Well i voted Eldar, but tbh ill probably just go random since its only a mp beta and until full release we wont have anyone coming straight out of the campaign with sm familiarity so all races are gonna be an even playing field since we will have had no experiance with any of them in the new style of play :rock:

 #9 - Posted by: The_Libertine92 (Member) on 01-19-2009 at 08:14
couldnt deceide between nids or eldar :p but i chose nids cos well quite frankly they are amazing lol

I agree completely with maxxta. I rarely buy demos of games, as I'd rather get the full impact of the game on release day. I'd most likely have played Tyranids, followed by Orks, Eldar, and the Space Marines.

 #11 - Posted by: 1000thSon (Member) on 01-19-2009 at 09:33
*and THEN Space Marines

 #12 - Posted by: MightyHaegr (Member) on 01-19-2009 at 10:15
Space Marines first, orks second. I don't really find the other two faction interesting.

 #13 - Posted by: ab2531 (Member) on 01-19-2009 at 10:29
And how will we be able to get the beta?

Don't really want to play the beta honestly. I'd rather wait until the full game is released. I'm patient me ya'see. Rather wouldn't sully my dreams with an incomplete game.

You forgot the option: "My computer is to old to depict DoW2's sheer awesomeness"

The way the polls have been written has changed into a much different manner, has the staffing of the Weekly Poll changed? i voted space marines because i play black templars TT and because the guy with the huge sniper rifle looks interesting..

 #19 - Posted by: Sl4sh (Staff) on 01-20-2009 at 10:50
The Weekly Poll feature is usually written by dread, Abbadon, and sometimes me. Poll that are written in this fashion are mostly written by me.

 #20 - Posted by: jabba1234 (Member) on 01-20-2009 at 12:13
space marines winning the poll? Well we never saw that coming did we? Not that I don't like space marines, but a poll to see which army is most preferred including space marines as a choice seems a bit pointless to me, because we all know who's going to win, even though some will deny this. But anyway, i voted Tyranids. I'd like to see how well they intergrate into the strategies. Eldar look pretty cool, as well as the space marines. I think the orks look too serious and the guns look too shiny for my liking

 #21 - Posted by: shadowxps (Member) on 01-20-2009 at 20:54
Everyone voted SM. Fail. Seriously guys. We've waited for nids to roll around forever. Disgusting.

 #22 - Posted by: chaoslordx13 (Member) on 01-20-2009 at 22:46
wht am i not surprised? of course space marines are winning even when half the community was begging for tyranids... id play sm first though =D

 #23 - Posted by: chaoslordx13 (Member) on 01-20-2009 at 22:47
if my stupid graphics card was good enough that is...

Go Spess Mehreens!

 #25 - Posted by: Serefinn (Member) on 01-21-2009 at 12:29
#20, #22, I agree with you, but people vote SM on every poll they can because they get reactions like yours. Unfortunately the best way around it is to get used to it. As for the poll... what maxxta said :)

 #26 - Posted by: Ramagon (Member) on 01-21-2009 at 18:19
I would really choose the Eldar, they look awesome and they almost remind me of a heavy metal band:p

 #27 - Posted by: kcaz (Member) on 01-22-2009 at 15:15
Im gonna have to try the nids. Im tired of the other 3 :P

 #28 - Posted by: superevilnastyman (Member) on 01-22-2009 at 15:31
lol i'm a huge fan of DoW but i honestly had no idea how soon Dow2 would be till today feel so stupid missing out

 #29 - Posted by: Grimskull44 (Member) on 01-23-2009 at 03:41
Well, from current experience i'll say this for the Tyranids : If you send a Marine commander (Doesn't matter which type) against them he's dead. Partly because they have over 10,000 HP on their commanders, even the Force Commander has only just over 1,000... And partly due to the whole nightmare that is 'Nids in Combat. Honestly, the easiest opponent for me playing as Space Marines is Other marines... Sadly though, i have to shut down absolutely everything to play the game at anything approaching lag-free speeds... Including antivirus and firewalls. And even at minimum graphics it's still not completely lag-free... but then again, 2.66Ghz running a 3.4Ghz minimum game, i guess it's doing Ok.

 #30 - Posted by: Grand_Master_Bean (Member) on 01-23-2009 at 12:43
great, they invented a game that not only sucks (lets be honest) but also eats every computer in existence seriously, in my few games of DOW2 i've noticed that things move very slowly, that it often CRASHES, and that the stupidly small squads are pointless DOW all the way!

 #31 - Posted by: KsDClanCom (Member) on 01-23-2009 at 12:49
@ 29 Yes...3 SM Cypots are losing against ONE Ork...BOT...Thing... i have forgotten the name...the OrkBOT kills nearly 2 Cybots before he goes down in a 3 vs. 1 "match". :confused: The Tyrans...yes in close combat you will lose against them, but...that are Tyrans^^. The Eldar are much stronger than i had expected. The Orks...are Punks. :D :rock:

 #32 - tau - Posted by: Dauri (Member) on 01-24-2009 at 10:38
bring on the tau bring on the tau eldar will do in the mmeantine @grand master bean yes i think the small squads arent as fun as an ork spamm maulling but this forces that thing of "tacticall gameplay " not just legions of sm with heavy bolters and m.launchers but sriously eats every comp alive SERIOUSLY have you heard of CRYSIS!? and this polls to discuss what race u gonna play not is it a good game or not (yes i am a tau fanboy)

 #33 - Posted by: Edteen (Member) on 01-24-2009 at 13:22
SPACE MARINES ARE THE OWNAGE!! :rock::rock::beer:

 #34 - Posted by: nanosheep (Member) on 01-25-2009 at 08:50
A WH40k game without Chaos is like order without disorder.

 #35 - Posted by: KingRUSS (Member) on 01-25-2009 at 13:44
Space marine commander kill all other commanders!, xept the Ork Boss with power claw, then its a squad of marines and any commander lol

 #36 - Posted by: HappyMrAdrian (Member) on 01-25-2009 at 21:11
I'll be sitting this one out. Guess i'll just wait until the eventual stand alone pack FOR THE DARK GODS!!!
