Im pretty sure that they will not release a new race before next year. So why should they announce anything right now?

Im expecting a new race release around march next year, maybe they will announce something around end of the year or early next year.

We're still before the time, post-release, where Relic even teased Chaos Rising (with regards to DoW II launch).

(email teasers to high-profile DoW community members, late September 2009. Game release, late Jan that same year. Eight month difference)

While there's nothing wrong with being concerned, playerbase arguments make less and less sense these days. TLS for DoW II got the Necron Lord five years after Retribution was released (and well before DoW III came anywhere near to the public eye). vDoW (and vDoW II / CR) were migrated to Steamworks in . . . late 2014, if I remember rightly.

These decisions are often made on completely different sets of reasoning that pure playercount. It's absolutely a factor I'd imagine, but one the business side focuses on a lot less than the community does. Understandable, though, it's the only real public dataset we can observe.

Usually it's like a year for an expansion to come out, so we're still a ways off from hearing anything aobut them.

Personally I'd like to see some new singleplayer or co-op content first. Last Stand 2 would be nice. Something to change up the pace a bit.

Last stand would split up the playerbase tho and the playerbase is almost non existing. Sure potentially it could also bring new players to regular mp but still i dont agree to add another mp game mode its just to much of a risk to split the playerbase.

The thing about The Last Stand is it always appealed to a different type of player. It didn't so much split the playerbase as there were two entirely separate playerbases. Starcraft 2 has a similar dichotomy with Co-Op content and regular multiplayer.

Yukiko and Jelly are left though I haven't seen them post anything. They're probably on standby until an expansion and there's more activity. Not confirming an expansion or anything. I have no idea what Relics plans are.

Likely no one. As sad as it is GR is pretty much as dead as DoW3.

To some extent it's a chicken and the egg scenario. Maybe if we were pumping out tons of solid content on GR it would draw in more of a community, but with such a small community to produce content for it's hard to stay motivated.

I've fallen off a bit on producing my video content but I do intend to start playing the game actively again and producing game casts with the next patch adding the new elites. I got busy starting a new job and had an awful schedule where the only time I had to play games was late at night when I couldn't find any decent matches in DoW3 at my rank. (Being near the top of the ladder was lonely I gotta say.)

I do love the game and will try and put out more game commentaries and other content and will continue posting that on the GR video section. But I gotta say the motivation to try and teach people the game is pretty much gone with how small the playerbase is now.

yeah, thanks for pumping content Dullahan, hope to see you next patch. ATM I am moving to a new place, I had crappy internet for the last 3 month and before that I was in australia. I considered streaming a bit when in my new apt. and things are sorted.. For the time being, Im also giving technical support @ community page to at least help some people to actually get into the game.

agree on low motivation, bbut I am sure dow3 will make it on the long run. Its a solid game, actually its pretty decent and IMO balance is really good. Hell, we all remember dow2 for the first 2 years...... such a mess. I must say I liked the stiff rock,paper, scissors mechanic a bit more (made it harder to balance, + heroes). Now things are more irrelevant (losing squads).
anyway, bbbeautiful game.

Maybe there are other ways to support the game?
Anyway, we need a newsposter for dow3 on GR. Seriously. it cant bbe that hard.

It isn't hard indeed. Why don't you sign up for it? You seem to be involved and GR + the game surely can use some help with posting the DoW3 news. Just shoot ToxicShock a message?

I'm willing to take over on News but it says I don't have permission to post in the subforum. I tried messaging Netput but it says the mailbox is full. If anyone can advise on how to proceed, I'd appreciate it.
