STRIKE FROM THE SKIES, BROTHERS!!

>> No.15843827

I have always loved "Shatter their skies!" Always. There has never been anything I've loved hearing more, no single line.

I also really liked the Dreadnoughts. I haven't had a chance to get into DoW2 because money issues, but I hear they have both Imperial and Chaos dreadnoughts back in by the Chaos Rising expansion, so I can't wait to hear that.

Also, I found out about this on /tg/: "Drive me closer, I want to hit them with my sword."

That pales in comparison to playing Orks after the Flash Gits were added, and then building nothing but shootas, flash-gitz, and a some tankbustas for rokkit support.

The entire fucking screen becomes tracer-fire, in all fucking directions, meanwhile the belligerent ork-speach continues constantly. And the best fucking part of it all, is everything you're going up against is somehow dying despite wild and inaccurate firepower.

Brought a fucking tear to my eyes. A big manly, Ork tear.

Use that librarian for a challenge. If you want to go easy mode, just use the best four; tarkus, avitus and the dreadnaught. And man, don't play on the hardest difficulty, no matter what others say. It is unforgiving. Boss fights can take upwards of 30 minutes if you have the wrong gear.

>> No.15845219

>>15845186

The final level is upwards of 30 minutes on normal, no matter your gear. I don't think I know anyone who didn't go running like a little bitch from Ulkair.

Also, people don't use Tarkus and Avitus?

>> No.15845287

>>15845219
I use them all the time. I think you have to be VERY good at micro to beat the game with the other specialist units. I use avitus to suppress, then get tarkus to mop up with either grenades or artillery if the situation calls it. Force commander for taunting and taking aggro, and my dreadnaught for elite units.

But holy moly, i was playing dawn of war 2 on ther second to hardest difficulty, and i remember that one mission after angel gate. Had to battle the farseer i think, jesus christ. Had one shot attacks that killed my entire squad. Took me 10 times to beat that mission. And even when i did i felt that it wasn't worth it.

>> No.15845306

>>15845287

Pretty much.

Playing on Normal meant was like having Terminator armour on everyone. You feel neigh unstoppable no matter how many orks, tyranids, eldar crashed at your heels.

Go one step beyond that and you actually need to start thinking and planing logically. Just trying to play Warhero will get you killed so fast you'll be spending most of your days doing hit and run to revive a single squad member.

>> No.15845334

>>15845306
Speaking of which, what the hell happened to the difficulty in retribution? I could solo nearly whole maps with one unit. Most times, i literally put no thought into any of my tactics, just point and click.

And i know a lot of people hated on DOW 2 for being different, but i liked it. It had more cinematic moments and felt more engaged. It lost the epic scale of the setting, but it felt more immersed in the story of the blood ravens.

>> No.15845674

>>15845334

I did not like DOW 2 as much as the original but it was still OK, bought it cheap on steam.

Skirmish AI was horribly, horribly bad however.

Retribution might have been easier, i cant directly compare as i have not bothered playing the Blood Raven part of the game yet, but the Tyranids certainly were easy mode.

I never had my Tyrant go down on the hardest difficulty except in the scripted event on the second level, it just steamrolled everything.

Sadly, Tau are currently with most of the non-imperial armies in 40k. Not really worth spending your time and money on. Almost all of them have outdated codices (nid and D.Eldar being the only exceptions), and their relative power-level is still far below GW's poster-children... and likely will remain that way *IF* they ever get a revamp.

It's not very subtle or complex, so not Tzeentch. Maaybe nurgle with a stretch, since he does it to simplify things and be lazy, and it's destruction and degradation of the world. Not Slaanesh, because he does it for other reasons than 'fire pretty'. It does, however, involve massive amounts of indiscriminate, horrible (or possibly 'orrible) death, which is very Khornate.

Alright, sorry for bumping a bit older thread, but I felt it would be better than just to create a new thread or make an unrelated post in an existing thread.

Been doing a few missions in Chaos Rising, including one of those optional missions that you need to do within three days. So far, I've yet to encounter a mission where if you do well enough, you earn additional deployments per day.

Have they scrapped that concept in CR?

Dark Crusade was basically the pinnacle of Dawn of War voice acting. They finally replaced the lissssping piggy voice of the Chaos Lord with Eliphas, for one. Not to mention the helmet.

But also, don't forget
Commisar
"If you will not serve on the battlefield, you will serve on the firing line!"
"On charges of cowardice, you are sentenced to death!"
"I will have someone's head for this!"

Assassin
"ONE CHANCE IS ALL I NEED"
"TELL YOUR MEN TO STAY OUT OF MY WAY"
"I CAN CHANGE THE TIDE OF BATTLE"

Chaos
"DAMNATION! WHERE IS OUR SUPPORT!"
"DIE, LOYALIST SCUM!"

The problem with Soulstorm was not just the voice acting, it was the script. Instead of colourful lines, squads just basically said "X Squad here" "We move" "We attack". No wonder the voice actors couldn't get into it. Relic really should have handled that one.
