Chaos Rising Removes GFWL

A new Steam community announcement reveals the removal of Games for Windows LIVE multiplayer support from Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War II - Chaos Rising, saying Relic is now running its own servers to manage multiplayer matchmaking in the real-time strategy sequel, though LAN support was also removed along the way (thanks Rock, Paper, Shotgun). Here's the deal:
Features removed:

  • LAN / Direct Connect.
  • Referee Mode.
  • Ability to “Pause” during multiplayer.

Other:

  • Games For Windows Live Removed.
  • Previously Dawn of War II and Chaos Rising Shared the same Leaderboards & Achievements. These have now been separated per title and using Relic Servers.
  • Relic Battle Servers integrated to manage multiplayer networking.

To be fair to "the people", the rage about removing LAN support is slowly starting. The joys of working as a community manager. Never a dull moment
