I'm not very good at it either, but I'm planning on getting much better and I'm willing to spend the time training for it :D

CoH is just such a unique and special RTS for me, I'm gonna be playing it for a long time to come.. If you're interested in watching the pros duke it out complete with audio commentaries (so called podcasts), I've found this website (http://tales.tsncentral.com/) to be a haven - I can definently recommend it :thumbsup:
(The website layout may be a little confusing at first, but let it grow on ya ;))

But seriously guys, since we're all still noobs why don't we try and battle it out on eachother? :)

Played a LAN game of Dark Crusade last night. Very cool game. Playing CoH also, but still can barely beat the computer on a normal difficulty skirmish.

BTW jAkUp I've played a lot of RTS' through the times, never got really at any, except for generals, and I definently think that CoH is a GREAT place to start! ;)

I can beat the Normal AI reasonably easy, I also played lots of 3v3 vs the hard AI with 2 more AI on my side, beat those too. Very good game, Relic did a great job. I can only imagine how DoW 2 will play. :captnkill:

I actually played my first MP the other day and it was pretty good. I believe the map was called Vire River Valley. My partner and I were barely holding on to the river crossing. Everytime I built defenses the enemy would wipe it out with artillery strikes. It was a stalemate for an hour. I guess I was the meatshield because my partner built up a force of 7 Pz IVs (I had 2 Panthers, too) and we crossed the river in force, wiped out the arty and went straight for one of the enemy bases. That guy dropped out and we won. Not bad for a noob.

Real good CoH community site: http://www.gamereplays.org/coh/portal.htm (also check out Tales of Heroes I mentioned earlier in this thread).

I'll try to add you fugufish, but I don't know if I can do that when you're online. Anyway where are you from? We might as well give up if we have like opposite timezones :(

Is it just me, or does CoH run pretty chopppy?
Maybe its my rig? But I would think I could run it maxxed out

im pretty sure its just a poor performer, i used to love rts, but nothing has been really exciting for me latly, its all the same old. AOE2 was epicly good, after that though there hasnt been a whole lot of innovation. I also enjoyed warcraft 3.

Sometimes it runs choppy for me when starting a skirmish map. I either restart the map, reload a save or exit the game and start again then it runs smooth. I don't think they quite have the SLI thing figured out yet. The next patch is supposed to fix SLI scaling so hopefully that does the trick.

It probably is an SLI issue. I'm running a single 6800GT @ ultra specs and the game runs really good @ 1440 x 900 with medium settings.

I've been playing RTS games for over 10 years and I'm still not good at it. I usually get wasted when I play online. It is fun though if you can find other people around your skill level, because at least then you stand a chance.

I played the demo and thoroughly enjoyed it but I've got too much other stuff going on to give this game the time it clearly needs and deserves...I might pick it up some other time.

I can't say that I've thoroughly enjoyed an RTS since AOE2 or Warcraft 3. They were both amazing in their own right, and DOTA is still downright awesome.

Alright, I went for it and signed up for Online.

So far I've got my A$$ kicked twice and the one I was winning on my pc locked up. I think I was going to end up losing that eventually though. :(

Anyone have any strategies they would like to share?

I finally got a chance to get back into it last night. I'm about to start the St. Lo mission.
