Patch du 19 décembre 2017


The December Update comes with a multitude of changes from commanders and core faction balance to new maps and map balance changes. As stated in the December Update blog post, none of these changes would have been possible without the dedication, commitment and support of COH2's core community. This might be a Relic post and Relic might be releasing the update, but make no mistake, today's patch is by the community, from the community, and for the community.

Due to the magnitude of the changes and content included with today's update, the patch notes have been split into three parts. For a detailed overview of all the Commander Changes in today's update, please check out the post Commander Revamp - Final in the December Commander Revamp Changelog thread. For all information regarding the new maps and map balance changes, please go to December Update - Map Revamp Preview thread. For all other changes including new content and core faction changes, please read the notes below.


  • Five new "Art of War" faceplates (one for each faction) curated from the Steam Workshop are now available in the in-game store. Faceplates created by community member RitaRush and 40% of all proceeds go back to the community.
  • Five new "King of the Hill" faceplates (one for each faction) curated from the Steam Workshop. Created by community member RitaRush, 40% of all proceeds from the sale of these faceplates goes towards supporting Stormless' King of the Hill tournaments.
  • Grand Championships Decal - To be gifted to backers of the GCS Kickstarter campaign
  • Grand Championships Faceplate - To be gifted to backers of the GCS Kickstarter campaign
  • 4 New 2v2 Maps - See the December Update - Map Revamp Preview thread for more info


Balance Update Goals

  • Tune select underused / undervalued commanders to increase and diversify the number of viable strategies available in automatch
  • Tone down the effectiveness of some the Axis’ elite, heavy tanks to make them less dominant in team games
  • Tone down the squad wiping effectiveness of some over performing, off-map abilities
  • Adjustments to meta dominating units and strategies to improve strategic / competitive diversity
  • Improve strategic diversity and quality of life by making adjustments to redundant, underused and generalist units

Primary Focus

  • Revitalizing 2 – 3 underused commanders for each faction
  • Adjustments to meta dominating units in competitive play

Adjustments to select heavy tanks that are currently over performing in team games

  • Elefant
  • Jagdtiger
  • OKW Panther V

Secondary Focus

Adjustments to vet 4 and 5 of select OKW units that trade too cost effectively at higher veterancy

Adjustments to OKW and UKF Forward Retreat Points to create a trade-off and become an interesting choice for the player rather than a guaranteed decision (primarily affects team games)

Adjustments to select Off-map abilities to reduce the effectiveness of frustrating, one-click squad wipes

General improvements to help with quality of life and strategic diversity


Model 24 Stun Grenades (Elite Troops/Sturmpioneer Grenade)
We are fixing several issues with the German Stun Grenades while maintaining their current functionality.

  • Stunned squad members are unable to move for the duration of the 5 second stun.
  • Fixed an issue where stun nades would permanently break team weapons (this affects both OKW stun nades and OST stun nades)

Target Weak Point/Treadshot
These abilities have been modified to allow the user to fire on the move. Previously vehicles would need to halt and could lose track of their target when firing these abilities.

  • Target Weak Point now lasts for 10 seconds or until the unit fires its first shot while under this ability. Activating the * ability forces the unit to reload before being able to fire
  • The similar-to-operate AEC treadshot ability behaves in a similar way (2 shots within 15 seconds)

Trenches (All variants)
* All trenches revert to neutral control when they are no longer garrisoned
* Can only be built in friendly, secured territory
* Target size from 2 to 20 when neutral (to allow AT guns and tanks to clear them from the battlefield)

Blitzkrieg/Overdrive/War Speed/Step On It
* These movement boost abilities will now cease when the vehicle receives an engine critical.

Forward Retreat Points
Forward Retreat Point timings are being adjusted to arrive in the mid to late game for all factions; reinforcement time has also been adjusted to reduce the power of forward positions.

  • UKF FRP requires Company Command Post; affects both Forward Assembly and Vanguard Logistics Glider
  • OKW FRP requires either a Mechanized or Schwerer Panzer Headquarters established.
  • OKW Battlegroup unable to reinforce if cut-off from friendly territory.
  • Reinforcement time increased by 75% while FRP ability is active
  • 2 minute cooldown when FRP ability is deactivated

* All sandbags standardized to 240 health and 35 armor.
* Wehrmacht sandbags build-time from 60 to 45

Repair Speeds
Western Front Armies' repair speeds are being brought in line with the Eastern Front armies.
USF Rear Echelon & British Royal Engineers:

  • Repair Speed reduced from 2 to 1.6
  • Veterancy 2 repair bonus from 1 to 0.5
  • Heavy Sapper upgrade repair bonus from 2 to 0.525

  • Repair speed from 3 to 2

  • Veterancy 2 repair speed reduced from 1 to 0.75
  • Minesweeper upgrade repair bonus from +1 to +25%

Squad Behaviour
A squad AI behaviour has been added where individual models in squads assume varying postures while fighting the enemy (without changing their position) - i.e. Elite squads will prefer a crouching animation for some of their members, whereas non-elite squads will also drop prone to the ground.

  • Fixed a disparity where low-member squads also suffered from the most densely-packed formations (making them even more vulnerable to AoE weapons)
  • Assists each squad in their role (e.g., the new reinforced wedge formation will make paratrooper squads always have their thompsons at the front line) - Make each squad feel more unique
  • Squad formations are now, once again, more fluid while the squad is moving. In addition to improving immersion, this will also help the individual squads spread out better to make a better use of their formations.
  • Allied squads once again, assign support weapons -such as bazookaks- to flanks rather than the core of the formation

Smoke Barrages
Activating smoke barrages will now only order one unit at a time. Previously if multiple mortars were selected, all units would fire smoke at the target position

Fuel and Munition Caches
* Manpower cost from 200 to 250

**Garrisoning **
The lack of delay entering and leaving garrisons made indirect-fire and grenades difficult to perform their anti-garrison role as squads could quickly jump in and out of buildings to dodge these attacks. We found This was particularly problematic for non-EFA factions who lacked flamethrowers on their engineer units.

  • Load time for buildings increased to 0.75 per model
  • Max load time increased to 2 for the entire squad
  • Unload time for buildings increased to 0.375 per model
  • Grenade damage adjusted against ambient structures

Demo Charges
Demo charges have been modified to be more focused on being used to demolish obstacles rather than as high explosive anti-personnel devices meant to wipe out squads in the open.

  • Demo charges now detectable by all units at a 13 range radius
  • Can no longer be planted near capture points
  • Cost reduced from 90MU to 65MU

Hold Fire
We are changing the hold fire button for all units in the game for consistency and reachability. Your fingers will thank you.

  • All Hold Fire hotkeys moved to Q and at grid position 22
  • Applies to all units


The changes to Soviets are meant to encourage more diverse strategies by allowing both Conscripts and Weapon Support Kompenya to operate effectively; Rifle Command and the Penal Battalions have also received a slight reduction in power to lower the reliance on mono-strategies.

Conscripts are being adjusted to deal more reliable damage and have some capability of scaling into the late game by bleeding infantry at range when fighting from defensive positions.

  • Damage from 16 to 12
  • Accuracy from 0.541/0.495/0.334 to 0.757/0.659/0.556
  • Max slot weapons from 2 to 1; no impact on Conscript upgrades
  • Trip-Wire flares now have a 30 second cooldown
  • Orrah cost from 10 to 15
  • Molotov cost from 15 to 20; only affects Conscripts
  • Veterancy 1 now grants 0.92 received accuracy
  • Veterancy 2 +25% Molotov range replaced by faster Molotov throw speed
  • Veterancy 3 now grants +10% accuracy modifier
  • Veterancy 3 Received accuracy from 0.6 to 0.707

Molotov Package Upgrade
The Molotov package upgrade cost has been reduced to improve their accessibility

  • Molotov Package from 125/15 to 80/10

Penal Battalions
Penal Battalions are losing their Anti-tank "sticky" satchel on squads not upgraded with the PTRS package to increase the number of counters that can be fielded and to create a stronger trade-off between anti-infantry and anti-tank. The unit will also now take longer to reach its full potential through veterancy to match their combat performance.

  • Reinforce cost from 25 to 27
  • Moving cooldown from 0.5 to 0.75
  • Veterancy requirements from 540/1080/2160 to 640/1280/2560
  • Anti-Vehicle Satchel now requires PTRS upgrade
  • Anti-Vehicle Satchel will always throw once the animation begins
  • Anti-vehicle Satchel damage against friendly infantry reduced

  • Fire-Aim Time to 0.125.
  • Fire-Aim Time multipliers standardized to 0.5.

Machine Gun Suppression Intel Bulletin
* Suppression bonus reduced from +5% to +1%

ZiS-3 Divisional Field Gun
We are improving ZiS-3 access to its barrage ability to make up for its low rate of fire and penetration. This will emphasize ZiS-3’s secondary role as an indirect fire unit that can soften up enemy positions.

  • Barrage cost from 60 to 35
  • Reduced barrage from 6 to 4 shells
  • Population from 9 to 7

PM-42 82mm Mortar
The PM-42 Mortar will now have the ‘Flare’ ability at Vet 0 to provide vital scouting information and to give the Soviet mortar a more utility oriented role when it is deployed.

  • Veterancy 1 reduces Flare recharge by 25%

Cost of the T-34/76 is being increased to be more in-line with its performance.

  • Fuel price increased from 80 to 90


Due to the current survivability necessity of the Support Armor Korps (T3), we are improving accessibility for players to tech to the Heavy Panzer Korps (T4) after building T3, as well as increasing the viability of multiple T3 and T4 vehicles.

Tech Cost Restructuring
To allow Wehrmacht players to explore more diverse build orders and have access to a more versatile roster we have moved the majority of tech costs from Tier 3 and 4 buildings to Battle Phase 2. This change does not affect the amount of required resource to unlock T3 or T4 directly, however, it does allow players to better adapt their strategies in the late game by making teching to T4 from T3 or back-teching from T4 to T3 a viable option.

  • Battle Phase 2 from 100/45 to 200/90
  • Battle Phase 3 from 100/45 to 100/25
  • Support Armor Korps from 240/60 to 140/15

Pak 40
The Pak 40 is having its population reduced to better match its performance with other anti-tank guns. Target Weakpoint has been adjusted to allow players to have some control over their vehicle when hit.

  • Penetration from 120/110/100 to 125/115/110
  • Fuel cost from 125 to 120

  • MG 42 upgrade from 50 munition to 30
    *MG 42 range from 35 to 40

  • Deceleration from 1.8 to 2
  • Speed from 4.8 to 5.2


We are reworking the M36 Jackson tank destroyer to give it more survivability in order to allow it to face late-game threats. In exchange for the Jackson changes, USF Riflemen now lose access to smoke grenades. This change will ensure that players continue fostering a mixed-squad army well into the late-game, and will also reward players more for using USF's elite infantry.

Rear Echelons
Rear Echelon have been updated to provide a more supportive role by allowing them to use smoke grenades and deploy mines to slow incoming armor.

  • Now has access to the M23 Smoke Grenade; requires Grenade Package from the Rifle Command. Cannot use Smoke Grenades when upgraded with flamethrowers

Combat Blitz is being modified to be less potent as an escape tool, particularly on the heavy vehicles while reinforcing its role as an offensive ability.

  • Received accuracy modifier from 0.5 to 0.75

At the same time, we are increasing British army availability to proper smoke and anti-garrison tools through improvements to the WASP, the 25 pounders and Mortar Pit smoke.

British Infantry Received Accuracy Cover bonus

We are also addressing the issue where the universal carrier is too good at tanking anti-infantry damage with its self-repair ability.

  • Repair ability now repairs 75% slower when in combat
  • Wasp Flamethrower upgrade from 90 to 70
  • Now gains shared experience
  • Bonus hit points from upgrading to Vickers-K/WASP from +40 to +20

Patch du 19 décembre 2017 (suite)


For all core faction changes released in the December Update, check out the Company of Heroes 2 Changelog.

All abilities now start on cooldown
This affects:

  • Infiltration Commandos
  • Partisans; both variants
  • Stormtroopers
  • Jaeger Light Infantry

Call-In Units
A number of units have been changed from call-ins to requiring appropriate tech to be built.

  • M4C Sherman
  • KV8

  • M10
  • Flammpanzer Hetzer
  • Ostwind

Osttruppen Doctrine

The doctrine primarily relies on strong field presence with Osttruppen. However, the lack of scalability of the Osttruppen into the late game hurts the viability of the commander. Thus, to give this commander some staying power, we are changing how the Artillery Officer, Osttruppen, Trenches, and Supply Drop operate.

Osttruppen (affects all Osttruppen variants)
Osttruppen have been adjusted to limit their ability to swarm the field in the early game and be less potent with fallen weapons. In return they can be upgraded to allow them to scale into the late game.

Supply Drop (Replaces Supply Drop Zone for this commander only)

  • Costs 450 manpower
  • Now drops 1 unmanned MG 34 and 1 unmanned Pak 40 at the target site.

MaJ du 26 octobre 2018 "Map Revamp Patch 2018"

Folks, it’s time to reset your vetoes! Why you ask? Well, we have just launched the most extensive map overhaul in COH2 history. Map design is a seriously overlooked component of game balance and overall enjoyability. A few clever changes can make an unpopular map into a fan favorite battlefield…. if players give the reworks a chance.

This map patch has been driven entirely by fantastic members of the community. It’s not an exaggeration when we say the team has put in hundreds of hours of work.

SoE Sturmpanther has led the charge, while working with top mappers such as Rosbone, MonolithicBacon, LordRommel, Capiqua, Siphon X  and Wuff. Together they have rebalanced 21 current maps.

What’s more, the team has extensively overhauled three maps, which will be returning to the automatch map pool.

Two of these maps are a surprise! Stormless put together the following teaser video. Check it out and see if you can tell what maps are making a triumphant return.




Note - In addition to the changes listed below, red cover near bases has been removed on almost all of these maps. Additionally, pathfinding has generally been improved, and cover balance has often been reworked.

1v1 – Map Changes and Main Takeaways

Angoville – This COH classic has seen a sector rework. The unique VP layout remains the same, but the West side now has an extra territory point as a counterbalance. Key chokepoints and cover items have been added/removed/changed – Rework by Rosbone and Sturmpanther

Lost Glider – Elevation issues resolved. Imbalanced middle Victory Point has been reworked. An extra path from each base has been added. Rework by Wuff and Sturmpanther

Anniversary Classic Mini Balance Update


  • Armour reduced to 240 from 260
  • Veterancy 2 armour bonus from 1.3 to 1.2
  • This equates to 288 armour when vetted as opposed to 320
  • Bunker Buster Barrage second and third shot scatter distance from 2.5 to 9
  • Bunker Buster second and third shot scatter from 6 to 10
  • Brumbar Range from 40 to 35


  • Veterancy gain when upgraded with flamethrowers reduced by 50%


  • Veterancy 2 recon mode bonus removed (68.5 sight from 95 when fully vetted)

Zis Gun Bug Potential Fix

There are a couple of bug variants involving de-crewed zis guns in the game. This bug has been very hard to replicate and tackle, as it is related to animation states and would require a programming and animation fix.

However, a Designer has devised a potential workaround should this bug occur. A requirement/ check has been added to the Zis gun and its crews which works as follows.

Naturally uncrewed Zis guns count as "entities" and not "squads" and are therefore not affected by this new check. This bug only occurs when Zis guns are in the "squad" state.

  • Zis guns now run a persistent squad count check when they are in the "squad" state. If a Zis gun in the "squad" state is registered to have 1 or fewer crew members, it will self-destruct after a few seconds.
  • If this happens, a new Zis gun entity will spawn in the same location to replace the loss caused by the bug.
  • This check will not result in any performance issues whatsoever. It is a simple and isolated check
  • The check will not affect in-game Zis gun bug performance, and should not cause any unintended side effects.

Mini Map Updates

  • Mini maps updated for Caen, Eindhoven Country, Elst Outskirts and Hill 400

Map changes

  • Minor changes to issues with Westwall and Lost Glider

USF Tech and Unit Changes

We have made adjustments to the USF teching system to make it easier for the faction to gain its support weapons and diversify its builds. By allowing officers to be deployed sooner, USF will no longer be required to have a large number of infantry units before they are able to start adding team weapons to their composition.

The M15 AA HT and M5 Stuart have also been swapped between the two buildings to emphasize the role of the Platoon Command as an offensive tier and the Company Command geared towards defense and attrition.

Officer weapon upgrades have also been adjusted to lessen the impact of Lieutenant against infantry which is capable of quickly snowballing with its light vehicles.

Grenade Unlock

Grenade tech is being reduced in price to open additional strategies and make it an option for USF for use in the early-mid game.

-Fuel Cost from 25 to 15

Airborne Doctrine

The following changes were made as the doctrine faced borderline irrelevance in this new tech structure.

-50 cal HMG cost from 260 to 125 manpower - 50 munitions
-57mm ATG cost 270 to 125 manpower - 60 munitions.
-57mm ATG CP requirement from 4 to 3.

-17 Pounder Gun target size from 40 to 0
-17 Pounder Gun Weapon priority from 0 to -1000
