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 quick update on the state of Balance, AND....13 days before our January 10th Launch, Operation Market Garden has opened up its Alpha to You!

Well Guys, we're getting *very* close to our January 10th Launch (ignore the Jan1 date here, its old and didnt take into account several people going on Vacation). Over the last week we've played more than 200 games of OMG and have 75% implementation achieved and nailed down. Most of my time over the past week has been spent getting games going (The launcher won't be out until closer to Launch so people have to do manual installs and its fairly screw-up prone). Beyond that, we've added more members to the newly formed "Cost" and "Doctrine" balance teams.
The Balance is coming along nicely, British emplacements are being heavily Tweaked, but as a faction they're very playable. We've gotten around the British movement penalty in a number of interesting ways - For more details on this go read WODU #9 here
It wasn't posted on ModDB because of the tone it's written in (its a joke!)
A finally, we've decided that we're going to open up the closed alpha to almost everyone!
Several new videos posted with information on how to join the Alpha & what to do once you're in - Gameplay footage coming soon!
