Do any of you play this online? If so what type of game do you play?

I suck so bad against other humans so i do comp stomps, normally me plus a friend vs 2-3 computers.

I too suck terribly online, and Im not quite used to SM in the latest patch and i suck at IG, but with some training maybe i can become decent atleast. Gonna go find a birthday present for my girl today, so i might look around for Dark Crusade as a present to myself =)

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.

is that true even of orks? I remember pre-winter assault, i only lost to orks maybe twice the whole time i played... which was a lot.

Hmm. It certainly only dropped to about 45% at the lowest, never went that low. Orks were so weak in 1.3. :/

Can you play the game on lan with same cd-key? Cause I was thinking of buying the game and then playing it with my friend in LAN cause I have been talking to him about the original DoW since the came out. And I heard that if you only have the DC you can only use necrons and tau in multiplayer, so only tau and necrons in lan? :(

I don't know for sure but one cool thing of this game, it requires no cd to run. If only all games did this.

DoW has a clever expansion system if you ask me. You can by DC and decide which army is "you". If its tau or necron, look no further. If its SM, Eldar, Orks or Chaos then buy the original game. If its IG then you have to buy them all. People have been saying "omg you have to buy them all?! What a ripoff!"

Tell me one game where you can buy the expansion which has _all_ the features of the original game, therefore making it a stand alone game and not an expansion at all. lol

Never had problem with that, but my friend ordered Tribes 3( :o) just to realise it was a dvd. This was back in the days when dvd games were a new thingy.

But yah, I might as well go and buy the game and see if I can play on lan with my friend

Are you kidding? 2 squads of fire warriors, with a pathfinder team, can pretty much wipe out anything when standing still, and kroot can take care of everything else.

Besides, those battlesuits are better than any turrets. =P

Try playing on hard or normal and killing the SM Libarian, Chaplain, Force Commander and a squad of marines with those troops....  ;)

Pre Dark Crusade i was a Space Marine (Blood Angel shock horror) player, but now I'm an Imperial Guard Player.

They fit my style of play perfectly and i love their quotes.

"If you will not serve in combat, you will serve on the firing line!"

If you like that quotes (as I with the space marines :D:D) here I uploaded a tool for unpack the sga files and a convertor from fda to aifc to wav

If you really have no idea of how using this (its not too hard really) I can guide you
