THQ On Dawn of War III

THQ plans a new direction for Dawn of War III, reports Eurogamer, where they have first details on the next installment in Relic's sci-fi real-time strategy series. "We're working on the next-generation of that franchise right now," THQ's Danny Bilson tells them. "I feel like an ass saying it's fantastic, but it is. And we're going to do something with it you haven't seen before. Preserving some things that have always been great about the first two generations of it, going back to 1 on some things, 2 on some things, and 3 will bring us some new things. When you see it you're going to go, whoa. I promise." He also strongly hints the game could be announced in August at Gamescom, and offers a general overview of what to expect: "Now Dawn of War III, either way, is going to have a much larger strategic component to it, more of a global battle going on with little tactical things, sort of MMO-like."

...this is what the MP experience of DoW2 was. Every patch screwed something up, each race was horribly overpowered at one point in the cycle. If they aren't planning on tossing out everything DoW2 when it comes to MP then I'm already disappointed in DoW3. They need to go back to the drawing board. Who wants to go play more DoW2 at this point?

That's exactly why you don't introduce another area of potential balance issues. If they have enough trouble balancing MP as it is you don't introduce a complex customization system that needs its own babysitting. I'm all for neat things in games man but you never stop to think of how they would be implemented. That's without getting into the fact that I really don't want THQ selling items that would be used in MP and you know that's exactly what would happen.
