The guys from Relic are currently doing an Reddit AMAA (Ask me almost anything), head over to Reddit and ask them a question!
We’re Relic Entertainmnet, a Vancouver Canada based video game studio behind such games as Homeworld, Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War and Dawn of War II, Company of Heroes and Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine.
Our latest game is Company of Heroes 2 and is being released worldwide on June 25th.
Today we’ve assembled CoH 2’s lead producer Greg Wilson (GW), lead designer Quinn Duffy and myself Relic Community Manager Jeffery Simpson (JS) to answer your questions.
So ask us almost anything!
The main thing we won’t be able to talk about is any games we may be working on that we haven’t announced.
Topics so far include:
- Expansions – ‘We do have ideas for DLC and expanding the game. We can’t share what those plans are yet, but if you look at how we expanded the original game you might get some ideas of the scope of what we’re planning.’
- How happy are you with the current balance of CoH2? – Pretty happy currently. The metrics look good, but there is still work to do. We have to dig in and get more details from our stats. But we’re going to keep working at it.
- What type of metrics and stats do devs look at when dealing with balance? – We look at win/loss ratios for each faction in every different game mode and on every different map. We also look at the feedback we’re getting. If it’s split 50/50 between saying Germans or Soviets are OP then we know we’re onto something.
