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.
A brief message on OMG's plans for 2011, the addition of gliders, and what OMG accomplished in 2010.

We've entered a new year of OMG development, but before I talk about the things to come in 2011 lets take a look back at the progress made in 2010. Throughout the year veterancy was completely overhauled with its effects and requirements underwent multiple revisions. Also, there were two new units updates. One to Wehrmacht in July and the other to Opposing Fronts factions, British and Panzer Elite, in November. Operation Market Garden now features 25 custom made units not found in vanilla Company of Heroes. Each of these has custom models, textures, and statistics made to fit their specific role. Additionally, some of the 48 custom maps to offered by the modification were either revised or added in 2010. Beginning last February the OMG:Wiki started a massive renovation that finally finished in October. In November it dramatically expanded its in game statistics by adding roughly 200 in game weapon entries. It now stands as the most comprehensive Company of Heroes wiki around. The balance team stayed busy as well gathering community opinions, game play experience, and statistics resulting in several balance updates. 2010 was OMG's best year yet.
Building off of those achievements 2011 will have two main focuses, Doctrines and War Control Panel Three. Both of these project are already under development. Look for further information and previews in the coming weeks. However, today we have a long awaited feature that has finally come to fruition. Gliders are now working and available in the War Control Panel. Enjoy!
Have a safe and prosperous 2011.
