Operation Market Garden (OMG) is a persistent multiplayer only modification based off the award winning real time strategy game Company of Heroes. We put a strong emphasis on balance, community, transparency, and fun. Currently in an open Beta, we are constantly improving, adding new OMG features and content. Through our website the player tailors their company, customizing it to fit their play style and needs. Through our simple and easy to use launcher they join battle with their teammates against the enemy. There's no in game resource management, no base building, and no gimmicks. It's just pure combat, building on the already superb platform of Company of Heroes, and it's pure fun. Win or lose, your surviving units stick with you throughout your battles. The war persists, your troops persist, and its all at tip of your fingers.
Doctrines are here everyone, and its high time for an update on the proceedings.

Tier 1's are finally here and they have tried to add new layers of game-play to the mod, really allowing players to customize their companies with custom OMGmod doctrines.
Abilities such as 'Packing Heat' allow LT's and Captains to
be a fighting asset as well as a commanding unit by being able to
purchase Bren guns, AT rifles, Piats and Grenades.
The doctrine abilities are focused on improving game-play and
creating an interesting set of units which players can see
evolve into rugged veterans. With the introduction of doctrines the
community has been thriving with constant games and forum posts.
Information about the new doctrine abilities can be found here.
