Any avid gamers of RTS here who have played these 2 games? I just bought Warhammer 40000 Anthology last weekend and is very impressed with the gameplay and graphics, quite hooked nw. I used to play WC3 quite actively a few years back. Battlenet rules man! Heard about the Warhammer game a few years back liao but becoz of my low-specs pc, i never got it.

Which game u guys prefer and why? Warcraft 3 is the original Reign of Chaos + the expansion Frozen Throne. Warhammer 40000 includes the original Dawn of War, expansion Winter Assault and the latest Dark Crusade.

I personally feel that Warhammer single player mode is better than WC3. I know WC3 main attraction is its online aspect, Battlenet. I haven't try Warhammer online mode yet..

Dawn of war is more of a hi tech strat kind... i like the reinforcements concent...

WC3 is great graphics. great magiccs.. and i am a Warcraft fan since their first release.. no regrets ever since...

but WC series is time tested.. so i must say it has stood its ground...

long live the Orcs ! FOR O G R I M M A R ! ! ! :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

I agreed.. The WC series is definitely one of the best if not the best in its genre..:thumbsup: I have been a fan since part 1 till now too.. My fav has always been the Orcs.. Maybe thats y in Warhammer 40000k, my fav is the Orks..:bsmilie:

I feel Warhammer's learning curve is slightly steeper than WC3.. Any1 agree?

agreed. DOW's gameplay needs more brain juice.. and of course.... require more time to learn the AI's moves...

not easy.

I love both games :D Anyway, in Warhammer 40k, how do you add units into your squad? The attach and detach button on the commander don't seem to work for all units. For example in WarCraft you could press shift+(squad number). :confused:

you reinforce them. add the number of men only.

you cannot add other units into you squad.

commanders can join any squad they wish. .. explore explore.... space marines easier to learn also.

But only some units the commander can attach and detach. i cannot seem to put a vehicle into the same team number as the commander. But if i select the whole screen, i can put all of them as team 1. :think:

IIRC. commander can only ride the final transport bulidable from the spaceport. the vehicle where u need a relic to be captured before buliding.

normal infantry units will ride the normal rhino transport.

of course u cannot attach a commander unit to the jetpack infantries la.. and the terminators. but can attach to normal squads.

each squad can haf 1 commander or 1 apo. :bsmilie:

ok some confirmations. Units attached with Force commander can only ride the Land Raider, and that will be the only transport that can carry terminators and commanders. ;)


as for the blood daemon, latest update will be. complete termination in 2.5 minutes using 4 squads of space marines with plasma pistols upgraded and all upgrades complete.

;) shiok bo....

I love the whole Dawn of War series. Especially zooming in to unit level and watching my Space Marines tango with the Orks.
