    Actually, I think my COMPUTER is superior because it is better.

    I don't recall you saying that. Maybe I didn't pay attention well enough.

    lol well that remark you made earlier about reading minimum specs makes you sound arrogant. Maybe it's just me @_@ but paychecks don't allow much computer spending for me. Here's what I heard. "Maybe if you had a better job you could buy a better computer"

    The only thing I'm actually lacking in though is dual processors. Radeon R600, HD 2600 (512 ram) That should cut it for graphics right? BTW b4 u say buying a radeon was a bad move, it was only $50 lol

    As RAM gets older, it gets more expensive. In not too long, DDR3 will probably be cheaper than DDR2.


    My friend has DoW2 and as soon as I get my computer up and running, I'll be getting it.
    He's got a sick win ratio, and is Rank 11 now. He's been playing a little too much. Can't wait to team with him. :p

    I've only played one skirmish as Tyranid, and it was pretty fun.

    I stick to the iconic figures of Warhammer 40,000: the Space Marines. Specifically the Ultramarines, because the first Warhammer 40k set I bought was Battle for Macragge, which starred the Ultramarines in their battle against the vicious xenos (Tyranids).

    The only real problem with the game is that certain races are better early and some late. Space Marines are far too strong late game and 3v3. Tyranids are far too strong 1v1 or early game. Eldar and Orks sit somewhere in between even though Eldar usually win SUPER late game (Avatar).

    Mostly though, it's very well balanced. I can't believe they don't have genestealers, Land speeders, or Warbikes/Jetbikes @_@

    You gotta remember that it's how you USE the units of your race. Countering units with other units is a good idea, yes, but you can very well take down melee units with ranged units, if you set them up properly.

    I'd agree. I found tyranids difficult to play in 3v3 matches, but I did pretty well in 1v1.

    fuck ultramarines, go black templar. i dont think they included landspeeders or those fast attack is since this is more infantry tactical warfare, with a couple vehicles mixed in as support. and anyways, i dont think anyone really uses land speeders in dow.

    How are the Black Templar heretics? o_O

    Lorewise they are more zealous and fanatical and dedicated to the Emperor than the Ultrasmurfs are.

    Debate about the lore?
    [​IMG]
    New troll here.

    On topic i've finished the campaign and the last mission is awesome.
    Now I'm on multi and i found the game fuckin' hard.
    I hate when you spent so much ressources on big vehicule and getting pwnt in 2 sec by anti vehicule infantry.This is so much rock pepper scisor.
    And I dislike the fact that 1st tier unit become obselete so fast.
    Basically you use them just to capture few strategic point early then tech mass vehicules.
    Oh and I figured out what make the game laggy, It's their particle emmitter.I don't know how they made them but slow down the game as hell.

    First you say you hate how anti-vehicle is too good, and then complain that all you get late game is vehicles? I don't get it.

    I'm not sure if you're playing computers or what, but online most games end before many vehicles get out. If they do, there are plenty of infantry or heavy infantry that can take them down.

    I'm having real troubles with Plasma Cannons and Scout Squads with Tyranids. Knockback owns my Lictor who I usually use to shred up Plasma Cannons. Also, the Scouts can spot my Lictor @_@ Ravener seems to be the only counter to Plasmas + Scouts and I hate him.

    Yeah, those damn shotguns own Tyranids. What about using warriors with the bio gun thingy? That would probably take them down pretty decent.

    I could take down a hero unit in a one-on-one with my Scouts /w combat shotguns, pretty fun to watch a hero get knock-backed every second by a bunch of scouts!
