Acording to Warhammer 40k lore, many battles take weeks at the very least; however with DOW they take mere minutes. Now don't get me wrong, I don't want to sit in front of the screen for 4 weeks trying to kill those friggin orks. I also don't want the battles to be over in 30 minutes.

Many times, I have set up intricate base defenses and laid out battle plans to assault the enemy base. Very rarely do I ever get to use them. Either the enemy has a stroke and stops resisting, or they get divine help and whoop my @$$. This is annoying.

I would like to play some maps where it is VERY difficult to penetrate to the other team's territory. I need more maps like Fire81's Temple of Blood. These maps promote extended battles where you push your assault but always seem to break on the enemy's walls like beach waves. (Vice-Versa when they push thier assault) Something that requires tactics or some SERIOUS rushing techniques are what I'm looking for.

If thier are any maps like this out there, plz post links.

REMEMBER: I want massive, extended wars of attrition... not pissing contests.

well you also got the 3 pplayer map "Inquisitor's fortress" where 1 guy's in the fortress while 2 other try to break in and kill him (or he breaks out and kills them). But you can also try Black Fortress, a really large scale 8 player map where the fights take place on 2 (relatively) narrow places till one manages to break through. It's my favorite map and i've played among my best game on it. You'll need the fan mappacks for these.

Elsehow, DoW being a fast game it oftens sums up into one single fight that goes from your base to the opponent's till one gets killed (when 1's down, the rest's usually doomed within a few minutes) si it's quite hard to get games like you're looking for.

Well for finding a happy medium in game length like that,If you want big battles there usally going to last longer then 30 min...well atleast mine do.I would stick to the 2v2 o4 3v3 if you only want a game to last 30 minutes. I love Black Fortress(Been some great battles on that map but they took way longer then 30 minutes).Also if you want some competition to the battles from your Ai.I suggest downloading the AI mod http://dawnofwar.filefront.com/file/Dawn_of_War_Skirmish_AI_Mod;47401

for a freaking long battle you can also play "lost hope" on 5v3 insane comp stomp QS with "destroy HQ". That single battle went on for 96minutes till we finally crushed em. 2 of us had to relocate (including me on spot 5, next to the comps), our part of the map was covered with turrets of all kind and one of us dropped (which didn't help) but we finally got them ( it's a really nice replay to watch)
