Eastern Front is a free mod for Company of Heroes. Following the ethos of mimicking a Relic Entertainment expansion pack, Eastern Front has succeeded in adding two full new factions, the Soviet Red Army and the German Ostheer, packed with unique and exciting units to the existing armies - a feat never before achieved in the Company of Heroes world.

Report RSS Looking for balancing players!

The steam release draws close. We are looking for good players!

Posted by on


Hello,

We are looking for balancing players to help strength the Steam launch of EF. The amount of content we have coming is huge, and will most likely rival the amount of content seen in Opposing Fronts and Tales of Valor combined.

Steam Keys are limited so, so if you would like to join us, you will have to go through an audition process. The audition process will be both a practical demonstration of your skills, and an interview with the members of the development team, you may also be subject to a small background check. After passing the audition process, you will also be asked to sign an NDA.

The NDA will be strictly be enforced, no exceptions. We have a positive working relationship with Relic, as well as an internal testing SVN, and we will not put these in jeopardy.

So, if you think you can help us out, and have the skill and time to do so. Post your steam account below, and a quick little blurb about why you would like to help us out.

~Archaic Entertainment Team.

Makes it sound more seriously doesn't it? ;D. The background check might be a little over the top though xD.

Perhaps a short description of the 'do's and 'don't's as a 'balancer', as well as short description of said NDA would help a bit =)

It's kinda hard to say, I would say it's a little higher then just playtester because you are able to propose concepts and ideas (and not just deliver feedback which we'll analyze). So you'll be playing a more 'active' role as a Balancer.

If I got the picture right this is shaping to be a job for 'junior game designer' =) Sadly I have little to no experience in this sphere. Surely I have 'fantasies' of my own but that doesn't necessarily mean they can be implemented. It's not like I don't like your mod and I don't want to help it grow even bigger but I lack the skill I'm afraid. Good luck finding the suitable person for the task, I'll stick around backing you up with moral support =)

Hmmm, we might as well give it a shot now eh', folks?

Name's PanzerJuice, and I certainly am looking forward to the birth of the Foreign Support doctrine one day, and overall the content you guys make is phenomenal. Definitely suggest moving on to CoH2 modding one day!

Does that mean that you will add more than just the 2 new factions?
Maybe new gamemodes or singleplayer levels?

I have had some experience with things like this but I have never had to sign a NDA before so might be interesting. Steam account is Corestealer btw.

My steam name is Oberst Mittens. I have experience testing games before. I helped test world of tanks before its release and have supertested (which is just its balance test for new tanks and features) it before. I also have quite a bit of time on coh and lots of time playing mods, so I would like the chance to help out with the development of a great mod. I have plenty of time to play and test.
