Several times I wrote about how the Generals 2 should have, "Influence of Environment on game" and many other things, and now Company of Heroes 2 have it. What makes the game much more interesting and more realistic in this regard.
"I wrote this when RA3 was in progress, and I wrote it also when CnC4 was in progress, but EA didn't listen... Ok, this is Frosbit 2 and we will see that magic of new ENGINE for RTS! This is my proposal for better game. For this new engine i think this will not be a problem.
1. Shift of day ant night! It will be more beautiful, more realistic and more cool. It makes warfare much realistic. Etc... When you play first 15min is day, next 15min is night. And units is react on shift differently. Etc... Commando, Spy units should be better at night then at day. Quad Cannon should have longer vision at day etc...
2. When you zoom in your army you should be able to hear them talking something. But in battlefield you should hear them screaming, call for support etc...like in video when quad cannon attacks EU units they start speaking something.
3.Weather and map environment. When you play with EU in some desert map, where is very hot, your infantry should be moving slowely. When is rain and high wind you shouldn't be able to use air units, or they can be used but they will crash after while."
Company of Heroes players are not thinking about who should be stronger in the game. They desire and seek a good and fun game. But here, 98% of forum users not interested for good game. They are interested for stronger USA than the GLA, and GLA does not have a tank, just they riding on a camel and the USA to bomb them with Invisible planes. EA Games this is the last chance for the C&C. 2013 is a big fight for the "Best Strategy" and return to C&C in its best light. Who knows what will be the Company of Heroes 2? And, maybe for a couple of months we get an announcement for Act of War 2? Which is just a phenomenal, their infantry movements, graphics, and much more. But he had not a good advertisement for first AOW. EA, I donot get anything, but I like C&C. You're the one that you take the money. I think it should for you to start listening to the players and you have much better communication with them.
Good luck General!
