You know, I really, REALLY wanted this to be a successor to your failed DOW 2 and a continuation along DOW 1. However, after playing, I can't help but feel like I'm playing ++heresy redacted++ starcraft. Like sure you add a bunch of new heroes and cool skills to the units, but what the hell is this? It feels more like a MOBA title than a god ++heresy redacted++ RTS. What are you guys trying to appeal to? This new generation of RTS's where everything is over-simplified and generic? And what the hell is up with this "core" ++heresy redacted++? Where's annihilation? Where's all the core concepts of the first DOW game?
That's all I wanted really from DOW 3, and from your trailers, I could have sworn you finally learned from your mistakes and improved upon it. Albeit, you did very much so improve from DOW 2, but this is just not what I wanted. The modders for DOW have basically made the game what we wanted. They added a ++heresy redacted++ ton of factions with so many end game choices. AND NO, I DON'T MEAN THE UNIT TRAITS. I mean as in there are actual UNITS that you can use. Non of this hero or special unit b.s. And the best thing about those mods were the feeling of advancement. With this, I can't help but feel like its just a game to see whose hero can ++heresy redacted++ you up more, and it just brings me back to DOW 2. A game I really did not want and regret to still own. I haven't touched that game aside from the tutorial and simply uninstalled it since I forgot to try to get a refund.
LONG STORY SHORT: You mixed too much ++heresy redacted++ together that the game, for me at least, is undesirable. I will be attempting to cancel my pre-order and I'll simply wait till you get your ++heresy redacted++ together. In my eyes, you basically made a Halo wars 2. You got the general direction but fell short in the execution. Thank god you allowed us to actually play the game before hand or this would've felt like another No Mans Sky for me.
Just look at the UHA mods for DOW and put that in here instead. Not this cartoon styled star-craft rip off.
