Dawn of War: Professional (DoWPro) is a mod for the Dawn of War franchise that has been developed over many years, and is based on the Warhammer 40000 universe. The mod aims to enhance the multiplayer experience through Player versus Player by incorporating intelligent gameplay design and balance with the exciting and spectacular game that is Dawn of War.

No longer will units become obsolete as you gain higher tech, and no longer will you have to spam a certain 'overpowered' unit in order to win.
In DoWpro strength through diversity is promoted, and with the return of the 'hard counter' system from the original Dawn of War game, DoWPro offers the player many different choices on their path to victory.

The latest version of DoWPro is for the third and last Dawn of War expansion: SoulStorm. Boasting nine completely unique races to choose from, DoWpro: SS offers a fair amount variety.

Key Features of the Mod:

- You can now use Wargear in multiplayer and skirmish games.
- Exciting and fun gameplay that differs greatly from SoulStorm in ways of how you research abilities and use your units.
- New graphics and visuals for every race.
- Sizeable community of its own, and can be played through the Steam Group or the Discord channel.
- New units for almost every race.
- A complete and instructional set of manuals to let you know every aspect of the mod and the armies.

Requirements:

- For DoWpro: SS you need SoulStorm, patched to version 1.20. For Steam users it is required its very own latest version.

Would it be possible to get an imperial guard bunker, or another upgrade for the damage and range of their bunker weapons ?

Hey Hollow, I know you don't generally care about the AI and maybe you're already aware of this, but if not, you should know the AI is pretty messed up in 3.68. For example, they will often just "give up"; they'll stop producing new units or progressing altogether. Dark Eldar AI is especially plagued by this, to the point of being completely broken. The AI also just doesn't seem to play as well in general compared to past versions. I went back to 3.67 and no longer have these problems, except for the "giving up" which now happens much less frequently. Moving units into their base seems to knock them out of it.

I also tried 3.66: maybe it's just me but the AI there seemed even better than 3.67. This was all on Insane, with the same settings in the AI Control Panel.

Any idea what's going on and if it can be fixed?

Nothing much can be done about it I am afraid. Your best bet is sticking out on Hard difficulty.

Right now it is unkwnon how the AI fares with the new changes and most likely it will be even worse than 3.68. Just saying.

I see, fair enough!

By "sticking out on Hard", you mean to say the AI encounters less issues on lower difficulties?

And if I may, what do you think is the most recent version with the best working AI? Anything you'd recommend doing with the AI Control Panel to avoid issues, as well?

My friend and I enjoy playing team games with AI allies, so we're trying to find a good setup. Then of course we switch to 3.68 for 1v1's.

AI on Hard difficulty has the same economic income as the human player. It is hardcoded so anything below that recieves less resources and Harder and Insane has more resource income to grant the artificial feeling of being more agressive, which it really is not.

Like you pointed out I do not really care that much about the AI whatsoever so I cannot tell you about any best version out of it.

If you play with AI allies it is hardcoded so said allies play a whole less worse and weaker than a human player.

Okay, yeah we figured they'd get extra resources. Didn't know about AI allies being coded as worse/weaker though, that's interesting. Many thanks for the input! We're looking forward to 3.69, hope it's going well for you.
