i quit playing coh2 about 8 months ago. i was just wondering if the march 28th patch is supposed to be good enough to come back to coh2.
are there still spinning tanks ?
is there still 1 sec lag from commands ?
are there still major OP/UP units ?
your thoughts please.
i really miss playing a fun RTS, and there have been zero released in the last year. I was putting all my hopes in DOW3, but after playing the beta i think i will pass on it.
Was in a similar boat and just started playing again like a month ago.
Wher, and soviets are pretty great right now, lots of different ways to win with them
Brits are pretty good too, they have some blatently underpriced late game units, but it doesn't really hurt the game for me too much
USF is also in a good spot i think, not a great deal of commander variety and mabye the scot is kinda weak but other than that they are doing well lots of units seen used and made effective
OKW is weirder than ever and i have no idea if they are ever going to reconcile them like the soviet tweaks but i'm still having fun trying to figure it out. "They are the faction without a soul"
Community may be a little salty but honestly the game is still improving
Well, new patch hits on March 28th but changes have been tested by the community (community balance patch) for several months now. Check out AECoH on youtube to watch some of the King of the Hill games played using the CBP.
The game is definitely headed in a good direction but it's just taking time. Last big balance patch was in June 2016 so maybe in another 6-9 months we'll see a balance patch after this March patch but I see no reason why Relic would ditch the CBP idea and do balance things on their own/not do any more balance changes.
All in all, I'd say keep updated, you can play the CBP right now before the patch hits but the limited "scope" of the balance patch really only addressed infantry scaling and light vehicles, so early-mid game should be better to play, and there are a lot of bugs that have been eliminated (some aren't even on the patch notes as they are easy to abuse, so even mentioning them could lead to abuse in the last week or so that you can abuse them).
I hope this helps!
