It's always interesting to post poll threads that help us figure out who our customers are. So, both those of us who developed COH and some of you on the forum may find the results of this poll thread interesting.

Please choose the statement that best described why you have purchased computer-COH. (Note use of past tense, not future tense or subjunctive mood.)

How about based on WCS's previous titles?

Yeah...What tgb said. You are too modest. A couple of the choices could apply but WCS/Matrix were the clincher for this electronic platoon leader.
thank you and cheers

Dang! Did I of all people forget to subtly include that? Thanks for the correction.

Frankly, Gil, based on the feedback I would have gotten it anyway, but I really did buy it sight unseen (never played the board game) based on CoG and FoF.

I voted for choice 2 "I've heard good things about the boardgame, but prefer computer games"

I would play board games more, but with a loaded work schedule and a group of wargamer friends that can be equally busy it's hard to get everyone together for a game. Boardgames ported to PC can scratch that itch if well done, you get the computer doing all the computations and rule enforcement plus you can do an online game in the lobby when its convienent to you

looking for shortish tactical games that you can play on line. I have enjoyed the game. Never played the board game but eastern front will always get my attention :-)

Want persistant campaigns, on line play, short tactical games. Steel Panthers was as close as I ve got

I've actually never heard of the boardgame and am not sure I'll care much for the computer version, but the reviews seem good, and most important, I buy almost every Russian Front game to encourage devs to publish them, so I bought this one over the weekend.

As mentioned in a different thread, this looks like a game that I'd be more likely to play on my iPad.

Also, next time you might want to add another choice to your poll: "I sm particularly interested in this theater of operations, etc." I did not buy this because it is WWII (Normandy, ho-hum) or because it is squad-level (modern combat, ho-hum).

I voted for number 4, squad battles, but really I bought it for several reasons. Number one is the 3D. I see a lot of posts from board gamers decrying the 3D aspect but that doesn't mean that everyone is a 2D gamer. I would not have bought this if it was just flat maps and counters.

I have heard great things about the board game and wanted to give this a try. I may still buy the board game as I collect them.

Strange - guess I'm the first to post for reason #1. Bought the board game when it first came out in 2008 and also own SoS. Great game system, great design, but as JFalk68 posted, arranging f-t-f and finding the time is a real challenge. I am enjoying this computer version immensely as the scenarios are quick to play and I am learning many tactics which are honing my f-t-f skills due to frequency of play. This is a great port of a classic BG title. You guys really did a great job with this!

How about the poll choice

  • None of the Above



    I suppose the choice

  • If I hear a computer game -- of any sort -- is good I'll buy it.

    comes closest, but not really. I hear about many "good" computer games, but I don't buy them "of any sort". I'm quite picky, in fact, and COH is my first war game purchase in the past year (the last one before COH being the entire Scourge of War series).

    I purchased COH (and the GD expansion, both in the Matrix Holiday Sale) due mainly to the following:

    quote:

    ORIGINAL: junk2drive

    COH you move like checkers, think like chess, roll dice and play a card. Nothing like Steel Panthers.

    This had me intrigued. Despite my near utter lack of interest in East Front games, COH's game play sounded innovative (in a retro sort of way) ... so, on a hunch and a whim, I bought it.

    Having now played through through the tutorials and the first Firefight scenario, I must say: so far, so good. COH is, for me, a refreshing "new" take on computer war games. So far, to my surprise, I am enjoying myself immensely. Good job, folks!
