[Actu][Mod] Winter Balance Update 2021 Preview v3.0

Recommended Posts

Mise à jour du mod Winter Balance Update en version 3.0.




Main Gun Criticals

While main gun criticals are an issue in competitive play, we do not want to remove this feature entirely from Company of Heroes as these moments can make for intense moments for the non-competitive side of play. Instead, we are reducing the chance for the Main Gun critical to happen primarily during medium tank engagements when under attack from sources that deal 160 damage.

  • Main Gun Critical now has a chance to trigger at 20% rather than 25%


To avoid accidental mis-clicks on ambient structures which the Panzerfaust does barely any damage against, panzerfausts will no longer be able to target them.

  • Panzerfausts can no longer target ambient structures

Puma and Sniper Critical/Aimed Shot

  • Critical against Assault guns now inflicts a -75% speed and rotation debuff for 5 seconds and disables the weapon rather than slowing the unit to a complete halt and cancelling orders until the debuff wears off.
  • SU-76 will no longer receive engine damage from the ability in addition to being stunned.

M8 Scott

The rate of fire on the M8 barrage is being increased, improving its ability to pressure stationary target

  • Barrage reload from 2.75/2.9 to 1.75/1.9

M15 AA Half-track

Adjustments have been made to the M15

  • Should no longer do strange rotations when given orders to attack ground or engage units on the far left or right of its arc; note machine guns no longer follow attack orders due to engine limitations.
  • New ability: M15 Anti-Aircraft Mode. Enables the M15 to have 360 degree rotation, but cannot be ordered to attack ground target. Can only engage aircraft when in this mode. Replaces Prioritize Aircraft



Previously Conscripts received a +10% accuracy bonus at veterancy 3 due to their low stats and lack of upgrades. With the introduction of items such as Mobilize Reserves and SVTs, Conscripts no logner need such high bonuses to scale into the late game.

  • Veterancy 3 +10% accuracy bonus removed
  • Mobilized reserves munition upgrade to the squad Reserves no longer grants +20% veterancy gain.

Mobilize Reserves - Global Upgrade

We are decoupling this upgrade from tech. Our focus with this upgrade will be to make this a worthwhile choice for the player when deciding whether they want to rush for tanks or focus on a stronger infantry game.

  • Mechanized Armor Kampenya no longer grants Mobilized Reserves for free.
  • Mobilized Reserves now grants +20% veterancy gain to Conscripts and Penal Battalion.

T-34 Ram Ability

Due to being an iconic ability of the game, community feedback, and the role the ability plays, Ram will no longer require veterancy 1. Instead, a health requirement will stop fresh T-34/76s from being used to ram tanks and used more as a desperate act.

  • Veterancy 1 requirements removed
  • Ram requires 50% or less health to trigger


The following changes will make the Kubelwagen more effective on the move focused primarily on sniper. Previously, a Kubelwagen would do no damage when chasing down a sniper due to its extremely high penalties on its burst duration.

  • Kubelwagen moving burst duration from 0.1 to 0.75
  • Kubelwagen moving cooldown from 0.1 to 0.8


Panzer II Luchs

The Panzer II is having its detection range increased to improve its ability to hunt camouflaged infantry units and perform a basic scouting role.

  • Camouflage detection from 5 to 15

Forward Retreat Point

The Battlegroup Forward Retreat Point is having its cost reduced to better reflect its current value in-game.

  • Cost from 300 manpower to 250


Infantry Section

The Raid package is being scrapped with focus being placed on other elements of the British arsenal to help take map control. Furthermore, their medical kits are being increased in price due to how efficient they are while Mill Bombs are having their fuse time increase to match other grenades.

  • Raid Package removed
  • Grenade fuse time from 1 to 1.25
  • Medical Supplies upgrade from 30 to 45

Vickers HMG Team
The passive bonus of the Vickers is being changed into a timed ability. This should allow the Vickers's veterancy 1 ability be more useful in the majority of situation.

  • 'Take Aim' replaces veterancy 1 garrison bonus. Improves range by 7, accuracy by +15%, penetration by +6. Cycle a reload before activating. Can be used in garrisons. 15 munitions.

Royal Engineers

Sappers and the Assault Officer are having their capture rate to help increase the UKF's map control in the later stages of the game.

  • Capture rate from 1 to 1.25

Assault Officer

See above.

  • Capture rate from 1 to 1.25


The Cromwell is receiving a new veterancy 1 ability to aid its role as a mobile tank that excels at hunting down injured or lightly armoured vehicles.

  • Veterancy 1 smoke recharge replaced with the 'Hunt' ability; detects vehicles in the FOW up to range 60 and improves moving accuracy by 20% for 30 seconds. 25 munitions.


The Churchill is having its population change reverted. If the unit receives additional changes, it will be to make the unit more potent individually.

  • Population reverted to 19

Quality of Life

  • Royal Engineers - regular and recovery - now share a single selection group
  • All Panthers now share the same selection group
  • Raketenwerfer will now try to reverse up to ranges of 60

Bug Fixes

  • Fixed an issue where the Land Mattress would auto-set up when enemies wer ein range
  • Fixed an issue where the Tommy Scoped Rifle was not using the proper stats.
  • Fixed an issue where Guards Rifle Infantry, 120mm Mortars, and Jagdtiger call-in UI displayed the incorrect population.
  • Fixed an issue were Assault Engineers were population 8 rather than 7
  • Fixed an issue where the 251 radio beacon could not be bypassed by land units.
  • Fixed an issue where the Churchill had less gun depression than other tanks
  • Combined Arms ability for USF should no longer randomly trigger on certain maps when the required unit is not nearby.
  • Fixed an issue where Stuka Recon from CAS had less sight than intended.

Mod Bug Fixes

  • Fixed an issue where OKW medics did not have a healing aura
  • Fixed an issue where the OKW Puma wreck could not be crushed

    • 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.
