Double Deuce -> Awfully quiet here? (8/19/2012 5:04:36 PM)

I've been thinking about getting this game for the last week or so but have noticed there does not seem to be much forum activity. Am I looking in the wrong place, i.e. is there another, official forum I am not aware of where all the game discussion is? Do most people just play vs the AI rather than live? Are there any extra map or scenarios posted somewhere, not seeing but 1-2 here.




junk2drive -> RE: Awfully quiet here? (8/19/2012 5:24:12 PM)

We have a tourney over at wargamer that is almost finished. There is an opponent finder forum at Slitherine. There is also a facebook group for both the board game and PC game. Those of us that installed the 1.6 beta patch cannot MP through the lobby. We are waiting for that to be resolved.

I think the lack of PBEM turned off some people but the game really cannot be played that way.




Blond_Knight -> RE: Awfully quiet here? (8/19/2012 8:30:57 PM)

I have to agree, Ive been wanting to buy this but it seems almost like a complete lack of forum activity. I see that the developer is building beta patches so clearly theyre working on it. But I always gauge how good a game is here by the amount of forum posts. And it doesnt look like theres been alot of activity here in the last few months.
Few maps, few scenarios created, it just doesnt look good.




Double Deuce -> RE: Awfully quiet here? (8/20/2012 11:00:52 AM)

I'll probably be mostly playing vs the AI with this one and trying to run a tournament or 2 (more of a meta campaign than tournament really) but the lack of forum activity is a concern for me.




Jamm -> RE: Awfully quiet here? (8/20/2012 1:56:54 PM)

Running a tourney is a good idea as the tournament run by the Wargamer got a good response.
It got a lot of players online.




Fascist Dog -> RE: Awfully quiet here? (8/24/2012 3:44:39 AM)

There are a few of us who don't post regularly but still check in from time to time to see what's going on with patches/updates and stuff. I'm very happy to see that some of you guys have started converting ASL scenarios for this game. I'll be very interested in playing some of those. I also plan to spend some time working with this editor myself. However, I am very, very busy working on something else just now so it might be early next year before I can really give this game some attention.




Double Deuce -> RE: Awfully quiet here? (8/24/2012 8:13:36 AM)

The one I am working on now, almost finished except for a little tweaking, is only 4 turns long. I hope to have it finished up and posted here in the next few days for outside testing. Its a city fight with everyone crowded into a few city blocks. Lots of casualties in a very short time. [:D]




vonRocko -> RE: Awfully quiet here? (8/24/2012 2:14:52 PM)

IMHO this game needs some sort of campaign.




whako -> RE: Awfully quiet here? (8/25/2012 2:12:36 AM)

Couldnt agree more. A campaign would be alot of fun.




Ratzki -> RE: Awfully quiet here? (8/25/2012 4:08:37 AM)

Do you think that a campaign with head2head play would be possible given how the game deals with 2 player games? Would something that is players vs AI be interesting enough for players?




Double Deuce -> RE: Awfully quiet here? (8/25/2012 7:18:36 AM)

Probably not with H2H play but I can see it being interesting for players vs the AI. I know I would like to see it and would be willing to design a few small ones.




Jamm -> RE: Awfully quiet here? (8/26/2012 1:27:52 PM)

Those linked firefights I designed are meant to be played head 2 head.
1 big map. 2 small firefights are played and the final scores, and surviving units are noted.
In the final battle, the surviving units from the first 2 fights are purchased as the point buy during the setup phase.
The more units which survive the first 2 fights, the more you have for the finale.
Makes unit survival important.
Total campaign winner is determined by adding scores from the 3 matches.

Junk and I played the first, but he's playing 1.6 now and we can't continue at present.

I've got some ideas for the same type of thing vs. the AI.
I'll try to flesh them out.

I used to run Player vs AI multiplayer campaigns using Steel Panthers and it worked really well but with this engine it would be more work. You could presumably generate a new scenario for each player by creating maps and dropping the units in place in a few hours but adding in the the AI orders to make them follow an enemy plan might take considerably longer.

What sorts of features would you'all like to see in a campaign mode for COH?

I'd like to see a feature capable of tracking casualties and victory pts over multiple battles.

It would be really sweet to have triggers to open up the next battle of a campaign.
Say capture a certain victory point/points or reach a certain threshold of casualties and the next part of the map opens up and reinforcements brought in for the next firefight.
Probably a lot of work, but you did ask,...[;)]

The ability for surviving units to be automatically carried over into the next scenario.

I'd like to see the full boardgame trasposition before anything else, also I want to play MP with the last beta patch.
At the moment the game is incompleted.

I can agree with that. I would like to see all the currently available CoH boardgame units along with the weapon cards added into the base game and then concentrate on the module type addons. After the patch is finalized though.

+1




junk2drive -> RE: Awfully quiet here? (9/2/2012 8:02:26 PM)

Nice thing about a board game is that you can make your own rules and counters. I understand the pay for content model with PC games but think that there should be a few more 1941-42 units added for free to this game.

Then I can look forward to USA and USMC games.




Gerry -> RE: Awfully quiet here? (9/2/2012 9:24:56 PM)

J2D:

Was it you that had the problem with CAPs or cards? Wondering what you think now of this feature after playing some more?

Thanks,

Gerry




junk2drive -> RE: Awfully quiet here? (9/2/2012 9:45:43 PM)

I don't have a problem with them, it is just not something that I am use to in video games. I'm more of a shootem up guy than a number cruncher.

The CAP managing is like accounting to me but no different than watching ammo counts in other games I suppose.

The cards are random. When I first played in the tourney, I could see the cards being played against me. When we switched sides, I expected to get the exact same cards, but I did not.




Auchinleck -> RE: Awfully quiet here? (9/5/2012 8:08:11 AM)

A campaign that spans from 1941 to 1945. Reflecting updated equipment. Or the ability to upgrade equipment. But just to keep it from getting out of hand, only 4 or 5 scenarios for each year of the campaign thru 1945.




hugi -> RE: Awfully quiet here? (9/5/2012 12:54:35 PM)

Nice would be a free 4k (or maybe 8k) monitor for each CoH customer.
So we can play without a "3 pixel problem when zooming out ..." [:D]

So far: I love the game! Waiting for next patch!




balcazrvam -> RE: Awfully quiet here? (9/5/2012 1:05:36 PM)

But just to keep it from getting out of hand
