Open Beta, Upcoming Release & the Section
Hello all,

I'm going to be playing the open beta next week, if anyone wishes to join me for a few games then give me a buzz on steam. I have already pre-ordered the game, got it off Green Man Gaming which has it at 25% off so I recommend getting it there if you're considering.

Steam Group: http://steamcommunity.com/groups/wndow
Not exactly sure how we plan to take the section moving forward, I have created a new steam group for us all linked above. It is invite only so just give one of the members a hola to add you. I've invited a few of you to the new group, we could try use the old one but it has so many inactives I thought it'd be better with a fresh start.

Moving Forward

I'm not exactly sure how we want to approach maintaining the section. I've always been one to fight to keep these forums alive but even I can appreciate that this place is a ghost town. In the unlikely event that someone gave me full admin and I could clean up this entire website then I would but I doubt even the people with admin permissions login anymore. I honestly think we can maintain an active presence solely on the Steam group which has discussion/forum capabilities along with Discord for voice chat. We have always been a pretty close-nit group and I'm sure we can make it work. Share your thoughts on this!

Hope everyone is doing well, good to know we've got a third installment less than a month away =)

I'm pretty sure the analogy is 'Close knit', as in the bonds being a thick weave, as opposed to 'close-nit', which sounds like a head lice infestation!

I'll get it, I'll be around, we'll have to Bev'n'beta it for shits and gigs amar.

I'll be playing the beta to get a feel of whether or not I should buy this game. I am not sure I will like the artwork and atmosphere and general feel of the game.

It's truly a shame about WN, we had some great times here.




I dreamed a dream in time gone by; when hope was high and life worth living
I dreamed that love would never die, I dreamed that God would be forgiving

It is amazing to see this place like this today. When our sections was at its heights there were easily over 1000 active members each month, everything has fallen to pieces and it would be difficult to pinpoint what acted as the catalyst. The fact that I have made one post this month and am at 99% activity is indication enough that this place is completely dead.

Once you get your beta key the large majority of the Beta (30 gigabytes worth) should start downloading an the 18th, then the final few parts will download when the Beta starts on the weekend.

I think I have thought of a better transition for us over the Steam forums/discussions I suggested which I admit is quite limited. We can set up a clan forum for WN on GameReplays.org which we all know is probably one of the best sites we could move our group to considering it has been a big supporter of the Dawn of War Series.

If everyone is happy with this then please post your username on GameReplays here so I can get a clan setup.

It's a different game, that's for sure. Relic have definitely built a new style of RTS which is really challenging to master but definitely a load of fun. I'm not much of a campaign player but of the missions I have played so far they are good, story line ain't no Dan Abnett but it's alright.

The majority of negative reviews you would see on the Steam store are mainly people whining they didn't get either DoW1 HD edition of DoW2 HD edition. Not sure why anyone thought it would be an exact copy of either of those games with the third release.

I guess I need to read about it. Sounds like this version is completely different from the first 2. I preferred DoW1 over 2, I liked having big armies.

It's 50% off here Al: https://www.greenmangaming.com/games...wn-of-war-iii/

Meant to be a patch coming out EOM, I hope it's good because this game is so unbalanced it's not funny atm. I don't even bother playing 1v1 atm because all I do is vs the same strats every game.

I have so little time that I didn't even finish the campaign yet. While I find the game visually pleasing, I have never felt less involved in the story.

But I have to say, gameplay is really solid.

Got to agree with you on the story. Pissed off that it swaps between the races. I enjoyed the first mission well enough, got to the second, saw i had to play orks, and went 'YEAH NAH MATE', straight back to LoL.

I'll play with you guys though!
