Which version of COH1 to buy for multiplayer and how many players are there for that version

1 year ago

Hi guys,
I would like to know which version of Company of heroes 1 should I buy to play multiplayer game cus there are a couple of different versions for this game on steam. I would to play as all four factions but i dont know that if i buy the complete edition, would i be able to play with people who dont have opposing fronts.

Secondly i would like to know how many people are playing this game cus i am getting some confusing stats from https://steamcharts.com/app/228200 for company of heroes and https://steamcharts.com/app/9340 for opposing fronts. (Im assuming about half the people on these charts are playing multiplayer)

i would like to be clear that i want to buy this game for online multiplayer gameplay only. Not so much interested in offline play.

I know I'm very late to the multiplayer era for this game but still any help in this regard would be highly appreciated.

    Hey. Add me on Steam. I'll be happy to explain it to you.

    There are 5 factions:
    Soviets SOV
    Wehrmacht (Also called OstHeer) or OST
    OberkommandoWest (Western Top Command) or OKW
    British Forces or UKF
    Americans or USF

    Main game is Sov campaign + multiplayer SOV+Wehr : ~20$
    USF+OKW : ~20$
    UKF Brits : ~ 14$
    Ardennes : USF Solo online Campaign : ~14$?
    TOW 1,2,3 (Southern Reaches, Case Blue and Stalingrand)
    all Solo or Multiplayer coop stuff ~15$

    COH2 Master collection : Everything. For 40$
    COH2 Sales -75% or Master Collection for 10$

    There are about ~5500 people online at peak time. It depends what your time zone is.
    Check out the website COH2.ORG to have a great idea of how active it is.

    Now, the great thing is... you only need 1 of these factions to play online. Against everyone.
    so Basic game: ~20$
    or OKW+USF: ~20$
    or Brits : ~14$
    or Master collection : ~40$ or ~10$ for EVERYTHING.
    ... Including multiplayer stuff.

    Has this helped any?

    PS: British Faction and British COMMANDERS are a different thing.
    Same for the Fox Ardenes USF commander (Campaign only)

    Sorry. I missed the COH1 part.
    Much much less people play COH1 than COH2 these days. It's almost dead. Not quite, but almost.

    Go with COH1_Tales of Valor for best multiplayer bang for the buck
