What is "Europe at War"?
EaW is a historical mod for Company of Heroes that adds new battlefronts with new commander trees, abilities, units, vehicles and weapons for each, representing in the best way, as far as possible, historical accuracy, to immerse players in a much more realistic gaming experience. Situated on a Western theatre from the warm sands of north africa, italian battlefields, beaches of Normandy, Dutch Tulip fields and the defensive lines of the Rhine in germany. (may be considered a "5 in 1" mod )

Command the 8th British Army or Rommel's DAK. three new doctrines for each army and new real units prepared for combat in the desert.
Tanks and anti-tank can yield the maximum in the great plains of sand, but we must not neglect the sky: the RAF and the Luftwaffe are in constant fight for the air domain.

Allied troops landed in Italy from sea and air. During this long campaign the Allied and Axis forces fought fiercely for every hill and every village. The companies just have very few heavy tanks due to the mountainous terrain. The defense, aviation and artillery are imposed.

The paratroopers were sent far from their objectives and scattered, even so achieved most of its objectives. Landing troops took heavy losses on the beaches but finally forced the withdrawal of the defenders. Hedges became death traps for the infantry and Shermans. The German anti-tank and machine guns were hiding in any corner. The Luftwaffe was almost nonexistent and allied air supremacy makes the difference against the powerful axis tanks.

What at first seemed a perfect plan became hell for the Men of the XXX corps. The paratroopers met their targets quite effectively, but were isolated from the armored support, fighting with heavy casualties until run out of ammo. The only American troops (82nd &101st; airborne) are dropped more near and could join the British tanks, but the German ambushes on Highway 69 delayed the progress and finally stopped the offensive.

The Patton and Montgomery armies prepare to cross the Rhine, trying to secure the bridges, using boats and floating bridges. Gathered ammunition, soldiers and tanks. The artillery constantly bombard the opposite river bank, while the German divisions were entrenched to resist attack. The axis used the remains of the Luftwaffe, artillery and V1 rockets to try to destroy the remagen bridge, but without success. At this stage were used late tanks like the Jagdtiger, the M26 pershing or the T26E1 Super pershing.

Please balance the mod for example in the "Infrantary Combat" mode..
Me and my friend just played against 2 AI's with the Germans and i must say it was absolutely horribly unbalanced..
The USA kept spamming artillery and massive airstrikes which destroyed both our bases in a matter of seconds, not to mention all our units..
The funny thing is i cannot use my fighter-bombers with the Luftwaffe doctrine because it is locked in Infrantary combat mode, but the American Bombing runs are NOT? Also i had AA.. Lots of AA.. all vet 3 with HE ammunition to make them better vs aircraft but they were useless.. also the USA Scout squad is ridiculous.. For example their view range is sick, seeing everything.. + the ability to give bazookas in addition to them being able to fire them like 10 kilometers away makes it the most OP antitank unit in the game.. They keep onehitting many tanks and vehicles far beyond even the snipers firing range which is simply dumb. Hopefully you will look into these problems. Thanks

Well for some reason the Americans could call in very heavy airstrikes, please check it. (Mod version 6.1.8 beta)

your mod is so unbalanced.... The Americans are overpowered, the germans have no chance against them. Everything is made to favor the allies.

When I try to start a game with a friend of mine, his game crashes the moment it loads. Usually it locks up, with small blue boxes for units (With the message: "Missing RGM".

This is the second time doing the install, both times because of this issue and it was installed exactly the same as on my pc, yet mine works fine. Any ideas?
