Okay now I have to add my two cents:
First of all I found it a bit disturbing, that the Community Manager just responses to an irrelevant post instead of answering the main question: Does CoH1 have a future?
Second: I loved to play this game with my friends in Lobby, but this joy was taken till the move to Steam! Lobby-Levels (if other players here want to argue about playing Lobby or Compstomp pls don't try it I won't answer on any insults on this!) were a competition for us and we battled each other in order to reach the highest level! Alongside with the fun the pure playing brought to us the Levels were a motivation to keep us playing the game!
The conclusion is: If the Lobby would work entirely (Levels Statistics etc.) this would already attract a bunch of players and would help to let the franchise grow! Automatch should work also thats for sure. When both of your games would work in a proper way, the community and the competetive gaming scene would be much more attracted to the franchise and the fanbase would grow rapidely!
I think this is a chance you should not miss!!
FichtenMoped over and out!
My friend, as you see everyone in this post is not trying to insult anyone. I count to the good manners of everyone to keep this at the same level!
I've send a PM to Noun(days before) if he had any news or something to state about this(future of CoH, HD version ,any new update)and he didn't answer as well.
I totally agree with you, CoH should be like it was before the transition to Steam,infact
the reason I start this was because they had promised this in the first place...
Statistics and levels is also something Vital for this game and is something that most of people taking very seriously and I can't blame them.
If we grow in numbers asking the same thing (and we are ready to pay for this update),they might think about it.
I say to pay because some profit out of it might change their minds.
A poll might be also very helpful for this.
[The question is simple are you willing to pay for further updates of CoH?]
If we reach 3000-4000 I don't know.. then this might change the picture.
