    Hey all!

    Found out this game still has active player base thanks to 'Elite Mod'. Been playing, and enjoying it recently. Am I only one who got this one in their Steam library?

    It is a tactical RTS with cover mechanics, set in the universe of Warhammer 40,000.

    I still own the game, is there a list on what this "Elite Mod' adds?

    Elite mod does complete overhaul with balancing, changes lot of stats. I think it also adds Greyknights leader to Space Marines?

    Website of the mod

    They also have their ranked ladder system made since official one has been unsupported for long time. Thought I would try my wings at this, although I just played against "claimed to be a noob" who demolished me two times...

    After playing couple of multiplayer games with an equal skill-leveled player, man I love it. :D

    We used competetive format of game settings so: gamemode Victory Point Control with 500 tickets per team, standard resource income and fixed starting positions.

    Two games between my Orks and his Chaos Space Marines.
    0-26
    0-11

    Both losses to me. And in both games half-way through situation was like 250-190 to me, but once their high tier units brought in their effect, my Orks simply couldnt handle all the incoming dakka. Have to say kudos to Relic and THQ Nordic, this game has aged nicely.

    Anyone wanna play sometime? :rolleyes:

    Only mode I ever enjoyed in DoW 2 was the last stand mode. For the actual normal gameplay I prefer original DoW game with expansions and mods.
