  • No economy! You buy and upgrade your troops at the start of each round from a fixed pool of Requisition. There are no Tier or Power requirements.
  • No fluff! RPG elements have been removed, and where possible abilities have been either made ambient (Fleet of Foot) or removed entirely (Kraken Ammo).
  • Fast, focused action! Maps are smaller and weapons deal more damage, but with only half their normal range.

So it's like you made a more shallow version of DoWII...

No - I made a narrower one. The changes are all focused on giving player decisions more meaning.

No, he made it the way it was originally made. The way it was before DoWII.

It was Dawn of War before it was Dawn of War II, making "Dawn of War II" Smaller isn't anything like Dawn of War. :P

I like the idea of a set resource pool at the start of every level.

Reminds me a bit of a CoH mod.

War Over Europe or something where you fight with a company of soldiers that you buy ahead of time from a website?

It was pretty fun except that CoH wasn't as balanced/stable fight as DoWII

Your talking about Europe in Ruins and Operation Market Garden, both of which are far better balance than vcoh.

Good job on the mod though guys, haven't looked at the details but the work itself is impressive.
