    Updates September 26th, 2013

    Bug Fixes:

    Ostruppen

    - Ostruppen Weapon damage from 8 to 16
    There was a data error in the ostruppens weapon where it was doing less damage than we had originally calculated. This was making the unit actually worse than other rifle units (for cost) even when utilizing its in cover bonus.

    Assault Grenadiers

    - Dispatch Cost from 280 manpower to 200 manpower and 50 munitions
    - Reinforcement and population cost remain the same as prior
    This change is to give a temporary gate to the deployment of these units as players are finding it very difficult to deal with them at the start. The munition cost will gate the unit by a few minutes as well as make deploying these units limit the players means to get other munitions upgrades such as Panzerschrecks on the Mechanized Assault Group or a flame halftrack.

    Forward HQ

    - Addressed an issue where the forward HQ was not properly costing the player resources
    There was a case where this ability was not charging the players resources when used (no we’re not telling you exactly how).

    Other

    - Addressed two issues causing crashes


    Balance

    Maxim

    - Suppression from 0.02 to 0.0175

    MG42

    - Suppressed suppression multiplier from 1 to 0.9
    - Suppression from 0.0085 to 0.009

      Small Arms Weapon Profiles

      Focus on better aligning infantry small arms within our health/damage system. This reduces the amount of overkill and better enables us to control how small arms functions within the game. Generally speaking, each weapon will have the same DPS as it did prior to the change. However, the LMG42 did see a reduction to its theoretical DPS output as well as its long range DPS output to compensate for its incremental value over time.

      LMG42

      • Damage from 6.21 to 8
      • Accuracy near from 53% to 47%

      Units and Abilities

      The KV-8 has seen its damage profile adjusted such that it no longer front loads the majority of its damage over a 10 second period. This will result in more of a reaction period for players under fire. The overall DPS of the KV-8 was also reduced from 18 to 15 damage per second. Other abilities have had their cost adjusted to better reflect their value in game.


      Mortar Half-track Incendiary Barrage

      • Cost from 30 to 45 ammunition


      KV-8

      • Damage from 40 to 27
      • Ready aim time from 1.5s to 0.75s
      • Reload form 5s to 3s



      ZIS AT Gun

      • Corrected an error in previous patch; shots fired from barrage ability set back to 6.
      222 Armored Scout Car
      • Corrected an error in previous patch; cost set back to 80 MP and 25 FU.


      Assault Grenadiers

      • Assault Grenadier dispatch cost from 200 MP and 50 MU to 320 MP


      Ostruppen

      • Ostruppen now capture territory at half their current rate


      Target Size and Accuracy

      These changes are meant to work with the AT gun adjustments to reduce the overall variance in weapon damage output vs. lower tier vehicles. AT guns should feel far more reliable as a result.


      222 Scout Car

      • Target size from 20 to 18


      StuG III

      • Target size from 14 to 20


      M3A1 Scout Car

      • Target size from 20 to 18


      T-70
      • Target size from 14 to 18


      AT Guns
      • Accuracy far from 0.025 to 0.03
      • Accuracy near from 0.05 to 0.055


      Bug Fixes
      • T34 can no longer activate ram if its engine is overheated

        Updates
        • Players can now change your active Loadout while searching for a match without canceling their search
        • An experimental "-fast_camera" option has been added to the game which dramatically increases the speed at which your in-game camera moves. To try this feature, players must enter "-fast_camera" into the "Set Launch Options..." dialog for CoH2 in Steam. Depending on the community's feedback to this feature, we will be fully supporting this feature in future patches.
        • Holding down the CTRL key while in-game now displays the name of each squad's owner above the squad. This should make it much more clear who is fighting in larger battles.
        • The in-game player list and the post-game stats screen now make it more clear when a player has dropped and been taken over by the AI
        • Players can now add other players directly to their friends list from the post-game stats screen with the "Add Friend" button

        AI Improvements
        • Hard AI is now more challenging than Standard AI. (Main change is the units that get built and limits on detecting target in fog of war)
        • AI squad can now run tactics while moving. (Picking up weapons/items, re-crewing vehicles, etc)
        • AI squads being repaired or reinforcing will now stop moving.
        • AI squads can now reinforce from half-tracks and will reinforce in areas outside of their base.
        • AI controlled units that want to reinforce or repair will now move toward locations that provide reinforcement or repair.
        • AI controlled half-tracks will now move towards squads that need to be reinforced.
        • When AI squads fallback, they will fallback to the closest fallback location and not all the way to base.
        • AI player no longer waits for one command point before trying to choose a commander.
        • AI takeover for dropped players in multiplayer games will now use the correct AI personality.
        • Easy and Standard AI difficulties no longer take targets in the fog of war into account when planning which targets to attack.
        • Removed the AI class for medium vehicles and added the AI class for stationary infantry to better represent actual gameplay roles of different units.
        • Soviet AI should build the Barracks less often and the Weapon Support Centre more often due to better code for breaking ties in building utility.
        • AI no longer tries to build units to kill enemy bunkers and base buildings unless it has seen them.(Prevents AI from wanting to build mortars and AT in early game)
        • AI will spend less resources reinforcing squads that aren’t useful.
        • AI squads the have waited too long to reinforce will now become aggressive instead of standing in the base forever.

        • Easy AI no longer buys squad upgrades, and Standard AI now buys less squad upgrades.
        • AI no longer uses Oorah, sprint, Steady Driving or Mark Target abilities because it wasn’t using them correctly and it was wasting munitions.
        • AI will now try to use the Infantry Medkits ability on friendly units instead of enemy units.

        • Adjusted ratings for Penal Troops, Soviet Team Weapons, Shock Troops, and vehicles with rear mounted weapons.
        Balance
        Building Functionality
        Our goal was to improve the player’s capacity to make decisions when using garrisons within the game. To achieve this, we improved the readability of a garrison’s structural integrity, making damage more consistent and in turn making it easier to calculate the risks associated with the use of said garrison. Buildings will be far less prone to being knocked down to single attacks at full health as a result.
        Building Critical System
        • Removed the random chance for AOE weapons to inflict up to 6x their AOE radius when exploding near a garrison.
        Unit Behavior
        • Infantry flamethrower damage modifier vs. garrisons from 1 to 1.6
        • Mortar damage modifier vs. garrisons from 0.25 to 0.75
        Unit Animation Behavior Modifications
        This change enables squads to fire within a 180 degree arc, better enabling them to engage other squads while executing combat maneuvers. Previously, their firing arc was far more restricted which lead to a loss of DPS when ordering squads to move.
        Squad Combat Behavior
        • Entities can now fire within a 180 degree arc
        Units and Abilities
        Performance and cost adjustments to units and abilities that better align them with their in-game value.

        Railway Artillery

        Veterancy Rework
        Our goal is to make veterancy feel more unique and appropriate within the context of Company of Heroes 2. Specifically, we want to remove scenarios where veterancy began to modify a unit’s role and its counters. The new veterancy system focuses on improving a unit within the confines of its core role.
        General
        • Attacking a veteran unit will now reward 1.2x its base experience value per level of veterancy. In other words, attacking a level 3 veteran unit will award 1.6x more experience to better reflect their in-game value.

              Mod and Map Making Updates
              • -Dev mode enabled:
                • ​When a user turns on -dev mode (by adding -dev to the launch options), they get access to the in game SCAR console (Alt+Shift+`) and a number of additional Lua functions. They can use these Lua functions to:
                  • Cheat.
                  • Debug their custom scenarios.
                  • Create art (e.g. fullscreen screenshots without the HUD (Taskbar_SetVisibility)).
                • When -dev mode is turned on, players cannot automatch or earn progress, but they can play custom games against other players who have also have -dev mode turned on.
              • Closed a LUA exploit to increase in-game security against potential cheat hacks and exploits.
              • World Builder Updates:
                • Updated the orientation of the _mm_low.tga to be consistent with the _mm.tga and _mm_preview.tga (it is no longer flipped vertically). Any user generated maps should be updated to reflect this change.
                • Fixed a bug that prevented the export feature of the World Builder from working for users who had non-ascii characters in their user directory.
              • Steam Workshop Integration
                • Allows the sharing of custom player created maps easily from within the game itself

              AI Improvements
              • AI will no longer attack destroyed HQs or invisible targets.
              • AI on easy and normal difficulty should clump their units together less.
              • AI will no longer try to get a damage vehicle repaired by a squad inside a vehicle.
              Command Point System Overhaul
              • Command Points are now earned at twice the rate as before
              • Commander abilities have had their Command Point requirement doubled
              The net effect is that the timing of unlocking Commander abilities should be mostly the same, and players should not expect to see much change from before.

              Overall the command point changes are intended to give more variety in when things are available. We previously worked within a 7 point range and have increased that to a 16 point range to allow us more control over this sort of timing. The main driving force behind the change was allowing some units to come out earlier without having them be available immediately at the start of the game, specifically some of the new units. There were some other abilities that also tend to come later than we felt best, but where moving them a whole point sooner would have had to large of an effect on the game’s flow. Examples of this are the weaker tank call ins and economic abilities.

              Additionally, we broke up later game abilities a bit more to add variety in when they come out and distinguish them from each other. In general, unit Call-Ins are available sooner than global abilities and upgrades as these are more often gated by resource cost.

                  The following changes were included in our December 10th release without being communicated out to players. We apologize and are looking to improve our internal processes to ensure that these sorts of 'ninja' changes do not get included in the game without being included in our changelog.

                        Command Point Pacing

                        We wanted to improve the early game ebb and flow by slowing down unit progression. This reduction in progression better highlights the intricate tactics at each stage of the game.

                        Units and Abilities

                        Better align unit performance with its effectiveness in game. A few notable changes include: reduced lethality on the IL-2, it still has the capacity to wipe out a squad but should be a bit more forgiving now. Combat engineers saw a price decrease to better reflect their in-game value. S-mine fields had a few adjustments to increase their viability as well.

                        PAK 43
                        • No longer requires Battle Phase 2 to be constructed

                        • Brummbar target weak point cost from 30 MU to 40 MU
                        Combat Engineer

                        • Cost from 30 MU to 40 MU
                        Commanders

                        Tiger Ace and Soviet Industry were not consistent in terms of value relative to other commander abilities within the game. They were adjusted to better bring them in line while maintaining their unique flair and additional tactical and strategic value to the game. The Tiger Ace has had its extreme damage and health values removed to bring it in line with other units. It now contains the veterancy modifiers granted to a vet 3 Tiger I, maintaining its threat on the field. Soviet Industry has been moved to 3 CP. This reduces the impact of the commander to the early game preventing extremely early vehicle rushes. The increased CP pacing on this ability also makes the commander less punishing, as early manpower attrition is significantly less debilitating to the commander.

                        Elite Troops
                        • Tiger Ace cost from 0 MP to 800 MP
                        • Tiger Ace command point cost from 16 to 14
                        • Tiger Ace no longer reduces all resources to 0. It now reduces MP by 25% and fuel by 90% until the Tiger Ace is destroyed
                        • Tiger Ace previous veterancy modifiers replaced with Tiger veterancy modifiers; this removes the double health and damage in exchange for faster rate of fire, improved accuracy, and improved mobility. Tiger Ace retains its increased sight range and lethal coaxial/hull machine guns
                        • Tiger Ace base acceleration/deceleration from 1.4/3 to 1.8/3.9
                        • Tiger Ace base max speed from 3 to 3.9
                        • Tiger Ace has gained the Target Weak Point ability to chew through enemy armor, drastically increasing its weapon penetration and stunning enemy crews
                        • Model 24 Stun Grenade cost from 15 MU to 20 MU
                        • Troop training recharge time from 2s to 30s
                        • Troop training cost from 55 MP and 20 FU to 80 MP and 25 FU
                        Soviet Industry
                        • Soviet Industry CP cost from 0 to 3
                        Garrison Cover

                        Units in garrisons were too vulnerable to small arms fire, reducing the desirability of garrisons. We want to better align the initial goal of softening garrison cover without removing its tactical value.
                        • Small arms damage modifier vs. garrison cover from 0.65 to 0.55
                        • Small arms accuracy modifier vs. garrison cover from 0.65 to 0.55

                              • Removed intermediate vertex cache and improved batching for a ~70% speedup in rendering UI visuals (also reduces memory pressure).
                              • Aliased cursors and deleted duplicates for a small improvement in load times (also reduces memory pressure).
                              • The Match chat window was not remembering its position/size from session to session. This should now be fixed.
                              • The Match chat was not correctly joined when viewing a replay or starting a campaign mission. Players should now be put into a Match chat session whenever they host/join a Party or whenever you go into game (whichever comes first). Players will be automatically disconnected from the Match chat whenever they exit game or leave their Party (whichever comes last).
                              Networking
                              • Various networking improvements

                              AI Behaviour
                              • Skirmish AI now uses player abilities to produce called in units and no longer uses hidden units in the HQ.
                              • AI no longer thinks that targets a squad can't damage are good targets.

                              • AIForceAttackTactic understands units with limited firing angles should stay farther back.
                              • AICombatTask no longer forces indirect fire weapons into the target area when the squad does not have a target or assigned position.

                              • AICombatUtil has better stationary squad detection for abilities that barrage clumps of stationary squads.
                              • AICaptureTask now runs tactics while capturing when possible.
                              AI Combat Ratings
                              • Updated AI class and anti-class calculations to not use dynamic ranges that were causing problems.
                              • Removed heavy/light structure AI class from data and replaced with one structure class.
                              • AI now generates the AI info from Upgrades by reading the actions in Upgrades and no longer needs hard coded values.

                                Hot Keys and Input Changes

                                The following Hot Keys have been added:
                                • Home: Move camera to starting position.
                                • Semicolon: Select all of your units on screen.
                                • Control+Alt+Comma/Control+F1: Select all idle builders.
                                • Control+Alt+Period: Select all idle infantry.
                                • Control+Alt+Comma: Select all idle vehicles.
                                • Control+F2: Select all units.
                                Other input changes:
                                • The Shift key can be used to modify all hotkeys that set your selection. For example, Control+1 sets a control group to your selection, Control+Shift+1 adds or removes your selection from a control group.
                                • When holding the Control key down and clicking a unit in the global unit control, all units of that type will be selected.
                                • State, duration and proximity heuristics have been added to the code that selects the single squad caster to cast an ability, generally improving distribution. This means that if you rapidly issue three grenade tosses, and have three squads selected that can throw a grenade, you will throw three grenades, and generally the squad closest to each target will do the throwing. This improves several situations where it felt like your abilities were not being cast, but really a single squad was being told to do multiple things.
                                • Demo charges have been set to single squad caster.

                                Small Arms Weapon Profiles
                                The goal is to improve tactics by better defining unit roles; thereby, increasing the importance of unit positioning relative to cover. A weapon profile defines the distribution of damage over distance. Previously, the profiles were generally flat and did not fully characterize the strengths and weaknesses of a squad. Now, a Pioneer squad with a MP40 submachine gun has a very high damage output at close range but a substantially lower damage output at max range. The distribution of damage is no longer blended between ranges; this combined with the increased weapon lethality should reduce the tendency to rush infantry at one another.


                                Keep in mind the weapon profiles represent the damage output of only a handful of units in live. Each profile will see an increase or decrease in damage output depending on the squad’s value. For example, a 100 manpower pioneer squad might do less close range damage than a 300 manpower Grenadier squad despite the pioneer MP40 submachine gun being a close range weapon. Hence, the value of a unit scales the weapon profile accordingly.

                                Grenade Explosive Profiles - Grenades
                                This change removes the chance of grenades missing targets on the outer radius of their explosions. The average damage done to units in this outer radius under the previous structure was converted into a set value to reduce edge cases that resulted in extremely high or low damage being dealt. Grenades will feel more consistent in their damage output as a result.

                                • Hit points from 40 to 48
                                • Flare cost from 60 MU to 40 MU
                                • Scout now fires at a similar rate to sniper

                                • No longer intercepts mines or bunker construction
                                • Now intercepts the dispatch of Osttruppen squads
                                Small Arms Lethality
                                Reinforce the value of cover and unit positioning.
                                • Small arms lethality increased by 15%
                                Retreat Modifiers
                                This change helps counteract the increased lethality on small arms; enable players to better preserve their units.
                                • Received accuracy from 0.5 to 0.4; increasing squad durability against small arms fire on retreat
                                Veterancy
                                Veterancy that previously provided increased armor has been replaced with received accuracy. The received accuracy variable functions almost identical to the use of armor. However, it also acts to reduce unit accuracy over-capping – i.e. units that currently have more accuracy than they. As units gain veterancy, their additional accuracy values will be countered by the received accuracy reduction on other units.
                                • Infantry veterancy which provided armor was replaced with received accuracy
                                  • e.g. 1.30x armor now provides 0.77x received accuracy
                                • Units which received price adjustments have had their required experience per level adjusted accordingly.
                                Vehicle Pathing
                                This addresses an issue where vehicles would potentially move away from the ordered position as part of their three point turn plan. This could potentially confuse the player causing them to issue another order which would further antagonize the issue by causing the vehicle to move further away from the objective.

                                Light Vehicle Turn Plan
                                • Removed three point turns from light vehicles
                                Pacing and Tech Progression
                                The goal of this change is to slow down the introduction of medium and heavy vehicles within the game and better integrate light vehicles into early combat scenarios. This results in medium and heavy armor being set back by about 2 minutes across the board.

                                Soviet Starting Resources
                                • Manpower from 490 to 350

                                • Manpower from 520 to 360
                                German Battle Phases
                                • Battle phase 1 from 25 FU to 45 FU
                                • Battle Phase 1 research time from 32.5s to 45s
                                • Battle Phase 2 from 35 FU to 55 FU

                                • Battle Phase 3 research time from 40s to 60s
                                Commander Card Layout
                                The order of abilities within the commander card is now consistent with the order of abilities in game.
                                • Commander abilities in the customizer now display from lowest to highest, top to bottom
                                Ability Barrage Radius
                                This feature adjusts the size of an abilities barrage radius based on the approximate amount of scatter that will occur. Scatter generally increases based on distance to target, firing from max range will result in reduced accuracy.
                                • Barrage abilities from mortars or artillery units now display increases in weapon scatter based on distance
