Back to Basics is a total conversion mod, that not only adds units and abilities but also a new weapon damage and penetration system. This improves gameplay and requires more tactical assaults and defenses. Weapon ranges are also greatly increased and also includes a greatly improved AI. Back to Basics: Battle of the Hegdes adds realism to Company of Heroes, to make it even better. It is compatible with Company of Heroes, Opposing Fronts and Tales of Valor, always with the latest patch. You do not have to own all 3 products of the Company of Heroes series to play Back to Basics.
After a long delay, we are proud to annouce the release of version 1.13 of Back to Basics. We have been working very hard on this, perfectionizing things; for improved balance and gameplay. The AI also has been hugely improved, and on a lot of maps it's almost undefeatable on expert. We know we promised that the new release would work with a launcher and installer, but Lake54 is not online that often, and he also never confirmed it worked without flaws. Hopefully it will work when we release the next version/patch
