It depends on the incarnation of the game. The original DoW and winter assault i was Chaos for the multiplayer. Then DC i was the orks and as of yet i couldnt care less about soulstorm so i dont have a fave.

A great tactician knows that victory is one part planning and nine parts faith

Remember Alex arrogance killed the person nobody liked.

Haven't had a chance to pick up Soulstorm yet, but the Sisters look hot.

I don't really have a favorite... I play with all of them, except Eldar, in about equal stead. I only mess with Eldar if I'm really bored, because they're really not my style and in a direct fight, they blow.

IG because there my main armie, i only have winter assult tho.

I do hate that everyone plays maps with a good bottle neck and i can't deep strike or jump walls i need to charge through the bottle neck.

Yeah, well the Space Marines never dropped forty thousand feet in a drop pod WITHOUT power armor.

I just started playing the Orcs in DC and so far they seem to be able to pretty much kill every thing with ease. I beat the Chaos with a direct assault and end the CM pretty rapidly.

In DC, with chaos I was unstoppable. Now for soulstorm Im playing with IG and all its faults. But most importantly, im having fun.

IG command squad is so much fun in that game

I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fearÖ I will permit it to pass over me and through me.And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.
-Bene Gesserit Litany Against Fear

In the moment when I truly understand my enemy, understand him well enough to defeat him, then in that very moment I also love him. I think itís impossible to really understand somebody, what they want, what they believe, and not love them the way they love themselves. And then, in that very moment when I love them.... I destroy them. I make it impossible for them to ever hurt me again. I grind them and grind them until they don't exist.

I love Tau and Necrons, however Necrons are cheapsauce in that game.
I'm just depressed that Nids are left out, and the mod for them is rubbish.
