DoW2 was a pile of shit though and Relic hasn't made a decent video game since Company of Heroes 1. There is zero hope for DoW3 being good.

I think it'll be better than DOW 2, but how can they say "biggest RTS yet" when it has less initial factions than DOW?

Everything ASSFAGGOTS did was straight from Warcraft 3. Which is a pretty good RTS.

First DoW was fairly colorful, humourous, and fun RTS
DoW2 becomes a mediocre, grimdark RTT
DoW3 going back to being colorful and an RTS

I see no problems here other than the worrying descriptions they used, like "accessible" and "simplified"

They can only rightfully claim the title when they implement a 1000 unit cap.

most of the default colors were fairly grim looking. It only looked colorful if you were shit with the colors you picked. I always went Imperial Guard so naturally everything was army green, grey or black. If you were a faggot that always went Ultra Marines of course you'd assume the game was colorful. Chaos looked dark as fuck and were in my opinion a more visually enjoyable faction to play than space marines.

You tried atleast.
@likme

Thanks. Looks decent wouldn't mind them toning down the colours a bit to make it more drab. That would make it feel more like 40k.

If that isn't pre-goddamn-alpha, there's no excuse for looking like this horseshit.

@RumChicken
honestly the biggest problem is less to do with color because we know it'll be dynamic and changeable. The issue is to do with the lack of dirt, ambient occlusion(the most easiest to make, so the fact that it doesn't have it is just slack), no visible damage on any of the units to give even a hint of realism (despite having obvious Normal Maps on them).

Look I mean, Compare this to Battlefleet Gothic that just came out. Now THAT is how you get the 40k Style. So much fine detail, damage on all the ships, gritty and beat up. Beautiful.

Look at DOW1. Even that has more Ambient Occlusion and more dirt. Color isn't the issue its the absence of detail and how BRIGHT everything looks. It is very clearly stylized and I'd be pretty pissed if it retains that dirtless non-AO quality. Its slack game art. Nevermind that they still bothered to put in a Gold Shader for what is "pre-Alpha".. yeah bullshit. No one would bother with a gold shader on pre-alpha block ins. Anyone saying that is in total denial.

You can see it better with sub 4k res the sheer lack of any texture detail on the units. I really sincerely hope it doesn't stay that way. But it IS annoying to see. At the very least put some damn AO onto the texture.

base building is back
How to spot the shill. They said in the article that base building is back but said nothing about actually building fucking bases, only about one building for making the 3 units shown in pictures of the game so far.
Dawn of War 1 style bases are back. They produce your workaday line units such as Tactical Marines, heavy-weapon Devastators and Dreadnought walkers.

also adding to this. I feel as though the environments are very sub par textured compared to what Relic has done in COH2. Their standards are definitely slipping.

@Soft_member
implying the IG counted as a faction in the base game of DoW1
Like in DoW2, they were restricted to the campaign and used as NPCs only. It wasn't until Winter Assault that they became a faction in their own right.

CouchChiller
CouchChiller

@Snarelure
Yeah
DOW1 was Space Marines, Chaos, Eldar and Orks. (4)
Winter Assualt added Imperial Guard (1)
Dark Crusade added Necrons and Tau (2)
Soulstorm added Sisters of Battle (1)

8 Factions Total for the life of the game.

I was listing from Memory. I didn't spend as much time with Soulstorm because it came out 2 fucking years after Dark Crusade and I was too busy actually testing ports of Space Hulk to Mobile :P. (I worked for a 3rd party porting house contracted to THQ). Along with a few other THQ Wireless titles of the time.

But anyway, yeah I didn't play much Soulstorm because I was employed by that time. Dark Crusade came out during a wonderful time of Unemployment in my life.

Nigga do you even play the tabletop? Most people don't paint their army to be muddy and dirty, they paint them in a way that is colorful and looks great from afar.

The DoW1 units look like shit.

I never played the Tabletop because I was too poor and still am. For me it was always about the Lore and the vidya. I'm not very talented with traditional art, my background is purely in digital so I'd be completely shite at painting 40k models unless they were on a screen and in a 3d game engine.

That said though once I'm a millionaire Imma buy the fuck out of 40k lol get em made out of solid gold.
