Company of Heroes 2 - From who? Ze Germans?

Damn the keys must had a time period for them. I got one when i saw the post but when i got home from work to use it i had a message stating it was already in use by another steam account.

Ok, so is anyone getting the digital deluxe? Are those extra things worth $40? No idea what the command pass is so I'm tempted to just grab the standard edition as Steam is trying to sell me the digital deluxe for $129.95 which I think is a bit on the pricey side.

Thanks for the post I managed to get one of the keys and it worked.

I just got an e-mail from GMG with my beta key since I pre-ordered from them awhile ago.

Sweet, just got mine too. Will have to do a logmein remote install. Does anyone know if it is multiplayer only or can you play around with the AI?

Company of Heroes makes you realize how much competing RTS games lack atmosphere. You feel like a general managing an army, not a chessboard.

I'm in need of a big brother. I have no idea what's going on, and how to even remotely play this game effectively. I'm a Dawn of War 2 guy, so I get concepts, but that's about it.

I've been playing way too much Dota 2 lately; I've no idea how to micro-manage things in a proper RTS anymore. Got to spend some time with this one and get the hang of it. I need to double check and make sure I'm not playing in windowed mode, but I don't have any edge scrolling at the moment, which is rather annoying.

It's driving me nuts every time I see the thread. It is 'From whom?'

Now back to our regular programming.

Does the beta have the singleplayer campaign, or is it multiplayer only?

(I'm one of the weirdos that only plays RTSes for the campaigns. I'm just no good at them competitively.)

Multiplayer vs computer or online opponents.

Yeah, but it's an uneducated Russian peasant conscript who's talking there.

Not a German, who would have perfect grammar and diction.

Thanks -- guess I'll wait for opening day, see if the campaign is good, and how long it is. If it's like the DOW2 campaign, probably not going to pick it up.

Well actually it was from my memory of this...

And I was off on that too, but now I'm not changing it. Because.

I played something to the tune of over 300 hours of the first CoH and still kind of felt lost when I started in on this one. Any particular time you'd want to play and try to figure some things out?

Best guess: 7pm this evening?

I'll hop on around 7 then.

I'm pretty confident it will have a fully fleshed out campaign. The original had a ton of campaign content that I found much more engaging then any of the DoW stuff. I loved how you would start out in a pristine town that would be pretty much demolished by the end of the battle.

So is the beta pretty decently polished at this point? Or should I wait till release date?

ThinJ and I are playing if people want to learn/comp stomp with us.

FYI, GMG is offering CoH 2 pre-order for 25% off with the code: GMG25-S0FSG-R7Z9B

making it $44.99. Techbargains says the code "expires soon"

It's steamworks, so you're just buying the code and plugging it into steam.

I want muchly to talk about this in a more public way. Hopefully they kill the NDA soonish.

If you want one, but don't get one, send me a PM. I have two that I won't be using.

Done thanks in advance if you pick me
