Ladies and Gentlemen, it is my pleasure to introduce the latest rejuvenating modification for Company of Heroes; Elite Mod. For those of you who haven't followed the design process over the last three months, Elite Mod is the culmination of work between Tommy and Kolaris, alongside help from Kiraye and Khorney and input from the entire competitive CoH community to create the ultimate version of CoH.
Elite Mod set out to achieve three key objectives:
- To bring the game to the most precise point of balance yet
- To fix any and all lingering bugs and exploits
- To add tactical options and enhance depth by making previously unattractive options more useful, and dialing back 'overpowered' units and tactics
I am proud to say that although there may yet be a few outstanding issues to resolve in the future, the mod has met these aims completely.
Of course, the ultimate test to see just how these changes affect the game in real terms is to watch the very best players duke it out in classic 1v1 fashion. To this end, The Frontline Network will be hosting the first Elite Mod 1v1 tournament on the 1-2 February with a livecast of the semi-finals and grand finale at 7pm GMT on Sunday February 2nd.
Elite Mod 1v1 Tournament
64-slot Single Elimination, $200 prize pool
No invites and no reserves- be there or be square! Sign ups will then close the following Friday 24th at 5pm GMT, and the seeds will be published shortly afterwards with more details about the TFN broadcast show.
daspoulos: Sick servers, and coding Today, 04:03 AM
daspoulos: failure game, reinstalled twice. Still disconnect. Today, 04:02 AM
braciszek: Dat Forge supply base giving resources to allies strat. Today, 03:31 AM
Sierra: I mean, my entire strat revolved around Massing Vultures, ODST's, and abusing the max level MAC. Because that thing would drop a Scarab like nobodies business. Today, 03:01 AM
Sierra: I dunno Halo Wars revolved around spam and gimmicky abilities and units (not unlike CoH2 lolz). I loved Age of Mythology, but Ensemble + Halo just wasn't a good matchup. Today, 03:00 AM
Jaedrik: Halo Wars WAS a good RTS. Except that the endgame was always Scorpions (no Grizzlies, they sucked) Wolverines mass Vampires. Infantry didn't matter at all, partially because of the canister glitch. Today, 02:56 AM
