GFWL is gone along with the inadequate trueskill ranking system. Steam and ELO ftw.

Why are you judging without even RTFA? Every race has its own campaign and its own unique touch. Obviously the tyranids don't have a briefing room style conversation while the imperial guard discuss battlefield tactics and the eldar bicker amongst themselves.

Every race in retribution has a single player campaign just like dark crusade/soulstorm only better.

And STILL haven't read the article eh..?

Before stating things like this that are wholly untrue, it's probably worth taking a look at the article, so you can avoid looking like an idiot...

DoW2 is a really nice game!

For everyone still playing it, download Codex Edition mod from the forums. Its a great mod that makes the game play more to the TT rules, stats etc. The guy in charge also made the heroes more distinct, and he has a great artist on the team that has created some great models!

Heck they even added Wierd Boyz and Plague Marines as heroes! The other cool feature is that they have created badges and color palettes for almost EVERY single chapter/faction of each race, both pre and post horus heresy.

Their biggest ambition was to add IG as a 5th faction but Relic was faster Here's hoping they find a way to add something else!

so you don't get bored of building the same base over and over again like on DOW1.

it just gets boring.

DOW2 is so much better.
