Pretty much every RTS is who can produce troops the fastest...

Try that in DoW2 and watch as you get steamrolled. Unit preservation is very important and even having a larger/upgraded army doesn't guarantee victory.

micro, macro, map awarness, map control, economy, etc, all have their parts to play.

even C&C3, a classic spam troops RTS, doesn't depend solely on speed and how quick you can build units

Never played MP in DOW2 so I wouldn't know. However it was like that in COH a little.

Yes I know the other aspects of an RTS game. I was pointing out to that guy one of them.

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...
the main problem is it would have been nice if tau or necron would have had their single player campaigns instead or imperial guard........

Any faction other than Imperial Guard would have made no sense. Did you seriously think the Inquisition just sit there and do nothing? I'm surprised they didn't make it to CR outside of being a non playable faction.

Can't wait for this, so much better then the crappy FPS games (Crysis, COD) that are commonly played on the PC.
