I agree 100%

well first of all...the game is defiantly balanced now....any1 who says WA is unbalanced now is just a noob and doesnt win at all...but u haf to admit when they aloud 10 fire prims it was kinda hard to defeat them all....but now the limit is up to 7 which gives us a winning chance....so i like the game now...but i also just found out bezerks were givin a cap of 3 which is werid...i dont know any unit in tier 2 wit cap of 3...but i cant complain...doesnt affect me that much...and besides when DC comes out i dont care if its unbalanced or not...b/c there will always be patches afterwards to fix it....so im lookn forward to campaign and hopefully a brand new shiny buffed AI :D

Well, never experienced a berzerker rush? pretty awesome at the very beginning of tier 2 if you teched fast enough and the ennemy did not push towards your base as much as he could've done. Won several 1v1 automatches like that, even against players with 1300 + ranking.
I also agree with you Spear (even if i think this thread might have been better in the rants & raves part). People keep complaining about the fact that the game's unbalanced blablabla... that's just an excuse cause they don't manage to win anymore with their old tactics.
And dame goes for DC, i keep reading here and there that Taus will own everyone, that IG won't stand a chance against necrons etc etc, but hey wasn't that the same before WA came out ? Once it was out it took some time to adapt to the new system (even i, veteran comp stomper of over a thousand comp stomps with at least 96% ratio since beta; had my butt kicked by a handfull of standard guards on my 1st WA compstomp...) but IG did definetely not own everything with ease.
For all those who really believe their über super maxi killer army has come ("woot monoliths own!!"), heh i guess you'll be dissapointed. Regarding that Monolith btw, don't forget that the Land Raider in the WA campaign was damn freaking tough and hard to kill, they prob did the same with the monoliths. Once in multiplayer the LR is brought down like any other tank.

Agree with [Spear] bout 80%, no one's played the game yet so don't act like you have. The Tau in the demo wouldn't let you go to T3 so you don't know how strong they really are and no one has any idea bout the necron other than the word of mouth from Relic. Don't get you hopes up with DC? But then again [Spear], how would you know it sucks? With 7 races and 60+ multiplayer maps, go to gamespot.com for the new article, I think it'll have lots of replay value.
remember SkyNet? Ya we evolved

i agree too, dont complain tell the game comes out. More important, if u lose matches, is because of the way how u used ur tactics to try to win. I know i havent lol, it's true, i try to beat computer on insane with AI mod 1v1, i was chaos, he was IG, got my ass whooped. Heroes: Roleplaying mod was on too (best mod ever!!). Everyone has their ways of winning n will lack somewhat, i just need to figure out better tactics of winning or ill go down like a noob, which im not. Anyone beat insane AI mod computer 1v1 or 2v1 here yet?

Note- "Fluff" is the W40k term for backstory
The majority of the complainers are actually TT players and fluff followers. They don't like the way the game's balanced since certain units they feel aren't "fluffy" enough, so mods like DoWPro end up getting downloaded by them. Others feel that some of the sides' uniqueness have gone away for balance (Personally I don't feel that way).
Personally, I feel that Relic is doing a good job of balance, especially between 5 races. They aren't perfect, but it's a mighty fine job. They'll have even more of a tremendous task with 7 races.
And guys, Spear isn't saying the game is going to suck. He is expecting that there are going to be some people saying the game sucks do to a balance issue and are judging too early atm. Wait 'till its out, then judge is his message.
I'm eagerly expecting DC with open arms, and hope for the best.
venonat80 But then again [Spear], how would you know it sucks? With 7 races and 60+ multiplayer maps, go to gamespot.com for the new article, I think it'll have lots of replay value.

I think ppl who think the game is unballanced have one problem: they keep trying the same old tactics against new threats, and so are promptly anihilated
"the only thing constant is change"
this game is balanced for the most part but i think sm are just too crazy i cant wait for dc cause it will add a new unit so no more freaking sm spam
