are two enemy units in a line, then targeting the unit in front will cause a certain percentage of fire to scatter to the rear-most squad. So ...

Re: First ingame video (it's in German though)

I just watched some of the gameplay video. Setting aside whether I like the aesthetic of the new art design, I'd say it's not achieving its goal of making the game more readable. If you look at a game like Starcraft 2, its art style definitely helps it be readable, but I'd say readability in large p...

More concerning than the flatness and brightness of the visuals is the scale. The first screenshot looks a little bigger than a late-game 1v1 all out brawl. The second is around double that size.

Re: Techmarines need a limit to the ammount of turrets.

I seem to recall that lascannons are actually a decent counter to turret spam if you can give them sight. Checking the codex, both autocannons and lascannons outrange HB turrets and do 40+ dps to turrets. Try to use something durable (and in cover preferably) to give your havocs line of sight and ch...

Cooldown/reload reduction sounds nice, but I kind of hate how unevenly it gets applied to units. You have to comb through the codex to find which units it's actually good on and which ones it's a waste. For instance, using Black Relic's numbers (cool reduction of 75% and reload duration reduction of...
