nonlinear for the all of the games were pretty nonlinear. since their were some plot twists. and most of the levels were designed for attacks at any angle.
dc was a capen for a knoce ss is a capen for 3-6 pleants
It's going to be non-linear, it's already well known.
I, for one, would prerer a combination of linear and non-linear, like Empire at War...
non linear but this time there is a whole solar system in it thats the big difference with dc
im sorry but these polss are getting ridiculously rubbish, if you read anythin about ss youll know its a non liniar
Non-linear, I guess... i haven't done any real "look into" or research about soulstrom
I know its non-linear but i wished it was linear in a way with commander wargear carrying over : / . But oh well.
its going to be non linear. Which is about as good as having 2 skirmish mode buttons. I wish it had a linear story mode. I had way more fun with dow and wa than dark crusade. I only play dc for the races.
#3 what language is that
i already knew it was non-linear
Linear/Non-Linear like Empire At wars just the way Droids Rule said (droids does not rule) so that you can choose what planet you conquer but there would be "main" target for each "mission". Like for Imps and Spaceys, Inquisition could give orders "Capture/Purge this planet" and there would be more accessible planets nearby it. But Orks couldnt have such of thing, just jumping planet to planet style
wat is NonLinear mean?
wat is Linear mean????????????
I like the idea of it being linear but it is non-linear, pretty well known fact. But the combination thing is a really good idea, hope they do it. Also #11, linear means that story mode is a bunch of pre-determined missions and maps etc. Like in the original DoW where as non-linear is like DoW DC, with the meta map and all that
thank claening is up
It is already official confirmed that it will be a NonLinear meta-map ,just like DC but bigger
non linear is good, but if i want to play tens of skirmishes with a few lightly scripted missions ill go play skirmish.....
i wish it was both lol
I agree, my poll idea was sheer genius, but no! Ignore the common man and his sheer genius poll ideas! ATTICA!
it has already been confirmed it is non-linear, however thre is supposed to be multiple planets, and some linear aspect, they havent said what. im not worried, long as i can fly im happy.
(anyone not getting that they will have ariel units in soulstorm)
its non linear, with 3 diff planets and moons and many territories to attack its deffinatly non linear (whos voting for linear? are you people serious?)
I hope they put in some Space battles like Starwars empire at war did like you battle for the space around the planet then just fight for the land i love space battles..
by linear you mean no matter what follows a particular story and string of levels BUT still being able to choose the race, or like WA playing alon as all of the main ones and using neanderthal-like buttons at only the end of the campaign to choose who lives and who dies
NO! I have read an actual ... thing ( I think its on the back of soulstorms cover) that says it has a =nother meta map like DC
soz if I have repeated words of some on above!!! ( NO NOT YOU GOD! YOU DONT EXIST ANYWAY!)
Soulstorm is going to be non-linear campaign, with some linear aspects chucked in on top of that (not literally "chucked" in)
And i like the idea that 10 had, I think thats a great idea...
and it will suck every ounce as much as DC's campaign did for it. plus an ounce or two more we already know it will suck.
DC's campaign was a disgrace. No real story beyond the fortress missions. No acting beyond the voices (no cut scenes like in DoW or the few in WA.) A horrid War Gear system that required the player to dawdle to get all the gear (required way to many kills and defences.) Worst of the lot and most unforgivable was NO COVER AT ALL! Not one single blasted map beyond the fortresses had ANY COVER! That ment the multilplayer maps added had no cover either. Cover was one of the main points of DoW. Cover, Melee Combat , and Squad based units (in that order) where what set DoW apart from RTS's before it. It is an integral part of TT that they just through out of the campaign.
SoulStorm will suck major A$$ compared to Vanilla DoW. The trend is there. DoW was brilliant. WA was an unfinnished rushed product and DC was just bad beyond a two flashy and completely unblanced races. Lets not forget how they screwed up the infultration system. There are no mods out that could possibly get me to buy SoulStorm before its in a bargin bin for $10 or less. DC was bought by me with the thought "the modders will fix it." That says something about the quality of their products when I have to think a 3rd party will fix their product.
ooh ooh like said above you should have like a fleet, and then we move around with it and you fleets fight, and you should have like 1000 ( noral troops) honour guard filling your fleet, then you choose how many men get drop poded down/teleported and choose how many will be left behind so encase you fleet leaves and the planet comes under attack, you will still have troops stationed there. and when ever one of your ships get destroyed you can choose to buy/ go back to fortress monastary or where ever and get more troops at the expence of some global requisition. that would be awesome!!!111!
and at the start you can customize the appearance of ur commander and give him different WARGEAR at the expence of requisition again. (or you could just have a thing b4 campaign where you change his look but nothis stats without having to pay). and when you take full ( capture all meta map provinces) planets you should have like global defence turrets for extra protection, AND there should be ( because each planet is a meta map) a bunker ( like bunker 149) where no matter what when they land they have to attack it to destroy the global defence turrets and if they loose they are driven of the planet, or the bunker could just be your strong hold...
by far i think Dow had a better campaign than WA and DC even though my favorite race is the Imperial Guard. WA was all about how many troops you had, and getting to the objective in a certain amount of time. DC was weird, because you had to conquer all these different territories, and was to tempting to attack the enemy stronghold too early. In DoW you had all the time in the world, and it had a mysterious felling to it, especially when facing the eldar.
Thats why Linear is better.
Same Dark Crusade shit in a new package.
it is said tha SS will have non linear style campaign unfortunatly...i think it was stated in official anouncement of SS...
I personally dont like linear because you play once and your done. Non-linear i can play it multiple times and have it different. And i guess im small minded because dark crusade's story line kept me occupied. It may not be amazing but it was enough. for me at least.
um ya i thought this was a poll not a complaint center. ok i see where your comin from though (playing all the games my self), i felt that DC was to free form no real story at all kinda like playing risk but agenst comps, i hated the comander in Dc he was to dull no story at all, most of the time a just sent him to die, i liked how in dow they actualy made the hero important (less so in WA) with his own personality, while most of DC comanders are boring robots who dont matter at all. another thing about Dc i dont like is that there is (almost )no plot AT ALL plz fix that relic . i wunt to find out wut hapind to gabrel and the demon . DC rilly lacked some things that made DOW important though yes i will buy the next one cus air units man thats to good to refuse
Need an option for "Gay" on that poll.
I reckon it can be non linear and when you've done something special you can follow it further and then eventually go back to the meta map.
This is one of the STUPIDEST poll questions I've ever read. It's even more retarded than than that question about what's the best transport vehicle. I can think of better poll questions than this CRAP.
Then don't comment if you don't like the poll.
I think it HAS already been announced as a non linear campaign, I prefer it to be linear but there you go.
Well, since Killa won't post my idea for a poll, and since nobody likes this one.
Here's my poll!
Which Chaos god would YOU serve?
Just say which one and I'll add the votes up. oh and, I vote Slaneesh!
@ # 36 . Why isnt there a 'none' option, if youre an imperialist like myself.
Um, ok, F. None
F none cause IG
What, is everyone gonna be an IG lover? Psh!!!
So far it stands
FOR THE EMPEROR I VOTE "F. None"
what!?...Slaneesh if you know whats good for you, even though pleasures become nothing to you. He He...you know what the emperors children get when they summon deamonettes, right?
How has this moved on to a completely separate poll
However, I do think a better poll would be 'Does anyone appreciate the fact there is no longer a story to the games?' (as its already announced that its non-linear) and 'Do relic realise they've left a clinghanger or have they forgotten?'
they already announced that it will be non linear......why is this even a vote?!?!?!?!
they are going to make the campeign a more extended version of DC's by making 3 planets and a moon insted of just one planet.
I'll vote for F. None. Anything involved with Chaos is just sickening. No way in the world I'd ever worship any of those Chaos gods.
"you know what the emperors children get when they summon deamonettes, right?" -conti
Bored? I mean they have seen the things for thousands of years. I would think they would be sick and tired of seeing them. The "looking for new sensations" part of slaneesh would be lacking a bit in that department by now.
'Does anyone appreciate the fact there is no longer a story to the games?' -chris8016
yes, quite a few
'Do relic realise they've left a clinghanger or have they forgotten?' -chris8016
Either way it doesn't matter. They either have no memory (and don't bother looking at their products) or they willfully ignore it. Both don't speak to highly for them. I for one lean towards the "ignore" idea. The tend to ignore fixing any actual mistakes on their part. I guess it would be admiting them in their mind or something. Examples: any of the "no brainer fixes" that has been on the relic forums for half a year for dc. stuff that is obviously a mistake (typos in code and whatnot) Other things like the land raider in the original DoW (did almost no damage to vehicals) wasn't fixed until WA when they procedded to mess up the FC by 'upgradeing' his DaemonHammer into a powersword thus killing most his T3 purpose (killing monsters.) not to mention taking away the librarians staff for a powersword. Randomness and not fixing it after FTL.
'um ya i thought this was a poll not a complaint center' -Lt Apollo
an easy mistake. you need only look at the common contents of several polls to see your error. Remember, just because something is named "poll" or "Free" doesn't mean it is. also, you should note that this is not a proper 'poll' it is a factual question. This only guages if people know its going to be non-linear or not. a "poll' would be (already had one like this to) "would you like DoW's next expansion to have a non-linear or linear campain?" As such that it had no "poll" quality to it. I decided to express my opinion on the campaign differances and qualitys so far. which is not off topic.
I bet they get orgasms, actually, they probably orgasm 24/7
Oh and, our poll stands as
B.Slaneesh-2( WOooo Conti! Represent!)
I will continue this poll as long as I feel the other polls are failing. If Killa gets a good one, I'll stop it for that poll and continue to the next, I wish to see which god will get at least fifty supporters first. So it's non stop. Thank you all for participating in it. (:
Put me down for G. All (including none) Because Chaos defys reason and I change my alliegnce with the wind. one day I'll be a total Imperial Zealot. Next moment Blood for the Blood God! Skulls for the Skull Throne! and so on.
sorry ment BeanTheKing. so much for trying to remember names and not copying and pasteing.
Rofl, good job, no worries though, and I guess I can add G.
So now it's
theys polls r lame i dont even no y im still read em
p.s does anyone no if air unistes are like abilties or will they have dog fights and shoot each other down and will you have AA guns i think they should have just made a DOw 2 wit the COH engine would make it alot better
oh and out me down for TZeech go rhousand sons!!
Alright! Thanks for actually choosing one this time. So now it's
So, IG lovers still in the lead eh? Well, 1000th son will probably go Tzeentch, but I'm gonna wait to ask him to be sure.
I said this the last time this was asked, I should be allied with Tzeentch, but superhuman reflexes and blade skill is too good to pass up. Put me down for Slaanesh.
Sign me up with Khorne, blood, mass carnage, and corpses piled high.
KILL! MAIM! BURN!
Lol, yeah yeah I forgot eh? Anyways, our poll now stands as
Btw, I was thinking, since some people don't know all that much fluff about Chaos gods, I was gonna ask you 1000th son, if you would type a sentence or two describing them and stuff, if not then someone who thinks they know enough fluff.
I'm tired, so I'm just going to quote stuff from lexicanum.
Khorne is the Chaos god of anger, violence and hate. He is the mightiest of the four Chaos Gods. Every act of violence gives Khorne power, whether committed by his followers or by enemies. Slaanesh incurs most of Khorne's hatred; Tzeentch is hated, as the act of using psychic powers to kill is abhorrent to Khorne. Khorne's followers are without exception warriors. His followers build no temples but rather worship him on the battlefield. To devote time to building temples rather than battle would more likely incur Khorne's wrath than please him. Khorne is said to have inherited a martial nobility and honor, and considers the weak and helpless to be unworthy of his wrath.
Nurgle is the Great Lord of Decay, representing physical corruption and morbidity. Of the Four Chaos gods he is said to be the most involved with the plight of mortals. Many of those afflicted by his contagions usually turn to him in order to escape their suffering. The physical likeness of Nurgle is described as gigantic and bloated with corruption, with foul-coloured leathery and necrotic skin.
Nurgle's main enemy is Tzeentch, the Lord of Change, because, where Tzeentch seeks to build, plot and scheme, Nurgle seeks only to destroy and break down.
Nurgle embodies the will of mankind to struggle on no matter what opposes them. Suffering, death etc: the human race pushes these things from their minds and tries to forget them by living in the moment. For this reason he, his daemons and followers usually demonstrate a disturbing joviality and joy at the pestilence that he inflicts, seeing the plagues as gifts and the cries of their victims as gratitude rather than agony. This is demonstrated on the Daemon World of Bubonicus, where an endless chain of crazed revellers circle the planet's equator in a never ending dance. He is often referred to as Grandfather Nurgle, Father Nurgle or Papa Nurgle by his followers because of this paternal nature.
Tzeentch is a god of Chaos who represents the vitality and volatility of change. Tzeentch is closely associated with sorcery and magic, as well as dynamic mutation, and grand, convoluted scheming. It is said that Tzeentch knows the fate of everything, and all events transpire according to some great plan beyond mortal reckoning. The mortal champions of Tzeentch are especially dangerous, as they wield awesome sorcerous power on top of their considerable physical prowess.
Slaanesh is the Chaos god of lust, excess, pleasure, perfection and hedonism. Slaanesh typically appears in a form which is female on the right side and male on the left with two sets of horns rising from its flowing golden hair. It can however assume any form; male, female, hermaphrodite or asexual, but prefers male bodies. Its sacred number is six. It is also known by a multitude of titles such as the Prince of Chaos, Prince of Excess, Prince of Pleasure and Lord of Dark Delights; to the Eldar, who do not name the god, she is referred to only by the Lovecraftian titles of She Who Thirsts, She Who Is Not Named, The Great Enemy, The Great Serpent, etc. Slaanesh has a neutral attitude to many of the gods of Chaos, and is generally too caught up in his own pleasures to be interested in alliances and co-operation. Particular enemies are the followers of Khorne, whose belief in pain and death is completely opposed to Slaanesh's principle of a life of unrestricted pleasure. Followers of Nurgle and Tzeentch are subject to Slaanesh's usual neutral attitude.
Ha, Lexicanum ftw, so, now that you know more, vote for your favorite! Cough Slaneesh Cough
ok, whats not to love about slaaneesh. You get huge guns that fire noise, out of all things, and you get everything that every guy in the right mind would want.
slaneesh, wrong spelling, sorry.
comon vote for TZeech u can never die u cant feel pain and ur like a spirt in armour or the worls most powerful psyker
other than Eldar of course
But I thought the Emperor was the best spyker?
He is. He's above the alpha-plus ranking, and alpha-plus Psykers can snap titans in two by pointing at them.
Read 'Eisenhorn' for info, it gives good detail about Psykers and their varying abilities and ranks. There's the 'Ravenor' series too, but it's not as detailed.
Ever notice how that's so not donut like? It doesn't even look like a donut!
wow, that was really random.
lol there like out of date donuts my mr smiles as eat to much cyber donuts and is very sick
how does everyone feel about the hero units? do u think they should have more health to make them die harder and should psyker powers used in the game do you think they should be incresed to do more damage?
"how does everyone feel about the hero units? do u think they should have more health to make them die harder and should psyker powers used in the game do you think they should be incresed to do more damage?" -dowfan
no. With the exception of the farseer. She is vastly underpowered for her cost and in comparison to other commander units. They need to work of fixing their blasted new races first. They need to go back to the freaking drawing board. Take the first 4 back to old DoW stats and balance the Guard, Tau, and Necrons to them. Then do the same with the SoB and Dark Eldar. They added the an unfinished guard race in winter assualt and moved the other races around to compensate. The guard where more unfinished than unbalanced. HWT's should have been there from the start for one. DC balance is so messed up right now its not even funny.
The fact of the matter is until they fix the bugs and fix the first 4's balance. They will never make any headway with balance in their series. The first 4 where about as balanced as you are gona get. You balance to a standard. Relic balanced their standard to their messed up, twice. I bet they are gona do it in SoulStorm to.

|cmon guys, NURGLE ALL THE WAY!!!! |
now, for 1, i want to see a new space marine chapter represented in DOW
2, i want to see more choices when you play as a team, like infantry-based Imp guard, or vehicle-based, giving you different weapons and troops, and different chaos gods to plegde to, so if you are the iron warriors, and you choose nurgle, you get nurgle daemons and plauge marines, but you get khorne-specific troops as khorne, giving the player more choices. same with tau, go auxillary or pledge to a certain caste (also, chaos undivided would not get ALL the troops, it would get stuff like terminators or something)
also, customizable troops, like give about 12 choices for heads as imperial guard, and let you choose 3 you want to see in your basic sqauds or anything. its not GW if you cant really customize your troops
i know my 1st idea has been somewhat touched on by some mods, but i want to see it really flushed out and equally distributed thru teams, and not made unfair

|I just have to say before I continue that #2 (of the post, not the comments to the post, if that makes sense) has to be the worst example of the written form of the English Language ever. There are amoeba on saturn that use English better than that ..thing.. does. |
I know I am not perfect but sheesh, at least you can get the gist. That poster is so inept at using his own language that he makes Lt. Apollo seem like Shakespeare himself.
I quite liked the non-linearness of DCs campaign. Really, it was the only way to make a campaign that any player could play. Trying to make 7 seperate campaigns (or even Order/Disorder type co-op campaigns) would be prohibitive for a company like Relic. With SS adding another two races on top of that, it becomes even harder.
However, I would have liked to see more storyline built in, perhaps some random events (warp gate opens for Chaos, so they get a free unit or two, or maybe even the Legion of the Damned appearing if you are losing particularly badly as the SM). Also while its meant to be all out war, perhaps a little diplomacy wouldn't go amiss. IG and SM fighting each other is a bit of an easy way out storyline wise. Maybe it would be wiser to combine them into one race and have a choice or something, IG or SM, when you start. Perhaps a split race mission (like in WA with the Eldar and the IG/Ultramarines trying to get through the shield) woul be the best way to represent them, although it makes balancing each map difficult.
As long as Soulstorm doesn't have the SoB, SM and IG all fighting one another, but rather fighting with each other or simply staying out of each others way (or maybe IG and SM vs SoB, as after DC the Blood Ravens/1st Kronus might be deemed heretics, and naturally they would believe they have been falsely accused and that the SoB have been deliberately misguided by some corrupt inquisitor)

|I vote D Tzeentch (ock and don't call me a hypocrite or nothing but don't ya think you're gone a little bit of the Question. I like linear but it's usally very restrictive, and i don't like being nailed down to one race, so i think i would prefare it to be no liner but a little bit (100's won't understand this) quicker. More ways of winning besides destroying Everything on the map. oh and as cool as space battles would be its just not practical without creating a new, and rather boring may i add, game |

|L-i-n-e-a-r = Linear (as in, follows one route) |
L-i-n-e-r = Liner (as in, something that lines something else, like a bin liner, or a type of large ocean going vessel)
I think, given the above definitions, that it is 100% certain that Soulstorm will have a "non-liner" campaign (Unless the Lusitania drops in for no particular reason!)

|they have the meta map campaign, but they should have a linear one. the first DOW took of in a book i think, tho a game would have been much better. the problem is that they keep making expansions, DOW has the graphics, so i don't mind that, and the game play is great. but in trying to add in the new races (which i think was more the point of Dc than anything else) it has to be one of the best RTS's ever but they need to get of their throne and make a proper DOW II. they seem to be bringing out the new races to appease the fans fo those races who want an RTS with them. but they need to get back to a story and the other things that made the first DOW such a great game for even people who knew nothing bout 40K to begin with. |

|firstly, i'd like a combo linear/nonlinear with some interesting plottwists on the side. I'd also like to see zero (ZERO) air units, as they would detract from the visceral front line carnage that made me like this game in the first place. |
Secondly, i will vote MALAL for the chaos gods. all u other gods hate and fear malal, for he is teh pwnzor (becuase malal is outcast god, and therefore hates the other gods more than anything else). nurgle would be a far second. Malal FTW.
LAstly, u people need to read the books, they already showed wat happened to farseer (i think its Taldeer) and Gabriel Angelos. read the fluffy books people. Oh and, funny enuff, the IG kill all the ultramarines who help them in WA because they were Thousand Sons in disguise. i wish they had shown that ;(

|i agree with 31. please refer to that for any other comments on this poll. DC wasnt bad. but it was repetitive. to think that we now have to conquer more than one planet like that is gonna make me sick. bring on the biocleasning battle cruisers. i say if a planet is comlpetely covered in aliens we should beable to kill everything on the planet then fight whatever gets to it first. |
or maybe the campaign will be gay after all who knows!
