Exactly. It's slow, and has no strategic variety to speak of. This game seems to have done everything on the opposite side of what the original dow did. It's fun if one likes to play cat and mouse using 3 or 4 units, chasing each other around the points for the entire game.
Every game plays out the same after tier2 since there just aren't enough options to choose from.
Relic has been putting a great deal of effort into supporting this game, but I'd rather them just forget about dow2 and get a move on to dow3(or just get back to patching dow1). This game needs much more than just balance fixes.
