Operation Market GardenOperation 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 players can tailor their company, customizing it to fit their play style and needs. The website based War Control Panel allows the player to join their teammates battles against the enemy. There's no in game resource management, no base building, and no gimmicks. It's just pure multiplayer combat, building on the already superb platform of Company of Heroes, and it's pure fun. Win or lose, surviving units stick with you throughout your battles. The war persists, your troops persist, and its all at tip of your fingers.

We're developing a sleek new website based interface for managing the meta-game, which will improve upon the easy to use system already in place. A quick and simple updater installs the modification, keeps it current, and launches it. We even have an extensive wiki that reflects the modification and community content. If we don't have it we're probably already developing it, so you have all the tools you'd ever need to lead your troops into combat.

OMG's Content

For a more in depth guide to Operation Market Garden's features see OMG & You.

OMG's uses the regular Company of Heroes factions including the Allies, US and British, and  the Axis, Wehrmacht and Panzer Elite. Players can pick a faction from each side to use in a campaign that adds depth to the the titanic struggle. Alongside these war accounts OMG offers a skirmish mode, or fun accounts, in which you can play as any army. This allows you to try out different company builds, strategies, or just wish to play a game with no strings attached.

There are three game modes in Operation Market Garden. Map Control Points (MCP) and Victory Point (VP) determine how your population gain or loss is calculated, and Spectator mode is for live broadcasts of your games.


OMG's persistent war represents the never ending struggle between Axis and Allies where your impact its ebb and flow. In addition, your surviving troops and the combat experience they gain carry over from battle to battle. Additionally, from winning battles you gain victory points,
which are used to customize your army.

The combat experience your units gain translates into one of the five levels of veterancy present in OMG. The first three levels improve your units fighting
capability. At the fourth level you can customize your unit's name, and at the fifth you can add a custom skin to it. This system promotes smart game play as it urges you to conserve your units, use them wisely, and make sure that they retreat off the field when worn down.

Naturally, units start as off as inexperienced and are at a minor disadvantage when fighting experienced units. To counter this and aid new players we've added rubber band systems, which help to soften the learning curve.

Along with experience you can earn victory points by winning the game. Winning occurs when your opponents runs out of units, surrender, or you control the map. Victory points are the common currency and one of the main features of the modification. They are used to further customize your army in the many systems described below.

Company Management & Customization

OMG features an easy to use website based interface that houses the War Control Panel in which you manage your account. You can design your company's layout, create and join games, add passwords to games, choose your map, and has a real time chat function.

As in vanilla Company of Heroes you can chose doctrines to specialize your company. Each company can have its own doctrine. These are the same three doctrines per army in Company of Heroes, but they're currently being redesigned and expanded by our development team. Our plan is to have players' companies constantly evolving to fit their play style. Using victory points players can pick and choose from a number of unique abilities, new units, resource bonuses, and other benefits.

Umm I think I may have missed it, but is the damage system like in Vanilla, or different?

The mod tries to change as few unit stats as possible.
Broken things like Trenches have been appropriately changed.
Sorry for the late answer, you'll probably never read this, but progress on the mod has only recently picked up again and we kind of forgot about this page.

I have to admit I have seriously no idea what you're talking about; No one needs to pay anything, we just offer a few forum perks to donators, for servers aren't free.
You have to download the Updater, put it into your Company of Heroes Folder, and run it.
It will automatically check your ID to make sure you're not a banned user, and then should proceed to check your gamefiles. Afterwards, you can click download to download the entirety of the mod into an automatically created mod folder.
As for registering on the Website, if you want to register for our WarCP to create your own army, you need to run the Updater once for the aforementioned ID check, afterwards you should be good. We're sorry for the hassle, but we had problems with certain players in the past that we'd like to avoid.

Feel free to ask any related Questions on our forums, as well.
