“Dogs of War is a great looking online turn based strategy game that offers deep tactical gameplay”
Alpha Beta Gamer

“Dogs of War Online is a brilliantly strong tactical title, offering some great fun as you work your way through, getting victory from another by the skin of your teeth but overall chalking it down to sheer tactical finesse”
MMO Games

“if you’re the type of person who is interested in turn-based strategy games, particularly if you like the tabletop/pen and pencil types, you might want to give this one a shot”

This game is deader than disco, bad mechanics, no dev support it seems at this point, dead fourms on steam and game website. This game has no chance of making a comeback and is more over than disco I'd avoid trying to invest time/money

Pros
Typical fantasy Turn based tactics style game.
Doesnt try anything new but does some things different.
Its free.
Not pay2win.
Not very much depth.
Has potential.

Cons
Community is dying/near-death population wise.
Seems abandoned by the devs, as no relevant updates in a while.
Wording is sometimes unnecessarily confusing.
Engine doesnt feel intuitive.
Not very much depth.
Potentially dead.



TLDR; Play it if you like this type of game-Its Free

I played one game. My opponent was a total 4ssh0l3 who called me an idiot because I was playing the game for the first time. Lost because 4ssh0l3 opponent could buy better units than I could. Did not enjoy.

I have been a fan of Turn Based Strategy games all my life. This one does nothing that another game doesn't do better. It is boring in every way with no interesting units or strategies. I would recommend you purchase a game to play instead of playing this free game. Its not worth the time it takes to download and install.

I used to play Confrontation and this game is like a wish come true, it has a few things that need calibrating,
like stability of cameras and armies to choose from, but it brings me back to the glory days of Rackham and i am highly biased to say that i wish this game to become more popular and more features will come out of the Beta. if you like skirmish strategy this is your game!

To my mind, the game is just good - for sure better than other of its kind (not-so-free-to-play). I'm giving it strong 6/10 and hope for better matchmaking and maybe a singleplayer campaing. Here is a short summary of what I think:

+ easy to hop in - hard to master
+ nice graphic design
+ intuitive controls
+ "Confrontation" setting
+ you really CAN play it without paying and still have fun
+ you can paint your units :)

- grind hard or be ready to inject the game with dollars
- system of matchmaking is unbalanced (or there aren't many players?)
- up to now (2014) the collection of available units is not yet epic

Honestly when I started to play this I was a bit skeptical. The game has great mechanics. It has great units ec.t ect. To get down to it; it is missing something. I think that something is more single player. I recommend it for the single player. I enjoyed it for a whole 4 hours.

Best summerized as a game that will only be played because we currently dont really have a good lineup of f2p turn based stat. games. its badly balanced, on a garbage engine so bad you wouldn't even believe the number of glitches it has, with a very weak stategy component, and i mean weak. though in theory you have a variety of ways to play, due to the balance, most of the units are straight up worthless, and are better left unused rather then getting essentially a cannon folder unit.

Beyond this, the game is also rediclously complicated beyond my understanding (or it may very well be possible i understand it perfectly, yet the game is so buggy that i just can't even begin to understand whats intended and whats not) have a very very silly system of fighting. there are such awesome components to this game such as:

Calculations that lie about you having a 100% chance to hit, and you scoring a miss
Better chance of hitting your real target, by targeting the guy next to him, because reason
tons of skills saying they do one thing, and doing another
calculations telling you the wrong damage amount
sometimes not being able to activate the special warcall things (like defensive stance) doing your turn after movement, but then the other 50% of the time, you can.



within the last 7 or 8 months, the game has shown no signs of improvement, and actually seems to be doing quite the opposite, and getting progressively worse with each major update. i can't really recommend this game in anyway shape or form, but i can instead tell you this:

Go play fire emblem, even if its the gba version on an emulator, its still far superior to the experience you'll have here

Too fresh to be released.

If you read the game discussion topics, you will notice that most players aren't staying in the game for more than 10 days, and because of that the game has gone through changes. Still, the game should have waited more for public release.

I've experienced sudden fps decrease with a good system, the matchmaking system takes TOO long to find a game, which has only one mode, the troops balancing still needs a lot of work. Wolfen units(one of the 3 factions available) are either too OP or too nerfed. They are "heavier" than other units which can have a similar, if not better potential, but are "lighter" when considering troop management.

The balancing is still not good, the game has going through a lot of transformations, so I can't really say what the real face of the game is. The game still has potential to be good, but you should wait a lot more time to try this game out. Or if you do decide to play the game now, don't feel disappointed. Specially if you play with the Wolfen.

Was a Great game possibility they just needed more content: such as unit types and a PvE co-op vs AI. Too bad they are concentrating on another game that is really going no where. In a multiplayer community single player is the least selling idea. DEVs are no longer developing the game...need I say more?

The game was not bad but not good at the same time
Like dont get me wrong I like the Online game play of video games but I also enjoy the AI or pratice side to video games as well.
Some players might not like the competitive side to there game(s) and that is what this game is nothing but competitive.
Yes there is like 9 AI missions that you can do and all they are is Tutorial typical stuff
Once you get threw that its nothing but Online player vs player and yeah you can fight your friends in friendly games but you get nothing out of it so why bother yourself

Game needs a AI that you can fight to see if your Army is any good before walking into a 1vs1 and getting distoryed
Fun for a Day and then no more in my books.

The game is fairly good, but lots of work is to be done. For now there are 3 available factions and balancing changes from week to week.

nice move, reducing from 3 gamemodes to fricking 1 game modes. No offense, other than the fact that you will get bored quickly with the gamemodes, I have no other problem. Play this if you like to play tactical game with 1 gamemodes. I really hope they return the previous gamemodes
