The title just about says it all.

Editor Zach Faber and I lost a frustratingly continuous string of matches during Relic’s Dawn of War III closed beta.

Zach is brand new to RTS games, but bravely accepted the challenge, learning quickly. Unfortunately, he got stuck with a terrible teammate—me. I have been ravenously consuming strategy games for years, but I found out very quickly that my experience counted for absolutely nothing as we were defeated repeatedly.

In a total of 15-20 matches, Zach and I came away with the win exactly twice. Thanks for being a good sport and sticking with it, Zach.

Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War III releases later this month on April 27. Stay tuned.
