New races for DoWII

Post by Aeddon on Wed Jul 16, 2008 11:43 pm

Personally I would like to see the inquisition have a larger presence in this game. Different chapters of Space Marines would also be nice.

I'll vote Tyranid in the hope that we get them and all the nid players finally shut up about not getting them as a race in the original DOW's, even though you could just download the mod...

And yeah ,there should be a couple of varient SM Chapters, they could make it like the Steel Legion mod, when at the at the start of a skirmish, you select whether you want to be an mech infantry force, or a heavy tank force. They could do it like that with the chapters of legend! It might be a bit too much work though...

I've heard that gw and blizzard came into a little clash when starcraft 1 came out.

Gw stated that the zerg was too similar too the tyranids and suggested copyritght crimes.

They later calmed down with a deal that blizzard will never make zerg in miniature games and gw will never have tyranids in comp games.

It's just something i heard though, it might not be true, but if it is, it would explain why they have been left out!

Still pretty BS though, 40k has been out far longer than starcraft. And if you ask me DoW is a much better game than starcraft has ever been!

I say bring on the =][= !!!!

There are a lot of rumours about the whole GW-Blizzard conflict. I believe that you are close to the truth Brother Klomster in regards to GW becomming upset with the "similarities" aka Copying of the Zerg and Tyranids, I have not heard of any "you make games, we'll make miniatures" agreements though. Doesn't really sound viable somehow.

I did read that the reason the Tyranids have not been represented in the DOW series thus far is because they will be very hard to do properly, what with the whole planet's makeup being taken over by spores etc... (I also got collaborating info from a friend that worked at Relic, and designed the orcs for the first game!). That being said the new game is exhibiting a far greater level of sophistication in terms of graphics, and game play, etc... so maybe the Tyranids will be comming soon.

I really would love to see the Grey Knights properly represented in the game though. A cool way of doing that could be to only allow the Grey Knights to be deployed if they are faceing Chaos!!!

I really would love to see Tyranids in DOWII, as they've been left out of all the expansions of DOW and they are a rather popular army that many of my friends play.

- Disclaimer: I've been forced to post this a gun point by my friend who is a Tyranid freak, any/all of this posts material (with the exeption of this Disclaimer) may be fake.

i would have to say , improved orks , cmom i rather have a stompa than a squigoth to play with.

note having a proper reprisentation of the difrent ordos would be nice ,so would vindicators and bikes .

Chaos should have more variaty as well , thas was one of my gripes about DOW

note , did you know that warcraft was supose to be warhammer but blizz and GW had a split over copywrights or somthing.

Yes, i've heard that warcraft was supposed too be warhammer based in the beginning, but when blizzard was nearly done, Gw just said like.
-Nah, we don't wan't a game anymore.

And warcraft went on becoming one of the most well known things on the planet.

Sometimes gw suck... at everything!
And they fail epicly equally as often!

Do I detect a bitter tone in your post Brother Klomster? Razz

The thing to remember is that that Gw's primary goal is to be a successful business, it's all about the $$$$$.

I belive that the owners/runners of GW do genuinely love their games/products, but like anyone ealse would be in their position, they are out to make the big bucks.

It doesn't cost $75 to make 5 GKTs, and even with gas prices as they are and all other expences considered HEALTHY profits are being made.

That being said, I am fully aware of the situation and still support them. Better have youth be part of a healthy community than getting into trouble. sunny

i would have to say , improved orks , cmom i rather have a stompa than a squigoth to play with.

I agree a stompa would be an awesome addition to the game. However, if you start to incorporate this type of unit you are starting to cross the line into Epic/Apoc games. I have NO problem with that!!! But don't think that DOW should go down that road. Make a seperate game for Epic/Apoc bounce

Stompa is cool.

Gargantuan squiggoth is really cool!

A stompa is not very cool, unless you put the guns on, it's the guns that are cool!
Dakka-kannon ftw?
Or supa-gatler, weapons made of sheer killyness!



Oh and Constantine, i was referring too the fact that GW frequently does epicly fail things from time too time.
Only thing i remember now though is not keeping warcraft as warhammer!
Imagine the gw games that could have been!
