    Re: We have another DOW expansion coming.

    Hmm... they MUST add the Tyranids. If they don't, it'd be criminal.

    Space Marines
    Orks
    Chaos
    Imperial Guard
    Tau
    Necrons
    Eldar


    ...yeah, if they keep with the tone of the last expansion, then adding the Dark Eldar (along with the Tyranids, hopefully), it'd be a complete list.

    I don't think they will be doing that. Relic claims that the current engine can't handle what they want to do with the Tyranids.

    ...not really sure why they claim the engine can't handle it.

    The Tyranids are a bit of a horde race (you can bet Blizzard aped the Tyranids when they created the Zerg), so perhaps they want to add in truly epic amounts of units to represent that.

    I can certainly see where the nids base might be a problem. Do they even have a base? That would be odd. And then if you think about it, the nids are kind of a more extreme version of the orks, sorta kinda not really.

    Re: We have another DOW expansion coming.

    Well... they basically forcibly terraform a planet and all its life by harvesting "biomatter" and recycling it into new Tyranid lifeforms (read, they land and slaughter every living thing plant or animal and also consume all resources). Each enemy the Tyranid face, they basically take it's strongest characteristics and "add their biological and technological distinctiveness to their own".

    The Chaos Space Marines Alpha Legion calls themselves the "World Eaters", I believe. However, the Tyranids are the true "world eaters". Once they're done, nothing's left except a hunk of rock.

    Aliens just have that little jaw thing. Pansies. Tyranids will EAT YOUR PLANET and you'll LIKE IT.

    Tbh tyranids are the race i've wanted since DOW came out.

    Heck, they'd probably have more trouble trying to find ways to balance them somewhat without totally nerfing them than actually putting them in.

    It's Relic when was the last time they actually had good balance in a game that didn't have mirrored sides.

    Also the Tyranids compare well the Zerg compare to the Tyranids. The Tyranids are basically an alien race that goes around attacking planets and once they subdue all resistance (if there is any) they absorb all the biomass on the planet (even the atmosphere if I recall) and whatever species on the planet they consider useful they genetically modify to be more useful.
