Dawn of War II Patch Tomorrow

The Dawn of War II Website announces that the "There is Only War" patch that recently left beta testing will be released tomorrow for Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War II. This page outlines all the changes in There is Only War (remember when patches just had version numbers?), including bug fixes, map fixes, networking improvements, and extensive balance tweaks, though it neglects to mention the eight new maps it adds to Relic's sci-fi RTS sequel. The patch is expected at 11:00 am PDT, which is 2:00 pm EDT.

Well the impression I'm getting is that it's quite a bit like DoW: Dark Crusade's campaign where you can upgrade your 'hero' or what not, which was pretty damn cool.

I'll no doubt get it when it's on sale

I got bored of single-player pretty quick. The missions are too generic and the levels too repetitious. I've never really cared about loot or leveling so they don't offer much incentive for me to continue playing the game.

Absolutely. The singleplayer is an absolute blast thanks to the RPG-like levelling and item drops, while the lack of base management means the game is much more about action and properly commanding your squads. The multiplayer is also a great deal of fun when it works but is very tedious when it doesn't, which is unfortunately most of the time.

It's a great game overall.

I was thinking about grabbing this game mainly for the single player component. Worth it or no?

I will play MP, but I'm primarily in it for SP

Considering I still had lag problems during the beta patch I'm very doubtful that the final patch will the improve the situation much. It's a shame that the matchmaking is so terrible as the game itself is actually very fun.
