    Dawn of War Online

    August 13, 2016 by Armaxilump

    Dawn of War Online is a 3D MMORPG video game based on the  game series of the same name. When main of gameplays are not same thing, and is just a new one. Released in 2016/2017 for PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4.


    Space Marines Chapter - are foremost amongst the defenders of humanity, the greatest of the Emperor of Mankind's warriors. They are barely human at all, but superhuman; having been made superior in all respects to a normal man by a harsh regime of genetic modification, psycho-conditioning and rigorous training. Space Marines are untouched by plague or any natural disease and can suffer wounds that would kill a lesser being several times over, and live to fight again. Clad in ancient Power Armour and wielding the most potent weapons…

    This news is already a few days old and most people keeping an eye of things are probably up to date with the recent events, but I suppose a site like the Dawn of War Wiki should cover this as well.

    As you may know, THQ – the owner of Relic Entertainment, the developer of the Dawn of War series – filed for a "Chapter 11" bankruptcy in December, arising some concern for the future of Relic franchises such as Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War, Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine, Company of Heroes and of course Homeworld.

    In a rather positive turn of events, it was announced this week that Sega, a major video game publisher that recently acquired the license for The Creative Assembly (one of their studios, responsible for the Total War series of RTS games) to de…

    "Space Marine 2"

    December 3, 2012 by MA4585159

    Project name: “Space Marine 2”

    Note: No copyright infringement intended. All Warhammer 40.000 source material belongs to Relic and Games Workshop. However, if any of this is used in actuality, I want a free copy (not localised)!

    Alright, first, I have to say that this game is Battlefield 3 in Wh40k. Except that I don’t play BF3, hence you’re free to make suggestions. And nothing short of that game can handle Wh40k the way people want it – vehicles, aircraft and a lot of explosions. Add the destruction engine from Red Faction: Guerrilla, which would cause buildings to realistically collapse after being rammed by a tank, for extra fun.

    Second, some of the non-Imperial fluff has escaped my reach, hence I’ll initially stick to the Catholic Space Nazi…

    I have encountered an error message in campaign missions listed below. It says "Fatal Scar Error" and it causes the soundtrack to dissappear, objectives system to glitch, and the cinematic to get stuck. And the bug is persistent.

    • Winter Assault - Order, mission 1
    • Winter Assault - Order, final mission
    • Winter Assault - Disorder, cinematic before the first mission
    • Dark Crusade - Chaos Stronghold Assault (both Imperial Guard and Space Marines) - just after Eliphas shows off the Khorne altar

    Any tips?

    Tyranid Mod Page?

    August 27, 2012 by K-leb25

    A lot of people may disagree with me here, but I was thinking...

    Well, after playing the Tyranid Mod for Soulstorm (0.45), I was thinking that perhaps we could add a Soulstorm/Tyranids page. I mean, the mod is so big and complete enough. It just has some balance and art issues.

    Of course, we'd have to clearly state that the race is mod-only. I can just imagine having fun writing pages about the mod. If admins disagree with me here, that's totally fine! Its just a thought.

    Dawn of War II: ELITE is a third-party modification for Dawn of War II: Retribution that started out as an experimental balance mod for high-level players and branched into adding completely new abilities and units after support for Retribution was cut. As the retail game will not be patched anymore, ELITE seems to have become the definitive multiplayer version of Dawn of War II. The first proper tournament with a money prize for the winner is being hosted and streamed on September 8–9 by Good Games Live.

    ELITE makes a plethora of visual upgrades and balance changes; some stats and abilities have been tweaked, some entirely removed or reworked. Pathfinding and projectiles have been tweaked to reduce glitching, and there are general mechanic change…

    There's another Community Game-Night coming this Saturday (March 31), this time going for some The Last Stand instead of normal MP games. Promoter Mr Cursed says (Irish accent):

    Seeing as we've been doing normal multiplayer for the previous incarnations of CGN, we're going for a TLS themed setup! Basically, what I want to do/happen, is to have a contest to see who can get the highest score on TLS and the team that manages it at the end of the night will get a DLC prize!

    Show up at the L2P or CGN group chats (L2P is usually the more active one) to participate!

    The ESL (Electronic Sports League) is hosting a Dawn of War II: Retribution 1v1 cup for mid-skilled players on Sunday, 4th of March at 17.00 CET. We expect the event to get live streamed by one channel or another.

    The ESL offers on sunday 4th of march at 17.00 CET a 1vs1 midskilled cup. We hope to achieve balanced and exciting games for everyone. Due to the inaccurate elo rating we won´t set any elo limits. All players can sign up, but we as admins will remove the players we think are too strong for this cup. So please don´t sign up if you already know that you are too good.
    This can be seen as a test cup just to check if there are people that are interested in such cups. If yes we will host more in the future.
