    Anyone playing the open beta of the new RTS from Relic?

    I downloaded it on Sunday and was pleasantly surprised, the game itself is quite fun and if you are a fan of the board games, it is surprisingly realistic.

    It has the same kind of feel as Homeworld, with a more macromanagement approach than other RTS.

    The fighting is the most beatiful I have seen in a RTS, dreadnoughts grab orks and spin them round, while flaming another group of them. Assault Terminators walk into close combat and rip apart elders. Bloodthirster deamons tower above Space marines and eat them whole. Massive Orc Squiggoths charge through legions of chaos marines trampling them.

    It really brings the board game to life. The only problem is the game matching experience which is extremely poor, I have always found the Gamespy experience to be pretty lame when compared to Battlenet.
