Just an update that this die hard CoH 2 fan is now well over 10,000 hours played and put in 130 hours the last two weeks. That is over a solid year. I don't know whether to envy or pity this person. I think I'm leaning towards envy. I only wish I had a fraction of that gaming time. I've also never put even close to that kind of time and dedication into any game. I think my most hours played is Skyrim with around 150 or so.

I think I've played maybe 50 hours of this game. Loved it but there's no way in hell I'd play anyone these days. Anyone still playing probably has a few thousand hours on me. I think I just barely got out of the "I'll build one of everything" phase.

Crazy! I think I am at 400+ hours with this game. To each their own.

I tried AA, and gave up on it, because it's got so much skirmish in it. I hate skirmish in that game.

On the plus side, my collection of Steam games far exceeds that guy. And most likely it's impossible to play 70 hours/week and have a demanding job or anything approximating a life, though maybe he's on vacation?

Maybe he just leaves it idling when he's not playing.

I just got the British armies pack and I'll probably be trying it out tonight. If anyone is up for some comp stomps, let me know. (We could try multiplayer too but I'm pretty bad.)

word up

A heads up for anybody that wanted this game but thought (fairly) that it was too expensive to get all of it.

You can get all of CoH, and all of CoH2 up through Ardennes Assault and some addon stuff past it for $10 right now on Humble Bundle.

That's... a lot of game for $10. So much. And Ardennes Assault really is great.

If people do pick it up, I'd love to do some comp stomps. Let me know!

Suddenly got interested in CoH2 recently and noticed all the DLC was on massive sale today. Anyone interested in some co-op campaigns or comp stomps?

Fair warning, I'm super rusty.

Anyone still playing this? I got a new rig and wanted to revisit COH2 but had trouble finding an online match.

I could be persuaded, but I'm rusty as hell. Up for a comp stomp?

Yeah - let's try this weekend. Should be around Saturday AM Pacific Time.

Jumped back into this the last couple of nights and am surprised at how many people are still playing this. Per their match-making, around 2000-4000 people most nights. I have to wait about two minutes for a match which is better than I thought.

I'm still terrible. I'm not embarrassing; I could hold my own but still can't recall all of the best counters and typically have a terrible time managing heavy armor.

Yeah the people still playing this are killers.

It's a decent size community of players though. Not huge, but everyone that's left generally loves the game and tend to be pretty focused on it.

I still think CoH and CoH 2 have a feel that no other RTS game has matched.

If anyone wants to play some over memorial day weekend I'd be game to fire it back up and sink a few hours into comp stomps.

Completely agree - both killer players and that this game feels like nothing else.

Still my fav RtS games to date.

I'm down. I love the game...been meaning to get back to it. I'm bad, but I'm always up for comp stomps.
