    They're fun, but I don't want to go ogreboard with them.
    I love British humour so much :D

    Im ok with more units but I imagine this would lessen the impact of the Ogre Campaign Pack

    That is more than I was expecting actually quite pleased overall. I mean I've been dying for Ogres for awhile so good to see them.

    Now to go sob in the DoW aren't the preorder Corner for a bit and get more hyped for ogres.

    Means we will get them and CDs very quickly, plus they may start with a reasonable roster as DLC quality is getting higher and higher in general.

    That's awesome, I certainly was not expecting Mournfang Cavalry.

    That sounds great!

    This is looking more and more like a proper send off. All final judgements withheld for the moment but it's looking increasingly impressive.

    This is weird.. giving out 3 different Ogre units before we get the full faction. I feel a mild niggle about the future of Ogres..
  • MaedrethnirMaedrethnir Senior Member Registered Users Posts: 12,899
    That's more than I have expected. Huh. Positive surprises are the worst. They rob me of a chance to complain.

    Impressive. Way more than I (or anyone else, I think) imagined. Great job CA.

    How can one not? But then again the actual text does speak of their kingdom. One can only hope that the rationales of money and common sense would keep the OKs as a future race. Who knows though. They might simply be the preorder.

    Yeah I was thinking it would just be a unit of Ogres with maybe a variant, which would be cool but not that massive, but this is pretty damn significant!

  • 55JoNNo55JoNNo Registered Users Posts: 2,057
    Methinks Ogres are pre order and we are getting these lads now to make up for fact pre order only playable in game 3 this time around. Helps get WH2 players to pre order game 3.

    I know lots are worried but the models and art look amazing and I think if they are pre order CA will do them justice with a comprehensive roster.

    Bohemond for game 3 please!

  • DVersionDVersion Member Registered Users Posts: 221
    this is insane. i'm going insane. ogres as a free update to wh2? I mean it kind of takes away from the excitement of an entire faction but... hell what the hell? what is going on? nothing is predictable, all theories out the window.
  • Red_DoxRed_Dox Junior Member Registered Users Posts: 4,975
    Pistol Maneaters give me post traumatic stress.

    Well, more Ogres then expected. Don't know what to make of that, but I think the chances of Ogre Kingdoms being the Preorder increased suddenly. And after you have now flexed out a "mercenary" recruitment mechanic CA, it is time for the real DoW Regiments of Renown to pop up on the map ;)

    I mean i guess, ca have good reason, to do them now.

    I mean giving the mournfang away in wh2 for free a centerpiece units, seems like a big marketing move to get people intrested.

    Yeah i propaly just wait and see the pre order (who almost no doubt now) are the pre order.

    My hope is kinda, first ca tooked the critique for wh1 and lack luster dlc so to heart that they move it in wh3 too and second.

    Fair ca even self admit that norsca is lackluster so, i just hope the ogre really get done justice but as i say,

    A: when ca annouce maybe still a other race for pre order

    B: when they still annocue ogre, ive they do justice.
