This game was blasted by the fanbase, and with good reason. This expansion utterly KILLED competitive multiplayer and demolished what little balance the game had. Numerous factions LOST construction options in the change to WA from DoW - for example, Chaos lost any and all access to special/heavy weapons and all infantry upgrades. It would mark the beginning of a dark period in the game's history which would never really improve; Dark Crusade would come and try to make things suck less, but saw one patch which left the game in a competitively-broken state. It would then be succeeded by Soulstorm, which would balance the game well, but would launch with crippling bugs which Relic, the game's developer, would ignore for nearly a year, leaving the fanbase to suffer as the game languished and was left to rot.

Yeah, I'm pretty bitter about this.
