The Great War is a modification for Company of Heroes meant to bring the war two decades earlier. This mod focuses on the later years of the First World War. Currently the two teams will be the British Expeditionary Force against the German Empire, however with time the team will try and bring some more nations in, such as France and Austria-Hungary. This mod will focus or realism but keep the game balanced enough to make it enjoyable. Things to look for in the mod are the famous artillery strikes and the infamous gas attacks. Trenches will provide vital cover for infantry while tanks will roll over the battlefield and instil fear into the enemy troops.
The idea is awesome. Also the mod is:you will feel like you are playng a new game. Nice gameplay and textures.
It would me a 10/10 if it was so unbalanced, let me explain:
AI will almost alway try to push into your land with mortar and artyllery spam.
THE TROUBLE IS THAT THEY HAVE SUCCES WHEN DOING THIS. Arty was made insanely OP and able to destroy everything. Dont say to me that i should use mortars or snipers, because i did not install this to play spamming.
I hope that TGW developers take this as a sane but angry review, Im angry because the cannon-mortar spam actually does not allow me to play this AWESOME mod on wich i would spen my money into.So i hope the developers take in consideration a better re-balance.
Well done firstly, but there are a very important issues to adress here. One thing being it's the same fast paced game, bolt actions rifles old technology. Another point, 2 artillery gun max? Seriously? Artillery is a huge part of WW1 and you barely touched on it. Costs are another issue. The costs are way too high for as useless as the units are, the AI can spawn em faster than you can and you're done. But I expect an updated release will ease that. I'd suggest dropping everything 100 man power. Also the trenches are really glitchy, most units cant figure out how to get in for at least a minute. The lack of arty is laughable and the lack of variety is awful. Please fix and you'd get a 10/10
