Default The Dawn of War 2 thread

This is an unofficial thread for anything DoW 2.

I recently bought the game (and love it), and I'm currently downloading it from my desktop to my laptop via Steam (and BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOY does it take a long time). Right now it's at 71%, so by the time I get back from school It'll be done


How about you guys? You got DoW2?

Death Korps W1 T0 L1

Yeah, I don't like it. If I wanted to play an RPG, I'd get an RPG, if I wanted to play an RTS, I'd get an RTS.

I like the DOTA mod and am looking forward to further C2C mods, but I've moved on. It's an utter disappointment with lacklustre PvP, sorry, Multiplayer.

I heard the next DoW2 expansion (redemption) will have multiple campaigns, or the ability to play the campaign as different races. Sounds good.

Yes, I do have Dawn of War II, both the normal game and Chaos Rising, got them for a real bargain price, 4.99€ each (), but I am unable to play them () for my computer is to crappy to handle them... I tried to install DoW II, and when it was finished my computer crashed...

Guess I will have to stick with the original Dawn of War games then... Glad that they work without any problems...

Follow this, and you can play DOW2 on your comp... if its a laptop


DOW2 is disappointing really. If it was like DoW, with just improved graphics and better/balanced game play, then it would be much better. However, innovation doesn't mean it will be better.

It is a laptop, and a very crappy one... No plans of keeping it for a long time tough, might just go on and buy a new one when Dark Millenium is released...

And cant Retribution already get here? I have a place reserved for it on my shelf, and it looks crap without something there...

It has a campaign for every race featured in the game as far as I have heard.
