Thanks for your support! May the best mod win!

Excellent!

Greenlight, eh? :)

As a side note, how do you think you'll fare against Company of Heroes 2? The alpha has been released, and I hear it's quite chock-full of features.

@The Soldier
Yeah, we have heard of them :).

However, regardless of CoH 2 being released or not, if players have interest in adding EF to Steam, so be it :).

First of all best of luck with the MOTY awards may the best mod win.
Now addressing your Steam Greenlight subject. You are aware you are not following the rules for Greenlight games. For instance you need special authorization from the respective game developer to post stuff on Greenlight if you have not made the game. Seeing as EF is a mod just like BK we did not develop the game.
Or do you have specific authorization from Relic to post your mod on Greenlight?

@Frehelias
We do not need authorization from Relic, we need it from THQ, which was already discussed with them.

I'd like to see that permission. Not that I'm begrudging you on Greenlight. But I have some doubts, as you are giving out copyrighted material with your mod download.

@Ruhrpottpatriot Would you kindly point out once piece of copyrighted material contained in the mod, that we haven't been allowed to use by the copyright holder, please?

The voices of the Russians. They are, as you know, the voices of the U.S. faction from the Russian CoH version stripped of some lines (*cough* T-34 reporting as Sherman in old versions *cough*). I don't know if you have permission from THQ to use them, if you have (and I'd know who gave you permission, so I can ask him if we could distribute the German voices with BK).

At least here in Germany that is against copyright laws.
Also modding in general is a very very grea area, but that is a different topic.

Even without permission this would fall well within the realm of fair use, as would most modding issues. If the guys at Relic/THQ/Greenlight think we've breached anything and remove us from Steam, so be it, but regardless it's still of nobody's concern besides our own.

Well If you say so. I don't have my qualification for Anglo-American law yet so I'm not that good at subsuming your mod under the terms of fair use, but I can tell you here in Germany it would definitely be a breach of copyright (as the European law does not know an institution like fair-use. It's purely American).

As great as I want COH 2 to be, hope this mod doesn't die :(

I guess think of this mod being for the people who are reluctant to get CoH 2 or possibly can't afford it?

Well, hopefully the release of the Ostheer will bring back some uniquity and blur the parallels enough keep people playing for a good while. There's certainly stuff in the Ostheer that you won't be seeing in CoH2.

Don't worry, I'm convinced that CoH 2 probably won't include the British and American factions at first release, so this mod will always have the edge of having more factions and thus, more unique match-ups---9 as opposed to just 1. That is, of course, until the expansions add more factions into the fray. But for the meanwhile, I'm sure that CoH:EF will still remain as strong and active as it is now even after CoH 2 is released. :)

So it is basicly a stand alone on Steam?

@Mr.BoxyFoxy
Nope, it would be a mod and you would need a to have bought any CoH game in order to use it.

Judging from the alpha, not much. I mean, besides the units and stuff (which was pretty unavoidable), CoH2 plays quite different to CoH1 or EF.
