As a big fan of CoH, I would like to know when the promised solo expansion of Guadalcanal is coming out ?

It IS mentioned in the rule book and as I play my CoH games for 95% in SOLO mode, I simply can not play Guadalcanal with 90% of the firefights using hidden set up and movement.

It was already odd that after this hugely and critical acclaimed Conflict of Heroes: Eastern Front – Solo Expansion was published for the CoH system, we now are stuck with an expansion that simply can't be played in solo mode (not even 2 sided).

So help us please ... to start planning.

And while you are at it: How will the solo mode be implemented with the postponed Conflict of Heroes: Storms of Steel! – Kursk 1943 ? Yet another solo expansion ?

I mean this IS an incredible awesome AI agent you got there ... now ... could we actually ... enjoy it in other CoH games too ?


Remark: I posted this too in the solo Expansion forums: just in case you missed a forum.

Thanks in advance.

I'm totally with you on this post. The AI expansion for Awakening the Bear has in a twisted sort of way ruined CoH solo play without the AI. I'm more inclined to play solo CoH AtB, than GC because of this, despite wanting to delve into GC. The release of the solo expansion was a seminal moment for solo wargamers, and we don't want to be left hanging on GC.

From the thread in the Eastern Front forum:

We plan on releasing the solo expansion for each game about a year after the games release into distribution. This gives us time to develop and play test the solo fully and does not delay the release of the base game until the solo expansion is complete.

I really like the whole CoH series but I pretty play solo because I can't find an opponent. I wonder if anyone plays this by email or live via other mediums by both players setting up the game and making moves like "move to A12". Seems like it would be possible.

Playing this live via Vassal would be easy, just like in face to face play. Playing it via email though would take quite a while as it goes back and forth between players.

I don't know if any of you play video games, but Awakening the Bear is available on Steam, along with 2 expansions. Try the digital version, if finding players is an issue. You can at least play against the AI, or multiplayer.

I have CoH Steam and would like to try some game but I dont see many players there.
Each time I tried CoH Vassal for some unknown reason to me it did not work.

Good Lord, it took like five+ years to get Guadalcanal produced...now you go and ask something like this?

Are you outta your mind!? gulp

Rod, I believe that nearly everything on Guadalcanal is about done...I think Uwe is working on the counters as we speak. But the map is finished and rules are being worked. I know he intends to get this out as soon as he can.

Just spoke with Uwe and he thinks at the latest we should see Guadalcanal about February 2011.

According to Uwe we can now expect Guadalcanal in the fall, perhaps early fall. This because he wants to get the first installment of Gettysburg out the door first.

Forget about the Guadalcanal solo expansion, that's years away...where the heck is the first installment of Gettysburg!? gulp
