I played against a TS 40 Orc player and he used mechboy and stickybombs to a devestating effect. He harassed my squads with his teleport to slow my capping and got map control had two walkers before I could even get enough power to teach to teir 2. Pretty impressive.
Ork are a bit tougher because they don't have early suppression or ways to get around early suppression (other than flanking). If you can micro you units around suppression and into melee you are a winner but its tough to do against decent opponents.
Warboss is probably the toughest unit in the game (may be a FC with Iron halo not sure though) so by level 10 he has over 2000 HP compared to other heroes that is a lot of fire he can absorb.
Orks' tier 2 is somewhat lacking. The lootas can't hold suppression down adequately and there aren't enough upgrades to keep shoota and slugga boyz viable. I wish they gave some sort of health upgrades to keep them competitive.
Orks were my favorite race (apart from SM) in Dawn of War. So I am hoping to keep trying to get better with them :)
I find a killa-can combined with tank-bustas and slugga boys good enough to get you through T2 into T3.
The hungry, ignorant man immediately grasps that he is handed a fish, but is bewildered when handed a net. The man who shivers in the cold thinks happily of the man who invites him to sit by his fire, and somewhat poorly of the man who loans him an axe, flint and steel.
Ork humour is one of the main reasons I love the faction. Their quotes in Dawn of War and DoW 2 are priceless.
''We got even bigger nob now?!'' ''...not my fault!''
You can't count the amusement when you get in middle of fast backed action and then stuff like that comes up. This even makes up the fact that marines don't scream ''For the emperor!'' every half second.
