The Europe in Ruins team is proud to present the latest iteration of their award winning modification with:

Europe in Ruins takes the fast paced, intense and surreal combat that you've come to know from Company of Heroes and combines it with persistent environment,
ever changing meta-gameplay and ongoing war. The modification sees you creating and commanding your very own battalion in which you can customize with any
units and upgrades you wish; Company of Heroes strategy has never had so much choice. Not only do you get to build up your battalion, but as you units battle,
they will gain and retain all the experience they have earned, carrying over from battle to battle; going from green to elite! Not only do units gain veterancy, but
your battalion as a whole increases in effectiveness through doctrine unlocks and other advantages. Each of these unlocks are designed so that the player can
tailor their battalion to their own likes and play styles. The combinations choices are endless! Europe in Ruins: Reinforcements adds to the already ground breaking
game play of Europe in Ruins by adding in the new version 2 launcher, a bunch of new maps, the new reworked doctrines and with new innovative systems for army
purchase and persistence.

What is in this latest release:

• A Brand New launcher (Launcher Beta Version 2 is online and running)
• Sleek, Sexy and Streamlined! See Launcher pictures below.
• Two new game modes: Reinforcements & Meeting Engagements
• Reinforcements = players from each side enter battlefield 1 at a time.
• Meeting Engagements = Everyone comes on at the same time for instant action!
• The ability to choose Allied/Axis attack • 40+ high quality maps specifically designed for Europe in Ruins
• Complete persistency, All units retain vet, and continue to use it in their next battles.
• A complete installer that contains the Europe in Ruins files, launcher, and maps. No Mess
• 12 unique doctrines, with lots of exciting new abilities for players to discover. • Soft capping availability system.

Our Launcher program where you begin your career as a Commander in Europe in Ruins and start the creation of your very own battalion!

5 comments by EiRGroundfire on May 19th, 2013

Hey guys,
The Europe in Ruins team has released a new patch! This patch has some new game content and allows for Steam compatibility.
For those new players who need to install a new version of the mod, the mod must now be installed into your steam directory.

Our current installer does not automatically put the auto updater into your steam version of COH and this must be done manually.

Just install the auto updater into your steam folder COH, which should look like this:
When you put the autoupdater here, it will work and automatically download the mod to your steam COH.

All Europe In Ruins games will be launched from the launcher that is installed along with the mod.

Following these steps above will keep the installer from calling you ugly names. (our coder has a sense of humor)

Thanks and stay tune for our future PR release where the EIRR team will be showcasing our new war card system and fully working warmap.

- Groundfire [community manager]

I go on Sunday mornings gmt 1:00+ time around 8:45-9:30am and I waited for 50 minutes for a game, none came. There were 2 allies a PE and me but the PE guy and another wehrmacht guy refused to join when we needed 1 more axis player, very frustrating

That is mostly because During that time Americans are going to sleep and the europeans are waking up.
If you want a good time to get a game(not that there is a specific time to do so) go for a friday/saturday at about 22:00 GMT.

I know that all the americans are sleeping but I can not go on any other time, and I'm sure there are more than 3 early rising europeans/asians excluding me

We choose to maintain a largely vCoH look, but if your vCoH skins are modified, then they shall show up in EIRR as well.

I hate this mod, making me go online and register. After having to download a huge file, I couldn't play the game cause the client did not allow me to enter in a "space".

So, you hate the mod because you cant have the name you want?

Your launcher name needs to match your COH name, which doesnt allow for spaces either. It needs to be this way otherwise your army wont save.

Sounds like you need to re-evaluate your priorities before you slander our mod again.
