A quick note about this game and it's current status.
I had the pleasure of doing a few custom 3v3's with Codex and Pocktio yesterday. We had some very intense games in my opinion and got games almost immediately.
The player base seems to be between 1500-2000 in the evening(GMT), so if you feel the need to play this wonderful game it is still very much an option I'd say.
There's is now also a balance mod(Admin please delete if I'm out of line on this on), which can be found on the mod forum I'm pretty sure. This should balance the game some more and introduces new units as well.
So all in all, you can still indulge in the awesome WH40K universe from this platform and get great gaming from it.
