Anyone playing this game?

I just get it and because I dont have time to play it I am very sad :frown:
To me it is one of best RTS. It is extraordinary. Rush doesnt work, camping in base doesnt work. Chaos fraction have units which bleed if they arent in fight etc.

Well COH (Company of heroes) using same engine and conception of WH 40000:DoW.
I also love today's RTS but sometimes I just need scifi.
Rember StarCraft :)

WH 40K:DoW have some nice stuff like fatality kill of special units. It is amazing.
Mech would crush enemy grunt with powerfist if grunt is low on energy instead to fire bullets on him etc.

Dawn of War is much older than Company of Heroes.

I think Company of Heroes is a refined version of DoW.

Do you have Winter Assault and Dark Crusade? I played the original DoW and found it lacking a bit in the storyline. I haven't tried the expansion yet.

CoH is the finest RTS since StarCraft.

I have not seen any RTS that balances the elegance of simplicity, the differences between the 3 factions yet not favoring any one faction, and the replayability of StarCraft.

I have only DoW. As I read Winter Assault brings one more race and Dark Crusade brings two more races so if you install all three you have in mp seven races.

About balance all races have their advantages and disadvantages but if you are good in game you could find what is your favorite race.
Example:
Orc are excelent in close combat but sucks on longe range combat, but then Orcs have machines like catapult to put their grunts in enemy base or they have Big Hevy transport truck.
Imperial space marines are best balance race but again they dont have any superb unit so if map favors close combat or long range combat marines could be kick by specialistic race.

I will get CoH because now I have PC that can run that game very well.

CoH rules. The only drawback is there are only 2 sides, American and German. Multiplayer map is a bit lacking. But the campaign is excellent.
