Is there ANYONE with the authority to answer this question?
Is there any Official - straight - simple answer to that?

We all see the road map of CoH2 and I wonder how much do we have to beg Relic to give us some answers about the ORIGINAL game.

Intentionally didn't mention about future updates or bug fixes or something because I don't want this to transform to a debate about what it needs to be done or not. I just ask about what they have in THEIR minds.

no future vause when coh1 would be perfect with only a few fixes nobody would play coh2 anymore

It depends on what you mean by "future". People will play it as long as the servers stay up, but it won't grow, and there won't be a proper competitive scene.

I guess by saying it will not grow you mean if Relic continues to pay no attention to it? Right? Relic knows very well that paying attention to it might take people from CoH2 or releasing a new version of it HD(not referring to graphics) or something like that, some people will come back. I guess they focus on CoH2 now...but it wouldn't be any CoH2 if the original was not that good. When I say Future I mean what is going on with smoking gun, the game is as it is and that's it?

Pretty much, there's no incentive for players to come back to CoH1 when Relic obviously just wants to push the sequel for more dlc/expansions and such. New players will be more attracted to the newer and prettier campaign of coh2 rather than try out coh1 multiplayer.

In any case I think they should be releasing it for free if they are not going to at least fix the rank system up. Still charging for a game that has been gimped rather than improved sounds a bit wrong to me.

They could of course just shut it down but releasing it for free might get some new players into coh2 via that route.

Well it's been practically free in humble bundles a few times. That's probably why it still has a decent player base (plus a small group of hardcore fans of course).

I think you're being overly optimistic if you expect any support from Relic beyond keeping the servers up for CoH 1 from now on. They've given no indication of providing anything else for years plus they have a lot of CoH 2 stuff they are working on.

However, if you enjoy the game, keep playing it and it's future is that you will continue to enjoy it :)

Yes vCOH is dead sadly. You can still get some 1v1's but 2v2AT is non existent now.

1v1 is pretty dead too.. only vs noobs and then occasionally vs LuckyStilet lol

well, only thing which is still working is 2v2random (although there's some other issues here) and arranging games with friends in basic match.

coh is still great, but there's no competitive scene left.

We moved on: to the likes of LoL, CSGO, Dota ...

Where we can silence our hunger for competitiveness a lot better than in COH2.

I play all the time. I never wait more than 5 minutes for a game. Don't get all the moaning that these threads spark. The game is almost 10 years old. I paid $10 for it. Best investment of my life if we're talking about ROI. 1000s of hours of mostly fun.

Am I pro? No. But neither are most people. You can get very competitive games in the old relic server 10-15 level range.

At lev 16+, yes it true, there's not many pros playing. If you need that to make your life seem worthy, sorry, look elsewhere. But I don't understand the idea that you need to be stomped by pro so you can say game is alive.

Just in past 7 days I played Complexity, Koda, Lucky Stillet, Mojo, Rilakuma. Plenty of fun, high quality games, lost some, won some. Yes you do meet an occasional idiot who builds only snipers, but that was around in the peak as well (can anyone say Barton). And, many times you get mismatched against total noob, but so be it. sometimes there are only 30 players on at times I play.

In over 1000 games on new server, I think I had technical problems with about 5. A few ghost games and a couple where it does that thing where it lags and then speeds up to catch up. Big deal. Really.

Stop posting and start playing : ) really it's a miracle the game is still there to play.

As soon as the Money stopped rolling for Relic on this one is when the game officially died. Coh 1 didn't have enough 'DLC' support.
