Been on the fence about buying this game, long time fan of relic, have every single on of their RTS games with 1000's of hours. I regularly play COH2 and was looking into the player count today for DOW 3 and noticed that the peak number of players this weekend was around 9000 players, by comparison COH2 had roughly 7000 players. This is pretty disturbing to me given that COH2 is a 5 year old game and the number of players on steam right after launch for DOW 3 was 25,000+.
Are there some major flaws in the game or something? What would cause such a massive drop in players? Also the steam reviews are pretty concerning, everyone is saying wait wait wait, but the game looks pretty interesting. What bothers me the most is there is apparently only something like 8 maps and 1 game mode, and people are saying the campaign is nothing more than a glorified tutorial. The game is $72 Canadian thanks to our currency being worthless so its not cheap.
What do you guys think? Wait, or buy?
