they are trying to make a "massive" game aka total war, but it's shit because it compares directly to Starcraft2 and this game... can't win on any front, even graphics.
the game punish you hard for losing units because the cost is the same on the old DoW franchise, but their lifespan? like 1/4.
jump-jet inside few eldar ranged units with 2 assault marine squads: they get shredded by a third unit and the other 2 NOT forced to go melee... i'm speechless.
the game awards you by choosing a blob of the same unit + few other specialized units like a scout/ranger sniper or some mechanized units like predator or dread. (i think the landspeeder is only used for harrassing the enemy listening post... got shredded by few eldars units ). it feels like years of sturdy space marines came to an end.
and before you ask it, no, balance patch can't improve it because this game is rotten to the core like the mandatory giant-elite unit for every match, no bunkers/turrets besides the listening posts giving a little comical relieve for scout units.
at least they got right the drop pod mechanic: every tech tier ( 3 total) you get 1 drop pod slot that you can fill with any unit you can produce; it has a cooldown of 200ish seconds and units take a little longer to build for the drop pod.
