    And having him in artificer armor is hardly gonna fix that animation.
    I can't remember reading anything that space marines can jump like that with regular power armor, even without armor on they can't make that jump.
    He needs a jet pack to jump like that.

    Your right though much easier to add a jump pack onto artificer Armour.
    Its almost like watching a goblin fanatic swing a ball and fly behind it, except he has a hammer and controls the flight path.
    Its just makes no sense, only jump infantry should receive hammer of wrath.
    Evil is a point of view. God kills indiscriminately and so shall we. For no creatures under God are as we are, none so like him as ourselves.

    So the good old cover system is gone then.
    One of the comments is spot on, it feels like starcraft.

    Wow with every new trailer/gameplay video this game gets worse.

    Yo, Boss, we heard you liked visual effects, so we added visual effects onto your visual effects so that you can have glowy lights everywhere while your closed-top Trukks literally hurl boyz at the enemy.

    Egh.

    Well to be fair, trukks throwing boys does seem like a orkish idea and the morkanaut movement looks cool.
    But looks so bad that everyone is just standing still while firing and even worse that the orks are dead accurate with their weapons.
    It really is Starcraft with a 40k skin and I would rather play Starcraft in that case.

    Some of the animations are nice, like the Gorka(Morka?)naut walking. Has a real heft to to it. Others are...meh. Not sure why the buildings are twitching and spasming, but it's really disturbing. Did they switch in some tyranid animations for ork buildings?

    I assume that they were some cheats or intentional overtuning going on, because those fights were hilariously one-sided. Barely any ork bodies (if any at all). The deffdread struggled with banshees (took a long time), but the boys basically erased them, but then 4 dreads slaughtered a wraithknight with no losses, and that just doesn't seem right.

    They do seem to have made the game super cartoony and, imo, a lot closer to something blizzard would make, I prefer my future to be grim dark with a smattering of witty humour/orks, not the cartoony stuff that's being pushed out, the only thing I did like from the trailer was seeing the gork/morkanaut walking.

    Funny.
    Considering everything else, one might suspect that they tried to make the gork/morkanaut walking silly to match with everything else and yet turned out ot be one of the few things that they got right since most people seem to like that walking.
    Even Arch Warhammer praised it.

    So, apparently this comes out in four weeks? Um, well.

    Was watching (well, trying to stay awake watching) what is theoretically multiplayer gameplay done by IGN. Except for the Imperial Knight being erased from existence in short order, it was hilariously one sided. The eldar blood storm was fairly neat looking, but I'm not particularly impressed by the game play. Lots of sitting around doing nothing, which is puzzling.

    ork video as well:

    I can't for the life of me figure out why the shield generators would be the outermost defenses and not, say, the turrets.

    Wow the eldar utterly owned that Knight.
    But I really hate how the orks hit every time.
    In DoW 2 they had poor accuracy but made up for it in numbers but it looked so cool when you saw the bullets impact all over the place. Now it looks just as silly as it did in DoW 1.
    And of course Angelos looks freaking huge and is still doing moves that not even a space marine could do without armor.
    It just looks so silly.

    Oh, but remember what they said in White Dwarf: 'We wanted to make sure even the tiniest details of the maps and animations felt like they’d be at home in the Warhammer 40,000 universe... if something we've added isn't doing the setting the justice it deserves, we go back and rebuild it and redesign it until it fits...’ (March 2017, pg.34).

    ...Actually, one starts to get the impression that they're just paying lip service...

    My take away was that they are under the impression that Angelos is a primarch. Or that SM grow like orks do.

    Was also confused by the deathwatch squad. Why are they there? Are they better in some way than sternguard would be? Special stuff seems to have its own timer, but can't figure out what limits are on requisition and recruitment. Just a lot of running back to heal.

    Re: Dawn of War 3 gameplay trailer

    So here's a question - One of the pre-order skins is 'Ghost Seer Taldeer'.

    Farseer Taldeer from Dawn of War: Dark Crusade and Dawn of War II: Retribution was from Ulthwe, while the Eldar from Dawn of War III are from Biel-Tan. She had a brother (who was a Ranger working with Alaitoc), who could have been a twin, which would perhaps explain how she ended up in a Wraithknight. The Eldar ending of Dawn of war II: Retribution isn't the canon one though, so did her soulstone get recovered from Kyras, and if so how/when? And how did she then not end up back on Ulthwe?

    Farseer Taldeer from Dawn of War: Tempest was implied to be from Biel-Tan (She introduces herself as 'servant of Biel-Tan', leads the Swordwind to Lorn V, and is apparently a member of the Craftworld seer council). It would make more sense if she was the Ghost Seer fighting as part of the Biel-Tan forces. However then she would also need a twin, which seems like one too many coincidental similarities to Ulthwe-Taldeer given the other similarities between them (both female Farseers named Taldeer who both lead forces to Lorn V at the same time and both of whom have dealings with the Blood Ravens and General Sturnn).

    Or is Biel-Tan-Taldeer actually from Ulthwe, but she's on secondment or something, leads Biel-Tan and Ulthwe forces to Lorn V, goes through the events of Dawn of War: Winter Assault with only the Ulthwe contingent (why bother enlisting the aid of the Swordwind?), then goes through Dawn of War: Ascension (where she isn't recognised by Sturnn, despite them having met only days or hours previously), gets taken by Harlequins on Arcadia and returned to Ulthwe, then goes to Kronos for Dawn of War: Dark Crusade, gets captured and killed, then her soulstone gets recovered by her [twin] brother and Alaitocii Eldar in Dawn of war II: Retribution, who take it to Biel-Tan rather than Ulthwe (or take it to Ulthwe and then she goes on ghost-secondment back to Biel-Tan)?!?

    I didn't think the background mess could become much more convoluted...


    Also, what happened to Macha after dematerialising using the Blade of Lathrilaq at Lorn V? Did... did she magic back to Biel-Tan?

    I've been waiting to get impressions from other people. What I've seen online is fairly mediocre. Much like 2, honestly. Very much a 'gamist' focus, whereas the original was a) something new, and b) tried really hard to connect to the setting. This often seems to be a linked set of random destroy missions: just shields, (pause to heal) turret, (pause to heal) base. Over and over for no reason and with a 40k skin... for no reason. They took the worst element of MOBAs (do repetitive tasks and kill for the sake of killing, both for no discernable reason), and made that the focus of the game, to the point that anything else is removed.

    Steel Division seems a better battle-focused RTS, though obviously the setting is very different.

    Well I got 6 hours of the beta and it really is a starcraft clone which is a shame since I always felt like Relic was the company that made RTS that weren't like Starcraft, they did their own thing.
    So it's really sad that now they just made a starcraft clone.
    Mean there isn't even a point in healing since all your troops except the elites are expendable, your marines, your dire avengers are literally cannon fodder. You build a bunch of them and just throw them at your enemy and if you got more resource points then you can recover from it and outbuild the enemy and eventually grind the enemy down.
    Now for the Orks, this makes sense, that's kinda what they do but it makes no sense for Marines or Eldar to throw lifes away like this and yet it's like the only tactic in the game.

    Lot of first impressions wandering around now. Awful lot of 'not good.' And a lot of defense in the vein of 'good, but not going to give reasons. Stop expecting DoW 1'

    What is offensive is the people who defend the game saying that the game plays just like Company of Heroes 2 which is absolute bullcrap.
