@ All the DOW II Modders out there:
Please STOP mixing Tau Units with other Races! I am also a great fan of the tau and i miss them to. But there are only 2 ways to add them: You replace a FULL Race with the Tau. Including all Units, Banners, Icons and buildings. Or you add a new faction in the game.
Mixing them is clashing with the style and hurts every Warhammer 40.000 Fan. They would call it "heresy". So PLS (!!!) stop!

Yeah, i read somewhere that it actually loads slower the longer you play it, it also said that disabling physics and the soft particle enabler (i think its called that) fixes this,i turned them off and it loaded quicker for me.

The game is really good, but there are some balance issues and a lot of bugs which still hasn't been fixed, and since they stopped the updates with still a lot of unfinished big fixing I'm gonna give it a 7.

Great graphics but it didnt make the game interesting.Not so good as Dawn Of War 1.
No strategy, no base building only rushing and rushing with one squad.
