On February 16th 2012 THQ-Relic launched the latest patch for DoW2:R 3.19.1 Shortly after that THQ-Relic dropped all support for the game. The problem was that the latest patch broke more things that what it actually fixed, leaving behind useless broken units, very abusable glitches and a questionable units' balance. More than 10 months have elapsed since then and there have been quite some attempts to fix the game trough mods but all these attempts have ended in drastic changes to the game core mechanics, adding more units and abilities and in many cases biasing the game's balance to favor specific armies. So as we stand today, there are only two ways to keep playing DOW2:R Either play a broken version or a total conversion that is no more DoW2:R. Because of this we are starting this initiative to start a community patch mod that will fix bugs and make balance changes to existing units without taking away the vanilla flavor

Hello Everybody,
As promised we have released our first community patch, it is right now awaiting moddb authorization and should be released pretty soon.

Once you have it in your machines make sure to take a look at the default Black Templars chapter ;)

We will be looking forward for other publishing options to speed up the release process
Greetings, The RCP team

I honestly dislike, if not outright hate, steam. Is there some way to play this game without it? That said part of the reason I never purchased this game was because of the lack of support, and also due to the major amount of bugs reported in various reviews. Glad the community is picking up the slack, but for a company to sell a non-functional unit of whatever IS criminal and can be prosecuted in my country. How can steam continue to profit from such a game? I loved the previous dawn of war and purchased the whole set of the first installment. If you, the community, manage to fix this game, should your efforts not be compensated by the company? I think its only fair since they have profited from you and left you to pick up the pieces.
