Warhammer 40k: Dawn of War 2
So you're saying that the Orks are invading Caldaris, HOME of the Blood Ravens Chapter, they have a Strike Cruiser in orbit but the marines are needed elsewhere?

The gameplay is horribly monotonous. The only variation you are offered is to pick which soldiers you will bring with you, and that seems to solve no real purpose as you can complete any map with any group. The leveling aspect doesn't really do anything.
My biggest bit of confusion is with the ranking system at the end of a battle. It ranks you on number of enemy killed, how many times your officers got killed, and how quickly you completed the map. The first 2 can be easily maxed out by the slow advancement of your troops from one point of cover to the next, which seems to be the bulk of the intended gameplay. The 3rd, however, seems nearly impossible to max out because the standards are too high. I am cheating like a mad man with the trainer from this site. I have all my troops and any assisting troops (which is almost never) at mega health status and every enemy i see set to min health as quickly as possible. Running through the level at a focused dash towards each objective, i still barely make max ranking sometimes, and without cheating, it would be completely impossible to do such.
The lack of building stuff in campaign mode and previously mentioned grievances makes me have to say this "The campaign mode is not a RTS game. It is a loosely troop based action game with no story. That is not what I wanted and thus I am disappointed by my purchase. Thanks for nothing."
Not really an invasion, but if they had some space marines to spare, they wouldn't send down a commander and a tactical squad would they? The "invasion" is a band of orcs present on calderis fighting 100 marines max over 3 planets.
So the tactical part of the combat is very cool.Much better than classic RTS where what you do is build a giant army and attack no tactics whatsoever.If you fail repeat.I then played Dawn of War and its expansion and thats what i did every single mission.Boring
if it does for you you are just a noob in warfare as you dont know what cover actually does, second ur talking about chapters and stuff but most of you dont even know the history behind of the 40k series you'l see that subsector aurelia (the planets in the campaign) are not exactly like base planets but recruitment planets MEANING that the blood raven marines come from those planets but dont actually use it as an home,
