Balance Preview Mod [avril 2016]

jzbuyk7.jpg

Le Balance Preview Mod est disponible au téléchargement depuis hier soir via le Steam Workshop (https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=674082796). La bonne nouvelle est qu'elle est accessible à tous puisqu'elle fait moins de 2Mo (le format de cette preview le permet enfin). Elle vous permettra donc de tester en partie personnalisée les futurs changements qui constitueront peut être la future MàJ du jeu. Pas question ici, de 2 ou 3 modifications qui se battent en duel. Nous avons droit ici à du concret, affectant aussi bien l'équilibrage que le gameplay. Rendons à César ce qui est à Astérix, la majorité des modifications sont tirées du Competitive Edition Balance Mod de Miragefla (https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=599470689) comme l'a aussi précisé Relic sur son forum. Plus d'infos ci-dessous :

Révélation

A quick shoutout to "miragefla" for his contribution to these potential balance changes.

DISCLAIMER

Due to the nature of some of the changes outlined below, this balance mod is scheduled to run over multiple weeks in order to extensively test, validate and gather sufficient feedback before any final decisions are made. Therefore, it is important to note that a number of these changes (especially those listed under Experimental) will require extensive validation before being considered candidates for live game integration.
 

BALANCE GOALS

Increase Strategic Diversity

In order to add to CoH2’s current strategic diversity, the changes outlined below are designed to Increase the depth within factions by improving unit viability, creating diverse options for build orders and bringing factions in line with one another. This will create more diverse and viable strategies for players at a variety of different skill levels.

Match Gameplay Expectations to Outcomes (Quality of Life)

There currently are a variety of gameplay outcomes that do match player expectations which is creating a degree of frustration within the player base. A number of the changes outlined below attempt to address this by matching these outcomes to acceptable expectations such as through the removal of “bad” RNG and balancing specific units/abilities' cost vs reward that are currently out of tune. 

Test Community-Driven (Experimental) Feedback

There are numerous changes below that fit into the category of “Experimental”. These changes are fueled by long-time community feedback and requests that more or less would involve dramatic changes to gameplay if implemented. These changes are the least likely to be implemented but rather this mod is meant to be used as a test bed in order to determine if they are viable for the game and if so how well they perform.

 

GENERAL

Heavy armored Tanks

Strategic Diversity

Developer Comments: We felt the risk associated with flanking a Heavy Armored Vehicle was much too great because of the high rear armor. To help balance this risk vs reward we are reducing rear armor on all heavy armor across the board.

• Soviet IS-2 rear armour reduced from 205 to 160
• Wehrmacht Tiger & Tiger Ace rear armoured reduced from 180 to 140 
• Wehrmacht Elefant rear armor reduced from 150 to 110
OKW Jagdtiger rear armor reduced from 150 to 110
OKW King Tiger rear armor reduced from 225 to 150

Mines (General-Purpose and Tellers)

Quality of Life

Developer Comments: We often saw mines wipe full health squads when planted in front of building entry points or cripple enemy vehicles. We felt mines were too cost efficient for what they do so we are reducing the damage of some General Purpose mines against infantry so they no longer one shot wipe full health squads as well as removing engine destroy critical from Teller Mines. These changes will bring the reward of an enemy unit hitting a mine in line with the cost of placing it.

• Engine Destroy Critical removed from Teller Mines
• Deals 35% of normal damage against infantry for 70 damage leaving full health models at 10 health. (General-Purpose)
• Deals suppression on squads hit by mines. (General-Purpose)

Suppression

Quality of Life

Developer Comments: We felt it was too easy to charge into suppressive fire and simply throw a grenade to knock out a HMG team. This was not an intended counter and thus suppression will now reduce the range of grenade abilities.

• All grenade abilities that are not snares have their range reduced by 33% when the unit is suppressed.

Anti-Tank Guns (Piats, Bazookas, and Panzerschrecks)

Quality of Life

Developer Comments: To alleviate the effects of some frustrating RNG from anti tank weapons firing on infantry squads, we have decided to reduce the damage these weapons deal to infantry to prevent snipes on full health models.

• Damage set to deal only 25% against infantry.

Snipers

Quality of Life

Developer Comments: We felt Snipers even when caught out of position felt too durable. We also wanted to standardized all sniper rifles to use the maximum amount of time for aim-time and cooldown. These weapons will no longer fire faster the closer the squad approaches them.

• Target size from 1 to 1.15.
• Cooldown, and all aim-time always use the max amount of time and have been standardized for all distances meaning snipers do not fire more quickly the closer the target is.

Deflection Stun Criticals

Quality of Life

Developer Comments: Some heavy armored vehicles had an extremely rare critical that could stun enemy vehicles on deflection. We feel this is frustrating RNG and should be removed from the game.

• Deflection criticals from Heavy Armor removed

Core Infantry/Small Team Weapon Spawn Points
Experimental

Developer Comments: We felt by allowing smaller team weapons and core infantry to spawn from corresponding base buildings, it could slightly speed up initial engagements, and allow for more meaningful base placements for Soviets, Wehrmacht, and OKW factions.

• All Core Infantry Squads and Core Small Weapon Teams now spawn from its corresponding building rather than from Off-Map. 

 

SOVIETS

T-34/76

Strategic Diversity

Developer Comments: We felt the T-34/76 was under performing and needed some improvements to help deal with infantry.

• Hull Machine gun burst duration changed from 2/1 to 2/2.
• Hull Machine gun accuracy increased from 0.3/0.35/0.4 to 0.4/0.45/0.5
• Coaxial Machine gun burst duration changed from 3/2 to 3/3.
• Coaxial Machine gun accuracy increased from 0.28/0.33/0.38 to 0.38/0.43/0.48
• Coaxial Machine gun damage increased from 4 to 8
• Main gun reload from 6.2/6.8 to 6.1.
• Manpower cost from 300 to 280.

SU-85

Strategic Diversity

Developer Comments: We saw that the Soviets had to rely on Doctrines or would have a difficult time dealing with heavy armored vehicles. We wanted slightly improve the SU-85 to be stronger against heavy armored vehicles while being slightly weaker against flanking vehicles.

• Accuracy from 0.05/0.0375/0.25 to 0.055/0.045/0.04
• Penetration from 200/190/180 to 240/230/220
• Reload increased from 3.8/4.2 to 5.4.
• Target size reduced from 22 to 18
• Rotation rate from 20 to 22
• Cost increases from 340 manpower and 120 fuel to 350 manpower and 130 fuel.
• Veterancy two -30% reload modifier replaced with +30% weapon penetration modifier.

IS-2

Strategic Diversity

Developer Comments: Modified to put it in line with other vehicles and slight boost to its penetration to help it better engage heavier armour.

• Scatter offset adjusted to match other vehicles.
• Penetration increased from 250/220/190 to 250/230/210

Trip-Wire Flare Mine

Quality of Life

Developer Comments: Adjusted the mine to prevent one-hit kills at full health. Mainly done to prevent squad wipes of units leaving buildings. Plant time was lowered and the mine now deals damage to compensate.

• Damage from 0 to 20.
• Is now a Small Explosive Weapon type
• No longer guarantees a casualty
• Plant time from 9.5 to 7.5

Soviet Sniper

Quality of Life

Developer Comments: The Soviet Sniper had the lowest health amongst all the Snipers. Because we are increasing the unit size of all Snipers, we have made adjustment to the health the Soviet Sniper to compensate.

• Health increased from 48 to 64

RPG 43 AT Grenade

Quality of Life

Developer Comments: This ability's current wind up time made it feel unresponsive, thus we have reduced it's wind up time alleviate this issue.

• Wind up reduced from 0.25 to 0.125

Penal Battalion

Experimental

Developer Comments: We are trying something a little more radical. Due to the lack of anti-tank in the Special Rifle Command, we want try giving Penal Battalions a more focused roll as a dedicated anti-infantry unit.

• SVT accuracy to .7/.65/.45
• SVT damage from 8 to 10.
• Cooldowns and aim-times adjusted.
• Squad cost increased to 300 manpower from 270 manpower.
• Reinforce time from 4.5 to 5.4. Build time from 27 to 32 seconds.
• Flamethrower Upgrade now adds 3 PPsh-41s to better mesh with the flamethrower. 
• Flamethrower cost from 60 to 90 and renamed Assault Package.
• Reduced the drop-rate of the Flamethrower to 10% from 33% due to the PPsH-41s that are added to the squad which are considered slot items.
• "Tripwire Flare" changed to "To The Last Man!" This ability is a passive that increases the power of the squad as they lose members. Modifiers are +4% accuracy, -2% weapon cooldown and -3% received accuracy per member lost.

 

USF

57mm ATG

Strategic Diversity

Developer Comments: In order to bring the 57mm AT Gun in line with other AT Guns from other factions in the same Tier, we have increased the base penetration to improve performance when not using AP rounds. Take Aim shifted to a timed ability to reflect its power. Accuracy changed to match other anti-tank guns.

• Penetration from 140/125/115 to 150/140/130
• Take Aim! now a timed ability. 20 seconds, 60 second recharge.
• Accuracy changed from 0.05/0.0425/0.03 to 0.055/0.05/0.04

M2HB HMG Team

Strategic Diversity

Developer Comments: Increased penetration to make it a more viable soft counter to light vehicles as well as more distinct from other HMGs due to its later timing. We also wanted to give the lieutenant tier a deterrent against light vehicles without needing to invest in bazookas. Bonus penetration against specific vehicles to ensure the .50cal can harm these vehicles, but not burst down other light vehicles immediately.

• M2HB .50cal HMG penetration from 3/2/1 to 7/6/5.
• New Ability: Armored Piercing Rounds - Timed ability that loads AP rounds for 25% increased damage and +10 pentration.

M36 Jackson

Strategic Diversity

Developer Comments: Increased LOS to allow the M36 to better kite, locate and hunt enemy armor without boosting its firepower any further.

• LOS from 35 to 45.

M8 Motor Carriage

Strategic Diversity

Developer Comments: We felt the M8 HMC was under-performing and needed a slight stat boost to improve survivability and effectiveness. The AOE drop-off for the mid-far range was lessened to improve the M8's damage output against troop targets when its shells do not land directly as the damage drop-off was incredibly harsh given that the mid-range of the shells are set to 2 meters.

• AOE mid modifer from 0.15 to 0.25
• AOE far modifier from 0.05 to 0.10
• Build-time from 80 seconds to 50 seconds.
• Health from 320 to 400.

Major

Strategic Diversity

Developer Comments: We have significantly boosted the artillery ability in power and lowered cost to give USF some form of non-doctrinal artillery to help break concentrations of enemy units and structures. Recharge time increased to compensate and match other artillery units.

• Artillery delay reduced from 7 seconds to 5.5
• Shells increased from 3 to 6.
• Time delay between shells set to 2 for maximum and minimum.
• Veterancy 2 Artillery delay reduced from 7 seconds to 5
• Veterancy 2 Shells increased from 5 to 9
• Veterancy 2 time delay between shells set to 1.75 for maximum and minimum.
• Artillery cost reduced to 60 munitions from 120 munitions.
• Recharge time from 60 seconds to 90.
• Range reduced from 85 to 60.

Captain

Experimental

Developer Comments: The Captain squad gave USF a very easy access to light Anti-Tank and made the Captain the most valuable officer in the game. We want to try removing the Bazookas on the Captain squad to allow for light vehicle play to be more effective. 
On Me! no longer provides suppression resistance to prevent negation of MGs or suppression based platforms, but will break suppression making it ideal for getting units out of suppression or beaking pin status.

• Captain no longer comes with free Bazookas. Must either grab them from the weapon rack 
• On Me! No longer provides suppression immunity for its duration, but will still break suppression.

60mm Mortar

Experimental

Developer Comments: We wanted to give USF more means to counter garrisons without grenades and a mobile smoke platform as well as diversify their opening.

• Added M1 60mm Mortar to USF Starting Building 

 

WEHRMACHT

251 Flame Half-Track

Strategic Diversity

Developer Comments: We made some slight adjustments to the Flamethrower aim times to allow for the vehicle to be better at kiting, reduced the cost to make it more affordable and in line with its performance. We have also reduced the garrison damage to avoid the vehicle instantly wiping garrisoned squads.

• Upgrade cost reduced from 120 to 90
• Ready aim time from 1.5 to 1
• Flamethrower damage versus garrison from 1.25 to 1.
• Veterancy 3 cooldown bonuses now benefits the Flamethrowers. 

Support Armour Korp

Strategic Diversity

Developer Comments: We felt the Support Armour Korp was slightly too expensive in comparison to other faction Tier 3 and needed a slight reduction in terms of cost to make the tier more affordable.

• Price from 260 manpower and 75 fuel to 240 manpower and 60 fuel.

Brummbar

Strategic Diversity

Developer Comments: Due to its clunky movement, the Brummbar would often get blocked against world objects. We decided to give this vehicle Heavy Crush to improve pathfinding and make it more maneuverable. Reload time standardized to make it more consistent and AOE has been adjusted to improve consistency as the damage quickly drops off by 2 meters. To adjust for these changes. resource costs have been updated to bring it in line with its current performance.

• Cost decreased from 470 manpower and 160 fuel to 420 manpower and 150 fuel
• Reload standardized from 7.5/9 seconds to 8.25.
• AOE mid modifer from 0.15 to 0.3
• Medium crush changed to Heavy Crush.
• Veterancy requirements from 2740/5480/10960 to 2040/4080/8160

Heavy Panzer Korp

Strategic Diversity

Developer Comments: We felt the Heavy Panzer Korp was slightly too expensive given the price of the high cost units it currently houses.

• Cost reduced from 260 manpower and 75 fuel to 200 manpower and 50 fuel.

Panzer IV Command Tank

Quality of Life

Developer Comments: The Panzer IV Command Tank was much too durable because it benefitted from its own aura. To make it more vulnerable, the tank will no longer receive a defense buff from its aura.

• No longer receives benefits from its own aura.

Pioneers

Experimental

Developer Comments: Even though the Wehrmacht can build a trench, this is not as flexible as other forms of heavy cover such as sandbags. To increase the faction's heavy cover options, Pioneers have now been given the ability to build sandbags.

• Can now construct sandbags.

 

OKW

Battlegroup Headquarters

Strategic Diversity || Experimental

Developer Comments: This change was driven from a popular idea that was expressed by the community. Battlegroup HQ no longer comes with Medics but must upgrade to get them. Due to OKW now having full resource income and to bring this ability in line with other factions, this upgrade costs a small amount of fuel.

• Medics must now be purchased as an upgrade. 100 manpower 15 Fuel.

Mechanized Headquarters

Strategic Diversity || Experimental

Developer Comments: This change was driven from a popular idea that was expressed by the community. Mechanized HQ no longer comes with Repair Pioneers but must upgrade to get them. Due to OKW now having full resource income and to bring this ability in line with other factions, this upgrade costs a small amount of fuel.

• Repair Pioneers must now be purchased as an upgrade. 100 Manpower 15 Fuel.

Volksgrenadier

Strategic Diversity || Experimental

Developer Comments: This change was driven from a popular idea that was expressed by the community. In an attempt to break up the Volksgrenadier blobbing we are removing the Panzershrek upgrade. This has been replaced by a package that improves their AI at short-mid range whilst still maintaining some anti-tank to deal with armour that rushes behind ATGs or other units. While the upgrade is not that powerful to start off with, they do gain considerable power as the Volks gain veterancy which has many offensive boosts.

• Panzershrek Package removed.
• Added StG 44 Package. Grants the squad two StG 44s that improve short-mid range combat for 60 munitions. 
• Panzerfaust ability added which is unlocked after a truck is built. (Panzerfaust works just like the Grenadier Panzerfaust)

MG34 HMG Team

Strategic Diversity || Experimental

Developer Comments: This change was driven from a popular idea that was expressed by the community. Community has voiced their opinion that they feel the OKW needs a suppression platform to deal with enemy blobs but also to have additional options other than always blobbing more Volksgrenadiers. To address this we have raised the MG 34s accuracy to improve its damage output against targets at range and reduced its cooldown to improve damage output at engaging multiple targets. MG-34s are now standard in the OKW arsenal. The doctrinal call-in has been replaced by the more powerful MG42.

• Mid accuracy from 0.41 to 0.5
• Far accuracy from 0.14 to 0.28
• Cooldown from 2.5/3 to 1.75/2.5
• Available in the H.Q but requires a Battle Group H.Q or Mechanized H.Q.

MG 42 HMG Team

Strategic Diversity || Experimental

Developer Comments: Replaces the MG 34 in the Doctrine

• MG 42 replaces the MG 34 dispatch

 

BRITISH FORCES

Starting Resources

Strategic Diversity

Developer Comments: The British early game can often be very difficult due to the high cost of their Infantry. We increased the starting manpower to match other factions and to somewhat compensate their early game for their high manpower cost per unit.

• Starting manpower increased from 290 to 340 

Universal Carrier

Strategic Diversity

Developer Comments: We felt the Universal Carrier wasn't a viable option and felt we needed to make some adjustments. We gave it self-repair on stock so it no longer requires an engineer to be repaired, made it more durable through an upgrade purchase, and made significant improvements to the Vickers K.

• Cost increased from 210MP to 260 MP
• Vickers K range from 35 to 40.
• Cooldown from 1.5/2.0 to 1.25/1.5
• Burst duration and rate of fire standardized to 1 at all ranges for Vickers K.
• Health improved by 40 when upgraded with Vickers K or Flame Projector.
• Has Self-Repair stock.

Counter Battery

Strategic Diversity || Quality of Life

Developer Comments: We felt the Counter Battery's cost vs reward was not well balanced and required tuning to bring it in line with other similar artillery options. We also want players to make decisive gameplay decisions where using this ability had virtually no risk associated with it.

• Is now a timed ability. Lasts 45 seconds and recharge time is 90 seconds. 
• costs 30 munitions

Land Mattress

Strategic Diversity || Quality of Life

Developer Comments: Based off it's effectiveness, we felt this unit could be called in too early. To help bring it in line with other Doctrine artillery we have increased it's required CP.

• Increase CP requirement from 5 to 8

Sexton

Strategic Diversity

Developer Comments: We feel the Sexton is one of the UKF's most under performing units. Therefore, to improve the Sexton's performance we have increased the unit's AOE damage, increased the number of shells it fires, and made it fire a little faster.

• AOE distance damage changed from 1/0.15/0.05 to 1/0.25/0.1
• Wind Down from 4.67 to 3.125 
• Number of shells for barrage increased from 5 to 8

Firefly

Strategic Diversity

Developer Comments: We felt the reload on the main gun was hurting the unit's performance and the Tulip Rocket ability's role was redundant with the tank's main gun. To compensate for this we have reduced the reload time on the main gun and changed the role of the Tulip Rocket to be a temporary snare.

• Reload from 10 seconds to 8.
• Tulip Rockets now deal 120 damage from 240.
• Tulips now cause a blind critical on penetration and stuns the tank for 2.5 seconds. (Vehicle LOS reduced to 0 for 8 seconds)
• Tulip Rocket ability cost from 100 to 80.
• Tulip Recharge time from 120 to 80.

Infantry Section (Both variants)

Quality of Life

Developer Comments: Due to the extremely short range of Artillery flares, a unit often put themselves at high risk when trying to use this ability. To bring its cost vs reward more in tune, we have added a slight increase to the range of this ability so it can be used slightly further away from the intended target. Infantry Sections also accrued Veterancy faster than any other core infantry unit so we have slightly increased the Veterancy requirements for these units.

• Artillery flare range increased from 20 to 35
• Veterancy requirements from 480/960/1920 to 560/1120/2240.

Tank Hunter Infantry Section

Quality of Life

Developer Comments: The damage from the HEAT Grenade was under performing and we wanted to bring it in line with all other infantry anti-tank abilities.

• Heat Grenade damage from 50 to 100.

Sniper

Quality of Life

Developer Comments: Due to the short range of Artillery flares, a unit often put themselves at high risk when trying to use this ability. To bring its cost vs reward more in tune, we have added a slight increase to the range of this ability so it can be used slightly further away from the intended target.

• Artillery flare range increased from 30 to 45.

 

Alors, allez vous la tester ? Si oui, qu'en pensez-vous ?

Première semaine - MàJ du Balance Preview Mod

GENERAL

Heavy armored Tanks

Strategic Diversity

Developer Comments: The rear armor on the IS-2 was too high compared to the Tiger and King Tiger so reducing it slightly. Adjusting the rear armor on the Comet Tank so it doesnt have a higher rear armor than the Heavy Tanks.

• Soviet IS-2 rear armour reduced from 205 to 160 140
• British Comet Tank rear armor reduced from 180 to 130

 

SOVIETS

T-34/76

Strategic Diversity

Developer Comments: We felt the hull and coaxial weapon did too much damage in bursts depending on RNG. We wanted to change it so it does more consistant damage over time. We also felt with the increase in performance it no longer needed a manpower cost decrease so we are reverting that change.

• Hull Machine gun cooldown reduced from 5/5 to 3/2
• Coaxial Machine gun accuracy increased from 0.28/0.33/0.38 to 0.38/0.43/0.48 0.43/0.48/0.53
• Coaxial Machine gun cooldown reduced from 5/5 to 3/2
Coaxial Machine gun damage increased from 4 to 8
Manpower cost from 300 to 280.

Penal Battalion

Experimental

Developer Comments: Overall we like how the Penal Battalion is performing right now but we didnt really like seeing the upgrade package overtake the role of the Shock Troops. We are reverting the flamethrower upgrade changes on the Penal Battalion.

Flamethrower Upgrade now adds 3 PPsh-41s to better mesh with the flamethrower.
Flamethrower cost from 60 to 90 and renamed Assault Package.
Reduced the drop-rate of the Flamethrower to 10% from 33% due to the PPsH-41s that are added to the squad which are considered slot items.

 

USF

M36 Jackson

Strategic Diversity

Developer Comments: We felt the LOS bonus was a bit too much, especially when combined with the Veterancy 2 bonus. We wanted to increase the acceleration to help react to incoming threats quicker.

• LOS from 35 to 45 40.
• Vehicle acceleration increased from 2.5 to 3
• Veterancy 2 sight radius bonus changed from 30% to add 5 radius.

Captain

Experimental

Developer Comments: We felt removing the Bazooka all together was a bit too harsh so we are giving the Captain a squad upgrade to purchase a Bazooka.

• Captain now has a squad upgrade to purchase 1 bazooka
• On Me! no longer effects weapon teams.

 

OKW

Battlegroup Headquarters

Strategic Diversity || Experimental

Developer Comments: With the Medics costing resources we felt we can punch up the rate at which Medics heal Infantry.

• Medic heal rate increased from 5 to 8

MG34 HMG Team

Strategic Diversity || Experimental

Developer Comments: With the increase in performance, we felt we needed to make adjustments to the cost of the MG34

• Cost increased from 210MP to 230MP

Goliath

Experimental

Developer Comments: We felt the damage output from a Goliath against an emplacement was too small. Its a high investment, high risk unit and we feel it should pay off if it manages to reach its target.

• added a target table 5x damage multiplier against British Emplacements

Raketenwerfer

Quality of Life

Developer Comments: We felt the Raketenwerfer was a little too easy to flank with vehicles once revealed. We are increasing the firing arc slightly to help address this issue.

• Weapon firing arc increased from 60 to 70

Sturmpioneers

Strategic Diversity || Experimental

Developer Comments: With the removal of the Panzershreck package from the Volksgrenadiers we are happy to see how the OKW is currently playing. We do however notice the OKW struggle against armor if they are not ahead in resources. We wanted to try giving the Panzershreck package to the Sturmpioneers to see if this helps deal with this issue.

• Panzershreck upgrade package added

 

BRITISH FORCES

Land Mattress

Strategic Diversity || Quality of Life

Developer Comments: The White Phosphorus rounds was precision striking weapon teams too easily due to their low scatter values.

• White Phosphorus round angle scatter increased from 5 to 15
• White Phosphorus round distance scatter max increased from 10 to 15
• White Phosphorus round distance scatter obj hit min increased from 0 to 10
• White Phosphorus round scatter offset reduced from 0.8 to 0.1
• White Phosphorus round min tilt angle reduced from 25 to 15

Infantry Section (Both variants)

Quality of Life

Developer Comments: After testing with the changes, we felt the range was too far.

• Artillery flare range increased from 20 to 35 30

Sniper

Quality of Life

Developer Comments: After testing with the changes, we felt the range was too far.

• Artillery flare range increased from 30 to 45 35.

Ah ah ! C'te bonne blague ! xD

J'ai bien peur que le blob soit au plus haut de la chaîne de l'évolution... Il sera différent, avec d'autres unités et/ou d'autres armes mais il sera toujours là, je le crains... :yeux:

Ne voit-on pas déjà des blobs  de st44 à défaut de panzershrecks ?

Si les sturmpioniers gagnent l'upgrade de shrecks c'est eux que l'on verra en blobs bientôt...

Et chez les Brits on rencontre des blobs de piats aussi...

Bref... même avec des unités plus chères ou des upgrades d'armement à payer aussi il y aura toujours des blobs...

Voilà, c'est mon sentiment de gros optimiste... ;)

Qu'en pensent les autres ?

Week 3 Update to the Balance Mod

GENERAL

Infantry Crushing

Experimental

Developer Comments: Infantry crushing was always meant to be a flavor mechanic. We found this mechanic used much too often to counter Infantry. We are limiting Infantry Crushing to Tanks that have Heavy Crush Capability only.

• Only Heavy Crush vehicles can crush infantry

 

USF

M2 60mm Mortar

Strategic Diversity

Developer Comments: Due to technical improvements with the model we will be replacing this unit with the M1 81mm Mortar. Performance will remain the same.

• Replaced by the M1 81mm Mortar

Sherman Bulldozer

Quality of Life

Developer Comments: We are adding a hold fire toggle button so the Sherman Bulldozer doesn’t fire at units that is unintended.

• Added Hold Fire


 

WEHRMACHT

Brummbar

Quality of Life

Developer Comments: We are adding a hold fire toggle button so the Brummbar doesnt fire at units that is unintended.

• Added hold fire

Bundled Grenade

Strategic Diversity

Developer Comments: We felt that Bundled Grenades are under-performing and therefore not meeting original design intentions. To bump up their performance we have made the following changes:

• AOE increased from 4 to 5
• AOE distance adjusted from 3/2/1 to 3.75/2.5/1.25
• Damage increased to 120

 

OKW

MG42 HMG Team

Strategic Diversity || Experimental

Developer Comments: The MG42 HMG Team from the Fortified and Luftwaffe Ground Forces Doctrine will be replaced with another existing Commander ability. Both Commanders will remain as they are in the current Balance Mod.

• Will be replaced by another commander ability TBD

 

BRITISH FORCES

Land Mattress

Strategic Diversity

Developer Comments: We felt the AOE damage spread was too wide and felt it needed a slight reduction.

• AOE damage spread reduced from 0.2/0.4/1 to 0.1/0.25/1

Cromwell

Quality of Life

Developer Comments: The Size of the Cromwell was smaller than other Medium Tanks. We are slightly increasing its size value to match other Medium Tanks.

• Target size increased from 18 to 23

Churchill MK. VII Infantry Support Tank

Strategic Diversity

Developer Comments: We felt the Churchill costs too much for its current performance so we are reducing its cost.

• Cost reduced from 540 Manpower and 180 Fuel to 490 Manpower and 160 Fuel.

    • Bonjours,  Depuis quelques temps j'ai constaté que certain des mods installés pour COH sur mon pc bug au chargement des maps ou in game et m'affiche un message qui dit "Impossible de créer le rapport d'erreur vérifiez votre dossier TEMP" j'ai essayé une manip expliquée sur un forum de Jeuxvidéo.com mais ça marche pas ! Avez vous une solution fiable ? Je précise qu'il s'agit du Pack comprenant COH, COH : OF, COH : TOV et COH : Legacy et j'ai constaté le bug sur Battle of the Bulge et sur Far East War
    • MaJ v1.4.3.21751  - 2023/12/15 vendredi Taille : 232,4Mo This hot fix addresses our top crash from this past week that was causing players to crash while loading into a multiplayer match. This was especially problematic in larger game modes. We wanted to thank all our players for filling out their BugSplat crash reports so that we could diagnose the problem in a timely fashion. Thank you for all your patience as we worked to resolve this. ELO & ranks are now reenabled as well. Bug Fixes Addressed a crash while loading into a 4v4 quick match. Artillery Radio Beacon now stops receiving bonuses to rate of fire and range as soon as the ability is cancelled. Fixed alignment of territory lines and icons on the tactical map for rectangular shaped maps. Fixed an issue where players could not change Company Support options when starting a mission in the Italian Dynamic Campaign. Fixed some messages not appearing when a tutorial is calling the player's attention to something. Source : https://store.steampowered.com/news/app/1677280/view/3891737145570951427
    • Bonjour, Je pense que la version de CoH sur le CD/DVD de CoH Anthology est en quelque sort trop vieille et donc plus compatible pour fonctionner sur Windows 10. Si je me suis souviens bien, CoH Anthology regroupe : CoH, CoH : Opposing Fronts et CoH : Tales of Valor. As-tu toujours les clés/codes CD de ces jeux ? Si oui, alors je te conseille d'ajouter ces clés sur Steam pour pouvoir télécharger le jeu dans sa dernière version et y jouer. Procédure dans ce sujet :  
    • Bonjour, J'ai ressorti un vieux jeux CoH 1 et l'ai réinstallé et joué sans problème. J'ai ensuite essayé de réinstaller CoH Anthology, mais  il m'affiche cela : Merci d'essayer de m'aider !. Bien Cordialement et en vous souhaitant un joyeux noël, avec plein de jeux !.  Henri
    • MaJ v1.4.2.21612  - 2023/12/12 mardi Taille : 192Mo   After the release of our Steel Shepherd (1.4.0) update, this hot fix aims to resolve our highest priority bugs while also introducing some necessary changes. As always, please ensure you are reporting any bugs using our form here.    BALANCE CHANGES   Werhmacht Italian Coastal Battlegroup  We're happy to see people really take Coastal and run with it, trying all kinds of styles and strategies with the Battlegroup. We're going to continue to track its performance, but as a start we're going to tone down a few elements that we noticed were clearly over-tuned.  Artillery Officer  Artillery Overwatch recharge time increased from 20 to 30  Manpower cost increased from 240 to 280  Coastal Reserves  Call-in ability recharge time increased from 35 to 40   Designated Artillery Overwatch  Munitions cost increased from 80 to 90   Overwatch radius reduced from 60 to 55   US Forces Advanced Infantry Battlegroup  Advanced Infantry seems to be having a harder time out of the gate, so we are giving Rangers a significant boost. They will have improved base performance but also scale better with reduced costs and better veterancy, justifying their high cost and upkeep.  Ammunition Storage  Corrected an issue where the Ammunition Storage reduced all weapon cooldowns to 0; now provides the correct 25%   Rangers  Capture rate increased from 1.25 to 1.5  Decapture rate increased from 1 to 1.25   Heavy Weapons expert accuracy bonus increased from +10% to +20%   Ranger Thompson SMG accuracy reduced from 0.54/0.33/0.18 to 0.513/0.3135/0.171  Veterancy 1 damage reduction increased from 10% to 15%   Veterancy 2 now grants +10% weapon accuracy   Veterancy 3 now grants an additional 10% damage reduction  Weapon Crate munition cost reduced from 100 to 90  M1A1 105mm Howitzer  Barrage recharge times reduced from 60 to 45 seconds   M1A1 105mm Howitzer Auto-fire  Range increased from 80 to 110  Ranger Weapon Training  Command Point cost reduced from 4 to 3    BUG FIXES & CHANGES   Art / Animation  British Air and Sea company has new icons.   Fixed an issue where the heavy mortar would animate slower when auto-firing shells.  Beretta M38 has muzzle visual effects when shooting.  Improved the consistency of vaulting over objects. Audio Fixed cases where the Intel did not notify the player when a unit is lost in combat.  Improved the audio of ships engaging in combat in the Italian Dynamic Campaign. Gameplay Observer Overwatch ability can no longer be permanently applied to a sector.  Fixed an issue that allowed some vehicles to phase through medium sized environmental objects, like cars, instead of crushing them.   Fixed an issue with the 254 Reconnaissance Tractor Off-Map Mortar Barrage also triggering the Smoke Canister ability cooldown.   Fixed an issue where converting Scouts to Pathfinders or Artillery Observers while retreating would cancel the retreat order and stop the unit.   Fixed an issue where Designate Artillery Overwatch and Designate Defense Line were useable on uncompleted Bunkers.   Fixed an issue where overlapping multiple Designate Defensive Line auras would unintentionally stack the damage reduction for units in the area.   Fixed an issue where the ownership of the British Forces Field Infirmary and Resource Cache would transfer to teammates when upgrading over a point they originally captured.  Fixed an issue where Pack Howitzer and Heavy Mortar formations would have a single soldier wander far away from the squad upon detaching from a towing vehicle.   Fixed an issue where the US Forces Demo charge did not display its camouflaged state.   Fixed an issue where units could sometimes get stuck when retreating near buildings.   Fixed some abilities getting stuck on cooldown when recasting too quickly (aka spamming)  Fixed Team Weapons not retreating correctly after tearing down   Fixed the 4X4 Self-Repair ability decorator not properly showing a timer.   Mines planted by Panzerpioneers and Guastatori now use the correct model, animation and effects. Mines planted by other units now also use the correct model.  Removed the Churchill Crocodile flamethrower bonus damage against bunkers in Single Player.   The Ammunition Supply passive description has been updated to reflect that it affects all units   The Artillery Radio Beacon minimap range indicator now reflects the updated range when monitored.   The Howitzer Free-Fire drills cooldown can no longer be skipped by using the Barrage ability   Units will no longer cancel retreating early if their retreat target becomes invalid   Improved pathing of engineers - engineers should no longer go to the opposite side of barb wire to cut it.  Updated the Unit Command Card to include icons for the Breda Model 30 LMG, GrB Grenade Launcher, Johnson LMG, and MG 15.    Added a new Visual Effect on facing order commands, to confirm units received the order.   Single Player Fixed some hovering strategic points on the Twin Beaches skirmish map. They are now grounded properly.   Fixed the Focus Sight ability to correctly update sight and range.   Fixed a few buildings that didn’t have Auto-Reinforce set to ‘on’ by default. Dynamic Italian Campaign Changed the Hold the Line objective to focus on the two capture points beside the Flak 36s. Previously the objective told the player to defend their base.   Fixed Companies from getting healed every time a save game is loaded.  Fixed Companies getting stuck in Spinazzola if airdropped on the location.   Fixed one of the Spec Ops Company's upgrades reducing cost of Mechanized Support Center's upgrades instead of Infantry Support Center's upgrades.   Fixed the attack movement preview being visible when trying to attack an enemy target with a company that cannot attack on this turn.   Fixed the Medical Half-Track being available before requirements are met.   Fixed the Wehrmacht aircraft abilities sometimes ending too early.   Reduced the amount of path-blocking rubble near a medical point in Ortona. This change will now enable reinforcements that spawn behind the point to reach the street.   Updated the atmosphere on the Enigma Mission.  When playing a skirmish, the title now displays the squad Company's faction name instead of the default assigned faction Foggia Mission Fixed a fatal scar error occurring when the enemy used a strafing run.   Fixed an issue where some of the airstrike event notifications had no icon. North African Operation Changed the Ajdabiya scene atmosphere to prevent issues when transitioning between atmospheres.  Tutorial Adjusted tutorial mission atmosphere to move it more in line with other North African atmosphere settings.  UX/UI Added a tooltip on a disabled button in the pause menu during the Tutorial   General tooltip and ability icon fixes.   Reviewed negative affectors in campaign skirmishes to display the right color, a description and an icon.   Squad count is now displayed even when only 1 unit remains in the squad.   Updated icons for side objectives in the objectives pop-up to look consistent with icons in the objectives panel.  Using the Afrikakorps ability to recrew team weapons from the medical truck will no longer cause an empty / null squad to be shown in the post-game stats Units tab, as well as in the Replay live stats.   When setting up a match, all game mode option selections are transferred over when you change the game mode.
