Big whoop.

I'm more interested in the August Gamescom announcement Relic have promised.

If it's not Homeworld 3, it's not important.

Who cares about a bunch of sadist homo's wrapped in leather? they were never my favorite army to begin with, "were dark and evil sadistic and murderous... eldar". theyre still squishy, pleasure seeking, half naked elves, they got an update after +10 years, that's no love, its a sales tactic. real love for a faction is updates every 1-2 years with new upgrades, equipment and strategies to employ. so you can appreciate and rebuild your army over and over again and stay at the top of the metagame the whole time. the only force that does this, lo and behold is space marines... and smurfs at that... ugh i think im getting an ulcer from thinking about it.

As they said in the article:

Quote:
CoHO featured persistent hero units that could be levelled up between multiplayer encounters, unlocking new battlefield abilities in the process. The game also featured a player avatar that could be upgraded to unlock powerful, limited use battlefield abilities like air-strikes. It will be interesting to see if Relic bring any of these multiplayer RPG elements into Dawn of War 3′s multiplayer mode to make it a more “MMO-like” experience.
Based off of how well Last Stand was received I could see them doing something like this.

In your opinion, maybe. For even I care. (Insert my reputation as senior Xeno hater) They are in the fluff. And an interesting part of it, and if I would ever chose an Xeno army to be my next army, the Dark Eldar would be high up on the list.

Would be interesting to see how they would work in DoW II (or III! ).

And btw, your post was just filled with shit (or something similar). So dont insult the squishy xenos or I come and insult your squishy gods. (Insert reputation as senior Chaos hater.)

Please take care not to insult armies like this. You're going to get a whole lot of people mad like that.

Writer of crappy fics, I hope you might derive some enjoyment from them.

INDEED!

The Dark Eldar are the best xenos race in 40k. Speed over armor styled forces that flit about on the battlefield, killing with every strike while dodging every reprisal. Twisted pain-seeking hunts that allow them to sustain themselves by bringing suffering to every other living thing. And a society based around the trade of slaves, acquisition of slaves and the skill of treachery that each individual possesses.

I hope they change the population limit in the third one. I want to field fifty terminators instead of three! I demand overkill!

They desperately need to learn a thing or two from Firestorm over kronus

Good god if they actually make DoWIII like that, id buy like 20 copies just for the hell of it

Unfortunately, this is just a pipe dream and they probably want to make it into a mmo/ starcraft multiplayer clone that has been excessively watered down...
