Company of Heroes Patches

New patches are now available for Company of Heroes, updating the numerous localized editions of Relic's World War II real-time strategy game to version 2.201. The new version incorporates performance improvements (particularly on single-core systems), bug fixes, numerous balance tweaks, and a handful of map changes. The various patches can be found on The Patches Scrolls. Update: These patches should not be applied to the Steam edition of the game.

I'm pretty disappointed with THQ/Relic with their patches for Steam. They don't seem to be releasing them to Valve for propagation until they get released to the public

Is that what the issue is? That it takes Steam a few days for the patch to trickle down? That WOULD be a Valve or Steam problem when it comes to patch availability, when you're talking patches that aren't being held back at all so that they can be mirrored somewhere.

CoH patches come out as fast as the QA team can push them out. Even faster in some cases, as the first version of this patch 2 weeks ago completely screwed up installations of the game if you were one of the unlucky sods that jumped on it and installed it as soon as you were given the chance.

When you're dealing with RTS fans as fickle about balance as Relic fans are, they don't hold back patches so that anything can catch up except the server that delivers it via the in-game downloader.


That bit about HAVING to patch is definitely annoying though, even for non-Steam users. I wanted to watch a few replays before patching made them unwatchable yesterday, and of course...you can't. Or at least I don't know the way. Patch or quit. I suppose I should quit living in the past anyway...

Hey, we should play sometime Dagok Add Bet to your friends list ingame.
