"RAISE THE BANNERS, MY KINSMEN. FOR YOUR ALPHA HAS ARRIVED, AND WE HAVE WON!" ~ Alfred
Yessir, it's out. Oh yes, that means you can download it. Right now. What're you waiting for, a cup of tea? (I could kind of go for one, actually.)
It has been a rather long and tiresome eight months and change for me. But at this point I can safely say that it has been worth every moment. Every painful mistake overcome, every lesson learned and every tiny little change to numbers and values have finally amounted to something for everyone on here.
I would like to point out to all those who seem to believe or think that I do not intend to continue and I will let this mod die.
You're all so very, very wrong!
I have no intention of letting this modification die. In my eyes, I have watched it grow, fester with wounds and lay idle for years. And that time is over, my friends.
With this release comes a multitude of changes.
The Red Tide returns!
Having moved to the Steam version, the forces of the Soviet Union were once halted by the blockade that was Steam, and it's newly formed wall.
Experience combat like you've never seen before within Company of Heroes!
Not only are squad sizes, weaponry composition and divisional compositions historically correct; but for the first time in our modification's history weaponry has now been realistically calibrated to emulate their real life counterparts!
Feel the punch that Rifles historically packed on the battlefield, feel the pure fear of an enemy Machine Gun and be weary of what is around every corner.
Enhanced Reinforcement, Cost and Upkeep:
With charts that reflect historical accuracy; feel the difference in how you play based upon your armies cost, upkeep and replacement costs. No longer does the Soviet player feel like another faction amongst the crowd. Unleash the sheer numbers and manpower that the Soviet Union has to offer, and overwhelm the enemy!
Feel what it's like to rely on elite infantry, ensuring that you keep your men alive as one of the many Elite formations that this modification has to offer, ranging from the 1st SS to the 101st Airbourne; strategy is the key to keeping your men alive!
Realistic Experience System:
No longer will you be hindered by the enemies experience in ways that make no sense. Gone are the ways of old, in which Experience can determine the outcome of a battle simply because it magically boosts your units hitpoints or modifies the enemies chance to hit their target.
This has been replaced with practical Experience, which seeks to emulate what combatants would actually gain from their experiences on the front in combat. Reload times, accuracy and partial mitigation of suppression will allow your green recruits to evolve into effective combatants, regardless of their original state.
In the future, players will be met with continued updating of content including rebalancing, refining of mechanics and most wanted; NEW TOYS TO PLAY WITH!
Updating Older Content:
New Maps and,
The Kitchen Sink. Because why not? (Nah, I'm just kidding. Planes, updated planes.)
All in all, this release is the first step on a very fruitful road for all of you. So put on your uniforms, sit down to your armchairs and Command your forces at your leisure!
Right heres what you have been waiting for.
Parts 1 - 5 .rar
There is always more to come!
I was confused at first when I saw the first picture (the cat in the Lannister armor) because I'm also following this GoT mod for Mount&Blade. I thought I clicked on the wrong update. LMAO. Anyway, thank you so much for releasing this! Hallelujah!

"You get new Steam achievement: A cup of tea."
My coffee exploded in my face when I saw this new release. =)
The torrent here doesn't seem to work.
I'm not getting it to work as well
Seems isohunt have shut down my account i made for this torrent, ive contacted them and will try ang get it back online asap. Thanks for your patience.
That sounds amazing. Great work!
i cant get the steam version to work i put in the string in the launch settings and it just refuses to open im actually kinda depressed right now. been waiting for this for seemingly ever
Sure you added -dev to the end of it? A pretty common mistake.

same thing, and i have everything set up properly, first mod this happens.
somebody can help me? please...I'm french
We cant help with your nationality. You shall retreat before help comes to you.
help me for install this mod of course...
TORRENT SHOULD BE WORKING
Added more trackers and direct download, please download and seed! <3
Can't join multiplayer games with my friend, anyone else having this issue?
Remove the Company of Heroes Relaunch folder from My documents/My games
It should work then. Just in case, don't remove the folder, just move it to a backup folder.
why can't i download the files? first they can be downloaded till 30% to even 99%, then there's no speed at all. finally it's the warning message "download task failed". what's wrong with the files?
There is literally nothing wrong with the files. It's moddb and it's servers in regards to your computer. Please stop blindly assuming that everything is the mods fault. :l
I seem to have some crashes. Also, the Su-100 seems to be shooting a bit fast. Faster than a T-34 even.
it seems no one cares to answer my question, so i have to ask it again. what's wrong with the files? i tried to download both the 5 part version and the full repack, but they all ended up in "download task failed", even though the progress could go to as high as 99%. so please tell me how the hell i can get the files to my harddisk, thanks a lot.

I already answered your question. There is NOTHING wrong on the files end. If it is any issue, it is a SERVER issue.

So i torrented the mod dragged into correct folder installed it all correctly and it crashes half way through loading a skirm and the error mes i got originally was missing whatever file re installed the mod got make sure TEMP folder has space and now i cant make the mod run help? maybe? please?
I have to agree, the infantry dies very fast in this version, too fast for my taste. The vanilla zoom contributes to that. Your inf. starts to die because the range of vision of most units is higher than the players view screen. by the time you are able to identify the thread your whole squad is already dead. Thats game breaking. Apart from that, the game plays allot faster than the previous versions because tanks don't cost manpower anymore. Considering the allied material superiority thats a good thing but playing the germans who couln't easily replace there tanks losses it just feels wrong and not historically correct. Tanks now also simply waste the infantry, even the at-squads. those are almost useless now when not in an ambush position. so good luck taking those out when you're hard pressed and out of fuel.
With that said, I'm going back to playing Normandy 2.1 if i can find it, or even blitzkrieg (the dead seem to live quite long these days :D )
To quote the current main developer:
"It's WIP. This was for testing, not balancing or playing."
More or less: the fact that you managed to play a few games means it was a success (downloaded & got in-game properly with no/ few crashes).
why do u keep ignoring that sometimes game crashes on skirmish loading screen?
hope this works
