Maybe something like "Dawn of War: Warriors", or even "Dawn of Warriors". Indicating upfront that it's an offshoot, not a successor to the main line.
Do you think it would have been better received that way?
Longtime fans might still grumble about the direction the company is taking, but they wouldn't criticize the game itself.
And Relic could still promise a main line successor in the future.
What do you guys think?
