First off, let me clarify I loved DoW3's beta & I've pre-ordered the Limited Edition, so this post isn't bashing on the game.
However, I am worried for DoW3's mass appeal a few months after its release.
My reasoning is this: Relic have seemingly failed to give the initial games launch enough depth & content to warrant people's dedication. This could range from the fact that their will only be ONE multiplayer mode at launch, or that a historically low THREE Races will be playable at launch.
It's a shame the one game mode they decided to launch DoW3 with was the most 'Moba-like' one. DoW3 now has this meme-worthy stigma that Relic turned Dawn of War into a MOBA (which is completely wrong, but the idiots out there won't change their mind)
Now this isn't an issue for myself & many others here as we love Wh40k, Dawn of War & wish to support Relic (hoping they'll eventually make DoW4)
However, most of the more casual newer players to Dawn of War may very well abandon the game/series & not come back. Not even when expansions are released. And quite frankly, that makes me sad.
Even though we fans will always be there to play & enjoy the game, I fear that DoW3 won't feel like it has a fully fleshed out player base & community like DoW1 did, and how DoW2's game mode 'The Last Stand' did.
What are your thoughts, and how do you think Relic can rectify this?
Personally, I hope they release another/more multiplayer game modes asap.
So I created this character at least 6 years ago, it was really dear to me, it was my warboss, my embodiment in 40k.
I don't wanna go into much details about him, the point is that I finally made a miniature about him.
Do you guys have a 40k character that really dear to you and are your own creations?
I had over 4,000 hours in DoW 1 and DoW 2, and still support Relic and changes they bring to their games.
I am a terrible person, I know.
But I give you my word that I'll check every topic about the game being terrible!
"It lacks personality"
or "It is not what real fans wanted"
or "The balance is***(I played 10 hours)"
or "I'm not buying because Angelous is able to jump"...
I'll be there! So those who are abandoned can still get enough attention!
I love the game and I'm so bad!
Please, forgive me...
P.S. Is supporting terrorism the next step after supporting Relic?
