    I know all the units do different damage and have different amounts of morale and HP... I know that, but they all have the same "kind" of units, not exactly the same but the same kind. The only race I can think of offhand that doesnt have a jumper *omfg I always forget the names lol* Is Necrons and Imperial guard I think. Each race should have there own kind of units, with different purposes, ones that would make them more unique. Btw if you look at sisters of battle, most of there buildings and such and there builders is just like the imperial guard, then its just throwing in a bunch of space marine stuff.

    Also I wasn't being serious about 20 races lolz. Also I know a lot of the races has a bit of a different feel but not a whole lot that really makes them more unique and diverse. Only a couple races have this, Necrons as a example. If they added more units, and actual different kinds and way different fighting styles it would make the game better. but the more the races, the harder it is to make them all diverse and unique.
    Also I wasn't whining lol.

    tl;dr to be honest.

    I want to see all the races and units. Well almost. The overly gay units can be left out, and the really minor races like Sisters of Battle can be too, although I really liked a few of their units.

    I'd say the new one should have more unique races, so like SM, Orc, Tyran, Eldar, and Nec. Then add the rest in expansions (you know they will want to make money off expansions, no way they'll put them all in one).

    Honestly I'm just really glad Tyranids are in now! Hurray!

    Edit: Punwisp, it's really hard to come up with more than a few styles of races. You have to make them within the bounds of the game. That's the reason they gave for Tyranids not being in the game. They said they couldn't see how the game mechanics could support the race properly. The races they have now are done perfectly. Tyranids and no more I say.

    Yea.
    Or even better:
    Forces of Chaos, either Forces of the Imperium or Space Marines &Imperial Guard (seprate), Orks, Eldar, and Tyranids. Nercrons, Dark Eldar, and Tau in expansion.

    I would like to see Daemons of Chaos and Chaos Space Marines seperate. Also a Space Marines and Imperial Guards united does not make sense, even if they are on the same side. Both have a different view on the Emperor, the Space Marine seeing him as the Master of Mankind while the Imperial Guard see him as the ultimate God.

    Also they are seperate armies fully ready to fight eachother, if they are provoked. Also the alot of Space Marines tend to look down upon the Imperial Guards, seeing them as inferior. Exceptions to this are less zealous Chapters like the Space Wolves.

    But rather than adding Sister of Battle I would like to see Witch Hunters army or perhaps Inquisition army (having Ordo Malleus(Daemonhunters), Ordo Xenos(Alien Hunters) and Ordo Hereticus(Witch Hunters)). Also no more Grey Knights for the Space Marines, even if Ordo Malleus are not included in an expansion.

    But from what I know, Dawn of War II will only have 4 races at start and the 4 races have already been confirmed. The most likely candinates for the first expansion are Imperial Guard and Chaos Space Marines.

    Sounds good to me

    Btw rites of war is a pretty old turn based game, I would say its kinda like a board game style.

    They're speculated to be in the first expansion, perhaps alongside the IG.

    I'll miss IG and Tau, but I got Tyranids to hold me of till expansions. SM is always fun too, just too OP in the DoW1.

    They weren't OP, they were about quality over quantity, and were quite advanced, and the most well known faction.

    At one point I thought IM, SOB and SM were all the same faction and I was wondering "Why the fuck are they fighting each other"

    Watched that trailer + a few others. Completely blown me away, especially the gameplay ones.
    Initially I thought that SC2 would just >>> DoW2 by a mile, but now I'm not so sure :p

    DoW2 looks so much better imo. Especially with the Tyranids now in it.
