Dawn of War: Dark Crusade
« on: November 12, 2006, 06:41:49 pm »
Ahhh, finally, a thread about the new cool on the PC :D

Whose got it and what do you play?

I used to be a space marine player but they have been nerfed so HARD i have gone back to Imperial Guard (i had a long spout as them when WA was released). They have changed the imperial guard and they fit my play style _perfectly_. God damn love them.

I think the expansion is absolutely amazing, no other expansion i know gives you so much to do, PLUS a very clever system of use of other expansions/original game.

Would it be worth buying/downloading?

Having seen my brother play it, I can safely say that Kroot Carnivores are hugely OP. They jump into stuff, it dies.

Look at some of the other end units and you'll see it's about the same power.

Plus you shoot the kroot in general from a distnce.  The whole idea is that they lack ranged but are brutal in melee.. the oppisite of the Tau themselves.

I'm waiting patently to get this, but I do own the orginal game and can say that it's worth obtaining.

My boyfriend said he'd get it for me for my birthday.. jsut a few more weeks.. :)

I like the orks, personally, though I'm shyte at playing them.

Yer, looks quite good and you can try the demo if you want...

Though, my brother ran off with the CD Keys so I can't really play it now. Might buy myself a copy sometime.

If you're lucky, one might die!

again, if it' sso unballanced, why ahs the ranked play been at roughly 50/50 win/loss for EVERY race in the game sence they started to post the results?


I beleive it's a case of "I don't know how to play the game, so I'm going to claim it's unbalanced."  here.

It probably just balances out with the large amount of games played. I'm not currently too knowledgable about the start of DC, but before it, I was in touch with most of the imbalances in the other patches; and I can tell you it was imba before. For example, in 1.3, defilers were stupidly powerful and Orc's lank of AV against them made it even worse.

From looking around I guess Necrons are the best race, though again I don't really know that much specifically. And yes, there's always bound to be some imbalances in any RTS, but in past versions of DoW the imba has been sometiming principally recognised.

*nodnods*

See, this is why I love this board.  We can have intelegent disccuisons about such things without the term "Nazi" being batted around.

:)

Oh and by the way, your'e a nazi...

Downloading? No. It's got the latest Securom, and its a bastard to crack.
