View Full Version : any commanders/heroes in COH?
8th Jul 06, 3:39 PM
hi huys im new here,
COH just recently caught my attention so Im not sure whether this has been asked already (the search function doesnt seem to work right for me :( )
I read that Infantry feature at IGN and asked myself if there are any actual hero (as the name would suggest) or commander units (like in dow) in this game, because Ive seen only standard infantry so far...

I dont believe there are "heroes" but we will have officers.
As far as i know from what I've read, that will be it. If you have a paying fileplanet account, then just wait a week or so and the beta will let you know. ;)

I find it quite refreshing really... to not have commander units. Ever since Warcraft 3, every single bloody RTS 'must' have hero units! Such a degrading and vilainous game. Screwed up everything. Don't have commander units! Don't have experience gain! It is not the cool thing to do! Don't do it! Aaaagh!

Even though i really liked the hero units from DoW, i dont think it would really suit Coh. But i think(could be wrong) that the officers may have abilities. Don't quote me though, I'm not privvy to the beta. :(
I think you need the experience gain in an RTS though, its one of the things i really admired about Blitzkrieg 2 and certainly made the game feel much more 'personal' in a way.
CoH has experience gain involved, your troops aquire more exp as the battles go on. I'm well looking forward to it.
