What races would yall like to see in Dark Millenium? I'm honestly looking forward to just bein a Space Marine. But I hope they put some Tau in. Looks like from the trailer there will be orks, chaos space marines, imperial guard and corrupted. Hopefully there will be others.

I would love to see all the races in the game. However, realistically it will probably be just Loyalists and Chaos to begin with. Eventually Orks, Eldar and Tau might make it in. Tyranids and Necrons not likely except as NPC mobs. And yes I didn't mention Imperial Guard, because I feel like they would be part of both the Loyalist and Chaos sides. It's still humans.

necrons should now with the update to them because they have in their story lines now awakened properly so now they have a command system, named leaders and now make conversation with everyone even with other named lords, this gives them the opportunity to give you a necron character in dark millennium because your character can wear items get weapons that perhaps belonged to great necron lords from their past because every item has a name in these type of games, and you can start of with a warrior go up to either an immortal or flayed one then flayed one goes to pariah to lych guard while immortal goes to deathmark to perhaps destroyer then each path can go to a lord lych guard to lord with warscythe staying with melee theme and destroyer to destroyer lord with staff of light keeping with ranged theme but at this stage you could change the weapons around. this is just an idea of what they can do and might do

The rumors I have heard is that it's going to start out Imperium and Eldar against Chaos and Orks.

This is correct according to previous leaks and press releases though I have no link to prove it

I am pleased to hear they will have some diversity in the races. The one thing I find amusing with the races though is Dark Millennium will be lacking one thing that the rest of MMOs have: different genders.

This however also begs the question of how they are going to do "classes." Going to have Guardsman, Space Marine, Tech Priest and Psyker? That would be paralleled to Cultist, Chaos Marine, [Insert Here] and Sorcerer? Then Orks would get Boy, Nob, Mad Dok and Weird Boy? Eldar with Guardian, Fire Dragon/Dire Avenger, Farseer and Warlock?

That's my best guesses at this point, and why a class based system is added pause for anticipation of other races, because you would need a (for purposes of my guesses) DPS, Tank, Buffer/Debuffer and Support for each of the races, which I feel is harder for some of them. Like if you put Tau in Fire Warrior, Kroot, [Pathfinder?] and Ethereal? Meh. Necrons; Warrior, Immortal, Lord? I feel like that's down playing the Lord. And Tyranids... yeah that just doesn't work I feel.

they can down play the lord know though because of the overlors and then characters like imotekh the stormlord are abovethe overlords. these days necrons would not be such a bad idea

They cannot add Tyranids and Necrons as playable races because of the balance issues. Tyranids move and kill too fast for most people to react to and Necrons will just fuck you up.

However they could add them as rogue elements. Forces that will attack both sides controlled by AI

Like if one team is beating the other by a factor of 5, ie 200:1000 then the winning team suddenly has to deal with Necrons in their area as well

I agree. In my estimation Tyranids (though awesome) should never be playable in the MMO. They should be the big scary bad guy that everyone can mutually agree to hate. Like the Sylithids or whatever they were called in World of Warcraft. Make them be events that happen "Oh it's May. Hive Fleet Own-your-face has entered the sector" . And obviously things like Necrons and Tyranids will be featured in the instances as bad guys.

I am looking forward to this game, though I do not know if I will actually buy it mainly due to it being an MMO. I have a family, on my last semester for my Bachelors Degree, spend enough time painting miniatures, try to find time for friends, as well as trying to find time to play BF3, Skyrim, etc. I cannot devote the amount of time required to these kinds of games in order to have fun or keep up with the rest who will devote 6+ hours a day.

I guess I will wait and see how the game turns out in the end. Graphics wise, I think it looks horrible, but no different than most MMO's I guess. I am someone who loves gorgeous visuals and after playing BF3 and Skyrim, the bar is set pretty high when it comes to giving me that "wow" factor. The only reason I would consider it after all that being said is its 40k. I love the 40k universe so it will be interesting to see how true they stay to all the fluff.

Seeing titans in the preview was unexpected and I am curious to learn more about that. Again, this could be one of those areas where only the die hard players are able to reap the benefits or it may be a unique character class which has access to titans but can't really do much else. Now the real question is... Do I stay faithful to the Imperium or join the forces of Chaos! Decisions, decisions...
We got tactical smart missiles, phase-plasma pulse rifles, RPGs, we got sonic electronic ball breakers! We got nukes, we got knives, sharp sticks...

I know that in an interview i read quite a long time ago they said that all the races would be represented. Now, if that means playable or not I do not know. The idea of necrons and tyranids being AI controlled critters for dungeons sounds like a great idea, but I know ppl who play those races would be upset. I am also curious about the "classes." Surely they wont give you a bolter and power armor, smack you on the ass and tell you "go get 'em hero!" Half the fun of MMOs is working your way to the top, but I know, I know my friends....the grind sucks! It would be nice if you did quests for your armor or something like that. Just my opinion.
