Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War delivers a level of visual detail never before seen in an RTS. Hundreds of units clash on the battlefields of the dark future, unleashing massive destruction through a stunning battery of long-range weaponry before closing in for the finish. Incredible kill animations bring science fiction combat to life like never before, and the gritty future-gothic Warhammer 40,000 setting provides a striking tableau for the chaos and carnage of this grim, dark future, where there is only war!

Alliance between Tau Empire and Corporation

Hello again friends. Now i created trade function in Tau race. Its more interesting, i must say. But some people can say, its really hardcore. Tau gameplay was changed. Now you can call your auxillaries only if you build Trade Center. There you can find Kroots, Vespids, Demiurgs and Rogue Traders.

Trade Center is important building and costs a lot of money. So you must forget about thousand kroots in battlefield. Choose your units very wisely, not quickly. Trade Center can add to your army very expensive units.

Your Corporation Weapon Trader can use only one superskill and very expensive. Its Antiproton Cannon from space station. It costs a lot of money, but have own effect and can make horrible damage.

User Posted Image

Kroot Shapers can use Napalm Grenades. Its powerful weapon against infantry. Its can kill many enemy infantry units. But it costs a lot of money. So use it carefully.

If you want to use Antiproton Cannon, you must pay a lot of money. But you can use it against buildings and enemy units. Use it only if the enemy is more stronger then you.

User Posted Image

Demiurg heroes from Trade Center can call many kinds of Orbital strike. Its also very expensive and can make horrible damage to units and vehicles. Use it very wisely.

Don`t forget: if you want to use Trade function in Tau race, you must built Trade Center. Its very expensive but useful building. Don`t forget also to build Kayoun Centre, if you want to call Kroot units.

Good luck!

Hi guys, as we all know Sega owns Relic, it is not known the future of Dawn of War (3) saga, but DoW still is property of GW, thou I think DoW3 will be a future anticipated news? I think they need to listen to us what we think is best. There's other companies that listen to their fans.
In my opinion, if the works of DoW3 is underdevelop? It is best to release the game with 10 armies than the usual 3 or 4 armies or continue the DoW where it was left off.
P.S. Oh! for Dawn of War 2 they should finish the Tau army.

Dawn of War 3 is hopeless. SEGA released the last of Relic's games instantly just to get money. COH 2 and don't forget the other short game known as Space Hulk. I'm sure there are more... but unfinished quality, short period game length...

Look at these reviews and tell me Relic intended to release COH 2 with MUCH less maps, MUCH less content, and finally graphics improvement only 5% better than COH's. Also the Russian community hit hard.

Yeah... Sega be abandoning Relic's games just to make money and take in their ideas (obviously the entire copyright they own now) and use it for their own benefits.

Not to mention the coming MMORPG. I fear Dawn of War will go the way of Warcraft. RTS is becoming an endangered genre.

Are you kidding me? No, that's not what it's like at all! Relic planned on releasing the game at the same time, Sega had nothing to do with the release date or even the production of the game, especially since it was already complete (for the most part) when they were bought. Sega is not a tyrannical corporation.
As for Space Hulk, the game was not even affiliated with Sega, it was an indie game and was not even published by anyone near Sega.
Now, for the graphics. Company of Heroes 2 has a totally new engine (admittedly, mostly created for the game mechanics) had great improvements from the one used in Dawn of War 2. The engine, once again, had nothing to do with Sega, especially since it was built a dramatically long time before Sega even purchased the company. Company of Heroes 2 uses the Essence 3 Engine, which is one of the, if not, the number one engine for any RTS. I don't have the numbers of vertices rendered, but it is quite a good engine. The engine for Company of Heroes (Essence Engine 2) was re-tooled for Dawn of War 2, which had many improvements to the graphics from CoH. THEN they built an entire new engine for Company of Heroes 2 and made a significant change.

Now, for the Russian community. They got angry because the Russians were portrayed as "monsters" because Relic told the truth about their side of the war. The are filled with propaganda and feel that mother Russia is just in what it does and are proud in what it has done. They have been only told of the atrocities of the Germans, not the ones that they have committed. They were angry because the game was showing people truly how awful the Russians had behaved during the war. Stalin DID kill more people than Hitler, you know. It just goes to show, history is told by the victors.
As for Sega using Relic just to make money, I don't believe that is so. As you can see by what I have stated, we have not even see what a Relic-Sega game looks like. If you read about Sega obtaining Relic at the auction, you'll even see how delighted the publisher's workers were. They dreamed of working with such an RTS Sci-Fi giant.
I am excited to see what is to come! Also, Games Workshop gave the license to Sega so they can make Warhammer games. Relic is getting a larger budget than they ever have with THQ (although, I do miss our beloved THQ) and they get more resources, such as what Creative Assembly has developed. I have high expectations for their new games. Don't be scared of change, no matter what you do, it will happen. Instead, enjoy it and attempt to find things about change and stop being bitter.

Oh well, I knew that will end like that, I was hoping if Sega wants to continue DoW they should listen us! then going by their guts. Thanks for the tips.

Well that sucks. I saw something about "you lost your time to repent" a few days ago, but it appears I missed the show.
Is the image uploading restriction definitive? As in, no image will ever be uploaded here again?
Because personally I'd rather have epic in-game screenshots up there. Eventually :/

This page (DoW game) just need an own (local) motivated supervisor.
Community is growing day by day, and obviously, moddb stuff personal must handle enormous amount of issues, complains, etc.
And sometimes the solution is simple! Just limit the rights of community, because this is "proprietary" site after all, and nobody really cares your/my/his wishes.
Or, hire a motivated volunteer(s) (like you or moddlord1), but that looks as a bit harder.

Just my thoughts.

>>...it appears I missed the show.
Lucky man! ;)

Highest Rated (19 agree) 10/10

For 6 years now I have been playing Dawn of War. Modding it gave me that extra plus.

8/10 because it is a really good game. I am however ashamed that Relic stopped at Soulstorm.

10/10 because I always experienced something new in it.

10/10 100% warhammer

10/10 for Dawn of War I and Winter Assault campaign

7/10 for Dark Crusade and Soulstorm campaign

10/10 for your epic stories and hard work combined.

Lowest Rated (3 agree) 5/10

So much more could have been done, that was ignored during development.
Betas should of had more input.

Only saving grace is that there is a Modding community with which to complete the incomplete game... :(
