Hello fellow Blitzkriegers

As many of you may be aware there are registration issues on the BK forum.

And since work has begun on Blitzkrieg Mod for Company of Heroes 2, we made a new forum.

I say to you all sign up there in order to keep the latest updates and news from us.

Here is the address New BK Forum

We will keep supporting CoH 1 as well but no more regular updates as our main focus will be CoH 2.

Xalibur we have not heard anything from him for a long time. If he may return he is free to join us at the new forum.

WolfCZ is the new administrator on the new forum. The rest of the team is unchanged compared to the current team.

The whole team will be seeing you on the new forum.

It happens sometimes, just re-start your PC and try it again. Sometimes things go wrong the 1st time, give them a 2nd chance.

Ohh sorry, I forgot about your problem.

Just post it on the bugs and tech support forum, I don't know about that. I Know things can freeze up overtime but just play some different map for now until they can respond.

[CWC]SHADOW Jul 11 2010 says:

The german tanks are already WAY better then the allied ones if used correctly. Support them with infantry and micro them good and it's a piece a cake tos lice trough hordes of Shermans. If you send in a Tiger without support you deserve to have it got shot down quickly.

Realistic distance had been tried a long time ago and the Axis factions got unstoppable with it. That's why we refused to incldue this again. Besides it is not possible to make a game 100% realistic, in this case the maps are just to small for real ranges. Every tank could shoot over the biggest map, smae with artillery. I'd be happy if we could get over the "but it would be realistic!" argument. A game aims on gameplay and fun and both are sacrificed if realism get's the upper hand, you also have to think about the other 2 factors. No one would want to play a heavily unbalanced game just because it would be more realistic.

Keep in mind that if BK would be realistic, the allies would always win in the end, because, well, it would be realistic... ;)

So true :D I am usually only whining around when i see things "unrealistic" that could have done better. Like having strange Tank-Type-Hybrids that never existed in reality. There are points where realism would ruin a games fun but a lack of realism can also destroy the atmosphere of a game.
I have been playing Theatre of War for such a long time with mods giving them game over 200 pretty "realistic" units and the maps are huge (some of them 2km from one corner to another)...of course thats not what you could make of CoH. Afterall i really like your work and i think you did good. My Panzergrenadiers love to go into battle side by side with PzIV or StuGIV...
Keep up the great work. I dont know if its ok to say that but my friends and me stopped playing vanilla CoH totally and only play your mod..whats that for a feedback :D

[CWC]SHADOW Jul 14 2010 replied:

Hehe, nice to hear that. Personally I also stopped playing vCoH when I discovered BK, so I know the feeling if you try vCoH after some months of BK again and realise: "WTF??". :p

Ok, what do i need to do to download the mod? Which download do i do, as this mod looks rather interesting. i have downloaded some mods before, including the Eastern front mod,but this one looks much older.

hire2for1 Jul 11 2010 replied:

1.Install Patch 2.601
2.A CoH game.
3.Download the latest version of this mod.
4.Yes you can have any mods installed as long as their in the correct format or something related.

[CWC]SHADOW Jul 11 2010 replied:

4. As long as the other mods don't overwrite the vanilla CoH files they will work with BK. But RC_Realism Mod f.e. overwrites CoH files and WILL NOT work together with BK. You need a clean installation for BK, if any CoH files ahd been messed up by other mods BK will not work.

For the rest check hire2for1's post.

i think it would be awsome if you worked with the eastern front mod team and combined the mods, though this will probably never happen, it would be the best CoH mod EVER!!

Best COH mod you will find, most realistic you will get in COH, with no new factions this mod pwns everything, imagine with new factions, but its alot of work, so dont get angry on the devs if they dont add any, which i dont think they will, but anyway, play it and you will never find yourself using the vCOH shortcut again ;)

IMO "realistic" damage system should be accompanied by at least somewhat realistic resource availability and NUMBERS, yes numbers. I mean, how the hell are you calling realistic several tigers (or some other of the kind) against few shermans anyway?
In other words - nazi-favouring (game-wise) mod, plus I, personally, find it to quickly become a bit boring. And if you really want realism - go play "Men of war", or any of the various mods for it, including nazi-biased (game-wise).
