Dawn of War II: Elite is a multiplayer mod for Dawn of War II: Retribution. Originally envisioned by Caeltos (a competitive player with a wealth of experience spanning through vanilla to Retribution) as an experimental balance mod for high-level players, Elite evolved into making bolder changes as THQ cut the official support of DOW 2 in their dive toward bankruptcy. The addition of new abilities and units became commonplace, from Space Marine Sternguard Veterans, Eldar Fire Dragons, Chaos Raptors to the Ork Flash Gitz, finalising in the introduction of an entirely new faction - the Grey Knights, based on Bloodravage’s Destroyer 40k mod – all designed from a competitive PvP angle. Coupled with continuous development and an active community dedicated to casts, coverage and regular events, the Elite mod continues to preserve and enrich the de facto Warhammer 40K RTS to this day.

Sorry for the delay in getting them here, but the installers for 2.6.1 and 2.7 are up, and the links to the changelogs are in the descriptions for the downloads. If you can, post any questions over on the official dawnofwar.info forums. I'll check here occasionally, but you'll have more luck getting answers over there.

You will need to install 2.6.1 before 2.7 to make 2.7 work.

Hi, I could use a bit of help if any one has encountered something similiar. I've installed the mod today, all worked fine. I played a couple of SP games just to get a feel of the changes and it went fine (at the time I didn't think much of the problem.) However when I got to MP, every game I played, in the first minute it says I lost connection to steam and it kicks me out. It happend in both games in SP and MP and I don't know what to do.

This game was one of the reasons of where I learned about the 40k universe. I had heard about it but this game made it come to life. Now with the ELITE MOD it has only gotten better. For almost 2 years now the team has been dedicated to bringing out patches and including other members in creating new units, abilities, maps and balance changes. They have modeling artists, portrait artists, voice actors and more. If you liked Dawn of War 2 this will be the reason you keep playing this oldie but goodie.
