Right first of all....everyone says The DoW community are sooo great. In my opinion some of the community is great but most of it seems really miserable, ungrateful, whingey, & childish. :mad: I hardly ever see anyone writing something good about Relic they always seem to get the shit end of it all. Main thing i see is balance issuse....to be honest i know this is a game & has nothing to do with Real life what soever...BUT there is no balancing in war you know? Like Space Marines should be able to crush Eldar, Imperial Guard with ease & if Imperial Guard or Eldar want to Win they have to push that bit harder then the Space Marines? if your following & if i'm making any sense? I hear sooo many people moaning about how they got their ass handed to them by a Noob Space Marine player & they were let's say Orks? Simple as Orks require waaay more skill to play then Space Marines in my opinion & besides Space Marines are the all round beginners army right? & Orks are the let's stupidly out number them..therefore the Orks require that bit more if not alot more skill to play as? & damn yes this game has some major bugs & alot of small bugs....but you can't always blame that on your losses online & offline Skill & knowing exactly how to counter an encounter & being quick is what decides whther you Win/Loss Example Your farting about building 2 chapel barracks & sending 1 Scout Squad to get SP's while your opponent gets up a barracks & has 2/3 Scout Squads picking Sp's up here there & everywhere ! & possibly has 1/2 Space Marine Squads &/or a Commander. Who's going to win? :) One thing i don't really like is, lack of units & the caps on some of the units...think what kind of Army super, stealth, fast, hit & run, sneaky etc etc goes to War with 1 Artillery tank? & don't tell me stratergy...that's not right...atleast 2 Artillery for every team y'know? & damn i think it's Orks that when their Looted Leman Rus tank shoots it's main cannon at infantry it's just a puff of smoke & the unit losses a tiny bit of health? or it's the Defiler...one of the two not sure which...what the hell is up with that? That's pretty weak artillery is it not? I know i'm doing alot of moaning but you gotta let it off somewhere eh? & i don't expect to be flamed or noobed or whatever for this. Some simple criticism, positive & negative will do fine...that's not asking much is it? I had more that has been bugging me all day but i'll add on if i can remember. Thanks for reading.

I know what you mean about Relic always getting the finger, and sometimes they do deserve it. Like these stupid caps. 2 Leman Russes? 1 Kasrkin Squad? Not to mention the Baneblade is worse than a T2 Light Tank... If you ask me, everything was best as it was when Winter Assault was released. Another thing are these tools. If I can run DoW shouldnt I be able to run the ME? Or even why isnt the ME built in? Thats about all of my moaning about Relic. Until my next game of DoW... I think it just depends on the person really. Some people will agree that the Leman Russ really does suck, but others will say its stronger than any tank out there. If you ask me, all tanks suck except for the Looted Leman Russ. Whats with that? One shot and half my army is gone. Dont get me started on the rest of the Orks... trust me... I think DoW needs a serious re-balancing. Orks are far too strong and powerful, Space Marines are quite well rounded except for the Predators, Imperial Guard pretty much only have the Imperial Guardsmen that dont suck, Eldar... well... SKIP, Necrons are waay too weak, expecially that monolith, AND Tau with those stupid Firewarriors that always seem to close into assault no matter what you do... Just fix this stuff and you will pretty much have the game nice and balanced. I havent really noticed that many bugs.
Heh yeah i agree...the caps...fair enough give Relic a right moan because it's not War? it's like a few groups of different races just run into each other BAM fights over in a good few seconds...i have to get these defensive maps & play 3 V 5 & 2 V 6 if i want a fight to go on for ages ! I do play Insane i worked my way up the difficulty list to Insane...but the computer doesn't play like an army doesn't ambush...sends a force into your base or your army & just Deep-Strikes some units either in your base or around your army...always fails though :( Computer needs a fix & so does the units..this is gotta be the most difficult RTS to have ever been made with the whole re-balacing...although imo If a defiler, Dreadnaught or any other CC vehicle gets into CC with a squad...that squad should be crushed instantly..CC specialized squads will obviously last longer :) i don't know if it's jsut me but a dreadnaught takes a few swings like 4 o5 at a CSM then kills him & throws him away shouldn't ti be like 1/2 or 2/3 hits? maybe? I dunno i'm never really good with these kinds of things. & last but not least SORT the CAPS OUT..don't sky rocket them to 584 or soemthing stupid like that...either keep it 20 & lower each of the units caps & stuff or keep the current caps but change them aroudn abit less stupid hard caps 1 whirlwind wtf? & maybe make it hardcapped at 2 or even 3 ! But do this for all armies ^^

Actually the only complaint I have with the series is with the coming of the 2nd expansion. Relic still did not notice the basic glaring fact with the series since the original dow came out. That is the absence of infantry formations. I mean wouldn't it be cool to have all your infantry to change formations on the go. Think about it!!. Infantry forming a proper firing line when engaging in a shoot-out, Making your troops use a scatter formation to minimize casualties from artillery fire. or changing to a phalanx formation in c.c It truly baffles me that relic first known for making the excellent homeworld series would overlook such a small thing. but will nonetheles would make the game more immersive and more tactical than it already is. Cause the way I see it if the series had friendly fire like in most rts games half your own troops should be dead by the hands of their own buddies.
