Back to Basics: A Company of Heroes mod merging realism with balance and improved design. This mod reworks all aspects of the game to create a Company of Heroes experience that we feel is what 4 years of evolution of the original game could have looked like. New units, new damage model, new strategy and tactics while keeping damage output, technological rushes and all unit statistics in tight check. This mod also features massive AI improvements, spanning from fixes to broken features to total overhauls of AI combat behavior and strategic decisions.

Sorry about that! The campaign will have some troubles for sure. Working on fixing the bugs of the campaign is actually extremely time consuming and we're yet to properly fix everything. PE campaign is something we still haven't looked at at all. Again, sorry. Also, I can't promise anything about actually fixing it any time soon :(

I have played more than 300 games in CoH, and maybe 70 in the previous version of back to basics.

IA is overpowered again. After one hour and half of methodic game, with a slow and safe advance of my troops, I surrounded their base but was impossible for me to destroy their defences. I was playing german with terror doctrine. I had a mixture of all the weapons and the americans (Hard computer), had a combination of antitank guns (a lot of them), mortars and infantry with bazookas.

I reinforced my troops, I attacked together with all the guns, but I couldnt do anything. I was destroying their buildings, but their infantry didnt die. They reinforced theirselves all the time. I lost all my army at the end and I got bored. I lost SS Infantry, a King Tiger, a Tiger, three anti-air tanks, iron cross infantry, grenadiers, etc.

Man, you have to allow the special attacks at the enemy base (I mean for example fire storm or the V1 rocket). Unless it changes, I think its rather impossible to have a dinamic game.

@Bortighaun I will say one thing to you...Learn how to play, and than you can say somthing like that! The AI in this mod is the best I've ever seen in a mod! To bad the mod donĀ“t have expanded command trees, like BK, EaW, etc

I'm not sure I mind that much, but it would be nice to be able to use all those command point I have after I have fulled both trees.

l just download this and it is great mod but when l decide to slack and play with ai . ai easy british dont not do anything but just use their command truck and charge to the point (high income) but the road is block(by german) so their constant go there and died is instead of just going everytime they should adopt new tactic or change instead for just going to the same point

Well, in the last week I've played Skirmish and The Caen Campaign with Blitzkrieg, Europe at War and now Back to Basics. There is simply no comparison. Back to Basics is the most rational, balanced and fun of the 3 mods and far better than vanilla.

If you plan on playing any of the non German factions you need this mod. If you are one of those who believes all of the hype about the nazis in WWII then avoid this mod like the plague. I lost the first 3 skirmish battles with this mod just because the AI is so clever. The AI builds are now diverse and their tactics are nasty.

Be aware that this game lives to to its name, there are no flashy skins or much evidence that the mod is even active, until the AI kicks your ***. Infantry are far more useful, and the lowered crits makes no particular thing overpowering. I've come from just using flamthrower tanks and mortars in EAW to using everything again.

Brilliant mod, all it needs is some new skins to be perfect.
