Re: Steam Reviews are less than stellar

Wait, so journalistic articles are trustworthy, now? Sorry, I keep getting told conflicting things on that (and I recognise it's a personal thing, what outlets to trust, and so on). Either all the professional reviews are paid-for and overhyped, or the professional reviews mention the phrase "...

Re: Steam Reviews are less than stellar

I mean, how in denial are you guys about the fact that you are actually playing a game that's closer to a moba than an RTS?

Literally every article about dow3 mentions MOBAs more than RTS, btw total biscuit ripped dow3 apart.

Re: Steam Reviews are less than stellar

Are you really that shocked that the Elite community, probably the most diehard DoWII fans, don't like a game that is very different from DoWII? http://i.imgur.com/E6u9hMP.png Does this look like a dow2 player? Oh and just for clarity, I picked the first 1, I didn't need to dig or nitpick anything....

Re: 2.7 Proposal - WSE Filament stun instead of KB

You do not think given all that it would warrant being 20 power instead of 25? Most definitely not. There are also upsides on a stun. Like vs unsupressable commanders to start out with. Also need to reword it so it doesn't look like it has a chance of doing 50-250dmg :) The problem is that this new...

Re: 2.7 Proposal - WSE Filament stun instead of KB

It would also be coupled with a price reduction so it costs 90/20 Which seems very cheap for a weapon that also grants the WSE with about 50% extra ranged deeps in T1. I mentioned the unusual price to you but you seem to be aware of that. Fwiw, LG GLs are priced the same. Can the LG teleport around...

Re: Remove the experience bonus from reviving fallen allies?

Well the Standard is OK in team games yes because he can be revived. In 1v1 a dead FC just to get the buff a stupid idea. In my honest opinion it is a bad design if a wargear can only be use at its full potential in a specific game mode. While the Sacred Standard is good in 1v1 it's foolish to lose...

DOW1 was a classic base-building, macro-heavy RTS I never really understood people saying this. Classic base building ? sure, there is base building, but you don't have to build 10 barracks or so, to keep producing tons of marines. The base building is really light in DOW. And macro heavy ? serious...

Re: Terminators for sm and chaos from a 1v1 view

Melee termies are already fine, they receive enough support from Kworship/sorc/libby etc to do what they need to do, hammernators are still pretty good taking out other super units, only the ranged ones need to be more relevant.

They are a super unit that barely does enough damage to threat T1 basic infantry, you know, that may be the problem when Plasma GMs,TCSM or any melee squad beats them in efficiency.

Re: Terminators for sm and chaos from a 1v1 view

Yes terminators are pretty pathetic damage wise for what they cost, iirc pre-nerf ravs did more damage than them in T1, the only ones that are worth the resources are assault terminators/chaos termies with claws/autocannon.

Keep in mind it's a 100% bullshot trailer, the game won't play like this and it won't even be this smooth, there's no UI and we've already seen from many gameplay trailers how messy and blobby the game is in reality.
