Endgame is a competitive multiplayer mod. Taking inspiration from the game of chess, the objective of each game is killing the enemy's command squad while protecting your own from harm.

-- Each player starts with a set amount of resources and is unable to gain any more, making each unit precious and irreplaceable.

--
There are no base buildings, no tech-ing, and no territory capture. Units are quickly built and walk on from the edges of the map. The gameplay is entirely about combat.

-- All players start with 3 doctrine points and can choose one major doctrine and one minor doctrine unlock. These unlocks change what units and abilities you have available to use. Depending on which tree you choose, when your command squad gains veterancy level 3, a single use super-ability will be unlocked. These abilities are extremely powerful and will only last for a short amount of time. Use them wisely!

-- Find the playstyle that fits you the best: choose the doctrine unlocks and purchasable abilities that support the kind of player you are. Are you an aggressive player who likes to have a small but deadly force? Or will you attrition your opponent down slowly but surely? There are twelve doctrines overall to choose from! Even though every player has access to the same units and abilities, it is these choices that define how each army will play.

-- All the factions are identical: the only difference between the Allies and Axis are the unit models. All players have access to the exact same resources, units, and abilities. There are no stat differences between the units cross-faction - For example, Riflemen are identical to Volksgrenadiers in every single way.

Hello everyone! I've been working hard all summer to bring you a new patch!

The first major thing is a new game mode that includes tanks for those armor fanatics out there. All players get either a Pershing or a Tiger as their command squad, (remember that factions are identical stat-wise.) as well as purchasable AT gun support and Sherman or Panzer IVs. To play this new game mode, it is listed alongside Victory Point and Annihilate modes. There is both a VP and non-VP Tank Battle mode.

Doctrines have been expanded and now change your army around quite a bit. Certain doctrines now unlock off-maps, which can be purchased in the same way that Air Support is purchased.

The AI has been buffed quite a bit, and should provide a healthy challenge most of the time even while on the Standard difficulty.

Also, I have tweaked and added a whole bunch more maps based off of the original Relic maps, changed in order to accommodate gameplay for Endgame. I'd love to hear some feedback if further tweaks should be made, or if you have maps in particular you'd like to see in future releases.

I'll upload a list of the doctrine choices and what they unlock sometime in the future. I'm sure I'm missing some things that I should be mentioning here, but there really have been so many changes. Hopefully it feels more polished than ever before!

I would love to hear any feedback you have. I hope you enjoy the latest release.

Most RTS games are based upon the rock paper scissor prinicple...

Though as you self said this seems more like Chess :)

Got a couple of games going on the OMG teamspeak server.

Couple of comments:

Jeeps are really strong in the current iteration because they can hunt down command squads en masse and there's no AT weapons to deal with them. Perhaps give basic infantry (riflemen or volks) sticky bombs just for them.

Engineers don't have wirecutters so barbed wire is nearly impossible to deal with (I had to grenade it like 5 times xD )

Engineers can't repair (I assume this is intentional to stop jeep spam)

Tank traps are somewhat useless (though I guess they can stop jeeps?)

When the mod is played on the German version of COH all text is replaced by no key errors.

The assault command squad is REALLY strong. I don't know how you'd balance this in the early game. It pretty much rolls over everything. Conversely, the medic command squad is really powerful late game when it can attrition the opponent to death. I don't think the other two command squads seem particularly useful.

Love the mod! Very impressive!

The command squads are meant to be strong - in my mind I have them divided into two major categories; defensive and offensive. The medic (def.) and the assault command squads (off.) have no way of escaping suppression (this would be my suggestion to counter the strength of the assault squad - building a MG or LMG team first seems to be a solid first choice, at least the way I find myself playing), while the other two have more of a mobility focus - the drill sergeant has the heroic charge ability to help get out of sticky situations (which also provides a pretty decent fighting bonus as well. The motorcycle/jeep command squad on the other hand cannot be suppressed, but has to deal with the frailty of the motorcycle/jeep itself and a vulnerability to snipers. On the other hand, it is the only command squad able to suppress enemy units - note that it cannot fire on the move, but its MG is much better than the one that comes standard on the other motorcycles/jeeps.

Thank you! I'm very excited to have my work actually played.
About your comments - I have just fixed the locale issue (I hope. I can't really tell if all of it is fixed) and I'll put it up with the next patch, which I'm hoping to release sometime near the end of this week.

The engineers/pios not having wirecutters was an oversight on my part - when I was testing VP mode I noticed that one could just wire off the points and there'd be no way to stop it, but when I sat down to do my list of fixes after that round of testing it was something I forgot to fix! This will be in the next patch too.

I'm not sure what to do about the jeep issue - I never really had a problem with jeep spam when playing against my friends, but I could see putting a hard cap of having 3 or so on the field at any one time. I might also increase their build time, since I just changed it right before release from being way too slow. It might be a bit quick now.

I'm working on a manual to release that will hopefully make a few things clearer. (See next comment - character length issue)

Tank traps are kind of useless, but I figured might as well leave them in.

I don't have the time right now to get together forums or a teamspeak/vent server as of yet, but hopefully once I get these next few things done on my agenda I will be able to put something together.
Thanks again for your comment! I'm glad that you are enjoying my mod!

Is there a website or a ventrilo/teamspeak server for organizing games? Seems like a really cool mod.

you can add them without mgs so they will only be transpots or add trucks

Indeed. In order to facilitate the kind of gameplay I desired, the addition of vehicles (especially tanks) was impossible. This way there are no absolute counters to any unit - units still excel in certain situations but a skilled player finding his units in a less than desirable circumstance maintains the possibility of turning things in their favor.

This was something I was considering for the third command squad for the OF factions - a mobile force based around halftracks / scout cars. I'm not sure it is feasible, however.

This mod is very well constructed. It completely accomplishes the goal of emphasizing micro tactical skill over the macro aspect of building your forces.
