Ok i just watch some of the footage of the gameplay for dow3 here are my impressions and thoughts everyone has different tastes in what they what for the game for best results in build a community and appealing to the masses i think it was a good choice in sticking with larger battles which i think a majority of the fans what.It also may be good for sales and building up a larger community which help games development in long term. It seem like they went in the direction of sc2 which reminds me of when sc2 came out with their footage which was successful when it came out. It does not show any cover or any features to gameplay so its early in development which they may add to the game at a later date it just shows what art direction they were going for which seems comic(blood) like and had some footage of big battles and abilities.
-The good things are that its too early to tell where there going to take this.
-they can take this in many directions add stuff from dow1/dow2 or take in a different path.
-the game does look good.
