We are pleased to announce the Company of Heroes – Balance Playtest! Some things we plan on introducing throughout this Playtest are:
1. Host Proxy support. The network layer has been re-written to support host relayed traffic. What does this mean? Essentially, if you can connect to the host of the game you can connect to everyone else!
2. Map Contest. The top community submitted maps will be added to the PlayTest! These maps will be part of the auto-match loop as well as random play. The winners will be announced at the end of the beta, by you!
3. Bittorrent Downloader. In order to assist with the delivery of patches and additional content, an opt-in bittorrent system will be tested to help distribute data to you much more quickly.
4. Daily/Bi-daily Gameplay Changes & fixes. As with the last beta we will be iterating very quickly making the Company of Heroes gaming experience even better!
