Company of Heroes

Postby Glimmerman » Aug 19th, 2006 at 10:57 pm

Anyone hear about this game? It's a WW2 RTS that's pretty similar to Warhammer 3k.

I got the demo in this month's PCGAMER and it is fun as shit.

Official demo isn't out yet and I haven't found one online, but the game is out in September so keep an eye out kthx.

Halftrack Rush with the Axis ftw.

Do the following...

At the start of the game build 2 additional engies or whatever they are called for Axis

Go around and cap every munitions point you can asap till you encounter resistance, at that point retreat to base

as soon as you can go to skrimish phase

build 2 MGs, 1 Grenidier squad (equip with Panzersreks), and 1 Sniper.

Put them into a Halftrack and run into the back of the Allied base. NOTE YOU MUST BE AT THE BACK!

Setup the MGs to cover all angles and put the sniper in the middle so he can pick off anyone who somehow gets by.

Then go to town on his base. If guys die just use the halftrak to reinforce em. Take out moterpool first and then get the troop production stuff, then whipe out the command center. He will be forced to bring every troop he has back to defend, which will all die via the MGs and Panzershreks.

As you do this build a few more troops and have them run around to cap the vic points. Blitz is a good doctrin here as you will get enough exp to call in light assault squads with some light tanks to take out any MGs he leaves around the map guarding the vic points.

This should all happen within the first 10 min of the game. I have done this about 10 times and never has the game taken more than 17 min and never have I been stopped.

Now all that said, I can not take credit for comming up with this. I got raped by this by some dude who said he was writing an article for one of the online gamming mags. It is anoying as shit. Only problem is if they do have base mines or somthing you are fucked cause all your resouces die on the way in.

So now all you COH players, gl.

Yea, it's definitly strong on the graphics end. (takes forever to load...) It's still freaking awesome. I just got past the "hill 192" level. I haven't done the online multiplayer yet... i'll have to try that sometime.

Wow this game has been out a year now? Still the best RTS out there IMO.

WiC is ok I guess, but CoH is more of a traditional RTS.
