Default How balanced are the factions?

I was just wondering how balanced the factions are going to be, hopefully it wont be like WoW lately where they try and make every single race and class have exactly the same stats and abilities, following some daft notion of fairness . I prefer it when its more unbalanced, its always more fun playing as the underdog.

I hope it would be more strategic, each faction has its weaknesses and strengths.

Elves - defensive - strongest walls, strongest units, most automated economy, best archers
Men - balanced - best technology, best economy, most diversity
Orcs - offensive - highest population counts, weakest units but with some elites (ogre, berserker, shaman)

Of course they craft will attention, not like the orcs which just build or the humans which are not far better then the orcs. Now if/when the dwarves are added they will have the best defence, especially walls!

That makes you wonder, when/if the dragon faction is added, they'll have fewer population but the strongest units?

Yeah, but our concept for a dragon race doesn't include too many of the flying, fire-breathing dragons you may be picturing. These are the elite units. The majority of the dragon forces are ground and melee dragons and half-orc, half-dragon beasts called Drakes.

Default Unique races

As long as each race feels really different to play then the developers will always have the ability to increase the longevity of their game. having strong abilities tied to certain races and elaborate counters to these abilities while maintaining both players "chance to win" is very important. the greatest thing Starcraft II did was to make each of the three races feel unique and appropriate to the lore. take the zerg for example. they play so different from the other races, and they kick butt. This game needs that kind of difference.
