I liked SC better because i felt it was more competitive but as of late it just custom games and big game hunter, the players of sc are the problem

DoW is a good game but i don't think it is as competitive or as even as sc it is still fun however and what i have been playing lately.

Mind you sc feels old now.

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

I prefer controlling squads of troops rather than individual troops.
I also prefer the upgrade and reinforcement methods in DOW.

I prefer DoW. Starcraft in my opinion is decent but still a 40K rip off and the control and reinforcement options among other things are what make DoW a better product.

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 play both but DOW is all new and I probably prefer it because of all the
war hammer 40K stuff its really cool plus DOW has way more armys to play and there all kinda unique with there own way. SC is kinda old and the three races to me seem similar and not that unique at all but thats my opinion.

i prefer sc, as theres only one dominate race, in DoW its so triangle tho.
(space marines/ chaos< eldar<orks<Sm/ Chaos)

in sc, everyone knows its quite even between zerg and terran, but protoss pwns them boths!!

aloth remeber starcraft is 10+ years old, yet the battle.net is still alive with it.

believe it or not, IM NOT COMING BACK!!
