File Description

I have always relished tough battles in Dawn of War. The most memorable fights I have had invariably involve a small desperate force holding out against a much larger enemy. Tensely clicking in the game, hunching over my keyboard, I fight for nothing more than survival. A mad struggle to hold the line! Truly the stuff of legendary, glorious battle!

I have attempted to recreate this atmosphere in this map: Firebase Gloria. This map should be played in annihilation mode, teams set to 1 vs. 2 with resource sharing on. I suggest playing against "harder" difficulty AI. Human players will get bored with constantly throwing troops at Gloria.

I am aware that Dawn of War was designed with certain anti-turtle features, and that the majority of players favor mobile skirmishing. I hope this map can do a little to show you the fun that can be had in a defensive fight. For those who do give this map a try, I wish you as much fun playing it as I have had making it. Here’s to Firebase Gloria! May she withstand the sternest of tests!

Background:

This planet is barren and inhospitable. But its location makes it a strategically vital planet to hold. Countless vicious skirmishes have been fought, and we have managed to gain nominal control over this planet for now. Our victory has been far from complete though. The enemy’s military presence is still powerful, and they are expected to launch yet another invasion to try to wrest the upper hand from us.

Commander, you come highly recommended, and I am assigning you to take charge of Firebase Gloria. Firebase Gloria is located in a remote mountain pass in the inhospitable polar region, and sits astride one of the most likely routes the enemy will take in the event of an invasion. Gloria is manned by some of our best troops, and boasts superior defensive terrain. In the event of an enemy invasion, your command is to send word to planetary command, and holdout against the enemy onslaught until reinforcements can be dispatched.

You need to be clear about Firebase Gloria’s critical role in our continental defense plan. Your command will be small, due to the logistical difficulties of maintaining a firebase in such a remote location. Although Gloria boasts excellent defensive terrain, the enemy you will face is going to consist of the main body of their invasion force. They will outnumber you by a vast margin. Don’t expect a clean victory, Commander; I fully expect that if and when the enemy attacks, you will be struggling to hold the line. And that’s what Firebase Gloria is for. 

Remember, Commander. We’re counting on you to hold the line at all costs! Good luck!
