Welcome back CoH: Modern Combat fans!

We’ve been quiet the last few weeks, mainly due to the unexpected downtime of our webservice (which also delayed our recent shoutcast competition). But we haven’t been idle. In fact, we’ve been working hard to analyse all the balance feedback we’ve received in response to our recent 1 vs. 1 tournament.

After some deliberation, we’ve decided to make some conceptual changes in order to address the issues that came to our attention.

Here are some highlights:

The US Stryker MGS has been transferred from Tier 3 to Tier 2. It will fullfill a new role as a mid-game general-purpose vehicle, comparable to the vCoH T17 armoured car, in order to provide an alternative AT option to the existing Javelin team. The Javelin team has consequently received some nerfs.

The Stryker ATGM (Anti-Tank Guided Missile) vehicle has been added as a new Tier 3 unit to replace the Stryker MGS. From a gameplay perspective, the unit is a direct replacement with near-identical stats.

The PLA ZBD05 is now significantly better versus infantry. The timing of its availability has been adjusted accordingly via the addition of a prerequisite unlock.

The ZSD-89 personnel carrier has been moved to the Tier 3 building and is now available without an unlock, to compensate for the ZBD05’s delayed appearance.

The rest of the changes are listed at the end of this post.

We feel that this new design has more potential for proper balance. However, due to the nature of these changes and the limited manpower for testing purposes on our end, balance probably won’t be perfect right away. We plan to hotfix any issues that appear in the immediate future. Please contribute by posting feedback on our forums (preferably with replays).

This patch also includes lots of new 2D/3D content. Alongside our regular team members we again want to thank DMz and Beefy^, who have volunteered their time to help with shaders, models and textures!

The Modern Combat launcher should automatically notify you about the patch and download it for you the next time you start it. If you run into problems with the automatic update, you may download and apply it manually, using this link.

Stay tuned and keep your eyes open for updates at!
