Thread: Why do you hate having a British ally?24 May 2022, 18:16 PM
Lost in the end but was a fun game. Would have been better if there were no brits, but alas it was not to be.
Features a wannabe useful tank called the AVRE and the "massive" impact it had in the game, like 95% of AVRE games.

OKW is definitely not as OP as you claim it to be. Currently the only real big deal with OKW that makes it much stronger in lategame than any other faction is the fact that KT is stock and with a bit of luck, can completely turn the tide in your favour. Even more so if you have the commander and spearhead mode on, since most maps don't care about turret rotation in the teamgame pool. Played against many many OKW players, both in top 10 and above 1000, and only thing that I really consider OP is the KT in their roster. And that's only because of the spearhead mode. If it didn't have the spearhead, then I'd say the KT is in a perfect spot. Great veterancy and great stats for the steep price and 3 tech structures. Spearhead mode should grant accuracy and velocity buff (not Formula 1 kind) for the price of the turret rotation lock.
Don't know where you got the idea that OKW is filled with Ubermenschen because it's not. If it really were as you are saying it is, then OKW would have +20% difference in winrates in teamgames AND 1v1s

I just asked a question if this is exlusive to company, because I play hundreds of different games hence I mentioned my steam library. It's not a brag. So I don't know why you feel "attacked" and act like a snowflake.
Nobody is attacked, just that if you ask a question and then doubt the validity... sure. C&C network part of the engine was probably not written by a dev team in a rush.
If you can play a full skirmish game then you can rule out pretty much everything except the:
1) Router (settings; could be)
2) Modem (unless you have a router/modem combo like me; highly unlikely)
3) Network card (extremely unlikely)
4) Windows settings (eh, unlikely)
5) COH2 settings (likely)
First I would check the router settings: Default Gateway is usually 192.168.0.1 (you write it where you would usually write "https://www.google.com", in the address bar). You can check the address in the command prompt (cmd.exe) with ipconfig.
You can google your password. It's either written somewhere on the router, or in the manual, or on the contract with the ISP. Most likely it's something like Username: user or admin or Admin or Administrator..... you get the jist... and the password is: password or admin or Admin....
You can google for your router. Most routers have default username/password.
Check the settings there. Now I don't know how your router looks like or what it is or what it supports, but you can google 99% of the settings and their meaning. See if anything stands out and add COH2 to the list of exceptions and open the TCP ports: https://support.sega.com/hc/en-us/articles/201555252-Network-Connection-Troubleshooting-
Modem: Can't really check
Network card: Update drivers
Windows settings: Way too big of a topic. Impossible to cover everything and would take me hours of typing. Normally windows autocorrects itself sooner or later if the settings get screwed up. The "Holy Grail" of repairing windows files is into administrator cmd.exe:
1) dism.exe /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth
After you click enter and the process completes:
2) sfc /scannow
COH2 settings: Delete the \Documents\My Games\Company of Heroes 2 folder multiple times if needed.
My opinion: Either firewall or router or antivirus for some reason started blocking COH2, or one of it's files. Only God knows.
You could also check the Event viewer for any warnings/errors. When you get kicked out (Try playing automatch vs AI to not lose ranks or just a custom game), open the Event viewer and see if "Application" or "System" have recorded any event of blocking anything.

The only game? I think so. The online part of the engine is retarded beyond comprehension. For example, I once had a ~0.5 second lag spike in packets (I checked GlassWire afterwards, hence I know how long it lasted). Even though the connection was stable and fast after those 0.5 seconds, COH2 ping increased to 5 seconds for the next 5 minutes. After those 5 minutes, the game froze and I had normal ping once again (<0.5s).
Heck, a couple of times, before changing my router (it was going bad, buggy and unstable, ISP changed it), COH2 would disconnect randomly ingame. The router would stop broadcasting for a second or two before establishing connection again. COH2 didn't care, it just disconnected.
Another thing. "My steam library has...." means sh*t. You are not playing those games, you are playing COH2. Don't assume that because another thing is working fine, that COH2 has to.
That's why it's called TROUBLEshooting. If you can finish a skirmish game, you know that it's not system nor COH2 files. So no matter what you think or how expensive your router/network card is, they could be the culprits.
Finally, you asked for help here, and when somebody proposes something you say "Well DUUUH, my steam library has so many games...." Good for you that you can play so much. Now either troubleshoot on your own, or listen up.
"but how come this issue has suddenlly arisen after almost a thousands hours"
Same as how my COH2 wouldn't start after 400 hours for no good reason. No update, absolutely nothing changed, yet COH2 decided to crash on startup no matter the settings/startup options/reinstalls/clean installs/verifications. It just stopped working. Then a couple of days later, after it has been uninstalled for about 4 days. I install it again, and it worked.

Have you tried playing single player and see if it happens there?.....
I mean, COH2 has no reconnection feature. Meaning that if you COMPLETELY lose connection for one second, you're gone, poof. Reduced to atoms.
COH2 will reconnect if your connection is unstable or extremely slow, but that's it.
If you can play a whole single player 4v4 or something skirmish, then your computer/COH2 file system is OK.
If you only disconnect in online modes, then it's most likely either your network card or router (chances are it's the router).

I have to say, the Live Games tab, being sortable by ranks is a Godsend. To know that if you try to play a game, you'll get a sh*tty match, since 99% of games currently played in 3v3 are of rank 1000+.... priceless.

Yeah you are right. After some discussion this wouldn't be good thing. But another question - what about bringing the observer live games from in-game to web?
I don't see a reason not to have this feature. It already exists in some form, so by bringing it onto the web, you could circumvent the launching of the game, etc.
Thread: Most Intense Hill400 Game. Cumback19 May 2022, 19:15 PM
One of the most intense games I've played.
Basically MM over 9000.
Your 1000 rank allies get paired in lanes against top100 players, while I got paired up against a rank 600 player.
They are losing their lanes; hard. So you have to be extra motivated to win and push back the lower ranked player, to somewhat mitigate the losses on other fronts.
What this means is, you really have to prove that you are the rank you are. Some people would just straight up leave at the start of the game and call "gg" (happened 3 games ago, in my favour). So you really really have to try the hardest to win and not get bothered by the ranks. Chances are not in your favour, with such matchmaking and map-player distribution (where high ranks play in VP lanes against lower ranks), but who knows.
Also features the most perfect of most perfect mines.
Thread: Matchmaking! It's over 9000!17 May 2022, 19:11 PM
Well, let me just sit on my fuel, uncontested and watch the fireworks. It's very nice.
Man the toxicity in the chat from the soviet player. Offff. "I have the best stats, you all noobs!".... ohhhh, the endgame stats.... ohhhhhh.
Well, a good game. Shame the matchmaker was shi*ty

KT sure is a tough nut to crack, but its ''balanced'' with its slow speed and turret rotation.
Most 3v3+ maps and some 2v2 maps would like a word with you.
