    The Last Stand

    For anyone still playing Dawn of War 2, or wanting a reason to come back to it, check out
    community.dawnofwar2.com

    They are adding a co-operative multiplayer mode where you take control of either a Space Marine Captain, Eldar Farseer, or Ork Mekboy (in any combination of 3) to take on waves of enemies, in a continue-until-you-die, classic Survival fashion.

    You gain equipment and experience to advance your hero over time. Definitely reminds me of Survival mode in L4D or even Horde mode in GoW2, in a way.
    The patch hits this October. Sounds like a good way to play multiplayer for people who don't feel like getting obliterated by a much more skilled opponent due to poor matchmaking.

    I haven't beaten it, but I've made it to 20 on several occasions. A really good teamplayer eldar is key. Group teleport in the later rounds is a live saver.

    I found out that if you equip the Mek with Big Boom, the default Teleporter pack, and any kind of close range weapon, and you get yourself a cheap nuke. That explosion you get from Big Boom is HUGE.

    Finally got to play it today, with AdeptAbyss. Very very fun game. Wave 9 is definitely a tough one, I thought I would be safe in the building from those Banshees, but those Shurikan cannons didn't seem too worried :\

    This mode is very very addicting. I've been playing it with a friend of mine non-stop. Wave 9 is really tough without a well coordinated plan. Can't wait to get some of the bigger death dealing abilities :D!

    I got my steam back up to work last night and started playing Last Stand and i have to say i enjoyed it very much.
    Itīs quite some good fun and the gear you can unlock and all that stuff is a good system to keep players to play that IMO.
    But than again i just started playing it and at the very beginning everything is fun cause itīs new.

    Re: The Last Stand

    I think I'm most looking forward to the Mekboy, and maybe the Captain. I just can't get into playing Eldar, though I must admit that they do go squish/blow up fantastically.

    For reference though, Tyranids haven't been OP for quite some time (well maybe Hormagaunt speed but that's it and THAT's getting nerfed...) They've been hit so hard with the nerf bat it's very sad. GFWL is much more stable for the game these days but it's still not perfect (nor will it ever be).

    Re: The Last Stand

    In original dow it was more of build micro than unit one. They've tried to turn it around in dow2 but it is more macro focused now instead of having unit micro (aka how you place your units around battlefield rather than how you play the unit).

    I play it occasionally but before the patch I felt it was too single minded, and yeah tyranids were overpowered anyone can admit that ;) (thx to the rippers + ravener mega tunneling). Also the fact that I lost 3 times in multiplayer due the live crashes made me boil abit (besides all the other crap live gave) in-row + those were the last 3 ranked games I played :P
    I like what they did, but I'm looking forward to new races. I still do random non-ranked matches when I got the time.

    Re: The Last Stand

    I really mostly play 3v3 (it gives the less micro-intensive players a chance to build and actually compete) but those maps do look pretty cool. 1v1 I'm awful, something like 2-15 (I haven't played a ton of that because it quickly gets discouraging, the people play that ranked seem to REALLY know what they're doing.) I might like to try 2v2 sometime though.
