Dawn of War 3 Sets

SEGA issued the following statement to Eurogamer saying that they are moving on from supporting Dawn of War 3 due to disappointing sales, and there will be no further content for the real-time strategy sequel:
While Dawn of War 3 has a dedicated player base, it didn't hit the targets we were expecting at launch, and it hasn't performed the way we had hoped since. It's been tough for us as professionals who want to make great games for our players, and for us as people who care a lot about what we do.

When a game underperforms, plans need to change. With Dawn of War 3, we simply don't have the foundation we need to produce major content. We're working in close partnership with Sega and Games Workshop to determine the best course of action, while shifting focus to other projects within our portfolio.

If SEGA hadn't tried to turn this game into a Fucking MOBA to begin with the sales wouldn't have sucked like they did. This is SEGAs fault and now they are screwing over the fans more because of their bad decisions.

How about going back to the Dark Crusade game mechanics and expand them. Instead of just one world, we go from world to world.

I hated what they did with DoW 2 and 3. I wonder how well DoW 1 and DoW:DC sold in comparison to 2 and 3.

DOW 2 was a bunch of shite. An RTS for people who don't play RTS games.

Stop trying to screw with the known working formula of DOW 1 and make a friggin' RTS. That was all that was needed.

Theres a new Warhammer RTS game coming out, it goes back to the basic RTS game play style of base building and massive armies. That is what I want in an RTS game. none of this bullshit they keep coming up with and limited units pop cap crap.

I miss the good old strategy games, Supcom1, DOW1, C&C Generals. I don't understand how these companies don't see what was successful in the past and build upon that when make a new strategy game, instead of this controller friendly MOBA style E-sport shit pile.

I played DoW 1 and expansions to death. DoW 2 I played for an hour. I didn't buy DoW 3. I think that says it all.

Yeah, chasing trends rather than setting out to make a good game that you actually want to make doesn't usually yield good results. I liked DoW2 (never tried 3) well enough but I too would have preferred they had stuck with and improved upon the foundation set forth in Dark Crusade.

Same thing happen to Company of Heroes, first game was pure awesomeness and then it all went to shit, when they tried to innovate the whole concept with CoH Online.

Company of Heroes 2 kinda redeemed itself, however the internal economy stayed, not quite "lootbox" idea but still had to earn internal currency to unlock Commanders, skins and other perks.

I'm not sure if you can actually spend real money on the ingame currency or not (been a while), however you can still get the same perks by winning games (pvp&pve).

Did a survey not too long ago on Company of Heroes 3, perhaps they will release some news in not too distant future.

Use to love DoW, lets hope they will get back to the original formula.

Make a good game by game makers/players. You end up with a good game.

Make a "good game" by salespeople and you and up with an item.

Relic has made some of the coolest games, but DoW3 was so bad and extremely disappointing. Stuff they took liberties with like backflipping Terminators is such a slap in the face if you give the slightest fuck about 40k.

*grabs Dawn of War box*

See, Sega?! THIS but with better graphics. Nothing else. Don't try to 'innovate', just this game with better graphics. Call it a remaster or a new game, I don't give a damn, just this with better graphics.

Then if it doesn't sell, you can complain.

I didn't buy it because you had a grand total of 3 races, one of which was the shitty Eldar, and a very mediocre single player campaign.

Think about that next time you want to make a Dawn of War game.

This. Dark Crusade was AMAZING. I must have played that thirty times from start to finish. I didn't play Soulstorm very much because at the time it ran like absolute dogshit on my PC. Levels took like 3 minutes to load. But I loved that they expanded it with more races and more maps etc.

I think Soulstorm had like a million races in it. So then I'm supposed to get excited about 3 races in DoW3, and a sp campaign that FORCES me to keep switching between the 3, instead of being able to play through the whole campaign with my chosen race?

No. Fuck playing as the fucking Eldar.

I've looked at it before. the cartoonish graphics just didn't do it for me. Wish there was a demo or something to try the game. Hard to judge RTS from videos.
Thanks for the suggestion though.

Trailer for the game was awesome...but it was all downhill from there.

What happened to the co-op campaign, and why MOBA in a RTS?

After reading this, I might pick this up on Steam. Tried to play through Warcraft 3 again for the first time since release, but couldn't get into it because I already knew the story. Might try this in order to satisfy that niche.
