This certainly does not bode well.

Someone has made the call based on financials to pull all resources away from COH2 and put them into their moneyshot, AOE4.

I wouldn't put it past Relic to just abandon COH2 now even though the community is doing almost everything for them now.

Just remember, COH1 is still stuck on the broken mess that is 1.71.

Maybe that was the reason why the mini-patch hit right in between tournament week ends.

Is someone of the balance team allowed (assuming they even know) to talk about if or how CoH2 updates will be delivered from now onwards?

I think we can be happy that although CoH2 balance is not perfect, at least all factions are more or less playable with good fun. Thanks to the balance team and to Andy for that.

Maybe this is a sign of restructuring and the start of a fresh CoH2 team? Relic know the game still makes money so don't abandoned us.

Look at the player counts on steam, SEGA know CoH2 community sticks around unlike warhammer titles (even more recent total war numbers are a fraction of CoH). And a bigger playerbase means more money.

Not just in numbers player wise, but CoH regularly blows TW out the water on twitch numbers every time a major tourney gets released (credit to AE and stormless for that). That's great brand advertising for SEGA. This theory of continued support seems to be backed up by Andy's support of the tourney patch. Relic want competitive coh to continue.

I truly hope Relic aren't stupid enough to abandon COH2, its an absolute gem of a game now.

I may have been a little harsh, comparing COH1 1.71 to the current state is unfair.

Right now, the game is actually balanced extremely well and it wouldn't be the end of the world if we never got another patch.

I still just can't fathom the intelligence of a company that decides to never change the decimal place of one unit which basically left the game unplayable. Consider how many sales of COH1 which have undoubtedly occurred over that time and it makes Relic look lazy and incompetent.
