    Well, I guess from a gameplay sense they did...sort of. Return of base building and a clear focus on armoured combat. Not really defending it, but...

    I was reading an article in PC gamer, I think, where they were interviewing the Relic team that was developing CoH 2. And, towards the end of the article, the interviewer asked what happened to Company of Heroes Online.

    I tell you what, from the description of how the devs reacted, it was like asking a woman about her miscarriage.

    ...ugh. This is what nerd rage does to you. It makes you type utter gibberish.

    Basically, it's the whole "gameplay vs. story" debate. Sparing a rant, it's a debate I don't think needs to exist, because I think the two can co-exist quite easily. It's just that EA seems to be taking the franchise squarely into the realm of gameplay, after promising at announcement of Generals 2 that there'd be more of a focus on story this time. At least with Tiberium Alliances (another MMORTS) it was established from the start that there'd be no story.
    I figured that it would be something like that. And since I'm in full agreement, there's nothing for me to comment on.
