About The Great War 1918 with 11 comments by don_durandal on Apr 20th, 2014

While the team works on the French Army faction, here’s a much needed version 1.2 to fix some of the balance and graphic issues of previous versions. In addition it also introduces a new 3vs3 map.

Bellenglise (6p)
A map by MonolithicBacon

When the Entente and their allies began the Hundred Days offensive to liberate the terrain captured by the Germans in 1914 and the 1918 Spring Offensive their main obstacle was the Hindenburg Line. Built and reinforced since 1916, it consisted in five fortified positions covering the whole western front, the principal one being the Siegfriedstellung. Using concrete emplacements, terrain features and defence in depth it presented a formidable defensive line which the German Army was resolved to hold at any cost.


The St. Quentin canal was one such geographical feature upon which the Siegfriedstellung rested. On 29 September 1918 it was there, near the township of Bellenglise, that the Hindenburg Line was first breached by Australian, British and American units with the decisive support of tanks.


Bellenglise is a large 3 versus 3 player map. It mostly consists of fields, with a small hamlet in the middle. The whole map is cut in two by the St. Quentin canal which can be crossed at the bridge in the hamlet and at four separate fords. The canal’s banks are covered by wire entanglements however, and numerous lines of trenches mark the fields beyond.

How long will we still be able to play company of heroes?

I just began to wonder about that. As you all know, Relic implemented their dumb DRM/Onlineplay-Thingy, so you can only start CoH while logging in. Problem is, Relic belongs to THQ, and they probably won't last much longer. Chances that Relic get bought by someone in case of THQs insolvency also isn't that high. Insolvencies pretty much never go as planned, because the administrators don't get paid to do good work, in contrary, they get paid even more if they are slow.

I really hope this gets somehow sorted out. It would be a shame to loose this game because of stupid DRM.

@AfeefZabir You need to have "HOME" or "PC" selected at the top of the page.

If you accidentally selected platforms such as PS3, VITA, etc. nothing will show up in Mods section.

This is more than Command & Conquer and Star Craft "Get the resources, build a shit-load of units and steam-roll your enemy" style of game. Not that there is anything wrong with that. I do like to play a 15-20min game with no "consequence" for loosing or wining, from time to time. But ever since Company Of Heroes came's just amazing This game is way more realistic and in-depth than any other WW2 RTS game out there*.You have your account and as you play you get higher military rank and…
