Default Warhammer: Mark of Chaos

I was just wondering if anyone on here played Mark of Chaos for the computer. I got it for Christmas, after beta testing it and finally have had some free time to play and enjoy it. I have been playing the empire campaign mostly but have gotten online some too.

Anyway, I just wondered if anyone else had it and if you did what your name online was and what you thought of the game. My name online is Blood Claw Warrior, like my name here.

EDIT: I guess this could have gone in the WHFB section as well. If a mod wants to move it or leave it here that would be great, whatever they think is best.

I tried out the demo that they released and while the game has great graphics and a cool seeming storyline, I find that it is very slow paced.

one thing I want is the ability to split my fire everywhere, it makes no sense that a squad of 10 guard or marines or whatever all have to fire at 1 target with everything, is the guy with the lascannon not smart enough to realize maybe he would be better off firing at the massive tank looming overhead instead of the little man no bigger than a squat running at him, or is that far too complex for the 10yr olds?

>> I bought the full game. Sack of crap. To slow, unit ai is horrible, moving about the map between battles is un-inspiring. I have various beef with this abomination. Reviews I read said its closer to fantasy, than D.O.W is to 40k. All I can say is, glad I dont play fantasy. Awful fuckin game.

I was strongly disappointed in MOC. Anyone who says that it is anything like actual tabletop Warhammer is an idiot. It isn't even close, they share the same world and that is all. I stuck by it's side forever defending it's good points and anxiously awaited every patch and it never met the standards that I had set in my mind. The combat in my mind was horrible and looked boring as hell. In my opinion the only saving grace of this game was the graphics and nothing else. However those are my thoughts and as such can be taken with a grain of salt. Hope I didn't offend any of the fans but I guess my expectations were different.

You know...I don't play fantasy, so i'mnot sure about the fluffy aspect of it.

But i know one thing--the multiplayer is utter crap.

Worse than my burnt taquitos.

I'm a hardcore/diehard Fantasy Battles player who has only recently joined the ranks of 40k players and Dawn of War captured the feel and look of that game, MOC gave it a shot but fell so short and tried to cover up those many flaws with flashy effects and graphics. I wish that I felt differently about that but I can't get past all that it could have been and never will be.

I agree with you FalseEmperor. Dawn of War and its expansions were and still are great games and they really capture the feel of 40k and the armies in the game. MOC on the other hand has very nice graphics but that is essentially it. I followed it from when they first announced it and I was in beta and everything but once it came out and even in beta, they didn't follow up on many things they said they were going to do and it just wasn't what we all wanted.

By the way, I play both warhammer and 40k and have played for a while so I am in the same boat as you. I really wanted MOC to be good but it wasn't. I just can't wait for "that" warhammer game.
