I can remember back when I first played coh1 about ten years ago,and I did a victory point game for the first time. I was so angry,because of the focus on this new system. As time went on I decided to really give it a chance and embrace this change. The Victory point system is a standard now as far as the coh franchise is concerned. The great thing is that i can always go back and play annihilation. When I tested DOW3 this past weekend I went into it with an open mind and an open heart and I was pleasantly surprised. It was love at first sight,I had a great time playing some 3 vs 3. It was fun. I have not personally felt that way about a new game in very long time. I see so much negativity about the new system and the game has not even launched yet. Lets give relic a chance to do what they do best. Its not out of the ballpark that a annihilation mode can be added down the road. Great Job Relic. A positive post for a change.
