 #4 - Posted by: Fusion1988 (Member) on 10-13-2008 at 03:28

Starcraft II looks like a good game but im all for DOW II.

 #5 - Posted by: Ronald_Jesch (Member) on 10-13-2008 at 03:31

This poll is kinda pointless, seeing as how this is a DoW site.

 #6 - Posted by: chaoslordx13 (Member) on 10-13-2008 at 06:24

if you vote starcraft, please hang your head in shame and go to a differnt website, Lol jk DOW 2 ALL THE WAY :rock::cool:

 #7 - Posted by: Hadda (Member) on 10-13-2008 at 07:12

It was really hard keeping myself away from the "I Like Pie!" option :D But I go DoW2, any day.

 #8 - Posted by: Serefinn (Member) on 10-13-2008 at 08:20

DOW2 nuff said.

 #9 - Posted by: winn795 (Member) on 10-13-2008 at 08:26

how did they know i like pie p.s. best poll ever

 #10 - Posted by: Corbec_UST (Member) on 10-13-2008 at 08:47

Over all, im really disappointed in Starcraft II. The site Ive been using for information on it is no longer up and running so i havnt heard anything recently but from what ive seen and heard I am not pleased with the direction its going. With the exception of how the Campagin is set up. That looks cool. So I voted for DoW II because overall it seems better. The only thing I dont like about DoW II are small things like squads size (I think 4 would have been a better number) and the fact its the Blood Ravens (Of all the SM groups... why them? I hate those treasonus soldiers)

 #11 - Posted by: MightyHaegr (Member) on 10-13-2008 at 11:34

Altough I like both games, DoW2 for me. But damnation, pie was tempting! For me, Starcraft 2 had two errors: first, it had been nothing else but Starcraft 1 with better graphics. Why not call it Starcraft 3D? The only new things were new unit types, and I miss the old units, especially the old two archons (I think there is only one now). I can understand that they wanted new shiny units ( which look much like Tripods and Assault marines), but the game mechanics are exactly the same. It is still good, but it could be so much more. Second: Why couldn't they finish "Starcraft: Ghost"? They had damn 4 years for it. On the other hand DoW2 will not be a DoW1 with better graphics. Completely new gameplay, but the same good old units that are icons of Warhammer. I know they take a risk with such a dramatic gameplay changes, but Starcraft1 was also revolutionary in its own time, and look how successsful it became!

Has anyone here heard yet how they're splitting Starcraft 2 into 3 games? Releasing them a year apart (each has it's own name), 1st has the Terran campaign, 2nd has the Zerg, and 3rd has the Protoss, IIRC. Starcraft fans are pissed, it means they need to pay three times as much now. Still, Blizzard shouldn't have ripped of W40K, so I can't bring myself to feel sorry for them.

 #13 - Posted by: Cpl_Death (Member) on 10-13-2008 at 15:06

I like them both, they are both excellent games.

 #14 - You forgetting something? - Posted by: Red_Hammer (Member) on 10-13-2008 at 20:03

As i last recalled - it was Total Annihilation that kicked SC's rear end!!! I still play TA to this date and its successor Supreme Commander! WH rules cause it offers a different style altogether. Put all those kool RTS into one pot and you got delicious stew! yum yum

 #15 - Posted by: Jaon (Member) on 10-13-2008 at 23:19


 #16 - Posted by: SuperNashwan (Member) on 10-14-2008 at 06:31

so SC might have copied the Zerg from the Nids but 40k in turn nicked Nids from Alien and H R Giger. it is possible that people do play more games than just DoW so this poll is relevant. I voted for pie because I have never played Starcraft so I can't compare the two.

 #17 - Posted by: 1000thSon (Member) on 10-14-2008 at 07:16

W40 K based on/influenced by Alien and Starship Troopers (the book). Starcraft just blatantly ripped the tyranids out of 40K and gave them a new name. There's a difference.

 #18 - Posted by: 1000thSon (Member) on 10-14-2008 at 07:17

* I mean that the Tyranids were influenced by Alien and Starship Troopers, not all of 40K

 #19 - Posted by: MightyHaegr (Member) on 10-14-2008 at 13:27

I do not know where you heard that, but if splitting up the game is true....Blizzard is becoming even greedier than Games Workshop, which is a new world record. And they should really give Raynor back his old looks, now he looks more like a starved brother of Mengsk! ... Please? DoW2 will be simply epic. Lets hope Windows Live will work fine all around the world.

 #20 - Posted by: DesertFoxVIII (Member) on 10-14-2008 at 14:32

Kind of a silly poll for a DoW site... lol

 #21 - Posted by: Cpl_Death (Member) on 10-14-2008 at 15:12

#19 EA already beat Games Workshop in terms of greediness in my opinion. #20 We already went there...

 #22 - Starship Troopers the book - Posted by: alWarLORD (Member) on 10-14-2008 at 15:15

Starship Troopers (1959) by Robert A Heinlein look it up. The Book was written by one of the best SF writers of the last century. Starship Troopers was weary influential on all later SF work and quite controversial because political idea, and reflection of USA during the cold war. Read it and you will see that the book did not only inspired Tyranids but also the Space Marines.

 #23 - Posted by: Cpl_Death (Member) on 10-14-2008 at 16:32

It didn't inspire Space Marines.

 #24 - Posted by: WarriorBourne (Member) on 10-14-2008 at 19:29

Why is it that every poll turns into a stupid debate with people not even making valid points, just their own blabbered lethargic? Guess its the nature of the Human Nerd. ( Warhammer 40k > O )= the hole that starcraft two fell into, not even worth mentioning next to it.

 #25 - shsk,707834xfhjsx3 - Posted by: reptiliation (Member) on 10-14-2008 at 21:44

 #27 - DOW2 - Posted by: D00M_LEGION_DK (Member) on 10-15-2008 at 01:05

DOW2 yeah love it and cant wait till it comes out! Warhammer 40k= The bolter hole in the side of starcraft2

 #28 - Posted by: FLOW_1 (Member) on 10-15-2008 at 15:20

Esscence 2.0 'Nuff saud

 #29 - Wrong site for this pole - Posted by: Deathreapa11 (Member) on 10-15-2008 at 16:33

:rolleyes: Really? You want to take a poll that pits two of the most rival fanboy groups on the Dawn of war site? Mate what in gods name where you thinking!

 #30 - Posted by: Deathreapa11 (Member) on 10-15-2008 at 16:33

ah crap spelling errors... frick

 #31 - Steps backwards - Posted by: Dezaro (Member) on 10-16-2008 at 15:39

Above all I love the unparallelled 9 armies that are in Dawn of War I hardly get bored of it because when I do there's always another that I'm not bored of. I'm sorry but, DOW2 is stepping too far back where it counts and I can see that I'll be playing DOW for much longer than DOW2 at least until the expansions start flowing for DOW2.

 #32 - Posted by: chaoslordx13 (Member) on 10-16-2008 at 20:44

once the chaos expansions comes out.... starcraft 2 will have no chance no matter what blizzard does.

 #33 - Posted by: Hrtbrk1 (Member) on 10-17-2008 at 01:44

I wonder if they are running a similar pole on the Starcraft Filefront site?

 #34 - Posted by: Necronius (Member) on 10-17-2008 at 04:08

bah starcraft 2, only improved graphics and new units. BOOORRRING!!!! The gameplay is still the same. DoW II FTW!!!:rock::rock::rock:

 #35 - Posted by: madanam (Member) on 10-17-2008 at 08:42

actually @34 incorrect only improved graphics and LESS units. Ive just been reading about SC2 and apparently units are being tweaked and removed. Havent heard much about anything getting added. But thats just me and what ive heard.

 #36 - Posted by: 1000thSon (Member) on 10-17-2008 at 09:43

#31, did you just say DoW 2 was a step backwards? having 9 races battling over a single solar system is one of the stupidest plots I've ever heard, worthy of C. S. Goto

 #37 - Posted by: deadaimx (Member) on 10-17-2008 at 12:15

I'd love to see Gabriel Angelos slam his warhammer right into Jim Raynor's skull!

 #38 - Posted by: kingoid1 (Member) on 10-17-2008 at 14:11

#33 no they arent

 #39 - Posted by: Boombaye (Member) on 10-18-2008 at 00:03

I'd love to see Kerrigan mince the Blood Ravens.

 #40 - Posted by: Ifrit (Member) on 10-18-2008 at 00:21

i think everyone would like to see the blood ravens minced.... dumbest chapter ever! bring back the legions before the heresy

 #41 - Posted by: deadaimx (Member) on 10-18-2008 at 12:45

I'm so sick of the Blood Ravens. Any other chapter will do! Dawn Of War II should have gotten involved with the Ultramarines, the Space Wolves, the Black Templars, the Grey Knights, the Blood Angels, or even the Relictors! Send the Blood Ravens on vacation to the Bahamas or something.

 #42 - Posted by: Corbec_UST (Member) on 10-18-2008 at 17:01

Oh yes, I want to see a different chapter also. I would like nothing more then the inquisition to declare the whole lot heretical (after all they have plenty of evidence from the war on Kronos) Kill them all off and bring in a different chapter. Actually I think it would have been nice if the creators could figure out a way so that you can choose what chapter to use (something like in DC except just chapters instead of whole armies... and the chapters would mostly be the same with minor differences like choosing between different classes in KotOR)

 #43 - Posted by: kingoid1 (Member) on 10-18-2008 at 22:09

there is nothing saying were the blood ravens came from mabby a mix of blood angles and raven gard?:confused::beer::donut:

 #44 - Posted by: Cpl_Death (Member) on 10-18-2008 at 23:20

#43 uh wow. Just no.

 #45 - Posted by: deadaimx (Member) on 10-18-2008 at 23:39

It might be possible that the Blood Ravens really came from a CHAOS legion! For all we know, they might have been originally from the Thousand Sons. And I thought the Dark Angels had a terrible secret to keep.

 #46 - Posted by: Ifrit (Member) on 10-20-2008 at 02:06

blood ravens are a successor chapter of the ultramarines believe it or not :r which means they are a boring, annoying, overrated, bunch of morons..... like most of the ultramarine successors....

 #47 - Step Backward mkII - Posted by: Dezaro (Member) on 10-20-2008 at 06:29

I'm sorry people but, after looking at the new game play trailers I'm even less convinced. No base building? No real resourcing ... and they still call this strategy? This is more like an RPG to me. (Mind you I still think the campaigns will be fun)

 #48 - Posted by: deadaimx (Member) on 10-20-2008 at 12:42

Yeah, I'm not sure if I'll get DOW II when they removed base-building and acquiring resources and stuff. That's kind of a letdown to me. I don't want to just see squads in action. I want to see armies collide!
