I've just be round my cousins and I had a little go at Dawn of War (that warhammer RTS), I've gotta say it's one of the most exciting RTSs ever with loads of animations for each unit, tons of explosion and genereally hectic battles with orcs being blown into the sky It's the funnest RTS going. So, I wonder if this will be the kind of thing we can expect in AOE3-- i hope it will be!

DoW is based on fiction completely, it seems to me its a bit like wc3, but AoE 3 will probably be a more advanced game than DoW and obviously it is history based and wont have any monsters.

Dawn of War is a pretty fun game but the lack of economy annoys me. I hope AoE3 will be better.

Dawn of War is a lot more tactics and battle orientated and a lot less strategy and micro/economy orientated. It focuses more on the blowing shit to smitherines, cool visuals and smart thinking (Fire Prisms & Terminators into someone's base at the most annoying moment ) than on building up an economy, advancing your civ and trying to get one up on your opponent through counters and better techs. The counters are still there, but they are a lot more simple... I think there's only something like 5 unit types (lots of actual units though) in the whole game - Infantry, Heavy Infantry, Vehicles, Commanders and Daemons.

It's a good game, but immeasurably different from Age games, and if AoE3 is anything like the last 3 games from Ensemble, then I doubt it will be like Dawn of War in many respects.

There is one thing I want in Age of Empires III that is in Dawn of War: the ability to make your own banner. Of course, in Age of Empires III terms, that would be the ability to make your own flag.

At my signal unleash HELL.

I meant the kind of mayhem that ES talks about, I was thinking it'll be like the kind of mayhem you get in DoW With all those cannons and guns :O

The cinematic factor in DoW was awesome. A battle between two forces would have loads of explosions and blood and fire. I'm hoping we get big explosions from cannons in AoE3, along with a lot of smoke and craters and blood and corpses littering the field...

I love DoW, my favorite RTS up to date. I'm guessing it'll be less hard to micro your economy than in previous games (no drop points), and from the looks of things, it should have better graphics.

However, DoW is completely different, it's sci-fi (IT IS NOT STARCRAFT/WARCRAFT!) and much "darker", it also uses different ideas ("small" front line battles, rather than civ vs. civ).

Something I hope they incorporate from DoW are the awesome killing animations (adds great visuals to the game) and squads, which makes for great strategic value, and helps micromanagement in large battles.


I think signatures are a waste of bandwith, space, time. They are useless, unimportant, stupid, created for no purpose, and anyone who has one is stupid.

You have wasted approximately 7.2343 seconds of your life by reading this.

I've heard that Warhammer40k is a very exciting, action-packed RTS game with really fun battles with lots of fighting tactics.

I will definitely get it!

I really don't know, but from the impressions that I got from hearing other harcore AoK players, the battle ideas in Warhammer are quite fresh and captivating, and I highly doubt AoE3 will evolve much from previous Age games regarding the military aspects... But, who knows, maybe AoE3 will -- we just have to wait until more info is released .

Off topic I know, but I wish to thank you for having made the 2 versions of World maps that you did for AoC.

Thanks for noticing, PhoenixTRD. How long ago did you download that map? I did it about 5 years ago, and I'm surprised that someone actually remembers that I designed it .

Pardon me for my off-topic reply, RiderOfEternity .
