    They need new gameplay footage already. Why do games in progress always have to say "Hey you want to know how our game plays? Well FUCK YOU! you have to wait a year or a half."

    I remember seeing some very early screens of WAR in Alpha, there were 20 identical dwarves fighting 20 identical orks and they all looked about on part with EverQuest graphics, circa 1999.

    It did not paint a pretty picture.

    i think you are all forgetting about tzeentch, tzeench is the best god to work for because he is all knowing and doesn't do terrible terrible things to you, other then make you go insane from too much knowledge.

    I wouldn't say that. I vaguely remember a short story where this powerful champion of Tzeentch is going to meet with another champion who wasn't a warrior and yet was challenging him for control of his warband, and then a brick falls on his head.

    He wakes up as a homeless man who had delusions of being a champion of the chaos gods.

    Tzeentch can fuck with you a lot if you fail him.

    I read this story also. I think the guy was actually a scrub cultist who failed at some menial thing and ended up getting turned into a chaos spawn at the end.

    Chaos warrior: 'wtf?'

    This is because Tzneetch is actually a god that is stuck in a state of paradox by his own inherent nature and portfolio.


    The Grey Knights series explains it best, though it's still a bit of a mindfuck.


    Long story short (Very, very long story, in fact.), Tzneetch is everything, and nothing, because if he was something, he'd be nothing, as he'd be violating his own state of being.

    Because he is the god of change, he cannot be anything at all that is definitive. This means that he has no true "plan", nor does he really know everything. Except when he does know everything.

    He just kind of wings it and hits every possible alternative possible he can in order to not ever be in a definitive state of being. Depending on how materium entities act, one of those alternatives comes true. Sometimes. Unless he chooses to do nothing. Then who knows what goes down.


    Obviously, this is very bad for anyone that worships him. Aside from the fact that sometimes people interpret change as "oh god why is my forehead sprouting tentacles", which is not a good thing in a universe where belief in something can make it true, you literally cannot comprehend his true nature, or motives, because he essentially has no motives that are discernible.

    Or to put it in mind-fuckery terms. He has no motives while having motives that do not contain any understandable motives in of themselves.

    He is both states of being, and neither of them. Because if he wasn't, then he wouldn't represent change. Without being mind-blowingly crazy, you cannot even begin to understand just what it is Tzneetch wants you to do at any one time. And even then, if he wants something, he also doesn't want you to do it too. So it's not like you're able to get brownie points with him like you would with Khorne, Nurgle, or Slaanesh. Most of his champions are supposed to be picked by the luck of the draw.

    It also means that his true worshipers (IE Champions.) cannot ever be something permanently. In other words, true power is fleeting for a champion. One day they may be lord of a dozen worlds. The next, they may be scrounging in the streets of those worlds. Because of they were anything of permanence, they'd be violating Tzneetchs main law of conduct.



    And that, ladies and gents, is why Slaanesh is awesome. At least you know what you're getting in the bargain when you sign up with him.

    the one that involves Brother Tankred...

    So some information about this has just popped up on Warseer.
    Sorry I've not be present around here for long but I've been settling into my new role as Community Manager for a rather larger video game retailer. I was sent down to GDC Online this week (so I got sent back to Austin after just leaving!) and managed to get a tiny bit of info from the very tight-lipped folks at THQ.
    Dark Millennium Online has a "pencilled-in" ship date of Spring 2012.
    Same art style as Space Marine.
    PC AND Console-based. (!!!) The Rep said it would be Cross Platform, but couldn't be 100%. I don't see why it wouldn't be (and it would hurt it if not.)
    Developed by Vigil (Darksiders) and published by THQ. Relic also has a hand in the game in many places.
    "No comment" on "Good vs Evil" lineup. A Relic employee said he was "pleased" with how the factions had been grouped, but wouldn't go further.

    Someone cleanse this man. Clearly he is tainted, and must be PURGED.


    In other news, I wonder if they're going to do a three-way faction system.

    Maybe something like

    Imperium:
    Space Marines
    Imperial Guard
    Inquisition


    Asshole Manipulators (And "manipulatees"):
    Eldar
    Orks
    Inquisition


    Chaos:
    Champions of Chaos
    Demons of Chaos
    Inquisition (Because really, there's just as many corrupt Inquisitors as there are "good" ones.)


    That's what it usually comes down to in Dawn of War.


    I assume if they're letting female players play the Space Marine analogue, then that Adeptus Sororitas will be in too, since I heard that mentioned about a year ago. No clue how that'll factor into their faction system, though, whatever it is.

    You can't put an Imperial organization in the same faction as Orcs.

    You can't do it.

    But someone needs to find out how they make their tech work!!

    Also even though there are three factions, I think some of the factions should be able to fight each other to an extent. IE: Inq (within the Imperium) should be able to attack IG or SM under specific circumstances and such.

    So it is said, so it shall be.

    It will happen. It has happened. It's happening right now.

    The Inquisition uses the Orks as cannon fodder and distractions all the time. Of course, it always bites them in the ass in the end. But that doesn't stop some Ordos Xenos/Malleus Inquisitor for thinking that this time, this time, they'll come out on top.

    And then the Orks steal their pointy hats.


    I like how he made an Inquisitor faint in terror. Then again, only an Ork freebooter would be crazy enough to co-opt a Space Hulk into being their new headquarters. So perhaps it's a bit justified in her case.

    Holy necro post batman. I'd almost forgotten I made this thread ages ago.

    Good to see the 40K MMO still trucking along, and apparently to a 2012 release no less! I still worry about it's future prospects, considering it's dangerous proximity to SW:TOR and GW2 in the grand scheme of MMO releases.

    Just been to the site and all they got is a E3 2011 teaser trailer. Not going to hold my breath on the release date, or the release year.

    I'll tell you the factions

    Lawful Evil:
    Space Marines
    Imperial Guard (Human Imperium together
    Adeptus Sororitas
    Inquistion

    Chaotic Evil (heh)
    Chaos Space Marines
    Heretics (Human Chaos together)
    Chaos IG
    Dark Eldar (Seperate Dark Eldar and human Chaos, maybe a temporary alliance.)

    Chaotic Neutral:
    Orks
    (Seperate these three, not in same factions)
    Tyranids (I mean come on! Orks and Tyranids aren't evil, they were made that way. Damn Old Ones)
    Necrons (Hmm, might be better in Chaotic Evil)

    Lawful Neutral (Both are debatable)
    Tau (Communists, but they do give you a hand in alliance before shooting you with their gun in the hand behind their back)
    Eldar (Perhaps the races could form a temporary alliance)

    Or, you know, like how it is in the universe, a big free for all.
