Dawn of War

Has anyone here played this RTS game? It's very good. It's like starcraft times 100. The controls and tech trees are similar to star craft making it easy to cross over. The interesting thing about this game is how resourses are gathered. "Strategic points" once captured by infintry, u put bases over them, and u get a certain amount of resourses per second. Power, is the other resourse type generated by power gens. there are 4 races, each with there unique units and abilities. Not the best single player game out there, but does add story. But for the multiplayer, this game would deffinatly be for u. It's based on the Warhammer 40k rules and universe. I'm not typicaly into that, but the game is amazing. The infintry is grouped in squads, which u can reinforce, and equipt with special weapons. All kinds of different tanks, and even summoned creatures and hero's.

Deffinatly! Winter Assault should be awesome. I guess they're gonna add more single player missions, and another faction, the Imperial Guard. I hear they're worker will be able to fix tanks 4 times faster, and there tanks will be very powerful. Should be interesting :)

Awesome game. Definitively try the demo for a taste, you won't be disappointed.

 

What I love about this game

1) the overall experience. There is a lot of flavor with the music, the animations, what the unit say from time to time. Wait til you build an avatar, your jaw will drop to the floor. I don't know how many times I forgot I was playing a game and just stood there watching the units do their thing... :D

 

2) Ressource system. Very similar to Total annihilation. You control key location on the map and you generate x amount of ressource per seconds. Not need to micromanage your economy around with gatherer and the like. Love it.

Things are not as they seem,

nor are they otherwise

Yeah i love the resourse system, and the units are diverse and engaging. i've sat there sometimes 2, forgetting to play, and just watching the battles. i bet that's what EaW is gonna be like, lol. THere is no air, which is interesting, really adds to the ground battles. Trust me, the AI can be very difficult if u increase the difficulty. A great game deffinatly

I like the squad idea were you can upgrade and add couple more units to the group which is sweet. Adds more to the gameplay. Would be nice to have this in EAW but I doubt it.

I hope so 2 polovnik. It just doesn't make sence single units running around. they would move in squads. Maybe after u build a suad of say stormtroopers, i'd be nice if u could upgrade there blasters to blaster cabines, to blaster rifles, kinda like DoW.

I was thinking of using that name before you put it on that naming list, Since it was a demo I used that since I was going to uninstall it soon. Ghostly Substance is what I was going to use......

Apparently you can play the campaign with the other sides, Chaos, Eldar, Orc and Imperial Guard in the expansion.

 

I don't mind the multiplayer. It takes a while to get used to the whole stategic point element to it, but once you do it gives way to a whole host of battles over them. I don't know about anyone else who has the game, but I find the squad caps a bit restricting, but I suppose that's to encourage tactics instead of the large army scenario. I'll post some screenshots of my custom army when I play next.

 

 

*Edit* Here are those screenshots I mentioned. I took more, but these seemed the better ones. I named the team Moonsickle Gurad. Sickle because of my love for Russian history, Moon because it sounded cool and starts with the same first letter as my name does and lastly Gurads is a typo I originally made of the word Guard. I kept Gurad because it sounded sci-fi like and suited them, so that's how it's been for almost a year. You'll notice they're white like stormtroopers, with green which is my favourite colour and carry a custom symbol and banner I designed. Hope you like the pics.

Dawn of War is a great game. Im a Dawn of War Admin at the Electronic Sports League and the game is really pure fun. Sadly the support is very bad but I hope this will change with the release of Winter Assault. This is what will (keep on) play(ing) until EaW is released ;)

The table top game is too exspensive for me and not enough people play it were I live. Not to mention painting those small figures would probably have me institutionalized inside a week.

 

The game is fun, its really the only RTS I play any more. Singe player was to short and I'm waiting to see what the Imp gaurd will be like. Everything I've read has them as a "turtling" group, where they just take a spot and dig in. I tend to play as the orks and try to over run the enemy early in the game with my slugga and shoota boyz. If things run a bit long I get my Nobz and Wartracks going and try to end things before the otehr, non-ork, team gets their armor and heavy weapons going at full steam. Sometimes I'll just play as the Space Marines and just grab some points early on with the scouts and turtle up untill I can get my armored column of 6 predators going. Un-fortantly I've only had two occasions to play on multi-player. Both times I used da' orks and the opponent was using the marines, so I over-ran them early on and they quit as soon as I start damaging their structures.

They quit, HA cowards :P

 

I remember I was playing SWG and attacked a friend and he was so stupid and cry babyish he quit everytime I attacked him or another friend of mine did. I'm saying this since he will do this in every RTS and theres lots of people out there that love to quit when losing :) People wonder why I play to the end.

Yes, I tend to stick it out 'till the bitter end if just to inflict more casualties. When I played Red Alert 2 I held out untill my last power plant blew on one game. He finally got it, but that last power plant cost my opponent another 100 and some-odd troops. He won the battle, but I had the higher score. He had over 2000 casualties to my 700 some.

 

I love the new sysem some games are impementing that show the player's wins, loses, and how many games they quit. That way you can avoid the little babies who quit at the first sign of trouble... Incidently these tend to be the people who say "No rush for 10 mins, k?"

I can't wait till Winter Assult. I think it's commin out Sept. 30th? From what i hear, it'll be a more single player based expantion, based on the Imperial Guard, so that's awesome. Imperial guard should be fun. I've been told they have the best tanks, and there workers can repair buildings and tanks 4 times faster. I can't remember the name of there biggest tank, but it's gonna be badass :twisted: . It should be a blast to play 8)
