'I Still Play A Bit of DOW' still play it occasionally, but others most of the time, like Crysis, Oblivion, Team Fortress 2, etc. May not even play Soulstorm that much when it comes out, it's severly lacking at the moment. DOW II, that's another story.

 #2 - Posted by: Wheezcellbert (Member) on 02-04-2008 at 12:07
Im in the same boat as 100th Son I play DoW but I also play a lot of other games. If I may suggest a game to play while you wait for Soulstorm and if your comp can handle it is Sins of a Solar Empire. Just came out today and no this is not an add. I do know that when DoW Soulstorm comes out Ill get it and play DoW a lot but as of now Im sticking to other games and mods for DoW...

I agree, the expansions are getting repetitive and they're just too predictable. I still play DOW, but not as much. I've moved on to more advanced RTS' like C&C: Tiberium Wars and SupCom (Supreme Commander)

 #4 - Posted by: Serefinn (Member) on 02-04-2008 at 12:10
Btw, "Has Killa finally lost it?"... I hope not...

 #5 - Posted by: conti (Member) on 02-04-2008 at 12:34
Well, I still play it but right now I'm playing Assassin's Creed. Great game.

 #6 - Posted by: 1000thSon (Member) on 02-04-2008 at 12:42
I'm getting it this friday, along with PS3 and a 19" HD LCD

 #7 - Posted by: Ad3506 (Member) on 02-04-2008 at 13:41
in my opinion, "Yes", they have made me wait to long for Soulstorm, so i have stopped playing Dow for now (just until the f***ing BFG Finally comes out, which is how i found this thread), ive lost interest, after finishing all the campaigns, there isnt really much left to to on DoW anymnore(skirmish gets boring after while....i might not even get Soulstorm (go on then, call me a traitor to DoW).if the BFG ever comes out (and tell me if it is actually already out please!)i might be persuaded to go back on DoW. ( And FYI, my 'another' game was guild wars :) )

 #8 - Posted by: conti (Member) on 02-04-2008 at 13:48
thats like 1000 American dollars, or for me 100,000 yen. Thats like two months pay for me.

 #9 - Posted by: BeanTheKing (Member) on 02-04-2008 at 15:04
Well Serefinn, at least this one doesn't have Marines to overnoob it right? I still play DoW, but with mods most of the time. And when it's just DC, I do 2v1 insane to keep my 1v1 skills somewhat good. Or I might just play it to get some screenshots to have and stuff. Anyways, I don't really bother buying games anymore, DoW and America's Army is good for me.

 #10 - Posted by: slamhammer (Member) on 02-04-2008 at 17:35
i have been out of it for a while so this is the first time i haven heard of soulstorm. i hope they got new ig units and abilities

 #11 - Posted by: Kouen (Staff) on 02-04-2008 at 21:43
[quote]thats like 1000 American dollars, or for me 100,000 yen. Thats like two months pay for me.[/quote]You're on five hundred bucks a month? Dude... Totally under-paid...

 #12 - Posted by: Crazyman456 (Staff) on 02-05-2008 at 00:45
Yeah my job was £260 a week, heavy labour on the ranges. Now thats like $300-400 I believe in American money. I am 16 to... Yeah, I'm agreeing with the underpaid. Anyway, I barely play DOW at the moment, I find the game very boring and repetative as it is. Maybe when Soul Storm comes out, it may give me a reason to play DOW again. Oh and Ruley has always been insane, thats just him. - Vasili

 #13 - Posted by: Eidolon (Member) on 02-05-2008 at 08:54
ive been going nuts on my SupCOm demo and battlefield 2142, im going on a haul soon and am getting £120 worth of mega games

 #16 - read below - Posted by: decinator25 (Member) on 02-05-2008 at 14:25

 #17 - Posted by: conti (Member) on 02-05-2008 at 16:56
Actually I'm lucky to even have a job that pays that much, because of the overpopulation and all. I have to say though, I really want a different job.

 #18 - Posted by: Grenademan (Member) on 02-05-2008 at 18:00
Yeah pretty much. Empire Earth 2 FTW!

 #19 - Posted by: ZombieStomp (Member) on 02-05-2008 at 20:42
My gaming diet basically consist of Team fortress 2, DOW and a little supreme commander here and there. :) i eagerly await soul storm, even though my video card decided to randomly commit suicide a couple of days ago, so gaming is out for a while anyway.

 #20 - Posted by: HappyMrAdrian (Member) on 02-05-2008 at 23:36
Why isn't there an option that says 'No, i'm not waiting for Soulstorm at all, because it feels like Relic is completely out of new ideas' ? I just stick to mods at the moment, although as of late i've been too busy to play video games much.

 #21 - Posted by: conti (Member) on 02-06-2008 at 06:09
Well, even though the Wii is big in Shibuya, I have to admit I like the 360's games better. Not enough blood in Wii games.:)

 #22 - Posted by: Boombaye (Member) on 02-06-2008 at 08:38
Killa, I still play DoW and some StarCraft while waiting for SCII and Soulstorm...I question your sanity. Whats the real reason for this poll ?! It's an interrogation isn't it ? Isn't it ?!

 #23 - Posted by: 05johlei (Member) on 02-06-2008 at 10:53
i agree with 16 im waiting for age of reckoning so i can be a dwarf iron breacker but probably no one nows what im talking about

 #24 - Posted by: Majestic_XII (Member) on 02-06-2008 at 13:48
Well,I still play Dark crusade cuz I like it much.It is the best rts i ever played. Soulstorm is going to be interesting but not the thing i wait for March.There are some expansion packs and new games coming for which I wait. I am a chaos fan: Death to the false emperor.

 #25 - Posted by: Deutsch_Guard (Member) on 02-06-2008 at 14:02
I've been playing Company of Heroes: Opposing Fronts, which kinda like DOW, being made by pretty much the same people. #9/BeanTheKing, wrong! All the Marine voters have been worshipping Marines in the run up to Soulstorm and will now proceed to tell us that......

 #26 - reply to 23 - Posted by: decinator25 (Member) on 02-06-2008 at 14:08

 #31 - Posted by: BeanTheKing (Member) on 02-06-2008 at 20:54
Dude, I have a 0.00 GPA. And not because I spend my life playing games. It's 'cause I skipped with my sister and went to her bf's house. He's got a freakin' pool for christ's sake.

 #32 - Posted by: conti (Member) on 02-07-2008 at 06:26

 #39 - Posted by: BeanTheKing (Member) on 02-08-2008 at 06:18

is killa crazy, cus this is a realy rather stooped poll. no offens killa but why do you need to remind us that DOW is dyeing.

 #43 - Posted by: armageddon643 (Member) on 02-09-2008 at 18:46
ya.. I think he has lost it. but I do still play dow a bit but i mosly play Halo2 and Legend of Zelda:Twilight Princess. that game rocks.:rock:

 #44 - Posted by: typhon1023 (Member) on 02-10-2008 at 06:18
The reason DOW is dying because its another expansion... im tired of expantions!:mad: but yes i still play a bit of DOW...other than that im playing starcraft, CS, and Elder scrolls Oblivion...

 #45 - Posted by: TDATL (Member) on 02-10-2008 at 14:04
where is "I'm not waiting for soulstorm and never was"?

 #46 - Posted by: TDATL (Member) on 02-10-2008 at 14:27
The reason DOW is dying because its another expansion... im tired of expantions!mad but yes i still play a bit of DOW...other than that im playing starcraft, CS, and Elder scrolls Oblivion... --typhon1023 Supcom has had an expansion. No harm in player base. Elderscrolls III:Morrowind had two expansions. Diablo had one (or two) as did Starcraft and Total Annihilation. Niether of which harmed their playerbase. Heck most every game out there has expansions. Player bases don't die due to expansions. The player base dies when the expansions ruins or does not expand upon what drew them to the game in the first place. Most highly popular games can retain huge player bases long after the game has been left behind. Fallout, Total Annihilation, Starcraft, Morrowind, Diablo. All of the before mentioned games have been long sense over the hill. You can still find large player bases for all of the above. Heck there so many games would still have huge player bases if the games would run on modern technology like they should. DoW has lost its player bases because Relic/THQ fails at making expansions and patches. The modders, mappers and skinners are ALL that holds this community together and have been the only real glue for quite some time. Without the mods DC would not have sold very much IMO. Considering most the mods are going to switch to SS its more than likely going to make a bundle. Which is all Relic/THQ care about in the end. They don't have to make a decent product and they know it. Substandard is acceptable because the only people left are die-hard fans and people who love the mods. Both will more than likely buy the game because its "w40k" or "DoW" or someother reason that is not the games merits. If this is not true then they have a serious evidence to fact discrepancy and just generally fail overall.

i havent played DOW for ages, instead ive been playing on the classics like total annihilation, or command and conquer

 #48 - Posted by: Eldarkings (Member) on 02-11-2008 at 13:31
Umm... Wait for SS while playing hellgate and crysis, play SS for a month, throw it in my closet, and play WarhammerOnline:age of reckoning until I die then maybe play DoW2, well... thats my plan. And I can't choose between Squig Herder or Choppa....

 #49 - Posted by: conti (Member) on 02-11-2008 at 14:46

 #50 - Posted by: Hrtbrk1 (Member) on 02-12-2008 at 03:21
I still play DOW occasionly online just to keep my skills up for preparation for SS or usually to try out some decent mods. However most of the time I find myself playing Call Of Duty 4 and Soul Caliber 3

 #51 - Posted by: KsDClanCom (Member) on 02-12-2008 at 11:55
