I love starcraft and I love DOW...but of their sequels I choose DOW2. Starcraft 2 has changed a bit too much in my opinion.

And come on, warcraft was really good.

Loved Starcraft, and DoW got me interested in WH40K (not the TT, just 40K in general).

To be honest, the way DoW2 is shaping up, it seems like it will be more like Ground Control....

Boy did I love Ground Control!!!!!!

In all honesty, I'm looking forward to DoW2 more than Starcraft2. More of a tactical game than just a case of unit spamming.

I'm still disappointed by Blizzard not having done/released/whatever, Starcraft: Ghost. That looked like being a good game, and a break from the norm. Then again, it could have turned out like Fire Warrior.....

Ultimately though, DoW2 will be my first purchase over SC2. Might get SC2 after its price drops.

warcraft 3 was a disapointment the story mode was pretty awsome but the only reason i bought it was because it was ten bucks and the multiplayer scenario modes. like resident evil and flying units? a fucking helicopter? i hated them cuz they could just spam flying units and rape your mellees. the only reason DoW added flying units is cause they couldnt add any more units and the public wanted moar. it works tho cuz damn near every unit in DoW has a gun wheather it be pistol or otherwise.

zekie123;4567221well first you only get like 300 gold a min and a fucking grunt costs 240 a single grunt ugh and its too fantasy for me. i never liked the ages were ppl used bow and arrows. i thought that time wasnt cool. also im tired of the same generic classes. "THIS GUYS AN ORC!!! HES RETARDED AND STRONG AS HELL!!!" "THIS GUYS AN ELF!!! HE LIKES ARROWS AND SMART AS HELL!!!!" "THIS GUYS A HUMAN!!!.... gah screw it theres nothing good about em." "this guys undead!!! hes a mindless slave to a big guy called a-GAHHHH NOOO AHHHH MY LEG!!! MY FUCKING LEG!! NO STOP PLEASE!!! DONT EAT THAT!!! GAAAHHHHHHH-*gurgeling noise*"

The latter sounds like more like WoW, though it is a very typical fantasy universe, what with the orcs and elves, but it has an interesting spin on it. Orcs aren't murderous pillagers, but relatively peaceful shamanic tribes.

The rest is opinion - it's fantasy? Your problem, not the game. The whole game is on a smaller scale then DoW.

The helicopters were in Warcraft II, they were just scout units. Gyrocopters suck against land units anyway. Or they don't, I really don't remember. They're weak and expensive and not really worth the investment.

number 2 is prolly gunna suck fat ork balls. or in SC cas zealot balls. the protoss are just goofy lookin mix of tau and eldar.

And you've played it? You have to have played it to make an assumption, right? Just saying that its "prolly gunna suck" is a stupid one to make. I noticed that Starcraft fans are never this pissy about 40k. Maybe it's just your rampant fanboyism.

i apologize for sounding like a fan boy IHRN you have a good point i have not played the game but it sounds like SC2 is just a golified version of SC i stated early that i didnt like the game. if i said it sucked then i guess i should have restated my post. srry for the misunder standing. but you cannot deny that protoss are a goofy looking mix of eldar and tau lolz.

Ihaterednecks;4566856What's wrong with them?

zekie said it in a nice way. Anyways, you're just trying to antagonize me into a fight, and I clearly said this wasn't the place to state this... If you really want to talk to me my xfire is on my profile page...

If you want to start a fight, do it on your own thread. The one thing I've learned about you is that almost all your comments are negative or they're trying to start a fight. If your mum and dad had a row or something, this isn't the place to vent your steam.

He's not trying to antagonise you, and he doesn't come on these forums to troll, despite your accusation.

Now, I'm sure that IHRN has no interest in this thread devolving into a flaming match, and I would hope you don't either.

So, take what he posted with a pinch of salt. Otherwise someone will report this thread, a Moderator will get involved, and then this thread runs the risk of being locked before other people can post their own opinions on the subject matter.

I apologise for back-seat moderating, but to be perfectly honest, if we don't have to get a Moderator posting in here in their official capacity, all the better.

Well, I'm glad I didn't anger anyone with my rant. Can we just coexist peacefully?

I bet you could accuse my post of fanboyism, and it probably is ringing with fanboyism. I just can't see it because I am a Blizzard fanboy. Or at least something of a Blizzard fanboy.

My post may have been aggressive, but I'm trying to antagonize you. You're overreacting.

LEt's start with comparing their predecessors

SC

Zero experimentation (even for it's time in the genre). Pretty graphics Overwhelming unnecessary micro Terrible balancing at early version - became very balanced over time captivating story a very simple unit/weapon system

Dow 1 Terrible balancing at early version, somewhat improved in DC still terrible in SS (Coh proves though that relic can balance) Dull story as hell Very good graphics pull away from traditional rts gameplay less streamlined than SC. You have more build options. It's not like TvT both go mecha as it is in SC. A way way way (can't overstress this) more powerfull mapeditor.

As to what we can expect from SC2 and DOW2

SC2 strong story SC1 in 3d

That's well basically it. Even their hardware preferences are simmilar.

I'm jst afraid that dow 2 will cease being an rts and become a RTT.

Not to mention the way Starcraft tried to look like softcore warhammer.
