Play CoH Online in English

The Company of Heroes Community Website has instructions on how to play Company of Heroes Online in English, even though this online version of Relic's World War II real-time strategy game is being beta tested in China. Though setting the game up will require getting through a few screens full of Chinese characters, the process for getting it to display English is fairly simple and straightforward. They do warn that bugs may still be present, as the game is still in beta, and they also state that even though the game is generally "lag friendly" due to its network design, they cannot guarantee that North American or European players connecting to servers in Shanghai won't encounter any lag. They also warn anyone purchasing anything through the game's microtransaction system will have to call China if they need technical support.

Yes, you have to farm ammunition off dead bodies for a few hours til you can actually afford to have a "firefight"

Lol, "Ni Hao! you buy go- ... ammo nao!" "Cheep!"

Someone tell me how it is and if it's worth being classified as a 'minor' by China to play...

Anyone know of a faster mirror? 10k/sec from the FTP. This is gonna take a couple days at this rate.

try the torrent?

or this?

http://hq-coh.com/files/online/CoHO_Setup_0.9.15.575.rar

That last sentence there might need some editing

Perhaps "warn that" ?

So is this just the game's multiplayer component, or is it a different game altogether?

What he said?

Political freedom can only be preceded by economic freedom which is preceded by monetary freedom.

Microtransaction? So you have to buy your units with real money or are they just doing the silly hat thing like BF Heroes?

Hoping for some Shattered Galaxy-like action...

But I doubt it.

Might try it later.
