The game is flawed but I like it anyway.
I think the elite system has a lot of potential, and DoW3 can be the DoW game with the most 'legal' units without shitting too much on balance - because they can add doctrines and elites without too much influence on the rest, as you're always limited to 3 (well, 6 to be perfectly fair) doctrines and 3 elite units.
I know some people hate it but I love the rythm of this game too: fast and deadly, like I always imagined 40k to be.
Right now the problems of the game are (in my opinion):
- not a lot of content (factions have a lot of diversity which is cool and compensate for them being only 3 but 8 maps is simply not enough, campaign is rather short and there's almost no point in playing it again)
- the meta is already stale, with some units being spammed because they're the most efficient all-rounders. ASM are spammed, mostly because TSM are shit before upgrades AND they can be upgraded to powerswords really fast. This + low number of map = you always play the same games, despite the doctrines and elites which unfortunately don't change THAT much (mostly because everyone takes the most efficient cheese right now, unfortunately) (not taking an early-game elite is a death sentance)
- escalation and ressource systems work in weird ways, they're supposed to allow a player to make a comeback even if he lost hard in the first 10 minutes but right now it just doesn't work with even-level players, it only drags out the game
I think it has the potential to be the best 40k game ever. Shame it was trashed to the ground by retards crying 'lol MOBA' or 'TERMINATOR BACKFLIP REEEEEEE'
