For those of you not familiar with 'Thermopylae' it was the location where 300 Spartans (and 700 allies, a fact often omitted in popular media ;)) made their stand against the vast Persian horde. It was a narrow pass, allowing an elite, small force to hold out against a tide of conscripts.
This map imitates that location superbly, going as far as to add red-cloaked heretic corpses as Spartans. Well made, this is great for history-lovers like me, fans of the film '300' and those looking for an intense 3 vs 4 war.
Thermopylae 1.0 by Jazzeh :THIS IS ONLY REALLY A BETA, TO SEE IF YOU LIKE IT. IF THE COMMENTS ARE GOOD, I MAY CONSIDER MAKING IT A MONSTER MAP, PROBABLY A 2V2 WITH THE SEA AND MORE WINDING PASSES. Players: 7 Relics: 4 CL's: 1 SP's About 30? Slags: 3 Description: This is based on the battle of Thermopylae, also known for the movie 300. It's a 3 vs 4 map, with the 3 players having the narrow pass near them, with heavy cover on their side, while the other 4 players have negative cover. Howver, the 4 players have more strat points for better resources, so i reccomend playing this map on resource rate: normal and starting resources: standard. Just to balance it out a bit. Installation: Extract the files to C:/Program Files/THQ/Dawn of War Dark Crusade/W40k/Data/Scenarios/MP. Create any of the files if they're not there. This map has been tested, and all relic units can fit through the gap. The only problems are the minimap, icon and it's a bit laggy when you get to the wall of dead bodies. Contructive criticism is much appreciated, also is any comments. If any other bugs/glitches are found, please email me at jaz_chasty28[AT]hotmail[DOT]com Permission is granted to edit this map for your personal use, if you wish to use it in a map pack/mod or whatever, please notify me first.
