okay guys its zeke here. i couldnt tell if this was good for DoW forums or starcraft forums so i thought id put it in both then i said screw it and just put it here. so wadda ya think SC2 or DoW2 who is better good old, proven to work gameplay which garuntees ppl will like it or fresh expirimental gamplay, which is a huge but necesarry risk to take let the arguing BEGIN!!!!11!
I don't mind either, but in the latter I think Dawn of War 2 will exceed Starcraft 2 in gameplay and graphics, as it looks better than SC2, even though SC2 has been under production longer than Dawn of War 2. But you could also argue that the first Dawn of War(s) and CoH were the working grounds for it, but thats where the argument turns agains SC2. Starcraft came out 10 years ago, as I was told by my best friend, IHateRednecks... And the other Warcraft series? Jesus. Those suck. And don't even get me started on WoW... but this isnt what thats about... So, the only way for SC2 to become superior is if Blizzard takes another 5 years to finish it. And if I offend you Starcraft lovers and/or 1/8th of the Korean population, theres only one thing I have to say to you. Suck it.
hahaha always good to have ya here eclipse. personally i second that i have been waiting months for even a new screen shot for SC2 but to no avail meen while ive been experiencing brand new and exciting footage/screen shots at a more consistant pace. im wonderin if there even working on the damn thing any more. and if you ask me with SC2 they just added a couple of shiney bitz and called it a new game. tho im not close minded. ill buy both. that is of course im still alive when they get done making it. i only gots 60 years left man pick it up a bit

Sc2 will sell more no doubt about that, but as far as game play goes I'm going with Dow 2. It is innovated as it has a "random variable" with in it and has a cover system which most rts should consider.SC2 on the other hand is the same thing in 3d....

True. All I've seen is some new units, and an upgrade in graphics. Dawn of War 2 has a completely new engine compared to SC2's, and it boasts actual tactical-ness (haha, zekie) so far, but my guess is that SC2 is going to be the equivalent of a tyranid army in DoW2... mass units and attack...

But something that i no is going to be a big one fore me is its going to be more difficult. I have played Company of Heros which also takes use of the Essence Engine and i must say the game is somewhat difficult as you have to think more "strategical" and also the units sometimes choose not to liston to you....
Which brings me to another point- Do you want to spend money that uses an outdated engine for AI thought and procces, or do you want something that is a little more recent, and has the AI try and preserve itself? We aren't talking CoH, we're talking DoW2. They have probably fixed the bugs and made some major updates on the Essence, so its going to be like CoH+DoW, but not really.
the only thing i have a problem with in CoH is that when i say to get in a building i mean GET THE FUCK IN THE BUILDING! dont lollygag around the front for 60 seconds while your getting pounded by an MG. wtf is up with that. am i the only one who has this problem
Which comes to my point that they've probably fixed up the bugs a bit for DoW2.

DoW 2 looks cool, but idk. Honestly, the biggest RTS games coming are Red Alert 3 and Starcraft 2. Both of them look very promising. I have not seen enough of DoW 2 to really judge, but from what I have seen, it doesn't seem to match up to the innovation Ra3 has, and the amazing storyline Sc2 has.
