[Actu][Nouvelle] Preview de la MaJ de septembre version 1.3

Recommended Posts


This will likely be the last mod preview for this patch. The mod preview feedback has been useful, and we feel the update is in a Good Spot™. There will be some minor adjustments prior to the official release.

We will be monitoring some of the more nuanced changes in this patch post-release. We feel certain items will be easier to assess once the update has been live, and more players are testing the changes. Problem items will be addressed in a follow-up patch.

We are planning to release the update in approximately two weeks time.


Leichte Mechanized Kompanie

To encourage T2 strategies and reduce the power of skiping tiers, we are moving the manpower discout for Ostheer tech to the Leichte Mechanize Kompanie.

  • Manpower cost further reduced from 150 to 100

Battlephase 2

  • Reverted manpower change from 150 back to 200


The Tiger is having its AOE reduced on the outer edges to reduce it's killing power and to compensate for the tank's high accuracy against infantry.

  • Far AOE from 0.175 to 0.15
  • Far distance from 3.5 to 3

Panzergrenadier G43

We are reducing the cost of this upgrade to better reflect its current performance and trade-offs with the Panzergrenadier StG 44.

  • Munition cost from 60 to 50

StuG Ausf. E

The StuG E is being moved into tech like other call-in vehicles. We have reduced the amount of CPs to compensate to encourage teching.

  • CP requirement from 7 to 5
  • Now requires Battlephase 2


Starting Resources

OKW is having some of its manpower changes reverted. The previous changes impacted their early game too much with the price increase on Volksgrenadiers.

  • Manpower changes from version 1.2 reverted from 300 to 320

Schwerer Panzer Headquarters

We have adjusted the cost of the Schwerer Panzer HQ to allow Obersoldaten to arrive earlier and give the unit more time to gain veterancy.

  • Initial cost from 100/80 to 100/60
  • Panzer Authorization cost from 100/40 to 100/60


The Raketenwerfer is having its price increased slightly to better reflect its new performance. Population has been adjusted for the additional soldier to match other anti-tank guns and reduce the upkeep on OKW.

  • Cost from 270 to 290
  • Population from 8 to 7

251 Flak Half-Track

We are reducing the smoke cost on the 251 Flak Half-Track to better reflect how integral this ability is for the unit's survival.

  • Smoke cost from 35 to 25; veterancy reduces smoke cost from 25 to 15

King Tiger

The King Tiger is having it's fuel cost reduced to better reflect it's performance and trade-offs when compared to other heavy tanks.

  • Fuel cost from 280 to 270


Fallschirmjager are having their second set of FG-42s locked behing the Panzer HQ to reduce the unit's impact when it first arrives, while retaining a relative timing with their pre-patch changes in terms of firepower.

  • Second set of FG-42s now requires the Schwerer Panzer Headquarters.


To better reflect their performance and the changes to OKW's starting manpower, we are reducing the unit's manpower and upgrade cost slightly.

  • Manpower cost from 280 to 270; reinforce unchanged
  • G43 cost from 90 to 80


The Hetzer is having its veterancy requirements further reduced to reflect it's main target being infantry. With the changes to the Schwerer's cost, it has been locked behind Panzer Authorization.

  • Veterancy requirements further reduced to 1240/2480/4960/6440/8370
  • Now requires Panzer Authorization

Assault Artillery

Previously, Assault Artillery was too random and the shells took too long to come down. The new changes should force units in the center of the ability to move, or risk being hit.

  • Shell count from 25 to 30
  • Now drops 10 of its 30 shells in a 25m radius within the target zone, reducing scatter.
  • Artillery Shell delay from 0.75/1.25 to 0.5/0.75
  • Mortar smoke delay between shells from 0.75 to 0.375



The recent changes to the Bofors impacted the unit's ability to hold back attacking infantry. The recent changes are to allow the Bofors to stop charging infantry squads that attempt to enter the Bofor's range.

  • Suppression from 0.0006 to 0.0015
  • AOE from 1 to 1.5
  • Nearby suppression radius from 0.8 to 1
  • AOE suppression from 0.1 to 0.75
  • Target suppressed suppression multiplier from 0.5 to 1


The recent changes in aim-time had the effect of speeding up the sniper's rate of fire. His rate of fire is being slowed to be slightly behind the Ostheer's Sniper to reflect the smaller squads he fires on, and his ability to harm light vehicles when supported.

  • Sniper winddown from 4 to 5.25


We have slightly reduced the scatter of the Comet to improve its anti-infantry firepower at range.

  • Comet scatter from 5.5 to 5.25


Due to its extrmely high health and decent armor, we are increasing the Churchill's population and fuel cost to better reflect its performance.

  • Population from 18 to 19
  • Fuel cost from 160 to 165

Advanced Fortifications

The previous changes were too harsh on this upgrade. We are toning back some of the cost to better reflect its power.

  • Fuel cost from 20 to 10


Riflemen Flares

The cost of flares is being matched to those used by units such as Panzerfusiliers to incentivise its use.

  • Cost from 40 to 35

M21 Mortar Half-Track

We are slightly toning back the nerf to Whie Phosphorous from the M21 to have more impact on units that remain within the smoke.

  • White Phosphorous damage frequency from 0.6 to 0.5

M4 Sherman 105mm Dozer

To allow players to purchase this unit when they have teched up to Major, we are reducing the CP cost. Additional CP changes will take effect when the patch hits live.

  • Now requires Major tech
  • CP requirement from 10 to 7; will be reduced to 6 for live patch

M26 Pershing

We are toning back some of the Pershing's AOE which previously allowed it to destroy most infantry squads in two hits. In return, the cost of HVAP is being reduced to give the Pershing an edge against vehicles.

  • Far AOE damage from 0.225 to 0.175
  • Mid AOE from 0.4 to 0.375
  • HVAP shot from 60 to 50


Support Weapon Kompaneya(T2)

We are slightly increasing the price of T2 to reduce the rush into T70 and stronger Conscript builds.

  • Fuel cost from 10 to 15

Assault Guards

Due to popular demand, we are giving Assault Guards Thompson SMGs. This should increase the unit's firepower and better reflect the cost and timing of the Half-Track Assault Group.

  • Comes equipped with 3 Thompson submachine guns in addition to their SVTs.
  • PPSh-41s removed.


With its high armor, we felt the IS-2 should have reduced killing power against infantry while remaining relatively consistent in terms of accuracy.

  • Far AOE from 0.2 to 0.175
  • Far AOE distance from 3.5 to 3

    • 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.
