Original Dawn of War was awesome
Dawn of War 2 had watered down gameplay but at least units looked great (and were to scale), story was fun and cutscenes looked amazing so it was at least enjoyable to look at
Dawn of War 3 was just short rehash of 2 and they couldn't even put in some effort in cutscenes, they looked like screensavers
I didn't bother with playing that one, I just went to YouTube and watched story video, saved me loads of time and money (at least my dude Warboss Gorgutz got some character development
But like I said, these days I mostly read wiki or watch videos and I always remember the good old wisdom: "It's better to die for the Emperor than to live for yourself"
Here is a good video summary of general situation in the galaxy:
I know, i still play DoW:Soulstorm from time to time with the ultimate apocalypse mod.
Altough i could not leave the coding alone in that one either and modded the imperial gaurd into an massive airborne force with reworked urban camo for the units and buildings in campaigns that are normally hard-coded.
Basically whatever you build will remain in the production building untill "deep striked".
Then Valkyries would drop down and drop Forces to reinforce where needed.
Dont mind the fatal AI error, its because when steam makes an screenshot it crashes the mods AI.
It can not handle an interruption if its not in-game.
I saw your posted vid, and i know it all seems to have gone to crap.
Lets just hope GW does not take the same shitty way of writing as they did in the End Times of Warhammer fantasy universe.
I always loved Cadia, It never surrendered and some of the best troops came from here.
seeing it obliterated with just a few cutscenes...i felth it was so cheap.
In my opinion if they wanted to get rid of Cadia they should have made it an campaign on itself.
Even when the blackstone fortress was unstoppable still would have engaged for Void Superiority so the Forces on the ground have more time to disengage.
But that maybe is just me being an Imperial fanboy.
And i know, ... the Imperials themselves do not hesitate to execute Exterminatus while their own forces are still fighting on the surface.
And of Course
. The Emperor Protects.
Also if this is the End, its better to get my ass back into the I.G and find myself an Trench to defend.
I am not going to wait for the End to come trough my front door at home.
i do not know how events will work out, anything i would say here would be pure speculation.
Lets just say if GW decides to twist the neck of 40K as well they get added to my shitlist next to the likes of E.A.
I try to still have hope, like you pointed out. Dow:2 had great looking units and more importantly an great story.
I think they went here two steps back by not including base-building and the vehicle use like in dow1.
dow:3?. uhm?. who played that?
I really do not know what that one had to do with Warhammer dawn of war.
I also play often Total war:Warhammer 2 as the Empire or Skaven.
I used to dislike fantasy but i grown quite fond of it.
The imperium in its higher-tech stages can function like an WW1 army with tanks, artillery and repeating guns.
Skaven, Clan scryre just go the extra mile really. With Gattling guns, chemical warfare artillery and long-range snipers.
Skaven, everyones favourite furry psychopaths in Warhammer.
That have figuratively "loony tunes" written on their foreheads with how over the top evil they are and all the shit they think off and blows up on regular basis up in their faces.
But,..only side so far that employ's tactical nuke's
I am an "live and let live" kind a guy.
If people dont bother me, i dont bother them.
But personally i am also seriously done with all the LGBT-whatever propaganda getting forced in everywhere.
Everyone has equal rights, An minority of the population has not special rights.
But its an topic on its own i guess.
Yes, they made attempts with that already with posts that they should be more inclusive and all.
But its seriously the least suitable universe ever to try to shoe-horn the Alfabet-people in.
....Because It is Heresy!.
Just remember to report them to your nearest inquisition officer Brother Python.
They will take care of the rest.
