Default Dawn of War 2 Nid players?

So i was wondering how many of you guys here play DoW2 online?
I started playing it and got my butt handed to me over and over again.

I thought it would be pretty cool to get a bunch of the nid players from the board and play team matches vs others.

Heck maybe tau online as a whole could set up a 'forum rivalry' or something for dow2. members from the eldar,orks,space marine n tyranid boards playing for braggin rights or something. Or just to get +karma in the winning team.

I love Dawn of War 2. I play Tyranids, Hive Tyrant to be exact, nigh-exclusively in ranked 1v1, but also have some 3v3 Farseer/Warlock experience and 1v1/3v3 Apothecary skillz. I've got like a 4/5 win/loss ratio, Trueskill 28. My gametag is: Droidsrule.

I play occasionally. I seem to figure out how to do okay vs the computer and then go online and get stomped. Coming from playing Starcraft and Supreme Commander this is a pretty different scenario. Anyway, I'd love to play some games and learn the intricacies of the units and abilities. My gamertag is Gada Mazaha.

I would also more than support a TO DoW2 tournament between the boards. Let's get some practice first so we can destroy them >

MY THOUGHTS EXACTLY!

heh looks like everyone uses their TO sn as their gamertag lol. Mine is obviously Akaiyou.

and i'm having the same problem as Gada. I can cruch the expert computer offline but i get online vs other players and get stomped badly (though lately not as bad)

we need to practice and build up some sort of 'how to equip you tyranids in dow2' database. Since i noticed that i do better using certain units against certain armies.

For example warriors are pretty good with barbed stranglers against orks/eldar/tyranids but not so great against space marines. Adrenal Glands works better when facing them.

Well to be fair, the AI in this game leaves a lot to be desired. I could beat Expert AI with very little prior knowledge of the game. It just spams Razorbacks. Multiplayer is a totally different beast. :P

Anyway, just throw me a friend invite and I'd be up for some 1v1 sparring and team games.

Yea the AI sucks pretty hard. In Beta I was all about the multplayer, did exceedingly well to. Now that I have it I just don't have any desire to play online. I played enough during beta to experience everything and I just don't feel that they added enough of a dynamic in the multiplayer game.

I had a big problem with a good eldar player, who insisted on microing his squads of Guardians with photon grenades to obliterate my warriors and gaunts. I can't chase him when he runs away, and the cooldown seems to be about 10 seconds :/
