We all know that Orks in past games have been little more than fodder to fill up gameplay. Looking back at Space Marine, a game which I haven't played nearly as much as I'd like to, I noticed that Orks are simply fodder to make progressing though the missions somewhat interesting. I'm concerned that my lowly Shoota Boy will be no more effective than the boyz massacred by Titus and his Ultramarines. Not to mention all the countless pieces of story and lore where Orks are simply gunned down in droves like some lowly Tyranids Gaunts and Gants. I suspect it to be so for trial players with access only to a basic Ork, but what about the hardcore Orky players? Will it come to a point when all we see is a race to elite classes for Orks, since core classes won't be as tough as the Space Marines and Chaos SM or as zippy as the Eldar? I know they'll attempt to balance the game but what kind of advantage will the Orks get to balance their innate vulnerability? Space Marines are slow but have a lot of armor, Eldar are fast but have weaker armor, Orks... they're not particularly fast nor are they well armored. They're supposedly naturally tough and able to withstand bolter shots, but that hasn't been very evident. What do you boyz think?
