Voted "No" As much as I would like them all to be there. They are probably going to drag it out over 3 or 4 expansions again.

 #2 - Posted by: BeanTheKing (Member) on 07-21-2008 at 11:11

This poll-fail. If you're running out of ideas already, try this one. Which race are you gonna play in DoW II? (although it's pretty obvious who'd win..) Or Will you still come back to play DoW once you have DoW II? As for this poll, it's an obvious "No". Like TDATL said, they'll just drag it out with three or four expansions.

 #3 - Posted by: Ronald_Jesch (Member) on 07-21-2008 at 11:53

I agree they'll probably just have the original 4 for DoW 2, which is pretty cheap. Hopefully some new units though or unit variations.

 #4 - Posted by: In__Hoc__Signo (Member) on 07-21-2008 at 12:07

The two games seem too much different at the moment.. No more Spamming Marines, just for example. "No" for me. There will be rilevant cut off.

 #5 - Posted by: duncedon (Member) on 07-21-2008 at 12:20

no because 1) then you wouldn't but an expansion which had say dark eldar if you didnt like dark eldar etc..... leavin newer units till later makes the expasions seem more desirable for more people. and 2) some are just pointless for example the many types of artillary for the IG because tbh you would only need either a bombard or medusa as they both do pretty much the same thing.

 #6 - Posted by: KealaMenshaKhaine (Member) on 07-21-2008 at 14:14

You have a good point there and its the fact that all those different models and textures with all the game data and all engine etc it will take a huge amount of space

 #7 - Posted by: Wasabeee (Member) on 07-21-2008 at 15:39

if either necrons or tau or dark eldar are in it then i will definately buy it, but i dont think any of them will be, probaly just gonna be like DOW in the begining. as long as theres someone other than space marines eldar orks and imperials then im happy.

 #8 - Posted by: Lord_Seth_D (Member) on 07-21-2008 at 16:23

Voted No. There was supposed to be what? 4 races total? I hope the last one is Tau cuz I'm not a fan of the SM, Eldar, or the Orkz.... figures they release all the races I'm iffy on. With luck the last race will be Tau, necron, Chao, or SoB... or Nids but that's a a lone hope shot in the dark.

 #9 - the sky~ - Posted by: firewarroir (Member) on 07-21-2008 at 18:21

well theirs tyranids in it so maybe.

 #10 - Posted by: Templar_Crusader (Member) on 07-21-2008 at 22:47

I'd have to say "No", of course not. Was this a rhetorical question?

 #11 - NO - Posted by: Tmoulus (Member) on 07-22-2008 at 06:15

I voted no because... 1) They can't have every unit from every race or it would be to much and dawn of war would be a very over-complex and unbalanced game because of to many units. 2) It would take soooo much time to model every unit from every race. 3) How are they going to get a campaign to work with all 10 races? A linear campaign for each one would take to much time. A non-linear campaign would need a huge sized map and take ALOT of hard-drive space

 #12 - look at some good stuff - Posted by: khronefool (Member) on 07-22-2008 at 06:49

look at the good side u have new units and weapons and next there probally going to have chaos with some new weapons to as they are going to have for spacemarines eldar looking forward to new races like maybe steellegion imperail guard chaos daemons tau and necrons theres not much of a point for dark eldar to be in it thanks for reading my post and srry for my spelling errors :)

 #13 - Posted by: Cpl_Death (Member) on 07-22-2008 at 09:45

No, because SM, Orks, Eldar, ?, have a vast majority of units, there are those mods out there which include them all, and there are a vast number of them, sometimes even they cannot include them all.

 #14 - *sigh* - Posted by: Ramunathra (Member) on 07-22-2008 at 21:01

Heres to hoping they're all there. :beer: But I must admit I voted no too. They'll definitely drag it out. It's only good market sense.

 #15 - Posted by: Tmoulus (Member) on 07-23-2008 at 07:05

They can't, it would make it to complicated and ruin balance, some new ones could be added like devestator and mortercylcle squads though. DOW 2 will be good but hoping more on the bugfix and balance sides.

 #16 - Posted by: deadaimx (Member) on 07-23-2008 at 12:05

The answer's obviously 'no'. They'll just add a race or two with upcoming expansions like how they did it in the first Dawn Of War. Here's a better question: -Which Space Marines Chapter do you think is the greatest?

 #17 - I just cant see it - Posted by: The_Mattster (Member) on 07-24-2008 at 05:56

Despite the fact that i would just love every race we have so far plus more in Dow 2, it just doesnt seem like its going to happen. As well as this, after what has been said at E3, i think its just gonna stay as Space marines, Eldar and Orks, though it pains me to say that :(:'(

 #18 - Posted by: LtHanley (Member) on 07-24-2008 at 19:11

Pick up a magazine and you would know that all the racers will be included. Gam Informer FTW.

 #19 - Posted by: Floppyhamwarsalad (Member) on 07-25-2008 at 08:43

why not it would be beter

 #20 - Posted by: BeanTheKing (Member) on 07-25-2008 at 16:40

Game Informer fails. In the last issues there has been ONE article about DoW 2 Which was completely useless, and it's pretty obvious that only four races, maybe five tops will be in it. Units are also gonna be less than the current, Raider? Bloodthirster? I don't think so.

 #21 - Posted by: LtHanley (Member) on 07-25-2008 at 18:27

Sigh. The game doesn't come out till NEXT year. What they have showed you is probably the bulk they have finished. Trust me to that the expansion packs that were made for DoW were things they relized they missed. Expansions packs are ways to make a game better.

 #22 - Posted by: TDATL (Member) on 07-26-2008 at 00:06

"Expansions packs are ways to make a game better" "Expansion packs" also don't normaly cost the price of a brand new game. Relic/THQ has taken a likeing to charging full price for each of their "expansion packs" and redoing/killing the balance and playstyle in each one. Not to mention putting progressively less work into them to the point of hiring someone else to do it. I'm fed up with relic/thq's (they are the same company) style of expansions. The fewer they have the better. I'll probably try DoW2 but I'm not gona go for another one of their "expansion pack" rides. I jumped off after DC and don't plan on hoping back on.

"if either necrons or tau or dark eldar are in it then i will definately buy it, but i dont think any of them will be, probaly just gonna be like DOW in the begining. as long as theres someone other than space marines eldar orks and imperials then im happy." What s.h.i.t are you spouting, I thing I would rather drink piss then hear the same point over and over again GGGGGGGGGGGGRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 #24 - Posted by: lacrossefrwd7 (Member) on 07-28-2008 at 08:47

i think that if relic chose to do a combo such as space marines, chaos. eldar, and nids, that would be awesome. i mean, i realize that a lot of ork players would be unhappy, but if relic were going to try to create the darkest possible environment, then i think those races would be the best, since they mesh the best. eldar have a big history both with nids and chaos. space marines with chaos nids and eldar, and so on and so forth. granted, the final race will most likely be orks. but as i was thinking about it, i realized that the orks, while certainly a crucial race, could well be transplanted with the nids. additionally, have you guys read in the various IGN forums some of the comments about 2? Some of those guys are absolutely stupid. They keep talking about how if theres no base building, they arent going to buy because its an rts, completely ignoring that over and over relic has said that that structure is present in the campaign only, as far as i know. Just a little mini rant from someone who loves the game. haha. -Best, Lax

 #25 - Posted by: lacrossefrwd7 (Member) on 07-28-2008 at 08:49

i meant to say the final race will probably be chaos. sorry

 #26 - Posted by: kcaz (Member) on 07-28-2008 at 22:31

As much as I would like for all the races, I'm going to have to vote no. It only makes sense that they drag it out into expansions (if they do at all) to make more money.
