Well, I think it was well played. It is a matter of butt plugging mod makers. Last time it took several months for the mod makers to keep up. Many are getting pissed at relics indifference to the efforts they put into the games. Relic does not act as if they are competing with modders, but in reality they are. Fewer people play mods, and most will likely buy the expansion, but people still play demonhunters. They smash mods everytime? Is that just because they change some of the games code, and the modders have to adjust? or is it something more insidious? A plot from the dark side I tell you, and now freaking scouts are uber! WTF, balance my butt. Marines got stupid bad. Dreads, who can deepstrike... the only ones in the game... are cheaper, while the defiler is now more expensive and have to walk the whole damn screen. NOW the only marine tactic is the scout rush. It is damn near unstoppable if played right.

If they were so worried about the impact that mods have on the sales of expansions, why would they even include modding tools? I'm sure it wasn't some devious plan to actively destroy mods, it was probably just an inevitable by-product of making significant engine changes (and in my opinion, improvements). The modders will adjust, after all, that's what they do, and in the meantime, you can just patch only up to 1.3 and be happy as a clam. It's not like you HAVE to patch up to 1.4. Geez. Persecution complex anyone?

Chipmunk and I are having a quite intellectual conversation on strategies here: http://forums.filefront.com/showthread.php?t=219938 And also, a nice trick is to make a copy of the root folder and call it 1.3DoW. So then you can keep your nice 1.3 happy when you buy winter assault if you haven't already.
