Company of Heroes – Company of Patches

Bought the gold edition of COH recently, I’ll never understand why the patches system is so disgustingly clumsy. Before I can even start a single player game, I have to go through patches after patches, wasting a lot of time in downloading the huge patches. Couldn’t Relic just allow people to use the disc to play a single player game peacefully than being forced to download patches after patches for hours (on usual ADSL) ?

The worse thing happens when you install the game, patched it and then found that you need an install in addition to the key of Opposing Fronts. Installing Opposing Fronts will net you an old version of the tree and you need to apply the patches again.

It might be my first and my last PC game from Relic. I can stand with frequent patches on open sourced software, but not commercial products, especially not for games that should be for fun.

  • OMG, completely agree. I’ve been searching the web in attempt to find a way to get around this.

    Turns out you can disable your network conn and it asks for the CD to play singleplayer.. why can’t it just do that WITH a connection present!?

    2GB of patches is NOT fun!
